Jennifer Morrison in Maria Lucia Hohan

Posted on April 18, 2013

Miss Jennifer, that is one whole hell of a lot of look for a talk show appearance.


‘Once Upon A Time’ star Jennifer Morrison makes an appearance on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ show in a Maria Lucia Hohan silk mousseline gown with leather trimmings paired with Sethi Couture and Isharya jewelry.

Maria Lucia Hohan ‘Solange’ dress


  1. It’s sheer and you can see both her slip and her ass cheeks in it.
  2. It’s got a hideously unflattering open (but really, non-existent) back that seems designed to give her mom-jean ass AND HAS A VISIBLE ZIPPER IN THE MIDDLE OF SOME WRINKLED ILLUSION NETTING OHMIGOD WE’RE GOING TO START CRYING ANY MINUTE.
  3. It’s got side cutouts, which aren’t really cutouts because if there’s no back on the garment, what are you cutting from?
  4. She’s wearing gigantic honking shoes and hoop earrings, which wouldn’t normally be a sin, but considering how much awfulness is going on in this outfit, they’re just another in a string of mistakes.

Dear god, the back of that dress may just be the ugliest back of a garment we’ve seen on a celebrity – ever. You’ve made us sad, Jennifer. Way to go.

  • TV appearance or Walk Of Shame?

  • Blair Sylvester

    I kind of like the dress in the top shot before you see the back and the fact that the slip doesn’t go all the way down. I like the color and the leather accent. Dont love the cutouts from the front but hate them from the side. If the back was different and the slip went all the way down i would really like this

    • Yes, and then all of the other pictures completely RUIN any potential that this dress might have had.

  • Maria Lucia Hohan, you are herewith banished to Designer Hell. This is the heretofore unknown 8th ring of hell, where you will have to commiserate with thousands of other designers, stylists, decorators and purveyors of style who similarly have rocks in their heads. You will be condemned to make clothes from old drapes bought at JCPenny’s, and try to sell them to your fellow damnees.

    • jetpackdino

      Marcia, just go directly to Hell, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

    • katie

      Can we still yell at her with ‘Maria’ as her middle name? Maria Lucia ‘Maria’ Hohan, shame on you! Ugly, ugly dress.

    • andreawey

      maybe they don’t know that zippers come in different lengths…..

    • MissAmynae

      I have yet to see a dress of hers that doesn’t have that tacky-ass illusion crap on the sides of the bodice. Penney’s is too good- I vote K-Mart.

    • demidaemon

      Will she be joining Stella McCartney and Peter Pilotto? Or do they have a special circle of hell all to themselves?

      • Those two have been on the reservation list for some time now.

    • TheAmericaness

      I just noticed that almost no one in the photos is really smiling. Could be how early in the morning it is, but mostly the faces range between a little ired to slightly bemused.

  • I’ve noticed the starlets wearing this Maria Lucia Hohan business lately. And it’s hideous every single time.

  • princessricky

    i cannot rationally explain the bilious disgust erupting from me at the site of those shoes

    • Those shoes are actually making me angry.

    • Jangle57

      I looked at those shoes and thought someone should ask her to count to 10 so she could show off doing it with her hooves….

      • VicD

        Total Diet Coke snort out the nose on that one.

      • Rebecca Jay

        oh good lord HAHAHAAhaha… took me a few beats to get it, but… DYING HERE!!
        clop clop clop

    • conniemd

      The dress is so hideous that my eyes never even got down to the shoes.

  • CPK1

    number 3 on your list made be cry with laughter. The shoes! The zipper! The side panels! And so on ad infinitum. That is the ugliest dress I have seen in quite some time. And those are most certainly the foulest shoes in ages

    • “But it’s a pretty color”, she said in a small voice, while agreeing with everything else you said.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    Her face in that last picture is the same one I made when looking at the abomination that are these photos.

  • Seriously – the first thing I noticed was that hideous zipper!

  • In_Stitches

    Maria Lucia has the audacity to call this dress the ‘Solange’…

    • Blasphemy. Oh no she didn’t.

    • barbarienne

      Probably because only Solange has a hope in hell of making this dress look at all presentable. Not that I want her to try.

