IN or OUT: Julia Roberts in Valentino at the 2014 SAG Awards

Posted on January 20, 2014

Is she pulling this off? We’re asking.


“August: Osage County” star Julia Roberts attends the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California in a Valentino jumpsuit accessorized with a Roger Vivier clutch, Yves Saint Laurent sandals, and Wilfredo Rosado earrings.

She looks like Gumby in that last shot. That ain’t good. When she keeps her legs together, she looks kind of pretty, though.

Okay, yes, we’ve been waiting to use that line since the first time we saw this getup.

We don’t know… we’re not fans of tricky clothes. And we’re not sure that’s her color. But we do like the seaming on the bodice quite a bit. And her love for the outfit is coming through, which helps tremendously some times. The hair’s pretty, but a bit standard for our tastes. The look needed something of interest or edge in the styling. She is, after all, wearing a pink jumpsuit. There’s a point at which that can go “early ’70s porn movie” very easily.



Bitter Kittens make the call:

IN! It’s fun and she obviously loves it!

OUT! Totally “I Dream of Jeannie!”





The Bitter Kittens loved Cate Blanchett’s gown-length t-shirt, mainly because a lot of you really want a gown length t-shirt. Y’all voted it IN.

  • Julia is clearly thinking, “I am stunning. If anyone here actually ate, they would be eating it. My powers of actressing are greater than Amy Adams.”

    • berkeleygirl

      And she’d be wrong on all points…

  • When I first saw this I loved it, especially the colour, and the colour on her. At that time I thought this was a dress. Then I found out it was pants, and I could have been ok with that.. until..

    ..on closer inspection, I noticed she has two crotches, the fit on the bodice is terrible, and it looks like she has enormous hips thanks to the wide legs on the pants.

    Gumby was my thought, also those drag queen outfits from Priscilla Queen of the Desert. 🙂

    Love the colour on her, love the hair, clutch, earrings.. even so I cannot with the gummy legs. OUT.

    • Well said! I could almost forgive the jumpsuit, but the poor fitting on the bodice pushed me over the line.

    • procrastinatrice

      Yep, I am shocked to see these pictures…I though this was a striking and elegant dress when I saw it on screen–didn’t even realize it was a pantsuit. Pantsuits are fine, but two crotches are not, alas.

    • filmcricket

      Out for all the reasons mentioned here, especially the two crotches.

    • AudreysMom

      Priscilla QoD legs exactly! Great call!

      • If she had the matching wig it’d be an in. As it stands, OUT.

    • SugarSnap108

      I noticed she has two crotches

      That’s a statement I never imagined I’d hear.

      • ailujailuj

        unless you’re the lady w/ two vaginas. Two, I say…

  • Frank_821

    The outfit isn’t bad per se but it strikes me as not working for the venue. I don’t expect the SAGs to be as ritzy as the oscars but this outfit seems more like an outfit for a resort cocktail party. So OUT

  • Slanted & Enchanted

    OUT. I truly hate that color and, while the bodice detailing is nice, I don’t think the overall silhouette suits her. Somehow it looks cheap to me? I can’t put my finger on it (must be the color), but it looks like the sort of passable outfit you wear out to dinner on some tropical island because you’re too lazy to put on separates after a long day of tanning and drinking mai tais.

    • Daisy Walker

      Completely agree on every single point!

    • Ragnarockette

      The color looks like it was once a rich magenta, but then got left out in the sun for 30 years.

    • Introspective

      totes agree. almost close jules, oh you crazy-eyed gal, but no cigar.

      (but how about i need a long day of tanning and mai tais after the winter we’ve had in the northeast??)

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      OUT, for the reasons Slanted & Enchanted stated. Well said!

  • Missy

    Out. Aside from any gown-as-pants/pants-as-gown considerations, the fabric looks juniors-department cheap.

  • Karen Belgrad

    The Fug Girls noted that this outfit is giving her the appearance of double-vag…Plus it’s the color of Pepto. So it’s a big ol OUT!

  • belfebe

    OUT. Her crutch looks funny. And she looks like Gumby, all right.

  • Billie_Dawn

    What the HELL is with that last shot? Did the photographers ask her to do that?

    • OffToSeeHim

      You could make the point about it being pants unobtrusively, by taking an extra-long step. Quite honestly, it wasn’t a complete OUT until the last shot. It was like, “Meh. Meh. Meh. Oh HELL no!” Isn’t she WAY past the point where she has to do simple-minded stuff because photographers ask her to?

  • @Biting Panda

    Bubble Gumby.

