      This might be the best I’ve ever seen her look.

        I agree, also, bitch don’t age.

    • Jonquil

      Unflattering to the nth degree. The side view makes her look like a centaur!

      • AndresB

        Centaur nails it perfectly.
        Distorted body proportions here… created by a designer who didn’t realize that with this kind of skirt, the beading absolutely needs to be less dense around the hips and fuller towards the hemline. In this case, it’s almost the other way around.

      • CommentsByKatie

        I always look like this from the side (except bigger) because I’m a 4 on top a 10 on bottom…now I will think centaur whenever I look in the mirror! xF

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I feel like this might be a trick question…. But I really like this look. Soft, pretty. The bust is a bit low, but overall it’s flattering. (Now I’ll wince as my fellow BKs point out what I’m missing!)

      • MissAmynae

        not gonna argue. she’s lovely. The earrings are a nice touch.

    • alyce1213

      She looks pretty, confident and relaxed, but I can’t sign off on the hairy sequined dress, it’s like some toy you win at a carnival. Maybe it looks better in person. Then again, maybe not.

    • j_anson

      I like it, although for extra credit she should have saved it to wear to a benefit gala for an oil-spill clean-up charity. Save the birds!

    • Sobaika

      I’m not mad at this. But I think she needed better/different earrings.

    • Ashley Alvarez

      I don’t care if she looks like some sort of half-crow, half-woman, WERQ IT.

    • jmorino08

      From straight on it looks great, but from every other angle it’s a miss. Baby heads. Giant phantom bubble butt. Weird.

      All I can hear in my head is George Hamilton saying, “I’m not even a bat. I’m a black chicken.”*

      *Quote from “Love At First Bite”. Because I am old.

      • Annaline39

        Come back chicken! Leave us an egg or something! :)

    • MilaXX

      Gerry pretty dress, not sure I like the earrings with this. Does she act anymore?

    • AceOn6

      Can’t get over the sagging in the back. Get a dress that fits, girl.

    • Sara__B

      This is a classic scroll-down fug. Hair, makeup, and earrings are great. Bodice looks good, although it’s a bit low. But the skirt is awful.

    • guest2visits

      Mena looks pretty great in this. I can think of a lot of earrings that would work better though.
      A little bit of Michelle Pfeifer around the eyes?

    • MoHub


    • demidaemon

      I think I’m developing an irrational hatred of strapless gowns. She looks pretty here, but she could use a definite yoinking up.

    • nannypoo

      Ostrich, emu, I don’t know. I don’t like it.

    • Imasewsure

      Wow I don’t like the hair and makeup at all… these dresses always hang too low for me (and on me, they would fall to the floor of course). It’s ok but no love

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      “Does this dress make my butt look big?” YES!

    • formerlyAnon

      Not bad. Though why one would want to make a skirt that looks like Snuffleupagus pelt, I am unsure.

    • PeaceBang

      The dress, I could do without but her hair and make-up look fantastic. Best I’ve ever seen her, actually.

    • AnniNoone

      She’s aging really nicely. I think she’s more attractive now than when she was in *American Beauty*.

      • BrooklynBomber

        She’s aging really nicely.
        That’s what I was thinking. She’s looking like a grown up, and it suits her.

    • Sarah Caponigro

      Dumb dress

    • quiltrx

      She herself looks very pretty…but I can’t unsee the dress as “PR unconventional materials from Party City challenge… plastic grass skirt spray-painted black.”

    • Call me Bee

      I love her, so she looks fabulous. And always will.

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      I can see tan lines on her chest. Not good at all.

    • Raanky

      It’s the Project Runway Unconventional Materials challenge!

    • ankali

      She looks really pretty. I would not have expected to like a hairy-looking gown, but here we are.

    • gillian holroyd

      Yes, there’s something wrong with the fit on her lower back, beneath the waist, although it looks alright in the front. I still think it’s a striking look, despite the centaur-effect. She looks good in black. Earring are too heavy though.

    • TheAmericaness

      I realize it has a weird look to it, but I think it’s couture-y and it meant to have some odd features, yes?

    • Pudgy Possum

      This is an amazing look. Love the unexpected earrings!

    • DiverK

      Please stylist, find me a dress that make my booty look bigger!

    • Elleachaudaucul

      She looks great! WERQ.

    • marlie

      I sort of love this. My only quibble is the hair. It’s a little too 80s for me. Otherwise, I think she looks fabulous.

    • Christine

      If Chris March, made it, I love it. But she doesn’t have the “look” or personality to carry it off. If it was yellow, she’d look like Tweety Bird.

    • Garcia Loca

      How many porcupines had to die for Mena to wear this dress?

    • Rhonda Shore

      Oh dear.

    • MarissaLG

      Very, very pretty. Reminds me of that one time that Angelina Jolie wore big green earrings with a long black dress. (Definitely different enough, though).

    • librarygrrl64

      Uh, no. And I don’t think this silhouette is her best, especially from the side.

    • crash1212

      Best fitted bodice I’ve seen in awhile, too bad it’s connected to a modified Big-Bird skirt. Love the earrings and think her make-up and hair are pretty.

    • Danielle Lisle

      AMEN Couture sounds like a line of bedazzled shirts with large angel wings on the back.
