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

  • 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?

    • 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.

  • 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!

    • 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!