    • scoobynacks

      From the moment I saw it that’s all I could think about: Gumby. “Bubble Gumby” is a stroke of genius.

    • Tigerfly


      • manina

        The eyes. She had them fixed and too much skin taken off the top lids, she can’t relax her lids or, she is suffering from hyper thyroid syndrome.

    • Vaniljekjeks

      Haha, was just about to say that! Great minds and all…

    • formerlyAnon

      Bubble Gumby is of such genius that I will upvote you, even though I gave her and In.

    • zenobar

      Literally spluttering with laughter. Bubble Gumby. Oh, thank you for that.

    • YES. This. Out. So much out, and not because it reminds me of I Dream of Jeannie–if it did, I’d find that awesome and vote it in. But it’s just so sad, so pink, and so…so baffling in that open-legged shot. Surely there were better ways to demonstrate that a simple wee was going to be a struggle the whole damn night?

  • ChiliP

    Oh, I don’t know…IN. If for no other reason than for the fact that the last picture literally made me snort coffee up my nose. Hilarious.
    (Also…I secretly think this looks kind of good on her)

  • lalahartma

    No. Maybe in another color.

  • TDSE


  • flamingoNW


  • Diego!

    Barely IN, but IN at last. Her last pic is odd but she looks amazing!

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    I am so torn in this one, but bc I think it’s the most youthful that she has looked in the last month, IN.

  • imspinningaround

    Kooky Aunt Julia who lives in Santa Fe.

  • Nicole Little

    IN because it’s the first look in ages that reveals her shape rather than covering it up. Before these pictures, I thought she had gained a ton of weight and was disguising her problem areas with thick fabric and weird cuts.

  • AudreysMom

    Out. (I Dream of) Jeanie looked WAY better than this.

    • Adriana_Paula


  • KinoEye

    She doesn’t have the chutzpah for this getup, not by a long shot. OUT. Also, this is something that may not be entirely under her control, but someone should chat with her about toning down that chronic, thousand yard stare. The crazy. It frightens me.

    • Deborah McLaughlin

      I agree. Crazy eyes in every shot. Very, very weird.

  • colorjunky

    This is unflattering as all get out. Love the Gumby line! Like the risk taking of a jump suit, but hate the hair, styling and fit. The neckline is very unflattering. She looks like a marzipan log at xmas.

  • KirFla

    OUT. My eyes!

  • Erica

    IN. It’s a good color on her, her hair looks good, if predictable, she’s having some fun with it, and I love pantsuits.

  • MissMariRose

    OUT. She looks ridiculous and her serious case of Crazy Eyes isn’t helping.

  • Chartreusite

    I’m inclined to grade her on a curve; I don’t know how she did prior award seasons but she’s been struggling quite a bit this time around and I think she looks comfortable and/or happy wearing this while still maintaining a level of chicness. Plus, wearing a jumpsuit to a major awards show? Awesometastic. IN.

  • housefulofboys

    In. I think this is actually more flattering than a lot of the stuff that she wears. And it’s fun! I really hate the construction where the pants start on the front, it looks really awkward and contributes to the gumby-ness of it all. Maybe it’s to prevent any accident camel sightings…? if so, I am willing to ignore the awkwardness and give thanks.

  • Carla_Charlton

    She gets credit for trying something different, but this looks terrible on her. It makes her look thick around the waist and her boobs look too low; again, let me say that the super low neckline is not for most people. The color is also not flattering to her.

  • anotherkate

    The fug girls nailed it for me by pointing out the double crotch. Sorry Julia, but that there is a dealbreaker. OUT.

  • ModernDowager

    No. I agree w/what the Fug girls said: “the jumpsuit has two vaginas”

  • elemspbee

    IN. This is fun, though it could have been fitted better. The color is nicely refreshing. The hair needs a bit more primping.

  • kmk05

    …Nope. Nope nope nope. The concept could work, but only on a PhD-level clothes wearer. It’s kind of dowdy, and I think it’s a little bit of her, a little of the lacking accessories, and a little bit of the actual jumpsuit (colour and 70s shape).

  • boldprint

    my reaction: “are those pants OH MY GOD THOSE ARE PANTS.” sorry, Jules. OUT!

  • CLoverleaf

    I think the last shot ruins it for me. She doesn’t even look like she’s being goofy, as in “HAY GUISE, SECRET PANTS!’ She just looks like she felt obligated to spread her legs…very awkwardly.

  • kimmeister

    Out, because the crotch pleat is disturbing and it’s not her color.

