Chloe Sevigny in her own leather & frilly design: hilarious or just tragic?


Okay, I think these are probably the last of the CFDA photos (although I might talk about my Gerard Butler a little later). Here is our beloved whack-job Chloe Sevigny, wearing some kind of frilly-leather combo ensemble, possibly by Opening Ceremony, which is by Chloe’s own line. If this is what she comes up with as a fashion designer… dear God. I love Chloe just because she’s funny, but this combination just looks… cheap.


Next up: Miranda Kerry in this black cutout dress by Michael Kors. I would like to see the dress without the gold belt/embellishment at the waist. And beyond that, I really dislike cutouts. But Miranda doesn’t look bad here.



What’s good about Liv Tyler’s dress – I love the colors. What’s bad about her dress: it looks like wallpaper from the 1970s. It’s by Proenza Schouler, a label I’m starting to think is severely overrated.


And finally, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Ashley is in blue, I guess. They’re both wearing their label, The Row, but MK’s gold jacket is Chanel. I kind of like the blue, just because it’s not incredibly over-sized and frumpy. She should be applauded for not looking like a little old lady for once.

    hilarious AND tragic.

    she’s a good actress, but she sucks as dressing herself.

    still don’t like her ever since she lowered herself to lick on Gallo…ON CAMERA. (even off-camera, it would be gross since HE’S so gross.)

      Hey! Please refer to my comment below, because I really don’t feel like re-typing it for you. :)

    Cavalcade of fug.

  3. Rita says:

    Chloe’s entire outfit is astonishingly ugly. I’d rather go naked and bare feet than put that on.

    Miranda is such a cute girl. Don’t care for her dress but she can work anything…except Chloe’s disaster.

  4. jacq says:

    Why do the Olsons always do some matchy-matchy accessory (like their purses)? Love the Chanel jacket

  5. John Wayne Lives says:

    In the world of Overrated, those Olsen girls take the cake. CS’s dress would be pretty without those stupid sholder frills, but she’s soo fashion forward, I’m sure I’m just too common to “get” it. And didn’t MKerr just have a baby?! God, she looks amazing, and I like the dress, minus the shoes, bleh. And, personally, I LOVE Liv Tyler’s dress. LOVE. But, I dont think many women could pull it off, without looking clownish. But she can do no wrong to me! I love me some Liv :)

  6. Brittney says:

    How is it possible that THAT woman just gave birth? I’m so jealous of Orlando right now.

  7. Quest says:

    The Olsen twins looks more like the Golden Girls…really dated looks…don’t know why they dress like that for such young ladies.

  8. kazoo says:

    oh i loveeeee ashley’s dress.

    the cutouts in miranda’s dress give her a very boxy look. i don’t really like cutouts either, but they seem to sometimes work on very curvy women (like jlo).

    chloe’s dress is very french maid dominatrix. i like the skirt part, but the rest is too overworked.

  9. endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

    Ach. The Trolsens.

    I don’t understand how their fashion label has not sunk without a trace yet. Ladies, does the idea of these two ‘styling’ you for an important occasion not give you night terrors?

  10. 4Real says:

    Kaiser its like you read my mind!


  11. Delta Juliet says:

    Those Olsen twins look creepier and creepier as they get older. They look like….zombies…..or something. I can’t put my finger on it.

  12. Boo says:

    On the one hand, I am ever so pleased that CS did not get lip injections.

    On the other hand, she needs to rethink the lipstick color and finish, as her mouth just looks like a big, public mistake.

    Miranda Kerr is beautiful…lose the Wonder Woman bracelets, though. And I feel sorry that her kid’s last name is Kerr-Bloom, especially in light of the aforementioned WW bracelets. *POW*

  13. Shay says:

    Her entire head is tragic. It doesn’t matter what Chloe wears.

  14. mia girl says:

    Those two Olsen girls freak me out! And with those two little purses/briefy things it looks like they are ready to go with daddy to “take your child to work day”.

  15. Sarah says:

    Chloe never looks good, IMO. Miranda, ugh I’m so insanely jealous of her. The Olsen twins are actually looking a little bit better. They don’t look as much like the skeletons of 2 bag ladies anymore.

  16. serena says:

    Miranda Kerr is always amazing and beautiful, I don’t know how she does it.

  17. bagladey says:

    HA HA HA HA HA. Every time I see these two I just want to laugh.

  18. WillyNilly says:

    I have to apologize but I LOVE Chloe’s little french maid shoes.

