Met Gala 2014 IN or OUT: Katie Holmes in Marchesa

Posted on May 06, 2014

One half of T Lo spent THE ENTIRE DAY in jury selection process, darlings! Civic duty and all that shit! This means two things:

1) We’re scrambling like crazy to get you as much Met Gala goodness today as you (and we) can handle.
2) The RuPaul’s Drag Race recap will be going up quite late today.

It also means one more thing:

3) We’re turning the judging of this one over to you.

Our thoughts, in rapid succession: that’s a gorgeous gown; that’s a really tough color and we’re not sure she can handle it; that’s some atrocious hair.

There. That should be all you need to get you up and running darlings. Opine.

Bitter Kittens make the call:


IN! She’s a modern Cinderella, bitches!

OUT! Cinderella? Pfft.  Princess Ripe Banana’s more like it. 




To our great surprise, the kittens rallied to defend Keira Knightley’s “Tinkerbell on a diet” dress, but while the vote was close, it ultimately came down to OUT.

    Hmmm… it’s falling off the model, so I guess it’s supposed to look like that. I’d give it a qualified ‘In’ mostly for making her look like Belle who has always been my favourite Disney Princess. I’m with you on the hair, though.

    • Anna

      She sort of looks like a Southern Bell who’s just been chased off the plantation by a group of savage Yankees.

      • txngyrrl

        THIS comment made me bust out laughing at my office desk!

        • Vee

          I concur!

      • Introspective

        miss havisham in gone with the wind.

        im not here for it. and her diy face and hair. all the way the fuck out.

        • FayeMac

          she could be a stand-in for Marigold Sterling

      • mellorcr

        I was gonna say a hooker who got beat up and her dress half-ripped-off by a drug lord… but neither scenario explains her smug yet slightly crazed grin.

      • Chuck Barthelme

        And frankly, I don’t give a damn. :)

      • tereliz

        “You can murder my family, ravage my body, but with all that’s decent and holy, don’t destroy my plantation!”

    • MK03

      Belle does the walk of shame.

      • VicD

        Yeah, drunken Belle on the morning after. OUT

        • ovarB

          Drunken Belle after Cinco de Mayo celebrations OUT!!

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Belle after having waaaay too good a time with Lumiere.

      • slnelson98

        Out, totally agree with you! 😉

      • Julie Tilton

        Hilarious. Also voting out.

      • Lisa_Co

        I agree as well. And that color doesn’t work on her. OUT.

      • GeoDiva

        Perfect description……OUT

    • jenuwefa

      Post-Beast ravaging Belle, I’d say.

  • Martin Leon

    I’m going for “in” because I do like the color, hair, and I think she looks pretty good. Even if at first I was like “woman, that dress is about to fall off you”.

  • Clydette Wantland

    Ehh, I don’t care for it and would someone please, for the love of God buy that girl a hair brush?!?!

  • Noah

    It’s on theme, risky, and not a total disaster, so I’m giving it a “barely in”.

  • Michelle Amanda Cantave

    I’m going to go with a grudging in only because I’ve created a story in my head that Suri wanted to see her mom dressed like her favorite Disney princess, Belle.

    • Mrs. C

      You should check out Suri’s Burn Book entry for today.

    • Dany

      I agree. She looks “Gone with the wind fabulous!” as the resident shit stirrer in the Real Housewives of ATL would say

      • texashistorian

        Oh my gosh it IS the curtain dress!!! Just this time, the portieres are in yellow.

    • 3boysful

      Ok, I see that, but in *MY* story, either (1) she’s stoned (smug, goofily coy smiles), which is why she doesn’t care about her hair; or (2) she just had a great limo romp with someone and is verrrry pleased with herself.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Ah, the Naomi Watts quickie smirk!

  • Mazenderan

    Nope. She’s swamped by that dress, and it makes her look preggers in that bottom pic.

  • Gatto Nero

    Out, head to toe.

    • Paigealicious

      She looks like Sally Field in the far shots and she’s way too young for that!!!

      • The Gifted Collector

        I saw Sally on Jimmy Kimmel last night and it does look like Katie is wearing Sally’s messy wig.

        • Nappysue

          Does Sally really wear a wig? I’m so disappointed. I thought she had great hair for her age!

      • ktr33


    • Anplica Fiore

      Agreed. It looks like she hasn’t learned how to stand up straight and I’ve seen her with great posture. OUT. And an extra OUT for the hair.

  • PlethoraofBooks

    It’s a terrible color for her. But I like the gown. Um…. Out.

    • Carly Clement

      mmm right dress wrong girl….

      • Lizzyisi

        A thousand times this. *She* looks terrible–bad color for her, dreadful hairstyling, and a gorgeous capital-R Romantic gown which works against her deer-in-the-headlights charm. Out!

        • Carly Clement

          The next question is who should have worn this dress instead… I wonder… and feel free to yell at me for this, but I wonder if this would be a better choice for Lupita

          • Nathan

            Honestly, I think the color would be great on Lupita, but I think it might be too much fabric for her.

          • Carly Clement

            i tend to agree, it would be too kuch fabric but the colour would be amazing!!!

  • MilaXX

    OUT. She’s not selling it and the hair is a mess.

  • Sam Smith

    Out, Katie’s looks always look unfinished to me, and at the Met that cannot be.

  • madge

    i actually love this look on her — she looks a little disheveled and grand. diggin it. IN.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    She’s Belle from Beauty and the Beast!! The dress is pretty, the hair is definitely Frankensteinish.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I think the atrocious hair in all it’s big messiness, balances out the big poofy dress. So I’m going with in.

  • Grumpy Girl

    Out: her hair looks dreadful, and she’s not standing up straight to sell this to me.

  • steveac10

    Having seen it on the model – this would have worked with an updo and a killer pair of garnet or citrine (or both) statement earrings.

    • zenobar

      Exactly – a slightly messy updo. Tendrils and all that. And some insanely baroque earrings. (Earbobs?)

  • dulcian

    OUT. Saloon hooker Barbie with beach hair.

  • altalinda

    This is close, but I don’t think she has the assertiveness needed to pull it off. Also, please stand up straight and put your shoulders back, missy. Narrow out.

  • JLou

    Out. It looks like the dress was drenched in French’s mustard, dried, and then a few spots of Heinz ketchup were added as an accent.

