Jennifer Morrison at the “Wish I Was Here” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on June 24, 2014

Somewhere, Sporty Spice lifts her head up from obscurity and briefly wonders if she should contact a lawyer.

Honey, whoever talked you into those pants for the red carpet? Is an asshole. You need to leave right now, find them, and beat them with one of your 25-lb. shoes until they promise to stop hurting people.

Not that the jacket is great or anything, but we could see it being paired up with different pieces and looking kind of cheeky and fun. But there’s no way to make gathered-at-the-ankle workout pants paired with 4-inch heels look anything but tragically trashy. The top knot really helps to give the overall look that “People of Walmart” feel to it.

    Well the hell is with that little topknot? It looks like Pinterest Hair.

    If you’re going to go Full Sporty you need a ponytail, everyone knows that.

    • Thomas

      How do you always comment first? Lol

      • RussellH88

        I’m bored at work and i have my Twitter open, so I always see TLo’s tweet about the newest post.

        • Thomas

          I just noticed that when I open a post, your comments are usually the oldest lol

          • RussellH88

            It comes from not having a life.

          • BarniClaw

            As someone who spends far, far too much time on this site, I laughed out loud at this.

          • MilaXX

            me too!

          • smayper

            Me too, to both!

          • Fuchsiaforever

            Me three! Lol

          • Thomas

            No worries. Same here lol I just thought you were refreshing all the time or something

          • RussellH88

            If I ever got to that point, I’d expect some merciful soul to euthanize me.

          • Sarah

            NOBODY DOES THAT. Nobody. Certainly not me. Nope.

          • Nikko Viquiera

            Nope, not me!

          • Introspective

            yes ma’am. nobody at all.

          • Fuchsiaforever

            Me neither

          • NinjaCate

            Don’t feel bad. I’m definitely a refresher when I’m waiting for the Drag Race recaps on Tuesday morning. (Don’t tell…..!)

          • Glam Dixie

            I’ve actually forced myself to wait for other people to post first before I do so that it gives me the appearance of possibly having a life.

          • RussellH88

            If I waited, I’d then forget and wouldn’t post at all. I’m that person.

    • ChiKat67

      I read an interview where she (very proudly) stated that she does her own hair for most of these things…

      • Alyssa

        That explains a lot…

      • barbarienne

        Apparently she’s in a terrible hurry, always short for time?

    • CPK1

      Agreed, although the almost Croydon facelift is on the money

      • Introspective

        oh damn. love this reference. ironically have a cousin that works at the croydon ikea. last time i was in england visited my cuz at work and on the way saw some girls out there with the topknot and was just like omg i cant.

    • demidaemon

      That’s her go-to hair.

      It’s really, really bad.

    • Fuchsiaforever


  • Thomas

    OMG I’m having flashbacks to the late 90s and early 2000s, and they’re NOT GOOD.

  • TinyDynamo

    She wouldn’t know good style if it walked up to her & bit her. As a thin blonde woman, she has 90% of her work in being considered attractive done; her clothing & styling choices manage to torpedo that advantage to hell.

    ETA: that stupid topknot just solidified my decision to cut my hair into a bob or shorter again later today. So thanks for that, Jennifer Morrison.

    • Denise Alden

      “As a thin blonde woman, she has 90% of her work in being considered attractive done” Couldn’t agree more!

    • @Biting Panda

      I’m still rockin my bob. Being a former messy, top bun, junky, I can say, I’m not going back.

      • Jackie4g

        A one length bob is all my hair will do.

      • TinyDynamo

        All done with The Chop and it’s is sooooooo good! 7 inches of long thick curly annoyance gone gone gone! Tousled bobs FTW!

        • @Biting Panda

          Well done, you!

    • marlie

      I think TLo have described it as the “lowest difficulty setting.”

    • smayper

      I am now having a wonderful image of good style (in the person of, say, Cate), walking up and suddenly biting her. Or Biting Panda could do it!!

  • Everything about this is terrible but I think my least favorite part is the shoes. They’re trying to hide in plain sight but really just take the outfit to the next level of awful.

    • SugarSnap108

      She constantly wears this style of shoe, but I think this is the worst rendition I’ve seen. They’re like Reebok Pump pumps.

  • Sobaika

    This is my Hungover & Walking Home look. Whatever clothes I can pilfer from wherever I crashed, a topknot to hide the greasy roots, and last night’s heels.

  • decormaven

    That is one tragic look. Definitely use those shoes for revenge purposes.

  • Anna

    Jennifer: Stop, right now. Thank you very much.

  • Gatto Nero

    Oh hell no.

  • Glam Dixie

    Her facial expression really is the best, this whole get up made me laugh. She has to be fucking with us.

