Olivia Munn in Bird by Juicy Couture

Posted on February 20, 2013

Olivia Munn’s face… we just don’t get it.


Olivia Munn attends the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture Celebration of the 2013 Vanities Calendar in a Bird by Juicy Couture halter dress paired with a Juicy Couture clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps.

Bird by Juicy Couture Gale Asymmetrical Pleated Halter Dress. Juicy Couture Beaded Disco Clutch. Jean-Michel Cazabat Ophelia Pumps.

Cute dress, by the way. Maybe a bit too much pleating for such a small skirt, but still. Great color, boldly striking. No complaints here.

Now about that face…

Come on, that’s not a … difficult face by any stretch of the imagination. Slap a little color on it, do some blending, and you’re good to go. And yet, for some reason, she seems to have tremendous trouble getting makeup to stick to it. Or in this case, getting makeup to stick to it in the right proportions and colors. In other words, she’s either wildly underdone half the time, or she’s got total DIY-in-a-poorly-lit-bathroom face. We don’t get it. Three words that every ladystar needs to remember, even as the rest of the world is telling her how hot she is:


Seriously, honey. Pay a gay to set your face for you the next time you’re heading out. You’ll thank us for it when you see the pictures and you don’t look like you slept face-down on a pillow and just woke up.

    “PAY A GAY.”  Y’all should trademark that.

    • 3boysful

       I think that could be the new title for really bad posts–posts of really bad clothes/hair, that is!

      • mskgb

        Two potential titles here:

        “Pay a Gay.”
        “Paid a Gay!” for those who have clearly recruited professional help after months/years on the “Pay a Gay” pages.

        There’s also room for “Honey, Those Aren’t Your Gays” and “Fire Your Gays.”

  • Stubenville

    It’s a little “classy hooker”, no?

    • VeryClaire

      without the class

    •  The open mouthed poses aren’t helping dispel that notion one bit.

    • MK03

      Well, that is her trademark…

  • joancarol

    If you didn’t say who this was, I’d have no idea. Most unflattering face ever.

    • RebeccaKW

       That pic, looking back over the shoulder.  Holy cow.  The others are unflattering, but that one is horrifying.

      • Alyssa

        Yeah, she should use that pic as a reminder never to pose like that!

  • VeryClaire

    That dress screams “trying too hard” to me. It is cute on the model, but apparently Olivia needed to remind everyone of her every available body part.

  • teensmom99

    All set for the revival of 42nd Street.

    •  Or cocktail waitressing at a dive on 42nd street.

  • BrooklynBomber

    terrible dress on her.

    • 3boysful

       I agree–the proportions are off.  The skirt’s too short, the top makes her look wiiiiide.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like any of this. The dress reads cigarette girl, the makeup is bad, the hair is nothing and the shoes & bag look generic. She needs a stylist badly. She’s got all the right parts, but every RC looks like she’s wearing the kmart collection and wet n’wild makeup.

  • afabulous50

    The words “Juicy” and “Couture” simply do NOT go together.

    • demidaemon

      Agree 10000%. Everytime I had to read that phrase on this page, I winced and died a little inside.

  • I look like Olivia Munn, which is really easy to do when you have the same ethnic background. Wait, let me clarify, my FACE looks like hers. I think our olive skin changes the color of makeup, thus limiting our choices. Also, small eyes with small double lids- she totally filled hers in with eyeliner here, making them completely invisible. But it’s tough to know what to do. I need a gay.

    • Amelia

       gel liner applied with the tiniest craft store chisel brush you can find (I got mine at michaels).  It helps you get a fine enough line that you can actually wear liner without it filling up all your lid space.  Normal eyeliner brushes are all too fat to get a precise enough line and the craft store options are much cheaper.

  • lehen

    she looks stoned

    • MissMariRose

       I was going to say the same thing.

    •  I was thinking the same thing, actually.

    • christinewithanx

       Yep, high as a kite.

      • joancarol

        Her left eye looks Bionic.

