Mireille Dagher Fall 2014 Couture Collection


She’s just trolling us now, right?

We want to say this looks like drag queen couture except no drag queen worth her tuck would ever step out with pancake boobs.

  • Leslie Streeter

    She has to be trying now, right? To look busted? Because…no.

    • Sobaika

      Look at the third picture of her – that is the look of a woman who is crazy and knows it.

      • Chelsea

        I am so bothered by that 3rd picture.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        yup, that is some batshit crazy right there…

  • IraKi

    Honey you should find a way to be sexy and classy. You already got the looks. You need to find out how you should dress them up in a (say it with me)

    That’s all dear Paula. Oh! And I really dislike your hubby.

    • Ragnarockette

      Yes! It’s infinitely more frustrating because she’s so gorgeous. I think about how she was styled in Mission Impossible (kick-butt chic) and I want to cry seeing this. She could knock it out of the park every time, instead she chooses the most unflattering, ostentatious, flammable trash!

      And then she poses like a crazy lady.

      • looklook

        I think even her look in “Precious” is a hundred times better than this.

  • Ginger

    I think porn stars at the adult video awards would proclaim this to be vulgar and tacky.

    • CelandineM

      Seriously, no adult video star would be seen in a dress that made their breasts look like that.

  • siedhr

    Hahahahahahahaha. She looks like she’s been swiped by a truck. And flattened against a wall. Seriously, she’s lopsided. How is that possible?

  • blogless

    She has such a beautiful face but her outfits do make her look like a guy in drag.

  • Kerri

    I seriously thought the top half was trompe l’oeil at first glance. Which, why would you do that? I don’t know. Either way, this is just very bad.

  • Wendi126

    Gun to my head and I couldn’t find one good thing to say….

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      That she makes everyone else look like Grace Kelly in comparison?

      • Katesymae

        You are a master of backhanded compliments.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    OMG!!! How to make a dress look cheap in 2 seconds!

    • saintebeuve

      How would that dress *not* look cheap? It’s half of a shrunken red lace negligee and/or a repurposed ice skating costume with yards of tulle attached to the waist.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        I think the model looks lovely and not cheap at all. It’s really about about the fit and the styling.

        • saintebeuve

          Well, she’s got her “curtains” drawn, which I think helps. But it’s still curtains over a micro-skirt, along with pancake boobs, illusion netting, and red lace. Boudoir wear.

          • holdstillnow

            My first thought went to all the girls lined up at One-Eyed Jack’s in Twin Peaks.

        • Sarah

          I don’t like the color, so the model’s not working for me, but I do notice she’s got the skirt all the way around, instead of Paula’s Pelvic Peepshow version, which is better.

          • demidaemon

            ????? Your comment is unclear on which is better. I assume you are not applauding Paula’s Peepshow because, if you were, I’m afraid you would need to be put into the fashion asylum.

          • Erica_Vuitton

            She’s saying the all the way around skirt is better. As would anyone with eyes.

          • demidaemon

            I figured that. I just had a moment of concern that I needed to share.

          • Sarah

            Misplaced participle? Dangling modifier? Sorry! Most assuredly, I am sane regarding the “better” in the adjective clause – NO peepshow is preferable 😉

          • demidaemon

            Misplaced modifier, I’m thinking.

        • marlie

          Seems like the tulle is attached all the way around on the model. Keeping it that way might have helped Paula just a *teensy* bit.

          • Erica_Vuitton

            Agreed!! But nooooooo she just had to slice it & hold it open so we could all see her inner thigh workout results. YES Paula we see we see.

      • SugarSnap108

        I’m with you. A sternum and linea alba covered by illusion netting will always read cheap to me.

        • saintebeuve

          Let’s hope you don’t have too many occasions to have to make that particular judgment! (But it’s one of those ‘hope for the best, expect the worst’ scenarios, I expect.)

        • kimmeister

          Linea alba sounds like it’s Jessica’s sister.

          • oohsparkley!

