In or Out: Catherine Zeta-Jones in Zuhair Murad

Posted on June 11, 2012

Oh, Miss Catherine. No, dear. No.


Catherine Zeta-Jones attends premiere of “Rock of Ages” in Los Angeles in a Zuhair Murad dress paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Zuhair Murad Fall 2012 Collection

Clearly, this isn’t working for us but we’re willing to listen to a rebuttal. Here’s what we don’t love: the color, for one. Obviously, it’s meant to look like she’s naked and wrapped in flowers, but we hate that kind of dress generally. It always looks like an ice-skating costume. We also don’t love the proportions here, at least on her. It looks too high-necked, with too short a skirt and the sleeve makes it look heavy on one side. It’s just not working in any way for us. Not a bad dress, but not her dress. We suppose we could have made this a Girl, That’s Not Your Dress post, but like we said, we’re open to a rebuttal. Let’s hear it.


Vote Now!
IN! You’re completely wrong, T Lo. This rocks.


OUT! Oh, honey. Pull yourself together.


Paula Patton’s Aztec cocktail dress was voted OUT by the minions.

  • Groucho_Marks

    OUT.  Me Tarzan, you Goth Jane.

    • Judih1

      I agree. Plus she is too old for this dress. Add the other sleeve and give it to a fanning sister

      •  I wouldn’t give to have a face like that and she’s ruining

  • Deedles

    Who is this woman??? Am I alone in thinking she looks NOTHING like CZJ??? LEAVE YOUR FACE ALONE, LADY!

    • Thank you!!  Leave it alone indeed.  And stop dressing like a figure skater.  OUT

      • schadenfreudelicious

        she gets a 3.5 from the Canadian judge……

        • LilyPad

          Yep, total figure skater. She’s too classy for this one I think. 

    • TheOriginalLulu

      Honestly. What I wouldn’t give to have a face like that and she’s ruining it. *cries* 

    • ballerinawithagun

      I couldn’t believe it was her. Out!

    • Knightley

       Thank you!  I was wondering if it was just me…  She definitely looks like she’s trying too hard. 

      • AudreysMom

         sigh. I have to agree. I was at first impressed by how incredible her body looks and understood her reason to flaunt it, but this is just a tad desperate. Surely there’s something in Salma Hayek’s closet she could borrow.

    •  You are not alone sweetheart. You are not alone.

    • ErinnF

      I didn’t even recognize her. Seriously, I’m stunned. Wow. WHAT DID SHE DO TO HER FACE??

    • Mary_Shelley

      You are so right, Deedles.  She has that “I look like everyone who’s gone under the knife in Hollywood” look.  What a shame.

    • Chickadeep

      She used to be genuinely stunning, and now it looks like some unholy, Botox-saturated hybrid of Teri Hatcher and Leann Rimes snatched Sophia Vergara’s wig and raided Melanie Griffith’s closet, to predictably underwhelming effect.

      • lordandtaylor

        I think he looks like the current version of Victorial Principle. How you seen her latest info-mercial. SCARY INDEED.

    •  I honestly would have had no idea this was her had I not been told. Unreal.

    • dharmabum8

      Completely unrecognizable. Why, Cat, WHY.

    • blogless

      You know, I think she looks pretty natural. I mean she’s had Botox (who hasn’t) and she may have had some filler – but I don’t think she looks that different, just older. I think she looks beautiful. (But OUT because of that dress.)

    • She’s got a serious case of facelift face.

    • David Kresner

      First thing I thought too. No you’re not alone. She was someone who I thought would age beautifully. Now we’ll never know.

  • ChiliP

    She’s a beauty, but this is bad. Out.

  • HeatherMcIlrath

    this is too wrong…it looks so 1980s/90’s, with all the cheap looking lace and big hair. the shoes are all kinds of wrong for the look…essentially it just looks tired, not modern or exciting.

  • Out.  Completely wrong for her – makes her look blocky, and she certainly is not.

  • kjthorp

    OUT! When will this trend end???

  • blogless

    OUT. Oh gosh. It looks like it was washed and dried on the wrong settings.

    I still think she is a beautiful woman.

  • Sobaika

    It would be fine if CZJ had either worn this ten years ago or had some length added to the hem. As it is, everything just a bit wrong.

