IN or OUT: Elizabeth Banks in Monique Lhuillier at the “Walk of Shame” New Orleans Screening

Posted on April 24, 2014

We want to like this, but it’s just a bit too much for Lizzie to handle.

It’s a bit much, to our eyes.  Love the dress, but the hair is too laquered and the shoes are too severe with it. She needs to done down all the styling in order to make this one work. It’s coming off a bit Effie Trinket-lite, which doesn’t sound like a good thing to us, but probably just sold a bunch of you on the look.

Bitter Kittens make the call:


IN! I’m always here for some Effie action, bitches!

OUT!  Chins up, smiles on, because that’s the only thing that’s gonna sell this tight-assed look!



In other, recent judgmental news, the Kittens rose up as one and voted Mindy Kaling’s sassypants IN.

  • NMMagpie

    The dress is too much but that ring she is wearing is an IN.

    • decormaven

      Yes, it’s a shame it’s paired with that dress.

  • BobStPaul

    It’s the hair and make-up that make it out for me.

    • J. Preposterice

      same. Who did that makeup? Fire them, girl. If you did it yourself, hire someone next time, damn.

    • Constant Reader

      Me too. Hate the hair and the makeup is too washed out for a blonde wearing this much color. OUT.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      That is some seriously yellow hair, though it does seem to match both the dress and lettering in the poster so there’s that i suppose….

    • FancyPhilly

      Same, same, same. That hair is horrible.

  • sherrietee

    It’s fine, I suppose, but can we talk about the dated premise of the movie behind her?

    • Lori

      Yes, we can. I feel the same way about this movie that I did about “What’s Your Number?”—sweet Jesus on a breadstick why I we still having this tired conversation?

      • Danielle

        The same reason Taylor Swift keeps selling records: Slut shaming sells.

        • Lori

          Sigh. I know that’s true, but it shouldn’t be and it makes me really, really mad.

          • Danielle

            The feminist side of me gets so fired up about the entire topic of slut shaming that I have to physically log off and walk away sometimes.

          • Lori

            I’m right there with you.

      • Sarah

        Amen and hells yeah. So. Lame.

      • misstressofsylar

        Uhoh. Please don’t judge me because I watched What’s Your Number. Chris Evans reasons you know. *slinking off now, walking the walk of shame

        • Lori

          I wasn’t judging you, I was judging the people who made it. You enjoy your Chris Evans without shame.

    • Alloy Jane

      My first thought was “What kinda bullshit movie is this?” And I was just on a mental tear about sexist behavior and how societal sexism infuriates me.

    • It doesn’t even make sense on its own terms. What about sitting on a park bench, perfectly styled, says “Walk Of Shame”?
      Maybe the “I really have to pee, you guys”-pose is supposed to cover the “shame”-part?
      Or her “I’m so surprised that I really have to pee, you guys”-facial expression?

      • Kitten Mittons

        The vibe it gives me is very, “Oh no, my vagina is about to escape again. I just can’t control that little devil, and hilarious hijinx will ensue!”

    • formerlyAnon

      My impression of the use of the expression among very young adults of my acquaintance is that it has become so general – applied to men and women – that among some of them the emotional freight it carries is only slightly greater that of discussing a hangover.

      I don’t know if that’s an ongoing shift in usage or not. I don’t imagine moviemakers care – in their usage the implication that there’s going to be sex! and maybe lots of it! is all that matters.

      • Sarah

        I always thought the “shame” part came from looking like crap, not from having spent the night over. I know this means I’m hopelessly brazen, and I don’t care, but I still hate the term because there’s no effing reason to me why you have to look perfect in the morning.

        • Grumpy Girl

          oh gosh, and I thought the shame was not from what you did do, but from what you looked like everyone would assume you had done (whether sex or simply drunken passedoutedness)–and that there was no way to hide it. So yeah, about the appearance, more than the act. Which is largely what you said, so I have no idea exactly why I’m typing. Too much coffee? Too little love for focusing on work?