            I had to look it up. Learned something new today! (briefly: It’s the line separting the six pack or right and left halves If someone else doesn’t want to bother looking it up.)

  • Blair Sylvester

    points for an easily defined style. Also shouldn’t couture mean your reds match or are different enough that its clear they don’t match. Also red lace in that way on the bodice always makes me think of anatomy diagrams with the veins drawn in. so can we stop with that please

  • zenobar

    Why, it’s Zitheena of the Planet Boobulon!

    • frannyprof

      Zenobar, can I just say that I love your profile pic? Jerri Blank would *totally* utter those words.

      • zenobar

        Ha! I’m pretty sure it would sound like “Byeewb-yuh-lon.”

  • ojosazules

    Someone who hates her is about to be fired. Or she thinks it’s hilarious?

    • Beardslee

      I know I think she is hilarious. And she never disappoints.

  • EveEve

    She looks like a circus horse stunt rider

    • ojosazules

      Thank you for that. It helps me deal with it, like, ” oh right, ok! She’s a circus stunt rider!”

    • CelandineM

      Oh yes in my head I added a feathered sparkly headband and a galloping white horse when I saw these pictures.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    It’s like the fashion equivalent of people auditioning on American Idol with the worst voice in the world and then looking at the judges and expecting to hear praise. That’s what this is.

  • CB

    On another site (GFY maybe?), a commenter suggested that her chest looks like one of those fake bikini t-shirt coverups that you can buy at the beach…can’t unsee.

    • Orange Girl

      Yes! At first glance I thought it was part of the dress!

    • rkdgal

      That was my very first thought. You, too, can get the Paula Patton Awards Dress apron for your next Oscar party!

    • @Biting Panda

      That horrific -yet accurate assessment- added to her muscular physique and tilted wig looking hair, she seriously looks like a man who attempted drag, with no help from his peers.

      She needs a To Wong Foo intervention, stat.

      • demidaemon

        At least her make-up is better than Shangela’s and Phi Phi’s.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          The library is open!

          • demidaemon

            As it should be.

          • CelandineM

            So many kittens wore their reading glasses today.

        • Daisy Walker

          But her eyes are crazier than both of theirs combined.

        • TheOtherChristina

          I was going to say that her boobs look like an airbrushed beach body t-shirt and her lashes look like the work of Phi Phi O’Hara, but I see that my work here has already been done for me so if someone could just mix me a drink that would be super.

      • Danielle

        I would pay a lot of money for a To Wong Foo intervention for myself.

    • Katesymae

      YES. I totally see that. Her dress also kind of looks like she made an aborted attempted at an Incredible Hulk transformation.

  • carnush

    This makes me sad.

  • Jecca2244

    are those spanx peeking out??

    • alyce1213

      I hope so.

    • Sarah

      I believe there’s a bit of deodorant on display in armpit-town, too. (Adding to the ultra-classy look)

      • alyce1213

        I guess she’s unaware that there’s a product that goes on clear, not powdery.

      • marlie

        That’s another of her regular “issues.” Someone needs to tell her, stat.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I figured out why she always looks tacky: The woman doesn’t have enough sense/taste to look horrified or apologetic.

  • Jecca2244

    someone once told me that there are two types of women: women who make cheap clothing look like designer pieces (aka us ladies who have to shop at Target) and women who make expensive clothing look cheap….

    • demidaemon

      To be fair, her choices aren’t making it difficult.

  • @Biting Panda

    Have a seat Paula. Have a fucking seat.

    • poggi

      She should. But I am not sure that she can.

      • @Biting Panda


    • KateShouldBeWorking

      You know she’d go all Basic Instinct.

      • @Biting Panda

        And considering who she is married to, I wouldn’t want to be in that room without a Hazmat suit.

  • alyce1213

    Well, she’s outdone herself. This is one for the ages.

    • decormaven

      There needs to be a retrospective of her “style.” A cautionary tale, indeed.

