    “DAYUM” is a very hetero male response.

    She looks great, fits her like a glove, shoes are pathetic but really – who is looking at the shoes?

    I would have also liked a slightly darker lip (nothing too dark, but they’re basically blending in with the rest of her face). However, she looks straight-up HOT. So, yes. WERQ.

      I think it would have looked good with a matchy red, a la James King.

        Huh, I was really excited that they DIDN’T do the match lip. I love the slightly iced-out makeup with her pale hair and the dress. I think a red lip would have made the rest of her head disappear.

    She looks like a dewier Scarlett Johansson here.

      A cross between Scarlett Johansson and Kendra Wilkinson.

    I actually like the nude shoes here — they make her legs look even longer and don’t move the focus from her lovely face and dress. I’m wondering though, how long the trend of minimal jewelry will last. I miss seeing gorgeous necklaces and bangles on the red carpet.

      I have to say, and it pains me to say it, that I agree with you about the shoes. She’s wearing a gorgeous dress, but mostly, she’s wearing a pair of fabulous legs, and the shoes make them even fabulouser (Josh word). :)

        She looks Glamazin (Viktor’s)!

    I love the hair—so much better than the “just rolled out of bed” looks we’ve been seeing (and you’ve been disparaging, rightly) lately.  A little more pop in the lipstick and a better pair of shoes would have given her 10/10.  As it is: 9.5 and WERQ!

    DAYUM – actually HOT DAYUM -  is right – and I’m a straight woman! Now that’s what I call a DRESS! And j’dore the pale skin. Ah, to be young, thin and rich…..

    I actually like her hair – but yes, the shoes are a mess.

    Pretty much impossible to complain about anything here -  l love her hair!!

    I love the Wilma hair! Its Anti-scraggly bed hair!

    like how the eyes are the focus on her face and the lipstick is just a pale reflection of the color of the gown.  and I’m so glad to see someone other than Taylor Swift in ES.

    she looks like she’s wrapped in a towel after a shower. meh. 

  • Kyle Crawford

    Is she still dressed form the Emmys ?  Yes, she looks very nice, but if this is where we are for WERQS – washed out hair/face, accessories as a complete after thought, so five min ago shoes AND gyno slit… then the entire concept of working it has really come down. It’s been done.

    • Anonymous

      I completely agree. I also think she needs something around the neck. This still has a long way to go for a WERQ from me.

    I agree with everything that’s already been said.  I just have a question…Does she have makeup on her legs?  Look how smooth and matte they are in that last shot.  It doesn’t look like she’s wearing hose but there is no shine to her leg at all.  That is attention to detail.

    • Anonymous

      Being a pro-hosiery gal I noticed that too, must be makeup. Interesting…

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure she’s got leg make-up on, and possibly some on her shoulders/arms as well. Too bad they couldn’t match it to the stuff on her face.

      She is working the dress, and I don’t mind the shoes in this case, but I’d have preferred a more old-Hollywood makeup job to go with the dress and hair, as opposed to the “natural glow” thing she’s got going on. Also, she is in dire need of some dramatic earrings. Still looks good, though.

      ha, I scrolled down to that picture and got stuck debating whether or not she was wearing stockings. Her arms also look very matte, full body makeup or lighting? I can’t decide if I like the matte effect, or if its weird that she already looks photoshopped.

    DAYUM, indeed.  she looks like sex on a stick that someone dipped in a bucket of hotness.  i dont love the hair but i much prefer it over the messy shit that has been passing for a hairdo lately on the red carpet.

    Wow. No one can accuse HER of looking for a yeast infection, that’s for sure.

    she looks like plastic

    It kind bores me. Yikes!

    Does anyone else see a Scarlett Johansson resemblance?

    • Anonymous

      Yes to both things.

  • Anonymous

    She looks gorgeous. I actually like the hair, but the shoes were a bad choice. Over all, though, WERQ!

  • Anonymous

    I like the hair, but I do hate the shoes. 

    I can’t imagine wearing something that I would worry all night about flashing my hoo-hah, but it is a pretty hot dress.

      There is a little concern about displaying all the good china, isn’t there?…

    Yawn.
    Is that a person or a mannequin?

    I like her hair — it suits the dress and doesn’t make whole the look too hootchy, like loose hair might. That slit is WAY to high. The shoes are gross.

