    she’s the picture of no effort. also: too bridal.

    • demidaemon

      Yep. Way too bridal. I would also say a colored belt would have helped this outfit out immensely.

  • madeofcarbon

    girl no. why are you wearing someone else’s wedding dress.

  • Post-birth DGAF glow, yes? She looks happy and healthy, and that’s really what I like to see on the red carpet, more than anything else. (Because yeah, I don’t see anything kind to say about the dress itself. And her hair looks like she just came from a beach in Hawaii, which makes me long for Memorial Day already. Not that I’m going to Hawaii.)

    • GeoDiva

      No worries….it suppose to rain all weekend in Hawaii.

      • Kate4queen

        I live in Hawaii-it’s been raining on and off for 2 weeks now-we are all very stressed…;)

        • holla

          when you say rain in Hawaii, do you mean pouring rain? when I visited, it rain everyday, but it was like 30mins light rain and it dried out with in 5mins.

          • Valerie Little

            I lived there and there were weeks it rained all day long. Not the afternoon shower type.

          • holla

            that would give me the sads

          • Kate4queen

            No, it really poured sometimes all day which is quite unusual for this time on year! I’m on the Big Island. Usually we get a quick shower around 4 and then it sometimes rains at night in May but it’s been a lot heavier. We have California’s rain I think!

    • Her hair doesn’t look healthy… All hairs are already dead, but some are more dead than others?

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    She is at least 10 years too young for that matronly of a dress.

    • Imasewsure

      10 more years isn’t going to make that dress any less ugly

      • demidaemon

        What she said.

  • AlexisPayne

    Drew, who hurt you?

    • jen_vasm

      That ostrich’s expression in the poster behind her sums up my feelings on this dress.

  • hughman

    “Her father can’t take her to the Purity Prom because he’s at a convention in Des Moines but I thought, what the heck, I’ll dress up and bring her!”

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I love you for this.MWaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!

  • DesertDweller79

    I liked her failed attempt at boho chic the other day better than this.

  • Sarah

    That dress is….not a good shape. Anywhere. ‘Nuf said. Her hair needs combing, but I like her lipstick and her smile.

    • demidaemon

      I’m glad you said it. Although, a belt may have helped her out marginally.

      • Sarah

        Marginal being the operative word. I think it looks pretty bleh no matter what. That dropped hem with a big ‘ol sheer curtain attached makes both the ladies pictured look less than flattered. Design fail.

  • sleepycat

    chaste wedding-night nighty. I will say she does have a beautiful after-birth glow.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Her complexion and makeup are lovely. I do wish that she’d chosen a different silhouette than this dress.

  • decormaven

    She is so pretty, but this dress is not.

  • Julie Chase

    Not good, girl. But she looks happy and I love the lipstick.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Where is our goofy, earthy, hippie Drew?

    • ktr33

      RIGHT! Rich bohemian hippie earth mother would be a great look for her to rock post-partum!

  • MilaXX

    I like her face and hair, but this dress just doesn’t feel like her usual style and I don’t think the color is working for her.

  • Karen Belgrad

    It may be a bridal nightgown with beach hair, BUT I give her 100% credit for not conforming to Hollywood’s weird rules about post-pregnancy weight loss. She looks happy, healthy, and new-mom glow-y.

    • MilaXX

      Agree. I don’t need another “I just gave birth” miraculous weight loss poster child. I don’t like the dress, but I’m okay with her looking like the average woman who gave birth barely a month ago.

      • Tanya Wade

        Agreed. I’m focusing on her lovely face.

      • Trent

        SO agree. Not everyone can be Gwen Stefani and back to a size two a month after giving birth. I love Drew and her “IDGAF — if I have to pole dance for this movie right after giving birth, I’m gonna be comfortable” attitude.

    • another_laura

      I don’t think anybody is disagreeing with her post-baby body and happy face, just that she could have picked a better dress.

