Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang at Rodeo Drive Store Opening

Posted on June 19, 2014

Jesus take the wheel, this girl is in serious need of a makeover.

What the HELL IS GOING ON HERE? That eye makeup looks like it was applied with a piece of candy she took out of her mouth and the hair makes her look like a drag queen doing a Carol Brady impersonation. And we curse the world of celebrity style for forcing us to make two cliched Golden Girls references in one day, but this totally looks like something Dorothy would sleep in. They’re not totally awful pieces (although we question whether that top can be styled any better), but she shouldn’t be wearing them together. It’s really everything going on above her neck that should have her firing people. If we were her friends, we’d suggest not just firing the people responsible, but suing their asses off. Can’t she claim pain and suffering or something? Can’t we?

  • Dental hygienist!

    • KiP07

      Yes! In my imaginary narrative she is a young dental hygienist who dresses a bit frumpier so she seems older and so patients will assume she has more professional experience. Ugh, this just doesn’t work for me. Even if she wore a better top there would still be that hair and makeup.

      • Vera’s collections other than bridal and gowns are tragic. She wants to be this intellectual guru designer…winds up with messy and depressing looks most of the time. Years ago I interviewed with her…for a job on this line. Her first question to me was what I thought of that season’s Jill Sanders collection…. Apparently that’s her goal.

        • Kent Roby

          Thanks for the interesting inside info, Bert!

          • My pleasure. Trust me… I’ve got more….

          • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

            Write a book, Bert. 🙂

          • How much would the fashion industry punish him for such a thing? It doesn’t seem like the kind of world that would allow it, given how controlling over it’s own image it seems.

          • One day….

          • MoHub

            Let me know when you’re ready to start writing that book, Bert! I’ll be your pro bono copyeditor!

          • Raspberry2012

            We wanna hear!

        • suzanne77

          If she’s going for Jil Sanders, she is missing it by a country mile! (Also, Hi Bert!)

          • That interview was around 1993-94. Even still…in my lowly opinion, she has never had her own real point of view for this collection.

        • That’s why Vera needs your help, Bert!

        • evave2

          She is such a pretty girl on Big Bang Theory and she looks great in the trashy clothes they have her in.

          But this whole look from top to bottom makes her look like a divorcee trying to pick up guys. I think the hair ages her.

          And she is so pretty!

  • shirab

    If you look like your hair was cut with kindergarten-issue safety scissors and your eyes were made up with magic markers, you are doing something wrong.

    • I think that was for a….very very gritty movie so she just got it styled the best she could

  • Jennifer Bober

    Okay, those pieces together are just scary! WAY too much bad print going on here. That fabric should never have been made into a top and is just acceptable for bottoms.

  • smh4748

    Wow, this is stunningly aging. If I didn’t know who she was and just had to guess at her age, I’d put her around 43, no question.

    Probably not the impression the average 28-year-old wishes to make.

    • I’ve never heard of her before, and I was genuinely astonished to see here that she’s in her 20s. I was definitely thinking 40s or 50s.

    • Tami from Seattle

      Holy crap, she’s not even 30? She looks like she’s going to a silent auction to support her daughter’s cheerleading squad.

    • Fuchsiaforever

      WHAT?! You mean she’s not 53??? I have no idea who she is btw….

      • MoHub

        Have you seen the Priceline ads with the Negotiator’s daughter? She plays the daughter and is a nice match for Shatner.

        • Fuchsiaforever



        She’s also one of the stars of the most popular sit-com on television, The Big Bang Theory, where she plays the hot mid-western tomboy (and would-be actress) that several of her nerdy neighbors lust after.

        • Fuchsiaforever

          Oh yeah! That’s her name? What a crazy name. I like her but her taste is in her ass!

  • RussellH88

    She should tell her Stylist “Eat dirty and die, trash” if they’re going to insist on dressing her like a Golden Girl.

  • alyce1213

    Vera Whut???? This gal works at the fanciest spa in Beverly Hills. Hair and makeup are atrocious, the shoes are kind of cute.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Mimi from the old Drew Carey show would like her eyeshadow back….

    • Denise Alden

      OMG. I’d give anything if Ms. Cuoco could see your comment!

    • Wink

      Nailed it!

  • lecoffeeaddict

    This reminds me of the episode of Friends where Ross does Rachel’s makeup. Except instead of being hysterical, this is just sad.

    • MoHub

      Or Homer Simpson’s makeup gun set to Clown.

  • She reminds me of Christine Lahti. I think Ms Lahti would reject this ensemble for being frumpy though.

    • @Biting Panda

      I adore Christine Lahti. She’s not in enough things.

      • rh33

        I agree! I’ll watch anything with Christine Lahti or Allison Janney.

