Kristen Wiig in Marc Jacobs at the ‘Zoolander 2’ premiere: awful or awesome?


Here are more photos from the NYC premiere of Zoolander 2 last night (I covered the pics of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux separately). I’ve often thought that Kristen Wiig tries to channel Jennifer Aniston on the red carpet, but maybe it was because Aniston was actually on the carpet last night, but Wiig pulled out something different and exciting for this premiere. Wiig wore this giant-shouldered Marc Jacobs. Jacobs was a popular choice for this carpet, and I kind of wonder if Wiig got “the best” one, or the most notable one. I was willing to give this one a “it’s not my jam, but she looks okay” pass until I got to the “lip swag” part of the dress. Nope. Way to screw up a perfectly dramatic gown, Marc Jacobs.


I thought Penelope Cruz’s Balmain was a mess in the thumbnails, but once I got a good look at it, I love it. It’s so glamorous and it fits her beautifully.



Gigi Hadid in Marc Jacobs. I’m not feeling this at all. It’s questionable on Gigi, so how would it look on a mere mortal? The answer: terrible. The way this is cut around the bust is really bad.


Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner were there, of course. They’re both in town for NYFW and word is that Kendall will walk in Kanye’s show. Kendall’s dress is cute, but I feel like the skirt needs two more inches of fabric and Kendall needs some jewelry.


I don’t want to get a face full of phone, but Naomi Campbell is a MESS in this Marc Jacobs. I mean, her body looks incredible and she looks less Botoxy than in past years, but the actual dress/ensemble is terrible. It’s like a fancy beach cover-up.


Irina Shayk in Marc Jacobs… I don’t know, you guys. Does she look knocked up to anyone else? I think we’re about to get a Bradley Cooper-Shayk baby.


Hansel and Derek both wore Valentino, of course.

    I liked Kristen dress, it works on her. And Penelope is stunning!

    • Anne tommy says:

      Cruz looks fab, no to everyone else, Kendall Jenner looks like she’s going skating.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Maybe Kristen was riffing off her character, Alexanya Atoz? I am dazzled by the way Kristen transforms herself into the mysterious and somewhat hostile Alexanya, who can’t move her face but has “no Botox, feellers, or sargeries (blink blink blink).” This makes me laugh every time:

  2. Nancy says:

    Kristen looks like she was rehearsing for a guest spot on Dynasty. Penelope looks gorge. Nothing nice to say about Gigi or Naomi’s getups. And finally Kanye’s vapid mother-in-law….no matter how much money you have and makeup artists, surgeries, etc., you look like the blob, an old one at that, who ate, what state was it now she mentioned as having idiots jealous of her? Oklahoma.

    • McLori says:

      I’m just relieved Marc Jacobs didn’t put the lips over the crotch area to be ironic.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      OMG! I came on just to say “Dynasty!” Those shoulder pads better never come back in style. Once was enough for me. Same with the assymetric zipper necks we rocked in the 80’s. Please never again.

      I don’t care for Wiig’s style – ever. I kinda wish she would sway toward the cute geek style like Zoey Deshanel, or Zoey before she got the twee f—ed out of her. Sorry, but Kristen trying to look sexy or sophisticated doesn’t work. And questioning whether or not her dress was hit or miss and then following up with Penolope is simply cruel. If anybody was actually questioning Wiig’s choice, they sure get their answer when they scroll down to see Cruz’s breath-taking amazingness.

  3. Mar says:

    Ew Kendall has awful legs. I like the first 3 looks a lot!

  4. Jenns says:

    I love that Kris Jenner was there, considering that Kristen Wiig does a perfect impression of Kris trying to act like her kid’s sister instead of their mom.

  5. paolanqar says:

    It’s so obvious that Kendall had some work done on her face too. Her lips look plumper and the brow line much higher. She now resembles Vanessa Hudgens!
    She’s still far far away from her creepy sisters though: Kim had another nose job and man,, there is no coming back from that! She looks like a shaved cat!

    • Allie says:

      Thank you! I wish more people would call her out on it. She is no where near her sisters, but she is not natural either.

  6. OrigialTessa says:

    Kristen needs some of that lipstick on her mouth. Needs something popping around her face.

    • Marny says:

      Yeah, that’s what it is! I think the dress looks awesome on her but I couldn’t pinpoint what wasn’t working- she needs lip!

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Why are so many women wearing their hair in that ponytail with fat pieces hanging down by the face? Is that a thing now? It looks sloppy.

  8. Astrid says:

    Penelope for the win!

    • Sarah(too) says:

      I like the dress, but does it look to anyone else like Penelope has had some serious work done around the eyes? I wouldn’t have recognized her just from the pic.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        Yep, either some nip and tuck or her make-up artist really hates her because her eyes look totally wonky. no bueno. 🙁 her body is smashing, though and I like that dress on her.

  9. I Choose Me says:

    Love Penelope’s Cruz dress. Every other outfit is meh to me.

  10. Bejkie says:

    Kristen has a great figure & her dress shows it off nicely. Penelope looks amazing.
    Ugh..Gigi, not here for you. And never here for PMK or Kendall.

  11. lilacflowers says:

    Kristen looks very Mother of the Bride. Naomi looks very Dominatrix Mother of the Bride.

  12. Tallia says:

    Kristen looks like the lost Olsen sister. Meh.

