Who was the best-dressed at the Kenzo event, Lupita or Elizabeth Olsen?


I sort of love that various designers choose not to do their biggest events during the hustle and bustle of a fashion week. I wouldn’t have thought Kenzo would be a big enough name to do a big fashion event separate from New York Fashion Week, but here we are. To be fair, this event was specifically for the launch of Kenzo’s capsule collection with H&M. The event was held at Pier 36 in NYC, and it was very well-attended.

The standout is obviously Lupita Nyong’o, who looked like a total boss in her Kenzo ensemble. She really pulls this off!


Like, remember when we were obsessed with Elizabeth Olsen and whether she was dating or banging Tom Hiddleston? For the record, I do think they were dating/banging on-and-off for the better part of a year. While people are still interested in Olsen, it does feel like she dodged a major PR bullet when the Tiddlebanging took over the gossip world. Olsen looks even better now, right? But not in this pajama ensemble.


Oh, Soko. NO.


I sometimes wonder if I invented Chloe Sevigny in a fever dream. She looks like she’s wearing a costume.

    Lupita looks amazing but the only enseble I would probably be able to wear in the real world would be Elisabeth’s (but separately, the shirt would look lovely on plain black trousers or jeans and the bottom would be fun with a pullover)

  2. Val says:

    The Kenzo x H&M piece are awful. For the first time I won’t be queuing up Nov 3rd.

    • kiki says:

      Finally, someone agrees with. I don’t know whose worse, The Kenzo or Louis Vuitton?

      • Val says:

        Which Louis Vuitton? I don’t recall them doing a collab with H&M…

        @Kaiser – Kenzo is pretty huge in France, and East Asia. Plus it’s LVMH so of course they would bring out the big guns.

      • Sea Dragon says:

        Count me in on strongly disliking almost every single piece in this collection. Lupita’s dress makes her waist five times its actual size. Elizabeth Olsen’s pj’s are the only decent thing I’ve seen but there’s nothing special about them and they’re waaay to casual for a carpet. I don’t get why people are clamoring for these fugly garments.

      • V4Real says:

        All those outfits are crappy. They look hortible.

    • Mila says:

      I feel the same. There is one dress Alba wore, it’s interesting… I will attend cocktail and shopping day before, but doubt i will buy anything… Isabel Marant was the best

  3. ichsi says:

    I actually enjoy Elizabeth’s pajamas a lot. They are silly but she looks great and makes them work. Lupita is a queen, but no one ever doubted that.

  4. CoKatie says:

    Neither. One looks like she’s going to beddy byes in her jammies and the other one like the fabric is exploding all over her.

  5. detritus says:

    I declare no winners in this.It’s all awful.
    Sorry Lupita, you’re brillant and your face is still stunning, but this is only a half step better than Sevigny’s mess of a dress.

    I do not like PJs as formal wear.

    And Soko looks like the goth girls at my highschool. But they had better makeup.

  6. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    It’s all quite horrible.
    Lupita is such a baby-face. She looks like a teen-ager.
    Elizabeth looks pretty.

    That’s all I’ve got.

  7. Nancy says:

    Oh my. Was this a Halloween party or something. None of the outfits do it for me. I do like Elizabeth though……she is everything in acting that her sisters are not….talented.

  8. M says:

    Who IS Lizzie Olsen dating?

  9. Blackcat says:

    They all look horrible.
    Lupita and Chloe look like an explosion of ribbon candy and box of Crayola crayons.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    Lupita and Chloe look like characters out of Disney’s It’s a Small World.

    Why is Elizabeth wearing pajamas?

    • swak says:

      AHHHH – trigger moment! When I took my one granddaughter to Disney World about 3 years ago, we rode It’s a Small World ride so many times that I can’t ever get that song out of my head and really never want to go on the ride again. It’s cute the first time, but after about the 3rd time it’s annoying!

      • Lightpurple says:

        So sorry. I can make my big, burly middle linebacker cousin cry simply by humming it near him.

      • Poisonous Lookalike says:

        My triggered flashback is of being on a float in a parade in my hometown; the theme of the float was “It’s a Small World”, and I was swathed in an awful fabric in a pathetic attempt to represent India. That damn song played on repeat through the whole parade, which in reality was short but seemed like an eternity.

        On topic: not a fan of any of these looks, but Lupita’s print edges out Elizabeth’s jammies.

  11. BonnieJean says:

    Elizabeth is really very pretty & her PJ’s are cute. Never understood all the fuss over Lupita & her outfit this time around is not good.

  12. MrsBPitt says:

    Don’t like any of these outfits….just really awful!

  13. Aoife says:

    Ouch, my eyeballs. Lupita is giving her dress a better shot than it deserves but still… nope.

  14. manta says:

    All of them are terrible. And you left out the only one who somehow pulled it off: Iman.
    If I’m forced to pick a winner that would be her .

  15. OriginallyBlue says:

    I am feeling Elizabeth’s outfit. You could kick off your shoes after the event and go to bed and I am all for that type of fashion.

  16. Ninette says:

    No one is wearing anything nice

  17. lisa says:

    Considering Lupita and Chloe are wearing the same dress only in different colors, I do not get how one is better than the other. I know Lupita is untouchable around here and whatever she does/touches turns to gold, but when a dress is awful, it is awful. All of these dresses are all awful.

    Even if precious Lupita is wearing them.

    If she looks like a ‘boss’ in that wretch of a garment, then she must be the PR manager of an insane asylum.

  18. JenniferJustice says:

    Eeew and yuck to all.

  19. squeezeo'lime says:

    Lupita and Chloe both look horrid. Much too much.

  20. ScotiaGirl says:

    Neither or in fact noone in the pictures.

  21. Adele Dazeem says:

    ‘Fever dream,” Hahahahah laughed out loud at that comment, Kaiser. And quite true too! She’s cornered the market on always looking crazy.

  22. Nev says:

    Chloe IS fashion.

  23. Bxhal says:

    You are my African queen,
    The girl of my dreams,
    You remind of a thing,
    And that is the African beauty…

    Always here for Lupita’s #Queening moments.

  24. Dani says:

    I met Chloe Sevigny at 230 5th night club in the city maybe 6 years ago. It was the night I got engaged. She was sooo sweet and fun and I had no idea who she was until one of the bottle waitresses told me. Her looks work better in person.

  25. serena says:

    Awful all around. Olsen’s ensamble really is a pajama, lol.

  26. IndifferentCat says:

    I got to try these pieces on on Tuesday in London and I wasn’t sure at first, but they really grew on me.

  27. Alix says:

    While the pajamas look super cute and comfy, I think they’re all horribly dressed. (Cannot believe I’m including Lupita in such a group!)

  28. Capepopsie says:

    Olsen looks great, but that’s because she is
    SMILING! Didn’t know she could. I Love Lupita,
    But this isn’t her best look.

    Soko, I have No words. 🙀

  29. Lana 234 says:

    What Lupita wore looks amazing on her but would look ridiculous on Elizabeth Olsen. So I am not really sure we can really compare the looks. They’re so different. They both look great in their respective outfits.
