Shirley Manson In Louis Vuitton – NYLON Magazine June/July Music Issue Launch Party

For its June/July Music Issue, NYLON magazine features musician Shirley Manson of the legendary band Garbage on the cover.

In honour of the cover style NYLON threw a bash to celebrate at The Roxy Theatre in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The singer wore a Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 dress.

I wouldn’t have thought this cutesy dress was Shirley’s style, but she loaded it up with Gray Gallery jewelry including a vintage Tibetan Hair Stone necklace and Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Renegade’ black cut-out ankle boots which seem more up her rock n’ roll alley.

A braided updo with aqua-blue swallows and brooches as decoration plus an orange-red lip colour completed her look.

I don’t know about you, but this look feels very disconnected. Especially the shoes with the dress. I just don’t get it.

    I feel like the length is weird on her. Other than that I kinda like it. I just love her and garbage!!

    Shoes apart, I LOVE it! Shirley’s got this presence… ♥

    She could have worn this dress with the shoes the model is sporting. But it would have been too cutesy. I dislike the whole look.

    on anyone else i would have hated it, but on shirley im loving it. the shoes add some edginess to it.

    Yep, it’s all over the place, not even sure what I’m looking at, too loaded can’t concentrate.

    Nothing works here.

  8. Yeliz June 1, 2012 at 17:39 #

    I dislike this look from head-to-toe.

    Looks odd on her, she’s too short and the dress too big! Disaster!

      This dress is wearing her — it looks a size to big, and as a short woman, I know what you mean about height for an outfit. I love her, but this look isn’t working.

    i love this from the ankle up!!

    I’ve never thought about S. Manson wearing LV, but I kinda like this look. The shoes are not the best choice, but I love them. The hairstyle is incredible!! She doesn’t look 45 at all.

      Totally agree — apart from the shoes, which are amazing and kinda leave me on the fence, the rest of the look turned out great for me, a kind of prim rock and roll sort of thing.

    I love Shirley! Just saw her and Garbage in concert last Friday. I don’t love the shoes or the necklace, but it’s nice to see her trying to mix things up by venturing into her lighter colors.

  13. Lara June 1, 2012 at 16:05 #

    I just googled her, and cannot believe she is 45! Dislike this look entirely.

  14. Rebecca Z June 1, 2012 at 15:37 #

    Totally that it just doesn’t work. The hair is wrong, the shoes are wrong–or maybe the dress is wrong for her and the rest of it.

    • Rebecca Z June 1, 2012 at 15:38 #

      That should be totally agree

    As if this collection could get any worse…her styling is some of the worst I’ve seen this year!!!
    Regardless, I really wish this collection would go away. I dislike it so much!

  16. nina June 1, 2012 at 15:12 #

    oh noooo!!! this is dress shldnt end up like this. the styling is horrible.

  17. Alina June 1, 2012 at 15:04 #

    With better shoes, this would have worked.

    • Laura D. June 1, 2012 at 15:58 #

      I agree. I love the hair, and think that the necklace even kinda works – but the shoes are just wrong.