  • Genevieve

    I want to say in because I love the jumpsuit, but I don’t know if I love it on Julia Roberts.

  • JauntyJohn

    Ima gonna give her an In. As with most of us, it’s a qualified “In” but, cruising along on her clearly liking how she looks, I’m giving it to her.

  • Miss_Led

    Noooo! Double crotchety crotch madness.Scalloped clamshell midriff. Did I say OUT? OUT.

  • RL McGruder

    There is not one thing about this I like – and I, more than many, appreciate a jumpsuit.

  • BobStPaul

    That would be an out for me.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    OUT! There isn’t a single thing to sign off on here, not even her bra.

  • ailujailuj

    i dunno man. if you can’t separate your legs in a pantsuit of all things… then it don’t work. so fail on the design of the lower half. only the bodice is working but it’s not fitting right over the hips below the waist.
    …or is it just that she bugs.

    ETA: at least she didn’t put a blouse or a cardigan underneath it.

  • Blair Sylvester

    Out . Terrible from head to toe . It gives me a stomach ache insert pepto bismal joke

    • Blair Sylvester

      Also why is an Italian designer putting an eagle with spread wings on her chest ?

  • Anna

    Amber Waves from Boogie Nights. Out.

  • ojosazules


  • altalinda

    No. Out.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    Pink mega pants are the hairy underarms of 2014. OUT!

  • Verascity

    Nope. OUT.

  • berkeleygirl

    OUT. Pepto-Bismol is good for the tummy, not the red carpet.

  • CT14


    It’s just better than her last couple of outfits. It’s not actually good.

    And I think she should really reconsider the cocker spaniel hair.

  • Gatto Nero

    The color doesn’t work on her. (It *might* work on a pale brunette, but I’m not sure about that either.) The pleated detailing is sort of interesting, but I’m not wild about the fit (or maybe about her undergarments).
    I think it’s time to lose the leonine hair.

  • Carrie

    OUT. It was okay until that last picture with her legs spread. Just awful!

  • embers618

    Out, for reasons that have already been thoroughly discussed. Also, does anyone else see the S.H.E.I.L.D. logo on the bodice in the last shot? The whole thing looks more like an eagle spreading it’s wings the more I look at it.

  • Super OUT. That is one sad shade of pink, and that neckline is doing her no favors by being simultaneously dowdy and unflattering.

  • Scimommy

    OUT. Those seams make her look like a sea creature with gills.

  • mmebam

    STOP! Double crotch!



  • Melanie_Bee

    I personally have a deep dislike of jumpsuits and really wish they didn’t exist but I actually kind of like this – at least when she’s standing with her legs together (that picture of her with her legs spread apart almost killed it for me), because then you kind of can’t tell that it’s a jumpsuit – it looks more like a dress with a pleat down the front. And when she was being interviewed on the red carpet and revealed that it was a jumpsuit I thought “oh, that’s kind of fun”. I mean, it’s certainly not one of her best looks, but I like that color on her, and the concept is fun without being ridiculous.

  • Dandesun

    I have a serious, deeply ingrained bias against Ms. Roberts that dates back to my college days at the turn of the 90s so I’m disinclined to approve of anything she wears… or does… or whatever. That being said, I do think the detailing on the bodice is striking even if it’s hard to see. Unless you get the detail shot, it just looks kind of baggy. The color doesn’t seem to work on her as well as it should and that last shot? Hoo boy… that ruined everything for me.

  • gefeylich

    Out. She’s trying to prove something, and I don’t think I want to know what it is. And as the Fug Girls said, no one needs two crotches.

    The color is heinous, too.

  • Fanny_Trollope

    Out. Out out out. Also out

  • Gara St. James

    Awful. Doesn’t suit her figure at all. And the color doesn’t help. Looks dated all around.

    • MilaXX

      And not in a cute retro way

  • Guest

    Julia is also giving full on crazy eyes in these shots… it looks like she’s about to devour someone’s soul.

  • dschubba

    That last shot elicited a legitimate facepalm.

  • Kittie Fahey

    In. But not for awards show. and I couldn’t possibly love anything more than the pink gumby description

  • JulieK

    Out. The color is bad, the hair is ombre forcrissakes, and then the crazy eyes hit you!

  • JuliaInBlack

    That last shot almost looks like a weird optical illusion. Also, I will never see her in pink without thinking of Steel Magnolias… and here mah colors are “Gumby” and “Garish”. OUT.

    • Monabel

      Thank you.

  • StarburstLady

    The cut of that thing is wildly unflattering to her. And why on earth is she standing like that in the last picture?! Why not just make the same thing a gown? OUT.

