  • Poor thing always looks so desperately uncomfortable. Everything about her body language and expression is saying, “I’d rather be getting oral surgery right now, with no anesthetic.”

    • MarissaLG

      So true. 

    • JDreesen

      lately she’s almost always employing my patented “i’m having a good time” smile. very forced, no passion.  i have used it for every holiday gathering family photo since 1991.

      •  And did she borrow the dress from your family gathering in 1991 too? It looks very dated! (I moved continents to get away from family Christmas).

        • Winter_White

          I hear you, foodycatAlicia…!  When other planets are open for colonization, my husband and I will be signing up for that.

    • j_anson

      Poor kid.

    • She looks so so terrified. Poor thing

    • MilaXX

      And she is always dressed in the same body hugging style. I wish her folks would try some softer, more feminine looks.

      • charlotte

        Maybe she should try Spice Girls instead of All Saints. Vicki Posh is designing some pretty decent dresses these days.

      • holdstillnow

        I don’t think she has “folks.”  She’s clearly doing her own hair and makeup (take that translucent powder away from her!). And I truly don’t think that dress wouldn’t look good on anyone.

    • mjude

      you read my mind.  i always feel sad when i see her.

    • Candigirl1968

      ITA.  And yet, she wears too tight, too short outfits to boot.  Maybe if someone put her in something that wasn’t a size too small, and was pretty instead of having an air of skanky, she might be more comfortable.

    •  Actually, I think all she really wants IS the anesthetic.

  • Anathema_Device

    Fairly typical, but it is longer than usual and not low cut, plus sleeves!  Not sure it is all that flattering on her, though. Maybe go up a size? Not wear a high neck with sleeves? It is making her look a little block-y.

    • Lori

      I think there are very few people who would be flattered by a dress that’s basically just a pile of ruching with a visible zipper.

    •  The fit is really off for her. Its just making her look like a lumpy sausage, which is unfortunate.

  • SewingSiren

    Poor thing. She really doesn’t know, does she?

  • lucyloo222

    I was more fascinated with her hair, makeup and shoe choice.  She looks pretty cracked out.  And Britney, never, ever wear shoes that make you look like you have cankles.  Ever.

    • 3boysful

       Seriously–those shoes aren’t just ugly, they’re so unflattering.  As are the dress . . . and the raccoon eye makeup . . . and the bad extensions.

  • S_Swift

    I feel for her; she looks so worn out. 

    • mhleta

      I do too. I don’t think she’s ever enjoyed her fame. That coupled with her personal issues must be an awful burden.

    • Sara__B

       She does look worn out, poor thing. I wish she’d work with a consultant for more flattering hair color, hair style, and make-up. She’s only 30; she shouldn’t look so tired and used-up!

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the shoes remind me of a horse’s mane which is apropos since her hair looks about as healthy as a horse’s there no stylist or colorist in Hollywood that can help this poor girl with that mop?…..oh and when i first read the shoe desription without my glasses i read “labia fringe” which was most alarming! 🙂

  • It just isn’t working like it should. The dress is being pulled so tight across her chest the rest of the fit is messed up. I guess at least it has sleeves and an appropriate length….? It’s so hard to see her be so visibly uncomfortable while in unflattering clothes. Painfully obvious. 

  • Dress looks cheap, weave — I won’t even go there. Girl, those are not your shoes. Eyes and lips are pretty, but that eyebrow situation calls for a cholita intervention. And blush cannot be lighter than her skin tone — that defeats the purpose of blush. Who let her out of the house like that?

    • Ha ha, a cholita intervention! I’ve been seeing a lot of cracked out eyebrows in Hollywood lately. Something bad is afoot.

    • kimmeister

      The brows, they slay me.

  • Janet B

    Britney looks so out of her comfort zone.

  • Imasewsure

    The dress shows that she is in good shape and it’s not trampy which is nice, but it doesn’t really look good either… Her legs look great but too sturdy for those strappy (and ugly) shoes… not awful but not great either. Think the shoes push it over in to ugly more than anything else…. Good try though Brit… you are getting there….

