Drew Barrymore in Dries Van Noten

Posted on April 22, 2013

Look, Drew. We are totally supportive of the post-partum period of style freedom; that indeterminate length of time after baby-baking in which mommy is free from any judgements regarding effort. But we just can’t get behind this one, dear.

Drew Barrymore attends the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, California in Dries Van Noten.

Dries van Noten Spring 2013 Collection/Model: Alana Zimmer (ELITE)

The post-partum period of style freedom does not extend to dressing like an oven mitt, dear. Go home and put on a fabulously comfortable caftan and then come back, mkay? We miss you.

    Camo Bedspread…

    • The exact words that flew from my mouth.

    • Melizmatic

      Dammit, Stella!


      I was just going to ask;

      “Why on earth is she wearing a ‘Motel 6’ bedspread?”

      The fug; it’s almost unforgivable…

  • MsOlympia

    It’s too bad about the Kmart bedspread…her hair and makeup look great. Stunning, even.

  • Skirtjamas.

  • Dries van Noten Snoogie.

  • homofascist

    To be fair, that would be an AMAZING oven mitt.

    • Also on the plus side, the baby won’t get burned.

  • hughman

    Kill the wabbit!

  • Peeve

    My first thought was that she looked like a sofa. But ‘oven mitt’ is way more descriptive and makes me laugh! Oh, honey–no!

  • artgirl9

    Very expensive Snuggie. And I usually love DvN.

  • Hair and makeup are awesome, but whoever told her that doesn’t look like a sleeping bag does not have her best interests at heart.

    • Agree – very good face, very pretty hair. LOL sleeping bag!

  • MilaXX

    Like she’s wearing the bed comforter

  • christinewithanx

    It’s quilted, for her comfort! In better news, that lip always looks amazing on her.

  • My parents had a couch with a print like this. Or maybe it was a comforter with a quilting like this. Or possibly curtains… this is interior design from another era!

  • My couch had a similar pattern… in the beginning of the 90’s.

  • lobsterlen

    Drew’s hair and make-up are lovely.

    • anotherkate

      Came here to say just that. She looks utterly beautiful, in SPITE of the fact that that quilted monstrosity is a terrible color for her. Babies really are good for the skin!

      • drdarke

        She looks fine – that outfit looks like an “edgy” quilt.

  • Sobaika

    She is wearing a sofa.

  • claudemtl777

    LOL on oven mitt!! together is a bit much, but as separates…maybe…

  • Janet B

    If only the inside of my sleeping bag were that print.
    Fabric that falls so far from the body will get people whispering about child #2. Ask me how I know!

  • Hotel room bedspread. Hideous.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Her makeup looks pretty…

  • another_laura

    Jeebus, that is one ugly outfit.

  • Is that Grey Gardens wall paper she’s wearing? Poor dear.

  • barbarienne

    Quilted and boxy are two adjectives that should almost never be applied to clothes.

  • PastryGoddess

    Honey just because you played Little Edie, doesn’t mean you have to turn into Little Edie

    • StellaZafella

      Little Edie would have added a mink collar…
      My revolutionary dress, indeed!

  • Angel Ratliff

    This outfit looks like a coverlet from a bad hotel. I would say “burn it” but I’m pretty sure it is soaked in flame retardant. Love Drew, hate the outfit.

  • “Oven mitt.” Lol. Everyday you give me a jewel that I use as ammo against my vainglorious girlfriends.

  • Zaftiguana

    Oh my god, I needed that laugh today.

    • Vickiefantastico

      I literally LOLed. That’s the most unflattering garment I have seen in quite some time. Sorry, Drew, I’ve been in that new Mom mode before too, but that’s hideous.

  • OhDoogs

    Days Inn Comforter from every crime reenactment on American Justice? What are you doing at the GLAAD Media Awards?

  • MikeW_Vegas

    “Dressing like an oven mitt” Chortle!!!

  • stubbornthoughts

    Before I even got to the bottom, I was going to comment about the “baby-baking” bit and how truly ironic is was since she’s wearing a life sized potholder. Thankfully, you fine men didn’t miss a beat! I expect nothing less.

