Kristen Stewart in Marchesa

Posted on May 15, 2012

T and Lo are fighting again. Over a dress. But this time, we’re not just on opposite sides; we’re continents, if not galaxies away from each other.

Consider:

 

Kristen Stewart attends the World Premiere of “Snow White And The Huntsman” in London in a Marchesa gown.

Marchesa Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Lara Mullen

Lorenzo thinks this look is stunning, The lacework is intricate and interesting, and combined with the hair and makeup, offers an extremely sophisticated look. He commends her for making the effort, because he thinks that these types of dresses are not at all easy to pull off and well outside her wheelhouse. He also thinks, since he saw this dress walk the runway in February, that this dress doesn’t photograph well at all and that in all likelihood, she looked even more stunning in person.

Tom thinks this is easily one of the least attractive garments he’s seen in ages – and he thought so back in February when he watched it walk the runway as well. He appreciates the skeleton motif and thinks that’s one of the few elements that actually works and is beautiful in a dark sort of way. It’s all those patches of black lace that he hates, and how they break her body into components. Wrinkled components. All that ruffling and shirring is so oddly placed that the dress seems determined to do everything it can to work against a woman’s natural shape. He gives her all the credit in the world for making the attempt to wear something like this and it certainly fits with the “dark fairy tale” theme of the movie, but ultimately this isn’t just a dress to tough for her to pull off, it’s a dress that no one can really pull off.

So who’s right here? Remember: your answer will determine whether or not we put you in our will.

      That dress is ugly.

          That big ruffle over her lady parts is awful.  I’ve got to go with a big NO on this one.

      • kcarb1025

        So is that ever-present sour face of hers.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Even if she is naturally introverted, she’s chosen a profession that requires dealing with the press and public.  Is it really that hard to crack a smile when  you’re young, talented and attractive?

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HIZ7S2FRLC52NXARXQ4ERHNOGE Liz

            She has said in interviews that she gets anxiety attacks on the red carpet, so I would guess that yes, it is that hard for her.

        It’s just horrid.

         I don’t think it is couture. Just the fall 2012 collection. Not that that makes it better.

           Oh dear!  I’m out of Lorenzo’s will.

          But tasteful Tom and I agree that poor Kristen has a terrible skin disease on her lower appendages.  Her upper body, however, is beyond my ability to comment on in a rational way.

      Super ugly

    • http://twitter.com/wednesdaydreams Natalie

      terrible dress. it’s not interesting either. maybe with someone with more presence could pull it off, but i doubt it

        I didn’t see it, but now I cannot unsee it.

    • Sobaika

      I like this, but would love it if she had better posture, hair, and makeup. For some reason she always looks sloppy.

      I think this dress is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. And I’m not even just talking about clothes. 

    • http://twitter.com/PinkSith Pink Sith

       I hate when daddy and daddy fight!

    • http://twitter.com/TerraIncognita Terra Walker Mrkulić

      If she could stand up straight and put some kind of expression on her face I might be more inclined to give some positive feeling to this ensemble. Suddenly I have the song, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile” running through my head….

         Oh great, now I have it stuck in my head too! Off to Pandora before I start having flashbacks of my high school’s production of Annie!

        Ugh…too late :-(.

      • megohd

        That’s always my issue with her. She just seems miserable! I haven’t seen her act, but her magazine appearances don’t motivate me to do so.

    • hillmad

      …and those frills around her “lady parts”!!!

    • fiestyfashionfem

      See previous comment – NO SHEER DRESSES! Stop it! OUT!  Out, damned spot! I’m sure it is lovely in person, the delicate lace work, yadda yadda yadda.  And fashion is art. Blah Blah Blah.  But it is ugly as hell as a garment. Sorry, Lo.

    • Shannon Beamer

      UGH.  Sorry Lo, but I’m with Tom on this one.  It’s a black lace, see-through monstrosity.  OUT OUT OUT (although her makeup does look pretty good here).

    • Paigealicious

      Dress horrible, her attitude even more stank.

      • regina arthur

        What attitude?  Just comment on the dress and leave your biases at the door.  The dress isn’t the greatest but I give her an A for trying different things.  You can’t fault her for that.

        • Paigealicious

           The attitude that’s making the dress look worse on her than it probably should?

        • EditKitten

          She’s a beautiful girl. But if she stood up straighter and might pretend to want to be wherever she is at a given moment, it would make a lot of difference. It’s not so much judgment as the “Damn, I hate everybody” look on her face.

    • gabbilevy

      I think I would love this dress if Rooney Mara was wearing it, but I can’t see past my blinding dislike of Kstew.

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      I’m with Tom. I LOVE the back, thanks to my weird fascination with the human skeleton, but the front is just totally baffling. Hell, if it were even just plain black lace on the front I might be on board. (Might.) Plus, her hair and makeup look lovely. But I just do not get the front design and think it’s wicked unflattering.

      • http://twitter.com/taijuuuh Taija HU!

        I agree about the back. It is so beautiful – but it shouldn’t be combined with the already fussy dress. It should be in a dress that doesn’t have another 10 elements all trying to overpower each other. 

        • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

           YES. The back is incredible. If only the front lived up to it.

    • MilaXX

      Guess I’m in Tom’s will cause this is looks fug to me. I think this dress is better suited for editorial work or at the very least someone with more skills at showing off clothes than KStew possesses.

      • raininmai

         I’m in full agreement.

