Juliette Lewis in Monique Lhuillier at the “August: Osage County” LA Premiere

Posted on December 17, 2013

We are LOVING the fact that Miss Lady has decided to bring it to this poledance.

Juliette Lewis attends the “August: Osage County” Los Angeles Premiere held at Regal Cinemas in Los Angeles, California in a Monique Lhuillier dress accessorized with a Rodo clutch.

Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 Collection

When you’re thisclose to wearing a tiara, you’re putting the world on notice that your shit does not, in fact, stink at all. Attagirl.

Honestly, the only reason this doesn’t come off as a prom dress with delusions of grandeur is because of the attitude of the wearer. This is what we mean when we say someone’s selling the look. The headband is probably a bit too much and the shoes seem like not enough (if that makes any sense), but the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and she wins this red carpet for being bold and exuberant in her style. No LBD and nude shoes for Miss Lewis, please.

    She shoes are too conventional. She should have worn boots and it would be fierce. I am all about tiaras so the more the better .

    • ballerinawithagun

      Be-jeweled booties would have been fabulous!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I fantasize that Juliette should be stepping out of a gilded pumpkin pulled by pantomime horses-she’s Cinderella at this premiere.

        • ballerinawithagun

          I know! I’ve never thought of her as beautiful but she has matured into a stunning woman. Thank you fairy godmother!

    • twocee

      “It’s a tiara! He got me a tiara!”

    • HM3

      I dunno you guys….booties would’ve taken this back to quirky territory–which Lewis does well–but it looks like she’s going for a more serious vibe here. Definitely some sort of metallic closed-toe heel.

  • annabelle archer

    Luv huh!

  • teensmom99

    I have never totally given up on the napkin and this is why. What a color! And what attitude. And I want the model’s shoes–NOW!!!

  • Laura Renee

    Isn’t it dying for a necklace, though? Her neck looks so stark.

    I love how the headband looks in her hair, though — it comes off as understated, actually, to me.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Frakking fantastic. Attagirl.

  • Diego!

    I think since her tiara, bracelet and clutch are shiny, her shoes are doing favors for the look. She does look STUNNING indeed. so I am giving her a WERQ! You WERQ for your Oscar nod Miss Juliette! 😀

  • PastryGoddess

    Luv huh.

    I’d complain about not wearing jewelry but she’s almost wearing a tiara

  • Vickiefantastico

    There are no words for how much I love this. No. Words.

  • Jessica Freeman

    She looks fantastic.

  • Janet B


  • Kathy

    idk. On anybody else this would be an Attagirl. On Juliette it’s a WERQ.

  • decormaven

    Bringing it! Love!!!

  • homofascist

    I’ll bet Julia is NOT happy about this. Which is awesome.

    • Bwahah. That’s who she was looking at in the thumbnail on the front page.

      Julia v.s. Juliette.

      Meanwhile, Meryl’s just laughing about the whole thing.

  • Mismarker

    For someone who can just as easily be harsh and not particularly “feminine”, this is just an amazingly gorgeous, grown-up girly look. That smile in the bottom four thumbnails says it all!

    • zuzu

      And it’s easy to forget how pretty she really is, until you see her like this.

  • What a gorgeous color, and what attitude. THAT’S how to stand out in a crowd. Brava!

  • lizajane1776

    She’s on my irrational hate list, but she looks best ever!

    • CT14

      Me, too.

      I’m really caught between disliking her or Julia more, but she looks the best evah here.

  • Anna_Cecilia

    Only on Juliette Lewis. If this was on say, Carrie Underwood, it would be totally prom and I’d want to punch myself.

    Colour is exquisite on her.

  • I just wish she chose an actual tiara. That would have made this look even more awesome. Love her!

  • Nancer

    Can we just take a moment and notice how fabulous her makeup looks? Love this!

    • fursa_saida

      Right? I found myself sitting here wondering if she and Sandra Bullock have ever played sisters.

  • If this is what she wears to the premieres, can you *imagine* what she’ll pull out for awards season?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Please, please, Baby Fashion Jesus, give our Juliette a fabulous awards season!

  • nannypoo

    This is fabulous. I love the color and the shape. She looks great.

  • Sarah

    So pretty. Thumbs up to the headband/tiara; I like it! Her eyes are incredible with that dress. I think a closed-toe shoe was called for, but whatevs, really.

  • Alexis Peñafuerte Wenceslao

    She’s like, “fuck this shit, I’m going to prom tonight.”

  • crt

    i really like this. i just wish she had saved it for the oscars

  • MilaXX

    I like ir prom hair and all.

  • Jecca2244

    oh i dream of that purple.

  • MilaXX

    About the new layout; Should there be such a huge cap between the post and the comment section? I have a space that completely fills my monitor.

