    Twee little cupcake topper.

    First time I’ve ever seen a red carpet for a girl’s First Communion.

    •  Right?  Plus, honey, those seriously over-painted, way too red lips?  Not Working At All.

      • fursa_saida

        The thing that mystifies me is that her lipstick ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE THAT. As in, on her show it looks like that. I mean, it’s not always so heavy/bright, it’s usually glossier, but it’s always painted outside the lines, WHY WHY WHY. It’s not like she has tiny lips.

    • exactly what i thought!

    • 3boysful

       Exactly.  This is the communicant daughter of the wealthiest family in town.

    • Jill Morino


      • ConnieBV

        Yep, paging T swift!

  • MilaXX

    She looks like a giant toddlers & tiaras contestant. The proportions  on the dress are odd and the makeup is frightening paired with that twee, white dress.

    •  Yeah that dress is WAY too cutsey-poo for her, or the particular venue.

      • MilaXX

         That dress and makeup veers into Whatever happened to Baby Jane territory.

        • ‘But cha ARE, Holland, ya ARE!”

          • zenobar

            Bowing.  Bowing and scraping to you, dear sir.  (My mother and sister and I holler this dramatically to each other whenever it seems even remotely fitting.)

          • T’weren’t nuthin’ Ma’am.

    • Anathema_Device

       The shoulders are too small on her and the neckline is riding too high. Hell, I can barely lift my arms just looking at her!

      • Carly Warnock

        the cap sleeve here is very bad.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      It’s Honey Boo-Boo!!!

    • Introspective

      i saw this and thought she looks like a plastic head & a crocheted body sitting atop an extra toilet roll in my grandma’s bathroom. 

      so i guess we arent in disagreement that this is a fail.

  • Annabelle Archer

    That is unfortunate, unflattering and pretty much just the pentacle of “No.” 

  • Sara__B

    I think I wore that dress (in a slightly different color) at my big sister’s wedding. In 1962. I was 10.

  • Cute enough, but those shoes are unforgivable.  They look like something on the clearance rack at Kmart.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Whenever I see shoes like this, it reminds me of the scene in Forrest Gump when Jenny is cracked out and stands on the balcony of that hotel (?) room and almost falls off.  I do quite like the model’s shoes, though.

  • IAmJ

    Hers will be the cutest party in the whole kindergarten!

  • schadenfreudelicious

    only swan necked girls need apply…..

    • Lilak

      …. and swan armed and swan legged (as it were).

  • hmariec19


  • In_Stitches

    The skirt looks like it’s covered with Easter-basket filler.  

  • conniemd

    No grown woman should wear that dress. EVER

  • Zippypie

    Communion dress.  She just needs a veil and a big ass sparkly cross.  What a horrible rag!

  • decormaven

    That’s just about at clown makeup status. Hurry, TLO, please post a Pretty of the Day. Anything to soothe the jangled nerves after these last two makeup disasters. 

  • I wanted a dress like that… when I was 5.

  • MoHub

    Looks like a take on a 1950s 4-year-old’s party dress—when we used to actually dress up for birthday parties. Also, Mom’s 1950s lipstick.

    • BrooklynBomber

      We had the same thought (see my comment above).

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    “I’ve written a letter to Daddy.  His address is Heaven above…”

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Everyone has pretty much covered the dress.  The shoes are hidy too.  I hate what’s going on with alot of the shoes right now. 

  • AceOn6

    No, just no. The makeup is wrong, the hair is wrong, the two tone dress doesn’t work, and the shoes are too clunky for the look. I’d love the top half of the dress with some black tuxedo pants, though.

  • marilyn

    If she was wearing cowgirl boots, this would be great for getting married on the ranch.  Otherwise, it is okay for a tween to wear.  

  • Imasewsure

    Wow awful head to toe but she does have very pretty eyes (and I have no idea who she is although I’m assuming she is in this movie)

  • Imasewsure

    Madonna in her day could have rocked this dress with commando/hooker boots and a bunch of chains and crosses… as is, it just blows

  • gabbilevy

    Everything about this screams “I’m living out my dream of growing up to be a movie star! The dream I’ve had since I was 5!” Hopefully some underemployed stylist will take pity and help her out.

  • Tracy_Flick

    I’m impressed, most girls don’t get to wear their first communion dress again. And the disco stripper platforms were quite the… contrasting choice.

  • LadyCelia


  • mhleta

    I have to believe that people in warmer climates forget how dear color is to those of us in the cold come the deep freeze of winter. I never thought I could hate white, but this fashion season has made me.


  • E. D.

    Hate the shoes.

  • BrooklynBomber

    It’s my birthday. I’m 4!

  • Was she trying to be ironic? For my zombie comedy, I’ll veer as far away from that as possible with my style…

  • subwaycars

    I think she did something to her face ):

    Anyway, I actually quite like the top half, but the bottom especially is a mess, and god damn but color people. Why is it so hard? The hair/make-up/shoes are bad too ):

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Her head is on backwards!

  • Trisha26

    Princess First Communion.

  • Dot

    Is that even the same dress that the model is wearing? They look incredibly dissimilar. 

    • l_c_ann

      Neither wearer is flattered the least little bit by the dress(?es).

  • B_C_J

    There is a disconnect between the fabrics that make up the  top and the bottom of this outfit and therefore it lacks cohesion. The intensity of the lip is a bit much and the shoes look cheap. The clutch is attractive.

  • MissAmynae

    Ugh, no. Just no.

  • Stubenville

    Too short to be a quinceanera dress, yet that’s what comes to mind. Hate the lip, think the clutch is the only cute thing about this outfit.

  • Louise Bryan

    Two dresses were crossbred and this is the result…

  • libraangel

    I am in a love/hate relationship with this dress, this girl, these shoes.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    Girl that is not your shade of lipstick. 

  • Wow, that really, really doesn’t suit her.

  • demidaemon

    This is the ugliest ice-skating outfit I have ever seen.

  • quiltrx

    It’s weird…I like the bodice, and i like the skirt….but NOT together.  The bodice goes with a slimmer silhouette, and the skirt needs a lower waist and some other bodice (I’m thinking very simple, sleeveless, NOT high-necked.)

  • And here I was thinking that the contrasting tones of white in the dress was the MAJOR flaw.

    Clearly I have much to learn from elder bitter kittens…

  • kolokOlchik


  • guest2visits

    This is boxy, needs to be fitted better. Removing the neck and the sleeves would make this less little-girlish.

  • Northern_Light_27

    Pack this dress up and send it to someone who does the proper batshit accessorizing with Gothic Lolita, like Kerli. A few decapitated stuffed animals stuck on it and I’m sure it would be just perfect.