  • AmeliaEve

    I give this a cautious lowercase in. I’m ready to see some more imaginative retro ’70s styles than just pornstaches and peace signs. This captures a lot of what was fun about clothes from that era. I loathe the box-pleated crotch, though, and her eyes make me nervous.

  • Janet B

    Hair, shoes, jewelry aren’t working at all. I want to like it, but it just doesn’t work.

  • Kaytee

    Out, out, Out. Love the color and the clutch, the rest is OUT, OUT OUT!!!!

  • DinaSews

    You know what bothers me? She hasn’t seemed to have changed her style for 15 years and it’s not working for her anymore. She reminds me of that aging aunt who tries to act cool by wearing yoga pants and you can see her panty lines. OUT.

  • DominoEstella

    No, it’s totally weird at her vagina.. not ok.

  • jonnyf8

    In – but only because she didn’t wear her husband’s shirt underneath this pink hot mess.

  • Malibufire

    Someone please, please get this woman a mirror.

  • MilaXX

    OUT!!!!! This just looks stupid. She has no waist & those pant legs are jiffy. I’m all for a chic lady pant. This ain’t it.

  • OUT. She looks like one of Charlie’s Angels.

    • Tlazolteotl

      YES! She needs to be doing the Jaclyn Smith gun pose with her fingers. And OUT for her lack of imagination in not having a Charlie’s Angels moment on the runway.

  • Julie Chase


  • PhillyDeb

    I am giving her an “In”. I agree that I would not have chosen this color. But compared with that dress-over-blouse combo from the GGs, and the borderline frumpiness of some of her other RC choices, I think this is pretty good.

  • Sam Smith

    I actually like the color and the bodice pleating detail. But, the rest of it is a hot mess.

  • Tracy_Flick

    You know, I could sorta kinda maybe get on board with a hot-pink 70s style jumpsuit (I like the bodice), but pair it with silver platform sandals and you FORCE me to call it an “out.”

    • jabes

      The shoes are terribly cheap-looking.

  • Viviennne

    Out. That is not Julia’s color and the seaming design on the bodice is all but missing the 70’s sun burst applique …. again, I’m surprised by the fashion choices women of means make. How hard is it to look chic and put together when you have tens of millions in the bank?

  • MandyM

    OUT! Absolutely everything you said… not her color, needs to keep her legs together (not even an issue with JR really) and I don’t think that neckline is doing her any favors. She did not think the fashion world would applaud that get-up, did she? “They’re all going to laugh at you!”

  • ThesisMonkey

    OUT. tacky old lady. there is no redeeming those “pants”

  • Jangle57

    Did not like this on her at all; the color is abysmal OUT

  • SarahVN

    I don’t think we can support this in good faith. OUT.

  • Dagney


  • Richard Banger

    OUT. When her legs are together, it just looks like a boring dress. And then she pulls her legs apart like that, and it becomes an ugly jumpsuit. Also, crazy eyes. What’s up with that?

  • LJCdoc

    I gotta go with OUT. The first time I saw a picture of this, I could have sworn it was a dress cut up to there, and she’d had both legs amputated and was levitating. Throw in her usual crazy eyes, and NOT GOOD.

  • cassandu

    so much OUT! she looks like a gigantic pair of specialty scrapbooking scissors. the martha stewart kind that have the pattern on the handle. ugh…

  • Sabin

    It makes her look saggy, old, and clueless. Out.

  • bailey

    crazy eyes, OUT

  • bellafigura1

    IN, it’s the American Hustle fashion moment, and I love that she’s diving in. The color is a little puce-y, and the Gumby line diluted my love for it, but having said all that, yeah, IN.

  • Sarah

    OUT. Crotch with 3D corner! NO! *shudder*

  • Ruth Preston

    Merciful heavens. Between this and Kerry Washington’s unfortunate misstep, I need a nap and a grilled cheese sandwich. Hold me, TLo.

  • Maya

    out out out

  • Garcia Loca

    Earrings are gorgeous, but the clutch is a tackytown craft project.

    Jumpsuit with crotch arrow… Uhmm. OUT.

  • lunchcoma

    A qualified in. It’s far from perfect, but it’s not so bad for Julia and it’s at least more lively than some of the retirement home dresses she’s been wearing lately.

  • Eve Farren Farber

    Why must we keep featuring her? She looks like a venus fly trap.

  • marlie

    So, this isn’t as bad as the interwebs made it out to be on Saturday night.

