Amanda Seyfried in purple Lanvin: haphazard biscuit-flasher or cute?


I can’t believe that so many of you like and defend Amanda Seyfried, and thought that her Elle interview was self-deprecating and nice. Oh well, I’m not going to argue with you. But I will say that I will be vindicated. Because if there’s one thing you can bet on, it’s a vapid, name-dropping, famewhore always doing what she loves. Give Amanda time and attention, you’ll soon see it. Anyway, these are photos of Amanda at the premiere of Red Riding Hood last night. Her dress is Lanvin, and I do like it, although I tend to think it’s just a touch too short. It’s not an age thing – she’s young enough to pull off a miniskirt. It’s just a comfort thing – that mini looks uncomfortable from a functional standpoint. What I absolutely hate, though, are the Lanvin shoes:


With this dress, I would have gone with black shoes. Even another color would have been fine – but this nude color “fools” the eye into giving Amanda the appearance of hooves.

I also don’t like her hairstyle that much, but now I’m just nitpicking because of my newfound dislike for this girl.

    “Hasphazard Biscuit Flasher or Cute”’s a brave new world.

    By the way, does anyone know where I can get a pair of those shoes. It’s spring and my lawn needs aerating.

  2. malachais says:

    What I hate the most are those ugly necklaces around her neck, her stilettos are way too big.

  3. normades says:

    Love the shoes, hate the dress and the jewelry.

  4. guesty says:

    Def like her hair better strawberry blonde. This shade washes her out. The dress is ok but & I do love love the shoes.

  5. Tess says:

    Neigh to the entire ensemble, the hair, dress, neckgear, and shoes.

  6. Isabel says:

    The jewelry reminds me of when I was 4 and dug through my Grandma’s jewelry box while playing dressup.

    However, I think the rest of the getup is quite pretty. I really think Amanda is a beautiful girl.

  7. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Shoes are ugly because of the heel & the dress looks like she made it herself. Necklaces look like my aunt’s costume jewelery that I piled on when I was a gypsy for Halloween in 2nd, 3rd, & 4th grade. (I loved being a gypsy! Like a tiny, colorful Stevie Nicks.) I like her lipgloss, though.

  8. Violet says:

    I don’t like AS either but I do like the dress. I don’t think it’s too short but it’s hovering on that line.

  9. Devon says:

    If the dress was a different colour of purple, I think it’d be better. The deep hue looks a little jarring on her since she’s so fair. Put that dress on a brunette and bam! It’d be hot. Agree about the shoes. Black or even a navy would have been better. Also, they look mighty uncomfortable!

  10. Canuck says:

    Hate the dress, although the the colour of it is fab. Love the shoes. The girl either needs a tan on her legs or to wear pantyhose.

    Why do they always look as if the shoes they wear to these things are a size too big?

  11. liz says:

    i think the outfit is great

  12. bagladey says:

    The hair, the dress, the necklace and the shoes – everything sucks.

  13. Raquel says:

    I don’t like the unhemmed sleeves of the dress, but I love the fabric and cut. The shoes are amazing, the jewellery doesn’t go. Amanda’s just adorable but she’s wearing too much makeup!

  14. TXCinderella says:

    The shoes always look too big because they are too high and while standing, the weight of the body forces the toes down into the front of the shoe leaving a gap in the heel area. I’ve seen this in quite a few celeb pics. I do not like the necklaces at all. It looks like she said “Hmmmmm, how many blingy necklaces do I own that I can wear together?”.

  15. lolas says:

    I actually really love those shoes though they’re like a size too big.

  16. aenflex says:

    I never cared for her since Mean Girls. Dear John was awful, IMO. Same with Jennifer’s Body. I don’t see what’s IT-girl about her.

  17. Bubbling says:

    @ Cinderella- you speak the truth!
    Anyhow, that color reminds me too much of Lady Gaga condom suite and think it would match perfectly so even if I would like them, I wouldn’t really, nohow.

  18. Ari says:

    The only thing I do like is her hair and make-up. The rest can go in the garbage.

  19. curmudgeon says:


  20. Roxanne75 says:

    She needs to get a tan. End of story.

  21. hatsumomo says:

    I knew you come to see the light Kaiser, this girl sucks hard. Look back through the blog posts and I bet my comments are stillup about how much I hated her story arc on Big love and she just came out with that stupid movie last year and was everywhere on CB. ugh!