  • Orange Girl

    If there’s more makeup on your boobs than on your face, something is wrong.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    WHY Paula? WHY did you seemingly HAVE TO slit the dress down the middle to show off the goods? Why for once couldn’t you just look a bit classy? I want it so badly for you.

  • barbarienne

    The dress is awful. But I’m even more concerned with whatever the hell that is on her head. Did she sleep in a wig and just go out in it like that?

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    I think it’s the posing and self-satisfied facial expressions that really take this to trolling level. I mean, this has to be some sort of elaborate joke she’s playing? Right???

  • frannyprof

    Crazy creepy eyes. Seriously. She needs to get those checked. Now.

    • Heather

      I think there’s something wrong with her eyelash glue.

  • CPK1

    NO. WORDS.

  • Anna

    It takes a special kind of woman to look an ice-dancing porn star. Really, it’s quite remarkable.

  • Ginny Ellsworth

    I pity the designer. The dress doesn’t look THAT bad with the good china curtains in place. Wait, yes it does. Nevermind, nothing to see here folks!

    • Carleenml

      Exactly, I don’t pity the designer but it IS funny that she found a way to make it worse. I know! Let’s RIP the front right off! Yeah, yeah, that’s it…

    • Blair Sylvester

      I think the phrase illusion netting is a misnomer unless the illusion the are referring to are designers being naive enough to think it isn’t obvious

  • Megan Au

    I see nipples….

  • Noah


  • Natalie


  • JauntyJohn

    Thank you, TLo. My wit quotient in general conversation has steadily risen as I’ve become a regular reader. “No drag queen worth her tuck” is now my new, value-based comparison saying.
    I love you guys.
    And Ms. Patton’s outfit is so stunningly unflattering that it almost looks like a cruel trick someone is playing on her.
    Or a lost bet.

    • She must be a gambling addict with very poor luck.

  • Kathy

    And she’s always wearing that stoned, “Hello, Sailor!” look on her face.

  • marlie

    THIS is the smooshed-boob dress I mentioned in the other Paula Patton thread. WHY? WHY does she do this to herself? That CAN’T be comfortable. And a skirt so tight that it’s riding up and about to show the good china? I can’t believe that she thinks this is OK.

    • It’s impressive how much she’s made them look like someone who photocopied their tits at the office Christmas party.

  • marlie

    Also, SOMEONE needs to stage an intervention and teach her how to pose. PLEASE. It wouldn’t help the overall look that much, but it would be one less thing to cringe about.

    • Sarah

      ^^THIS^^ Holy COW she’s a bad poser. Her hamming around kills me every time.

  • ovarB

    I can only quote “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and say “close up shop! close up shop!”

  • LeelaST

    Oh Ewwwwh! She didn’t try to sit in that, did she?

  • Shawn EH

    Gasp of horror, for real.

  • Danielle

    Has she reached “Of course” territory yet?

    • marlie

      Eons ago. But it’s amazing how much WORSE she looks every time she steps out in public.

    • filmcricket

      That was certainly my reaction.

    • DTLAFamilies

      To get to Of Course, you have to get past Oh God!

      • quiltrx

        With her, I always hit EWWWW!!!! before I get to ‘Of Course’. She’s like the world’s squickiest episode of Law & Order SVU.

  • Erica

    I know it’s only January, but for sure this is a strong contender for the top ten worst of the year, right? I mean, even accounting for her complete lack of any discernible taste, this is horrifying. Matthew McCanaughey’s wife Camilla couldn’t be this tacky on her worst day…which is saying a lot.

    • Imasewsure

      Let’s hold off… I think Paula can do “better”… she should have lots of entries this year for the Worst Dressed List… this one might.. just might.. get bumped

  • TwiddlyStun

    LOL I thought that was a painted inset in the dress. I’m guessing not really?

    • sweetlilvoice

      I thought she was actually a man…but I guess I was also wrong. Lordy. I saw Precious and I don’t even recognize her.

  • jilly_d

    Is it time for her to take over Lea’s “OF COURSE” title? Also, Paula, for Chrissakes, look at these pictures. Whatever you’re doing with your face….do anything but that.

