IN or OUT: Christina Aguilera in Maria Lucia Hohan at the 2013 American Music Awards

Posted on November 25, 2013

We’re afraid to criticize anything here because she looks like she’s ready to beat a ho with that scary clutch of hers if they so much as look at her funny.

 

Christina Aguilera attends the 2013 American Music Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California in a Maria Lucia Hohan dress paired with Christian Louboutin heels, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

 

Oh man, that is just … not our taste. We’re trying to be kind here, because this is better than a lot of getups we’ve seen her in. It’s coordinated, unfussy, and it suits her, for the most part. She doesn’t look like a 60-year-old proclaiming to the world that she’s still got it. Those are all plusses. On the other hand, it’s kinda cheap-looking, no? And what’s with the sudden explosion of illusion netting on the red carpet? Everyone indulging their figure-skating fantasies?

Make the call, kittens:

Vote Now!

 

IN! Serving up Old Hollywood drag!

 

OUT! Nominee for “Best Moaner” at the Adult Video Awards

 

 

  

 

 
Jennifer Lawrence’s imaginary dress was voted a firm OUT by all y’all.

    When did Christina Aguilera turn 50? I’ve been out of the loop for far too long.

    • JDreesen

      just be thankful she doesn’t look a day over 50; that’s about as good as it gets with the amount of cake they’ve piled onto her face.

      oh man. now i want cake.

      also, it’s an OUT for me – but just barely, because girl can rock a white dress without going Full Bridal.

      • Lorelei_D

        OUT for me too. Too bad, because agree she looks great in the dress, which is not at all bridal, I like the clutch, and am so happy the nails are not talons. Sadly, the look loses me b/c of the overdone makeup and fried hair.

        • Constant Reader

          OUT for everything you said plus the MInnie Mouse stripper shoes.

    • melanie0866

      Hey! 50 is the new 20!

      Said the 51-year-old…..

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        And backed up by your fellow newly-turned 50 year old BK.

        • Julie Ree

          Right there with you Glamourpuss!

          • Constant Reader

            Me too. Turned 50 six months ago.

      • Call me Bee

        Agreed, says the almost 60 year old….

      • formerlyAnon

        I wish, says the somewhere between 50-and-60-year-old.

        I’ll buy the new 40-ish. The new 35 if your skin hasn’t noticed menopause, yet.

    • altissima

      This exactly. OUT.

    • fiddlecub

      What’s up with the thumbs down? Some kittens were truly bitter today!

    • LadyLuck777

      Agreed. She looks like she starred on Dynasty and never got out of the fashion rut.

    • Spreecord

      Sing it. If there were Jane Fonda, I’d be giving her an in so hard my fingers would break typing it. But dang it, Christina, you’re not old enough to be stealing from Jane Fonda’s closet. OUT.

  • sojourneryouth

    So THAT’s what happened to my white satin sheet. Not nice to steal, Christina!

  • Mary Lauer

    In simply because it is better than her usual. Her face/hair looks VERY 1930s starlet, tho, doesn’t it?

  • Latin Buddy

    LOVE IT. SCREW YA’LL. This is a look that works FOR HER. It is minimalist as was her performance last night. This is a girl that is best friends with overdone tacky.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      also, take a look to her look in the same event last year! She was the double as today!

    • Introspective

      i secretly root for her to win. something in me just wants to see her get her look together cause the bitch has pipes for the gods. yes her makeup went on with a trowel. but still she looks way better than she has in ages.

      so if the benchmark is against her previous rc appearances in the last 2 years, by all means, IN

      • Latin Buddy

        Same here! She is one of the few people (Adela, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson) that can actually sing but even in her 2000s day, she never beat her contemporaries in popularity. Still so shocking that Britney Spears and Kesha’s are popular.

  • Danielle

    SHE’S NOT ORANGE. AUTOMATIC IN.

    • Aidan B

      Amen!

  • Eva_baby

    Kinda cheap looking? A few more inches of hair and a few less inches of skirt and she’s giving Courtney Stodden a run for her money.

  • lunchcoma

    Out. I realize this is not so terrible for her, but she’s been working this Marilyn Monroe schtick for the last decade. The peroxide and bright red lips have never been all that great, and a 32-year-old multimillionaire can do better than sparkly silver prom shoes.

