Rose McGowan in L.A.

Posted on December 06, 2012

Rose is in the holiday spirit and she wants the world to know it:


Rose McGowan out and about in LA.

We love how it takes her a minute to strap on her ducklips face for the camera.

Rose, honey, we love your kitschy little holiday sweater but we’re here to tell you that the blonde hair is not doing you any favors, girl.

    Oh dear…

    I know she had an accident, but I’ve heard rumors that she had work done way after the accident? I remember when she was natural and gorgeous looking ūüôĀ

    Also the blond makes her honestly look like Courtney Love, and that’s no compliment.

    I could see this being for a TV role?

    Maybe for “True Life: I’m a Cocaine Using Soccer Mom”?

    • ChiliP

      The accident left some scarring under her eye, which she consulted a plastic surgeon to correct. Anything else you see was/is elective.

      The blond hair is NOT good. It makes her look so generic-suburban housewife, which is not how Miss Rose should look.

  • Sobaika

    I am dying at the last photograph. You can almost see her thought bubbles: ‘You werk, Rosie! Give it all you got!’

    • Insidiously

      “Can you rock reindeer like I can, bitches???”

      • gabbilevy

        I wonder if she’ll loan it to me for my ugly sweater party.

    • therealkuri

      Honestly, if I had random¬†paparazzi¬†following me wherever I went, I’d probably get silly like that at least once a day: “Oh, you’re taking a photo of me? Let me try out mah blue steel, baby! Rawr!”

    • SpillinTea

      I love how you can always tell she was brought up by drag queens. Every photo its like “SERVE!” followed by “FIERCE!!” followed by “WERK!!!”

  • That’s a wig, right? She didn’t actually do that to her hair? Rose, dear, find whichever stylist told you this was a good idea and throw things at them. Shoes, vases, kittens, whatever is to hand, really. You’ll feel better.

    • Looks like the Cindy wig from Sepia. In 24b/613, maybe?

    • pop_top

       Apparently her inspiration is Michelle Pheiffer in Scarface.

  • Rand Ortega

    Love her. Hate that mop on her head.

  • xmixiex

    aw man.

  • EmJayEl

    Is she playing the lead in Lifetime’s movie about the life of Ann Jillian?

    • JosephLamour

      OMG I started laughing, googled to make sure and then laughed some more at this.

    • Ann Jillian is the new style icon, if Rose and XTina have anything to say about it!

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Good one.

    • lovelyivy

      ¬†We all know that the world has been crying out for a remake of It’s A Living!

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        “It isn’t all a great big bed of of roses, it’s not like show biz, but the main thing I suppose is…”

        • NinaBoo

          Greeeaaaatttt, that little ditty is going to be running through my head until the next time I hear “Call Me Maybe”.

          • lovelyivy

            ¬†Could be worse. The other day I read an Andrew Sullivan post about the resurgence of the word ‘Lady’ and had that god damn Kenny Rogers song stuck in my head for a solid hour. It truly was a small slice of hell.

    • BrooklynBomber

      I just posted Ann Jillian but I see you beat me to it. So glad I’m not the only one old enough to remember her or It’s a Living.

  • I kinda of love that you see she is surprised and then she’s just like, fuck it, Imma work this like a photo shoot. What I don’t love is that hair, the cut and the color do absolutely nothing for her.¬†

  • MilaXX

    That is so not her hair

  • Why do people do the ducklips thing?
    Blonde hair aside, she looks so cute in the first two pictures.
    Theennnnnn come the ducklips.

    • ecallaw1977

       She looks to me like she was being intentionally silly, pretending she was walking a catwalk once she noticed the paparazzi.

  • Tatiana Luj√°n

    at first I thought she was Emma Stone making silly faces.

  • Janet B

    Are we sure that isn’t a wig? ¬†She looks so¬†different¬†as a blond I forgot who she was for a minute.

    • Lisa_Cop

      Looks like a wig to me. But that’s not a good color for her:(

  • Aw, now this is just plain sad.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Bad hair. Baaaaaaad.

  • formerlyAnon

    Who’s to notice anything else when she’s doing those lips and what looks like an exaggerated little model strut? I hope she was sniggering behind her hand once past the photographer(s).

    • random_poster

      Or flipping them off

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    That hair, oy vey.  She looks like a hungover Emma Stone with duckface.

  • MarTeaNi

    Whut is this Bible-belt soccer mom haircut.  Did she get cast on a sitcom?  Will I see her bitching at the Wasted Moose bar in Madison about her oldest children, Braidyn, who wants to move to a big city while her three similarly coiffed friends make snappy comments to a laugh track?

  • I could swear to you that we sell that hair at my place of business. 24.99, and it comes in lots of colors.

  • The last two photos, I can basically see her shaking her hips which makes me love her a little, but the blond hair doesn’t work – she looks like a Samantha Jones impersonator from the neck up.¬†
    Cute sweater. 

    • ¬†Wasn’t there an episode of SATC with a Samantha Jones drag queen?

      • Yup. Though I don’t think Rose looks like a man, I just think she just looks unlike herself.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    She’s adorable except for that ‘Marsha Brady goes into menopause’ hair. Ick!

  • In_Stitches

    I love the duckface, it’s a little Lucille Bluth.

  • Martha Deutsch

    These photos are hilarious. 

  • I don’t believe you. This MUST be on set, surely?!

  • Judy_J

    That blonde color is so very wrong for her….so very, very wrong.

