Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Andrew Gn

Posted on April 17, 2012

You guys! Rosie H-W put on a dress and it doesn’t actually look all that good on her!

All those voodoo dolls you stuck pins into actually did the trick!

Have we mentioned our hatred of tulip skirts before? No? Well we hate tulip skirts. If you’d like to know why, we refer you to the internationally famous size-0 model making the attempt to wear one in the above pictures and looking like she shoplifted a ham.

Those shoes are adorable but we’re not sure they work with a white dress. As always, though, she’s giving good face. Can’t take that away from her.

  • I love it on her. Call me uncultured 😛

  • tween00

    I have to admit feeling a bit gleeful that the dress doesn’t look good on her. Does that make me a bad person?

    • Not at all. I’m right there with ya.

  • rainwood1

    The photo from the waist up is stunning.  And the shoes are a fun pop of color with the white.

    • JaneDC

      Agree completely. It just goes wrong in the skirt.

  • janedonuts

    Ha! I love those shoes though. 

  • Judy_J

    From the waist up she looks fabulous.  I’m with you on the tulip skirt.  I really hate them.  Shoes are cute, but appear to be too big for her.  Can’t these stylists come up with footwear that fits properly? 

  • Vaniljekjeks

    To be fair, one has to be superhuman to pull off that hem.  I don’t think it particularly flatters anyone.  Even on the model it screams ” poolside wrap”.  

  • Sobaika Mirza

    I like longer tulip skirts, when the parting hits at the knee. Otherwise is looks like curtain for your ladyparts.

    • MilaXX

       I agree, done right I don’t mind a tulip skirt.

  • gdougs

    Ooooh those shoes are fab! Also, does anyone know how Gn is pronounced?

  • judybrowni

    Hate the tulip skirts, even the ones less bunchy.

    Those look like they’re just about to part and reveal a vagina.

  • I don’t love it on her BUt I don’t think I’d love it on anyone. It’s not so much her as it is the dress.

  • Pannyx

    I can’t stand those shoes. Maybe they wouldn’t hurt my eyes as much with a different outfit, but I doubt it.

  • Spicytomato1

    She does look like she shoplifted a ham…inside a diaper. And the shoes actually add to that effect, she looks like a diaper-clad toddler who tried on her mom’s pumps. The shoes on the model, matchy as they are, look better to me.

  • crash1212

    “shoplifted a ham” – tee hee. Well said. Tulip skirts need to die.

  • guest2visits

    She’s looking beautiful. The shoes aren’t for this dress.
    I love tulip skirts; just not this bulky, wrap-over type. Maybe its the material.

  • Frank_821

    part of the problem of course is Rosie’s (and the model’s) proportions. The dress gives a highly pronounce pear shape that’s exasperated by the neckline. It wouldn’t be as bad if she had a naturally bustier body, then we would have more of an hour glass figure

    Also the fabric kind of screams wedding which deters from the whole look even more

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      “exasperated by the neckline” — that was my first belly laugh of the day!  Love it!

  • TieDye64

    Gorgeous from the waist up. The shoes are fun, but I agree they don’t belong with that dress. 

  • ballerinawithagun

    She still looks great! I made a wedding dress similar to this in the nineties. My bride looked better.

  • MilaXX

    It looks like she’s wearing the dress an inch or 2 longer and it’s throwing off proportions. Agreed the shoes are nice. UT don’t exactly go.

  • Celandine1

    Two thoughts on this:
    1) You are a model with an incredible body who gets free red carpet clothes, why would you wear a dress that looks like a swim suit cover up for a beach wedding?

    2) Why do your legs appear orange while the rest of your exposed skin is much lighter?

  • BrooklynBomber

    . . . looking like she shoplifted a ham

    So good it bears repeating.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    it’s the severity of her hair, i think, more than anything. that & that the tulipy part of the skirt doesnt fit right. how i wish a skirt that size would be too big for me. no chance, but it is too big for her. also the shoes are all totally beyond wrong. you like them better than i do. to me, theyre all kinds of discombobulated. the wacky almost batiky print, for example, doesnt match their conservative early 60s style. or at least that is what they look like to me, as much as i can see of them.

  • Cheri Lee

    Her legs look like toothpicks stuck to a marshmallow…not cute.

  • Well…. I like the earrings and the purse…

  • Funkykatt

    I don’t like the shoes only because I don’t like the color blue, I think they would be nice in another shade. 

  • EEKstl

    LOVE the neckline and the bodice but they can’t save that skirt.  Plus a little “bridey” with all the embroidery.  Great “on paper” shoes, but oddly not so great in reality.  Go figure.  