    • Sarah

      Yes, my exact thought! That Marilyn Monroe/Jean Harlow drag is getting old on Xtina.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      She needs to stop with the super-bleached hair. It looking so fried all the time ages her.

  • Jaye Tyler

    Out, because of your description alone.

  • teensmom99

    Can I call it best Hollywood drag and give it an out? Jean Harlow didn’t need the illusion netting on that dress and neither does Christina.

  • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

    OUT. Due to face and hair alone. This had potential. Lose the netting, keep the cutouts, if you must, but the metric ton of shit on her face, plus the fried, trailer park blonde hair is tragic and unexcusable.

    • mshesterp

      Annabelle! The rogue down voter is on the rampage again!!

      Before I even saw TLo’s “Out” commentary, I thought–serious porn star look here. What’s UP with that? The fake boobs, open mouth, ridiculous makeup, fried hair…NO. N-O. no.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        Ah, the Rogue Downvoter, bless their heart.

        Christina is another who has been programmed to convey sexy in stereotypical, juvenile and unimaginative ways.

  • Paigealicious

    *TOTAL* AVN awards!!!

    • Daktari100

      So that’s an “In” vote. RIght? ;)

  • J. Preposterice

    I like it! That’s actually one of the nicest uses of illusion I’ve seen in ages — such a close match, and obviously a fine grade of the stuff. At first I thought it was body shimmer before realizing that with shimmer more of her cleavage would be visible. It’s a dress that works for her body — it emphasizes her hourglassishness, which I like for her — and yes, she looks artificial, but it’s clear she’s not going for the natural look.

    IN.

  • hyperionic

    Out. Her boobs just look weird in this.

  • gabbilevy

    In. Grading on a c(hristina)urve.

    • Jaydar

      hah I made the same comment in my head. That all the In’s are curving this HARD. If it were anyone else O U T . Makeup is spackled on.

  • boweryboy

    This is an IN solely because it’s a personal best for Xtina.

    On anyone else, it would have been an automatic Out. Also, she isn’t orange and crap isn’t dripping down her leg. All pluses. Although her hair is still fried to a crisp.

  • CommentsByKatie

    I think this is an improvement for HER; this is obviously the look she prefers, and even though it isn’t my taste (or the uncles) I think she is doing that particular kind of style very well, especially considering her style past. Love the little bit of Joan Crawford in the eyebrows, especially. In!

  • marlie

    I give this a tepid in. She looks SOOOO much better on the red carpet than she has in the past. The dress fits her well, and as much as I an in general against stupid cut-outs, these actually flatter her figure.

    But the porn star facial expressions are bringing me *thisclose* to changing my vote to an out.

  • JauntyJohn

    In.
    I don’t care for it that much (I shy away from body commentary overall, but that dress makes her boobs look like they are set at different compass points) but it doesn’t deserve a full on out.

  • Kimberly Wilcox

    It looks like its made poorly…all the edges are puckered!

  • Maluca

    Its like I want to love it, but the netting gets in the way of it all. But I’m giving her the IN cause she’s working the “softer” Christina side. And that has to be recognized.

  • frannyprof

    OUT. Cheap.

  • Aidan B

    In, though on a curve. On anyone else this would be a firm OUT from me, but this is a huge improvement for her.

  • kimmeister

    That is probably the best deployment of illusion netting I’ve seen, though. I had to really squint and stare to confirm that it was even there at all over the decolletage.

    Small in, because of the baby steps. She would look so much better if her hair were a few shades darker.

    • raeb23

      i agree…small in. she’s wearing too much blush & the white fabric looks cheap but i like the relatively simple design for her & the illusion netting is doing it’s job; i didn’t notice it at the neckline either!

  • LeelaST

    OUT. A first glance it was okay. But the neckline, the cutouts, the slit, the wonky hem, the puckering fabric…

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Jean Harlow did slinky satin worlds better than this getup. (TeensMom99 – I’d written my entry before I scrolled down — great minds and all that.)

    Tacky, tacky, chip-chip-chip.

  • French_Swede

    It looks like she bought a nice conservative white wedding dress and then grabbed some scissors and cut out the neckline and sides, then ripped the side hem up to her thigh. She’s trying to look sultry (I think) but comes across as though she really had better things to do and resented being there.
    Out.

  • rage_on_the_page

    yeah, looks a bit cheap…but she’s on the right path. For her? IN.

