    “Will you hold my bouquet for me while I say my wedding vows?”

  • butterflysunita

    Dress is total bridesmaid.  And wrinkled.  Shoes are ugly.  

    • ConnieBV

      Even worse, it fits her like a sack, which really? You couldn’t have this tailored?

  • thecitysleeps

    Wrinkled satin with pleats?  Puffy hair?  Lack of make up?  Anna,  go and try again.

    • Lauren Lynch Fox

      Yeah, why on earth would anyone wear satin?

    • foodycatAlicia

       I agree about the dress, but I like the hair and I think she has plenty of makeup on.

  • MilaXX

    Pretty sure this was last week’s entry on Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids. At least there it wasn’t a wrinkled mess

    • mjude


  • Annabelle Archer

    How unfortunate.

  • prettybigkitty

    Yikes.  Wrinkled Christmas wrap. 

  • jtabz


    That is all.

  • Lily

    It’s a perfectly fine dress, but that fabric wrinkles SO easily.
    However, I follow her on instagram and those are earrings in her hair. Cute.

    • kimmeister

      I’d be afraid the earrings would fall out.

    • makeityourself

      What jeweler in her right mind would suggest wearing two oval-shaped diamond earrings on a the side of a whomped-out hairdo?  I sometimes help my clients adapt diamond brooches into hair ornaments, but this is ridic.  Fail.

      Color is lovely, wrinkles are awful, hooves are also awful.  

  • poggi

    I love her hair clip/accessory.  Everything else is pretty bad.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Oh, see and I was going to say that the earrings in her hair are a little much….

      • margaret meyers

        And I like them.  I love dress clips, too.

  • edc123


  • Fyolette

    wrinkled, dated( seriously, is it Dior I’m looking at?), ill-fitted and shiny. The 1997 Southern prom hair doesn’t exactly help and that brooch… accessory… thing on her side, why? 
    oh, and the shoes are extra bland.
    out if I ever saw one.

    • l_c_ann

      Share your wonder/worry that that’s a Dior, that Dior would make so many odd folds in the skirt and that Dior would choose a fabric that only looks good on a hanger.

  • Jessica Vann

    Are those earrings in her hair?

  • TigerLaverada

    It does have that reworked bridesmaid’s dress vibe to it. I like the color, but don’t like the wrinkly fabric. 

  • Lauren Lynch Fox

    Looks like an 8th grade dance dress.

  • VicksieDo

    Love that color.

  • crash1212

    I like the color of the dress and her hair. That is all. Except…I would think that major designers who create backless dresses would build in support for the girls…why, time after time, with this style of dress does it look like they’re just in there, roaming free and unsupported? I am confused.

    • MilaXX

       feral boobs

      • Sara__B

        That phrase is a keeper. Perfect!

  • fringebenefit

    Actually, oddly, even though this dress is a mess, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look more beautiful.

  • elizonthelam

    Pretty color, horribly fitted and wrinkled. The bridesmaid factor wouldn’t bother me so much if it weren’t a black tie event.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    Ugh. Bad bridesmaid dress. Although SHE is looking lovelier than ever.

  • PastryGoddess

    Why are starlets going to David’s bridal to get their dresses.  Is there a dress shortage we need to know about?

  • Ashleigh Boutelle


  • marilyn

    Wait!  Is she the first bridesmaid who was actually able to wear the dress again?!!!????  All she had to do was shorten it, and voila! a party dress!!!

    Did her 11 year old sister do her hair? Good job. For an 11 year old.

  • Imasewsure

    Change the fabric and I love it. With this satin, not so much

  • Karen Maslowski

    It would be perfect if the dress were made of anything but satin. Otherwise, she looks lovely. 

  • Aidan B

    Hooray, she’s not wearing nude or blush! This is, however, a bridesmaid dress. 

  • librarygrrl64

    The color is fabulous, as is the hair clip, and the makeup is fine. But everything else is a complete mess.

  • Victoria Weinstein

    Jolly Green Giant’s dinner date.

