Jennifer Morrison in Edition by Georges Chakra

Posted on May 15, 2013

Y’know? We’re gonna have to give this one to her. She gets a LOT of shit wrong on the red carpet, which is frustrating as hell because it’s a milieu in which being a tall, thin, blonde white woman means you’re playing the game on the lowest difficulty setting. And yes, this is what it is:

 

Jennifer Morrison attends the premiere of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ in Hollywood, California in an Edition by Georges Chakra jumpsuit.

Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2013 Collection

Which is to say: a pale blue sequined jumpsuit; something that really shouldn’t work anywhere on anyone. And yes, the shoes are horrifying. You should see our looks of horror right now. But the color is dead right for her, the shimmer works nicely, and her hair, makeup and jewelry are all great. We wish more than anything this ended in a skirt rather than pant legs, but we’ve learned to take what we can get from the chronically style-challenged. We’ll give her an “Attagirl” of encouragement for this one. It’s at least one of her better efforts, and there’s more right than wrong going on here.

      that crotch…

    • Missy Covington

      That amount of spacey-sparkle is perfectly appropriate for a Star Trek premiere. Likely nowhere else, but for this kinda thing I’m all in favor of leaning to the costume-y side of things.

      [Says the woman wearing the "Adopt a Tribble" t-shirt to go see the movie in an IMAX facility tonight...]

      • MilaXX

        I have a red shirt I plan to wear.

        • Eclectic Mayhem

          Be careful out there!

          *doesn’t want MilaXX to come to any typical Red Shirt mishaps*

        • IMNAngryLiberal

          I have a red shirt with a star trek insignia with a skull and crossbones in the middle (meant to commemorate all of those poor unnamed members of the landing party) that I plan to wear.

          • MilaXX

            mine has the insignia, but not the skull & crossbones

          • Anathema_Device

            My son has a red shirt with Expendable written across the front in Star Trek font.

          • Missy Covington

            I have red shirt zombie shirt with the caption, “He’s Undead, Jim”. :D

              I have that one too!!

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Don’t do it!! We’ll never see you again!

      If this had been a dress, I would have been clapping with glee. If the shoes has been anything other than putty, I would be singing with praise. As is now, I am just disappointed at her frustrating inability to make better choices.

      • Missy Covington

        I agree on the putty shoes, though I’m not sure what would have been a better choice. Strappy silver would have been clashing/too much with the blue sparkle. White would have pushed it to resort-ish. . .

        • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

          This is where I would have love to have seen the elusive pop of color. But I think a silver would have worked as a safe bet like the putty is thought to be.

        • Adriana_Paula

          I just wish they weren’t Louboutins, because that red peeking out makes everything worse.

      • maggiemaybe

        I thought the same thing. The color and sequins and so pretty–and then you get to the pants part… and then the shoes. GAH!

    • aeb1986

      weird crotch… otherwise its sorta fun. but it seems like this outfit is making her look like her proportions are off…which i know they are not

    • PastryGoddess

      The whole reason I came was to point and laugh at yet another bad look by Jennifer Morrison.And then I got here and what do you know. She looks fab in that color AND HER PANTS ARE HEMMED to properly show off her ugly shoes.

      She is giving off Tall Cool Drink of Water realness. Soggy snaps girl

      • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

        Check out the model’s version–the bottom couple inches are unlined, which is kind of a solution to the looong pants/missing feet problem.

    • http://twitter.com/steeenie Christine Hart

      The key here is 1) fit; 2) length, and finally 3) the fact that the design was smart, it’s simple, and really, I didn’t realize it was even pants until a second look. Not bad for baby blue sequins.

    • homofascist

      Seriously. It is like they went ahead and installed a camel toe, just in case the wearer didn’t have one on her own.

      • CPK1

        you read my mind. It has built in camel toe. As if jumpsuits are not hideous enough in and of themselves

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Done. Finished. Lock the post, Uncles, this one’s a total winner!

    • http://twitter.com/Moondragonic Charlotte

      Hah, it looks like some thing from Star Trek- oh I see what you did there.

    • Pixie

      That’s hideous. It doesn’t look good on the model either.