  • janedonuts

    That whole movie and every single thing associated with it looks like a giant embarrassment. This dress included. 

    • NC_Meg

      Totally agree. The commercials (especially the ones that include Tom Cruise) make me cringe with second hand embarrassment.

    • Ooh, is she in it? Poor thing. 

  • BazoDee

    OUT. Waaaaaaay too short and I generally loathe one sleeved (as opposed to one shoulder) dresses. The blah color doesn’t help. It is a pity -her hair and make-up are flawless as always. 

  • Mary Baumer

    what happened to her face?

    •  Looks like some ‘freshening up” has happened. 

      • GorgeousThings

        And badly done. Very 5th Avenue matron.

        • Sing4yursupper

          She is looking rather old lately.

        •  I was told by one who knows, that after work, you should look no more than healthy and rested.

    • kimmeister

      I definitely see an eyelid lift.

  • AliciaChamisa

    Skirt too short, hair too long. 

  • Train wreck. OUT in a very large way. Too short, too pale, too wierd, too ice skating costume, too ugly, I can’t stop myself. Just no.
    And she needs to lose about 6 inches off her hair.

    • Flooby

      Oh I think her hair in the back is the ONLY great thing she’s got going for her.  It’s really wonderful and shiny and healthy looking.  If she’d had more height at the crown I’d say her hairdo at least was an IN.  

  •  Out to the most far flung of OUTNESS.  Can you say, “Girl You Are Trying Too Hard”?  Mkay, we get that you’re gorgeous, and have a slammin’ hot bod.  We’ll take it as a given.  Now would you please not dress like a dance extra from a bad 50’s musical?

    • Chickadeep

      We need a “Girl, You Are Trying Too Hard” category, for those occasions when “Girl, That’s Not Your Dress” isn’t quite right.

      •  Of course Lea Michelle, and Fergie will be grandmothered in as lifetime achievement winners.

  • Bleh. The illusion netting is too pale for her and its color looks somewhat geriatric. And I agree, she doesn’t look like Catherine Zeta-Jones. OUT !

  • mjude

    no,no & no….OUT

  • PeggyOC

    Out.  Ice dancing evil queen.

  • OUT! Honey, you’re not J-Lo. And I don’t know if even J-Lo could make this dress work.

  • OUT.  Give it to Zoe Saldana.  If she can werq sheer crotch curtains, I’m sure she can do something with this.

  • MK03

    The dress is fine. However, “No, honey, no” still applies to appearing in this godawful movie.

  • No.


  • Bree The Vole

    The dress is OUT but holy hell, Catherine is totally IN.

  • TheLaurenJean

    Oh, I hate to say it, but she’s too old for this sort of dress. It’s the sort of dress I’d love to see Dakota Fanning try, but just no on Mrs. Zeta-Jones. It really is painful to say it, but Out.

  • amf0001

    in the photo where she is looking over her shoulder, she looks like herself,  but in the first few photos I really would not have recognised her,  the work she’s had done has completely changed her round her eyes.
    Her hair and make up are fab but that dress is old and it makes her look oddly old too…  Completely out!

  • I don’t like the one long sleeve look. It just feel unbalanced. I just always imagine some crazy weird accident happened and somehow that arm of the dress was ripped off…it helps me cope. I don’t hate the dress overall, I mean it is certainly not amazing but she doesn’t necessarily look bad in it. Honestly though, it just needs another sleeve. Yay continuity and balance!

    Love her shoes though (:

  • Lizzyisi

    It’s too short and too lopsided. She needed an updo with the dress and a pair of shoes that don’t scream “ballroom dance competition on your local PBS station”. Otherwise, the “naked wrapped in flowers” thing isn’t such a bad look for her.

  • petalfrog

    It’s awful. The color makes her look washed out and not like the lovely olive tone I believe she is. Also, it’s too short, and she looks old, not sexy.

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. There is nothing to rebutt. You nailed it. This isn’t her dress.

  • jw_ny

    OUT..should have been a “girl that’s not your dress” post. 

    Just goes to prove that even the most beautiful women in the world can’t wear everything and still look good.

  • I can tell I’ve been reading you guys for a long while now and can nearly predict the verbiage below the picture.  I’m in complete agreement with you on every single detail.  She’s also a little too old to carry off a skimpy item like this.  Honestly, woman, you’re not 25 anymore. 

