Okay, this girl’s losing it.

We’re gonna file this under “Outfits she’s going to regret when she’s in her thirties,” pat her on the head, and leave her to it. None of the jokes that spring to mind are generationally appropriate. If we made a L’il Abner joke, she wouldn’t get it. Or an Ellie Mae joke, for that matter. Hell, our first thought was, “She looks like she’s getting ready to do a tap number in the middle of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” There’s just no way to make a timely joke about such a goofily retro look.

That top looks like a repurposed Christmas tablecloth.

    Is that fabric seersucker plaid? And the makeup is OTT severe. Poor girl.

  • RussellH88

    There’s something quaint about its ugliness, like its ugliness from a more wholesome time where she’d be the annoying kid sister in Summer Stock or something.

    • demidaemon

      I see what you are saying. She looks like the tacky girl you see in every musical, who is usually a villain or the runner up in the romance. However, that points to all the wrong things with the outfit.

  • kimmeister

    She does look unreasonably cute in the cigarette pants though. And I’m pleased that she’s not sporting a high neckline. I’ll just pretend that the section between her shoulders and belt doesn’t exist.

  • Sarah

    Take the….bicep flounces off, and maybe. MAYBE. Even though it is rather Festivus.

    • Violentcello

      Bicep flounces! Things we shouldn’t have to say shouldn’t be there.

      • KateNJones

        I just got


    • I have a lot of grievances to air about those flounces.

    • evave2

      I second Violentcello. Bicep flounces just sound WRONG.

      Is the makeup for indoors and looks harsh outdoors? Because she looks like her features have been cut onto her face.
      I will say she looks 1000% better than the model. That whole look is just frightening.

      Those pointy flats look like you could climb a chain link fence UPRIGHT.

      • Sarah

        Ha THAT’s what those are for…

    • MariaCookie

      without the bicep scrunchies and the mother of the bride shoes, it could be a cute look. The top would still look a little cheap, tho.

  • marlie

    At least it’s not as bad as the version on the model. It’s still ugly, though. And totally a Christmas tablecloth.

  • Trishington

    Oy. Mary Tyler Moore (circa The Dick Van Dyke Show) meets SJP in McQueen at the 2006 Met Gala. Redeemed only by those shoes and her saucy ‘tude.

    • Frank_821

      I was thinking Laura Petrie too-doing her chaines turns

  • SugarSnap108

    The enormous plaid scrunchies around her biceps are puzzling.

  • Glam Dixie

    Didn’t you have to have IT at some point in order to lose IT? Or did I miss that part? She’s headed to a party with her friends at the cement pond out behind the house!

    • demidaemon

      Perhaps the it TLo is referencing is either a)sanity or b) sight. I assume she was once in possession of at least one of those two attributes.

  • Beardslee

    I could only forgive her for this if she could indeed dance like the fellas in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

  • Thomas

    She looks like she belongs in Whoville.

  • Latin Buddy

    Hm….I think if you made a “She looks like Topanga on her way to the school dance” reference, she’d get it.

    • Shelby

      No, I think she’s even too young for that one. 🙂

  • Oh, let’s all Old People Reference. Lucy wouldn’t even want to be in Ricky’s show if she wore that.

    • J-Ko

      They call me Sally Sweet
      I’m the queen of Delancy Street
      When I start to dance everything goes chick-chicky boom chick-chicky boom

  • J.W.

    She looks like someone who was in a schoolyard fight and is pleased she won.

  • decormaven

    This outfit is from the Holidaze collection, yes? Red plaid shirt, black pants and black embellished pumps- save it for the office Christmas party.

  • Anna

    LOL. There has to be an algorithm for how pleased with herself a celebrity looks and how it rises exponentially the more fucked up their outfit is.

  • Kent Roby

    She looks like an updated Little Bo Peep at a Christmas party, complete with sheepish grin. (Sorry!)

  • vitaminC

    Reese Witherspoon Jr. got into a fight during recess… mom’s gonna be so pissed.

  • spirit52


  • Karen Belgrad

    And I looked at the sleeves and thought of the “tear” affect on the season premiere of Project Runway’s winning outfit. And then I pleaded with the Bitter Kitten overlords and Reese Witherspoon that it’s not becoming a thing.

  • Kitten Mittons

    Is…she a lumberjack? Is she OK??

    • Lisalady161

      So glad you thought of that one, darling!

      • Kitten Mittons

        Someone had to ask. Those sleeves are concerning. 😉

    • Qitkat

      See my comment of a few minutes ago, I just got around to reading this, and did not see your comment first.

  • CPK1

    Love the pants and shoes but it is pure Ellie Mae!!

  • She does not have the neck for that top. It looks like her shoulders totally hulked out on her and ruined her blouse.

  • LongTall_Sally

    Its as if Angela Chase met Molly Ringwald’s character from “Pretty in Pink”.

  • nannypoo

    Well, it’s better on her than on the model. Of course, that’s because there’s more of it on the model.

  • Anapestic

    I’m not sure the world is ready for a Beverly Hillbillies remake, but I can see her wearing this out to the cement pond on a cool day.

    I also think Petticoat Junction, but I’m flummoxed as to whether she’s Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, or Betty Jo.

  • smh4748

    “Christmas in LA, 1957”
    Starring: Chloe Moretz!

  • Dino Bonačić

    I kinda like it… Am I weird?

    • demidaemon

      Possibly. It’s okay.

  • Monkey Toe

    A seersucker tartan rumba shirt. With mom capris.