    • Kitten Mittons

      That is exactly what I thought, and I need a snack, now.


      • myandyleigh

        I’m with you both. OUT!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      That is such a difficult color for anyone, and throwing the ketchup on was ill-advised.

  • Trent

    OUT. The dress is a wrinkled Scarlett O’ Hara mess and the hair is completely wrong for this event. And Katie, stand up straight! (Yes, I’ve turned into my mother.)

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Comb your hair! Stand up straight! You’re not leaving the house like that!

  • latina fey

    OUT. hair and makeup are criminal. ditto on the “stand up straight” comments. for crying out loud…

  • Charlotte

    Less modern Cinderella and more dimestore Belle.

  • Aurora Leigh

    Out. The dress looks like a fungus that’s falling off of her.

  • altalinda

    P.S., if you’d been in my jury pool, Uncle, I’d have to strike you for sure since it would be too distracting — I’d constantly be wanting to lean over the bar to discuss the latest celebrity excesses instead of convincing you that the other side had broken its contract.

    • Alicia

      Can you imagine? “The jury has reached the decision that the accused is GUILTY of wearing terrible shoes”.

  • theblondette

    Out!! If she’s Belle, she’s a Belle who had a tumble in the haystack with Beast before the gala, that’s for sure. Urk.

  • muzan-e

    Love that colour. Want that colour .. for maybe a half-dozen summer-ready loose shirts and tank tops. It is amazing on very pale neutral-leaning-yellow complexions, and possibly it’s blinding me to the horror that is her hair, because I want to shout from the hilltops: “By Jove, she’s IN!”

    Disheveled works for me, with a dress so flamboyantly Disney.
    I want to know the name of every piece of cosmetics she’s wearing. Oh, those perfect eyes…

  • TheLaurenJean

    I’m officially considering opening my own course on red carpet posing. We will cover such foreign concepts as Standing up Straight, Chin Up and Tits Out, and Putting in Effort. Katie Holmes and Lena Dunham can get their first class free.

    • Sal

      I may need to take this class too!

  • semirose

    OUT. Sorry Katie, the role of Belle in a liveaction Beauty and Beast isn’t going to you. Belle would never with that hair.
    I do actually love the colour and the bronze details but the top is just way too much and it just looks wrinkled and sloppy.

  • Garcia Loca

    OUT. I actually quite like this aesthetic for Katie — this rustic sultriness suits her looks. But this is wrong for the theme and I’m a sucker for sticking to the theme if the host has taken the trouble of selecting one.

  • Janet B

    I want to love it, but the color on her (and her hair) makes it tough.


  • Carleenml

    Out Disney Belle.

  • lunchcoma

    OUT! How is this even a question? She looks like she went to a ball the night before, had far too much champagne, and woke up to a wrinkly mess, bedhead, and no prince on his way with a glass slipper.

    • Denise Alden

      Agreed! OUT.

  • Anna

    This whole look is so awful that I have no other words for it.

  • DominoEstella

    Droopy, Drippy Egg Yolk.

  • FibonacciSequins

    OUT due to poor dress choice. Why would anyone want to wear a dress that looks unbalanced and misshapen? The hair style echoes the crumpling at the top of the dress. Some kind of simple chignon would have been better. I think the neutral makeup palette was a mistake, too. I do like the color and fabric but it’s not enough for a save.

  • Gus Casals

    O U T
    It looks crumpled instead of distressed, the bustline is a nightmare and girl, get that hair done!

  • Carla_Charlton

    Geez. Out for sure. Did she style her hair to look like the top of the dress?? The whole thing just looks messy.

  • Tanya Wade

    Exploding marigold. OUT.

  • Michelle O’Brien

    In! I love it!!

  • KT

    Are you guys kidding??? They serve crack at jury duty now? OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Danielle

    OUT. Princess Belle is the only woman who can pull this off.

  • Kate4queen

    Out-purely because of her hair. I actually quite like the dress.

  • Daisy Walker

    OUT times infinity!

  • EveEve

    so OUT. Karolina Kurkova shut. it. down. in her Marchesa. Even Kylie Minogue , who you can see in profile in the fifth photo, looked good in her Marchesa. This? Really?

  • jonnyf8

    If only she’d had that dress for her wedding to Tom Cruise! I like the whole hot mess and judging by what we’ve seen today maybe that’s really what the Met Gala has become — a competition to see who can be the biggest hot mess.
    Oh and I love her hair. She looks completely crazy!

  • Charm City

    hate the gown, really hate it on her. OUT.

  • MinAgain

    Pull back your damn shoulders. **pulls shoulders back** Huh. Didn’t help. The dress still looks like the pile of paper towels that someone used to clean up a broken jar of French’s mustard.

    • Carol Kent

      And they cut their finger on the broken glass…

      Massive ‘out’ here. Droopy, droopy, sad, and droopy.

  • R.A.

    Beauty and the Beast look. She’s the Beauty, the dress, hair and makeup are the Beast.

  • Qdahling

    OUT unless she wanted to look like a disheveled Belle whose dress is peeling away from her

  • hughman

    “You can not fool us with your limp disguise, Colonel Mustard. It was you. In the drawing room. With the crimping iron.”

  • BarniClaw

    Ooh, and easy one! OUT!

  • shopgirl716

    Agree with every word you said.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Sweet Jeebus on a breadstick, there is not a single thing of value here.

  • Lilithcat

    Waistline down, fabulous. But I loathe that the bust looks as though she’s going to have a wardrobe malfunction any second. If that were a fitted bodice, I’d be 100% in favor.

    The hair sucks. It boggles my mind that women would put on a gorgeous gown (or one they consider gorgeous, or are being paid huge sums of money to wear), yet allow their hair to look as if they’ve just been tumbled. Combs, dearies! And look at the model! Updo and killer earrings. That’s what this dress demands.

  • Angel Ratliff

    I want to like it, but I also want to yell at her to stand up straight. Mostly “in,” with a side of “shoulders back, tits out, chin up.”

  • boweryboy

    OUT. It’s a sloppy, droopy, hot wrinkled mess (why, Marchesa, why do you think this is ok?). Pretty color on her but from a distance it looks like Suri gave Katie a hug with chocolate covered fingers.

