Lena Headey in Dolce&Gabbana at the “300: Rise of an Empire” LA Premiere

Posted on March 05, 2014

Outside of the lady who inspired the term, there is no celeb-lady we can think of who pulls such massive Jolies every time she steps out on the red carpet than Lena here. She’s so dramatic in her good looks and yet this is all she can manage for her film premiere:

Nothing here is wrong or terrible. It’s just that nothing is serving to really set off her natural looks. It’s all kind of dull. And Queen Cersei showing off her back tats and a killer ring at her film premiere should never look dull, darlings. She needs a stylist who’ll really shake her up.

      Well….the ring is cool. Nothing else really grabbing my attention here.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      She should call in her style team to a meeting in her throne room and whisper “All stylists must die” and cast fear into their hearts.

    • Ginger

      Well…her manicure looks about as good as mine (not good) and she needs lotion…especially on her tats. STARS! They’re just like us!

      • MilaXX

        Why would you try to pimp a ring with your nails looking like that?

        • decormaven

          Contractural arrangement. “Feature the ring!”

    • Sarah

      A belt and some shoes with color might’ve helped, but it looks like she’s in a commercial for that ring. Like: On Sale This Week at Kohls! Sparrow Ring! HOT!

      • Gingercat

        If only it was from Kohl’s! That ring is 13,000 bucks.

    • Victoria Anzalone

      Yay to the ring. Nay to the “LOOK AT MY RING.”

      • Alyssa

        BeMeOrDoMeBingo…”(Stars must ensure) items lent to them for the occasion make it into every photograph, no matter the angle”. Lena here doesn’t try to be nonchalant about it…you want me to show off the ring, fine!

    • Bill Craven

      Very punk girl gone suburban; I love the shoes and I would die for a necklace to go with the swallow; or something. That dress just puts me to sleep.

    • Supernumerary

      I’m just happy to see her natural hair color. I love her as Cersei, but have so much hate for the Lannister blonde wig.

    • Janet B

      All I know about her is she likes tattoos and things with wings.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      LIPSTICK. Fucksake woman, get some bloody LIPSTICK.

      Meanwhile, kudos to every makeup artist and digital retoucher she has ever worked with – I had no idea she was hiding all that ink.

      • sojourneryouth

        I think some of that ink is new. The birds are new, I’m pretty sure. They are well-done, if a bit random.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Lena Headey is crazy gorgeous and gives sultry bitchface like no one else. People should be lining up to style her outside of the “Bitchy Queen Buttercup” drag she wears on QoT.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Here’s my tattoos. Here’s my ring. Kthanxbye.

    • MilaXX

      Your ring should not be the most interesting thing about your look. I can buy that dress at any department store. I expect better of celebs.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I have a very similar one in green. I wore it to Disney World. Enough said.

    • gabbilevy

      I take comfort in knowing that one month from tomorrow, Lena will be strapped back into her Queen Cersei drag and the world will be a better place for it. This, however, is disappoint.

      • Coolekat

        Can’t wait for GOT premier. Have given up on ever reading book six.

        • gabbilevy

          You shut your mouth. I’m holding out hope.

        • AnneElliot

          I may give up on GOT after reading the last book. Very disappointing.

    • shirab

      Those eyes! Imagine her in Idina’s Oscar dress, or something else in that shade of green, on her instead of this uninspired thing with the zipper pull sticking out. Missed opportunity.

    • MW

      Well at least we know she REALLY likes birds.

    • http://medium.com/@directordanic Danielle Colman

      Someone put this lady in something with a plunging neck, no back, and a shape that oozes sex appeal stat. Tattoos that gorgeous should be accessorised with a dress that shows them off properly.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      It’s a shame, because I love her to death and she’s looking all boring and standard.

    • mshesterp

      And those tats seem a little juvenile to me. I expected better from Lena. She was in 300! She’s Queen Cersei! She’s fierce as shit! The butterflies and flowers detract from the entire effect. Bleh.

    • mrspotts66

      i’m bored.
      that dress. *yawn*
      how do you function with a hummingbird on your hand. or whatever it is.
      “here. hold this while i wipe.”
      just no.

      • Qitkat


      • MoHub

        I felt that! Ouch!

    • decormaven

      That’s just a standard party dress on a woman whose look demands a more dramatic gown. If there was a stylist involved with this, he/she was asleep at the wheel.

    • tired_mommy

      Wow! Wouldn’t have know it was Cersei!
      PS I had that hairstyle in 1989.
      PSS Am loving that she doesn’t seem to botox!

    • Calinda_L

      “Nothing wrong or terrible’ — EXCEPT for the tack-tack-tacky way she’s holding up her hand like it’s a dead fish. That is not the way a lady should present her hand (Cercei would be aghast!).