  • Glam Dixie

    Home sewn with a helping of fried hair. OUT

  • uprightcitizen

    OMG. Just noticed there’s illusion netting across the chest as well as the side panels. What is WITH that? From TaySwift, it’s not a surprise that she tried to go all slutty and then chickened out, but when has Christina ever been shy about showing her assets? I kind of dig the hair and makeup, and even wearing white … it’s all Lana Turner in “The Postman Always Rings Twice,” but that dress is just too cheap and tacky. The fact that she’s not as orange as John Boehner is a win, though, right?

  • Little_Olive

    Makeup+shoes+hair = Yup, nominee for Best Moaner. Hell, winner of Best Moaner.
    The dress itself is kinda cheap, but it could have been saved.

  • KateK

    Girl that is not your dress.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    BOOBS!!!!!

    Out.

  • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

    It’s all relative. For Xtina, this is an IN, just because it’s so much better than her usual. But for almost anyone else, NO.

  • Lori

    Out. It looks so cheap that if it wasn’t for the ghastly illusion net the cut-outs would look like ripped seams. Also, the hair is terrible.

  • Zaftiguana

    AVN all the way. I want to reward progress, but what if it’s just progress to a different and slightly less offensive flavor of awfulness?

  • ojosazules

    I think this is a personal best for her. In.

  • Kelly

    Out. The cutouts are bad enough in theory, but in practice, they look unfinished, as if she took a look at the dress as she was leaving home, said, “nope, too staid,” and cut bits out with nail scissors as she rode in the limo. At least the illusion netting is not the color of old support hose (the way Taylor Swift’s is), but still — it’s illusion netting. I do like the Jean Harlowe-esque hair, though.

  • alyce1213

    Well, she’s not orange, her hair’s not too long, nothing’s too tight.
    It’s cheap-looking and the sheer inserts are awful, but I’m going with IN, for improvement.
    Baby steps.

  • Liz

    In, best I’ve seen her look in a long time. Not that it’s a great look, and I hate the shoes, but she needs some positive reinforcement.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    She looks like Lesley Ann Warren in “Victor/Victoria”.

    • alyce1213

      “Ki-i-i-i-i-i-ng”

  • Chelsea

    The length of that dress and those shoes are both terrible. Still a vast improvement for Xtina, though.

  • Lesley

    tacky dress, looks like she hand made it before she hit the carpet but i have to give her props – she came a longggg way from last year and the girl looks fantastic. one thing i’ve noticed… christina, britney – all the early 2000′s pop stars dress like crap, just sayin’

  • AC Simons

    Her roots look good! I kinda love her and her bitchface.

  • Karen Belgrad

    In all fairness, I didn’t even notice there was netting until it was pointed out… So… bravo for matching skin-tone? That being said, one day I would love to see her with a softer (aka Not-Tammy-Faye) eye!

  • snarknado

    1) Out. Those terrifying spiderlashes are sufficient for an out.

    2) I had to create a new user name b/c apparently I was permanently banned for saying [redacted] is looking very thin. I get the no-body-snarking rule, but man, not even one strike? (I know, I know, your website your rules.)

  • ccinnc

    It’s ok. The dress looks like it’s been hanging on a wire hanger for too long – those little outward poinks at the shoulders. And it isn’t very well made. The ripples under her arms got my OCD alarms going off. But she looks ok.

    • alyce1213

      You made me look again. Geez, they didn’t steam/press those out?

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

    Look, she’s aiming for Marilyn but hit Anna-Nicole Smith on a bad day. And yet, I don’t hate it. IN.

  • E2_Remote

    Well…it’s a look. Since this is the first time I’ve ever only mildly disliked her hair, rather than hating it outright, I say IN!

  • Sam Smith

    The dress seems to fit her, so that is an improvement. I really wish she would get a hair and makeup update. She is so pretty, but the platinum blonde and the too much makeup really does her no favors. The illusion netting trend is just too weird.

  • Frankie_Fane

    OUT. It’s like Mamie Van Doren when she wants to be classy.

  • CLoverleaf

    OUT. I’m done with this look for her. The dress is ill-fitting and she is trying So Hard not to breathe.

  • BayTampaBay

    In! I think she looks great because it is such an improvementbover last year’s AMA and a major improvement over the past year as a whole.

