IN or OUT: Tina Fey in J. Mendel

Posted on March 06, 2013

We suspect there’s going to be some difficulties for the voting kittens this time around.


Tina Fey attends the premiere of Admission’ in New York City in a J. Mendel black leather fitted top and peplum forest multi metallic tweed pencil skirt paired with Christian Louboutin shoes, a VBH clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

You’re pretty much not allowed on the internet if you don’t love Tina Fey and that well-deserved adulation is going to be tested. She’s wearing a leather top with a peplum and experience tells us that these are elements that many, many kittens respond to quite negatively.

Oh, who are we kidding? She could wear a flaming potato sack and she’d have a good shot at getting voted IN. As for us, we have no issue with peplums. We sometimes have issues with leather tops and their tendency to cause uniboob, which is pretty much happening here. But this isn’t an easy outfit to wear, nor is it safe, or something that Tina would have been likely to choose as recently as a year or two ago. It’s fashion-y, and we can’t help but give her points for that. On the other hand, a below-the-knee tweed pencil skirt is not what one thinks of when one thinks of a movie star at their own premiere. We think the outfit has some edge to it, but it’s also a little heavy and serious-looking.

We don’t know, you guys. We have some issues with it, but we think she should be encouraged to try more interesting outfits, so we’re loath to yell at her.

You do it. But we know you won’t.


Vote Now!


IN! My love for Tina overcomes all, even uniboob and peplums!


OUT! Uniboob. Peplum.


Many Precious Unborn Fawns admitted that, dammit, Nicole Richie’s Stella McCartney dress was NOT horrible. It was still voted OUT.