    • titaness25

      Yay, she got good makeup gunkles. Yes, the shoes are a great tragedy, but she looks cute, all things considered.

    • Zaftiguana

      Okay…I’m kind of loving this. I know I shouldn’t, but I think I do. And at a Star Trek premiere? Forget it. She’s giving me Disco Fabulous Deanna Troy Realness, and I’m adoring every minute of it. I can’t help it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

        “Disco Fabulous Deanna Troy Realness” is possibly the best descriptive phrase ever. Bravo.

        • Missy Covington

          Here-here!

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Well, with that, you’ve caused me to reconsider everything.

      • Valdri8

        Fucking perfect comment.

      • Rand Ortega

        Disco Fabulous Deanna Troy Realness. F.T.W!

      • Missy Covington

        Hmmm… I’m thinking it’s more Lwaxana Troi… the sparkle is pure Betazoid Ambassador realness.

      • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

        That “Disco Fabulous Deanna Troy Realness” comment just made my day. :)

    • elirt

      It works from the shoulders up, everything else is a big fail. It looks terrible – how unfortunate that this is the best she’s looked in a while.

    • appliquer

      I love it!

    • nannypoo

      I’m afraid the most positive thing I can say about this is that it doesn’t look worse on her than it does on the model.

      • Allison Drury

        I totally agree. And she is standing up straight, shoulders back which is worth something in my book. Imagine Lena Dunham in this get up.

        • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

          Now I just did. You stop that.

    • alyce1213

      Must always leave room for exceptions — the cut of this jumpsuit is quite good and it fits her perfectly. Look how good her butt looks. So in spite of all usual jumpsuit reservations, I like it, I really like it.

    • Anathema_Device

      I think the fit or style or whatever is horribly unflattering on her from the front. She does look good from the back, and the color is great on her.

      • sojourneryouth

        If this were belted, it would look better, maybe. It just seems to be such a looooooong trip from her shoulders to her crotch, which makes her seem waistless and boxy in the middle, which she is not.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      Hips up, it looks great. Her face and hair are gorgeous. I’m not sold on the pants suit thing (and probably never will be), but this is not a bad look for her.

    • Coolekat

      What would be the right shoes?

      • PastryGoddess

        Not those

        Seriously if you’re going to go with a sparkly sequined jumpsuit then the least you can do is throw on a metallic shoe

        • Jackie4g

          Pewter metallic? Silver? maybe if someone made an opalescent metallic, but really, that’d be tough to find.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      There is a pooch factor that is not working for me, seems to be happening on the model as well.

      • jetpackdino

        At first glance I thought she was pregnant.

        Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but if she’s not…

    • hughman

      I’ll Plant My Own Tree!

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        You made me google. I’ve said it before, but your references never fail to impress me.

      • formerlyAnon

        Thanks for sending me to youtube to watch Susan Hayward/Helen Lawson sing under a giant mobile – and remembered getting some kind of kit to make a similar mobile (smaller scale, obviously) as a young teen or tween. The things we completely forget!

    • Anniebet

      My first impression – omg, do I really like a jumpsuit?! Then I looked further… there are some little problems that make this less than great, for me anyway. The crotch does not work, nope, no sir, not at all. And what schadenfreud referred to as the pooch factor is distracting. Cannot believe people are still wearing those shoes. At least the hem isn’t on the ground. Extra points for that.

      But, she looks pretty, like the hair a lot, the color is fantastic, and the over the shoulder shot is cute as hell.

      My mermaid barbie had a scrunchie in exactly the same material

    • MilaXX

      I honestly wouldn’t mind if she had a better shoe on. As silly as it is to say this, she looks good in this sky blue, glittery jumpsuit. On the other hand, I would LOVE to see Kelly Rowland in this. She would knock it out of the park.

      • PastryGoddess

        IN-DEED! or Solange rocking the fro

    • Pennymac

      Um, as jumpsuits go this is less hideous than most?

      Makeup, hair, and color; all very nice. Sparkly/camel toe/pooch/heinous shoes? Not so much.

    • Amanda

      Oh my goodness. No. This is horrible.

    • DominoEstella

      This is seriously unflattering.. OUT! Look at her mid section!

