      In the legendary word of Troy Dyer: You look like a doily

    • Kiltdntiltd

      um NO. The faggoting technique is ill considered here. And if you’re going to wear a slip under it, wear a correct length one, gurl.

      • Karen Belgrad

        OK, I’ll be the first to admit it… I had to Google that word!

        • vickiefantastico

          Same here! I learned something new today!

      • MilaXX

        I’m more bugged that the sleeves and bottom don’t match up to the rest of the dress making it look like a cheap home sewn design

      • Lucía Gavello

        I love it when you use big words Kiltd! And that’s good because she makes me so utterly sad.

      • Monabel

        True. Now, howsabout a contrasting lining?

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Could lift the whole look a lot!

      • drdarke

        @kiltdntiltd:disqus – I think she wanted the hint of showing off some skin without actually, you know, showing it off, so she wore a slip to give a flash of above-breast torso and lower thigh. Not that it worked, mind – and is there a spare layer over the belt…?

        This looks like a deranged Confirmation Dress – maybe for some Hammer film about Satanic cults where Christopher Lee plays the hero?

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      That two-tone belt is distracting in a bad way. I can’t with the shoes.

      • 3boysful

        Word. Plus the all-over, random faggoting makes me think of perforations, like we should be tearing off pieces of the dress. Or someone already has.

      • kimmeister

        The belt, not bad in and of itself, has absolutely nothing to do with the dress.

      • Kikishua

        OMG, it’s two tone! I was looking at it and thinking that it was threaded through a panel at the front. Which would have been ludicrous.

    • Emily Giovanni

      What is this Blue Jasmine movie anyway, and why are all the stars there? To IMDB….

      • pattyw

        Woody Allen’s newest. Cate Blanchett stars.

        • Emily Giovanni

          Oh, I see. It seemed like a really unlikely combination of stars so I was getting more and more confused. It’s all making more sense now.

    • IAmJ

      I’m surprised I don’t hate this. Better makeup and some nail polish would have been nice, though.

    • Rhonda Shore

      I like the dress but she desperately needs lipstick.

    • annabelle archer

      Human Ambien.

    • SewingSiren

      Perfect white cocktail dress for July. My only quibble is the way the lining (very obviously) stops about a foot short of the hem.

      • Heather

        I agree. Weird huh? Otherwise, I surprisingly like this. (Though her hair is a bit post-yoga.)

    • flamingoNW

      Thank GOD her hair is off her face. Man, the whole bang thing on her was a disaster

    • Nancer

      I think this is pretty. Not spectacular, but nice.

    • marlie

      It’s a pretty, summery dress, and I like it a lot, but the overall look is rather bland.

    • jmorino08

      She always has such a pained look on her face!

      • Jaimie

        Haunted eyes. I love them.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        I know – it always colors my view of her look when she’s featured here. She just looks like she’s not very much fun.

    • KayEmWhy

      Two thumbs down, it looks cheap.

    • MilaXX

      This is a nice dress, but the lining needs to go all the way down. Hair & makeup are nice, but bag & shoes are a fail

    • NOLA_gal

      No kidding, I have a set of cafe curtains made out of hand towels that look just like this. NO.

    • Jessica Freeman

      A white lining would have done better than the flesh-colored. I still don’t think I would like it.

    • teensmom99

      Very Urban Outfitters.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Or Anthropoligie, where it would be made in Third World country and they would charge a fortune for it.

    • Darva Sutra

      Fricking LOVE the clutch. Edie Parker is an amazing line, Brett Heyman is genius. Need to troll ebay more often to find vintage gems for my collection, as these newbies are v expensive (for what they are, plastic).

    • Diego!

      Girl, you look nice, but I’m sick of your tired and constipated face! Get over it! It’s terrible for your image! C’mon, you are an actress, smile!

    • GillianHolroyd

      Love her hair style.

      That dress is going to wrinkle like hell when she sits down.

    • cowper

      This reminds me of the tablecloths in the “fancy” dining rooms of my parents’ friends’ houses–they were covered with clear plastic but the plastic wouldn’t go to the edges of the tablecloths.

    • crash1212

      I love this look. Top to bottom. Good choices all around. Well done indeed!

    • Imasewsure

      Ugly dress.. ugly styling but a beautiful face

    • JP

      I’ll take the purse. She can keep the rest.

    • LaSylphide

      The dress is ok, but it annoys me that the slip doesn’t reach to the hem. That’s all I can look at. Great clutch.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      I’ll give this an “almost.”

    • formerlyAnon

      Maybe if the fabric somehow looked more luxe? There’s something missing that’s keeping this from hitting the mark.

    • Lesley

      she always looks like a sad china doll

    • NoveltyRocker

      The fabric seems so fragile to the point of impracticality but I love how everything here hangs together. The little belt and clutch are unexpected but the repetition of that pretty lavender helps gel things. What up with the super long earring back though?

    • Richard

      I actually like this dress, but this looks so sad on her. Like this whole look is depressing me. It’s a fun little dress that could be jazzed up with the right styling. Everything is just sooo…blah. And the hair/make up/shoes? I’m weeping. I need a Prozac.

    • Randa

      It looks like a bunch of napkins sewn together.

    • Anniebet

      For me, this woman has the potential to be a world class beauty, but never quite seems to get there. Anyway, I’m trying to think what the fabric of this dress reminds me of… maybe it’s christening gowns for babies? Or memories of a summer dress years ago? It could be lovely, but misses, as do the hair and well, all the rest of the look.

    • PhillyDeb

      Really. How IS one supposed to wear that dress? There is no way to make those openings work without seeing a slip line. It is a silly dress.

    • quiltrx

      In my head anyway, the idea of this is much better than the execution.
      I don’t really care for her, so no comment on styling.

    • Nonmercisansfacon


    • demidaemon

      It’s a puzzle dress! has she put it together correctly? I don’t know! (I am feeling very exclamation point today.)

    • PeaceBang

      I’m getting such a strong Bernadette Peters thing from her face!
