    Robbie’s outfit is awful LOL

    It seems like some designers really delight in making beautiful people look like clowns.

    And please don’t tell me the wide-leg style is coming back. I’m not ready for this crap.

    • me says:

      The wide leg has been back for months now ! I’m happy it’s back. Skinny jeans only looked good on a few women. Wider pants/jeans are way easier to pull off, especially ones that are a tad bit above the ankle.

      • Kitten says:

        Skinny jeans and boots with a long(ish) sweater looks good on almost everybody and I will never understand people who say that the wide-leg pant is somehow more flattering.

        Bellbottoms? Fine. They are fitted through the hips and thigh area which makes for a slimming silhouette. But these mega-wide pants look clownish. I mean FFS what more proof do we need than this post right here. Stunning woman who manages to look atrocious and about 25 lbs larger at the same time. Ugh.

      • Darla says:

        I agree, even a pair of leggings and a tunic or long sweater is very flattering. I don’t get it either Kitten.

      • me says:

        @ Kitten

        That look has been so over-done. You have to switch it up a bit sometimes. Hey what’s wrong with looking 25lbs larger than you are? Fashion is not just about making yourself seem slim. Over-sized hoodies are still very much fashionable. They make no one look slim, but who cares? They are great to wear ! Fashion should be fun. It’s good to have a wardrobe that is a mix of everything. We will have to agree to disagree my friend.

        “Wider pants/jeans are way easier to pull off, especially ones that are a tad bit above the ankle.”

        I gotta disagree about the cut above the ankle being flattering. Extending the leg line is the most flattering thing you can do with pants, and a hem that comes down just before the floor is the most lengthening. A wide crop is not flattering on most people. It makes them look wide and stout.

      • sommolierlady says:

        Wide leg pants are passable on taller women but they swallow me up and I look 40 pounds heavier. I’ll take boot cut any day.

        This out fit on her is just fug. That sweater is hideous too.

      • Sonia says:

        lmfao wide leg pants don’t look good on anyone.

      • elo320 says:

        Wide pants above the ankle are the worst, imo.
        I’m a skinny minnie but on the shorter side and all my weight is in my lower body, loose pants do not work on me, they just accentuate how dysproportional my figure is. I used to hide in loose pants as a teen, then skinny jeans came along and I will love them forever.

      • Kitten says:

        Overdone or not, I don’t see leggings and tunic sweaters with boots going away anytime soon precisely because it is an accessible and flattering look on almost any woman. It’s a classic style *shrugs*.

        I guess I just don’t understand the idea of wearing clothes that make me look sloppy or larger in the name of fashion. I’ve always worn things that make me feel confident and good about myself, even if they aren’t trendy.
        I supposed the Lena Dunhams and other fashion-forward peeps would tell me that clothing is less about looking good and more about making a statement but..meh. I guess lucky for me that I’m old enough to feel ZERO need to keep up with fashion trends.

        *turns and sashays away in skinny jeans*

      • minx says:

        I have to wear skinny or slim fitting jeans. I just look huge in anything else.

      • Isabelle says:

        yep…but many women believe they look great on them. Bootcut and wide leg looks better on most women. Yoga pants and leggings are comfortable, falsely represent the butt and think women want to believe they look great.

    • Kiki says:

      Wide leg has been back for while now..

      I’m personally not a fan but it can look decent if styled right. This look is a mess though. No sane persom would wear this. I’m guessing its sponsored.

      • elo320 says:

        Yup, she has a contract with Chanel

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        I have some wide leg slacks, that are part of a suit, that look nice. But I wouldn’t wear wide legged jeans. Also, I think that everyone should stick with an pant/dress that suits their likes over the latest trends. Trends a fads that are meant to fade and please tell me that this monstrosity that MR is wearing fades very quickly from my brain.

    • Erinn says:


      I hate wide legged pants. They look dumb on almost every person I’ve seen in them. Straight leg is a much more flattering style for more people. And I like skinny jeans – though I usually pair them with boots.

      I HATE the swishing of pant legs soooo much.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “It seems like some designers really delight in making beautiful people look like clowns.”

      true, and on the flip side of that…

      it seems like some rich people/celebrities will wear ANYTHING if it has a brand name or high price tag.

      I’ve seen some celebs wear some of the most fug things, but they were LV or Versace or some high end brand. and I’m like, “so what?…still uggo.”

  3. Jag says:

    Those look like what my mom used to wear in the 70’s.

