Jennifer Morrison in Kristian Aadnevik

Posted on May 20, 2013

We realize that most music awards ceremonies allow for a little leeway in terms of style. Any event that invites Nicki Minaj is an event where cray on the red carpet is to be expected.

Even so:


Jennifer Morrison attends the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada in a Kristian Aadnevik sheer dress accessorized with a Edie Parker clutch and Amrapali and Le Vian jewelry.

Kristian Aadnevik Fall 2013 Collection

Girl, please.

This isn’t so much cray-cray in the Minaj sense as it’s just some lingerie she’s wearing in public. J Lo can get away with stuff like this because she’s J Lo and because she uses it as stagewear. Jennifer’s pretty and she’s got the bod to pull this off, but because of the conventionality of her good looks, she just looks like someone who wandered out onto the red carpet without getting dressed.

And she’s really got to tone down the cocker spaniel hair. It’s starting to look a little dated.

    Hair, makeup and jewelry are gorgeous (put I agree with the puppy-dog issue). However, this outfit (not a dress) is something you’d expect to see on Madonna!

    • drdarke

      I don’t know – I think wearing her Mom’s negligee to an awards ceremony is a bold choice myself, @appliquer:disqus ….

      PS: She looks more uncomfortable trying to pose for the runway than Jennifer Lawrence.

      • This is not right for her, however I think it’s the most put together the Gael’s ever looked…

  • Just… NO. And it doesn’t help that it doesn’t quite fit properly, anyway.

    • Exactly. If you’re going to do this, do it right. Damn. She is just SO bad, a clear front runner for worst dressed of the year.

    • Watts

      It’s like she needs to go up a cup-size? The underwire isn’t on her ribcage, it’s on the breast itself. (Look at the right breast in the first picture to see what I mean.)


      • THIS. And the bottom doesn’t quite fit her posterior correctly, either. If she were wearing the undies, say, UNDER clothing, there’d be all sorts of weird VPL problems.

  • aeb1986

    That’s just wayyyy too much ass hanging out in the back. Even for the billboard music awards.

    • It’s not so much the amount of ass, it’s just not hanging out properly.

    • I saw this on tumblr last night, and all I could think was “GIRL I CAN SEE YOUR ASS”.

  • sagecreek

    Oh, honey. I wish you could carry this off, but you cannot.

    • ampg

      So true – she seems to want to wear these really high-level looks, but she just can’t pull them off. And she could do so well for herself if she would work a more standard Hollywood-blonde look.

  • JP

    “Hi! I’m auditioning for the biopic of Elvira…”

    Oh honey, no.

    • I was thinking the Behind the Music special on Like a Virgin back up stage dancers.

  • teensmom99

    Can’t wait to see the gown she is planning on putting on over this.

  • Girl, fire your stylist. That isn’t even fit to be stagewear. This obliterates that line between fashion-forward and trashy and steams right on ahead for miles. It even looks like she rolled up the bottom to show more ass??? Either that or the cut is crazy uneven. I don’t know. Just go home and try another day, darling.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I agree on trashy comment. I saw on Fashion Police Selena Gomez is wearing this in a new music video. If I was on that panel, I would have been the only one to say it was too much- they all loved it. It’s not even a question of “Is Selena too young for this?”, it just seems way to trashy for anyone to wear in public.

      • demidaemon

        For a music video where half of it was underwater, I don’t see a problem. When it’s in broad daylight on a red carpet, she looks like a high class escort who wandered out on accident.

  • Mismarker

    Desperate. Cottage cheese bottom. Old hands.

    • This’ll get you banned. No body-snarking here. Please don’t do it again.

      • Mismarker

        It was a bridge too far. Sorry. Woke up on wrong side of bed and made the mistake of checking TLo. Won’t happen again.

  • Pennymac


  • Ahem,…(tapping foot) Young LADY. March yourself right back home, NOW.

  • It would look hot in a magazine shoot with perfect lighting, but outside, in reality, it just looks weird (and like she’s trying too hard.)

  • Waspy Eva Longoria.

    You know, I can’t even be mad at her. Apparently all of Celebritydom is under some sort of contract to wear black, sheer, clothing and to show the world their underwear. And/of some side boob. They are fashion sheeple.

    • shirab

      They all need to go back to HC Andersen to read “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”

      • H2olovngrl

        Not the first time I have thought the exact same thing.

