    if the object was to look like your torso and neck are covered by a virulent strain of black mold i would say she succeeded…

  • Annabelle Archer

    Loose the neck piece and the black netting and you might have a solid 6 of a dress.

    • out for a walk

      Or a solid 6 of a high-waisted skirt?

  • Lord I am showing my age. When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was Cheryl Tiegs.

    • Imasewsure

      Oh my god me too!!! On Cheryl though this dress would have been almost forgivable (not attractive, but forgivable)

    • Right on target.  Cheryl Tiegs it is.  

  • conniemd

    I don’t actually mind the top and the lace. What I don’t like is the fit around the stomach and hips which makes her look fat.

    • maygoon

       Uhmmm, I think you could say that the fit isn’t as flattering as it should be or maybe that the shape isn’t the best for her, but it would take a lot more than an ill-fitting dress to make her look fat. 

    • I agree. It’s not like she IS fat, but this dress actually makes her look like that..it’s not really HER dress

    • OK, time to close out of the pro-ANA websites and get thee to a shrink immediately. 

  • Isana Leshchinskaya

    great face and hair, terrible from the neck through torso, lovely clutch. so, scrolldown fugglecoaster.

  • kimmeister

    She looks like she’s being strangled by black thorns.

    Makeup looks great though.

  • Catherine McCord

    she should send this dress to JLo

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Catherine Zeta-Jones called. She wants her dress back.

  • Would that collar/neck thing not drive you berserk!?
    Lace and then lace and then lace and oh yeah Mermaid!

    • Kayceed

      Ooh, a game for fashionistas – instead of duck, duck, goose, we have lace, lace, mermaid!

  • IAmJ

    She’s so pretty and the makeup is the bomb. This dress is not her friend, though. Makes her look hippy which I know she isn’t.

    • Alyssa

      Makeup is good, and she is so pretty & this dress isn’t showing that off!

  • felicia zuniga

    I’d rather see some commentary on what her bff Phoebe Tonkin wore… Because that has me confused.

  • not the best mermaid shape,  does this girl have a waist or not? if not, then choose an empire waist instead of mermaid.

  • It shortens her neck, flattens her boobs and widens her waist. Also, I HATE exposed zippers on anything other than maybe streetwear. You’ve got evening gown and metal zipper, it’s like prime rib and ketchup. Ew.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Hate the exposed zippers! Yes, prime rib and ketchup, the waiter would give you a wilting glare.

  • Why those earrings with this dress?  They’re nearly invisible.

  • Imasewsure

    Very appropriate for a zombie movie since it looks like the Black Death climbing up her neck…. U.G.L.Y.

  • Introspective

    So her top half is ready for her free skate at the ’98 winter olympics and her bottom half is ready to walk down the aisle as the corpse bride.

    Neither half flatters nor makes any sense. Go home and try again girl.

  • Pretty girl, hideous dress. Just hideous. There is not one element worth saving.

  • bertkeeter

    Boring! It was a better bridal dress before she dyed it black!

  • VicksieDo

    I want her eyes…but not that dress…

  • Beautiful, but is it too formal for the occasion?

  • MilaXX

    the piece across the neck looks like it’s trying to choke her.

  • Shame on Philip Armstrong for that ripply zipper!That’s a quality control problem that could have been avoided with a strip of interfacing on the fashion fabric. The zipper has rippled because the fashion fabric has srtetched and zippers don’t.

    • Jackie4g

      Wouldn’t you think for the money that dress probably cost that they could set a damn zipper? I saw those ripples and  became outraged. It’s not like they don’t have any black tricot interfacing  around. Shoddy workmanship.

  • l_c_ann

    The question of who is appropriately dressed emerges in the last photo of her glancing over her shoulder as Miss torn stockings and dirty top discusses the world with Mr shredded blue jean cuffs as the three await entry, all  standing on the same red carpet.