  • jw_ny

    in …It’s quite modest for her (no baby heads in sight ;)), and is such an improvement from where she was a year ago, that I’m grading on a curve. Still a lot of room for improvement tho.

    The puckering at the side panel netting and arm pit is awful, and an inch or two more in length of the hem would’ve been an improvement.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

    Her hair is making me hungry for a Nestle’s Crunch.

  • mjude

    DAMN the cutouts. i just have to say OUT

  • conniemd

    In. She looks 10 years younger, is clearly enjoying her new body, her face has only about 1/4 of the make-up. The dress is her style. It has that old Hollywood glam look to it, and her girls aren’t falling out of it.

  • Sarah

    It is sooo….lesser of a thousand evils? But I give it an out. It pains me, because really, she doesn’t look NEARLY as bad, but it really, really looks cheap. Like, Fredericks of Hollywood cheap.

  • MilaXX

    I wanna give her credit for trying here. She pulled back on the makeup and looks a lot better than she usually does, but I don’t like the fit of the dress. It looks saggy in spots. I also dislike the hem length and between the illusion cut outs and high split it’s all too much.
    Attah girl, but no. OUT

  • Kate4queen

    In: surprisingly I like it and she looks comfortable in it.

  • Michael_Jones

    OUT. I thought Adult Video Awards as well when I saw the dress.

  • Imasewsure

    I think Mae West looks great….. can’t vote Xtina out for this but don’t love it either. Mostly the makeup and hair not working for me though… don’t mind tacky… Tepid IN

  • Mona_Visa

    If I only had to judge by pic #5, I would be tempted to vote in. As it stands, however, the majority of the pics and evidence compel me to vote OUT.

  • AmeliaEve

    Out. I really like the idea of this outfit, but a dress this bold and simple can only work when the fit is perfect. Everything seems puckery and twisted up here. And she is not selling it — you can tell she feels a little off. It’s like she is holding her breath. This is not how a star behaves.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    IN. I actually like it- on a bit of a Christina curve, but still. I like the simplicity of the dress, her skin is a color actually found in nature, and the styling is pretty good. I love the earrings and the hair.

  • JulieK

    Out! The dress does look cheap and the hair looks even worse. My god, someone get this girl some hot oil, please.

  • Noah

    I appreciate a Norma Cassidy dress as much as the next gay, but what the actual fuck is going on with the edges of that fabric?

  • sarah jacobs

    She looks like a drag queen here…which would be fine…if she were a drag queen.

  • Mori Rene

    would’ve been flawless but those cut-outs look cheap and tacky.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    OUT.

  • bellafigura1

    Out. The puckering and gapping and wrinkling are so distracting.

  • SouthernGirlRena

    I would have gone with an IN if you just put up the first picture. It is doing great things for her figure and the hair and make-up look good. Up close, you can see the puckering and the netting and the hemline looks too short and her hair looks fried. Sadly and out.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Out. It looks like a movie star costume from Party City.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    In, because she’s trying so hard for old school glam and almost making it.

  • Brittany

    OUT. That illusion neckline is horrible – it gives her a weird alien uniboob. Face and shape is better than usual though.

  • Stephen Bornstein

    OUT…..The dress looked better on Eva Longoria.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    IN she looks healthy and off the sauce. Compared to how she looked last year… yeah homegirl looks slammin!

  • barbarienne

    Maybe if the fit were better. But all that puckering around the illusion-net cutouts makes it look cheap. There’s a fine line between “blonde bombshell” and “overworked hooker” and the cheap looking construction nudged her over it. OUT.

  • Jenna Marie

    I was all ready to give her an “in” as this is so much better than normal. But once “Best Moaner” was added, I can’t unsee it. OUT.

  • Chickadeep

    Serving up aging porn star realness. I am kind of sad for her, because the infotainment media is all “look how skinny she is compared to last year!” and ignoring the fact that her hair is a crunchy, fried mess and the makeup is TRAGIC and terribly aging.

    • Tricia

      “porn star realness.” yep, exactly. her makeup makes her look like a wax figurine of herself.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    This is tacky, but I’ll vote IN. She’s known as a pop star and stage performer, so I think the sparkly accessories can be forgived. This is clearly a “BAM. Look at my weight loss” look and she committed 100%. Plus I think the cut outs are flattering

  • filmcricket

    In. yes it’s tacky as hell, but this is the best she’s looked since the first year after she got married. (Remember that year? Good times.) Grading on a curve, but in.