  • SapphoPoet

    I don’t think I would have recognized her without the caption. She doesn’t look like herself at all. Oh, and the dress is terrible. OUT.

  • kelsita421


  • Out. This isn’t her. She rocks a jewel tone, a plunging neckline, a real gown. This is as wrong-headed as some of Christina Hendricks’s choices.

    • Yes!  I want to take her by the shoulders and say, “Lady, you are CATHERINE ZETA M-FING JONES. Now go put on a proper color!”  *sigh*  (Ditto on the “out,” just for the record.)

  • littlemac8

    OUT – Hate the dress with a burning passion.  Wish that CZ would age gracefully – this dress is too short and too young for her.

  • elleg929

    What happened to her face????

    • Age.  That’s what happens.  Maybe Michael Douglas being is rubbing off on her … oh haaaay there, lol.

      • elleg929

        Oh that’s not age…that’s really bad filler/plastic surgery. 

        • Qitkat

          Who knows who she used, but it just goes to show a bucket of money doesn’t buy quality.

  • hughman


    •  Triple, quadruple, a thousand times LIKE.

  • OUT. So out. What did she do to her face???

  • melanie0866

    IN.  But the geometric shoes are fighting the floral pattern on the dress.

  • LuisaNL

    this is a big fat OUT! It’s just… wrong for her. She’s usually so classy but this is just short and tacky. The shoes are awful, too.

  • OUT. I thought it as soon as I saw it.  No hunny, just no.

  • Joan Collins’ legs look GREAT for her age!  It’s not often you see an octogenarian make such daring fashion choices!

  • tallgirl1204

    It’s for the Rock of Ages red carpet.  One must consider context.  So I give it an “in” only for that. 

    Otherwise, I don’t like the nude-but-not-quite look of the beige.  

  • CozyCat

    This is Kristen Stewart’s dress.

    •  I think it’s too fussy and feminine for Kristen Stewart, although the length is typical for her.

    • Yes! That is exactly who I was thinking of. 

  • teensmom99

    too short!  I actually think the neck and the flowers up there look good–as TLo suggested, in a different color perhaps–but only the neckline–below you’ve called it as the disaster it is.

  • Judy_J

    I’m in total agreement with you two.  OUT.  This dress makes her look shapeless and frumpy; I don’t think that is the effect she was going for.

  • AlexisPayne

    Eeek, no!

  • msftmargarita

    Out. I hope the “naked” trend dies soon

  • Beardslee

    out out out
    sorry to see her looking so desperate

  • Bozhi

    Out.  That is one ugly dress.

  • Jangle57

    I can’t believe you would even make this an In or Out selection as it clearly so way way OUT as to be in another stratosphere……

  • CZJ still looks amazing, however it appears that she needs a makeunder. She used to have such an elegant but sexy look. Too much hair, too much makeup (especially the gloppy mascara), too little color and too little dress. I know she’s had some diificult times recently and I’m rooting that she gets her mojo back!

  • Did she coat her body in glue and roll around on the floor, picking up shed skin and party favors? Because that kind of effort should be applauded. Otherwise, OUT.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    She is giving Jessica Castain the running for most tragic use of illusion netting. OUT.

  • charlotte

    If your first thought is “Oh my God, what happened?”, this must be an OUT.

  • golspie

    She’s had work done to her face. Sloppy, amateurish work.

  • Kyle Crawford

    I saw this the other day.. I think the problem is that the ” flesh” fabric, what ever it is, is too heavy.. wrinkly… I do think it is a good on paper dress.

  • Erin Fleming

    I thought she rocked the dress… until you called it an ice skating costume and now I can’t even look at it. Unfortunately her hiatus from mortal vision included plastic surgery that removed what was special about her beauty. Now she just looks like every brunette actress.

  • Elizabetta1022

    In those last few pictures she looks like Marie Osmond. Just weird. Recently, my best friend’s cousin had some work done. She was a beautiful, natural woman and now she looks like a clone of one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. So sad!

    • Elizabetta1022

      And OUT, by the way. Definitely not the dress for her. 

  • crash1212

    There is no rebuttal. This is OUT for all the reasons you state. I would add that it’s WAY too short on her…and further, I don’t think this is anybody’s dress…not in this color and not with that neckline and sleeve combo.

