Mireille Enos in J. Mendel

Posted on June 18, 2013

We gotta say, this is pretty much working for us. No, really.


Mireille Enos attends the premiere of ‘World War Z’ in New York City in a J. Mendel copper multi abstract painted jacquard off the shoulder gown paired with a Movado watch, Norman Silverman and Le Vian jewelry, and Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps.

Not a hundred percent, of course, but we think this is the direction her red carpet looks should be going. A neo-hippie-glam vibe really works well with her looks, so bright, wild prints, big jewelry, and free-flowing hair are really, really good ideas for her. She should definitely stay pointed at this area of the style map. This does not mean, however, that we love everything here. Black patent leather pointy-toed pumps with a gown is a thing that makes T Lo’s eyelids twitch in silent fits of existential dread. Also, we like metallic-mixing when it’s done well, but we don’t think that clutch works. And the sleeve length is awkward. And if you’re a nail-biter, it might be a good idea to stick to neutral or light nail colors for formal, picture-taking events.

But despite all that bitchy quibbling, we really think this is the best she’s looked in some time on a red carpet and that this sort of 21stC Juice Newton thing actually works quite well for her.

Go bolder with the jewelry next time, Mireille. You’re the type of gal who can handle ten pounds of precious stones at a time.
