Fergie in Los Angeles

Posted on April 02, 2013

Y’know… we can’t say we’ve ever been fans of Fergie’s style. Quite the opposite, in fact; we’ve always been pretty harsh in our criticisms. And while we still maintain that the best thing she can do – especially while she’s pregs – is streamline her look dramatically, we have to say …

 

Fergie attends Easter Sunday church services in Los Angeles in a Gucci kaftan dress.

Gucci Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Nadja Bender

… Any mommy-to-be who shows up at Easter services rocking a Gucci Janis Joplin look is a pretty damn cool mommy-to-be, as far as we’re concerned.

No, we don’t love the look, but wearing the dress as a tunic wasn’t a bad idea at all. The bag isn’t what we’d call chic, but it’s kind of badass for Sunday church.

      My first thought was “she wore that to CHURCH?!” I don’t particularly like this look, but It might work for her if she wasn’t carrying that attention-grabbing bag. Also, she looks so much softer (in a good way) when she’s not wearing 10 pounds of makeup.

      P.S. I had no idea she was preggo. I can’t even tell from these pictures.

        My first thought was, “she GOES to church?!”

    • lexilexi

      If I went to church, it would HAVE to be in LA… just to glimpse sights like this… and of course the ultra-religious Kardashians!

    • gabbilevy

      On what planet is it OK to wear this to church, especially on Easter?! But putting this outfit in a vacuum, it works for Fergie.

      • Scoobydrew

        Not only could you wear this to my church, but you might see a few other outfits similar, but Unitarian Universalists are totally groovy that way . At least my congregation is.

        • PeaceBang

          I was gonna SAY! I’m a Unitarian Universalist minister in a small, conservative New England town in an old-fashioned church with a steeple and box pews and this would be fine for Easter morning.

          • Scoobydrew

            Even more evidence that we rock !It’s “universal”

          • teensmom99

            I love knowing that a UU minisiter is a TLo fan.

            • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

              With the name Peace Bang. Loving it!

            As it should be. If there is a God, hopefully s/he isn’t so superficial.

        • Natalie Bryan

          Man, I attend a Baptist church in Texas, and you could wear this. Except for the bag…because it’s ugly.

          My university was UU, but that’s pretty much all I know about it. Seems like a cool crowd.

          Then again, I wear jeans to work every day, but consider it sacrilege to dress casually to go to the theatre. The rules of fashion are a mystery to me.

        This planet, actually.

        You don’t have to dress like a “square” on Easter or any other holiday. This outfit is not indecent or disrespectful, just funky.

        • colleenjanel

          I don’t think anyone is suggesting “square.” But it’s a very dark look for what is supposed to be a light, joyful occasion.

          • alyce1213

            I think the abundance of beautiful flowers takes it away from the realm of darkness.
            Also, maybe she wanted to look more slender in this black silhouette rather than a light, pastel or bright color.

      • Louise Bryan

        A few people might raise eyebrows at my Episcopal church upon viewing this outfit, but no one would say a word, even on Easter, and she would get hugs a plenty during the passing of the peace, especially if she sang a solo in lieu of the usual anthem at the offertory.

    • aeb1986

      I like it, but not for Easter Sunday Church….Good thing she didn’t attempt to walk into the same church as Michelle Obama

    • SayWTH

      Yup. Janis Joplin wanna be attending service. Although I think it might be a time warp kind of thing judging by the clothing on the attendees in the background in picture #3. I didn’t know they still made window pane checked blazers any more.

    • flamingoNW

      That’s pretty bad-ass preggers rock star. But church? lol

    • zenobar

      Oh Lord, my dearly-departed Gram would have given me such a hairy eyeball for trying to wear something emblazoned with a skull into our small-town Lutheran church. I once got into the car for church when I was 13, wearing a black plaid jumpsuit with neon yellow fingerless lace Madonna gloves, and she grimly said “Now, what are we calling *this* getup?”

      • MilaXX

        I think I like your Gram!

        • zenobar

          I loved her so much, and we were birds of a feather. But by 1985 my style (and by “style” I mean “Madonna Wanna-Be”) took a turn that offended her 1940s-50s sensibility. She loved it when I got into vintage a couple of years later, though. I still have tons of her costume jewelry, hats and coats, and I gotta say they’ve held up a lot better than the rubber bracelets, jelly gladiator sandals and mesh belly tops :)

        My Gram would have given me the ol’ “Baptist elbow” for that ensemble!

      I love what Fergie wears a lot more than what Kim wears!

