This isn’t the worst thing we’ve seen on her, but having seen her several times now on the red carpet, we’re ready to make a diagnosis: she doesn’t understand how shapes work on her body. She tends to favor very stiff or boxy garments, with hemlines too long for her and waists that sit too high on her. She’d be much better off in more relaxed clothing, with some swing and drape to it. A more laid-back, textural, California kind of style would suit her much better than the NYC fashionista one she’s been trying to make work for her. Or a soft butch Lauren Hutton style. We’ll take either over this.

This isn’t the worst thing we’ve seen her in , but we hate that hemline, the waist is too high and the neckline doesn’t flatter her. Plus the white slingbacks read bridal no matter what you pair them with.

    On the plus, the print is eye catching?

    But yeah, she has no idea how to dress her body. Either that or her stylist doesn’t and she needs a new one!

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      I like the print too. I would change the neckline to something not so low cut and get rid of the sheer material on the bottom. Enough with the sheer fabric already!

      Not liking the slingbacks, but the earrings are divine.

  • Rhonda Shore

    Overall, the complete look, including the styling, is not flattering. A butch Lauren Hutton look sounds great — SOMEONE should sport that!

  • Julie Chase

    I would like this if the sheer was gone, it was slightly shorter, and the bust was more flattering.

    So…an almost entirely different dress.

  • Jennifer Bober

    The way the waist is bunching up in the back is driving me nuts. That’s just poor fitting. It’s shouldn’t be happening either, because it’s not too tight in the hips. T and Lo are so right. She really doesn’t get how shapes work on her.

    Oh, and half sheer skirts need to die NOW!

  • Jordyn

    Am I insane, or is she blonde Katy Perry…?

    • what not

      To me, she’s buttoned-up Kaley Cuoco.

    • Pablo Ulloa

      something between Katy Perry and Amber Valletta

    • Hysterectomypants

      I was honestly just scrolling down to see if anyone else had mentioned this. Blonde Katy Perry is ALL I CAN SEE.

  • Lori

    Also, I hate her lipstick and her hair.

    I’d like the dress on someone else if it didn’t have that sheer crap. The print is really fun.

  • boweryboy

    Has Raf Simons taken over Sportmax too?

    • Denise Alden


  • schadenfreudelicious

    Nothing about the dress flatters any part of her figure….she is very pretty, but my eye keeps being drawn to the fact that her eyebrows appear to match her roots….

  • Mothra

    Who told her to wear those shoes? and that dress is a misery. Her face and hair are ok, though.

    • kimmeister

      A mean friend.

  • Wink

    At least she didn’t take hair and makeup tips from the models. Yikes.

  • @Biting Panda

    Now I want to see a “soft butch Lauren Hutton” style on someone, pronto.

    • MilaXX

      I think it would really work well on her.

    • Jacob Bowen

      My thoughts exactly, and I wish Anne Hathaway would go back to her soft butch phase!

      • @Biting Panda

        I think she still is. I caught an airport pap photo, all black, possibly some boots involved. It was good.

  • FibonacciSequins

    The gapping in the back…nope. She must not have done a mirror side-view check when she tried this on.

  • Vegas Girl

    I’m torn. Don’t like the waist, but I thought several dresses that were raved over today were doing funky things to the waists. I hate the shoes. BUT – this is by the best she’s ever looked, so I really want to like it.

  • hughman

    I am distracted by the Smurf bukkake.

    • Gatto Nero

      You win!

  • LOVE that lipstick. I don’t even see the rest.

  • Qitkat

    Jackson Pollock is miffed. He tossed that canvas in the bin.
    Looks like plastic color-coated electrical wires got gnarled up.

    • demidaemon

      You know, my best friend–an artist–hates Jackson Pollack with all the burning of a thousand suns. Totally off-topic, but that’s where my thoughts went.

