Naya Rivera in Michael Kors at the People’s Choice Awards

Posted on January 09, 2014

Our thoughts, they are a jumble, darlings. A veritable mish-mash.






“Glee” star Naya Rivera attends the 2014 People’s Choice awards at Nokia Theatre, Los Angeles, California in a Michael Kors dress paired with Stuart Weitzman sandals.

On the one hand, we’re all, “Yes, she is giving us diva and drag and mini-J Lo and we’re loving it.” And on the other hand, we’re all “Girl, those shoes are tragic. No one wants to see you gripping all night.”

The dress is confusing us. We’re not ones for trains over mini-skirts, but that doesn’t bother us as much as the colors, which do nothing for her. In fact, we’re pretty sure that beige clashes with her face entirely. We think the problem here is that she wore a drag face with a non-drag dress. This was definitely something that called for cleaner hair and makeup. Go home and either scrub your face or change into something heavily sequined to go with it, Naya.

    I actually don’t hate the color combinations as much as I do the train. This girl is feeling herself lately.

    • charlotte

      Train wreck? I can’t help it today.

    • 3boysful

      We are soul sisters. I’d like it if we could whack off the train and get her some better shoes.

      • demidaemon

        That’s my biggest quibble as well. I am speaking of the train, of course.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Girl, fire everyone involved with this mess.

  • sagecreek

    That was just weird. I thought it was a fairly decent luncheon dress until I got the train, and the hair/face doesn’t match either look.

    Oh, well. At least we are talking about her.

  • FunButNutz

    I’m alarmed that a beautiful woman like Naya, seems to think that she needs to style herself to look MORE like a trashbag like Kim Kardashian. Walk away girl!

    • alyce1213

      It’s sad that she seems to be following the Kardashian aesthetic — blonded hair, overdone makeup, trying-too-hard sexy poses.

      • demidaemon

        I blame the rappers in their lives, who seem to want to make every woman into Beyonce.

      • Carly Warnock

        And the face contouring. Too much, toooo much!

  • stubbornthoughts

    I swear her face keeps changing every time she makes an appearance. She’s aging far too fast, and not in a good, Keirnan Shipka way.

  • I can’t see sideboob, so that’s an improvement. Look, better shoes, ditch the train and we have something pretty for a lunch with grandma.

  • charlotte

    If I can see the texture of her makeup in a full body shot, something is seriously wrong.

  • Sobaika

    Is that a necklace or a collar? Either way, it is bad.

    I think she needed all the makeup for the new hair color.

  • marlie

    I… ? I just don’t know what to say anymore. She’s never going to steal the “Queen of the sultry stare” away from JLo, and on her it just looks silly. Also, ditto what everyone else said about her looking more and more like Kim Kardashian, ESPECIALLY now that she’s lightening her hair too. And that stupid train on the dress makes me angry.

    ETA: I don’t hate the “naked” shoe as much as TLo or many of the other kittens, but these are HELLA unflattering.

    • jen_vasm

      Maybe she’s going for the What-if-JLo-worked-in-HR-for-a-morning? look.
      She seriously has beigegirl issues, of which I’m familiar with. That hair highlight color hair is not quite right, plus that nude lip and lightened eyebrows make her kind of generic. She really needs to ditch the stylist trying to make her into Kimifer Kardlopez.

    • Shoes make her feet look big.

    • demidaemon

      And Kim is obviously trying to become Beyonce. Follow that train of logic for a bit and see if it doesn’t melt your mind.

  • @Biting Panda

    I gave up Naya Rivera for my New Year Resolutions. It was time. Our relationship had become dysfunctional and I was obstinately refusing to accept the person she wants to be. I wish her well in all her endeavors.

    • charlotte

      Naya’s Resolutions?

  • Matthew Davie

    I saw her come onstage with this outfit on. It’s completely insane if you try to walk. The train was completely tripping up in her legs – halfway to the microphone, she was about to fall before she thought “fuck it” and just grabbed the stupid train and bunched it up in her hand.

  • Sarah

    Those shoes are like formal Crocs. The dress is an example of how fit is not the only important factor in picking a dress: picking a dress that is attractive counts too.

    • mjude

      formal crocs! brilliant! LOL

      • demidaemon

        I hope no one ever takes that idea and runs with it.

