Admittedly, this is not an apples-to-apples comparison. But Emma Stone wore a very similar white and silver Louis Vuitton shortly after her pact with them was announced, and it was massively underwhelming. And now here is Margot in a similar getup, cut to look like a jacket that has fallen inauspiciously off her shoulders (the Kardashians are all, “Yawn, been there, done that, took the selfie”).
Oh, what the heck, let’s look at them together:
Emma’s appears a bit more dramatically as if her sleeves are chained together, and her elbow eruptions are more intense. I don’t know why Margot’s string had to be a white ribbon, though, and the heavy black fabric underscores this illusion that she’s wearing a giant bummer of a bib. This is not a case of picking a favorite, for me, so much as figuring out which one works less badly. After much lip-chewing, I’m going with… thinking, nibbling, applying Chapstick… Margot’s as the better one. I think? While the two-tone on hers is more in-your-face, I think it also somehow appears more streamlined and less silly. It’s… not an ideal situation either way, though. Emma’s contract could start to feel awfully long.
