Somebody has got to have a conversation with this girl about proportions.
And possibly also about joy.
Oh sweet jesus.
Methinks she’s spent too much time on The Sartorialist’s website. C’est terrible.
I think she actually looks like she could not give a fuck. Which is nice considering the event. Who cares about the clothes?
Wow. I’d be sad too, if I were dressed like a boy from 1975 whose clothes had gotten shrunk by mistake in the wash.
And maybe some make up and a hair brush.
Oh, come on, Zosia, not this again!
I don’t care if she does or doesn’t wear makeup, but I DO care that she looks so miserable and her hair is dragging down. Cutting it at about shoulder-length and smiling a bit would do wonders. And now I sound like my mother.
Your mother was right.
Cleaning up those brows wouldn’t go amiss either…
It looks to me like she’s growing out a pretty aggressive case of Sperm Brow. There’s no real shortcut for that, you have to just let them come in before re-shaping anew.
But it would not kill her to slap a little concealer on the short new hairs in the meantime.
Aren’t folks like her usually the subject of an episode of “What Not to Wear?”
Yes please! She really is very pretty, but is in desperate need of a “get a grip” friend. And Stacey is the BEST “get a grip” friend.
Plus then we get to watch the transformation:)
And this “shirt” is also eating her neck.
WHO IS THIS!?! Seriously, I have no clue.
She’s on that “Girls” show on HBO. I believe she is David Mamet’s daughter. So she comes by her artistic pretensions honestly.
‘Pretensions’ is the word, all right. I can do without this self-conscious “I’m so serious about my craft that I have no time for frivolous dressing up” posturing.
She puts me in mind of the sort of girls who say things like, “ooooh, you wear a lot of make up, I would never put all that muck on my face” or “you wear high heels a lot, don’t you? I couldn’t because I’m running around all the time. Busy, busy, busy!”
Ergo, I could easily take against Zosia.
Helen, I was just going to post this exact comment, only you said it much better. I’ve known people like Zosia before, and they are just.so.aggravating. The whole making it a point of pride to look like a schlump just to show how allegedly superior you are . . . I really don’t get it (especially if you’re an actress, which, let’s face it, no matter how good you are, is not rocket science). I’m not saying you have to look like a Barbie doll all the time, but deliberately looking like this and feeling superior because of it is just as bad as looking down on people for not looking super-chic and groomed 24/7.
Yes. This. That show drives me up the wall. I hate that it’s just called “Girls” because that’s an affront to anyone lacking a Y chromosome. I feel like it should be called “Stupid Girls” or “Spoiled Girls” or “Girls with Too Much Time on Their Hands.” I love HBO shows but just found nothing funny about it.
I feel suddenly less alone in the world, knowing there are other people out there who can’t stand “Girls.” Given the tongue-bathing it receives on a continual basis from almost every magazine, newspaper review, other celebrities, cultural critics, etc., I’d almost had myself convinced there was something wrong with *me* for not liking it or relating to it.
Agreed. This show is dreadful. Lena Dunham is not talented or interesting, and yet writers and critics seem to have a ridiculous amount of love for her. I don’t get it. Somehow they made fetch happen.
Totally agree. I tried watching Girls. And I really, really, tried to like it. But I just don’t think it is that great. It’s hipsterness is overbearing.
>>Somehow they made fetch happen.<<
Haha! That is the perfect description. And it's every bit as annoying and tiresome as we all knew it would have been had Gretchen succeeded in the first place.
Maybe someone could give her a well lighted full length mirror for Christmas? It is hard to believed she sees her whole self, before leaving the house.
Aren’t there far more interesting people to photograph and feature?
This woman intrigues me! Is this performance art?
Her shirt… It gives me warm fuzzies. Because that’s the print of the linoleum in my parents’ kitchen circa 1986. And it was dated THEN.
1) Clean, 2) covered, and 3) clearly doesn’t give a . Works for me. I look forward to her future efforts!
Huh – doesn’t give a “<bleep />”.
You’re never fully dressed without a smile! (or at least look sort of less than very bored and unhappy).
She looks like she’s sick with the flu, but dragged herself out of bed to come to the event anyway. I feel sad for her.
Exactly. I don’t care if she wears makeup or not, but she looks miserable. Buck up, kid, or go home until you feel better.
What are you talking about?
She’s just the living embodiment of one of her father’s plays.
That shirt needs holy water a fire and a great deal of salt. The pants aren’t much better. That said, I would like to reiterate everyone else’s comments – a smile or some semblance of life would go a very, very, very long way here.
I cherish your user name.
If she doesn’t care for a lot of make up or hairstyling, I can respect her choice, but with so little effort, she could look so much better, and that’s the point, isn’t it?
Just swap out that hot mess for a decent shirt (even menswear style) or knit top pulli or something in a reasonable color, and we’re good to go.
PS It occurs to me to wonder, given the picture of Chelsea Handler the other day, is wearing men’s shoes without socks a THING???
Kids these days, honestly.
Somehow she looks elderly.
I like it. The hair is super blah and I pretty much hate it, but the outfit is bomb on her. This isn’t my personal style at all, but I really think the short, narrow pant with oxfords is great and the top and moto are interesting. The only adjustment I’d like to make is to shrink the jacket a tiny bit more, and then it would be perfect. With different hair, damn it.
Who is this person??
She is the brunette, awkwardly dressed, sadder looking (if possible) version of Charlene of Monaco. She makes me want to go hug my kids to feel better.
Come on, girl. You are a talented, successful woman who’s job (partly) is to get dressed (up?) and go out to be photographed, and, THIS is the best you can do? Performance art or I-just-don’t-give-a-rat’s-heiny! Only she knows.
Looks like she lost her crack spirit guide
I don’t like the neckline of the shirt, and I agree that a less… aggressively sullen expression would be nice, and possibly a hair cut (I think she could really rock Daria Werbowy’s recent hacky chop), but I love everything else about this, including the cheeky cropped pants. Great colour mixing, a lovely androgynous hipster boy vibe — this outfit is hot.
Just ugh. Double ugh.
I think she’s messing with us. She’s Shoshanna! I think she has a sense of humour. You couldn’t do the lost pants scene so beautifully and recklessly without a sense of humour.
Is she sad because the flood is coming? Because her neck is being eaten? Both are understandable.
Lady, SMILE! It’s not that hard. They have medicine and alcohol to at least help you fake it. But honestly, you’re David Mamet’s daughter and you have a hit TV show. I’d like to think you have reasons to smile.
A little bit of makeup helps in a pic. And leaving her brows full is fine, but at least fill in the thin spots.
She’s a bummer to look at. Like her jacket in the right context, though.
Does she think she is doing us a favor just be showing up ?
I see a Modigliani with no neck.
This is nothing but sad clown.
Aw poor girl – she might have been befevered?! Anyway glad to see others here hate ‘Girls’ – awful, unfunny and not a lkeable character in the ensemble. Hopefully the fad will be a short one and this lady can go back to her basement to listen to beatnik poetry or some such.
Another hipster trying so hard to look like she doesn’t care. These are the same “girls” that brought us the shirt as a dress look. Fail.
She, and Mara, and KStew. So very very Important and Artistic that they can’t be Bothered to even Try.
