Pity the poor non-nominees who have to fight for the red carpet scraps at the end of awards season, darlings. It’s not a pretty sight. Look at her face: “I fucking hate this so hard.”

Oh, girl. You deserve better than this. C’mere. You need a hug.

  • mary mary quite contrary

    wtf’s a “cobie smulders”?? i guess i’m old.

    • MilaXX

      How I Met Your Mother and The Avengers

    • Dam_Angel

      Cold shoulders?

  • Alicia

    She looks too stoned to care, really.

    • JauntyJohn

      That’s what I thought!
      Seriously, I looked at her and my first thought was, “Woah, girl, you are BAKED.”

      • sienna elm

        me too!

        • Akemi

          Can you blame her?

        • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

          yep – exactly my thought. Maybe she had to take the edge off her disappointing dress.

      • what not

        For her sake, I hope she is.

    • miscorrections

      I immediately thought, “Cobie, dear, go home and eat Cheetos. You clearly want to.”

      • Rhonda Shore

        or one of those new ben and jerry pints with a huge blob of fudge running through the center…now that’s a core workout i can endorse!!!

        • RedRaven617

          Was just reading about those! OMG, I can’t wait”

        • Alicia

          The Karamel Sutra is really good – that’s the only one of the B&J Core flavours we have in common.

    • KinoEye

      Mad Men fans: “I’m Cobie Smulders, and I want to smoke some marijuana.”

    • kt

      Out of her gourd. Which makes me kind of happy for her. Whatevs.

    • Michelle Gennari

      Ahhh, that’s why the left eye is looking like it’s out of town!

  • tereliz

    Go home, Cobie, you’re drunk. (Seriously, I love you, girl, but WTF? How can someone so gorgeous look so bedraggled at a VANITY FAIR party?)

    • Alyssa

      She must have seen the outfit her stylist got her and said “if I have to go, I’m not going sober”.

      • demidaemon

        An admirable choice, when considering the options.

  • zenobar

    A browner lipstick and a few more choppy layers and you’ve got you some Bad 90s in full effect.

    Poor lady, she’s much too pretty for this Aniston parody.

  • marlie

    Cobie looks a little… out of it. Which is probably a good thing considering the AWFUL outfit she’s wearing.

  • Jessica Freeman

    No girl, don’t go walking around looking proud of this nonsense.

  • hughman

    Sad Betty Rubble.

    • 3boysful

      I was JUST going to say that those short asymmetrical skirts make me think Flintstones!

  • Sarah

    Too bad, ‘cuz the top looks nice – navy’s good for her. Scrolling down, however, we find that she is wearing a combo office wear/cavewoman ensemble. Nay.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Her face says stoned, but her outfit says drunk.

    • demidaemon

      Why not both? Sometimes, one is not enough.

      • sagecreek

        Awww, I had some of those weekends back in 1982. Good times!

  • MilaXX

    Okay this asymmetrical hem micro trend has already worked my nerves. Can the winds shift so this can be over? She looks a mess.

    • Alicia

      I’d like it to take the bare midriff trend with it, and close the door on the way out.

      • Alyssa

        Can that wind also take away jumpsuits?

      • Jacob Bowen

        AMEN. I have seen enough female stomach skin to fill a lifetime.

      • Monabel

        Sternums – begone.

    • filmcricket

      If the winds shift on this one we’ll be seeing the good china.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Regarding her shoes — I’m really glad to see less and less of the platform hooves some starlets wear, but what is going on with these strappy little things? They are all over the place!!!

  • Kent Roby

    We are officially being punked; that’s the only explanation for this look, yellow mosquito netting, and elastic waistband tennis skirts.

  • Synnae

    I like the top but what is that skirt??? Also this outfit could have done with a stronger shoe, or at least one that had clearly visible straps.

    • lunchcoma

      If she must wear that, I’d say a stronger shoe is absolutely necessary. Maybe one in a color? She needs something to make the pleated navy skirt look a little younger.

  • Kent Roby

    Every single one of us Bitter Kittens has a number of (inexpensive non-label) outfits in our closets that would be more impressive on a Vanity Fair RC than this. No excuse.

    • lunchcoma

      Agreed. At some point, it’s a better option to say no to the free clothes and to deal with the shame of wearing a gorgeous off the rack dress.

    • Imasewsure

      I just came from the gym and my outfit qualifies. YIPES

  • French_Swede

    Wow! She reminds me of Jennifer Connelly in these pictures.

    The outfit looks like something made in a junior high home economics class.

    • Heather

      omg me too! thought she was jennifer c.

  • quiltrx

    This is unflattering, and makes her somehow look old at this ‘young Hollywood’ event.

  • jeneria

    I just flipped through a Marie Clare that featured that same asymmetry and crop top look. Supposedly it’s the in thing. I think it looks haphazard. Why can’t this woman dress better? She’s gorgeous, funny, and seems super cool.

  • strangebride

    I actually went “Uh! Oh god!” when I saw it.