    • PrunellaV

      Aw, give them a break. You try keeping up your wardrobe as a zombie!

  • Alyssa

    I quite like her as an actress (mostly because she was awesome in I Am Number Four, and I love that book series!), but this is not as flattering as she thought it was. Ditch the extensions & get a new stylist!

  • quiltrx

    This just looks really awkward and uncomfortable.  This might be Cher’s dress, but no one else’s.

  • 3boysful

     I know  ya’ll will toss rotten tomatoes my way, but I don’t mind the black fungus top.  *duck-n-cover*
    I cannot, however, abide the MORE BLACK LACE.  Perhaps a nice black crepe for the skirt? 

  • ccm800

     yeah, no.

  • She’s pretty!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Not flattering in the least.  

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    How she manages to look like a different successful starlet (Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, and Kristen Stewart) with each new angle is fascinating. Not great for her career unless she wants to be a stunt double. 

    That’s an exorcism dress.

  • unbornfawn

    That’s unflattering. Straight on I can’t see any of her curves. It looks like the lace has crawled up and is trying to choke her. 

    • Jackie4g

      There’s not even a hint of a waist. Unflattering is the word.

    • kschwarting

      I should have read down first–I completely agree about the choker.  It’s the worst part of a no good, very bad dress.

  • Sara__B

    Lace + illusion netting + visible zipper + mermaid hem = why did this lovely young woman choose to wear this mess?

  • Elleachaudaucul

    That is one ugly dress.

  • Scarlet39

    I kind of like the top, but the skirt and that zipper are hideous.

  • Little_Olive

    I feel like I have seen this dress before. When I was little (the 80s). In white, maybe?

  • Kathy_Marlow

    I really, REALLY despise the zipper with the nude mesh, just make it a halter already and be done with it. 

  • Ummm…No.  Just no.

  • Are those zombies in the last picture?!

    • Stubenville

      Zombies, production assistants… tomato, tomahto.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Then, suddenly, the dress started to grow…

  • Kristy Evans

    I want to like this, but just looking at that lace on her neck is making me itchy. There is no way she wouldn’t want to rip that shit off halfway through the night.

    • kschwarting

      That was the first thing I saw, too.  She looks like she’s being literally choked by her lace choker.

    • Tracy_Flick

       ITA, it looks incredibly uncomfortable. Like the collar is a sentient being, ever so slowly choking her.

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Where’s Uncle Nick when you need him: “Look at my whickety whack!”

  • Zippypie

    Not to be too gross, but I’ve had a fungal infection in my sinuses for months and I can imagine that it looks very similarly to the bodice of this dress.

    I want to go down to the garment district right now, to every fabric store, and burn all the illusion netting.  RIGHT. NOW.

    • Stubenville

      I’ll testify that it was an accident. (Wear something flame retardant.)

  • MoHub

    Makes her look positively shapeless, and I’m sure she isn’t.

  • alyce1213

    She has pretty hair.  There is nothing, absolutely nothing good about this dress, it’s just cheap and hideous.

  • marilyn

    Yawn.  The dress does nothing for her shape.  No one is blown away by no bra, and low cut front.  Black lace has been done so much it is also boring.  Yawn.

  • Jill Morino

    Flesh eating bacteria in dress form.

  • MissAmynae

    There’s some fungus among us! and its a turtleneck.

  • “Help! My dress is trying to eat me!”

  • Stubenville

    Ugh – a different neckline would have been a 100% improvement. And what does she have in the comically tiny clutch? One key?

  • Help! I’m being strangled!

  • libraangel

    Something is wrong at the top: doesn’t flatter her at all.

  • Great face of makeup: I almost couldn’t recognize her, though! 

    As for the dress, my main gripe is how short-waisted her torso looks: if the sheer bodice was instead 3 inches longer before joining that skirt, the effect would be much more proportional. As is, it kinda makes her look thick-waisted, since the skirt comes above her natural waist.