  • Tracy_Flick

    Golden Girls. 

  • Agreed. Love the sweater. Hate the hair.

  • MissMariRose


  • Love the sweater! But she’s starting to look like Lindsey Lohan’s doppleganger…..

  • The whole thing gives me a sad.

  • Hahahahahahahahaha! Laughing my ass off right now. Actually, the outfit is pretty cute. But the facial expressions and body language are hilarious. That blond wig is gawdawful.¬†

  • ghastly. i remember her as lush and sensual looking.

  • UglyTalents

    Drunk. That is drunk ducklip face. That is “I am so drunk and it’s not even noon” ducklip face. She put on a wig and went “incognito” to a dive bar for several Clamato-n-Tequilas, and now she ain’t feelin’ so sober. … And that sweater is a lot like what I wear when I go out to get daytime hammered!

    • UglyTalents

       In other words, I think she looks marvelous.

      • formerlyAnon

        Spontaneous laugh elicited by this addendum. Thank-you.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I really, really hope she had to dye her hair for a part in a movie.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the only rational explaination for this is that Rose was dipping into the Christmas spirit(s) a little early this season…

  • Did she go back to the set of Scream and steal Drew Barrymore’s wig?

  • kimmeister

    This reminds me of an episode of, I think it was Mr. Belvedere, where the brunette daughter wanted to test saying that “blondes have more fun” by buying a blonde wig and noting the reactions she got for a few days.

  • Le_Sigh

    I’m hoping that’s a wig¬†

  • susan6

    I wonder if she has alter-egos the way that Chloe Sevigny has alters. 
    Stacy is a suburban soccer mom who enjoys wearing tacky holiday sweaters and air-kissing strangers.¬† On the weekends she breaks out the leather and whips….¬†

  • jw_ny

    ducklips is the most ridiculous pose/trend ever.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    She looks like Charlotte Ross’s bag lady older sister. Meanwhile, I think she’s younger than the real Charlotte Ross.

  • toastedink

    Whoever her plastic surgeon is/was should be ashamed

  • Is there anything here that doesn’t scream small town mall?¬† I don’t know whether to give her a hug or a drink or just admit I’m not cool enough to get the joke.

  • My 9 year old daughter is standing here with me and just said, ‘what’s wrong with her face?’

  • marilyn

    Those LA people are funny.  I know she is trying to be very wintery in this picture, but the guy walking behind her is wearing a cotton shirt, without a jacket or anything.  For her, the boots, the pants and the sweater must be very hot to wear, and I mean temperature-wise.  Is it the heart of the hideous LA winter, when the high is 70?  This is funny to me.

  • jeneria

    Why does Rose look like Lindsay Lohan trying to be Carol Channing?

  • Trang Nguyen

    Oh no. That shade of blonde and the style is too aging. The sweater is supercute.

  • aquamarine17

    she is unrecognizable. I didn’t know about any accident. the blonde hair is not working at all, unfortunately.¬†

  • She looks adorable in that outfit, and I love how she’s vamping for the paps, but I hate that dye job.

  • Oh dear. ¬†Is this for a LiLo biopic?

  • BrooklynBomber

    Ann Jillian!

  • barbarienne

    I want to start handing out tickets to women who do the duckface. When in the history of ever was that considered attractive in any way at all?

  • ahelkow

    Love the sweater…Hate the puss on her face

  • LLuL

    Wow. Hair that adds 20 years and 40lbs. I would not have thought it was possible, but there it is. 
    I can’t decide whether I’m amused or alarmed by these pictures.

  • prettybigkitty

    Yikes. . . .

  • so i’m the only one who thought it was lindsay lohan on a bender after making another bad hair decision?

  • pulpytomato

    I saw this sweater in H&M the other day. Nearly bought it as this year’s “ugly Christmas sweater.” $30.

  • RzYoung

    It must be fun being her! I wonder what song was playing in her brain as she strutted along.

  • decormaven

    No disrespect, but she looks rattled and a wee bit unfocused. Dear, go fix a green monster smoothie for clarity of mind, then go fire the hair stylist who did bad, bad things to your coif.

  • SewingSiren

    She looks twenty years past her actual age. I thought it was Goldie Hawn.

  • Ick. She looks like a middle school teacher.¬†

  • Cathy S

    I love the sweater but the ducklips are silly. Whenever anyone does it.

  • Jecca2244

    is she actually posing in that photo??

  • afabulous50

    Is she drunk?

  • Ms_Flyover

    You need a new tagline “Girl, that’s not your hair.” ¬†In this case, it actually looks like it’s not her hair…

  • EEKstl

    That Soccer Mom hair is un disastre.

  • guest2visits

    I think the blonde works for her, actually.  She looks completely different, but not bad.
    Turns out she manages both blonde and brunette very well, imo.¬†¬†And I¬†think she’s goof’n for the camera here.

  • ccm800

    the terribly lip job has abso NOTHING to do with a cheek injury Chicqa ruined one of hollywood’s best faces and her face was her entire talent.¬†

  • ShayShay

    She’s inspiring me to get a kitschy little holiday sweater. LOL.¬† Anyone putting on a wacky duck lipped pout like that for the cameras, has to be fun to hang out with!

  • random_poster

    You posted this yesterday, and I keep clicking on it because the thumbnail makes me laugh.

  • I recently tried to have a conversation with someone who’d shot her lips up like this. It’s so unattractive and distracting. Stop it, ladies, please.¬†
