    Overpriced potato sack.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    her dress will go on and on……..

    • librarygrrl64

       We are not worthy [bows down to schadenfreudelicious].

  • She’s still slim. Envy

  • charlotte

    More like a J. Mendel tablecloth. And honey, you’re standing on someone.

    • snevhead

      Is it Mozart she’s standing on? Either that or Karl Lagerfeld.

  • She is actually rocking that. Be still my heart.

  • In_Stitches

    Fabulous dress…in a single still on a perfect specimen, styled to death, with a small bust.  In any  other situation, it’s a mess. 

    • cooperalden

      Best I have ever seen her look…she actually looks relaxed…and she never does

  • snevhead

    I cannot ABIDE Celine Dion. Like, she gives me such a cramp. But even I have to admit that that’s a good look for her. The colour is a little, well, dun, but I love the cut of the dress. And it’s age-appropriate (is that a boring observation? I just feel like some women could admit to themselves what age they really are…)

    • I feel like I have found my soulmate. I start so many sentences with “I cannot abide…” and people look at me like I am insane. And I completely agree with everything else you said as well. 

      •  Add me to the ranks of those who, “cannot abide”. There are more of us than you know.

        • formerlyAnon

           Amen, my brothers and sisters in loathing.

          • l_c_ann

            I even find myself using “loathing” more as I get a bit older.

          • DeborahJozayt

            It’s just a natural stage in one’s life. Better than using “vastness”.

          • Esteemed Bitter Kittens,
            I would like to be in your Cannot Abide Celine Dion non-fan club. I can pay my dues with cheap wine and snarky comments. I anxiously await your reply,

            Yrs in loathing, etc.,
            Major Bedhead

          • formerlyAnon

            Sir or Madame Bedhead:

            Your offer to pay dues is unnecessary, but completely charming. Those steeped in a vastness of loathing for Ms. Dion welcome all who cannot abide her. Irrationally or not.

            Consider yourself a charter member.

            Ms. Anon

          • snevhead

            Come the revolution, you can show your loyalty by reaching for a weapon, MajorBedhead (there might even be a promotion in it for you…)

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          You know it’s been 15 years since “Titanic” and I swear that damn song is still lurking somewhere in the recesses of my brain, so I”ll just blame Celine for that. Pourqoui pas?

          • With apologies to Ms Dion, with regard to her performing skills, Ive never been able to see her as anything other than less than the sum of her parts.

      • snevhead

        Why thank you, Miss Amy. Let’s go for cocktails.

    • Agree. Like the dress, irrationally loathe the woman wearing it!

      • kikisayshi

         Me three.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Nice dress.

  • Teri Brinson

    Project Runway draping challenge, top three but not the ‘winner’ because of the color.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I like the shape of the dress and the color, though dull, suits her skin. The dress needs hemming.

  • Celine is on my Irrational Celebrity Hate List, and I’m usually not a fan of what she wears, but I kind of love this look. Love the dress, the color suits her, and the hair and makeup look great.

    My one quibble is that she could have benefitted from wearing a (or a better) bra.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Fabric texture is interesting and jewels are well-chosen, echoing the subtle textural weave. The shape actually suits her long and lean figure, but her dress is the color of liverwurst and that I cannot condone. 

  • Puck Thornton

    I love that dress! If only she had hemmed the sucker and worn some nice support for those sad looking breasts.  

  • shirab

    Sad color, sad boobies, sad posture that makes it look like her left sleeve fell off her shoulder because she was listing to one side. 

  • almondemy

    I wish SWINTON was in this dress.  Or Cate Blanchett…

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      I actually thought Heidi might be able to rock it, but then I doubted because of her boobies. 

      • l_c_ann

        If Heidi were to wear it, we’d be playing a guessing game as to where her boobies would be that night: gone south, easy riding, or Victoria’s secret perky.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Either the divine Tilda or Ms. Cate would elevate this dress.

  • Judy_J

    She needs a better foundation garment under that dress, if you know what I mean.

  • aquamarine17

    for me, neither the dress nor the makeup work for her. she needs to start all over again. maybe a nice fresh high updo would look good, too. (a black or a white dress perhaps, i can’t think of any colors for her, maybe a pale pale apricot dress)

  • nancylee61

    Ugh. Looks like a dirty chamois.

  • B_C_J

    Ms. Dion has an enviable figure and this dress hits all the right notes emphasizing it perfectly.  I actually like the low key color. It adds to the sophistication of the entire look.  My only criticism is the overly long hem.  

  • patticake1601

    I think she looks great but a bra would have been a good idea. 

  • PastryGoddess

    Where is the picture of her with the Bambi!  