    • Exactly. There’s no more that needs to be said. I think it’s best we move on.

  • MilaXX

    Ugly dress, Not her dress and too young for her. OUT

  • She’s obviously been to the same terrible plastic surgeon that both Kirk and Michael Douglas frequent.

    And when will lady stars realised that wrinkly baggy naked dresses just make you look like you have wrinkly baggy skin?

    About as OUT as it is possible to be (though she’s high on my irrational hatred list, so I am not an unbiased observer).

  • no.  no no no.
    she’s gorgeous, but needs to dress age appropriately.
    this is meant for a teeny-bopper-ish type.
    don’t flame me. you know it’s true.

  • Ow, my eyes. Just…actually I don’t even like it that much on the model.


  • Girlfriend needs to go sit down with that dress.  

  • j_anson

    Out, out.

  • O to the UT

  • clairellis

    Out. Do not love the color.

    • Or the lack of color!

  • OUT–all i could see was “ice skating costume.”  will she go for the triple toe loop or the lutz?

  • jmorino08

    I am too distracted by how that face looks nothing like the original face of CZJ. But if you put a gun to my head I’d have to give it a big no, too. It’s oddly both too young-looking and too old-looking for her and the color is really unflattering to her skin tone.

  • I KNOW her skin tone is lovely normally. I know because I’ve seen her in OTHER photographs. But did she make herself up to look sickly? Or is it just that the awful color of that dress is making her look sick?

  • out. no, no,no.

  • bailey debruynkops

    o u t

  • joe_tey83

    Poison Ivy from Batman would love this dress.

    • So that’s an ‘out,’ right?

    • I was wondering why she was wearing Poison Ivy’s dress.

  • guestela

    clear out.

  • demidaemon

    OUT, Sadly, too much trollop here.

    • carolynmo

      Perfectly said. Yikes.

  • There’s no good that can come of this dress on anyone, over 30 or otherwise. 

  • This is no one’s dress.

  • Mexxoo

    Is she auditioning for a re-make of Showgirls?  OUT!

  • janetjb


    She has a great body, but she needs to stop trying so hard.

  • lifetime_student

    Usually scroll-down fugly doesn’t get fugly until at least the waist. When it starts at the neck you know you have a ginormous problem. At the first pic I held out hope that some fiend had photoshopped Catherine’s gorgeous head onto the body of some tacky starlet, but subsequent pics killed that dream.

  • Out. No, no, no. Ice skating costume is the first thing I thought of when I saw the pic. 

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    OUT.  Good lord, that woman has had too much stuff injected into her forehead and around her mouth.  She can barely smile anymore!  And the dress is just too young for her, despite her killer body and great legs.  I like her shoes, though.

  • she’s trying so hard, and seems happy to be out of the house again, which is why it’s too bad that we have to give her an out.

  • surfergirl70

    Awful.  Absolutely awful.  She’s a gorgeous, accomplished woman, and she’s dressed like a 20-year-old D-list nobody.  OUT.

  • altalinda

    Ick, out.

  • dickylarue

    Anyone else hear the theme from Ice Castles playing? Watch out for the roses Catherine! For the love of God, help her off the ice Robbie Benson! 

  • GorgeousThings

    Cathy, that is not your dress. Set it free and let Johnny Weir have it. He’ll put it to good use in his next ice show.

    And the makeup/hair combination is doing her no favors. She’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, but that whole look adds 15 years to her.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    give susan lucci back her face!

  • cmb92191

    Are you sure it isn’t Jaclyn Smith?  CZJ doesn’t look like herself.    Either way,  it is not her dress

  • How the mighty fall. She use to be a natural and stunning beauty like what? five years ago? what happened? surgery? some botched procedure? smh and what about her career? lawd ham mercy. I cannot, I will and I definitely shall not. 

  • Jennifer Coleman

    VERY ice skatery. Or she was in one of those girl fights where the other girl rips off part of her skirt.


  • TieDye64

    Nothing good to see here. OUT. 

  • RedRaven617

    Ugh. Out.

  • Lina_bee

    Out. The dress doesn’t suit her. There are more flattering dresses with which to show off your awesome legs.  Re her face: I didn’t recognize her either, but she’s been out of the public eye for a good four years or so now, and the last appearance I remember she was plastered in pancake makeup. She looks her age, which is rare enough in Hollywood, but I do wonder what work she may have had done.

