      Twee little cupcake topper.

    • Anathema_Device

      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.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         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.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            ‘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.)

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              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.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/AOBSJV6HLYYU7YOR34YW5KOMSE Jane

      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. 

    • http://aldonsusi.blogspot.com/ Susi R

      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.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ 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. 

    • http://twitter.com/Eovaai Eovaai

      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…

      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.
