  • Uncle Fester

    • Vaniljekjeks

       Nailed it.

    • Hell Yes, I Would!

      I was trying to place it – but you definitely nailed it.

    •  Yep, Uncle Fester in Nancy Kerrigan’s ’94 Olympics costume.

    • I thought “punched in the face twice,” but Uncle Fester is more apt.

      If she has a makeup artist, she should fire them. If she doesn’t, she needs to hire one. 

  • she looks undead. the makeup is absolutely terrible.

    • Her eyeshadow makes me think she was in a fight last night.  What Hollywood starlet wants that?!

      • Kristin McNamara

        That’s what I was going to say. She looks like she got punched in both eyes. Youch.

        • Lily-Rygh

           Either that or she has scurvy. 

    • Airkisses

       Punched by a baby.

      • H2olovngrl

        This cracked me up. Now I want to change my name to ‘punched by a baby’

        • Airkisses

          Can’t take credit for it, sadly 🙂 Either TLo or some other PUF is responsible. Great, isn’t it?

  • Kimis

    Dress too short. Shoes too small.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Her poor, poor toes!!!

  • meowing

    Ice skating costume.  And why the muddy eye makeup?  Re-do the eyes, add a bunch of inches to the hem, and it would be just okay.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    if she swapped the shoes for skates she would be ready for her short program!

  • Does she have some sort of infection in both eyes? Though overall the look is just dated and not great on her.

  • Makeup is horrible, your dress looks like a bathrobe, and your shoes do not fit. Oh they’re tacky as well. Just. No. 

  • aeb1986

    HORRIBLE makeup. It looks like she’s in the middle of a serious bought of influenza

  • Clearly she hired her makeup artist away from The Walking Dead.

  • peachy

    well, who socked her in the face? she looks like she’s been a few rounds in the ring. the shoes are really, uncomfortably, ill fitting. the dress is a little too short for my tastes. her legs are fine; the dress just doesn’t flatter them. how about a colorful necklace? purse? lip? SOMEthing, please, to create a delineation between the outfit and the white walls. the whole thing es no bueno pour moi.

  • Annabelle Archer

    The dress is too small.  The shoes are too small.  The make-up is consumptive and unflattering.  Fail, per usual. 

  • Sobaika

    A bit too short and a bit too dressy for PaleyFest.

  • Cute dress, dreadful eye make.  I love the shoes, but honey, you make them look dreadful.  

  • calimon

    Raccoon eyes. Cleavage or legs, but not both. Shoe issues. Clairol hair. Altogether it sounds good on paper, but in the light of day, it falls short.

  • gabbilevy

    Her makeup makes me sad. So do her shoes. Oh, Olivia.

  • reddhouston

    Ugh…her makeup is horrible

  • I love that her polish appears a little chipped at the cuticles…. and everything else is rather terrible.  Those shoes look excruciatingly small at the front, and ridiculously big at the back.  Maybe that means a different pair of shoes is in order, dear.

  • Consumptive.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    An extra two inches to that hem would have worked minor miracles.

  • VioletFem

    She looks uncomfortable. Considering how short that dress is and how tight does shoes look, it’s no surprise.

  • zenobar

    Of course.

  • Yawn.

    The dress is fine. It’s a skosh too short. That’s about all I can muster. The shoes are cute, but it looks like they’re torturing her feet.  Her eye makeup is terrible – it’s making her eyes look like they’re closer together than they are. And the hair? My “I overslept and was running late for work this morning” hair looks better than that.

  • What was she thinking?!! 

    I HATE the shoes. I swear, nothing creeps me out more than a pinky toe that is about to fall out of a pair of heels. Feet are like ta-tas, too much crack showing makes people cringe.

  • gdougs

    Girl, that is not your hair and makeup

  • warnerave

    pretty..but yes, it’s a little too short..maybe 2-3 inches more it would be awesome!

  • Too short. Looks like an ice skating costume. And shoes look painfully uncomfortable.

