    • Ms. Schmidt

      What are those side tail things? They totally derail the otherwise lovely dress.

      • Kiltdntiltd

        I completely concur. The dress was great till we got to the drooping side panels. I’m sure it looks all floaty and stuff in motion. but stationary, it just looks, damp.

    • MK03

      LOVE IT.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’ve never before cried “scroll down fug” because it’s not usually that simple in my brain. BUT.

      This is a poster for “just say NO to Marchesa.” It was such a lovely look until a few inches above the knees.

      • gabbilevy

        Scroll-down WTFug!! was my reaction.

      • eowyn_of_rohan

        This is your brain. This is your brain on Marchesa.

      • AlexisPayne

        Ditto to the scroll down fug. Also, it’s a skosh too tight, the earrings are a little too on point, and the shoes are hiddy.

      • poggi

        Yes, exactly. I had the same reaction, but I also had a moment of relief when I realized it was an awkward mutton-chop skirt and not a truly horrific jumpsuit.

        • kimmeister

          mutton chop is the perfect descriptor.

        • conniemd

          Yes mutton chops it is.

        • gdougs

          a testament to fashion these days that this is something we are relieved about haha

        • snarkmeister

          Yes. This. I thought it was the demonic spawn of a ruffled fungus-embroidered jumpsuit and chaps, in that first photo.

      • E. D.

        Exactly. The scraps on the sides and the shoes totally ruin it.

    • Tatiana Luján

      Did we do something wrong? Why have yo been bunishing is with ugly dresses the whole morning?

      • Vickiefantastico

        Seriously! One great picture of Fan is not enough!

      • foodycatAlicia

        Yes – I’m feeling like the big gay uncles are mad at us! Is this the price we pay for the epic mad style posts?

    • TDSE

      That first angle makes the dress look ALL KINDS of atrocious.

    • jennifervney

      Her dress is barfing.

    • Trisha26

      Beautiful look with unfortunate foo-foo leg warmers.

    • Glam Dixie

      I feel I’m going to be in the minority here, but I really like it. It’s even more beautiful in motion on the runway.

    • Gabriella M

      When I first scrolled down I thought this was a jumpsuit. It’s an ok dress but she needs some fiercer posing.

    • Emily Smith

      girlfriend needs to pull her shoulders up and back, her posture makes me sad.

      • RoxieRider

        Yes, she’s not helping the dress with how she’s posing. It’d take someone pretty impressive to make those tendrils look flattering, but I don’t think she realizes she’s enhancing the sensation that she’s wearing a strange jumpsuit by posing the way she might in, say, a pencil skirt.

    • hillmad

      It looks like her legs have developed a terrible fungus!

    • schadenfreudelicious

      oh my, for Marchesa it actually held promise till i got to the double mullet action…and not to diss tattoos, but that X on her finger looks like one you would get in prison…..

      • rajf

        ^ Yes! about this particular tattoo (and most finger tattoos, really…)

    • Molly

      This dress defies classification. It’s not a mullet skirt. Sort of pigtails? Payos?

      • Ginny Ellsworth

        Drapes? Curtains?

      • alyce1213

        Payos!!!! Love.

    • PeggyOC

      How do we stop Marchesa?

      • Sarah

        How do you solve a problem like Marchesa?
        What do you do with trim to calm it down?
        How do you solve a problem like MARCHESA!!!
        Those are far too fussy gowns!

        (couldn’t help it)

    • Tatiana Luján

      Why aren’t people tired of nude embroidered dresses?

      • formerlyAnon

        I am tired of them in general. BUT in this case, I was thinking “Now THIS is an example of embroidered nude/sheer that’s working. It’s lovely!” until I got down to a few inches above the knees. The fluffery ending in a bifurcated half-mullet of fluffery ruined it.

        • teensmom99

          FormerlyAnon, it’s like you read my mind.; Yes to all you say.

    • MilaXX

      Would be cute without the leg curtains.

      • andreawey

        looks like she got attacked by the cat before she walked out the door….

    • annabelle archer

      Won’t those little hangy down pieces get caught in her skates during the double axle?

    • Kate

      Please burn it all except the earrings. Do it now.

    • MajorBedhead

      No and no and no and no.

      I really dislike Marchesa. And nude dresses. And whateverthefuck that is hanging down her legs. So much for the Bing Bing eye balm.

    • Anathema_Device

      Is it ugly clothes day and no one told me?

    • decormaven

      Firecracker explosion hem. The horror.

    • jilly_d

      The way she is standing in the first shot makes it look like the worst pantsuit ever made. TLo, are we being punished today?

      • Janet B

        Just prepping you for PR tonight

    • Barbara Woodruff

      It looks like she has a rash. Or she’s being attacked by some kind of alien vine.Either way, not a good look.

    • Jessi03

      The very definition of “scroll-down fug.” It looked so gorgeous up top! Why? Why was that necessary?

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Figure skating goes Flamenco. Yuck.

    • zenobar

      You know, I’d always assumed that a floating hot dog motif could only improve, well, anything. I now see that I was wrong.

    • Kelly Sowers

      This would be better even if it was just a simple hi-lo dress, instead of the hi-lo-hi-lo fug going on.

    • notterriblybitter

      It looks like she’s wearing bedazzled chaps in the first picture and it’s downhill from there. Downhill from bedazzled chaps is very far down.

      • marlie


    • lrober03

      It looks like she was wearing a pantsuit and then someone slashed it. Not good.

    • Melizmatic

      A dual ‘side mullet’ dress?


    • Imasewsure

      What fresh hell is this….