    • Qitkat

      I think she looks older than 42, but she has had a very challenging set of circumstances that would age anyone. I just wish the work weren’t so heavy-handed, as she has always been quite beautiful.

      This is starting to look like a landslide out, too bad, but it’s not anyone’s dress. Maybe since, as you said, she’s been mostly out of the public eye, she really wanted to be noticed and feel pretty, and hot. Understandable.

      • Lina_bee

        Well, yes, nothing ages a woman like raising kids and caregiving for people with chronic serious ailments. She’s still beautiful, and people will get used to what she looks like now if only she keeps stepping out for the cameras.

  • kirkyo

    This would be ok if it was from her own JC Penny’s line or something like that. You know where you have to pretend you look hot in something cheap that you supposedly designed.

    The little bits of lace hanging off the bottom makes me sad.

  • GTrain

    Way OUT. And enough with the surgery.

  • No rebuttal here. This is a mess. A warm, moist, mold-covered mess.

  • aimee_parrott

    OUT.  The proportions are weird, the color’s all wrong, and I loathe the shoes.

  • MzzPants

    Waaayyyy out of her wheelhouse.  OUT.

  • AWS

    From the front angle, her face looks like Jennifer Grey after her nose job.  Strange.

    Poorly stitched dress.  Unflattering. 


  • Funkykatt

    This movie looks like complete garbage but I like the various wigs, I will have to see it 

  • kikisayshi

    OUT. If it was any other color (all ONE color) I would like it. Maybe a jewel tone to compliment her fair skin and dark hair. But this: no.

  • KathKo

    Okay, that… Thing needs to be burned. like, right now.
    … And I don’t necessarely means Catherine, there ;p.

  • judybrowni

    The “nude” effect of the dress is lost when it doesn’t match her skin tone, for one.

    But, basically, this dress is bipolar-off-medication, in fabric.

    It’s not successful plastic surgery, in my opinion, if she now only looks like Catherine Zeta Jones from certain angles.

  • call_me_schmeg

    girl, that is kim kardashian’s dress and on her, it would still be OUT.

  • kimmeister

    I actually don’t hate the dress, but the wonky T-straps on her shoes are driving me nuts!

  • ZnSD

    ugh! Oh! kill it with fire! the dress I mean.

  • Sara__B

    Out. One of the world’s most beautiful women should NOT look desperate for attention. (And as others have already asked, what has she done to her face? Such a shame.)

  • belfebe

    Girl, that is not your dress.  Ship it to JLo who will work the crap out of it.

  • lordandtaylor

    Looks like Stars on Ice (presented by Smuckers) is coming to town early this year.
    Dress your age. Some young stalet from high school musical could carry it off. But this soccer mom cannot. It is bordering on just looking sad on her. Or comical. You choose.

  • MarissaLG

    OUT. The color isn’t right for her, and even if it was  I’m not sure this dress would work- it doesn’t fit!! 

  • Candigirl1968

    This is a Jessica Chastain sort of mistake.  CZJ knows better.

  • marilyn

    Out.  She is beautiful, but this dress sucks the color out of her skin.  I can understand why she wore this, since the movie being premiered is an edgy rock-type movie.  But………the color is wrong, so it makes ALL OF HER look pasty-colored.  As you said, it is very costume-y.  She is a gorgeous woman and should always wear important clothes.  This is a costume.  It is beneath her.

  • NO ONE can wear a dress that looks like mildew run amok.

  • aeg66

    That dress may work when you’re doing triple axles but not red carpets at your age darling.

  • Dhammadina

    Black ivy is attacking her neck! No no no. 
    The dress kind of suits the model who looks 15 years younger and in symbiosis with the plant. 

  • dramamajor

    Give it to JLo

  • Did she do something to her face? she looks different.

  • RebeccaKW

    Sorry, no, this is not her dress.  It’s definitely a Heidi dress.  I’d like to see on Zoe Saldana, though.  

  • rumcg66

    OUT. On anyone, in my opinion. I despise the one sleeve look in general but I think this one is particularly horrible.

  • Oh my god. Out.

  • Allison Woods

    Hate the dress.

