Friday’s Fashion Fails: Debra Messing and Jemima Kirke

Oops… even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We’re telling you why Debra Messing and Jemima Kirke’s fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars’ sartorial slip ups!

Debra Messing

Debra Messing

Debra Messing attended the Joyful Heart Foundation Gala in NYC looking like a hot mess in this baggy jumpsuit. Pantsuits are a great trend for summer and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, but poor Debra forgot that they absolutely always must be tailored properly.

The billowing bottom half of her navy ensemble is way too big and is adding unnecessary bulk to her frame. Although this outfit has a belt, it’s so loosely tied that it’s not really showing off her waist or giving her any shape. Not only are the pants way too big, but they’re also far too long. You can’t even see if the Smash star is wearing shoes underneath. She may have gone barefoot for all we know!

The final verdict? This navy number is just so unflattering. When trying the jumpsuit trend, choose one with a tapered leg and a narrow, defined waist for the best results. Props for that sexy plunging neckline, though!

Jemima Kirke

Jemima Kirke

Girls star Jemima Kirke must have gotten mixed up and thought she was heading to film her hit HBO show instead of attending a red carpet charity event in NYC. We know she plays a boho hippie on the show, but there’s no excuse for looking so sloppy on the carpet.

The printed maxi dress itself isn’t awful, but just like Debra’s getup, it’s not properly fitted. And what the actress is really missing is some support up top! Unless you’re small chested or wearing a super tight dress, it’s not appropriate to go out without a bra. Undergarments are your friend, Jemima.

The final verdict? We like her red heels and think a matching red lip would have looked way better than the dark color she chose, which looks kind of gothic. Her hair also looks messy and unkempt. When you’re going to a fancy event, try to look like you care a little, at least. It won’t ruin your indie cred, promise!
