    She’s got a banging body.  Why hide it in that shapeless top?

  • gabbilevy

    Big improvement over yesterday’s granny dress. She looks pretty and comfortable.

  • Sobaika

    She is beautiful. This style tends to look better on straight-up-and-down types, and I don’t like how the pretty hem pools at her feet, but I can’t say that she looks bad.

  • She’s so beautiful. I love this dress. I am also faintly wondering if she is pregnant?

    • Annabelle Archer

      Hmmmm.. that would explain her recent challenges with hips and fitting. Regardless, this is lovely progress, no?

    • lovelyivy

       I was thinking the same thing- and then I felt guilty for being on bumpwatch (TM some smart person at the Jezebel blog).

      • I know. But she is so radiant and has been having issues with dresses fitting around her middle lately and she seems to be in a happy relationship…

    • Alyssa Stanfield

      The number of loose fitting dresses she’s been wearing recently and other various fitting issues would explain that. Either that, or she’s just not wanting to flatter her body recently. But this dress is a huge improvement!

    • Ha!  That’s funny, because I was just about to say there’s something a little matronly about this dress.

  • Dot

    Eh. Not the most flattering — I’m more interested in figuring out if that’s the runway model’s underwear I see.

    • Yep. It sure is. The distinct outline of her frillies. Oops. Of course, you can also faintly make out the shape of Rosario’s bra in the first couple of pics, as well.

      • Kristin McNamara

        BUT I will give the edge on wearing this dress more successfully to Rosario, as her skin color looks soooooooooo much better against this gown than does the model’s. 

        • Sooooo true! The model is too pale skinned to do it justice.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Oooh, this I love. She is looking good and making it look easy. Much improved Ro.

  • FrayedMachine

    I like it, I just don’t think the length is appropriate for her. If the skirt were shorter and more form fitting it’d be a bigger hit for me. Same with the top’s billowing features being simplified a bit more but it’s not so bad that it irks me.

  • I like it but it’s too long.

  • MilaXX

    Better than her previous appearance on the blog, but she can do better.

  • appliquer

    Wearing a dress for someone much taller.

  • Natalie Bryan

    This feels kind of Golden Girls to me.

    • SaoirseLee

      Dorothy Zbornak on another last chance date with Stan?

    • ballerinawithagun

      Yes, total time warp.

  • Puck Thornton

    Rosario is a beautiful woman but I feel that since she started dating an older man she’s dressing his age.

  • VicksieDo

    LOVE the pop of color at the hem. Oh, and happy equals pretty!

  • Judy_J

    I’m not loving this.  It’s too long…she’s standing in a pink puddle.

  • EditKitten


  • Trisha26

    She looks lovely – pretty dress, just a little long. (Glad she’s not wearing the see-through catwalk version.)

  • H3ff

    She looks great, but that dress is hella unflattering.

  • nannypoo

    Hideous. And even worse on the model, with her mismatched boobs and tiny visible underpants.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    She’s pretty, dress is BORING!

  • PrunellaV

    No. It looks matronly on her and like she stood in punch.

  • I don’t usually love these types of dresses, but she is really working it and looks great.

  • E. D.

    Too long, but that’s the only complaint.

  • On chesty girls, these types of dresses tend to look shapeless on top. R-Daw is no exception.

  •  I wish it weren’t quite so blousy on the top, and I wish she hadn’t matched her earrings and lipstick to the dress. But not bad overall.

  • Hetha Innis

    Angelina Jolie called. She wants her dress back. 

  • The top is a little too loose for my taste, but the dress is pretty nonetheless. There’s a sexy 70s vibe to it, too. 

  • forward_slash_PRS

    Is she standing in someone’s sadly-decorated kitchen?

  • l_c_ann

    Bless her, she made a too shear dress much more appropriate and looks good.  (The dress, however, deserves better than having its hem dragged acrosss a floor.)

  • Imasewsure

    Pretty on the model but don’t like the look or the fit on our girl. Looks like melting ice cream and the top is so boring.

  • nnbb


  • RzYoung

    I really like how the earrings and makeup echo the pink at the bottom of the dress but generally i’m not keen on the look, it’s a bit ‘grand dame’

  • jenno1013

    Meh. The gown is too long for Rosario (hence pooling), and all the design interest falls below her knees.  Shoulders to knees it looks like a big sweatshirt (…OK, with glitter).  I know this is Whiteboard not In-or-Out, but, Out.

  • librarygrrl64

    I feel like she is having some issues with her figure lately (which is ridiculous because it is lovely, IMO) since her last few outings have featured such matronly, ill-fitting, unflattering choices. Rosario, you are young and beautiful; work it!

  • barbarienne

    With the flat hair and the shapeless dress, she looks to be taking a page from Angelina Jolie’s book. At least Rosario is smiling.
