  • I literally cringed at the first photo, and I think that says it all.

  • RussellH88

    That’s 3 dresses Frankensteined together.

    • Kate Andrews

      Dress #3 is just a giant piece of cheesecloth.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      This is past Frankenstein. This is Fuckenstein.

      • GillianHolroyd

        can’t favorite enough.

  • charlotte

    The little mole who knew it was none of his business.

  • Michele

    Um, no. Head to toe.

  • Sweetie, that is not your head.
    I love the clutch, but not with this, busy enough, dress.

    • marlie

      I was so distracted by the whatthefuckery of the rest of the look that I totally overlooked the clutch. Who on EARTH would pair that with this monstrosity of a dress??

  • Sobaika

    Dior, schmior. Ugly is ugly.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Amen. What is happening at Dior anyway? This is hideous.

      • Clueless_Jock

        Raf Simons is deconstructing the Dior look. Some strange results indeed.

        • tereliz

          If this is the new new look, I want the old one back.

        • ankali

          Galliano did that already!

      • Sobaika

        The same shit that’s going on over at YSL, apparently.

        • Aurumgirl

          No, YSL is just cheap and tacky looking, flimsy fabric and boring, recycled looks. This is an artful catastrophe at Dior, a girl would have to be carefully fitted into these fabrics to be turned out in such a monstrosity.

          • Vtg Fashion Library

            The bottom of that dress looks like a cream version of plastic construction fencing. Like Marion The Builder. NOT good.

    • kirkyo

      She looks better in it that the model so there’s that at least. The clutch choice, however, is so very wrong.

      • conniemd

        The model looks like she is sneering at the camera, or alternatively she is so pissed off she’s ready to punch someone in the face. There is fierce and then there’s ugly face, which is what she is wearing.
        I guess I might look that way if I had to wear that monstrosity.

      • jif

        But is there a right clutch for this dress? Other than something that can fit the wearer’s invisibility cloak, of course.

    • Lorelei_D

      Its a test. There was an I Love Lucy episode about this exact subject!

  • hughman

    “I’m an astronaut/waiter/butterfly collector. And you?”

    • Same.

    • homofascist

      I admit, I LOL’d.

  • Where in Home Depot do I find that pearl lattice? I have decorating to do.

    • Lucía Gavello

      Look under “shower mat”.

  • KateMaryC

    It makes me feel better that Marion Cotillard also has to safety pin wrap tops.

  • sugarkane105

    Honey, your basketball net is showing.

  • Briana Campbell

    Call me crazy, but (hair-aside) I love it. That’s at least an interesting lace/sheer thing. I just wish she didn’t have that ballerina bun, and I wish the shoes were a color that pulled from the design in the top.

    • bluefish

      Like it also and somehow seems perfect for lattice-loving Marrakech.

  • sojourneryouth

    What an evening she’s dressed for! As we scroll down, we are at a lovely garden party with the curtains going up on the no-no show in an hour, and you will have to catch your own damned fish dinner with the netting at the bottom.

    • demidaemon

      I thought the fish was already trapped in the net.

  • leahpapa

    At this point I’m letting J Law and Miss Marion off the hook completely. You can’t work with fugly.

    • annachronizm

      which begs the question… is Dior the Stella McCartney of last season?

      • greymain

        definitely !!!

      • demidaemon

        No, they are just both awful in different yet similar ways.

  • lunchcoma

    I take it those two Dior dresses posted yesterday are the only tolerable things in their collection? Because this looks like a high school student bought three dresses from the Forever 21 sale rack and combined them as part of a demented Home Ec project.

  • Kathy

    Another Dior horror.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Give it a French accent and it rhymes!

      • Kathy


    • SugarSnap108

      Diorror. Just slips off the tongue.

  • Rand Ortega

    Hi. Can I borrow your dress? I have vines I want to frame around my front door.

  • Miranda

    what the hell………..

  • Blair Sylvester

    Dior has kind of lost the plot no? I would be a nice mixture of chic and quirky if they dropped the curtains are parting look of the skirt and the tacked on fishing net.

  • decormaven

    Please quit torturing celebrities and those who love them with these hideous designs.

  • gabbilevy

    Dior is really mucking it up recently, aren’t they?

