  • She looks pretty cute, but I’m here for the dog.

      Girl, stop trying so hard to work the camera and use your best asset: the ADORABLE FLUFFBALL NEXT TO YOU.

      • Terrie_S

        Plus, if she snuggles with the dog, she won’t look so cold.

  • Girl must be FREEZING! Love the dress though — the pockets are cute, and I surprisingly don’t mind the shapelessness. I only wish she paired this with some bangles or just accessorized it a bit.

    •  Not bangles, I don’t think, because her wrists are going to be right where the gold braid is.  I’d have gone with some fun (but not overpowering) earrings with a light colored stone (yellow topaz or green peridot).  The dress is fabulous, I just love it.

  • procrastinatrice

    Poor Amanda looks so tired…Love the dress. The original caftan version is cooler, but I don’t think that is Amanda’s look.

  • EverybodysStarling

    Perfect little black dress with some interest.

    • 3boysful

       Except that no one will see the interest when she sits down, and she’s going to be uncomfortable making sure she doesn’t reveal the good china.

  • Jessi03

    How cute and happy is that dog?  Aww!  She looks pretty great, too.  Irritated, but pretty.

  • miagain

    I love this dress!!

  • kschwarting

    Dog=adorable.  Dress=cute.  Shoes=meh.

  • Those pockets are giving me life.

  • The dog is her best accessory.

  • minnye

    Awful shoes with that cute dress. Why can’t they wear their (by “their” I mean borrowed designer) coats for the photo op? How stupid.

  • ccinnc

    Huzzah, a star with a large dog! I love her for that. She looks great too.

  • LOL what is this weird back alley she is posing in?  it’s so awkward!

    •  That’s where all the Letterman guests have their photo ops – usually there is a dumpster too.

      • Sara__B

         I haven’t seen the dumpster in a while. I suspect it’s been relocated, but I miss it!

        •  I guess it was bad for their image to have all these people tweeting about stars near the Letterman dumpster!

  • nannypoo

    Great dress and hair. Her makeup looks bad. Her dog seems to be trying to help her out in the second-to-last picture, where he is posing the same way she is.

  • MzzPants

    Gorgeous.  And Amanda is too.

  • Sobaika

    This is a great dress, and I love the pockets, but overall I much prefer the model’s tunic-y version.

  • I want her hair.

  • PeggyOC

    One of the things I like about her is that she’s often spotted with her Aussie, and it looks like he’s well exercised and happy.  I have mad love for star with “real” dogs who take care of them, and dire hate for those who carry spoiled pocketbook accessory fur balls.

    • alyce1213

      Little dogs are real too.   Don’t hate anyone who cares for a dog.

      • another_laura

        hear, hear

      • PeggyOC

         Little dogs are real, and I love me some little dog. I’m a terrier girl all the way.  I’m more decrying the habit of people carrying around little spoiled animals that are treated more like tiny people than dogs. 

  • filmcricket

    Good dress, great dog, bad shoes. And I think she needed a slightly darker lip, she looks very washed out. But that may be due to the cold, I suppose.

  • MilaXX

    needs a stronger lip, but really cute

  • jw_ny

    very cute, but the shoes look kinda clunky.

  • B_C_J

    Beautiful hair. Cute dress but I much prefer the model’s version. 

  • Janet B

    This dress suits her.

    Cute dog, especially when it smiles.

  • It’s cute, but I love the version on the model better.

  • Standard enough, and I’m glad it’s different from the photo that looks like a swim suit cover up.  

  • BrooklynBomber

    I want that dress, but not the model version.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Great hair and makeup, adorable dress, frankenshoes.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Great dress but those pockets are oddly placed. Looks like she’s trying to warm her lady parts when her hands are in them.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    She should definitely make better use of the dog.

    That said, it’s a great little dress for her, though in the shot from the side, it looks like it might be a little big on her.  I think she’s actually right not to put a lot of accessories on it.  Those pockets are just the right touch, and the plain top lets her face be the center of attention with no distractions.  Which is a good thing, if you happen to have a face like Amanda Seyfried’s.

  • alyce1213

    This is Michael Kors?  Big deal. I had the caftan version in 1973, didn’t everyone?
    Amanda’s version is not much more exciting, it’s a black shift ya know.  
    For the second time in a week, I find myself writing about passementerie — I think the placement, size and heaviness over the pockets is clumsy.
    I hate her shoes.

    But she still looks nice.

    The dog is the greatest.

  • I think she looks adorable. She is such a tiny thing, clothing tends to overwhelm her but the proportions of this look are just right for her. And it makes her legs look hella long!

  • Tatiana Luján

    Love the dress, hate the pumps. Her hair is so pretty!
    Why isn’t anyone wearing hose in December in NYC?

