Emma Roberts in Katie Ermilio at the “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” New York Premiere

Posted on May 13, 2014

Clear the room, people. Emma Roberts is having a style relapse. We may need to do an intervention.

We so hoped she’d learned to stay away from shiny fabrics and colors that don’t suit her, but here she is, up to her old tricks. And now she’s added a new one: GIGANTIC shoes.

It’s just such a nothing of a dress. It’s practically generic. The only thing that could have made it work (aside from a bust that flattered her) was a bold color. Instead we get this lingerie-pink, which is exactly what she doesn’t need. Pale colors only tend to make her look dingy. Her own coloring is ashy-pale, which means her color choices should be saturated and eye-catching. We don’t know why she hasn’t learned this by now.

We can’t decide if those shoes are ugly or if we’re just reacting negatively to them because they’re so big and so wrong for the outfit. Kitten call on that one?

    This is like one of those dreams where I’m walking around town in my underwear, except it’s not me, it’s Emma Roberts.

    • ladybane

      You have dreams that Emma Roberts is walking around in your underwear. Tres weird, dude.

      • fiddlecub

        I think you know what I meant 🙂

        • ladybane

          Yes, but still… I think it would be cooler the other way 😉

  • Christine Hart

    Those shoes are cool, I’m not sure that they go with the dress…

    • GeoDiva

      Those shoes are gorgeous in person, but on her they are at least 2 sizes too big.

    • J. Preposterice

      I think those are shoes for dark skinny jeans. And only if both they & the jeans fit.

  • Carrie

    Boob seams. Why?!?!

    • barbarienne

      For stupid people who forget where the boobs go? “Get them between the lines, dear. You’ll be fine.”

      • Carrie

        Then maybe she should get boob arrows.

    • Fanny_Trollope

      Yes. Why? And satin. Why? Why is there satin? Why?

      • demidaemon

        I don’t think I can responsibly answer your questions, unfortunately.

      • myandyleigh

        And that horrible pale pink! Why? Why do the boobs sprout from the bottom of her ribcage? The whole thing needs to be hoiked up a good 3 inches, it looks the dress is heading south and making a break for it. And the hem is also inexplicable. It’s a bad, bad dress.

        I didn’t even know they made women’s shoes as big as those without some sort of special order.

    • Betsy

      Especially with such little boob-age. Those seams are SUCH overkill for her!! With a well-endowed woman, seaming helps to define the “ladies” so you don’t get the dreaded uni-boob. But . . .

      • Lower L

        I hate dresses with obvious “put boobs here” cups and/or seaming. They usually only cover as much real estate as Jackie O’s sunglasses, causing even moderately-endowed women to have fit problems.

    • misstressofsylar

      Snake eyes..cannot unsee!

      • Janice Bartels

        Yes! That dress is looking at me!

  • R.A.

    She is really beginning to resemble her Auntie.

  • NBG

    Oh, is it Clearance Sale Month at Forever 21 already?

  • lahallita

    Those shoes are hideous. Despite being all neutrals, the nude, black, and silver just don’t seem to go together. I don’t think they’d be flattering in a smaller size.

    • demidaemon

      Yep. It’s not the dress that their paired with. Emma and/or her team have managed to put together a look unified in only its hideousness.

  • shirab

    Oh my, no, to that bustline. It’s like those circles are placeholders, as if the designer said “When we get enough fabric to finish this dress properly, the boobs will go right about here.”

    • Kitten Mittons

      I HATE that type of bustline. They always accomplish the impossible task of drawing as much attention to your chest as possible, while simultaneously making it look as flat as possible. Because who doesn’t want that?

  • caroline

    And here I was thinking Katie Ermilio could do no wrong. I’d still choose her as my fashion designer were I First Lady, but poor Emma just makes it look so blah. The shoes are too big for me to imagine them looking good.

  • Dogue

    She’s been taking fashion clues from a Project Runway marathon – anything tends to start look good after some of that crapfest.

  • @Biting Panda

    Girl, what the fuck?

  • ktr33

    “dingy,” yes. Actually think the shoes are really fun, but it’s like she’s wearing mommy’s shoes and an old bridesmaid dress her older sister gave her to play dress-up.

    • makeityourself

      Oh yeah, those are gorgeous Jimmy Choos. The picture doesn’t do them justice. IRL the colors are beautiful together and they really flatter the foot. Not when they are two sizes too big, mind you, but when they, you know, fit.

      They also come in another colorway, in case anybody needs them.

  • SewingSiren

    I like the dress on her. But the shoes! Too BIG!

    • demidaemon

      *side-eye* Are you okay?

