    The slit in the Rucci goes straight to her Cucci

  • Someone had some work done…And I just can’t with that dress.

    • Mismarker

      She had braces on her teeth for while…maybe the look of her new mouth is making her whole face look a little “different”.

      • Targettaste

        That might be it (I hope). She looks oddest in the poses with her mouth closed. Maybe it feels different and she hasn’t found a natural smile?

  • Diego!

    Did both of them had a promotion in botox? I don’t like her dress at all, there is some #pussyalert going on down there. But she looks ‘refreshed’. He looks ugly and skinny as sh*t! Eewww

  • TheDivineMissAnn

    Oh, no honey, not that dress. He looks like a million bucks, tho.

  • I thought she was wearing gaucho pants, which is kind of, um, interesting? But then saw a hunk of thigh. Yee.

    • Lori

      Thank god it wasn’t just me. I originally saw gaucho pants as well. The thing that’s killing me is that the unbuttoned skirt is actually worse. How is it possible that she’s wearing something worse than gaucho pants?

    • Mismarker

      You had me at gaucho pants. And lace ones, to boot!

  • Beverly Kozma

    Close your dress or close your legs. Too much.

  • sablehunter

    She looks like a hot, botox-frightened mess. His suit fits well, although it’s a bit powder blue explosion for me. And the hat is ridiculous.

  • Black lace with a giant slit up her legs, and black mesh belly?
    YUCK. Just trashy. The top doesn’t even fit properly! The buttons are gapping!

  • Lizzyisi

    I used to wear almost this exact same dress to goth clubs in 1990. But never unbuttoned like that. And with combat boots. It came from PierOne.

  • I see where her babies came from!

  • marilyn

    The Christian Dior shoes are not going to save this mess. That dress would be fine to wear out to dinner, or to go to the theater. It is not important enough to wear to an industry awards show. The black lace looks kind of negligee-ish. The hair, makeup and jewelry are strictly nail salon in the strip mall stuff. She needs a new look badly.

  • crash1212

    Seems I’m in the minority, but I think she looks great in this dress – the front “slash” is a bit much, but I’m not mad at it. I love her shoe choice and her hair/make-up is perfect. He looks great as well. I don’t understand all the comments about “work being done” – he looks like he lost some weight…you people are way harsh today.

  • H3ff

    She looks like she got ravaged in the limo on the way to the venue.

    • Janet B

      So true.
      Yet he looks unrumpled. That’s hardly fair.

    • Lucky her – he’s cute.

  • PastryGoddess

    That is a tragic tragic look

  • frannyprof

    HATE. And she wears some version of some black lace thingy all the time. This is, by far, the worst.

  • I…oh god, no. Especially not that belt, which is too close to her skin tone and thus makes it look like there’s a strip of midriff going on.

    • That’s her belly….with a string tied around it. And since there wasn’t enough skin showing, she decided to unbutton the top of her shirt. Seriously, she looks like she was ridden hard and put away wet.

      In horseman’s terms, that is not a good thing.

    • Lori

      That’s not a belt. That’s a sad strip of illusion net showing midriff. This outfit is definitely not the finest moment in the history of Chado Ralph Rucci.

      • Oh god, you’re right. It IS illusion netting. My head just exploded.

  • Sweet lord in heaven. It’s lace, it’s see through, are those bike shorts underneath? What the fuck did she make her husband wear? So many thoughts, too little time to process them all. Epic fail.

  • Imasewsure

    The dress is a hot mess but really only because of the horrible slit. Always an issue to me with lace (and of course, absurdly high which is even worse). Love the shoes. Wish she would go back to short, sleek hair but that’s my wish for most “starlets of a certain age”.

  • nannypoo

    Whorish. And his hat is way too big. I assume they’re a couple. They need to get better at giving each other feedback. “Honey, you look like a slut in that dress.” “Thank you, Darling, and your hat makes you look idiotic.” You know, like that.

    • EditKitten

      It IS a country music awards show, though, so the hat is actually pretty venue-appropriate …

      • Celandine1

        Yeah but that hat has cartoonish proportions and looks like a weird samuri helmet from the front.

    • l_c_ann

      They are married. Which is more than being a couple.

  • MilaXX

    Did she add the split or can we just not see it or the model? That one element ruins the look for me.

    • I think it’s there, but for some reason it’s more obvious on Faith.

      • teensmom99


      • MilaXX

        just tacky. I am not a fan of center splits to begin with but combined with the undone buttons, the whole thing just looks cheap.

        • That was what I thought too. It’s almost like there’s an arrow pointing the eye to the center of her body. And center splits almost NEVER look good.

  • Some of you are scary mean. I hate to tell you, but these country stars will always have more money than you could ever dare to dream of to buy things just to piss you off and I hope they do so every day. God bless both of them they look great!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      The fact that she has so much money and probably also has designers vying for her attention is part of what makes this such a sad choice. I think if she would have stuck closer to the runway version it would not have been as problematic. Celebrity style choices never piss me off, unless they are wearing fur.

