Style File: Alison Brie in Zimmermann and Orseund Iris

Posted on August 14, 2019

Alison. Miss Brie. Miss Alison Brie. Girl.

We need to have a talk.

This is just … awkward. Taken on its own, the dress is simply too much, from the plunging neckline to the safari belt to the outer pockets to the ruffled hem. The color’s not really all that friendly to her either, although the deep red lip probably isn’t helping matters. In similar fashion, neither of the accessory choices show any real coordination with the dress. It all feels random and ill suited to her. She can do cute/sexy – she’s perfect for it, in fact – but she absolutely never seems to show up in a look that gets those qualities just right for her.

To be fair, this is going to seem like a style masterstroke in a second.

Fucking yikes on toast.

We’re not going to rag on the design too hard. There’s an argument that each of these pieces could be kind of fun and cute paired with something else. But there’s also the fact that the shiny finish and flimsiness of the textile make this look awfully cheap in photographs. Once again, if we had to describe her style issue as succinctly as possible: she’s doing the absolute wrong kind of cute/sexy for her. Also: she’s often in ensembles that simply don’t take a great picture.