        • SugarSnap108

          If there were something–anything–that starred both of them, I might never stop watching it. If this thing exists, don’t tell me, because I need time for other things.

        • P M

          Add in Connie Britton and I don’t think I’d ever get off my couch.

  • Kara Keenan

    Totally aged herself 30 years with this outfit and horrible hair.

    • Constant Reader

      Agreed. if I didn’t know better, I’d think she was a woman in her 50s going out for cocktails with the girls.

      • Steve Ek

        She looks more like a woman in her 70’s who just finished her nightcap of a Smirnoff martini with a valium chaser and is off to bed.

    • Raspberry2012

      She really did. And she’s really pretty when she’s just normal looking, but this is atrocious AND aging!

  • elirt

    She’s got no style – I have yet to see her in anything that doesn’t age her or look too harsh. It’s odd when she plays a bubbly young thing on TV, but off screen she seems really dark and tends to go towards overly complicated outfits.

  • nomoreprinces

    She’s channeling her inner Kate Gosselin, who is not someone anyone should want to channel.

    • Raspberry2012

      Noooo, we would change that channel!

  • hillmad

    Depressed camouflage scrubs!

    • Kayceed

      This is all rather hilariously morose.

  • AllisonAndStuff

    I thought, “MAN, what happened to Felicity Huffman? She usually looks so put together and youthful!”

  • Anna

    It was so good of Kaley to stop by the Vera Wang store opening after her 12-hour shift at Cedars Sinai. The floral scrubs and her trusty Wet-n-Wild shadow-liner are always in her locker for those “Just In Case” moments.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    Her mouth looks like it would really rather be home, enjoying a glass of wine, but SHE decided they were going out.

    • Theresa

      She looks like she is seriously trying to hold back her standard fish-pucker face, for which I can only commend her, but she is straining!

  • KinoEye

    AHAHAHAHAHA. Let me tell you, nothing makes me feel more vindicated than seeing the Queen of My Irrational Hate List looking so bad. I’m a bitch that way. But what really takes this — and most anything else she wears — to the next level of awful is that perpetually smug, sour look on her face. Maybe it’s her equivalent of RBF. But I think it was the great @Bitingpanda who once said there was intent in that mean little expression, and I couldn’t agree more.

    • @Biting Panda

      Well, I don’t remember if that was me, but I am a bitch that way too.

    • Imasewsure

      We are the BITTER Kittens after all…. the warm fuzzy kittens are on Facebook

      • Fuchsiaforever


  • The event says “Vera Wang” but is it really sponsored by SAS Shoes?

    • mjude


    • Grumpy Girl

      That was my line, that I cannot cross. I broke my foot a few years ago, and the orthopedist was swearing by those things, and I was like, hell no. I will wear fluorescent cross-trainer nikes with my dress before I put on those things.

    • not_Bridget

      I like SAS shoes. Should I ever attend a Gala, they would not be my choice.

  • IAmJ

    When I saw the thumbnail, I thought this was Nancy Grace.

    • Alyssa

      I hope she reads your comment, then fires everyone responsible and (finally) gets a new team.

    • @Biting Panda

      When Nancy Grace and Kate Gosslin are being called to people’s minds, you are failing at your bid to be the next Jennifer Aniston.

  • Danielle

    Girl, you are twenty-eight. There is absolutely no excuse to dress like you’re sixty-eight.

  • hughman

    “Mama just needs a little something to drink, ok baby? Now you just do your homework while Mama has some of her Happy Juice. You have such pretty hair. Did I ever tell you that? Oops, I spilled a little. Oh well. Go get Scooby from the yard so he can come in and lick it up. You know, I’m awfully tired. I think Mama’s just gonna go lay down for a minute. Just heat up some fish sticks if you get hungry.”

    • Sarah

      And could you bring me my Virginia Slims, darling? I just cant muster the energy to fetch them.

      • hughman

        “No, it’s fine. I just light them on the stove.”

      • mjude

        you 2 are KILLING me!

  • Alyssa

    This girl has not had a decent public appearance ever, at least that I can remember. She needs some serious help.

    • Denise Alden

      Yes, and what’s been said many a time before, she really irks, because she has the lowest difficulty setting (ie thin, white, blond, etc.) For the love of god.

      • Alloy Jane

        “Lowest Difficulty Setting” LOL that is such a funny yet apt way of describing the “thin/white/blonde” condition. Jesus but she looks older than Jane Fonda here.

        • decormaven

          Older than Methusalah.

  • AnaRoW

    She looks like a cross between Nicole Richie and Kate Gosselin.

  • FrigidDiva

    She looks like a blonde Kris Jenner, with blue eye shadow.

