The On the Road premier happened last Friday, and to say that the red carpet was underwhelming would be…well, generous. Those of us in the office who care about this sort of thing (um, everyone) had high hopes for L.A.-designer-darling Kirsten Dunst and her morose co-star, K-Stew. Unfortunately , what we expected and what we received were two very different beasts. Jezebel called them “the sloppy new bohemians”, and even compared their outfits to those on Wings and Melrose Place. Ouch!
We’re left wondering if perhaps Hollywood’s youth are simply more inclined to be casual and if so, where does it stop? Used to be, movie premieres were big occasions…and call us naive, but we think they still are! Is this what we have to look forward to? Are the elegant gowns of old kaput for the younger set–unless they’re at the Oscars? We hope not! And before you think we’re against a little casual glamour on the carpet–people were wearing fishnets with open-toed shoes…which has never been okay. Ever. See a breakdown by outfit below, plus shop the looks we put together for each actress!
Kristen Stewart has been wearing progressively less clothing to each movie premiere she attends. With her client’s penchant for sheer, we’d have thought her stylist could come up with something more attractive, less wrinkled and with better fitting undergarments. Then again, perhaps not. Either way, we think K-Stew could take it up a notch with a sheer illusion, like our Long Sleeve Lace Body-Con Dress. She’s worn this silhouette before and with the high (albeit messy ponytail) that she’s rocking, it would look incredible. We liked the idea of a contrast shoe, though the red style we’re suggesting here probably comes in her size. The neon heels she’s wearing apparently did not.
After much discussion, many theories, wild speculations and confusion, we can confidently say we have absolutely no idea what is happening in the picture above. We do know that Kirsten is wearing fishnets…sandals…and a large Dynasty-era suit jacket dress. But, why? We don’t know. That being said, Kirsten should toss that dress. Maybe a nice tuxedo dress dress would have been a better choice? Like the one shown here? Pair it with these shoes, and we’ll all feel so much better. Trust us.
A quick Google search told us that Emily Meade is an up-and-coming-starlet who has a very respectable list of credits to her name. What it doesn’t say is that she has been desperately nostalgic for the late ’90s. Because there is simply no other explanation. We’ve always liked women wearing pants on the red carpet–just not high-waisted, tapered-yet-strangely billowing printed ones. A crisp tuxedo-inspired blazer, edgy trousers and killer heels would have sufficed.
What do you think of their outfits? Is Hollywood glamour becoming a thing of the past?