    • pop_top

      Her “Baby Jane” period? Yes. That was everything.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    OUT. White is not her color (or shade or whatever white is) and the lines of the dress are not flattering, plus she looks like she’s doing a backbend to hold her droopy boobage up. OUT. OUT. OUT.

  • LaSylphide

    Out. What should be retro Hollywood glamour ends up Frederick’s of Hollywood.

  • Nancer

    Out. Cotton candy hair. That’s all I’ve got.

  • Samantha Klein

    I kind of love it. She looks great. IN.

  • jilly_d

    IN. If she had pulled the hair up in a twist and scrubbed about 60% of that makeup off, she would have really had something.

  • Big Bear

    Out. Also, that first photo is hilarious.

  • Nika E

    Out- Her whole look is just played out. it’s not necessarily that she looks bad she just looks like she stepped out of 2000 or something . Update the hair, update the makeup, update the clothes… it’s kind of just all been there done that.

  • poggi

    While she looks better than she usually,does she’s done this Jean Harlow in overdrive thing so long that I am bored. Change it up. Got to a blonde hair color observed in nature. Wear lip gloss and makeup you can see your skin through. Opt to reveal one body part instead of all of them. OUT.

  • Nika E

    you know how to work this dress and look like a million freaking bucks? Helen Mirren.

  • Tatiana Luján

    the illusion netting panels are completely unnecessary, cheapen the dress and wrinkle the fit. But in, because this is not horrible and that’s saying much about an outfit she’s wearing.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    I feel like 30′s glamor is a good direction for her to go but this misses the mark. Still – IN for the toned down (!) fake tan and makeup, and for wearing clothing that actually fits.

  • ThesisMonkey

    I was very close to declaring this in, simply because if she insists on this type of look this is not half-bad for her. But dear god, the illusion netting. have to go with OUT.

  • melanie0866

    IN, just because it’s such an improvement for her.

  • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

    Serving the drag alright. ‘Old Hollywood’ is too kind.

  • beebee10

    I think your “out” description says it best, but for Xtina, this is an IN.

  • lrhoff

    You know, I give this a very soft “in”, due to the fact it is such a HUGE improvement. She’s lost some weight and is trying to get her old groove back. She’s heading in the right direction, hopefully, so I’ll offer positive reinforcement to that end.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    You know what, as much as I generally think she’s tacky and awful, I don’t mind this. I mean, it’s a vast improvement over most of her drag.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Oh I think this is a tough one. She’s not orange, or covered in glitter, so those are the wins here. But it’s just not working, it’s all so washed out and boring. OUT it is.

  • Crystal

    Her head looks GREAT and for Christina this is straight up minimalist and elegant. IN IN IN.

  • OrigamiRose

    Giving it an IN only because in spite of the cheap-looking dress, she looks incredible.

  • crash1212

    OUT. outoutout. The cotton-candy hair has got to go. The heavy makeup is not flattering. The illusion netting craze MUST die. Followed closely by cut-outs. Love the shoes and the clutch.

  • subwaycars

    In. The dress is hideous but she’s rocking it so hard I can’t even care.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Ummmm…out. BUT at least her illusion netting is harder to spot than others. BUT, her hair looks DREADFUL and she looks like she costs $15 on the street…if that.

  • Slanted & Enchanted

    The silhouette and immediate impact are both nice, but I’m going to have to go with OUT. The fabric seems kind of cheap, no? It seems like the edges should be crisper than they are.

    Also, is it just me, or does her face look dramatically different each year? I think I’d have a hard time picking her out of a line up if she ever changed her hair.

  • Kent Roby

    This is definitely Cher, Cher Horowitz, like a total Monet of a dress.

  • Kimmu

    I legitimately thought this was a drag queen as Christina Aguilera. Not actually Christina Aguilera.

  • Leah Elzinga

    Out. I kind of hate this dress. I actually like it in theory, but MAN that is some wonky construction, no? Like is there a single edge that seems to be lying properly?? That said, IF it was made properly, with a smooth but not tight ponytail, and a more subtle lip, this could’ve worked.

  • Janet B

    Out.
    No need to explain myself, right?

  • nannypoo

    I wonder how she is keeping her substantial boobs up at that relatively perky angle with no visible support. I can’t do it with an underwire bra, so what’s the secret? Seriously, I’m asking.