  • rhône

    i liked it at first glance but the more i examined it the more i hated it. i see where she’s going but she didn’t stick the landing with the exact pieces she chose.

  • greymain

    Did her gays quit or something? Oh my.

  • MilaXX

    I get matador. Was she going to a bull fight?

  • Jane Duff

    …clearly an “after” pic following attack by random “Carrie” hater

  • Grumpy Girl

    And I was distracted by the orange handbag . . .until I realized it was floating beside her . . . because it was someone else’s. Nope, nothing I can say about the outfit itself besides, that’s what the teen years are for, wearing wierd-ass shit we can’t believe when we later see pictures.

  • Janet B

    I like her hair.

  • alyce1213

    I think if the top didn’t have the superfluous sleeve ruffles, if it were just sleeveless, with these pants and a cute pair of flats, we’d have an outfit.

    • My thoughts exactly. Take off the dust ruffles. I have occasionally performed a song called “What Was I Thinking?”, about bad wardrobe choices. Chloe needs to have this playing in her dressing room at all times.

  • CT14

    It’s not see-through, so it’s an improvement.

    A tiny one, but an improvement nonetheless.

  • She looks so pleased with herself, I can’t. How can she not see how that top obliterates the shape of her breasts and waists in three fell stripes?

  • Belvane

    No, not Seven Brides — Brigadoon!

  • Lori

    That’s plaid seersucker, right? Why would that even exist?

  • stubbornthoughts

    I feel like this girl needs some lessons from pre-boob-job Kate Hudson for the right way to wear clothes with barely anything there. First line of business, STAND UP STRAIGHT. Push them shoulders back, girl!

  • Froggae

    I’m not worried yet. If she were really losing it, she’d have worn the skirt.

  • RoseJB

    And the women were sobbin’ indeed.

  • SoAnnaPropriate

    How the hell does this shit get off the runway, much less on it? Who looks at that and says YESSS?

  • quiltrx

    Well, I really like the shoes. The pants look really good on her, EXCEPT I don’t see that waistline as one to be seen–the top needs to hang over it.
    I can’t even think of anything funny to say about the top–it has stunned my brain.

  • Jordan

    She’s young and beautiful and pulls it off! Love the hair!

  • SophieCollier

    I love the pants and shoes, though.

  • SistaT

    I think she looks super cute. I am all sorts of off today.

  • BLauDGaspode

    I immediately thought Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Or a Scottish Flamenco dancer. You know, same difference.

  • She clearly adores it, it’s hilarious to us ancianos, so it’s basically the best outfit ever for a seventeen year old girl. 😀

  • smayer

    I’ve seen worse.

  • Columbinia

    Yep, it’s Christmas in August.

  • Cute girl but that outfit looks like she’s part of the back up dancers for Celtic Thunder!

  • guest2visits

    This…this..this cutaway or gap shoulder thing. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. It always looks Hee Haw or trailer park.
    Pretty pants, shoes. Horrid hootenanny shirt.

  • KateNJones

    I just got


  • demidaemon

    I thought she looked like a Christmas matador, personally.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Unfortunately we’re watching her go through her awkward years. I think back to my own poor instincts at that age. (Hell, even most of college)

  • altermyego

    The woman next to her that has on black pants, love the zippers! Totally cute pair of pants. I want.

  • ktr33

    Horrible, horrible top, but I don’t see anything wrong with the pants, tho not very summery.

  • Liz

    This is most definitely Hannah’s great great granddaughter.

  • James

    I don’t see anything wrong with those pants and they look good on her, it’s the top that’s taking it into the Seven territory. But she is 17 so have fun girl. We all did and got some hilarious pictures and fun memories out of it!

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Top would be better if it was paired with leather pants and motorcycle boots. Though probably not on Chloe.

  • Monabel

    Aww, lighten up everyone! Goofily retro is better than so much of the stuff we see.

  • lobsterlen

    She is showing her solidarity for the upcoming Scottish referendum vote!

  • Lisalady161

    Agreeing to disagree with the Uncles on this one. That top is adorable. What takes it to tackytown are the shoes. Put her in a pair of nice Oxfords to add a bit of edge to it and she’s ready to rock.

  • RescueMe23

    It looks like someone tried to rip the “sleeves” off and failed. They should have tried harder.

  • siriuslover

    Who is that guy in the pink shirt with two pairs of sunglasses? Is one pair Chloe’s? I don’t have an intelligent comment to make about her outfit. Not a fan of the high high waisted pants.

  • NWMothra

    What the shiny patch on the model’s foreheed?

  • Clash D

    She looks the Octoberfest beer maid with tuxedo pants.
    Cute ring, though.

  • irielle

    Perhaps she’s channeling Chloe Sevigny and creating characters? I think she’s Lola from the La Rien School of Dance, and she only teaches after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Her top was made by her grandmother out of one of Lola’s old school uniform skirts.

  • Qitkat

    And yet I think she looks really cute.

    “lumberjack sexy” — anyone watch the show Rowhouse Showdown? All the designers are train wrecks, with what they think are clever descriptions of their design style. Lumberjack sexy particularly made no sense til I saw this look on Chloë.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Great minds, and all that.

      I’ve never seen that show. If it gave Chloe this idea, then I may pass. Lumberjack sexy, my word…..

  • fananafanafophalec

    It’s like she wants to be babymadge

  • AthenaJ

    She’s late for her shift at McDowell’s.