    The bodice is interesting, and I’m not fully against the pants. BUT, I hate that color the more I look at it, and the way this looks in that wide-legged stance concerns me. Plus, I like her hair and makeup. So, this gets a lowercase ‘in’ from me. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either.

  • StillGary

    In! She tried a new color — i would tell her to avoid the last pose but she and that frock have parted ways by now. Where do these dresses go now? Is there anyway to attach a warning to it? “This is a pantsuit, stand accordingly, by gum!”

  • jw_ny


    With her legs together, the crotch appears too high, and spread apart, the squareness of the pant leg is odd. It is Gumby legs, which I suspect she knew and was having fun with the crowd/photographers. There is no other reason why she’d stand like that…unless it’s to shake out a wedgie. 😉 Also, it’s quite 70s-ish…all she needed was a loop chain belt and a flowery scarf head wrap. I do think her hair and makeup are pretty, perhaps too informal for the event tho.

  • uprightcitizen

    Dead on with the Gumby comment. There’s an episode of the Mary Tyler Moore show, towards the end of it’s run, where she befriends a hooker who wants to be a fashion designer. She makes Mary a kelly green outfit that pretty much looks like this and it’s portrayed as being horribly tacky … and that was in 1977. Still, Julia looks happy, even if the outfit is like the love child of Barbie and Gumby.

    • Kelly

      Well, but the tacky MTM dress had large cutouts all the way down the front two sides — and visible panties. Not that I care much for Julia’s outfit here, but I don’t think it’s in the same league as the hooker design. Fun episode, though. (But didn’t the woman who played the hooker get murdered? Sad.)

      • alyce1213

        One of my favorite eps, especially when Ted says “Everyone woman should have this dress.”

  • Di James

    Out – hate the hair, the color doesn’t work with her, it doesn’t fit and she’s not edgy enough to carry it off. To me this is a GTNYD – set it free and let someone who could pull it off have it.

  • ovarB

    Out!! Throw a head scarf on her head and a Virginia Slim’s cig in her hand and she has a part in “American Hustle.”

  • RCH

    My biggest problem is the bodice does not do her chest any justice. It’s all just droopy.

  • acevedob

    This is “IN” too. Perhaps it’s because I’m getting used to Julia in these sorts of clothes. :

  • I’ve never seen a pink Gumby before! IN!

  • Lori

    OUT. So incredibly out. She is not pulling this off. No one could pull this off. It has a double crotch/lady bits frame, FFS. It’s hideous. I’m not sold on the color either an it’s mashing her girls in an unattractive way.

    Did I mention that this is an OUT?

  • MzzPants

    Try to resist the call of my crazy eyes! Observe the layers of my magic portal! OUT.

  • conniemd

    Out. I freaked at the Gumby picture because I didn’t realize it was a pantsuit. I’m like WTF trying to figure out what weird optical illusion was going on there, being able to see through the middle of the skirt.

  • decormaven

    The fit around the bodice is off and makes her look thick waisted. The pantsuit was a good idea in theory, but isn’t working in real life. OUT.

  • jjtxgrrl

    I think its a fun idea…but the reality is that its not flattering. She has no shape, and it does nothing for the boobs. I also agree its not her color…It just doesn’t look right! OUT!

    And isn’t “ombre” hair out too?I love that look….but I already did that fad and moved on….why is JR sporting it still?? ….jus saying. :/

  • andi56

    From head to toe, she is a roaring cry for help.

  • msdamselfly

    OUT Looks very 70’s but not in a chic way

  • SewingSiren

    Cray cray eye.

  • Bethany Roullett

    OUT, because pink jumpsuits need to DIAF.

  • somebody blonde

    Out. It’s really not flattering- something about it is making her look fat, and we all KNOW she’s not fat.

  • tereliz

    I Dream of Gumby

  • Vaniljekjeks

    Out. The bodice is… something… and the color is… close… but I can’t unsee pink gumby.

  • unbornfawn

    When you look like Gumby on the red carpet, it is an automatic OUT.

  • JulieTy

    Hideous. And she has Hallmark baby/crazy eyes in every shot.

  • AnneElliot

    Out, because of that last wide-legs shot, if nothing else. It’s an odd color, and it’s too 70s retro for me. And what’s with the crazy eyes in the fourth shot down?

  • trisker

    OUT. 60s cocktail party by the pool. HATE this.

  • Trickytrisha

    OUT. Oh so OUT. When did her eyes go all demented? I’ve only noticed it recently, but suspect it’s been a thing for a long time. That “dress” is atrocious.

  • MCM

    Love it! Bright, sharp, fun.