  22. lili says:

    “she needs a tan“ – is not only a dumb comment, but also racist. would you comment on someone “she needs to have her skin bleached“?
    she does have a thick waist and an unfortunate body though….

  23. moi says:

    are you kidding me? those shoes are hot!

  24. lacy says:

    Hideous. All of it. Looking forward to the movie though.

  25. Lene says:

    Clothes and whatever character she may or may have not aside,am I the only one that finds her absolutely beautiful.I think I can stare at her face for hours,and I’m a girl.

  26. I Choose Me says:

    Like the colour of the dress, hate the style. Love the shoes (she should wear ones that fit) but I hate that flesh-toned colour. I think they would be bitching in black.

    No you’re not 25. Haven’t made up my mind about her personality-wise but I can absolutely say that her face fascinates me.

  27. Gwenevere says:

    Lene, I think she’s beautiful too! It amazes me how in Mean Girls she was overshadowed by Lindsay “Crack-child” Lohan.

    Love her makeup here, the purple eyeshadow is really great on her. The dress is kind of boring but her hair and makeup make up for it!

  28. Marie says:

    I find her so homely. Her head is to big for her body and her eyes are to big for her head. Yikes.

  29. Solveig says:

    Nice shoes, but I wonder how a human being can walk on them, just the sight of those heels kills me.
    The dress would be nice, but it isn’t good on her or maybe it’s badly tailored.

  30. whybenice says:

    That dress reminds me of a beer cozy. And that line from “Working Girl,” “Maybe you should rethink your makeup.” And your shoes, your posture (although just staying upright in those stilts is an accomplishment), and whatever achors away chains that were piled on.

  31. padiddle says:

    she’s lost so much weight, her face looks different now. Her legs are so skinny! I remember how cute she was in Mean Girls with a little “baby fat” – still stunning eyes though.
    Outfit looks budget, wouldn’t believe it was Lanvin if it didn’t say so.

  32. LondonLady says:

    Grim. I hope she was paid to wear that abomination to the 1970s

  33. DrM says:

    I realise I’m probably going to get hit with a thousand tomatoes but I have always been of the opinion that AS is a terrible actress since I was forced to sit through Mamma Mia…UGH

  34. Canuck says:

    “she needs a tan” is not racist, her legs are mottled and blotchy (maybe it’s cold out) and a tan or pantyhose would even out the colour. Fish belly white legs with red knees aren’t exactly the be all and end all of fashion do’s.

  35. Azurea says:

    It’s all ghastly. ‘Nuff said.

  36. Roma says:

    Sally Hansen airbrush legs! It evens shit out and you can even get it wet.

    Sometimes it scares me what may be in it, but it works.

  37. Colleen says:

    This is why I’m not looking forward to summer. My legs are as pale as hers and don’t react well to hair removal, though I’d still do it, of course. Aren’t pantyhose super unfashionable now anyway? Sometimes people rag on Kate M for wearing tights in the middle of winter.

  38. Juu says:

    Oh God… everyone’s got pretty feet archs but me. (ballet issues)

    I love her dress. If it wasn’t that short it would look a bit matron, me thinks. I agree that black shoes would look better. I like Amanda just because a friend told me I look like her. And I hope she remains pale, for the sake of us pale people. Enough with all that pale-made-orange people in Hollywood.

  39. Newbie says:

    I hate the whole look, really.

  40. Aurelia says:

    Mandy looks proper hungry.

  41. Crash2GO2 says:

    Yeah, this dress brings out the mottly purple color in her skin right down to the razor burns. I would have done some kind of tanning for this color, because otherwise I think the whole ensemble is gorgeous, including the girl.

  42. Alicia Kelly says:

    I LOVE the dress. But I think she should have gone with silver heals. And I’m not diggin the necklace so much. I think that if the dress were altered so that it had a scoop neck, she wouldn’t need the necklace and the outfit would have looked more put together.

  43. Vicki. says:

    My granny used to have a skirt like that, isn’t recycling wonderful.

  44. lio says:

    Young, beautiful and successful…of, course, you would hate her!

  45. Jazz says:

    If she and Ryan Phillippe aren’t dunzo yet they soon will be because she’s becoming more successful than him. Kinda like, well, like every other girl he’s ever dated.

  46. serena says:

    I like the make up and the hair but the dress is total meh. and the shoes.. oh the shoes.. too big too washed out.

  47. Canuck says:

    @Colleen: Try Azulene oil… nothing like it for razor burn or after-wax care.

  48. poodlemom says:

    And this is why her boyfriend is boning Rihanna.