      • Melizmatic

        Even Solange with the full blessing of Tim Gunn could not make that atrocity ‘work’…

    • I’d be offended if I were Solange. Or anyone else.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Sorry, just posted a similar comment before I saw yours. Audacity is the perfect word!

  • Maluca


    Just needed to get that off of my chest.

    • These are an extra special level of hellish platform pumps. They’re so awful they’re actually making me angry.

    • SugarSnap108

      Amen. Those shoes would be an abomination no matter what she was wearing.

  • NC_Meg

    It is SO unflattering, especially the bodice. It even looks awful on the model.

    At least it wasn’t a morning show appearance? That’s the only nice thing I can think of right now.

  • Violina23

    I like the color on her…. okay that’s all I’ve got 🙂

  • MilaXX

    That’s a lot of ugly for one dress

    • It’s as if there were some sort of checklist to make sure they didn’t miss a single ugly thing.

  • Tamara Hogan

    SHE’S WEARING HOOVES. Hooves, I say.

  • lehen

    my EYES! there is not enough coffee on the planet….

  • I think you should reverse her name, so that, as you pointed out yesterday TLo, you can say, “Lucia MARIA Hohan! WHAT were you thinking when you designed that dress?? And, Miss Jennifer MARIA Morrison, those shoes?”

    Or, as my grandmother used to say when sorely stressed, “Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all the saints in heaven.” Then she crossed herself.

    • Qitkat

      With apologies to your grandmother (and the uncles): ThomasLorenzoandMARIA!

  • MinasAunt

    I’m sorry but she looks ridiculous and I think she knows it. Why didn’t she refuse to wear this?

  • Carly Warnock

    My eyes… my eyes!! Those shoes though, what was her gay or gays thinking? Have you no gays? For shame!

  • Clodhoppers AND illusion netting “cutouts. Today can only go up from here, right?

  • Terrible designer. Even w/o the slip & shoes, that dress is horrid.

  • The tag for Maria Lucia Hohan on this post is Maria Lucia LOHAN. Which may actually be a better name for it…

  • notterriblybitter

    The dress is so hideous, my brain can’t process it. The shoes are slightly less hideous, so I’ll direct my ire at them instead.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    If this is her own choice of outfit, she should deserve her own bracket in Fug Madness.

    If this is an outfit chosen by a stylist, they should be ousted of every fashion-related business for life.

    I use the term “outfit” very loosely in here, seeing as it’s more of a skating outfit in the narrowest pit of HELL.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    She cannot be serious, utterly speechless at the hideousness of it all…that dress is an abomination, the shoes cannot be born…

  • RebeccaKW

    The color is amazing on her. I refuse to discuss anything else.

  • Little_Olive

    That is serious, serious fug. I’m not even going to go over the details, as TLo did it perfectly.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Who is this Maria Lucia Hohan person so we can thank her for giving us so much bitching material. According to my tally, this is 3 out of 3 for her, no?

  • formerlyAnon

    Anyone who thinks the zipper on the back looks good – or even acceptable – should not be allowed to dress themselves or others. Shoes are ugly and too heavy.

  • This is a design that gets a designer booted from Project Runway the second or third show of the season. It even features the visible zipper!

  • Maria Lucia Hohan appears to be the second coming of Stella.

    • MikeW_Vegas

      Even Stella’s not this bad.

  • Chartreusite

    Those side cut-outs are just way too weird for me. How dare Maria Lucia Hohan tarnish the name of Solange Knowles???

    • editrixie

      Well, to be fair, Solange as a name existed before Ms. Knowles. Not that this excuses it in any way.

  • The front of the dress has some interesting elements, and the color is gorgeous, but I can’t even appreciate them because of the crime that that dress is committing against her rear end. And the dress and the lining are SHEER. AND THAT ZIPPER. I also hate those shoes with the flaming hot passion of a thousand suns. To quote the Fug Girls, this dress is starting to make me CAPSY.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Who is this Maria Lucia Hohan, and why does she hate us so?

    • decormaven

      Truly! If our dear uncles caption another shot with MLH, I will not click on it. My eyes can’t take it.

  • I have so much hatred for those shoes.