  • blueberrypanckae

    Bedspread from the Airport HoJo!

  • I know the “looks like furniture” thing is overdone, but she honest-to-god looks like she sewed up the (ugly) comforter off her bed, a la Scarlett’s curtains. I’m usually yelling to be nice to mommies, but this is just sad.

  • crash1212

    In her defense, it doesn’t look any better on the model. Can’t defend her making the choice, however.

  • spooki C

    OOF, a very ugly, shapeless bed quilt. Her hair and makeup aren’t doing anything for her either. I think she rolled out of bed and got tangled in her comforter and went with it.

  • snarkykitten


  • MK03

    Quilted separates are never OK. Quilted ANYTHING is never OK.

    • Qitkat

      Certainly not big heavy boxy quilting like this.

      But I disagree vehemently, but politely with your second statement. I have created and worn myself, and seen, lovely garments that are works of art made by quilters, some structured, well-fitted but never bulky, others soft and flowey. Almost any fabric can be quilted, the batting needs to be very very thin, or even non-existent. Any pattern such as Vogue or McCalls could contain a quilted element(s). Machine quilting that is just a series of parallel intersecting lines is the most boring of all; hand quilting with creative designs can be lovely. And very flattering. And even sophisticated. It’s a legitimate entry in the *fabric manipulation* category, just as all the hand arts of yesteryear are, and that are becoming increasingly appreciated as they endure (knitting, crocheting, hand wovens, embroidery, batik, tie dye, quilting, felting and other fine techniques). It all comes down to the skill and vision of the creator, and the materials chosen to work with.

  • oldbobbydraper

    i laughed.

  • Is that the comforter from the Days Inn down the street?

  • TheAmericaness


  • alyce1213

    Everything BUT that outfit is lovely: hair, makeup, jewelry, manicure.
    I love her to death, I’m trying to be positive.

  • Calinda_L

    To quote TLo from the Jennifer Lawrence post that just went up: “Love your head.”

    Her face and hair are great. The outfit… would look better if the pieces were separated. The top with slim black pants or a pencil skirt? Fab! The skirt with a pair of matches and some lighter fluid, er, I mean, I mean, with a simple top? Fab! Together? Not fab.

    • e jerry powell

      It would look better made into handbags. It needs to not be clothing.

  • E. D.

    Say no to bedspreads! Like the hair and makeup though.

  • Imasewsure

    This oven mitt dress has got to be a contender for one of our worst of the year!!! Good job Mama Drew…. you’ll make a fashion list for sure in 2013

  • Synnamin

    Oh, Drew. Looking like a stoned early 1980’s couch is not a good look.

  • marilyn

    Why is she wearing that horrible thing? She may have just had a baby, but she does not need to hide her body that much.. There are many other styles of dresses that would be attractive on her now. Even in that horrid print. . I am not sure why she is wearing camo-gear print and is covered up so much. Is she depressed? Someone needs to tell her she is much more attractive than she is giving her self credit for.

    The problem with the outfit, is that the top is boxy and the skirt is straight, so the outfit takes away all of her shape. She should be looking for clothes that make her look curvy, not clothes that make her look boxy. Her clothes don’t need to emphasize what might be her problems. Even if she wants to wear that print, it should be done to make her body look attractive, not to emphasize any figure problems she may have now. I think she may be overreacting to the post partum changes in her body. The outfit she is wearing tells us more about her feelings, and anything else. She needs to know she is good looking, and should not worry about returning to a bikini figure immediately. It takes a while for her body to adjust.

  • PrunellaV

    Psst — honey, I think your shirt’s on backwards.

  • titaness25

    “Oh dear. Let me look over my shoulder- I seem to have lost my last fuck to give.”

  • Looks like the designer swiped a bedspread from a Motel 6 and ran with it. NO.

  • Trisha26

    All I can say is, at least it’s not the camouflage print I first thought it was.

    • conniemd

      Does not make it any less hideous, though!

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Hair, makeup and manicure are flawless. Please, someone, take that thing masquerading as a dress away and burn it.

  • Louise Bryan

    Oven mitt! Right on!!