    • ktr33

      I have NO quibble with her post-partum body. Power to her! But why cover it in a wedding dress in the remainder bin?

    • I’m all about her not rushing to lose weight (actually I think she’s setting a good example in that respect) but she could have gotten her hair done and worn a better dress.

  • tallgirl1204

    Oh dear. I don’t think she should beat herself up to lose baby weight (or any other kind of weight, frankly), but one must dress the body one is in, and this doesn’t represent a successful effort. I think someone said “matronly,” and that is the death knell to any dress, no matter the age of the wearer. Drew by definition will never be matronly, so this is the wrong dress for her.

  • EEKstl

    Noooooooooo, Sweetie.

  • Sadly it doesn’t flatter her awesome post-pregnancy body which is healthy and REAL. She looks so happy, too.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I said elsewhere she looks tired, but yes, she also looks so very happy.

  • KT


  • Had a baby four weeks ago. Gets a pass on everything right now.

    I do like the color on her, though. I’m such a sucker for ballet pink.

    • ktr33

      YOU for sure get a pass.

  • CPK1

    Hiddy on the model and hiddy on Drew. This is the definition of nobody’s dress.

  • YoungSally

    She’s so adorable — just not in that dress….but she probably hasn’t slept since the delivery.

    That said, “Blended” sounds like a new thing from Starbucks

  • GillianHolroyd

    Hideous dress, but what shade of lipstick is that? Want.

  • sk8tfan

    Drew, I love you, but why are you wearing Miss Havisham’s wedding dress? Are you auditioning for the 1000th tv miniseries version?

  • Youbeguilemenot

    Oh dear.

  • FibonacciSequins

    That is not her dress. She looks soooo tired. Loving her makeup.

  • alyce1213

    I love her and her fecund body, but that dress is not the way to go. Tadashi Shoji, really? Well, nobody’s perfect.
    Also, postpartum is no excuse for unkempt, snarly hair.

    • ktr33

      it’s no excuse for unkempt, snarly hair IF YOU’RE A RICH AND FAMOUS MOVIE STAR LIKE DREW. (The rest of us? It’s TOTALLY an excuse!)

      • alyce1213

        Yes, that’s what I meant. She has people to brush her hair while she feeds the baby.

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    Oh GURL…

  • @Biting Panda

    Holy fucking awful.

  • SugarSnap108

    Adam Sandler and his ostrich are expressing my thoughts quite well.

  • BlairBear

    its very duvet and bedskirt.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Somehow this dress is both too matronly and too childish.

  • Danielle

    Grading her on the new mommy curve, so I think she looks passable and I don’t expect her to be turning it out.

    • siriuslover

      I agree. I think if she did her hair and got a better bra, she’d look great. Also, this dress should not be in pink. Not a great color.

  • PastryGoddess

    She’s been in the biz for mumble mumble years. Why hasn’t she learned how to dress herself?

  • Imasewsure

    She’s f***ing with us now, isn’t she? Good it get any worse?

  • ktr33

    why why why why why? and also, WHY?

  • Bonnie Blue

    I love Drew and she always seems so happy, her face looks really pretty but I think the dress looks too bridal.

  • GeoDiva

    Don’t care that she had a baby a month ago as she looks better than I did after mine, however that is the ugliest Tadashi Shoji I have ever seen. No No No!

    • Coolekat

      Could Octavia wear it?

  • ktr33

    On the Tadashi Shoji site, this number is presented as a wedding dress. It is a wedding dress. It is an ugly wedding dress. GirlStars? Don’t wear wedding dresses on the red carpet.

    • demidaemon

      Agree x1000.

  • Trickytrisha

    Dang, I’m pretty sure I saw a near duplicate of this dress, available in three colors, in one of those plus size catalogs for around $119.

    • FrigidDiva

      I’m pretty sure I sold this dress to a number of mothers of the bride or groom when I was a consultant at David’s Bridal.

