GTNYD: Julianne Moore in Prabal Gurung at the “Non-Stop” LA Premiere

Posted on February 25, 2014

Oh, Julianne. We thought we’d settled all this.


Julianne Moore attends the premiere of “Non-Stop” at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles, California in a Prabal Gurung dress paired with Gianvito Rossi ‘Carey’ black leather pointy pumps.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 Collection

We thought we’d finally taught you to stick to the sleek and simple and leave the complicate frippery for … we don’t know… the Chloe Sevignys of the world, we suppose.  Girl, That’s Not Your Dress. Let’s get you in some Roland Moret or Calvin Klein, mkay?

    • Kate Andrews

      I suggest a new category for Julianne: Girl, That’s NEVER Your Dress.

      • sojourneryouth

        Preach! I adore this woman. I would like to show a picture of her to anyone who want to mess with her face–I mean, bitch is damn near dewy. But MY GOD does she wear some weird, ugly stuff sometimes. I really want to L’Wren Scott her STAT.

      • PhillyDeb


    • another_laura

      Jeebus. This woman clearly has a blind spot.

      • twigg

        her torso?

    • Rhonda Shore

      It’s like Beach Towel Bingo! (at least the upper half)

      • what not

        Yep, like eyelet terry cloth.

    • Lucía Gavello

      She looks like she’s wearing a bunch of rumpled inside-out clothes from the hamper as a top. Shoes are killer though.

      • janierainie

        It doesn’t even look like towels! Less design than towels. Like the lining of the hamper. Agree with the shoes too.

    • Aidan B

      This dress has multiple personalities, so Chloe many-faces Sevigny is definitely perfect for it. Julianne, bless her, looks lost and afraid.

    • J.W.

      It sort of looks like part of a costume for the Mummy.

    • B_C_J

      This dress belongs in a trash can.

    • KT

      Gah! She is so beautiful and lean – why does she like to fuck up her shape so much?? Is this a social experiment? I mean, way to make Bed Bath and Beyond your bitch, but did you have to show your work on the red carpet, of all places? Great shoes, though.

    • charlotte

      Girl, that is not your wrap.

    • Jessica Freeman

      And her stylist had been doing so good lately. This is just all sorts of hell no. Certainly not her worst, but bad regardless. The skirt and the top are equal opportunity offenders.

    • Alyssa

      This woman really loves her a complicated dress…and they rarely look good on her! She is so beautiful, she deserves better!!!

    • LaSylphide

      Huh? It looks like it kind of wants to be a toga, but doesn’t know how.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      I see someone TP’d Julianne on the way to the premiere.

      • demidaemon

        See my comment around here somewhere. She is apparently having a TP moment.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Artfully arranged bed sheets…this is no one’s dress!

      • alyce1213

        Maybe it’s one of those “trick” dresses that you can wrap around you in eleventy different ways.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      That looks like an infinity terry cloth towel. What on earth…? And then the bottom looks like she’s trying to wrap a too small towel around her behind. All of this is terrible. It’s terrible on the model too.

    • Sarah

      The COLORS are good for her. And if you jammed an infant in that top, it might even make a tiny bit of sense.

    • padma sallah

      I dont think that is ANYBODY’s dress. The top portion looks like a towel swathed around her.

      • 3boysful

        I think it only works if you have Scarlet O’Hara’s 17″ waist–look at the model. But it’s still an ugly dress.

        • marlie

          I don’t even think it “works” on the model. It’s a hiddy dress. But I certainly see what you’re saying.

        • AnneElliot

          Even the model looks unhappy. I agree, that’s nobody’s dress. Weird fabric up top and too much of it, not enough on the bottom. That skirt is just awful.

    • willworktomorrow

      Agree about the dress, but her shoes are KILLER.

      • kimmeister

        I’m impressed at her ability to pull off not just one ankle strap, but multiple ankle straps, and not look stumpy.

