This is a thing behind which we cannot get. For one, you look like your undergarments are falling down. For another, you can’t wear a skirt over another skirt. New fashion rule. We don’t care if we sound like bitches. For yet another, those shoes don’t go with the look at all, nor does most of the jewelry. And finally, we really hate the rolled-up sleeves. You’re not baking bread, dear. You’re on the red carpet in Berlin. There are plenty of ways to pull off her brand of hippy-boho while making it look chic. She’s done it herself many times, which is why there’s no excuse for this one. Bad choices and bad styling.

    This is like sweatpants in dress form.

    • Kent Roby

      When it looks messy on the model, it is Nobody’s Look.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Exactly. Send this one down to the designer reject rack, stat.

        • Eveniah

          I live in Sydney and sass & bide are huge here, and they have created some beautiful things. Amazing pieces, actually. This dress, is just the navy dress, without the white skirt thing underneath. I have tried it on in real life, and this is NOT how it is meant to be worn. And another thing, it is meant to be a casual dress IRL too, something you wear to dinner with friends. She has managed to make the dress look bad and sad.

    • Amel

      In her defense, if I had had a baby within the previous month, I would for sure be in actual sweatpants

    • demidaemon

      YES. You have funneled my thought into words better than I could!

  • Carleenml

    the bracelets – tell me the thought process behind that nonsense.

    • barbarienne

      I like the Wonder Woman cuff. I think all ladystars ought to wear at least one WW cuff until they make a movie headlining WW (instead of her as a guest character). Drew should produce and/or direct it.

      • I second this motion.

      • holla

        I think they are working on a WW movie.

        • barbarienne

          They’ve been “working on a WW movie” for several decades now, and keep coming up with BS reasons why it wouldn’t be commercial viable. All code for “we don’t believe the all-important ‘males age 18-30’ demographic will see a comic book movie starring a woman,” despite not a shred of evidence to back that up (and considerable evidence suggesting otherwise).

  • Carleenml

    she looks like she’s making a Kate Hudson face. Stop it.

    • BrooklynBomber

      For some reason I can’t figure out I was seeing shades of Charlize Theron. I didn’t even realize it was Drew at first. And I love her!

  • EMV

    She looks like she styled her hair by showering, putting her hair in 5 braids, and then undoing it in the morning. The way I used to do in middle school.

    • kimmeister

      She also looked at SJP and said, “I oughta do my eyeliner just like that.”

  • DaringMiss

    I get that as a new mom, she is probably a bit sleep deprived and couldn’t care less about fashion, but there are some lovely, summery, flowy dress options that would look wonderful on her.

    • jen_vasm

      She’s a fabulously wealthy star who has jetted over to a movie premiere in Berlin. She has no doubt hired someone to take over the new mom duties and to assume the no-sleep look. Clearly she needs to hire a (new) stylist, too.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yes, sleep deprived, and so happy to be able to see her feet-fashion-sense impaired, which is why she ought to have a stylist who would have some great clothes ready and waiting for Drew.

  • geans

    Somewhere, Johnny Depp is doing a slow clap.

    • Carleenml

      I lol’d.

    • Kristi Mitchell

      Damn! you beat me to it. I was going to say TOTAL Johnny Depp vibe going on . . .

      • geans

        You can still say it: it bears repeating!

    • Imasewsure

      Except… fedora????

    • DuBey2


  • Alyssa

    I never would have thought that we would have come to a place where we need a rule saying you can’t wear a skirt over a skirt. To me, that just seems obvious. Can’t even deal with the rest…

  • MarissaLG

    I walk by the sass & bide boutique every day on my way to work. My God do they have some beautiful garments in the window. This dress is definitely not one of their best pieces,

  • ashtangajunkie

    She looks so pleased with herself. That’s both adorable and funny.

  • decormaven

    “I know! I know! I will wear ALL the pieces of jewelry from my jewelry box!”

  • Dorothy & Michael n/a

    The simpering smirk doesn’t help matters, either.

  • kimmeister

    That’s a boatload of jewelry, and not a single piece should be worn with any of the other pieces, ever. That’s hard to do!

  • Jennifer Bober

    That long pendant over that neckline is making my eyes twitch, big time.

  • tallgirl1204

    But she should call up Lea Michelle and explain how to do hair color. Those are some pretty locks.

