  • Kathy_Marlow if the bodice fit her better and the pants weren’t so poorly fitted..maybe.  I think the only thing I’m even ok with is her makeup..and that’s only OK.  She’s beautiful, someone needs to help her!

    • She is beautiful, but I think she needs to go back to the V or Firefly days and the way she wore her hair and makeup then when she went out in public.  I had to do a double-take on a few of those pulled back shots because she looks just like Ashley Judd.  Nothin wrong with Ashley Judd, but Morena is so capable of being that much more strikingly gorgeous. 

      Not sure what’s going on here, but the whole outfit is a bit on the frumpy side (add sleeves and Helen Mirren might look amazing in it) and then the makeup is downplaying her beauty. 

      • Kathy_Marlow

         I couldn’t agree with you more.  She could knock people dead with her looks and this is not even close to her possibilities.  She does resemble Ashley Judd in these photos, weird!

      • poggi

        I thought Ashley Judd too and thought tthat this looks pretty good for her.  But for Morena Baccarin, no. Not good enough.

      • PaulaBerman

         Did she have to cut her hair so that she would look frumpy on Homeland so as not to upstage Claire Danes? I HATE her hair! She was the most beautiful woman on TV in the days of Firefly. She is not dressing or styling to best effect at all.

  • Lovely pantsuit, but I cannot abide by white shoes, unless you’re a nurse or a porn star. A metallic sandal would have looked much nicer.

  • Sobaika

    I really like her but her fashion choices are never even close to a good idea.

    A white stone encrusted corset jumpsuit with white sandals? Really?

    •  Let me count the BAD about this… wait, I cannot count that high.  Awful, just awful.

  • Certainly a major improvement for her. She looks lovely. The only wrong notes are the hem length on those pants and the badly positioned hip drape piece. Otherwise, she looks stellar.

    • Jecca2244

      and nice that she is getting clothes from bigger brands. not that smaller brands aren’t amazing and vital to the future of fashion. but bigger brands have the power to tailor the look to perfection and possible offer her a wider range of styles. I’d argue the pants are a little too baggy here in the crotch area, but other than that she looks awesome. 

      • Now that you point it out, yeah, the crotch seam needs a tiny adjustment. But I’m just grateful hat she’s got a hairstyle that is maximizing her luminously lovely face.

    • Call me Bee

      Agree.  Wouldn’t this outfit just rock if she’d worn a blazer of some kind (well….and hemmed her pants??)

    • Flora O

       LOVE this look. She looks stunning. I agree with the hem, but it’s a minor, forgivable quibble.

    • MissAmynae

      Agreed. hem the pants, different (non-white) shoes, and I think this is one of her best. Plays up her shoulders beautifully, and nothing is distracting from that face.  

  • Oh, honey, no.

  • Okay wowwwwwww.  I cannot get behind those pants.  They look like beachy yoga pants and the shoes are not helping.  Hellz to the no. 

  • Solokitty

    Hated this.  Thought of sex-deprived Junior Leaguer at the country club. 

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    Oh come on here, even I have people who will hem my pants if I don’t want to do it myself. 

    • BrooklynBomber


  • mjude

    i am sorry…wtf

    • BrooklynBomber

      that says it all.

  • Bodice too tight, pants too big, lips are too damn pink and don’t really help the look… she’s Morena Baccarin and she’s looking a little dull, that’s something veryveryvery odd.

  • Puck Thornton

    From the waist up clean and pretty, from the waist down Blanche Devereaux.

  • 3boysful

    I think she looks lovely, but she needs a hem job and a different colored shoe.

    I think it’s interesting how “soft” her longer hair makes her look here (and on Homeland).  She had a much more intimidating look with the shorter hair on that sci-fi thing–V?

  • sockandaphone

    i like it from the waist up. those pants are pretty terrible. Also this is awfully off-season!

  • The pants are too long and I fiercely hate the shoes, but there’s a germ of a good idea there. Maybe if there wasn’t quite so much around her waist…

  • Monday1900

    Is this National Hideous Dress Day or something?  It’s like a parade of awful today!  The top of this looks like it’s made of molded bra cup material with pearls on it.  Not fetching!

  • That is one horrifying pantsuit.

  • Natalie Bryan

    The top of that pantsuit looks like bubble wrap.

  • butterflysunita

    Nothing else to say.  

  • Laylalola

    She and Olivia Munn are so stunning, captivating in motion on their TV shows but for some strange reason that’s never captured at all in their still photos.

  • She’s got no waist in that thing, and you know she does. 

  • MilaXX

    I like this from the waist up.  From the waist down the pants look too big & the shoes are a big misstep.

  • No, Morena, no.

  • filmcricket

    She practically has Christina Hendricks-level Can’t Dress Myself Disease, with far less excuse as she is much closer to sample size. I get that so far she probably hasn’t had top designers throwing their wares at her, but come. On. This is just terrible.

