Emmy Rossum In Ralph Lauren – ‘Shameless’ Panel: Comic-Con 2012

Emmy Rossum participated in a discussion at the ‘Shameless’ panel during Comic-Con 2012 on Saturday, which was held in San Diego, California.

The actress gave a new meaning to the power suit with her baby blue shorts ensemble — complete with a matching tie — from Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2012 collection.

While I think the suit looks adorable on Rossum and complements her sweet, comedy-driven character, her hair, which is pulled back rather severely, makes the look a little too board room ready for an event like Comic-Con.

Her shoes work well with the suit — they don’t take away from the statement made by the clothing and add height so that her legs aren’t lost in the boxy cut of the shorts.

Had she worn her hair down and vamped up her jewelry choice a little, I think Rossum’s look would have gone from appearing to be straight off the runway to something that she had put her own stamp of personal style on.

Do you think Rossum could have done something to improve this look? Or do you think she got it right the first time around?

    I think this looks kind of costume-y. I don’t like it :/

      I think she was trying to straddle the line between costume and fashion, but didn’t quite make it work.

      It IS comic con afterall, which was founded on fanboys of comics and anime, i.e. japanese schoolgirl uniforms with short skirts. Had she taken it a step further and put a colored wig on, she would have fit right in with the cosplay kids.

      I agree with FC about the hair, would have looked great down. So far I think Karen Gillan did it best as far as looking fun for comic con and looking fashionable.

    The suit doesnt go with Emmy’s personality! Dont like it.

    I agree that a different hairstyle would have been preferred.
    I also think the look would have improved/look less costumey without the tie.

    Good news are that the blazer looks stunning on her. The fit is perfect.

      I agree 100%.

    For me-Emmy rarely goes wrong in her dress choices
    I think the suit is a playful take on menswear and she didn’t need to add anything else to this ensemble-including her shoes. Very chic and simple, but sweet and event appropriate and not too dressy.

    I agree with FC 100%. If she had worn her hair down in soft tousled curls, this could have been a cute look. She might also loosen the tie just a bit.
    As it is, she looks like the uptight manager of a candy factory.

    I don’t like this at all, it feels like she’s heading to a costume party. And I usually love Emmy on the red carpet.

    The shorts makes her seem really wide imo.

    This could have been cute without the shorts and tie. Maybe with skinny jeans and an unbuttoned shirt.

    I don’t like this at all.

    this isn’t very good- she looks like she’s doing fancy dress; not casual at all- who’d have thought this was comic con?

  11. firien July 16, 2012 at 21:21 #

    No. Too manly for Emmy.

  12. Sandy July 17, 2012 at 00:51 #

    I think she looks lovely, very unique and pretty.

    I see the look she was going for but a hairstyle makes a world of a difference. Wearing her hair down would’ve improved this look by a long mile.

    I like her thinking though. Cute.

    She look very fancy, i like the tie. she’s still very feminin
