Lea Michele in Blumarine at the 2014 Fox Upfront Presentation

Posted on May 13, 2014

Lea Michele makes us wish press photographers also doubled as bitchy style commenters.

Because the only way she’ll ever stop dressing like this is if the photographers all put their cameras down, pursed their lips, gave her the tip-to-toe eye-scan and said firmly (and as one), “No. We’re not taking any pictures of THAT. Move along, girl.” Sure, it would be painful for her, but we think it needs to be done.

We can dream, can’t we? Wouldn’t the world be better if everyone was as judgmental as we are, kittens?

It’s a shame, because the color and the skirt are really great. The shape is terrible, though. The waist is way too high and the entire top half looks like it should still be on a dress form, held together by pins.

And is it us, or does her makeup make her look like she just woke up? From sleeping face down for 6 hours?

Cute shoes, though.

    • Miranda

      The shoes are adorable.

      • 3boysful

        Take them. I guess I’m alone, but to me they look cheap.

        • Bad Idea Jeans

          “Cheap” does seem to be the theme here…

        • Anna

          I feel like the prison tat’s on her feet are making the shoes look cheap.

    • SylviaFowler

      Why doesn’t she cut out the middle man and just show up topless? That’s obviously what she really wants to do.

      • demidaemon

        It would save everyone time and designers a lot of angst when they hear she has picked their dress.

        “Congratulations. Lea Michele is going to wear one of your dresses to that thing,” a naive assistant says.

        “Shit. She’s going to vamp it, isn’t she? No one is even going to remember the dress, you idiot,” the designer says.

      • FridaStaire

        Now that could actually be chic, with little black lacy shorts and fishnets and cancan shoes and maybe a top hat.

      • melisaurus

        Just a sports bra and shorts ala Miley.

    • Danielle

      LOOK AT MY BOOBS! LOOK AT THEM AND BE AMAZED, PLEBS!

      • MK03

        Everyone who saw Spring Awakening has already seen them anyway….

        • Kent Roby

          Yep, and this look makes me think of one of the numbers, “Totally Fucked”.

      • Kent Roby

        Well, in her defense she probably thought that “Upfront Presentation” was a request for her to show them; bless her heart.

      • stephbellard

        She really won’t accept the fact that “sex bomb” doesn’t work for her.

      • inchoate

        It appears that she deliberately pushed the top open to show off more of the goods. Look at the way the neckline rests in the runway pic — it’s much narrower on the model — and look at the way the fabric is pooling at Lea’s sides.

    • Carleenml

      omg…like it’s taking every ounce of will power for her NOT to bend over and stick her ass out in that 4th shot. She must practice poses with old playboy magazines or something.

      • Sarah

        She probably ordered her hooker necklace out of the back of a Playboy. Tack-eee.

        • sojourneryouth

          It’s bad enough on it’s own, but the Fredericks of Hollywood chest chain makes it look like she earns all her money in singles. I know this girl is talented, but her desperation-based behavior is uncomfortable to watch and makes me reeeeeally dislike her as a celebrity.

          • makeityourself

            It looks chip in a chip way.

            And could you please lay off the body bronzer?

        • littlemac8

          Sarah, I don’t understand that hooker necklace…does it attach to something? If so, what??? I’ serious!

          • Sarah

            Heh, no – at least I HOPE not. I just tend to think of those “y” shaped chains built to draw attention to the sternum/booby area (and parts lower down) are kinda trashy.

            • formerlyAnon

              “kinda”
              bwahahaha!
              I do love how your innate courtesy softens the blow…

    • Zuber

      Ofcourse!! I’ll never understand her desire of being desired and failing miserably!

    • mjude

      I don’t care for the dress at all, it looks like its unfinished. she is such a pretty girl with no gay uncles.

      • Trent

        But…the dress has potential, no? If the top were pinned together tastefully and the bottom didn’t look like she was about to show us all the good china?

        Oh, who am I kidding — it’s Lea. Of Course…

    • Janet B

      Are we sure this isn’t just pinned together?

      • Faerie Nuff

        This looks like one of those outfits they make on a mannequin in a fabric store without actually sewing anything.

    • amanda lynn

      My chest is *way* too big to be able to ever wear a shirt like this… so this is a serious question. Does one have to stand at a perfectly arched back to keep a shirt/top like this from opening up? I mean, boob tape can do so much, right?

      • MilaXX

        Boob tape and standing up straight.

