Jennifer Morrison at the “Some Girl(s)” Premiere

Posted on June 27, 2013

Oh for God’s sake. Now our day is ruined. Thanks a lot, Jennifer.


Jennifer Morrison attends the premiere of ‘Some Girl(s)’ in Los Angeles.

We don’t even know what this is. Is she planning on standing in front of something sandy-colored and demonstrating her Ninja-like ability to turn invisible? Or is there some little-known value to matching one’s dress, shoes and bag to one’s skin and hair? Did she suffer some form of trauma on a Crayola factory field trip as a child and now is mortally afraid of color? Help us out here.

Also: that dress appears to be designed to make tall, thin women with great bodies look somewhat less so on all fronts.

    And that hair! First Adele, and now her. Is Bavarian Beer Garden the up-and-coming style trend?

    • AmeliaEve

      When the Olsen twins appear with the Mrs. Olson braids, the circle will be complete.

    • MemHey

      If braids are to be The Thing, can we send them in an Elvish direction?

      • MoHub

        Maybe in a Hell-vish direction.

  • princessricky

    maybe its b/c girl usually wears some cray cray on the red carpet, but i actually like this dress on her. i can tolerate the hair. she failed miserably on the shoes

    • Kristin McNamara

      I’d take cray cray any day. And as Uncles TLo said, it’d also be nice to see some crayola crayola.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      I’m with you. I like it on her, though the shoes make me sad. The hair is a bit much, but not so bad as to make me rant and rave, which I’m prone to do with her.

  • Silly Grrl

    Yikes. When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was going to be someone much older and thicker than her.

  • teensmom99

    Wait, they’re doing a remake of I Remember Mama and no one told me???

  • jwatt85

    LMAO. This commentary just made my morning

  • Its as though that sad, sad, dress is embarrassed, and is slowly trying to slide off of her in shame.

  • PastryGoddess

    I suddenly feel the need to yodel

  • Karen Dickerson

    What.the.hell. This just pisses me off. COLOR IS NOT SCARY, DAMMIT.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    She lives on Amazonia with all of Wonder Woman’s other relatives – only she runs the Swedish Yoga and Weight Loss center there.

    • Funkykatt

      How tall is she, IMBD reads 5’5 1/4″? I am 5′ 11″ so I find it weird to call her tall, unless they are incorrect, of course.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    You know, I was thinking of wearing my hair up in fraulein braids like that. I used to wear it that way sometimes when I was a kid, and it totally keeps it off the neck. But I decided it too twee for my job.

    I’m a children’s librarian.

    About the dress, the less said, the better. Pleated satin potato sack.

    • Domo_Konnichiwa

      Oh that’s totally perfect for your job! My inner child would walk right up and tell you and sing about my favorite things. I remember wearing my hair in double dutch braids as a 30 year old woman and a group of young 20-somethings being snarky about it. Didn’t care! It’s cool on the neck and easy-breezy, no hairspray required!

      • tetisheri

        I’m a 40 year old woman with waist length hair. My hair is currently up in double dutch braids for that exact reason. And if people don’t like it, they can suck it.

        I have to say, I liked Jennifer’s hair, but just because I love braids.

    • formerlyAnon

      I think that if you have the right cheekbones (dutch/german, usually) the wrapped braids can be a very *regal* look, rather than twee. At least if you also avoid wearing anything too cutesy

      • swiss_miss

        Yulia Tymoshenko (Ukrainian politician) always wears her hair like that and maybe “regal” isn’t a bad word to describe how it looks.

    • sweetestsith

      I love the braids, but think they look more “grownup” when they’re pinned in a low/wide knot in the back. Braids are such a pretty and controlled way to show off long hair. Its hard to hate!

      Not wild about this look for formal wear though. It’s a bit odd.

  • High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo

    Sorry, that’s what immediately came to mind. Sad, Jenn, very sad.

    • MilaXX

      you said it all.

    • MoHub

      You beat me to it! Precisely where my beady little brain went.

      • Winter_White

        Haha! MoHub, that IS scary.

    • majorbedhead

      DAMMIT!! I was going to type that exact same thing.

      Someone bring out the marionettes.

  • joancarol

    Is the dress made of fiberglass? It makes me itchy just to look at it.

    • Donna Tabor

      Looks like silk to me.

  • julie

    Her and her braids- someone pull an intervention please

  • CeeRich

    Hair? St. Pauli Girl Realness

  • JP

    I like the belt, but otherwise, WTF?

  • 3boysful

    WIfe of Odin, Norse god.

  • That hair makes me believe there is no God.

  • Annarosa

    Oh, come on, the hair is terrible, but the rest is not so bad… I like the dress, she could have played with accessories to color the total look a bit. just my 2 cents.

  • crash1212

    Huh. As I am never impressed with any of her clothes, I was thinking this was the best she’s looked in a long time. I don’t mind the monochrome look as I’m not that crazed about people wearing color all the time. I don’t hate the braids. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a great look, but – for her – it’s not the worst thing in the world.

    • conniemd

      This. I was expecting some kind of scroll down fug like harem pants, because the thumbnail looked pretty innocuous.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I don’t hate the dress as much as I hate the sleeves. Didn’t we declare nude/silly putty shoes over some time last year? Someone please send that memo to Jennifer.

