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

    • 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.

    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!

    • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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?

  • 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….

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • just…eeeww

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • Why does that dress have a mullet…on both sides? 🙁

  • 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.

    • Or Edward Scissorhands. Without an assistant. X____X

      • MilaXX

        Or wolverine with Edward Scissorhands as the assistant.

        • 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!

  • Sigh.

  • OLE’!

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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?!?
