Disclaimer: this confusing look on Emmy Rossum may in fact be a costume for her upcoming film Comet.

...But that still means the Beautiful Creatures star's newest character is wearing a lace dress and sneakers! We're not sure there's any valid excuse for this off-kilter combo.

The sophisticated blue lace frock is clearly calling for a simple sandal, and those high top sneaks are a better fit for fitness gear. Perhaps there's a sky high heel waiting for the actress at her next scene?

We'll call off the criticism if the footwear is simply for comfy, on-set transit, but isn't that what ballerina flats are for?