  • ashtangajunkie

    So OUT it’s hard to look at. Also, what is with the permanent crazy eyes? An Oscar winner can’t act not crazy?

  • texashistorian

    In, because she’s a bubble gum pink eraser (I bet she even smells like strawberry) and also because she’s exhibiting those crazy eyes you mentioned in a previous post about her. Gotta give her credit for that.

  • Jenna621

    Out. It’s just too odd.

  • Judy_S

    IN, so long as she avoids the Gumby pose.

  • LeelaST

    OUT. It’s unflattering, gives her no shape whatsoever, and all that weird puckering. The crazy eyes don’t help.

    • Lilak

      Plus the ombre snakes hair (which bothered me more than the rest of the world, apparently).
      And if I may add an item to the criticism of That Garment: the color was awful-just-awful (going by my TV, which is pretty true — here @ TLo, it’s a more vivid shade on my monitor).
      So, for all of the above reasons: OUT (in a mega font, please)

  • anyalama

    OUT. Ridiculous.

  • pookiesmom

    It’s like a magic trick where they pull the “dress” apart to show that the legs have been sawed off. OUT. But thank god for small miracles that no small rabbits are jumping out of her hoo-haw.

  • carnush

    Definitely not. OUT.

  • webslice33

    gonna say IN til I saw the last picture..OUT!

  • GoryDetails

    OUT. Not-remotely-her-color/Gumby.

  • The Versatile Chef

    Can we get her some new hair? I feel like she’s been in the same hairstyle rut since “Pretty Woman”. This just doesn’t work on a 40-something, IMHO.

    And let’s get SJP some new hair while we’re at it.

  • d4divine

    Another mommy outfit…

    • d4divine

      Oh, OUT. Julia those last minute scrambles to Sak’s in the mall are doing you no favors.

  • SRQkitten

    OUT. And the crazy eye too.

  • Belvane

    Out. It’s awful, as is almost everything she has ever worn in public. And she really needs to cut off about eight inches of that ratty hair.

  • rumcg66

    OUT. Not just because it’s a Pepto Bismol pink jumpsuit, but because it doesn’t flatter her in the least. The bodice is just sad, the way it fits (or doesn’t).

  • Sara__B

    Pepto Bismal pink. Looks like polyester. Absolutely 100% OUT.

  • demidaemon

    No. Hate the bodice, hate the porno-esque vibe. HATE the way she’s posing. OUT.

  • mjude


  • schadenfreudelicious

    OUT, Bat shit crazy eyed Gumby!

  • cocohall

    Anything that is the color of a My Little Pony probably should be avoided on the RC. How can a Valentino look this cheap? It might be chic in black with a metallic belt. Did she secretly want to sit at the American Hustle table with the cool kids?

  • alyce1213


  • CB

    Out. So out. To paraphrase Michael Kors, the crotch on that jumpsuit is INSANE.

  • OUT. You have got to be fucking kidding me with this.

  • Kelly

    Out. Before you know it’s pants, it’s just something ordinary in what looks like cheap polyester. Once you *do* know it’s pants, it’s just something goofy in what looks like cheap polyester. And what’s the spots on these dresses? First Lupita, now Julia. I like the earrings, though.

    • I am pretty sure those spots are on the camera, especially considering they are across a couple of different people. 🙂

  • paintedfish

    Out! she looks like my old Cher doll and not in a good way.

  • E. D.

    I was OK with it when I thought it was a dress. Jumpsuits should not leave the 1970s, period.

  • Alyssa

    Out. It isn’t flattering, and I can’t stand the double crotch.

  • queeniethebold

    Jeannie in “I Dream of Jeannie” looked metric buttloads better than this.

    Out. Pow-right-to-the-moon out. There is not one thing about this that’s flattering or attractive. What is WRONG with her?

  • Constant Reader

    I really like that shade of pink, but not on Julia. i also hate the fit on the jumpsuit and the crazy eye. OUT.

  • FancyPhilly

    Out. As the Fug Girls said no outfit should have a vagina, much less two.

  • This is an IN. Yes, I grade on a curve.

  • sisterb67

    Out. Pack that shit up, put it in a time machine, and send it to either Pam Grier or Tamara Dobson in 1973.

  • Big Bear

    Out. But your Gumby comment is in. And hilarious.

  • maretha2

    OUT. Julia has really lovely legs … and THIS is how she decides to treat them?? Sheathed in layers of wide Pepto pink fabric?

  • Dixie_Sugarbaker

    She looks like she is on stilts. OUT!

