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 :(

      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!!!”

    • Ben Smith

      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.

      • Sarah

        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.

      • Tanya Wade

        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.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      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

    • Kelly Sowers

      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 Luján

      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:(

    • Victoria Weinstein

      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?

    • Kiltdntiltd

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

    • Gabriella M

      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. 

      • Heather

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

        • Gabriella M

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

          • Heather


    • 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. 

    • foodycatAlicia

      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. 

    • Sarah Caponigro

      Agreed. Love the sweater. Hate the hair.

    • MissMariRose


    • Cindy Bartlett Zigler

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

    • Sarah V.

      The whole thing gives me a sad.

    • Elizabeth

      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. 

    • kingderella

      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…

    • Dana WhatTheFrock

      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

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      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.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      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. 

    • marlie

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

    • Vera

      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. . . .

    • Kim Baker Vidas Davey-Irvin

      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.

    • Fatima Siddique

      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.

    • Martha Hicks Leta

      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.
