From the neck up, that’s a personal best for her. Unfortunately, nothing else is working. Once again, she demonstrates a lack of understanding as to what shapes work best for her. That neckline and slit are not being friendly. And we’re getting tired of that Choo. Move on, stylists.

In related news, are we all deeply excited for the Neflix-dump of Orange is the New Black’s second season on Friday? We’ve screened the first half dozen episodes and we’re FEELIN’ IT, you guys. We’ll review the first three episodes first thing on Friday and then have a three-episode review up every Friday after that, so stay up late and binge-watch, darlings.

    That dress is awful.

    It looks they just ran out of sequins.

    But she’s giving some good head, which is more than she usually serves.

    • sienna elm

      I’m sure that’s not what you meant…but I’m killing myself here…and I just cackled out loud at work! 🙂

      • smayper

        me too!

    • Kent Roby

      “Good head, not enough sequence”

  • @Biting Panda

    SO much face. SUCH an awful dress.

    • sienna elm

      Yes – between the colour blocking and the deep V it makes her look fairly thick through the hips and waist….which I’m sure she’s not.

  • Kate Andrews

    Yeah, the dress is too tricky by half. I too am SO EXCITED for OITNB season 2. I’m going to try to spread them out a bit, but I doubt I’ll make it.

  • teensmom99

    Her face is so good here that I think she pulls it all off.

  • gayle

    I seriously did not recognize her in the first picture. The face is good but the dress not so much… I appreciate she tries to make interesting decision it is just unfortunate they rarely seem to work out.

  • Danielle

    What the HELL does Peter Pilotto have against our eyes? .

    • Imasewsure

      Yes he truly sucks… at least lately anyway… maybe he used to be interesting and relevant but now it’s just a slew of odd-ugly!!

    • Introspective

      what does PP have against our eyes? girl, everything. he wants us to openly weep everytime we scroll down on one of his monstrosities.

      • demidaemon

        No, he wants our eyes to bleed and fall out of their sockets. He’s that vengeful.

    • demidaemon

      EVERYTHING, apparently.

  • marlie

    Neck up, she looks beautiful. I don’t mind the top half of the dress, but the whole look goes off the rails from the waist down. And whoever thought that those shoes went with this dress is clearly blind.

    • kimmeister

      I don’t completely hate the dress from the waist down, but I wholeheartedly agree with you about the shoes. I’m not sure I’ve seen those shoes successfully deployed with anything, but this might be their worst use yet.

  • deelup

    It seems to fit the model so differently. On Taylor, the tighter fit is making the elements even weirder. Like the hair though.

  • I think I prefer the prison beige to this. (Oh man so excited for S2.)

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Awkward slit (that’s my new band name), the white panel looks like the designer ran out of sequins and substituted with my dish towel…

    • And their cover single, “Lumpy Bumpy Cut Up”.

    • I would like “awkward slit” to become gangster slang, used in disapproval of ill-advised murders. “Yo, man, that was one awkward slit of that cop. What’re we gonna do with you now?”

    • Deb Oswald

      Seriously, that side panel looks like spanx or even an old fashioned “girdle”! It was a wth moment when I first saw it

  • alyce1213

    WTF is that dress? Really, I don’t understand. I think Pilotto is a bit demented.

  • Mr Pilotto just never ceases to disappoint, does he? This thing is over-designed, and looks badly built in the bargain.

  • leahpapa

    I’m going to say it: Peter Pilotto hates women.

    • SugarSnap108

      And possibly all humans with the power of sight.

      • demidaemon

        He may also be out against the visually impaired, if he ever forced them to touch one of his garments. I’m expecting textural discrepancies to go along with the visual ones.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Did he run out of the sparkly silver fabric?

    • Wink

      Exactly! Picking just ONE of the two fabrics may have saved this dress.

  • Very excited for the return of OITNB! I think of any character, I am most excited to learn more about Suzanne.

