Juliette Lewis in Sachin + Babi on “Good Morning America”

Posted on December 12, 2013

This is cute. Not perfect, but cute.



Juliette Lewis stops by ABC Studios for an appearance on “Good Morning America” in New York City in a Sachin + Babi dress paired with Jimmy shoes.

The dress looks a bit like a black hole with lace edging and the shoes are a bit on the heavy and focus-pulling side of things, but it all feels kind of right. We get itchy when she looks too polished. She’s the definition of quirky (and not in that fake Manic Pixie Dream Girl way) and she looks best when her clothes reflect it.

That’s a bit heavy on the makeup, no?

    Open-toed shoes with tights make my eyelids twitch.

    • kimmeister

      As do light colored shoes with dark hosiery (for me).

    • boweryboy

      I was about to write the same thing!

    • Tatiana Luján

      But I sooo celebrate the fact that she is wearing tights!

  • Justine

    Juliette looks great! I wish Zooey Deschanel pulled off this look half as well.

    • jen_vasm

      She indeed pulls this off, but Juliette is 40. It’s not good to be 40 and grouped together style-wise with the Zooey. Time for an update.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I adore this woman…so talented and pretty. Really like the look but the tights are making me twitch.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Between Juliette and Pink, I’m thisclose to Adorable Overload.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I know, I really do love this look, dark tights and all.

  • annabelle archer

    Hmmmmm….as I love her to the moon and stars, it is hard for me to say a negative thing…..but I pretty much hate this from head to toe. I has a sad now.

  • gabbilevy

    The tights/shoes combo is awful, but the dress is working for her.

    • Sarah

      I think lighter tights (too keep the black hole effect to a minimum – grey? red?) and a close-toed shoe would rock.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    The dress almost looks navy when up against the black tights but the hair and make-up is some of the best she’s ever had so I’m torn on if I like this or not.

  • frannyprof

    Oh no no no no no no no. boys. no. I’m a huge fan of Juliette Lewis, but this is one hot mess. The hair, for starters. And the fit on that dress. And the tights with the sandals. Nothing is working.

    • Mod_girl

      The hair is bordering on “Peg Bundy”

      • kimmeister

        So true!

      • greymain

        PERFECT !!!!

  • lunchcoma

    I was okay with it until we got to the open toed shoes with the tights.

  • Jessica Freeman

    The dress is ok, but the black tights, and gold open toed shoes make me weepy.

  • Glam Dixie


  • Diego!

    I like it. Even the shoes. What I do not like AT ALL is that awful hair. It’s ruining everything here!

    • Glam Dixie

      It’s so bad it almost looks like a wig.

      • Diego!

        Hahahaha so true!

      • makeityourself

        Based on the synthetic shine across the bangs, it looks like pure polyester to me, or whatever bad wigs are made of. And at first glance I thought it was Kathy Griffin.

    • Tatiana Luján

      the hair is terribly tacky.

  • Pennymac

    I love her, and strangely, love this. I wish she had chosen to go either with the tights or the shoes, because both seem to be competing against each other. And I think she’s wearing that heavier than normal makeup well, especially that lip color.

  • kimmeister

    Whoa, I never realized that she looks like she could be Jennifer Garner’s quirky sister.

    • marlie

      That’s a movie that I’d go see.

    • Emily Giovanni

      when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was Jennifer Garner. 🙂

  • sojourneryouth

    I think that this only works for her because she is AWESOME and quirky. On anyone else, it’s just a very low neckline with babyheads away from being porn maid.

  • marlie

    Tights and open-toed shoes are a NO. Also, NOW is when we talk about weather appropriate, when the men in the background are bundled up in parkas and hats, and she’s in a sleeveless dress. When the temperature in the past few days is below freezing, I don’t care how close the car is to the door; she needs a coat.

    The dress is fine, but a little fussy. And that’s not her hair.

  • ojosazules

    This is not Juliette’s dress.

  • I really like the dress but not with those shoes, tights or hair. And I suspect she is standing so stiffly because she has literally frozen her arse off.

    • marlie

      She has to be a giant popsicle at this point.

  • Introspective

    the look from the legs down throws this off for me. either a different pair of hose or a different shoe but these two together kill what could be a good look for her.