  • love!  She looks best with less makeup.

  • another_laura

    Never get photographed with your dog, honey, the dog is always cuter than you.

  • decormaven

    Thank goodness she didn’t wear the hiddy shoes shown in the designer view. Her hair looks great- does she promote a hair care line? Someone should sign her, pronto.

  • RocknRollmom

    I like the dress.  The dog is adorable and she gets points for not having a little rat dog.  Not sure why the dog is there, but ok.  Shoes are wrong.  I am not much of a Kors fan, but I like both dresses, but find him ridiculously overpriced for his generally unoriginal and meh styles.

  • Trisha26

    Another pretty look for her. And like Anne Hathaway earlier, she too doesn’t realize it’s December in New York.

  • Imasewsure

    Hate the poses but love this look on her. Her hair looks beautiful. Adorbs doggie too of course

  • I would have loved this if she’d worn a slightly more interesting shoe.

  • GorgeousThings

    Love that she brings her dog with her!

  • Queen Mirren needs to switch to M.K. to get simpler black dresses with the bling.

  • mmc2315

    I love it!  She’s so unusual looking (in a good way, of course!).  I like the softer eye on her.  GREAT dress.  Very flattering and hip.
    I forgive the shoes, because the dog is wonderful.

  • Sara__B

    Something is making her look much older than her years. Her makeup? Her facial expression? I can’t quite figure it out…

  • Love, love, love this! I am a sucker for a good little shift.

  • Scarlet39

    Her makeup has looked amazing lately

  • kimmeister

    Satin platforms with this, seriously?  But that’s just one misstep in an otherwise fab look.

    On another note, I keep getting distracted by the ad with the New Orleans Hornet player with the major unibrow.

  • EEKstl

    Super pretty.  Hair is perfect, and the added bonus is how it’s such a great match with the embroidery on the dress.  Lovely.

  • rloliveira

    Sweet and swingy.

  • MsBusy

    Begging you TLo — Give Seyfried and Hathaway a rest for a couple days!

  • I think this is totally cute, but all I can think about is how many times the Duchess has complained about a contestant on PR emphasizing a woman’s hips. I can just hear him say, “What woman wants to draw attention to her hips!”

  • Laurie Bergman

    The dress is adorable on her, though I can’t shake the Framed Twin Portals to the Nether Regions feeling I get looking at the pockets.

  • Cute. 

  • Zippypie

    Very cute. Adorable pupster.  But she has to be freezing.  It wasn’t exactly July outside.

  • m0r0

    A Red Tri Australian Shepherd is the best Accessory EVER!

  • In the first picture she looks like she is going to sing “Tomorrow” at any time! LOL. Ugh those lashes, the hair, ugh! 

  • bluefish

    Very chic indeed.  Like AS’ dress better than the one on model.  Fab pockets. 

  • kat89

    Dear Amanda, It’s December. In NY. At the Letterman show where he is legend for keeping the studio at sub-freezing temperatures.
    While this is cute, the version with sleeves might be more appropriate.

    • luciaphile

       At least she’s not in sandals or peep toes, but I take your point. I think the dress is really chic, but the makeup could be better.

  • librarygrrl64

    Cute dress, but I want that photobombing DOG! Suuuuuuch a darling!!!

  • I covet everything there, up to and including the dog.

    • I’m sure you could find a similar dog to love at your local shelter, if you really DO covet the pup.

      • Shelter pets are the best, but my cat has declared himself an only child. It’s probably better for everyone if I obey. 😉

  • formerlyAnon

    Great dress on her. Thank god altered from the version on the model. Coulda/shoulda gone with more elegant shoes, but I have mild prejudices against those platform pumps.

    Her dog is adorable. I like her better because he is not purse-sized.

  • She brought her dog to the late show? Was the dog part of the show?

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    I like the dress but her makeup is just awful. 

  • pookiesmom

    It looks like the pockets are eating her hands. 

  • barbarienne

    The posy-posing is annoying, but her job means she’s going to be followed by people with cameras and she may as well try to make the best of it.

    I love this look on her. Adorable.

  • quiltrx

    So cute!  And the dress is nice, too.

    And seriously, I’m starting to get upset…have they MOVED the Dumpsters of Fashion?

  • Chic as hell! And I LOVE those pockets.

  • frankystein123


  • So much cuter without the freaky eye makeup. Love the pocket detail.

  • neofashionista

    I LOVE this dress
    I would HAPPILY buy this for my own closet if it did not cost more than my rent

  • kategs

    Love that dress, loathe the shoes.

  • guest2visits

    Perfect hair and make-up.  Love the dress on her.   I like the shoes but I wonder if something a bit strappy, or more ‘sexy’
    might have worked even better. 

  • leave_Blake_alone

    Cute!! Nice dog too!
