    Love the color, not sure about the floof and frou-frah going on at the back

  • LJCdoc

    Is that a back of the knee bow? Why do I feel like I’ve been saying WTH/WTF all day long at these people?

    • sienna elm

      How the heck will she sit??

    • Vtg Fashion Library

      This is what happens when triple ply toilet paper gets caught on your shoe on the way out of the ladies room.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Maybe this looks better with indoor lighting. Outside in natural light, the dress seems the same color as her skin.

    • sojourneryouth

      It does. She looks washed out, which is sad, cuz she can do the right colors really well.

    • kimmeister

      She just looks like a floating pair of eyeballs.

      • lunchcoma

        Now I’m thinking of Cassandra from Doctor Who.

        Not that Anna Gunn is a plastic surgery victim, but the color scheme is similar.

  • PostsYouCanDanceTo

    From the back, it looks like she’s halfway through taking off the dress. Looks pretty great from the front, but overall this could’ve been better.

    • H2olovngrl

      She looks like she had to tug on it all night long to keep it from slipping. I think this dress would be better suited to someone with a shorter torso. Also, the color is a no.

  • Lilah

    The ruffle on the boob just looks like a mistake. Otherwise it’s a beautiful dress that would have set her off so much better if the color didn’t match her skin and hair.

    • MoHub

      My reaction to the boob ruffle as well. It looks as if the fabric was miscut, and the seamstress tried to stitch in an emergency tuck to keep the top from falling down.

  • Jessica Wyatt

    All I can think of is how much better this would be if it was an actual color and not such a non-color.

    • Monabel

      It’s a beautiful color, just not on a pale white girl.

      • Jessica Wyatt

        Because it IS the color of pale white girls.

      • Little_Olive

        Yes, it’s quite a remarkable hue of champaign. The fabric is very elegant IMO. It doesn’t suit her all that well, though.

  • Necklace. Maybe a bracelet? Like c’mon.

  • Maluca

    This needed to be a jewel tone.

    • Nonnah

      I think it needs to be on a brunette.

      • nowlo

        Or perhaps a dark-skinned woman. I have never been a fan of putting beigey ‘nudes’ on fair-skinned blondes.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        My quibble with this dress on Anna Gunn is that it is so close to her own sking tone. In a deeper shade of pink or another color I think it could have worked much better for her.

  • EEKstl

    It’s a pretty dress but a bit much for the Globes. Better for the Oscars – on a brunette, appropriately hemmed.

  • @Biting Panda


    • demidaemon

      Agreed. Definitely insomnia cure.

  • TAGinMO

    This would’ve looked great in, y’know, a color.

  • sienna elm

    Love that clutch!

  • Evan

    Can’t get more beige than that.

  • Glam Dixie

    I do not like this from the front, I do not like this from the back. I do not like this, Sam I Am.

  • Spicytomato1

    Lovely if a bit too monochromatic. Even a small pop of color — maybe in her earrings or on the clutch, would have livened it up, I think. Still, she’s so much prettier and chic-er than her character on BB that I can’t help but want to give her an attagirl for that alone.

  • Charles

    In certain shots, the colour and fabric choice does nothing for her complexion. It almost makes her look sickly in certain instances. The shape itself, although pretty conventional, cuts her badly in how its rendered but in a bright jewel tone and better fabric, this might really sing.

  • teensmom99

    “I’d like a dress and make up for an event I really don’t want to attend, please. So I’d like to be invisible. Mmmm, yes and the hair, too. As invisible as possible.”

  • Jonquil

    She’s gotten so thin that I thought she was Cate Blanchett at a glance!
    In truth, I love Anna Gunn too much to judge her too harshly. If only the dress were in a nice jewel tone…

  • Guest

    will ladies please stop wearing dresses the same color as the rest of them?!?

  • luludexter

    will ladies please stop wearing dresses the same color as their skin, hair, and the rest of their bodies?!?

  • Verascity

    It would have been great in a color. Literally any color. Or even black or white. And without the keyhole back. And with better hair and makeup.

