Is this a thing we have to tell people now? That pleated, metallic balloon pants should not be worn on humans except possibly at Halloween if you’re going out as a “Solid Gold” dancer? Is this like those “Not to be taken internally” warnings on shampoo bottles? Somehow, there are people out there who need to be warned of such things? Fine, then. Consider this your Style Surgeon General’s Warning: Pleated metallic balloon pants: NOT A GOOD THING.

Honestly, people.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Can’t touch that. (And I don’t want to.)

  • Artesian_Belle

    Ummm her bangs look better than usual?

  • schadenfreudelicious

    That outfit is more of a nightmare and less of a Dream….

  • kim bunchalastnames

    … and, if you do, can you add that, if you’re going to wear a metallic top (or bottom), don’t wear a metallic bottom (or top) with it? because she’s definitely getting her C3PO on.

    • demidaemon

      She is definitely going for the gold-plated droid look.

  • ktr33

    Looks like an “auf wiedersehen, you’re out” moment.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I have resigned to the fact that Rashida is never going to learn to dress herself or pay someone to help her. I has a sad.

    • Kate Andrews

      Come on, Amy Poehler. Pull her aside and be her “get a grip” friend!

      • demidaemon

        Yes, give her a dose of the 5 Gs.

    • ryenerman

      Yes, just reading her name in the title without looking at any pictures I thought “Oh what now” because I already knew the chances of it being good were slim

  • Kent Roby

    Even the backdrop looks depressed about her look.

  • disqus_m4fxxyHmqB

    pity because that color looks great against her skin tone…

  • Crystal




    • Anna

      Not Legit. Rashida needs 2 quit

  • decormaven

    I am going to dream I didn’t see this.

  • sherrietee

    Wait … is that some bizarre hair fascinator thing on her head or just poorly placed foliage on the wall behind her? It’s driving me to distraction. (Which is good when I tried to focus on the pants you were complaining about, I suppose.)

  • I blame that alien creature growing out of the side of her head.

  • Sarah

    Oooh. WikiHow: How To Make A Slim, Lovely Girl Look Puffy and Bloated.

  • KinoEye

    It’s like those warnings on hair dryers that helpfully inform you that using the hairdryer while in the shower or asleep are generally not great ideas. They will only be useful to the type of dumbass who probably won’t read them, and will thus end up as the newest recipient of a Darwin Award.

    Maybe she’s trolling the people at Lanvin/Living Beauty — I can’t think of a less appropriate outfit for an event titled “An Evening of Fashion.”

    • Sarah

      Is that ur kitten?!? Omg that’s cute stuff.

      • KinoEye

        It is indeed — she is known as Gracie, and will no doubt accrue a string of other (increasingly ridiculous) names in short order. She is the dictionary definition of cute. She somehow managed to wrap herself in that rafia bow and spent a good 15 minutes trying to get out, giving me ample opportunity for photos. I’m sure I’m annoying the people on Facebook and Instagram with a constant stream of kitten photos, but I couldn’t care less.

        • Sarah

          That is adorable. I love ridiculous cat names. Mandy, my avatar, is also Manders, Mandini, Little Miss, Miss Tinypants, Cow-Cow, Ultimate Grand Supreme, and The Chairwoman. (Of the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, of course.)

          • kimmeister

            Does she have an actual pair of tiny pants???

            Then again, my kittehs have a whole slew of ridiculous names that have no basis in reality.

          • Sarah

            No, but she has a tiny rump, and fluffy legs, so if you watch her walking away, it’s tinypants-esque. I call one of my other cats Mr. Smallmonkey (Munx for short) and he is neither small (for a cat) or a monkey, obviously.

          • KinoEye

            Menchkibibbles is among the more ridiculous names I’ve bestowed on a cat. No idea where it came from. Gracie is Little Woman, Little Missy, Graceface, and a few others so far. Haven’t come up with a unique nonsense name for her yet, but it’s a high priority.

