As a side note, in case other bitter kittens are into fashion, the model in the Dior picture is only 17. She was a runner up in the ELITE Model Search. The entire series is on HULU. Ugh. I wish I were a world class model…but instead I’m a fat (for gay boy standards) sitting in my cubicle doing data entry while wearing a shirt that used to fit.
Step One: Make your user name “World Class Model”. Step Two: Feel accomplishment. Love, Neva Reese, International Model (who is sitting in glitter jeans and a Target white tux blazer doing data entry at her temp job of seven years)
I’m doing data entry in my cubicle too (Well, I’m supposed to to be, anyway)
Wherefrom came your glitter jeans?? I am looking for a way to spice up my cubicle pant-game.
I got them at Torrid, where plus sized girls go to be slutty. (So says all the fishnets I have purchased from there.)
Oh, I’m quite familiar with the plumpsexy offerings @ Torrid. I shall jaunt on over there and enter my Diva Club number in the hopes that the glitter jeans are still available/on clearance.
Are glitter jeans cool again?? Excellent.
I strolled out of Macy’s feeling quite fine in my new glitter jeans and came home to an article on Yahoo shouting “women over 40 should NEVER wear glitter jeans!” Take THAT, Yahoo.
I did not know the ELITE Model Search was still held.
Some people are built for comfort. Some people are built for speed. I am built for Luxury!
You can be a pin up model in my government issued white collar prison like office cell (with furniture that comes nailed to the wall) any day! We don’t play for the same team but personally I like a man I can cuddle.
Oh, this is the year with French model Joséphine Le Tutour. I picked her out as the one who should win from a photo and I was surprised that she didn’t make the top 3. She’s appeared on every major runway since, so I feel vindicated.
This thread just made me giddy. I too, am sitting my cubicle doing data entry. But I’m wearing a dress. And a sweater, cause the AC is on Tornado Fan mode.
I love the Audrey Hepburn vibe that she has going on here – love that funky vintage-esque yet still modern neckline, but I detest that green nail polish with every fiber of my being.
yes. total needle scratch moment when I saw the nails.
Smart move getting rid of the stitching, but the straps don’t lay right on Marion’s version.
Marion Cotillard is the break out star of Highlander the Series and I am so ashamed I know that (and that Anthony Stewart Head was also in that episode and had an American accent. WTF.)
To know these tidbits of facts is nothing to be ashamed of, but to be proud of your high level nerd status.
I say ashamed because my mother spent part of her husband’s inheritance on Highlander cruises and merchandise for her and her twin – never thinking that I might want to go to college. Ever since, Highlander the series has become something of my nemesis. Also, she never asked me to go on any of the cruises.
Mr. Stewart Head’s American accent on Dominion is not exactly pleasant to listen to.
Wait. What? Now I feel compelled to see who else was in Highlander and I just didn’t realize it at the time. Like young Orlando Bloom showing up in Midsomer Murders.
Honestly, it’s better than most of the crap Dior is putting out these days.
I think this is my favourite wearable dress I’ve seen in months!
It would be rather boring if it weren’t for the brooch though.
I think 90% of the reason why it looks so good is because it is a very distant cousin of the original design.
SO close. At least they wisely removed the shoelaces and the lower thigh embellishment, but the 2014 Dior version of the Andie Walsh prom dress from Pretty in Pink neckline isn’t working for me.
Sigh. Wasn’t buying it on Andie, not buying it here.
Adding to the 80s prom vibe: the embroidered corsage at the neck.
I don’t mind the embellishment there actually, it looks like a brooch and it makes more sense than on the lower thigh. It does look corsage-y though.
Oh, agreed — it makes much more sense where it is than where it was. But even there it kinda looks off balance somehow — like it’s squished in the space between the two necklines.
Which then makes me ask why there are two necklines. Which then gets all worked up. Oh, Dior.
True, although it would look pretty boring without it. I’ve never gotten whole “cold shoulder” (I think that’s what it’s called) style. Why make something that starts off as sleeveless and then add faux sleeves to it.
But really, it could’ve been SO much worse. Nothing like highlighting (one side of) your external obliques and hips with a handy sneaker detail, that is brilliant.
It looks like the lower thigh embellishment ended up at the neckline. Why shoelaces and beaded flowers were part of the same garment to begin with is an unanswerable question.
The modifications were for the better in this case. The original was truly heinous, some gracious stylist must’ve felt sorry for Marion and kept the dress recognizable, but with less Raf Simons-ness.
Two tops, one dress.
looks like the straps on the worlds most basic back dress are falling down to show a Zara tank she’s wearing underneath. go home, Dior, you’re drunk.
“in a modified Christian Dior dress…”
Modified. Like how Jon Hamm is a modified Ron Jeremy.
Isn’t “modified” the way we got Godzilla?
Huh. I actually like a Dior. I love the embellishment and the seaming. Whodathunkit. I think she got this just right. She may get crap from other BK’s about her hair, but I like the informality of it and it suits her lovely face on which perfect makeup has been applied. I was on board with the shoes until the side view revealed whatever the hell that clear wedge thingy is. The green mani is saucy.
The clear part is gross. Looks like snail slime or a saliva wall.
Well, I love the shoes!
Every time I see the runway version of this dress, I think of Ace Ventura at Ray Finkle’s house – “LACES OUT!”
I really, really want to like this, but that is one schizophrenic neckline.
I know. I love her, but Dior is not doing right by her. Her looks have been less and less, and it’s due to their fashion decline.[Personal opinion]
I prefer her version over the model version, but that is not saying much.
Dull but fine, which is as good as Dior gets these days. Glad they fixed the detailing.