  • nannypoo

    I like the shoes. Everything else is either not so good or just plain bad. And next time she might want to apply that self tanner to the upper part of her body as well.

  • Lina_bee

    I am so with you on the tulip skirt hate. They look weird and unflattering on every shape.

  • kimmeister

    The top half of the dress and the shoes are to die for.

    • TheOtherChristina


  • turtleemily

    RE: Everyone talking about her tan legs vs paler upper body…

    It’s the harsh spotlight from above washing out the top of her. Compare the RC shots to the non-RC ones.

  • butterflysunita

    She looks lovely, but that skirt looks like a diaper.  

  • zmayhem

    She looks less-than-optimal judging against her own personal fabulosity curve, but, damn. The best, most exquisitely garbed and elegantly made-up and effortlessly poised day of my life, I think I looked maybe 1/25th as stunning as her “not actually all that good.”

    • filmcricket

      I’m actually still waiting for my day like that.

  • siriuslover

    I do love the shoes. I would buy those shoes but I don’t know what I could wear them with.

  • Too bridal, especially with those shoes.

  • cleep1000

    The shoes completely ruin it for me. I might have been able to forgive the tulip skirt if paired with a rockin’ pair of white strappy sandals. Yeah, I said it. Matching shoes!

  • Candigirl1968

    That’s a hard dress to wear.  How can it make someone so tiny look hippy?  Also, it looks like a wedding cake.  

  • PeaceBang

    I’m just gonna stare at her face. She’s SO beautiful! And the clutch is divoon. I think the dress is cute on the model, though.

  • Wow, ugly dress. And the shoes. And WHOA, those earrings. GIRL. This is bad.

  • ZnSD

    Oh girl. Did you catch the bouquet? No? Too bad.

  • SapphoPoet

    Yeah, I don’t like the dress either. Also, the earrings scream “Claire’s.” I do like the clutch, though. 

  • mom2ajs5

    Love the shoes! 

  • filmcricket

    Thanks for that link, she does look more normal-coloured in natural light, doesn’t she? And the shoes work better.

    Man, Statham’s got a big head. I mean, I know a lot of movie stars do, but his is just… inordinately large.

  • those shoes!  ~*~swoon~*~

  • placea

    Definitely looks better on Andie … Partly due to fit on Rosie being all wrong!!
    Both girls are beyond gorgeous!!

  • Stephen Bornstein

    Maybe it’s me…but, I love a good ham.

  • NurseEllen

    That dress would look better if it were a FLOOR LENGTH tulip hem, I think.  I don’t know what you’d wear those shoes with, if not a white dress.  (Of course, maybe not *this* white dress.)  And will someone please tell me how the name “Gn” is pronounced?

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    “Shoplifted a ham.”   TLo, please know that I have had the shittiest week in the world.  I needed to be jolted out of it.  You did it.  Thank you so much.  Shoplifted a ham.  OMG I love that so much.  
    Hammishly Yours,

  • I shutter to think how bad I would look in a tulip skirt. I don’t think the material helps either, needs more drape. Other than that, Rosie looks good.

  • Good face, but mother-of-the-bride earrings.  Love the clutch, though.

  • kaycem

    the shoes also don’t fit.  hang your head in shame, RH-W!

  • MoreShoes

    Tulip skirts ar evil. I hate them with passion. They look great on paper but once you try them on, you feel like an overstuffed sausage. Cute shoes, love the clutch.

  • VeryClaire

    That neckline does not actually look good on anyone. Cute shoes.

  • marilyn

    She is cute.  The tulip skirt is narrow enough to give shape but not make her hips look big.  The dress is perfect for contrasting, busy shoes.  The purse is perfect.  It is different, but does not fight the shoes or the dress.  

  • TheOriginalLulu

    What are you guys smokin? She’s among the 0.1% of the female population who can actually look hot in that dress.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Other than the fact that this looks sorta like a bridal dress, I love the whole look.  Beautiful hair and makeup, the dress is cute, lurve the shoes.  She’s quite stunning looking.

  • Jennifer L.

    It looks like the tablecloths from my wedding. Shoes are awesome though.

  • gdougs

    hm, interesting! thanks, I’ve always wondered!

  • butter nut

    well now we know the big trend of prom this year.

  • hearkentoit

    Ugh, I think she looks great. You really gave me hope with that lead-in, guys.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I like the top of the dress (and the halter and the fabric) a lot on her. But that skirt is a definite no.
