    Hope this is for some photo op and not really a person’s look for the day. To me it just looks messy. Many good ingredients but the final “cake” didn’t turn out well

    Those sleeves…are weird, aren’t they?

    NO COMMENT! Wait! UGLY jacket! Totally ruins- what looks like a beautiful summer dress! The shoes don´t help much either! (Sorry for the negativity!)

    escaped from the asylum?

      what’s wrong with the asylum? Sure, you’re in the right place?

      • rox

        Right, everyone would love to get to the asylum. Well said, keep up the good work!

    Can be seen as authentic, but personally is definitely a no-no. Oversized things are not my cup of tea, but when someone feels it is right who am I to criticise it, right?

    Yeah, alright, David Byrne… Keep the Big Suit at home, deep in the closet where it belongs.

    Is a complete lack of style and a astrong sense of trying-to-hard the new “having style”….?

    It looks like her inner 5-year-old fulfilled her childhood dream of playing dress up her father’s clothes.

    I am SO ready for this LOOK!!!!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!!

    A bit too much oversize….

    Escaped from some mental health unit and stole the suit coat to cover up the hospital gown? Just saying….

      This is the comments that best describe the photo…I totally agree with you!

      Hahaha! That’s exactly it!

      I’m all for originality, but it sometimes seems like the line between original and just plain ridiculous is very very thin.

    I like it. It’s weird.

    Great hair. Something about her reminds me of Francesca Zambello.

      My first thought was, “This is not my beautiful house!”
      I think the jacket could look great with, say, narrow jeans, boots, & a tank. But the volume-on-volume here isn’t really working.

        I agree !

    I love it. I’m always astonished, and envious of the confidence it takes to be bold in ones choice of clothing.

    not sure I’m getting this look! the shirt-dress under looks interesting but the oversized jacket doesn’t do anything for me.

  20. JV

    June 25, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Only David Byrne ever got away with this. This is not good.

  21. Ann-Marie

    Seriously????

  22. Brizz

    June 25, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    First thought: Naah.
    But after looking again, a little longer I discovered that it is great. It looks like a collage. It tickles the mind. I wonder if that works in motion, too.

  23. kappokk

    June 25, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    Like the picture, like the distorted proportions. Makes you think. Byrne.
    Borrowed or conscious. Or both.
    And the “beautiful summer dress”, is it all that beautiful with that uneven hem …

  24. Cait Ni Chaoimh

    June 25, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    Well David Byrne did say “Stop making sense.” I love this look, because when you don’t look like everybody else…

    Oh my goodness no…this is just a shapeless mess.
    You can do oversize and still have a good silhouette happening, but this is just a misguided mess to me.

    hmm.. interesting.

    I like to think that by wearing this jacket, she is laughing at the fashion crowd.

    creepy !!!

  30. Sally on the side

    June 26, 2015 at 3:39 am

    She looks like she is trying to sneak into an R rated movie. Is she sitting on someone else’s shoulders?

  31. Filuzi

    June 26, 2015 at 3:41 am

    The hair and the face are so good she could get away with anything- I might love it if the jacket was not sooo much oversized and if she wore different shoes.

  32. Lillias

    June 26, 2015 at 4:30 am

    Sometimes it takes a few attempts to nail an outfit – I think this was #1: oversized jacket will work next time if paired with tailored garments beneath. However, it is so much to do with confidence – if I see her in motion, confidently striding along street, then it SUCCEEDS!

    A big NO! its very sad seeing her wearing this, as I presume she thinks it looks good! no it does not.

    That jacket ,no, just no!

    I sometimes wish I was as gullible as those folks that like this look? No – maybe not.

    I love how provocative this is. It challenges me.

  39. Xerox

    June 26, 2015 at 11:26 am

    I like it. The details are cool: frayed, buttonless cuffs, no front buttons, lack of breast pocket. She knows what she’s doin’. You’ll all be wearing this by autumn. You watch…

    This is not an oversized jacket–an oversized jacket would still have some relationship to the body underneath. No, this is a plaid tarp. Not so good.

    I love it! The hair, the over oversized jacket, the voluminous dress, the white on white on mid grey.. she really went for it. Crazy cool.

    MEH. at least tailor/roll the sleeves a tad… I do enjoy the oversize jacket look on woman but not this particular jacket. Nothing works here. failure.

    This is definitely a statement outfit, a commentary on the oversized jacket/sneaker trend.

    Quite the hot mess. I giggle at people who rave about it, just because it appeared on a top fashion blog.

    She escaped the set of the new David Lynch movie shooting in Paris, out next year.
    The title of the movie is CRAZY WOMEN WEARING OVERSIZED MEN”S BLAZERS RUNNING ALOOF AROUND PLACE DES VOSGES.
    OMG I love D.Lynch can’t wait till next year!!!

      Sorry David but I think she’s so much better than that. And I’m not even sure her outfit works…

    The jacket is the perfect size.

    But her head and body are way too small…..

    This look is super cool.

  62. floating point

    July 2, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    Hmm, is she cold and has her boyfriend given her his jacket to keep warm?

    Or has she deliberately chosen this outfit?

    At any rate, this look says: “The world is my playground. The city is my living room. I am going to be comfortable and wear what I want.”

    LOVE IT! some craziness or eccentricity keeps the streets and even life more interesting. lovely haircut!

    on a fashion blog it may look cutting edge or avant-garde …but if you saw her on the street you would die lauging.
    Jacket way too oversized. it would get in the way of even basic everyday function. thumbs down
