There are a variety of ways to earn the title of a Hot Mess, darlings. Some outfits are overly trendy, some are unflattering, others are cheap looking and tacky. But then there is a category for styles that are just eye-rollingly lame. Outfits like Bella Thorne’s at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere…
You just knew that someone would show up in a TMNT shirt. I mean of course. But I expected it to be some actor’s four-year-old son, not a teen queen desperately trying to make it to It Girl status.
To be clear, I’d have a problem with a leather mini skirt and cankle-creating booties no matter what BT decided to pair it with. But her “vintage” (aka old and probably worn by other people, aka gross) TMNT tee takes this look to a level of terribleness I didn’t even believe possible.
On one hand, a very small part of me wants to say, “Ah, I see what she’s doing there!” but the larger, fashion-conscious side says, “UGH I see what she’s doing there…” Movie premieres aren’t costume parties–dressing on theme isn’t necessary. Bel’s a cute girl but her questionable style could be keeping her from greatness.
What’s your take on her LOLy look? Do you think it’s cute and kitschy, or are vintage tees better left at Goodwill and off red carpets?