      • formerlyAnon

         I’m guessing so many of us are in Tom’s will that after the nieces, nephews and cats are taken care of, we’ll each get about 1/12 of a cent.

    • Jessi03

      Tom is right.  Sorry, Lo!  Not feeling it.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GJYUDH734WLXHJQLK4EAO5X45Q Carrie

      Team Tom!  As the Fuggirls said “giant vaginal mustache”

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Erin-Hines/620149309 Erin Hines

      IT looks like she has tuffs of hair all over her body. hiddy. Tom all the way!

    • deathandthestrawberry

      The back of the dress is stunning, but the front of the dress looks awful. But I give her kudos for trying it, and I think she’s mostly pulling it off. It is kinda rock-n-roll, which is her thing.

    • fireontiger

      The back is gorgeous. The front… listen, it really just looks like her ladybits migrated a few inches north and are sitting squarely below her belly button. It’s… awful.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cortney-Dean/100002491593625 Cortney Dean

      Hate this dress. And I am pretty sure I would hate it on anyone. She just looks like shes molting. Or has a mold issue in her closet.

    • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

      I agree with Tom. That dress is hideous. The black lace looks like furry armpits. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WRIGZZ4I2MRXWVTR5MQVH5PNB4 Henry

      I think I might like if if there wasn’t a stomacher-like effect and the skirt had an opaque lining of some sort.  As is, it’s butt ugly.

    • TRSmith

      I hate that ruffle in front. It makes her look like she needs to be waxed.

    • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

      Well, SHE’S definitely not the one who can pull off that dress on the red carpet! She looks awkward wearing the simplest dress, how can she possibly pull off something this fashion-y?

      • Spicytomato1

        Good point. She should be taking baby steps, not a giant leap, away from her preferred Vans and skinny jeans uniform.

    • frannyprof

      So ugly. 

    • SpcilK

      What The Hell!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506473106 Mori Clark

      it looks pretty cute in that last picture, but everything else….. rrgh. sorry lo but im siding with tom on this. 

    • Erika Sanders

      Tom is right.  It’s hideous.  Among other issues, it looks like some kind of mold or fungus is growing out of her armpits and and grabbing at her breasts.  Ugh.

    • frannyprof

      And is she wearing a Scrunchie in her hair? Because it looks like one. Ugh. I could go on, but why?

    • VeryClaire

      I’m in Tom’s will!

    • http://profiles.google.com/rociosaurio Rocío Vázquez

      I think someone extra fierce could pull it off…. but she is not that person, looks hideous.

    • annrr

      Tom all the way. That dress is hideous. It draws your eye to all the wrong places, namely her armpits. Hate the skeleton on the back too.

    • Oze R.

      I am mostly with Tom: terribly busy dress (and too close to Givenchy). Yes, we credit the girl for trying something daring (and for closing her lovely lips, yay!), but this just not her dress. Give it to La Blanchett and she will command the red carpet, as usual, but it looks overdone on Miss Stewart. And the attitude is not helping her *sigh*

      • Adriana_Paula

        I totally thought Cate might be The One Who Could Wear This!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_USL26YJKMOXWSKB4WFPLWAFCGU Vera Lucksted

      The dress is…strange. I don’t hate it, I certainly like elements of it, but overall it’s too busy/fussy/weird.

      Kstew looks lovely though, her make up is spot on.
      Worth nothing that she posed with Charlize, who is rocking a similar look. Krissie should take notes!

    • Marissa Wiley

      Kudos to Kristen for taking a big risk.  This risk unfortunately resulted in a big, ugly fail.  OUT.

    • Amy_R

      it looks like one of those clear overlays showing muscles that encyclopedias used to have. Plus, as always, she looks uncomfortable in it. Out.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

      This is awful-and it represents everything I can’t stand about Marchesa. 

    • Jana Falknor

      HIDEOUS.

    • Judy_J

      I hate it with a passion.  Unreasonable, gut-reaction passion.  I haven’t reacted this violently to a gown in a very long time.

    • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

      Yuck yuck yuck.  Tom is right on this on!

    • Presumptuous Insect

      Hideous!

    • Molly OBM

      The more I look at it, the more I… Like it! Love the back but could lose the middle frill. Actually prefer it to Charlize’s, it’s more interesting.

    • funnilyquaint

      Tom’s right again — love her hair and makeup but the rest of her body looks like it’s succumbing to a weird fungal infection. Also her boob and vag lace splotches make her look like she wasn’t stern enough with her body hair and now it’s gleefully consuming her body, unable to be banished by wax. Plus her navel has a mustache. Plus it’s black lace. A LOT of black lace.

    • Aurumgirl

      All I can think when I look is that a death’s head has left some despicable pit stains on Our Poor Dour-Face.  

    • Steve Kynaston

      What an ugly, ugly dress.  Even the wicked stepsisters wouldn’t be caught dead in this mess

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180158327 James Figueiredo

      OUT.
      Not that the dress is particularly ugly or anything, but she looks absolutely MISERABLE for having to wear it.

    • Jessica Goldstein

      Uncle Tom, I always did love you best. But seriously, how long have I been reading you guys that I knew which of you liked and which hated? I hate as well, on the runway and on Kristen. This is no-one’s dress. 

