Oh honey… no…. I saw the words “Abigail Breslin” and “Alice + Olivia” and though the results were going to be pretty… sigh.
I also came to that very conclusion upon reading the pairing – cute dress on a cute teenager – alas…..sigh, indeed.
She looks awkward and terribly uncomfortable. As though someone dressed her up, shoveled on some make up, and shoved her out there.
What? No. NO.
Oh my god. Why is in costume as a slightly-desperate 38-year-old? I
I know, how can a belly baring outfit look so frumpy and aging is beyond me… makeup and hair are NOT helping.
She’s 17, for god’s sake. She looks 30 here.
I thought she looked older than me, and I’m over 30.
She is completely unrecognizable. The outfit makes her look about 3 feet tall, and the blonde is not working for me on its own either. Not a fan.
Yeah… I was like, wrong name no? Sure it is her?
That idiotic jacket with the huge bow is ridiculously proportioned. The pants make her look like she is slowly sinking into the floor.
What the? No, what the?

Cas day pant, change top
Tinier by the minute
Eschew black frou frou.
Girl too much make up
And cover that belly now!
Go get cream rinse NOW
This is better than what I was going to submit, which was: ”what? NO!”
When did she grow up?! *feels old*
I know, right?! I want to wrap a towel around her bare midriff, hand her a washcloth and tell her to put on a real shirt and wipe that gunkoffyourfacerightnowmissy!
Oh gawd, help! I need an exorcism. My inner mother is taking over.
I didn’t even recognize her. WHY????
Me neither! I’m still not convinced it’s her…
I only gave in and agreed it was her when I got to the fifth picture and recognized her smile! Horrible!
This is horrible. The bow is just obnoxious. Isn’t black supposed to be slimming?
Is the giant neck bow ever not obnoxious? Are we really going to do that again?
At least when we did it before, we covered our bellies. 80s pussy bow + bare midriff = so many levels of no.
True. It’s sometimes difficult to defend 80s fashion, but we can at least say we didn’t do pussy bow + bare midriff. Geez Louise, that’s bad.
where are her feet?!?!?!?!
Bare pale belly, pleats, overly long pants: not good. Not good at all.
Little Miss Sunshine!!! If only she wore that jacket with a cute little dress in white or optical print.
The outfit is okay but the old lady straw hair and the troweled on make-up = I has a sad.
“troweled on”–Well played.
I thought this was Ashlee Simpson.
Oooooh. That’s a “no”.
Am I wearing my pants too short?
When did she age 10+ years?
In answer to your questions:
1. Your hem length is most likely fine.
2. Somewhere between the bathroom and her closet.
Pleated pants= bank teller realness
Pussy bows? Missing feet? The hair of a 40 year old? What the sunshiny fuck is this?
I need to “like” this multiple times.
what the f**k? 35 years young, ladies and gentlemen!
…oh wait. she’s 16. sixteen! this is sad.
I take offense to that! I’m 30-something, and I don’t even look that old.
no offense meant! i’m nearly 30 myself, and if she were 35, i’d think she looked good. regardless of one’s actual age, aging oneself 20 years through bad dye job / poor clothing choices / terrible makeup = bad plan.
The widow Breslin seems to be holding up well.
I hear her hair has turned quite gold from grief.
Very nice Importance reference!
Thank you! Apropos, too, given the dye job poor Abigail has going on up there.
Your comment takes the cake…great one!
That first picture makes her head look 5x too big for her body. Not a good look.
Too busy, which is a weird thing to say about an all black outfit, but there’s way too much going on here.
Pleats need to die in a fire
Generic fake blonde hair is a poor substitute for one’s own personality. She looked so generic here and she was such an interesting young girl.
Cougarwear. Desperate cougarwear.
When I saw the giant bow in the thumbnail I knew it would be bad. I did not realize it would be quite THAT bad, though. There is absolutely nothing good about the outfit, her hair, or the makeup. The whole look is just awful and terribly aging.
I thought she was Kristen Bell at a weird angle. And uh, magically not pregnant.
Poor thing. That outfit makes her body looked deformed.
is that the girl from little miss sunshine?
Yes – sadly.
Damn, she looks looks like a 40-something Real Housewife of Beverly Hills.
Holy shit, she does not look anything like herself. I mean, I know she’s grown up and all, but damn. Maybe it’s the hair??
Surprised you boys didn’t do a formal post on this one if only to discuss the fact that she looks about 35 here.
That hair is stupid.
Looks like the receptionist forgot to wear a shirt under her jacket…again.
This look is extraordinarily unflattering to her figure, AND manages to make her look more than twice her age. She’s only 16!!
Oh. Honey. Whoever’s working for you, fire them.
No. Set them ON fire.
YOU GO UPSTAIRS RIGHT NOW AND WASH THAT SH!T OFF OF YOUR FACE, YOUNG LADY! said EVERY MOTHER EVER.
Yes, I forgot to add that she’s wearing WAAAAAAAY too much makeup. There’s like an inch of foundation there.