  • Something about this is giving me “slutty 1960s airplane stewardess.”

  • elemspbee

    Huh, you think that dress is cute? I know her schtick is sexi, and she is that indeed. She’s hot. But this is not her dress. snack vendor at a ball park with a side job look.

    • DeborahJozayt

      Cigarettes? Cigarettes anyone? Cigars and novelties also!

  • Annabelle Archer

    She is just challenged in general. She’s a step away from a Southern gracing of ‘Bless her heart’, which is not a compliment. 

  • merciblahblah

    My irrational dislike of her (much like my irrational dislike of T Swift and Katherine Heigel) is clouding my ability to say anything other than wash yo face, get your hair out of the yoga bun, and find a different dress. Oh, and build a bridge and get OVER yourself.

    • capybara_cafe

       She has to put her boobs out there to distract from the fact that she’s not a real celebrity.

  • gabbilevy

    The proportions on the dress (and the makeup) are just not working.

  • Guys, take a look at the runway shots you’ve got posted.  This is the trend.  Light make-up, emphasis on lips.  It won’t last long.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    I don’t know how paying a gay would help those dead eyes of hers.

    And that dress is full-on Boobs Legsly.

  • nannypoo

    The proportions of the dress work on the model who has less boobage than Olivia. On Olivia, with more mass on the top, there needs to be more on the bottom to balance it. And as for the makeup, I am about to go into the bathroom and apply my own and I am confident I will do a better job than we see here. 

  • jmorino08

    Maybe the 15-degree temps I’m dealing with are clouding my judgement, but that just doesn’t seem like a enough dress for a grown woman. Slap is on a mini-starlet and it’s adorable. On her it just reads “formal ice skating costume” to me. Also, she shouldn’t pull her hair back like that. Too severe for her round face.

  • Lilithcat

    She clearly got lost on her way to the ice skating rink.

  • TAGinMO

    Wow. I’m really only familiar with her from The Newsroom and her recent guest stint on New Girl, and I always thought she looked striking and sexy on TV. And then she’s unrecognizable when she pops up on the red carpet. “PAY A GAY,” indeed.

    • poggi

      Until you said that, I totally forgot about her on the New Girl.  She looked so pretty there and far less hard and harsh (even though she was playing a stripper). 

    • barbarienne

       Ah, but TV shows have whole tribes of gays on staff. They never want their stars to look like this.

  • mjude

    “pay a gay”……BRILLIANT

  • decormaven

    There is not one appealing thing about this look- not the styling, not the hair, not the makeup- nothing. And as Pants_are_a_must
    so aptly notes, a whole plethora of gays can’t change those dead orbs. Baby dolls with fixed stares have more life in them than the vibe emanating from those sockets.

  • crash1212

    If someone was doing a master class on how to make a beautiful woman look less so, WIN. She should take the lipstick and burn it and then fire any/all people who signed off on this make-up and then PAY A GAY! 

  • Tatiana Luján

    Boobs or legs, both displayed at the same time make you look vulgar.

  • Deedles

    Cigarette girl.

  • This dress looks like it belongs on a chorus girl in Anything Goes.

  • n a

    this dress reads cigarette girl to me… (and yea, what’s with the vamp face?? um…?)

  • l_c_ann

    Strange waist line….because to get the fabric over her chest, the waist panel gets pulled two inches up in front.  (Please tell me this isn’t going to lead to an Empire trend.)

  • margaret meyers

    That dress does not fit her.  Is she oddly tall or is it badly designed?  The high waist interferes with the way the shawl collar lapels fall.  The skirt looks ridiculously short and theway the waist is being pulled up makes her look thick –It’s as if she put on a petite size by mistake. 

  • SugarSnap108

    Yes, the face is problematic. Then there’s the fact she’s wearing  Juicy Couture.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Can’t get over the facial expressions, especially the one where she’s looking over her shoulder. Like others have said this really looks like a Rockette’s costume gone wrong.

  • She looks like she just smoked a doob in the limo.

  • Her lipstick is atrocious.  Simply atrocious.