  • kat89

    She said in an interview that she was cast as the “pretty sister” for the first time in her life. I wonder if that has anything to do with this newfound attention to her appearance?

  • SugarSnap108

    This is one of those dresses that can either look ludicrous or amazing. She makes it the latter. The shoes seems out of place — not really tiara-worthy. But that’s a nitpick.

  • H2olovngrl

    She is not someone I usually think of as pretty in the traditional sense, but I think she looks lovelier here than I have ever seen her.

  • Kent Roby

    I’m so thrilled Ms. Lewis has come out of hiding with a vengeance! More! More!

  • alyce1213

    This is how you show up on the red carpet. This is her dress. The headband is fabulous.

  • Kayceed

    I’ve always thought she had such presence – love to see it deployed in this direction. So many ladies simply can’t muster it up.

  • gigi kennedy

    oh she is a stunner! LOVE

  • crash1212

    I love everything about this look. The color is sublime on her, her choice of accessories is spot on…loving the “tiara”. Wish she had gone with the model shoes though. This dress is gorgeous.

  • PeaceBang

    This made my heart grow three sizes bigger that day. And I bet Pantone is happy, too.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    I think she has a quite striking face

  • ballerinawithagun

    The shoes look much better in the 4 extra shots. When you see them exposed they look similar to the shoes the model is wearing and they look like they actually fit her!

  • tereliz

    Great color and fit on her! I don’t even care if this is the worst movie ever, I’m just grateful it gave us the gift of Juliette in a tiara-adjacent headband.

  • cocohall

    The color is really beyond good on her. She looks vibrant, and sassy, and when you are with Julia Roberts and Meryl waiting for their turns to pole dance, you’ve picked the right time to bring your A game. You go get ’em, girl!

  • padma sallah

    She’s werqing it. I love everything about the dress and I love the way she’s pulling it off!

  • ewes_urn_aim

    She’s working that gown better than the model.

  • AnniNoone

    “I’m Juliette Lewis, bitches.” I love her presence so much.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Dying for that headband.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Even if I didn’t want to see this, I would go just to show appreciation for Juliette Lewis’ red carpet appearances. BLESS.

  • barbarienne

    Difficult dress to wear without looking silly, but she is rocking it.

  • kimmeister

    The closeup on that clutch? Gorgeous.

  • Lilak

    I cannot TELL you how much I’m enjoying these Lewis/Roberts cuttin’ sessions! (granted, our little bystanders’ fantasy)

    Mixing my metaphors here, but … Once the final bell rings, Miss Lewis is going to OWN the world championship belt!

  • Imasewsure

    I love the tiara… oddly I’m not sold on the dress though… beautiful color

  • Julia vs. Juliette. This is my new sport.

    • LJCdoc

      Juliette wins all the time. It’ll get boring.

      • True, but in my imagined fan fic of events, Julia is used to being the center of attention, and is now trying to be “quirky – because how hard can it be?” and hating that Juliette is just having fun and is probably making her a friendship bracelet.

  • HM3

    Juliette Lewis? Is that you? She looks fantastic.

  • LJCdoc

    Love her so much. Monique Lhuillier often bores the stink out of me, but not here.

  • Tracy_Flick

    Is this the same person who used to wear the weird headdresses and such?

  • marlie

    I think Juliette’s hair and makeup look fabulous here. Just lovely. I love the color of the dress on her, but not the dress itself, though she is definitely owning it.

  • KT

    Well said, TLo — this would look ridiculous on a lot of other people, but she is killing it. Love her.

  • Ashleigh

    totally agree; fiercer shoes, less fierce hair pieces. 🙂

  • Danielle

    Can she wear a tiara 24/7? WERQ BITCH.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    What a fabulous color on her. My only quibble is the toenail polish which makes her toes look like part of the shoes.

  • another_laura

    What a gorgeous color on her! Brava!

  • LaSylphide


  • Damn, girl. Personal best. Work that shit like it owes you rent.

  • She should never remove this dress.

  • Akemi


  • Trickytrisha

    ” ‘scuse me while I kiss the sky. “

  • fashion4ever

    gasp!!!! love the makeup!

  • Joyce VG

    Juliette is my absolute favorite celebrity. She looks gorgeous.

  • Joanie

    I really love the shoes the model is wearing and would have snapped those up to go with the dress if I were Juliette. The hairband, eh. But everything else is fab!

  • kerryev

    Thank you, thank you for the closeup of the bracelet.

  • elemspbee

    Love the ‘tude. It is the Look!

  • quiltrx

    Love me some purple AND some Juliette! This would be a “the dress is wearing her” thing for a lot of gals…but our miss lady knows how to pull it off!

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Love the sum of these parts! Awesome.
