  • Oh. No.


  • She’s just too wee for that dress. She’s drowning in red bias cut satin.

    • jenno1013

      PUCKERED bias cut satin. Those seams! My eyes!

    • drdarke

      Quick, somebody save Amanda Seyfried! She’s drowning in a sea of red fabric!

      What in the Hell possessed her to wear that outfit, anyway? That looks like something a “Fallen Woman” in THE HANDMAID’S TALE might wear….

      • ankali

        Points for the Atwood reference!

        • drdarke

          I was floundering for what it reminded me of until I remembered THE HANDMAID’S TALE, @ankali:disqus ….

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    She looks like someone’s Christmas gift. Six months early.

  • Emily Dagger

    Cut it off at the knees and I could very much get behind this.

  • That dress is eating her.

    • Sobaika


  • jmorino08

    That is a lovely nightgown Miss Seyfried. But isn’t it uncomfortable sleeping with a giant bow on your chest?

    • aeb1986

      This would probably illicit some serious flashbacks for Don Draper.

      • jmorino08

        Brilliant! And now that you mention it, I could easily see this on Megan. Followed closely by Don’s head exploding!

  • Is that Amanda Seyfried? Or Amanda Seyfried’s grandmother?

  • AlexisPayne

    She looks like she should be attending a party with a key bowl and a lot of coke

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    What’s happening with the scrawled writing next to her head in the first pic that’s absent in the other shots? Am I hallucinating?

    • What scrawled writing?

      (… Just kidding, I see it too.)

  • iheartbuffy

    I think my grandma has that nightgown. It probably cost less.

  • nannypoo

    This is a great color for her. There is nothing else good about it. And what is going on behind the model?

    • iheartbuffy

      It looks like they photoshopped the model into a pic of some rando dragging a granny-cart thru the hood

      • nannypoo

        It seems a mysterious golf portal has opened in the space-time continuum.

        • iheartbuffy

          one or the other. General TERRIBLE and moreover conspicuous photoshop job – look at the light reflecting off the model’s cheeks… CLEARLY the light is coming from the same late afternoon sun as the golf-portal/ghetto granny cart situ

    • Coolekat

      Very odd photoshop

    • Heather

      It’s the leg of her parasitic twin.

  • decormaven

    Very theatrical- I’m flashing on Dido and Aeneas for some reason. This is not her dress.

    • iheartbuffy

      I think it’s no one’s dress… it looks stupid on the model too

  • lehen

    nice nightgown, amanda.

  • FlyoverFi

    On the model with the giant gauntlets hiding the overly-long sleeves and photographed head-on, it looks okay. On Lily Kane (Veronica Mars Forever!), it looks like the result of a PR challenge that required the designer to use all of the purchased fabric.

    • janneyb

      “It looks like the result of a PR challenge that required the designer to use all of the purchased fabric” — in the most unflattering way possible.

  • nyazgirl

    Karen Carpenter chic

    • Macunaima

      Ouch! You’re not wrong, though.

  • jackiecoh

    My first thought was “Rachel Zoe”.

  • Logistical question. How do you wear a dress that drags on the floor without tripping over it? Especially with platform sandals? Do celebs get special lessons? I am perplexed.

    Also that model looks ten feet tall! Wow.

  • SewingSiren

    Fashion. With a capital F.

  • majorbedhead

    Wow, that’s awful.

    Is the model standing in front of a portal? Why is there just a leg and a wheely bag behind her? Where’s the rest of the guy?

  • Nancer

    Yet again, she is overwhelmed by the dress. Much too large on her. She is a tiny woman, and it would serve her better if they actually tailored these to fit her.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    This dress is hilariously ugly. New mini RC trend tit-sling dresses I’m callin it.

  • Sometimes my daughter likes to wear my things. She looks adorable, swimming in all that fabric. Then again, she’s five.

  • MilaXX

    Is she auditioning to become an Olsen?

    • iheartbuffy


  • bertkeeter

    That’s hilarious!

  • Glam Dixie

    It looks so much better on the model. She needs to give this to an Olsen and try again.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Looks odd and dated. Like a 70s ball gown mixed with a blouse.

  • snarkykitten

    She raided the Olsen twins’ closet

    Also, what’s up with that model shot? why is there a disembodied leg rolling a golf bag behind her?

    • iheartbuffy

      I’m telling you, very poor artistic choice and bad photoshop job

    • aeb1986

      haha good catch! thats so creepy!

    • j_anson

      Too much color for the Olsen twins. 🙂

    • Little_Olive

      What.The.Hell. is up with that shot.

      Where is the rest of the body? Why is he carrying what seems like a kid’s golf cart? How does that relate to the model and the dress? So many questions.

  • MoHub

    The upside is that when she ultimately trips on the overly long skirt and breaks her arm, she’s already got a built-in sling to keep it immobilized until the paramedics arrive.

  • Andrea Lentz

    although that looks super comfortable it’s so obvious when she isn’t trying

  • Patricia Gillett

    Oh Amanda honey, Bea Arthur would have rejected this based on the cheap-looking fabric. If you’re trying to pay tribute to that great lady, props to you for that, but pick a better-made dress and make sure it fits you!

  • If I were going to dinner in Hong Kong I would definitely wear a loose red dress. But without the big floppy tie which I would get food all over.

  • mjude

    i would be sweating so bad in that material.

