Julia Roberts in Givenchy at the “August: Osage County” LA Premiere

Posted on December 17, 2013

What the ever-loving fuck?


Julia Roberts attends the “August: Osage County” Los Angeles Premiere held at Regal Cinemas in Los Angeles, California in a Givenchy ensemble accessorized with a Pomellato ring.

Here’s us, scrolling down:

“Well, the hair’s kind of yoga-class, but her face looks pretty. Not sure about that lip color, though. Kinda digging the idea of her in a ladytux, but that collar just looks weird. She should probably button the JESUS MARY AND OPRAH. What is THAT?!? What are THOSE?!?”

We thought she was wearing a ladytux, not some horrifying ladytux/Little Black Dress hybrid that God and nature did not intend. That is possibly the ugliest skirt we’ve ever seen. And wasn’t it thoughtful of her to pair it with some really ugly shoes?

The thing about her is, she always looks annoyed and defensive on the red carpet, like she knows her outfit’s got problems. We’re always left wondering why she left the house wearing it, then. You’re Julia Fucking Roberts. You’ve got options.

    For the girl whose mother would not let her wear a tux to the prom.
    PS- the ring should be on my finger right now.

  • PastryGoddess

    She looks like smacked ass

    When kooky quirky Juliette Lewis looks better than you Ms. America’s Sweetheart Movie Star. It’s time to redefine some priorities.

    • tereliz

      Mind-boggling. It’s like she’s been purposely trying to dress down when Abigail and Juliette are bringing it like they’re in a movie with Julia Roberts. As if to show them that it’s not a big deal for her to be in a movie with the likes of them. Sorry, my irrational hatred is showing. 🙂

  • Diego!

    Oh Jeeze… I can’t even either… Julia dear, fire all your team RIGHT NOW!

  • filmcricket

    Adding fuel to the pregnancy rumour fire.

    Much like Christina Hendricks should just hire Janie Bryant to dress her, I always feel like La Roberts should hire the guy who did the costumes for Ocean’s 11. She never looked more glam than in that movie.

    • Kayceed

      I remember her beautiful clothes in that movie, and also her complete inability to walk gracefully in heels. I always thought she was one of those celebrities who would benefit from dance lessons, just to gain some body awareness.

      • maritacov

        I danced for 16 years. I can tap my ass off in heels but ask me to walk a straight line and I stumble around like I’m half drunk.

      • GillianHolroyd

        For me anyway, that scene was a complete needle-scratch. Not sure why the director didn’t block it differently.

    • H2olovngrl

      Spot on.

      • DebbieLovesShoes


  • amf0001

    and it makes her legs look pasty and weird… def not a look for her or indeed anyone

  • Emily Dagger

    This is the face of a woman who has to go to all the premieres even though she knows she hasn’t got a chance against Lupita Nyong’o.

    (also, I can’t pretend to have ever been a fan, but when was the last time her face relaxed out of “seriously annoyed with a generous portion of crazy eye”? Can it even work other expressions anymore?)

    • CakesOnAPlane

      Seriously. I keep looking at the second picture and cracking up. THE EYES. They will haunt my dreams.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yes. Her eyes have had something done and I hope it’s still settling, because if not, it’s the one part of her face that looks off.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I. Can’t. Even. No. Hell. To. The. NO.

  • Blair Sylvester

    options yes, taste apparently not

  • Anna_Cecilia

    Julia would like you to know that the special this evening is an organic beef tenderloin, accompanied by roasted root vegetables and a potato confit.

    • kimmeister

      Mad props for your attention to detailed description!

    • demidaemon

      That sounds delicious. However, I may not trust it if this is the only waitress’ uniform.

  • Courtenay P

    gurl no.

  • Kimbolina

    I do not understand what is going on here…

    • Isabel

      Heard a rumor that she’s pregnant. Maybe she doesn’t want to announce it, thence this outfit…

  • This was definitely the moment to deploy leather bootaloons, with the jacket buttoned.

    I dream of being allowed to play Supermarket Sweep through the Pomellato store, but that ring would not be one of my top picks.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      I want to name a pet Bootaloons just so I can wander my neighborhood bellowing this at the top of my lungs. Come to think of it, I don’t need a pet to do that, do I?

      • In the effort not to laugh out loud at that, I’m currently in spasms like a cat bringing up a hairball.

        • Ginny Ellsworth

          My goal was never to cause you pain! But the visual image is just too good not to share with like minded fashionistas.

  • Sarah

    I like her ring. That is ALL I like in this pic. (Including the wearer).

  • nannypoo

    I really think she should just give up and wear some sort of standard sheath dress with a simple shoe every time she makes an appearance. She has no gift at all for dressing attractively. And a toe ring? For god’s sake.

    • kimmeister

      I hadn’t even noticed the toe ring, but it sure seems awkwardly placed.

    • sojourneryouth

      That’s actually a great idea. A clean, simple canvas for her constant Bitchy Resting Face.