  • Jessica Freeman

    The gold/yellow (?) stripe across her chest looks like a purse strap. This bugs to no end.

    • Nicole

      I thought the same thing! That’s what bugs me more than the skirt/skirt combo.

      • Whever

        Exactly! The skirt/skirt could look kinda cool, or at least intentional. The added trim on the neckline and the pockets, though? It just looks disjointed.

    • marlie

      Me too! I hate, hate, hate it.

  • ktr33

    Love the shoes, but not with this. Because “This” shouldn’t exist.

  • alyce1213

    It’s schlumpy, Drew, not boho chic.

    • paginatrix

      On the plus side, she’s totally ready for her Book Club meeting in Santa Fe.

  • Anna

    That other white thing ISN’T a slip? As in, it’s a skirt that is meant to be worn on it’s own? I’m almost kind of glad she wore the dress on top of it, I shudder to think what that would look worn by itself. At best, it looks like a slip, but really it’s more of a lining.

    That being said, this whole look should’ve never seen the light of day.

  • Danielle

    From the thumbnail and before I started scrolling, I had no idea this was a dress. Horrifying.

  • Glam Dixie

    At three weeks postpartum girl is obviously giving no fucks.

    • ConnieBV

      This was my exact thought. I can’t identify with starlets who look pre-preggo slim five weeks after the event, but boy can I identify with her here. I know she is a star blah blah and that there are waaaaaaay better options and likely her four nannies could have watched the kids so she could be styled to perfection by her team for an event she was paid to attend for her job but what can I say? My ovaries sympathize. Fuck it, bathe, cover myself, I’m out.

    • Tracy_Flick

      THREE weeks? Oh damn. Lady gets a pass from me. That dress is ugly and there are better choices. But the fact that she’s awake, upright, and wearing something other than stained pajamas is a victory.

  • I am going to give this look a pass as she apparently just had her baby. It looks like yoga pants in skirt form.

  • Carrie

    Shailene Woodley is going to steal this look for The Fault in Our Stars premiere, isn’t she?

    • DuBey2

      but with less makeup and deodorant

  • schadenfreudelicious

    This must be her “up all night with baby, pulled this shit off the floor and threw it on” look…

    • BrooklynBomber

      I’m thinking “up all night with baby, pulled this shit off the floor and threw it on, nothing fits, anyway” look. (I say that with complete sympathy.)

  • PeggyOC

    Talk about scroll down. I saw that top and thought “cute and very Drew”. Then I saw the skirt. Can we pretend she wore this with jeans and some cute shoes instead?

  • Coleslaw McGraw

    Just having a baby is not an excuse to dress like in the equivalent of trash bags.

  • Constant Reader

    Hair and face are glowing, gorgeous earth mother. I’m going to blame the outfit on sleep deprivation (maybe she kept forgetting she’d put jewelry on and sleepily added more) and pretend it never happened.

  • amanda lynn

    Going to have to use it: Scrolldown Fug.

  • FibonacciSequins

    For someone who just had a baby and is probably existing on next-to-no sleep, I think she looks great.

  • Alyssa_T_Robot

    i kinda like the look… or rather i don’t hate ot as much as tlo does, i think thats the most accurate response.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I like it from the waist up. From the waist down, it looks as terrible as the movie is going to be.

    • Introspective

      girl, i saw a commercial for it that had someone telling her and sandler “welcome to africa” and i was about ready to strangle everyone in sight. cause africa just cannot stop being a country in hollywood.

      eta: agree with the bk chorus that drew looks damn good for 3 weeks post partum, and i insist that all schlumpy comments be held off for her at least another month…

      • Jaeda Laurez

        Yeah, I can’t co-sign the schlumpy thing, at least right now. Especially since, depending on how she gave birth, she may not want anything all up on her midsection anyway. But that movie looks type terrible and offensive.

    • formerlyAnon

      Ya know, the last movie I liked that had Adam Sandler in it was The Wedding Singer. So I was hoping maybe reuniting him & Drew would be the charm. Then I saw a trailer. *sigh*

      • demidaemon

        They’ve done at least three rom-coms together (including this one). Of them, The Wedding Singer is the only good one, I think. At least, going off what I have seen in the trailers and my feelings about the concept of 50 First Dates.

