      Scrolldown fug. I like it from the waist up. The decoration across her loins is unfortunate and I dislike the sheer bottom to that skirt.

    • indeed

      for the girl for has everything, a dress with everything

      Her cooch is wearing a Hannibal Lecter mask. Vagina dentata?

        Wow, there really is a gaping maw, complete with teeth, right THERE, isn’t there?

        • zenobar

          Thanks to you, it’s my goal to work the phrase “gaping maw” into at least one conversation this evening.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Do let me know how that works out! (grin)

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        Hahaha! I saw a funnel!

      • zuzu

        Do you still hear the lambs screaming, Clarice?

    • Dam_Angel

      My goodness, she sure is happy!

      • Alyssa

        If I had a ring like that, I would be that happy too!

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Oh good LORD no! That’s an ridiculously overloaded dress. To say its got too much going on is an understatement of mind blowing proportion.

      • j_anson

        Word. It’s like JLo and Michael Jackson got together to design a (Native American) Indian Disney Princess outfit.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          (snorting with laughter)

      • Deb_Lynn

        Yep. It’d be pretty as a clutch.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        It’s Taylor Swift’s dress on crack.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          What really makes me sad is understanding just how many hundred hours went into laboriously creating that monstrosity. A couple dozen people worked Really Hard to make that look just like it does. Sooooo sad.

          • Breatheinthegood

            I think it’s really beautiful on the model- in the right lighting it looks glamorous. Unfortunately, the red carpet does not have the right lighting and it ends up looking overloaded (and kinda crass).

          • MilaXX

            and after all that beadwork and bedazzling who had the thought to say, “Let’s add some fringe!”

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              “And a dust ruffle! It needs a chiffon dust ruffle!”

            • Rand Ortega

              It’s the dress version of “Needs more cowbell!”

            • drdarke

              That’s it, @MilaXX:disqus ! It’s a Josh M outfit!

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

              Let’s make sure her secondary female characteristics are outlined and provided with lashes.

        And on top of that it looks like they ran out of embellishments at her knees so just left the rest plain. Strange.

      • drdarke

        The last time I saw that dress, a Virgin was about to be sacrificed to the Great Volcano God Kaka-Laka-WooMe-DooMe….

    • hughman

      What, no asp?

    • sablehunter

      I feel like the boob tassles wood look better in motion.

    • Alyssa

      Her hair & makeup (and smile) are gorgeous. The dress is severely overdesigned…boob fringe should be strictly reserved for exotic dancers.

    • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

      I’m trying to figure out why I don’t mind the dress as much on the model as I do on Jana. Her coloring? The lighting? Because with the model I’m like, “Huh. Fringe.” and on Jana I was “Aaack! Fringe!” It’s all less subtle IRL and that dress needed more subtlety.

      • conniemd

        The dress on the model is made in a darker color with some orange and brown tones instead of beige and gold. That makes it look less gold and tacky than this version.

    • ralish

      Too much going on, but gosh, her smile is selling it!

    • http://aspotofwhimsy.com/ diane {a spot of whimsy}

      welp, i graduated high school with Jana, and it would seem she has officially “made it” – her own feature on Tom&Lorenzo!

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      Normally I’d say the fringe was one or two elements too many. But for country music shindigs it is only appropriate.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Gorgeous dress – just right for the ACM awards. But… who IS she?

      • PastryGoddess

        Well she was up for newcomer of the year. So your question is right on target

        • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

          That would make sense. And through the power of Google, I found out that she was on the show One Tree Hill, as well.

    • MsOlympia

      All she needs to accessorize this look is the still-beating heart of a virgin in her outstretched hand.

    • Donna Tabor

      This gown is a little like Hiawatha meets Erte, isn’t it?

    • julnyes

      She has a nice smile. That is the only thing I like about this look.

    • JulieTy

      Born in Arizona, moved to Arizona . . . King Tut!

    • marilyn

      Obviously, Taylor Swift got first pick of dresses, and she got the left overs. This is too busy and too mantronly. She is not accesorizing it in a sleek way. It looks middle aged and overdone.

    • decormaven

      Serving up Golden Nugget goodness.

    • Karen Tully

      It’s like Cher meets the CMA.

    • MilaXX

      She should have opted to do without the fringe on top. It looks fine on the model, but awful on her. It may just be the angle but does it look like her right lash is lifting to anyone else?

    • Diego!

      I love this dress and look. Not WERQ enough for you?

    • jmorino08

      She looks like a flapper from a prude planet run by droid overlords.

      • gabbilevy

        C3PO in Vegas.

        • jmorino08

          This! Much better than my clunky attempt at humor!

    • MT2239

      I think it looks amazing on the model. NOT on the red carpet.

    • MikeW_Vegas

      Let’s save it for Tom Cruise’s daughter in a few years.. Then she can be the Suri with the fringe on top.

      • formerlyAnon

        If you don’t get a plethora of up votes, there is no justice.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        Watch that fringe and see how it flutters. Suri’s nips can peak thru the flutters…

    • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

      In the headshots this looks just like Taylor Swift’s dress. Shouldn’t one of them have thrown a giant fit and worn an inappropriately pointy apron instead?

    • unbornfawn

      Too much dress. Needs editing.

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s a little much, but I like it. This IS the CMA Awards which kinda runs the gamut, especially of looks that are a bit off standard red carpet. Gotta keep that in mind. She’s carrying the legacy of Loretta Lynn. Dolly Parton. Those Judd women. Helps that she looks like she’s having fun.

    • Trisha26

      Wow – way too much dress. And do we really need an outline of the female reproductive area? Hein.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      She looks like it’s so tight she can’t breathe.

    • eight_of_nine

      The fringe is a bit too much but otherwise it’s a stunning dress, and she’s selling it with that beautiful smile!

    • Imasewsure

      Looks like the dress may be designed to feature her engagement ring? Ugly dress, but that is an adorable picture!

    • a_liking

      I don’t know what all y’all’s problem is, but I LOVE this. it’s a lot of dress but she is selling the shit out of it! look at that smile!!

    • ThatPeterG

      Wait, wait, hang on here…..they give out AWARDS for country music?!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=783500814 Amelia Pitts

      That dress is really trying hard to be pretty but unfortunately the design on the front draws your eyes towards her middle and I stare at it thinking it’s a fertility symbol. She’s very pretty and is doing her best, but sadly, a no go on this dress. :(

    • guest2visits

      Her spirited brightness keeps this dress from going heavy or dated… she looks gorgeous in it.

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

      Gee ….another overworked gold dress.YAWN!

    • Contralto

      Wow. I really hate that dress. Girl’s cute, though.

    • demidaemon

      I’m glad she likes it, but I cannot with the tassel boobs and WTF skirt.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1405004314 Cindi Tracy Aune

      I had to look twice as I thought this was the same dress Taylor Swift was wearing lol

    • librarygrrl64


    • Sadie-Ann

      I’m pretty sure boob fringe is never okay.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      I like this dress very much. Fringe and all.

    • kathrineb

      Bling overload complete with tit tassels.