      • FrigidDiva

        Thanks for asking, I’m in a similar boat chest wise.

      • Kent Roby

        I would think that avoiding such a dangerous mess of a top would be one’s best defense if similarly endowed.

    • TrixieConQueso

      This Green Garish Geisha must..Sashay Away.

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

      Maybe she’s trying to get cast in a Blake Lively biopic.

    • Rottenwood

      That’s a shame.

    • Garcia Loca

      The necklace is atrocious. Why would you want to look like an autopsy survivor?

    • hyperionic

      Soooo much sternum.

    • MilaXX

      I just don’t care anymore. It’s all just so “of course”. Whatever, Lea.

    • @Biting Panda

      IF this outfit showed some consideration for fit and class, I would be loving it. But seeing it is on Lea, that’s never gonna happen.

      • Constant Reader

        I agree. The colors are gorgeous on her, and the dress could have been something really great if it weren’t designed for maximum “of course.”

        • ktr33

          Or Maxim Magazine

          • demidaemon

            Has she been in that yet? I would think she would have been by now.

            • KateShouldBeWorking

              Didn’t she have that skeevy shoot with Cory Monteeth and Diana Agron? I, unfortunately, recall a lot of inner thigh and lollipop-sucking.

              And now I’m off to take a shower because eew.

            • demidaemon

              It sounds ver possible. I must have blocked it in my mind though, thankfully.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        OF COURSE

    • elirt

      There’s gotta be a bathroom around there somewhere.

    • hughman

      I didn’t know they had a Hooters in Tokyo.

      • kmk05

        Aaaaaah I may have just typed that! I’d like to think the Tokyo Hooters is classier, and this is the de facto uniform at a cheap and seedy knock-off bar in Nevada.

        • demidaemon

          They probably wear modified schoolgirl uniforms at the Tokyo Hooters, which is still classier than this.

          • kmk05

            It is scary how easily I can picture this, complete with the pigtails and stockings.

            It’s unfortunate that, in photos (vs the runway, where it looks more forgiving), this looks so much cheaper. The designer should have realised they were essentially creating a skimpy themed costume. Also, they should have realised they were creating drapes announcing the wearer’s nether regions.

            GAH. Of course she’d wear it.

            • demidaemon

              Yes, if Tokyo Hooters does not exist, than something approximately like it certainly does.

              And I think you described her thought process perfectly and more eloquently than the thoughts in her own brain. It probably went something like this: “BOOBS. CROTCH. SHINY. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!”

    • BayTampaBay

      I love that skirt but it needs to be longer….like almost to her knees.

      Tis a shame because she does look great in that color.

      • 3boysful

        The proportions on that garment are WAY off.

        • kimmeister

          I think that’s why TLo think the waist is too high, even though it’s pretty much where her anatomical waist is; it’s because there’s so much expanse of leg underneath the skirt.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Massage: $60.
      Happy Ending: $40 additional

      • Anna

        Had the exact same thought!

      • Karen Belgrad

        I was trying to come up with a clever kimono joke when I saw your comment. You win.

        • Kent Roby

          This is definitely a Kimo-NO.

      • Aerialgreen

        Not singing $100 additional :/

      • Cambel

        Aaaaannnnnnndddd…..you win the internet today.

    • kipper

      This is pure post Project Runway total meltdown made a dress in the last 15 min realness. Tim took the glue gun out of the designers hand in the hall right before the runway.

    • Mothra

      It looks like a super fancy waitress outfit.

    • Anna

      Lea, you look like you work at an erotic massage parlour. GO HOME AND RE-EVALUATE YOUR DECISIONS!!!

      • demidaemon

        A LOT!

    • Verascity

      I actually love the dress, but I’m sick of this look from her.

    • Vanessa Reyes

      If Hooters opened a Hibachi restaurant I think this would be perfect for their servers.

      • Kristin McNamara

        Though not in accordance with most restaurants’ health codes! Would you want to eat food served to you by someone wearing such an itty bitty skirt?!

    • another_laura

      Jeebus. We must all of us look away, kittens, or else she won’t stop.

    • uprightcitizen

      Any one of these photos could be the illustration under the definition “trying too hard.” Bless her heart.

    • deelup

      Just go home.

    • Fuchsiaforever

      Too much skin. Either show your thighs/legs or show your chest, but not both. The look is super tacky.

    • Jennifer Bober

      Am I a horrible person for thinking that she just has no class when it comes to her clothes?

