      Mauve leather is never a good idea.

      • Mrs. Julien

        It looks like Hannibal made it for her.

      • Kristi Mitchell

        I was just going to say, is Mauve SERIOUSLY making a comeback? God I hope not.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Talk about a difficult color to wear, and mauve is it. Mauve leather is really odd.

    • In_Stitches

      It’s just a little too close to ‘flayed human skin’ territory for me. I like the shape and the materials…just not that color.

      • Kiltdntiltd

        I was about to go there. There is an inherent EYEW factor in play, here.

      • BayTampaBay

        I think the dress is just plain ugly.

      • conniemd

        My immediate question on looking at the dress was if it was skin below the black. Ridiculous of course, but that was how it looked.

      • Badriya Al-Badi’a

        Yeah, my first thought was Ed Gein.

    • clatie


    • RussellH88

      Buffalo Bill is a better seamstress than I thought. His human dress turned out better than I thought.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        “It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.”

      • smayper


      • zenobar

        Put the lotion in the basket.

    • Denise Rambo

      The top is much better when you see it up close and realize that it’s not tweed like it looks from a distance.

    • SewingSiren

      Are the earrings designed to make your earlobe look super long? If so, success!

    • Karen Belgrad

      Did she put the lotion in the basket before she put the dress on?

    • Julie

      The dress is ew, and the hair/makeup choice makes her look much older than she really is.

    • teensmom99

      Somehow I like this more than I should.

    • KinoEye

      Gucci? Are we sure this isn’t Ed Gein, designing from beyond the grace?

    • RohanMBN

      Does she have a fingernail on her ear?

      • FibonacciSequins

        That was such an unfortunate way to accessorize a leather dress.

        • RohanMBN

          I can appreciate her story telling through fashion ability though.

      • KinoEye

        Can’t unsee. But I guess it’s of a piece with a dress that’s reminding so many kittens of Buffalo Bill’s, um, “creations.”

      • DuBey2

        OK, up until your comment I was gonna disagree & say “I really LIKE the whole look. Especially the way its accessorized.”
        I stand corrected.

    • FibonacciSequins

      Finally, someone’s wearing a color that works for her.

      • Mrs. Julien

        But in a texture that just screams “FLAYING”.

        • FibonacciSequins

          Can’t have everything.

      • VicD

        I’m feeling like an outlier here, because I kind of love this one. I like the hair, the makeup, the jewelry, the shoes, the shape, the textures…

        • FibonacciSequins

          I think it’s all working too, but I do understand everyone’s reaction. That pale mauve is very flesh-like.

    • MarissaLG

      Honey, no. Was she emotionally scarred from St. Anglie’s powder mishap? Has she forsaken all face powders?

    • @Biting Panda

      That’s a lot of sheen.

    • AlexisPayne

      Those earrings are a little too on point

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      The color ruins what could have been a really great dress.

    • MinAgain

      Who designed this dress, the House of Bolton?

    • Latin Buddy

      This dress was obviously not meant for a lady with actual boobs

    • PastryGoddess

      Wow this not good. That color is horrific.

      Do I spy those f*cking Jimmy Choos again. Stylists, I thought we talked about this.

      • kimmeister

        No, the shoes are different! Those Choos have multiple places the straps meet on the vamp. I like these better.

    • Danielle

      ANY color but this one. Please.

    • what not

      Head inspired by a Robert Palmer video. Cute shoes.

    • MilaXX

      It’s okay, but I think I would prefer the leather part a different color, perhaps a rust or brown.

    • CocoShalimar

      I love you TLO but dayum lately the site has been lacking in diversity. Just saying, because I know it’s not intentional..

    • Imasewsure

      I think she did better than the model in styling the dress overall but I don’t like the dress and the earrings were a bridge too far

    • Shelby

      I’m not a fan of the dress (and doesn’t it feel heavy for summer?), but I love the shoes and earrings.

    • Vee

      If ever there was a person who could play Dame Elizabeth Taylor, this girl is the one. Forget HBC, I love her, but no. And HELL NO on LiLo.

    • ktr33

      Face is so gorgeous and flawless that I care very little about the rest. Shayna punim with perfect makeup. And I have no idea who she is, no previous bias.

    • ktr33

      OMG, get ready for a overshare: It just hit me, she looks oh-so-much like pix of my mom from the 50s, and my mom died a month ago. Freudian much?!

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      If only the color of that leather was more in the merlot family, I would have thought this dress was pretty cute. Love the earrings.