    Can’t place the face–but that’s not CZJ.

  • Sunshine16

    Out, trying so darn hard to look young.  Actually, she’s been dressing so dowdy lately, you’d think I would welcome this.  But no, it’s an OUT

  • Aurumgirl

    Hardly appropriate for the Queen of Wales.  

  • ccm800

    out -half assed execution

  • Louise Bryan

    OUT.  That’s not her dress.  Perhaps some skinny ingenue?

  • out!!!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I just think she could have done so much better-this looks as if she’s trying a tad too hard to hang on to her youth.

  • Nonnah

    She looks beautiful, but the dress is Out!

  • SO out. That is not a flattering dress, and probably wouldn’t be on anybody.

  • LittleKarnak

    Are we sure that’s CZJ??? Something just looks….off….about her face….

    • AnaRoW

       I was just about to ask the exact same thing. Something’s way off.

  • EEKstl

    OUT.  Both sides needed to be sleeveless and it needed to be a bit longer for serious IN consideration.  Also, it’s so wrong that one of the world’s most beautiful women is succumbing to Refreshment.  And not in a good way.

  • Qitkat

    ooh, out.
    Agreed w/other BK’s- did not recognize her. Pity.

  • Call me Bee

    Oh yikes!  This is no one’s dress, and Ms Z-JD should have stuck with her usual, more elegant look.  Trying to go so “edgy” at her age is not pretty.  OUT.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Oh Cathy, no. Unless you’re aiming to win gold for Mother Russia in ice dance, this is not your dress.

    Also, you’re a beautiful woman, please ease up on the botox so your forehead unfreezes.  

    Great hair, though, but not enough to save this from being an OUT.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    i think her bio takes ten years off her age. i’ve always thought that. this dress adds them back on, & then some.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    This is an Igor dress, if Igor were a girl, or if he had a taste for frocks. This would be perfect to ring Dr. Frankenstein’s bell in, and we would all say how brave and strong it was of Igor to decide that his hump was a feature he wanted to emphasize rather than hide away.

  • Horrid dress and would be on anyone over 90 pounds. Extra points deducted for Reptilian Botox Face.

  • Girl that is not your face! What has happened? Oh! the dress is an out.

  • Truly, I think that Johnny Weir is the only person alive who could pull this off. Out.

  • Twinzilla

    That is not her dress, but I’m glad to see her out and about.  The Welsh and Depression go hand in hand, and I hope she is doing well.

  • cleep1000

    OUT.OUT.OUT. She looks top-heavy and desperate.

  • elzatelzabelz

    OUT- Weird proportions, the look is very “I’m trying desperately to look younger than I am, which I don’t need to do since I’m still pretty stellar looking.”

  • No. Just no.

  • Eva_baby

    Out.  She’s got a great figure but that dress feels too young for her.  And it matches her skin.

  • OUT. Ice-skating dress.

  • Out. It’s just Not Her Dress – but I might like it on someone else. I like the style overall. I would have liked it better in a different color of nude. And I think the black is too heavy. But mostly, I think it makes her look old. She’s not a whispy-sylph like creature, and this dress emphasizes that fact.

  • phrenk

    Blergh, OUT.

  • Susan Crawford

    No to the dress. Just a really wrong choice in every way.

  • alyce1213

    Horrible dress.
    Botoxed face.
    CZJ where are you?

  • Charmella

    Desperate…and O-U-T!

  • CassieLee22

    nooooooooooo OUT

  • another_laura

    Out, oh my dear lords in heaven, OUT.  She should never wear anything other than jewel tones….  gaaaaaaah!

  • another_laura

    Geez, kittens, do we need to pile on so much about cosmetic work?  It’s a fact of life for 99% of actors, yes, even the gorgeous ones.  

    • alyce1213

      Cosmetic work is fair game, ESPECIALLY for the gorgeous ones whose faces become unrecognizable.  Bad clothes you can change; you ruin a face, you ruin a career.  I think it should be loudly and frequently discouraged.

  • plinkiedoodle

    OUT!  A figure skater who won’t leave her face alone…You were lovely before you went and messed it all up. 

  • PaulaBerman

    It’s out, and why don’t I even recognize her? She doesn’t look like herself anymore.

  • berkeleygirl

    HORRIBLE!!! Also, I refuse to believe she’s only 42.

