Jenna Elfman in West Hollywood

Posted on December 10, 2012

We thought this was super-sassy-cute. Then we scrolled down.

Jenna Elfman leaves the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.

Hair and makeup? Gorge! Sheer white cami with a crisp white jacket over it? Smart and chic! Snappy little blue clutch to add a pop of color? Love it!

Droopy crotch trousers with suede orthopedic shoes? Girl, what the hell. Seriously, put your hand over the bottom of her outfit and she looks fantastic. Put it over the top half of her outfit and she looks like she’s in scrubs and making her round in her comfiest clogs.

    Dharma, that’s not your crotch..

  • Judy_J

    The pants and the shoes are a total fail.

    •  If the pants fit, they’d be fine.  As for the shoes … well, she’s 12 feet tall, so maybe she thought flats were the way to go.  Just … Not. These. Flats.

  • I can even forgive the pants, but those SHOOOZ!

    My old school brain is having mirco seizures with all this summery white in December, even understanding that she was in Hollywood at the time.

    • Janet B

      I’m ready to see white in February when I’ve seen enough of Fall and Winter’s dark colors.

      Totally agree about the shoes.

      • Call me Bee

        Yes–especially around here when Fab is dreary and sun-less.  But it’s the creamy rich winter white I love at this time of year–not this crisp, summery stuff. 

  • Hooves.

    •  They look kinda like Isotoner slippers …

      • Introspective

        i love an isotoner!! (while im shuffling around my house in my blue robe enjoying a cup of green tea) honey they have no place on the red carpet. jenna, better luck next time.

  • nannypoo

    Didn’t Althea make these same pants a few weeks ago? Tan with a matching jacket and green blouse, crotch somewhere near mid-thigh and off to one side? I didn’t like them then either. 

    • kimmeister

      Yeah, she did, and they’re gross in all of their incarnations.

  • Cecilia Evans

    Wow, her outfit is the fashion equivalent of a mullet…business up top, party on the bottom.

    • roadtrip1000

       More like nursing home on the bottom.

  • agentilities

    Are the pants dirty as well or just another colour?

  • kschwarting

    Man, those are some clodhoppers, to use my mother’s term. 

  • Call me Bee

    Oh my word.  Jenna is one of the cutest women on the earth and gentlemen, you are so right about the hair, makeup, cami and jacket. But ugh. Awful pants and worse shoes.  
    I am so disappointed in you, young lady.

  • Olga

    Definite scroll down fug. Suede is almost always a poor choice. 

    • Kristin McNamara

      Scroll down fug…. momentarily made even scarier by the incredibly unfortunate cropping/positioning-on-the-page of the second and third pictures together! hahaha For a second there, I was like “Hold up! What’s wrong with her legs?!”

  • Imasewsure

    Flip flops would have been better than these frump feet…hell actually wearing Uggs would have been better….eek

    • decormaven

      Bare feet with a toe ring. Anything but these hiddy shoes.

  • homofascist

    Tom Cruise and John Travolta need to get out the E-Meter and perform a lengthy audit for those shoes alone.  Cleary, she is not Clear.

    • Griffinqueen

       Maybe she’s carrying extra Thetans around in that crotch-pocket.

  • VeryClaire

    Let’s not forget to mention that those pants are capris. Capris in a suit? Nuh uh. 

  • 3boysful

    If you look closely at the pants, it looks like they were intended to be ankle-length, and someone turned them up and put a sloppy 4″ hem in them to crop them.

    Shame, because hair and makeup are totally cute.

  • frannyprof

    Seriously. What the fug.

  • MilaXX

    reason  53546546641355 why I hate round toed shoes.

  • Qitkat

    My neuropathy is cranky today. My feet forgive her feet.
    The rest is cute. Wonky crotches are seen all the time, even with The Orange Designer, I’ve seen worse.

  • RedRaven617

    Her lower half made me think of MC Hammer; “Can’t touch this!”

  • I feel like these pants were actually supposed to be high-waisted and she just decided to wear them low-slung on her hips. That’s actually one of my pet peeves, high-waisted pants misworn as lowrise (I used to date a guy who insisted on wearing pleated pants because they were sold cheaper, and then slinging them over his hips so they gave him saddlebags – AND he was insecure about his butt, I wonder why…). If you tugged up the pants and untucked the shirt a little to blouse out and end at the same spot on her hip, I think this would look a lot better (if you don’t mind high waisted pants).
    But the shoes are just bad. No fixing those clodhoppers. 

  • Hobbitesque. 

  • schadenfreudelicious

    from my vantage point she has both polterwang and clodhopper feet, those totally cancel out her cute upper body and face…

  • Polterwang!!

  • rkdgal

    Did anyone else think that the second and third pics were actually one photo at first?  When viewed that way, the pants are even worse, not to mention the hip contortions!  That was one freaky optical illusion… But none of that takes away from the fug of those shoes.

  • “Nice!” 

    *scrolls down*

    “Oh God.”

  • Tsk tsk on the scrolldown fug, Jeanna.

  • quiltrx

    Pants and shoes ugh…and this is too summery-looking for December in this hemisphere.

  • patticake1601

    She is wearing Mini Mouse shoes. Saggy crotch not a good look. 


    The bottom half of her outfit makes me cringe as much as the promo trailer for her upcoming new show “1600 Penn”….

  • Zippypie

    She’s wearing Dearfoams slippers with saggy crotch.  Oh my.

  • snarkykitten

    Needs more Danny.

  • Aside from the fact that suede clogs and white scrubs would be instantly ruined in the OR, and generally people prefer that their scrubs cover their ankles, the fit is about the same as the rags we have made available for our use.  All it needs is an ID tag hanging from the waistband!

  • librarygrrl64

    Ugh, I agree 100%. So close, Jenna, so close!

  • Her hair is at its best!
    Those shoes look like suede HOOVES.
    Mom capri’s!

  • bertkeeter

    I can just hear Michael Kors commenting on “what’s missing” in her crotch!

  • I love the guy fifth photo down who seems to be recoiling in horror.

  • Louise Bryan

    No way, I have never seen scrubs that uncomfortable looking.  And those shoes?  Forget it.  All that suede would die halfway through the shift.

  • j_anson

    I blame the Europeans. Bless their hearts, they really do think drop-crotch pants can be made to work. That seems to be keeping it in circulation in the fashion world, though at least the incidence is dropping off over time.

  • Scroll down fug. However, the man behind her sporting the scarf gets a WERQ.

  • Ba-bam. Scrolldown fug. 

  • Cathy S

    What the heck’s with the crotch on those pants? What does she keep in there?