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      You know that when you two fight it makes me cry salty tears, but then again, so does that dress.  I see where she was going with this, what with the mood of the RC & the movie, but it has all gone horribly wrong.  The skeletal elements are definitely the best bits, but the rest of it is a metric shit ton of ugly.  Maybe – MAYBE – this could have been pulled off by someone with as much swagger & personal style as Helena Bonham Carter or Dita Von Teese, but that is IT.  Certainly not Stewart.  I will now crawl under my desk, curl up in a ball, and gently hum to myself until I can forget this garment’s existence.  

    • SusiePamudji

      I’m going to kinda’ sorta’ split the difference: I was not offended when I saw it in motion. I imagine I would probably be ok with it if I saw it in person. But in photos? When you can clearly see the crotch pointing lace? Not down with that. I do think she still looks gorgeous despite the crazy dress.

    • TieDye64

      Sorry Lo, I’m siding with Tom on this one. All that black lace, ack, and it’s making her lady bits looks really weird. No bueno.

    • Aly Light

      OUT OUT OUT OUT… Blegh. The girl wearing it is not warming my opinion, either. I like the skeleton bit– maybe we could take that element and work it into, say, an actual dress, rather than a shredded tablecloth?

    • Lina_bee

      On a model in runway context:  arty, strange, possibly beautiful, and definitely eye-catching.
      On anyone in real life context:  FLAMENCO SKELETOR. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/opheliafl Karen Clark

      I didn’t like it at first glance from the front even, but then the lace spine/ribs back did it for me.  Horrid.  Maybe appropriate at a Halloween Ball or something, but hello, it’s May.

    • tired_mommy

      I’m with Tom on this one–all I can see are insanely hair pits–YUCK!

    • http://twitter.com/neuaehs Sheauen Chung

      it looks like shes molting…and we will have a softer more vulnerable version of kristen.

    • alyce1213

      I’m firmly with Tom on this.  Another fugly Marchesa, this time waaay over the top.
      “Intricate” is far too kind. This is an Ungapotchked mess.

    • suzq

      I want to like this dress, but I can’t.  Here’s why: 1. The patches in the runway version were not as dark.
       2. The runway model throws her shoulders back.  This is not a dress for a slouchy woman. 
       3. This dress is two overwrought.  It looks messy close-up, which is too bad because I, too, love the skeletal lace motif.It’s not the most complimentary dress for Kristen.  But I place the blame squarely on Georgina Chapman’s shoulders.  Girl needs to edit herself!

    • JasmineAM

      “..and here class, are the sternum and clavicle.” 
      This dress is super FUG, and I have irrational hate for this girl. A smile or at least a look of interest would make this a little bit better.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      The skeleton thing is pretty cool – and very “her”.  But the massive armpit stain motiff cannot be ignored.  I feel the dread just looking at it…

    • Wellworn

      ITA Tom.  Sorry Lorenzo.  Wrinkled ink blots.  Kind of like the spine in the back though.  Just not flattering, and too weird.  And…black lace!  Nuff said.

    • http://twitter.com/Nanskatoon Nancy Skaggs

      If she could manage to look ANYTHING but absolutely zoned-out/stoned/bored/over it, then maybe this could be carried off. But God, her face is LIFELESS. She is dead-eyes to the max.

    • ChiKat67

      The only place this dress might work is in an editorial in Vogue Japan.  Another OUT for SW&tH gals.

    • http://profiles.google.com/melantha.chimera Eileen Duffy

      The dress is hideous.

      And honestly…. Kristen Stewart is supposed to be “more fair” than Charlize Theron?  In what universe???

    • http://twitter.com/elousive elouise

      Props to Kristen for taking on such a challenging dress, but I agree with Tom. Ugly, and the arrangement of patches on her chest and stomach look a bit like a giant awkward smiley face. 

    • Dr. Derf van der Derf

      I like it from the back and side but it is awful from the front. Her face  looks nice.

    • RebeccaKW

      I actually love the dress on the model.  I think it’s odd, but beautiful.  But.  Kristen does not have the attitude to pull this off.  This calls for fierce bitch face and K is just sour bitchy face.  Also, she’s too awkward-with the way she stands, her posture.  And there seems to be some sort of visible underwear on Kristen.  Not that I’m wishing to see skin, but it really affects the look of the dress.

    • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Audra R

      Her hair and makeup look gorgeous, that dress is awful. Love the white part that looks like bones though, hate the black patches.

    • leah besson

      im with tom.  this is ugly (but i like the skeleton back)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Katherine-Lavender/553350310 Katherine Lavender

      Completely and utterly agree with Tom. The only pretty or interesting feature is the silver spinal effect, and that is not enough to compensate for the black fungal growths erupting everywhere else on her body. Also, I would refer you to the Fug Girls’ description of this dress as having a giant vaginal moustache. WHAT DRESS CAN SURVIVE A VAGINAL MOUSTACHE DESCRIPTION? SoSO OUT. Sorry Lorenzo!

    • LuisaNL

      that dress is beyond unflattering, should be destroyed immediately. I’ll give her an A for effort, tho.

    • http://twitter.com/april_anita April

      It makes her look furry – apelike. While I can appreciate the skeleton-lace (something I never thought I’d ever type in my life) on a theoretical level, it just doesn’t work with the black fuzzy mold spore lace she’s draped in. 

    • kittenwithaquip

      Tom, Bitter Kittens, my apologies. I agree with Lorenzo. It suits her and the movie she’s promoting, and I have just enough pseudo-goth in me to love the skeleton. It’s dark and dreamy and makes me want to see her movie even more.

    • Little_Olive

      Attack of the black jellyfish.

