Kaley Cuoco at the 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Posted on October 08, 2013

This is cute, right?



Kaley Cuoco attends the 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, California in a Parker dress paired with L.K. Bennett sandals.

Parker Janessa Mesh Panel Dress

She’s pretty much standing in a dirt parking lot and making it work, so yeah. It’s cute. Skirt’s maybe a skosh too full for her. We love the shoes. If you’re gonna expose most of the top of a gal’s foot, give her a (relatively) low, sturdy heel so we don’t have to watch her do the monkey-toe grip for life.

She should go throw a drink in Ashley Madekwe’s face for getting the much cuter backdrop for pictures at this event. Seriously, does she not have a publicist? What is she doing modeling her dress in the dirt? Is this an on-the-run pose, like she’s going to jump into that waiting SUV and make her getaway? Or are strange men going to jump out of it and abduct her? It all feels kind of trashy and ominous, no? Poor thing. She should sue.

    Very cute! Rather surprising, considering her penchant for terrible things. Count me in the minority as someone who loves nekkid shoes, but this is a nice balance between exposed, but manageable.
    Plus, she always looks better when she’s not making her sour “fashion” face.

    • terpsichory

      Cute dress and I completey agree about the fashion!face, she has such a nice smile.

      I have no blanket opinion on naked shoes. For me it always depends on the outfit, the gal, the venue, the weather and their respective combinations. But these look… kinda pedestrian? IDK, I’m pretty sure I had those shoes with a slightly smaller heel.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    The black bars are really distracting. I feel like somebody is going to scan her like a bar code.

  • alyce1213

    This is a WERQ for Miss Kaley, super-cute. She usually misses, shows up in tacky, so this is a giant leap forward for her.
    Her hair looks soft and well-conditioned for a change, and the makeup is lovely and understated.

    • She is another who has better casual style than red carpet style.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Very cute look, but you’re right – it looks like someone just caught her in the parking lot on the way in to the event and made her pose for a quick pic.

  • Someone should implore Reese Witherspoon, Queen of the Parking Lot Photo Op, to give Kaley a quick lesson.

    • decormaven

      Yes, she would automatically get that golden lightining and butterflies dancing on air about her.

      • Imasewsure

        And Reese can pose but still look like she’s not posing unlike the Barbizon School of Modelling look most of these celebutantes tend to strike!!

        • Qitkat

          Haha. This brought back a long-suppressed memory when I met with Barbizon, who were looking for plus-sized women over 40. When it seemed the only criteria was if you could afford the program, I wisely walked away. Never did hear of any success stories from that time.

          • Imasewsure

            So funny…. Beware of life-changing opportunities with a price tag (especially when they are in the Mall)

  • megohd

    I find her totally underwhelming, and I don’t care for her hair here. The dress is okay.

  • RussellH88

    That’s a great little dress. She looks very cute.

    I have no idea where she is, though. Is she going to a swap meet?

  • crash1212

    That is WAY cute…and way weird that she’s in the dirt. Also, I love the length on her as opposed to the model…better proportions.

  • Constant Reader

    Adorable, head to toe. And smiling instead of pouty!

  • Imasewsure

    Kind of cute, kind of meh with hair that is yuck

  • MilaXX

    Parking lot backdrop aside, this is pretty much a werq (not quite a WERQ) for her. Makeup & hair are light and fresh, dress fits well, shoe look comfortable, her size & well suited to the dress, and there is actual jewelry on her.

  • Darva Sutra

    She always reads low-rent/borderline tacky to me, especially when she’s designered-up to the hilt. This everyday girl next door look is working a lot better for her, feels younger and less try-hard. Get outta the dirt, honey (I can feel it creeping int those shoes, yuck).

  • rockin robin

    I don’t know, I think it’s maybe not super flattering? The horizontal lines seem to widen.

  • SublimatedRage

    “…….don’t have to watch her do the monkey-toe grip for life.” You boys sure know how to turn a phrase! Bravo!

  • teensmom99

    I think they are making her earn her way back onto the red carpet after her disasters. The SUV pose reminded me mostly of those “casual shopping for food for 20” photos with Superman which seem to have been taken yesterday or last week, but now that she’s engaged to someone else, I guess they weren’t so recent. So her shameless “dating” photos have put her in publicist hell . . . i.e. dirt backgrounds. A few more outfits like this and the publicists union will let her back on the rc.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Very cute dress but her hair needs shaping and she’s got a good 3″ of dark roots which look unkempt.

  • up with pod people

    The whole dress looks like white noise on TV.

  • kimmeister

    The metallic heels are are interesting touch; unfortunately, they’re just reflecting dirt.

  • This is the best I’ve seen Kaley. She should dress like this more often.

    And thank goodness she ain’t pouting.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    She looks great! I would have preferred hair off the shoulders to better see that contrast detail at the top of the dress, but that’s a minor quibble.

  • Meg

    I think it’s really cute, but something looks unfinished about it. Besides the backdrop! I think maybe it’s the hairdo – or lack of one?

  • d4divine

    It’s better than that horrid purple pants suit she wears in those commercials…holy mutha…HIPS MUCH

  • jw_ny

    Her entire look here is adorable. It seems like Kaley usually gets something wrong with her RC looks…this time it’s just the backdrop. I’ll assume it’s not her fault, although an actress with a bigger ego, and yes..better handlers, would not have stood for that spot! Don’t change Kaley! 😉

  • kim bunchalastnames

    actually, i was thinking that she DOES have a publicist — finally — because i’m suddenly seeing her everywhere, since the high-profile, short-lived dating of the superman. and the dress is adorable on her.

    • demidaemon

      After which, she immediate got engaged to somebody else. Gossip. You’ve got to love it and use it to make conspiracy theories about the sexuality of your favorite (and lesser favorite) celebrities.

  • demidaemon

    I love the dress but hate the shoes. Also, has anyone seen her and her sister on The Voice? Do you find them kind of annoying and intolerable, as I did? Just asking.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    “Monkey-toe grip for life”! LOVE!!!

  • siriuslover

    I agree all around. My eye kept going to the dirt on the lower left, which is a shame because she’s really cute?

  • Samuel Joesph Donovan

    I need the black piping(?) to slope at an angle on the sides after the princess seaming–as it is, it’s making her body shape look flat, like she’s wearing a paper doll’s clothes. There’s just no dimension, and it makes an interesting technique look lazy.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    am I the only one who thinks the lines make her look TOP heavy? I know she has some cleavage, but looks like she used and air pump! I am glad she has pulled back a tad- she was feeling over exposed there for awhile…

  • H2olovngrl

    Very Aniston(y).