    I think, with consideration for who she is and how bad she has the potential to look, that she looks great here. Sure the dress is tacky, and sure her hair looks overbleached, and sure she looks like a drag queen, but she also looks beautiful in that Jayne Mansfield va-va-voom way that only an overdone slutty-looking blond can look. She gets a big IN from me.

    • martha

      Those substantial boobs are silicone. They probably don’t ever move.

  • MichelleRafter

    It’s one slit too many; she didn’t need the plunging neckline, cutout waist and slit skirt; andy one or two of the three would have been enough. But agree on the fabric: cheap looking. But love the hair and face.

  • Jangle57

    While it certainly shows off her admirable figure, I just think the dress looks cheap and for the reason alone: OUT

  • Akemi

    She looks waaaay older than she is, especially in that first photo.

    But mostly, she looks like she is getting ready to star in a remake of Mommy Dearest.

  • jjfg

    That hair is a fire hazard. As for the rest of it – ouch. I mean, out.

  • susan6

    Old Hollywood Drag….as in Old Hollywood as performed by a Drag Queen. Her bod is slammin’, the dress is flattering….but everything above the neck is a disaster. She would be beautiful if she toned down the slap. That much make up actually tips the dress over into “cheap” territory. With less make up and the right stylist this could have been a stunning look. I’ll give her an IN because it was so close, but girl: ease up on the makeup!!!!

  • BrooklynBomber

    OUT! Nominee for “Best Moaner” at the Adult Video Awards

    ^^^ That’s it, exactly.

    I just saw her in this video “Say Something.” Why can’t she dress and be styled like that when she’s doing the RC?? She looks gorgeous.

  • http://piblet.tumblr.com/ Anastasia

    This is the best illusion netting I’ve seen ! Compare this to T-Swift’s golden get up and how Christina looked LAST year, and IN, IN, IN darlings.

  • d4divine

    …at least her illusion netting matches her skin tone…that’s all I got

  • Aaminah Khan

    In, but I really wish she’d tone down the hair and makeup.

  • MzzPants

    In. Because I love drag.

  • gksp

    OUT. She’s lovely – this look is not

  • Sunshine16

    You’ve gotta give her the IN simply for having yanked out the horrible hair extensions & being a lot less orange…don’t you?

  • webslice33

    IN!

  • Michelle Wilson

    Those were exactly my thoughts. The dress looks so CHEAP. The seems are kinda wavy and the fabric too thin and the whole thing a bit too short. Looks like she made it herself. Also hair is still too bleached and poorly styled and waaaay too much makeup. OUT.

  • StarburstLady

    It is so much better than anything she’s been seen in lately, in that it actually fits her. But it’s made me realize whose style vibe she’s been channeling for the past couple years– and it’s Dolly Parton. Now, this is on the classier side for a Dolly Parton look, so I give her an IN. But man, that hair needs a break from the bleaching, and those shoes…

  • Tapetum

    Out – for the very simple reason that she doesn’t look like she feels fabulous.

  • flamingoNW

    Well, I’m going to have to give her an IN just because for once it fits her and it’s not entirely hideous.

  • Tracy_Flick

    I think it’s glamorous from the neck down. The hair and makeup – oy.

  • MsKitty

    OUT on so many levels. Seriously, I don’t even know where to start.

  • Rhonda Shore

    OUT!!! TACK-o-RAMA!!!

  • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

    It’s very Neely O’Hara circa the third comeback, so I kind of like it. Plus, as already mentioned, she’s not orange. So… reluctant in.

  • Call me Bee

    It is a bit drag-ish for me, but it makes her look 7 feet tall and that’s always an IN. (Love the clutch, BTW. A glam weapon.)

  • SophieCollier

    Are we sure that’s the real Christina and not a drag impersonator? Because gaddang, that’s awfully draggy looking makeup.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    IN. Va Va VOOM.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Why does she continue to look so old? If Helen Mirren wore this next to her, I’d swear the Queen were younger.

    OUT.

  • jmorino08

    OUT! Give it to Jenna Jamison. She’s probably looking for handouts.

  • OpinionatedMtnGirl

    OUT – AVN awards for sure

  • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

    It’s not horrible, which is a huge step up for Christina. I grade on a curve, but it’s not THAT curvy.

    OUT.