  • decormaven

    An appropriate foundation garment and a little lighter hand on the eyebrow pencil, and this would get snaps from me. 

  • SewingSiren

    Draped right of the bolt and pinned in place. Can’t wait to see the finished garment.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    SHE is ageless – in a strange way.  When she was young, I always thought she looked older than her age.  Now she’s older and she looks the same!  So I guess she’s just right now.  She looks amazing.  Don’t love the pictures of this dress – I think you need to see the bare arm side more to get the full effect – with the covered arm in front it all looks a bit shapeless.

  • My Boobs will go on Dion is actually wearing a nice gown. I like it. 

  • formerlyAnon

    I love the dress. The drape in the waist/bodice/arm achieves what almost NO-one’s lovely drapes achieve on a non-model person on the red carpet (even a very thin person) – the same elegance and ease as the carefully tweaked arrangement on the model.

    I even like this dress on her, my most deeply irrational of all irrational celebrity hates. I admit, if I block out her face, I love the dress a lot more.

    • formerlyAnon

       P.s.: points to the venue for a classier ‘mark’ than two strips of electrician’s tape.

  • She needs a (better) bra.

  • mom2ab

    Even small girls need a lift after a couple babies- hoist those puppies up and its near perfect.

  • Stubenville

    Why is she wrapped up in the drapes from her hotel suite?

  • crash1212

    Just because your dress is slouchy, doesn’t mean you have to be.

  • Imasewsure

    She usually looks so awful. This one isn’t bad considering (remember the backwards tuxedo?)

  • frannyprof

    I actually really like this. I just want to know what the Bambi Awards are?

  • greyhoundgirl

    I do like the dress on her–except that the bottom looks like she’s entered a potato sack race.

  • teensmom99

    Mais oui.

  • librarygrrl64

    Horrible color and WHERE ARE HER FEET?!? but the shape isn’t bad on her. A little breastal support would have been nice, though.

  • marilyn

    I like the dress.  She is lucky to be able to wear it well.  She does live concerts a lot, so she is used to going really heavy with makeup.  I think she is wearing too much for this event.  Over all, I wish I looked half as good as she does.

  • jw_ny

    It’s an ok dress, except for the color…too drab and heavy, but I like the style on her.   Boobs need to go up a good few inches tho…

  • nannypoo

    This is a pretty unattractive dress, but for some reason it looks great on her.

  • Jecca2244

    makes her boobs look like they are at her hips…

  • Joanie Hunt

    God help me, but I ALMOST went to see her while I was still living in Vegas (simply because friends told me she was kind to them when they were young performers). Thankfully, I got over that idea because I can’t stand her.
    I do rather like the dress on her even if it probably only looks good if she remains in that position the entire she wears it.

  • sweet_potato

    Not the best choice for her.

  • So saggy and droopy.

  • LilyPad

    I really like the earth tone and relaxed silhouette of this dress paired with the diamonds. I think she looks pretty and very effortless here. Normally not a fan of her style but I think this look really flatters her

  • kikisayshi


  • Drab color ruining any otherwise beautiful dress.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I HATE HER I HATE HER I HATE HER.  I have this irrational hatred of her.  Plus what is wrong with that hair?  Bleached out and all dry, that’s what.  And that dress is drab.  Like she took all of the clothes from the insane asylum, ripped them apart, sewed them together to make a “gown” for a performance for all the other inmates.  UGH.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I recognize that it’s not OK to say “insane asylum.”  So let’s pretend this is 1945 OK?

    • Looks like she very late with her holiday shopping, put on a couple of bags from Sears, and tied them with a string.

  • RzYoung

    She looks great, i usually don’t like her.

  • Claudia Fernandes

    Celine Dion? Really?

    • THAT’s your comment? Really?

      • Claudia Fernandes

        T-LO get my attention! even with an un-nice/stupid post! strong hug from a portuguese fan (lame, but true)

  • Verascity

    Wow… guess I’m in the minority? I think this looks great.

  • EEKstl

    As I instantly harken back to that backwards pant suit she wore to the Oscars eons ago, this is a step up.  I actually like this.  Her face is scaring me a bit, tho…

  • VicksieDo

    I don’t get the Celine hate….she’s a phenomenal singer.  Strange yes, but who’s “normal.”  This dress is a sad color but a well fitting nicely cut dress.

  • Trisha26

    The entire look is droopy…her skin even resembles the fabric.

  • carpediva

    I do wish it was hemmed correctly (and on the model it seems just hair too short), but I actually think this is fierce as shit. Imagine it on someone we love (like Cate B.), who could innately zhuzh it up, and I think we might be bowing down.
