Claire Julien In Balmain – ‘The Bling Ring’ LA Premiere

Claire Julien In Balmain - 'The Bling Ring' LA Premiere

The last time we saw Claire Julien she was wearing a stunning frothy gown, which was in total contrast to the look she gave us on Tuesday evening at the Directors Guild Theater in California for ‘The Bling Ring’ LA premiere hosted by Louis Vuitton and Vanity Fair.

Like her other co-stars Emma Watson and Katie Chang, she also wore a non-Louis Vuitton look, opting instead for a Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 dress.

It’s hard to appreciate this look for two reasons: the déjà vu effect – Olga Kurylenko wore a similar look with more conviction – and the fact that her glossy tresses are competing with the print and high neckline.

The only things piquing my interest here are her metallic-gold Louboutins and gold clutch.

    I think this dress has too much gold for someone with blonde hair- maybe if she had pulled her hair back? looks much better on the model. And the belt is essential otherwise it is terribly boxy looking.

      My thoughts exactly!

    This dress is wrong in every possible way for her body type. It looks awful on her.
    Beautywise she looks nice, her makeup is flawless and her hair is gorgeous. And the accessories are great.

      ITA.

      I agree.

    This dress is made for a mag cover ( Though Olga rocked it).
    However with the hair down, it really screams a NO on a RC.

    This is definitely Deja Vu.

    Olga looked amazing in this dress. Not only is the fit completely out on Claire, but the dress completely wears her. It is a very strong dress and the wearer needs attitude and presence (and some maturity?) to have any hope of carrying it off. A very unfortunate choice for her.

    Just no. Agree with what RC said that her hair is competing with the prints and neckline. Whole look (dress, hair and heels) reminds me of what Paris Hilton will wear.

    Alicat brought up good points too.

    I think she wants to be noticed. She’s beautiful but looks like a caracter of the movie bling ring

    This dress is not flattering her at all. She obviously wanted to stand out. I wish her hair was up.

  9. Yunna June 5, 2013 at 15:05 #

    She does not have the height and figure for this dress.

  10. Nat June 5, 2013 at 15:38 #

    I liked her shoes

    This dress would be great for winter, with black or golden tights. It’s summer, they’re in L.A. so I don’t like it.

    she needs longer legs, her hair up in a slick bun, removal of those gold pumps and bag for black accessories and a karolina kurkova RC presence.

    The loose hair overwhelms the look, def. needed to be pulled back/up neatly, and she certainly doesn’t have what it takes to carry off this bold original dress.

    The dress makes her look like she has the longest torso ever. Keeping the belt would have improved that situation.
    I also agree that her hair should have been up, no question.

    Cute shoes and clutch though.

    This dress does nothing for her. It’s awful, it gives her a weird body shape and the material is an eyesore. Nice shoes though

  16. CD June 5, 2013 at 23:42 #

    I think her hair makes a nice contrast, soft and pretty cf. the woody dress.

  17. Tiger Nueng June 7, 2013 at 08:52 #

    I love this dress and I thinks she look great! BDOTW!

  18. EmmaWoodhouse June 13, 2013 at 13:00 #

    I don’t like these dresses.