  • almondemy

    out. she looks like courtney stodden’s younger sister.

  • ashtangajunkie

    OUT. That’s too much makeup for ten faces, let alone one.

  • Judy_J

    If cheap and tacky is what she was after, then it’s IN. But since I don’t think she was aiming for that, I’m saying OUT.

  • mrspotts66

    out. do.not.like.

  • Myra Amler

    Out. Hire a team of stylists, darling.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Leslie Anne Warren in Victor/ Victoria for the win!!!

  • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

    Out. And I hope she has her chiropractor on speed dial after a full night of arching her back like that.

  • Milos Mom

    That double stick tape is barely holding on… Agreed that is looks chincy and poorly constructed with those ripples.

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    Picture 7: “Suddenly, the evil Snow Queen spotted her rival. Shit was about to get real.”

  • imakeart

    Flaunt those perky breasts while you have them. Gravity is a bitch.

  • unbornfawn

    She looks better here than I have seen her in quite some time. I was leaning towards an IN until I got to the side cut-outs. OUT.

  • Kirsty

    Put down the diazepam, dear.

  • Pterodactyl111

    In. What the hell.

  • Kathy

    OUT. First, her head: I’d like to see some closer-to-natural hair color on her. Also, gurl, snatch those caterpillars off of your eyelids! Second: Although her body’s slammin’; that dress isn’t.

  • trisker

    Lots of issues — but still IN.

  • formerlyAnon

    In. Even though she looks like Mature Hollywood Glamour Barbie.

    Because this is sooo much better than so many of her ensembles.

  • LJCdoc

    Out. I refuse to grade her on a curve. True, it’s better than some things she’s worn, but it’s still not good.

  • CatherineRhodes

    OUT. She’s going for a Harlow look, but the problem is that old Hollywood glamor was really, well, glamorous — not trashy. (Did I miss a beat — did she used to be much heavier?)

    • quiltrx

      Oh honey, count yourself VERY lucky that you missed that phase! Google “Christina Aguilera weight” and you’ll have no trouble seeing. I think that purple ombre nightmare was her ‘bottom’ here on TLo.

  • sunflower

    I’m voting it IN, but it’s an in for her, for others this would be way way out

  • Danielle West

    Out. Total porn star.

  • anneland

    Out. Stripper shoes. Too much boob. Fried hair.

  • bailey

    out. adult video awards.

  • deelup

    She needs to have those tits taken out and just start over.

  • Micaela Cannon

    IN with the understanding that this would be OUT on so many other people, but she gets props for looking the best she looks. She’s pulling an Aniston.

  • SierraDelta

    Out! The exposed edges are all pucker-y. And the toes on her left foot look like they’re trying to make a run for it in opposite directions.

  • bassfemme

    OK, when I see a giant gusset -shaped hole at the waist, I just think she needed a dart let out. I see that she’s reed thin, but my sewing eye sees an unfinished dress.

  • SatelliteAlice

    Out because as you said it looks cheap and also girl needs to wear a bra. As a fellow lady with large boobs, you have to give them direction. If you don’t you get the problem we see here where they go in to completely opposite directions which is really unflattering.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    If the side slit were not so high,I’d consider a tentative In. The makeup is pretty good, and this is the best she’s looked in a long time, but that slit with the cutouts is killing me.

  • wiggligirl

    The messy edges of the cut-outs really bother me, so it’s an out in my book. I appreciate her freshly bleached roots, though!

  • SusannaGA

    Her figure looks great in this dress (although I agree with SatelliteAlice that a bra would have been a fine idea) — but it’s an out just the same.

  • Jake Donohoe

    From the neck up I think she looks like the good version of Christina, but from the neck down she’s kinda working the Coco Austin look. There has to be a way for divas to look more interesting than Celine and less interesting than Nikki Minaj.

  • RedRaven617

    Sorry, I think she looks like a drag queen.

    • Daktari100

      Ain’t no shame in looking like a drag queen, honey. No need to apologize.

  • William Thill

    I think Jenna Jameson looks terrific. Ready to win best new Starlet. OUT.

  • River

    I…don’t hate it? I wish the material were a little less cheap looking but other than that I kind of think she looks amazing.

