  • mimi

    oy that purple eyeliner makes her look sickly.

    • flightier

      and the nude lip ain’t helping.

    • J. Preposterice

      right? consumption face.

      • macaroni

        My thoughts exactly! Yikes.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Also, she couldn’t comb her hair? That’s a “look” some stylist recommended? My hair looks just like that when I wake up in the morning, thankyouverymuch.

    • lunchcoma

      Oh, that is what that is. I had hesitated to say anything because I had actually wondered if she was unwell or unhappy in some way.

    • ElaineMarie34

      With that spacey smile and the zombie eyes — she looks like she spent her 4/20 here in Colorado.

      • holla

        maybe this reflect exactly how she feels about the hip pouches.

      • jen_vasm

        If this isn’t a walk of shame outfit, nothing is. Plus, her bra must’ve gone missing at some point.

  • Sarah Rivas

    I feel like a napkin joke is too obvious to make.

  • Alex Palombo

    It looked good until her head.

  • strangebride

    Man, she did not give a shit today

  • LeelaST

    Wow, those droopy shoulders and waist pouches are horrible. I’d say it was also hemmed badly but it looks the same on the model.

    • lunchcoma

      Those waist pouches seem to be For Models Only.

    • Kent Roby

      The model’s intense fierceness is the only thing (barely) saving the dress.

  • Mothra

    Pooch much? And how about a hairbrush? Did you comb it with an egg beater? sheesh.

    • Kent Roby

      I just assumed that Humanitarian Katie is nursing two baby kangaroos back to health in there. One must never allow one’s public appearances to interfere with one’s quest to make the world a better place!

  • aahlife

    the models stomach is totally flat, Katie”s pooches out a bit, with the wings it gives the illusion that she has a pouch that she is keeping things in instead of carrying a purse.

    • Very practical! No need for a clutch.

    • Little_Olive

      And yet, her waist looks ridiculously tiny. It gives her a little girl’s body.

  • @Biting Panda

    Pool hair and hip flotation devices, do not a good look make.

  • Her outfit today clearly says, “Suffering from Zac Poison.”

    • demidaemon

      Oh, it’s Zac Posen. I should really pay more attention to who the designer is. It all makes sense now, in the worst way possible.

  • NOOOOO! That is some hangover shopping hair. GNTYD, Katie. GNTYD.

    • Trent

      Agreed, but whose dress it it? Even the model isn’t pulling it off. No excuse for the hair, though…

      • True! Dr. Pepper-colored satin is no one’s friend.

      • holla

        maybe someone like Tilda or Kate could pull this off in the extremely avant-garde styling.

  • DagnyReardon

    Bobbi Brown is rethinking her contract.

    • Vegas Girl

      Actually, she was already replaced by Kate Upton – maybe a month ago? Her makeup has looked terrible ever since.

  • Danielle

    Not a single fuck was given that day.

    • StillGary

      D, You WIN the Hemingway Internet Award!

  • Dalana

    It looks like her tits are sagging into those ugly pockets at her hip. And the color is a bit off for her skin tone.

  • sienna elm

    I want her to accessorize those unfortunate pouches…maybe with daisies…or some long-stemmed roses.

    • Aunt Tabby

      That was my first thought too! So many possibilities. One could be the beer cozy, the other for a pack of smokes.

      • SugarSnap108

        “Beer cozy” was one of my first thoughts upon seeing this dress. Probably not the intended reaction.

      • Hehe!

      • sienna elm

        My first thought was paintbrushes! Looked like a good outfit to wear while painting.

  • Tricia Rose

    Is it just me, or are the puppies not supported enough? This whole thing looks a wild mess- Get Yo’ Shit Together- GYST!

    • MartyBellerMask

      The boobs, the hair, the hem of the dress…. nothing is good. Katie should have stayed in bed. She looks like she wanted to. I actually feel pretty bad for her.

    • demidaemon

      It’s a 5 Gs dress, for real.

  • jilly_d

    That dress is wearing poor Katie.

  • pugluv

    Waaaaaaaaay too tight and she looks like a hot mess….

  • Mismarker

    Oh, ffs.

  • Ron Zank

    Not good on the model. Worse on KH.

  • Anplica Fiore

    Zomby makeup for the loss!

  • teensmom99

    I had just been thinking that there are 2 Katie Holmes: Katie, the college student who doesn’t give a s*** about clothes and Kate (aka Cruise’s wife), the Stepford fashionista. She really was sort of a slob pre-marriage. This look is the Katie CS wearing a dress that the Kate SF might have worn–still too napkin-y but would have looked better with a sleek bob.

  • bunnydiet

    Why would you ever wear a dress that makes you look fat?

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    coco wins

  • decormaven

    Definitely a FMO dress.