    • Dorothy & Michael n/a

      In the fourth picture it looks to me like she’s deeply unhappy and about to burst into tears. I’d cry too if I was dressed like that and went out in public.

  • Adjusting the turn of phrase slightly, I would love a designer line called “People of Walmart” – high end interpretation of bargain wear.

    • moxie_lady

      You mean Moschino?

    • Derelicte?

    • alyce1213

      Do you remember Rodney Dangerfield in “Easy Money” — The Regular Guy Look? It was prescient, actually — of hipster and nerd looks.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Hoofy Spice…

    • Tami from Seattle

      I need to “like” your post eight more times!

    • @Biting Panda

      Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

    • Introspective

      dead. snorting at my computer right now…

  • Judy_S

    Aside from how awful the clothes are, they make her look hunched and awkward. It’s hard to believe there is an outfit that can make her look that bad.

  • SugarSnap108

    I’m just gonna say it. This woman has no taste.

  • shirab

    “Wish I Were Here,” not “was.” Not that Hollywood cares…

    • smayper

      Thank you! I wish I didn’t care about grammar, but I do.

      • shirab

        No no, please continue to care! There are still a bunch of us out here, looking for support.

  • MarissaLG

    Hate the outfit but pop some bangs on that head and that’s my hair style like, 24/5.

    • Aidan B

      Perfectly acceptable, given that you don’t have hair & makeup people on your payroll. For celebs at a red carpet event there’s no excuse! And anyway, I’m sure yours looks a LOT better than hers.

    • Constant Reader

      With a different outfit (really, with almost anything else) and a better dye job that hair could be totally cute. It’s the combination of elements that take this look to Tackytown.

  • Artesian_Belle

    After seeing these pictures I finally realized that I AM SO GLAD my fine and thin hair has made it impossible for me to succumb to the top knot…

  • Sarah

    Yes, outfit’s ridiculous. Also, her hair doesn’t look good that blonde, and her falsies are giving me the tarantula-lash creeps. I prefer her in a lab coat on House. She was dressed so tastefully and normal on that show I always get surprised when I see her IRL.

    • SugarSnap108

      I miss Dr. Cameron and her vests, and her non-insane shoes.

      • Sarah

        She could rock a little sweater vest, couldn’t she? I’m rewatching the whole series right now and I’m still in the beginning where she had a crush on House.

        • SugarSnap108

          I should start re-watching on Netflix. It was so good in the early days. And JM’s hair looked good brown (though I think she’s a natural blonde, so I’m not criticizing).

          • Sarah

            Yep, that’s where I’m watching. I think blonde is fine, but this pic is giving me brassy – maybe it’s just the light. I think with her looks I always think of her as a more classic sort of girl, not so much suited to the edgy & modern.

    • tmetz85

      She has always been on my irrational hate list – starting with her on House. Thought maybe it was just the character but I rewatched the entirety of House again and also hate her in everything else, I have come to the conclusion not only does she play insufferable characters but she is irritating in her acting.

      • Sarah

        Huh. I think she’s kind of…not somebody I’d be friends with on House, but not particularly bothersome. But, I have a crapload of hateration for all kinds of innocent actors and actresses so I feel you.

  • MilaXX

    Why is she posing like she’s the long lost member of New Kids on the Block? More importantly why is such a pretty young lady always looking so busted on the RC?

  • NMMagpie

    Stripes, bun, and hooves. Just start over.

  • Tami from Seattle

    *sob* Why, Jennifer? I can’t unsee this.

  • doodley

    My daughter is a 12-year-old gymnast, and that’s almost exactly what her hair looks like when she puts it into a bun in the middle of practice, without benefit of a mirror or hairbrush.

  • Aidan B

    Does that top knot have a braid in it??

    • J.W.

      Looks like a braid to me.

    • Alyssa

      Yes it does. She does really enjoy the Heidi braids, so that doesn’t surprise me with her.

  • jen_vasm

    Somebody needs to save her from herself. Her style is unironically pathetic.

    • Shawn EH

      She’s got to start letting somebody else make ALL her choices. She has no instincts.

  • RescueMe23

    Let’s do “Celebrities of Walmart!”

    • Constant Reader

      Yes! The Kardashians could lead that list.

  • @Biting Panda

    You mad, Bro?

  • Meri

    I like the earrings, and… I’m done now.

  • CPK1

    Awesome, awesome post

  • SistaT

    Why does she always look so exhausted?

    • DuBey2

      And mad?

  • kimmeister

    The jacket could be cheekily cute if it weren’t for the pockets on top of the white stripes, totally interrupting the line!

  • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

    Please tell me I’m not the only one with “Wannabe” stuck in her head now….

  • Wink

    Formal athletic wear? I didn’t know there was such a thing.

    • Lori

      There isn’t.

  • “People of Walmart,” omg. You guys know how to land a burn.