  • mmebam

    The ONLY thing going for her is that jacket. Lord, go home and start over…

  • StellaZafella

    When you’re an ‘A’ list film star and you hit the red carpet, you have to be ready to take the heat for how you look….
    I hope this crap fest is made of something non-flammable.

    • PastryGoddess


  • MilaXX

    I think this look could work on someone else. This just doesn’t feel like her at all. No hope for the shoes though.

  • schadenfreudelicious


  • Janet B

    I don’t mind off the beaten path, but she has to own it not grimace through it.

    I wonder what she’d really like to wear.

    • tereliz

      A purple strapless Monique Lhuillier. And a tiara. Bitches.

  • SugarSnap108

    Wow. What a pile of bad decisions.

  • gigi kennedy

    is the shirt attached to the skirt??? oh geez this is perplexing!

  • alyce1213

    It looks like she just pulled stuff off the Givenchy rack and made herself an “ensemble.”
    I’m not even going to mention that there’s makeup on the collar of her shirt because that would be gross.

    • Sarah

      I sure would! Hence we avert our eyes, even though we totally scrolled back up to look at it.

      • sweetlilvoice

        Yeah, I just did, I missed that the first time.

  • H2olovngrl

    Oh Julia, Juliette is kicking your ass on this red carpet. (you know, as if there are score cards at the end with grades on them. There are, right? No? There should be!)

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Juliette also looked as if she was actually enjoying herself, which makes a big difference.

  • Clueless_Jock

    Quelle horreur.

  • H2olovngrl

    I just read that Benedict Cumberbatch is in this movie playing someone named “Little Charles Aiken”. I think I may need to go see this one after all!

  • TAGinMO

    I assume the crazy-eyes appeared the moment she felt the need to shoot daggers out of them–i.e., when Juliette Lewis entered her field of vision wearing that stunning purple Lhullier with the almost-tiara.

    Playing this scenario out in my head makes me smile.

    • H2olovngrl

      That makes us all smile.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      I’m in.

  • PeaceBang

    This was such traumatic scroll-down fug that it sent me back to the kitchen for another cup of coffee. Cannot cope. With that skirt. Trying to envision a pair of shoes that might somehow redeem the skirt? No can do.

    • hunt3002

      Seriously. I was like it’s not that bad, just a bit Victor/Victoria. Then I scrolled. MY EYES.

  • crash1212

    No shoe should show that much toe. Ever. This is truly a scroll down fug. I love a lady-tux and this could’ve been excellent…but she decided to mess with us instead. Too bad.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    If ladystars want to go a tux, I’d like to see them go the Marlene Diertrich way-full on tux, or do the tux jacket with a long skirt slit on the side, rather than this WTF skirt thing. Julia so rarely looks comfortable on the RC.

  • Jessica Rose

    i refuse to believe that, that is Julia Roberts. I wont hear of it. It’s an impersonator, for the love of god, please tell that its a fake! She looks so hot in suits why did she create this monstrosity?!

  • decormaven

    Has this look really been on the runway in a previous Givenchy collection? Pray tell, which year was it? This is a prank, yes?

  • Yolanda13

    We’ve just been punked!

  • SeaKat Stabler

    Remember those flip books that were split into thirds so you could swap heads/torsos/bottoms?

    Pretty sure that’s what happened here.

    Near as I can figure the equation is:

    Stressed-out Carpool Mom head + Third-seat Cello in the Civic Orchestra torso + Formal Loin Cloth and Aunt Maggie’s bunion-friendly sandals.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    This would look better if the jacket was tailored to fit impeccably and she wore a fun pair of shoes

  • tallgirl1204

    Victor/Victoria on the top, Pretty Woman on the bottom. Wouldn’t be a choice I would recommend…

  • Carleenml

    Is it a skirt? Or is it a dress. I want to see the runway version. Those Charlton Heston shoes, mother of god.

  • Kent Roby

    It’s like she tried REALLY hard to make it look like she didn’t try at all. I expect to see her in jeggings and a poncho next.

  • lynnlee

    I like her ring.

  • annabelle archer

    Julia Roberts, ladies and gentlemen, Oscar winning Magician.

  • rebeemoon

    The stare . . . it burns.

  • ovarB

    Eat. Pray. And go back and slap your stylist!!!

  • padma sallah

    SWEET JESUS. What is this?

  • Cathy S

    I was so excited by the cute tux until I got to the skirt. Sigh.

  • queeniethebold

    i’m aghast at how horrendous she looks.

  • Miranda

    why does she look shocked? Does botox do that?

  • I think if you have holes in your earlobes you have an obligation to fill them with earrings, at least while in public. And if you wear the top half of a tux, you are obliged to wear the bottom half too (unless you are Judy Garland).

  • Laura Renee

    This was going to be SO HOT (lip color aside, yeah) and then I made the unfortunate mistake of scrolling down.

  • cmb92191

    Did tap class just let out? Or was she watching Victor/Victoria and felt inspired? Color me confused

  • Coleen

    She’s not smiling because she saw Juliette’s dress. You KNOW she is pissed.

