      “And the award for “Most Random Use of a Lace Scrap” goes to…”

      • Deb_Lynn

        looks like the hanger-holder strip that should be hidden or cut out.

        • Airkisses

          Looks like a boob-bridge

      • Kristin McNamara

        And the award for ‘Most Likely to Get Asked 271403 Times If You MEANT to Wear Only One Earring Or If You Just Lost One” goes to…

      • Jessica Freeman

        I also feel this random scrap is upside down. Pity.

    • abish

      from farther back, that extraneous piece of lace looks like a tape measure.

      • H2olovngrl

        Yep. Exactly what I saw too. “And let’s see…from nipple to nipple we have 7 1/2 inches…“

    • Jennifer

      Not sure this is what they meant by “Always recycle.”

    • MilaXX

      I almost like this. I like the natural face, but the lips need just a hint of color. A pale peach lipstain perhaps? The shoes look too small.

      • kmk05

        It’s either that or they’re so high that she is unnaturally perched and has to tense her toes just to keep her balance.

        Her face and her makeup here are phenomenal: I would prefer a more pinkish, her-lips-but-better stain. Or maybe a gloss?

        • MilaXX

          Agreed on the shoe. The lips just need a touch of some sort of color.

          • Leigh David

            I have officially turned into my mother, “You look so much better with some lipstick.”

      • marlie

        See, I don’t even think the face is natural. Sure, she’s naturally tanned, but there’s a tad too much eye shadow and bronzer going on for my taste. Or, more accurately, the eye shadow and bronzer aren’t deployed well.

        • MilaXX

          It’s not a natural face, it’s a natural look.I think the main issue it the lip are too dead looking. If she had a bit more color on the lips, it would balance everything out.

          • marlie

            Perhaps. But I agree that the nude lips don’t belong here.

        Nah, just Resting Bitch Face.

        • Danothemanoh

          No, I mean some makeup queen took out their frustrations with life on Olivia’s poor eyebrows.

          • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

            Okay, Resting Bitch Face with embellishment.

            • tween00

              Resting Bitch Face with EYEBROWS!!

    • PastryGoddess

      Thank you for coming dear, please try again

    • Synnae

      That dress looks like a scrap fabric challenge on Project Runway. It’s not doing anything for her. And the shoes look painfully small. Not all is bad though, the natural make-up is gorgeous and I love that earring.

      • Rhonda Shore

        It sure does…she would have been better off with a classic black dress than this hodgepodge.

    • sekushinonyanko

      This might work better if there were some color somewhere. On the lip? Or the shoe? Or the bag? Anywhere.

    • MoHub

      This is wrong on so many fronts.

      • kimmeister

        Would probably be wrong on many backs as well!

    • MoHub

      The multi lengths just look like a mistake.

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

      What a spectacular fail for such a non effort.

    • Sobaika

      She needs a new makeup gay as soon as possible.

      • kimmeister

        Why is it so hard for them to get eye shadow right on her??? That green/gold is so wrong for her coloring.

      • sweetestsith

        Seriously! She has very interesting features, and they almost never do ANYTHING to enhance them. It’s so weird, and irritating. Good makeup is an art, but they should AT LEAST be able to manage basic makeup. So.much.rage.

    • trisker

      That lace bit looks like hemming tape!

    • frannyprof

      I so much prefer her casual looks to her RC looks.

    • artgirl9

      That the designer made a conscious decision to stick that lace binding whatever across what was a decent neckline is criminal. Hate the multi-length thing going on now. At least this dress avoids the party in front/business in back mullet look that I am seeing WAY too much.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      Do not like.

    • Trisha26

      I see bizarre wrinkled slip. Where’s the dress?

    • bertkeeter

      A wrinkled yawn!

    • NoveltyRocker

      For whatever reason, her publicity pics make it most evident how important the right makeup colors are. Maybe it’s the beautiful but rare (for Hollywood) olive of her skin? That brow color and blush are looking dirty. If she hangs around long enough, I think a pro makeup artist will nail it and the resulting photos will be eyeball-combusting. And then I’ll have to run out and but all the same shades cuz I have the same damn problem with natural palettes reading muddy.

    • demidaemon

      Wow. What an ugly bland dress with stupid geegaws on it to wear to what is probably the most relevant event of your career.

      • conniemd

        This, totally.

    • SugarSnap108

      So someone took a plain black slip, tacked a piece of lace on it, and made some random cuts along the hem. And then she decided to wear it. All right.

    • velomango

      At first I was all “oh no, not that lace scrap thing” then I kept looking, and scrolling…and now I’m a convert. I like it. The quasi-mullet skirt needs to go, but I love the earrings (very retro). Overall, it’s a “why the hell not?” look.

    • kimiakay

      What a strange, strange dress, Miss Olivia. Whoever chose this for you needs a good talking to. And only one earring?

    • NBG

      Dress looks like a nightgown that you did not wash on the delicate cycle as the label directed.

    • http://twitter.com/carelessriver Caterina Maria

      Someone reached into a rag bag and started stitching.

    • Aurumgirl

      A mound of scraps from old, wrinkly, worn-out slips. Decorated with a lace scrap to keep the straps from sliding down with the tiniest movement. Someone ought to lose a job over this outfit.

    • lobsterlen

      Could someone plus tell her to put some powder on her forehead. The glare is always blinding with this one. Even if I am ok with what she is wearing I am distracted by the blinding forehead light. I don’t think I know of any other lady star who constantly has forehead glare like Olivia. Its such an easy fix.

    • therealkuri

      Not a fan of the dress but I *heart* those earrings.

    • decormaven

      This gal needs a reality show, stat. One where they finally locate the proper stylist and MUA for her. It would be stunning to see the outcome. She is consistently mis-dressed and mis-cosmeticized (shoot me, I’ll go there with that homemade word). I’m getting where I don’t want to see her PR shots, because no one ever gets it right with her look.

    • crash1212

      Who took her other earring? I would be on board with this look if not for the back hem-flap. Why? Why the hem flap? Also…blot. Great eyebrows.

    • MandyM

      This looks a lot like Dita von Teese’s pilates clothes from a few days ago. Dita looked better though….

      • marlie

        And Dita was AT Pilates, not on a red carpet.

    • marlie

      The dress is insanely boring (and looks like a nightie), and her makeup is really unflattering.

    • Louise Bryan

      Frankendress, fer sher.

    • Danielle L

      I just don’t get her. Well done for being a fellow Oklahoma girl, but I just don’t. Maybe it’s my jealously that she got to kiss Nick Miller, I don’t know.

    • Darva Sutra

      Hire a makeup gay, already, bitch! You are incapable of doing your own makeup – you’ve eyebrowed yourself angry! And hire gay #2, a NON-boring/blind/crackhead stylist! Seriously, I’ve seen here look great in ads, mag editorials, etc. She is abusing her good genes with this DIY fuckery.

    • jmorino08

      I don’t even know what’s happening here. This dress confounds me

    • librarygrrl64

      Ugh, what is with that random strip of lace across the top??? WTF?!?