  • Wendi126

    She looks stoned which might explain the teletubbie hair, tracksuit, and spider lashes.

  • KES4K

    I mean, the outfit is bad as-is, but it’s also a missed opportunity to deploy Designer Sneakers (TM) as seen on the recent Chanel runway (among others). As with Olivia Wilde’s eye-searing Stella dresses last week, why not go full-comfort? Loungewear+uncomfortable footwear better not become *a thing*!

  • Constant Reader

    A bad dye job with roots showing, a messy “coping with hot and humid weather” topknot, overdone eye makeup, and sky-high heels with what is essentially an expensive track suit is a combination that is incredibly aging on her.

  • Danielle

    THOSE pants with THOSE shoes is pure “I slept off all the Jager somewhere other than my apartment”.

  • MartyBellerMask

    I kinda don’t think she had any help getting dressed. The record shows Ms. Morrisson is always a hot mess.

  • ashtangajunkie

    In my version of this premiere, Mandy Patinkin played Ginger and Zach Braff was Posh.

  • Cheryl

    Non, non, non!

  • frannyprof

    What is this gal’s deal? She is always such a mess on the RC.

  • elirt

    I have yet to see her dress well. It’s like she goes out of her way to look overly done (or in this instance underdone) while having sloppy hair and/or make-up or both. Frustrating. It’s one way to stick out since she’s another pretty blond in Hollywood.

  • E.Nelson

    Tom. Lorenzo. Adopt me. I just want you to come with me to every event I go to and tell my friends why they need to go home and goddamn change.

    Also, would anyone else pay to see TLo in a cameo in some film where a former Spice Girl tries to sue a stylist for “style copyright damages” or some bullshit charge like that – and they rip some stylist to shreds?

    • crash1212

      ::raises hand:: I would! I would!

  • Violentcello

    Oof, People of Walmart. That’s a low blow.

    Not saying it isn’t deserved, but ouch.

  • Zuber

    People wish she wasn’t there in that outfit. The irony of ‘Wish I was here’ Premiere.

  • Little_Olive

    Boy, she has the worst sartorial instincts. And roots.

  • Molly

    There’s top-knots and then there’s over-the-top knots. Honestly, I’ve never seen that hairstyle look so ridiculous on a person.

  • EveEve

    Squandering her 15 minutes.

  • marlie

    Those pants and shoes are all sorts of unfortunate. She took the athletic-wear look of the jacket too far by wearing the sweatpants and having post-gym hair.

  • conniemd

    This poor woman makes the awfulest fashion choices. And they are all over the place, just random bad, unlike certain stars we can count on to be frumpy or “do me.”

  • PinkyK

    That hair is horrible! It looks dirty.

  • MarieLD

    I don’t like her, so it doesn’t matter. Keep on dressing like that, Jen.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’m confused. A tracksuit suit?

    The real tragedy is her hair and makeup. She looks pale and sweaty.

  • Mel C is still totally relevant, thank you very much.

  • Annmarie Kane

    The people of Walmart are deeply offended.

  • Lex

    HA HA HA! Man, I cannot stop crying from laughter over these pictures. The PANTS. The SHOES. The clearly stoned eyes. The HORROR. WOW. This is a hysterically funny-in-a-bad-way train wreck.

  • Even if Stella McCartney is not the designer, I am going to blame her anyway. Because I bet she was thinking about designing this.

    • Annmarie Kane

      I blame Stella McCartney for everything in the world that is fugly.

    • DuBey2

      Thank you: I needed that laugh.

  • She looks exhausted from balancing that giant hairball on her head.

  • traceyishere

    She has spiders on her eyes and they want to kill her.

  • Joanna

    She tries so very hard, and misses the mark by a huge margin every. single. time.

  • JP

    Loretta Swit is calling her lawyer over the Hot Lips hair.

  • GeoDiva

    She can be such the trainwreck…… Someone give this woman a stylist for Christmas!

  • livesarah

    Haha People of Walmart reference FTW!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Unless you’re going to the gym or planning to enter a NASCAR race, pants with racing stripes are not appropriate.

  • SophieCollier

    I have determined that the closer to your face your topknot is, the dumber you look.

  • quiltrx

    Subtracting literally everything else (including her), I can see that jacket being cute. Poor jacket, it got mistreated.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    But her roots perfectly match the outfit! A-maz-ing!

  • Fuchsiaforever

    Omg what a hideous look! Unbelievable! Who the hell is she?

  • Clash D

    Sports Tuxedo Yoga…thingy.

  • E. D.

    Fire everyone involved with this! Especially the colorist, hairstylist and whoever picked those pants.

  • JynxTheCat

    Tracksuit and yoga hair at a premiere equals immediate firing from fame. COME ON!
