Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas at EW’s Comic-Con Celebration

Posted on July 22, 2013

Oh, someone definitely got to them. Someone staged an intervention. Either that or Disney finally perfected their animatronics technology.


“Once Upon a Time” stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas attend Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration in San Diego, California.

Ginnifer Goodwin is wearing a Vionnet jade green crepe de chine mini dress with pleated frills from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection paired with Christian Louboutin shoes and Isharya jewelry.

That is the least robotic the two of them have ever looked together on the RC. For those of you just tuning in, trust us when we say, these two have a laughable history of public appearances where they both look like they literally have sticks up their asses.  Don’t get us wrong; they still don’t look quite human, but at least they’re doing a better job of approximating human facial expressions and body language. We especially love the “whispering in her ear” pose; as if he just remembered something he wanted to tell her in front of a wall of fifty photographers. Kudos to whoever programmed that little move in. No one’s going to wonder just what the hell he had to tell her right there and then. “I love you?” “I left the iron on?” “Your tits look great?” “Look honey, photographers?” “Remember that night in Cabo?” “I’m smiling and whispering in your ear, just like you told me to, mommy?”

Seriously, what could he possibly be saying at that moment?

Bringing this briefly back to fashion, we like the looks here. He’s working a nouveau-Thurston Howell vibe that really suits him and her dress, while odd, works well in the context of the setting. It’s bold, which is just right. Granted, it looks like a maternity dress she put on backwards, but isn’t that just like a robot, darlings? Silly things. We can forgive the turtle dress.

    you guys slay me. Happy birthday indeed

  • “Oh by the way, sweetheart, I’m Seriously Gay.”

    • demidaemon


  • veriance

    If not for the torture device shoes, I’d guess that she’s pregnant.

    • demidaemon

      How does one impregnate a robot? This is the question that needs to be asked.

    • amandafg

      As a 5’7” woman, I’m bound to dislike any woman who can wear heels that high and STILL be shorter than most men. I hope her feet were killing her by the end of the night. *storms off*

  • gabbilevy

    Nope. Horrible dress, ugly shoes. Head looks good though, for once. He looks sharp, but still like a douche.

    • Little_Olive

      Spot on. That dress would be on the sale pile at Zara… not that there would be anything wrong with off-the-rack, but yes when it seems to come from “those that never sold well”.

  • Beautiful fabric, hideous dress.

  • Latin Buddy

    You know…you guys really ding her (rightfully so) for being fashion with a capital F…but I appreciate that she doesn’t come out with another beige nothing.

    • twigg

      Yes she does. His name is Josh.


    Turtle dress AND toe cleavage. Nope, can support this.

  • DuBey2

    Hate the dress. He looks good, tho. Thanks for the Thurston Howell reference!

  • Amanda Herriott Welliver

    That’s TOTALLY a backwards maternity dress. You nailed it.

  • That’s the best I’ve ever seen him look. Her dress is a gorgeous color, but she really looks pregnant from the side.

  • Anathema_Device

    That’s a bad dress, any way you wear it or look at it. He looks fab. I hope he’s saying something really awful, knowing that she has to smile all the while.

  • Emily Dagger

    It’s like that Next Generation episode with Data’s evil twin who stole the emotion chip Dr. Soong created for him.

    (look, if I can’t bust that out on a comic con-related post, when will I ever get the chance?)

    Also, I hate that dress. And I wish I had fewer thoughts than I do about their relationship.

    • Lore. (Busting it out too.)

  • Uft. She is giving me serious, “I hope they speculate as to whether or not I’m pregnant” aka PR Desperation vibes. Also, her consumptive eye make up bugs. He is just too….too. I can’t. With either of them.

  • Danielle L

    Bustles are SO 18th century.

    • So true. And Ginniffer, bustles don’t get worn at the shoulder.

  • eandh99

    i notice we are ignoring the sad droopy white pinafore with POCKETS she wore earlier, as well as Jennifer Morrison’s skintight two-patterns-of-wallpaper strapless dress with Heidi hair. This show, none of them can dress rhemselves except Lana Parilla

  • Tracy Edmunds

    Walked right into them getting off an elevator at Comic-Con. She is stunningly beautiful in person.

    • Rhonda Shore

      i’m not surprised…her skin looks flawless and the pixie cut really works on her.


    I wonder where I could get me a dress that makes me look 40 pounds heavier? I’ve always wanted one!

  • BuffaloBarbara

    That is a truly awful dress. Maybe he’s whispering that he just noticed there are people around who are dressed like their characters. Maybe they should have gone that route…

  • conniemd

    The dress is definitely odd. It is, however, a gorgeous color and as Nina Garcia would say “editorial.” I can see it making its way to a fashion magazine where certain sitting or oddly positioned poses would cover up the design strangeness and just leave the impression of glorious green and waves of material.

    The color is perfection with her alabaster skin and black hair.

  • barbarienne

    Maybe it’s easier to relax in a venue where most of the crowd are fans of your show (or at least a lot of them are), rather than coworkers/peers/potential employers/folks-who-will-judge?

  • Lori

    “Seriously, what could he possibly be saying at that moment?”

    “Do you see the outfit the photographer is wearing? WTH is up with those pants?”