      Also: honey, quit trying. You yourself admit to not like all this. Just let it go. 

    • Pants_are_a_must

      I’m with Tom. I’m not fond of her, but this time she is absolutely hindered by a dress that looks like lace is spreading over her body like a virus. And not in an awesome McQueen kind of way.

    • Patti Lever

      Enough with the sheer dresses. Enough with wearing your grandma’s curtains mixed in with her dollies. UGH…Enough!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=558631967 Ivona Foster

      The dress has potential to bee stunning… if all the cutout crap stopped somewhere near the navel runching and went into a simple skirt from there, or even if the skirt she has was lined.

      But as it stands, OUT.  
      Love her make up and love her

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=517890557 Willis Cramer Kliefoth

      gorgeous on top, lots of potential, lazy lazy lazy skirt design. Shame on Marchesa. If I see one more limp lace sheer skirt ruining an otherwise pretty dress I’m going to cry.

    • chelwi

      I hate the front of the dress and her hair, but I love seeing her in something different. I’m torn.

    • claudemtl777

      lord no…that does not work at all, and she looks even more depressed than usual…

    • Courtney Brown

      I really really realllllly don’t like this dress. 

    • Sue_Asponte

      Omg it’s horrible. Her armpit hair is eating her body.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Bet she made Charlize look freakin’ fantastic when they stood next to eachother, tho…..

    • Spicytomato1

      The dress is wearing her. She looks like a child playing dress up. Hair and makeup are pretty, though.

    • NCDFan

      Sorry but this is butt ugly.

    • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

      Her posture is awful- she might as well be wearing Keds and cutoff shorts. This is a hard dress to wear on its own, but it never had a chance with someone who looks so obviously uncomfortable wearing it. 

      BTW, the dress is ugly, but it could at least be “interesting” on a more charismatic starlet.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=713709401 Randy Noak

      Fugly.

    • bookish

      The dress is plain ol’ ugly. I think she’s as close to pulling it off as anyone could possibly get, but that doesn’t make the dress any less ugly. Like Tom said, it would look a lot better without all the different sections of black on the front.

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

       i think it’s striking even though it’s not the most flattering, and it works with the themes of her film.  perhaps if there were a way to cinch the waist, it would look more harmonious and not turn her quite so boxy. as for the makeup, that’s where my problem lies. those greenish bluish gunmetal shadows are just not working for me; she looks corpse-ish. i would have darkened up with a more committed smokey eye in a darker blue, or warmed it up with some brown tones, or even better, played against the gothic qualities of the dress and given her a rosy, dewy look with thick lashes. i mostly like the hair but would have liked a little more visual interest in the front.

    • miscorrections

      I do love the skeleton motif but the navel beard and the vagina mustache are, though amusing, deeply hideous.

      It is a horrific dress in every way.

    • unbornfawn

      I’m not crazy about the dress, it is awfully busy. I don’t think she is pulling it off at all. It looks a lot better on the model. The dress is a little too long for her and the make-up is way too soft.  Another, taller, more confident ladystar could pull this off. It is a whole lotta dress.

    • R. L.

      Awful.

      Oh, Lo, honey, no.  If Lea Michele looks scarred, Kristen looks blistered and peeling (in the areas she doesn’t look crispy or hairy). Ick!

    • http://twitter.com/taijuuuh Taija HU!

      I love the embroidery and beading in the back. Otherwise, I really don’t like this dress. And it certainly isn’t suite for her – she always comes off looking so sloppy and gloomy despite what she’s wearing. Not a fan.

      I’m with Tom on this one.

    • Kristinoten

      Uncle Lo, I’ll sit on your chaise.  Even though I’m so over the sheer lace, I think the dress is fascinating.  She, for once, seems comfortable in a dress on the red carpet.  Is it the kind of megawatt joy that most waxed and buffed starlets project?  No, but she seems relaxed, in her dark beauty dress.

      I see everyone is concentrating on the dress and not on your hate for Kristen….. -.- Srsly, don’t like her don’t bother! 
      Think the dress could have worked better if the waist was a bit higher. It would have been more princess-like. 
      Not sure why her stylist thought this could work and look good with flashes that show everything. 
      Not a fan of this see-through trend. Out with it!

      I am in the Camp of Lo. The dress is quite nice for a fantasy movie premiere and I love the skeleton motif (nod to Schiaparelli). Although I think the dress would look much better at night than in the harsh daylight as pictured.

    • crash1212

      This awful dress manages to combine all the things I detest in gowns these days: Sheer skirt? Check. Lots of black lace? Check. Ruffles with no apparent purpose? Check. Top 2/3rds looking like the face of a vulture? Check. Perhaps this abomination has combined all these icky trends to such ill effect so as to kill all the trends at once. We can only hope. Make-up and hair are really pretty though.

    • AlieMichelle

      I really want to like it, as I dig skeleton patterns in clothes, but it is just… so ugly. I agree that the black lace is the problem, though I also hate her hair here.

    • marilyn

      I don’t know who talked her into wearing that gown, but s/he should be fired.  It does not matter if it happends to fit her, or if it works on others. The only thing that matters is that it does not work on her.  She looks like the mouse/plain girl wearing a crazy/busy two-tone lace skeleton costume.  Shades of Halloween!  That dress is horrible on all levels and it sucks the beauty right out of her.  Her skin is a pasty color, her face looks washed out and plain, her hair looks mousey and uninteresting.  That costume is WAY too much for her.  The flesh colored lace around her shoulders stands out, when it is supposed to blend into her skin.  Yikes!  Hot mess on speed!  