  • Laura Renee

    OUT. Why is she slouching?

    • Miss wks

      To keep the goods from spilling out…..

  • Laura Robinson

    She looks like Belle after she was trying to escape the Beast’s clutches. How apropos.

  • AutumnInNY

    Out. One good sneeze and it looks like the top would fall. The dress looks a little Renaissance Fair/Disney Princess to me and I’m not sure that’s her color.

  • B_C_J

    If she had only put her hair up, this would probably be amazing. As it is, she looks disheveled & it kills the look. OUT

  • Reneesance

    That color reminds me (sorry) of baby diarrhea and the bodice fabric is like a bustle on her boobs…a Boobstle? Sorry Katie I have to give this an out.

  • nannypoo

    Oh, come on Uncles, did you think we would think twice about this? It sucks! This is the first time I have considered the possibility that Tom Cruise may not be the crazy one.

  • CB

    Out. I don’t hate the dress, but I think it would have been a million times better with sleeker styling to balance it out.

  • Susan Carson

    Great Dress. However, it is not her color ( it is a very difficult color to wear for most folks), she has way too much makeup on to try to make it work. hair not so much either. Where was Ms. Yang her stylist / friend? This is the perfect example of borrowing a runway gown that is a great piece but should have been in a different color for the lovely Ms Holmes.

  • Miss wks

    “Beulah, peel me a grape…”

  • Nicole S.


  • txngyrrl

    That front bodice looks like it’s a good 4-6 inches away from her decolletage. I’m afraid that if a paparazzi camera got a shot from above, we’d see all the goods, whether or not we wanted to. I think she’s slumping because she’s trying to maintain her sense of decorum and not flash everyone.

  • RKCPhD

    Tragic, from top to bottom

  • Sara__B

    OUT! Hair, makeup, and posture combine to make her look crazy and drunken, and I’m sure she’s neither.

  • Kimberlini

    OUT. If anything, all that bronzer and fake tan just made the color look worse.

  • Injustice

    Eh, yawn. Next?

  • TwiddlyStun

    Outy out out. Just barely out-er than her boobs, and that’s still quite out. I declared it when I saw it on Twitter and I’m repeating it now. The girl knows how to stand up straight, so her slouch combined with the bodice shape makes it look like the damn thing is trying desparately to escape from her hair… whaddya call it? “Hair STYLE” doesn’t seem quite right. Anyway, it’s trying to reach escape velocity. The color might work in something sleeker but this dress definitely doesn’t work on her as a whole.

  • Kbear

    Looks like her souffle fell.

    • Tom and Lorenzo

      Oh, that’s good. Well done.

    • rainwood1

      A cheddar cheese souffle at that.

  • Guest

    OUT. “Belle gets caught in the walk of shame” is not an appropriate look for the Met Gala.

  • Judy_S

    I actually like the whole thing except for the color, which is all I can see, unfortunately. If it had been dimmed just a bit, I’d happily give her a pass, but I have to say out.

  • Pound of Salt

    The dress looks atrocious in the angle of the first shot, can’t see past it!

  • Julia

    She needs to work it. She does not look happy to be wearing it, at all. I don’t know if she’s afraid it will fall down if she moves her arms? I think this could be great on her if she looked like she liked it more.

  • Frank_821

    Barely an out. The bustline is too much for her. If needed to be toned down a little bit. He looks like the weight of the bust is too much for her

    and her hair is too damn lazy

  • NinjaCate

    Out. No other commentary necessary.

  • kipper

    Now remember Miss Katie : When you are over at 12 Oaks for the Wilkes BBQ, you eat like a bird. …….

    • kipper

      I dont think it is a horrible dress , she is just to small/slight to pull it off ….

  • Aidan B

    Nope, nope nope nope. While I like the color on her a LOT, I hate the overall shape of this thing. That bodice looks good on absolutely no one. Also, that is not Met Gala hair.

  • andi56

    Oh, lordy. This is so many kinds of wrong, starting with her hair, the terrible make-up, the lack of Touche Eclat under the eyes, and her freaking posture! For G-d’s sake, stand up straight! But the interesting thing I noticed after watching”The Good Wife” the other night is how much KH looks like a young Stockard Channing.
    I’m with Kipper. She’d better not go to the Wilkes’ barbecue and gobble like a hog! (Mammy’s words exactly.)

  • crash1212

    IN. I wish those shoulder thingies were a skosh higher on her arms and maybe that she’d one a little more with her hair, but all in all, I think she looks pretty and that’s a beautiful gown. I usually hate that color, but not this time.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    One of Scarlet O’Hara’s sisters wearing a different set of curtains after a three day bender.

  • majorbedhead

    Oooh, no. Agree with the French’s mustard/ketchup mishap comment.


  • Robin Murray

    Here’s why I’m giving it an IN: She looks happy. She usually looks miserable in pics, and in each of these she has a warm glow and a little bit of a smirk, as if she’s sharing a joke. Or she got laid in the limo, I don’t know. I normally loathe Marchessa, but this is remarkably toned down for them. I want to not like it, but (to me) she is selling the dress.

  • LeelaST

    Out. If it were pressed and the sleeves poofed it might nudge toward an “in” but the entire effect as is – Katie included – is blah.

  • anotherkate

    She looks a right mess. OUT for the hair alone, but the weirdness of the bust and the crinkliness-that-looks-like-wrinkliness is just adding to the dishevelled look. (Although re: hair, I think that would be a fantastic daytime casual ‘do. Love the loose curls but not at a damn white tie gala!)

  • artgirl9

    Yuck. Looks like frosting melting off of her. THAT’S what you choose to wear to this event???

  • Denise Rambo

    It looks like it’s falling off her … never a good look.

  • conniemd

    IN – surprisingly. It appears to be a Marchesa dress without too many design elements. While the over the boobage ruffle is a bit much, it keeps the dress from sinking into prom dress territory.

  • Miss Ruth

    Someone left Miss Kate out in the rain.

  • Mrs. C

    I want to give this an IN just because she looks happy and rested…but I can’t.

  • Alloy Jane

    That dress looks like it vomited out Katie Holmes.

  • elirt

    OUT. The dress is an odd, unflattering shape that looks like it’s sloughing off of her.