    • Gatto Nero

      In other words, an entirely different look?

  • Fred Vaughn

    Not feeling the nude/peach usually on a woman of this complexion, but somehow I think it works on her.

  • hughman

    The Ghost of Golden Globes Past.

  • crash1212

    She must’ve been scared by a color wheel in a past life.

  • lunchcoma

    I’ve seen this same dress on this same blonde woman a million times before. Next.

  • Trickytrisha

    Terribly unflattering dress, especially from the back. I dunno, it’s like she got the dress, figured it was enough effort, and decided to forego hair and makeup.

  • ginger

    If she absolutely had to wear this dress in this color, a big-ass colored stones necklace and bolder make-up would have helped.

  • I kinda hate this whole thing. BTW is cadaver pink trending, and no one told me?

  • Is there some damn fool reason this isn’t in an actual COLOR?

    • alyce1213

      Right? Anything other than this nothingness.

  • ailujailuj

    you are all right with the comments.
    but I don’t care. I just love this. and her. and the ‘flouf and fru frah”. fuck off all of you!!!!! 😉

  • Raymond Dnomyar

    Not liking the fabric. Falls between ‘bridesmaid’ and ‘my grandmother’s ‘fancy’ tablecloth.’

  • Sunraya

    Horrible fabric and pale skin, pale hair, pale dress, pale clutch. Boring and pale.

  • demidaemon

    It’s just ok, to me. The color is really washing her out, though.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Makeup??? Bold Jewelry??? Something?

  • ballerinawithagun

    Look at those orchids! Now change the dress to that color!

  • Introspective

    she looks to be shitting skin colored satin.

    • MoHub

      I believe Heidi Klum described that effect—in season 4 of Project Runway—as “poo-ing fabric.”

  • jilly_d

    I hate nearly all of this. *steals clutch and runs*

  • KayEmWhy

    Hate the entire look. She doesn’t have the back for a backless gown.

  • Monabel

    That dress is for a voluptuous, brown skinned woman.

    • MilaXX

      I think this is the type of elegance Paula Patton imagined she was wearing.

      • Imasewsure

        Yes that dear girl was tragic although I’m sure her mirror showed it differently.., hopefully giant ridiculous frippery will die a quick and painful death in 2014!!

  • Sarah

    Very elegant, and pretty color, excepting tis too much the same as her skin, as others have noted. My main complaint is that it looks messy in back – don’t know if the tied-together bandeau action was called for.

  • MilaXX

    Pretty even though that’s enough pooling material to make a second dress. I also just fond out she’s going to be in the US version of Broadchurch. I’m hoping it turns out well.

  • Kelly

    The color is that of old foundation garments, and the back actually looks like an old foundation garment.

  • PeaceBang

    Everything is the same color? Hair, skin, gown, clutch, nails? Anna, throw a girl a bone, here. You look like a fancy Band-Aid.

  • Jennifer Bober

    Wow! Talk about monochrome.

  • pookiesmom

    Really large, fancy ace bandage.

  • ms_kat

    Pie dough colored is not the right choice. Add that to weird fluff, it’s like a pie dough baked without weights worn as a dress.

  • quiltrx

    Invisible dress, invisible lady. And I can’t imagine that dragging a pile around all night was much fun.

  • MzzPants

    I think this is gorgeous. I much prefer a shell pink to all the putty colored dresses out there.

  • Closet Crisis

    I dunno…she looks…pretty? I’m sure it’s a lot better in person. Kinda love that I can relate to her whole look. She’s not an A-lister so I don’t expect her to have access to stylists/hair people/dress makers like some of the others. I think she done good with the resources she had.

  • bertkeeter

    As sleek as it first appears…dress winds up tortured and over worked…should have eliminated all that junk in the trunk!

  • Laura Renee

    Hahahaha that back is ludicrously complicated

    like the train got snagged in a lawn mower

  • The best thing about these photos is the color of the flowers.

  • boweryboy

    The color ruins it. I hate the back, but it is a gorgeous gown on her rendered in the blandest color possible. Hair, make-up, and accessories need some work, and had it been in any other color I would have at least given her two snaps.