    • MilaXX

      That’s a FMO look as well. You have to be tall & thin to pull off that much criss cross body covering. At least the shoes aren’t bad.

      • marlie

        BULKY criss-cross body covering.

    • Musicologie

      As the mother of a nearly-seven-month-old, I can only see a Moby wrap on top.

      • Tracy_Flick

        I was just about to post something about carrying a baby in there. Very wrap-like.

        • shirab

          And I just did, before I read further down. Happy to know that I was not alone.

    • Kate

      It’s a beach towel over a bathing suit over a hastily grab-wrapped sarong. She looks like a harried mother at a Midwestern waterpark.

    • TerryMarie

      That looks seriously terrible. I can’t imagine it looking good on anyone (even the model doesn’t look good).

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      Sari gone wrong…horribly wrong.

    • AuroraB423


    • demidaemon

      Did anyone see the dress she wore on Chelsea Lately last night? It was hideousness comparable to this one. I couldn’t even concentrate on the interview because of her dress. It looked like someone took a perfectly fine cocktail dress and sewed toilet paper onto the bodice and asymetrically on one side down to the hem. Awful. Julianne is apparently back to her fug ways.

      • Sarah

        I just went and looked it up to see what you meant. It was definitely weird. I wonder if she is a fan of modernist art and that’s what attracts her to these looks that skirt the avant-garde and just end up looking weird.

        • demidaemon

          Yeah, my description doesn’t really do it justice, to be sure. It was even worse in motion. Every time Julianne lifted her arms to gesture, the TP ruffle would twitch and flutter. Really distracting. And awkward.

      • alyce1213

        I was hoping someone would mention it. The big ruffle that spiraled around her dress was hysterical. She’s back to her old tricks. I thought she was doing better for one brief shining moment a few months back, but no… she really has bad taste.

        • demidaemon

          Maybe she has a new stylist. Maybe her current one could only keep the crazy dresses off the rack for so long. Maybe she’s off her meds.

        • demidaemon

          Hysterical isn’t exactly the word I would use. I was thinking more along the line of WTF, although, viewed in a certain light, it could be hysterical. I was actually in awe of Chelsea’s ability to ignore it, considering her well known ADD and foot-in-mouth syndrome.

      • @Biting Panda

        Saw that. And she was sporting her beloved black, bear trap shoes too. Of course.

        • demidaemon

          You know, I almost forgave the shoes, considering the dress. But thank you for correcting me and reminding me that Chelsea’s shoes were the only fabulous footwear on that stage.

    • Sofia Bentivoglio

      i can’t help it: all i see is her beauty; hair and makeup are perfect; shoes are gorgeous on her; and the dress does not bother me. COULD the dress be better? yes, but i still think she looks gorgeous. i am blinded by my love for her, i admit it.

    • mjude


    • Blair Sylvester

      Girl that’s not your stylist ?

    • shirab

      I’m getting “luxe baby sling.”

      • jw_ny

        sling, nursing top/blanket, and spit-up cloth…all in one. This is Kerry Washington’s dress! j/k XD

    • filmcricket

      Can we not introduce this woman to Victoria Beckham? I feel like there’d be just enough visual interest to keep Julianne from being bored, but the essentially simple shapes and bold colours would work wonders for her. Am I wrong?

      • Sarah

        Nope. Sounds good to me.

      • Evan

        Actually, the new Gucci collection might work well for her since it’s very Vicky-esque.

    • Pepper Collins

      The top looks like a poorly wrapped towel.

    • Gatto Nero

      If she must wear black and white (not her best colors), she should stick with Tom Ford. This just looks messy.
      And she’s lovely otherwise, so how sad is this?

    • Adrianna Grężak

      Wow, that did not translate off the runway at all

    • crash1212

      Julianne, you deserve better girl.

    • decormaven

      I think I’ll step across the street from this RC and drown myself over at the “Any Beer $3″ bar. This is so NOT her dress, or anyone else’s, for that matter.

