Abbie Cornish’s suspenders & tapered pants: unfortunate or cute?


When I first saw these photos of Abbie Cornish in thumbnail-form, I thought that it was Charlize Theron. From a distance, and when the image is really small, Abbie totally passes for Charlize. Weird, isn’t it? I think they just have very similar face-shapes. Anyway, these are photos of Abbie at last night’s LA premiere of Limitless, that odd-looking film starring Bradley Cooper as a dude who can take a pill and suddenly access new and different parts of his brain. Whatevs.

Anyway, Abbie’s outfit is blowing my mind (my mind is blown by really dumb things). Is she doing some kind of homage to Larry King? What’s with the suspenders? AND the tapered pants? And the sleeveless shirt? All together, she just looks so dated and strange. This also looks like something Kim Kardashian would attempt.

Bradley Cooper was at the premiere too, looking squirrelly. His beloved, Renee Zellweger was not there, though. At least, not in any photos I’m seeing.

    SHe has nice eyes.

    Not that bad, but the top doesn’t work with the pants/suspenders. And I must say, the 80’s are DEFINITELY back! Time to dig out my “Frankie Say No” day-glow t-shirt.

  3. brin says:

    Kinda unfortunate…and unfortunate that the 80’s are coming back. I think I may still have my pink jellies.

  4. Riley says:

    I think Ryan Philipeepee has probably ruined any career she could’ve ever have. Now she is just the girl who Ryan cheated with while married to Reese Witherspoon and then dumped to be with younger, blonder, girls. If he hasn’t completely ruined her career, then this outfit will finish it off.

    Charlize Theron???? Note to author: Never spike coffee before 10:00 A.M.

  6. devilgirl says:

    Suspenders are the devil’s fashion accessory!

    My god, grandpa Cooper!

  7. Hautie says:

    Cameron Diaz wore the same thing on Jimmy Kimmel a week ago.

    And it was unfortunate then too.

  8. Kaye says:

    She has a lovely face, but to me she gives off a vibe that’s more classic than funky. She might need a new stylist.

  9. Ro says:

    I actually don’t mind the outfit. But I kind of agree with Kate–I don’t think her *face* works with the outfit. The hairstyle and makeup just aren’t playing up her features, and I think clothes like that would be better suited to someone with a more striking face.

    great makeup, but the outfit isn’t so great. I hate the pants.

  12. Bailey says:

    um NO!

  13. Anti-icon says:

    Tragically ugly ensemble, but at least she got rid of Ryan Phillipe, that’s a plus. As for Bradley Cooper, there’s something “not right” about that guy. Sorry fans.

  14. lilred says:

    @ Audrey – Time to dig out my “Frankie Say No” day-glow t-shirt.

    I was thinking the same thing except it was my “Fankie says RELAX.Lol.

  15. normades says:

    That outfit could only work on someone really flat and skinny. Girls with boobs should not wear suspenders.

  16. Judy says:

    I had an outfit similar to that once…love the heels…SO SICK of built-up platforms with round toes that do nothing to extend and slenderize the leg and look like something out of the Roaring Twenties. And I hate the new high-waisted palazzo pants…just ICK.

  17. Someone Else says:

    @audrey & lilred —

    I thought of your T-Shirts and had a flashback of George Michael and the sound “Jitterbug” went off in my head.

    I think 47 more grays just popped out of my skull.

  18. Gin says:

    Isn’t she that chick that broke up Reese Witherspoon’s marriage to Ryan Phillippe?

  19. beth says:

    i cant take my eyes off her face long enough to focus on the pants, sorry.

  20. REALIST says:

    NOT-unless you are waiting on tables.

    She and Javi need to get together and go to a tailor to get their pants shortened.

  21. anonymous says:

    She’s so pretty.
    The outfit is not THAT bad, I would choose a dress though

  22. jacquie109 says:

    Everything looks great until the you get to her ankles. I will never understand tapered leg pants… EVER

  23. Becky says:

    Pretty girl in an ugly outfit. Suspenders and tapered pants do not look good on anyone. I hate 80’s fashion! 80’s styles are not flattering. I grew up in the 1980’s and have no desire to ever wear those clothes again. I didn’t like the styles too much even back then and I loathe them now.

  24. Becca says:

    that outfit is HIDEOUS! I’d sooner wear a tarp.

  25. TammyS says:

    Hate the outfit but she is so beautiful, I dont care. I wish she’d wear her hair down for a change. I think it would make her look a lot softer

  26. Javagirl1 says:

    She looks more like ScarJo than Charlize to me..

  27. Isa says:

    I’ve always wanted to rock a pair of suspenders like the ones Carrie wore on Sex and the City. Without the cherry shirt.

  28. cookie says:

    I don’t think I could ever criticize Abbie for anything trivial after seeing Bright Star, her performance reduces me to mush every time I see it. I think she is amazing.

  29. Matt says:

    I like it! She is so pretty and she is growing into her facial features.

    Tapered pants however are what women buy on their way to Canklesville. FUG.