  • AmeliaEve

    This dress reveals to us yet another horror of the hi-lo mullet hemline: we can see the lining through the gap.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I heard hunchbacks were in for fall.

  • Lord are they ever my irrational hate couple. Sorry you two, I’m sure you’re perfectly lovely robots in person, but I can’t.

  • MitchellGilburne

    Looks to me like a Tinkerbell/Peterpan riff – very appropriate for the Neverland setting of S3

  • mjude

    thurston howell vibe…LMFAO!

  • Tracy_Flick

    “Why are you wearing a pillowcase?” That’s what he’s saying.

  • RebeccaKW

    Is it wrong of me to hope he’s whispering something dirty? “These flashbulbs are giving me a major boner.” “I’m so turned on by your posing, I’m going to bang you in the elevator. Thank heavens you wore a dress with such accessibility.”

  • Just Me

    LOVE the color on her. The front of the dress is nice…the back…well, the front of the dress is nice! For the first time, I actually am getting a little Prince Charming kind-of-sexy vibe off of him. Who knew? There is a slight, slight edge to both of them in these pictures – in the facial expressions – that makes them seem much more interesting than what they are wearing. And for these two that is a feat…and a first.

  • Diego!

    They look AMAZING! I love love love her hair! This is the way to dress Miss Ginnifer!

  • majorbedhead

    That dress is just plain weird. Gorgeous color on her, but it’s a sack. A pleated, ruffled sack.

  • decormaven

    Backward curtain call. The color is divine with her hair, though. He looks very togged out, almost too sharp.

  • That’s the most normal smile of hers I have ever seen.

  • MilaXX

    He looks fine and even more human than her. She looks great from the neck up. Looks like she may have let her hair grown in a bit. The color on the dress is great, but the back ruffles are just silly & her shoes are too big. I don’t think her emotion chip is a good as his, cause she’s still looking a bit too robotic for my taste.
    That said they both continue to come across as giant tools.

  • Lizzy

    Doesn’t he usually have facial scruff? I like him better like this.

    Dress…. totally on backwards.

    • No, he’s usually wearing too much makeup.

  • She’s wearing a christmas tree skirt.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    It must be the color that makes me like that dress. It sure as hell isn’t the shape. It’s a great color on her and the approximation of a smile does wonders for her. Almost there kiddies. Just a few more steps and you’ll be a real boy and girl!

  • Fordzo

    He is saying, “Hey! Is your dress on backwards?”

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Love the color of the dress on her, but hate the style. He looks good. As for their faces, I keep thinking of that line from “A Christmas Story” – “It’s… it’s smiling at me…”

  • Cynica

    I’m sorry, but that dress makes me think of one thing only: Scarlett O’Hara’s curtains.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Whatever he’s saying, her face reads, “Shut up, cameras.” That dress is very “Lena Dunham’s closet” to me.

    • demidaemon

      It’s not short enough for Lena, sadly.

  • kimmeister

    The eyeshadow color is not for her.

  • teensmom99

    I had wanted to mention that I’d seen some mullett dresses on actual people (gal on the street) that looked good. But I don’t think this looks that good–just better than some of her other sartorial choices.

  • nannypoo

    Well, that is arguably the ugliest fucking dress I have seen in a good long while.

  • Trisha26

    I said it as I scrolled down “Maternity dress…but it’s backward.” Maybe that’s what he’s telling her? He looks absolutely not bad – and that’s good.

  • Little_Olive

    I love how the backdrop says “Entertainment entertainment entertainment ….” it might as well say “not important stuff not important stuff not important stuff”..

  • PastryGoddess

    I’m just glad I can’t count Ginnifer’s nose hairs in this picture

  • alyce1213

    Nothing about her look, except the color of the dress, is good. The design of the dress is tragic.

    I can visualize them at home practicing their act in the mirror.

  • Anniebet

    I’m not sure why this woman irks the hell out of me, but she does. I like the green color though, but those fricking nude Louboutins look like plastic Payless – yikes, I may be banned!

  • I think they look cute together, but I haven’t been watching them for as long as you guys have. She is one girl who can wear short hair. I believe I read that she changed the spelling of her name–to what it is no–and I can’t figure out why somebody would do that. Her dress is kinda baggy but cute. Her shoes are sooooooo pointy. I realize that many designers and fashionistas love pointed shoes, but these look like she’d need a size or two larger than normal just for the point.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    I used to love her on Big Love. Now she’s on my irrational hate list for some reason – I think that it might have to do with He’s Just Not that Into You.

    …and that dress is hid-jus.

    • twigg

      She just takes herself way too seriously.

  • maggiemaybe

    I’m loving that Thurston Howell III drag he’s rocking! The cut of that dress does not flatter but the color is AMAZING on her.

  • quiltrx

    The dress looks like a backwards maternity dress. Which calls to mind Bernadette’s bustle in ‘Sunday in the Park with George’. See, I blotted out the hiddy with something cool.

  • formerlyAnon

    Retired pairs skating team (now coaching), at a media event.

    I thought it at the thumbnail and the subsequent full view of the photos only reinforced the impression.

  • MaggieMae

    They are too much.

  • marlie

    The color of her dress is gorgeous, and it actually doesn’t really bother me that it looks like a silk pillowcase with neck and arm holes cut out.
