WERQ: Kyra Sedgwick on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’

Posted on July 19, 2012

Kyra Sedgwick lands on a NYC sidewalk like a bolt of lightning.


Kyra Sedgwick stops to pose for photographers as she makes her way into the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ in New York City in a red dress paired with a Lorraine Schwartz snake ring and an OFIRA ring and bangles.

We don’t love the hair or even the shoes, but girl, you are WERQing that red dress like Daddy Warbucks just walked into the room on the day your rent is due.

Snaps of RESPECT, girl.

    Never knew she was such a lean machine.  IN!

    • MoHub

       Looks unhealthily thin to me.

    • She looks DAYM good and she knows it….cue LMFAO! 
      (PS Any fug sisters on here??  -there’s that Letterman dumpster!..AmazingWayOnlineCash.blogspot.com

    • I was just thinking that – either she’s really been working out or the dresses she usually chooses do NOT do her figure justice!

      • alicetiara

         I saw her on the street in NYC a few months back. Girl is TINY and was dressed super cool (jeans, boots, leather jacket). Clearly upped her game lately.

  • Props, Gurl. You look hotter than NYC pavement in July.

  • She is just great! She oozes charm! 

  • tween00

    She looks amazing! 

    Should I adjust my laptop somehow, because that dress looks totally orange to me. 

    • kimmeister

      Looks completely orange to me too.  I can’t pull off orange but dang if it doesn’t look good on blonde white women!

    • MilaXX

      I’d say sort of an orangey red

    • tereliz

      It’s a tomato red

    • ballerinawithagun

      My husband and I always disagree on what is orange or red. 

      • Are we the same person? I regularly have that conversation with my husband!

      • janetjb

        At my house it’s blues and greens.

  • BazoDee

    WERQ it GF-3 snaps in Z formation! I don’t even mind the shoes. She looks DAYM good and she knows it….cue LMFAO! 
    (PS Any fug sisters on here??  -there’s that Letterman dumpster!!)

    • There it is!!!!

    • MilaXX

       You’d think Dave would move it since the stage door is so close by. I feel bad for all these celebs having to pose with that as the backdrop.

      • Introspective

        Oh Letterman knows about it. But just doesnt care. Or maybe by now the dumpster’s a member of the family. so its not going anywhere…

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    She looks great – no doubt. 
    I’m adding her to the list (along with Jada Pinkett Smith, Angie Harmon…. and maybe Clint Eastwood) of “looks that could kill”.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Seriously. I wonder how many hours at the gym she puts in a day to look like that. WERQ! 

    • MoHub

       Considerably more than she put in at the dinner table, I’ll bet!

  • Judy_J

    Wow….that dress is perfection on her!  Va va VOOM!!!!

  • Sobaika

    Hot mama! Kevin Bacon is a lucky guy.

  • kikisayshi

    “girl, you are WERQing that red dress like Daddy Warbucks just walked into the room on the day your rent is due!” TLO, you are the best!

  • Sexy sexy lady. You work it and then go home and grabass some Bacon!

    • TonyGo

       Bacon and Tomato!

  • Girl needs a cheeseburger

    • julnyes

       Wow – I couldn’t disagree more! She looks amazingly fit and healthy. She has the body of someone who works out, not someone who starved themselves to get there in my opinion.

    • Ali

       As I said on the Cathy Cambridge thread, can we stop with comments like this? It’s really offensive.

  • mjude

    i dont watch her tv show but i like her.  many snaps for not wearing velvet or anything late fall related

  • Damn, girl! And I actually like her hair.

  • Larkin21

    Agree on the shoes but I do like the hair. She looks amazing! What I’d do for a body like that…

    • Norm Deplume

      Funny, I don’t like the hair, but I’m not mad at the shoes with that dress. I don’t normally love nude shoes, but with as long as that dress is, a more noticeable shoe would make it look awkward.

      • Agree on both points.

        Has Hollywood recently passed a law banning more than two accessories per pole dancer per photo op?

      • Larkin21

        Didn’t need to be a flashy shoe. A navy pump or a gold sandal would be my preference. But I do see what you’re saying with the length of the dress.

  • I guess I never knew that stars arrived at these shows already “done.”  It makes sense that they would — the show probably doesn’t have a budget for people to do the guests’ hair and makeup.  And if the show is actually taping in the middle of the day, she’s not going to want to be photographed getting out of her car in sweats without her hair and makeup done.

    • BazoDee

      Actually many have an arrival outfit/look and a different one for the show. 

      • MilaXX

        but they bring their own people and Kyra doesn’t strike me as the type to travel with hair & makeup.

        • BazoDee

          I would agree. I’m sure that’s how she appeared on the show. 

          • crash1212

             Watched it and that’s exactly how she appeared. I saw a pic of her arriving and wondered if she’d wear the same thing on the show…and she did. Seems so much easier to do that. I can’t imagine having to change my clothes all the time…seems like it would be such a pain. Kyra – she’s just like us! Well…almost!

  • Imasewsure

    She has got to do something with that fright wig of a hairdo but overall she looks great… simple, comfortable and chic

    • MilaXX

       I’d love to see here in a slicker ‘do, but I doubt she’ll ever give up the big hair.

    • Spicytomato1

      I’m with you on her hair. I’m not against curls but here it looks oddly unnatural and wig-like.