  • hughman

    High School production of “The Boyfriend”. 

  • Snailstsichr

    The back view is cute, but the front view is wearing her instead of vice-versa.

  • Eovaai

    Bridesmaid wrinkly mess.

  • marlie

    Cheap-looking, wrinkled bridesmaid dress, sloppy mass of hair, and boring Minnie Mouse shoes.

  • ankali

    Wrinkled and boring with bad hair. Pretty hair accessories, though.

  • Olivia Vigrabs

    It’s too bad she had to settle for the last dress they had at David’s Bridal.

  • nannypoo

    My grandmother made me the identical dress for my high school jr/sr banquet. She had an iron, so I didn’t have to go looking like I slept in it.

  • another_laura

    oh my freaking gods, NOOOOOOO

  • Sara__B

    Christian Dior? It looks like a high school student’s first attempt at sewing a prom dress.

  • BrooklynBomber

    I think she looks fabulous. I only wish the hem was a scooch longer, and the dress wasn’t wrinkled. But the silhouette is great on her, and I love the hair.

  • MGMcD

    Lovely color and pretty hairbobs. That’s all I got on this one.

  • understateddiva

    Color is gorge, wish the fabric was too.

  • Laurie Landry

    Maybe the bow on the back?
    NOPE, still ugly and unflattering!
    Pretty color for her though.

  • judybrowni

    Gucci? Really?

    More like Robert Hall, 1963.

  • Trisha26

    Wrinkled, looks like a shortened bridesmaid’s dress (St. Patrick’s Day?), shoes are too heavy, hair is pretty but there’s so much of it!

  • Zippypie

    1960s Wrinkled Prom Queen.  Yick!

  • mrspeel2

    Love the earrings in her hair!

  • Lily-Rygh


  • schadenfreudelicious

    i had the full length version of this dress, same color, same fabric, (bow on the butt though) for my maid of honor duties in 1986…apparently you really can wear those bridesmaids dresses again!

  • IAmJ

    This is so sad it makes me wanna cry. The hair is just atrocious and the dress has no redeeming qualities other than the pretty color. It’s unfortunate because she can do so much better. Definitely not a black tie gala look.

  • margaret meyers

    Where the open back meets the waist band does not look well finished.  frankly, this looks like home-sewing, not Dior.

  • Louise Bryan

    I liked so many other people’s comments that I have nothing left to say.

  • Beth Mellone

    Yikes. I think the cut of the dress *could* be interesting, in a vastly different fabric, but this shiny, wrinkly mess? nuh-uh. I would never have pegged it as Dior.

  • frannyprof

    So so so wrong. She & ms. Ritter must have made a pact to show up to this thing in the fugliest getups they could find. Find being the operative word.

  • Monabel

    This is a much better quality of wrinkled shiny than we usually see.

  • cleverlady

    She is just a bit of a lass… 5 feet tall.  It must be hard to find fabulous dresses that are proportional to her height – given that they are designed for folks with at least another 10 inches. Someone made some poor choices for her… Maybe when she gets her RC legs things will get better.  

  • ccm800

    She has such an odd little ET face

  • ThaliaMenninger

    A wrinkly mess. The color is rather drab, as well.

  • Airkisses

    Prom. JUNIOR HIGH prom.

  • Qitkat

    In the original version, there was a red bow, and it was a Christmas dress for a preteen.

  • bertkeeter

    If that dress is DIOR…my name is Doroty Parker! What a rag!

  • bertkeeter

    This dress is a DISGRACE to DIOR! What the hell are these large companies doing to the most venerable names in fashion history? It is beyond sad when a house like DIOR has crap like this with it’s name associated! MERDE, merde, MERDE!

  • quiltrx

    Cheap prom dress, made from some of that shitty satin they keep finding at Mood.

  • Sau-Chih Feng

    I’m trying to figure out how anyone can make their hair look like that, and the best I can come up with is that she’s glue hair extensions to her hairline. Not even my Barbies had hair this bad. 