    • KinoEye

      I was thinking that when I was rewatching last night. She’s one of my favorites. Random, but I love the way she pronounces “symbiosis” when she’s mopping with Chapman in the bathroom.

  • nannypoo

    Here is proof that a big white panel down one side of your ass will make it look big. Good to know.

  • Anna

    SOOO excited for Season 2. I feel the opposite of that about this dress.

    And clearly so did the person responsible for the sequins. I have a hilarious mental picture of them being at work and all of a sudden going, “Fuck this, it’s Peter Pilotto. It’s going to be FUG anyway, I’m going out for a beer.”

    • demidaemon

      I’m thinking working for PP requires the imbibing of hard liquor at the very least. 🙂

  • MilaXX

    I like this from the waist up although if this dress ended at just at the knee, I’d be okay with it. I don’t mind these Choos, but they don’t go with the dress. However, the face and hair are good enough to give her a small “attagirl”. It’s a step in the right direction, just not a home run.

  • crash1212

    She finally found somebody who likes her to do her hair and makeup.

  • Anna

    This dress is giving me a headache – I just don’t understand it.

    • Lori

      There are so many things going on and none of them are quite right. They’re off in a way that seems deliberate, so I assume he thought he was being clever. Nope.

  • MoHub

    It’s official. Peter Pilotto needs to be banished to a remote island in the middle of the Pacific.

  • KinoEye

    I gasped a little when I saw the thumbnail, thinking she finally nailed it. Then I saw the dress was by Pilotto, and I preemptively cringed. Her head is fantastic. That dress would’ve been so much better as a sequined sheath, but I guess that’s too much to ask from the master of over-complicated fuggery.

    I’ve been binging the first season, too. Cannot wait for Friday! That’ll easily be one of the highlights of my week.

  • Sarah

    AAARGH. I’m going to a Netflix-free zone for my nephew’s graduation this weekend. I shall have to wait until TUESDAY (gasp!) to watch. Pain!
    Her head looks the best I’ve ever seen! Her lower bits look like a bedazzled body cast.

  • EveEve

    Ah Taylor – now that we have seen that she can give great Face, there is no going back – no excuses darling.
    And I am thrilled that you have been given advances of Season 2 of OITNB – and that you’ll be reviewing it (and are feelin’ it!). Alas, it doesn’t seem likely that you’ll be doing OITNB Style blogging. 🙂

  • Mothra

    That is so not flattering. It looks like her left leg is 3x the size of the rest of her. Who thought that was a good idea? Do designers have bets with each other on who can make the most ridiculous thing, and then who they can get to wear it?

    Oh! I smell a new reality show!

  • msdamselfly

    She seems really adorable

  • There was a split second when I was scrolling down on the first picture that I thought it was a jumpsuit, so at least it could have been worse!

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    That head deserved better than that dress.

  • Kristin

    I…. like it. *hangs head in shame*

    Except for the shoes. No no no, shoes. Go home.

  • Miss Disco

    i thought this show was back in July? Coooool, something to fill the gap left by mad men and soon game of thrones.

    Its a shame Orange is the New Black doesn’t have enough fashion for Mad-Style-esque coverage.

    • doodley

      Can you imagine a series of posts on orange jumpsuits vs. khaki jumpsuits?

      • Miss Disco


        Maybe not episode by episode, but perhaps a more general recap of the characters would be interesting. The pre-prison styling, and the ways some are still retaining aspects of it in the prison – Sophia, for example. The red lipstick girl. Alex, Piper.

  • SCK1980

    The beauty of having a world class MUA like Mary Greenwell do your makeup!

  • smayper

    Her head, neck, and shoulders look beautiful. She is standing up straight. She is smiling as if she likes herself. All of this helps distract from the below the waist disaster.

  • NMMagpie

    I did not even recognize her at first. The makeup and hair are outstanding.

    Even though the outfit is not great, this is still progress.

  • lunchcoma

    Beige office shoes with a sparkly cocktail dress? Yuck.