          • Sarah

            Ha both, I’m sure, to the latter. But yeah, never really associated it with the idea that it was shame for being promiscuous. Probably because what other people call “Walk of Shame” was just me going home to get ready for work, for a loooong time.

          • Linda LaPaz

            Not a “Walk of Shame” but a “Stride of Pride”!

        • Kitten Mittons

          I guess I figured it was one in the same. The “shame” came from looking like you hadn’t been home last night, which implies doing things that a “lady” wouldn’t be doing. I guess I’m also old enough that I haven’t heard this term applied to men at all, only women. I do wonder how much of it is kind of shifting generationally, though, as formerlyAnon mentioned above.

          • Sarah

            Yeah I haven’t heard it applied to men, either. I say we just relegate the term to mean celebrities who are looking wrecked on the RC.

          • demidaemon

            I think it has been more applied to both sexes, but usually, it is applied to gay men and straight women, which is just for more slut-shaming.

          • scoobynacks

            I haven’t heard it applied just to women. It’s whoever’s doing the walk home in the clothes from the night before. The hygiene and clothes are probably a mess and the other person got the benefit of getting ready for the day at their own place. Not so much shame come from most people these days for doing what they did the night before. To me the fact that anybody can tell when you’re getting any is the weirder thing. Like it’s any of their business. It’d be nice to be so effortless and confident that it all just blurs together. The fact that they feel the need to comment on it makes THEM the jerks. There needs to be a thing called shame-shaming.

          • Kitten Mittons

            Shame-shaming. I can get behind that.

            “Shame-shame on you!” It has a nice ring to it.

          • demidaemon

            HERE HERE!

          • Constant Reader

            Fun fact: a couple of years ago, a friend and I were going to a simulcast of an opera at La Scala at a local movie theater. It started at 2 pm, so we met nearby at noon for lunch. We had decided to get fairly dressed up (because La Scala!) and after a few funny looks and one beeping car horn, we realized that people thought we were still dressed up from the night before. We found it hilarious and sort of flattering, actually, since I was 48 and she was 58 at the time.

          • Kitten Mittons

            That’s pretty funny. It’s all in the perspective!

      • Beardslee

        The students at the college I work at planned to have a Slut walk to ‘reclaim’ that word. Since ‘slut’, like ‘bitch’, are to my ears words that have never been friends to women, I just can’t see it or get behind it or celebrate it.

        • I find the whole slutwalk premise pretty disturbing. The (sensible) protest against victim-blaming for sexual violence seemed to get co-opted by very young, very pretty women playing to the male gaze.

        • formerlyAnon

          I tend toward your view. As I try in discussions on similar matters to convey to my very young friends/acquaintances, practically speaking, along with your work to change the culture, you must be aware of and prepared for that part of the culture that hasn’t changed, pretends to have changed but consciously or not, hasn’t really, or sees no reason to change and is going to get aggressive when called out about it.

          I cultivate what I hope is not a negative or defeatist or condescending way of expressing my opinions, but it’s hard. Nowadays, I don’t engage as much as I did when my daughter and her friends were around a lot. It is tedious being accused of having been co-opted by rape culture.

      • muzan-e

        Yeah. Honestly, when I hear it these days it’s generally more a boast than a regret: I’ve done filthy, preposterous things the likes of which most people wouldn’t dare to consider.

    • MarissaLG

      It seems like a film within a film type parody of a romantic comedy.

  • Allie Carter

    IN – it’s fun, and I think she looks great.

  • lbl

    Out. I don’t like the hair, but really blue-eyed blondes in Barbie pink are just never going to do it for me.

  • Judie Tallman-Deitchman

    the make up is pretty bad.

    • phoenix4

      yeah it looks like they forgot to do her eyebrows

      • JT-D

        the foundation looks off, the bronzer just looks dirty. the hair is horrible too.