  • The only good thing I can say about this dress is that the black trim they added at the back is a slight improvement on the mind-bogglingly hideous version on the model. The zip at the back looks like a wonky piece of balsa wood shoved down the back of the dress in case of some kind of model aeroplane building emergency.

    • this made me laugh out loud at work!

    • RoxieRider

      Yes! The posed, professionally lit model version looks so awful you’d have to assume it was a mistake. But evidently that nude panel slip thing underneath is SUPPOSED to be visible! God, that just… I sputter. So damn ugly. SO UGLY! I mean, sheer voluminous skirts like that can be absolutely lovely! It’s a sweet, pretty, classic silhouette for a skirt. But for the love of all that’s holy, just line the whole thing! Sputter sputter sputter.

  • nannypoo

    This is a seriously ugly dress with no positive qualities to recommend it. I also have issues with her arms in all of these pictures. She looks like some kind of bendable Barbie doll.

  • carnush

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen something this ugly.

  • Cathy S

    That dress is so horrible, but I think the shoes are even worse. I hate those shoes. But yeah, the dress is horrendous. That back, wow, I can’t even put it into words. Belly dancers have better back coverage.

  • Chartreusite

    You guys, check out the fifth picture of JennMo; does she look like she’s crying? Has this dress emotionally tortured her?

  • Lori

    The fact that the dress is called “Solange” is just all kinds of wrong. Solange is awesome and stylish and a multiple WERK winner. This dress is not awesome.

  • daisy_walker


  • Kyle Crawford

    WHY ?!?!… just why…..

    • Kyle Crawford

      and the shoes are beyond stupid

  • Ice-dancing ballgown.

    I was willing to give the dress the benefit of the doubt until I realized it had a visible zipper in the middle of the illusion netting, which both creeps me out and gives me the icks (is she supposed to look like she can unzip the saggy flesh on her back oh I think I just threw up in my mouth a little).

    I wanted to say this might be better as a day dress when you’re not subject to glaring flash and can wear it with flats, but really, those cutouts and illusion netting are not appropriate for day and I can’t actually think of any event where it might be appropriate. Evening beach/pool party? But- ILLUSION NETTING. I just can’t with this. It’s a dress without an occasion. Not her dress because it’s nobody’s dress.


  • Beardslee

    The day cannot come soon enough when all the powers that be actually look at hoof shoes and say, “what were we thinking?”. Surely, surely, in the coming years it won’t be just us grimacing at the sight of them.

  • l v

    This whole outfit makes me stabby. And those hooves! And that hair color! I cringe at the painful shade of blonde during every episode of Once Upon a Time. Does she pay someone a lot of money to keep it that color? You’d think they would try to steer her away? Then again, clearly a stylist couldn’t steer her away from this disaster… Ugh. Just UGH all around.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Not just the ugliest back, possibly the ugliest dress ever! Did they name it “Solange” for our favorite perfectly dressed woman? She would be appalled!

  • At first I thought it was a typical Versace dress.

  • Janet B

    I don’t know much about Maria Lucia Hohan, except she has designed some hideous dresses. Any publicity is good publicity, right?

  • Diana Martinez

    I love her, but how does she not know how to hold her face in front of a camera by now? Those are some seriously awful pictures. =(

  • Karen Tully

    Her feet look just like the feet of my yearling mule.

  • conniemd

    And she is one of my favorite TV actresses. So sad, because her looks really are wholesome.Send the outfit to JLo.

  • Jenny, change your gay. He clearly hates you.

  • Girl, that’s not A dress!

  • jetpackdino

    We can go to the moon, we have the technology to spy on everyone around the fucking world, we can cure many forms of cancer, and THIS is the best we can do for the back of this poor woman’s dress???

    • TheAmericaness

      If we sent this to North Korea, I think we could stun them into submission.

      • VicD

        OMG! Thank you for this comment. Now let’s actually try that….

        • TheAmericaness

          Your Very Welcome. 😀

  • It doesn’t even look good on the model. So why would you think it would look good on you or anyone? Why?

  • Mary Saucier

    Dress shmess – WHO is that adorable hipster wearing brogues in the second photograph from the top?

  • I declare Maria Lucia Hohan the new Stella McCartney

  • Ticky tacky award so far this week….And the stylist that chose this dress is???

    • formerlyAnon

      “And the stylist that chose this dress is???”