  • Julie Chase

    Out. God DAMN.

  • jenrsmall

    OUT! So wrinkly, such a sad shade of mustard. Please don’t sneeze Katie or your dress may run for the hills. Or run off the hills. Or whatever. Don’t get me started with the hair.

  • GKaller

    gorgeous dress but she can’t handle it. she looks like shes slouching and to full this off she would need to look way more confident. dress alone: IN, dress on her, styled like this: OUT

  • Crystal

    Frumpy instead of regal. Out.

  • Toni

    Queen of the Harvest Festival. That’s one fancy cornhusk dress.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Some chldren of the corn couture, methinks.

  • Cheryl

    Out, because the colour is making me hate it, not liking the wrinkles either. Feeling bad about the hair, because it looks very much like my hair.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    avast ye knaves! prepare for boarding!

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    I…sort of love it? She looks like a rebellious runaway debutante. IN.

  • greymain

    so OUT! Hair is a MESS, as usual, smirk still doesn’t work for me…the dress is a wrinkled hot mess.

  • Linderella

    I think it’s lovely, and she’s got the coloring to pull it off. But then…the hair. Just that one detail makes it an Out. So…Out by a hair, I guess.

  • MarTeaNi

    Well. Belle finally got away from the Beast. All that running is hard on the couture.

  • DesertDweller79

    Hair is awful. But, the dress is pretty awesome for the Met Gala. So, I’ll say IN

  • KCF

    Out. I’m afraid if she makes any sudden moves, she’ll fall out of that thing. Don’t love the color on her and the hair is completely wrong.

  • Sarah

    OUT. Nonono to that hair, which makes her look like a lusty wench on the cover of a bodice-ripper. And no to the dress, for the same reason.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I half-expected the current version of Fabio to be sweeping Katie off her feet.

  • Nexli B

    Out. I can’t get past her atrocious head (hair and makeup are all screaming “Just got shagged in the limo”) and the odd gossip-inducing shape this gives her mid-section in side shots. It’s just not working for me at all.

  • Vivi N

    Simply an OUT.

  • Betsy

    Like many others, I see JBF Belle.

  • Meri

    With better hair, I’d let her have this one, but as it is, OUT.

  • Jacob Bowen

    IN? That’s as convincing as I can get. The hair is almost bad enough to push it towards an OUT but I actually LOVE the color and think there are some interesting moments with the dress.

    • marlie

      That was the way I felt about it too. The dress has grown on me since I saw it last night, but the styling kills it.

  • quiltrx

    OUT. If you’re going to go for Belle (my fave Disney princess too…our first dog as a couple was named for her), you have to do the hair too. Not bed head.

  • mitch45

    I was thinking more Belle than Cinderella. Either way, out.

  • lundibleu

    I’d vote OUT. I know it’s falling off the model too, but if it fitted a bit better round the bust it would look better. And the hair – too scruffy for such a gown.

  • IngerMereteH

    Bridesmaid’s walk of shame Sunday morning, complete with hair which has been rubbing furiously against the groom’s father’s pillow. OUT.

    • butterflysunita

      So risqué! You’ve made this look a whole lot more interesting.

  • AMurray

    Looking at this makes me feel unhealthy … cat urine …. nothing good to say about it

  • ChelseaNH

    The dress is wearing her. Out.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    It’s making me sad.

  • amanda siegelson

    when i saw this on the new york time’s rundown, i immediately fell in love with all of it, hair, dress, everything. definite IN!

  • ashtangajunkie

    Big, droopy OUT. Are all Hollywood hair stylists on strike or something?

  • dash1211

    Oh, honey. Stand up straight. Find a hair clip. Stop simpering. You look ridiculous. Out.

  • VFinn

    OUT!!!!!! Ugh. I loathe everything about this look.

  • bouionice

    OUT! Why can’t she comb her hair instead of looking like she’s got granny’s old mink stole on her head. I suppose they were going fro “romantic” but ended up just messy. Neater hair would balance out all of the movement in that dress.

  • numenah

    Imagine this gown on Jessica Chastain…Katie, this is not your dress or makeup.

  • Carrie

    OUT. I don’t think there are too many colors out there that would have been less flattering and it looks like a wrinkled mess.

  • Call me Bee

    I actually love this color on her, but that is way too much gown for her. She must feel like a kid playing dress-up, hence the day-off hairdo. This dress demands a much more sophisticated ladystar to handle it. OUT

  • kfizz

    Nope. Out.

  • marlie

    I hated this dress at first, but it’s starting to grow on me. I think it’s an interesting interpretation of the gala’s theme. It’s sort of a deconstructed version of the big, opulent ballgown that James is best known for.

    But from the neck up, Katie ruins this. For this look to have worked, her hair and makeup needed to be sleek and polished, and they are far from that. Messy hair and muddy makeup are NOT what this dress needed. So… sorry, Katie, but this is OUT from me.

  • GillianHolroyd

    The wench is stark mad or wonderful forward.

  • Crystal

    This looks dumb.

  • Bethany Roullett

    OUT. Unless the theme was “The next morning”

  • Anne

    I think if she had put a modicum of effort (or, you know, if her stylists had) into her face and hair, this would at least be an “attagirl.”

  • mdcoon127

    out doesn’t flatter in color or shape

  • 2ranma75

    This is absolutely hideous. I can’t se what she was going for honestly. Look at that ! She looks like one of those women in the pirates of the Caribbean movies. Ugh ! Awful

  • ballerinawithagun


  • JauntyJohn

    There is a palpable “This broad gives Zero F*cks. ZERO.” vibe going on here which makes the whole thing look kind of chic to me. The hair, the eye makeup, the gown… this is the woman I want to run into at the Gala’s bar.

  • SewingSiren

    Beauty and the Beast after a roll in the hay.

  • Belvane

    In. But hair up and fabulous earrings would improve it.

  • Dandesun

    She looks like a paper doll with the dress on all akimbo.

    I know she’s known for her lop-sided smile but I’ve never been a fan and to wear something that ostentatious with an expression ‘I know… right?’ like she’s in on a joke she’s worked very very very hard to craft… it’s all an OUT to me.

  • msdamselfly


  • jkatkins

    Head to toe horrific. Why does she look so sad and defeated all the time? OUT.