  • MilaXX

    I want to give her a break for having birthed a human a mere 3 weeks ago, but this is bad. It’s a little too boho even for Drew. I wished she had just skipped the poledance for this movie altogether and stayed home chilling in post baby bliss. It’s an Adam Sandler movie, his core audience is gonna see it anyway. That said, this is really just a scroll down fug for me. I was okay until I got to the bottom of this look. One skirt at a time Drew, just one.

    • marlie

      I think she looks pretty fab for being 3 weeks postpartum (I didn’t realize it had only been that long), but I think she might have even looked better in a long flowy maxi dress or something, if she’s still going for comfort.

      • MilaXX

        Yup, a simple maxi would have been fine.


    That outfit seems to perfectly represent the movie she is promoting – horrible, embarrassing, and totally beneath her.

  • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

    Did she already have her baby? I thought she was like a jillion months pregnant right now and doesn’t look it in these pics.

    • MilaXX

      3 weeks ago

    • Kitten Mittons

      Yes, baby is out and about.

      Your name makes me so happy, I want to yell “Alright!!” in a Linda voice.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I so heard that in my head when I read it.

        • Kitten Mittons

          My husband and I quote Bob’s Burgers waaaay too much in our house. “Alright” must always be said in a Linda voice.

          And I really never get tired of telling my husband to “Be a man!”, so that he can yell back, “YOU BE A MAN!”

          • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

            This conversation brings me joy. Bob’s Burgers and Archer heavily dominate my boyfriend’s and my conversations. Whenever something annoys me, I say “I’m not interested in talking to you any more.” God, I love Bob’s Burgers!

          • Kitten Mittons

            We did a 5k race this weekend called the Crab Run, and we pretty much reenacted the Archer Season 3 dungeon scene the entire time. “These crabs, this time, were NOT my fault!” “Lana…Lana……LAANNNA. Dungeon-ness Crab? Get it? Cuz we’re in a dungeon? Just kidding, that was the last one. Crab Rangoon.”

            I’m always surprised at how little I think of Archer when I watch Bob’s Burgers, and vice versa. It’s not like he does the voices any differently. I love both shows, though, just love love love.

            ETA: Also, all current and future pets are referred to as “fox-eared assholes” in my home.

  • 3boysful

    Up top, Drew is all “what I wear when casually out and about.” South of the waist, it’s like Head Looney in some cult. Shoes are Gypsy Rose Lee for Daytime.

    Bless her heart. I cut her slack for being a new mom.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    This is so not ANYONE’s dress.

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t even think it’s the designer’s dress… she and her stylist must have made this concoction themselves…

      • Skippymom1

        I was thinking the same thing. And they achieved in the Linens section at Bed Bath and Beyond.

  • crash1212

    I love the idea of this, it just could’ve been deployed better. If we didn’t know it was a skirt under there, it would’ve just passed as a multi-layered look and I think it does. Just wish it wasn’t so wrinkly. I love the hair, makeup and jewelry choices. The style of shoe goes, but not that color.

  • suzq

    This is tough because Drew appears to be wearing the gown version of what is a very casual pant/top set. The pant/top set is super cute. This gown version is not casual enough to look comfortable and is to messy to look dressy.

  • Imasewsure

    Wow it got even worse when I realized it wasn’t just an ugly black shirt with ugly black harem pants (scroll down ugly). And WTF with the traditional putty pumps to cap it off? Donna Karan needs to rescue poor Drew immediately!

  • Imasewsure

    We’re adult women. We have babies sometimes… after you leave the hospital with your child, it really isn’t that hard to not look awful.. it really isn’t… no slack given, no slack earned.

  • Melanie

    She’s wearing an elastic skirt on the red carpet? Where are her gays? This is unacceptable.

  • siriuslover

    I don’t care if you sound like bitches, either, because you are absolutely right in everything you say here. Plus her hippie hair. I can almost smell the patchouli from here.

  • GeoDiva

    Love her post-birth glow… otherwise everything else is blah!

  • littlevase

    She had a baby less than a month ago so I am going to give her a pass.

  • lalahartma

    Whoa! Cranky! lol

  • what not

    You’re sure half an hour is enough time to dress, and then you try on several options and none quite works, and time gets short and you end up with the pairing you stuck together in the last five minutes. You know it never quite gelled, and you’re aware of it the entire party. Not that I know what this feels like at all.

