In or Out: Jessica Chastain in Elie Saab Couture

Posted on September 07, 2011

We saw these pics of Jessica, who has been coming in for quite a bit of bitchery from us lately, and thought, “Oh, she finally managed it! Let’s give the girl a WERQ.” Then we looked a little closer.

Jessica Chastain in Elie SaabIt seems she’s either wearing dresses and colors that don’t suit her or she’s accessorizing badly, but more often than not, we come away with the impression that she doesn’t use a stylist as much as she should. We think this dress is another example of a color that’s just not quite right for her, but we can’t deny that it’s a very pretty dress. Some pale-skinned redheads look great in a peach color and some just look sickly and washed out. She’s leaning more towards the latter. Also, it’s a little tight across her waist and she could use a better bra.

But honestly, the stuff that made us turn this post into an I/O instead of WERQ (don’t you love all our insider-y terms?) is all happening north of her neck. Look, this isn’t just a borrowed dress; it’s a borrowed couture gown. That thing costs more than your car. It requires perfection in all the styling. Her hair looks messy (No flyaways with couture! EVER!) and her makeup looks like she slept with it on. Sweetie, we’re begging you, hire a sassy gay man to take care of these details for you.

IN! She’s a peaches and cream confection!


OUT! She looks sweaty and messy!


In Minion Opinion news, yesterday’s I/Os shook out as follows:

Selma Blair’s hospital scrubs received an IN because she had a baby, T Lo!

Emma Stone’s “don’tgivafuck” ensemble also got an IN because T Lo were too mean to her.