    • barbarienne

      The design is great and works for her, but that color is a bad idea. Yeesh.

    • poggi

      She is the best dressed blacksmith in town.

    • kimmeister

      Her lip color is great, but I don’t like the eye shadow wings.

    • BLauD

      Those earrings look as if someone hot glued some fake nails onto her ear lobes. Ewww.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        Cannot unsee…

        • Julie


      • Julie

        Cannot unsee.

    • Tricia

      Immediately thought of Buffalo Bill and his skin suit.

    • smayper

      Why the plastic top? I mean, it might be leather, but it sure reads plastic.

    • BlairBear

      I am so over leather dresses. They always look thick and heavy (gee wonder why) and they never seem to be flattering.

      • sundaynightaddict

        And when people wear them in Spring/Summer (as everybody seems to be doing lately), all I can think of is “Ugh, too hot!!”

        • BlairBear

          I agree. Also I wish leather would go back to being an outerwear/accessories thing.

    • Julie Chase

      The hair is waaaaay too severe, and that is some seriously wonky jewelry.

    • GillianHolroyd

      I like it and don’t mind the color; it goes well with the black trim.

      That lower left closeup though, that will be her look for the next 20 years.

    • marlie

      I don’t hate the dress as much as some of the other bitter kittens, but does the whole look read as really DATED to anyone else? That makeup and hair are way too late 90s for my taste.

      • SugarSnap108

        The only thing I really don’t like about the dress is the color. But yes, the makeup, hair and (to me) accessories are dated and just plain bad.

    • crash1212

      Love the earrings. That is all.

    • myra

      She has one of the prettiest faces I’ve ever seen, but her hair and makeup people never seem to do her justice. Why go for such severe looks? I understand that she loves high fashion and she’s usually very daring in her style choices, but a softer aesthetic from the neck up would work wonders on her. And Camilla, take this from someone who also has hooded eyes: smokey eyes are extremely difficult to pull off when your eyelids are barely visible. Hire a makeup artist who knows how to emphasize a hooded eye with dramatic liner and lashes. In fact I think that’s her fundamental problem, that she’s working with people who keep trying to pull off mainstream makeup looks on a unique beauty like herself.

    • Mazenderan

      I like the beaded bit – but don’t like the dress as a whole. The hair and makeup look harsh and unflattering.

    • demidaemon

      If the rest of the dress below the bust were rendered in a different fabric, i would love it. As is, once you get to the bust, it looks cheap and ugly.

    • Gatto Nero

      I think that leather at its best should read as tough, sexy, or luxurious, and this dress doesn’t.
      The structure and stiffness make it look the opposite of sensuous. And the color — a weird sort of off-flesh tone — is yucky.

    • EEKstl

      It’s a beautiful idea for a dress and would have been realized as such if the leather were black vs. that weird non-color.

    • blue808

      Awful dress and jewelry, but that FACE is world class movie star realness!

    • Qitkat

      Her face and the upper bodice of the dress are stunning. I have to stop there, admiring the closeup only.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      Might as well face it I’m addicted to love…. all she needs is a bass! Well, and a stylist that isn’t hooked on Hannibal

    • Kate4queen


    • DagnyReardon

      I like everything but the dark nail polish is overkill.

    • B_C_J

      Edgy & sophisticated & she wears it better than the model.

    • TigerLaverada

      Well, she looks as good in it as the runway model, which means pretty much nobody looks good in it. What a nasty color.

    • MartyBellerMask

      Dress is ugly, jewelry is worse.

    • TwiddlyStun

      That color made me think “skin dress,” and not in a good way. *shiver*

      • Gaby

        DITTO. Very “It rubs the lotion on its skin.”

        • TwiddlyStun

          LOL that did NOT make it better! OK, yes it did.

    • macwell

      She looks pretty good here.

    • musi_

      The top half is so…severe?

    • NBG

      This aspires to but fails spectacularly to achieve Game of Thrones realness. I think if you’re going to go down this road, go the eff all the way. Don’t chicken out halfway down the bodice.

    • quiltrx

      Pretty sure this is NOBODY’S dress. And wow, the styling is harsh.

    • LeelaST

      She looks elegant but that leather (and color) is so blacksmith/abattoir I just can’t.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      I can see that the cheese stands alone, but I think bitch looks fierce. Serving early-90s supermodel in the facial region. I didn’t connect the dress to a cannibalistic place, I admit.