      The sad thing is the pain on her face. She KNOWS this one is a clunker. I think that we should all separate the girl from the dress, and say that she is beautiful, but the dress sucks the life out of her.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Uncle Tom?  Totally with you on this one.  Sorry Uncle Lo.

    • hmariec19

      Gotta go with Tom here. That dress is atrocious. She looks like she has some horrible skin affliction. However, the “spine” detail on the back is lovely.

    • beebee10

      Kudos to her for trying something so different. She appears to be someone who does not want to do the usual RC schtick and that is great. BUT as gorgeous and interesting as the varying elements of this dress are, together it is one big unflattering mess. Some angles look good, but most look like a mistake. OUT

    • Claudia Wade

      I have to say I like it. I think it is so unusual that normal standards of critique don’t even apply here. I think it is a work of art more than a garment, even.

      I think her hair and makeup are fantastic, but the dress is awful. She looks like she has no shape.

    • AthenaJ

      Believe it or not, I’m in agreement with Lorenzo (and apparently in disagreement with pretty much everyone else!). This is the first time anything about Kristen Stewart has intrigued me. She doesn’t quite have the attidute to pull this dress off, but she does have the coloring and the slightly goth look suits her. This dress could, of course, use some editing, but overall I find it really interesting.

    • ScorpQB

      I’ll start with the nice b/c I’m a Catholic girl. The top half of the back is pretty and I agree that it’s probably better in person. Otherwise it’s awful and I think her make-up looks dreadful. 

    • PeggyOC

      Tom is right. That is an ugly, ugly dress.  The spine motif is cool, but it needs a simpler setting.  Lorenzo, sorry honey, but you’re wrong.

        Love the skeleton motif.  I would love to see it incorporated into another dress.  Make up is stunning, but she can’t pull this off. 

        She looks even more a mess standing next to Goddess Theron.

    • Anathema_Device

      I’m with Tom on this one, sorry Lorenzo. Tom articulated my problems with this dress perfectly. The ruffly bit around the hips takes it from No to Hell No.

    • ErmengardeGreen

      I don’t love the dress, but on someone who brought some dark fabulosity to the party, it could be very striking. I just don’t think she’s pulling it off. She looks like a ten-year-old in a grand dame dress. I’d love to see this on Daphne Guinness, or even Angeline Jolie.

      Keep the hair and makeup.  Start again with another dress.  It reminded me of a horrible ice costume gone awry!

    • MK03

      The dress is awful, the makeup is awful, her perpetual scowl is awful, everything here is awful. Seriously, why does she always look like a kid who got dragged to Home Depot on a Saturday? If you don’t want to be a movie star, there are thousands of girls out there who would kill to be in your shoes. If doing press and premieres is soooo beneath you, give up your spot to someone who actually wants to do it.

    • Louise Bryan

      I’m with Tom.  The anatomical references of the dress are unnerving, but the patchiness of the black lace reminds me of that Charlize Theron in or out a few weeks back.

    • nannypoo

      Her makeup is nice and her hair looks cleaner than it usually does, but this dress is all kinds of hideous. And there is a vampire peeking out between the trees in the first picture, so she’d better watch out.

    • miagain

      You know, I always wonder about these movie openings… do they actually go into the theater and sit in a chair and watch the movie wearing these get ups?  ‘Cause I sure wouldn’t want to sit in a movie theater wearing this contraption.

    • Hetha Innis

      Tilda could possibly rock this, but only Tilda. It’s waaaaaaay too much dress for K-Stew. And her posture and facial expression (or lack thereof) don’t do anything to help it. I agree with Tom.

    • Isabelle Murray

      I agree with Tom. I think that the skeleton elements are cool but the black patches are awkward at best. If her posture was better, it’d help the dress a little but I think that it still wouldn’t classify it as a great dress.

    • KaileeM

      I agree with Tom! I sort of like the skeleton thing too, it’s interesting. But the black lace looks like something is growing from her armpits and belly button. And I HATE the lace on her legs. 

    • JenniferSzczublewski

      As art, it’s a beautiful piece! Stunning. As a dress actually worn out in the world, there’s something kind of vulgar about it. It gives the impression of a skeleton covered in patches of thick, black fur. …Kind of pube’ish even.

    • erinbinek

      I wouldn’t wear it, but I think it’s perfectly her: the body horror of it is the point. She’s dressed to the nines but refusing to amplify the typical assets, she’s broken up all the lines and changed the visual measure of the body. She’s being uglybeautiful. Exquisite.

      I’m with Lo. I love it. I hear the words “Kristen Stewart in Marchesa” and I wince, but this is phenomenal. Creepy black lace skull superimposed on delicate crystal skeleton? Amazing. She barely even looks annoyed to be there, which practically amounts to joyful exuberance if we grade on a curve.

      Love, love, love the back of it and the skeleton element. Not so sure anymore about the front though, but I still think Kristen is doing the best of this dress. It fits the theme and is unusual in a good way. So I’m with Lorenzo on this one.

      Funnily enough I do like it on the model, but on Kristen it looks off. I think it’s just one of those looks that doesn’t translate from the runway to reality. All that illusion netting and lace on the back is making me nauseous for some reason.

        As well as K Stew.

    • Jessica Mann Gutteridge

      Tom is 100% correct in every way.

