In or Out: Jessica Alba in Dolce & Gabbana

Posted on August 01, 2011

Let’s rip a preggo, kittens! It’s a longstanding T Lo tradition.

Jessica Alba arrives at ‘Spy Kids: All The Time In The World 4D’ Los Angeles premiere in a Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with a Roger Vivier clutch and a Dolce & Gabbana cuff.

Oooooooh, girl is making a lot of preggo mistakes on this one.  That’s quite the busy little pattern, and, combined with the shape of her body, the shape of her dress, and the shape of her what-the-hell-was-she-thinking hair, she looks like several scoops of ice cream plopped on top of each other. It’s a really cute dress, but we don’t think that tiered style was the way to go, especially since she’s not getting any boob support at all. Also, that is totally 1974 church lady hair. Pair it with cat eye glasses and a polyester Chanel suit ripoff with pills and you’ve got yourself a church secretary, organist, or choir director; possibly all three.

VOTE NOW!

IN! SHE’S PREGNANT!!! Her expensive dress and jewelry were lent to her and her hair and makeup were done professionally, but SHE’S PREGNANT AND THAT OVERRIDES ALL OTHER CONCERNS!!!!

OUT! A melting star-spangled sundae.

The funhouse mirror version of Rachel Weisz was responsible for a lot of debate, but in the end, she was OUT.

    This is a definite out.  Yikes.  She definitely needs a bra… and I don’t know… this dress just seems so sloppy and almost frumpy for her.  Not at all flattering.  I do agree that it’s a cute pattern, though.

    LOVE the back of this dress and the pattern (no preggo woman should want to look slimmer. The bigger you get, the more publicity you’ll surely have). But the top is horrible and I feel sorry for the ladies. Just dangling there in a banana sling of a halter dress must be painful. Out. 

  • Grace Ritt

    I love the pattern and I love the dress and I do like her hair, but she really does need to wear a bra and it’s just not working on her. Also I hate that they made a Spy Kids 4. SPY KIDS 3D WAS AWESOME WITH ITS CLASSY 3D. OUT.

    Agree on the dress and lack of support.  The lines of stars heading down over her boobs emphasize the sag.  But I kinds like the hair–balances out the rest of her.

  • Anonymous

    This was a scroll down to an OUT for me. I liked the hair and the top of the bodice seemed interesting until I saw how saggy her boobs are. So, OUT. But, that being said, she’s very pregnant and should get some leeway. I’m sure that if you, T&Lo had a multi-pound lump on your fronts, you’d be thrilled to look as good as she does right now. 

  • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

    It’s hot out and she’s pregnant so the hair gets a pass. The dress… good night what a hideous bed sheet. Why is there a ruffle on the butt? Why would black and white stars and stripes even be turned into a dress? Who did this to her? That’s cruelty to pregnant ladies.

    OUT – Fire the stylist and find someone who doesn’t hate you, Jessica.

  • Valerie Owens

    I see your points, but as a fellow preggo, gotta stand up for my sister here.  She’s pregnant and therefore wants nothing more than to be sitting on a couch eating ice cream.  All things considered, she looks great. I can’t see her shoes, but if she’s wearing heels, she gets 100 extra points.

    Needs a bra. Seriously. I know it’s hot and uncomfortable, but she looks saggy, dumpy and slovenly. I don’t think the dress would be cute on anyone, but it’s especially unflattering on pendulous, dangling boobs.

    Girl is pregnant. With swollen everything. In the hottest freaking July ever. In my mind that gives her a free pass to go braless/undersupported….breasts do not always have to look perfect! Plus, she looks pretty.

    She looks great from the bump up.  I like the hair and I think the boob issue is OK.  Not the greatest, but concession for carrying a baby inside of her and comfort wins.
    However,She lost me on the ass ruffle that cuts her bottom third in a bad spot.  And the accessories.  The cuff is a solid version of the fabric–talk about matchy-match. The silver nail polish–twee!  And ugly clutch.   These things have nothing to do with being pregnant and/or uncomfortable.
    OUT

    I don’t mind the dress, but I LOOOOVE the bracelet.

    OUT! I get that she’s a million months pregnant, hot and uncomfortable. So am I. There’s also not enough money in the world to make me go out in public in this dress. Did no one tell her that pregnant ladies can’t rely on strapless bras to hold the girls up? Or that there was a tier/ruffle running directly across the middle of her ass? If this dress didn’t have any ridiculous tiers it might’ve been fixable- especially if it also didn’t involve cheap plastic jewelry.

    Oh dear.  Saggy sag sag on top and dizzying pattern all the way down thru baby bump to the floor.  WTH hair and kinda ugly chunky bracelet makes this one an OUT.