    • Lilithcat

      I’d be all over this if it were a gown. I hate jumpsuits. Only women who never have to pee can wear jumpsuits.

    • Rand Ortega

      Love it. Very Sci Fi. Minor quibble– The sandals should’ve been silver, other than that, she looks like 1 of “Mudd’s Women” when they were smokin’.

      • Missy Covington

        Oooh, yes! Mudd’s Women! Perfect reference.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      She’s another one who looks best in simple lines. I would kill to have those arms and that back again.

    • conniemd

      Love the hair and make-up. Best she has looked in a while.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Who would have thought that she’d get it mostly right with a baby blue sequined jumpsuit?!?! Her hair and makeup look fab, and the color and sequins look really good on her. Plus, everything fits well, which shouldn’t be a bonus, but it is.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        She is another who we will have to keep assessing on a curve.

    • frannyprof

      Hate to disagree with you. TLo, but this is hecka unflattering on her midsection. Thickens her, even though she is probably the size of my little finger.

    • ali meowmeow

      I think she and Zoe must’ve gotten drunk and accidentally switched looks.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=752912994 Bernadette Ulsamer

      At least the hem is right. Better than lookbook pic.

    • gracedarling

      She looks really toned and muscular, like a fabulous Russian gymnast hitting up Studio 54. I like it!

      • Winter_White

        What a great image.

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

      Yep, can’t get past the sequined labia. Sorry.

      • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

        falling out over here. it’s sooooo true!!!

      • oohsparkley!

        Her behind looks fabulous though! This should be a walking-away outfit.

    • kimiakay

      A jumpsuit is a very hard thing to pull off. And Jennifer is doing it. I love the color, it works for her really well. The hair and makeup are perfect, and the minimal jewelry is just the right touch. Brava, Jennifer.

    • GorgeousThings

      To be fair, it’s a sequinned bikini wax on the model, too. That’s just wrong.
      ETA, it looks like she borrowed the shoes from the photo shoot.

    • blueberrypanckae

      It’s like those baton twirler uniforms from the 80’s !

    • snarkykitten

      She looks kinda like a Barbie.

    • Call me Bee

      The color is drop-dead beautiful, but no one should even leave their house in a sequined jumpsuit. Ever.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Oh shit no.

      Interesting in theory, but in execution the only part that works is the front of the bodice. Even grading on a curve, if only one quarter of your clothing is non-horrifying? It doesn’t matter how good the hair, makeup and coloring is, I’ll save my attagirl for another day.

    • AmeliaEve

      For me, the pantsness is kinda what makes this work. Maybe I am just used to seeing her in her kickass lady sheriff outfits, but she looks more comfortable with herself here than she has in the girly-girl dresses she has attempted lately. The fit is not 100%, but it’s not terrible and the color is amazing on her. I like it.

    • kmk05

      I am just so happy that we can see the horror of her shoes. I can’t stand those hoof-pants were the pants trail on the floor.

    • Amelia

      The chipped nail polish confuses the hell out of me. It clearly matches the dress and must have been worn just for this event, but it is old enough to have chipped?

      • Julia H

        I wondered if I was imagining the chipped nails!!! WTH? Her arms look amazing.

      • RebeccaKW

        I rarely have problems with nail polish-I love crazy nails, so it doesn’t bother me to see them on the red carpet. But nothing drives me crazier than chipped polish. Now, I know at work, it chips, oh well, I’ve still gotta work and also hit the grocery store before going home. But then I fix it. I wouldn’t spend all day getting my hair and makeup done by professionals, dressed by a stylist, in a free gown (er, pantsuit), head to an event where I will be photographed hundreds of time by hundreds of people from all angles, and not have someone at least touch up my chips.

        Hm. Apparently, chipped polish is my hot button.

        • Amelia

          I know exactly what you mean! And if she didn’t have time to redo it, it would have only taken 5 minutes to remove it, so there’s no excuse for it on the red carpet.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002718877231 Bert Keeter

      This belongs in previous decade…

    • ankali

      I don’t think her hair and makeup have ever looked better. I’m not so into the jumpsuit, but she looks incredibly pretty regardless.

