Brie Larson in custom Prada at the Time 100 gala: stunning or blah?

Guest arrivals at the 2019 Time 100 Gala

Time Magazine released their Time 100 list & covers last week. It’s the annual thing, where Time Mag tries to create a listicle of the “most influential people” in the world, and the list is always kind of dumb and America-centric anyway. This year’s Time 100 was particularly stupid and full of shenanigans, but whatever. The list was made and last night, many people on the list came out to celebrate themselves at the Time 100 event at the Lincoln Center in New York.

Let’s start with Brie Larson. I can’t be the only one who has been utterly disappointed by Brie’s fashion and styling choices the past three months, right? She went all over the world to promote Captain Marvel, and then she’s doing it all over again to promote Endgame. And there’s been maybe one or two looks I actually liked, and the rest of it is just tacky satin garbage. She wore this custom Prada gown to the Time 100 gala and… the color is pretty. The dress had potential. But her nothingburger styling is so disappointing. And Prada still doesn’t know how to do darting on a bust.

    Does that dress have POCKETS? I love it!

  2. Mariposa says:

    As soon as I saw those darts on Brie’s dress I thought ‘Prada!!!!’ I like the colour, it really suits her.

    • SM says:

      I agree. The colour is great. And Brie was a disappointment fashion-wise so with the low expectations barr for her, this actually looks quite good.
      On a different note – are those ppl here considered to be the most influential in the world? Are they out of their minds?

      • Mia4s says:

        “are those ppl here considered to be the most influential in the world?“

        Sure….if they attract publicity for Time Warner to sell its issue and hold a sponsored event where people show up in tuxedos and mediocre dresses. Sure they are. 🙄

    • Josephine says:

      I really like the dress. The color is stunning although not one very many people could wear. I appreciate her hair being pulled off her face but I feel like there is a way to do that while still maintaining a bit more elegance. This almost looks like she just stepped out of a pool. Her skin is amazing and the stylist is right to emphasize it, but her hair continues to be problematic. It looked awful down as well.

  3. Becks1 says:

    I really like Brie’s dress, I think the bodice could obviously fit better, but its a nice color and overall suits her. Sandra Oh also looks great. Both women look very much like themselves.

  4. lily says:

    Emilia Clarke looks like she’s wearing Dior! Yikes D&G ain’t shit

  5. y says:

    Emilia is one of the faces of D&G. She’s the spokesmodel for their fragrance line.

  6. Seraphina says:

    Brie’s hair looks harsh. And the Rock looks like he belongs in the 70’s. Naomi looks like the 80’s Golden Dream Barbie.

    Chip and Joanna look good. Not overly done up and they look like they are having fun. Good for them. I have recently started watching their show and like it. I know I’m way behind.

    Joanna Gaines for the win, she looks amazing and I love her dress.
    The Rock looks like a sofa from the 70s. 😉

  9. Leriel says:

    I like Emilia dress, yes it looks like Dior, but this red colour is really pretty and looks good on her.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I like the color, but not the styling or fit of Brie’s.
    The Rock looks awful. I hate everything about that outfit.

    I’m so sick of those Gaines people.

  11. Emily says:

    That is my favourite colour to wear!

  12. SJR says:

    The top of the green dress looks like it doesn’t fit correctly to me. Like the red dress, a big No on The Rocks outfit, Glenn Close looks good, I like the black dress with feathers.

  13. Veronica S. says:

    I like Brie’s dress, though I agree the chest isn’t properly fitted. It may have been better with the hair down, though, or maybe a bigger earring? She’s definitely not a fashion girl, unfortunately, but maybe she can be saved with time.

    Joanna Gaines’ dress is probably the nicest of the bunch, honestly. It’s simple, but it’s a nice navy for her skin tone.

  14. Jessica says:

    She’s lost a LOT of weight.

    • detritus says:

      Yeah, I noticed too. I imagine intense media scrutiny and criticism from the angry anti feminists plus a breakup would be rough.

      I also noticed the super minimal makeup. I think Captain Marvel crystallized Bries feminism and I’m interested to see if the light makeup is in reaction to the movie or is here to stay. I don’t think I’d have the guts, but maybe if I had skin like that?

  15. Kaye says:

    I’ve never seen Chip Gaines on TV, but in his photo he reminds me of a young Robert Redford.

  16. Chloe says:

    I also am loving Brie’s dress!

  17. bear says:

    here for mo salah ❤️⚽️ #ynwa

    • ClaireB says:

      Mo Salah, the Egyptian king!

      I quite like the Rock’s velvet suit, but that turtleneck must go. If it has to be a 70s look, at least he could have chosen a different color.

  18. Other Renee says:

    Maybe if Brie weren’t just standing there looking bored the dress would shine more. Apart from the ill-fitting top it’s a lovely dress.

    I’m here for The Rock’s ‘70s look.

  19. Suz says:

    I adore Brie but the dress is so ill fitting on her. You can tell from the side. It’s like Goop’s pink Oscar dress level ill fitting.

  20. chitowngal says:

    I think Brie’s dress is poorly fitted and drags her chest area down. I like the color and her hair and makeup. Who on earth told The Rock that brown velvet was a good idea? Disregard. Probably the same person who thought the beige turtleneck really ‘pulled the look together’. No. Just, no. As for Emilia’s dress, I love red, so she scores points for that, and it does seem to fit well, but I feel as though the tulle skirt and that top, don’t go together. I also think her hair is too dark. It’s The right of shade of blonde would look great on her. I like Glenn’s pants and shoes, but that jacket looks like it was an attempt to dress them up, rather than being a good piece on its own. Naomi’s dress is shapeless. Sandra’s dress is OK, but not with that hairstyle. They’re mimicking one another. Mohamed looks good. I don’t know if it’s the way she’s standing in the pic, but the cups on Joanna’s dress look off. Chip and Mohamed for the wins.

  21. Caitrin says:

    I don’t like the fit, and there’s way too much fabric, BUT. I looooooooove the color.

  22. BANANIE says:

    I’m beginning to think I’m the only one who thinks that color is absolutely hideous on her and maybe hideous in general. It’s this weird too-yellow green that isn’t flattering on a lot of skin tones. I’d say I wish it were bluer or deeper but then I guess that’d be a different color altogether. Oops!

    Also I think the fabric is not the best.

  23. Clementine says:

    LOVE Brie’s dress, but is she looking a little thin??? I’ve never noticed how tiny she is; I always thought she had more of an athletic build.

    • Rita says:

      Brie is teeny tiny thru the waist.

    • Amanda Wheaton says:

      I had the same thought. She was very normal-looking through her twenties and then got super-thin in recent years. She’s really leaning into the thin look these days!

  24. Xi Tang says:

    I actually love Brie‘s style a lot! It’s way better than her style during her oscar campaign.
    This particular dress needs some fitting at the top but otherwise it’s great.

  25. MuttonChop says:

    Chip’s hairline perfectly matches the neckline shape of Joanna’s dress.