  • Mel

    It looks like a bad toenail fungus.

  • Richard Harper

    No. No, no, no.

  • BlairBear

    This looks like the beauty in the beat gown if Belle was stabbed in it. Looks cheap, poorly made, wrinkled, and sad. If you hadn’t guessed at this point out

  • texashistorian

    Out! Lemon Pledge Princess with Cruise-Controlled Hair. Hey, I try.

  • Vera

    The gown is gorgeous on the model. Katie looks like she slept in it.

  • tallgirl1204

    There’s something “Gone with the Wind” about it, but it’s… tattered. As if Scarlet O’Hara had decided to go with the leftover Mother’s Day gift wrap instead of curtains. Also, her hair isn’t helping. A sleek bun might have elevated this.

  • Rachael Fraser

    out, the back is kind of pretty but the front makes her look chunky and like she has bad posture. overall not a good look.

  • lizajane1776

    Again, good posture would have made this work. Shoulders back, tits out!
    And she’s out, too, like this. But it was close.

  • Adina Miller Holmes

    Out. That baby poop yellow is not the color for her, and she looks like my laundry when I’ve left it in the dryer to avoid folding.

  • Malia C.

    I want to like it but I feel like it’s an “after” shot of someone making a very hungover walk home, down to the spit-up down the front of the dress. OUT.

  • frannyprof

    Out. My daughter has a Disney Princess Color-Change Belle doll, where the dress changes from yellow to red when dipped in icy water, and that dress is much prettier than this mess.

  • NJBK

    This one’s easy – OUT
    That color is just too much for her and the hair-ugh!

  • decormaven

    Not selling it, and the hair is beyond bad. Out.

  • AndieJay

    I just hope she doesn’t have to eat soup while she’s wearing that.

  • halleygee

    I can’t see past Winnie the Pooh yellow, I don’t see this looking good on anyone.

  • butterflysunita

    So OUT. Worse than Lupita’s because Lupita is somehow managing to look beautiful and fabulous in her ridiculous dress, while Katie Holmes just looks sad. Like a wilted tulip.

  • dashwoodstole

    Out. Ugly dress, terrible hair and make up. Nothing to like.

  • Eovaai

    OUT. It looks like it’s falling off her and the hair is unforgivable.

  • jw_ny

    OUT…she is not pulling it off, it’s falling off. That hair….oh please…

  • rkdgal

    Horrible. The bustling is incredibly unflattering, and the hot dog condiments color scheme is not working for me. A wrinkled, rumpled, bunchy mess. OOOOUUUUUT.

    • AnneElliot

      YES. Mustard yellow, with splashes of ketchup. Awful.

  • amanda lynn

    Beauty and the Beast….

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I think the tousled hair kinda works with the deconstructed, romantic vibe of the gown. I wish it was partially pulled back or something, though. That gown is a tough color but she looks neither ruddy nor sallow. I’ve argued myself into an IN.

  • Sunraya

    Out. Truly tragic.

  • teensmom99

    Jury selection must be crazy in Philly because . . . OUT OUT OUT.

  • Buffy

    Out. She should give this dress to…. anyone else?

  • SophieCollier

    I thought it was great in the thumbnail preview, but that strange beading just isn’t working like it should. Also, she’s drowning in her dress, and that’s never a good look. Gonna say OUT for Katie, but maybe someone else could make this work.

  • Jeremy Thomas Porta

    She’s serving us a tale as old as time realness.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    In when she is standing up relatively straight. Out she is slouching. Crimanitly, Katie, you aren’t married to Tom Cruise any more — you can wear heels and stand up straight and everything now.

  • Deb

    Out – she looks like she wandered off the cover of an old school romance novel.

  • MzzPants

    Add Harvey Coreman and a curtain rod shoulder, and she’d be all set. OUT.

  • Pumps

    Is she allergic to a brush or comb? Does Obamacare cover this condition? I don’t understand.

  • BLauD

    That is not her dress. It is really perfect for the event, but it belongs on somebody else. Somebody who owns a hairbrush.

    • Dagney

      Meow! love it.

    • AnneElliot

      That is NOBODY”S dress.

  • Sharon

    Out! I hate to say it – the embroidery looks like dried blood from being stabbed.

  • Miss_Led

    Out. Barmaid in “Tom Jones.”

  • Lisalady161

    Out. She can’t make this work.

  • LaSylphide

    Out. Not her dress.

  • Dagney

    Well, in. but the hair! It’s beach hair! This dress needs HAIR, like no fuckin around, aqua net super hold, get me a bobby pin right now, HAIR.

  • kimmeister

    OUT because I can’t tell if she’s sticking her stomach out, or if the dress is designed to be weirdly voluminous in the abdomen.

  • wontons

    Terrible color on her (and on the gown). Terrible posture. Calculatedly messy hair–not a good look with the rest of this or for this occasion. Out out out.

  • Deya

    It’s a IN….if Katie Holmes were Helena Bonham Carter…

  • Heather Johnson

    out – hideous

  • Scimommy

    Out. Blergh.

  • trisker

    IN. I think she looks kind of “modern” with her hair like that on that OTT antebellum gown. Gutsy.

  • JP

    OUT. It’s a crumpled mess. Had it been more tailored and her hair was less dragged-through-shrubbery-backwards, maybe, but as it stands, no.

  • Lorena T. Gardner

    OUT! Gorgeous gown but terrible fit and it has wrinkles! And don’t even get me started in that hair! And why did she ditch accessories?!

  • strangebride

    OUT OUT OUT. She looks like she rolled out of bed and grabbed one of her ugly step-sisters dresses. Also, can she PLEASE stop slouching?

  • RedRaven617


  • AnneElliot

    OUT. So very, very, OUT!!!

    I would say it was the ugliest dress of the night . . . but I just read your Met Gala Rundown part I, and I already gave that dishonor to Kristin Stewart and Shailene Woodley. This is definitely in the bottom 3, however. It’s a hideous color, her hair is awful, and the dress is just — well, fugly. Even if were in another color, I’d still hate it.

  • kingderella

    IN. This gown is crazy gorgeous. Even on Katie Holmes.

  • Emily Roach

    SO OUT! I’m surprised you’re even polling us, uncles.

