• Introspective

    how is it that she looks better here than she did the entirety of awards season?

    • Tatiana Luján

      I guess she has had time to rest and to pick her clothes with time.

    • H2olovngrl

      My exact thoughts. She looks Fab.

  • Sobaika

    I really like this, but I wish someone had ripped off the sleeve. Makes it look bulky.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    I just wish it hadn’t been a night shot, since the dark background makes half her body disappear.

    • Sobaika

      Especially with her (gorgeous) pale skin, the first shot almost looks like a disembodied ghost arm.

      • Little_Olive

        But I’m kinda loving the effect!

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    It’s one armed and there is sideboob, and yet I think she looks great.

    • http://twitter.com/watchinginkdry Krysta

      Cosign!

    • kschwarting

      Yup!  Though I could have done without the weird posing in the fourth photo.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        Someone asked her to do the chicken dance.

      • fursa_saida

        I think she was in the process of putting her hands on her hips in a more normal fashion and got snapped at the wrong moment.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      I agree, but let’s give her a haiku anyway:
      Geo print intrigues
      Ghostly arm reaches from black
      Side boob theater

      • H2olovngrl

        Haha awesome! More straight men would go see plays at the “Side Boob Theater”

    • Mexxoo

      Yeah – My first thought was “Amanda Sideboob”

  • emchicago

    she looks really pretty and the makeup looks good but I wish it didn’t have that sleeve

  • http://twitter.com/thejackanory Charles

    Have to say, I love this look even though a large part of me thinks I shouldn’t.

  • http://twitter.com/younglibrarian Katie Dunneback

    I kind of like. I think it’s the design of the graphic. It also helps that she didn’t overaccessorize.

  • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

    I like the design, but it’s a little shapeless. And the sideboob makes me want to run up to her, clucking in dismay and wielding safety pins.

  • Alyssa

    I like the dress, but would prefer it to be sleeveless on both sides. Side note – she has amazing hair!

  • Indigo54

    zzzzzzz….

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PKI5RTEEJ5TZIZII6VEN2G3D7A Caitlin

    Hair is fab. The look overall is good, but needs minor tweaking

  • schadenfreudelicious

    one sided side boob?..oddly i would have preferred two-sided….

  • crackineggs

    Well, she’s making a bold statement in the midst of Oscardressgate.  It’s hard to judge since so much of the dress disappears into the background.  She ends up looking a little like a Picasso.

    • l_c_ann

      I like it where somebody’s left hand reaches for her waist out of the blackness.  It just makes me smile.

      • kimmeister

        Ah, that’s creepy!  It’s a bit like the hand writing on the wall.

  • MilaXX

    If it wasn’t for the side boob, I think I could like this frankendress

  • xmixiex

    i’m not crazy about the dress, but the effect in the first picture with the dark background is cool. 

  • christinewithanx

     I like it! An aside, she always looks so parched. Either needs a bottle of water or better lip treatment.

  • Annabelle Archer

    I’m not mad at it.

  • mmc2315

    Huh.  I think I’d like to see her in more mod outfits instead of the fru fru girlie stuff.  Not bad, even with the side boob.

  • Trisha26

    The dress, including side-boob, is awkward. Just don’t understand the fascination with her on screen or off.

  • erinbinek

    Personal best. 

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    Cute, but it’s a pity she’s fading into the black behind her. 

  • JaneDC

    She looks like a grown up, instead of an ingenue. I think it’s the hair and makeup.

  • fringebenefit

    Don’t care for this. It looks better on AS than it does on the model, but it’s an awkward collection of elements that just don’t quite work.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    I kind of love this. She looks GREAT(and that’s not something that I say about Amanda very often). 

  • Janet B

    She looks beautiful although the disappearing arm is kind of funny. I like the embellishment/fabric whatever it is.

  • Jessica Rowe

    I LIKE IT

  • jmorino08

    I do not care for one-sleeved dresses, thank you.

  • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

    I love this entire look. Her hair is making me sing hosannahs.

  • Imasewsure

    This is a stupid dress. Yes she looks pretty because she is – but again… this is a stupid dress

  • BrooklynBomber

    I would like  this a lot if it wasn’t a Wilma and if her breast wasn’t peaking out.

  • appliquer

    She needs to always wear strong colors, including black. She looks so much better in this than that pale thing she wore to the Oscars!