    • i actually like the dress too, but not on her. another problem is it must wrinkle if you just look at it. only way is to press it in the rest room (use the baby changing table!) and get your picture taken before you sit down in it. you must have a personal assistant for this move, though, ’cause an iron will never fit in your minaudiere.

  • Froggae

    The shoes are great, but that dress is so awful my eyes are insulted. The only thing that would redeem the designer is if she is secretly laughing her ass off about how she can trick stupid rich people into wearing the ugliest shit if she puts a high enough price tag on it.

    • poorellensmith

      Screw the Emperor. This is The Celebrity’s New Clothes.

  • j_am

    Why would anyone walk out the door with their boobs looking like that??

  • Belvane

    Is anyone else seeing bug-eyed aliens in that bodice? (Now you are, huh?)

  • As I told the pea green shoes that were two sizes two big for my feet at a thrift shop this weekend, “We’re attracted, but not meant to be.” Similar case – those shoes are gorgeous, but it looks like a little girl playing in her mother’s room, about to get caught (especially with that lingerie pink slip – busts like that aren’t meant to be a finished product).

  • ChiKat67

    Love those shoes…just picture them with a cigarette pant or classic LBD.

  • Lori

    I love the shoes—in the correct size and with the right outfit, neither of which is happening here. What is happening is that Emma’s boobs are wearing a sleep mask. Her outfit is such a total snooze it apparently put her girls to sleep. Not good.

  • BLauD

    Why, oh why, would anyone want to do that to their boobs??

  • Karen Belgrad

    They’re all gonna laugh at you…

  • another_laura

    I had such hopes that fashion would tire of the ‘nude’ / pale pale pink / shiny fabric / fried hair thing. And here it is, slapping me in the face. This look is dull and trashy. Go home and start over, girl.

    • marlie

      And that’s quite a feat… dull AND trashy.

  • Artesian_Belle

    Pretty sure it’s not even zipped up all the way either… Although that’s probably just the designer forgetting that women have backs wider than their waists.

    • kimmeister

      Good catch. What the heck? If Emma Roberts can’t even zip it up, who possibly can?

  • Julie Chase

    I love the shoes!

    That bustline. It’s just DEPRESSING.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Dresses with cups like this never look good on anyone. Add to it the pale color and it looks like a very long foundation garment. The model looks extremely disgruntled at being forced to wear it. Poor Emma didn’t know enough to be appalled at herself. The shoes are ugly and cheap looking.

    • Imasewsure

      Dita Von Teese… that is who this top was built for….

      • DaringMiss

        Dita Von Teese has a bigger bustline and that bodice would look ridiculous on her.

        Plus, she would just “Harrumph! Send that away…it offends me!”

        • demidaemon

          Exactly. It is supremely lacking in fabulosity for her.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Others have already said this, but I don’t even think Dita could rock this. She would need structured cups, which would change the profile of the bodice completely. These cups are like, drawn on. They look silly.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    For some reason, her tits remind me of an old school VW beetle.

    • demidaemon

      She’s driving her boobs!

  • Anna

    Pretty in Pink called, they want the lining for Andie Walsh’s dress back.

  • Danielle

    Sad boobs are sad.

  • mjude

    the shoes that do not fit drive me crazy. no excuse.

  • Supernumerary

    Meh. I’d be much more interested in seeing how Ellen Page did for the premiere.

  • Debra Mandich

    She has no bosom why is she wearing lingerie that flattens what she does have and then draws the eye to it? The shoes are way to big and not my flavor but I think the hate is for the size and for being matched with this dress

    • Imasewsure

      Yes it’s a weird and unflattering look… and kind of a no-brainer for those of us who are built that way.. Lots of styles work… but that ain’t one of them

  • Kbear

    That picture on the model is disturbing – ” I just woke up in my slip and don’t remember how I got here “. Is that the customer they are going for? Anywho – it looks like Emma’s undergarments – or a bad bridesmaid dress. OUT – on the granny shoes.

    • Beardslee

      The model creeps me out. Such dead eyes, she doesn’t look quite real.

      • demidaemon

        She probably isn’t. Or at least I hope so. Because I think almost all models would need to be paid an unreasonable amount of money to showcase this dress.

      • Lower L

        Add the prominent joints of her right elbow and hand (plus possible rib shadows under her left collarbone), and I’m concerned that she’s in an altered mental state due to severe dehydration and malnutrition. *Rails at fashion world for unreasonable demands for thinness*

        • leahpapa

          Uh, yeah…that photo is pretty darn triggering, if you ask me.

    • bridesmaid at a lingerie themed wedding in vegas, the morning after.

  • Mary Lauer

    It is hard to believe there exist cups out there that manage at the same time to look too small, and like one has no boobs at all.

  • The shoes would work, if they fit, but not with this dress. And what the hell is up with her hair?