  • Snailstsichr

    I don’t understand why she is so difficult to dress. This is sad.

  • UGH! Why oh why does she always look bad!? She’s so gorgeous, it can’t be this hard.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      This!  She is beau-ti-ful!  But never seems to get it right.  What’s the matter????  Give it to me, if you can’t use your power wisely!

    • charlotte

      She has Rashida-itis, a common symptom of the Morena Baccarin Syndrome.

  • decormaven

    Too short, too low, and too much toe cleavage. 

  • Rand Ortega

    No. No. No. & No. In that order.

  • jilly_d

    Not a horrible dress but OH HONEY. The limp hair, the undead makeup, the squashy toes in the fugly shoes, the chipped mani.  Didn’t quite nail down the details here.  Keep that ring though; that ring is terrific.

  • rloliveira

    Waaaaaay too short.

  • THe dress needs a couple inches and the shoes need to go away forever

  • MsOlympia

    looks like tanya harding has struck again…

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Blusher on eye lids
      Madame Bovary on ice
      Fab ring dies inside

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        oh no… lol!

  • E. D.

    Skirt needs to be 3-4″ longer and that eye makeup is too dark.

  • MK03

    Is she on a bender or does her makeup artist hate her? Neither would surprise me.

  • Indigo54

    You know she’s sorry she wore those shoes.  Probably flung them against wall when she got home.  

  • stubbornthoughts

    Why does she always look like she has a double dose of pink eye?

  • MilaXX

    She just cannot get it right. I like the hair, but the makeup is awful. She needs some concealer and a warmer lip. There is such a thing as a nude lip and looking dead. This is a half hearted attempt, but still isn’t  quite what she needs. The dress is actually cute, but could stand to be a skoosh longer. However, I would forgive the dress length of everything else worked. Then we have the ragged manicure. How on earth she did that in the day and age of mani-cams and pinterest nails is beyond me, but gurl, those nails look bad. Most surprising of all is that her shoes look too small. I’m fairly used to lady stars on the RC in shoes too big, but her poor toes are squished in these shoes.

  • Christy Cricow

    Proportion makes it look like a skating costume…..miserable shoes…..makeup that makes a pretty girl look like she has consumption…..How very odd!

  • The dress is pretty cute. But whoever inflicted the consumptive eye makeup upon her angelic face should have their cosmetician license revoked.

  • Horrible eye makeup! It makes her look sick or near death.

  • Caitlin_G

    I read her memoir and in it she complains about her Playboy photo shoot and how she had to demand certain things like get in her own make up artist because her features and that a little goes a long way with her. But honestly… She either fired this magical make up arist years ago or she has no clue what works for her.

  • Amy

    Her pinkie toes are making a run for it.  I’ll reserve opinion on the dress until I see her routine. If she can pull off a number when clearly she is dying of SOMETHING, then she will get an ‘IN’ in my book. 

  • Janet B

    Those shoes are torture: ankle strap tight as it will go, still her heel isn’t all the way back, and squished toes; how did she get out of the house?
    How is it that the makeup she wears is always wrong?

    • conniemd

       It looks like shoes may be too big, since her heel isn’t all the way back, yet the toes are sticking out of the front. Hard to imagine a worse or more uncomfortable fit.

    • PaulaBerman

      And you can see the bandaid on her heel from the last ill fitting pair of shoes she forced her feet into. They look very painful and so not worth the pain.

  • Bruised eyelids. Not what I assume she was going for with that makeup.

  • Alyssa

    I see a lovely swimsuit cover up here. And perhaps if she’s been swimming, it explains the dreadful makeup…she forgot to wear waterproof today!

  • Melanie_Bee

    Very cute dress, but too short. The shoes look like something bought at a tacky, off-brand store at the mall. And the makeup – oh dear! She needs something with a bit of color to liven up her face. 

  • Zubair Ghumro

    How come she and Jessica Alba are stars? 