  • filmcricket

    Normally I would hate that tight/shoe combo, but because it’s her it works. If there weren’t something slightly off, it wouldn’t be JL. The combo of short dress, dark tights, and bangs really makes me think she’s Single-White-Female-ing Zooey Deschanel, though.

    • charlotte

      I thought she was Zooey Deschanel for a second.

  • SewingSiren

    On board with everything but the shoes, and even they aren’t that bad.

  • Carleenml

    This all looks like it got lost on the way to Taylor Swift’s house. It’s cute. I don’t want my Juliette to be cute.

  • Juliette Lewis is doing Zooey Deschanel drag!

  • KT

    She looks really cute, I like this. I also love her and all her quirkiness, but I’m worried that her movie August: Osage County is just a horribly-titled slog of scenes where people yell at the dinner table. Hopefully all the yelling is done by Juliette and Meryl, and done to Julia.

  • Her hair looks great, it really suits her face. I wish her shoes were a color, and that the dress were a navy or plum rather than black, but on the whole it’s a good look for her. I’ve got such a soft spot for Ms. Lewis. She does her, at all times.

  • MilaXX

    The dress looks too tight and the black tight/heavy gold sandal veer a bit too close to daytime hooker territory. I’m okay with the makeup, but hate the bangs.

  • Synnae

    I assume the heavier make-up (which looks fine with me) is because she either about to go or just has been on the telly.
    Other than that, mega-cute look, especially the dress.

  • boweryboy

    Luv her. ’nuff said.

  • Sam Smith

    Why was she on GMA, new project?

  • AnguaVonUberwald

    I actually really like the tights with the shoes. I dunno. I was never as anti-tights with open toed shoes as everyone else, since I never think it looks that bad, and is just another one of those “rules” that everybody has to parrot when they see it. And in this case, the black tights against the gold shoes looks really interesting. And I love that dress. All right, I’m done.

  • Miss wks

    she has a beautiful turned ankle…

  • teensmom99

    Seriously?! A morning show?

  • Imasewsure

    Like everything but the shoes with this. Makeup is heavy but it’s morning, right? Maybe a little extra is necessary to wake the face up at 5am or whatever ungodly time she was on?

  • ballerinawithagun

    To all of the below: Where would Prada and Marc Jacobs be without socks (tights) and sandals?

  • snarkykitten

    Does this bitch ever age?!

  • Violentcello

    Yes, the shoes are focus pulling with this outfit, but I still want them. And I’m currently wearing tights with open-toed shoes so shut up all of you. Shush!

  • Janet B

    Dark Tights + Light Colored Open Toe Shoes = Ick.

    Almost any dark shoe would have been better.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “Dark Tights + Light Colored Open Toe Shoes = Ick.”

  • crash1212

    I love her. I love this look. Adorable dress and it’s styled perfectly for her. Actually, I want that dress for party season. WANT!

  • I can’t believe how much I’m liking the open toe + tights look. Lord knows my feet would thank me if I could pull that off.

  • I want to meet up with her for texting and scones. 😉

  • Anplica Fiore

    Zooey Deschanel called – she wants her dress back.

  • nannypoo

    The dress is cute but the tights with open toed shoes look ridiculous and she can stop waving now.

  • LeelaST

    Love black tights but they always look silly/awkward when paired with a sleeveless outfit; also don’t like shoes other than black with black tights. Hate this dress with a passion! Hair & makeup are pretty.

  • Trickytrisha

    My teeth hurt from all the sweet. She’s super adorable, just a bit overly so.

  • Tanya Wade

    I adore this look on her. When you put something so sweet on someone so salty, the tastebuds explode. This is the chocolate covered pretzel of ensembles.

  • Morales Mike

    She looks great and people never mention it but she’s another one who has apparently stopped time. She looks virtually the same as she did 15 years ago..

  • Milos Mom

    Juliette is a bit off herself so it is fitting that her clothes are also. Just think if the shoe was all white it would work so much better for her. Otherwise c’est si bon.

  • GoAwayKardash

    She is adorable and has never looked better.

  • Terri Terri

    I think her gorgeous dimples and cheekbones are focus-pulling!

  • lillyvonschtupp

    Love the dress!

  • martha

    Are Jimmy shoes Jimmy Cho”s

  • lalahartma

    I love the whole look. She looks great!