  • Lesley

    major butt cheek cleavage anywhere besides the beach or the bedroom? not ok, ever.

  • madge

    would have looked a helluva lot better with that awesome leather jacket over top, like on the runway. otherwise it’s just too boudoir.

    • RebeccaKW

      I agree. You have to choose one. Lingerie top or lingerie bottom. Both together makes it look like you wandered outside in your slip.

  • Are we going to look back at the 20-teens and wonder why everyone was so anxious to show off their underwear or lack there of?

    • AnaRoW

      No more than we currently look back at the 80’s and wonder the same thing.

      I don’t hate the “dress” but it’s completely wrong for her. Selena Gomez could probably pull it off.

      • Selena Gomez wore it in a music video (I searched for Jennifer Morrison to see, believe it or not, if she was married and found a site asking who wore it better). The site in question thinks this looks just fine.

        • Kristi Mitchell

          I was just going to say – Selena wore it in a recent music video and it looked gorgeous on her. This? Not so much.

  • Karen Tully

    Why is she wearing a negligee?

    • Sara__B

      It’s a FORMAL negligee?

  • What the ever loving fuck?

  • Trash.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Her face looks gorgeous, wich isn’t hard because she’s gorgeous to star with.
    I can’t talk about the rest of the outfit, yikes!

  • This woman continues to display awful, awful taste.

  • Jessi03

    Girl. It looks incredibly similar to the lingerie that Nicole Kidman wears in the elephant in Moulin Rouge (“Oh I love a little poetry after dinner!”)

  • Diego!

    OMG, this is a disaster… but I like her makeup and hair 😛

  • MilaXX

    Yeah, this is not her um, dress? I mean look at her face, all pretty and normal. She needs to send this to Rhi Rhi cause Jen is entirely too wholesome looking for this outfit.

    • Which is why this look screams “Hey, I’m trying way too hard!” It’s just not in her wheelhouse. At all.

      • MilaXX


  • l_c_ann

    An ill fitting bra is never good, and this one doesn’t match her cup size and she’s wearing it scootched to her right.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the leather back stuff is because it didn’t fit her? And the leather stuff are extenders?

    • susan6

      Exactly….my first impression was “unflattering titscrepency”. Not a good look.

  • mjude


  • You cannot put a sheer piece of fabric over your lingerie and call it a dress. Even her little butt doesn’t fit her undies. So bad.

    • MilaXX

      Sadly in an outfit like this, a little ass cheek is intentional.

  • nannypoo

    This trashy dress has sort of a wonder woman’s lingerie vibe. I don’t know who this woman is, I’m guessing maybe a country singer, but she definitely does not look like a person who would wear this dress. The fit of the underpants section looks so uncomfortable. If there were no cameras I’m sure she would reach back there and pull it out of her butt crack.

    • RebeccaKW

      She’s an actress that I have seen in 2 things. One of the Urban Legends sequels and the current t.v. show “Once Upon a Time.”

  • tereliz

    Can’t this woman find a middle ground between frumpy and too darn hot? I think Selena Gomez wore this same outfit in a music video.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Not the way I wanted to start my week. . .

  • GorgeousThings

    Girl was smoking a doober while dressing and went out in her corset and petticoat.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Just missing the marabou mules

  • I saw a product advertised this weekend that creates “soft curls” by spinning hair in a plastic cup attached to a blow dryer. Maybe that’s what she uses…

  • Vanja

    Tom and Lorenzo (in unison):
    What the hell is that?!

    A dress.

    Tom and Lorenzo (in unison):
    Says who?

  • frannyprof

    I will never sign off on bare buttcheeks on the RC. Never.

  • lehen

    the differences between this and the granny-panty dresses you werq’d last week are 2 fold. 1) the granny panties underneath must cover, and 2) the sheer overlay must be (at the least) interesting. Even if this one fit properly, it would still be tragic. And the front has a hole.

    • RebeccaKW

      It’s almost a granny thong.

      • Adriana_Paula

        THANK you! As someone who enjoys wearing a nice granny panty from time to time (under real clothes, I hasten to point out), the joy of them is that they cover your butt and don’t ride halfway up the cheek! And doesn’t it look like they actually hiked it up so it would reveal even more butt? Otherwise why is the waist of the panty up above the dress’ leather waistband? That’s not how the model is wearing it. Tack-ay.