  • teensmom99

    Amanda sweetie, next time you think of putting on one of those non-colors you sometimes wear, just remember how great you look in black.  Mkay, doll?  I’m even willing to forgive the side boobage with this one.  And I know your uncles may think the dress is a skosh too long but don’t let that little look they gave you get you down.  You look mah-velous!

  • alinana

    I could totaly get behind this dress if it wasn’t for the side boobage. It looks like a handy outfit for a nursing mother. She can just wipe out her boob and feed a baby without missing a beat.

  • ChelseaNH

    I like the unsleeved side a lot better than the sleeved side.

  • marilyn

    Odd dress.   It looks better on her than on the runway model.

  • amf0001

    see here I think the side boob is just pefect – sexy and alluring.  No reason why the tops are beautiful or the inside curve is revered and the outside curve is not.  I like all parts of the boob, but they can often look tacky.  I don’t get any sense of tackiness here. She looks gorgeous!

  • Sara__B

    This is her head (to borrow a phrase from T Lo). Hair and makeup are gorgeous.

  • barbarienne

    Hair and makeup that make the most of her spectacular face! Hooray!

    The dark background is rendering half of her invisible from neck to knees, but the half we can see looks great. Please please please let her do this more often.

  • MarissaLG

    LOVE. 

  • http://twitter.com/mrskokobware Katy Koehler

    Hot hot hot!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

    I covet the model’s shoes.

  • procrastinatrice

    Love her in this outfit, I think she is rocking it! It makes me happy to see Amanda look stylish–she is one of the most beautiful young women in Hollywood today, and she is a vision when she brings her A-game fashion-wise.

  • f_yeah_marie

    It only looks good in first shot because the sleeved half is camouflaged; it made for an interesting photo.

  • Elaine Lang

    sideboob.   JUST SAY NO TO SIDEBOOB.

  • ojosazules

    The invisibility cloak dress. Pretty cool.

  • Tashina Savage

    I’d kill for her hair. Makeup is fabulous.

  • alyce1213

    The side boob and opposite long sleeve are not computing.

  • librarygrrl64

    Not fond of one-sleeved dresses or side boob, but the cut and pattern are great on her.

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    I do not like the disappearing arm. The rest looks good.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    If it weren’t for the side boob, I’d say it’s perfect for her.  Even with it, it’s pretty goll-darned spectacular.

  • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

    I hope Givenchy fired whoever was doing their photoshop work…those street signs look about as awful as Ms. Seyfried does good.

  • sweet_potato

    She looks great, that is a fabulous dress.

  • J. Preposterice

    so is sideboob a thing now? I think I’ve seen more sideboob in the past 6 months than in the previous 30 years. 

  • rhl25

    Thank gawdamity she put the pastels down. 

  • http://twitter.com/yankeefoxtrot Alex McGeagh

    Karen is all growed up. Love this! 

  • leave_Blake_alone

    Oooh I really like this! Even the sleeve! Against the night background she looks like she’s cut in half or something (but in a cool way).

  • guest2visits

    I don’t like one sleeve dresses but she looks amazing in it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    Ack!  Bipolar dress!!  Nooooooooo.

  • Zippypie

    Chop off that offensive sleeve, please!!!

  • formerlyAnon

    For some reason these shots make me think she’s going to get more beautiful as she gets older.

  • elemspbee

    OMG, i love this dress. it’s super freaky! She’s rockin’ it.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    A personal best.

  • quiltrx

    I really love the ’tile’ down the front.  But I wish the arms had been consistent.

  • forward_slash_PRS

    Seems like kind of a mild side boob to me, not offended. Does anyone think the whole thing would be different (better?) if her hair were parted on the other side and came down onto the sleeved shoulder instead?

    Edited to add: Or something like that — I don’t know much about women’s hair.

  • FridaStaire

    Beautiful! But better sleeveless all the way.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    LOVE IT. Finally.  She gets it.  And perhaps she’s dressing better because she’s dressing for HERSELF versus some award season nonsense?

  • glennethph

    This looks good on her.  With her features, she should be a little bit more adventurous with her clothes.  Also, she  could do those one statement outfits.  LIke above, black but with these big graphic.  I wonder if she can handle those porcelain dresses from that exquisite designer from China.

  • libraangel

    Las Vegas craps table-inspired. Beautiful face though

  • Frank Lithium

    Gorgeous!

  • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

    Because it’s nighttime, that dress makes it look like half of Amanda is missing, and that’s left of her left side is a hand.

    So BASICALLY AMANDA IS (ALMOST) ALL RIGHT HERE.

  • ccm800

    she always looks so damn smug! Cute dress