      • Grumpy Girl

        Completely the eyebrows. This is a dress that requires eyebrows. You can’t have hot pink and black and then no punctuation above your eyes.

  • IN. To me, it reads “Modern Betty who never left the modeling industry”.

  • Lori

    Out. I like the dress, but it’s a bit too tight on her which takes it from fun & interesting to Barbie and that’s not good. Also, TLo are right about the hair and accessories not working at all. Even for Effie I can’t get behind that.

    • Watts

      I definitely thought more Barbie than Effie Trinket.

      • Grumpy Girl

        Yeah, wouldn’t Effie have died her hair to match? Or found a way to echo the pattern of the dress?

      • charlotte

        She does look like a contender for the live action Barbie movie some people have apparently decided to make.

        • Lori

          Live action Barbie? No. That can’t happen. Please movie gods, don’t let that happen.

          • charlotte

            There is also a Marshmallow Peeps movie in the making. I am not kidding. The perks of working for a movie website…

          • Lori

            I’m OK with the Peeps. I know people who saw the Leggo movie and said it was cute. It’s the “live action” part that’s freaking me out. I can’t deal with the idea of casting a human actress to be Barbie. That way lies badness.

          • demidaemon

            Oh yeah, I saw that and though, “Well, this is going to be awful in so many ways.” I’ve heard a lot of kudos about the Lego movie, though.

  • IN. Would be better a little shorter and with a slightly lower neckline though.

  • KT

    I love the dress, and it fits her perfectly — I just think the head is wrong. The hair is awful, and her face looks sweaty and undone. I don’t have a problem with the shoes, though.

  • Shawn EH

    In, despite poor styling. Working that dress like the rent is due! Effie 4Ever!!!!

  • kcnitch

    Granted, the hair is a little weird, but I still give it an IN.

  • CO Gal

    It’s refreshing yet displeasing to the eye.
    Gail needed a stronger lip and better hair to make this work. Out.

  • JauntyJohn


  • Gatto Nero

    Out, owing mostly to the scarily lacquered hair.
    The shape of the dress works for her, but the color overwhelms her.

    • In_Stitches

      She ALWAYS does that to her hair. I just don’t get it.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    IN–I like all the ‘lacquered’ styling. It gives it more of a retro feel–perhaps it’s the pink & black.

  • Kaytee

    Out – styling is all wrong – needs different, looser hair and shoes with a more fun attitude. Sorry Lizzie

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Nope. I love the dress, but the hair and face are not working for her. OUT.


    In that first photo she looks like a wax figure of herself. Where the features are juuuuuuust off enough to make it look unreal. And the weg got crunched when they were setting up for the event. Seriously though. A friends wife works for Madame Tussaud’s and he would constantly have to take these outrageously expensive wax figures to events for her… “Justin Bieber is in the back of the car” “I need to pick up Selena Gomez tonight after work”. Add to that “Lizzie Banks’ wig got seriously f’d up in the convertible”

  • kimmeister

    The dress itself is super in, but that hairdo is wreaking havoc with the proportions of her forehead. Since everything but the dress is an out (well, the clutch is neutral), I’m going to have to call this an overall out.

  • Nikko Viquiera


  • TAGinMO

    I really like the dress, but I don’t think it’s her color. She looks washed out. Maybe that could be fixed with better makeup and a stronger lip, but I think this dress belongs on a more olive-skinned brunette or–ideally–a woman of color, as in the runway shot.
    And the hair is AWFUL.

  • Vegas Girl

    IN. I hate the hair. but I think she has the personality to pull off that dress.

  • ovarB

    Eh…I’m voting this “IN.” She does however, look like a walking Lichtenstein.

    • “Walking Lichtenstein” ???

    • Alloy Jane

      lol a Lichtenstein cheek come to life.

  • Emily Roach


  • DTLAFamilies

    Close but not close enough. Bad hair + bad makeup + painful shoes = OUT.

