Kristen Wiig in J. Mendel at the “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” Australian Premiere

Posted on November 21, 2013

We feel a little bad criticizing her, because she always comes off so timid in her style choices and we’re afraid we’re going to scare her back to her beige-colored safe zone.



Kristen Wiig attends the premiere of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” in Sydney, Australia in a J. Mendel Soleil and Nuage long sleeve shift dress in pieced lace, jacquard, and cloqué organza with graphic tiered hem paired with Christian Louboutin heels.

The longer you look at it, the more it just becomes … too much. As our eyes scanned down, we couldn’t help blurting out “Stop! You’re ruining it! Too much!”

Darlings, we react so strongly to these things, you see.

If the sleeves were hemmed and fitted a bit better and the types of fabrics be reduced to roughly one-third their current number, this could be kind of cute. As it is, it’s too many elements and textures fighting each other in a dress that is otherwise low-key and low-color. It’s interesting, we’ll give it that.

Hate those shoes. Not that the clodhoppers of the last decade haven’t done the same, but these visually distort the shape of the foot to the point where it’s distracting.