      Possibly someone OWNING that dress could pull it off, but it isn’t Kristin Stewart, that’s for damn sure.

      And Ms. Stewart needs to learn how to stand up straight, wipe that puss off her face, and stop affecting the attitude of a bored teenager forced to attend her parents’ party.

      Horrendous and made even worse with her shitty posture.  

    • Super_Red

      I’ve gotta go with Tom, but I still love you, Daddy Lorenzo. I can appreciate some of the elements of the dress, and maybe if there were three less elements this dress would be fantastic, but it just competes with itself. The biggest problem for me is the sheer skirt. If the skirt wasn’t sheer, I think I’d give this a second look to assess my reaction as opposed to gut-instinct “ew!” 

    • Chaiaiai

      It reminds me of the hair jewelry made in the Victorian age from a dead relative.  therefore, it is OUT.  Actually, Ms. Stewart makes everything OUT for me.

    • SapphoPoet

      I think that if anyone with presence had worn this dress, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. This dress is wearing her–it’s far too much dress for her. I’d love to see Helena Bonham Carter in this dress (although it might need someone taller). Kristen Stewart just looks like she’s playing dress up. Nobody wins.

    • Joyce VG

      Oh geez. I so want to be in the will.  But i’m Team Tom.  I appreciate the argument that it is interesting and arresting but she can’t pull it off.  Like Tom said no one ever could.  I think Kristen Stewart probably loved the idea of looking like a skeleton because she is just so deep, but did she also love the idea people would laugh at her?   And think she looks like she has a full body disease?  Who knows maybe she really doesn’t care.  But this dress needs to stay on the runway, or in the back of the closet. 

    • greyhoundgirl

      I’m with Tom.  She looks like she washed up on a beach after a storm–seaweed and bones.  I could like a weird ugly-pretty that references seaweed and bones but this isn’t it.

      And– I am NOT usually one to tell someone to smile when they goddamn well don’t feel like it. I am sorry that KStew doesn’t like the publicity work and, well, fame that comes with being a famous actress. No snark intended– she’s said this in numerous interviews and I can sympathize with how much it must suck to have to deal with paparazzi and shit.

      But DAMN, she’s consistent about hating the red carpet and being glamorous.

      I’m breaking ranks and going LO here… I don’t love the way the arms look from the front but I actually am fascinated in a good way from the rest of the dress (with the darker skirt), particularly from the side and back which is beautiful. I think the simple styling makes it all the more interesting. I kind of love it too because of the rocker-chic goth wedding vibe it gives off which is perfect for K-Stew…

      Another bad see through gown. Looks like the awful one Beyonce wore. It could be a great dress if it became opaque
      at her waist where the third ‘patch’ area started. I don’t mind the top half being semi see-through, it gives drama like
      the back, but that tacky fringe at the crotch just has to be a joke, right?

    • PaulaBerman

      Tom is exactly right: the skeleton part looks cool, the black part is eye-searingly hideous.

      Tom. When I saw this the other day I instantly thought – worst. dress. of. the. year. Yep, I’m calling it in May. It’s not only terribly unflattering, it’s very cheap looking. that lace work compared to Charlize in the Dior is just embarassing for KStew. I feel sorry for her.

      I actually think the back is really cool. If the dress were otherwise plain black crepe, with this back as an inset, I think it would be dramatic and stunning. But the whole thing together is just Too Much. It’s how I feel about most Marchesa – some interesting and even beautiful elements that end up being overdesigned and overworked.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      I think this dress is insanely beautiful and belongs on display in a museum — but just looks costumy and a bit tacky on Kristen (or any real person).  Much like the “Black Belt Jones and the Noodles of Death” t-shirt I picked up in Hong Kong and have pinned to the wall in our TV room, it is meant to be seen and discussed rather than worn.

    • Jangle57

      OUT OUT OUT -that is so not her dress!  It looks airier and lighter overall on the model (still ugly but less so) but there are parts on KStew where it looks like a dense fogbank of black lace that no light can penetrate. 

    • Melanie Harrison

      The back is indeed interesting, but the patchwork makes me think of Buffalo Bill and “Silence of the Lambs” and it’s a BLACK, SEE-THROUGH, LACE SKIRT for crying out loud. I can’t believe Lorenzo let that pass without comment. So, Tom is right.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      Oh Lorenzo, really? Daddy Tom is SO right on this one. I think her makeup is fantastic though.

      The dress is interesting and statement-making and she’s pretty much pulling it off.  But my question is, does this girl ever smile? Like, ever?

      tom is right. i know i should apologize here, particularly since i should, in theory, adhere strictly to lorenzo’s ideas about things. but i could have written tom’s opinion myself, every word of it, as it is exactly what i thought. in fact, i saw this dress yesterday & i thought it all pretty much then.

      the only thing i have to add is:
      made by somebody else? sarah barton, for example? even stella mccartney. i dunno, gaultier, maybe? it wouldve been a far, far better dress. but marchesa doing skeletons is not too far from, say, michael kors doing skeletons. only he’s too clever to attempt something that far away from his ken. & she shouldnt have, either, i dont think.

       I agree with Tom…this is hideous. I didn’t like it in the runway then, and I like it even less on her. When interviewed, she looked very uncomfortable. This is just not her dress. She didn’t have the right posture.  She looked like a tomboy playing dress up in a shroud!

    • jessicasac

      I like the skeleton part, the dress has potential but, it’s the way those shapes are broken up, it doesn’t look as bad on the model.

