In or Out: Ellie Kemper in Naeem Khan

Posted on May 04, 2012

It seems the lady stars are tending toward the complicated dresses lately. We just got finished telling January Jones she was wearing the wrong dress for her when this popped up in our view:

Ellie Kemper attends the Naeem Khan Private Dinner at the Chateau Marmont in LA wearing a dress by the designer paired with an Ela M.I.L.C.K. clutch.

And you know how it is. When one star does something, it’s a quirk; when two stars do it, it’s a trend.

We like this on her quite a bit. It’s obviously not lacking in visual interest and the little pops of bling bump up the glam factor.

Oh Jesus Christ. We’ve been doing this too long if we can type something like “the little pops of bling bump up the glam factor” without tongues firmly in cheeks. We’ve become Sassy magazine editors inadvertently.

Anyway, the dress. It’s cute. The pattern gets a little weird around the hips and lady area in a not particularly flattering way, but we like the way this dress combines a certain sort of crudeness with modern sophistication. It’s eye-catching and interesting. And who doesn’t want that if they know their picture’s getting taken?

IN! Glamorous and unique!


OUT! Too distracting. And shouldn’t she put some effort into the hair and makeup?


The Precious Unborn Fawns were quite taken with Scar Jo’s pattern-mixing getup, voting it IN.
