In or Out: Marisa Tomei in Preen

Posted on August 31, 2011

We’re really not sure what to think of this getup Marisa’s sporting. Walk with us.

Marisa Tomei in PreenWe liked the similar blouse from the same collection that Nina wore two weeks ago on Project Runway. And we mostly like this; especially the bolder aspects of it; that pattern in the top and the bright orange skirt. We really don’t like that the back of the top is orange too. And as much as we like the stiffness and crispness in the skirt, the whole look is a bit bottom-heavy; even on the model. Not a lot of ladies can pull off looking bell-shaped. Also, we admit this is our fashion OCD kicking in, but we really wish a more interesting belt was chosen. Maybe a slightly contrasting metallic or a just a black with an interesting texture. If we were her imaginary stylists, we definitely would have either had the belt loops removed or covered by the belt. She would have to be standing ramrod straight in every single picture for them not to bulge out like that, just because of where they’re placed on her body. Making sure the little details all photograph well is a stylist’s job, after all.

In other news, we’re fine with the shoes, jewelry, makeup and hair, all of which are pretty low-key. It’s the Venice Film Festival and that calls for a certain Italian sort of earthy chic, which Marisa can do in her sleep. A bracelet might have been nice, though.




IN! Che bella!


OUT! Mamma mia!

Charlie Hunnam’s salute to prep schools and lumberjacks is still gathering opinions as we speak. You should make yours known.