    P.S. Lupita would rock this dress.

  • In_Stitches

    I’m not loving the belt. Sure, it cinches her in like crazy, but the end result is that she looks kind of hippy. The pink and black combo is harsh and the hair doesn’t work. It’s rare that’ll I’ll give an out to a dress that fits well, rendered with some visual interest, but here we are…OUT

  • MilaXX

    Small IN. I like the dress and shoes, but hate the color & style of the hair.

  • The look itself is ok – so, IN – but it really doesn’t go with the movie poster backdrop, which in itself looks pretty stupid and dated. The combination makes her look Barbie/Stepford.

  • Jessica Freeman

    IN. I actually love that dress on her and it’s fabulous enough for me to forget about that crappy hair style.

  • Julie Chase

    In, but I HATE the hair. Haaaaaate.

  • Danielle

    In, but that dress needs to be sent to Queen Lupita immediately.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    In! She’s owning it.

  • MightyMarshal

    Y’all see Effie Trinket, I see modern Betty Draper. Either way: IN

  • Alloy Jane

    OUT. Love the dress but it overwhelms her. I hate her hair and her anti-makeup and those shoes, they seem a bit awkward to me.

  • Nika E

    With different hair and shoes this would be an IN for me.

  • Melissa Brogan

    I hate the shoes. And I’m not wild about her hair and makeup here. She looks tired and I want to encourage her to take a nap.

    I like the dress though. In just for it.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    I’m not a fan of the shoes, but I still call it an IN!

  • Monabel

    Out, horrible dress color, ditto make-up and hair.

  • Drunken Housewife

    Out… I don’t think the dress works for her at all. It makes her look flat-chested, short-legged, and a bit pot-bellied… when she has an amazing body.

  • IN. The hair is too severe, but the dress looks spectacular on her.

  • Rebekah B

    IN. I like it. I feel like we’ve seen her in crazier getups, so this doesn’t seem too bad to me.

  • Michael_Jones

    Sorry, boys, I’m giving this one an “in” (but just a lower case “in”). I like the dress, and I think the colour and shape work on her, which is enough for me to overlook the hair and make-up, although I agree that she needs to tone everything else down.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    OUT. Love the dress but the hair, makeup, and shoes are wrong.

  • jw_ny


    I quite like the dress, but that Betty Ford hair flip and those sad boobs are killing it!

  • MW

    IN. I hate the hair but I think the rest is working like gangbusters. Love the ring.

  • 1carmelita

    In. I love that dress. The hair is problematic, but not enough for an out.

  • Daisy Walker

    The dress is IN, but the rest of the look is a big ol’ OUT. Voting her off the red carpet.

  • lilazander

    In. In my eyes the shape of the dress saves it from doom.

  • saintebeuve

    I like it! It’s got a playful Roy Lichtenstein vibe.

  • d4divine

    OUTish I don’t mind the dress, but it could use another inch of hem. The hair it’s straight up wrong.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    OUT as a look. I agree, though, that the dress is awesome. The styling pushes the whole look too much towards “Barbie,” though. When your dress is that loud, best to tone down everything else I think.

  • samitee

    Effie Trinket for sure. But I’m gonna say IN, if only because I’m too distracted by the bizarre photoshopped version of her on the poster in the background to look at the outfit too closely. Seriously, I had to squint to convince myself that it was supposed to be Elizabeth Banks hovering above that bench.

  • formerlyAnon

    Out. Sheer prejudice on my part against the cut of the dress from the waist up and the pattern. Super high necklines like that need a really stunning reason to exist, which this is not exhibiting.

  • d4divine

    Waiting to see the movie before judging it…movie posters and titles can often be misleading.

  • TheLaurenJean

    IN!! It’s fun, put together, and, unlike so many other things we’ve been seeing on the red carpet, not aggresively ugly.

