    Old school Hollywood, but not costume-y to me. She just looks like a gorgeous grown-up woman!

    • lexilexi

      Yes… with a look that fits in perfectly w/ Boardwalk Empire.

    • macwell

      Almost 41? What Hollywood water is she drinking? ;)

  • Latin Buddy

    Um…we can see your spanx/shapewear

    • Linda LaPaz

      I can’t.

      • Getoverit

        I cant either. I can say that if you could see the outline of it, i would rather have my spanx visible than my dimples or panties.

  • Jennifer

    50s Hollywood meets 50s nightgown.

  • Heather

    Love the dress (tho think it needs to be a bit shorter), hate the shoes.

    • Tanya Wade

      Love the face, hate the shoes.

  • Nancer

    Pretty, but I think the neckline might be a bit too wide on her. Because I think when I see it from the front that it needs to be pulled up a bit, but from the side and back it looks great. So maybe if the straps weren’t so wide, I wouldn’t have that visual illusion. Other than that, I like it.

  • mjude

    very old school…love it

  • marlie

    Very pretty. She’s definitely channeling the 20s, but in a modern, and not too literal way. I wish her shoes weren’t matchy, but oterhwise, she looks nice.

  • MilaXX

    A little too literal with the face & hair. The makeup looks heavy and I hate the shoes with this.

    • mjude

      meow! :)

    • ankali

      You pretty much nailed my problems with this. I also think the dress is a little bit boring — not terrible, but not enough to transcend iffy styling.

  • nannypoo

    If you cut this dress off just below the crotch you would have one of those bathing suits that Esther Williams wore. And I really hate her hair.

    • conniemd

      I hate, hate, hate her hair too. She has a big roundish face which the flatness of the hair emphasizes. She needs some volume or height or something. I love retro Hollywood glam hair styles or even Great Gatsby era, this just is off.

      • gracedarling

        She looked pretty incredible as Bettie Page… Bring back the bangs, girl!

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I love the glamour hair and makeup for the look! Shoes were a misstep but that dress was made for her. Third shot down where you can see the true red of the fabric and the mini hip pop? Love. It.

  • hellkell

    Some better shoes and a statement necklace would have vaulted this into WERQ territory.

  • Mazenderan

    I get a sort of retro feel from this. I do like the length, but something about the neckline is bothering me. It lets the whole thing down a bit – into just ‘pretty summer dress’, rather than fancy premiere. I wish I could pin exactly what it is.

    Don’t like the makeup. Lips and eyeliner are too harsh.

    • Qitkat

      And the hemline looks like it is finished with lace. Tiny bit too long.

  • kimmeister

    This gal must have the hardest working agent in show business. I feel like they’ve tried to make her the IT girl 1,000 times and it just has never taken off. She looks the same as she did 15 years ago.

    • Heather

      I’ve always liked her, and she’s great as Bettie Page in “The Notorious…”

  • formerlyAnon

    I like this a lot, though somehow less as a whole than the sum of the component parts. Not sure why.

  • Jacquelyn

    A necklace maybe? It’s a cute dress, though.

  • crash1212

    This is a beautiful rendition of Boardwalk Empire style done modern day! She looks gorgeous. Shoulda been a WERQ.
    Oops…didn’t see the toe-clenching shoes…must’ve been why this wasn’t a WERQ!

  • Terri Terri

    For some reason, this dress is giving me Doris Day in “Love Me or Leave Me.” I like it!!

  • ampg

    Boring – this whole look is just kind of nothing. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with it, but several friends at the last wedding I went to were dressed more stylishly.

  • Diego!

    Honey, that is not your dress and not your hair and make up either. Nice trying but you miss the spot. *Insert Coins*

  • LaSylphide

    Love the retro-glam hairdo. Dress is nice if unexciting.

    • myristica_fragrans

      marchesa’s much more exciting.

  • Adriana_Paula

    I miss Life on Mars!

  • amanda lynn

    she looks terrified.

    Fabulous! Beautiful. No improvement necessary.

  • LauraAgain

    Simply beautiful!

    I really want to like it, but all I can see is Target pajamas. The pretty kind, but still.