  • lunchcoma

    I have limited amounts of pity. If this sad, droopy ensemble really brings down her mood, she could buy something off the rack. There are lots of interesting designers who I suspect would be within her price range.

    On a different note, I really wish that belly slash would go away. This may or may not have anything to do with my decided lack of abs.

  • laura

    How I imagine the conversation went:

    Stylists: [holds up cropped, asymm monstrosity] You’re wearing this.
    Cobie: [blank stare] I need shots. A lot of them.

  • Lilithcat

    Sorry, I don’t know, either.

    And brass knuckles?

    • laura

      That might be the only part I like in this ensemble. At least they have some character.

    • twigg

      I hope they were used on whoever got her this dress.

  • Janet B

    High-low is now asymmetrical?

    • jeneria

      Technically, no. The skirts looked like they were unevenly wrapped, creating asymmetry. I thought they were all ugly because they all looked sloppy.

  • B_C_J

    If this is what was left in terms of free clothes, buying off the rack with a blindfold on would have been preferable.

  • Shawn EH

    Was there a cocktail brunch?

  • Imasewsure

    It’s ok… she’s super high… she won’t remember this if we agree not to remind her!

    • KT

      she is stoned as FUCK!

  • a_liking

    I’ve been watching a lot of Girls recently, so my first thought was JESSA. seriously, this is what Jessa would wear to the red carpet if she was forced to be respectable, complete with the attitude.

  • SierraDelta

    Her toes are not amused by those shoes.

    • sagecreek

      My feet curled up instinctively in agony when I scrolled down and saw those sandals.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Girl You Are Not Chloe Sevigny.

  • rage_on_the_page

    She looks high or something! Goddammit, Scherbatsky. Pull it together.

  • Gatto Nero

    This looks like a Project Runway reject by Afterschool Special (Helen something) or the girl who made nothing but crop tops (take your pick).

    • demidaemon

      Maybe it’s the product of Helen and Alexandria’s (that’s the one you are thinking of) hate-designing after Dom forced them to make up. I don’t know; I like my stories. :)

  • greenwich_matron

    I immediately thought “peevish Betty Rubble”

  • demidaemon

    I always know something isn’t right when a designer or house won’t cop to having designed it. Clearly, the “I fucking hate this so hard” has been going on since this “outfit” was spawned.

  • Jane Donuts

    I’m offended by every bit of this.

  • bertkeeter

    No excuse!

  • kimmeister

    Cobie, look into some eye makeup.

  • Anonymous

    She’s clearly planning to punch the lights out of someone with those frightening rings, and didn’t want to ruin a better dress.

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    Think she’s been to the medical marijuana tent; a lot.

  • Kane

    She & her outfit were playing a drinking game in the hours leading up to this event. The outfit lost: it had been a dress with a pencil skirt before the vodka shots were lined up.

  • GeoDiva

    I’m sure she had quite the hangover the next morning.

  • amanda siegelson

    two things:
    one: i am absolutely loathing this new “lopsided skirt bottom” thing that i’ve been seeing in so many of the recent looks.
    two: if cobie really was thinking to herself, ‘i hate this so bad’, then go out and fucking BUY an outfit you like. you have enough money, cobie. even some of us mere mortals have to BUY our clothes. that way, we don’t have to take the leftovers that we don’t like.

  • CeeQ

    Holy shit, this is terrible. Is she high? She needs to be. That is a disaster of an outfit.

  • KinoEye

    Good to see that popular new “herbal” treatment is working out, Cobie.

  •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Tell me they didn’t style her hair asymmetrically to match her dress. Horrible! *screams into fists*

  • livesarah

    Better to dig up some old thing from the bottom of her wardrobe than wear something as ugly as that.

  • J.W.

    This ‘outfit’ made me feel she had given up but had to fulfill a contract. And for some bizarre {sp?} reason, it made me think of the movie “One Million Years B.C.”. This makes me very confused…

    • PastryGoddess

      Are YOU high?

    • J. Preposterice

      No, I can see the One Million Years BC thing. makes total sense to me.

      • J.W.

        Thank you!

  • Truthiness2U

    Sorry, I have to go with a trend but really…is she high? She looks it, and that would explain the outfit AND the hair. Hmmm.
    I mean, I’m all for legalized pot…except when it involves making such terrible outfit, and hair choices. Then it’s just say no to drugs! …when getting dressed for Red Carpet events.

  • J.W.


  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    Homegirl is trippin balls high.

  • Carleenml

    is she high?

  • Michelle Gennari

    What’s going on with that lazy left eye?

  • Victoria Pavlova

    She looks like she’s coming down with a nasty cold and took some anti-flu shit. Or maybe she’s just high.

  • antonialee

    Ugh, I actually cringed!

  • somebody blonde

    Someone’s been hitting the magic brownies a little hard. Or maybe she hung out with Bob Costas long enough to get pink eye.

  • Lilyana_F

    I’d get high too, if I had to wear this in public.
