      I said it before and I’ll repeat it. I don’t get it. Julianne is a fantastic actress, very beautiful with a lovely face and body… yet this?
      My feet are hurting for that poor pinky toe.

      • charlotte

        A-toe-calypse!

      • Mary229

        She is a brilliant actress and a gorgeous woman. Her dress makes me sad.

        • drdarke

          Hey, Moe! She’s wearin’ a bedsheet, too!

          Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!

          Wow, that dress is – unfortunate, and the shoes (as commented on elsewhere) are no prize either….

      • Dam_Angel

        this little piggy went Wee Wee Wee all the way home!

    • misstressofsylar

      her poor poor toes. can’t unsee!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cortney-Dean/100002491593625 Cortney Dean

      Are any of you seeing her toes in those shoes? Honey, you are an A List actress, I think you can insist on shoes that don’t dislocate you pinky toes.

    • carpediva

      Um, how is it possible to leave the house for an event and not know that the sandals you’re wearing don’t actually accommodate your pinky toes?

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Why oh why couldn’t she have worn one of the fab things she was in in that recent magazine shoot. The bodice is boxy looking on her, and the ballet length skirt is not working for her much.

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

        She’s wearing a dress?

    • OrigamiRose

      Ugh. Those toes.

    • http://twitter.com/subbasegirl Jessie Slater

      Sorry, but the pain I’m feeling for her feet ruins the whole look. Even in this size obsessed world, nobody cares what size shoe you wear. Wear a pair that fits!

    • http://www.facebook.com/CameronETurner Cameron Turner

      Not a favorite look of mine and that hanging pinky toe is KILLING me!

    • Tamara Hogan

      SAVE THE PINKY TOES!

    • Coolekat

      Please someone help her.

    • lbl

      Noooooooooo

    • Candice Richardson

      That toe situation is unacceptable and her dress is even worse. Do her stylists hate her?

    • hughman

      Oh Satin, how you tempt us on the runway. But once we’re in your cold embrace, you taunt and embarrass us with ass wrinkles and bitter puckers. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

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

        I read that as Oh Satan….
        It still worked.

        • hughman

          LOL. You filthy heathen. ;)

      • NOLA_gal

        See what you did there? I read this first time through as “Oh satan..” True in both iterations.

    • lrober03

      It would be so much better with an even length at the bottom

      • Carla_Charlton

        And with the stripes in the skirt as shown on the model.

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      I’m pretty sure my aunt made this exact dress for my cousin’s 10th grade homecoming dance.

    • Crystal

      Waist up- yes. Hair is pretty, bodice is simple and fits well, jewelry is fine.
      Waist down- HOLY MOTHER OF GOD WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT.

      • Tatiana Luján

        I agree 100% on that.

        • Crystal

          I keep scrolling up to the closeup of her smiling and scrolling my screen down until I can only see her top half. I want to weep.

    • Pennymac

      “Wee Wee Wee, all the way home……” Poor little piggies!

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

      OHGAWDTHATPINKYTOE! It’s ALL I can see.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Hey wait a minute… that skirt was the one on the Miss Piggy puppet I got for Christmas 1977!!

    • Onika K Morris-Alleyne

      She needs to understand and accept that an ankle strap is not her friend, and neither is complicated couture. Keep it simple and sleek sis

    • appliquer

      No. I don’t understand why she wears so much black – it is so harsh on her coloring. From the neck up, she’s beautiful. And the shoes – ouch!

    • susan6

      Wow, almost everything about this is wrong. The bodice doesn’t fit right and it’s squeezing her in all the wrong ways (didn’t know you could have muffin top above your chest), the skirt is poofy and unflattering, the shoes don’t fit right. From the necklace up she looks fine, but everything below is just mis-sized and misshapen. Are there no stylists or tailors in France?

    • Mary229

      Beautiful woman. Amazing actress. I hate this dress.

    • MilaXX

      I love her, but I can’t with the struggle shoes. Lady stars, if your pinky toes are trying to run away tell your assistants or stylist to go buy you another pair. To be honest these look like her feet are slipping down because of the height and probably could use some no slip inserts.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      That’s a nice shade of lipstick on her. Let’s not speak of that half-assed bolt of fabric pinned around her. (Though this dress may have benefited from TLo’s Standing Carriage – it’s so wrinkled that the fabric looks super cheap – and I’ve touched this type of fabric in person, it has the most amazing hand.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=645442822 Sophia Vaccaro

      Looks like they changed the fabric to something that wrinkles really easily…how odd. But I can’t not like this cause I think she is the most beautiful woman ever basically.

    • Jennelle

      This dress looks like a high school craft project.. Dior couture…for shame!

      • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

        Blame Raf Simons.

    • E. D.

      The top of the dress is interesting. That skirt needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up.

    • IAmJ

      This is atrocious. The dress is sad and crafty (House of Dior, please explain yourself), the shoes are wrong for the dress and a torture device for her feet, the jewelry is an afterthought, the makeup is too brown and cakey. All of it. No, wait, the hair looks nice.

    • http://twitter.com/tishinottawa Tish

      I picture her in something filmy and floaty and Mediterranean bluegreen for the setting – would be lovely on her colouring.

    • VioletFem

      Pretty color, terrible fabric.

    • crash1212

      She sure has shiny hair. That’s all I got.

    • filmcricket

      I don’t hate it? I acknowledge all the problems everybody else is pointing out, and her poor feet! BUT. I feel like this succeeds because of what it isn’t. It’s not overly complicated, it doesn’t stumpify her, her chest is supported, she’s not wearing bear-trap shoes… If it didn’t have a mullet skirt, and she switched out the shoes (preferably to some that fit) I’d be fine with it.