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

        Which really, isn’t that much more. When I was pregnant, I would rather have died than squeeze my fat ass into anything tight, short, and/or leather.

    • colleenjanel

      It doesn’t really strike me as an Easter Sunday look. If you’re going to celebrate the Resurrection, dark rocker might not be the way to go. But that said, I have to admit that it bugs me to no end when paps feel the need to photograph celebs on their way to worship. Leave ‘em alone. (And I’m not even particularly religious.)

      • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

        I do agree on that point. There are some places that should be off-limits.

    • Janet B

      That bag is an attention grabber, not in a good way.

      • Sara L.

        It’s also HUGE. Is she carrying a hemorrhoid pillow in that thing?

    • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      Goth Easter? The floral down the front is lovely and lightens it up, but it’s still a really dark expression for Easter. Purple leggings do work as Easter colors. But I’m not liking this for Sunday services.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      She. Is. No. Janis.

      • alyce1213

        No one is; Janis was one of a kind.

      • lindsmh

        To me this looks more Stephen Tyler/Johnny Depp than Janis Joplin.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I applaud her for wearing the dress as a shirt. The old Fergie would have worn the dress, 4 inch stilettos and spray tanned within an inch of her life.

    • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Glam Dixie

      I hope she has a hair brush in that giant ugly bag.

    • jmw1122

      Maybe it’s because I live in a city with a college on every corner and thus go to church on a college campus, but this would be totally fine for Easter Sunday Mass where I am. She’s got her shoulders covered after all.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yes. Same here.

    • nannypoo

      I actually love this little hippie getup, but I wonder why all the ladystars need these giant purses. What do they need to carry in such a big bag?

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Thank you! I think of all the practical, must have for a full day away from home, shit I have to carry and think these women have people for all that shit. Stop with ginormous bags lady stars.

    • MilaXX

      I like the look except for the Ed Hardy bag(blech)… I don’t however think it’s church appropriate, but I am old school and I think one should dress up for worship.

    • Heather

      I got into trouble for not wearing PANTYHOSE to church.

    • jmorino08

      I hate those glasses, but this might be the best photo caption in the history of photo captions:

    • formerlyAnon

      Except for the purse, there was a period in my life when I’d have given anything I owned for that outfit. (Though preferably with black pants.)

    • Imasewsure

      Love this look head to toe… Gucci Janis rocks! Fergielicious without a bit of hoochy is a huge step up for me

    • texashistorian

      WAY too fussy. I think an up-do what have helped this outfit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bert.keeter Bert Keeter

      Hair n face…beautiful!

    • MissAmynae

      I really like this. Would I personally wear it to church? Probably not, but the church I used to go to wouldn’t care if I did–as long as I showed up :-)

      I’ll admit freely that I have a lot of love for our Fergie. She’s been through a lot, and come out on the right side. Cheers to her for being open and honest about her past. And you know that is gonna one CUTE baby.

    • H2olovngrl

      I can get behind the outfit, I can even overlook that ugly bag, but I think those glasses just turn the whole thing douchey. And no one needs douchery for Easter

    • PeggyOC

      I like the concept, but between the bag, the hair, the necklace and the tall boots, there’s just too much going on. It’s all a lot of flapping. Ditch the tall boots, go with some booties or flats. Pull back the hair (loose ponytail would be fine). Ditch the bag. Then the beauty of the work on the dress/tunic would show, the nice color match on the trousers would show and the sleeves would be a point of visual interest, instead of just getting lost in the muddle. That’s Fergie to a T. Always too much going on.

      • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

        THIS. I thought the necklace and the bag HAD to go, but yeah, change out the shoes (and maybe the hair) and I might actually love this.

    • Indigo54

      I just can’t stand those sloppy leggings. Love the dress/tunic tho.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst

      For church; this look is very trashy. If you’re going to do the “church” thing, at least have some respect.

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

      I can’t with those sunglasses.

    • http://twitter.com/DuBey2 Marie Fessler

      The only thing the Bible says about our dress for worship is that it be Modest. This outfit looks modest to me. And especially so for Fergie. Dressing up for Easter is more of a tradition, I think. I personally dress up but most do not– and I attend a Church of Christ in the Bible Belt. No one in our church would bat an eye at this outfit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=49702581 Susan Bullard Mayer

      No for church, and especially no for Easter Sunday. We’re not going to a funeral here–it’s the celebration of resurrection, after all–so why wear black? Seems so inappropriate.

      Then again, I’m an odd combination of progressive beliefs and traditional worship/rituals. Go figure.

    • GreenTurtle

      I don’t like this on Fergie, but I love the dress. Very unique.