        • RebeccaKW

          I’m sure part of it is her height vs. the model’s. But something is definitely off in the tush. I just don’t get why so much cheek is exposed in a pair of granny panties. I thought that was the point (at least part of it) in wearing granny panties. Wearing something that is seemingly skimpy, yet offers coverage.

  • FrigidDiva

    IF this would have been styled like the runway look with the leather biker jacket, the booties, and the ponytail I could give it an almost pass because it would have had more of rocker vibe and less bordello feel. However, the excessive butt cheek in the back? I just can’t.

  • RedRaven617

    OK, I’m going to go out on a limb and say I think she looks good. Yes, the black sheer and leather looks a little trashy, but I think that has a lot to do with her blond, puppy-dog hair. The shape is one of the best she has worn all year, so let’s give her a hand for trying to mix it up.

    • Kenisha Hill Phillips

      You know what? I was actually prepared to like it, had she just gone for it. As it is, however, my comment of pageant from the neck up still applies.

  • Kate4queen

    so done with the sheer black lace and lingerie as outside wear.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    Pageant from the neck up. Bordello from the neck down.

    • ceceliadid

      Nailed it.

  • jetpackdino

    Does anyone else have that recurring nightmare? The one where you’re in high school, and you look down and realize you’re in your underwear?

    This dress is bringing bad dreams to life for me.

  • I have to back the Fuggirls – EVERYONE at this event was naked and/or dumb. This outfit is both naked and dumb.

    • MilaXX

      OMG did you see Miguel kick that lady in the head? It was the last bit I saw before turning to Mad Men.

      • Didn’t see any of it – just read the girls’ post today.

  • Insidiously

    This is horrible

  • H2olovngrl

    I probably would’ve been OK with this if the skirt hadn’t been sheer. I think she can work a littly edgy, but this is pushing the envelope way too far. Everything else looks hot to trot. In her defense, she does have a killer set of gams, but there had to be a better way to show them off.

  • TheAmericaness

    She looked like she got dressed up to surprise her husband in bed, walked out of the bathroom and… YOU’VE BEEN PUNK’D!!! Ashton! You little sneak!

  • Psssst! You forgot your dress!

  • Come on peeps… she was in a rush! She forgot the dress at home!

  • Bordello-tastic!

  • In an ethics class I took, one of the questions the professor asked us to ponder before making a decision was, would you want your mother to read about your doing this in the paper tomorrow? Jennifer, would you want your parents to see you wearing this? (I understand that many “celebrity” looks don’t pass this test.)

  • Jesus.

  • sededed

    You say conventional, I say generic. Her beauty is very blah. She is simply not edgy enough to pull off ANY of these looks.

  • Music biz edgy does NOT equal cheap, which is how this looks.

  • unbornfawn

    Definitely lingerie. Get dressed next time dear.

  • ringthing

    Am I having a bad dream or do I recall that sheer over everything was still at the fall fashion shows? I wish this horrid trend would die. I don’t think I have the strength to deal.

  • No.

  • poggi

    Lord, when Nicki Minaj shows up with classier clothes that fit better, it’s time to take a good, long look at (and maybe a flamethrower to) your style.

    Also is that back some weird McGyver’d fix to make this fit or are those three little leather strips intentional? They don’t look intentional.

  • sekushinonyanko

    She looks like she just wandered out of one of either Don or Pete’s dream sequences.

  • golden_valley

    Why would anyone go out in public in that getup?

  • crash1212

    The butt cheeks is what makes it art.

  • jjfg

    Looks like lounge wear form the Xena, Warrior Princess line.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Why are JMo and JLo filling my Monday full of crazy? Why?

  • Donna Tabor

    I have nightmares about being suddenly in public in my underwear, and here she is doing the same thing voluntarily.

    Yep. I’d say that’s cray.

  • Mary Saucier

    And yet I STILL find her hair the most objectionable thing about this.

  • random_poster

    This may have been passable if she gone full-on diva with her hair and make-up. As is, it looks like one of the teen starlets went shopping in the naughty side of Mom’s closet.

  • DeGuz

    Is this seriously supposed to be a dress??

  • thecitysleeps

    Someone inform designers/stylists/celebs everywhere that that shit is not a dress. I can’t.

  • SewingSiren

    One of the worst granny panty looks yet. And that is saying quite a bit.

  • E. D.

    I wasn’t down on it until I saw how much there was hanging out in back. Madonna indeed.