          • demidaemon

            I love that you all are like, “Let’s ignore the hideous elephant in the room. Look over there: cute kitties!” Not that I blame you. At all.

        • So cute!

  • ScarlettHarlot

    This looks like something Barbie and the Rockers would wear circa 1986.

  • Emily Smith

    Ooh dear I thought this was a jumpsuit at first.

  • @Biting Panda

    I blame JLo.
    I don’t know where they are all finding this material, but it should all be burned. Luckily, it looks highly flammable.

    • marlie

      The only thing you have to worry about is the toxic fumes from setting those clothes on fire.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Shew-eeee…that’s so bad. So so bad. Face and hair looks s’alright tho.

  • alyce1213

    Gee whiz, this getup is so bad. The other pieces we see in this Lanvin collection look like utter crap. What is that pink schemata on the runway?

    • Sarah

      Heh, autocorrect? Schemata: a representation of a plan or theory in the form of an outline or model – Clearly that model is representing Oooogly.

      • alyce1213

        Oh gosh, I didn’t catch that autocorrect. Funny.

        • Sarah

          Why wouldn’t autocorrect recognize “Schmatta?” It is such a widely known technical term 😉

  • jonnyf8

    She is so pretty and fun, I really wish she’d hire a good stylist. These funny ladies really have a hard time getting it right. It’s like they’re afraid if they get too pretty no one will laugh with them anymore.

    • j_am

      Agree completely!!

    • MilaXX

      She was at one time working with Brad Goreski.

      • demidaemon

        She obviously isn’t now, because I would not want to be a stylist associated with this.

  • Danielle

    She’s fucking with us. She had to be.

  • Capt. Renault

    Maybe she works nights fighting chemical fires.

  • MilaXX

    The tshirt on it’s own could have been cute. Pair them with a skinny black pants and killer heels. Leave off the tuxedo jacket and balloon pants. This could have worked but it put together all wrong.

    • Sarah

      Yeah I don’t care for the shiny bits but I like the jacket on its own. I’m sad for it that it had to be associated with this nonsense.

  • Daisy Walker

    That outfit is an abomination to all mankind! Those pants need to DIAF except they’d just repel the heat.

    • marlie

      The fumes are probably noxious.

  • MzzPants

    …..I…wha??……um……there are no words.

  • marlie

    I don’t even know what to do about this woman anymore. So pretty, so talented, and so without even a hint of style or taste.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Suddenly I’m craving a baked potato.

  • TulipWorthy

    Oh my…

  • Mothra

    Omg that is awful. And that weird red makes it look like she was shot and is bleeding thru the lame.

  • Alloy Jane

    I can’t help but love an outfit that makes me laugh out loud. Cute hair, cute jacket, needs more pancake to be convincing. But hey, a half-assed clown is still a funny one.

  • RedRaven617

    IN HER DEFENSE: Lanvin gave her that to wear, didn’t they? Aren’t they accountable to creating such awful clothing? Jus asking….

    • Was she obligated to put them on, with exactly that styling?

    • kimmeister

      I’m mad at Lanvin for even inventing it in the first place, and making it available for human consumption.

  • Maybe she lost a bet? She kinda has a “I’m a woman of my word and this is not my fault” look on her face.

  • Jecca2244

    i dont think they are that bad. i think it is a case where they don’t work with the outfit on this person and they can’t be wrinkled. and they shouldn’t have been combined with the shirt.

  • amanda siegelson

    it’s almost as if she wore an outfit that would distract from the tragedy that is her hair/makeup. but it didn’t work, rashida! i still see you!

  • BlairBear

    all the wonkiness of a jumpsuit now in separates sold separately. That is definitely a win if you want the look of a jumpsuit but also want to make bathroom time easier. also there is an easy hammertime joke in there but I will refrain.