  19. teehee says:

    Personally, i think all labels are overrated. I was just in Paris on the weekend and the Lafayette mall carries designer duds. I would never be able to get over the extreme stabbing sense that tells me, I am being takign completely advantage of and treated like a fool, if they should ever expect me to hand over 1,600 for a purse.
    A$$wipes, is what I say. Now, excuse me while I head over to Payless for new sandals :D

  20. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Chloe wouldn’t even be an attractive man, let alone woman. Her face just makes me so sad, because she really is so homely.

    Miranda Kerr looks fabulous. I hate that woman. LoL I even like the gold belt.

  21. someone says:

    I find that Chloe always looks tragic, she has no fashion sense at all..IMO

  22. StephanieMarie says:

    I guess I stand alone on this one but I loove her outfit actually.
    I think I see what she was going for with that dress….The juxtaposition of hard ( black leather) vs. soft (cotton, white, eyelet skirt)…It’s different and I’ll take different over cookie-cutter anyday.
    I’d much prefer the look if the skirt was just plain without the tiers and eyelets.

    @Willynilly–haha! I totally agree with you on the shoes too! Too cute…Probably best left as the finishing touches on a french-maid halloweeen cosutme though, no? lol

  23. PICOPINK says:

    Ugliest shoes I’ve ever seen!!! The dress is a close second. I don’t know why she likes that orange-red lipstick she always wears..not flattering. It’s like she goes out of her way to ugly up herself.

  24. Amandahugandkiss says:

    Oh my god, I want that Kors.

  25. Ron says:

    The Olsen twins are both carrying purses from their new handbag line for The Row. The bags have not come out yet and are hot already.

    Poor Chloe.

  26. Deven says:

    They all look wretched except the one in black/gold.
    Chloe looks like she found her clothes in a trash heap at the Salvation Army because even they wouldn’t sell them. The contrast between summer skirt rag and leather ridiculous style IS tragic.

  27. Annie_Grey says:

    She needs to stop doing her own makeup.

  28. gg says:

    chloe! You look like a man in a tablecloth, baby! PLEEEEASE lose the red lipstick! And that goes for everybody else in the world with no lips that is addicted to red lipstick. Oy, looks horrible!

  29. Amanda G says:

    I’m sorry, but Cloe is one ugly woman. I kinda dig the shoes though.

  30. J W says:

    Chloe Sevignys’ design looks like a cross of barstools in a biker bar and stole doilies from grandmas house yuk

  31. Blue says:

    The Olsens look dead. They seriously creep me out. I think MKerr looks the best & I dislike cutout dresses.

  32. Chris says:

    From the cradle to the grave what a strange life the Olsens have led.

  33. Me says:

    Don’t the Olsen’s always seem to have that same pose, or is it just me?

  34. kasper says:

    Cut-outs definitely give off that high-class Russian call girl vibe. Chloe looks like a dog’s breakfast.

  35. I Choose Me says:

    Call me crazy but I actually like Chloe’s outfit including the shoes. I like that she keeps it ‘interesting’ and her body looks banging – from the neck down I think she’s hot.

    Kewpie doll Kerr looks good too. Not liking the colours of the outfits on Liv or the Trollsens.

  36. taxi says:

    I think Chloe’s dress is a bad joke! What is it with Her Homeliness that she’s incapable of a smile? Just boring bad all over.

  37. Kip says:

    The only one who looks good is the girl in the black and gold dress.

  38. Mtn Girl says:

    Chloe: WTF and WHY? Kitschy yes, attractive NO!

  39. saintdevil says:

    Is this some “S&M Maid” cosplay stuff?

  40. Adrien says:

    Saoirse Ronan, that is you(Chloe Sevigny) in 20 years.

  41. Mia says:

    Chloe looks neither tragic nor hilarious. She looks fantastic. And anybody who actually knows anything about fashion would know that. Regardless, She’ll get the last laugh when the new line (including this outfit) sells almost entirely out within days of going on pre-sale!

  42. Micki says:

    The only things I liked were Miranda’s shoes and Olsens’ bags. The rest-prety forgetable

  43. futureperfect says:

    Anyone who knows anything about fashion would disagree: she looks perfectly tragic and hilarious. The satin-encased pantyliners on her shoes really round out the fitted handkerchief/eyelet-lined leather sham ensemble. But it’s always amusing when an employee comes on to defend the current subject of ridicule to the death.

  44. Alexa says:

    I actually prefer Chloe’s makeup to Miranda’s.


  45. Charlotte says:

    Totally hate it. But I love the look on Kerr. She looks modern/awesome!
