Leelee Sobieski In Jil Sander – 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party

Leelee Sobieski opted for a clean, pure white look whilst attending the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party in New York City, which was held at the State Supreme Courthouse last night and also attended by Dakota Fanning.

Wearing a Jil Sander Spring 2012 dress, she is a picture of elegance.

Her simple v-neck dress, which could be considered as a minimalist wedding gown, was styled with the same slicked-back hairdo presented on the runway.

The only difference between the runway and Leelee’s look is that the actress opted for a deep pink lip colour to complete her look.

    She’s a beautiful woman. Would love to see her in something that does justice to her beauty.

    I love it! Like a slightly more accessible and smiling Tilda Swinton.

    I love the dress — she has the height and striking features to pull it off — but how much more elegant would the entire look have been if she’s gone for a Grace Kelly ‘do? Or ANY other hairdo than the one she (disastrously) copied from the runway?

    That business shirt is tucked into the wrong skirt. Try a nice black pencil number next time.

    … Wait, it’s a dress? Lies!

  5. Lol April 19, 2012 at 01:53 #

    Hmm, seems like with this look you either love it loathe it. I love it.

    This will make me sound very old, but ages agao there was a fastfood ad campaign using mature russian workwomen on a fashion runway all wearing the same grey shift but calling it different styles-DAYVEAR and EVENINGVEAR. It was a big joke at the time, and this dress looks like it would have closed the show as BRIDALVEAR. The model’s stern face matches the russian women’s faces, too.

    Love her style and this dress, but not her hair. It did make her look like someone working in either healthcare or food catering. Every hair would look this way in a hair net. She borrowed the runway look too literally.

    Normally, I like Sobieski’s style, but this is a little too dull. I also wonder she’s thinned out so much. Her face is taking on a kind of gauntness, which combined with this minimalist dress, looks like a she’s vying for a role in a stark Dutch dogme film.

  9. Aline April 18, 2012 at 19:48 #

    She looks like Rooney Mara’s twin blonde sister. Meaning I absolutely hate it.

  10. Jill April 18, 2012 at 19:18 #

    good heavens, what is UP with that dress?? plain old-style short-sleeve button-up plus a skirt that reminds me of no other than a hospital sheet – seriously?

  11. Yeliz April 18, 2012 at 16:16 #

    I really like the dress but I hate how she styled it. Firstly her make-up isn’t working. I agree with Riley that orange eyeshadow is unnecessary in general. And secondly I hate her hair. It emphasizes her ears very much.

  12. shap_half April 18, 2012 at 16:05 #

    I think she looks great. Would a thin belt have helped? Probably, but I love everything about it anyway.

  13. Ritika April 18, 2012 at 15:24 #

    What a lovely gown. Could have served as a perfect backdrop to one statement accessory.

    And yes! what is with the eye make up?

  14. robbie April 18, 2012 at 15:13 #

    i really wish she had done something a little more with her hair. the dress looks nice on her but the hair ruins it, even on the runway.

  15. Christine April 18, 2012 at 15:05 #

    I kinda love it but then its coming across nursey.

  16. Carolina Roq April 18, 2012 at 14:36 #

    The make up is scaring me…

  17. D April 18, 2012 at 13:57 #

    great dress but make up hair is bad and something is missing

  18. Lee Ann April 18, 2012 at 13:04 #

    I so wanted January Jones or Charlise Theron to wear this as she doesn’t have the fashion chops to turn this into a wow -she looks like a nurse. I can’t wait to see what he does at Dior.

  19. ash April 18, 2012 at 12:45 #

    Oh my god, that look is like the evening version of Louise Fletcher as Nurse Ratched. I think the look would`ve been better if she just had her hair in a clean bun.. and maybe a pop of colour..

  20. Cathy April 18, 2012 at 12:41 #

    she needs a mascara

  21. Jess2 April 18, 2012 at 12:39 #

    Love the dress and the full length picture is lovely but I don’t like the makeup. Accessories would have been great but I do like and appreciate the minimalist look.

  22. EmmaWoodhouse April 18, 2012 at 12:31 #

    The hair is a little OTT, as is the eyeshadow. But I can overlook it because that dress is STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  23. Mick April 18, 2012 at 12:08 #

    The dress is stunning on the runway, but does not work on Leelee, IMO. Also, hair (such a bad day for hair, with this and Dakota’s nonsense!) and makeup are dreadful.

  24. Anna April 18, 2012 at 11:54 #

    Something’s missing. Not sure what, though.

  25. Ramsay April 18, 2012 at 11:48 #

    Among all the glitz, the mermaid gowns, and the formfitting clearly uncomfortable ones this is refreshing and elegant – my BDOTW

    I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!

  28. Lalitha April 18, 2012 at 11:32 #

    Not loving this. At all.

    • Tiffany Nicole April 18, 2012 at 21:35 #

      +1 – don’t get it. don’t want to.

        lol 😉

  29. Sally April 18, 2012 at 10:53 #

    Absolute perfection! BDOTW!

  30. Juliana April 18, 2012 at 10:42 #

    While the dress is beautiful, I neither like her hair nor her make up (which, to me, makes her look sick).

      • Riley April 18, 2012 at 15:38 #

        I agree. The orange eyeshadow makes her eyes look like she has a rash. Orange eyeshadow rarely works and is unnecessary.

        If people don’t like this gown, then they probably just don’t like minimalism.

    • gurlygurl April 19, 2012 at 02:24 #

      Agreed! What a shame this could have been a beautiful Grace Kelly moment. I think the dress itself is stunning.

  31. Rosalie April 18, 2012 at 10:36 #

    Like the dress but hate her makeup.
    I dont know but the orange eyeshadow makes her look kind of..sickly?

    • Hannah April 18, 2012 at 16:15 #

      I agree. She wears interesting clothe sbut always seems to have awful hair & makeup. I won’t go into the hair because every element is tragic, but the makeup – oh dear. I think what makes the orange bad is how it goes underneath her eyes as well, and that it is just that oen colour, and there is no eyeliner or mascara. She looks like she has conjunctivitis, basically.

      • Emi April 19, 2012 at 10:21 #

        I agree with you. The make up is orrible, orange eyeshadow should be banned.

  32. bm April 18, 2012 at 10:32 #

    She looks like a nurse to me, esp with that hair.
    So, i don’t like it.

    • vicky April 18, 2012 at 11:44 #


    • gabis April 18, 2012 at 12:41 #

      True, but I’m undecided whether she looks like a fancy nurse, a minimalist bride or a chic waitress, either way I don’t like it. The hair is truly awful, the makeup is exaggerated and some gorgeous jewelry is definetely missing.

    • manja April 18, 2012 at 13:50 #

      +2,don’t like it

    • dee April 18, 2012 at 13:53 #

      I agree. Not liking this at all.

    • CTgril April 18, 2012 at 13:57 #


    • MoxieSue April 18, 2012 at 15:40 #

      I agree. The dress looks like a cross between a nurse’s dress and a wedding dress.
