Rosario Dawson in Diane von Furstenberg at the “Cesar Chavez” NY Screening

Posted on March 18, 2014

Girl, that is some serious Blanche Deveraux going on up in there. You need to take a step back and re-assess.



Rosario Dawson attends a screening of “Cesar Chavez” at AMC Empire in New York City in a DVF boatneck jumpsuit.

But Blanche would’ve had the sense to say no to that crotch. She also would’ve called that fabric “dowdy.”

Bless her.

Oh, and while you’re re-assessing, here’s a fun thing you can do: fire everyone responsible for doing that to your head. We don’t think we’re going out on a limb when we say your hairstylist and makeup person are not supposed to be adding decades to your age.

Seriously, sweetie. This is painful to look at.

    The biggest offense for me is that it matches her skin tone almost exactly.

  • Capt. Renault

    So *that’s* what Cesar Chavez looks like!

  • Glam Dixie

    Heads should roll, I’m just going to pretend I didn’t see any of this. She looks like her hair brush was dipped in crisco before it was used on her. I just can’t.

    • decormaven

      Pretty much my same reaction. This woman is too fine for this mess.

  • @Biting Panda

    When your outfit is mirroring what’s happening on the carpet you are standing on, you’ve failed.

  • JR Labrador

    MAN I’m over this trend for orange makeup. And if your clothing’s fabric looks like an extreme close-up of a bandaid, you should say NEXT and slap yo people.

    • SRQkitten

      Slap ’em HARD! And then send them out to the unemployment line – seriously, this is a textbook illustration of stylist who should be fired “for cause.”

  • The Counselor

    I am *passionately* hating that orange eye make-up! Like, can’t-even-quip, I’m so dumbstruck.

  • judybrowni

    The Curse of the Zombie Orange Eye Shadow.

    I thought it had died, for good, back in the ’90s, but ooooooh noooooooo!

  • crash1212

    Perhaps there was a contest to see who could make Rosario look absolutely awful…and this was the winning look? Only thing I can think of for this abomination.

  • Rand Ortega

    Is that…(whispering like Piper Laurie when she whispered, “Dirty Pillows”) Pleather?
    *faints dead away*

    • Sarah

      Revive! I think it’s silk. You may have found the one way this isn’t as bad as it could be.

  • fursa_saida

    NOOOOOOO. She is too pretty for this droopy disaster. What is with one leg having trompe l’oeil shorts?

    • kimmeister

      To me, that unfortunately placed pattern change looks like a pocket malfunction.

  • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

    Is she working some serious Lisa Bonet, or is it just me?

  • Constant Reader

    No. She deserves better everything.

  • Sam Smith

    I kinda like the feel of the top if it was paired with skinny black pants or pencil skirt, but otherwise agree.

    • barbarienne

      And in a color that complements her skin, rather than blending into it.

  • marlie

    Oooh. Ouch. I was going to say something nice about the top of the outfit, but then… no. It’s all awful. And that eye makeup? Inexcusable.

  • Jacob Bowen

    I don’t like that her hair looks so wet, but I like it pulled back…but ORANGE? Really? When your dress is a fleshy colored fabric WHY would you go with a fleshy orange eye shadow? It’s like they want her to look like a flesh colored blob.

    • Sarah

      Fleshy orange = Oompaloompa. No bueno.

      • demidaemon

        It’s true. Except Oompaloompas still look more their actual age.

  • alyce1213

    Nothing good about this. Simply ugly.

  • Erica

    This just looks God awful.

  • Anna

    Rosario and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Print.

    (And overall styling, hair and makeup)

  • Tracie Rivera

    Looks like something a much older woman would wear.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Trope l’oeil gym shorts? Not ok.

  • deelup

    I’m surprised she can walk after all those muddy mountain bikes rode over her. Repeatedly. And one seems to even have rolled some red clay across her eyes! Poor thing.

  • It looks like one of those trompe l’oeil Lichtenstein cosplays. But they forgot to do her face.

  • MilaXX

    Yeah none of this is working. It’s all so dreary and droopy.

  • barbarienne

    Yes, another of the truly STUNNING ladystars whose styling team either hate her or are just really bad at their jobs. (I am of course assuming there is a team.)

    She consistently dresses as if she’s someone frumpy or older. Maybe that’s who she really is inside, but somehow I doubt it.

  • kimmeister

    The shape of the thing is actually working better on her than it has any right to, but the color/pattern are just wrong.

  • Danielle


  • ovarB

    Cue theme song “Thank you for being a friend…” or in this case. not. In this case being a literal “Golden girl” is not doing her any favors.

  • Wow, but not in the good way.

  • Annistella

    I recall my hairdresser politely trying to tell me that I needed to change my hair colour. I wasnt getting ‘the real message’ because she finally grabbed a bottle of foundation and said “you look like this”. Rosario, you too look like a bottle of Revlon Colourstay foundation.

  • SugarSnap108

    When crazy-crotch is the least of a lady’s problems, that’s quite something.

  • Trickytrisha

    Poor thing, she looks like an unripe speckled pumpkin.

  • Imasewsure

    It is leather? It’s awful whatever it is… like a human boot

  • StelledelMare

    I have just recently started another binge watch of the entire series of The Golden Girls (I have one basically once a week) and I think Blanche has actually had crotches just as bad if not a bit worse. But the print and color are both all wrong. I think most everyone needs to stay away from colors that match their skin so closely. The hair isn’t working at all.

  • Totally baffling!

  • Aurora Leigh

    Holy. Fucking. Shit.

  • PixiePunch

    She looks like the printer was running out of ink…

  • How could someone do that to such a beautiful woman? Scorched earth for her staff.

  • quiltrx

    The outfit and horrible hair and makeup sort of give her a Halloween-pumpkin face. Dreadful.

  • anotherkate

    Am I nuts or would this have been pretty darn cute as a romper, with shorts? (And better hair and makeup, obviously).

  • Fuchaforever

    Doesn’t Rosario own a MIRROR??? How can she leave the house knowing she has wet hair stuck to her forehead?! Orange eyeshadow? WTF is that about? And that suit is for someone 2 and 1/2 times her age- for someone like DVF!

  • coco ebert

    It looks like I did her makeup.

  • MissusBee

    Rosario Dawson: I’m too beautiful. Something must be done. Quick! Ugly clothes, icky make-up, and let’s damp those luscious locks down with some grease. BAM. You’re welcome, red carpet! Rosario here, hiding my awesome light so lesser mortals have a chance to shine!

  • FridaStaire

    It’s a tribute to Liza, sillies!

  • veleri

    I like the hair though :/

  • Kitten Mittons

    It took me several minutes to determine if that…thing…was see-through and she was wearing shorts and a tube top underneath. I think I’m more horrified that someone would purposely make a garment where the pattern gives that impression. Awful hair, terrible orange eye makeup, and droopy everything.

    You are cute as a button, but please start over, ma’am.

  • BayTampaBay

    I like both pieces just not together: Wear the top with a black leather skirt or black leather skinnies and wear the pants with a black tank top.

  • Fannie Wolston

    Come on it fits her favorably and the pattern has a mosaic feel to it, befitting of a chavez mural!

  • kt

    Another color and another inch to the top ( get out of my crotch is my new t shirt slogan) and NONE of the makeup and she would be disco biscuit sassy. I’m down with DVF, but it requires execution

  • CatherineRhodes

    The ugliest, most unflattering outfit I’ve seen in a long time. It takes some serious fug to make Rosario Dawson look unattractive.

  • JynxTheCat

    Gosh. This is aggressively ugly