  4. Rose says:

    Is it wrong I actually love this outfit ?

    • Isabelle says:

      The top is worst part of it. If she had worn a tight fitted top, she may have been able to have pulled it off.

  5. Incredulous says:

    Tumblr ad revenue dropped roughly 60% overnight due to self-inflicted stupidity. Expect it to flail about for a bit while it proffers a lot of dumb statements and doesn’t hire the people it needs to.

    • eto says:

      Users were complaining for MONTHS and the staff did nothing. I call it karma.

    • Veronica S. says:

      The problem is trying to profit off the backs of creative fan bases and ignoring that the demographics that drive them are actually adults and not the sweet spot teens. The grown ups have no problem moving out once a site slams them with censorship after exploiting their work to build the user base in the first place.

      (Especially since Tumblr is a majorly art driven hub. You really think TEENS were drawing most of that great art and not talented adults with degrees and experience under their belt??)

  6. courtney says:

    she is pretty but has terrible style most of the time. also- overrated acting wise. the new movie about the queen looks AWFUL.

    • Jegede says:

      Agreed 100%.

      Pretty woman. But I find her style horrendous.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I think it’s a terrible outfit, but she’s a beautiful woman. I’ve actually liked her in pretty much everything I’ve seen her in, she has good screen presence. I, Tonya was excellent.

  7. smee says:

    I love the jeans – it’s the gross logo sweater that is hideous.

    • boredblond says:

      At first I thought it was a denim skirt..and loved it, except for the ridiculous product placement across her chest

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think if the top had been a solid color, the overall silhouette would have appeared as more of an “A” and it would have worked better. I think the wide band at the waist cuts the line too much, and emphasizes the horizontal.

  8. sommolierlady says:

    Re: Marvel green lighting an Asian superheroes story. Nice to see Scarlett Johannsen and Matt Damon getting more work. (Crossing fingers they cast appropriately.)

  9. Suz says:

    Tumblr is already flagging posts that….are not pornographic. Not in any way sexual. It’s a mess over there, I tell you. Byebye Tumblr.

  10. Claire says:

    JNCO jeans come to mind. I remember wearing those with tiny baby tees in the 90’s 😒 Is this happening again?

    • Pinetree13 says:

      This is exactly the horrible trend I saw too lol….ugh and after the chokers and babydoll stuff…must everything 90’s come back? Like sure it was fun but the clothes were awful

  11. LadyLilith says:

    Nothing good ever seems to follow after the words “denim look”

  12. I rarely comment but... says:

    I guess I’m the only one that likes this look. Lol

  13. KidV says:

    I like the jeans, needs a better top, though. And I love the shoes.

    I had a pair of wide-leg jeans in the 70’s. They were much longer though, long enough to cover my platform shoes. I was one groovy teenager. LOL

  14. FCH says:

    I’ve seen pictures of cats getting flagged. I don’t know what their algorithm is but it is terrible…which is pretty typical of Tumblr although they were probably in a rush to roll it out too. After years of users reporting the issues of rampant p0rnbots and child p0rnography on the site Tumblr is only now addressing it since Apple pulled it from the app store. That says a lot about their company ethics I think. And instead of trying to fix those issues they’re just blanket banning pictures of genitalia and “female-presenting nipples”…which isn’t actually going to resolve the bot issues at all.

  15. Tallia says:

    Long live the 90s!

  16. Veronica S. says:

    To clarify, Tumblr didn’t just ban porn – it banned ALL remotely NSFW material, even drawn material. AND female nudity and LGBT+ content is getting flagged as “sensitive” regardless if it’s sexual or not. The problem isn’t porn, it’s that Tumblr replaces Livejournal as the major fandom space after it fell…and what caused the exodus from there was the same censorship crackdown that followed attempts to monetize the creatively driven user base.

    And they’re not even doing it *competently.* Their bots are literally flagging perfectly safe content – like, we’re talking actual posts of historical content. People have less than two weeks to back up their stuff, but they literally have to manually go through every post to find the flagged content because the auto alerts meant to send after flagging aren’t working.

    Most of the people there aren’t actually kids like the websites like to portray Tumble. The average demographics actually skews around 35 years of age. So the ADULTS are the ones taking the hit, especially the artists, and well…they’ll do what they did with LJ and just hop to the next major fan base.

    I’m sad there were no political posts on CB today. I love reading all the hilarious comments and insightful discussions which teach me a lot.

    I love her outfit!