  • marlie

    IN. I love the dress, and I love the shoes. Her makeup and hair should have both been a little softer, but really, I think overall she looks really good.

    *That movie looks like it’s going to suck, though.

  • Rhonda Shore

    She looks great in this dress. I don’t love the hair or the shoes but still vote this IN!!!

  • Sarah

    I say in because it fits her well, but I am feeling way out on the neck-up. She has last night’s makeup, which I guess now that I think on it is in keeping with the movie theme, which is also so not fresh.

  • KendraMR

    IN. I love the dress, and while I don’t like her hair and makeup, they’re not bad enough for an out.

  • alyce1213

    OUT. The dress is too long and her hair looks plastic.

  • jilly_d

    IN! That. Is. MAHOGANY!

  • stubbornthoughts

    I say IN, this isn’t anywhere near bad, but I understand the critiques.

    HOWEVER. I really, really, really want to see this on Lupita.

  • AlexisPayne

    If the pink was a skosh more toned down I’d be into it. Out, but just barely.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She looks fine, but fine isn’t good enough. Maybe if the dress were shorter, maybe if her dark roots didn’t form a straight line….IDK…I’m going with OUT.

  • SophieCollier

    That hair is awful. I never even noticed shoes. The dress is an IN but that weird head ruins the whole look. So OUT it is.

  • 25or6to4

    IN, but this dress would have really sung on someone else (*cough* Lupita *cough*)… Those shoes are awful, though. Diagonally cutting off one’s toes is a difficult look to pull off. Her hair isn’t atrocious, but something softer would have been lovely.

  • Jangle57

    I like it on the model – the pink doesn’t look as bright which helps. But on her, no. OUT

  • boweryboy

    I hate the hair, but the rest is an IN. Who’s Effie Trinket? Edith Head’s younger sister?

    • Sarah

      Her character in the Hunger Games movies…a very over-the-top fashion victim from the future.

      • boweryboy

        Oh. Ok. That’s why that name sounds familiar.

        I half watched the first movie with the partner’s family over Xmas and my takeaway was, “I liked it better when it was called Battle Royale.”

        • Sarah

          Yes, quite. Been there, done that. The young adult genre is a fertile ground for revisiting themes, what with the high turnover in the age group. Always a new crop to be wooed into the “romance” of vampires, futuristic dystopian romance, inner city living, etc. etc. ad infinitum.

  • smh4748

    In, because I really like the dress. Enough to pretend I didn’t see the hair.

  • Sophia Finfer

    IN for me. Agree about the hair; it doesn’t really go. But I actually love the dress.

  • MzzPants

    Neck, upward OUT.

  • MartyBellerMask

    It is flattering as hell. IN.

  • Grumpy Girl

    in, for the dress itself, and for her smile. But it would look so much prettier if the pink were an aqua color.

  • malarson2

    It’s not too bad, but she’s always an IN for me because I love that she pulled off People Like Us and Pitch Perfect in the same year. LOVE her.

  • decormaven

    There’s something just a little too forced about this look, and it’s not working for me. Out.

  • lalahartma

    I’m in for IN.

  • Going for an IN on this one. Not in love with the hair, but everything else is working for me.

  • Kitten Mittons

    IN. I like the dress and shoes, and I can deal with the hair. The makeup is unfortunate, though.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    I think she’s making it work. IN.

  • I don’t hate this enough to call it an out, although there are cavils a-plenty with the details: hair, jewelry, and shoes are all not good. But it fits her well, it’s certainly eye-catching, and the color is good on her. If there was a way to vote “meh” I would, but absent that option, I’ll say IN.

  • appliquer


  • Carleenml

    that hair. it hurts.

  • Imasewsure

    I don’t love the hair but the dress is fine (hard to see anything in front of that hideous poster though) IN

  • mjude


  • lamamu

    Something about the combination of the hair and make-up with that particular dress ages her. A different dress color would work wonders for the entire look.

