Stana Katic In Donna Karan – ‘CBGB’ New York Premiere

Stana Katic In Donna Karan - 'CBGB' New York Premiere

Stana Katic attended the premiere of ‘CBGB: The Movie’ during the CBGB Music & Film Festival 2013 held at Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Castle’ actress, who rarely dares to bare, has had a change of heart recently. She was leggy at the LA screening and busty at the ‘Elysium’ premiere.

On this occasion she bared her abs wearing a Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2013 black ensemble featuring a bustier top and high-waisted A-line skirt with an organza insert and hemline.

With her hair styled into retro, the look has a screen siren vibe, banishing any calls of this look being tacky.

My only wish is that the flick in her hair could’ve been achieved without the bobby pins being so visible.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lips completed her look.

You may remember that Holland Roden wore a similar look, but as a dress.

    Tacky. She would have been better off with the runway styling, which I quite like. FYI, the heat wave is over on the US east coast, so a swim top makes even less sense.

      Not my favorite style but tacky is a bit harsh.

      Totally agree. I love the skirt but the top is tacky.

    She is trying too hard in this getup.

    I agree, looks kinda tacky. Like she forgot to put on her blouse that day. I like everything else, but she needs to put on a shirt.

    She’s forgotten half her wardrobe there. Looks nice enough in the lookbook though.

    I don’t like this at all.

      Me neither. Something or everything is off with this look.

    Bad. Hate the hair here.

    Love the skirt, it’s adorable, ‘try-hard’ from the waist up.

    Holland was much more successful in the dress version. I love the skirt but the top doesn’t work for me.

    Ugh! I love the lookbook version. Why did she do this?! I don’t necessarily find this tacky, but I do find it very tryhard and just plain unattractive. That hair is just beyond. I thought it was bad from far away, and then I saw it up close. Oh. Dear. God.

    i like Stana, i think she is quite unique -not your typical hollywood actress type. unfortunately, its semms like she hasn’t found her “voice” on the red carpet yet, she always looks like she is trying too hard. the hair is awfull, and the dress version Holland wore is much prettier and would have fitted her better. seems like it’s time to change the stylist.

    There are hits and there are misses. And then there are…misses.

    Now that I see another person wearing the look with a MUCH better top (& better hair too), I feel like she and Stana should be in an US Weekly “Who Wore It Best?” article? And, sadly, Stana would lose. Such a shame. If her stylist dresses all her clients this poorly, I’m guessing Stana is the only one. Who else would hire them? lol

    Like some already said there are hits and there are misses. I don’t think we can say her stylist is awful just because of this look in particular. If you take a look in all her looks from the past months you’ll see she was flawless in all of them but this one.
    The skirt is nice, but it looks a bit hard to match with anything. :/ Def not my fave Stana look.
