    I really, really like this. It veers oh-so-close to a bit too much for my tastes, but doesn’t land there. And somehow the shape of the dress is almost as prettily displayed as it is on the mannequin. Too bad the backdrop, or the wearer herself, weren’t a darker color to better show off the dress.

    ETA: Maybe pod people have unbeknownst to myself, taken me over. Because I looked again and can’t believe that my overall reaction is still positive. But it is. We’ve found my inner princess, apparently. And it was Zac Posen who did it. I feel . . . highly disconcerted.

      Uh oh, get yourself to the fashion clinic stat!

    Bitchy bride makes her bridesmaids wear this dress, I’m thinking.

  • shineoftheever

    She told Ryan Seacrest that she had fun starving herself to fit into the dress. Maybe she was trying to be funny? I doubt it though.

    Channeling Jayne Mansfield?

    This is way too precious for her, I think.
    And the unfinished edges of the foofaraw make me feel VERY stabby.

  • Joey Melliza

    you are not alone! although i think it would have been better if he made the edges of the ruffles frayed like what’s happening on the sleeve thingies….

    Gurl, I don’t know whose dress that is, but it sure as hell ain’t yours.

    Love the hair and makeup, though.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Love everything but the color of the dress.

  • altissima

    I agree with you. With the fabric and the ruffles, the dress looks as though it could stand up on its own!

    Is she sprouting fins in her back? Is she turning into some sort of seahorse bridesmaid?

  • Diego!

    I love it!!! The bottom of the dress is unbelievable! What I don’t like is that every star wore the same bracelet?? Weren’t there any other jewels available?

  • Kristobel

    Ew. She looks like my “Peach Princess” Barbie I had when I was six.

  • berlinmama

    I don’t know why – I shouldn’t – but I like it.

  • demidaemon

    Overdesigned to death. Good try Julie, but you should of went with a de la Renta.

  • demidaemon

    If you saw it in motion, it looked those pieces were about to fly off at the drop of a hat.
