    Talk about Scrolldown Surprise!

      Ha!  And when she steps away there will be a large egg on the runway, don’t you think?

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Super cute!  I am surprised I like it as much as I do – I don’t think I’d like the theory of it, but on Cat, it looks fun.  She’s making it work.

    • I kind of love it, too!  I don’t know why, exactly, because the skirt appears to be molting — but I’m not mad at it.  Don’t think I love the shape of that blazer with the whole ensemble, but I agree that — somehow — she’s making it work.  She’s adorable here.

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        I wish there was a pic without the blazer – it just doesn’t go with the dress, which I would love to see!

    • Sobaika

      She makes everything werk in spite of itself.

  • I don’t think I like this. Also, not sure if it’s the angle of the photo or her posture, but I feel like she’s leaning forward…?

    • DeborahJozayt

      Leaning tower of feather duster!

  • Jecca2244

    she’s literally wearing a wedding dress.

    • I was all, “So who’s the lucky guy?”

  • my allergies are acting up just looking at her! and yes, talk about scrolldown surprise – SO was not expecting that!  she looks like Big Bird and Bjork’s love child….however, her hair and make up work for me. and she has great skin too!

  • In_Stitches

    Looks like a wedding ensemble for a fabulous older bride.

  • rloliveira

    I think she looks beautiful.

  • I wish I could see the top of the dress – it looks interesting. It’s hard to tell, what with the listing to one side and the jacket. 

    • Yeah — my immediate thought was that she chickened out (no pun intended 😉 ) at the last minute and decided to throw the jacket on top…

  • lehen

    i love her.  she’s one of the few who can make this look work

  • I don’t really feel that she is doing justice to a 30s dress. 

  • Not her fault, but it would be so much better if she weren’t against a white backdrop.

  • Cute!

  • Janet B

    I think I like it.  I wish she weren’t wearing the jacket so I could be sure.

  • Why the eff was she allow to put a Miami Vice jacket over a vintage couture gown?  Seriously, these loaner contracts should be more specific in what they allow.  Her make-up is lovely, however.  But jeez!  So weird.

    • DeborahJozayt

      And it’s vintage! Vintage! Why would you want to cover up vintage like that?!

    • H3ff

      I agree. I generally have a soft spot for her, but here she looks ridiculous.

  • Not with that sporty hair!!!

  • I think I love it, but it looks like she had to kill a whole flock of swans to make the skirt. I kind of love the blazer with a gown on the red carpet, too.

  • oh, hah
    Hah hah
    Hah Hah Hah

  • Sara

    I like it against my will, damn it.

  • hillmad

    She looks like a leaning tower of chicken!

  • Imasewsure

    I like this because she looks like she’s laughing with us, not AT us… plus it’s fun. Why not…

  • B_C_J

    This outfit is not working at all.  The length of the jacket going way past her waistline ruins the silhouette and fights with the skirt.  The skirt looks very monolithic and heavy.  This is definitely not her look.

  • kimmeister

    I liked this until I scrolled down to the feather skirt.  On another note, I at first thought the designer’s name was Charlie Bear, which I thought was a really cute name.  Oops.

  • She looks like she’s being swallowed by a chicken.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    She looks like a scrub brush you would you for the toilet.  Wow, that sounds really mean, even for me.  Um, she’s got a very pretty face and lovely hair. 

  • crash1212

    Well, I love this look. L-O-V-E. Love. The blazer makes it, I love the chicken skirt, I love it all in white. Not sure going completely jewelry-less was the right choice, but I’m not mad at her for it. You rock that vintage wedding dress in a wedding-less way Cat.

  • Trisha26

    Another of my irrational hates, she is idolized as host of SYTYCD, but everything about her just grates. Is this a dress & jacket? Skirt & top & jacket? I don’t get the look at all.

  • PastryGoddess

    Now I want chicken dammit

    I love me some Cat Deeley, but either you wear a dress made of chickens proudly or you…don’t.  The blazer is half assed and looks like she’s trying to cover up.  She needs to go back to remedial fashion wearing school

  • Esz

    I wish she’d take the jacket off! I can’t see any of the 30’s awesomeness of the dress.

  • Joyce VG

    I adore Cat Deely even though she’s half beautiful woman and half ostrich in this pic.

  • erinbinek

    I don’t even mind her clothes, it’s the face she makes in every picture that drives me crazy.

  • jw_ny

    The skirt has potential to be good, but not with that jacket, and not with that hair.  And…stop slouching Cat, and do something more interesting with your arms….they’re just hanging there. 

  • MilaXX

    eh’ it’s just okay. I like her hair much better, but I don’t think you can pair a furry skirt/dress with a jacket that casual looking.

  • holdstillnow

    She would be a killer redhead, I think.

  • RzYoung

    Toilet roll cover

  • thatguy9

    I seriously thought that was Ellen Barkin in the first picture.

  • GorgeousThings

    Bride of Big Bird.

  • It’s the Mullet of Designer outfits..  All business on top and party on the bottom…  Uggggg…..

  • littlemac8

    It does look like she’s listing!  Mayday!  Mayday!!!

  • librarygrrl64

    The jacket/blazer needs to be shorter, no?