  • Tigerfly

    I wonder if she’s wearing her stank boots under it? Also, OUT for that hair and the horrid posture. If you’re going to wear a dress like that, you should stand up straight and own it.

  • Violina23

    She looks like a Disney Princess paper doll. Out!

  • Elizabeth Phillips

    Out. The hair is awful. The color doesn’t suit her. The dress is gorgeous, but it does nothing for her.

  • Bonnie Blue

    I vote Out, Princess Ripe Banana. Do not care for it.

  • Nathan

    I mostly love this dress, but I can’t stand the mustard yellow. It should have been a softer, brighter yellow/gold to really get the Belle vibe. I’m going to say just barely, lower-case in.

  • Coco Cornejo

    OUT! Adding layers and layers of folded fabric at the chest do not a flattering bust line make.

  • Liz

    Oh no, it looks like she hasn’t pulled it up all the way. She looks pleased with herself but this is a no.

  • Trickytrisha

    Out. That bodice looks like one someone went a little overboard with crepe paper. Also there’s something about her makeup lately that really bugs me. It’s so…brown?

  • Punkinsmom69

    Huge out, but in her defense, I don’t like the dress at all. The hair is pathetic, but the sideways smirk is totally channeling Drew Barrymore for me.

  • ampg

    OUT. It’s a great dress, but it’s not her dress.

  • LadyVimes

    Cinderella?! Pfffft. Belle more like. Iconic golden ball gown? Come now.

    I love that she went for it, but that bust isn’t flattering on anyone. Beautiful on a mannequin though, I’m sure. It looks like a piece of art.

  • barbarienne


    The color is very, very wrong on her.

    Whoever did her hair and makeup made her look like a 50-year-old who’s been chain-smoking cigarettes since she was a teenager.

  • Lori

    OUT. Given my general dislike of Marchesa’s overwrought tendencies I’m surprised by how much I like the weirdness of this gown, although I agree with Lady Vimes that it’s Belle, not Cinderella. The problem is that it’s not right for Katie. For one thing, it requires perfect posture or it looks like it’s falling off by accident instead of draped in an artsy/crazy way on purpose. That forward shrug thing Katie is doing with her shoulders is creating some real problems. Also, that hair is bad.

  • snarkykitten

    More like Princess Roll in Ze Hay. Out!

  • ktr33

    OUT: bed head, next-day eye make-up, whipped cream puff dress made of paper mache and mustard. I don’t understand how this is even in question. One good has come of this: I am now sure that I hate Marchesa.

  • rainwood1

    OUT. It looks like she still needs to zip it up. And that color is unfortunate as is the hair.

  • andreawey

    I actually like the color on her, but everything else…..OUT!

  • OffToSeeHim

    If she’s pregnant, in. That’s better than I could have done when I was pregnant. If not, it gets an out, as should any dress that makes me wonder if you’re pregnant when you’re not.

  • ktr33

    I think maybe only possibly Charlize could work this thing, with the short hair, and the imposing regal stance and stare.

  • what not

    OUT. Her schlumpy posture can’t carry it off, and she looks like she’s wearing age makeup.

  • Jecca2244

    i think it was tuned by the hair.

  • Jangle57

    Dear god NO – OUT

  • housefulofboys

    Seriously? So out. Also, I would be so annoyed if I couldn’t move my arms for an entire evening. I think her hair and face actually look very pretty, and I like the over the shoulder look, but still. No.

  • Reality TV Casting

    out but not for the color, for the hair and her posing which is slouchy when this dress (as proven by the model) has some tricky low fit and needs someone with killer posture and lovely shoulders. katie OUT

  • Persiaa

    Out, but mostly for the execrable hair and her slouching.

    • holla

      I second that

  • MitchellGilburne

    She may look a bit like Sally Field, but I dig it.

  • Haley Buchanan

    NO. Droopy boobs, lazy hair, sleepy make up. Out, out, out.

  • msjin

    OUT! She looks like a hot mess and disheveled. The dress looks sloppy and doesn’t look like it fits her properly.


    On the plus side she looks like she’s having more fun than she’s had in years!

  • sleepycat

    I like it, but she needs to do something with the hair. IN


    So IN because it’s the cosball and she’s havinf fun.

  • dulcinea86

    I feel like style bloggers should be able to cite “day after the Met Gala” as a reason to be exempted from jury duty.

  • beebee10

    OUT sad to say

  • flamingoNW

    Hmm. I’m going to go with a barely IN.

  • Pterodactyl111

    She’s like a weird Belle. In.

  • NurseEllen

    OUT. I don’t care for the gown, the color, the sprinkling of autumn berries across the bodice, the precarious way it’s hung on her frame; don’t like her hair, her makeup, or her smirk. Yucks all around.

  • Anathema_Device

    Out. That is a horrible color on her. I don’t really like the dress all that much. I might like it better on someone with more presence. Her hair and makeup don’t work for me at all.

  • Kelly

    This is SO out. Messy hair, slouchy posture, and sleeves (or whatever they are) that make her look perpetually as if she’s in the midst of taking her dress off. Belle looked much better.

  • Yvette Florio Lane

    the outest

  • Jessi03

    Looks like the Beast left Belle out in the rain and her dress melted. Poor thing.

  • Gaby

    She really is a bougie girl, that Belle. (Sorry, all I got for this is a Todrick Hall reference.)

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Dreadful, just dreadful. So that’s an OUT!

  • hillmad

    It looks like she fell in a vat of French’s yellow mustard while wearing Miss Ellen’s portieres.

  • livesarah

    Yellow Miss Havisham. It might pass with better hair, which seems a too-literal reflection of the gown. Out.

  • katiessh

    OUT. is that a joke, she looks a mess.

  • jif

    Out. She looks like she’s auditioning for a particularly cheerful interpretation of Mrs. Rochester.

  • mila_8

    I didn’t get it till I saw it on the model. Beautiful dress, but wowza… I actually thought it was Drew Barrymore, fresh out of the maternity ward.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Oh, my, my, Miss Claribelle, I swan you were out in the boathouse past midnight again with that dreadful Captain Rake and now your hair is like to a hurricane and your dress is like to just fall off because you’ve done it up backwards and really not done it up at all. Oh, my, my. Darlin’, you are O-U-T.

