      Little exposed bits of skin like that always make my eye twitch.

      To me, it always looks like the top is riding up or the skirt is falling down. It never seems deliberate to me.

      I don’t know how I feel about this. I don’t know if the colors really work together, and considering everything else is so simple, those colors really need to work.

    • @Biting Panda

      Too Barbie.

    • Danielle

      I like the shoes, but that’s about it.

    • sugarkane105

      GTNYD. Oddly though, I think the clashing lipstick and nail polish are bothering me the most.

      • Twigg

        I agree with the GTNYD. Way too tricky for her.

    • Betsy

      Love the skirt, hate the top. I think the matchy shoes were actually a good choice only because they are quite bare while providing interest. They offset the yards of plain satin.

    • In_Stitches

      It’s not sleek enough to be so unadorned. She needed to hammer it home with some metallic accessories.

    • Anna

      Those taffetta ball skirts will never fail to read as anything but late ’90s prom to me. And now all I’m smelling is Victoria’s Secret Love Spell body spray and hearing Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing.”

      • Danielle

        Stahhhhhp the memoriessssss

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        Never forget the world’s worst prom dress: Larisa Oleynik in 10 Things I Hate About You. The skirt was tulle, but still.

        • Anna

          Ha! I had to google to refresh my memory, I burst out laughing and then I remembered I wore something similar. And my date wasn’t as cute as Joseph Gordon Levitt (TOTALLY forgot he was in that!).

          • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

            I definitely wore the (iridescent!) taffeta ball skirts two years in a row, but I flatter myself that the top halves of my dresses were better-looking.

            • Anna

              Iridescent, nice! Yeah, I never did the crop top but I definitely had a black one and a bubblegum pink tulle one. I was a big fan of Aqua then too ;-).

            • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

              I knew there was a reason I liked you (beyond your sparkling wit.) Mine weren’t crop tops, just two-piece. One was a forest green/gold boned corset-style minus the lacing and the skirt had black flocked roses, the other was a cobalt blue/purple halter with a terribly classy scattering of rhinestones. Both kept my never-flat abdomen well concealed! I think I still have them in a box in my closet and I suddenly want to dig them out XD

            • Anna

              Thanks, that’s so sweet :). Oh, the black flocked roses! I had a charcoal grey spaghetti strap one that laced up in the back and had a knee-length full skirt (with tulle, of course). I have broad shoulders but I was still desperately trying to convince myself that 1998 was the year that spaghetti straps were going to work for me. I think I wore it to my first-year university charity ball and was very pleased with myself at how sophisticated I thought I was.

              I know I still have the ball skirts in storage somewhere, I wanna dig them out now too. Oh, ’90s formalwear, so endlessly entertaining.

    • paginatrix

      She looks pretty in clean, bright colors. The shoes are way cool. That big skirt is overpowering her tiny frame, though.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The clean, bright colors are much better for her than that white top she wore for the group photo. I’m never going to be a fan of the cut-out, but at least Leslie’s got some color. Love the shoes.

        • holla

          I loved the look until I saw the patch of skin. She looks good overall, but the patch just bugs a little.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I don’t think I’ll ever truly get why designers decide to add a cut-out to their work. Go figure.

    • Janet B

      The bottom of the bodice looks wonky.

      • barbarienne

        Oh, good, I’m not the only one who sees it! I was trying to decide if it was the angle, or if that bottom hem of the bodice really is uneven, and unintentionally asymmetrical. I think the hem is indeed uneven.

      • Ediths_Head

        Looks as though it is folded under for her. Yikes.

    • SewingSiren

      What on Earth is going on in that movie poster?

      • Sarah

        Something undignified.

    • Little_Olive

      I’d like to know if which of the colors are the actual ones; on Leslie they looks lackluster and don’t really go, while on the model they sing but we all know how deceiving the lighting in fashion shows can be.

      Aaaanyhoodle, it’s… not for her. Too young and model-y.

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

      I really don’t understand why ostensibly the same event, but in different countries, attracts such different levels of dressing. I mean, the event you wear a full ballskirt to is not the event you wear a silk slip to, is it?

      • Monabel

        I question whether some of these folks think it through to that extent.

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

      Personal best. Let that stir the imagination.

      • demidaemon

        If this is a personal best, I am very, very sad.

    • housefulofboys

      I like it, but then I’m always a sucker for hot-color combos.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I agree about the color combo, my favorite! My husband doesn’t understand…I don’t like the strip of skin, perhaps this needs an elaborately embroidered waist cincher.

    • Sarah

      Nay, extraneous peekaboo and mermaid hair. Also, what is wrong with chin-up pics, Leslie? I feel like every time I see you you’re tucking that mother as far back as it can go. Luckily for you, you’ve not an ounce of fat there, but still. Other poses are good.

    • Kent Roby

      I love this; it’s fun, Springy, and flattering. This girl is going to a PAR-TAY, not a funeral, and there is no lace within miles. I want to buy her a couple of drinks and listen to her spill the gossip on her costars.

      • cocohall

        methinks she has already had a few drinks. She looks well into her party mode here. I bet she is a lot of fun. She looks cute.

      • kirkyo

        It’s very pretty. I think the red lip was a mistake, however.

    • marlie

      I sort of like the dress, but the peek of belly skin was unnecessary. I LURVE those shoes, though, and these are really great Spring colors. .

      • kimmeister

        I wouldn’t like those shoes with a shorter skirt due to their leg-shortening properties, but with a gown that has a modest slit, I’m all for them!

      • Kent Roby

        For me, without the peek of skin it would look more like a full-on ballgown instead of separates, so I’m actually fine with it here.

    • what not

      Prom dress, circa 2000.