      On top of everything else wrong with it, the black lace patches in front look like a giant psychotic clown face, if you look at it right. Which I can’t now not do.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1355527007 Rain Jezek

      The skeleton motif is definitely interesting and the element which works best, I’d love to see it in person. All together, it’s two or three interesting dresses smashed into one, and it just gives a final feeling of being over-designed. If it were just the skeleton lace-work and sleeves fading into black at the bust and then a simple black silhouette instead of all of that structure, I think it would look much more attractive. Also, the makeup is a bit much for a look where so much is already going on. Like adding a seventh exclamation point to an over-excited text message. Now it’s just excessive.

      Nope. OUT and not because it’s Kristen Stewart. She actually looks better than the model, but both of them look like their pubic and armpit hair is growing out of control and trying to eat them. Plus the skirt makes their legs look like those hideous scratchy lace tights little girls used to wear in the 80s. Kill it with fire. (But save Kristen – she’s a victim here.)

    • Noshmek

      You’re both wrong.  Just because a designer has a concept for a dress, (“Skeletons!  Lace!  Vampirical Influenza!”) doesn’t mean they should make it.  This could have used some serious editing – like not being made at all.

      I’m with Tom; the skeleton lace is cool, but the rest of the dress is irretrievably ugly.

    • littlemac8

      I agree that the skeleton references in the dress make it perfect for the Huntsman premier if only it weren’t hiddy!  Eeeek!  OUT

    • MissAnnieRN

      Team Tom. Blech. Sorry Lo.

    • demidaemon

      I’m sorry, but this dress needs to be taken out back, shot, chopped into tiny pieces, and burned.

    • littlelistmaker

      Aaaabsolutely hideous, tacky, overworked monstrosity that swallows her and her lack of personality whole.

    • Nariya

      Kristen looks like she is contemplating a quiet getaway in the last photo. I generally don’t like her put-upon expression, but in this instance, I do not blame her at all.

    • GTrain

      Hideous. The best model in the world couldn’t pull this off, never mind this mope.

    • lizajane1776

      My problem (besides that it is ugly with those patches of black breaking up the body) is that it is not anatomically correct. The sternum (the part in the front) is not striated like is illustrated here, it is solid. If something is trying to be a skeleton, then BE A SKELETON, don’t ALMOST be a skeleton.
      I wonder if it might work as art if the black were replaced with a slightly more interesting color? Navy? Red would be appropriate but too gory.

      I too LOVE the skeletal elements (Lorenzo) but hate the lace patches and the sheer skirt with a flounce? peplum? lace butt-support? 
      (Tom), so ultimately must agree with daddy T and vote her OUT, although I am sad to see my daddies fighting, make it stop! (or at least buy me a present to make me feel better :)  I also agree it is nice to see her actually putting some effort into her look, so often she just looks as if she rolled out of bed, skipped the shower, and rode the subway to whatever event she is attending.

      NO. If the two of you are going to hate trends like “black lace dresses” with such vehemence then you need to tell LO to stick to your guns about it.

    • aimee_parrott

      Usually I’m torn when I have to choose between Tom and Lorenzo.  USUALLY.  This time, though?  I think Tom needs to make an appointment for Lorenzo to see an optometrist because that dress is a crime against my eyes.  Seriously.  My eyes are suing for malpractice, and requesting punitive damages for pain and suffering.  I don’t think it looks good on the model, either, but it’s fucking ridiculous on Kristen Stewart.  She looks even more uncomfortable than she normally does, and that, as all bitter kittens know, is saying something.

      Sorry Lorenzo.  I still love you, but my eyes aren’t speaking to you.

    • Warrior89

      I think the issue is the way she poses (or the fact that she DOESNT pose). Someone please train her and then I think this would look even better! (In for me… LOVE the dress! L – I’ll sit with you if the others won’t! HAHA!) 

    • mrspeel2

      It IS pretty awful and she’s not helping with her usual slouchy posture. If only she could learn to stand tall with shoulders back, the dress might get a C- instead of an F.

    • Daenyx

      I’m with Lorenzo – I think she looks stunning!  It’s not perfect because she’s not quite confident enough to completely pull it off, but she’s got the look for it, and it’s a head-turner of a dress.  Which is kind of the point.  (I also think it’s beautiful, but I see I’m in the minority, here…)

      Oh, no, Lorenzo bunny.  I’m with Tom on this one.  This is one of the ugliest dresses I’ve ever seen.  I mean, CHARLIZE would have a tough time pulling this off, let alone everyones’ favorite little sad-sack.  Not only is it ugly, it doesn’t really fit her, it’s the wrong dress on the wrong girl, and she has a look on her face like she was beaten into it.

    • granddelusion

      It IS stunning. Just not in a good way. No one could pull this dress off. (well, i’d like to pull it off her.) It looks like a giant bug face, and that sheer bottom part is just too choppy. This is truly horrendous.

    • enid soto

    • http://www.facebook.com/stephieryan Stephanie Ryan

      sheer skirt – automatic hell no.

    • saanrio

      I really don’t like the dress at all.  I realize it is likely something where seeing it in person is much different than seeing it in photographs, but I just can’t like this at all.  The skeleton motif had a chance of being interesting, but it gets lost in the rest of the dress.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      I’m torn.  I find the back strangely beautiful, but the front is ugly and unflattering.  And that’s an awful lot of dress for a woman who can’t be bothered with standing up straight.

