Girl, That’s Not Your Dress: Olivia Munn in Vionnet at the “Deliver Us From Evil” Screening

Posted on June 25, 2014

Olivia, what a lovely, skin-colored look you’ve put together, dear.

Great shape, very dramatic, shows off the goods nicely. But hon, it belongs on Lupita Nyong’o. Go and find a version of this look that doesn’t match your skin tone exactly, and then we won’t be left with the unfortunate impression that you have yards of extra skin that you decided to have pleated.

Also: we’re not sure anyone human could make ass pleats work. We won’t hold that one against you.

Also-also: This is a knockout of a look (even if it is the wrong color) and it deserved more than your “just left the gym” hair.

    Can’t believe she matched the shoes to it too. This would look fabulous on Lupita, but I still would prefer it in a jewel tone.

  • Sobaika

    Gurl. Would a strong bronze kill you? You’d still get the same effect without looking cadaverous from the neck down.

  • Wink

    Finally! Someone figured out what do with Joan Crawford’s old drapes.

    • Thomas

      Do you think the drapes were hanging on wire hangers?

      • Wink

        No. Wire. Hangers. EVER!

    • LadyVimes

      Scarlett O’Hara wore drapes better.

      • Wink

        So did Carol Burnett (as Scarlett)!

        • Kent Roby

          “I saw it in the window, and I just couldn’t resist”

  • Glam Dixie

    Her makeup and hair look awful, hold me! The skin pleats is not an image I needed in my head today but thanks for that guys.

    • Grumpy Girl

      Yes, if we hadn’t seen the outdoor photos of her earlier, in color, I would have thought something dreadful had happened to her face. This is NOT her makeup. Offends me even more than the color of the dress–which is quite offensive.

  • lunchcoma

    The War On Colors must be stopped.

    • evave2

      While I agree about the War on Colors, since the Versace boob horn dress I think Angelina Jolie would kill in this silhouette.

  • Introspective

    oh lord this girl is on an unstoppable poledance train eh? starting to feel like we will see her next at the opening of an envelope.

    hope to god that wherever she goes next she leaves the skin draped silence of the lambs shittery at home.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      “it rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again”…

      • Tammy_4

        Hahaha first thing I thought of too

  • marlie

    ANY other color and this dress would have looked great on her. The red lip is a great color, and I like her hair.

  • lexilexi

    This is one huge OUT. And too bad – her date was kind of cute!

    • BayTampaBay

      Don’t think it was all that bad to be an “OUT” just a big mis-step with regards to color choice.

  • TAGinMO

    Looks like she’s molting.

  • Kate Andrews

    Deliver us from that dress.

  • Denise Alden

    Ms. Madeleine is rolling in her grave.

  • Cyprienne Zed

    She needs a striking shorter haircut.

  • Denise Rambo

    If she paid someone to make her hair look like that, she needs to get her money back.

  • Call me Bee

    I don’t know why, but she just looks awful in these pictures. Kinda doll-like and pasty. Wrong lipstick? Wrong hair color? I don’t know what my Aaron sees in her….

  • kimmeister

    The hair is bad, the belt is digging into her, and those ubiquitous satin Casadei pumps are for bridesmaids only.

  • conniemd

    Love the dress. Olivia Munn is on my irrational dislike list. It’s irrational, because I’ve never seen her in anything and don’t know a thing about her personally, her looks just annoy me.

    • demidaemon

      She;s actually a pretty good actress, at least in the one movie I saw her in: Magic Mike. However, she still remains on my irrational dislike list, mostly for where she started and her role as straight male nerd’s fantasy girl stereotype.

      • Kent Roby

        I’m generally disappointed in her looks for appearances. She’s really pretty (wasn’t she a model?), yet she never seems to kill it on the RC like she should be able to do, even when she seems to be putting in the effort.

        • demidaemon

          I’m not sure if she was ever a model. It’s possible, of course. All I know is that her original start was as a host for Attack of the Show on the G4 network, and her job was to be the pretty one for “nerds” tuning in for info on everything tech and fandom related.

  • quiltrx

    The dress design is really lovely…the color just makes it so dull. Glad she’s not dark blonde, or she would be rendered completely invisible.

  • ThatVampinLady

    Like the gills of a shiitake mushroom.

    • lunchcoma

      Great. Now I’m hungry.

  • Corinne Bourgoin

    This looks like the underside of a mushroom.

  • MilaXX

    I like none of this. The dress color is wrong. The face paint looks heavy and that hair is a hot mess.

  • It’s a constellation of things I do not want to see.

  • hughman

    Coffee filter. After you forget about it and find it 4 days later in your coffee maker about to grow mold and looking like Curse of the Mummy.

    • decormaven

      Killing it!

      • Tess Tea

        Never disappoints.

  • Cheryl

    I love this dress, but would have preferred to see it as a gown, and of course as the uncles have said on Lupita.

  • decormaven

    I’ve got style whiplash. She just pulled off making Peter Pilotto work, and then she pulls this Fashion Fail?

  • Sarah

    I wonder, just a little bit, if Miss Dita Von Teese could make ass pleats work. Or at least make you THINK they were working.

    • decormaven

      Miss Dita would make this dress sing.

      • Sarah

        She would at that. Hopefully she’d choose to sport it in a non-fungus related color.

  • Imagine how pretty this would be in a midnight blue.

  • bluefish


  • Tina M.

    Stage whisper: *Your makeup is TERRRRRRRRIBLE*

  • JulieTy

    OK – does anyone think she is “really” dating Aaron Rodgers?

    • makeityourself


  • The “Other Mother” from Coraline. I am legitimately frightened.

  • lecoffeeaddict

    At the risk of doing the uncles a cultural disservice, I honestly though I was going to scroll down and see “NOT!”