  • Bexxx

    Of course.

  • Emily Dagger

    It takes a special lady to say “this boob-baring, illusion-netted, sheer-skirted, red-lace dress is too modest. Cut the overskirt up the front!”

    • conniemd

      Really, I noticed she cut out the sheer front and it makes the dress look out of balance in addition to something you’d wear in a boudoir.

    • demidaemon

      Indeed. Paula P. is a special lady.

  • AzSportsGirl

    Good grief. This calls to mind Katarina Witt’s “Battle of the CARMENs” costume from the 1998 Olympics in Calgary

    • schadenfreudelicious

      As a Calgarian I salute you!

      • Anna

        I second that! I live in Toronto now but I grew up there.

    • alyce1213

      Yes, who could forget the Carmens? And the Brians.

    • altalinda

      Katarina was far classier.

    • makeityourself

      You are so on-point with your reference. I’m looking forward to two weeks of costume-critiquing, as the world’s best skaters take to the ice. Hopefully Awards Season and the Olympics will not overwhelm TLo next month. Nothing beats their skating coverage — not the Miss Universe pageant; not even Chloe and her alters.

  • pepper76

    I do not understand. Anyone who’s seen Precious knows that this woman is absolutely gorgeous, especially with natural-looking makeup. And she gave a radiant, excellent performance that made me feel like she could have had big things coming her way as a dramatic actress. Why does this happen?? Can people still take her seriously after these appearances? She could be a star in her own right, but now I feel like she’s known as Robin Thicke’s hot but trashy wife. Too bad. It may not be too late, Paula! Get it together!

    • Melanie

      omg i had no idea she was blu rain in precious! i am shocked for all of the reasons you so succinctly described 🙁

  • Mismarker

    And the award for most unwarranted use of drag queen false cleavage contour makeup goes to….

    • AzSportsGirl

      What? There is such a thing?

      • demidaemon

        Of course. Gotta make the boobs look natural when they are hanging out to there.

        • AzSportsGirl

          The things I learn from this site.

      • Jacob Bowen

        There are MANY a youtube video that will teach you! Just google how to contour breasts!

  • Cheryl

    Why did she open the curtains? Way to cheese it up. I like this dress on the model. Besides being pancaked, her breasts look like they’ve been painted on. Very weird.

  • demidaemon

    WTH? Go home Paula. You’re drunk and showing off your cooch.

  • Matthew Davie

    It like she laid her bare chest down on the Xerox machine as part of an office prank.

  • Imasewsure

    Yes it’s an insult to our Drag sisters to call this drag… on a positive note, she just keeps getting worse which bodes well for our snarky future!

  • Garcia Loca

    We get it, Paula: Your husband is not screwing around on you. Can you stop with Coochie Couture now?

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Is it too early to start nominating people for your Top Twenty Worst Looks of 2014?

    • Garcia Loca

      Do you think she might win a double-medal for the “fighting-zebra-tigers”?

      • ShaoLinKitten

        I think she is single-handedly trying to take all twenty slots, and is getting started on this ambitious project early.

        • @Biting Panda

          She’s got her sights on Fug Madness and she’s not going to stop until she takes it all the way home.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            She’s got a high bar to jump over after Bieber’s 2013 win, but she is certainly going to make him work harder than he’s ever worked in his life before.

          • I feel like the Biebs hasn’t been defending his title though. Paula is a very strong contender.

  • NMMagpie

    Too late; I can’t unsee this. She’s in a class of tacky all by herself.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    She never lets me down. If she wears something tasteful and flattering- get right with whatever you believe in, because the end is nigh.

  • nowlo

    The bodice looks like trompe l’oeil. It’s uncanny.

  • hellkell

    At first I thought those tits were airbrushed on, like one of those tacky shirts you can get at any honky-tonk beach resort. She never leaves home without crazy eyes, does she?

    • lobsterlen

      YES! Booby tshirt from Panama City Florida. She should just be done with it and get her name airbrushed on the bottom.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Oh Paula. What the fuck are you doing, sweetie? Is Robin brainwashing you? Is that what this is?