      • Karen Belgrad

        I think, when Glee first took off, someone told her she had to sex it up for the red carpet to distance herself from Rachel Berry’s sweater sets. But nobody ever told her to stop.

        • NMMagpie

          She could use some of her Rachel Berry wardrobe for a change. A most welcome change.

        • Cambel

          Let me help everybody out here.

          Lea, Hi, we just wanted to tell you……Stop.

        • Jennifer Bober

          Talk about the pendulum swinging too far! Let’s face it, Rachel Berry is just short of puritanical, especially with the tops. She could have developed a perfectly classy sexy look. Look at her face though, she LOVES these looks.

      • alyce1213

        No.

      • SugarSnap108

        I think you’re an observant person.

    • Imasewsure

      Close up that top in some way that adds some shape and this would have been an amazing look for her (I’m ignoring the gyno skirt length of course)

    • NBG

      People, look at it this way. These are the pics we have to slog through in order to fully appreciate the Matt Bomers and Lupitas of the world. Really, Lea is just doing us a favor by being this clueless.

    • Lanus

      Hostess in a bad “Chinese” restaurant. (You know, the kind with some kind of horribly offensive logo of a man in a coolie hat and a name like “Big Wangs” or “Sum Gai’s” )

      • MK03

        And operates a “massage parlor” in the back.

      • 3boysful

        There used to be one in Dallas called The New Big Wong.

    • gayle

      I did not know people still wore body chains, are they a thing still? In some of the pictures, I don’t know if it was the makeup or her posing, she looked like a madam tussauds wax figure.

    • Fanny_Trollope

      Second to the last picture is really Catherine Zeta-Jones, right? Right?

      • marlie

        She’s looking a little like Selena Gomez to me.

        • demidaemon

          I can’t believe I did not see it until now.

    • Cambel

      This was a complete invasion of her privacy! They obviously took these pictures while she was walking from the Jacuzzi to her bedroom.

    • NeenaJ

      “Cute shoes, though.” Read in my mind’s voice as Anthony from SATC – thanks, Mario Cantone!

    • Imasewsure

      I like the idea of the concerned paparazzo doing us a huge favor (and Lea of course but mostly us). I’m guessing many a stylist and an occasional gal pal have tried and failed already

      • Glam Dixie

        It’s like that cousin I have that always has an orange face with a makeup line all the way around her jaw line and a completely different colored neck/body. You could say nothing to her to convince her that it looked bad. Everyone tried but she liked it so it stayed. Still that way to this day. That is how I imagine Lea and her clothing. Everyone tries to tell her to knock it off but she likes it and won’t be convinced that it’s a bad look for her.

        • Imasewsure

          Yup… on one hand, it’s nice to have faith in yourself and to go with what you really love… on the other hand…. we have this (and a few orange cousins)

    • JauntyJohn

      It’s like she’s a walking American Apparel campaign.

    • Judy_J

      I imagine that when she looks in the mirror, she is convinced she is the sexiest thing ever. Bless her heart.

    • Alyssa

      As if it weren’t tacky enough, being open almost to her belly button, she had to go and add that necklace. Not that the outfit would be acceptable without the necklace, but that just put the nail in the coffin. Total Of Course moment.

    • conniemd

      There is giving bitch face and then there are bitch faces that one wants to smack. The latter is how I feel about Lea Michelle.

      • ktr33

        But I’ve never seen her give bitch face on the RC. Looks post-cry.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I’m imagining this dress with a knee-length skirt and a bit (ie. A LOT) less sternum and I think I would really love it like that. Not that Lea Michele would ever wear a knee-length dress without most of her torso showing, but on someone who would, I would love that.

    • boweryboy

      Where’s the rest of her dress?

    • Glam Dixie

      Ignoring the 2/3 of an actual dress she is wearing, to wonder if girl has been crying. Her face looks puffy and her neck appears to be missing. Bad photos, bad dress, bad angles? Whichever, it’s all bad.

      • GorgeousThings

        Maybe she’s crying over the fact that her latest movie (an animated Wizard of Oz) flopped at the box office. That’s no excuse for wearing two satin napkins and a satin sarong, though.

        • demidaemon

          Yeah, I didn’t even see a full promo for that one while watching RPDR online and I knew it was going to be HORRID.

        • Carleenml

          Satin Napkins and Sarongs sounds like an old Doris Day hit.