    I always find her boring but this is a complete OUT.  No one over the age of about 8 should wear head-to-toe stars.  Plus, the matching star bracelet is just ridiculous (though I’d like it paired with some jeans and a tee).  And, the lack of a bra while heavily pregnant just seems so uncomfortable.

    I’m usually sympathetic to pregnant women because I know it can’t be easy to dress their bodies during extreme weather conditions. But, this look definitely deserves an out. Hate the pattern and the butt-ruffle. She doesn’t even look all that thrilled with it either. OUT.

    It’s an okay look for late pregnancy on a warm night. It’s the premirere of a kids movie, so it wasn’t going to be super glam anyway.
    I’m not in love with the hip seam. The dress looks rather like an Old Navy Town Gown $12.99 for a limited time only. But I would say that is the fault of the designers, not the wearer.

    For a woman that pregnant and in that heat she looks okay, but didn’t she used to be cute and sexy?  I guess she gave up on cute and sexy.  That bottom tier of the dress is what pushed it over the edge to total unflattering.  Those boobs look sloppy.  I mean if you are going out on the red carpet, put yourself together.  She looks like she’s going grocery shopping.

    It’s an **OUT**. The bracelet reminds me of Rachel Berry’s signature, and the frock reminds me of Ursula the Sea Witch. But as a guy, I can’t imagine what it must be like for her… pregnant on a hot summer’s day in Los Angeles. I really can’t hate her (or her gay’s) decision to wear it.  It looks very breezy and comfortable, and that’s probably more important right now.

    Ok, yeah, that dress is a mess on her, and the hair is, well, odd, but she’s got that I-survived-the-early-part-of-my-pregnancy glow, and she looks legitimately happy, not like she’s just smiling for the cameras, so I’m giving her a pass because she’s making me smile.  IN.

    Hey, I was pregnant with twins last summer, and when I was on couch rest, my girls were free as can be.  Now, would I have gone out like that? No, But I’m not cute and small like her.  Here’s the sad, gross truth.  When you’re pregnant in the summer and have profuse boob sweat under swollen breasts, you get a rash AND acne under your boobs, and the bra makes this worse, not better, because it rubs against it all–it’s a horrible existence, I’m telling you.  So, I salute her going bra-free.  And, who cares if the ruffle makes her look bigger?  She’s cute, she looks like she’s at least getting a breeze under that dress, and I like the hair, too.  IN.

    Here’s a question I’ve always thought about but never asked.
    If a celebrity is not an average Hollywood size for whatever reason. Why do they always go though the usual names for clothes when it’s such slim pickings?
    There must be many smaller designers would would kill, and I do mean KILL to get their clothes on a celebrity, even if it meant designing a dress specifically for a woman who’s pregnant or someone who’s a little larger than model size. I mean it can’t be that difficult to find someone who’s willing to make you a dress just to get their name out there, that doesn’t make you look terrible.

    Ooof. Ruffles in all the wrong places, and a neckline that calls for small, pert, and supported breasts. OUT.

    Just FYI – TLo, the church lady/suit/pills reference confused me for a nanosecond. I then realized you meant the polyester suit had pills, not the lady per se – although she probably had pills too. That is what was meant – that the suit was pilled ? Right?

    Well, I mostly like it. She’s way pregnant and if she doesn’t mind looking like a cheerful couch covered with made-over cafe curtains, why should I mind? BUT. The saggy boobs are too much for the red carpet.  I also like the hair, in theory, though the messy fly-aways visible from the rear view are not red carpet-worthy. Even if she WAS late for the hair stylist and had to leave the chair twice to go to the bathroom.

    So, OUT. I like the get-up and think she looks fine, if she’s happy. But it’s not good enough for a red carpet “in,” there’s a standard to be maintained.

    I say she’s in. I think she looks cute. 

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    I like the bangle.  The dress’s print is too busy, and the tiers are not helping.  Worst offense is the droopy boobs – she needs some serious support right about now.  Hair is meh, makeup is fine.  I give her an OUT – she’s got the resources to do much better, no matter how far along her pregnancy is.

    I like the dress ok (kind of an interesting maternity dress), but not the hair and the lack of any color. OUT. On the other hand, she looks happy which is a plus.

    My currently significantly less pregnant self is cringing at the lack of boobie support.  Going without a bra is super painful!

    Out City. But I want that cuff.

    Sympathy IN. The only reason she was even at this premiere is because she has to show her face at any and all opportunities before the world forgets who she is. Given that she’s about 13 months pregnant, I’m sure she would much rather have been at home, on the couch with her feet up.
    The dress looks comfy, and I’m sure that was priority one.