  • formerlyAnon

    I like her hair color.

  • Anniebet

    Was this photo shoot taken on 4/20? I can’t imagine anyone choosing to wear such hideousness unless they were under the influence of some kind of mind altering substance.

  • bellafigura1

    That’s the worst thing I’ve seen on anyone in a long long time. Drew Barrymore is just not who springs to mind when I think of Dries. Mega disconnect between their personas.

  • Shouldn’t there be a dead deer at her feet?

    • l_c_ann

      I thought they’d come up with a camo for the deep north woods where the blue greens predominate

  • schadenfreudelicious

    how many pot holders died to make that outfit??

  • Heather

    SHE looks great – I would kill for that skin – but there is NO time or place to wear quilted clothing.

  • Why is she wearing my quilt?

  • Pennymac

    The outfit is beyond horrid. Drew, however, is luminous. She just becomes more beautiful with age.

  • e jerry powell

    Jeez. Who was this monstrosity designed for? It doesn’t even look good on the runway. Who can wear this well?

  • SewingSiren

    I think it looks worse on the model.

  • OrigamiRose

    Good lord. The Shilo Inn is missing a bedspread.

  • I relate to Drew. We are short. Even when we want to look comfy and wear pretty colored, boxy fun stuff, we just can’t and it makes us look like tents. We either wear “figure flattering” stuff, or look like tents.

  • MaryAtRealityTea

    So, this is made out of Betty and Megan Draper’s recycled bathrobes right?

  • PeaceBang

    Oven mitt!! hee hee! Love you, Drew!

  • TheAmericaness

    She might want to tone down that lipstick otherwise the ducks are going to see through that disguise.

  • bd73

    she’s just messing with us, but i love your suggestion that she go get a nice caftan. imagine her doing a late ’70s renee russo…

  • CMSmith1848

    This should have totally been a “Drew Berrymore gives up.” I have two little kids and can understand wanting to be comfortable, but this . . . oh, honey, no!

  • Her face looks beautiful. She does look like an oven mit.

    • BayTampaBay

      Love the outfit on the model

  • Rebecca Jay

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of Drew not smiling. It’s unnatural. I don’t like it. The forced, pained smiles are just as bad…. worse, even?
    Hair and makeup really are superb, and her manicure is perfect.

  • Contralto

    Oy. Love her hair color, though.

  • Warrior89

    Face and hair are beautiful. And she’s working the outfit…it’s just so ugly. Ugh. New mommy brain fuzzy allowed her to think this was okay.

  • carnush

    This is an example of an outfit that should not be attempted in real life.

  • AmeliaEve

    It’s a monstrous camo tea cosy!

  • Love her make up, though. Bitch looks 23.

  • MartyBellerMask

    OMG Drew! If you got baby weight hanging around, nobody cares. Rock your mommy body in something adorable. If anyone can do it, you can.

  • KSpence

    This is taking “camouflaging the baby weight” a bit too far, methinks.

  • From the neck up, love it. And that’s all I’m gonna say about that. (No Forrest)

  • poggi

    Over mitt. hah!

  • Danielle

    Nobody should wear this, not even the model looks good in it. I don’t even know how this ever got out of the design phase and into production. What was worse than this that got rejected from the line?

    And is the top on backwards or something? It’s pulling all kinds of funny. I get that after you have a baby it’s hard to find something flattering (I’m still there over a year later), but honey, if anything this makes you look bigger than you are.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Quilted camo, another Idaho look. (I lived there for awhile…)

  • Upholstery.

  • tereliz

    Duvet-chic! No, wait, just duvet.

  • Oven Mitt? I thought she was dressed like a hotel bedspread.

  • Laura Korth

    She is wearing a hotel bed spread.

  • kathrineb

    Wow this is terrible. If this was not an expensive designer outfit nobody would wear this ridiculous thing.

  • mrspeel2

    Even on the model, that outfit is plain fugly.

  • guest2visits

    Oven mitt or old quilt. Just the top would have been nice over pants or a skirt. Hair and make-up looking good though.

  • ketbret

    Wait…what is this? She looks like a little person. Why, why, why?