  13. TheOtherMaria says:

    The dress Wigg is wearing is wearing her….

    That’s the sort of dress meant fit a model or someone who excuses confidence.

  14. Rainbow says:

    Penelope has lost weight right? I am not crazy about the dress but its glamorous and she looks amazing.

    Omg Naomi’s body. Perfection. Such a pretty woman.
    Kendall’s dress is too short but she looks great.

    • Ethelreda says:

      Snap! I just asked below if anyone else thought Penelope had lost weight and it seems at least one other person does!

      Penelope has always had a great body, but not Hollywood skinny. But in these photos she definitely seems to have lost weight in her face, and her arms look very slender too.

      • Rainbow says:

        The weight loss is pretty obvious to me. Her body has always been great by she was “curvier”, at least for Hollywood. Now she’s skinny.
        Her legs are tiny too.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Kendall is the only one that loks decent. And jewellery would have ruined the look.

  15. Jaded says:

    BIG win for Hansel & Derek.

    • Pandy says:

      Agree! The rest of the dresses are rather fugly. Kristen’s is a crime, Penelope’s is dull, Kendull needs better legs for a dress that short. The models (Gigi and Irina) are overstyled – too runway looking. Derek and Hansel truly look the best.

  16. Ethelreda says:

    Every one of these people looks bad, other than Penelope, who doesn’t look fantastic but does look like she’s at her film premiere.

    BTW does anyone else think Penelope has lost weight recently? It really shows in her face and her arms.

  17. minx says:

    I just hate the 80s shoulder pad look. Hated it then, hate it now. My shoulders are broad enough.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Me, too. I swam when I was younger and I don’t need shoulder pads. In fact, they make me look like a linebacker, so, no, let’s not bring them back.

  18. benchwarmer says:

    Kristen Wiig looks beautiful, she has such a pretty face. And she’s one of those actresses that is not at all a diva. She can do serious or funny, what a talent.

  19. Sirsnarksalot says:

    I have long suspected that Marc Jacobs’ goal is to make women look as fug as possible. I have never seen a single flattering piece from any of his collections.

  20. mee says:

    i didn’t realize how bad a designer marc jacobs is but now i put him right there with stella mccartney

  21. Lucy says:

    Gigi has officially gone full-on Heidi Klum. Is it wrong of me to expect supermodels to, well, know how to dress? Penelope wins here. I like Kristen’s gown too.

  22. MediaMaven says:

    I’m sure that photo of Kendall and PMK was not approved by the Kartrashian Photoshop Army – there’s Kendall, standing all tall, happy, fresh-faced, and then there’s PMK, all hunched over like her senior citizen Mom.

  23. CornyBlue says:

    Gigi’s dress is so bad. It is like when i used to wrap my bedsheet around myself and hold it together with hairpins.

  24. India says:

    Kristen’s dress is beyond bad. Penelope looks grand.

  25. QQ says:

    Kristen is always doing a weird thing where i feel like she is an Optional Olsen?? But she is much too tall and too pretty to do some of the terrible things she does to herself? Idk, Bless her, I love her and want a stylist that doesn’t hate her for her

    No Words on the rest of the sh*tshow except to say: Is It Wrong I ADORE what Owen is wearing?? cause MY GOD do I LOVE it ( same with Ben, I just appreciate his print a smidge less)

  26. kri says:

    Who in the hell puts teet/lips on a the hip bone? That is some TLC Medical Mystery shit. “My Dress Grew teeth And Sent Me To The ER. hideous. The Balmain looks okay, tho.

  27. nicegirl says:

    Oh my gosh I am cracking up so hard right now, “I don’t want to get a face full of phone” . . .


    Yep, watch out, Idris.

  28. MinnFinn says:

    The screenwriting trio of Stiller, Theroux and a 3rd man were on Charlie Rose last night and it was like a middle school boys’ giggle fest, but not in a very funny way, at least not funny to me.

    Wiig’s dress seems loosely inspired by 1930s Schiaparelli designs and for that reason I think the lip motif works. There are some unique challenges in selecting red carpet clothes for the cast because this film is a parody of high fashion and I think the Jacobs and YSL outfits are good choices.

  29. cd3 says:

    UGH. Does Kristen Wiig share a stylist with January Jones???

  30. Micki says:

    Only Penelope looks good.
    Amal would have ordered Kendall’s dress if it weren’t worn by Kclan member. . .

  31. bondbabe says:

    I’m sure the Kanye Kollection will be models wearing burlap sacks with rope belts and cardboard shoes tied on the models’ feet with twine.

  32. raincoaster says:

    Fingers crossed Hansel makes pajamas a Thing again. So Thirties!

    Zoolander looks hawt in that Pimp From Outerspace outfit, too.

    Wiig’s dress at first glance looks like Maleficent’s prom dress, but the lipstick thing…well, a metaphor involving a pig presents itself, but I’m too classy to finish that thought.

  33. Tredd says:

    Kris JENNER, make your daughter eat. Good LORD.
    Only someone this young still has a pretty face at 85 pounds (hear that, Heidi Klume?)

    * Penelope Cruz is stunning. Prettiest woman in the business. Hands down.
    * Gigi, your stylist (no longer ‘secretly’) wants you dead. Who tells these gorgeous young girls to look 40? Hideous.