  • MannahattaMamma

    HOW DOES SHE SIT DOWN? Or walk, for that matter, with all that weight hanging off her butt?

  • Cate

    If this were a different color and less wrinkled, it would be great. But as it is, she looks extremely washed out.

  • Gatto Nero

    Color is washed out, and the back is a mess — the tangle of folds and the massive bow, and all a bit saggedy. Not flattering at all on her body from that angle.

  • sunflower

    It could have been interesting in any other color but that one

  • supri_supri

    In the minority I guess but I loved this! The nude color works in this fabric and overall she looked glowy and candlelit. There is enough pink in the beige-gold tone of the dress to give it life.

  • veracity

    Blah. Wedding dress. Blah.

  • Diego!

    Honey, dear, there is only one Cate Blanchet and she is still alive and kicking! I hate the puffy train on this dress…. it’s really odd and she looks naked all over. Colorless dress, make up and hair. It’s an OUT.

  • Aaminah Khan

    I’m imagining this in a deep midnight blue and it’s a hundred times better. As it is, all of her is one colour and I just can’t even.

  • titaness25

    So pretty from the front…so tragic from the back.

  • carnush

    Lovely but too washed out. Needed some color on her lips.

  • Errick Loyola

    Hate that train. Gorgeous colour, though.

  • marlie

    The dress sits too low on her chest, and everything – head to toe, hair and makeup are ALL. ONE. COLOR.

    But the clutch is pretty.

  • BKagainwiththesweatpants

    She’s channeling Skyler in her mirroring-what-Walt’s-wearing/Mrs Heisenberg period. Which I LOVE HER for.

  • MartyBellerMask

    It’s so pretty and she looks so good. I feel like giving her a pass on the non-color.

  • penguinmom

    Would have also helped to borrow more jewelry The rings and earrings were okay, I suppose, but this look was crying out for a dramatic bracelet, and a necklace.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Botoxed to the point her face can’t move a muscle. Which was my criticism of her during “Breaking Bad.” Her use of injectables during the show interfered with her ability to emote difficult scenes.

  • VicD

    Had this dress been a color, it might have been beautiful. As it is, stand her in a corner and let her fade into the wall.

  • Liz Lake

    She is statuesque. And by that I mean she looks as if she and her gown are the same color. Also, I think she looks gorgeous, I just wish there was more color differentiation. Even her makeup and accessories match her dress and skin. The bow at the back of the knees is a bit much, however I do like the cutout.

  • Nicole Little

    Why is she such a knock-out here but so unattractive on breaking bad? Not crazy about the dress but love her. Hope she gets tons of work.

  • MichelleRafter

    Love the clutch. Some statement jewelry – major earrings or a necklace – would have helped a lot.

  • formerlyAnon

    Ditto on don’t match the dress to your skin remarks from just about everyone. Also, (and apologies in advance if this is body snarking but I am assuming one can do something, if not always a lot about how much muscle one carries) to me her [literal] back looks older than her front because nowadays it’s only the older set I see exposing so much bare back with so little musculature, usually.

  • MaggieMae

    I don’t love the [color mostly] dress, but what I do love is how at ease & confident she looks in the photographs, even with piles of fabric pooling at her feet.

  • Jessica Sabat

    She needs more glow and radiance in her hair and makeup (probably shimmer for shoulders and collarbones too, while we’re at it) to bring herself up to the level of the dress. It shimmers, she doesn’t as is.

  • Little_Olive

    Someone forgot their eyebrows at home…

  • Kelly Sowers

    More dramatic earrings and a richer color like violet or even a dusty rose
    and she would be STUNNING.

  • Ragnarockette

    Is this big bunch-o’-fabric at the back of a dress a thing now? ‘Cause April Ludgate had it too.

  • Shug

    Dig that clutch.

  • Lily-Rygh

    Wow, does she desperately need some sort of color! Her hair, skin, dress… A bold make-up job could have helped here, but still…
