holly hunter was an enduring member of Hollywood’s elite, and it’s all thanks to her acting skills. the saving grace The star’s presence on the red carpet is always stunning, and some might even say her sense of style was ahead of her time. Hunter’s progressive styles predated some of the latest and greatest trends, though she wore an ensemble that could cause controversy if she tried to rock it today.
Holly Hunter’s fashion is ahead of its time
When it comes to red carpet fashion, Holly Hunter knows how to strut her stuff in casual clothes and designer dresses. After more than 40 years in the entertainment industry, Hunter knows a thing or two about putting her best foot forward on the red carpet. Sometimes that foot wears a boot rather than the more common high heel, like on Hunter’s last trip down the iconic catwalk.
Hunter looked cool and laid back while attending the love is love is love premiering November 2021 in Santa Monica, CA. She wore a dark blue blazer with a stand-up collar over a dark gray t-shirt and dark blue jeans. Peeking out from under the hems of her jeans were a pair of black boots that added just a hint of edginess, taking this look from supermarket aisle to red carpet ready.
Almost exactly 20 years ago, Hunter rocked an equally low-key ensemble on the red carpet. She teamed a white v-neck t-shirt with three-quarter sleeves with pale olive colored pants. To top it all off, she wore a pair of open-toed shoes and kept the accessories light. While this look might seem basic, it’s pretty much the go-to style these days, right down to the little tummy that Hunter’s shirt leaves visible.
Hunter’s Pure Shard
Model Bella Hadid shocked and delighted in her latest show, wearing two jaw-dropping sheer black dresses. other actresses, to like Empire star Taraji P. Henson, have also worn partially sheer dresses on the red carpet, but none have fared as early or as well as Hunter. Although all her unmentionables are covered, this dress is so transparent that we can see the hollow of her navel.
Dressed, but not out
We love everything about this outfit Hunter wore at the Cannes Film Festival while promoting his movie O brother, where are you. She appears standing next to George Clooney, who went the more traditional route with a dark suit. Hunter, meanwhile, took the opposite approach and wore a colorful striped short-sleeved hoodie with a pair of bright orange, possibly corduroy, pants. To top it all off, Hunter rocks a pair of open-toe platform wedges that give a cheeky peek at her red pedicure.
Hunter No-No’s Biggest Red Carpet?
Finally, we got to the look that could get Holly Hunter in trouble if she wore it today. Cultural appropriation has been in the news a lot lately, with several famous personalities being accused of committing the societal no-no. The Kardashian/Jenner family, particularly the youngest member Kylie Jenner, have been accused of cultural appropriation in the past, although the accusations against them stem from copying black culture.
In this photo, Hunter poses with her then-husband, Janusz Kamiński, wearing a traditional Chinese evening dress. While Hunter certainly looks gorgeous, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding wearing clothes from other cultures, though of course there’s some debate about what constitutes cultural appropriation.
We’re absolutely not accusing Hunter of this, but we’d bet a fair bit of money that she wouldn’t repeat this look in order to avoid any possible controversy it spawns.