  • MilaXX

    This dress in navy would have looked lovely on her. Those shoes are cute. A few other lady celebs (Kiernan perhaps?) have worn them. I think they are cute, but this is one of the worse cases of shoes too big I’ve seen in a long time. These look not just one size too big, but at least 2 or 3 sizes too big. The straps may be the only thing holding them on & they look HUGE! On a positive note, at least her face looks good.

  • Gatto Nero

    The shoes? I’m going with ugly. The clown size just makes it worse.
    Yes to everything else you wrote.

  • decormaven

    Bodice is variation on Kit-Cat clock eyes. Not an attractive look.

    • Imasewsure

      Somebody needs to make a Kit Kat clock dress now… Marc Jacobs? I’m calling you….

      • with the tail swinging back and forth between the legs. anyways…

  • This would make a killer Kristen Wiig Halloween costume though.

  • Zuber

    Now she has ruined the pair of shoes I have loved so much!!

  • kimmeister

    I hate how the shiny fabric is reflecting the blue background, and giving the effect that she has blue stripes on her backside.

    I think the shoes are just ugly, big or not. At least she has 3 different straps to keep them on her feet.

  • Janet B

    Fantastic shoes, for someone with long legs….maybe her aunt.

  • Judy_J

    Everything about this is awful. My advice is for her to go home and start all over with a new stylist.

  • uprightcitizen

    Pretty sure if I shaved my chest, that dress would look exactly the same on me (from the shoulders to the hips, anyway). That’s really not something that women should aspire to, btw. The way that the pink of the dress clashes with the flesh color of the shoes is high on the list of unfortunate things about this.

  • Imasewsure

    I’m going to say that the shoes could be disco-fabulous on the right ladystar (if used judiciously). Not working here.. man that dress is ugly

  • Mothra

    What is UP with those SHOES?! Did she borrow them from one of the gay uncles? Because those are seriously big shoes. If i were to write a little poem it would look like this: Awful color, awful fit. Big Shoes. No.

  • boweryboy

    The shoes are ugly.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Nice slip. Where is your dress? And why are your shoes 2 sizes too big?

  • Judih1

    The shoes are the only good thing here expect for they are way too big and do NOT appropriate for that dress. She is such a sad sack. As is that model who looks as if she passed out from starvation

  • Lilithcat

    I like the shoes, just not with that dress.

  • She needs to learn how to sew. This dress is a wreck!

  • MissusBee

    Terrible dress. I don’t see how that bustline could flatter anyone. And the wrinkles!

  • Lucinda Head

    Probably smells like the bottom of Allison Williams’s hamper.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    My teenage son has a Dead Maus poster in his room that reminds me of Emma’s boobs, lets hope she has some blister pads handy after wearing those ginormous shoes all night…

  • demidaemon

    Well, this is pretty much a hideous dress paired with hideous clonking shoes. Great job, Emma! Keep up the good work!

    Jesus, what is wrong with her?

  • ashtangajunkie

    The shoes are great. The shoes deserve better.

  • kmk05

    It looks like a foundation garment you’d wear under something else. An old school foundation garment before they had Spanx. All of it is horrifying down to the shoes. i just wonder in which universe her stylists woke up and said ‘YES! THAT SHINY BRA THINGIE! AND THOSE SHOES WHICH DON’T GO’.

    • demidaemon

      I am guessing drunk and/or high and on a ten minute deadline. Really, it is the only reasonable situation for this to happen in.

      • kmk05

        We’d hope so, because the alternative (‘why yes we spent three hours debating and this is THE outfit for you!’) is just too terrible to contemplate.

        • demidaemon

          But probably what really happened. I’m sad now.

  • KinoEye

    The shoes, to me, are hideous, but I’ve never been one for clunky shoes. Also, the HAIR. Badness of epic proportions.

  • painfully plain. and earrings? why bother? no one will see them beneath that hideous hair. it’s a real trend in hollywood these days, hideous hair. get it with these easy steps: 1. cut it in random assorted lengths with old dull pinking shears. be sure not to comb it out first. 2. soak for three hours in swimming pool chlorine. do not add water or shampoo. do not rinse. 3. after drying “naturally”, fry with an iron. not a curling iron, an actual iron. use the linen setting with no steam. 5. back comb the ends for a bit of volume, spray with powdered dry shampoo to eliminate shine and you’re good to go. you too can look like a starlet!

  • marlie

    All.. So… Boring… Zzzzzzzz…

  • FibonacciSequins

    The shoes look as cheap as the dress fabric. And why would anyone want to wear a dress with no other focus than emphasizing how flat-chested you are?

  • colorjunky

    I like the shoes, but why didn’t they give her a pair that would fit her?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I just can’t stop staring at those boob cups…must select next post, but it’s Lea Michelle and I’m scared.