  • Jessi03

    Oh Brit Brit.  Don’t be so unsure of yourself.  We love you!  I just want to shield her from the lights and give her a puppy.

  • clevRcat

    Man!… .She’s a great-looking woman with access (no doubt) to great hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists.  How hard can it be?  She looks a mess.

  • merciblahblah

    I was excited when I saw in the thumbnail she was going to be in All Saints, because Britney in All Saints SHOULD be a good fit. Unfortunately, it is exactly the opposite, for all of the reasons everyone has already stated. I just wish someone TRULY had her best interests at heart and would take her under their wing. There is so much potential there, but sadly it just never quite comes through.

  • RzYoung

    Oh god, I feel bad looking at this – it’s a bit like when celebrity children get papped, i just feel guilty seeing the picture!

  • G

    She is going to turn out to be another “of course”.

  • Contralto


  • I don’t know which is worst: hair and makeup or the extremely cheap looking dress…or everything else!?! For some reason she always looks as if she is still in 2001…would desperately reccomend a total makeover, surely there should be that kind of show for celebs just as it exists for “real people”..

  • Rebecca Bledsoe

    Oh dear, bless her heart.

  • Kathryn Graham

    I don’t understand. Isn’t Brit-Brit loaded? Don’t her carers allow for her to have stylists, hairdressers and make-up artists? Poor girl, she looks like she just wants to get the hell out of there.

  • Joyce VG

    I am so worried for her all of the time.  

  • Tracy_Flick

    I don’t get how you can have so much access to good stylists and expensive clothing, and STILL look like a picture from a 1991 yearbook. I think she’s actually really likeable, but if she can’t hit “classy” at all, the next 30 years are going to be slow-mo disaster.

    • Judy_S

      Yearbook picture, yeah. Nicely dressed and put on some makeup for the camera. Not quite the Homecoming Queen, but maybe a second-string cheerleader.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Depression in hoochie dress form.

  • MzzPants

    Oo.  She looks rough.  Time for the spa.

  • Why does Brit always look like some poor schlub from the wrong side of the tracks who just pulled out her ONE “nice” outfit. The ill-fitting dress, the terrible hair extensions and/or dye job, and cheap looking ugly shoes just scream “I look klassy (with a k), don’t I?!?”

  • miagain

    bless her heart… but she will never look like anything other than white trash.

  • dsco3031

    This just makes me sad. Let’s play a game– how do we fix Britney?

    First things first, I think we warm up that awful blond to a caramel-brown. It’ll probably add years to her face and avoid the trashy look that this platinum blond always brings. 

    I don’t know where to start with the dress. Better undergarments maybe, then move on to a more flattering, better fitting style– I’m not sure what that is at this point.

    • Tatiana Luján

      That zipper on the side wouldn’t flatter anyone.

    • She looks so incredible every time she’s thrown on a brunette wig, especially when it’s in a short bob or even a lob with a nice thick fringe (like in the Womanizer video). Doesn’t she see herself done up like that in the mirror and think “I look damn good. I should rock this look for a while!”? 

      Instead she looks at herself wearing a dress that looks like it was made from a coffin lining, with hair that looks like it was colored in a third-rate mall salon and suffers from cheap extensions that look like they were done in stock room of a Sally’s Beauty Supply, and clearly thinks “Hot damn, I look awesome.” 🙁 

      This is the style in brunette:

      It also looks good on her as a blonde:

      I’m no Britney fan but I have heard that she doesn’t really give a crap about fashion. But to me, that seems like even more incentive to rock short hair in warmer, darker colors.

  • Horrible hair, horrible!!!!!! 

  • Judy_J

    At least she has nice teeth.

  • sweet_potato

    Oh that poor girl.

  • decormaven

    This, by all rights, should work. However, the dress is poorly fitted, the shoes make her legs look stumpy, and her hair looks unhealthy. Top it off with an overzelous blush application, and it is just all shades of wrong. She’s come so far from her Chaotic days; why can’t her stylists work a little harder and get her the BEST looks?