  • Trickytrisha

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen her make the most of her assets, which are mainly in that lovely face. She could wear clothes well, but hardly ever does. She either has a massive case of “I don’t give a shit” or makes some very unfortunate choices in how she presents herself to her public. Such a waste.

    • Imasewsure

      And yet her casual clothes are usually cute and (fake) breezy…. she should just stay off the RC and stick to “girl on the street” shots

  • FibonacciSequins

    That is a ridiculous excuse for a dress. Added fabric on the hips, emphasizes the belly, makes non-saggy breasts look saggy. It doesn’t even look good on the model.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Said it before, will say it again…satin is the devil’s fabric…if Coco can barely pull it off the rest of us stand no chance…

    • MartyBellerMask

      It reminds me of the PR “sustainable fabric” challenge from several seasons ago. ALL of the dresses looked like this. 🙁

      • demidaemon

        Yeah. Everything looked pretty bad in that challenge. It didn’t help that the models picked the fabric.

  • ballerinawithagun

    I’ve had customers ask me to make similar dresses. I’ve had to explain to them that they are not real life clothing. The model looks good on the runway but only in that position. Not real life.

    • kimmeister

      How do the customers react to such guidance?

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Did Adore Delano make this dress? Even on Coco Rocha it looks like it was put together with a glue gun.

  • MilaXX

    Nope. Something this tricky has to be fitted meticulously or it will not work. This looks a mess with a poorly rolled hem and a mid section so tight it’s giving her a pouch with wings. I also hate the tousled hair with this dress.

    • Aunt Tabby

      Zac Posen actually went as her date and walked the red carpet with her. The dress was cut too tight at the knees for her to walk in without the dress riding up. LOL, Zac had to pull the hem down several times.

      The Daily Mail had several shots of the dress. The seaming on the back made her butt look great. Still, it’s a standing and posing dress only. I really don’t know how she could sit through a 2 hour film in it.

      • demidaemon

        That’s great PR for you right there, Zac. What an idjit.

  • sagecreek

    Whoa. That hair is a mess, and her hem is still pinned up, apparently. Go back home, Missy, and don’t come out of your room until you are ready to play with the grownups.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Girl, that dress and your casual head were not meant to be in the same room together. And what is with that hem?? Is it supposed to look shoddily turned under?

  • Tanya Wade

    She is tiny as can be but the dress makes her lumpen. Send it back!

  • Anna

    This whole look is just depressing. Excuse me while I youtube some puppies and kittens playing…

  • kimmeister

    Those pumps do not look black to me.

  • MW

    Poor dear mixed up her holidays. You are four months late for that Christmas party, Katie!

  • Vaniljekjeks

    Saggy Christmas Ornament.

  • Miss wks


  • LadyVimes

    Oh honey. No.

  • alyce1213

    Oh no. But Iike the color on her

  • Denise Alden

    Everything about this dress is why I don’t get Zac Posen.

    • Evan

      Yeah, why does he always use satin? It’s like it’s the only material he knows of.

      • demidaemon

        And satin is clearly one of the devil’s fabrics. You think he would know better by now.

  • Toby Wollin

    You know, sometimes you need to start at the top to make sure that you are not in conflict with the garment, yah know? A more ‘structured’ hairstyle might have helped this a bit…or, looking at the dress…perhaps not.

  • Angela

    From the ankle down she looks fine….

  • stellamaris73

    That dress will launch a few pregnancy rumors…

  • Imasewsure

    Wow she looks like hell

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    I rarely say anything negative about anyone (not on here anyway, I have been known to throw my toys out of the pram over at the AV Club… long story) but that hair doesn’t so much look JBF as JBDTAHB*

    *Just Been Dragged Through A Hedge Backwards

  • random_poster

    The side-by-side shot of her and the model look like a Before and After story. Go watch My Fair Lady, Katie, and start working on that posture and attitude.

  • Jennica Brocious

    She needs to go back to armani, she always looked better.

  • nannypoo

    Another spot on the end-of-the-year worst-dressed list has just been taken.

  • crash1212

    I like the color for her. I like her head, but not with this dress. I hate the dress. At first I thought the hem was turned up shoddily until I looked at the model and it looks the same on her. Little Zac actually meant the hem to look like a bad Home Ec project. Interesting choice. I do not understand the swoonage over Zac Posen dresses – they are, with few exceptions, quite ugly to my eye.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Zac Posen confuses the hell out of me…especially on Project Runway (BRING BACK MICHAEL!)!

      • demidaemon

        I will say he usually gives better overall critiques than Michael did, in terms of easily understood content. It seems to me that Kors can design but isn’t the best teacher whereas Zac is a teacher and not a designer.