    • Pennymac

      I’m thinking she really loved the top, and destroyed the closet to find something that went on the bottom, (none of which fit because she just birthed a baby), so she settled on an “underskirt” (?) at the last minute and hated what she was wearing for the entire evening. Not that I know what that feels like, either.

  • marlie

    I don’t hate this, but it’s just so… boring. It’s walking “blah.” Even her hair and makeup. Sorry Drew, go home and start again.

    ETA: That gold trim across her torso looks like a cross-body purse strap, and it’s really irritating me for some reason.

  • nannypoo

    I wouldn’t wear it, but I like it on her.

  • Shawn EH

    Was it impossible to find a $500 pair of jeans that day or something?

  • livesarah

    Sass & Bide are on my rational hate list. I have an okay-ish pair of S&B jeans that I bought after my beloved 10yo Lees died, but a decent pair of jeans is still never going to redeem all the dreck they produce.

  • Hehe! I love this classic TLo commentary.

  • quiltrx

    middle-aged commune windchime.

  • BrooklynBomber

    I’m very confused.

  • sk8tfan

    Drew, bringing back the 80’s realness.

  • formerlyAnon

    I respect she’s not even trying to do the “look how skinny I am just weeks after giving birth shtick,” but there’s not trying too hard and not trying hard enough. She’s erring toward the latter, but ya know – she gave birth, what? – a month ago? And she’s out promoting whatever it is she’s promoting – there’s a movie, right? I wasn’t back to work that fast after any of my kids.

  • It’s lady Johnny Depp!

  • KT

    GUH. I actually just muttered, “oh fuck” under my breath when I saw these. Like the kind of “oh fuck” you utter when you realize that someone has tagged you in a photo where you look absolutely horrendous, and it’s been online for hours. I’m sure Drew muttered that very same “oh fuck” when she saw these.

    I like the vibe that she’s trying to go for — dressed up hippie, it seems — but that silhouette could not be less flattering. There are WAY too many embellishments/pieces of jewelry for one look, the shoes are awful and don’t go, and the hair is really shitty. I know she just had a baby, but there are far better directions she could have gone.

  • cocohall

    I like that this look signals the return of boho Drew – she was looking a bit matronly during the pregnancy. But she is clearly out of practice. I am giving her the postpartum pass. Your uterus alone takes 6 weeks to return to normal size. The rest of your body, depending whether you are nursing may take even longer. Three weeks out? Any woman who is upright and covered deserves our support and kindness.

  • FionaTF

    Awww – She looks like a new tired mom. She’s probably been up most nights, several times a night, nursing her baby, and going days w/o even a shower. I would have hated to have to dress up for a red carpet in the first, I don’t know, 2 years, of my kids’ lives. The fact that she isn’t wearing sweatpants and an old t-shirt mean she is doing really well. Also – I am SO HAPPY to not see someone 4 weeks post-partum who has abused themselves back into a size zero dress.

  • MichelleRafter

    The woman had a baby less than a month ago, cut her some slack. For the mom of a 4 week old, she looks amazing. The casual boho hair, jewelry and flowy silk fabric go.

  • OffToSeeHim

    She has a new baby. Everything she wears gets a pass for the next three months, until she’s getting regular sleep.

  • RKA

    The gold cuff and the lasso of truth looking purse strap = working mom of newborn channeling WonderWoman. Poor Drew needs a nap.

  • Tee

    No pass due to new baby when you have her resources. She had a baby, not a psychotic break. Gay uncles called this one correctly.

  • I can’t imagine that dress being flattering on anyone.

  • throwaneyeonthis

    This is one of the most disappointing threads I have read on this blog. True, she has stylists, nannies, etc. but she still had a baby less than six weeks ago and she is already out there working. Can we all cut her some slack here? I would think other women should be more supportive and men shouldn’t even opine on somebody in their post-pregnancy state.

  • JynxTheCat

    Drew Barrymore; the original Honey Badger. She does not give one…

  • mila_8

    Please please please do not bring about an arrowhead jewelry trend. Wrong on so many levels. Just make it stop and you will save me many a public service announcement posts.

  • Gorengirl

    When Did Johnny Depp become her stylist?