  • FridaStaire

    Is that a serious question? She looks ridiculous! Out!

  • susan6

    OUT. Everything about this is wrong. She looks like she just woke up and wrapped herself in a horse blanket and walked there in a hurricane.

  • Joey Melliza

    she badly needs a steamer intervension!

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I’m kind of with IN here, given the venue and the theme (which I had to look up). I’d like to see her stand up and do something awesome with her hair, but I can get behind the Belle-at-the-castle-ness of it all.

  • israel8491

    Melting birthday cake. OUT.

  • travelingcat

    Out – not her color or shape plus bad hair.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    nope nope nope. idea is nice, execution is abysmal

  • Slanted & Enchanted

    I…like it? And I also like the hair. Not sure why, but there it is. IN.

  • Judih1

    Princess Ripe Banana with fuzz on top

  • bailey

    IN. ravishing & NOT back or white

  • Levedi

    Frida Kahlo could have pulled this off because she had enough presence. Katie Holmes doesn’t look like she’s wearing the dress, so much as bashfully following it into the room.

  • Mia Moreno

    Out. Little Bo Peep on crack.

  • Imasewsure

    It’s not working enough for me to vote in but it’s also not so terrible that it is out… Ugly bodice, wrong wrong hair and too much dress for her but I applaud the effort…Plus the waist line looks like bacon bits so I am going to have to say IN (I love bacon)

  • Fuchsiaforever

    OUT. Too Halloweeny!

  • uneasyjd

    OUT. Way, way, way out. Perhaps a Personal Worst.

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. Bad hair. Not her color, the dress is eating her alive. A very tough dress to wear and she’s not pulling it off.

  • pepita

    The dress maybe nice, but with such a bold color and her coloring I would not have chosen that makeup. I am no expert and I only do 40’s inspired makeup on me anyway, but I think a cleaner face and an actual hairdo would’ve worked better. As is, it is a big OUT from me.

  • MannahattaMamma

    OUT: she looks like Belle from Beauty and the Beast — after a swift tumble in the back of the Beast’s car. A hot mess, that’s what.

    • LambeeBaby

      That was my exact reaction followed by “antebellum zombie”

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      There is one thing that might redeem this look for me, and that would be a hologram of Jean Marais as Le Bete from “La Belle et Le Bete” by Jean Cocteau.

  • Alicia

    IN – it’s embiggening and I don’t particularly like the colour on her but I love the JBF in a gown look on her. She deserves a cheeky orgasm or two.

  • DollyMadisonWI

    OUT. I think it’s her posture that’s killing the bodice.

  • lilazander

    Definitely IN. I think she looks gorgeous.

    • BayTampaBay


  • Vicky

    She looks like a depressed muffin.

  • greenwich_matron

    She looks like an eight year old playing dress up

  • MissusBee

    It’s a Lupita color. You need a fashion doctorate and some serious radiance to work ‘egg yolk’ and not look ill.

    Also the dishevelledness of the dress calls for groomed hair otherwise it is Belle: The Tequila Years.

    • Amel

      Yes, it’s definitely a Drunk Belle costume. I’m not totally against this color for her, but because of that hair it’s going to be an OUT.

  • sienna elm

    I love it!

  • DeniseSchipani

    I hate the dress and she looks awkward in it. OUT.

  • Alyssa

    Out. This color, while beautiful, does not look very good on her. The dress called for an updo, not the mess she’s sporting. I get wanting to go all Disney princess, but I think she should have chosen a different inspiration other than Belle.

  • StarburstLady

    I like it! I like the way it looks like a withering flower, and her hair kind of goes with that. So it’s a costume-y thing, but then this is the Met Ball. So IN.

  • CT14


    Hair and makeup are atrocious. She’s rarely looked worse.

  • carnush

    OUT. It’s the color, and the, um, embellishment.

  • Alyssa_T_Robot

    i effing hate this dress. the color is PUTRID and it doesn’t flatter her figure! who wants that?! also the crumpling of the silk or whatever. no. no. nope.

  • Danielle West


  • Mrs. Pelto-Magilto

    I have no good excuse for this, other than identifying with Belle when I was 7, but IN. So in. I love everything about this, despite it being a mustard mess.

  • MoHub

    I can only hope there were goody bags, and each contained a comb and brush.

  • MissFern

    If she had better hair then maybe? But as it stands, no way Jose.

  • Frostypup


  • Mary Lauer

    Out. Horrible color, and she wants to make the dress do all the work. Does she spend so much time combing Suri’s hair so she can’t be bothered to do her own?!

  • Candigirl1968

    Was she on her way to a Once Upon a Time in Wonderland tryout and needed to pop by the Ball?

  • wisdomy

    Scarlett, is that you?

    • Vtg Fashion Library

      I thought the exact same thing.

  • Mothra

    Out. She’s no Belle.

  • MarissaLG

    OUT. It looks like it’s falling right off her, the color looks gross against her skin, and her hair is a hot mess.

  • queeniethebold

    Out. Outoutoutoutoutoutout. She looks Penny Dreadful.

  • mjude


  • Bernadette

    Out! Awful color and she can’t seem to pull off the volume.

  • Victoria Anzalone

    Have to disagree completely on this one. Lovely hair, atrocious gown.

  • merciblahblah

    Out out out. The first time I saw it from the thumbnail, I literally thought – it looks like someone smeared feces on that dress. Or blood. In either case, GROSS.

  • MaryAlice Finley Davis

    Out. My mother would have been screaming “Stand up straight, girl! Stop slumping those shoulders”.

  • Pepper Collins

    Looks like Belle actually did escape the beast! I’m somewhat surprised there aren’t twigs in her hair!

  • Sophia Finfer

    out out out out out. I can’t believe Suri let her leave the house like that. She looks like Belle, but after being caught in a storm. HATE.

  • Andrea Lentz

    i dont like the top, even if it’s meants to look like that she looks hunched over and scared it gonna fall off. thumbs down

  • kategs

    It should have worked, it’s a gorgeous gown but it didn’t. out.

  • jackie

    Gone with the Wind

  • GhostOfMisterPamuk

    Y’all are nuts. This is a complete, unmitigated mess.When you look like Belle on a walk of shame home after a torrid night with the beast, it should not even up for debate.

