        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

      • Sarah Guernsey


      • 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.

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

      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.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

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

    • http://www.dogsdotcom.blogspot.com/ Plink

      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.

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      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.
