Mireille Enos in Etro at the “If I Stay” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on August 21, 2014

God, she always looks so happy on the red carpet. It makes us feel like crap because we aways want to shuffle her quietly into a waiting limo and send her home. And that’s terrible, we know. We’re awful. Especially since she’s looking pretty put together for someone who gave birth less than a month ago.

But COME ON:

She’s a conehead in ’90s club wear! How is that not a horrible mistake?!?

We don’t know much about this lady’s life (although we loved her in Big Love, The Killing and even, surprisingly, World War Z), but having seen her navigate the red carpet several times now, we think we can surmise what her personal style is actually like out in the real world and how she’s doing a bad job of interpreting it for the red carpet. We look at the long hair, the flashy cocktail rings, the (it has to be said) lack of facility with or understanding of makeup, and the tendency to try out really wild prints or do really odd things with accessories, and we see a gal who’s day-to-day style is probably really low-key with a little bit of roughness to it; country girl with a tiny bit of rocker chick. And if that’s not her casual style, it should be because it suits her. The downside: if there’s a typical mistake for that style archetype, it’s that she sometimes doesn’t know how to dress up without going really flashy or awkward somehow. It always feels like Mireille tries to “fancy” herself up for the red carpet rather than finding a way to dress for the red carpet that suits her best and reflects who she is.

We could get behind either the jacket or the pants, but not both at the same time. We tend to prefer the pants because the jacket makes her look wide. Our take would be: keep the pants, lose the jacket, add a lightweight sweater or blouse up top, pull the hair back (PLEASE. You can tell she’s not hiring a hairstylist because they’d have that shit all pinterest-braided up), and hire someone to do your makeup; someone who actually knows how to do it. Also: you just popped out a human, woman. There’s no need to be torturing your feet like that. Cute flats, please.