    • BobStPaul

      I don’t think that’s anyone’s dress.

    • jw_ny

      Based on what we know of her unusual taste and past unconventional RC appearances, I’d say that IS her dress. She’s a quirky one… 😉

    • boweryboy

      This dress makes me mad.

    • StillGary

      i want to see the rest of the asylum dresses in the collection.

    • jilly_d

      That is not Anyone’s dress.

    • marlie

      Why does she keep doing this to herself?!?! This is a hideous dress, Julianne! Stop it with the bedsheet-as-dress dresses!!

    • CatherineRhodes

      That so-called dress is o incredibly ugly. Why or why? The shoes are cute, however.

    • Violentcello

      Pretty sure my sister and I made dresses just like this out of beach towels when we were kids. Except ours had My Little Pony on them, which makes them better.

    • Kent Roby

      “NO, Sweetie, this is the premiere; it’s not the WRAP party!”

    • Akemi

      …did she put it on correctly? It looks like a mess.

    • Tatiana Luján

      Julianne and her undying love for frankendresses, gotta love her.

    • ReadBarbara

      Once again, she’s wearing a dress with a top that looks like she’s smuggling something into the event. Or she’s post-op with a very careless nurse. Doesn’t flatter her at all.



    • ShaoLinKitten

      Oh this is NO ONE’S DRESS.

    • MaggieMae

      I cannot understand how beautiful people get talked into wearing Prabal Gurung.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Costume, middle school production of Julius Caesar.

    • E. D.

      A longer, more even hemline would have really helped.

    • stubbornthoughts

      To be fair, that isn’t anyone’s dress. That isn’t a dress. That’s a bunch of hospital protective paper wrapped around a woman.

    • SophieCollier

      That is not anyone’s dress. It is a crap dress. Let it be forgotten.

    • Janice Bartels

      Girl, that Is my 8-year-old’s dress… When she is raiding the linen closet to play fashion designer.

    • Imasewsure

      Bride of Frankenstein’s take on the DVF wrap dress???????

    • livesarah

      That’s just an ugly excuse for a dress. That’s nobody’s dress. How could anyone look in the mirror and then leave the house dressed in that thing?

    • HeatherMcIlrath

      that is my initial reaction and i’m sticking to it.

    • cocohall

      Julianne Moore, the consummate professional, loses luggage on the way to the premiere, and clearly inspired by that other Julie (Andrews), grabs her hotel room sheets and curtains and creates herself an intriguing little wrap number for the RC. Well done, you!

    • GeoDiva

      I admire her for at least taking fashion risks, but the issue is that they NEVER work out.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      What a bizarre garment. I kind of like the print of the skirt though.

    • Columbinia

      There are very few people who could wear the top half of this dress and even fewer who could wear the bottom.

    • MissAmynae

      That’s not ANYONE’s dress. ugh. mishmash city.

    • judybrowni

      The Mummy, on date night.

    • quiltrx

      I’m with you guys…I thought Julianne had worked past all this!
      She’s too beautiful and talented to walk around in crap fashion…

    • Dagney

      for fuck’s sake.

    • elzatelzabelz

      That is F-U-G. I’m not sure it’s anyone’s dress.

    • Tarquin

      STOP with the “mkay”, puh-lease!

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        STOP with the “puh-lease,” mkay?

        • Tarquin

          Oh gents, you do make me laugh!

    • Clash D

      Good golly she looks like she’s wrapped in beach towels.

    • Lilyana_F

      What is that even? Butt-ugly.

    • Zippypie

      I just was in the audience of Chelsea Lately when both she and Michelle Dockery were guests. Julianne had on a black/white print shift with friggin long white fringe zigzagging all over it. Honestly, I think she’s legally blind. Charming as hell, excellent actress, but blind. This is yet another brilliant example.

    • FashionableLena

      Well, it’s not Lanvin.
