Yay or Nay: Jennifer Morrison Red Carpet Menswear
As a guilty pleasure fan of the show Once Upon A Time, I'm actually a kind of a closeted Jennifer Morrison fan. I like her cute, unique style and her tough as nails attitude, which is why when I saw her rock a men's suit on the red carpet, I was pretty impressed with her moxie.
I'm usually not a fan of women doing menswear, it always feels a bit like a novelty and too kitschy to me. However, I'm inclined to give a 'Well, played' nod to Ms. Morrison here for this androgynous look. I think it works mostly because she's contrasted her masculine look with very feminine makeup and hair. That crimson pout is gorgeous with her porcelain skin and her milkmaid-esque braid goes surprisingly well with her suit.
There is one thing that seriously bugs me about this look: the cut. It feels way too bulky and casual to me. I would have loved to have seen Jennifer is something a little sleeker and fitted to show off a bit of curve. However, when it comes to fashion, I think everyone should just go for it and have fun with it! Never play it safe! So, for this menswear look, I am going to give Jennifer a pass.

NAY. She should have worn something other than the white shirt and tie, like a corset. Then there is braid... she did not look put together well.
I say yay. She wears it well. I like the style and she works it better than most. If it were more tapered I think it would take away from the "menswear style" and would be too reminiscent of the 80's version minus the big, sharp shoulder pads.
I gotta go with nay! I've never liked this trend plus I feel like it covers up her femininity. A red carpet event deserves a little more pizazz in my opinion.
yay, it looks very sophiscated.
Yay - strong and bold look. Not a fan of the hairstyle though.
Yay! Some women rock the male suit perfectly and she is doing just that here. :)
YAY! She Looks Amazing.....All came together nice!
I am not normally a fan of menswear on women but having said that, I think YAY as she looks fabulous! Love her makeup for this look as well....
Yay; love her, love the show:)
Yay I think she looks cute and I love her hair...
