    Girl, that’s not your face. Next time, just back away from the collagen and the botox, m’kay?

    • I thought it was just very severe make-up giving her that cold waxy look.

      • SouthernGirlRena

        Apparently the only acceptable options for lips are nude or color you can see from space.

      • drdarke

        I don’t mind the face – I think the severity works with the outfit and her blondeness.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I LOVE that dress. She’s wearing it well, but she has no clue what to do with her face.

    • mshesterp

      I think the dress is super cute…I’m just ignoring what’s going on north of the neck (I almost wrote “North of the Wall…what is this, GoT??)

      • stubbornthoughts

        Well she IS in all black. “You know nothing of makeup and hair, Kate Snow.”

        • mshesterp

          Laughed. My. Rear off. Thank you, friend!

      • drdarke

        “North of the Wall” is where even Crows get laid, @mshesterp:disqus – so it’s not all bad up there!

    • random_poster

      Yes! Gorgeous dress. Hair/make-up are icky.

  • Lovely dress, but I desperately want to ruffle some life into her hair.

  • The whole head is terrible. The dress looks fantastic.

  • Introspective

    the dress is classic and works well for her.

    though i get the distinct feeling that the left babyhead wants to break free in pics 1, 3, and 4.

  • oatmealpie

    The dress looks lovely on her, but Christina Hendricks would ROCK it.

  • This outfit is like the love child of Emilia Clarke’s embellishments and Octavia Spencer’s beautiful fit.
    I’m not usually a fan of bangs but it seems to me that Miss Kate needs a little relief for that wide expanse of forehead.

  • MilaXX

    Lovely look. I am just not a fan of round toe platform pumps. These are as bad as Kelly O’s were, but they aren’t my pic for the look .

  • I like the dress but there’s too much Botox in your face, darling!

  • frannyprof

    Wait–is she actually in a movie? A real one? Where she had to memorize lines and stuff? Or is this just another paid appearance?

  • Beautiful dress. I wish she were wearing the gloves too, that would be awesome!

  • Hetha Innis

    That’s HER dress! That’s NOT her head, though.

  • Sarah

    I want the dress to be more form fitting around the knees – a true pencil skirt. I also want bitch to eat a damn sandwich. She has been a lollipop head for too long, and it gets on my nerves. It is, however, a lovely dress.

  • snooze.

  • eandh99

    This would be the fellow she broke up with Alexander Skarsgard for. Oy.

    • demidaemon


    • julnyes

      She was dating the only blond man I will ever love and left him?

      No accounting for taste.

  • Pretty, if a bit boring.

  • decormaven

    Great LBD, but the hair stylist and MUA missed on this one.

  • JasmineAM

    I think the model is rocking it far better than her. Has Bosworth always been this tiny?

    • Sarah

      Nope. Normal human sized in Blue Crush, then she got the “I must be skinny for Hollywood” bug and became a total stick. It’s unseemly.

  • Lips are too bright and not a good color for her, hair is too flat, dress is lovely though.

  • disqus_sTZisa86Se

    Frightening. Poor thing is so skinny (toothpick legs!), with that severe hair and tight smile all I could think was “bobblehead doll.” Could someone PLEASE feed her?

  • Trisha26

    Don’t care for the limp hair, shocking lipstick or toothpick limbs – but the dress is fab.

  • jmorino08

    Classy and gorgeous! Wish she’d worn more interesting shoes, though!

  • Pretty. Classy, simple and elegant.

  • librarygrrl64

    Lovely, but I think the lips are too strong for such flat, limp hair.

  • jw_ny

    lips and black..that’s all I see.

  • PeaceBang

    The varnished face on one so young pains me. The dress is amazing… on the model.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Love the dress, hat the shoes, don’t mind the hair and makeup.
    I think she looks very good.

  • crash1212

    God. The hair and the LIPS just kill this look for me. It’s a pretty dress, but this time she shortened it too much and the proportions are all wonky. This is a big fat miss.