      • mulvpeg

        totally looks like a wig and her face is getting a little too botox-y for my taste. she looks like a barbie head from the shoulders up.

  • SpcilK

    BOOM! Mama’s got body for days!

  • afabulous50

    I LOVE her….SO sad The Closer is ending…

  • Lilithcat

    I can’t give her a WERQ when it isn’t one head to toe.  But in between, she’s a knock-out.

    By the way:  Kyra Sedgwick lands on a NYC sidewalk  .  .  .  is maybe not the best phrase to use following your Dallas recap.

  • Judy_S

    She looks good. I’m actually not sure about the dress but the dress + the smile wins.

  • hughman

    “Let’s Have A Ky-Ky”

  • WOW. I actually said that out loud when I scrolled down. She looks amazing!

  • sweet_potato


  • She looks fabulous!!

  • MilaXX

    I think she looks great. I don’t even mind the shoe here because for once it’s not a platform pump.

  • Introspective

    Im way younger than her and havent been able to wear that skintight of a dress in years. I say DAYUM GIRL!!! Werq that sex on a stick look!

  • I hope I look half as good when I am 46. 😐

  • Damn, Kyra! WERQ indeed, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look this good. Love the bangle, too.

  • elirt

    I actually love the hair, but agree on the shoes – could have used some contrast, not a shoe that fades away and matches her skin.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    And she was so – NORMAL in her interview.  Funny, gracious, down to earth.  And omg she looks amazing.  Her neck shows her age but certainly nothing else does.

  • teensmom99

    It’s my day to disagree (never have before but this is my 2nd time today)–hair and shoes so bad that it’s not a WERQ.  And I think the dress is kind of pedestrian/officey and maybe even kind of hot to wear.

  • imakeart

    Most starlets save their best looks for Letterman.  I saw her on the show and thought she looked quite fab.  Glad you featured her here, so I could get a better look at the dress.  

  • plinkiedoodle


  • Adriana_Paula

    I actually love the shoes: such a delicate shape, and they let the dress shine.

  • marilyn

    The dressis too tight.  The hair is too retro-messy (whatever era that was). She is also getting too old to wear a faux Farrah-do.   She may think she is hot, but I think not.  At least she isn’t posing in front of the dumpster.

  • Woman has always had a killer bod. And is doing the natural aging thing like a CHAMP. 

  • melanie0866

    LOVE HER.  Love The Closer.  Go, Kyra!


    I want to say that I hate it and that she looks like a god damn tramp, but….she just looks so hot! Damn it, I kind of love it.

  • nannypoo

    She is so hot that she makes a too-tight dress and messy hair look good. 

  • Amy Ellinger

    i want her to be my cool aunt from California.

  • Jill Roberts

    With shorter hair she would be the fiercest bitch in ANY room.  She already is in most rooms.

  • meridian5

    How are her and Kevin doing because that look just screams “I’m single again!” IN!

  • Warrior89

    Love her body…fit and gorgeous.

  • I think her hair looks great. She has extremely curly hair, and as a girl with mildly curly hair, I can attest to hard it is to look natural without looking disheveled. She clearly likes wearing as natural as possible, and I think her stylist does a great job of making it look natural but fixed.

    • AnaRoW

      It’s don’t mind its being disheveled. It’s just that it looks like a sloppy wig here.

  • guest2visits

    Gorgeous – head to toe.  Also I can’t help it; I love seeing the street scenes in these pics.

  • granddelusion

    I hate her hair so much.

  • quiltrx

    She looks fantastic.  And I see our friend the dumpster!

  • I think the shoes are acceptable, in that they don’t make her look like she has hooves for feet. Very classic shape in a sad color.  Dress and body are slammin’!

  • Kirsten Kirsten

    This is like the LA version of the “chic and sophisticated Manhattanite” dress Kristin Davis is wearing in yesterday’s post. Fabulous!

  • LambeeBaby

    Smokin’ hot Kyra! You show those Hollywood underlings how to WERQ!

  • glennethph

    Killer dress.  I’ve always liked her ever since I watched her in Something to Talk About and heard Kevin Bacon’s story about how star homes tour buses would pass by their house every day and would mispronounce her name every time (Ky-ra like Tyra).  Then one day, while a tour bus was in front and the guide said her name wrong again, she appeared on their balcony and shouted “It’s Kyra (like She-Ra), you asshole!”

  • sagecreek

    I wish she’d do something with that mop, but you cannot deny that’s a killer bod.

  • TieDye64

    That’s the best I’ve seen her hair look in ages and it’s still pretty awful, but DAYUM, she looks slammin’ in that dress!

  • nancylee61

    Kyra is disappearing, except for her boobs. Sticks with boobs. I miss the Marilyn Monroe look. At least women weren’t all ropy back then.

  • Yeah, all her accessories do not need to be the same color, but the dress is all that matters.

  • Alexa42

    Thank yew, Kyra Sedgwick for aging fabulously, having one of the best marriages in Hollywood and for being a kick-ass lead in a quirky, character-driven cop show that has entertained for seven years. Brenda Leigh never sported a fiery tomato sheath under her cardigans and dumpy black tote bag – who knew?

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    Sister is WERQING that!  Makes age 46 look amazing!  BRAVO

  • Mirakel9

    She looks great!

  • Shoes, meh. Hair is JBF gorge.
