      Nearly excessive amount of accessories, no? Those shoes are a crime and I just can’t with the rest.

    • Tracy_Flick

      The whole outfit is sort of…unsettling.

      • IMNAngryLiberal

        I agree .. I keep thinking the dress and accessories shouldn’t be as off-putting as they are. I think it might be her slight crazed “I might just be a serial killer” grin PAIRED with the dress and accessories.

      • Little_Olive

        That is the word. Am I wrong that the shoes gave me a weird sexual vibe? Because it is possible that I’ve become overly alert to it.

        [if your name is after Reese’s character in Election, I love you]

        • Tracy_Flick

          It is after Election! I need to get an avi of her from the movie.

    • hughman

      Oh honey, I have no idea who you are but “side view” on your face isn’t a good look for you.

      • Louise Bryan

        I have no idea either, but that side view shot read Picasso to me. Which isn’t really a good thing for a photograph.

    • jetpackdino

      Those shoes? No. Looks like her big toes are gonna pop out of those little holes any moment now.

      She is actually an extraordinarily beautiful young woman, who has no idea how to dress for her looks and figure – or more likely, has people dressing her who have no idea how to compliment her face and figure. Which is a shame, because she is *stunning*.

    • SugarSnap108

      There is nothing good about this. The shoes are insane.

      Yet, despite my aversion to sheers in most forms, I like the look on the model.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Sheer hatred. An otherwise adorable LBD on a very pretty girl.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      The proportions…aren’t working.

    • http://profiles.google.com/scaponigro Sarah Caponigro

      It is all wearing her instead of her wearing all of it.

    • aeb1986

      no. wrong length. wrong shoes, wrong accessories

    • conniemd

      Loves bracelets much?

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Absolutely, emphatically NO.

    • titaness25

      COME to the dark side…we have bosoms.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Right? What IS going on in her boobular zone? Its like all her anatomy there has been photshopped out.

      • CT14

        Why did they try to erase her boobs by shoving them to the sides?

    • http://twitter.com/Bloodisea Barbora

      Jewellery and clutch – WANT! Hate the length, pretty hair.

    • StellaZafella

      Paraphrasing Chanel: “Before you leave the house, remove one accessory.”…
      you needed to leave the house at least 3 more times.

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

        Get out of my head. I thought of that exact “rule” but then I couldn’t decide which one thing and if the shoes would count as that one thing. Too much look for such an ameture.

        • drdarke

          Am I a bad person for singing “High on a hill stood a lonely goatherd/Lad-ie-ohda-Lad-ie-ohda-Lay-he-Hoo!” when I first saw this ensemble…? Seriously, it looks like a Traditional Peasant Costume for some fictitious country that only wears Black and White, and lots of costume jewelry.

      • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

        LOVE. Totally stealing this.

      • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

        She needed to take off those hiddy shoes – the little circle on the tip of the toes is freaking me out.

    • formerlyAnon

      So much less chic without the jacket.

      • ankali

        This dress doesn’t work with the deep V-neck instead of the solid top. I’m not sure why, but it’s visually confusing.

        • CT14

          It’s because they shoved her boobs almost completely off her body. I could live with the bracelets if they’d just release her anatomy.

    • marilyn

      You need to title this as one of those “Girl that’s not your dress” entries. The dress is proportioned wrong, The skirt is way too big, the bodice is cut too low, and the shoes are horrid. Removing the sleeves changed the dress in a bad way.

    • http://twitter.com/irmaladuce_l8ly IrmaLaDuce

      Looks like the extra creepy boob-version of Barbie & Ken’s unarticulated crotches.

    • MarissaLG

      I think the shoes are a little clunky, but overall I really like this look. Yeah the accessories are a bit much, but I think that’s okay for the MTV awards.

    • kmk05

      That dress is way too long. It makes the entire thing look disproportionate. Love that she doesn’t have mermaid hair, but hate those shoes with a passion when paired with that dress.

    • MilaXX

      She’s too short and her shoe choice only makes it worse. Bracelets too much

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Who? This dress is meant for a more statuesque ladystar. And perhaps someone a bit older, too. It seems a little too sophisticated for her. Hate the shoes, but I like the clutch and the bracelets. Her hair and makeup look mostly good, but I would have chosen a different color lip.

      • zenobar

        I absolutely HATE coral lipcolor. IMHO, coral is nobody’s lip color.

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

        She said ‘Who?’

    • alaskahyoung

      unflattering and kinda awkward, to be honest.

    • Anniebet

      She matched her eye color to her hair, or vice versa? Never heard of her, but she’s at least giving us something to bitch about.

    • http://www.facebook.com/conysoledad Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      With black pumps it wouldn’t have been too much.
      But darling, it IS too much.

    • jmorino08

      Trend overload!! Dial it back sweetheart!

    • Trisha26

      Proportions are way off for someone so short – I think she’s 5’2″?

    • Io Vee

      She looks like a little girl playing dress-up in her mother’s clothes.

    • nannypoo

      This is misguided from head to foot. The hair, the jewelry, the cleavageless gap, the shoes, the length and the frozen face all conspire to make her look a little deranged.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      works on an amazon model, the length is all wrong on her….

    • quiltrx

      Freaky–it looks like her cleavage has been airbrushed smooth!
      And honey, this is TOO much look for you. Someone who can carry it better needs to wear it WITH the little jacket and knock this look out of the park.

      • fursa_saida

        Send it to Kerry Washington, I say.

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

      Donna cuts a super dress. Unfortunately she is powerless over, yes, another talentless stylist!

    • fursa_saida

      JESUS CHRIST. She doesn’t look like herself AT ALL except in the very last picture, which is the only thing stopping me from shrieking about unnecessary surgery. I don’t know if it’s the makeup or the terrified smile or both, but I’m too horrified by whatever disservice has been done to her face to even look at the rest of it.

    • H2olovngrl

      I see all the negative comments, but I still think she looks pretty sharp and well put together. She maybe should have lost one of her bangles, but other than that I think she loo,s quite stylish.

    • demidaemon

      I feel like I’ve seen this dress on someone recently but can’t quite place it. She looks pretty, though.

    • yaby

      She looks uncomfortable. and this outfit is ugly and stupid- so it doesnt worth it.

    • AmeliaEve

      Major scroll fug.

    • KSpence

      That is some serious Scroll-down WTF.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      WOW I am having such a negative reaction to that jewelry, I can’t even put it into words. Please let that be a retro-trend that dies QUICKLY.

    • Tatiana Luján

      The dress is lovely, but it’s too long for her. The sad thing about wearing borrowed clothes is that you can’t alter them the way they need to be altered in order to fit you as they should.

      I want the jacket the model is sporting.
      The accesories are too much and most of them, except the clutch, wrong.

    • Snailstsichr

      Can I add – for goodness sake, stand up straight! The model owned this look mainly because she rocked some righteous posture.

    • barbarienne

      Her manic smile is killing me. Her smaller smile in the last photo has personality; she should learn to cultivate expressions more like that.

      Also, is her makeup layered on really thick? In the close-up (second from the bottom) it’s very aging. It’s like stage makeup. Is she trying to play to the back row?

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the ’70’s mod David Webb pieces!

    • Kikishua

      Love the skirt, tolerate the shoes, loathe everything else

    • librarygrrl64

      Jesus. No. To everything.