  • ashtangajunkie

    This is delightful. So laughably, beautifully bad.

  • Nika E

    Stank. Stank outfit. Stank hair. Stank face.

  • bellafigura1

    Straight hem on the skirt and booties and I’m totally down with this. I think she looks great, and I like the attitude very much.

  • Klee

    oh honey, no. You got the money for a top stylist. Hire one.

  • kimmeister

    I’m not against the idea of a tux jacket paired with a skirt, but definitely not a skirt that has a shirt hem. Actually, no skirts should have shirt hem, they’re just stupid.

    The ring is awesome, but does not belong with a black-and-white outfit.

  • Imasewsure

    I like the ugly shoes but definitely not with this WTF look… she has “interesting” style choices, that is for sure

  • Tuneful54

    I couldn’t care less about her nor what she wears, as long as she doesn’t open her yap and start with that New Age psychobabble.

    I am also so over the bare-leg craze, especially in winter.

  • HM3

    This “ensemble” is the work of Satan.
    Btw, did you guys choose to name it an “ensemble,” or is that a description taken from your source? Either way, it makes me chuckle. 🙂

  • Cheryl

    Nope, nope, nope. I love the menswear look, but this is such a lame ass, weak, attempt. If you are going to do a tux, do a tux, not this stupid skirt thing.

  • KT

    This is really too bad, it could have been awesome if done right, but yes that skirt and those AWFUL shoes are killing the look. Also the shirt looks a little too cater-waiter and I don’t understand what’s happening with the collar. I think she could totally work a sassy menswear look though — too bad she doesn’t have the money/power/means to do so… OH WAIT.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    This is just too weird.

  • Danielle

    OH DEAR.

  • Sue_Asponte

    I’m also confused why Givenchy told her this would be a good idea. Or why Givenchy created it in the first place. The top half, though, is awesome.

  • Trickytrisha

    I’m pretty sure Ms. Julia went all hissy fit when she realized she was outdone by Ms. Juliette, ’cause she’s looking mighty miffed here. There’s a whole gaggle of designers that have perpetrated some fashion flops this year; Givenchy just gave Julia her latest one, including that rather disgusting pair of shoes.

  • snarkykitten

    She looks like she’s wearing her boyfriend’s tux for sexytime purposes

    • demidaemon

      If this is for sexytimes purposes, she is going to flat out of luck.

  • Brittany Knupper

    She’s just running from her shift as Maitre D and forgot her pants so she improvised with a table cloth. The only logical conclusion.

  • marlie

    Those shoes are AWFUL. HORRENDOUS. If the skirt part didn’t have that weird hem, and was just a straight across pencil skirt, I could get on board with the dress. And her makeup does look pretty.

    • altalinda

      Amen. A pencil skirt and maybe a gorgeous closed-toe pump and this could be good.

  • MissDelaware

    Between that coat and this outfit, is it any wonder there are pregnancy rumors swirling around out there?

  • QOTD: ” You’re Julia Fucking Roberts. You’ve got options.”


  • Montavilla

    Her knees look embarrassed.

  • GeoDiva

    Just give me the ring! She keep everything else.

  • Akemi

    Uh. I like the ring?

  • boweryboy

    She has crazy eyes, like she’s ready to cut a bitch if they talk smack about her outfit.

  • formerlyAnon

    I love the lady tux look, but it has to be properly fitted, even if one is wearing the slacks. If she’s not pregnant, this is utter and complete fail. If she is, it’s still a mistake. She’s not me, trying to assemble a barely acceptable office look without buying too many clothes. There is no stage of baby bump that couldn’t be better dressed.

  • MGK

    LOL suffices so well. Just LOL.

  • demidaemon

    WTH indeed. Scoop hems are all the rage right now, obviously. *vomits profusely*

  • Milos Mom

    Looks comfortable BUT, it is not a good fit and it looks like the black of the jacket and the skirt does not match. Almost, but no cigar.

  • rondele

    There is no defending this outfit. It is incomprehensible to me that someone would willingly wear it in public.

  • quiltrx

    Gosh, another “wait what’s wrong with it….OHHHHHHHH” look! From the tits up this is pretty magnificent except her lazy hair. Nightmare from tits down.
    She’s certainly fuelling those preggers rumors, isn’t she?

  • ThaliaMenninger

    The butler outfit forced itself on the nanny outfit and this is the out-of-wedlock result for which you just know the nanny’s dress will be fired but never the butler’s. Now the nanny uniform is living on the streets and her bastard child ensemble grows up to look like THIS. So sad.

  • Daktari100

    I’ve never liked the lady tux idea, not on anyone, including on the great Barbra Streisand, who famously sported it for what I think was Bill Clinton’s inaugural gala. It brings to mind that Meryl Street line I keep hearing in the movie trailer that seems to be playing endlessly on TV, when her character says to Julia Roberts’ character, “What did you do to your hair? You look like a lesbian.”