  • melanie0866

    I hate the dress.  Looks very Charlotte Russe to me. 

  • I couldn’t agree more with y’all!  PAY A GAY! Her face always looks off to me, somehow she never gets it right.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Love the dress on the model. Not working as well on Olivia here. Poor girl needs to learn how to lift her eyebrows some.

  • Imasewsure

    I’ll give her a pass for wearing Juicy to a Juicy event (but she is too old for that dress)… ok, not a pass… not her dress (or her face)

  • alinana

    I’m so distracted by the hair and makeup that I can’t even see the dress.

  • greyhoundgirl

    Hostess in a men’s bar.

  • peachy

    dress looks far better on the model. on this scrunchy-faced lady, it looks too small in the breast area, too short, too tight under her arms, and, the shoes are not right for that dress. the clutch is a little casual. and yeah, that makeup is well… it just needs a gay.

  • MK03

    What’s to get? She has perma-bitchface.

  • She’s the Olivia that I always have trouble remembering/identifying. And the dress doesn’t really do it for me.

  • Right at the top of my irrational hate list, for the reasons BKs have already stated. The open-mouthed porn star posing, the tendency to de-classify everything she puts on. This is a perfect example. Cute face with overly-sexed makeup and body language. Find a new niche, Olivia.

  • Trisha26

    Makeup problems aside, I just don’t like this cocktail waitress-look.

  • Zippypie

    Hate the cigarette girl dress – it doesn’t fit – her girls look like they’re straining to explode – and the face.  She either looks like she’s posing for a mug shot or a porn shot.  No likey at all.  She needs to hire a gay for a total makeover.

  • She’s taking then “chin up, tits out” too far.  The dress is just oddly proportioned and it’s relatively boring. Olivia and Julianne Hough need to PAY A GAY. Like yesterday. 

  • barbarienne

    I disagree with you about the dress. Either a lot of bosom or a skirt that threatens to show the good china, but not both. This isn’t so far over the line that it couldn’t walk back to Respectable, but as she’s wearing it, no. It looks like it shrunk in the wash.

    As for her face, I totally agree. Any woman with her bone structure and features should be able to look good all the time without half trying. The hairstyle does nothing for her, either. The situation is not helped by her not knowing how to pose her face (as it were).

  • missnutkin

    the waist sits too high, as does the hem, they both need dropping down a good inch or so for the proportions to be right on her. As for the make up, either it’s the lighting or there is some weird contouring around the nose but the main problem is the lip colour. Also nor sure the up-do was the right way to go on the hair

  • Poor lil sleepy cocktail waitress. 

  • libraangel

    Actually, I like her face and her dress – the dress just needs to be longer by about 2-3 inches.

  • I wouldn’t have known who this was except for the post title.  Seriously doesn’t even look like her.  Hate the severe hair.

  • tap dance costume

    • Anniebet

      Good call…I can totally see that on Ann Miller back in an old 40’s musical. 

  • Louise Bryan

    I think this is a dress designed for someone with very small girls.  I love the shoes, which surprises the heck out of me.  As for the face and hair, she needs to pay an assistant, without regard to race, creed, gender or sexual orientation.

  • Her make-up is so bad it’s somehow making her look drunk.

  • MzzPants

     “Pay A Gay”.  And there’s your new business model, boys.

  • carolie_king

    That over-the-shoulder look is pure Kirsten Dunst hooded eye smirk.  Blech.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    It’s pulling at the bust, and the skirt’s too short.  Plus, she set her makeup gun to Whore.

  • demidaemon

    That last line gave me horror film chills.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    I can’t with that makeup.  I’ve managed to do better in the bathroom of my office with a few minutes to go before my other job at a nightclub begins.  And I just had a tiny eyeshadow palate, a tube of lipstick, and a compact.  And I’m not going to any grey carpet event.

    It looks like she borrowed someones makeup on the car ride over.  It’s NOT THAT HARD. 

  • save_the_hobbit

     She’s normally so hot….here she just looks terrifying.