  • I’ve been prejudiced against her since I first encountered her on the Daily Show, where she wasn’t funny and seemed to be there to be the obligatory ‘hot’ female correspondent. Her consistently unfortunate sartorial choices aren’t helping her case… And who could leave the house knowing her makeup looked like that?

  • MissFern

    a short bathrobe and zombie eyes. 

  • Trisha26

    Hate the shoes, hate the dress (what there is of it), and hate the makeup (ditto.)

  • Those shoes look extra pinchy.  

  • j_anson

    Okay, she’s done something horrible to her face, right? I don’t just mean the makeup. I assumed it was the makeup the first two times in a row, but now I’m assuming the makeup is just an accessory to the crime.

  • Diego!

    The walking dead… what happened to her face??? O_O

  • kimmeister

    She needs to never wear brown eye shadow ever again.  Yikes.

  • Mazenderan

    Make-up looks mucky, dress looks like a nasty ice-skating thing, shoes look cheap.

  • Why would anyone want to honor The Newsroom?

    • lobsterlen

       I watched Newsroom twice. It hurt.

  • lacy Betters

    One of those pinky toes has a serious bunion on it. I’m aware that all humans get them and to think that celebrities are immune to them is silly. But why wear a pair of ill-fitting shoes that emphasize it being seen? (and made more painful to bear when walking?)

    • bd73

      do you mean a corn? it’s not that noticeable, except with extreme closeup. and like 40% of people don’t get them.

  • libraangel

    Two more inches please! I mean on the skirt. And what’s with fingernail polish flaking off?

  • PrunellaV

    It looks like someone slugged her in the face and took her pants.

  • Was she in some sort of an accident on the way over? An accident that hurt her and stole the bottom half of her dress?

  • Looks like she’s barely keeping those shoes on.  There isn’t much of her toes actually IN the front of the shoe.

  • margaret meyers

    She always has this unpleasent expression on her face.  Is she on something, like maybe a big tranquilizer?

    • Dot

       She does always seems to have this same dead eyes, forced smile expression in every photo I ever see of her.

  • she looks like she’s got two black eyes. or red eyes i guess. and those shoes are HIDDY.

  • kittenwithaquip

    What fresh hell is this? Is she trying out for the role of Virginal Zombie Hooker? Slutty vampire bride? And what’s up with all of the white dresses against white backdrops? Don’t they know we need to criticize this shit to amuse ourselves?

  • Kristy Evans


  • ChaquitaPhilly

    So, she’s supposed to look like that?

  • christinewithanx

    Ugh, when is her time up again? Did a three year old dress her?

  • guest2visits

    She looked fantastic at the Oscars.  
    Maybe that was the last ime she showered and had a decent breakfast. It’s like she dressed specifically for the walk of shame.

  • AnaRoW

    Are we sure that’s a dress and not a shirt?

  • rahrahbowbow

    Looks like a figure skating outfit…

  • marilyn

    The dress is so short, and it combined with the f***me shoes gives the overall look a hooker vibe.  I know everything is expensive, but together it looks tacky.  However, LOVE the ring.  It’s classic.

  • barbarienne

    Tits OR legs, honey, not both! Make that skirt two inches longer and it could work.

    I am not even looking above the neck, as even a glance reveals that someone did her no favors.

  • librarygrrl64

    1. Tits OR legs. Pick one.

    2. Makeup job is among the worst I have ever seen.3. I have an irrational dislike of toe cleavage.

  • Coco Cornejo

    Shoes don’t fit and the eye makeup makes her look like she’s been in a fight. *NOT* a good look.

  • Shoes fit terribly! Besides looking hellapainful, this frequent red carpet gaffe irks me as much or more than other frequent fitting issues, i.e. hems, cuffs. Think of the cuts/blisters these will surely give her by the end of the night.

  • Oh no. Bad makeup. Bad dress. bad shoes.

  • kathrineb

    Those shoes make be feel intense hate. Gold, pointy with the words biggest amount of toe cleavage whats not to hate?
    Hair and eye shadow bothers me also.

  • ccm800

    Is something amiss with her health?