    I think she looks OK and I like the bracelet. IN

    She looks happy and glowy, but the styling kills me. Everything in black and silver, down to the nail polish? Puh-leeze. Out.

    True equality means making fun of the stupid shit pregnant women wear to the same extent that we mock their non-with-child counterparts. Thus, OUT.

    Obviously from the clearance rack at Macy’s. Bracelet from SEARS.  Enough of that….who is the cute guy in the background?

    Out.  I HATE long, tiered dresses.  A pregnant woman in one looks like a sectional sofa.

    Jeez, I guess I’m way in the minority here. I think she looks great. It looks cool and comfortable and she definitely needs that right now. IN.

    I like everything about it you hated.  Her hair looks sexy to me… The dress is cute too.

    Hate the dress with a passion, but in all honesty, I do like the hair (I don’t care!). Still, it’s an out. I do think she looks very healthy and much more attractive with a little more meat on her arms and face :D She should keep it!

    OUT. Never be afraid to show you’re pregnant, but this is something else.

    its not braless..her boobicals fall JUST at half down the upper arm as they should I think she looks pretty damn cute. Color could belighter – but hair up mid blazen summer – Im into it.

    It’s never time for a tiered dress, and especially not when one has a bun in the oven. OUT.

  • Anna Maria Diamanti

    Call me crazy, I don’t get the hate. Yes, she needs more support up front but that dress is fab, the chunky bracelet is a perfect compliment, love the hair. And I love how the tiered effect works on a pregnant–when you’re that far along, there’s no point in trying to minimize. I say she WERQed it.

    I have a slight weakness for the church lady hair. From the front, her hair looks very pretty. But, really Jessica, if someone  says to you “spangled maternity halter dress with matching cuff” you should back away slowly. Or hit them with your purse. Out.

  • Terence Ng

    Visually, it’s very Ursula the Sea Witch, and I love her for that.

  • Caitlin Gozdecki

    I can forgive the print and possibly the hair.. but that one ruffle right across the butt mixed with bra-less boobs? Let’s just say- pregnant or not, its an OUT

  • Anonymous

    OUT. The way this dress is seamed is incredibly unflattering on her.

  • http://twitter.com/mcglory13 mcglory13

    I think she needs a better strapless bra, but other than that I say in. At that stage in my pregnancy I was wearing yoga pants and t-shirts. I know you make fun of people who give pregnant women passes, but seriously, what the hell do you know about being pregnant. It ain’t a lot of fun. She looks great for a woman with a young kid and who is very pregnant.

    Cut her some slack, she’s pregnant in the summertime. Wish she’d worn a bra but she looks cute all things considered. Giving her an IN.

    OUT. The girls really need some support and the hair, well, what TLo said. And no girl needs a butt ruffle.

    • Alloy Jane

      Butt ruffle, lol.  Honestly, that pattern makes her look like a jellyfish.

  • Anonymous

    she needs more support on top and that weird seam right below her belly is a no no. The print I could take it or leave it. For the hair, I love it. It is campy and we need more camp on the red carpet, although it needs to be better in terms of the technical side. OUT

       that was my first thought too!  but prom hair that your friend who’s practicing to become a stylist did for you at home, because it’s just a giant ball of wilted frizz.

    I give her a pass on what would ordinarily be a questionable hairstyle, because it’s very hot and she’s very pregnant.  The dress is just terrible—between the extra horizontal ruffle and the unconstructed bodice, I don’t know which is worse, and neither is very flattering for a woman who’s expecting.  If you want to stay home with your feet up, honey, then DO SO and skip the silly premiere–we all understand.  If not, then make the effort to look better for your fans and yourself.  Seeing you in this dress makes me wince.

    OUT, it makes it look like her breasts are melting.

    OUT. agreed, she looks like scoops of ice cream layered on top of each other, and the stars pattern just looks cheap. Polka dots would have been better than the stars.

    Out. The pattern looks like tentacles from a distance, and with her shape and hair she’s looking like Ursula!

    I could accept the badly placed ruffle if there was chest support.

    A bra and better hair would have made all the difference.

    OUT, she needs some support for her boobs, honey they are huge and heading south, you need to lift them now while you still can.

  • http://twitter.com/kmc1138 Kathleen Coyle

    As I have learned over and over when trying them on (why I continue to do so, I have no idea), that dress shape doesn’t look good with anyone with any meat on their bones at all.  Ever.  Love the print of the fabric, tho’.

  • Anonymous

    I actually think the dress would have worked extremely well for her  if it didn’t have that tier around the hips.  If it fell straight to the ground I actually think it would have complimented her pregnant form very well, and the pattern doesn’t bother me at all.  I was thinking 1974 Miss Alabama hair, but I hear ya.  IN
