      It is making her look a bit wide and calligraphic in the hips and the shoes are too strappy for the dress, but I don’t hate the look.

      • decormaven

        Super calligraphic.

        • Sarah

          Expyalladocius!

    • marlie

      This dress is terrible on her; it makes her look thick around the middle, and I bet the designer thought that the print would do the exact opposite.

      ETA: The straps on her shoes look like they’d really hurt.

      • Ginmaru

        Looks like any minute she is going to break into an Irish Step Dance. Too bad, I think she has a really interesting face.

        Edited to add: ouch! I agree with you on those shoes!

    • Rhonda Shore

      She’s best in leather. I’m not sure that these kind of frocks work on her.

    • Anna

      This outfit is at least more interesting, but she’s in that same category of actress as Oatbiel for me.

      • marlie

        I wrote – and then deleted – that I’m surprised that they’re still trying
        to make her happen. And she’s still more interesting (and has more
        inherent style) than Oatbiel.

        • Anna

          My reaction is always, “Oh. She’s STILL around,” whenever I see her.

        • random_poster

          She’s really pretty, but I’ve never actually seen her in anything. I like the bodice on the dress and that’s it.

          • marlie

            The only thing I can recall is that she was in the Twilight series. They had her in a horrendous wig. That’s… about it.

        Whenever I see her name I think it is going to be Anna Kendrick, and then I am disappointed because she is not Anna Kendrick.

        • Sarah

          Me too! I was all “why is she so boring? Isn’t she a great singer?” and then I realized it’s not her.

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

      Disqus ate my post, so I apologise if it pops up again.

      I like that the swirls on the shoes echo the pattern on the dress, but I don’t actually like the dress. Too tricksy.

      • Fanny_Trollope

        Disqus is very hungry lately. Keeps happening to me, too.

        • Sarah

          Me three. Bon mots aplenty have been lost to the ether.

      • boweryboy

        I just posted the exact thing about the spirals before I scrolled down to read the comments. Great minds …

      • Qitkat

        Here’s a trick that works. Before hitting Post, select and copy your comment. You don’t have to paste it anywhere, but if it disappears, as Disqus seems to be doing to all of us today, then you can paste in the comment box and try again. My browser always remembers the last thing I copied.

        • Sarah

          I’ve been doing that, too, but I’m also working on my thesis, and I have pasted things like “It’s not her fault she has nipples” in the footnotes haha

          • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

            I strongly believe that line improves any paper, no matter the subject. The more random, the better. How else are we going to sink the message into America’s collective conscious? (Besides subliminal messaging in more widely distributed mediums, such as popular TV shows, I guess…)

          • KinoEye

            Nipples: An important part of any thesis.

          • demidaemon

            HA!

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

          I sometimes remember to do that!

          Anyway, I’ve just installed a bunch of updates and restarted my browser and it seems to be much happier now.

    • http://thejoyfulfox.blogspot.com/ Laura

      My kingdom for a skinny black belt!

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Not really digging the op art + peplum combination.

    • Tanya Wade

      When Spirographs Attack!

    • another_laura

      I think it’s the narrowing at the shoulders that kills the shape of the dress for me. It thickens her waist. Too bad, really. The shoes are a few straps too far.

    • Fanny_Trollope

      Tennis, anyone?

    • Lori

      Ugh, what is up with Disqus today? It ate my earlier post. Apologies if this turns up twice.

      It’s a dress made on a Spirograph and I just can’t hate that.

    • wisdomy

      Congratulations dress, you made Ashley Freakin’ Greene look heavy.

    • smayper

      Almost always hate the underskirt look. “Your slip is showing” is often my first reaction. Channeling my mom…

      • Qitkat

        I think it’s a cute dress, but the bottom would look less like a slip if it were rendered in one of the khaki greens(?) in the swirlies (it’s hard to differentiate the colors on my screen).

    • Glam Dixie

      So that’s who took my old spirograph. Cute in theory but makes her look a bit wide, she’s so pretty though, it makes it easy to overlook the faults with the clothing.

    • decormaven

      Doodle bugs.

    • boweryboy

      I like how the sandals play off the swirls in the dress, but outside of that this is not her dress.

    • KinoEye

      My comment disappeared into the Disqus ether, but: meh. Cute dress, but she’s resting on pretty, as I’m sure she normally does. I like the rings.

      The only thing I ever remember her doing were those commercials for some kind of water. She was naked or very nearly so. Apart from that, I can’t think of a good reason why she keeps getting invited to things.

      • Anna

        Wasn’t she in Twilight? I only ever see her in photos where she’s leaving the gym. She’s like a female Kellan Lutz.

        • KinoEye

          Oh yeah, she was, wasn’t she? As the vampire who got gang raped and then killed everyone in revenge, I think. Huh. She actually did OK with that — she was much more interesting than the lead, at least. That’s not saying much though.

          • Anna

            Yikes, I’ve never seen it but her storyline sounds gruesome. Good for her though for being more interesting than the lead ;-)

            • KinoEye

              Nope, I mixed up my vampires — her vampire had mental issues and could see into the future. Still more interesting than Bella. I once read an article that argued Twilight might not have been so bad if Stephanie Meyer focused on literally any other characters besides Edward and Bella, because they’re all more interesting. It’s a point to consider, but I think anything she writes would be pretty bad.

            • Anna

              I think you’re right about the other characters. I tried flipping through it once, and it wasn’t even the first book, I think it was the second one and my cousin had it lying around her coffee table (for the love of God, why, I don’t know). Anyway, the only thing I got from it was her going on about Edward. My most embarrassing diary entries from ages 12-14 weren’t as bad as that.

    • paginatrix

      This dress looks oddly mother-of-the-bride to me. Perhaps it’s the hide-my-hips-while-inadvertently-making-them-appear-larger peplum.

    • Danielle

      From the neck down, I’m bonkers for it. Can you imagine this on Queen Lupita?

    • Imasewsure

      I kind of like this because of the particular day (hot as hell) and event (I Heart Radio??? WTF Cares!)… she looks pretty and comfortable even if that style is not one of my faves for sure

    • Tarquin

      The pattern on that dress looks like those hideous swirls of chocolate sauce restaurants insist on decorating their dessert plates with.

    • LeelaST

      From the front it makes her look wider and “hippier” although that could be the camera angle. It’s sort of cute, don’t mind the design, but I’m getting ice skater/tennis dress.

    • lunchcoma

      Either the pattern or the tricksy skirt. Not both. Personally, I’d pick the pattern.

    • http://www.beautifymylifeblog.com Jessica

      I don’t love the print, but I’m into the shape of the dress. Hair and makeup are great.

    • julnyes

      I like her head and her shoes, but the dress isn’t working in my opinion.

    • crash1212

      Why, oh why, do designers try to be so tricky? This would’ve been a total win if it was just the dress part a little longer. Lose the under skirt thingy cuz it looks dopey. I like the shoe choice in that in mimics the print of the dress but not in an obvious way that those shoes in black would do. Pretty makeup and hair.

      • conniemd

        Agree. The underskirt is totally pointless and detracts from the look

    • FibonacciSequins

      Ashley has no discernible waist if you’re looking at her head-on. I think this Judy Jetson frock was chosen to give her an hourglass shape, but somehow it isn’t working. She also needs a makeup artist with a lighter hand.

    • KT

      First impression: she’s very pretty, but she looks so much older than she actually is here.

      Upon further viewing: there’s way too much… swirling going on here. Swirls all over her dress, swirls around her feet, swirls up in her hair — and none of it looks quite right. It’s a tornado of fug.

    • Deena

      The dress makes her looks thick around the middle because she’s missing 2″ from the bottom of it! What the hell is wrong with women who have fallen for these ridiculously short hemlines. I don’t mind short when it works but when it’s not flattering why bother?

      • Mr. J.

        Amen.

    • demidaemon

      This is cute, if a bit short, but that peplum is too big and obscuring. It needed to lose at least two inches of fabric.

      • Amel

        Does that count as peplum? I read it as just a skirt on top of another skirt … though I guess that’s kind of what peplum is, if the top layer was shrink rayed

        • demidaemon

          It’s definitely a peplum. If it is connected or part of the bodice, it’s a peplum. It’s just hard to tell in this case because the peplum is longer than the actual skirt, which is a big proportional no-no.

    • ankali

      Great shoes. They look painful as hell, but they’re awfully sexy.

    • Clash D

      Oh man, a deployment of a thin, simple black belt would have made so. much. difference.
      She has a STUNNING face. I loved her DKNY campaign from a few years back.

    • Kent Roby

      Ironically, this dress is made from a polygraph of her stylist saying (falsely) “That print looks so cute on you!”
