Naya Rivera in Dolce&Gabbana

Posted on September 18, 2012

We always sit up and take notice when a ladystar wears pants on the red carpet. It’s our thing. We love it when a lady rocks a pair of ladypants and we love it when a ladystar breaks free of the princess fantasies the RC normally trades in.

So good for you, Naya! You look…

Naya Rivera attends The 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards in Dolce&Gabbana.

… really well hung.

We’re thinking that wasn’t the phrase you wanted to hear just now. God knows, it wasn’t the phrase we expected to type. But honey, you need to go slap whoever it was that talked you into dropped-crotch pants. Also, your jacket doesn’t fit very well.

The Tura Satana hair and makeup, on the other hand, is all kinds of drag-fabulous, but you definitely needed a stronger lip.

      that is some manila luzon eye makeup right there. 

      • MissAnnieRN

        The eye make-up is driving me bonkers.  It doesn’t even look well done.  I get what they were going for but the execution just looks like they used a sir-marks-a-lot instead of actual makeup.

        Are those false eyelashes or did someone stick caterpillars to her face?

      • AudreysMom

         On Manilla it looks great; here I felt like spitting on a hankie, holding this girl’s face and wiping some of it off.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      And get your hands out of your pockets.
      Oh, and that jacket is pulling badly under the bust. Go up a size, or have it altered so the fit is smooth.

      • colleenjanel

        It’s probably on loan … Not much altering is gonna be happening.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          True dat. Okay, how about this? Don’t wear things that don’t fit right when you’re going to be photographed.

          • j_anson

            It’s a rule to live by…

            • formerlyAnon

              One would think. But demonstrably not on the red carpet.

        • EveEve

          I hope she hands it back as soon as possible.  Looks like the pants are on backward, because there’s certainly enough room in the front for her entire derriere with room to spare.

      • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

        Or just burn it. 

    • Verascity

      The eye makeup is also making her look roughly 40 years old.

      • Fordzo

        I agree. Especially in the first photo, it’s throwing off her whole face, and she looks like she’s had some bad plastic surgery.

      • NC_Meg

        How is she even holding her eyes open with all those lashes and all that mascara?

      • formerlyAnon

        Round these parts it’s a very latina-under-30 look.

    • MarinaB

      It’s Hammertime!

      • ecallaw1977

         Ha, as soon as I saw the pictures I did a Control+F and put in the word hammer.  I knew somebody had to have said it…

    • Jangle57

      Phew!  I looked at those pants and thought for a second the two of you had gone off your rockers if you were going to declare this a great look.  Crisis averted.  Thanks for the laugh! 

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Blech. That is horrid honey.  

    • UglyCasanova

      Hahahaha, thanks guys.  I needed that, laying down here trying to recover from a fever.

    • Kate McCarroll

      Are we absolutely certain this isn’t Fran Drescher? 

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        Or Eva Longoria?

    • cam_lo

      this outfit is tragic. it is rare that someone so very tiny can possibly look so dumpy. 

      • Kristin McNamara

        And so much larger than her actual size, in the side-view!! Crazy illusions…

    • DaveUWSNYC

      She borrowed Jon Hamm’s pants (sans briefs, natch)

      • AudreysMom

         no wonder the zipper looks like it’s 12″

    • BrooklynBomber

      I’m with you — love a good pantsuit / pants outfit on the RC. But this looks dull. Maybe if it was some great color it’d be different, but as it is, eh.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      yup, those pants are taking poor Naya way past polterwang…

    • par3182

      Ow, my eyes.

    • sweetlilvoice

      Sadly this look really ages her. She’s 25.

    • Fordzo

      I do love the bra/bustier under the jacket, though.

    • unbornfawn

      That is one of the craziest crotches I’ve seen in a while. Not good. It looks like she’s not even wearing lip color and boy does she need it.

    • crackineggs

      Maybe she’s wearing the pants backwards? 

    • nannypoo

      Is this a current trend or just a mistake?

    • Scarlet39

      Is it on purpose?

    • Judy_J

      I thought you guys had lost your minds until I scrolled down and read the rest of the story.  Those pants are a disaster!

    • Kayceed

      Those trousers are so odd. I like me some slouchy-ness on a tailored trouser, but the waistband (with belt loops?) about the hips, a  peg leg and a dropped crotch? What the heck was D&G thinking here? The sum is lesser than the parts. Everything looks like a mistake.

    • Call me Bee

      Insane crotch. 

    • jw_ny

      truly awful.  

    • lrhoff

      Good grief, who was she doing in the limo on the way there?  

    • Candigirl1968

      A for effort.  C for execution.  

    • Larkin21

      Such a shame about the crotch. I love everything else.

    • Jorgiana Jake

      Naya Rivera…pant suit…eye makeup…blah blah blah.  I’m just happy to see you referencing the original badass – Tura Satana!  

    • Gotham Tomato

      To quote The Duchess, “That crotch is insane!’


    • Wohohow

      She’s looking a little like Scar, circa Lion King

    • janetjb

      Nice attempt.  Now go find a different suit and a bit more subtle makeup.

    • Bert Keeter

      Agree…pants are creepy….

    • marlie

      So unbelievably unflattering, the dropped crotch pants. And it seems like she’s wearing 60 pounds of foundation, pushing her dangerously close to drag queen territory. 

    • MilaXX

      UGH! She needs a red lip and a pencil skirt.

      BTW  TLo I realize the ads pay the bills, but the audio ads really & truly bug. If I promise to click a few extra times a day can we reject those please?

    • BelladonnaRising

      AAAAAAAGGGHH!!!! *runs away, screaming and crying* Miss Naya…please, please burn that outfit. Here, have some makeup-remover. Oh god, my eyes. 

    • Zippypie

      What is THAT?!  *runs screaming in terror*

      I don’t think her intention was to look like a she-male.

    • dickylarue

      I’m really starting to think she only looks good in a cheerleading outfit which works quite well for me!

    • Aidan B

      She looks twice her age! 

    • j_anson

      Dear fashion: STOP. Stop with the dropped-crotch pants. Yes, the Europeans are willing to be conned into wearing them. No, they will never look good on literally anyone.

    • Lisa

      All she needs is an Adam’s Apple to complete her total drag-a-licious look!

    • frankystein123

      If the suit top and pants were better fitted, this could had worked. But then again, here makeup here is just to drag-queen-esque.


      “really well hung” – my burst out in laughter moment of the day. Thank you!

    • formerlyAnon

      Y’all nailed it. Stronger lip and pants that fit – & I’d have overlooked the jacket to gush over this. The eye makeup doesn’t bother me, it’s “a look” I don’t love but am ok with.

    • ccm800

      save all this makeup for a lesser beauty – an older lesser beauty PLEASE!  People who dress this girl: SHE IS A FUCKING KNOCK OUT! Let that shine.