  • Lesley

    she looks like a hybrid of kim kardashian and jlo. not feeling the highlights or the mullet dress, disappointed she normally brings it.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    She looks like Kim Kardashian. She’s jumped the sexy shark.

    • Little_Olive

      “Jumping the sexy shark”. Excellent.

  • suzq

    Look out, Naya! A gown is trying to attach itself to your ready-to-wear Michael Kors dress!!!!

  • Akemi

    Wow, this is all kinds of terrible.

  • Emily Rose

    I really, really do not like the new hair color at all. I can’t even look at the rest of it because the hair is making my eyes twitch.

  • therealkuri

    Chop off the train, switch the shoes for metallic gold pumps and this would be awesome. I love the necklace.

  • Introspective

    i really thought the black shit hanging behind her was a mistake. but alas she and kors intended this dreckitude.

    when youre obviously vamping, any natural sexiness that could be attributed to you goes flying out the window. take that as a tip for 2014 naya. thank me later.

  • Mothra

    How is beige the new anything?

  • Danielle

    She really is morphing into JLo. I didn’t want to believe it but… there is it. Right before my very eyes.

    • Little_Olive

      I think the problem is she is *trying* to morph into JLo -the Kardashian-ness and the crayola eyebrows there being the most relevant undesirable by-products.

      Naya: JLo is JLo… because she is JLo. Be yourself. Sorry for the tautology.

    • YoungSally

      JLo with a soupçon of KK

  • Mismarker

    This look is the answer to the question “What if J-Lo and Kim Kardashian had a baby?”

  • Rand Ortega

    Wrong dress for the event. Great for a more casual movie premiere. An daytime awards show– DT Emmys, Teen Choice or Nickelodeon whatever. But this dress is too low rent even for the PCA’s.
    Did I mention the dress is hella stupid?
    There’s also that.

    • kimmeister

      You must be a Californian.

  • nannypoo

    While she’s home she should look for some more flattering lipstick. This sultry schtick she’s deploying is just a small step away from slutty. I hope she stops soon.

  • boweryboy

    At least the girls are safely tucked away, so there’s that. I’m still scarred by that black low cut number she wore a while back.

    ETA: I’m getting more of a drag KK vibe from her than JLo.

  • d4divine

    More bronzer anyone? I have plenty…

  • Pennymac

    This would be entirely mediocre if it weren’t for that ass-flap. With it, combined with that weird stripe of pencil eraser color next to her face, and the Kartrashian vibe I’m getting, this is a big old miss.

  • Sing it with me, you know the words:


    • NYCGlamourpuss

      You and I will SING THIS FROM THE MOTHERFUCKING ROOFTOPS!!! It was the first thing that popped into my head – “I see. ANOTHER one of my brunette sisters going blonde.” I know, I bitch about it constantly here, and I didn’t mention it here because it was getting exhausting and discouraging. We brunettes are not the poor white trash of the haircolor world. We’re fierce!

  • I hate this look on her. She looks like a half-assed Donatella Versace with that face.

  • ashtangajunkie

    What in crikey fuck did she allow to happen to her hair?

  • TAGinMO

    I’m suddenly hungry for Neapolitan ice cream.

  • Betsy

    How old is she? No fillers before 50, Ladies!

  • Imasewsure

    I say tennis shoes and scissors would fix this outfit…. a wash cloth for the uber-drag makeup wouldn’t hurt either

  • MzzPants

    I’d like it better if she cut the mudflap off. And worn it as a cape.

  • Noshmek

    Neapolitan dress comes in three icky flavors.

  • GoAwayKardash

    Someone is trying too hard.

  • jilly_d

    I just can’t with her spackled face and dead eyes and ultra-pout. Stop. It. Irrational celebrity hate list.

    • akprincess72

      Me too.

  • DominoEstella

    woah.. I thought this was Jennifer Lopez.. The high/low thing is ugly and tired.

  • StillGary

    I’r really liking everything except the necklace and the train!

  • kimmeister

    1. The slightly lavender tone to her lipstick is making her look like a drowned cadaver in some shots.
    2. The black train, from the side, looks like a censor bar! If only it had been censored.

  • LeelaST

    Didn’t even see the extended skirt at first, too distracted by gripping toes. The original JLo is too many w/o a mini wannabe.

