      According to a Hawaii guide book I have – “flattering on all body types”. Bleh

      • Nancer

        So funny! I posted that this was just bleh, then scrolled down and found your comment. We are in agreement. Bleh is the word of the day!

    • SugarSnap108

      And also no-no.

    • Louise Bryan

      Also uhn-uhn

  • RL McGruder

    Ummmmm. Just, ummmm.

    Seriously, what is even happening here?

    • DCSheehan

      I don’t know, but I’m scared.

    • Reality TV Casting

      i know- what is going on with her, is her face just swollen and sweaty, is this a drug-abuse issue? she has been looking progressively worse for years

    • Kate

      I won’t- save the last dance- for you

      • DCSheehan

        O, no!

  • greenwich_matron

    It’s a bit of a potato sack, but I like the colors.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      I don’t understand the colors. Is the bottom third of the dress the sartorial equivalent of Dorothy waking up in technicolor Oz?

      • 3boysful

        I was like, ok, not great, but . . . then–scroll-down fug.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Maybe she’s expecting.

  • veriance

    Smells faintly of stink boot and shame.

    • kimmeister

      That’s why she got ventilation installed in the toes.

  • zenobar

    If they ever make a Martha Stewart biopic…

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Dang good call! I never saw it before.

    • decormaven

      They need to cast her for second season of Orange Is the New Black.

    • alyce1213

      They did, with Cybill Shepherd.

      • demidaemon

        That was on Lifetime, right? I’m pretty sure it doesn’t count.

        • alyce1213

          You’d think so, right? But no, it was network — CBS.

  • Diego!

    Gurl… I want to make this the clearer as possible… are you doing drugs? You look like Lindsay Lohan right now! And worse, because at least Lindsay is trying to recover from her hell! Now get back home and burn this ugly dress and shoes, fire your “make-up artist” and your hairdresser too, they are being mean to you!

  • Sarah

    Hey, she’s got a belt! Points!

    • Little_Olive

      To me that belt is so, so sad it makes me want to pinch her cheeks, like it’s so cute that she tried.

  • rosie5215

    She kind of looks like a low rent Jennifer Tilly.

  • Joey Melliza

    bette midler looks more youthful!

  • Ms_Flyover

    I think she looks really great from the waist up.

  • MilaXX

    mall clothes

  • Nancer

    No, Julia. Just no. Go home and put on something appropriate for how cute you are. This is just bleh.

  • flamingoNW

    Big fat ’80s NOPE to that.

  • jorinde

    what’s up with her? I used to think she’s pretty.

  • Watts

    She looks like your average Walmart shopper at a cookout where she’s trying to woo the recently divorced gym coach.

    In other words, trashy but aspirational.

  • Sweetvegan

    I love this print! it’s wasted here, though. This dress is not only shapeless (which isn’t always a bad thing) but too big for her.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Pretty sure I saw that dress in a ColdWater Creek in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1998….

  • Chipster

    This could have been cute but the belt and those boots just don’t work with that dress.

  • NMMagpie

    Beautiful woman with the wrong dress and wrong color of blonde. Unfortunate.

    • Beardslee

      That blonde is really bad on her; doesn’t complement her skin and is aging. She also looked great when she sported that sleek bob.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    I’m sure something terrible happened with her dress and shoes, and she took this from her granny or something like that

  • PastryGoddess

    I can’t even…what?!? No! Why are you doing this to my eyes Julia? What is wrong with you…gah!

  • jmorino08

    She looks like Julia Stiles’ mom.

  • This just makes her look frumpy, dress, shoes, hair, and makeup.

  • marlie

    That dress is really, really ugly, the shoes and belt are too heavy, and that’s the wrong shade of blonde for her.

  • decormaven

    That is one tough look in the make-up department. Dear, if that make-up was applied by a “professional,” it’s time to find another MUA.

  • Qitkat

    Julia! what is going on here? Are those parrots on the bottom of your uhh…dress? Are you trying to disguise that you are a female? Did you borrow that belt from a Hell’s Angel ladyrider? Did she also show you how to pose to try to look fierce? We are all very confused here in bitterkittenland.

  • Judy_S

    Today has really been a pajama party–her, Cate Blanchett, Rita Ora.

  • bellafigura1

    Oh, dear.

  • Imasewsure

    Julia Styles for Buffalo Exchange…. yuck

  • kimmeister

    I thought she was Malin Akerman at first glance. Somebody hide this dress before Vanessa Hudgens gets her paws on it.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    This looks like what a hardcore harley chick might wear to the beach.

  • Trisha26

    Oh dear.

  • macwell

    I love Julia, but – this is ridiculous. If we pay money to see them in whatever, they should be pole dancing the hell outta that red carpet. This is just….not fair to eyes in general. 🙁

  • crash1212

    No. Just no. To all of it. From hair down to those STUPID shoes.

  • JauntyJohn

    I never saw it before this photo series: Young Mae West.
    Get her a push-up and someone call and pitch HBO. It could be brilliant.
    As for the dress… well, it looks comfortable.

  • Introspective

    dress gives her no shape. and her hair is brassy. and the makeups non existent. overall this is such a meh.

  • Lilyana_F

    Oh, wow, that looks so.. unfortunate

  • E. D.

    Ugh. The whole thing, including hair and shoes, is a mess.

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    I hate…hmm…all of it.

  • CNM

    What the fuck is this?!? Terrible terrible. Maybe MAYBE it’d be passable if she lost the sad droopy belt and open toed bondage boots.

  • nannypoo

    I like the fabric but the dress is absolutely shapeless. She looks awful.

  • kirkyo

    Gotta love how she’s trying to serve up this putrid mess.

  • demidaemon

    Wow, the style call for this premiere must have been “aggressively ugly with horrible shoes.”

  • conniemd

    Looks like a beach wrap. Interesting fabric, but what was done with it was boring.

  • little britches

    Aloha! I love the dress because it’s nylon and cost $8 at El Mundo on the corner. It’s a hot textile for the price – and it’s all she’s got right now. Lady needs to go back to brunette, get a pixiesh cut, let her brows grow a wee bit. Also: apply flattering makeup, switch the belt for a long but simple necklace, burn the boot-things, add some bangles and a fun clutch. I’m feeling teal, white or leather as nice accessory colors. Ideal result: free n’easy luau chic. Just keep away from sparks or open flame.

  • PeaceBang

    Something very weird is going on with her face or make-up. She doesn’t look like Julia Stiles. She’s starting to morph into someone random, like Karen Black.

    • decormaven

      Oooh, that is scarily on point.

  • JS is one of my girl crushes, but her hair is way too blonde here, and edgy is not her venue.

  • Slap on a sequined top and head to Waikiki for a bash with other women of a certain age.

  • quiltrx

    I think this print might be great on something more shaped. But it goes a little tutti-frutti in this caftanesque form.

  • judybrowni

    She looks like someone with a vague resemblance to Julia Styles, and that schmatta isn’t helping any.

    Cheap, wrong belt (c’mon, i’ll bet the girl still has a waist in there, somewhere) and I hate, hate, hate booties with the toes peeking out with the fire of a thousand suns.

  • She looks like a middle-aged lady shopping at Whole Foods. Obviously, not a flattering look for Julia.

  • MissFern

    hurting my soul.

  • twilightgirlportland.com

    Really blah. She looks all washed out. I think she’s better with darker hair.

  • ErmengardeGreen

    Yow. Is she OK? She looks crazy.