  • Rand Ortega

    Somebody hold me. I has a sad.

  • Heather Hammer

    I have been waiting all day for your review of this. It wouldn’t be as bad if it was actually in her size.

  • stubbornthoughts

    It’s really just her, because on the model, this dress is gorgeous.

  • decormaven

    So distraught by the rendering of the dress I almost missed the putty pumps. That’s the capper on this trainwreck for sure.

    • marlie

      This time, the silly putty pumps are the least of her concerns. They might actually be the best part of this whole look.

  • Trickytrisha

    Sleaze factor is off the charts.

  • quiltrx

    BWAHAHAHA! I can’t stop laughing. Her boobs look like a tween’s painting of what he thinks boobs look like.
    So, in that last, pic, she actually REALLY looks like a drag queen. Maybe she and Robin are trolling us all???

  • Kimmu

    Why does this woman even have a career?

  • andi56

    Is that a shadow, or are her black Spanx showing? This woman is clearly insane. And is Spanx plural or singular?

    • kimmeister

      I shudder at the idea of someone offering to sell her one Spank.

      • andi56

        Ha haaa! The designer is the one who needs to be Spanked.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    I said it the other day and this just clinches it…she is gonna take Fug Madness this year by a landslide!

  • MzzPants

    Sweet Jesus, this is awful.

  • EEKstl

    Now she’s just pissing me off.

  • KT


  • LJCdoc

    Plus no drag queen worth her tuck would ever paint on her pancake boobs so very badly, even if she were to wear pancake boobs.

  • unbornfawn

    Her boob area looks like a picture of a boob area on a bad T-shirt.

  • A cry for help.

  • This dress on the model just doesn’t look nearly as tacky. It looks like very formal Valentines Day lingerie but nowhere near the level of tacky that Paula brings to it. The boob squishing & contouring is beyond horrible. Does this woman own a mirror? Plus I always hate her hair.

  • MoHub

    Oh, good Gawd. She will never get it right, will she?

  • Tracy_Flick

    This dress looks like it came from the women’s underwear display at Walmart in February. All the cutest girls in Bentonville will have one.

    • sagecreek

      Hee! All the cutest girls in Bentonville are on the bus out of town as soon as they turn 18 🙂

  • E. D.

    She is just trolling, rest assured.

  • Pennymac


  • sagecreek

    So easy to mix up the Grammys with the Adult Video Awards.

  • Nika E

    Ahhhhh! My eyes!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    MR. B3 just looked at this and said “WTF????” To which I say,Amen.

  • shaziz

    Things are slow at the brothel.

  • Carly Clement

    my boobs hurt even thinking about this dress!!!! and I thought her zebra/lion boob mess of a dress would be the worst look of the night…. this is just tacky!!!

  • Lisa Hager

    The dress is bad enough, but what is up with that hair?

  • wisdomy


  • raeb23

    WTH!? a boob window & crotch curtains – weren’t sparkly, zebra print, lion-heads tacky enough?

  • MissMapp

    Anyone else immediately flash to She By Sheree at the sight of this?

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Go home Paula, you’re drunk.

  • Can we order her up another facial expression? Because tacky is one thing, but the constant MAMA’S GOT IT GOING ON loopy drunkface mug just pushes it over the edge for me.

  • Aidan B

    I’m sorry, did she have the front of the skirt removed? Why? For the love of God, why??
    And I don’t think her boobs could possibly look worse. Egads.

    • LJCdoc

      The better to see her hoo-ha, my dear.

  • amaranth16

    Can she just go away?

  • SophieCollier

    I can’t stop staring at her manly shoulders. Like, very manly….

  • MilaXX

    She so pretty and she always looks mice in her movies, but in real life? Gurl!

  • SierraDelta

    On the plus side, there are no big cats glaring at each other across her exposed sternum today.

    But is that black shapewear peeking coyly out over her left thigh?

  • IamstillAnonymous

    Her chest looks like a painted T-shirt.