Don’t like the bare midriff and for her height (5′) those clown pants and turtle neck/scarf make her look easily a foot shorter.
Wait, that’s the gal from Little Miss Sunshine? Did I fall asleep and wake up 20 years later?
Where are your feet, child?
I really want to tell her to go wash her face HOWEVER, she is a baby starlet and I should be used to them in drag by now
Also feet…WTF Was she attacked? Did they fall off?
Who is she again?
Oh gawd. Abigail is (was) a neighborhood girl, a friend of my friend’s 16-year-old daughter. I am simply appalled at how she looks. If I see her mom around I will throw such a dirty look at her.
Wow, I *never* would have figured out who that was by the pictures alone. Crazy.
This gives me a sad. Not sure for which reason: Because she looks old & terrible or because she looks old & terrible which makes me really old & feel terrible.
I’ll take both.
This is beyond terrible.
Honey, cover up your tummy. And when did she turn 30?
Why are the Fashion Gods deciding to make bare midriffs happen? STOP TRYING TO MAKE BARE MIDRIFFS HAPPEN! (says the girl who hates situps and loves carbs).
That is a horrible horrible horrible get up. Her and Hale together certainly made a fashion statement.
Slutty mime clown in mourning?
My first impression was that someone close to Abigail had died recently, and then I saw the flash of torso and realized that it must have been one her trashier friends.
NO. WHY?! Let’s sound it out: “belly-baring turtleneck wrap top tied off with a bow.” Terrible. It’s a pity, because I feel like the pieces could work separarely, and I love a good pair of trousers, and even a bare midriff on occasion, but NOT THIS. NONE OF THIS. The hair is mermaid-tastic, with a touch of chlorine damage it seems. Sweetie, go see if you can hit up the Fannings for a dress – I feel like you could work their washed out Virgin Suicides style better than they do.
far too young for so much makeup and fried hair.
The collar that ate Abigail Breslin, and spit out some refried blonde cougar.
She looks like a grown up Honey Boo-Boo…and I don’t know if that’s bad.
Not liking the monochrome blonde. She looks standard starlet rather than rocking the cool, quirky interesting factor she has rightly earned. Don’t let Hollywood erase you, Abigail!
Fire the crazy person who foisted that outfit and hair color on you.
uh, definitely did not recognize her till the 3rd picture
16 going on 36…..
Way too much makeup, but I think I see a beautiful young girl under there.
These are widow’s weeds
with a peek-a-boo belly.
What are you thinking?
too old, but amazing. tres chic.
Her torso looks like a jigsaw puzzle that someone took apart and put back together wrong.
Awful outfit. The cut of the top does nothing for her. She loses all shape in it. Her makeup and hair are done to a ‘t’, but the clothes are bad.
Woah woah woah. That is some heavy makeup for a girl her age. And that bleach job does nothing for her at ALL. And dare I even speak of the outfit? This is just awful.
Agree with everyone above and also this: those are huge belt loops where is the belt.
Just kidding, those are the ugliest pants in creation.
That right there is a master class in proportion and hair color. Study well, and do exactly the opposite.
She looks like she has taken lessons from Courtney Stodden on how to look old before your time…
Poor darling. What happened to her feet?
You mean our dear adorable little Olive has grown up? When did that happen?
I have hope she’ll figure out what looks best on her, in time.
Top is making her look like someone stole her shoulders…weird?
gads, first Jennifer Morrison, now this girl in pants drag on the floor. Is this new fad? Pants hemmed to touch the floor? Horrible, horrible waist on the pants.
I got all excited by the thumbnail. Alas, everything below the shoulders did not go the way I expected it to and I am much less excited now. Alas.
Sigh…I adore her and really wanted to like this. But scroll-down fug, big time. The blouse/bow thing is okay, if aging…but the bare stomach is WRONG. And those pants are SO strangely cut–I don’t know who they would ever look good on.
I hope the hair’s for a role–it’s pretty brassy. Makeup looks heavy, but maybe at her age it’s due to skin issues.
I still want to come back to the fact that she’s grown up into a beautiful young lady, and quite an actress!
no. just no.
i am extremely uncomfortable looking at these pictures CHRIST
WOA. That is one hard-to wear-outfit. Actually nobody should wear it…the more I look at it the more I hate it. She looks like a sweet girl though.
Gurl’s channelling Madeline Ashton
I actually really dig the top (bolero?), just not with these trousers. Hair and make-up are obviously terrible.
I want her to stay the little girl in the tattered princess gown in Signs
That’s a lotta slap for a girl her age. I actually (shockingly) like the blonde, though. Not so much with the midriff, however.
I had to do a double-take. In that first pic she looks about 40 years old. Is she even 20 yet?
well. unlike most, i like it. i like it alot. although it’s a bit shocking seeing the little girl all grown up.
Oh dear, here we go again. I scroll down and get disappointed. Shorten and slim those pants, missy!
Oh, sweetie. Who did this to you? We should have them arrested.
I love it! Guess I’m alone on this one.
oh hell no.