  • NurseEllen

    That is a gorgeous color on her, but color alone does not a look make.  Anna, give that dress to the next maid of honor you meet, and find something else to wear in that beautiful, saturated forest green, because it makes your eyes smolder.

  • SorayaS

    Neck up- gorgeous; neck down- disaster. I don’t even know where to start. Just burn it all.

  • Verascity

     Ugh… I love her so much, and this color is so great on her, and the shoes are great… but the hair and the fit and the wrinkles are so, so, so bad.

  • RzYoung

    Is she very petite? Something always seems a little off with the scaling. This looks great though, lovely colour and beautiful hair clip

  • E. D.

    Too shiny, too short.

  • decormaven

    Is Dior designing for David’s Bridal now? She got this entire look off Pinterest. All she needs to complete the look is a wine goblet made from a Mason jar.

  • BayTampaBay

    Looks like a bridesmaid dress you rent from a wedding rental store.

    Like the color, as it shows up her reddish hair, but the fabric must be cheap as it is wrinkled! wrinkled! wrinkled.

  • mhleta

    I love this color on her, and the shape isn’t bad either. It’s a fine going-out-to-dinner dress. I honestly think women don’t realize how much those wrinkles show up in a flash photo and this probably looked perfectly adequate in person. This is a “black tie gala” however, so a gown with a bit more pizzazz would have been far better. The hair’s edging toward helmety, but I kind of like the hair jewelry. I give her a 6.5 out of 10 for this. 

  • Kathy_Marlow

    Shiny…wrinkled…PR castoff…

  • Carina

    Her face and hair are gorgeous. The simple makeup really brings out her beauty. Too bad the dress is a disaster.

  • teensmom99

    What can I say?  I like it. She looks great and she looks very real which is refreshing. And to all of you who thinks it looks bridesmaid-y, all I can say is that I wish I had been given something like this to wear when I was a bridesmaid.

  • Anplica Fiore

    The shiney, it hurts!

  • Gabriella M

    Cute. Pity she couldn’t have arrived standing. TLomobile, to the rescue! 

  • Stubenville

    Hmmm. Looks like what Chloe Dao did on PR way back in what, season 3?

  • EEKstl

    Very pretty dress and the color is great on her, but when will ladystars remember that unless they have a personal gay trailing after them with a steamer that satin is NOT their friend on the RC?

  • StillGary

    pretty color on her tho.

  • B_C_J

    The fit of this dress is clearly not good. The area of the bust appears to be constricted by too small arm openings. The only nice things are the color itself and the diamonds in her hair.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    Christmas was last month honey. 

  • peachy

    wrinkles aside, love it. love the color. love the neckline. love the back. love the bow. love the pleating. the shoes are a little iffy — maybe nude next time instead? and please wearing your earrings in your ears and not in your hair. that’s odd. and add a bangle or two.

  • MissFern

    terrible.  wrinkled.  disaster.

  • sweet_potato

    Poor girl.

  • hellkell

    This is what the Fug Girls call “The Evils of Satin,” and for good reason. It’s a great color on her, but the fabric and the shoes are tragic.

  • m0r0


  • Lucas Huntington

    I like the color on her but the dress…not so much.  

  • Danielle Lisle

    Lose the front bow, invest in an iron.

  • Lilak

    Did she borrow this from a slightly larger somebody who’d already been wearing it for a few hours?

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Cheap prom dress and her BFF did her hair.

  • jmorino08

    Are those earrings in her hair?

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Bridesmaid who just got back from having wrinkled sex in the limo with a groomsman.

  • guest2visits

    I want to like it; but it’s kind of a mess.  Pretty girl, pretty color and material, but it’s massively wrinkled and it’s not fitted; needs
    some extra length too, to give the satin some elegance.

  • kathrineb

    She seems like a sweet girl. I just can’t abide the hair. It looks like it was from the night before.

  • kvlm

    All I see are wrinkles.
