Who was the biggest try-hard at the Dior show at Paris Fashion Week?


These are photos from the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2014 during Paris Fashion Week. Unfortunately, no Kristen Stewart or Jennifer Lawrence. I’m sad that no big-name celebrity came out for Dior, because this year’s Spring/Summer Paris Fashion Week has been a bit low-brow. I mean, the biggest names in town are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Seriously.

So I’m including photos of all of the wannabe Fashion Girls paying homage to the Dior Gods. Kate Bosworth and her creepster husband Michael Polish were there. So was Olga Kurylenko, Allison Williams and Leelee Sobieski.

So let’s play a game. The game: Who Was the Biggest Try-Hard? It might seem simple enough, but it’s actually pretty hard to judge solely from the photos. You would think that among this group, The Bos would definitely be the biggest try-hard, but I’m actually thinking that she’s not half as bad as some of the other Fashion Girls. For me, the biggest Try-Hards are Allison Williams and Leelee. Allison wants it so badly. That girl is thirsty for anything, for fame, for attention, to be recognized for her style, anything. Leelee is just… odd. Not as thirsty, just kind of bizarre. But Leelee loves the attention too, make no mistake.

    Allison, no contest. The girl was a nobody a year ago and is a somebody only bc she’s the only conventionally attractive female on an acclaimed show which isnt hers. And suddenly Dior Couture? That said…have you seen the actual show? It’s like Raf Simmons is actively f*cking with us. No. Just – no.

    Leelee gets a pass, so it’s between Allison and Kate. I pick Kate cause her husband is trying just as hard.

  3. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Dior needs Galliano!

  4. Nora says:

    Apparently Kate is incapable of doing anything without clinging to her serial killer looking husband. They are the worst.

  5. Lark says:

    Michael Polish and his brother are decent filmmakers (can’t throw shade on the people who made Twin Falls Idaho and Northfork). Meh. Maybe I’m mellowing towards the Bos, because she may be try hard but she’s managed to eke out a steady C- list career in the indies (or as like the four supporting character) and works on a regular basis—compared to all the mocktresses who only pop up once every three years or so in bit parts (cough cough Jessica Alba) and seem just as try hardy but get less of the shade. That said, Kate still looks scary skinny….

    Olga looks gorgeous, and poor Allison trying her hardest to be not the blandest piece of wonder bread in that crowd.

    • Nora says:

      But you can throw shade at a dude who happily participates in and encourages his wife’s quest to fameho around the world.

      At least Alba runs her own successful company.

      • Bodhi says:

        Lets not give Alba too much credit here. She has PLENTY of help with the daily nuts & bolts of running Honest Company.

        I do give her props for realizing that she needed to have a back up plan. She made a smart decision to get involved with those folks

    • Leah says:

      I have to agree with Nora, at least Alba had the wits to start a company as a back up plan. Much smarter when you consider how fickle Hollywood is towards pretty actresses who can’t act. Especially as they get older and no longer fit into the starlet slot. Bosworth might go the way of her former boyfriend Orlando because she is too lightweight. She be better off being a businesswoman like Alba.

    • Chrissy says:

      Kate only works because her husband gives her roles in HIS movies. She gets little else because she can’t act. All she is nowadays is a walking mannequin, just wearing clothes that do not belong to her. Also, her hair really is almost non-existent isn’t it? Maybe she and it would look better is she, you know, ate?

  6. QQ says:

    Kate was going to get my automatic parched and pressed vote (and what happened to their exclusive front row exclusivity??). THEN I saw Allison Williams

  7. Birdie says:

    Kate Bosworth seems harmless to me. I have nothing against her, try-hard of course, but nothing will ever top the K-tramps.

  8. MrsBPitt says:

    I kinda love Kate’s outfit…I don’t know if I could wear it, but it looks great on her….My vote for biggest try-hard (drumroll, please) Lee Lee…she looks like she thinks she is one of the runway models….

    • Tara says:

      I love Kate’s outfit. She truly needs to eat though. And I don’t think I’ve ever said that about anyone before. LOVE LeeLee’s outfit too. I’m not bothered that she seems to think she’s a model because she rocks it. The only outfit I don’t like is the leather pantsuit.

  9. Falula says:

    I know this has been said a billion times, but I miss Kate’s Blue Crush, fit figure. Her feet! Ack!

  10. Mimz says:

    I would say Allison but then I saw her outfit and I love it so it’s hard to hate on her.
    I think Kate and husband were trying WAY too hard really.
    And that Leelee girl lol..

  11. MisJes says:

    Allison Williams. That chick just reeks of desperation.

    Oh another note, I think Kate Bosworth looks awesome here. Very sleek and chic, thumbs up!

  12. Harriet says:

    I’m more interested in seeing which look J-Law is going to be given to look silly in, next.

  13. bns says:

    It looks like it would be physically painful to be Kate Bosworth.

  14. Mia4S says:

    Do Fashion Houses just no longer pay for A-listers (or heck B-listers) to show up anymore? Is that a thing of the past? For Dior this seems like a lowly turnout.

  15. Size Does Matter says:

    If you hadn’t said that was LeeLee, I would have thought she was Dakota Johnson without her 50 Shades hair horror.

  16. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Leelee Sobieski always looks just stunning. I never did like her, but… I don’t know, she found her thing (looking glamourous and being much cooler than all the desperates at these events) and is starting to grow on me.

  17. Sisi says:

    You know what they say: the couple that uses hairproducts together, stays together.

  18. Dinah says:

    Wow. I never realized Polish’s right eye was soooo wall-eyed.
    BTW, Williams, FTW.

  19. Wilma says:

    Kate Bosworth is the only one I recognize from this group. I have no idea who the other ones are. I’ve read posts on here on Allison Williams, but I just can’t pick her out of this line up. So the other three are all try-hards to me with their excessive posing whilst being virtual nobodies.

  20. Maggie says:

    Kate’s legs remind me of Jolie’s. A couple of bony sticks! The dress is cute but it’s doing her legs no favours.

    Off-topic but please help!

    How in the world do I close the top ad that covers the first story of the page? This is driving me crazy – I’ve left the site the last few days not wanting to deal with it.

    Thanks kindly!

    Allison Williams needs fashion help! I like Leelee’s outfit.

    Thanks kindly!

  23. Addie says:

    Lee Lee’s shoes are terrific. I would say Kate Bosworth is the most desperate except that she genuinely seems to love fashion and her style is pretty good (for an extra thin person) LOL

  24. Tania says:

    Olga’s shoes are gorgeous. Is that Leelee Sobieski? Or a different Leelee? What did she do to her face?

  25. taxi says:

    Bosworth just looks ill. Nothing attractive about her anymore.

  26. danielle says:

    Leelee is awesome! Don’t knock her. Kate bosworth was forced into the mocktress roll cause she’s not getting roles, but Allison Williams’ goal is apparently to be a mocktress, so she gets my vote for biggest try hard!

  27. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Olga is so beautiful. Love her.

  28. shellybean says:

    I can’t stand Allison Williams. Something about her just bugs.
    But the biggest try-hard in ALL of fashion week is Kim K. Um, hello, no competition for her for that title!

  29. magpie says:

    Kate actually is a fashion girl so she’s not trying. Allison is so not a fashion girl and outfits like these aren’t going to help. I’ve never seen anything that she’s been in but when I see her on the carpet I always wonder who the big try hard is. So yes, Allison for the win.