  • CarrieBaby

    Yeah the dress material looks kinda cheap but this dress is giving me throwback vibes to when she was going through her pin up girl phase. I hope she goes back to that style but with better looking dresses

  • quiltrx

    OUT…she really has the ‘frozen face’ all of a sudden, doesn’t she? She looks kind of miserable and won’t close her mouth. And the dress looks cheap.

  • MannahattaMamma

    it looks like it’s too small and ripped along the sides when she moved her arms. zoiks.

  • NOLA_gal

    Out. She looks like an outcast from RPDR. And that white blonde hair stinks.

  • amber.

    in but whatever

  • Lily-Rygh

    She’s not orange, she doesn’t look blasted, her hair looks reasonably conditioned, and her make-up (that pesky make-up gun is still set to “whore,” I see) is reasonably applied — for her. This has to be an IN, if for no other reason than to encourage her down this path.

  • lesmaha

    In.

  • Reality TV Casting

    in

  • http://www.momforless.com Crystal

    OUT.

  • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

    OUT,because the makeup is giving her serious “Evil Queen from Snow White”-face.

  • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

    one word, three letters: O_L_D. girl, you aren’t but this look is. like a gold digger out spending late hubby’s millions on diamonds. out fer shurr.

  • GTrain

    way way OUT. It looks chip.

  • Claudia

    Its all too white – blindingly white. And I abhor the open mouth thing.

  • Daktari100

    She’s Studio 54 ready! And that kind of retro glamour gives me life. In!

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    While I agree she actually manifests both the In and Out descriptions (good job, guys!)’ I’m giving her an IN! She can stop dieting for a while too. She’s getting too skinny. Love the clutch!

  • Sam Erin

    If you think back to the 2012 AMAs…. this is in an IN for her.

  • purpleprose78

    I love it. So IN (for her. )

  • sweet_potato

    yikes.

  • Sara__B

    IN. Because she’s working HER look better than usual. (I don’t think in and out work for her. I keep imagining how wonderful she’d look with healthy hair, less make-up, and prettier gowns, but she’s never going to do that. THIS is the way she likes to look.)

  • prettybigkitty

    Yeah. . .no.

  • Diego!

    OUT. Who TF is making her make up and hair? They deserve to be sent to jail. It’s disgusting!

  • Diego!

    I forgot to add, she is serving Dinasty’s Linda Evans!

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    OUT! “Best Moaner” had me snorting in my coffee.

  • Shawn EH

    In. But I like the Adult Video Awards.

  • Nan

    Out. She’s a gorgeous woman with a slamming body. She can do so much better than a dress that looks like something poorly rendered by a n00b player in xBox 360′s latest “Project Runway” release.

  • rbk

    those pumps bring it to a whole new level of adult film star. The dress looks cheap. I say OUT. body looks great, however.

  • Sara Hottman

    Figure skater with an overly aggressive ooh-la-la face. OUT.

  • BPlease

    Out. Mamie Van Doren would rock this, though, because she has a lighter touch and doesn’t have that ridiculously nasty ‘I’ll cut you!’ vibe that saturates Christina’s public persona.

  • MandyM

    Agreed. She looks like a cheap Marilyn Monroe impersonator. OUT

  • H2olovngrl

    How the hell does House of HOHAN keep getting celebrities to wear their ugly, cheap ass looking dresses?!

  • bellafigura1

    All the down-voting in this thread is ridic! Cope!

  • guyfromhoboken

    considering she used to dress like a 1970′s Atlantic City hooker, we should be pleased she moved up to Las Vegas and the 1980s.

  • JimMcC

    In FOR HER. We can grade on a curve here, yes?

  • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

    OUT (Catching up, sorry I’m late). Except for those aforementioned Adult Video Awards.

  • Judih1

    Out, Out, Out

  • http://www.fatladysings.us/ TFLS

    At least her boobs look natural – unlike Naya Rivera, who looks like she taped two coffee cups to her chest (not to mention the whole Morticia Addams thing she had going). I kinda like what Ms. Agulilera’s wearing – it suits her…though I will admit it looks like she’s auditioning for some porn flick.

  • murt

    The dress does look cheap………. I wonder why she loves the pancake makeup so much.

  • mr

    Dynasty

  • twilightgirlportland.com

    I think if the makeup was softer and hair not so “done” it would look better. Too much of everything. Like the dress though.

  • kerryev

    It’s not just the dress–down to the crazy bleach job and glitter eyeshadow, whole thing says adult film star.