  • formerlyAnon

    If there had been no train, or the black segment had been long (gown length) it would have been a much better dress.

    I started out liking, but the longer I look, the worse my opinion gets. I’ve quit looking. Last glance I decided her two-tone hair was an abomination, somehow, with the dress. And one out of three actresses have either two tone or ombre hair these days, so I am definitely over-reacting.

    • demidaemon

      Your definition of “two-tone”is HILARIOUS!

  • Leah Elzinga

    I want to wash her face SO BAD.

  • filmcricket

    Oh honey. When you’re in your forties you’ll regret all the time you spent in your twenties looking like you’re in your thirties.

  • MilaXX

    Yet another look I liked on screen, but dislike here is stills. The shoes, however are just tragic.

  • Trickytrisha

    In addition to the hair, shoes, dress, makeup, that smirky, pouty self-conscience pose is annoying as hell.

  • VioletFem

    K. Lo Rivera.

    • @Biting Panda

      I see what you did there. And I like it.

  • Lilak

    Not sure why anyone who is not Courtney Stodden is giving face to the cameras as if she *were* Courtney Stodden.

  • veronkimo

    Too much bronzer.

  • River

    Uhhh. I must be exceptionally bitter and PMS-y today but I hate this. She is STUNNING and this just looks like wannabe Kim Kardashion/J-Lo hybrid in a tacky blah dress. *SO SAD*

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Now if Naya was carrying a butt-ugly badly handpainted Birkin bag she’d be a true mini-Kardashian

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I just can’t with the train on a mini-dress. It’s not quite as annoying as granny panties, but it strikes me as a silly look. If you want a train, wear a gown that merits an actual train.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    On camera, she looked like she wasn’t wearing a dress. Color fail.

  • akprincess72

    I just find her off-putting, she never seems animated, just vampy…

  • Kimi Colney

    Go home and either scrub your face or change into something heavily sequined to go with it, Naya. – please

  • Diego!

    OUT. Her hair looks like a wig. Her make up is not doing any favors to her, specially the lip color. I HATE the color combination AND the train AND the shoes. Sorry girl. It’s a first time for you, I think.

  • BayTampaBay

    She looks like Kim Kardashian…it’s weird.

  • MannahattaMamma

    She is a veritable mashup: Kim Kardashian channeling Beyonce channeling JLO. There is enough contour on that face to spackle an entire room.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    She’s got on a color blocked mini-mullet skirt – so I’m thinking NO. Plus, she’s not-so-slowly turning into JLo, which isn’t so good.

  • Bibiana Beardsley

    It really looks like she’s trying to cover up a bad acne attack. Back to the ProActive for you!

  • Patrick Cleary

    The dress is adorable, until you hit the train.

  • Julie Parr

    She’s doing J-Lo better than J-Lo now.

  • crash1212

    I can go with the dress…until the train, then it’s over. She’s certainly into the BIG hair these days, isn’t she? That style of shoe needs to be retired. Now.

  • venusvelvet

    The posing looks straight out of a VS catalogue – trying way too hard.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Disappointed about the hair it used to be dark and glossy and now it looks like a Kimmy K rip off dye job. Without the train you could wear it to the office. I gotta say I love that last over the should shot so I think it would’ve been better as a full gown vs a mullet dress.

  • gigi kennedy

    yeah the beige SUCKS here. totally sucks.

  • Honey, J Lo and Kim Kardashian already exist. Just be your own gorgeous self. And let me have a look at that other eye, just once.

  • Aidan B

    Personally I think the colorblocking is hitting her in the wrong places; if the white went up over her waist this would be much better. I still can’t sign off on the excessive highlighting/contouring/shimmer, though, and her hair is totally wrong for the look.

  • shelley514

    Low budget Kim Kardashian knock off.

    • demidaemon


  • Lorelei_D

    Drag face is right! She’s too young for it – all immobilized features in case her face cracks.

  • Lilyana_F

    She’s been totally overdoing the face lately. The looks she’s giving are bordering on crazy.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    That’s the worst dress mullet ever!

  • lalahartma

    Hate the hair and the mullet dress.

  • Fred Vaughn

    She fucked up.

  • Crystal

    whatever i think she looks hot.
