I can’t imagine the human that this would look good on.
Maybe Iman? She did that pink fluffy one that one time. Then again, it’s debatable as to whether Iman is human.
Fan Bingbing with a played down updo, bold dark lip and a thin black belt
Big Bird at a wedding.
Now all I can picture is everyone around her asking for her to pass them a tissue all night.
I don’t know if it’s the lighting, but the runway version looks a light brighter and cleaner whereas Rita’s version looks kinda dingy.
I think the color is the least of the problems.
This looks like a grade school art project gone wrong.
Tissue box cozy dress?!?!
Hahahahaha she thought putting a belt on it would give it shape ahahahahahaha.
I don’t think putting on a girdle on top would give it shape.
It’s preposterous, but I think it works as well on her as it could on anyone. And she looks awfully happy in her ball of fluff.
Can we reassign “Of course” to Marchesa since Lea seems to have moved on from her T&A phase? Because OF COURSE that’s Marchesa!
I don’t think they’re even trying anymore. They’re just embracing their flat-out ridiculousness.
Seriously. Put DOWN the crack pipe, Georgina!
I just keep looking at her extraordinarily black eyebrows.
I don’t get the big black eyebrows. Or the too-light candy pink lipstick for that matter.
I think this is the worse makeup I’ve seen on her.
My cat did this to the last toilet paper roll in the house! I never thought of using it as a dress. Hmmmm….
It’s refreshing she’s not wearing her go-to horrid red lipstick. That is all.
Rita, you’ve been Marchesa’d. I’m so sorry, dear.
That could be a culinary term….soaked in buttermilk, rolled in seasoned flour and Marchesa’d!
Annabelle & Ginny: Dipped in a big pile of random foofaraw. Whatever sticks, stays.
THIS – When I think Marchesa, I think foofrawy, frippery and too too much. It is now a verb. I have made it so.
It’s going in the OED as we speak.
Maybe it could be used for any food that’s covered in coconut.
Sounds like a Paula Deen recipe.
Only if you use white flour.
And fry it in mass quantities of butter.
that’s it, in a nutshell…despite that, i think she looks pretty. i like her coloring a lot and feel like it saves her from what could sink others. Also, she looks like she thinks it’s all working and that’s a plus.
And this is why it is “the beautiful Georgina Chapman” on PRAS, not the talented Georgina Chapman.
it is funny how they always say that! From host to host…
You’ve fallen for another of their classic pranks, Bazinga!
Is this a parody of Marchesa? I think someone’s pranking us.
I’m not on the Marchesa hate wagon but this is getting me close.
It looks like the art kids make in elem. school where you glue tissue paper to a fake tree. No bueno!
“OMG!!! Yessssss! I want to wear the dress that looks like tissue paper!!!” Said no one ever.
Halloween was last week dear.
It reminds me of the homecoming floats we made in high school. All those tissue paper rosettes!
Also those tissue paper flowers we made in elementary school.
Wow – nothing is working here. The dress is silly. The make up is HORRIBLE!! Everything is working to f up her eyes, her skin tone, her smile, her teeth. The nail bracelet is so random. Does not go here at all.
“Rita Ora in Marchesa” is exactly what I expected.
WERQ-ing that Cartier nail bracelet tho.
Peeling birch tree realness. Nay, missy, nay.
The one thing Marchesa and Stella McCartney have in common is the disdain they seem to invoke from the bitter kittens. Not without good reason.
Sorry to disagree, but there are plenty of good reasons for our disdain.
“Not without good reason” – means exactly that.
Sorry. Read too fast; didn’t see the not.
and I think she at least scores points for wearing something such as this to a teen awards venue!
Cuz kids today love toilet paper!
Those bear commercials carry subliminal messages.
the frilly, juvenile nature of the dress is what I was referring to
Frilly, you’ve got that right! So frilly, my toddler rhumba pants couldn’t have held a candle to that dress.
It’s… a dress made out of… used Kleenex? There is no woman on Earth who would look good in this dress.
