      Looks great, except for the sheerness.

      • smayper

        My thought exactly. I do indeed see London, but I need not see France OR your undergarments in this shot.

      • JP

        Yep, I’m so over that sheer trend. It make beautiful dresses into skating costumes (but with longer skirts).

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I would like this much better if it were lined. I too am very over the sheer trend.

      • DesertDweller79

        I looked at the photos and my first thought was, “Oh, why does it have to be sheer?” Groan. I am so over this. It makes an otherwise beautiful dress look cheap.

    • BrianaJC

      boring and done before. color is good on her, though.

      • VicD

        Sorry, did you say something? I just dozed off……….so. boring.

    • Anna

      Dress is a vast improvement from the last outing(s). Can’t sign off on the bump-it hair though.

    • LeelaST

      Gown is pretty but the see-through to the bathing suit underneath is less than sophisticated. Also – mini bump-it hair and that flat center part – no.

      • 3boysful

        Love the fabric, but seeing that much leg is tacky.

      • holla

        if there was less sheer and a low chignon, she would be so polished.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Blue is a great color for her. All the styling choices are a little subdued for my tastes, but she should wear more dark colors like this. Lovely.

    • Guest

      I hate that pose. Too Wonder Woman.

      • Ginmaru

        Ohhh, I would have loved to see her bullet deflecting bracelets with this dress.

    • TrixieConQueso

      DREAMY. Even The Wind blew her hair at the right time!

    • The Versatile Chef

      Didn’t someone else wear this on the RC recently?

      • demidaemon

        Well, Darienne Lake wore a similar dress in the last episode of RPDR.

      • misstressofsylar

        All Elie Saab gowns look the same.

    • boweryboy

      So, granny panties under sheer dresses is still a thing?

      • Julie Ree

        I was going to say the same thing- it is just so tacky. A lined skirt would be so much more chic with the beautiful beading.

      • Danielle

        Much to my eternal chagrin.

      • demidaemon

        Unfortunately. Although there is no reason this one could not have been lined. In fact, it would have been a better dress with said lining.

    • barbarienne

      Still with the aging makeup and hair, but much less so than that last get-up.

      I like this dress. Nothing particularly unique, but it’s appropriate for the venue and she looks good in it. And more to the point, she looks as if she feels good in it! She’s vamping for the cameras, but it feels like she’s having fun.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        Right – it’s mostly a big recovery from the last post, so I’m giving her a lot of credit here.

    • gabbilevy

      Better than the sum of its parts.

    • imspinningaround

      It’s not terrible.

    • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

      At least she looks like a grown up. But fergawdsakes get your hands off your hips. There’s more than one way to pose.

    • http://recapscallion.blogspot.com/ Claire

      I saw the headline and said “Oh good, it’s hard to go wrong with Elie Saab couture” and then I scrolled down to the sound of trombones.

    • sienna elm

      Mark this day on the calendar Kittens! There’s an Olsen girl wearing something that’s not frumpy!!

      Could use a fancy necklace though.

    • Alyssa

      How many times have we said this in the past few years…it would be so much better lined!!! And with a necklace.

    • lunchcoma

      So ready for the sheer skirt and bodysuit trend to die.

      • Jessica Freeman

        here’s my fancy pants! I too, am with you. Is there a petition?

    • deelup

      Compared to every other time I’ve seen her, she looks fricking amazing. If she replaced the bridesmaid shoes and craft night earrings it’d be an attagirl from me.

      • kimmeister

        Way too matchy of shoes, for sure.

    • Glam Dixie

      Judging by the folks in the background, girl is freezing. This had the potential to be a beautiful dress but the granny panty, sheer skirt combo took all of the sophistication out of it and took it right to Tackistan.

      • Alyssa

        Tackistan…love it!

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Not bad, actually. She’s even young enough that I think the see-throughness is okay on her. Definitely better than the bore the last outing was.

    • Fuchsiaforever


      • demidaemon

        Me too. This make me want to take a nap.

