    so shiny and red and lacquered. She looks like a designer barbie. She is so very pretty, I think she could go edgier.

    • no, she is not a designer Barbie but a playline Barbie.   Her dress is a corcet  Barbie would wear underneath her formal gown.   As a doll,   this one just wont sell.

      • how about Deconstructed Saloon Whore Barbie?

        • Nelliebelle1197

           Circus Circus Showgirl Barbie

          • EveEve

            Rockettes Christmas Extravaganza Barbie. The detachable skirts become the giant Christmas tree’s skirt in the grand finale.

    • drdarke

      I disagree, @CPK1:disqus – I think her looks says, “Yes, I’m pretty and I look all innocent – but I’ve also got just a bit of a taste for nasty sex. Are you Big Bad Wolf enough to eat me…?”

  • Is she doing a second part of Little red riding hood? if so, that should be part of the costume design.

  • Honey, please don’t match your lipstick to your dress. kthxbye.

  • Wish she had worn a different lipstick, but you can’t say she didn’t turn it out here. Modern Barbie. Looks like an American Marion Cotillard. 

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    The bottom part of the skirt is odd…

    • 3boysful

       The bottom’s odd and the top is ugly.  The whole thing needs the balancing (and the corset-covering) of the overtop thingy on the model.

  • random_poster

    The shiny dress fabric looks like it’s meant to for a halloween costume. 

    • AmandaCathleen

       THIS. The fabric just looks so damn cheap! This would definitely be an “OUT” for me.

    • Right. Cheap halloween costume. Face and hair are great though.

    • out for a walk

      The fabric and the finishing both. Seeing the end of the boning so clearly and little loose threads is pissing me off. And the hem. Blegh, it really does look like a cheap costume.

  • PastryGoddess

    the more I see it the more I like it.  That color looks good on her.  

    My only quibble is the corset/not corset bodice…meh

  • LLuL

    Not working. That dress is just silly.

  • decormaven

    Doesn’t help that the beige in the dress is almost the same hue as her skintone-makes the detailing look like cutouts. Shoes don’t set off the look; the designer’s choice makes more of a statement.

  • SophieCollier

    Hot pink taffeta.  Really?

  •  It is skating a little close to a Moulin Rouge costume but I like it. She’s young – and oh so pretty – and can pull it off. I think she looks cute.

    • l_c_ann

      Young, but a lot closer to 30 than to 20. 

  • nnbb

    She looks like an old fashioned ice cream shoppe waitress.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like the top without the capelet, but I don’t see her as one to pull off wearing it.

  • Imasewsure

    I don’t usually like shiny but she looks gorgeous… kind of clean-slutty which I like

  • l_c_ann

    The dress would work well in the “Hey big spender” song from Sweet Charity.

  • afabulous50

    She looks like she’ll be performing on the high-wire any minute now!

  • Sara LaBatt

    Huh.  She looks a lot like Madonna.  Right down to the bustier.  I do not like this dress.  Too shiny, weird beige bra color outlines, skirt looks tacked on.  Just doesn’t look like a dress to me, but a home ec project with mom’s old red corset maybe.  And I’m not convinced that color on her lips is her friend.

  • enid soto

    Candy cane dress. 

  • Sobaika

    I was never fully onboard the underwear-as-outerwear thing.

  • the face is sex, the outfit is Christmas tree topper. 

  • rissa42210

    No.  That looks like a Fredrick’s of Hollywood bustier roughly sown onto a christmas tree skirt.  No.  Also, close your mouth on the red carpet, girl.  Sexy means not having to try that hard.

  • sashaychante

    I’m not fond of the dress but at least it FITS her.  Her lipstick seems harsh.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Amanda Seyfried attends the 24th Annual Adult Film Awards.

  • ojosazules

    She’s being dissected by the Spirit of Christmas. Her breasts are in danger.

    • kimmeister

      Ha, like being drawn and quartered.  Er, “sixthed.”

  • librarygrrl64

    Too shiny for me, but the style and color work on her, and it fits her beautifully. I love a gold shoe with this, but I’d love it more if the dress weren’t so shiny.

  • anotherkate

    I kind of miss that goofy jacket with it. It’s ugly, but it adds another tier to the whole “tiered look” thing.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Ugh. The way the model is styled gives it a “yeah, I’m wearing this, go fuck yourself” attitude. Without that it’s just toooo much.

  • Saloon girl Barbie…hate it…all she needs is the fishnets and feather in her hair…

  • She needs the front part of the dress. 

  • Clueless_Jock

    Agent Provocateur with a skirt.

  • alyce1213

    The editorial (runway) version is much nicer. I dislike corset-inspired dresses in general (and especially wedding gowns). 
    Only Helena Bonham Carter can pull it off.
    Cute girl, though, and gorgeous hair.

  • I think she looks gorgeous. Props for doing something unusual on the red carpet.

  • Isadora Paiva

    Too shiny and it looks oddly unfinished (that hem!). She does have the best hair in the business though, so shiny!

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    Stoned duckface + cheap shiny fabric = NO THANK YOU.