  • She looks like she’s asking everyone around her, “ami pulling this off? Huh?” It’s got a weird unflattering shape. And colour. Re: Gumby, hehe!

  • Lily-Rygh


  • Louise Bryan

    I guess I’m not appreciating any fit problems with the bodice. I hate jumpsuits, and this one is made in an unfortunate shade of pink, recalling episodes of gastrointestinal distress. (*shaking my head*) I still give her an IN.

  • mdcoon127


  • phrenk

    She looks like she’s having fun, and I smiled looking at her. IN.

  • SorayaS

    Out for that pose alone. No for real, this could have been an in but for the styling. The shoes and clutch are tacky, tacky, tacky (with the nails painted to match). And the earrings look cheap. I would leave the hair and makeup as is and find more delicate accessories to play off the robustness of the suit.

  • jkatkins

    Looks a lot like something I wore in 5th grade to a party. In 1972. Hate, hate, hate. OUT.

  • DesertDweller79

    I’m so tempted to say in because the color looks nice on her. I like her hair and makeup. I love her earrings. Like the clutch. If it were a dress, then it would be in.

    But OUT due to the gumby jumpsuit. Very narrow decision.

  • Paula Pertile

    Deafening silence from me. (If you can’t say something nice …)

  • Emily

    I cannot even believe this is up for debate. So so out. Ugh. Go home, Julia. You’re drunk.

  • lundibleu

    I’m going with OUT for this one. Love the top half, casual hair and all, but the bottom half is a big meh.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    It’s ugly and her crzy eyes freak me the H out.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    OUT! OUT! AH OUUUUUUUU… Werewolves of London!

    Sorry, the howls of pain confused me. This looks like poly. That shade of pink is cheap on her. Those pants are just way too roller disco to make me happy. OUT, by a long shot.

  • MoHub

    Girl, that’s not your color.

  • ewes_urn_aim

    O U T

  • Laylalola

    OUT. Good God.

  • shopgirl716

    Out. Not flattering at all.

  • nannypoo

    Hell no.

  • LadyLuck777

    Love the jumpsuit. Hate the color. Still, I’d vote her out for that last pose alone. OUT.

  • CarrieBaby

    Wish she would something different with her hair every once in a while

  • rkdgal

    Out. I don’t even feel like I have to explain why.

  • frannyprof

    Out. Totally unflattering. Also, crazy eyes are back.

  • TwiddlyStun

    Out, out, out. For some reason that bosom looks terribly matronly, even in what should be a young look.

  • gina Butler

    The technique on the bodice is called “release tucks”. A cool way of doing them is to take the bobbin thread and back-thread the machine. Start the tuck at the release point and sew back to the seam line.

    • Coolekat

      Wow! I worship people who know this kind of stuff.

  • Lisa_Co

    It’s better than her GG bustier over a shirt. And much better than Kerry Washington. So IN.

  • formerlyAnon

    IN. It IS pink, and if I think solid pink works, it must. It works, and she’s having a blast in it.

    Early ’70s seems to be having a moment, and honestly the power of Julia Roberts to put people ever so slightly off will probably protect her from anyone getting porn movie vibes. Except for those ones where the people are all so awkwardly well built and entirely unsensual that one’s left searching for anything that might remotely be sexy about it all.

  • quiltrx

    IN. That’s a great color for her, and I like the softer hair for her, particularly with this outfit. She obviously loves it, which indeed comes through.

  • Lorelei_D

    IN, because she looks happy and because What’s wrong with Gumby?

  • Myra Amler

    OUT. This is doing nothing for her; her midsection looks big, the double crotch is bizare, and the color ages her. I wish she would do something different with her hair.

  • Imasewsure

    I was going to vote out out out until I saw it was a pink Gumby pantsuit and now it’s an IN for me. Awkward yes but still an IN just for the hilarity and the fact that it doesn’t bore me

  • CPK1

    Wow. No. This is most unattractive and the Gumby stance as pointed out by TLo is hilarious and tragic

  • VicD

    Oh HELL no. Out.

  • rabswom

    In, for sure. She looks amazing.

  • jencapture

    Out. She looks like a carnival stilt-walker in that last shot.

  • luludexter

    Out! The fit is terrible

  • SierraDelta

    SERIOUS Michele Bachmann eyes…

  • Carly Clement

    OUT….. The fit is off and I think the colour is off! But at least it was as interesting idea.

  • boweryboy

    OUT. wtf?

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I wish she were pulling it off. Like, off her body and into an incinerator. OUT. So very, very OUT. I’m stifling gales of laughter as I look at it.