  • formerlyAnon

    Oh no. For as much work as visibly went into this, the result is a sin.
    Awful hair. The lip is too strong for my tastes and unbalances her head. The dress would have been so much more chic if they’d kept the narrower silhouette on the skirt. At best, adequate shoes, and (I know many will disagree) she needed the polish of stockings.

  • FrigidDiva

    I know there are some people out there that are genuinely skinny and have a hard time putting on weight, but she just seems skeletal to me. That bold lip really makes her lips seem too big for her head and her head just seems to big for her body. The dress is lovely, but I’d love to see it on someone like Kate Winslet or Christina Hendricks.

    • Shannon Long

      She was much more muscular in Blue Crush, although I know she had to put on a lot of muscle for that. But to eyes, she has looked unnaturally thin for some time now. It’s a shame really, she’s very pretty but she always looks sad and frail to me.

  • Imasewsure

    Hideous hair and makeup… a Hitchcock Blond you are not!! Dress is more interesting on the model (not her hair either) but I think it’s a combo of the broader shoulders and the awesome gloves

  • Lovely, though very plain, dress. Not helped in the plainess department by the boring shoes and bag. I like the model’s version better with the skirt nipped in at the hem. That aside, hmm, I know Kate is a tiny thing but doing her hair and make-up and, whatever she has injected into her face, so severe does not do a skinny gal any favors. Someone get her a kicky do and some softer make-up STAT! And don’t forget the pizza.

  • Shannon Long

    Kate is so pretty, but I just can’t for the life of me understand why she’s still famous. She’s not dating my TV boyfriend Alexander Skarsgard anymore is she?

  • That dress needs the gloves. For that matter, so do I.

  • Her hair and make-up are appalling but that dress is gorgeous.

  • AlisonS

    Her head ruins this look….

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties


  • Anniebet

    What? Did her hairdresser have a melt down and use Brylcreem on her hair? More than a little dab, obviously. Nice dress, too much lip.

  • Louise Bryan

    Majorly gorgeous little black dress. I’m ignoring the “styling” of the wearer.

  • quiltrx

    Now I’m wracking my brain trying to figure out in which classic film (and on which actress) I’ve seen that bodice before. I’ll come up with it eventually, I bet.
    Anyway, I LOVE the dress…but WTF with her ENTIRE HEAD? Her hair looks dirty and plastered down…which is making her head look huge (and I’ve never thought it did before). And she looks totally Botox’d north of the lips. Which are hideously red.

  • eat a burger.

  • golden_valley

    I never noticed how much she looks like Gena Davis. Dress is great.

  • TheAmericaness

    Uh oh. Someone didn’t pay attention and checkboxed “Japanese Anime Cartoon Head” on the plastic surgery form… Her and that food network lady, omg – Live action anime sploosh weird

  • I love ODLR’s take on the LBD. Overall she looks great, but her hair needs just a tad volume. Its a bit greasy looking here.

  • People are still designing that dress?

  • jetpackdino

    Love the dress, love love love. But from the neck up she looks odd. Disconcertingly odd. Can we blame the lighting…?

  • I love this outfit, hair, and makeup. The contrasts drive me wild! And yet this is somehow still a “clean” look.

  • sweet_potato

    I love this dress, in fact, I’ve been crushing on it since I saw it on the runway. It looks okay on Kate but it feels boring and kinda flat. Kate’s not the right starlet for this dress.

  • kathrineb

    I actually really like the bold red lip with this look and I like the dress too. If I had lips like that I would show them off too!

  • Kristy Evans

    I feel like this dress would be better suited to a lady with more curves. That skirt is supposed to be more of a pencil and it’s practically a flare skirt on Kate. Get this to Christina Hendricks, STAT!

  • guest2visits

    I think she looks gorgeous in this – I even miss the long gloves.

  • ccm800

    OMG – I know I know its ano no but SERIOUSLY Someone FEED these people! BOTH of them STAT. DAYUM