  • JenniferA

    Out, out, a thousand times out. She looks like a rumpled mess from the hair on down.

  • amaranth16

    Haha, easy one, uncles. OUT. It looks like Belle got dragged behind a horse.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Come ON. You’re joking, right? This look is every inch an OUT.

  • elemspbee

    OUT. She has bad posture and this disney princess dress in mustard gown does not a fashion make. That vomiting bosom is a mess.

  • mickiemonkey

    “I just ROLLED out of bed and wrapped the comforter around me and I’m NEKKED under here” face.

  • MaggieMae

    She needed to glam it up with the hair and jewelry. And, if she wants to wear that color, she needs to change herself into a gorgeous dark skinned black woman. OUT

  • Sunshine16

    I don’t care about any of the back story, that shit is a mess. Wipe that smirk off your face, pull up your hair & chin up/shoulders back/tits out! OUT!

  • Sara Leigh Merrey

    Either it’s falling off, and not in an attractive way, or it’s swallowing her up, again not in an attractive way. Bad hair, bad dress. Out.

  • lalahartma

    Ugh, no. I like the color and fabric, but that “neckline” is just wrong.

  • suzq

    From head to toe….off on the model, off on Katie. It should be in a pile on the floor. She can’t even stand up straight in it, for fear it will simply end up in that pile on the floor where is should be. Not even Lupita could salvage this wrinkled monstrosity. It’s a shame someone had to spend all that time beading it.

  • alyce1213

    I had to think about this one for awhile. Came back to say IN to the dress, OUT to Katie. Much to my surprise, this is a Marchesa I don’t hate. It’s really extreme and it’s Decadent, which appeals to me. The color is problematic — it’s not ugly on its own, it just doesn’t work on a lot of women. I’d prefer it in a deep jewel color. Her presentation of the dress is all wrong — hair, makeup, posture, coy posing. She should have been more formally coiffed and made up, or better — let someone else wear it.

  • LJCdoc

    Out. Brush your hair. Get a dress that fits. And that color doesn’t work, either.

  • stagmania

    This is the most clear cut OUT I’ve seen in awhile.

  • Melanie

    Frumpy, dowdy, horrible color. Not even the model can work it. Just hideous.

  • melanie0866

    OUT. She looks like Belle ran away and spent the night in the woods before waking up and coming to the ball.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    Did she eat an easter egg in a hot car on the way over? OUT

  • PeggyOC

    You even have to ask? Hideous. Out, out, out.

  • judybrowni

    OUT: Princess Bruised Banana, at that.

  • formerlyAnon

    Dear god. SO on the fence. Different opinions from different angles.

    In? (with irritating teen girl upward inflection)

  • Shawn EH

    Out! Not even the model can figure that mess out! But at least she has the wherewithal to look grumpy about it trying!

  • Columbinia

    I can’t judge this dress on Katie Holmes until she gets her messy hair out of her face and off her shoulders. Who is responsible for this hair? The dress is “messy” in a beautiful way. But to show it off well the other elements have to be sleek. Also, too much brown tint in all the makeup. This could work, but the styling errors make it hard to tell.

  • Verascity

    Hideous. OUT in every way. Only a goddess like Tilda could make this work.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    (Said in high dudgeon) Miss Scarlett! You put those curtains down this minute! Do you hear? Your mother would never want to you to leave the windows naked like that!

  • Louise Bryan

    1) She needs to get the hair out of her face. 2) I don’t think that color suits her especially well. 3) It’s an impressive antebellum kinda thing going on. Ergo, 2 con and 1 pro, so OUT.

  • KTI4000

    What’s going on with the waist? It’s making my eyes think “hiding baby belly” except I’m sure not. And how can a dress make a person standing up straight look like they’re slouching? The only thing missing is some raccoon eyeliner and a sullen scowl. Something bad is happening here. Out!

  • cheekypinky

    Give it to Lupita.


  • L.O.V.E.

    Belle from Beauty and The Beast just did a “Bitch Stole My Look” segment for Fashion Police on this one.

  • demidaemon

    Well, here are my thoughts in random order:

    1) Hideous color.
    2) Hideous texture on the gown.
    3) One good yank and it will fall off, revealing all for the world to see.
    4) Awful hair.

    For those reasons, OUT.

  • somebody blonde

    Out. What a terrible color.

  • Zeee

    This hurts my eyes. My rods and cones are not OK with this dress. Nope.

  • Kaytee

    Out, the Fug Girls called it right with the “drunken extra from Kiss Me Kate” look – the dress looks wrinkled and the hair is a mess. It is a color not found in nature that very few can wear and she is in the can’t wear category.

  • Tuneful54

    They are doing wonderful things with medications and talk therapy these days. Gurl, take some time off and get yourself (including your hair) together–you aren’t doing yourself any favors on the circuit right now.

  • brown-eyed girl

    What is that on the front of the dress? Insects? What?

  • BrooklynBomber

    Well, if you want to look like you just took a tumble (yes, that kind of tumble in the hayloft, then this works. Otherwise, OUT.

  • Clash D

    I love that she looks like a dopey drunk, shit-eating grin and all.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    It’s like she’s hunching down to keep her boobs in the boob compartment.

  • Mousentrude

    Hideous colour, looks like it’s falling off, horrid hair. Out.

  • Sara McDarby

    Out!!! That dress is way ugly!!!! the color is hideous, the weird wrinkles look awful and it’s got a really unpleasant shape to the bodice. So very out!

  • NBG

    OUT. And she is morphing into a way less talented Stockard Channing before our eyes.

  • VicksieDo

    Late to the party, but gotta say: That is the most hideous look I’ve seen in years, and that’s saying something. AWFUL.

    First saw it & was so excited to see such a bold color choice, especially from Marchesa, which I always associate with pastel princess gowns. I think she could have rocked it, but the messy hair makes her makeup look sweaty & consumptive, rather than glowing. A side note, your term ‘consumptive’ is the perfect description of the current makeup trend – pink/red eye shadow looks bad on 99.9% of the population, even in Hollywood. And it’s everywhere, plus the makeup companies are carrying a lot of the same. If you don’t look consumptive, all that pink around the eyes lends itself to a stoner look, not exactly work ready.

    Scrambling’s a good word. Hair is wonderful.