  • snarkykitten

    Deliver us from skin-tone dresses

  • Mothra

    That is also not her ratty-assed wig, either.

  • Every time Olivia Munn is featured here I wonder why on earth I’m supposed to know who she is. I have no idea what she does (sing? dance? act?) or what she’s been in and I always feel like I’ve suddenly stumbled over yet another Kardashian sister who is famous for being famous. T and Lo do like talking about what’s she’s wearing though, so I guess I should look her up and stop having an internal bitch-fit about her all the time. (And also, clicking the tag with her name on it only brings up 34 previous posts and many of them are event round-ups, so she’s probably not featured here all THAT often.)

    • jonnyf8

      She’s an actress who used to date Joel Kinnaman.

      • Is that a reason to be famous? (Yeah… I don’t know who he is either.)

        I did google her though and discovered that I haven’t seen any of the movies or tv shows she’s been on. And not being a reader of Maxim or FHM (who both had her in their Top 100 Hot Women lists at some point or other)… well, I guess I’m not really in their target market.

  • LadyVimes

    All I’m seeing in the ass pleats are many, many panty lines. It’s not a good look, dear.

  • Rebecca Bledsoe

    In a completely non-fashion related aside, I literally (at least in this set of photos) do not recognize her when she’s not showing her teeth. Just a weird observation, not meant to be critical at all. Also, love seeing lipstick in an actual color, and a very pretty color at that.

  • Nancer

    Ooh girl. She was doing so much better! And what’s with the makeup? Why does she look so, well, greasy? This is a tragic step backwards. I has a sads…:(

  • rumcg66

    What is the deal with her makeup?? Somehow it totally changed the shape of her face. Either that or I’ve never seen pictures of her when she isn’t smiling. She’s unrecognizable in the closed-mouth pictures.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I had the same thoughts. Her face looks very different here.

  • traceyishere

    Bad-ass, not badass.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Lordy, I love this dress. I wish we could see it on Lupita.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I irrationally dislike her, so I experience bizarre schadenfreude whenever she looks bad. Thus, I like this post.

    • I feel the same and with no idea why. She just bugs.

  • formerlyAnon

    The hair is terrible. Terrible. I think I mind it more than the dress. Or maybe not quite.

  • Janet B

    This looks like a muslin.
    I hope this dress comes in a different fabric and color, without the pleats of course.

  • Tracy_Flick

    I disagree about sending it to Lupita, I think it would look like an Ace bandage on anyone. Or a compression sleeve. Something you’d get in a hospital after things went terribly wrong.

    ETA: But I appreciate that she’s wearing lipstick, and it a gorgeous rich shade.

  • E. D.

    Dark blue would have been great.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    That’s an absolutely ravishing lampshade that’s far too close to her skin tone.

  • Drunken Housewife

    The shoes should be burnt, and whoever styled her hair should be made to work in one of those garment factories where they sew in the SAVE ME notes to atone for this sin against fashion.

  • carolie_king

    So you loved Diane Kruger’s gym hair, but not Olivia’s? I’m just not seeing that big of a difference. Otherwise completely agree.

  • roche

    In a jewel tone that dress would have killed. And also, if she had brushed her hair.

  • stu844

    Whenever I look at this dress, all I hear is “It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again”

  • Esz

    She’s like a snake shedding her skin. Ick! Terrible hem job too. Would have looked nice in burgundy

  • d4divine

    That dress is the color of a dirty mouse.

  • judybrowni

    It will put the lotion on it’s skin (or it will get pleats.)

  • Tarquin

    That’s a Dita dress if ever I saw one.

  • israel8491

    Imagine this in teal.

  • MoHub

    Oh, Olivia! Just when you were doing so well! That dress is not only the wrong color for you, but it’s riding low. Also, the hair and makeup are adding 20 years.

  • I feel like she’s stolen someone else’s face. Lizzy Caplan’s?

    • I’ve long said she is – as they called it on Seinfeld – a “two face”. She has different faces under different lighting conditions. 🙂

      However I think she is actually more than a two face, more like a multiple face. Here in these photos alone I see several different faces.

      I really love this dress but it has done terrible things to her normally gorgeous skin tone. If this dress were the colour of her eyes or perhaps an emerald green it would be awesome on her. 🙂

      • Yes – or the colour of that stone in her ring! Could be lovely.

      • KinoEye

        Right? I don’t say this to be cruel or dismissive of her acting abilities, but she’s one of those ladies who might be suited to modeling more than acting. She can give versatile face in pictures, but she can fall strangely flat in motion. I feel the same way about Keira Knightley. Totally agreed on the need for this dress to be green. That would take it from “yards of extra skin that she decided to have pleated” to elegant and chic.

  • holla

    Maybe Dita can make the ass pleats work

  • Danielle

    It puts the lotion on the skin…

  • James

    That’s not her hair either. Yikes.

  • Little_Olive

    Sorry TLo, I don’t think it is or could have been a knockout. The effect of the belt being shorter than the waist is horrible (because, what is that thing glued on with??). The distance in the back between the cinch and her a** should bean that the latter is down to her knees.

    Also, that is not skin color. It, far worse, is dishwater color.

    Also also, her makeup the stuff of mannequins.

  • Morticia Addams would kill for that hair.

  • Mona_Visa

    Accordion-chiffony awkwardness. Throw it out.

  • ElaineMarie34

    It doesn’t look very well made. Hope she didn’t pay much for it.

  • altermyego

    Maybe we need a new category – ‘girl that’s not your color’. There are many celebs in yellow that could fit this category. Not to mention all of the old pantyhose colored outfits.
    I love this dress, but like everyone else is saying, jewel tones please!