      Fired, I devoutly hope. Blackballed might be better.

  • OH MY GOD THAT ZIPPER. I can’t even.

  • SugarSnap108

    Those shoes are ludicrous. Possibly the worst incarnation of the dreaded platform pump I’ve seen. They’re so bad I can’t fully appreciate how bad the dress is.

  • Anathema_Device

    This dress isn’t even “cool” ugly or “I can see what she was going for” ugly. It is just a multitude of fashion sins bundled into one hideous dress. The awful, heavy shoes really seal the deal. The hooves seem to prove this is the devil’s work.

  • Melizmatic

    Heavens to Mergatroid; did she borrow Christina Aguilera’s ‘Evil Gays’, or something?

    Because whoever let her leave the dressing room wearing that hideous thing clearly hates her.

  • tereliz

    This dress makes me sad. The styling makes me angry. Jennifer Morrison makes me throw my hands up and sigh.

  • CatherineRhodes

    OH GOD, you’re so right. That dress is a crime against humanity.

  • unbornfawn

    That is one ugly dress, styled badly. Tears. There is nothing redeeming here. Awful!

  • Heather

    On the bright side, her cooch isn’t showing when she’s sitting, which is significant for an actress on a talk show.

  • The dress is awful, but I first saw it last night and most of the sins were hidden while she was sitting talking to Jimmy. It looked okay then. Seeing the pictures. Oy.

    My mind has blocked those shoes. It refuses to acknowledge they exist.

  • sk8tfan

    The back zipper looks like a giant thermometer. Taking the temperature in Hades, her hometown, judging by the cloven hooves.

  • what is mom jean ass?

    • alyce1213

      I think it means flat.

  • RussellH88

    I think she borrowed that dress from Roxxy Andrews.

  • Crystal

    I hate those shoes with the fire of a thousand suns.

  • stubbornthoughts


  • Trisha26

    Nothing more to say, really…crying.

  • jw_ny

    poor thing really has no clue as to just how ridiculous she looks…especially from behind.

  • jmorino08

    You guys! I just got reading glasses today, officially marking my descent into old age. I did NOT need my newly improved eyes to be assaulted like this first thing. Think of the children!

  • The rear view of that dress might be the most tragic thing I’ve ever seen here. If she doesn’t launch her stylist into the sun, she’s a better person than me. (That she could smile while wearing that already proves she’s a better actress than I could ever be.)

  • That zipper. It offends me.

  • editrixie

    I can’t stop looking at incredibly angry Rico Suave there in the background behind her. Is he angry at the photographers, or the dress?

    • Melizmatic

      It’s the dress; it physically assaulted his poor eyes from point blank range.

  • demidaemon

    You know, I had to look at this a few times to make sure her straps hadn’t fallen down. Then I realized it was just trim that looked fucked up. The shoes also make me sad. I think I will curl up in a ball now until my eyesight returns.

  • H2olovngrl

    This is what, the third appearance of a “Hohan” dress on here in the last month? So far I am totally unimpressed. WAY overdesigned. It like, skirted right up to pretty, then the bad embellishing and junior designer missteps took over. Too bad..

  • Anniebet

    The word “monstrosity” comes to mind. Those shoes need to be burned, along with the dress, and possibly the designer’s “license to design”.

  • greyhoundgirl

    Your post is as hysterically funny as the dress!

  • Beverly Kozma

    I thought the back had a couple of clothespins stuck on it, at first look.

  • quiltrx

    That is SO much hiddy in one dress. I’m not familiar with MLH until now…but if this is any sign, she’s McCartney-level evil.
    Do you think we could go on a quest to burn all the world’s illusion netting, thus creating a shortage that will only allow it to be rationed to figure skaters?

  • ThaliaMenninger

    While I was looking at this pictures, my TV was telling me about Backup Collision Intervention and I thought, wow, if only Jennifer Morrison had had that. Because she SO needed an intervention on the collision happening on her back end.

  • I have such a visceral sense of disgust looking at this dress, I can’t even express it in words. It’s the Britta of dresses.

  • TieDye64

    Straight from the pit of hell!

  • Hideous dress and hoof shoes.

  • librarygrrl64

    Oh, that poor, misguided young woman.