  • ktr33

    I was all like, hmm, I don’t think it’s SO bad until – yikes! the hem and the tulle and the HORRIBLE shoes. _Sub_-bridal. The dress actually looks cool on the model on the right, with the contrast-y belt and the more subdued hem. But ultimately, not this actressgirl’s dress at all. And nobody’s shoes.

    • Imasewsure

      Yes it was a scroll down meh-to-gasp (but not a good gay gasp) for sure

  • J.W.

    The orange lipstick plus blonde hair plus brown eyebrows seems like a ‘deconstruction’ of the print on the dress and I find it disconcerting.

  • MilaXX

    The only thing I like here is the hair & makeup. Burn everything else and get new stylist.

  • Man Dala

    The skirt is bumpy in the back, as if the waist were too big for her and the extra fabric had been hidden under the belt. Hate the black sheer and the shoes.

  • KT

    She definitely needs a more laid-back look. I understand that she probably wants to get all fancy whenever she can, since she’s otherwise in prison drag, but this doesn’t suit her at all. This is all so harsh and severe — she looks great with just minimal makeup, and could definitely stand to do something more beachy with her hair. She should start there, and then find clothes that will match that vibe. Nice effort honey, but none of this is flattering your naturally beautiful looks.

  • HUNEY…. It doesn’t fit!

  • I’m willing to volunteer to throw paint at her outfits, as long as she lets me choose the outfits.

    I’ll be dropping in with a bunch of DVF wrap dresses in solid colours to WICKETY WACK UP for her. 🙂

  • decormaven

    She’s got the looks, but her stylist hasn’t got the first clue how to dress her client. Come on- she’s getting ready for the debut of S2. Step it up, people!

  • Madeline Zappala

    IMO the dress isn’t the worst thing – the HAIR and makeup are horribly unflattering guh

  • It would have been ever so slightly improved if she’d worn the one on the right instead of the one on the left.

  • Youbeguilemenot

    I wish her hair was styled differently!

  • shopgirl716

    I always thought the skinny blondes had an easier time dressing themselves. Guess I was wrong!

  • Danielle

    This is one of the better headsuits she’s deployed. I may explode before June 6th gets here, kittens.

  • Imasewsure

    “This isn’t the worst thing we’ve seen her in” is never a good start…. and then we have this…. poor dear….

  • Jean Beaton Leavitt

    I wish I could take scissors to that see through stuff.

  • musi_

    That first shot at a glance made me think ‘Blonde Katy Perry?’ ..just me? They’re not twins.. but maybe it’s the hair… I’m sure KP was rocking that a while back

  • Amel

    GTNYD, pack it up and send it to Rosario Dawson or Lupita Nyong’o

  • Hair and make-up are her best yet though. But that’s all I got. What TLo said.

  • Glammie

    Her next show needs to be costumed by Jane Bryant. Poor dear doesn’t have a chance to find out what looks good in her having to wear a prison uniform all the time.

  • Twix

    This woman is in desperate need of a middle part.

  • I kinda like this. She has a unique look and it’s a unique dress.

  • dschubba

    “soft butch Lauren Hutton style”

    Whoop, there it is. That would be perfect for her.

  • demidaemon

    She looks better in a beige prison jump suit.

  • Jecca2244

    but serious question, who is she using as a stylist?

  • MarissaLG

    It would have been really cute without the extra sheer fabric hanging off the end.

  • The skirt makes the runway models look hippy. The runway models are not hippy. Taylor Schilling is not hippy. That is an evil skirt.

  • OhSheila

    On a happy note, that’s the youngest her face has looked in ever. Very blond Katy Perry.

  • Clash D

    I like the dress colour and print but agree that the (sheer) hem is terrible and the shoes are bridal.

    She also looks like a blond Katy Perry. That is all.

  • Is she contractually obligated to wear that lip color to promote her show?

  • Fuchsiaforever

    There should be a warning before you scroll-down! That’s a hiddy skirt! Gasp! Mon dieu! Ohlala!