    • Anniebet

      The foot fairy totally cursed her, huh? Those pinky toes are trying to escape those hiddy shoes, and who can blame them?

      Uh, I like the color of the skirt. Can’t think of one other thing that works here. The top makes her look like she has no waist and no breasts. The hair and makeup are sloppy. Too bad, ’cause I do like her. New stylist time?

    • TheAmericaness

      What IZZ she wearing? Plus her pinky toe literally looks like it is trying to commit suicide in that last photograph and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that that’s exactly what it’s doing.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Well, she seems unusually happy for a woman whose feet are being tortured.

      The pleating on the runway version is much more interesting. Julianne’s looks like Barbie clothes.

    • Qitkat

      1. Well, drinking that Flaming Lemon Drop was a mistake.
      2. Who the hell is chopping onions?
      3. I WILL smile through my tears.
      4. Ahh, there’s that damn stylist. You just wait.
      5. If I have to smile for one more minute, I’m going to rip off this dress. I’m keeping the diamonds though.
      6. And throw my shoes at somebody. The Bitter Kittens are going to roast me for these. I may need surgery.
      Luv ya, bye-y.

    • BrooklynBomber

      I don’t like it, but considering some of the get ups she’s been known to show up in, I’d say it’s a big improvement.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bert.keeter Bert Keeter

      You can call it what you want but THIS IS NOT COUTURE! End of story!

    • jmorino08

      Don’t look so pleased with yourself, Julianne.

    • jw_ny

      I wish there was more volume/life on the back of dress and train…this is just kind of hanging dead back there. The folds on the front of the dress on the model gives more life and interest to the skirt too. Otherwise, I think she looks pretty good.

    • SewingSiren

      she got punk’d

    • NoveltyRocker

      Shoes. Likey.

    • Louise Bryan

      Je deteste those shoes. And the dress needs a belt.

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t see how anyone could focus on her shoes when the dress is so awful. Beautiful woman… eternally fashionless

    • quiltrx

      I’m just going to focus from the chest up, where she looks beautiful (and I love that necklace).
      I wanted to love the skirt portion, I really did…I love the color and the iridescence. BUT it’s just a shapeless bedsheet. If ever there was a skirt in need of some “torturing”, this is it. Just an expanse of disappointment as it is.

    • frannyprof

      The toes! And I wish she had stuck with the original skirt on the runway look.

    • pepper76

      It’s not perfect, but I just realized that she is 52! I’m reserving all of my comments and bowing down.

    • Jessi03

      Miss Lady, WHY are you wearing a dress inspired by my favorite scrunchie from 1993? Put it away and go to your room.

    • PeaceBang

      In that last waving photo she looks like a cute red-headed doll someone packed in an ugly mauve gossamer gift bag because they didn’t have time to wrap the thing properly in a box with paper and a bow.

    • demidaemon

      Well, it was a short run of simple fabulousness, Julianne. Back to your normal hideousity, I see. *cries in the corner*

    • elemspbee

      Awful dress and awful on her. Black tube top with a light lavander, long, baloon skirt with a mermaid tail?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1241487378 Lauren Lynch Fox

      Prom dress.

    • http://twitter.com/iraki86 IraKi

      I hate the back! I feel like the dress is falling apart. I hate the colour combo. It makes her look like a cheap Christmas ornament. I hate the bust, it does nothing for her…. All in all, I hate this. It feels like an anti-werq.

    • Diego!

      Oh no… no! Honey, no. Send it back ASAP!

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      I don’t think she cares about fashion. That skirt is UGLY; it looks cheap. Maybe she is too busy to try on several dresses–or she needs a better stylist. Something is amiss.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I refuse to believe this mess of a dress is a Dior. She looks radiant and happy, so there’s that. But the rest should go in a wood chipper.

    • In_Stitches

      This looks like a knock off that was made in hours, not a fabulous Dior dress. Why isn’t the bodice ruched, why did they change the fabric and add a mullet? I think the original design might have actually worked on her.

    • carnush

      I like the dress. Too bad about the shoes. Her poor toesies!

    • mmc2315

      Aw! So close! The mullet kills it for me.

    • MB

      AND WE’RE BAAACK!

    • http://twitter.com/phreddd F. Eloy Vaughn

      She loses a couple of inches in that dress easily.

    • Emily Rose

      It looks like someone wanted to prove that they could wear their awful bridesmaid’s dress again and so threw a black tube top over the original top in an attempt to make it cooler. Yikes.

    • PastryGoddess

      I was wondering when this picture was going to be featured. and thank you from the bottom of my cold bitter heart, for not showing up close shots of her feet in those shoes

      • Fordzo

        MTE! As I was scrolling down, part of me was in horror at the thought of seeing a closeup of that crazy toe stuff going on, and the other part was in full-on train wreck mode and I knew I wouldn’t be able to look away if there WAS a shot of the shoes.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      I like this look. It’s not perfect, and of course the toes are making me cry, but she’s so obviously happy and feeling very beautiful…..the attitude makes up for the faults of the dress. And I have a real personal weakness for iridescent fabrics, so extra props to her for that.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      It’s… interesting. I mostly like it, but with the dark background, there’s this illusion that she’s thick around the middle. Her hair and makeup look really beautiful.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Nope. She fucked it up again.

    • librarygrrl64

      Nope.

    • Marcella

      I’m not sure which is more disturbing – seeing her poor feet or hearing her say that she didn’t even feel that.

      Why can’t this poor woman find shoes that fit?????