    • Denise Alden

      Ouch! 🙂

  • mjude

    the bitter kittens are on fire today. love you…LOL

  • lalahartma

    Yes, she needs help.

  • V No Privacy

    is the top even…supposed to be….fastened like that? the bottom looks uneven. or is it just the way it’s hanging? I see no buttons. I am confused.

  • LadyVimes

    The outfit would look good with a wide black belt. The hair and makeup is unsalvageable.

  • YoungSally

    WTF — It’s like she’s channeling Melanie Griffith for a Lifetime TV film

  • kimmeister

    I disagree, I think this is something that Blanche would wear to sleep. Dorothy was all about high-necked nightgowns.

    • demidaemon

      Yep. But, at least, Blanche would make it a lot more sensual than this. Not that it would take much.

  • Constant Reader

    I know this is really a side issue given that the outfit is entirely tragic, but what in holy hell would she carry in a clutch that long? Drum sticks? Chopsticks? Artist’s paint brushes? Skewers for those impromptu s’mores moments that might crop up?

    • schadenfreudelicious

      a bagette?

      • Constant Reader

        Now that is an idea I could support.

    • Alyssa

      I can’t imagine what the inside of the clutch looks like after putting a tube of lipstick in it. Every time you move the clutch, the lipstick rolls the long distance from the top to bottom (and in my head, make sounds like a rain stick). It’s inevitable the lid will come off, and paint the inside.

  • PinkyK

    She often looks dirty like she smells bad…

  • conniemd

    Scrubs, bad make-up, purse from the bargain bin and bangs that are 2 months past needing a cut and smirky face. Who is this woman?

  • Formal scrubs.

  • Mothra

    JAMMIES! And I think the top is buttoned wrong, but Not Quite Sure.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    She just got like 20 years older. Do not like.

  • Glam Dixie

    If I had not actually seen her looking cute with my own eyes, I would wonder if she were even capable of it, like maybe she was just unfortunate looking or something. But no, it’s just her style team that is unfortunate.

  • Vtg Fashion Library

    I see a Real Housewife here. Why, Kelly, WHY?

  • joancarol

    Her purse looks like a giant cheese grater.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I keep scrolling up and trying to think of something clever to say, but this shit is mind-boggling.

  • carrie

    she must be a reeeeeeeeeal bitch to her “team”.

  • AthenaJ

    Is she wearing pieces from the Vera Wang for Kohls line? Cause that’s what it looks like.

  • Jenna621

    It’s so sad because she is so cute on BBT!

  • TinyDynamo

    She looks PISSED. And well she should. Yowza.

  • Diane Iafrate

    I hate it when they make pretty people look awful. It’s like they did it on purpose!!

  • lunchcoma

    Kaley Cuoco is 28 years old. She looks like a morning talk show host of 53 on a particularly bad wardrobe day. Get a new makeup artist, hair stylist, and stylist stylist ASAP.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Hi Aunt Mary. Um, what are you doing here?

  • Gatto Nero

    Her expression says it all.

  • Looks like the sale rack at my local Goodwill. I live in a big retiree population, and I promise you, something almost identical is probably sitting there right now! Or not…wait a minute..that’s why it’s there! Silly me.

  • elemspbee

    omg what happened to her? This hair cut was really cute. At least when she posted it on instagram soon after she got it. WTF did her people do to her? she has serious grounds to sue, and so do we!

    • @Biting Panda

      That first cut off hers is what I took into the salon, when I had my very, very, long locks chopped. What this is, I don’t even understand.

      • marlie

        You mean THIS isn’t what you were going for? Thank the lord.

  • J.W.

    Veterinarian’s assistant.

  • Ragnarockette

    I think the print and colors are lovely, although I wish the top was just a plain black t-shirt with a big, edgy necklace. The Kate Gosselin head is unforgiveable, though.

  • …ah, I like the cut of the shoes from this angle? Trying to be positive….

  • alyce1213

    Is the past tense of Rodeo Drive “Rodeo Drove,” the spot to shop for passé clothing?

  • TwiddlyStun

    The head makes her look older and the outfit makes her look less svelte. I don’t think that’s what the actresses generally aim for, especially as she usually doesn’t mind showing off her assets, which are “smokin hot” as the kids say these days.

  • Meri

    Ok, I am the LEAST competent person in the world when it comes to makeup (which is why I so seldom wear it) and I could do better. That’s beyond bad, it’s pathetic.

  • suzq

    I have to recuse myself. I know one of her makeup artists, although I’m not sure she did this one.

    • marlie

      Hypothetically, would you ever say “hey friend, you know, your client’s look REALLY didn’t photograph well yesterday…”?

  • gitchygitchymama

    May the (MAC) forcefield be with you.