  • yesnomaybe

    is it just me or is she starting to look like michele bachmann?

  • GTrain

    *dead* at Gumby. oh and she’s OUT.

  • TooTrue2b

    In, as long as she keeps her legs together.

  • Pterodactyl111


  • I love how her face is just radiating the message “I’ve been doing this f’ing red carpet thing since 1988, so yeah, i’m wearing a pepto bismal pink jumpsuit, suckers. What are you going to do about it?”

  • LaSylphide

    Love the bodice; pink is NOT her color; does the world need another jumpsuit? But heck, it’s Julia and she has the greatest mouth in the business. What to do? What to do? Unfortunately, it has to be OUT. Sorry Julia…

  • Cindy Bartlett Zigler

    OMG! Definitely an ‘OUT’! The beachy waves hair is so not doing it for me. Lips are too pale, and the jumpsuit looks like it’s made out of cheap double knit polyester, although I’m sure it’s an expensive fabric, as it’s made by Valentino.

  • Danielle West

    Out. This screams honky tonk to me.

  • Sunraya

    The eyes!!!! She really has the crazy in those eyes. What the heck is wrong with her??is she drinking??

  • amanda siegelson

    ok – i’m torn because it couldn’t be more of an OUT for me – but i don’t agree that out=i dream of jeannie in any way, shape or form.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I dig it.

  • psychoblonde

    She gets and in for making me laugh so hard. Anyone who can make themselves look like Gumby, with pride no less, should be rewarded!

  • CeeQ

    No. Out.

  • appliquer

    Out. Awful color, blah hair, poor styling.

  • Reality TV Casting

    out not her color and since when is wearing pants an excuse to go spread eagle at the cameras

  • Closet Crisis

    That last photo decided it for me. OUT.

  • Nanaia

    My very first thought on this was “It looks like something she would have worn in Pretty Woman, before the makeover.” Then I found out it was a pantsuit. At which time, I decided it needed to be cut off at the lower lips for her to wear it in the movie. It is rather pretty even with all that. I just can’t say one way or the other.

  • Qitkat

    Ya’ll just know if Tilda floated in from The Pink Planet, everyone would be rapturous. You know it’s true.

  • hmatz

    Out. Those pants have a vagina pleat. She’s essentially wearing an enormous labia. Not a good look.

  • Gumby.

  • queen b*tch

    Hahahahahahahahahaha, OUT

  • Coming to this post late and all my potential comments have been said, better than I could. So I will just stick to two things: 1) “Bubble Gumby” is genius, and you should consider trademarking it, @BitingPanda:disqus; and 2) OUT.

  • sagecreek

    I don’t mind the pantsuit as much as many of you, but I’m voting her out because I’m sick of the Tousled Mane O’ Hair do.

  • Pepper Collins

    She’s got those crazy eyes going on. I’m too distracted by them!

  • PeggyOC

    Out, out, out. It couldn’t be more out if it were dancing in a thong in the pride parade. Julia, please hand this outfit to the touring company of Priscilla Queen of the Dessert.

  • Kristin

    Out. Ew. I’m trying to be objective (loathe her, just loathe) but it’s just so… candy colored. She looks like a bottle of Pepto Bismol.

  • kategs

    Judas Priest – NO! out.

  • KT

    I can’t believe you even put this up to a vote. It is AWFUL all around — OUT!

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    Wow, she really DOES do the crazy-eyes thing on the RC, doesn’t she? So smizing. Much annoy.

  • rissa42210

    OUT. I gasped on the last shot and NOT in a good way.

  • Andrea Lentz

    LOVE IT IN, i didn’t realize it was pants at first though thought it was just a really really high slit. still love it.

  • AnniNoone

    Out. That shade of pink + crazy, crazy eyes = I need a nice lie down now.

  • MaggieMae

    No, not pulling it off, I’m afraid. OUT.

  • Valdri8

    Did Rita Wilson lend Julia her hair stylist. At least it is slightly more are appropriate on Julia.

  • DiverK

    Out. And I have to disagree about the seaming on the bodice. It’s doing nothing but bad things for her bust.

  • MMR

    Could not be more out to me. Terrible.

  • Suse

    Way OUT! Didn’t know Gumby came in pink. She’s too old for that hair. I read that she has the same stylist as Miss Cate. Can that possibly be true?

  • allcapsERINN

    Gumby laughter. She looks insane.

  • CatherineRhodes

    OUT. Ugly.

  • JaCory Deon

    Out for me!

  • julnyes

    Oh this is the definition of OUT

  • OUT