    • Kathleen B

      Lorenzo is right. this time.

    • http://twitter.com/KathrynTewson Kathryn Tewson

      It occurs to me, this dress would probably look much, much better on a person with much, much darker skin.  If the black lace faded into the background and the white skeleton popped in contrast, it could be KILLA.

    • Lilyana_F

      Wow, that’s one unflattering dress… both Kristen’s and the model’s legs look oddly thick

    • Corsetmaker

      Other designers have done the skeleton/anatomical motif far better. This just looks bad. The white is the most interesting part and it’s lost against all the black. And I hate the ruffles round the stomach and hips.
      Marchesa should stick to their fluffy prom dresses.

    • Leonardo Alves

      It’s interesting… but NO!

    • DesertDweller79

      Sorry, Lo.  I’m on Tom’s side.  I think it is horribly ugly.  In her defense, I think it is even uglier on the model.  But, it is terribly unflattering.  I hate all the lace groupings.  Hate the big lace patch over her lady parts.  And it is, yet again, a sheer skirt.  Which is my most hated trend in fashion.  Just one of the ugliest things I have ever seen.  Blech.

      Team Tom all the way.  The dress looks like something out of the creepy “Bodies” exhibition that was touring the country some years ago.  Hideous. And her hair and make-up aren’t helping either.  Also, you all were so right about the theme park backdrop.  I’d never fully appreciated the contribution made by a standard step and repeat backdrop until yesterday’s photos of Charlize and your comments.

    • HK4Seven

      I’m gonna throw Lo a bone.  (Pun not intended, well, maybe…)  While the cutouts in the front are beyond weird, I kinda love the back.  In fact, with a more clean, simple front and the same back, I’d kinda love this dress.  Those boob and belly ruffles are just so off putting though.

    • funkypeanut

      Ewwww. Just looking at it makes me reach for the calamine lotion.

    • vaughn75

      Hey Lorenzo,  I agree with you. First impression was I loved the romantic-gothic look as being so apporopos for her role as Snow White in this particular movie. I appreciate her willingness to take risks and experiment. Upon further reflection I decided I love the back. It’s exquisite. Also like it from the side.  I don’t think the style is particularly flattering on anyone; she has such a great figure but from the front flattens out her hips. but overall I’m sticking with my first impression. As for the stereotype she never smiles, looks miserable all the time? Hogwash. Try posting more pictures of her smiling, in better poses (there plenty of both at the premiere and for other events). I’ve met her and seen her in action at a premiere. She’s enthusiastic about her work and her fans. Doesn’t deserve the bile thrown at her in the press and by what looks like most of your readers here. Thanks. 

    • http://twitter.com/ennisamy Amy Ennis

      Love the back. Hate the rest. The idea of it is her dress, but she lacks the confidence, poise and posture to pull it off. And she still looks like she’d rather be anywhere else than here. 

    • Maddie_Faddenoid

      *Sigh*… I think it looks so much better on the model and I hate myself for thinking that. But it’s true.

      I love the way that skeletons are everywhere right now and I think this dress would be very beautiful were it not for the “crotchstache” (as another commenter coined it) and all the fuss on the front.

      Still, kudos to Kristen for trying this. If any non-model should be wearing it, it’s her.

    • alex mallard

      I agree with Tom. The only part of this dress that works is the back, which is beautiful, and conveniently you cant really tell who’s wearing it. Although someone might be able to pull it off better… like Zoe Saldana or something.

    • Kolo_Ol

      This is one of the most horrible Marchesa dresses I have seen and that’s saying a lot.

      OMG – I just saw this. I think she looks FABULOUS! Granted, I don’t follow her fashion choices on any sort of regular basis, but she’s such a tomboy – this is the first thing I’ve seen her in that makes her look ultra feminine. Plus, the skeletal accents make this a great transition piece from goth tomgirl to goth princess.

      Lorenzo’s got it on this one!  She’s actually working a couture dress, the dress, with the white skeleton beading effect combined with the black lace is quite stunning.  I’m actually stunned KS is standing up straight and looking FAB!

    • Ezmartin

      Yuk

    • CrazyFeminist

      The component parts of the dress are utterly breathtaking (in a good way) but the picture as a whole is not good at all. The hair and makeup are gorgeous but it’s too bad that she is not yet adept at holding her face beautifully for still shots. 

    • Anonymoth

      I fear Lorenzo and I might be alone in this, but…..I love it. While I fully admit that I love just about everything that contains black lace, so I am biased, this is really stunning. I also have a bit of a fetish for the macabre, so I ADORE the skeleton motif. Yes, the dress is odd and the patches of lace are oddly placed. But it seems to actually flatter her in some weird way. It seems destined to be a failure, particularly on Kristen, since she seems to pull off just about nothing…..but she’s actually pulling this off. It’s not everybody’s cup of tea. But it’s dark, it’s odd, it’s beautiful, and she looks good in it. Can’t ask for anything more.

    • Dagney

    • ThaliaMenninger

      It looks more like a terrible skin disease than a dress to me. And while I suppose some skin diseases might be beautiful in a scary sort of way, this one totally and completely isn’t. I’m with Tom all the way. One of the ugliest garments I’ve ever seen.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’m with Tom on this dress. I can see from the close-up photos that there is such very intricate work on the back, but those black lace patches just look to me as if this girl has broken out in some unfortunate fashion/skin condition.