  • Nicola Anna Molly Page

    Zhooze the hair (which looked lovely freshly done), bin the top because those sleeves are unforgivable, opt for a fitted black tee, dangly earrings and loads of bangles on on arm. The shoes are ok. The make up is too matchy for this, but it is pretty.

    Ah, now I feel better.

  • Joyce VG

    Kaley is such a beautiful woman. But this whole look is not flattering on her at all.

  • OffToSeeHim

    But she looks like she knows it too, you know? Vera Wang is just not as interesting a designer AT ALL as I always thought she was. And her line for Kohl’s is so Mom-wear I think it’s pulling down all the other stuff.

  • FibonacciSequins

    How is this happening to Kaley Cuoco? She should have access to talented stylists, hair and makeup people.

  • GeoDiva

    I didn’t realize she was so close to retirement!

  • Michelle Gennari

    Hmm…I kind of like how she looks. :::slinking away to the corner::::

  • Dagney

    Gosh, just a couple of tweeks might make this work. Better makeup, well, duh. A strappy shoe, or a pointy metallic, something in gunmetal. Hair,….more sleek, or something.

  • melanie0866

    I saw the thumbnail and thought, “Hey, Melanie Griffith is looking really good these days!”

    • MandyM

      BWAHAHAHAHA! Totally right!

  • Man Dala

    Gurl, that’s not your hair / makeup / nurse scrubs / shoes / clutch.

    • Man Dala

      I think Zoe wore one of those in ‘Nurse Jackie’.

  • Man Dala

    Remember that scene in “Bridget Jones: The Age Of Reason” where she gets her hair done before the lawyers’ ball gala? “Bridget, whatever you do, DON’T iron your hair”.

  • Yoshio

    what cute jammies!

  • demidaemon

    Ultimate headsuit fail! Well done, Kaley. You have set a new low.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    This is a shame. I used to see her now and then on that show “Eight Simple Rules …” With John Ritter, and she was so cute. What happened, Kaley??? You are attractive and an well-known actor. You should look better than this.

  • Ali B


  • Trickytrisha

    Did she think “if Lupita can wear this eyeshadow, so can I?” If so, she was dead wrong.

  • psykins

    That smirk, hair, and eye makeup is giving me oldschool Grinch realness….

  • amf0001

    She looks like the 55 yo drunk auntie at the wedding… I’d sit next to her and get all the gossip

  • marlie

    Her hair and makeup… WHO thought this was acceptable for her to be seen in public? Seriously, I want to know so that I can be sure to avoid them if I ever become famous and need a stylist. The outfit is awful, but her HAIR… her MAKEUP… poor thing.

  • MandyM

    She needs to get the people who do her hair and make up for Big Bang to take care of her red carpet looks. She’s so cute on BBT, but outside the show, she looks like a hot mess. This is just plain awful. She needs to go home and start over.

  • gingerella

    Her hairstyle looks like a middle-aged barfly’s. I can smell the cigarette smoke and bourbon from here.

  • Looks like she tried to escape the loony bin by dressing in the night nurses’ scrubs and slipping out the employee entrance.

  • SierraDelta

    Her eye color and eye shadow are practically the same colors as her outfit — way too literal an interpretation.

  • formerlyAnon

    I was thinking a bargain basement Goldie Hawn costume.

  • MilaXX

    I feel like I need to apologize for calling Kelly Osborne’s dress too mature. Kaley looks like she stopped by on her way to play canasta in Boca Raton.

  • CatLady

    No no no! She looks like a cougar on the prowl D:

    it’s no excuse for this horrible outfit but she’s clearly pregnant. check out her last few outfits.

  • Monabel

    Yes, what you said. But can I have a few yards of that fabric?

  • Patrick Cleary

    Is she starring in “The Sandy Duncan Story” or something?

  • Radish

    She looks like she could be Nancy Grace’s sister.

  • queeniethebold

    i hate that she looks so bad, because i really love her on BBT.

    I hate everything about this look, though the pants might be salvageable with other pieces.

  • Mona_Visa

    The poor, scary dear. (seriously, that close-up photo is disturbing.)

  • Raspberry2012

    I just have no words for this – it’s crazy, top to bottom! It’s like she decided to go for everything wrong – the outfit, the accessories, shoes, makeup, hair. It’s just head to toe crazy!

  • Tracy_Flick

    It just looks handmade – like a PR challenge where the designer scrapped their first concept and only had 15 min to whip it up – no time to press and finish. And the hair and makeup… do you think she knows it looks like that? Is she going for irony?

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, Flounder.

  • Kelly

    Ahaha, drag Carol Brady. Exactly. You boys nail it yet again. And I had the same first thought about how PJ-like the outfit is, and not in a good way.