        • Jacob Bowen

          I just appreciate that Michael Kors never took himself too seriously on PR and was HILARIOUS. Zac seems to think he’s a gift to the fashion world and I just don’t appreciate his smugness. It’s sad when I can’t wait to hear what NINA is going to say so I can get some comic relief and personality.

          • demidaemon

            Yeah, I agree that the original panel had much better chemistry. I do have to say I preferred Heidi as the clueless yet sometimes lightbulb moment one, Kors as the funny but could get serious when need be one, and Nina as the bitchy critical one.

            Okay, you have made me completely reevaluate my original comment and say that you were right!

          • Jacob Bowen

            Clueless Heidi is MY FAVORITE Heidi…especially when she’s in something incredibly tacky/sexy!

  • Pumps

    Did she fire her hairstylist, at the last minute? Is her makeup artist on strike? I don’t understand what is going on with the face and hair to even comment about the dress.

  • AlisonS

    Oh Joey honey you need a new head.

  • Meh. Don’t like the dress on Katie. The wind obviously got to her hair, and she forgot to put on makeup. Looks great on Coco. But of course Coco is showing a little personality.

  • Myra Amler

    The bottom half of the dress is hideous. That bow thing is not flattering, the fabric is pulling and that “hem”… This would be auffed on PR.

  • Prairie

    Where are her spanx? Core, darling!

  • elirt

    I think she ‘s attempting casual, but comes off looking drunk.

  • blue808

    Exciting as a bowl of cold oatmeal….

  • GillianHolroyd

    That full-length 3/4 view says it all. She is 35. Time to stop with the wee waif look. Unfortunately she doesn’t seem to possess any innate style so she allows herself to be dressed in the most godawful garments. And Zac Posen ranks right down there with Stella McC.

  • SophieB210

    Getting serious 1980s high school dance vibes from this dress. Something about the color and the material, not to mention the Martha Quinn hair.

  • what not

    How odd: That dress creates the illusion of terrible posture.

  • rebeemoon

    That’s a tragic dress made from an unforgiving fabric. You could carry the contents of your purse in the roll of that hem.

  • It’s got cup-holders!

    • Topsalterie

      Absolutely! I ran down the comments before I posted. I just knew someone would have already said this.

  • marlie

    As much as I love Katie and want good things for her, it pains me to say that none of this is working for me. Another fussy, overwrought dress from Zac Posen. The color is nice, but it’s rather Fall-ish. Her bust looks weird, and the hem is unforgivable. Plus the too-casual hair and makeup? Katie, go home and start again.

    • … and I don’t like the matchy shoes. The idea of that neckline is good on her but then it all goes wrong.

  • KT

    I like this color on her… and that’s it. It looks like she’s either drunk or on heroin. People don’t usually mix the two, right?

  • BLauD

    A gift-wrapped uterus rarely works for anyone…

  • SugarSnap108

    From the neck up, she looks like one of those heroin-chic American Apparel models.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    This is not working on any level-and Ms. Holmes, please get that stray hair out of your eyes, stat.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    wow. there is not one single thing right about this.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Poor Katie, she’s being held captive by that dress.

    • Constant Reader

      I blame the Scientologists.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    The hip things… they’re frightening me! I guess… the color could be worse, in theory?

  • titaness25

    All together now…Comb…Yo’…HAIR.

  • kt

    What a fantastically ill suited dress.

  • Laura Livingston

    She looks like she just had a bad bout of morning sickness, about 4 months pregnant?

  • moppet

    I blame Zac Posen for that horribly overdesigned dress, but Katie, I’m going to have to blame you for that head suit. If your dress is that complicated, you have to complete the look with some hair styling and makeup, or you look like a young girl playing dress-up.

    • Gatto Nero

      I thought it was badly hemmed, but it has that weird bubble-hem effect on the model, too. And that’s the least of the problems.

    • demidaemon

      So true. Coco is one of the fiercest and best posers in the business. if she can’t sell it, the design is clearly at fault.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    This is like one of those scared straight Faces of Heroin ads.

  • akg

    that embellishment on the pooch was such a poor design choice.

  • FridaStaire

    Girl, that’s not your dress! Or your makeup!

  • She looks drunk.

  • conniemd

    Thanks to TLo and the Bitter Kittens I could take just one look at this dress and it would scream Zac Posen at me. He is the “master” of silk and satin with oddly placed bows, draping, bustles, etc.

  • I don’t think that dress would look good on a hangar.

  • Tee

    Sex in the limo. That’s the only excuse for that look.

  • Denise Rambo


  • quiltrx

    Size up, punkin. Makes your belly look big and you obviously can’t lift your arms.

  • why the heroin addict makeup?

  • bessann28

    Oh my gosh. This is just terrible. Hair is terrible, makeup is terrible, dress is REALLY terrible. Whaaaaat is going on here.

