Doutzen Kroes In Stella McCartney – Missoni For Target Collection Launch

Doutzen Kroes attended the private Missoni for Target launch party held in New York City last night.

The model and actress chose to wear a Stella McCartney panelled polka dot dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her sexy, revealing dress is one of the signature pieces from Stella McCartney’s collection.

The stretch dress features sheer sections with small polka dots.

It’s similar, but not the same as Kate Winslet’s Stella McCartney dress.

Doutzen added a nude slip underneath and accessorized with a pair of pointed-toe black velvet pumps.

She wore her hair up in a chic ponytail and completed her look with glowing, flawless makeup.

You have to make a bold decision to wear this look and whilst I don’t condone going commando, I hate the nude slip. It kills the look stone dead for me.

    that nude slip completely ruins this dress.

    • Elaine2 September 9, 2011 at 00:55 #

      totally agree. This look is Two Thumbs DOWN. If you’re gonna go sheer, you’ve got to embrace it appropriately. What she did to this dress is an abomination.

      • mikeijames September 9, 2011 at 08:43 #

        seriously! and if kate winslet can pull it off without a nude slip….doutzen most certainly can.

      • artemis September 9, 2011 at 10:49 #

        Agreed!

    • Emi September 9, 2011 at 09:05 #

      I agree, she could modify the dress making it less revealing, but the slip is horrible.

  2. maria September 8, 2011 at 20:40 #

    i totally agree. either these dresses have to come with an built-in underlay or you have to be brave and go commando. the slip KILLS the look. DOA on arrival

  3. Anna K. September 8, 2011 at 20:42 #

    Absolutely YES about “the nude slip”
    Dear Critic, you read my thoughts.

  4. Elena September 8, 2011 at 20:44 #

    FC, I could agree more. That slip kills the whole dress.

  5. Verena September 8, 2011 at 20:45 #

    Oh noes, I adore Doutzen but the nude slip was a mistake. I’ll admit that wearing that dress takes courage but if you do it, you have to go all the way. I’m highly against anything slutty (Hello WAG whose name I can’t remember! The one from 2 days ago.) but I really don’t think this dress is anywhere near it so what’s the problem?

  6. Jess September 8, 2011 at 20:47 #

    oh dear. it looks so bad

  7. bas September 8, 2011 at 20:49 #

    I totally agree… the nude slip is a huge miss

  8. Mary September 8, 2011 at 21:00 #

    I would even prefer a black slip to this nude one. Meh

  9. Rory September 8, 2011 at 21:00 #

    Is she crazy?? It’s like Renne Zelwegger at the 2009 Golden Globes in Carolina Herrera with the sheer top and white bra underneath – Listen, I don’t blame you for not wanting to go commando and have your vadge or nips cold all not, but don’t wear a see through garment with a conspiscous bra or panty or slip underneath! wear something else if you don’t have the balls! (no pun intended)

  10. Nat39 September 8, 2011 at 21:04 #

    Apart from the hair and make-up, absolutely HATE everything else: the dress itself – ATROCIOUS (hated the other one on Kate too) with all these ridiculouis sheer panels and the abominable polka dot typhus rash all over the body; the not so good shoe choice, and that awful slip is a real MURDERER!!! Very unpleasing to MY eye.

    • CreoleLady September 8, 2011 at 23:55 #

      I guess you didn’t like it, rotflmao. Dag, typhus rash? LOL. I don’t think I’ll ever look at this dress the same way again ;D.

  11. Pati September 8, 2011 at 21:08 #

    Couldn´t agree more. Loooove this dress but the slip is absolutely awful. Period.

  12. Jones19 September 8, 2011 at 21:15 #

    Yep the slip kills it for me too…couldn’t she have had it lined with a nude lining instead? Ugh

  13. andi September 8, 2011 at 21:16 #

    I think it would have looked better if the slip were black and not nude. What do you think?

    • Ylenia Castellano September 8, 2011 at 21:46 #

      Yes, I think black might have actually worked better. Actually making a point out of wearing it. Still, I think if you want to wear this dress, the only 100% acceptable option is to go without.

