The Stars Show Off Their Outerwear at the Sundance Film Festival

Posted on January 23, 2017

Kittens, as much as we love some good coat porn, it’s rare that we get a chance to feature red carpet versions of it, since so few stars wear much outerwear in that particular venue. The one exception every year is Sundance, which offers up so much celebrity coatage that we can actually collect a bunch of them and do a rundown.

Now of course, most celebrities aren’t going to be wearing some sort of crazy avant garde outerwear design. And the setting of Park City in January doesn’t exactly call for Dior. Our point is that most of what we’re looking at her is just good basic outerwear. To wit:


Aubrey Plaza

Sure, it’s a bit schoolteacher, but what? She’s gonna traipse around in Versace? She’s fine, you vultures.


Carey Mulligan

This is a basic coat, styled well. The turtleneck and sweater coordinate perfectly. Her hair looks cute. The boots are the exact right choice, although we’d have rec’d them in brown.



Elizabeth Olsen in Sportmax

Always one to keep things interesting, Elizabeth goes for the “skin condition” coat.

Not content to leave things there, she also unveiled a bit of red carpet cosplay:

Twirl, Miss Stevie! Your tambourine’s on the stool next to you.



Jaime King in Prabal Gurung

This outfit is INSANE.

We think we LOVE it.



Jennifer Beals

Lady, you had us until we got to the fringe. That’s a blanket with sleeves.



Jeremy Renner


We want so badly to crack a million jokes here, because the combo of facial expression, pose, and clothing is somehow hilarious to us, but every single thing we come up with is too mean even for us.

It actually is a nice jacket.


Laura Dern in Max Mara

Scrolldown surprise! We love the boots.



Rooney Mara

Again, we started in with the joke-making, but the more we look at this, the more we love it as a perfect Cool Girl look for cold weather. Where else can you work Film School Student Chic than at Sundance, right?