  • Anonymous

    What is it with the putty shoes?….were they inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge’s court shoes?…..Hollywood stylists are like lemmings sometimes..like Loubuotins…..

    Beautiful. 

    I love the Hollywood classic glam of it.  The hair is fine with me.  Love her makeup…really accentuates her eyes.  I’m glad she didn’t go for the standard red lip…too expected.  Minimal jewelery works here too…a sparkly bracelet wouldn’t have hurt the look though.  The shoes..ugh…a sparkly sandal would have been perfect.  Those shoes are disappointing. Perhaps a bit too much leg out on display too…imo. 

    Overall…she deserves the WERQ.

    ScarJo vibe? Anyone?

    Amber Heard is my current crush and this is only helping that. And apparently she is a lesbian! I have a chance, in some vague far-off dream where we meet.

    I hate the slit in the skirt.   Hate.   It’s not cute.  Not sexy.  It kind of ruins a nice gown.

  • Anonymous

    She looks cute but I don’t feel VA VA voom from her. I feel like she needs more curves to rock this look or maybe it’s the lack of jewels? Something feels missing….

    Wow.  I hate this look.  Too, too much.

    WOW. I whistled at my monitor when I saw that first picture.

  • MilaXX

    I like the hair and makeup. Even though the slit and the shoes are both things I hate, girlfriend is WERQ’ing this!

  • http://twitter.com/nicolahearts nicole seligman

    she does nothing for me. looks like a washed out barbie in a red sheet.

    who is this b??? she is STUNNING.

  • http://profiles.google.com/sntierney Shannon Tierney

    Other than her dress, she is all one color. She’s a gorgeous gal (see her in The Joneses) but she washes herself out with the pale hair and makeup. Go back to brunette and buy a lipstick and we’ll talk.

  • Anonymous

    She does look amazing, but I’m disturbed by her leg being a different color than the rest of her exposed body.  Is it just my monitor?

    • Mary McClelland

      No – I had wondered if she was wearing panty hose of some kind??

  • Christina Brennan

    I also don’t know who she is. I thought she was some weird Scarlet Johanssen and Kendra from the girls next door combination.  As for the dress, she looks good in it.  I don’t know; I’m actually kind of ambivalent.

  • Anonymous

    NO.  NO NO NO.  WTF is that dress doing slit up so high that I see what appears to be red swim panties?  And the shoes?  SHUDDER!   And her hair?  I am sorry but that poofy bump thing on her head reminds me of 1987 Mall Hair.  OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT.

    Those shoes.  Yech!

    what a fucking babe!

  • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

    i dont know who she is but the dress is great & the shoes, in this case, are probably the right ones– they lengthen the line she is trying to lengthen admirably & in a way no other type would.

  • kim i

    wait.  is this scarjo 2.0?

  • Anonymous

    i actually like that everything else – the coloring of the face, the shoes, etc. – is very muted/pale/played down/whatever. its all about her in the dress.

    • Anonymous

      I agree. I think this is one instance where silly putty shoes were the right choice.

    TLo, I’m not feeling the Wilma Flintstone love much from you guys.

    When only 33% of your praise is positive, IMHO I think we need something between “In or Out” and “WERQ!” 

    Maybe “SNAP!”  So Nearly Almost Perfect!

    Oh, also: stripper shoes.

  • Anonymous

    She looks PHENOMENAL.  I have to admit though, I’m a little freaked out by how unnervingly perfect she looks.  Like she’s made out of paint and plastic.  The only thing that indicates she’s human are the itty bitty veins in her feet.  Still.  HOT DAMN.

    Very VERY Scarlett clone.  Granted, if you’re gonna be a clone, that’s the clone to be, but still….

    She’s like the blonde version of Jessica Rabbit. Tasya van Ree is a lucky lady!

    I love the hair, and I’m glad that for once it doesn’t look slept on (vs every other female on the red carpet)!

    The perfect example of “less is more.” Simple and positively sexy.

    I think the nude shoes give her a longer leg just when he needs one.

  • Mary Lauer

    I think she looks like Kendra Wilkinson in the third pic. That expression is SO Kendra!

  • frankystein123

    Why Amber? Why the goddamn nude pumps?! Other than that, the girl is killin’ it.