  • Qitkat

    Small in, cuz it’s a great dress, but I’d love to see that vibrant color/design on Lupita.

  • luludexter

    I think she is wearing the dress fine but that hair! out

  • Nancer

    In – the dress is nice. Other styling choices would have been better, but you can’t argue that the dress doesn’t look good on her, because it does.

  • CatherineRhodes


  • juniper

    “She needs to done down all the styling”- that threw me off until I realized it was supposed to be “tone” and not “done”. (I pronounced it like cone or tone too in my done instead of “dun”) heehee

    And it’s an OUT because I have an issue with her lack of eyebrows. and the hair is comical to me. The dress is cute though.

  • LaSylphide

    In for the dress. Hair, makeup, shoes, all pretty bad, but that terrific dress out weighs the bad stuff.

  • suzq

    In. I’ve seen way worse with both the outfit and the hair.

  • teensmom99

    IN. I think your quibbles are what keep it from being a WERQ but I think she looks great.

  • Janet B


    Not her bodice.

  • somebody blonde

    IN. She looks fab. She should’ve gone for less-lacquered hair and more glam face, but it’s still totally her dress.

  • gabbilevy

    In, but I wish her hair didn’t look like she tipped over sideways and then emptied the whole can of Aquanet.

  • melanie0866

    IN. It’s not my favorite, but she looks great.

  • MarissaLG

    IN. It’s a lot, but she looks great. I think the makeup could have been pumped up a few notches, but otherwise it’s cute.

  • sagecreek

    Oh, it’s in. It’s not great, and your comment about the shoes is spot on. It’s also a size too small, but still, an in.

  • Jacob Bowen

    The dress needs to be shortened a good 3 inches, and the hair needs to NEVER look like that again, but I can give her an IN for effort. At least she looks semi-decent for once.

  • kayleymaybe

    IN. Would have been better with a ponytail, but this isn’t bad.

  • crash1212

    OUT. And it’s an out due to details…cuz she got them all wrong. I like the dress. Hate the hair, makeup, shoes and it’s a bit tight.

  • irielle

    Out. It’s too bad her hair looks so much better in the movie posters. It punctuates how much better she looks than this hairstyle implies.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Her makeup is not right for the colour of the dress, but it’s in. She always puts the effort in. Also, I see James Marsden’s name on the poster so the movie is also IN.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Out. Sorry, Effie.

  • Ugh (that’s an option, right?) I had a dress like that for my Barbie Doll in 1971. It didn’t look good on her, either. And I can’t even with the hair.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Barbie was the first thing I thought of when I saw that hair and dress combo. The clutch and patent leather belt aren’t helping.

  • barbarienne

    The shoes make her look as if she has pigeon toes. I’m trying to figure out what way her feet are pointing in that shot, and they seem to actually be pretty parallel to each other. I am hating those shoes on those grounds alone.

    The dress is okay. She isn’t making it sing, but it fits and has visual interest.

    The hair is awful.

    So… awful at the top and bottom, meh in the middle, adds up to OUT from me.

  • ktr33

    Out. Dress looks junky on her, polyester-y even. Like a knock-off of the one the model is wearing. Effie? Not EVEN.

  • demidaemon

    I hate the hair and dislike the shoes, but that dress is pretty much perfection on her. I’m going to give her an IN, just because of the dress. Next time, Miss Banks needs to get her styling DOWN, though.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    IN for the dress alone. I will ignore the hair and the pee-pee pose in the poster, which is seriously annoying me.

  • nannypoo

    I don’t like the dress. If it were a better length I could find it acceptable, but as it is I hate it. And I don’t get the point of the hair either.

  • conniemd

    Out. I think this is a GTNYD. Hot pink and black don’t seem to go well with blonde complexions. This dress should be worn by a woman of color.

  • ktr33

    Effie? — as IF! Dress looks junky on her, like a knock-off of the one on the runway. Polyester-y. Better to go the full Effie than this. OUT.