  • The long blonde hair is so played-out – even if it was real and not extensions.  Can’t she get a more modern color and cut?  Agree with all mentioned dress/shoe criticisms.

  • xmixiex

    i don’t understand how someone with so much money always looks like crap.

  • I don’t like the black dress.  Or the bubblegum pink blusher.  Kinda like the shoes.

  • Oh, dear.

  • alyce1213

    I feel sorry for her.

  • Has Britney blown through all of her money? Because if not, she should be paying for someone to do her hair and makeup. Screw that, her SHOW should be paying for it.

  • crash1212

    Good lord. Everything – awful – head to toe. Awful. Poor girl always looks SO uncomfortable in front of the cameras…I just want to give her a hug, cover up her ugly clothes and ratty hair, and take her to get a nice, calming cup of tea.

  • Everything here is just awful. Well, I guess the dress is okay at best.

  • her shoes are having a bad hair day

  • NCDFan

    Way too tight through the top. And it’s making the rest of the dress pull out of shape as well. Needs to get one tailored for her proportions instead of the skinny model cut.

  • B_C_J

    The fit is horrendous because this dress is too tight and possibly too short. The shoes are quite ugly especially because of the horsetail fringe covering the heel. Additionally because they go so high up, they shorten her leg and make her look stumpy.   Her hair defies description.  It looks like it needs the roots touched up, washed and properly brushed.  Perhaps she should have the old extensions removed and new ones put in.  She needs a new stylist. 

  • Trisha26

    Tacky Is as Tacky Does. 

  • dramamajor

    Girl looks a hot-buttered mess, poor thing.

  • spooki C

    The hair, the makeup, the shoes, the everything, it’s all so awful. She’s been looking like shit for a long time and it’s really unfortunate. I just don’t think her heart is in this any more, she just wants to wear sweats and ugg boots and spend time being a mom. 

  • stubbornthoughts

    Did anyone see the video from this appearance? I’ve never heard paparazzi yell so fervently for pictures and don’t blame her one bit for this facial expression. I’d want to tell them all to STFU.

    That being said, I just want to give her a hug and curl up on the couch by her where we’ll watch some Friends.

  • She knows she looks terrible. Poor lass.

  • erinbinek

    There is never a time when she doesn’t look a hot mess.  Just her nature, I guess.

  • kschwarting

    Well, at least she stepped away from the bandage dresses…but this shirred thing is a nightmare.  Lest she leave Herve Leger too far behind, though, she’s wearing a pair of the brand’s shoes. 

  • ojosazules

    This looks like she recycled it out of an old tire. She has old tire boobs. 

  • quiltrx

    She really looks unhappy…maybe it’s because she’s crammed into that thing.  Maybe it’s because it’s black (?), but the whole thing just gives off a lumpy vibe I don’t like.

  • poor thing looks so scared.

  • Oh, Britney. Ruching is not your friend.

  • This just looks so tacky. Especially with the visible zipper. Newsflash: It isnt edgy anymore to show a zipper, it looks forced. Just like Brit’s smile. I feel so bad for her. Especially because she chose those clothes.

  • MaryAtRealityTea

    What is happening on her head? Someone has been watching too many 90210, The Original marathons on TBS. 

  • Teri Brinson

    She never fails to wear the worst shoes for her body type. If anyone should stock up on the nude platform pumps that elongate the leg it is her but nope, always cutting off across the ankle.

  • ChristinaRi

    The dress is a bit longer than what she normally wears, so I will simply praise her for that progress.  

    Well done, Brit.

  • lucasuk82

    Britney has never been a fashion girl.  I think she should take a page from Kors’ book, and find her uniform.  Dark jeans and a black blazer, white shirt?  She could play with bags and jewelry, and hopefully feel comfortable.

  • librarygrrl64

    Makeup is okay. Other than that? Hot mess.

  • Oh, no.
