      I think the look on the lady in the background checking Miss Naya’s rear view says it all. WERQ indeed.

      • Rhonda Shore

        and her legs!!! Best i’ve seen her look!

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

      She is undeniably HAWT.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      This is a bit too sparkly for June IMO. And something’s wrong with the makeup but I can’t quite articulate what it is.

      • mlle

        Her lips are blending into the rest of her face.

    • moppet

      So pretty — love the unusual color, but why does the hemline look so puffy and wonky (it’s not Naya, it’s the same on the model.)

    • Randy Noak

      She looks like a department store Christmas tree.

      • JosephLamour

        If you put it this way, it sounds like a good thing: Department Store Douglas Fir Realness.

          After I read this, I had Coffee Snorkling From My Nose Realness.

      Does she know she’s being attacked by bedazzled sea sponges?

    • Latin Buddy

      This girl needs to be in more movies. She is the only reason I still watch Glee. She has a lot of sass and she can sing.

      • l_c_ann

        Glee is still on? Who knew?

      • Glam Dixie

        Did you see she was #1 on the After Ellen Hot 100 website poll? Must be pretty popular.

    • newleaf1

      She can’t possibly be planning on sitting in that thing, but she looks really great standing up.

    • Janet B

      Love this on Naya. She looks so perfect all of my usual reservations fall away.

    • hughman

      Time Machine JLo FTW.

      • majorbedhead

        Seriously. I never realized how much they look alike. It’s uncanny.

        • gabbilevy

          Me either, and that was my first thought when I saw these photos. There’s something about this dress, this hair, this makeup that just screams JLo in a way she never has before

          • fursa_saida

            The hair is definitely a big part of it. Maybe also the high neckline?

      • Rand Ortega

        JLo is throwing a Diva sized tantrum & she has no idea why.

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

          Naya better watch her back. I don’t know JLo personally, but my instincts tell me she’d take out a hotter, younger threat.

          • kno1ok

            Watch her back? Punster.

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

              HA! Totally unintentional.

    • girliecue

      Love the look, but love the model’s shoes more. Still hoping Miss Naya becomes the biggest breakout star from Glee. Showing up looking like this definitely helps establish she’s a bona fide STAR!

    • MilaXX

      She looks cute. Werq indeed

    • formerlyAnon

      Love the dress, love it on her. Think her shoes are under-performing.

    • ballerinawithagun

      This looks too wintry for me, but it is gorgeous and so is she. Does she have a lace tattoo on her perfectly toned left thigh or is she wearing lace trimmed Spanx or shorts so that there is no over exposure?

      • MilaXX

        I think it’s just a sparkle folded over for the hem.

    • Glam Dixie

      I prefer the shoes the model is wearing, but man, she looks slammin’.

    • alyce1213

      Cool dress, but should be an inch or two longer – it looks sort of chopped off. Also, it’s not for summer.
      What’s that on her right breast? Looks like a displaced nipple. Is that titscrepancy we’re looking at?
      The color and fabric are beautiful and I love the Jackie O neckline. The starbursts look like little fireworks exploding on the dress and I love that.
      I’d like to see the v-back.

      • Heather

        I’d also like this to be just a tad longer.

    • Trisha26

      She looks like a young JLo. Not crazy about the collar, color or length.

    • SugarSnap108

      Pretty dress! Wish she wore shoes like the model’s, though. And I think the skirt is a smidge too short — It just looks oddly proportioned with the top.

      • ankali

        Completely agree about the length; that neck- and waistline need a longer skirt. Pretty otherwise, though.

    • filmcricket

      Way too orange.

    • Shawn EH

      Slut cut on the skirt, otherwise nice.

    • Sara__B

      I’m not sure the silhouette? proportions? of neckline, sleeves, and skirt length are quite right, but she looks stunning anyway.

      • understateddiva

        I like the shorter skirt; gives it a mod feel.

    • flamingoNW

      Stunning! She looks flawless. I really don’t see much of a J Lo resemblance at all. I really would like to see her in more things. She and Britney are my favorite things on Glee, the only reason I occasionally watch.

    • ZnSD

      Sparkle snaps around the world! Werq indeed.

    • GTrain

      Shades of J Lo but she looks good regardless.

    • conniemd

      I have to lo really hard to find a Naeem Khan dress that I don’t like. Just a classy designer. She looks great in that simple but chic and expensive looking dress.

    • CeeRich

      Shutting it down.

    • bellafigura1

      Now that’s a bun!! Perfection (Emily Van de Camp, take notes.)

    • SpillinTea

      Serving FISH. She is giving me Carmen Carerra with that hair and I love it.

      • mhleta


    • Monabel

      She looks top-heavy. Akward.

    • RuthGo

      She looks like Baby J.Lo in the very best way. Man, she’s got fantastic legs.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg


    • stephbellard

      Naya needs to take aside Lea and those other hos from Glee and teach them how to wear clothes.

      • demidaemon

        I don’t know. They are all hit or miss for me, with Lea more often in the miss department. I think they all need a stylist intervention.

    • Anniebet

      Shoes are not having a good week here on TLo. These don’t add to the score, IMO. But, she’s pretty danged great, in spite of a skirt that needs a good 2 more inches for balance.

    • Patricia Gillett

      I adore the diva hair with this. I have seen so many teeny buns give lady stars pinhead lately, it’s great to see a truly fantastic updo. You go, Miss Naya!

    • Krafty_L

      I would love to see this dress – minus the slut cut on the hem – on Christina Hendricks.

      • mhleta


    • cowper

      How is this a WERQ? She’s Miss Chinatown on top, Christmas Barbie on the bottom: Stiff lacquered bun, brocade dress, skirt wayyyyy too short, icky beige heels.

    • plinkiedoodle


    • bertkeeter

      TAD short!

    • marlie

      This is gorgeous. I love everything about this look.

      Though it seems a little “holiday party” to me.

    • lrhoff

      A tad bit longer hem would have done it for me….

    • frannyprof

      Somewhere in Beverly Hills JLo is making a Naya voodoo doll…

    • Zorkness

      Alien creatures have attached themselves to that dress

    • mhleta

      This is indeed a WERQ. She’s managing to pull off the near impossible, which to wear a VERY short dress and still look like a lady (vs a lady of the evening.) Well done. Snaps to her trainer, too; you could forge steel on those legs. I wish I could find out what kind of lotion they use to make their skin look that great. Cat Deeley work this adorable sequined play suit this week and her legs looked amazing, partly because they are amazing, and partly because they had just the right sheen to them. What does that? Anyone?

    • carnush

      So beautiful! Lit from within and glowing like a dream. I would have gone with sandals instead of pumps, though.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      YES! YES! YES!

    • stubbornthoughts

      Love this. She’s like a young J.Lo, if J.Lo went back in time and wanted to do everything in life better with some class.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Don’t you just love when your first response is “How fun!”. WERQ it! nicely done.

    • prettybigkitty

      Naya from the block. Very la Lopez.

    • Danielle L

      HATE HATE HATE HATE this talon nail trend. HATE IT.