        • BluesD

          IMDB says it’s been in theaters for 4 days. Can we really call it a flop then?

          • GorgeousThings

            Just going off the returns in Monday’s Wall Street Journal. They said it took in 3.7M, and it’s being pegged by many as the first flop of the season:

            “This weekend’s other new movies, “Mom’s Night Out” from Sony’s TriStar Pictures and “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return” from Clarius Entertainment, premiered with low openings. “Mom’s Night Out,” a family-friendly comedy hoping to appeal to faith-based audiences, took in $4.2 million. “Legends of Oz,” an animated musical featuring Lea Michele as Dorothy of yellow-brick-road fame, collected $3.7 million.”

            • BluesD

              Ouch. Just saw that it cost $70 million to make, too.

      • Gatto Nero

        She just caught sight of herself in a mirror.

        • Glam Dixie

          I always get the impression that she thinks she looks fantastic. She’s never one of those that looks like she hates what she’s wearing and feels awkward in it. She’s always, look at me! Don’t my tits, legs and sternum look amazing?!

      • ktr33

        Same thought here. Puffy sad post-crying face. Not the usual Ms Lea starlet smile she gives out so consistently. Something’s up.

        • Glam Dixie

          I heard she was on some show talking about Cory’s birthday being a couple of days ago so maybe it’s that. ETA: Correction, she tweeted a picture of the two of them together on Sunday because it was his birthday.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Yes, that is a very Upfront Presentation. Of course.

    • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

      Nice lotion on her legs, tho. Gives them a nice shine.

    • Gatto Nero

      Either waist-deep cleavage OR micro-mini.
      Choose.

      • Carleenml

        just wait, you’ll be giving her that same advice 25 years from now.

    • Skwirrel76

      I’ve watched enough nature documentaries to know presenting when I see it. I can practically hear Morgan Freeman in my head narrating the complexities and significance of her posturing as she vogues down the red carpet.

      • Kayceed

        I would pay to watch that show.

      • Alloy Jane

        This needs to happen. It would be the greatest parody in the history of PBS. Everyone Wants to Be Me or Do Me: The Documentary.

    • nycfan

      The color is really fantastic, too bad there is so little of it, so poorly draped. Skirt is gorgeous, though I guess I am a hopeless prude as I would like it better a few inches longer.

    • ChiKat67

      I have to believe her sartorial choices are the result of more than one casting director telling that she wasn’t right for a part because she didn’t read “sexy” so she’s constantly trying to prove that she is. Put that same outfit on RiRi and it goes from desperate for attention to commanding attention cuz RiRi KNOWS she owns her look.

    • Rae

      It looks like ‘sexy’ nightwear.

    • Lilithcat

      Well, that dress is certainly shiny!

    • warontara

      I must confess: I have worn several cut down to the navel minidresses in recent years….when I went to Vegas to party. THAT is where these looks of Lea’s would work. I’m not anti sexing it up, but she needs to learn about appropriate venues…and change it up sometimes.

    • CanIbeFrank

      Is it because she portrayed an uptight high-school girl that she feels the need to go way overboard in the (supposedly) sexy look to show she’s not her character? Lea, we know.

    • Wink

      Dear Lea,

      You are pretty and talented, and a lot of people like you. However, you will NEVER get everyone to like you, so please stop trying so hard. No celebrity, with the possible of exception of Hugh Jackman, is universally adored. Take it from someone who knows.

      Cheers!

    • TM

      I have a complete irrational hatred for that style of top with that style of necklace. Only JLo (early aughts) is allowed to/should do that.

      (But I do like the color and the print…in theory.)

    • FibonacciSequins

      The shoulder/sleeve situation flatters her figure. The rest of it…I don’t think the skirt waist is higher on her than the model, I think the problem is the dress doesn’t work on her because she’s short-waisted. That skirt overly reminds me of a waitress’s apron.

      The one time I’d like to see an illusion panel…

      Waitress at an ‘Asian’ Hooters. I mean, if you’re going for a satin fabric in emerald with a floral print, the worst you could do is attempt Halloween Geisha, complete with the sternum necklace.

    • demidaemon

      An OF COURSE, of course. The only news here is that she is wearing a stupid “I’m so SEEEEEEEEEXAY!” dress that she couldn’t even wear correctly. So dumb.

    • KinoEye

      The fabric and color are gorgeous. But it does look totally unfinished. And I am so, so tired of seeing as much skin as she can show without getting thrown in jail for indecent exposure. Let’s get creative, Lea. Enough of this nonsense.