  • Loved the top, but then I scrolled down to the waistband and pants… so sorry, but NO. 

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Can we, as a nation, just say “NO” to jumpsuits?

    •  Well, I will say no. I hate them.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      let’s make that an international no!


  • I think this shape would have been better on Lena Dunham. Structured bodice, flat-front drapey pants.

  • mhleta

    That is one very very expensive mess.

  • Are there no tailors left in Hollywood?  *flail*

  • nerdykitten

    Hem those pants please!

  • Was someone at Karan Atelier participating in an unconventional materials challenge?

  • librarygrrl64

    The seeds of a good idea are here. The basic style and color are great for her. I don’t love the hair, but sleek was probably a good choice here. The clutch is fine, jewelry is fine. But the pants are too long and wide, and the shoes are abominable.

  • Maybe she pulled on those pants after she got married in a pool… see her hair’s slicked back still and everything….. XP

  • She needs to talk to Josh Whedon and see if she can get her Inara wardrobe, at least to borrow for red carpet events. 

    • AnnPopovic

       SSSOOOOOOO agree with this! Lack of hair makes her chin look short and that outfit’s just…a nightmare. She is SUCH a beautiful woman and this makes her look like she’s one of those hiddy housewives that we can’t seem to get rid of, the ones that somehow bought themselves a television show and are now … cloning themselves in a dingy basement in New Jersey somewhere out of leftover chicken and discarded Loreal products.

  • aquamarine17

    i saw her in a film (forget the title) she was in before Homeland and she had long hair with not much makeup. I thought she was a knockout beauty that way. i never liked her short hair in the Homeland role. here i am not crazy at all about the makeup (sort of harsh, bad lipstick color, too, nor the pantsuit. sometimes with a short haircut, women look better with more covered up shoulders and even a high neck on the clothes. I think that would help. I wonder if she is growing out her hair. It is so ho-hum, IMO, short

  • If the cups don’t fit, you must… whatever.

    • kimmeister

       . . . not wear it?

  • kimmeister

    Well, as strapless jumpsuits go, this one is working slightly better than Lena’s, but the fit is still off.  And it’s still a strapless jumpsuit.

  • What the HELL? No one noticed that her pants were 3 inches too long before she stepped outside?

  • Jennifer Coleman

    She’s too fabulous for this outfit.

  • ojosazules


  • Adriana_Paula

    Those shoes need to go back to Boca.

  • Qitkat

    She is so pretty, but ouch to the pants length. I would trip headlong and fall into Matt Bomer’s lap!

  • ThaliaMenninger

    She’s stunningly beautiful, and yet THIS is what she puts on? 

  • There seems to be a titscrepancy between the size of the cups and the actual breasts filling them. Looks dreadfully uncomfortable, as well as makes her look square, which, iirc from Firefly, she is certainly not. With a hem and a better fitted bodice, this could’ve been a werq. 

  • demidaemon

    This looks very Golden Girls to me.

  • jmorino08

    Very fancy tampon costume.

  • She is such a beautiful woman.  She deserves so much better than “what the hell is that thing she’s wearing?”

  • barbarienne

    She’s one of the most stunning women on the planet (or off the planet, yo), but the size or proportions or something are wrong in this bodice. At the very least, if one is going to wear highly-defined boob cups, they should be the right size for the boobs they are cupping.

  • anotherkate

    WHYYYYYY Morena Baccarin? Why do you insist on wearing unflattering* jumpsuits?

    *Yes, I realize that most jumpsuits are, but with a body like hers I’m SURE she could find some flattering ones.

  • quiltrx

    She is SO beautiful. Full stop.

    Now…bodice is great, but it all goes wrong south of there.  Ladypants are great, but these are too voluminous for such a sculpted bodice.  And the shoes are way too poolside.

  • Trisha26

    Hem the pants & different shoes – or at least not Dr. Scholl orthopedic sandals.

  • I can appreciate the concept but the execution is really bad. Terrible fit from top to bottom. And the lipstick is really jarring as well.

  • j_anson

    WHAT. NO.

  • Valerie Jones

    So, to summarize, welcome to “Bridal Yoga,” starring Ashley Judd, featuring Pinky Lipstick, Junior League Hair and Continuous Eyeliner. Special guest appearance by Rue McClanahan’s shoes.

  • RzYoung

    I’m getting bored of seeing the top 1/3rd of her naked body. Someone once obviously told her she has beautiful shoulders and should show them off as much as possible.

  • Where did her waist go?

    • Fred Vaughn

      The baby did it. That said, gotta give it to her for showing up with a NOT-starved-looking post-baby body.

  • She’s got the Gap of Rohan between her boob cups. Looks odd.

  • That is just plain awful. The bodice, the pants, the hem, ugh.

  • She needs a hem, no to the white shoes, and that sash is just sad.

  • warnerave

    she just doesn’t know how to dress well

  • guest2visits

    Another odd jumpsuit.

  • ZnSD

    She looks like an alien from MIB4