  • MilaXX

    What fresh hell is this? Fugly frankendress, cartoon hair and wonky lipstick with a random clutch tossed in for good measure.

    • Rand Ortega

      Right? When did Ed Grimley start doing hair?

      • filmcricket

        So many likes for the Ed Grimley reference.

  • another_laura

    Jeebus, that is ugly. This is Dior couture?

  • Coleen

    What is going ON with this Dior collection?!?

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Oh, dreadful!

  • somebody blonde

    She’s almost making this ugly dress work, but not with that ridiculous hair.

  • zenobar

    Trellis Realness.

  • quiltrx

    I love the bodice, but damn it goes WAY downhill as you scroll! If it became a nice New Look skirt in just the black, I think it would have worked. But this is a nightmare.

  • boweryboy

    Bad Raf! Bad, bad, bad Raf!

    You will go to your corner and not be able to play with your friend Stella until the two of you learn how to make flattering dresses.

    • sojourneryouth

      Raf may make it out of his time out soon, but you’ll be collecting Stella’s mummified remains from that corner, my friend.

      • marlie

        HA. Though I think it’s might actually be the reverse. But I’d be happy with the BOTH of them staying in their corners permanently.

        • sojourneryouth

          I agree, but even as bad as this collection is, I at least see where Raf was trying to go, even though he keeps churning out struggle-dress after struggle-dress. I haven’t liked or understood anything that Stella has ever made, from the horse-head skirt, to the pineapple-over-ladybits bikini, to that ugly black, white, and red Frankendress with the horrible rickrack looking lace from last year. Her only aesthetic seems to be butt-ugly.

  • oatmealpie

    It’s a scrolldown WHAT?!

    • marlie

      It’s a scrolldown “Come the F on!”

  • sagecreek

    I always feel bad when I go out and you can actually see where I safety-pinned the cleavage.

    I shall feel bad no more! If it’s good enough for La Cotillard, it’s good enough for me!

  • alyce1213

    This dress is just nuts. Love the clutch, though.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Did Dior get taken over by ModCloth?

    • RL McGruder


  • Karen Belgrad

    A fishing net, table clothe, and some wrapping paper walk into a bar…

  • ccinnc

    Dior is just f***ing with us now.

  • Anna_Cecilia

    The *New* New Look of Dior: making otherwise attractive people look tragic.

    Or how to determine if you really earned that Oscar: become a Dior brand ambassador. You have to overcome nausea and really act as if you want to be out in public dressed in their clothing.

    • makeityourself

      Beautiful Marion, who has simply radiated with style and elegance on many a red carpet, has looked embarrassed in many of her recent photos. She’s a talented actress, but apparently the Dior is stronger than her abilities.

  • PeggyOC

    Dior has jumped the shark.

    • BayTampaBay

      NO SHIT! I was looking for a catchy phrase to sum up this look and you found it!

  • marlie

    I hate this. HATE. The dress is horrendous. A satin-ish cocktail dress with some doily-looking mess underneath it? And WTF is up with her hair?

    But at least her makeup looks pretty good.

  • MoHub

    Maybe it’s time for Dior to shut up shop.

    • lunchcoma

      Maybe. It’s not just that it’s ugly. It looks cheap.

    • marlie

      Fire whoever is in charge and start over.

  • Tatiana Luján

    what the fuck, Dior?
    I love her lipstick.

  • Celeste

    Girl, that is not anyone’s dress.

  • Nancer

    Oh. My. Um, ok. Bad macrame is back, I guess…. Huh. (Backs away slowly…)

  • BayTampaBay

    Weird! Just plain weird…….and ugly too!!!!

  • Judy_S

    Suddenly G. Paltrow looks better. At least she only put one unmatching skirt on over her leotard.

  • Kirstin McAulay

    Have we checked if Raf is not legally blind?? If the dresses cannot make Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence look good then there is literally NO HOPE

  • KinoEye

    Does Raf Simons have a thing against gorgeous women? Is that why he seems to be dedicated to making them look as bad as humanly possible? There aren’t many other good explanations I can think of for this hideous thing, or the recent string of failures from Dior.

  • lobsterlen

    What is the design theme to Dior this season, “lets see how many beautiful women in their prime we can make look fugly as shit in 2013.”