      • kimmeister

        Such a waste of such beautiful fabrics, sigh.

    • marlie

      OMFG, someone, please make it stop.

      who stole the rest of your dress, swiper the fox? i would love this dress if it had a skirt and a button or three.

      • formerlyAnon

          you can tell i’ve been watching too much dora the explorer with my toddler granddaughter.

    • BLauD

      It makes me sad to see her posts. I feel like she must just not have any good friends who will take her aside and slap her in love. Can someone please let her know it’s ok to stop now??

    • DTLAFamilies

      The belly-length necklace gives it an extra layer of sleaze.

      • Kitten Mittons

        The icing on the skank, if you will.

    • smh4748

      I don’t totally hate this, although I might be letting my adoration of the color get in the way of totally objective analysis. That’s definitely way too much chest/boob/stomach (see, I really shouldn’t be listing three different body parts in that sort of list), but if it was a little less showgirl on the neckline, I wouldn’t mind it.

      I’m guessing she’s not smiling in most of these because she’s contemplating the very serious issues she’s going to have sitting down in this thing. The skirt alone would be challenging, but combined with the tucked-in shawl posing as a top? Good luck, Lea.

      • smh4748

        Oooo, I just saw the necklace situation. Ye gods. That’s airport strip club jewelry.

      Such a beautiful color, such a terribly unflattering design. Also needs a better shoe.

    • LeelaST

      She looks like a cocktail waitress at a faux Oriental bar. As much as I hate necklines that plunge to the waist and dresses that look like tops, it actually looks pretty great on the model. Lea, as usual, is giving us the hard sell.

      She really has no idea how desperate and pathetic these outfits make her look, does she.

    • EEKstl

      Of course!

    • YoungSally

    • BrooklynBomber

      I think the waist is actually at her waist but looks too high because the top takes up more vertical real estate than the skirt. That almost never looks good (nor does open to the waist, come to think of it). Too bad, because it’s pretty, and could be knockout look with a bit of tweaking.

    • Dandesun

      Why does she always dress like she’s the third chick in a porn flick? The one who comes in on the action and joins in?

      And why does it look like that top and skirt don’t actually go together?

    • jonnyf8

      It’s a new low.

    • Fred Vaughn

      My first thought was “Why you dressed so slutty?”…

    • Cassidy Olsen

      Look’s like Betty Draper’s red embroidered dress she kept from her modeling days in season 1 or 2. So not great.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      All I could think was…’looks like her hair smells’ (agreeing with the just woke up line of thought…). the whole thing…. bleh.

    • snarkykitten

      Did she…put concealer on her tits? There’s a weird lack of definition/sternum

    • Mrs. O

      I feel bad. I just don’t like this young woman. She always seems to look a little cheap. It’s as if some important taste-gene is missing. I look at her and think how perilously close to a Kardashian she comes.

    • Cee Layton

      Additionally, the bitch league needs to smirk at the peepee stance that’s prevalent among carpet posers. Right heel to left arch ladies.

    • LadyVimes

      One day she will switch wardrobes with Angie Jolie. Pigs will fly, hell will freeze over, and Miss Lea will be in a shapeless black dress.

    • Sunraya

      She can’t be as tall as the model, so why is the dress shorter on her? Or it looks it, at least.

    • Tee

      The way she’s standing makes her look like she has to tinkle.

    • alliekat9090

      Look we can all analyze this ’til next Tuesday but the plain fact is that it’s a cheap looking ugly dress. And I wont even dignify the jewelry with a comment.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      That dress is FMO, though maybe Zoe Saldana or Rosie Huntington-Whitely could make it work. Lea is an attractive woman, but these sexy-sexy getups make her look like a junior high girl who just sprouted boobs and raided Mom’s closet in hopes that everyone would notice. Reminds me of the girls where I teach coming to class in backless dresses and rompers that squeak through the dress code thanks to flesh-colored bandeaus over their bras. When you try that hard it just ends up funny.

    • Alloy Jane

      Oh look, Lea Michelle in a low cut bathrobe. I keep expecting her to open it.

    • quiltrx

      You know her ‘people’ are just messing with her at this point. I’m sure they told her the next Bond film was going to be soft-core and set in Hong Kong, and this event was a Bond Girl audition.

    • Man Dala

      She continues with the mob wife / Real Housewife of New Jersey look. No.

