Busy Philipps In Anthropologie & Topshop – 30 Minutes Or Less” LA Premiere

Busy Philipps attended the “30 Minutes or Less” LA Premiere last night in Hollywood.

The ‘Cougar Town’ actress boldly took on mixing prints which isn’t an easy thing to do.

She paired an olive Anthropologie grid printed top with a Topshop leaf print midi skirt

Beachy waves, a yellow necklace, a Madewell tan belt and matching Topshop platform sandals completed the look.

I don’t know which I hate more.

The skirt or her fact that this whole look is not flattering on Busy who does have an amazing figure.

    This is not good. It’s so unflattering and nothing matches.

    ewww what a hideous outfit!! WTF was this chic thinkin?!?!?

    Don’t you think she’s aiming for a kind of DIY version of this Prada look:

    30 minutes or less – how long she took to get ready?!

    Everything goes together very well and I really, really like the overall look UH LOT. The fit, I guess, could be better but it’s not terrible. That may just may be what she’s going for. Besides the so-so fit, it’s a really great outfit. Can’t believe this many people dislike it so much though.

      I know! I love the way the prints work together.

    this would work for me if the shape of the skirt were more fitted, like a pencil skirt. both the top and bottom being loose and flowy makes her look a bit messy.

    the real issue is who paid $110 dollars for the skirt

    It’s obvious that she wanted to take a fashion risk, but it didn’t turn out well. The way the belt is placed on the skirt is a bit awkward and I feel the skirt is sitting too high. But the thing that instantly bugged me was the yellow necklace. So unnecessary.

    • Parvati August 10, 2011 at 00:30 #

      I took another look at the necklace and thought that the yellow necklace isn’t too bad. It’s more the second necklace she’s wearing that makes the yellow one look too much.

    The only thing I really dislike is the belt, which is not sitting on the right place. Other than that, it’s an ok look, though there’s some room for improvement with the hair.

    I actually like this look a lot.

  11. MatteaAM August 9, 2011 at 21:37 #

    She looks…busy. 😀

    • Moxie August 9, 2011 at 21:44 #

      LOL… my thoughts exactly!

  12. GusMex August 9, 2011 at 21:17 #

    if the skirt can have another shape, less volume, and the belt separate the whole look not just the skirt, it could be more flattering, i thing so :s

  13. Rebecca Z August 9, 2011 at 21:10 #

    Just a bad idea all around

  14. maria August 9, 2011 at 21:00 #

    i seem to be in the minority, but i actually like this outfit. In my opinion she manages to pull the two prints of nicely and i like the shoes and belt with it.

    • Georgia August 9, 2011 at 23:18 #

      I agree. I think it’s a cute outfit that a regular woman would wear on the street. Perhaps not red-carpet style, but perfectly cute.

    • jkrau August 10, 2011 at 01:26 #

      Agreed! Maybe it’s also the yellow and black colors behind her complementing the skirt, but I think the geometric print and loose fit of the top works with the abstract print but fitted silhouette of the skirt! And then the necklace, belt, and shoes give it more character as bohemian and fun!

    • june August 10, 2011 at 03:31 #

      i liked it as well! i think the belt maybe should have separated her top from skirt instead of sitting there with nothing to do, but i liked how she coordinated her outfit here

  15. mol August 9, 2011 at 20:57 #

    The fit is the worst offender in this look, fix that and things would improve alot….

    • Jones19 August 9, 2011 at 21:06 #

      Agreed, the fit is killing this look. It’s sad because she’s got a slammin’ body.

    • KateS August 10, 2011 at 02:07 #

      Agreed – a size down in each piece would make a huge difference. The outfit itself isn’t a bad idea, although I’m not sure the yellow necklace is necessary.

  16. Tamia August 9, 2011 at 20:30 #

    this is the most disgusting outfit I’be seen in a long time…she has a lovely face though

  17. dee August 9, 2011 at 20:28 #

    I only like the sandals. Everything else is atrocious.

  18. Shauni212 August 9, 2011 at 20:24 #

    I can see the look that she was trying to go for. I feel that if she would have put a little effort into the hair and make up it would have helped. Also, she should have gotten a size smaller in each piece.