  • Jaydar

    Doesn’t work without the gloves. Gloves tied all 3 pieces together. This looks a hot mess w/out them.

  • Noah


  • bertkeeter

    Another TRAGIC example of what is NOT Haute Couture!

  • Tracy_Flick

    This is beyond scrolldown fug. This is scrolldown slap-in-the-face. And the bodice looks like she stuck a safety pin in it (I’m not above that trick, but I’m not a famous actress in Dior).

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    She’s mad at Dior for hiring that upstart Jennifer Lawrence and this is her way of striking back. It’s the only explanation I can come up with for this bungle of WTF.

  • Qitkat

    Well, Alabama did lose the National Title to Auburn.
    Dior has definitely lost its Couture Title. To ?????

  • rkdgal

    Aww, Marion purloined my grandpa’s fly fishing lure collection AND his trawling net! Poor gramps.

  • Beth Rogers

    The black part of the skirt looks like an apron. I’m waiting for her to walk up and ask to take my order.

  • tereliz

    Huh. Great clutch.

    • Qitkat

      It is, hence my earlier reference to Alabama. It ties the floor and the lace skirt together too!

  • I actually don’t hate this as much as everyone else does.[ducks] I like all the seemingly clashing textures ala Anthroplogie. If nothing else, it’s Anthropologie/Modclothiness (as someone noted below) is appropriate for a venue in Marrakech. And Cotillard just seems to make it work. Yes, I realize I’m alone here…

    • Qitkat

      You know, I don’t really hate this. There are a lot of times I like clashing textures too. My issue is mostly with the whiteness and length of the lace underskirt. The print is unusual and pretty. I wish the lace had picked up one of those colors, or even a silver-grey. I also would like to see 5 to 6 inches lopped off the length, then it may have worked much better, IMO.

      • SewingSiren

        I don’t hate it either. But I would like the inches added to the peg overskirt! and the waist is a little to high on the bodice. And raise the “v” slightly on the bodice so she doesn’t had to “pin” it shut . All fine if it were an off the rack look, but for couture , unforgivable.

  • ashtangajunkie

    So…she had her hair pinned up to take a bath. Moments before she stepped into the tub, her dress arrived. She took one look at it, said, “Fuck it” and proceeded to put on her makeup, leaving her hair in a bath bun.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    I use that bottom material under my rugs so they dont slide around on the hardwood, who knew?!

  • Violentcello

    I loved it until I got to the oversized mesh athletic shirt falling out of her skirt.

  • Trickytrisha

    Thank god Marion got this one before Jennifer Lawrence did. Marion can withstand a few more hiddy Dior moments. Jennifer is at the saturation point.

  • msdamselfly

    Worst she’s ever looked

  • teensmom99

    Okay, I’ve said these Dior’s look like 1950s Barbie dresses, but now this looks like a Barbie dress my 9-year old self created from my aunt’s sewing scraps. Amazingly, La Cotillard almost makes it work.

  • Addicted2Glamour

    I must keep this photo to show to my husband whenever he asks me what the PR judges mean when they say a garment is crying out for editing.

  • Darcy H

    No but see this dress is perfect, you lure the butterflies in with the top and then catch them with the bottom of the skirt!

    Of course that doesn’t explain the middle of the skirt…

  • Sarah

    That’s a bad hairdo for her. Oh, what – the dress is ugly you say? I didn’t notice. I can’t see anything from the neck down. It is weird. I must’ve blacked it out…

  • crash1212

    Can’t believe there’s an ugly Dior out there that they didn’t make Jennifer Lawrence wear.

  • stellamaris73

    One more nail in the Raf-Simons-at-Dior coffin.


    Sadly, I can’t even say that at least her hair and makeup are pretty. Nothing looks good here.

  • dschubba

    To quote Lana Kane, “noooooooooooope”.

  • Nika E

    What’s going in over at Dior? Its madness over there.

    • J. Preposterice

      I was about to type the same thing. So much weird-cheap-craycray coming out of there lately. And I love me some high-end craycray, but…not this stuff.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    No, no, no.

  • kimmeister

    If she was trying to match her skirt to blend into the tile on which she’s standing, she succeeded.

