Sweetie, no. Not even you. The chains and the gigantic satin bra and the boy shorts and the sheer dress that looks like it’s about to slide right off you – it’s all one big mess of NO.

And for the record, as much as we think you’ve been killing it on the style front lately, missy (present entry notwithstanding), we think it’s time to get away from the soignée white or silver looks. You do look good in them, but it’s starting to become a bit expected, especially when so many of them are sheer and panty-baring. Maybe this was an attempt to switch things up, but we’d rather see you pick another style and color to play with rather than going the same route with a bunch of screwy twists.

  • Is it just me or does outer fabric look like bubble wrap in the wide shots?

    • kimmeister

      It’s not just you.

      • How amazing would it be if it were and she were to suddenly break her serenity pose and start joyously and enthusiastically popping all the bubbles on her dress?

        • kimmeister

          That is performance art just waiting to happen!

        • DesertDweller79

          That is the only thing that would redeem this look.

          • GemFemme

            Now I want an actual bubble wrap dress for Christmas.

  • Kristin

    This is a ‘don’t’ even for sleepwear.

  • Mothra

    nothing like white gauze for late october.

  • Lucía Gavello

    Her outfit is terrible and still my first reaction is “boy is she beautiful”. Such is the power of genes.

    • Shannyn Marie

      Yes genes and her nonchalance about her beauty. “Yes my dress is mad hiddy but I’m gorgeous and I know you agree with me.”

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Gorgeous young woman who simply needs to try some looks that are not sheer over lingerie.

  • Buellie413

    Girl, you can only rest on your genetic lottery winnings for so long.

    • julnyes

      I don’t know, both her parents are still doing it… she may be able to rest on her genetic laurels forever.

    • ktr33

      Yeah, but for a pretty loooong time, I’d posit, based on how her genetic sponsors seemingly don’t age.

  • kimmeister

    I don’t understand the design of that gigantic satin bra at all. Who designs something like you’re wearing a 36DDD bra that’s not your size?

  • Is this the only kind of dress she’s allowed to wear now? See through over underwear?

  • I really like this look…for the beach! Was this event on the beach?

  • Nance

    She could lay off the body chains as well while she’s at it.

    • Wink

      I think the body chain is part of the ‘design’ of the dress.

  • Shannyn Marie

    I accept that girl is gonna default to a panty display when it comes to her red carpet M.O.

  • TamiSeattle

    So the designer of this challenge didn’t have time to finish the seaming? Nina must’ve blew her stack when she saw this!

  • Little_Olive

    That bra thing… it’s like a DD was mislabeled as B but she put it on anyway.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I like the idea- the body chain with the slip dress, with the clean face/hair- hate the execution.

    • MilaXX

      Yeah that biggest negative for me is the satin bra. Not sure what else would work though, maybe a tube top?

      • Boulderista

        Maybe a satin bra that fits? Other than that, I like the idea too.

  • ChelseaNH

    You’d think Zoe Kravitz + Calvin Klein would automatically equal “Yes” but the math is off this time.

    • Wink

      Calvin Klein fell asleep listening to rock music, then woke up and designed this fuckery … aka, rocker-chick nightgown.

  • carolina_dawn

    Granny’s bra and panties. Why?

  • VCR1

    This dress looks poorly made. I don’t like how it looks unfinished. She’s beautiful but this is tragic.


      I was going to say the same thing. What is with the seams in that keyhole cutout. Did the seamstress say “I lost my shears, give me a box cutter”?

  • beckly

    That is an unspeakable dress. I’m starting to feel confused by her affect – is she passive-aggressively turning up in whatever the freak she feels like, passively turning up in whatever she’s told to so long as it’s white, or taking beta blockers and misfiring her choices? Who is driving her?

  • Gatto Nero

    The chains and visible underwear are awful. BUT this is unusually minimalist for her, and I think the silhouette works really well. If it weren’t sheer, we might have something here.

  • oneWEIRDword

    Yyyyyeeee…no. Great face and poise as usual. She comes within a whisker of pulling this off, imho.

  • Kaonashi

    I liked this in the thumbnail but then opened the post and saw panties. NO.

  • DesertDweller79

    This is absolutely terrible. And this is the exact look from the runway, which was also absolutely terrible. Ugh, no.

  • fananafanafophalec

    Dammit if she had to pick a drag queen as inspiration why’d she have to pick Pearl

  • Oh, I LIKE the body chains. Maybe because I want to appropriate them for my fictional worlds.

  • E. D.

    NO on the boyshorts. She does need to switch things up.

  • steph

    She’s turning into an “of course”.

    • Truthiness2U

      What do you mean turning?

      • steph

        Lately everything she wears is the same garment and the same look over and over again. Similar to Lea Michelle and her wanna be sex kitten look.

        • Truthiness2U

          Sarcasm doesn’t translate well on the interwebz. I meant that there wasn’t any turning about it, she already IS an “of course.”

          • steph

            yep, totally missed that. 🙂

  • mar

    Are those loose threads on the bottom edges of her satin bra? The whole outfit is a mess.

  • The earrings look like a citrine version of the blue topaz ones Cathy Cambridge wore the other day (but fewer diamonds. And probably 1/3 of the price). And there are two people who don’t often make it to the same sentence.

  • boweryboy

    She’s resting on pretty because damn is she gorgeous. This ouchfit, no so much.

  • stellavision

    This is Calvin Klein?!

  • Fan

    Giant panties look like a diaper.

    • kimmeister

      But they go with the giant bra!

  • cocohall

    At first glade I loved this and then the more I looked, the more it all fell apart. She really can sell nearly anything. She has her father’s innate confidence and style. But that giant bra and panties are just weird.

  • Stuart Miller

    There are no words to describe the horror that is this get-up. Does she not have a mirror??

  • this post should be titled, “Zoe Kravitz and her underwear attend the 2015 In Style awards.”

  • lisaepc

    I just dont understand the point of it all

  • Shawn EH

    I can’t believe she’s wearing it exactly as on the runway, by which I mean wtf Calvin Klein?

  • MaggieMae

    That is NOT Calvin Klein. Weep.

  • Lurker

    I’ll just look at her face. The rest…a trend trash heap.

  • maxxman

    Do not like the outfit but surprised to see the Tris birds on her shoulder.

  • Truthiness2U

    Of course. She’s beautiful of course…but she wears terrible, unflattering (which is hard to do) clothing, that all sticks in her narrow hispter aesthetic. Which is in this case is a dress I am dismayed to see comes from Calvin Klein. It doesn’t even look well made


  • quiltrx

    I don’t like her tendency to wear things that look saggy. She has a great figure and I wish she’d wear things that flatter instead of obliterate it.

  • ktr33

    i think she is just such an irreversibly cool girl that she looks cool no matter what she wears. She could show up in head-to-toe Ann Taylor LOFT and still be cool.

  • farrahbearah

    Oh come on she looks amazing.