Someone should have stepped away from the eyebrow pencil. I like a strong brow as much as anyone, but those are disturbingly akin to the fake fuzzy mustache I got my 7 year old to complete his cowboy costume this Halloween.
Just how many dollar stores did she have to clean out for those little bags of cheap faux flowers?
Tarred and feathered. Run out of town on a pole.
This is off topic, but is anyone else pissing themselves with anticipation of TLos miss universe costume coverage?
The captions always reduce me to tears. Can’t wait.
Did anyone else participate in making floats for homecoming parade? This has that chicken-wire-stuffed-with-napkins vibe.
I think it might have been closer to working had her makeup been better. The heavy black and white eye shadow and nude lip look like she’s got a mask on (like those cartoon bandit masks).
Homecoming chicken wire with tissues / napkins — exactly. And those eyebrows are frightening. Like a cartoon villain.
All I see are toilet paper carnations for parade floats.
Anyone remember “The Chicken Lady” from Kids In The Hall?
Actually I think this could have been fun, but the slit ruined it. If you’re going to be a stick of cotton candy for halloween you don’t need a peak of the weird cardboard cone thing underneath.
“Your inspiration for this challenge is, hairy butts.”
“Your inspiration for this challenge is, cold and flu season.”
You just know that your critique would be “slutty CVS disco pharmacist on a Nyquil binge”.
I know what happened. Georgina was laying in her bubble bath and looking at herself in the morning. She is the “beautiful Georgina Chapman” after all. She thought I look fabulous! I must design a dress that looks exactly like this. I think she did an excellent job.
Toilet paper bride.
Look at your doggies! Swoon!
Thank you! They are precious, if I do say so myself.
Against her hair, dress and lipstick her teeth looked corn yellow. I am sure they are not really that yellow but whoa, that smile looks like butter.
I’m trying to find a delicate way of saying this, and having no luck. She’s really beautiful, but reeks of trash rather than class. I don’t know if that’s part of her manufactured professional image, or what the deal is. Sigh.
this is a mess
This dress looks like the garbage dump challenge on PR, before anyone started sewing.
Dunno if the lighting is really bad or her makeup person had too much Red Bull, but her face looks strange here, almost yellow including the teeth. Those teeth usually are perfectly fine and white, so I suspect the lighting or camera might be the culprit.
However… the lighting isn’t responsible for the hiddy dress. The beeeaaauuutiful Georgina Chapman and her designing partner have that honor. As an aside…. why does Georgina always get the TV gigs and publicity and not Keren?
She’s not the “beautiful” Georgina Chapman. Also, she isn’t blowing the boss.
Was that out of line? You guys tell me.
Merely tiptoeing up to the line and wiggling a toe above it?
She’s wearing a dress made of loofahs in the shape of a loofah. How original. How ugly.
She just looks so pleased to be dressed like a toilet paper dolly. Hair and makeup look lovely, but honey that is strictly an editorial dress.
Well, if she must wear that dress, at least she picked the right venue.
The dress is ridiculous, the makeup is AWFUL. Go home girl
What the fuck is this supposed to be, exactly? This is batshit, even for Marchesa. Why is she wearing it?
All I can see is a big pile of used tissues…
Sometimes, you just want to wear a silly dress. OTOH, her hair and her eyebrows look like they don’t belong to the same person.
It is a very silly, over done dress. She’s a pop singer at some BBC Teen radio awards. Everything would have been well if she’d had silly, over-done hair, not “no hair stylist showed so I did it myself” hair.
she could be a foot model…
Big bird. But I’m sure someone has already said that.
Wow, she looks even more stupid than she usually does.
Mentioning this only because Georgina is a PRAS judge, but the runway version looks a bit avant garde, no?
It’s like she’s the reincarnation of Phyllis Diller, especially where the make up is concerned. I don’t want to badmouth Phyllis Diller, as she had her own style and the woman was funny. But I don’t think it’s a flattering look for a very young woman.
Oh God, I’m so happy she got her roots touched up.
Anything Marchesa makes me itch. Overwrought fluff.