    • KinoEye

      That pretty diamond bird is the only worthwhile thing here. The rest is a big ol’ bunch of BLAH.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I am choosing to believe that Cersei is vogueing in the third shot.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter


    • aquababe

      On a side note, she is going to be a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race next week! I know she isn’t her character but I would love to see some Cersei disdain when a queen walks out looking busted. Queens, meet the real queen.

    • Coolekat

      Ring looks like mocking jay. Confusing.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Do all Lena’s visit the same tattoo artist??…

      • Sabin

        Ooh, good one.

    • Qitkat

      I am not familiar with Parulina jewelry, but google images shows me some bee-you-tiful pieces.

    • WendyD

      Am I the only one thinking, “Mockingjay, Part 1 isn’t out until next year right?”

    • nannypoo

      She’s pretty but I hate the tattoos.

    • Imasewsure

      I think she is seeing classic but edgy Audrey Hepburn here and we are seeing so much less… looks like a pretty dress you can buy at the mall…

    • demidaemon

      Well, that ring is the only part I like. The rest looks like she just woke up and threw on a wrapped sheet.

    • icm

      tats look tacky , dress is kind of boring for her

    • Trickytrisha

      Having to choose your clothes to show off your tattoos is pretty restricting. It’s a nice dress, she looks nice, the ring is nice. Way too much nice.

    • Gatto Nero

      She’s gorgeous, but the dress is a snooze, and it doesn’t seem to hang on her properly.
      I can’t tell if that’s supposed to be a hi-low hem or it’s just a mistake.

      • quiltrx

        I think there are too many inches’ difference for it to be a mistake in how it’s hanging. I totally agree that the dress needs to commit one way or the other.

    • snarkykitten

      oooooh it’s Ma-Ma!

    • Susan Velazquez

      Cool ring but needs a necklace.

    • quiltrx

      That’s a really nice dress for some other event. She should have gone WAY more dramatic. And combed her hair. And put lotion on her elbows.

    • All_Hail_Great_Satin

      This definitely isn’t the best look, but I love how she doesn’t seem to give a shit about posing. Instead she’s like “look at my ring, bitches.” I just love her.

    • anotherkate

      And not a single fuck was given.
      Honestly, I kind of love that attitude. The obvious ring-flash is about as close to flipping the bird as you can get without actually doing it. But I do agree that someone that pretty (and, apparently, THAT AWESOME) deserves to look incredible.

    • GeoDiva

      That dress looks like it was bought in the dress department at Nordstrom’s.

    • marlie

      Such a gorgeous woman, and such a boring, lazily put-together outfit. Queen Cerseri still looks like she could murder you with just a look, though.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Hair and makeup pros would help too. SERIOUSLY.

    • Badriya Al-Badi’a

      While I agree that this could be a lot more fabulous, I do like that she looks like she’s being who she really is, though. Maybe that was the point.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        I don’t think she’s being who she really is at all here. She gives the impression she was forced into all these items.

        • Badriya Al-Badi’a

          I think for me the rockabilly feel of the dress really works for her, though maybe it’s just the tats. I did notice on my second look the red marks on her chest from the bodice, though. That’s just awful.

          • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

            Would love to see her in something truly rockabilly. She should be looking at Betsey Johnson.

      • tereliz

        She doesn’t look very happy to be there in shoes that don’t fit and a dress that’s chafing her chest. That’s why I hate strapless—the rubberized plastic attached to the top that’s meant to stick to your skin always chafes me, too, Lena. You’re better than this!

    • crash1212

      Honestly didn’t recognize her. She’s gorgeous and this is sad.

    • fursa_saida

      I am incapable of critiquing this properly because I enjoy her so much. The eyebrow raises are giving me life, probably because I do that a lot too.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Maybe I’ve seen too many comic-con press conference panels and seeing personal style being very, VERY laid back and carelessly punk ish, I don’t mind this. I think you’re lucky she’s even wearing a dress.

      Besides, Cersei could give a shit about your peasantry and guffaws your critiques.

    • RescueMe23

      She looks like she can’t wait to go home and change into sweats.

    • webslice33

      Don’t mess with Mama!

    • Clash D

      I LAUGHED at her jaded expression in the third and fifth photo. “Fine….Here, you Muthafuckers, Here’s the Ring. Happy?”

    • NinjaCate

      I had no idea she was that tatted up.

    • Saturnine

      Nope, her buzz just will not be harshed. Not by you, or you, or you . . . .

    • amaranth16

      Her eyebrows are to DIE for. Both in their styling and in their sass.

    • Columbinia

      It looks like she found a vintage prom dress and cut it into a mullet dress to “update” it. She looks like hundreds of other Goth-vintage aficionados out there, but with oddly tasteful makeup.