  • judybrowni

    Wow, it took ’em this long to title some ron com Walk of Shame?

    Hollywood, for once you’re slow in your exploitation.

    IN for the dress, tho. Maybe only because I rocked me some pink and black back in the day.

    That pattern might be pretty in small doses, but as an entire dress it’s verging on being a migraine trigger.

    And I think I’ve just become Too Old because I really don’t think I’d like to star in a movie called “Walk of Shame.” I’m going to go buy some Geritol now.

    • formerlyAnon

      Do they still make Geritol? (Or have they renamed it, since today’s “active seniors” sure aren’t going to buy anything that calls out to ‘geriatric” in its name!)

      Nowadays all I see advertised is Centrum Silver.

      • SierraDelta

        It’s still available, although now they want to be referred to as “Your partner for a healthier life.” I guess they’re no longer concerned about my iron-poor tired blood (which just could be because the FTC zapped them with a MEGA fine for false and misleading advertising!).

  • I like the dress and the shoes, but her hair is OUT and her eye makeup + ‘no eyebrows’ eyebrows do remind me of Effie.

  • unbornfawn

    The hair makes the look forced. The dress is too long and the shoes don’t flatter. It is a pretty great dress. This one falls down on the styling. OUT.

  • Kerry McCombs

    I’m going to give her an IN. I like the dress a lot. She looks cute. Except that hair. That’s some awful hair. Still it’s enough for an IN for me.

  • So in that movie Avery Jessop has a thing with Liz Lemon’s boyfriend? Yikes.

  • cocohall

    I do not understand anyone’s fondness for patterns that look like they could induce a seizure. Nor do I understand having a full inch of roots that are a completely different color from the rest of your hair. I think Elizabeth Banks is a very funny woman (her bitchy commentary in Pitch Perfect is my favorite part after Rebel Wilson’s horizontal running), and I’m hoping she can turn title of Walk of Shame on its head. I’ve read the comments here and I do think that the phrase has become a linguistic anachronism, in that it is used completely WITHOUT any sense of shame by many. Although slut shaming is certainly alive and well.

  • amanda lynn


  • VicD

    Out – WTF with that hair.

  • Verascity

    IN. The styling is a little severe, I agree, but she’s still rocking that dress.

  • Scimommy

    In, if we ignore the hair.

  • anneland

    I thought the belt looked so tight it was painful. Then, on close-up, only to see it is actually LOOSE. How tiny is her waist? IN. I don’t love it, but it doesn’t meet “out” standards. The hair is awful.

  • Ray Ray

    I wish she/her stylist had retained the proportions of the dress as it fit the model–right at the knee instead of a couple inches past the knee. And that’s some not great Jetsons helmet hair.

  • roche

    Agree. Her hair is to wiggy. It should be softer and more natural and flattering, the makeup less harsh. Love the dress and even the shoes.

  • ankali

    Out, because she looks too Barbie-like in it.

  • paintedfish

    Out, Barbie was my first reaction.

  • holla

    I like the dress, but the whole look together is OUT

  • Kelly

    The dress is fun (though too long), but overall, I’m voting “out.” It’s the hair that’s killing it for me. Remember those terrible 1960s sex comedies? The hair makes her look like one of the “bimbo secretaries” who had to suffer the sexual harassment, er, I mean, jokes and attention of the males.

  • MaggieMae

    Hair, skin, and make-up not going with that dress. It’s not the fault of the dress! (see: model). Ship that dress off to someone else, dear.

  • Icky hair and make-up. The dress is the wrong color for her.

  • ampg

    IN. The hair is bad, but the dress is awesome and I’ll forgive the shoes.

  • Mousentrude

    In. Dress is fabulous and while the hair is dreadful, I don’t think it’s quite bad enough for an out. Not quite. But very close.

  • Seriously…make up out. It’s like fake tan “natural”.

  • LMGordon

    January Jones would do it better.
