Saoirse Ronan & Greta Gerwig are dressing like soon-to-be Oscar losers

AARP The Magazine's Movies for Grownups Awards

I haven’t subscribed to InStyle in years, so I don’t know if they do those “awards season style story” features like they used to. I always loved those – they would put all of the fashion photos of an actress’s awards-show and promotional appearances all together, and you could analyze what “story” she was telling throughout the awards season with her fashion. I mention this because I feel like Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan’s awards season style story has gone from “wow, we’re the brilliant little film which is getting so much buzz” to “we’re going to lose everything, aren’t we.”

These are some photos of Greta and Saoirse Ronan at the Oscar luncheon and the AARP’s Movies for Grownups Awards over the past few days. Both women looked terrible at both events, let’s be real. We just think Saoirse looks okay because the cut of her dresses are flattering, but really, she’s just phoning it in at this point. At the Oscar luncheon, Saoirse wore Cushnie et Ochs and Greta wore Chanel. What’s with the orange on Saoirse? WHY? And why did Greta do orange – with that gigantic boob bow – at the AARP event?

Anyway, this is just a reminder that Greta and Saoirse are here, they’re around and they’re still promoting Lady Bird, which is still one of the best films of the past year. It does not involve sex with a fish man or an enormously problematic script. It’s just a small, lovely story about a mother and daughter navigating the awkward teenage years. It’s thoughtful and sweet and beautiful. And it’s not going to win any Oscars. And that’s sad.

This is like The Orange of Sadness.

  2. FishBeard says:

    Saoirse is so ethereal looking.

    I love that movie, so the air of we give up makes me sad.

    I also feel like if I woke up in college after a big night feeling like hell with no memories, and my housemates were hooting, “OMG, look what you made last night with our quilts, sleeping bags, curtains, insulation, and duvets while we were all drinking Malibu,” I would see these dresses hanging on my IKEA rack. Hm.

    The orange bow on that dress looks like it could swallow her whole if she’s not careful. It’s massive!!

    Tragic dresses. Awful.

    I love Saoirse’s looks. The white dress with the black strappy sandals screams 90’s Calvin Klein and she pulls it off. I also like the orange dress, it’s a little different but not …. orange bow different.

    I think the film is really mediocre? It’s the typical coming of age story of a special snowflake type. The performances are good but the film is mediocre.

      Solidly mediocre. “It was fine.” is my response when people ask me. I’m a bit stymied by the effusive love over it, to be honest. But to each their own!

      I’ve seen 6 of the nominated Best Pictures and thus far ‘Call Me By Your Name’ is my favourite.

    I saw Greta last night along with Jordan Peele, Del Toro, Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson. She was charming and articulate and seemed very happy to be with that group and nominated for an Oscar. They each were asked what they liked about each other’s movies-Del Toro (who was so great and funny) said that the mother daughter relationship in Ladybird was universal for parent child issues at that age and he could relate it to his own relationship to his father. Anyway it was an amazing evening and Greta looked stunning in a blue silk blouse and wide leg pants.

  9. Jenna says:

    She is glowing. It’s obvious that she loves that dress and she really looks great in it. That is not an orange gown of sadness. It is just right.

    I really don’t get what the fuss is about with Lady Bird. It just doesn’t deserve an Oscar nomination (the fish movie doesn’t either). I watched it and found it really forgettable and boring.

  11. TyrantDestroyed says:

    This movie was not Oscar worthy

    It could be a coincidence but wearing orange this month is to raise awareness for Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention. #orangeforlove