  • elleg929

    She looks like an Olsen twin

  • barbarienne

    Girl, you are too young and cute to wear a badly fitted satin sack. This wouldn’t even work as a nightgown.

  • hmariec19

    Girl NO.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    I admit to a fondness for those totally unwearable in real life gloves…

  • MaryAlice Finley Davis

    That’s the most hideous dress I’ve seen in a long, LONG time.

  • Mismarker

    Holy Mother of No.

  • FeminineLipstique

    The shapelessness of the dress is not helped with her loooong locks adding visual clutter with that big, sad bow.

  • Coolekat

    Granny’s Christmas robe.

    • iheartbuffy


  • kipper

    Hmmmmm… totally works on paper – but she is just not in the place in her life, yet – where she can pull off a full Nan Kempner,

  • Caitlin O’Brien

    No. Go home.

  • blairdawn

    Eek! There might have been hope if it was actually her size.

  • rloliveira

    80’s officewear meets grandmother’s nightgown meets ill-fitting little house on the prairie meets halloween.

  • Macunaima

    Holy 1986, Batman!

    It’s possible that Fan Bing Bing could make that dress work, but poor little Amanda doesn’t have a chance.

  • marlie

    She’s wearing a red satin robe.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    She’s back in the body bag from Veronica Mars.

    • Gwyndall

      THAT’s where I know her from… Thank you!

  • stayl

    Too much dress

  • crash1212

    The only thing that makes this satin robe work on the model is those bad ass black leather gloves – of course wearing same in real life would render ones hands useless and require a keeper to do things like raise a glass to ones lips and cut ones steak. In short – this is not a look for the real world, and certainly not a look that our little Amanda could pull off in any event.

    • demidaemon

      If you had a permanent manservant, I could see the positives of that situation.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I mean, the cuffs are covering her hands, that’s how big it is. Does she not have the power to say “no”?

    OTOH, it’s satin and there are no sitting-down wrinkles so it could be that it was thrust upon her back stage, like a choir robe.

  • Diego!

    I don’t know but I found her really annoying… I’m sorry, I’m sure she must be a really sweet girl, but I can’t stand her!

  • Date night for the sister wife?

  • Wendi126

    Mistress of the red tent

  • Oh god.

  • golden_valley

    Someone help her. She’s been attacked by a red satin sheet!

  • Not applicable

    she looks like she should be hosting a fondue party and collecting keys in a big fish bowl.

    • Donna Tabor


  • conniemd

    Why would a designer make long puffed sleeves and then hide them on the runway with gloves 3/4 of the way up the arms? I also hate the slit she added to the dress, as it ruined the long clean line on the model and made the dress even more overwrought and baggy looking.

    • PastryGoddess

      The slit was already there, the model was standing still so it wasn’t open.

  • formerlyAnon

    There’s something about this dress in juxtaposition with her good looks (I thinks she’s light years prettier than a lot of women lauded as lovely) that made me think “Oh, she’ll be able to Marry Well, in the old fashioned sense.” I hope it’s just me and some subterranean connection to images of well-married matrons in satin loungewear in old movies.

  • MzzPants

    Should have gone with the gloves. Otherwise, it’s a mumu.

  • KayEmWhy

    Sorry, NO.

  • j_anson

    It’s like – it wants to go the “long, flowing, and chic” route but then some ill advised designer just had to hang a bunch of crap off the neck and now it’s not succeeding at anything.

  • Lori

    Well, that’s unfortunate.

  • JP

    Girl, That Is SO NOT Your Dress. In fact, I don’t think that’s anyone’s dress.

  • Colin

    If only she’d cut off those sleeves, and stand perfectly statuesque

  • Anniebet

    I loathe floppy bows at the neck. This one deserves its own category of loathliness.

  • bd73

    is she playing mary-kate olsen in a movie?

  • Haha I totally thought this was going to be another GoT theme post until I realized it wasn’t a cast-member.

  • PrunellaV

    Makes me want to curl up in bed with a good book and a cup of tea.

  • l_c_ann

    When I spent more time deciding that the model’s right side was photoshopped to remove the guy in back of her, instead of looking at the slightly worked fabric and Amanda, it’s not a good thing, at all.

  • demidaemon

    A mature woman’s nightgown. How chic. *vomits*

  • Carrieanno

    All she needs are her teddy bear and fuzzy slippers.

  • ankali

    Y’all, I kinda… like this? In another venue? I’m just thinking it would be so much fun to wear to a midnight showing of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane at the Castro theater. Who’s with me?

  • She looks like the patron saint of flight attendants

  • TheAmericaness

    Mommie Dearest is turning in her grave.

  • Oooh, no. Too much bulk around her neck and shoulders. Too much hair. Too much red. OMGosh.

  • poggi

    Where’s the other one? This is a little Olsen twin. Although to be fair they would have worn it in black or cream.

  • Pudgy Possum

    Too much for such a little thing, not to mention the sleeves were a bad idea. Also, wrong colour for her, or the makeup doesn’t compliment the look . . .

  • MannahattaMamma

    She looks like the hostess at a “key party” in the suburbs, circa 1972; very “Ice Storm” …

  • Anplica Fiore

    One of the Olson Twins called – they want their dress back…

  • librarygrrl64

    Ugh, awful. Compounded by an awful hairstyle.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Does the model have the power to slurp up golf caddies into her, um, body?