  • A homeless woman who resembles Katie Holmes stole a dress from David’s Bridal and crashed an industry event for the hors d’oeuvres? Is this a Lifetime movie?

  • PastryGoddess

    To paraphrase another bitter kitten: What. The. Actual. Fuck. am I seeing right now

  • annrr

    Those waist folds were all played out by 2008 when Leanne won Project Runway.

  • French_Swede

    Get that woman some chapstick and a hairbrush STAT!

  • frannyprof

    Suri’s filing emancipation papers even as we speak…

  • Ali Kinkade Hendrickson

    Oh my god. HOW DO YOU NOT COMMENT ON THIS?!? This is a great example on why I dislike the ‘whiteboard’ feature. I don’t come here for pictures, I come for witty banter and commentary. This shit is tragic and pregnant. You have to say something.

  • scoobynacks

    This is very ‘prom chaperone, post-hookup.’

  • Ali B

    Sad Charlotte York

  • Go home, Katie, you’re drunk. That hair and makeup, ugh! The dress does nothing for her at all. Droopy boob and poochy belly. Sheesh! It’s all the fault of that dress!

  • Sara Hottman

    Hungover mother-of-the-bride.

  • Qdahling

    Girl That Is Nobody’s Dress

  • MM4321

    What is the opposite of “WERQ”?

    • demidaemon

      WREQ, I believe.

  • GeoDiva

    Why do male designers think we would ever want to make our hips look bigger? Ugh! I don’t want to have origami on my hips!

  • MannahattaMamma

    that’s a WTF dress if ever i saw one: bad design, bad fabric, bad color, bad matchymatch shoes. ‘Taint Miss Meadows, it’s a Misfire.

  • looks like she’s just standing there awkwardly with the dress hanging off her, like she’s a hanger. her face is saying “who am i and what am i doing here?”

  • Malia C.


  • Vee

    I hate it. It’s a made for a completely flat person. That hair and make up makes her look tired and little cray cray. She should stay away from shiny material and find a brush, someone to trim those bangs and new makeup artit.

  • Crystal


  • Maria Parramore

    Coca Rocha is selling the hell out of that dress. Katie, not so much.

  • Aurumgirl

    She looks like she’s ill. That should never happen.

  • Mary Lauer

    Ohmigod, the cup holders on the hips from a long ago Project Runway episode!! Who was it that did those? Zac Posen STOLE the idea, ha! (j/k)

  • BitterOldQueen

    Good lord woman, No, no, no. The color, the silhouette, the hair, the makeup, the posture…No.

  • sherrietee

    Did she forget to brush her hair before stepping out of the limo? Droopy hair, droopy dress, droopy face. Someone isn’t taking their anti-depressants.

  • cocohall

    She looks like she could be Elizabeth McGovern’s daughter. Something about the pose, the toothless smile and the chin pointed downward in these pics is giving me Lady Cora. That dress is giving me agita. Who doesn’t want snack caddies on their hips? And the hair. That’s Coachella hair, dear.

  • Kathie

    That dress is hiddy and she looks like she just rolled out of bed with last night’s makeup, applied during a slumber party, is still on.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    She looks like she got busy with someone on the limo ride to the event.

  • Wink

    She looks a bit like Angelina Jolie — during her Billy Bob Thornton days. A necklace fashioned from vile of blood would be the perfect accessory for this sad look.

  • kategs

    boy does she loathe that dress…as do I.

  • snarkmeister

    She looks like a dark haired Goldie Hawn. Which is not particularly flattering when you consider how many years Goldie’s got on her.

  • A raisn colored trainwreck!

  • Lily

    Is it me, or is she morphing into Sally Field?

  • oatmealpie

    She looks like the bridesmaid who lost the bouquet fight.

  • Kelly

    Bad on so many levels — the slumping posture, the sad-sack face, the uncombed hair, the seriously unattractive silhouette of the dress, the pockets that make her look like one of those old-fashioned change-givers at a casino. The whole look is that of a really terrible morning-after.

  • demidaemon

    Hideous. Matronly. Hipbows. BAD.

  • alyce1213

    She looks like someone roughed her up just before she hit the RC.

  • Fannie Wolston

    nice color on her, maybe only her.

  • MaggieMae

    Look! That woman looks a lot like Katie Holmes!

  • lecoffeeaddict

    FMO, methinks.

  • Sofia

    She is boring and this dress is awful. She looks like shes trying to look British eccentric and it’s not her. Go back to the Gap.

  • dmkava

    Not trying to be mean, but if she didn’t live in NYC, would she get as much attention?

  • Clash D

    OH she CANNOT work those droopy shoulder thingys. It doesn’t look good on her! I’m fine with the rest of the dress.

  • abfidy
