Alison Brie, Brie Larson and Ellen Pompeo at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

Posted on June 15, 2018

Kittens, let’s check in on (i.e., judge) a smattering of ladies who wore discussable looks to this event.



Alison Brie in Max Mara

Here is where it is revealed that our use of “discussable” encompasses those looks that are deeply questionable. Miss Alison, this is just bad. Maybe it’s us, but a perfect color match of a matte and a satin almost never looks right. That’s not really the main issue here, of course. It’s the clown pants, girl. Worse, it’s the clown pants paired with the bright yellow sandals that really trip our alarms. Basically, no element really goes with any other element in this look.



Brie Larson in Carolina Herrera

Miss Brie got herself into a little hot water by making the very righteous point in her speech that film criticism needs to raise the voices of critics who aren’t white men. “I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.” Absolutely right – and brave, given the current socio-cultural climate.

In other news, her dress is really pretty.


Ellen Pompeo

Miss Ellen is serving up “Judy Bernly, please hold” realness and we can’t say we have too much of a problem with that. This kind of retro look isn’t for everyone but we’re surprised to see it works for her. It doesn’t really feel right for June and we’d suggest it could us a little bit of nip and tuck to fit her better, but the color and style look great. The matchy earrings? Not so much. And a dress with this much volume and fabric needs a real shoe.