  • Whoever let her out of the house in that should be shot.

  • CT14

    Mother of the bride and awful hair.

    I don’t care that she just had a baby. She can get her hair done if she’s going out, and she doesn’t have to wear ugly clothes just because she still has baby weight (like a real human being who eats and doesn’t work out nonstop to return to a size 0)

    Go home and try again, Drew. You’re better than this.

  • crash1212


  • Jeannie Shmina Greenwald

    Oh dear. The dress is unflattering altogether and what was she thinking with the ‘I’m letting my hair air-dry today’ look? Poor Drew. She looks haggard here– a totally preventable situation.

  • suzq


  • I understand she recently had a baby, but she could get her hair done and wear a more flattering dress. She has the motive and the means.

  • ellisd123

    I wish she would do something with her hair. I think this every single time I see her.

  • d4divine

    Post partum fashion decision?

  • Jacob Bowen

    Drew, honey, you are one of my FAVORITES on the red carpet because you are ALWAYS such an individual…but this does nothing for you. It may be that flowy bohemian shape that you tend to, but it is SO BORING!

  • nannypoo

    She looks pretty and happy, but it is no thanks to the awful hair and the hideous dress. Just think how beautiful she would look if those two problems were fixed.

  • Judih1

    Ugly bridal gown, Uglier hairstyle. There is not enough maternal glow in the world to make this look good

  • MarissaLG

    Beautiful new mommy, beautiful hair & makeup, UGLY dress.

  • FrigidDiva

    She could have opted for some flowy boho maxi styled dress for the red carpet that would have gone with that hair and looked so much better. That dress is just horrendous.

  • marlie

    I don’t like the dress, but I like Drew in it, if that makes any sense. I’m thrilled that she’s showing off her new-mommy bod, and not hiding it under layers of loose fabric.

    • ohayayay


  • FancyPhilly

    She’s on my celebrity love list. I just think she’s amazing… so I can forgive a lot. Plus she just had a baby. But I don’t like this on her. Too mother-of-the-bride, the drop waist is very unflattering, and the length is messy. I will say however from the ribcage up she looks beautiful as always.

    • VicD

      I love her also, and can forgive her quite a bit just in the name of quirkiness. But … this…. is…. awful.

  • formerlyAnon

    This dress is doing her no favors. It is actively working against her. Her hair’s a bit of a mess. But ya know what?

    This is the sexiest I’ve ever seen her. She’s never looked sexy to me. Here, she looks like rumpled bed sheets and good wine and hours of leisure time and . . . ahem. Well.

    ETA: The irony being that if she’s raising her own kids and just using nannies for work & convenience (vs. as a substitute for parents), that’s exactly the kind of good times she isn’t going to have for months and months and months. Perhaps she and her husband are experienced enough parents to have mastered “quick and creative.”

  • Amanda Miller

    Her face looks lovely. But the dropped waist is a special kind of awful and I think it’s time to retire that freaking hair.

  • Mother of the bride.

  • Kristin

    Oh, no. No to the dropped waist. No to the pale pink with that brassy hair color. Yes to her lovely face and the shade of that lipstick.

  • Jessica


  • kfizz


  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Oh no. Honey. Sweetie. You and Tadashi deserve better than this.

  • martha

    You just had a baby, you wear an empire waist & show off the rack

  • quiltrx

    Baby pink all over is a really hard color for most women to pull off. And the silhouette isn’t doing her any favors. Up a size may have helped, but I really don’t think that shape is right for her at the moment.
    That embroidery at the neckline is gorgeous.

  • It looks like she bought a wedding dress at a thrift store. A really acetate one. A rare misstep from Tadashi Shoji.

  • livesarah

    I had a baby 10 weeks ago. I am so impressed that Drew is even showing up for these things. Yay Drew!

  • PeaceBang

    New mommy can’t be bothered. And I can’t blame her. That dress is awful. The hair is more awful.