Oh no, a Marion Cotillard post. Here is the process that I go through every time you feature Marion Cotillard:
While taking a break from work, I pay a visit to TLo and suddenly, I see the thumbnail of Marion Cotillard’s face. I get excited because she’s so chic and likeable and FRENCH, and I still distinctly remember how great she was in La Vie En Rose. But then my excitement quickly dissipates because I know that she’s going to be wearing some hideously fucked up Dior concoction. So I click on the post, scroll down, and realize that it’s not THAT hideous or fucked up, in comparison to their other concoctions. So I go through the bargaining phase and I think, welll…..? This is kind of… cute? Right? Maybe? And I spend a good minute trying to reason myself into liking whatever she’s wearing. But then that minute passes and I go through the acceptance phase, where I think “let’s be fucking honest here, this is not that good.” After this step, I experience the phase where I resent myself for trying to get excited about a dress that is both basic AND weird at the same time, and somehow achieves the feat of having conflicting necklines. CONFLICTING NECKLINES! WHAT? UGH!
This concludes the 12-step program that is Viewing A Marion Cotillard Post on TLo. Thank you for stopping by.
I do not think the problem is Marion Cotillard so much as it is Dior! Dior has really gone downhill fast IMHO.
Oh I’m well aware that Dior is the problem, not her. I’m just explaining the process I go through each time, because I know she could look SO much better than this. It’s devastating, really — I mean screw West Africa and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and Ukraine and Iraq and everything else, this is the real devastation.
Haha I’m not sure if my sarcasm is translating properly…
I hoped that’s what it was, but it was still a little startling to read.
I posted something similar before I’d read this post but you’ve said it much better. I ultimately landed on liking this, but my brain just never knows what is right when it comes to Marion.
Lol — I have my own minor version of this. Do you by chance remember the peacock blue and cream Dior she wore on the red carpet last year? (Thank you, Google: SAG awards, 2013.) She looked so chic and fresh…I just loved that dress, the single-strand of sparkly diamonds, her makeup…the air of cool confidence she projected. But now it seems I’m forever doomed to disappointment, because I compare everything she wears to that !!
That was one of my favorite red carpet looks EVER. Just flawless. And yes, everything else does suffer in comparison.
Yes, totally — “chic and fresh” is the perfect way to describe that look. Everything suited her so well, her hair and makeup were great, and it was all just fashion forward enough without being too bizarre. Sigh, let’s all go back to that time.
This is pretty much what I set myself up for whenever I read “Dior” in the post title. For some reason, I still hold out hope.
The hair … the hair. Ugh.
at least its well-tailored
For once I think the Dior Runway version didn’t need the “real world” intepretation. It’s nice though. Marion continues her streak of only getting the most wearable Diors leaving the clunkers for her American counterparts.
As the first and most heavily abused spokesmodel of theirs, I think she deserves it.
She finally god fed up with Dior’s fuckery and took matters into her own hands. You go, girl.
Not only is she wearing a Dior (automatically questionable these days), they matched her eye shadow to the embellishment. And what is with the green nails? This is not a good way to start a Friday.
Marion has found the only way to work the football dress! By turning it into a completely different dress!
This would not be as interesting if it didn’t have that broach which is beautiful and totally makes the look.
I have such a blind spot when it comes to Marion Cotillard. She is so gorgeous and innately chic and FRENCH that she makes me love things I would ordinarily hate. I think, on someone else, this double neckline would bug. But she is inexplicably making it work. It helps that the fit on that dress is impeccable. I do loathe the green nail polish, though.
my thoughts exactly.
C’est magnifique! !
Classic and gorgeous
I LOVE the modified version of this dress on her. Chic and elegant and very French. I hate the runway version, though.
This. The runway version is weird and sporty and wrong. Her version is fresh and chic and beautiful. Love it.
We’re some of the few. That’s ok with me though; we can stick together.
I absolutely hate this dress. Ugh. Hate hate hate. I hated it before I saw it was also the baseball laces dress that’s been in every magazine this season, which I also hated. Fug. She’s so gorgeous and such a consummate movie star, and the juxtaposition of that horrible neckline with her million-dollar face just confuses my brain and hurts my eyes. Girl, they are not doing right by you.
At least it no longer looks like a baseball and I say this as a fan.
Baseball: great game, terrible fashion inspiration.
Next up: Base and catcher/pitcher inspired designs.
This dress is confused and doesn’t know what it wants from its life. This dress needs to make a choice.
The shoes look like they fit. And for some reason, I love them.
She is one woman who always looks chic even when she is wearing less than gorgeous Dior Couture. This dress has some issues yet she looks effortlessly stunning!!!
I don’t like the tricky straps, but the dress would be a boring tank without them, so I can’t call that a successful bit of couture. And I hate the green nails. She sure is naturally pretty, though, and she’s pulling this off as well as anyone possibly could.
So they couldn’t decide on a neckline, obviously. By Dior’s late standards, this is a knockout, and by that, I mean I’m blown away that it’s not completely and utterly hideous.
Yup. Congrats, Simons (you awful, blasted, thrice-damned wretch), Dior is probably taking a break from rolling in his grave with this one.
Pretty much my POV on this. Sadly.
She is obviously a Seahawks fan because why else would she put that hideous color on her nails?
The best thing Dior’s pulled out of the reject pile for her in quite a while. It’s really flattering.
And has the poor darling skinned her knee?
This skánk is so average I can’t understand how she is a movie star. She’s an awful actress and very ugly.
She totally redesigned that Dior, and it is a good thing she did. She looks great.
I think she looks amazing.
