      Bukkake. That’s all.

      • Levedi

        I was thinking painter’s cover-alls, but I’m forced to agree with you.

      • Darcy H

        Cannot unsee.

      • Josefina Madariaga SuĂĄrez

        Thank you, now I can’t unsee.

      • Insidiously

        You did not just go there…love!!

        • Kristin McNamara

          For a hot second there, I felt really ashamed that I know that word, but…. evidently so do many of my fellow BKs so I guess I shouldn’t feel too self-conscious. Haha :) I can always count on you guys!!

          • hughman

            Oh honey, chatting about hemlines and PR meltdowns gets so tiresome. Being well rounded is part of being stylish and chic. 😉

            • Kristin McNamara

              HAHA. Touché, touché.

            • LucĂ­a Gavello

              I had to google that… I shouldn’t have done it at the office.

            • hughman

              Probably not. There’s a thin line between well rounded and unemployed.

            • kimmeister

              Thanks for the warning . . .

            • conniemd

              didn’t do it at the office, but wish I’d never learned that word.

            • Kristin McNamara

              Oh dear.

      • Louise Bryan

        I am unfamiliar with that term. I was thinking how it’s a nice channel of Jackson Pollock.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        Spot on! So to speak :)

        • drdarke

          Yeah…@Louise Bryan….

          That’s just what it means…!

      • formerlyAnon

        I dunno. What are they *doing* to get all those colors?

        • demidaemon

          Obviously, IV testicle dye.

          • formerlyAnon

            Needles+ testicles. Though I know there’s a fan base for just about anything, that strikes me as wrong on such a visceral level, I cringed & I don’t even have balls.

    • flamingoNW

      Take the hand. Out. Of. The. Pocket. OUT. Is there some stylist who keeps telling people to put their hands in their pockets on the red carpet? Make it stop!

    • Jessica Freeman

      I really liked this, but I wished for a colored shoe, the gray makes no sense. The top at the neckline seems a bit wonky, it needs a slightly better fit. Otherwise, well deployed lady pants.

    • Josefina Madariaga SuĂĄrez

      The way the straps are located make her look like she has man shoulders and an extremely tiny waist and hips. It takes talent to make such a toned body look wrong.

      • MartyBellerMask

        Yeah, the top part looks odd. But MAN is she a gorgeous woman.
        Hair looks like shit though.

      • kimmeister

        Yes, wide set straps are not her friend. I’m getting rid of the top I’m wearing today for the same reason!

        • Little_Olive

          This x 10. She looked way better with straight hair, no bangs.

    • JauntyJohn

      Jackson Pollock for Garanimals.

      • Sara Leigh Merrey

        My first thought. Well, the Jackson Pollock part.

    • annabelle archer

      What the tittscrepancy is this?

    • ConnieBV

      Aside from the bukkake issues, the fit is atrocious and the finishing is heinous. Looks like she ripped into that center seam at the deep v. Also, Christ that toe.

    • Susan Velazquez

      Her boobs look weird and goddammit why couldn’t she have polished her toe nails? Hair is cute tho

    • JasmineAM

      One should always get a pedicure before going on a red carpet. Or just wear closed toe shoes.

      • Tracy_Flick

        I think she does have one, it’s just a light color. Still, her feet look absolutely tortured.

        • Sarah

          Yes! Put down the stilettos and put on some antibiotic ointment girl! Your feet are crying.

        • Beardslee

          Yep, her toes are hanging on for dear life. Ouch.

    • Warrior89

      I kind of like this – and I like that her accessories are minimal. It helps that she is beautiful. But: paint your toenails.

      • rajf

        I think they are painted and they match her fingernails.

    • OrigamiRose

      Oh my, I know our toes take a beating in heels but that just smacks of neglect.

    • majorbedhead

      I hope she has a podiatrist on speed dial. It’s giving me toe cramps just looking at her poor, mangled feet.

      I can’t really top the Bukkake comment. *doffs hat at hughman*

    • dncnginthedark

      Y’all are really judgey about toenails.

    • barbarienne

      Ladies, there are lots of ways to deploy much visible breast on the runway, but the #1 thing is they should never look as if they’re trying to leap off your body and run away, or trying to hunch down and hide. They should look glad to be there.

      This woman’s breasts look as if they want to hide, but may just try sneaking around to the back and escaping.

    • Random Compliments

      I kinda loved this when I first saw this but then I read the comments and….well, bukkake.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Titscrepancy, too-wide neckline making her look like a linebacker, badly hemmed pants… It’s very Project Runway.

    • conniemd

      I think Nina Dobrev is really, really pretty. I didn’t even recognize her here, because her hair was awful and straggly. She is the epitome of titscrepancy in this picture as her left boob looks decidedly bigger than her right. Need to tape the bodice or something because you never want to walk down the runway with different sized boobs. Also, I really dislike when you have such a strong/intense pattern and use it for both pants and top. One or the other with a plain color to offset the pattern.

      Ya know, that bra thingy that Naya Rivera wore would have looked great with these pants

    • CommentsByKatie

      Love her, but this is a little messy for me. I think I could deal with the wild print if it were a sleeker look, but that top is looking hiddy sloppy.

    • BP180

      I understand that there are some things wrong with this outfit, but whatever. She looks great.

    • lrhg

      If I was a starlet I would be trying to steal her makeup people stat.

    • MilaXX

      Is it the ankle of the picture or is there some sort of weird titscrepancy going on? Other than that I like this outfit.

    • formerlyAnon

      Is it a trick of the ensembles’ proportions, or are her shoulders really Barbie-like in how much wider they are than her hips?

    • Trisha26

      1000% less cleavage and a pedicure and I’d be okay with the entire look. Even the peplum.

    • Joyce VG

      Not a fan.

    • Ashley Ellen Wilson

      Oh, I think this is fabulous! Except I’d feel like my tits were about to fall out all night!

    • poggi

      It’s not perfect but she’s the right girl, of the right age, in the right place for this.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I am WAY obsessed with this outfit. I don’t care if it looks like Bukkake.

      • Cz

        Me, too. I just think “Pollock Pantsuit” and it evolves.

        I want this outfit and the body to go with it.

      • kmk05

        I absolutely LOVE it and now I can’t unsee thank you so much T_T

        I think the only thing not really working for me is the cleavage (she should have used more tape, or they should have taken it in a skosh) and the air, which is slightly too messy.

    • Patricia Hoffman

      Is it just me or does she have crazy long feet?

    • Imasewsure

      I like this. It’s cute and different …. hot but sweet

    • SorayaS

      Fabulous!! This is a WERQ for me- love that she wore pants, love that she wore a ponytail, love the purse, makeup is stunning but it always is on her. Love it love it love it.

    • ankali

      Well, this is a fail. But it did make me nostalgic for the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 painter collection, and I just spent a good 15 minutes drooling anew over those gowns, so there’s that.

    • frumpybiscuits

      I am sooo happy I learned the word “tittscrepancy” today. My day is complete. Bless you all.

    • marlie

      I could possibly like it if it didn’t look like the top was gaping under her arms.

    • quiltrx

      I usually really like what she wears, but I cannot sign off on this one!
      I almost like the pants, if the top had been a solid color and less revealing.
      But HOLY TITSCREPANCY–this might be a new record. It doesn’t even look like she HAS a right boob! And the left one is coming out for a chat. :(

    • NYCRecessionista

      Love this look!

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      I think she looks great. It’s a young, fun look.

    • Crystal

      She’s gorgeous but. I hate this.
