Sundance Fugs or Fabs: Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska


So, right after the New Year — when fresh content was slim — I had a “Where Are You?” post started that was a call out to people we used to see a lot but had disappeared. And I never finished it because our site broke, and by the time it was fixed, new stuff was starting to churn out again and we didn’t need it. But it turns out I was psychic, because a couple of the people I would have mentioned have suddenly popped up, one of them being Mia Wasikowska. It’s like she heard my plaintive call and wanted me to know that she’s still out there, and she still hasn’t sorted out her wardrobe.

    She was so absolutely, positively charming as Alice, but man she can’t pull it together in real life.

    Nic looks great. Im loving her hair.

    Mia is a mess. Not a hot mess. Just a mess.

  3. Jilly

    Mia’s outfit is very Fraulein Maria, particularly the jacket/sweater paired with the Peter Pan collared shirt.

    Isn’t Mia’s “intern” look the EXACT same outfit Anne Hathaway wore in The Devil Wears Prada before she underwent her transformation?

    Mia’s second outfit is exactly like something I wore in high school, and that was in olden times for real.

    Who is this Mia and why is she hanging on NK like that?

      Mia is just another all-around amazing accress (just take a look on IMDB) who is also from the land of Oz. AND they are in a movie together (with a Brit, the very hott Matthew Goode).

    You can say what you like about Jane Eyre, but I think with her overall “look” (I mean the parts that are not optional) she may look 16 for a long time.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Sundance is an actor’s chance to show off their cool, trendy, casual style. Kidman is killing it. Wasikowska is not. And WHAT is up with Mia’s hair?!?!? She is so pretty, those stringy bangs are a travesty.

    I do wish someone named “Mia” wouldn’t look so wan and Mia Farrow like. I wish she would be a bit more aggressive and less Twiggy-like.

    She was a fine Jane Eyre in a crap production.

    I think Mia looks fine, at least in the first couple of pictures. Those pink shoes are hideous.

    Honestly, I shuddered when I saw the last pic of Mia… but mostly because it is so wrong to be at Sundance in a skirt that length. I don’t care how thick your tights are, child. Your legs deserve better. It is butt-cold at Sundance right now. (No, really. That is the local name for this weather.)

    And since you’re clearly going to need to change out of that skirt, why not change the rest of the outfit at the same time?

      Hey, it got all the way up to 28 degrees today. Practically a heat wave. I don’t think I’ve heard the”butt-cold” expression before. I’m more familiar with “bite-@ss cold”; which it truly is.

    • Vandalfan

      “Butt cold” is heard often in my neck of the Idaho woods.

    Nicole looks like she has a baby bump. Mia could be gorgeous and I don’t understand all the dowdiness.

    Nicole looks great here – especially with the loose waves. I feel like she used to wear her hair loose on the regs, but lately it’s been all severe all the time.

    Mia’s wardrobe is awful. She is 100% adorable and deserves better.

    I’d forgotten just how pretty Mia is, and how young she looks. As others have said, she is a very good actress–just one in need of a stylist.

    Dear Nicole,