  • Shibori Girl

    If you must wear metallic pants (a circumstance I can’t envision) and you are not Amazon Queen of the Planet Sleaztonia, then at least ensure that the fit is like that of the model – loose. Because any other option looks chip in a chip way and emphasizes all those unfortunate horizontal wrinkles.

    PS – Wait! What kind of dreams would that Tee bring on? Not good ones, surely.

  • 25or6to4

    She looks like she’s about to cry in that first image… Honey, in those pants, I would too.

  • Lori

    Rashida dear, did you notice that the top and the bottom weren’t shown together even on the models? That’s what’s known as a clue. In the future try to catch those. Also, when your asking yourself what to put on to finish off your outfit “cater waiter jacket” is very rarely the correct answer.

  • sk8tfan

    She is starring in one of those late night tv ads “if you’ve done this lately you may need medication.”

  • MannahattaMamma

    But what would possess the House of Lanvin even to MAKE such a heinousity?

  • rkdgal

    Never has one so genetically blessed been so unable to flatter herself via clothing/hair/makeup. It’s positively baffling.

  • KT

    Hahahaha. Excellent call.

    At least her hair looks pretty…?

  • poggi

    I am hoping that those tendrils behind her are not plants, but are alien appendages and the reason she is wearing these pants is to hide her tail.

  • Vee

    “Jem”! She’s truly outrageous!

  • crash1212

    Oh. Honey. No.

  • Judih1

    She is a pretty girl, has famous rich parents, went to Harvard and she still can’t dress herself or hire the right person to style her. I guess you really can’t have it all.

    She dresses like she is Heidi Klum’s little sister. But instead of short, tight and shiny she goes for baggy, colorless and shiny

  • ChiKat67

    Wonder if she’s still being styled by “what do you mean denim overalls aren’t back?” aka Brad Goreski.

  • OffToSeeHim

    It leaves a bad taste in your mouth – pleated metallic balloon pants. Try it, say it out loud. You just want to go brush your teeth.

  • Don’t be silly, Solid Gold dancers don’t wear pants.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    It’s Rashida Jones. Her outfit’s hideous. I feel like this should get an OF COURSE.

  • nannypoo

    It’s no worse than the crap she usually wears.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp


  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    I call troll.

  • TropiCarla

    I <3 the Style Surgeon General(s).

  • disqus_h9EFLwrOYy

    Um, whatevs I like the kitschy effect it has… I’d trade out the sandals with black patent stilettos and a longer more fitting blazer/jacket.

  • demidaemon

    And she paired it with the matching shirt. Rashida, you had a moment there of near greatness, but it’s clear that you still need a style intervention.

  • cocohall

    Miss Rashida – if JLo can’t make the metallic Lanvin work, then you have no hope. But your hair is very pretty.

  • Oh Rashida. I defend you all the time here. I have to throw a flag on this play. Time called. This is a no.

  • macwell

    If she wore the top with a killer pair of jeans or skin pants, I think it wouldnwork, but since she was obviously intent on looking like a Solid Gold dancer..nevermind….:(

  • elzatelzabelz

    What Fresh Hell is that?

  • LaSylphide

    She kind of looks like that guy in the Tenderloin who wraps himself in tinfoil so he can receive messages from Saturn.

  • alliekat9090

    Pleated foil pants? Oh my Lord.

  • quiltrx

    Yikes…she’s even standing like “dear God please don’t look at my pants…why is this jacket so SHORT…”

  • GeoDiva

    Looks like one of those tinfoil emergency blankets!

  • DeniseSchipani

    Wait, you can’t take shampoo internally? Damn. (Reminds me of print on packages of nuts: May contain nuts)

  • Amel

    I know she always has this odd style, but I see her as kind of the ultimate hipster. She consistently goes ahead and picks the things she probably realizes everyone will think are weird. Maybe I just love Rashida Jones too much to be objective.

    • malarson2

      Agree. So much.

  • Aren’t we used to Rashida making…questionable…fashion choices by now?