    • ceceliadid

      First picture: she’s ready for a knee-high showing of the lonely goatherd.

    • María Foulquié


    • tereliz

      I will never understand the allure of the Fu-Manchu hemline.

      • alyce1213

        Is that a thing, or did you make it up? Hilarious.

        • tereliz

          It must be a thing! How else would you describe such a universally flattering silhouette? 😉

    • TheAmericaness

      I guess the design team of Marchesa are under the impression that they must use all the fabric since there are children in China with no fabric at all.

      • BrooklynBomber


    • unbornfawn

      I have to go back to the Fan Bing Bing photo, Too many bad fashion choices today. Ugh.

      • BrooklynBomber

        Fan Bing Bing is our sorbet for the day.

    • frannyprof

      In the first pic, the dress looks like a pantsuit, which is a bad bad thing.

    • marlie

      Another “scrolldown fug” dress. The bottom is just… AWFUL. And let’s not speak of those shoes. But hey, her hair and makeup look great.

    • Janet B

      I’ll go get some scissors and we can get rid of that nonsense.

      • alyce1213

        She should lend it to Lindsay Lohan, she knows how to.

    • disqus_hbdPAeXyee

      those crazy side fringes look like ‘bizarro-chaps’

    • susan6

      At first glance…..”are those…..pants? No, it’s just a dress with ridiculous sideburns.” What fresh hell is this, indeed.

    • Sara__B

      Definitely Marchesa. Too bad.

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      Everything was relatively fine until those things hanging on the side.

    • Ten Ten

      Why does that dress have a mullet…on both sides? :(

    • Kent Roby

      Mullet dresses are bad enough, but this Cocker Spaniel Eared dress is much worse.

      • ballerinawithagun

        A mullet would have been a big improvement.

    • LipstickForPigs

      It’s like they hired a wolverine to hem the dress.

      • Ten Ten

        Or Edward Scissorhands. Without an assistant. X____X

        • MilaXX

          Or wolverine with Edward Scissorhands as the assistant.

          • Ten Ten

            You, my friend, are a certified visionary. LMAO!!!!!.

    • musicandmochi

      Hilariously awful. I literally laughed out loud when I scrolled down.

    • crash1212

      Pretty make-up and hair. That’s all I got.

    • Crystal


    • CT14

      Scroll down fug! I thought it was a Marchesa that I didn’t hate, but what the what? A dress with chaps?

      Just no, Georgina.

      Ms. Monroe, get better stylists stat.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      There are worse places than the outer thighs that one could contract a fungal infection. Like the inner thighs.

    • Deedles

      Ice dancing costume.

    • marilyn

      She gets lost in the nude color of the ‘dress’ from a distance. That dress/stage costume is way too busy. It needs serious editing. The print is busy, and the structure is too busy. Pick one, not both. It looks like a design school project that gets a C-.

    • Gloriana Reginata

      I can’t help seeing it as a horde of tiny red spiders crawling all over her; which, yes, nightmare dress.

    • brcurrs

      sea creature

    • stubbornthoughts

      Thought those were ruffle pants at first. And they might as well be.

    • lizlemonglasses

      Scroll-down hemorrhage!

    • Jackie Atkins


    • Bert Keeter


    • Susan Collier

      Jellyfish-algae couture.
      That is straight-up hideous. People pay money to wear that?

    • alyce1213

      Once again icky crap falls from the sky and lands indiscriminately on some poor starlet. Lo and behold – it’s a Marchesa!

    • MzzPants

      It’s a crustacean costume.

    • Pamela Hunt

      That dress haz a sad.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Wow, she looks good …….. oh noooooooo!

    • luluransom

      What did we do to piss you off today, boys? That’s 3 outta 4 eye-searing looks.

    • ashpo17

      She looks like a Man o’War with dangling leg-tentacles waiting to ensnare passersby…

    • demidaemon

      Somebody forgot the front of her dress! Also, I feel like her vagina might be coming out to play peekaboo.

    • Anniebet

      Well, the item that clinches the vast and burning despair I feel looking at these pictures is… that stupid X tattoo on her finger. See, I’m trying to ignore the dress. Focus on the tattoo.

    • Margaret Davis

      UGH! Make the side things — cutlets? — go away…NOW. as anthony marintino would say, “nice beadwork though. NEXT!

    • quiltrx

      I was SO happy when I saw the thumbnail…”yes, netting involved, but pretty much my kind of Marchesa.” Then I had to open the post and see the whole damned hideous thing.
      It looks like she was drunk-dancing in some hoof shoes and ripped the snot out of the gown front AND back.

    • embers618

      Super cute from the waist up. I’m trying to pretend I didn’t see the rest.

    • Jenna

      Wow. First time ever looking at something here on this site where my first honest reaction was to exclaim, outloud (granted, only to my cat Pandora) “good GOD that is hideous!”

      So… yay for causing a reaction perhaps?

      Never wear clothing that looks like the “Before” photo in an ad for a type of feminine hygiene cream to be used to clear up exotic topical skin eruptions of your ladybits. One of my personal top tier rules for dressing, really.

    • ccm800

      unfinished flamenco jumpsuit? wtf?

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      It all goes to hell at the knees.

    • Guest

      Exactly – the side ruffles and shoes totally ruin it.

    • Allison Nichols

      It’s like a dress made out of a rash. With frilly chaps.

    • TheAmericaness

      I do like those models shoes…….

    • librarygrrl64

      Oh, this is really feminine and pre– OMFG, WTF happened to that dress below the waist?!?