    • katavina

      Okay, so we all know J Morr has a svelte, slammin body, no question. However. Even at a size 2 she is still of the broad shoulders, athletic build type, and she clearly has no idea how to dress that. Stop with the boatneck sleeveless numbers, already, which only give you shelf-boob and no waist. Seriously, how has no one shown this girl the magic of a halter or racerback?

      I wouldn’t think it would need to be said to reject the built-in cameltoe crotch and the Liza-impersonator-on-a-cruise sequins campaign, but apparently I put too much faith in celebs with stylists.

    • CommentsByKatie

      This is weird, but I have to give her props just for being brave enough to wear it. Better shoes might have saved the whole thing.

    • ZnSD

      too bad she’s such a shitty actress.

    • TheAmericaness

      Rhythmic gymnastics?

    • Claudia

      I…really quite like it. *shrug*

    • atelier482 .

      If only it was a gown. With some nice styling then it’s a WERQ already. Love the color on her.

    • bellafigura1

      Fine, but all those edges and shards and sharp glittery things require loose hair.

    • Lesley

      yikes too much glitz, and its not doing her mid section a favor (2nd photo from the bottom)- and this is a thin woman so that says something.

    • carnush

      Oh GOD THE SHOES!!! WHY!!!??? Were there no strappy sandals to be found in the vicinity of Los Angeles? Good lord.

    • Jessi03

      Girl. What are you doing. Stop it.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      I actually think this is perfect for a Star Trek premier. Yes, it’s strange and kinda ugly, but is also has a sci-fi feel to it.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I agree that I wish it ended in a skirt. Hip-up she looks the best I’ve ever seen her!

    • RussellH88

      If it were pink, it would kinda look like Roxxy’s outfit from the Scent of a Drag Queen runway.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1180174329 Elizabeth Phillips

      And is she pregnant? Because I didn’t think so until I saw her in this…

      • LJCdoc

        I had teh same thought, and then looked again at the model. That jumpsuit is nobody’s tummy’s friend.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Obviously a stilt walker costume. You can’t just throw a pair of platform shoes under it and think that’s gonna work.

    • Mary Saucier

      I wish she’d go back to being a brunette. This shade of blonde is not as horrifying as it usually is, but I don’t think blonde suits her.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I’m so fucking over nude shoes, I just can’t deal anymore. I love the jumpsuit, but I think – I *think* – she could have gotten away with a silver shoe for this one. Other than the shoes, and the slightest hint of Sequined Camel Toe, she looks good.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Hoof shoes + jumpsuit = horse hiding behind a fancy curtain.

    • MoHub

      Is it my imagination, or is ice blue starting to show up a lot these days? Patricia seems to have been ahead of the curve.

    • JP

      AUGH! The patent nude platform peeptoe! I swear if we were to make a drinking game that said you have to drink every time a ladystar wears these damn things, we’d all die of alcohol poisoning in less than a week.

      Wearing that jumpsuit takes guts.

    • teensmom99

      I can see your point but she looks like some forgettable (forgotten?) 1970s starlet to me.

    • formerlyAnon

      That’s a fairly fabulous jumpsuit, and I dislike jumpsuits on principle. Too bad that shiny jumpsuits just aren’t going to be flattering on anyone. So she looks well-put together but not fabulous.

    • l_c_ann

      It fits her not, nor does it flatter.

    • CeeQ

      …is insane.

    • jmorino08

      Anything that makes her look like she had a three-burrito lunch is an evil spawn of satan!

    • NoGovernmentName

      Sorry gentlemen, but this is hideous. Both the model and Jennifer look like they have a paunch, when I know for sure they don’t.

    • http://twitter.com/DuBey2 Marie Fessler

      …. OH, I just realized: she’s the OTHER girl from “House”. But here, her arms and that cut kinda make it look like she’s getting ready to go throw the discus. (NOT the webhost)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=768540908 Badriya Al-Badi’a

      I think she tends to look better in pants or trousers, or something with a bit of punch or an edge–somehow ultra feminine never quite works for her. Honestly she looks better in her Once Upon a Time uniform of jeans, boots and jacket than she does in most of her red carpet appearances.

    • akprincess72

      Sorry, I’m a tall, plus-size, raven-haired white woman & I could find something to kick this outfit’s butt…