    • ktr33

      Oh no, now I feel sorry for her. Cute, sad tweet on Cory Monteith’s birthday.

    • unbornfawn

      I just want to smack her. She needs someone to tell her not to go out of the house dressed like that. That much skin just doesn’t work for her. She is not a sex kitten.

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      This girl seems to have some issues; such a strong need to look sexy. She ‘s so pretty and has the potential to look smashing. Who’s her wretched stylist anyway?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Of course. Thankfully the biscuit is covered, though the breasts are still available. She seems stuck on the idea that sexy is showing as much skin as possible.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      That skirt fabric is so pretty. It’s a pity they only had a swatch of it.

      • Eric Stott

        That’s about enough fabric to make two throw pillows.

        • ktr33

          two throw pillows for Barbie’s dream house

          • Eric Stott

            more like granny’s apartment.

    • BluesD

      She’s terrible at posing. This is half a step up from bathroom mirror ducklip selfies.

    • Kingfashionista18

      The dress is too ugly. The fabric selection are terrible, I wouldn’t even consider getting this to a homeless GIRL..

    • malarson2

      I’m sincerely starting to worry about her. Something’s not right behind those eyes…

    • kerryev

      The length of the necklace took this past ‘of course’ into ‘ugh.’

      • Laura Abrahamsen

        I had to scroll back up because I did not originally see the necklace. Once I hunted for it, I felt a little dirty. Ick.

    • livesarah

      Such beautiful fabric wasted on such a terrible dress…

    • Joey Melliza

      Of Course!

    • P M

      There’s a waist on this thing masquerading as a dress? I couldn’t tell.

    • P M

      I wish she’d had the imagination to turn it into a pin-up look, seeing as she’s 2/3rd the way there in this look anyway.

    • lilazander

      Bovine as always.

    • MarissaLG

      This is what Teresa Giudice looks like in her dreams.

    • titaness25

      It sort of reminds me of a short, satin version of J-Lo’s Come To Jesus dress.

    • altalinda

      This outfit announces I’m out of mourning and on the prowl. O masters of Be Me or Do Me — too soon?

    • Shug

      Plunging neckline or micro mini skirt: Pick one (1).

    • Eric Stott

      This looks like someone gave a 10 year old girl some expensive fabric remnants.

    • bluefish

      A jewelry roll dress. After the party, Lea can throw her various bijoux onto it, roll it up, and be on her way. To another glamour-locale, Skipper — and Stacie too.

      • ktr33

        perfect!

    • sherrietee

      The color is amazing. That’s my saying something nice. I think what really drags this down to Slutsville, USA is the pendant that hangs to her waist, that just screams “oh my goodness, stare at my skin … do you see a bra? No! I’m not wearing one! I’m SOOOOO naughty!” Meh.

    • cocohall

      So Lea is at the FOX up fronts for Glee. And she wants everyone to know that she is emphatically NOT A TEENAGER in real life. So of course, she has no option but to put on something that might only be appropriate for her annual gyno exam. She is too young to need a mammogram, but boy, she looks ready to go, does she not? On the plus side, she appears to have regained a little bit of the weight she lost after Cory Monteith died and she looks healthier. I’m working hard here to find the positives.

    • ktr33

      This is really the ultimate train wreck I can’t look away from. I am kind of obsessed.

    • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

      Every time I see her I have the same thought: she needs a new outfit and a ton of therapy.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      There should be a name for the uber do-me look. She looks kinda desperate.

    • Justine

      “This has almost no fabric! It will make me look so tall!” – Lea Michele

    • http://amyabramsdesigns.com Amy Abrams

      Is it just me or does that hem make you twitchy too? I now it’s a weird thing for me to zero in on with the whole outfit being twitch-inducing but the hem just makes the skirt look thick and unflattering when the fabric should be fluid.

    • formerlyAnon

      Lord god almighty. The skirt could be pretty. The “bodice,” term used loosely, combines with hair, jewelry, skirt length and shoes to make her look like she’s got two weeks to land a sugar daddy or they’ll lose the family farm and her mother and infirm grandparents will be begging in the snow.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      this looks like something from the carol burnett school of design: she pulled the shower curtain off the rod and threw it over her shoulders and then wrapped the bathmat around her waist, et voila! c’est design de neaux.

    • save_the_hobbit

      She tries so hard to show off her boobs…has anyone ever informed her she doesn’t really have any to show off?