  • I actually LOVE the runway stylin with the leather jacket. If a mere mortal were attempting this, that would be the way to go with modifications made to the skirt to remove “ass cleavage” from the discussion. I love her from her “House” days and it saddens me to see Dr Cameron dressing this way. Liked her as a brunette more, too.

  • CommenterFormerlyKnownAsR

    Ugh. What? God, no. (This has me reduced to monosyllables.)

  • Jacob


    No, really.

  • conniemd

    Jennifer, remember your brand! It is wholesome good girl next door.

  • kalisa

    I’m a little disappointed you didn’t title this entry, “Girl, That’s Not A Dress.”

  • Crystal

    I hate this with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. Which is even MORE tragic when it is compared with her hair and makeup which ACTUALLY LOOK NICE. THIS NEVER HAPPENS.

  • Luna

    The ornate, romantic look really doesn’t suit her. I wish she’d gone for something with simpler, more relaxed lines with some funky artistic touches. She has too much of a charming, tomboy-ish girl-next-door kinda look for this.

  • julnyes

    There seems to be a disconnect between who she sees herself as (perhaps her real personality) and what she looks like to the public. She may be an edgy rocker daredevil chick on the inside, but on the outside she is very standard Hollywood pretty and her RC choices are jarring.

  • Dear J.M. stylist,

    I just…..why? Why when a person pays you to help them look good, how couls you allow ANYONE to leave the house looking like this? Let alone a star? Even if you doing it for free? Even if she threw things at you? Have you no pride in your work? This is a Kardashian/Hilton desperate famewhore look, and you should be fired. And maybe tortured. At the very least slapped.

  • AngelaGreen

    Didn’t Daniel Franco design that in Season 2 for the lingerie challenge? Not feeling it.

  • Didn’t Emma Roberts wear the same thing? Still NAGL.

  • pop_top

    LMAO, no.

  • PrunellaV

    Is she trolling for a billionaire?

  • kimiakay

    Oh Jennifer. You looked amazing in that blue jumpsuit, but then you wear this? Maybe if you wore the black jacket like the model, but this dress? nightgown? is tacky. You’ve got the body for it, but I, for one, do not want to see your butt-cheeks on the RC. Go home and change, please.

  • RL McGruder

    Here’s my nice thing to say: I really want that ring. Loves!!!

  • NoGovernmentName

    This thing makes an otherwise exception ass look terrible. What a nightmare.

  • CommentsByKatie

    I thought this dress was really cool and sexy, and though I rolled my eyes at the granny panty vibe, I thought it was working.

    Until I saw the pictures from the back. Oh my god. I feel so bad for her….maybe she didn’t see it from the back? This takes it beyond tacky into embarrassing, you know? I think if these were more of a booty-short look, she could pull it off, but the ass hanging out is just an awful look.


  • Ummy

    I’ll give her credit for looking incredibly happy. As someone who has, at times, questionable or artistic or even tacky tastes in style, I can’t completely just trash her for the look. A part of me admires the guts to go totally unconventional.

    That said, it’s lingerie. Lingerie that looks like it’s pulling the girls down instead of giving them some support.

  • quiltrx

    This is REALLY not flattering! I *thought* the whole idea of “granny panties” was that they COVER your special parts. Girl, 2/3 of your ass is hanging out. This is too sheer, too small, too tacky.

  • demidaemon


  • myristica_fragrans

    she always tries so hard and never seems to get it. we should take up a collection and hire her a new stylist.

  • elemspbee

    omg, this is atrocious. and really her ass shot? would have preferred I got spared that view.

  • I actually like the look in terms of her hair, makeup and the dress itself. What gets me to think it’s a bad look for her is the flappy and sagging behind that leaves my jaw dropping to the floor. If a body is not toned then don’t wear stuff like that on the red carpet!

  • Aurumgirl

    It really just looks like she forgot to pull the gown on over this.

  • Not to say I have a booty to die for…but come on. Really bad booty shot. Also it looks like there are actual (non intentional) holes in the bodice. Yuck.

  • That’s what i call, a nice rear view.

  • PeaceBang

    Well, now I know what Wonder Woman’s lingerie looks like.

  • librarygrrl64

    Die, see-through trend, DIIIIEEEEEEEE!!! Do I need a wooden stake or a silver bullet or something to kill this evil thing???
