      Why have all the dresses suddenly become so short? It makes me uncomfortable to look at the women wearing them, as if at any moment there will be some accidental reveal. They could all do with at least three more inches on them.

      • MoHub

        I had a couple that short back in the late ’60s, but they came with matching hot pants.

      • Garcia Loca

        This particular one is not that short: it hits her at about mid-thigh.

      • marshmallowjane

        I wore most of my dresses that short way back then. It’s a nice look for a girl with a more boyish figure and nice legs. The big problem is that the butt in the dress gets stretched from sitting down and covering everything up. I had some beautiful clothes that I made myself that I eventually had to toss because they were all stretched. For a red-carpet event, the stretching isn’t such an issue, but I can already see–from her side view–that the hem is slightly longer in the back, and this is probably from her pulling the dress to cover her undies when she sits.

    • MoHub

      Love that you boys used the correct article with Haute. However, I’m willing to bet that the company pronounces that H to make it alliterate with Hippie.

      • alyce1213

        I want to scream whenever I hear haute couture mispronounced, especially by people in the industry.

        • MoHub

          My husband screams at the teevee every time a commercial comes on. And I had to use the wrong article because that’s how “they” pronounce it.

        • MoHub

          For me, it’s chefs who can’t pronounce mascarpone, gratin, and chipotle and use au jus as a noun. It’s tools of the trade.

          Would you trust a carpenter who couldn’t pronounce screwdriver correctly?

          • barbarienne

            OMG, whenever I see a menu advertising “Roast beef with au jus” I want to find the owner and beat him with a soup ladle.

          • alyce1213

            Now you really got me started. I once wrote a snarky e-mail to a TV chef who kept pronouncing caramel as carmel.
            And have you noticed how many people say “Wa-la” instead of “Voila!”

            This is so off-topic, but it’s a nice opportunity to kvetch.

            • MoHub

              Kvetch away, my dear. Just don’t try to put a vowel between the k and the v!

              And some of these folks actually studied in France.

            • marlie

              “Walla” instead of the correct pronunciation makes me want to punch someone.

            • 3boysful

              I always assume the Wa-La! people took Latin.

            • Gaby

              How about when people spell it “viola”? I’ve seen that and it always irritates me like nails on a chalkboard.

          • MsMajestyk

            Add meritage to that list and my pronunciation peeves list is complete. For food and wine anyway.

        • Sara L.

          You should never live in Versailles, Ohio*.


          • 3boysful

            I am laughing aloud.

          • C. C. Winslow

            Buena Vista Road here in (smallish town) NC is pronounced Byoona Vista.

            • 3boysful


            • C. C. Winslow

              Yes, are you in the vicinity?

            • 3boysful

              Yup – Clt

          • Wendi126

            Near Philly is Bala Cynwyd. Pronounced Kinwood

            • marlie

              Don’t forget Bryn Mawr. Not to mention all of the Native American town and landmark names in the area.

          • Aurumgirl

            Or Calais*, Maine.

            *Callous (like the kind you get on your feet).

          • MemHey

            Santa Fe (“Fee”), Tennessee. Also Quebec = “KAY-beck”.

          • Gaby

            Bogota, New Jersey.
            Rhymes with pagoda.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Am I the only one who hates foot tattoos???

      • DinaSews

        Foot tattoos and the random symbol tattoos that stars seem to be getting lately scattered over their bodies.

        • barbarienne

          What is that about? She’s got a little arrow on her shoulder, a couple of little things on her elbows, the bits on her feet; and she’s far from the only person these days. Somewhere there are prison tattooers giving up their guitar-string machines in despair now that their fashion has gone mainstream.

          • marlie

            She looks like she was bored in class and doodled on herself.

      • alyce1213

        You’re not alone. Looks like dirty feet, or crawly bugs, whatever.

        • rajf

          Beyond making me flinch thinking about the painful process a foot tattoo must entail, all I can think of is what it will look like when the foot surgery required because of their footwear choices creates scars in addition to the art.

      • RedRaven617

        I feel exactly the same. It always looks like schmutz on the feet. I’m not a fan of these random tattoos.

      • PinkLemon

        It’s the teensy tiny ones I can’t stand. They just look like random pen marks or smudges.

        • marlie


      • Aurumgirl


    • MilaXX

      I don’t like the shoe with this dress.

    • Garcia Loca

      I think she confused this with a Great Gatsby premiere.

      • Rhonda Shore

        i was thinking how it’s of that style but that it looks good on her. It’s a cute dress.

      • MoHub

        Gatsby meets Spider-Man.

    • omg_dora

      I love the 1920s vibe of the dress with the embellishment and the flowiness. It must be a lot of fun to wear — the kind of dress that makes you feel both comfortable (panty-revealing issues aside) and like a sex goddess. The shoes are too clever for my tastes — the heels just look broken.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I know, those extremely expensive shoes look broken and because of that structure WILL be broken soon.

    • DinaSews

      What’s with the suede shoes lately? Hardly the season.

      • demidaemon

        Like that’s stopped starlets before. I expect we’ll see them in velvet dresses before August and then the minis will be back in season around Thanksgiving.

    • barbarienne

      A good take on the modern flapper trend, but seems a bit overdressed for this movie premiere, imo.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Oh, we ARE going to be deluged with faux Jazz Age clothes for a while, aren’t we?
      Also, Haute Hippie? The terms are pretty much mutually exclusive.

      • zenobar

        Yep, I already saw no less than three drop-waist frocks on the racks at Target. In the women’s section, not the juniors’. This concerns me, as virtually no grown woman with any type of post-childbearing hip structure can pull off the dreaded drop-waist.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          This does have some ominous undertones. Be wary, lady kittens!

        • omg_dora

          I think Octavia Spencer recently proved you wrong :)

    • Gaby

      I feel like I’d like this more without the chain batwing sleeves, but I suppose it might just be a boring deco-style dress without them. The shoes are disappointingly boring. I’d have gone with peacock blue accessories. Also, that nail color does not work for me.
      ETA: I’d also like to register my disgust with the concept of this movie, which just irritates me.

      • marlie

        Why is the movie premise any worse than any other Vince Vaughan comedy?

        • Gaby

          “The Internship” with a pair of exorbitantly rich white X-Gen actors making fun of the current pathetic and exploitative/free-labor-based job-market for 20-somethings? Maybe I’m just not the target audience but that doesn’t sound that amusing to me (never had any desire to see Wedding Crashers either, but at least the premise didn’t immediately annoy me). I suspect many people around my age won’t appreciate it either, given that what economic recovery there has been has not reached youth in the US (indeed, youth unemployment is worse in the US than it is in Europe). Maybe it’ll be a biting satire about exploitation and useless work akin to Office Space’s cubicle jabs, or Buster Bluth trying to become a Mexican laborer, or Jake Morgendorffer trying to ride the dotcom wave, but c’mon, we know that’s not it – it’ll probably be about Vince and Owen “lovably” bumbling their way to the top because the 20-somethings are too naive, stressed, and uptight to actually succeed or something (hahaha young people think they have it hard with their debt and their unpaying jobs hahaha).

          I suppose this is a roundabout and overly serious/sensitive way of saying: “Too soon.” The recession isn’t over for youth yet, not by a longshot.

          ETA: I admit that I am overly sensitive to this as a young person with excessive amounts of debt because of the scam that is law school.

          • marlie

            That’s a fair assessment. I can totally understand your frustration.

            • Gaby

              Yeah. If it were going to be something beautiful and sensitive like Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp character (the Gold Rush comes to mind, though it predates the great Depression), I’d be more ok with it, but… Vince Vaughan/Owen Wilson film.

    • EdithP

      I feel sorry for these people, having to pose against that backdrop.

    • almostcrime

      that’s a loooooooooooootta bronzer.

      • random_poster

        And it’s only on the front of her legs (see 2nd to last picture). They must have run out during the application.

    • sekushinonyanko

      She looks really cute!

    • Emily Giovanni

      According to The Laws of What Emmy Likes, I should not like this. But I do.

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      The makeup is really terrible, but aside from that, I’ll take it. I’m grading this girl on a curve, as she usually looks a hot mess.

    • jmorino08

      I kinda love this dress, but those shoes are tragic. They make me sad for her feet.

    • NOLA_gal

      What’s with the weird structurally unsound footwear? It’s like all footwear designers have become Mannerist revivalists…

    • fursa_saida

      I like the dress, but the Carmen Electra hair and makeup are ruining it.

    • crash1212

      I think this is a fun little dress and it looks great on her. Love the styling. Not crazy about the shoe.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Well it looks like someone is getting serious about her career. This is the best I’ve seen her look, probably ever.

    • Nancer

      Really cute!

    • decormaven

      Bit too heavy on the Mystic Tan. Too bad it doesn’t cover the random unattractive ink, especially on the feet. Dress is OK, but heading toward the too-short end of the spectrum.

    • MoHub

      Those shoes are a crime against humanity. I’m more convinced than ever that shoe designers are getting kickbacks from podiatrists.

    • VioletFem

      The term “Haute Hippie” sounds like an oxymoron.

    • annabelle archer

      Aaaaaand here we have more 20s era inspired fashion. The dress is pretty enough but the shoes don’t go and frankly, she looks like she smells like cigarettes and self tanner.

    • Anniebet

      Take the dress off her, put it on a mannequin in front of the backdrop. We all go “Hey great dress!” or “Ugh, that’s cheap looking 20s Gatsby fad stuff”. Then we don’t have to deal with orange tan, harsh as hell eye makeup, weird shoes, WTF foot tattoos, and fried hair.


    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      I like the dress. A lot. The eyes are overdone.

    • 3boysful

      I love this dress. I have always loved dropped-waist dresses. The hair and makeup are fine. Shoe– suede in nearly June? And as someone already said, the heels are too-too clever.

    • marlie

      Cute enough little dress, but I don’t know who the heck this chick is. I don’t like the shoes, though, and I can’t tell if it’s the makeup, or her expression that’s making her eyes look so squinty. Also, I really don’t like the random tattoos that just look like she doodled all over herself.

    • frannyprof

      She look dirty, and not in a good way. Isn’t this an awfully dark/serious look to be wearing to the premiere of a comedy?

    • AndreaSkates

      Except in the headshots, the eye makeup somehow makes her eyes themselves disappear. I never knew that was possible.

      • nannypoo

        I think it’s the color of her eyes. They’re so light compared to the rest of her. I always think she’s interesting and pretty.

    • nannypoo

      I love everything here except the little tattoos. If you have to have a damn tattoo, then commit. Otherwise it just looks like you applied those little lick-and-stick things on whatever random places you could reach.

      • l_c_ann

        Looks more like someone took an ink pen to her while she was pass…..asleep.

    • Airkisses

      It’s the Goldengate Dress

    • PastryGoddess

      did Haute Hippie miss a few decades?

    • Jai Piper

      What is with the knock-kneed pose? She looks like she has to pee.

    • bellafigura1

      I’m ok with the dress, fine, but the shoes, eek, too heavy. No.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Cute dress! Love it.

    • kimiakay

      I love this dress. It’s good it’s black so it doesn’t clash with the orange all over her body. Why she didn’t wear a summer-type sandal with the dress I don’t know, but the heels on those shoes are just wrong.

    • pookiesmom

      Haute Hippie is, like, a real brand name? Oh, dear.

    • Sweetvegan

      She looks fantastic! That is a gorgeous dress!

    • Contralto

      What a great dress! She’s wearing it well.

    • Crystal

      Is the line really called “haute hippie?”

      I’m irritated.