  • Jumpingjacks

    I love it, the pleating of the skirt is gorgeous. The white underskirt is a tad strange, but it can stay.
    A real French lady is the only one who can pull this dress of though.. Anything not French stay away from it

    • Imasewsure

      I scrolled down… said NO and then backed up and thought she was almost making it work. Only the French and maybe only Marion!

  • Danielle


  • SugarSnap108

    Dior is just playing one elaborate, expensive prank at this point, yes?

  • nannypoo

    I’m thinking maybe Dior should get out of the fashion business. Also her makeup and hair teams should be sorry for what they’ve done here.

  • SewingSiren

    She’s a brave one. And it almost works for me, the too high tulip with the extremely open lattice work under it kill the look. Although I must say the lattice underskirt matches the decor rather nicely.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    A world of No. However, the bag – standing on it’s own merits completely separate from the rest of that mess – is cute.

  • oklund

    Hate this dress on the model. Hate the obvious seam intersecting the black… um, thingy. But I have to be my usual contrary self and disagree about Marion’s overall look. I think it’s actually cool, in a I’m-a-quirky-French-robot way that only Cotillard could pull off!

  • Aurumgirl

    All these dresses are just bad.

  • Sam Smith

    scroll down fug.

  • i saw the top and said “now what can raf simons do to muck it up?” still, i was unprepared for the shock that ensued. that is a masterpiece of muck. a mastermuck, indeed.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “a masterpeice of muck.”

      (that’s so good it needs to be said again.)

  • NBG

    I am beginning to suspect that Natalie Portman has an “every other actress gets the crap Dior” clause written into her contract.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    Worst. Slip. Ever. And the top looks like she pinned it together with a safety pin.

  • Belvane

    Seriously, someone needs to go over to Dior and make sure they are okay. It’s like they’ve been taken hostage.

  • Pennymac

    Are there pod people working at Dior now? Have they been body snatched? So much fug!

  • ampg

    So Dior is just fucking with the entire fashion world, is that right? There’s no other explanation at this point.

  • Sunraya

    This is one of the most ridiculous dresses I have ever seen in my 52 years. Ugh. Yeech. And hilarious, all at the same time. Whose fault was this??? Fire them!!!

  • BrooklynBomber

    Dior loves the bitter kittens, for sure.

  • sarah jacobs

    The dress matching the decor creeps me out.

  • LaSylphide

    Oh please.

  • LeelaST


  • CT14

    Did she tie her hair into a bow?

  • martha

    Umm… I really like the textiles used to make this dress?

  • MannahattaMamma

    That skirt looks like the stuff they use when they’re packing oranges for shipping.

  • Dennis

    the bottom looks like the plastic rings of a six pack.

    • EdithP

      I was going to ask if I could use the bottom of her dress to scrub my pots.

  • It’s alive!

  • lifeisastory

    That’s just ugly.


  • GeoDiva

    Screw the dress…what the hell is on her head?

  • amaranth16

    This dress is effing weird. And I hope that’s not a safety pin at the bust, Miss Marion.

  • jspark

    Dior, listen all I want for christmas is for you to stop dressing our pretty lady stars like they come from Mars. Give Marion, Jennifer a pass please. You can keep Natalie P, it works for her and in the spirit of the season I’ll give you that one.

  • Lily-Rygh

    That is two layers of scrolldown fug.

  • formerlyAnon

    Not even on her.

  • French_Swede

    No no no no … oh Christian Dior! What happened????

  • tintashoopa

    I like it. I think it looks creative and interesting. Better on her than that grumpy model.

  • Laura Livingston

    So, so, bad. Stella McCartney is designing for Dior, now?

  • PeaceBang

    I just gaze into her eyes and find the strength to go on after seeing the outfit (and that silly Home Of the Whopper hair!!!).

  • LJCdoc

    scrolldown frankendress. Bad, bad, bad.

  • There is absolutely nothing right with this. Okay, maybe the bodice is okay. But that bag with that macrame skirt thing? Talk about fighting with each other.

  • pookiesmom

    Each one of these three dresses would look absolutely fabulous!

  • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

    Marion emerged from the tub and, as she was feeling wobbly, decided to grab the no-slip mat to wrap around her waist. Wet sidewalks and drenched asphalt, you can never be too careful.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Scrolldown fug at its best

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties
