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.
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.
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!
She’s best in leather. I’m not sure that these kind of frocks work on her.
This outfit is at least more interesting, but she’s in that same category of actress as Oatbiel for me.
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.
My reaction is always, “Oh. She’s STILL around,” whenever I see her.
She’s really pretty, but I’ve never actually seen her in anything. I like the bodice on the dress and that’s it.
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.
Me too! I was all “why is she so boring? Isn’t she a great singer?” and then I realized it’s not her.
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.
Disqus is very hungry lately. Keeps happening to me, too.
Me three. Bon mots aplenty have been lost to the ether.
I just posted the exact thing about the spirals before I scrolled down to read the comments. Great minds …
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.
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
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…)
Nipples: An important part of any thesis.
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.
My kingdom for a skinny black belt!
Not really digging the op art + peplum combination.
When Spirographs Attack!
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.
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.
Congratulations dress, you made Ashley Freakin’ Greene look heavy.
Almost always hate the underskirt look. “Your slip is showing” is often my first reaction. Channeling my mom…
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).
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.
I like how the sandals play off the swirls in the dress, but outside of that this is not her dress.
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.
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.
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.
Yikes, I’ve never seen it but her storyline sounds gruesome. Good for her though for being more interesting than the lead 😉
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.
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.
This dress looks oddly mother-of-the-bride to me. Perhaps it’s the hide-my-hips-while-inadvertently-making-them-appear-larger peplum.
From the neck down, I’m bonkers for it. Can you imagine this on Queen Lupita?
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
The pattern on that dress looks like those hideous swirls of chocolate sauce restaurants insist on decorating their dessert plates with.
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.
Either the pattern or the tricksy skirt. Not both. Personally, I’d pick the pattern.
I don’t love the print, but I’m into the shape of the dress. Hair and makeup are great.
I like her head and her shoes, but the dress isn’t working in my opinion.
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.
Agree. The underskirt is totally pointless and detracts from the look
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.
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.
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?
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.
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
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.
Great shoes. They look painful as hell, but they’re awfully sexy.
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.
Ironically, this dress is made from a polygraph of her stylist saying (falsely) “That print looks so cute on you!”
