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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • “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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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