  • Slowfish57

    And the Award Is: Best Impersonation By A Female of A Female Impersonator.

  • sockandaphone

    yesterday I found out she’s married to Robin Thicke and literally it all makes sense now

  • kimmeister

    1. That is not a dress for someone with muscular shoulders.
    2. Her look for the day was apparently, “doodads facing each other on my clavicles, separated by illusion netting that gives me a mammogram.”

  • boweryboy

    Wow. She just fucks it up every time, doesn’t she? Also, it’s too small. Her boobs shouldn’t be squished against the tit window like that. Also also, why did she alter to dress to have vagina curtains? The runway version is so much better, but then again anything is so much better if she isn’t wearing it.

    She’s gross. There. I said it.

  • Gatto Nero

    Overwrought and tasteless.
    The dress, too.

  • Dagney

    Dear god how frustrating. Beautiful woman. KNOCK out body. Clearly she is in the gym and doing some hard work. HOW does she manage to look sooo painfully goofy? Tailors. exist. People. with taste. live in this world. Paula darling, fire your current staff and get some good people who understand you are not a size 0 and will dress you properly.

  • Qitkat

    Just how effing ugly/tacky does a dress have to be for someone to declare Hell NO!

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter


  • shiibaru

    something about the way she tilts her head in photos always makes her look … what’s the word. disingenuous? kind of like a plastic doll? but I actually liked the way she looked in MI:4?? i don’t know what my feelings are doing

  • CommentsByKatie

    Oh my god. I can’t believe they let her do that to that dress.

  • Joey Melliza

    she looks kind a cross-eyed no

  • Tracy Walker

    At first I thought it was like those tee shirts where they draw the boobs on. Like a Tuxedo Tee. Anyway, it’s fug.

  • RussellH88

    The books look drawn on.

    I can’t stop looking at those drawn on boobs.

  • Diego!

    RuPaul’s Drag Race 2014 winner… Honey… WTF is THAT???? Your tits are wearing make up too??? You are a fine actor, get some posing lessons ASAP. You NEED them. Truly. Now get out of that ugly dress

  • TippiH

    The top part of this reminds me of one of those t-shirts you get at a beach souvenir shop with the bikini (and cleavage) airbrushed on.

    • Dan_In_NYC

      It’s awful, but at least I was going to declare it a little cheeky had the middle been the airbushed boobs. As it isn’t that, I am not a fan at all. All I can say, is that she has a clearly-defined personal style. I’d define it as Mega-hiddy, but that’s just me.

  • KayEmWhy

    This is what years of Robin Thicke does to you.

  • mlle

    All I see is shimmery illusion netting. Besides, any dress that causes people to think first about fashion tape and nipple covers should be constrained to the runway.

  • Fred Vaughn

    Hell no.

  • save_the_hobbit

    Those boobs….look like they’ve been drawn on a tee-shirt. I’m so confused by the boobs.

  • MannahattaMamma

    so a person assembles this dress/bad curtain on her body and says “oh hell yeah, I look like a zilion bucks…” ? really? what kind of meds does a person have to be on to think these things?

  • Huntsmanfan

    First Robin Thicke dresses like Beetlejuice and now Paula wears Lydia’s wedding dress? At least they have their Halloween costumes picked out.

    There is no way to make red lace look anything other than cheap and sleazy.

    Holy. Cow.
    Just why she took a borderline peignoir and decided it wasn’t tacky enough… and then came up with this solution…no.. freaking.. way…
    that’s not counting the cheapest off color shoes, the lopsided hair-do or the reflective underarm antiperspirant. Or that u.t.i. not fazed gaze.

    TLo, I’m in total agreement. What is she thinking?? This is cray-cray. And that posing she’s dong is ridiculous. Nauseating all around.

    Pancake boobs! Lol! Girl is just as tacky as they come, bless her. And that eye make-up she insists on wearing – it’s downright scary.

    Does anyone else see her Spanx hanging out? Just to add insult to injury.