  • MissMariRose

    I see she’s dressing up as a sexy candy striper for Halloween. 

  • EEKstl

    Is this what Candy Stripers looked like at the Moulin Rouge?

  • Not good. That dress looks like a cheap saloon girl costume that a drug store would have in their Halloween section.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

     I really like this silhouette on her, but the dress itself looks too much like a costume.

  • Lilithcat

    It’s a great color on her.  And that is the only good thing about this dress.

  • quiltrx

    This is an odd look anyway (tomato red with old bras is not a color combo I go for)…but it is much, much better with the topper.

  • she’s a whole new kind of candy striper!  a candy stripper?  anyways, what a beautiful girl.

    • Yes! This! A candy stripper. She’s a beautiful woman, but this is just so obvious. She looks like a sex doll, which mightn’t be a bad thing in the right circumstances, but just seems cheap on the red carpet.

  • JauntyJohn

    “Hey you guys, what if Wonder Girl worked in an English Music Hall?”

  • schadenfreudelicious

    “Cigars, cigarettes”……

  • I think hair and makeup look fabulous, but that is one cheap-looking, ugly dress.

  • My immediate, visceral reaction was “Honey, NO.” I don’t know if it would be better or worse with the weird cape thingy that the model has. Regardless, it looks like a cross between a design-schoool project and lingerie. 

  • rainwood1

    This looks like the bridesmaid dress that goes with those terrible P’nina see-through corset wedding dresses.

  • She looks like a blow-up sex doll that used to be advertised in the back pages of questionable magazines, right down to the gash of red across her face (aka lipstick).  No wonder you haven’t bothered to leave a comment, TLo, and just left it up to us.  No, no, no.

  • crash1212

    That dress NEEDS the little jacket thingy – without it she looks like a slightly updated version of a saloon girl. And the lipstick is making me want to attack her with a tissue…not a good choice.

  • Cloveradams

    Belle Watling’s kicking-around-the-bordello outfit.

  • I know it’s anathema to just replicate the look from the runway, but this just doesn’t seem to work without the cape and shoes.

  • AlexisPayne

    Feels very Holiday, also don’t know that I like the drop waist.

  • I don’t want it to be shorter, but the hem looks too long for the overall proportions of the dress. Plus, I just don’t like the look at all.  It looks like a cross between lingerie and a clown costume.

  • Trisha26

    Did the old West saloon gals have lipstick that matched their corsets, too?

  • Steampunk Wonderwoman is just a pair of laceup boots and some gold cuffs away.

  • belfebe

    I would have liked it with the top that the model is wearing.

  • jennsilentcrow

    Thought i loved it till i saw the whole thing and up close. This is a good color though,IMHO.

  • jennsilentcrow

    replying to myself. It does NOTHING for her which is weird.

  • The fabric looks like it belongs on a Savers $7.88 Halloween Costume.

  • Mary229

    I love her but I sort of hate this look from head to toe.

  • HazellC

    It’s like she’s recycling her Jingle Bell Rock costume from Mean Girls.

  • neofashionista

    I question if this is in her wheel house but she is working it so good for her

  • nannypoo

    Sort of an SM look, wouldn’t you say?  Like a naughty Santa’s Elf.

  • PaulaBerman

    Bordello wear.

  • margaret meyers

    Trick rider in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.

  • understateddiva

    Why must everyone’s lipstick be seen from space??  This is becoming a Thing.

  • Call me Bee

    Well, given that this is basically an undergarment with a skirt, it’s kinda cute and fits well.

  • butter nut

    clown lingerie.

  • I swear my homecoming dress, circa 1989, looked like this. Not good.

  • RzYoung

    hmm, think i prefer it with the funny shoulder thing.

  • I think the jacket is fabulous, or could be with a pair of stovepipe panys.  The dress is for a Christmas hooker.

  • sophie elliott

    I actually really like this. A mix of sexy, sassy and classy.

  • guest2visits

    Even though she wears it much better than the model, this is really a cheapy looking fabric, color and design.
    The corset portion isn’t bad, but the skirt looks like a troup of Brownies made it for a Christmas tree-stand.
    She is gorgeous though, and it looks like the shoes and clutch are very nice.

  • littlemac8

    While I appreciate the fact that she doesn’t have baby heads (which keeps her from looking totally like a tartlet) that shiny, shiny fabric looks cheap, cheap, cheap!

  • Corsetmaker

    Ooh, the finish isn’t very good is it! Look at that hem.
    I really dislike cupped bodices. Hate them when Dolce & Gabbana do them too, just don’t like. It looks better a little shorter and fuller as it is on the model too. It all seems a bit skimped and limp on her.
    That coral red is quite pretty. That’s about all I can say in it’s favour.

  • B_C_J

    I like the corset portion of the dress. The skirt attached to it is not my favorite.  Love the coral color especially because she is a very beautiful but pale woman.  The hair is lovely. 

  • annmarmae

    Madonna Prom circa 1987.  

    Nip that skirt into a pencil silhouette and we can talk.  

  • CMS

    I really really like the shoes on the model

  • ccm800

    looses all charm without the capey thing and could she please stop making the 976-call me face already?
