In or Out: Leelee Sobieski in Azzedine Alaïa

Posted on December 15, 2011

We don’t get to use the phrase, “in Azzedine Alaïa” in our red carpet posts enough, come to think of it. It’s nice to see it when it happens because you can always count on something interesting.

It’s also nice to see starlets dressed like international spies on the red carpet. That’s always fun.

We think that dress is amazingly cute, given how deceptively plain it comes across at first glance. Sure, it comes off a little like a cocktail waitress in The Matrix, but we love the scalloped edges and the puffiness of the skirt. We think it might have been a little more interesting with the neck unzipped a couple of inches, but she’s the kind of gal who can rock a Matrix-y high collar. She likes to take things to a severe level in the styling. That’s not how we would have gone here. An open neckline, some jewelry, more dramatic hair and a kicky pair of shoes would have been our way. Those boots are fierce, but they’re totally wrong for this dress.

IN! Simple, but slightly edgy chic!

OUT! Oh please. Emma Peel could kick her ass with one eyebrow flick.


Yesterday’s votes were as follows: Hillary Swank’s off-season dress was voted IN (by a hair) and Meryl Streep’s enormo-sleeved blouse was voted OUT.