    • MoHub

      Agreed. Raglan sleeves only make the wearer look round-shoulders, and the sleeves themselves drape oddly.

    • Yes – take out the sleeves, leave the halter neckline and fix the hair and it’d be so much better!

  • filmcricket

    You guys. She’s just heading to a sexy ren faire later and won’t have time to change in between.

    Yeah, yeah, I know the dress isn’t really right for that. The hair and the accessories made me think of it, though.

    • It’d work as a chemise under her skirt and bodice though. Brewer’s wife realness.

  • Heather

    Xanadu…. now we are here, in Xanadu.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Mary McFadden in Xanadu, to be precise.

  • In_Stitches

    Looks like a slutty wedding dress for a women in her second trimester.

    • Ding ding ding! We have a winner in the “Best Comment” category!

  • Chris

    She looks like she’s dressed to perform in some kind of Scandinavian Opera and the bottom half of her dress got cut off.

    • MoHub

      Cue the “Magic Fire” music!

  • This look does not have a single redeeming part. Go home, get undressed, take a shower, and start all over.

    On another note, I thought of you, TLo, while reading the “Ask Teri” column in today’s Wall St. Journal. A reader asked how (other than wearing super high heels) to appear taller than her actual 5’3″. Here’s part of Teri’s answer: “Your best bet in walkable heels are styles that MATCH YOUR SKIN TONE, featuring a low-cut throat and sides, which will have the added benefit of making your foot look smaller too. The unbroken illusion between your foot and your leg is complete.” (emphasis added by me). I know the WSJ is conservative but clearly Teri hasn’t been visiting your blog. The ship sailed on that a long time ago!

    • shorty j

      seriously? That’s… some advice right there. I would personally have gone with “stand up straight and be confident.” But I’m biased. (4’11” and blessed with a “huge personality,” whatever that means, that always makes people pause and go, “You’re, like, 5’4″, right?” Ha!)

  • kat89

    Any minute now I expect her to start yodeling…

    • MoHub

      Maybe it’s a tribute to the late Slim Whitman.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    She’s an extra for Walt Disney’s Brave On Ice.

  • emchicago

    she looks like xena’s girlfriend

    • Candigirl1968

      I was going to suggest one of the Amazons on Wonder Woman’s Paradise Island.

  • If this were floor length, it would be a lovely, if not plain, look for the Opera. But as is, she looks a bit like she wants to take your drink order at Caesar’s Palace.

  • Tatiana Luján

    She’s worn worse things than theese.

    • formerlyAnon


  • TheAmericaness

    Another Captain Kirk boner. 60’s boner. Drop the belt, especially. Oy.

  • Janet B

    It looks like a costume from an old movie, refashioned.

    Shoes and purse belong with a different outfit entirely.

  • Nancer

    I has me a sad.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Ladystars: stop trying to make Heidi Hair happen! It’s not going to happen!

  • MissMariRose

    She looks like a waitress at Caesar’s Palace.

  • Lesley

    she looks like she belongs on top of a Christmas tree

  • Danielle

    Princess Leia dress.

  • Tracy

    Clearly she’s leaving directly to present medals to the rebels for blowing up the Death Star. Alderaan princess gotta do what an Alderaan princess gotta do.

    • Patricia Gillett

      Well played.

      • Tracy
  • ashtangajunkie

    Her face is pretty and I like the belt. That’s all I got because this is TERRIBLE.

  • SugarSnap108

    She so consistently gets it so wrong. I guess that’s a style.

  • claudemtl777

    She’s a “Game of Thrones” Go-Go dancer…

  • Paula Pertile

    She’s a 21st C “Blessing the Wheat Harvest” goddess.

  • jen

    She is a style tragedy.

  • formerlyAnon

    Her face looks so good, it’s a shame they thought she was going up for a Greek yogurt ad.

    • MoHub

      So where is John Stamos?

  • maggiemaybe

    I think she served me a cocktail once at Caesars Palace.

  • I don’t like the dress or the hair, but her face looks great.

  • marishka1

    Are they casting for the “Xanadu” remake?

  • jmorino08

    She looks so schlumpy and sad in this dress! I feel like it’s something Kim Kardashian would have tried to pull off as a maternity dress at some point. And that hair is awful! No one over the age of, say 17, looks good in a Heidi braid.

  • plinkiedoodle

    And what’s with the Heidi hair?

  • Shawn EH

    Is it time to remake Bergman’s Persona?

  • Rand Ortega

    Where are her scale & sword?

    • drdarke

      “I am Ayesha – She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed! Bow down before me, puny mortals!”

  • Eric Stott

    The dress would look better if it were full length – she’d have a sort of Pre-Raphaelite look. As it is the belt is doing a lot of work.

  • mickiemonkey

    She looks like she is about to yodel the bejeezus out of some goats up a mountain.

    • Supernumerary

      It’s as if a Greek goddess and a Swiss milkmaid had a baby together.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Princess Leia approves of your hairstyle.

  • snarkykitten

    Ren Faire bride

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Such a beautiful woman– why is it so hard for her to dress herself?