    • alliekat9090

      As you should be, my friend. As you should be.

  • SugarSnap108

    There’s nothing more flattering than enormous feet and micro-boobs.

    • ladybane

      I sense a sarcasm.

  • GorgeousThings

    Super fug shoes. The superheros of fugly shoes.
    And that dress – take it out back and burn it.

  • frannyprof

    Cheap. i think the shoes look big because of the way they’re constructed. And they’re wrong for that outfit.

  • LeelaST

    Three, possibly four different leather treatments make for horrible shoes! Creased dress that looks like a long-line bra with a skirt, blah hair & makeup – could this be worse? Sidebar: Is that heroin-chic model look coming back or didn’t it ever leave? That woman looks one needle from the grave.

  • dalgirl

    Sleep mask boobs.

    • suzq

      I want to paint eyeballs on them!

      • ladybane

        Me too!

  • BrooklynBomber

    The model . . . I don’t know whether to laugh or call child protective services.

  • CanIbeFrank

    I made that dress for my daughter’s Barbie once. I had leftover fabric from a bridesmaid dress. True story.

  • leighanne

    Shoes are all of the above: ugly, too big, do not match the dress.

  • Is she in the movie or just being a supportive girlfriend?

  • I like the shoes.

  • SierraDelta

    Maybe if she had SPECTACULAR jewelry we’d all be so blinded that we’d miss the nothingness of everything else about Emma.

    • ktr33

      maybe the necklace her aunt is wearing in _her_ recent fail.

  • MarinaCat

    *sigh* I’m so over the non-descript dishwater blond hair. Embrace your natural brown and be eye-catching.

  • sk8tfan

    And to add injury to insult, the monstrosity (I dare not name it a “dress”) is all wrinkly! Was she cavorting in the limo in an unseemly manner?

  • saintebeuve

    I think the shoes would look great with black cigarette pants, maybe as part of a daytime outfit. And her make-up is subtle and pretty.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    where did she go??? where is she? thank god the background is blue or else >poof<. ick. C'mon, surely your aunt can get you some decent stylists? or knows some gays who know some gays?

  • snarkykitten

    Did something tragic happen to her dress, leaving her only with the liner?

  • LadyVimes

    The 90s are definitely back. Hold onto your fashion, darlings, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

  • MaryMcClelland

    She is SO gorgeous. With a wear anything figure – why, why, why can she simply not get it right?! It’s almost like these girls with the ‘clothes horse’ frames have more issues than the girls with curvy bodies because no one is telling them that is not the right shape/color/style for you and they just throw on anything they see. So sad!

  • She has lovely shoulders. She should look to Emma Watson for cut and Kate Middleton for color in terms of clothing.

  • Man Dala

    She looks like a Playboy bunny with small tits. Fail.

    • Man Dala

      And that fabric looks cheap as [email protected]

  • ladybane

    Two words: pastel garish.

  • quiltrx

    I think the shoes are an “almost”. Other than the fact they’re giant clodhoppers on her, that is. I hate the toe color, but it and the black strap are nicely shaped. I think the thing making my eye twitch is that the heel/ankle strap portion is so “blocky”…the rest of the shoe has kind of a sexy, ladylike shape, and that part just looks clunky.
    P.S. I thought we all agreed that your boobs should never look like the eye cover thing from the tanning bed. Did we forget to send designers the official BK memo on that?

  • unbornfawn

    That is one of the most unflattering busts on a dress ever. Get new gays.

  • Jacob Bowen

    That dress looks ITCHY!!! And the shoes would be cute NOT on her and on a woman with the correct size feet!

  • Therese Bohn

    It doesn’t matter how small one’s bust measurement is, those cups are just too small! Never liked the corset bodices. Wish it had straps or something, and better color or print.


  • malarson2

    Hair color, skin color, dress color. It’s all just a wash. A little contrast would really help her and she needs to start with that hair color. Imagine her with beautiful dark brown hair with that skin tone. Gorgeous. And the shoes? I think I may love them. Then I picture them on my size 11(.5 sometimes) feet and then they are just sad.

  • brown-eyed girl

    That dress is playboy bunny on the top and Barbie on the bottom.

  • ModernDowager

    And, oh dear, what on earth did that dress do to that poor model?

  • julnyes

    Those shoes are pretty cool, but not with that outfit.

  • EEKstl

    The shoes are actually gorgeous, but the fact that they are at least 2-3 sizes too large on her is distracting me so much that I can barely focus on the hiddy dress. Maybe that’s a good thing. She’s serving up WTF? realness.

  • Mr. J.

    Can someone explain why anyone cares what Emma Roberts is wearing? It baffles me.