  • quiltrx

    OUT.  It’s a hair too formal to be sexy/rocker, and way too slutty to be elegant.  And the color is just off-putting.

    And what has she done to herself???  The only shot where this actually appears to be CZJ is the one over her shoulder.  The rest appear to be Jaclyn Smith…who is fabulous, but is not CZJ.

  • Catherine looks OK in it but it is OUT – bad design.

  • MissMariRose


  • formerlyAnon

    Oh, what a soft ball you’re throwing us.

    OUT. It’s not only a questionable dress on its own, it’s dreadfully unflattering on her.

  • JCornforth

    Wrong color for her & way too short.

  • guest2visits

    The one sleeve made the dress tacky for me. It’s probably a couple of inches too short for Catherine also.
    The dress looks like a strange shade of grey, not nude.

  • PeaceBang

    This was a stab in the heart. The stunning CZJ in a tacky Wilma skating dress cut up the *there* — are you KIDDING me? She of the regal bearing and ability to werq an evening gown like no one’s business? With that bizarre reconstruction of her bone structure? Oh, sad sad sad I has a BIG sad. Is her plastic surgeon trying to turn her into Angie Harmon or something? Also, no way that lady is 42. She’s 50 if she’s a day. 

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    No No No, CZJ!  OUT!!!

  • AllegraS

    ouch! age complete “diss” appropriate. So she has legs – most of us do too – and a bit too much of them are showing. You are right, the proportions are all wrong and the dress is wearing her. 

  • aristida_girl

    Out, no way girl…

  • What happened to her face??? She doesn’t look like herself anymore. So sad when they succumb to surgery. 🙁

  • Truly_Outrageous

    This look says “I still got it folks” but not in a really good way. I have to say OUT.  

  • RzYoung

    Hmm, I don’t like it but I can’t deny that she looks incredible. IN I guess

  • Cousin_Rose

    Forget the dress, what has she done to her face? 

  • Judy_S

    OUT. Hideous dress.

  • Scarlet39

    OUT.  It’s just simply an ugly dress.

  • this is a case of invasion of the body snatchers. run. RUN!

  • Sweetvegan

    Out – the too-long sleeve kills it.

  • Looks like Poison Ivy’s night gown with the twiney viney thing going on

  • up with pod people

    I am giving her an In because SHE looks so radiant and happy — clearly she loves the dress and loves how she looks, and since it doesn’t vex me one way or the other, she and her amazing fucking hair and glowing skin get the thumbs up.

    • nancylee61

      I think she looks haggard. Look at that third picture of her. She looks tired. And just like I just noted about Charlize Theron, smoking has taken its toll on her face.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    OooooNooooo!!!!!! What is with these creepy crawly vine covered dresses all of a sudden. I thought the transparent lace fad was bad but these are SO MUCH WORSE!
    Beyond OUT is OUT-est?

  • StrandedFashionista

    O to the U to the T. 

  • No. No, no, no, no, no. OUT. Ms. Zeta-Jones, you know better than this.

  • yulaffin

    How blah, how boring.  Girl needs color in her clothes.

  • drdarke

    So – Catherine Zeta-Jones is Matron on the Top, Fredrick’s of Hollywood on the Bottom?

    WTF, girl? Did Alexa Chung dress you?

    No, b/c unlike her, at least your hair is combed….

  • mznormann

    Oh so OUT.

  • Caaro3

    Has there ever been a unanimous “OUT”, TLo?  If not, CZJ may make history!

  • CatherineRhodes


    Did she do something to her face? She doesn’t look like herself.

  • OUT. Has she had work done, as an aside? She’s almost unrecognizable in these photos. She’s much better suited to that Grace Kelly bombshell look methinks. 

  • OUT! Bitch is too old for this look, world-class rack or not. Today I’m channeling truck driver apparently.

  • That’s a lot of hair, and the dress looks wrinkly.  Out.

  • definitely not her dress.  it’s JLo’s

  • rissa42210

    Oh no, grrl.  Out.

  • agree with Brittany a few comments down: a more ladylike look suits her better. This smells of desperation and not knowing who she is. Why the plastics? Why the mini? You used to dress like classy lady. 

  • Kristy Evans

    OUT. Give that dress to Charlize.