    • FeminineLipstique

      It’s a pretty gown, but I feel that it would work better at nighttime.

    • BlairBear

      hmm no. the dress would be pretty if it weren’t sheer. and the racing stripe illusion on her legs is really bothering me. It looks like she is wearing track pants under her formal wear.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Scroll down needle scratch. The sheer killed it for me.

    • padma sallah

      I think this is the most movie-star she has ever looked. Of course I wish the hair and make-up were better but on the whole, not bad at all. Also any Bollywood buffs here who think she looks like a younger Rani Mukherjee? Because in a few pics, the likeness is startling.

    • PastryGoddess

      Why is that dress so SHORT? Did she suddenly grow to be 7ft tall?

      The sheer is slightly tacky for the afternoon, but it’s not the end of the world

      • CT14

        The sheer made me wonder how old she is.

        I think she’s old enough, but in my mind she’s the baby Olsen sister, so she shouldn’t be.

        At any rate, a dress shouldn’t distract the mind in that way.

    • MilaXX

      meh. She is boring.

    • marlie

      I love this, though I wish that the skirt were lined. But at least it’s not quite as obvious as usual. Elie Saab isn’t going to win any awards for originality, but he makes really lovely, detailed gowns, and sometimes that’s all you need.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      This dress is so beautiful I almost do not mind the sheer skirt. It would be a WERQ for me, if it were lined. :)

    • Danielle

      BEcause if ever there was a reason to wear Elie Saab couture, a Godzilla premiere is it.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      I actually like the sheer quality on this one. Otherwise, it would be a fairly pedestrian dress. And I really like the fact that she pulled her hair back behind her shoulders.

    • Synnae

      I wish she had worn this to the MET instead. I don’t even mind the sheer, it is not very obvious.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      A lot lof beading with sheer thrown in. BORING! HUNEY… stop posing like that and relax…looks stupid!

    • Tracy_Flick

      That color is so pretty on her that I’m willing to forgive the other sins. I’m grading on a curve with her sisters, who always look dumpy and never smile.

    • KayEmWhy


    • MM4321

      Take. The. Hands. Off. The. Hips. It’s a stupid pose and it does not flatter you.

    • ashtangajunkie

      What makeup artist insists on aging this young gal 10 years every time she hits a red carpet?

    • jjfg

      Two words: Grannie panties.

    • MarissaLG

      This is really beautiful. That said, I would have done the hair differently (maybe a fishtail side braid or chignon) and been a little bolder with the jewelry.

    • d4divine


    • Violentcello

      Her makeup looks nice. I hope she’s learned not to play with super glue before posing on the red carpet anymore.

    • demidaemon

      Amazing how an exquisitely beaded dress like this one can look so dull. Darieenne Lake could have worn it better. This needed a necklace, better styled hair, and much stronger make-up.

    • Kathie

      I so wish that was not a sheer skirt. Other than that I’ll give her an “Atta girl”

    • Fräulein K.

      I would be on board with the sheer skirt if the hair wasn’t so lackluster.

    • BLauD

      Sheer skirts will never look like anything but fancy nightgowns to me.

    • MaggieSays

      I dig it.

    • FancyPhilly

      I’m sure these pictures were taken within seconds of each other, but my takeaway from this is that her hands were glued to her hips in a horrible accident.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      Wow, does she look uncomfortable. Her smile is saying “MAKE IT STOP!”

    • ThaliaMenninger

      What is it with the Olsen ladies that they look whiny and spoilt even when they’re not saying anything?

    • CommentsByKatie

      I like this. It seems like the Olson twins are suddenly playing the game again, instead of hiding in voluminous rags. I actually love the sheerness of the dress. And I like the Wonder Woman pose, especially with the leotard visible underneath. I’m sure it’s not intentional but it’s kind of hilarious. I’m not a fan of strapless on anyone, and I don’t like the hair, but overall it’s a beautiful look.
