You Be The Judge: Are Celebrity Jumpsuits Red Carpet Disasters?

As always, there’s a trend that hits Hollywood at which us normal girls look at and think, hmm. Our newest fashion flashback up for questioning: the jumpsuit.

Not since the days of Studio 54 has the jumpsuit caused such a commotion for evening. From Amy Adams (in Louis Vuitton Resort) to Gwyneth Paltrow and Maggie Gyllenhaal (both in Stella McCartney), fashion-forward actresses are donning this easy one-piece red carpet solution for their big nights with the paparazzi. Is it assumed that no one has to use the restroom throughout the night? Because, speaking from experience, the suit has to come off the top to get out of it. If double-sided tape is involved, unless Rachel Zoe is following you around all night, don’t plan on leaving the bathroom looking the same way you entered.

The other issue is fit. These looks can span from tailored and sharp (Paltrow) to slightly unfitted (Gyllenhaal) to downright blousy (Adams).

Want to give the one-piece a try outside the beach?  Give it a shot in a Sea Pleated Front Jumpsuit ($275.80, was $394) or pale pink version by Dessous by Sophie Simmons ($300).

What are your thoughts on the trend?  Are you ready to hop into the jumpsuit or is this a returning trend you’re going to skip?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