    • jK September 8, 2011 at 23:22 #

      Maybe a black Corset … Any slips ruin it …

  14. Matt R September 8, 2011 at 21:23 #

    I agree Zarina. The nude slip completely takes this look from daring and sexy, to boring.

    There are ways to make a look like this work, even with so many shear panels (take note Abbey Clancy). Look at Anja Rubik modelling this on the runway (who by the way, I think is gorgeous and I have a major crush on) carries this off with confidence and poise, and if she wore this right off the runway, I’d probably pass out at how beautiful she looks. Kate Winslet even carried off that same elegance when she wore her (considerably less exposed) Stella McCartney dress a few months back.

  15. Tania September 8, 2011 at 21:24 #

    I totally agree it’s all or nothing the nude slip ruins it.

    • noo September 8, 2011 at 21:43 #

  16. Parvati September 8, 2011 at 21:38 #

    I didn’t like at all the Stella McCartney dress on Kate Winslet back then, so when I saw Doutzen Kroes, I immediately thought that I really liked it on her, until I noticed the nude slip underneath. I understand why she wore it, but still, like you said, it ruins the look.

  17. Ylenia Castellano September 8, 2011 at 21:44 #

    Tragic.

  18. Rebecca Z September 8, 2011 at 22:21 #

    How could you look in the mirror and then leave the house like this?

  19. justme September 8, 2011 at 22:50 #

    I think Doutzen is a flawless goddess from Heaven but even I can’t defend this. She could have at least picked some nude panties instead of a full-on slip. Or better yet, go commando.
    The velvet shoes are pretty bad too.

  20. Jackie September 8, 2011 at 23:30 #

    You would think a VS model would be one to pull this off!

    • Fashion Critic September 8, 2011 at 23:42 #

      Right…stik shocked by this

  21. JuliaC September 8, 2011 at 23:39 #

    She looks beautiful save the slip! Honestly would have been amazing without. You don’t even have to go commando! The model is wearing thin black thong and it looks fine!

  22. katchimo September 9, 2011 at 00:28 #

    Yessss absolutely. That nude slip kills the look. She should have either gone without or lengthened the nude slip to the length of the dress. As it is, the slip cheapens the outfit.

  23. TeaAtTwo September 9, 2011 at 00:31 #

    Didn’t VS have any suitable underwear? P.S. she is stunning.

  24. sergioA September 9, 2011 at 01:31 #

    If one of the most beautiful and sexiest women in the world cant have the courage to wear that dress as its supossed to…who can?

    • manja September 9, 2011 at 12:06 #

      good point

  25. Bella September 9, 2011 at 01:41 #

    What are those lines on the model’s hips? Underwear?
    I think Rihanna could possibly pull this off (with no underwear or slip].

  26. roxana September 9, 2011 at 06:55 #

    very, very, very ugly slip!

  27. Erini September 9, 2011 at 07:03 #

    what a shame, she ruined the look!

  28. el September 9, 2011 at 10:02 #

    amazing dress horrible HORRIBLE choice that nude slip… she has quite a body and she really needed to wear tha dress without anything.. at the very least she could chose a black slip…

  29. Zee September 9, 2011 at 14:02 #

    I wonder if she’d looked at the mirror before leaving home… so bad…

  30. Tatiana September 9, 2011 at 17:06 #

    YOU’RE A MODEL! If anyone can pull off this look without wearing a slip underneath it (or is it Spanx? because it sure looks like it :S), it’s you!!!

    If you have the balls to wear this dress, then at least wear it the way it should be, with nothing but very small, thin panties underneath it (like Anja on the runway)

    • Rich September 10, 2011 at 22:53 #

      Was the model who wore it on the runway actually wearing a thong underneath. I am not so sure she was?

  31. Talita September 9, 2011 at 17:15 #

    If she’s not comfortable in the dress she should have chosen something else. The nude slip is ridiculous.