      • Kent Roby

        I read this as “Porn dress”; I’m clearly too deranged to have hope for a normal life.

    • TAGinMO

      I….like this?

      • CNM

        I like it, too!

        • vvv03

          Third like here. I think she’s lovely and kudos to her for still having a body that can rock a little bit of bare midriff without looking like she’s trying too hard.

    • Kitten Mittons

      I like this way more than I thought I would. I think it’s because this is something that I could never ever wear (both the colors and the style), and she looks pretty great.

      I really love those shoes, though.

    • Imasewsure

      I’m so glad she loves it… I don’t think I do….but it’s not awful… hate the matchy shoes but it is nice to see some spring colors

    • ScarlettHarlot

      The top looks poorly constructed, and there’s a weird effect on the bottom hemline of the top.

    • boweryboy

      Nope.

    • kmk05

      I don’t know if I like this. I love the shoes, but the top and the skirt are strange. The colours work better on the model (maybe because the skirt looks more orange under bright lights?) and the top is a little awkward. Definitely not loving the hair.

    • aahlife

      The bottom edge of the top on the models version is straight, but on Leslie, it dips up, which is not flattering. And too many different reds, including her lipstick and shoes.

    • decormaven

      Just because your belly is winking at us doesn’t mean this look gets a pass. She’s trying hard to sell it, but it’s not working for me.

    • Jacob Bowen

      The left picture in the third picture down is a HILARIOUS modified duck-face. And, I don’t understand why everyone is trying to make this color combo work. It hasn’t, and I don’t think I’ll ever like it. And, while I do like the skirt, the top just looks like it tore off, instead of being an intentional crop top. OUT…wait, that’s not this post.

      • Kent Roby

        I’ve always liked fuschia/orange combo (especially for costumes, with gold accents); it always reads “beautiful Indian sari” to me. While I’m one of the few who like this look, just imagine how Lupita would make this sing!

        • Jacob Bowen

          I can see Lupita making the colors work because they would play BEAUTIFULLY against her skin tone, there would be GREAT contrast, but on Leslie Mann I am less than thrilled.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I really love that skirt…but the “top” is just a piece of fabric. Such a shame, cus this could have been really great on her.

    • Sam Smith

      Yes, yes, yes to the shoes. And since she looks super fun to hang out with, I’m going to say yes, even though there isn’t much that I like here (other than the shoes).

    • JulieTy

      It freaks me out how little she looks like “herself” in the poster. She should stand as far away from it as possible!

    • MilaXX

      This is rather unexpected from her, but I like it. The color is great on her.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Um, no. On a model 20 years younger, maybe. I don’t like the colors together- too close yet too far apart.

    • LadyVimes

      I’m never a fan of clashing pinks and reds on a bright red carpet. It makes me twitchy.

    • Malia C.

      I actually like it.

    • KT

      Oh I love this. She looks totally adorable and fresh — love that she’s not afraid to have fun with her clothes. I haven’t seen any other photos from this event, but I’m going to go ahead and predict that she ends up looking the most youthful, and Kate Upton will dress like an octogenarian, because The Other Woman seems very intent on promoting irony.

    • demidaemon

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPE. Looks like two separate bolts of fabric that were stapled together and shoved on a body. And the shoes are way too on point, color-wise.

    • J. Preposterice

      wow, that fabric goes cheap-looking under harsh lighting

    • GillianHolroyd

      Love the color combo but the bodice does not play nicely with the skirt. Not just that it’s hiked up. Something about the width of the waistband, it’s too wide and the strip of skin is too narrow.

    • Scot Meacham Wood

      for me – I was going to give it a B . . . . maybe a B-. It’s not a ‘wheel-house’ outfit for her – but, she looks confident and sassy – so, it’s all good for me. Then . . . then . . . I saw those shoes. DAYUM. Those are some hot kickers . . . and she’s kinda elevated the whole look.

    • LeelaST

      Horrendous. Even on the model the top and skirt don’t go with each other color-wise or style-wise.

    • Kelly

      I don’t like the shoes — from the front, they are too stub-ifying (though they are better from the side). But the dress appeals to me; it looks fun and different, and it flows well, and she looks very comfortable in it. Wish she didn’t have red lips.

    • roche

      I think this is gorgeous on her. She’s like Jean Arthur from the 30s, a really great face and smile. It’s LA, so I’m assuming it’s warm. Here in NYC it’s still in the 40s/50s so you couldn’t get a way with all this skin. Love the shoes and hair.

    • rebeemoon

      That’s a mighty fine pair of sandals.

    • quiltrx

      Kinda cute, and she seems to love it. Don’t need the belly strip (reminds me of Big Daddy when she had worked at Hooters LOL). And that fabric looks expensive on the model, really cheap on Leslie…not sure if it’s actually different quality or the lighting.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      She is the world’s biggest fan of colors that look horrible with her skin. This includes hair dye choices.

    • icm

      Top looks like a coloured body cast

    • Crystal

      YOU ARE A GROWN ASS WOMAN. WHAT IS THIS CROP TOP BULLSHIT?

    • SophieCollier

      You poor dear. Lupita just wore this for the People Magazine Most Beautiful issue.

    • kfizz

      Best she’s looked this whole media tour, IMO. It’s a little ridiculous, but it’s totally working.

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

      ML needs to re-think that top…. idea ok…not exactly new…. but poorly executed!

    • bringbackbeatles

      Usually, I agree with most, but I’ll stand alone on this one. I love it. I love the dress, the shoes, everything, but the lipstick. I would have preferred something a bit less, like the model is wearing, or something a bit softer and not so almost orangey red. I think the actual dress looks better on her than the model. I’m behind a couple weeks on the posts, but this is potentially a personal best from everything I’ve seen before.

      …but that’s just me, lol.