      • ^This. The criticism comes from the fact that – with all of their money and access to designers and stylists – SO many celebs look awful when they show up on the red carpet – the one place where they are expected to be perfectly put-together. Clearly, money doesn’t buy style or taste.

    • EditKitten

      So … they’re better than us because they have more money?

      Methinks you’re a first-timer here.

  • TSkot

    It’s actually very pretty on the model all buttoned-up.

  • The lace/granny panty look needs to die a thousand deaths!

  • decormaven

    I like it when she is dressed & made up in a softer look. The hair, the va-va-voom slit, the unbuttoned bodice- it’s a little too overt for her.

  • I LOVE the clutch. I love the shoes too, just not with this dress. And I like the dress on the model, but theslituptothere on Faith is really distracting. I HATE that you can see the nude lining on the inside of the dress. And it sort of makes the dress look like she’s wearing palazzo pants or something. And she should have kept the top buttoned.

    Nice dress, but poor execution. At least she didn’t wear those tassel things on her wrists.

  • Tracy_Flick

    If you put it with those marabou kitten-heel “slippers,” it would be a perfect 70s/80s glamour bathrobe.

  • lonepear

    Girl, this is not your dress. It may not be anyone’s. But it is definitely not yours.

  • i am CRYING inside. How could she do that to that gorgeous Rucci dress? She took it straight to Trampytown USA.

    • Kathleen Shicks

      Also, how could she do that with that gorgeous man on her arm?!

    • ballerinawithagun

      I know, Rucci is the god of good taste and perfection. Did she have alterations done after she bought the dress? I can’t imagine that he would allow that dress to be fit that tight and did they open up the slit? It doesn’t look as if there are closures.

      • It looks as though the dress buttons all the way down the front, and that she chose to leave it mostly open. (sigh)

    • drdarke

      I – uh, I normally have no problem with an attractive woman showing off her assets in her couture.

      But that outfit – she looks like trailer trash in it, and it looks like it might be a lovely dress in another context.

  • It looks like she’s wearing camo cargo short shorts underneath. I just can’t even with this look.

  • j_anson

    Is the image here supposed to be… lace chaps?

  • Buttoned-up, like on the model, it’s a serviceable Italian widow wear. Unbuttoned, like on Faith, it’s a sloppy little negligee.

  • Faith, you are trying too hard. Go home. Look in the mirror and see yourself for the beautiful woman you are…then rip this dress to shreads.

  • teensmom99

    You know you’re wearing a dress wrong when your version is sexier and shows more skin than the runway model’s.

  • Dear hat gods, please bring back the good old felt stetson. Also, Faith looks terrible.

    • formerlyAnon

      Felt stetson. Yes.

  • I just realised that Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood are not the same person.

  • tereliz

    I don’t need to see that much of Faith’s hill. That is one hell of a slit, and in a lace skirt? WTF?

  • Sara__B

    I’ll take a six pack of Tim McGraw to go, please.

  • hell to the no! her spanx are cream making her skin looking oompa loompa orange her cooch is almost as OUT as this dress

  • poggi

    Way to turn a dress into a beach coverup Faith.

  • formerlyAnon

    She turned a decently pretty dress (can’t do better, I’m sick of see-through lace) into something that, were it not see-through lace, looks like a school teacher tried to turn her work shirtwaist into something more sexy in the ladies room at happy hour by unbuttoning too many buttons down from the top and up from the bottom. But she earns back a tiny bit of respect for the shoes. Which I LOVE.

    That stupid hat is too big for his head and we all know he’s got hair issues, anyway, and it’s ruining a damn good job with the suit. But it’s the ACM Awards, so I’ll give him a grudging pass for the hat, especially since those look like very appropriate dress boots.

  • I saw a photo of this online last night and was anxiously awaiting TLo’s commentary. But apparently it has rendered them speechless. I can’t say I blame them!

  • kalisa

    Did her makeup artist contour her chest? It looks like he contoured her chest.

  • Trisha26

    Country spaniel hair and Is she wearing a white onesie underneath? It looks as though the model is too, but the dress looks chic on the model.

  • alyce1213

    Exquisite dress (although I wish she’d kept the front closed), WRONG venue.

  • warnerave

    she looks good, but he looks uncomfortable in that suit, altho he is fine too…

  • jetpackdino

    This looks like something a stripper would wear to a funeral.

  • guest2visits

    Ridiculously high slit and visible under-roos. Ruined the look of the dress.
    He’s either shrinking or his big hat is getting bigger. I do not like the light suit on him.

  • bd73

    fact: her husband is a stone fox.

  • Toto Maya

    What a mess.

  • demidaemon

    When your husband has outdressed you and he is wearing a cowboy hat, it is time to reassess.

  • This looks so sloppy. Isn’t she one of the country music’s biggest names? Who let her show up looking like this? Fire your stylist.

  • HAAAATE center-slit skirts, they always look like they’re on sideways. But her shoes might be kickass.

  • ccm800

    handsome people.

  • librarygrrl64

    The definition of tacky.

  • Tootie!
