Rachel McAdams finally covers up in Isabel Marant: cute or boring?


We’ve had a lot of posts about Rachel McAdams and her need to hire a new stylist this week. Rachel and Harrison Ford have been on the Morning Glory publicity tour in Europe, otherwise known as Rachel’s fashion show of cheap-looking summer dresses. Part of the problem has been that many of us feel that Rachel should go a shade or two darker with her hair. We also think she should rethink her makeup, especially the lipstick shades and the gold eyeliner. But a large chunk of the problem is, to put it simply, the budget clothes.

Anyway, these photos are of Rachel and Harrison in Paris today for the Morning Glory photo call (not the premiere). Rachel is wearing an Isabel Marant dress – this is the most covered-up she’s been from the waist up all week. It’s the most covered up, total, actually, considering that she’s wearing black tights too. I have to admit, I have a great deal of affection for the patterned-dress and black-tights look – it’s very 1990s. I used to wear stuff like this all of the time. When I was 19. It’s a very “sophomore year at college, hang out at the coffeehouse” look. I’m not hating on it, I’m just saying it’s a bit dated and once again, it’s a bit too “young” of a look for a woman of 32.

I get that Rachel looks younger, and she really is adorable and she’s got a great, petite figure, BUT I would love to see her try some “I’m in my 30s and I’m business classy” looks. I great sheath dress, some pencil skirts and cashmere sweaters. A great pair of boots…and darker hair. This blonde crap isn’t working.

    I like it very much and just about anyone looks younger standing next to Ford.

  2. Lisa says:

    I watched The Time Traveller’s Wife a few weeks ago and I thought she was so beautiful.. you’re so right. THIS BLONDE CRAP IS NOT WORKING.

    and she does have a beautiful figure, there is no reason for this fashion fuckery.

    Cute, but she still looks like she’s going out to lunch at Marie Callendar’s with her godmother. Not very premiere-y.

  4. Natalie says:

    im not liking her hair color…..

  5. KLO says:

    I hate all the colorless sacks she’s wearing. And I hated the red atrocity. And i hate the blonde hair. Couldn’t she just wear something with a nice mellow color and dye her hair back to brunette?

  6. Sumodo1 says:

    Boring, her shoes are too big, and grandpa needs to go back to the home.

  7. Julie says:

    I think she can go blond or brown and the clothes are fine. Geez…..too harsh of a crique in my opinion.

  8. KLO says:

    I’m criticizing her so much because she could look PERFECT if she just changed some little things.

  9. bella says:

    Rachel’s hair color in The Notebook suited her best, I think…could we call it Strawberry Blonde? It was lovely on her. Anything she wears looks great as far as I’m concerned. She’s sweet, youthful – a doll!

  10. MuñekitA says:

    She’s just gorgeous!! With blonde or dark hair =)

    She’s petite , she’s cute, she’s talented, she looks like a very cool person! She’s actually one of the few females actress that i’d really like to have as a friend.
    She really has it all…

    P.S.I’d love to see her back with Noa lol

    forget Rachel, is Harrison wearing yellow socks with dad jeans and loafers? BLECH

    I actually like her as a blonde. A lot. And I thought the brown was “meh”. Though I wouldn’t mind if this blonde was a bit darker. Agreed that the makeup is hideous and the dress and tights combo fairly blah. She does need a new stylist. She is a little off style-wise, I agree. But, at least she isn’t the Jolie, who has the most shiteous style of all time. Rachel’s a little blah, but not offensively bad.

  13. Ron says:

    Yuck. This looks like something from the sale rack at Penneys.

  14. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    She’s my girl crush.. I like her hair dark.

    She’s so cute!!

  15. lrm says:

    well, she IS in paris-she should be in a better dress. No offense to madrid or anything….

  16. Mistral says:

    She looks really nice. Love the hair, makeup (skin is to die for), and outfit.

  17. lucy2 says:

    Kind of cute, but kind of boring. Maybe she just isn’t into all the fashion stuff.

  18. Janet says:

    With dark hair, she looks more sophisticated and with blonde hair, she looks more fresh-faced. I think she looks great as both! It’s weird, I haven’t been a fan of the dresses she’s been wearing lately (except for that gorgeous, red Michael Kors dress) but she’s capable of pulling it off each time.

  19. bagladey says:

    Meh, I’m not liking any of it: Not the hair colour, not the shoes and the dress is so ridiculously boring, plain and non-fabulous that it’s almost a wtf?, and I wonder if I’m totally missing something.

  20. Sara says:

    Love her, even though I think she needs a stylist. She is a wonderful actress and a true beauty!

  21. Cleo says:

    She has a tall woman’s face so I am always surprised by full shots of her.

  22. Wendy says:

    I think she is beautiful! I also think her makeup looks great.

    I think all her outfit needs is a skinny little black belt to help define her waist a little more. It would make it look way cuter.

  23. insidescoop says:

    damnit she is so pretty she could wear a paper sack and look smokin’. urgh!!

  24. Henriette says:

    Like the dress but it would be more elegant/ flattering if it were about knee-length. I like the fact she still spends lots of time in Canada when not working, and takes the subway/ rides her bicycle instead of driving some $150K car… but a friend who knew her in university said she was a HUGE biatch. Go figure.

  25. kelly says:

    She does absolutely nothing for me either way. The very embodiment of pfff blah. I can’t even remember her name!

  26. CeeCee says:

    LOL @ padiddle. Not to mention he is still sporting an earring. Why doesn’t Calista say something to him!

  27. Lindsay says:

    Why keep asking? ALWAYS cute. Love her.

  28. May says:

    Rachel Mcadams is beautiful. Her hair looks good any color and who goes out 24/7 in top of the line designer clothing? Not me! Why should she? Her body makes anything she wears perfect anyways.