  • Julie Chase

    Pilotto is my new favorite expletive.

    • demidaemon

      I like calling him PP. It’s apropos.

  • that dress weirdly looks like a jumpsuit. that white panel does nothing for it.

  • suzq

    Ugh…celebrity women of the US: PETER PILOTTO IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. However, that coat on the runway is to die. But we don’t wear coats on the runway, do we? No we wear ugly dresses with insets because PETER PILOTTO couldn’t be bothered to use the expensive fabric for the entire dress and because art…and….fashion.

  • littlevase

    Those shoes are bordering on peach.

  • Rhonda Shore

    Well, my weekend is now planned – binging on OITNB.

  • queeniethebold

    i’m so so SO anticipatorily excited about binge-watching OITNB this weekend! Huzzah! And so looking forward to the TLo recaps. Life is good.

  • decormaven

    When the level of dress matches the mastery of hair and makeup shown here, the angels will sing. Can’t wait for S2 and the dear uncles’ recaps!

  • OhSheila

    I don’t mind the dress at all, and YES for some makeup artist finally picking up that she’s blonde Katy Perry

    • kimmeister

      I was just waiting for someone to mention blonde Katy Perry. Thanks for doing the job!

  • mickiemonkey

    That dress is downright reptilian.

  • Kent Roby

    The white fabric and the canvas strap with plastic buckle are just stupid, but, yes, she does look terrific neck up. But, Uncles Dearest, will you please have Netflix delay Orange by another week or so? I’ve been binging on Mad Men from the very beginning the past few weeks, am almost finished with Season 4; I feel I must catch up with it before being committed (pun intended) to the new prison season!

  • That dress is the sartorial equivalent of cheap suburban housing–brick on the front, vinyl siding on the sides and back.

  • prettyinmink

    I don’t know who I hate more, Raf or Peter.

  • French_Swede

    Dagny’s looking very pretty.

  • Jennifer Bober

    Okay, can I just say that THIS is how to do the “neutral shades bring out blue eyes” makeup? Beige and brown make blue eyes pop on the face. So often though we see where makeup artists haven’t taken the person’s skin tones into consideration and they look like clowns. This is refreshingly lovely.

  • cocohall

    Matronly Superhero Gown.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Peter Pilotto. At least he’s consistent.

  • conniemd

    I can’t imagine who would think that white meshy looking fabric would look good with a silver sequin dress. Oh wait, it’s Peter Pilotto who mixes fabrics in an awful way. And that sporting looking half belt at the hips does not belong with silver sequins either. Schizophrenic.

    • Qitkat

      PP: have you got the blindfolds?
      Ass-istant: uh, no, last time you wanted the buyers to wear rubber gloves and panty hose over their faces…
      PP: nonono, this is for the new season, find me 13 blindfolds, NOW!
      Ass-istant: righty-O. (Aside to her sub-assistant): run over to Party City and buy some blindfolds, you know the kind kids wear when playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Chop-chop!!
      Sub-ass-istant: (panting) will these do? They were out of blindfolds, I got neckties at the store next door, Neckties-R-Us.
      PP: Brilliant, even better! Stuff all the buyers in the biggest limo, drive them to the factory, get them inside, spin them each around five times, and let them loose. Back in three hours, no more, I’ve got to brainstorm all night for the fall collection.

      • demidaemon

        HAHAHAHA! Is it unfortunate that i think this is pretty close to the truth?

  • LadyVimes

    Excellent hair/makeup, but what is with that slit?

  • KT

    Totally agree, her face looks gorgeous here. Girl, that IS your makeup. Nicely done. I actually think the dress is an interesting interpretation of the standard sequined cocktail dress, but I agree that the neckline is really unflattering, and I don’t know if it needed that “here’s my vag” slit, either. The shoes are DEFINITELY wrong.

    I’m still working my way through season 1, most of which I’ve really enjoyed, but the past two episodes I watched had some seriously ham-handed writing. I also loathe the flashbacks and find them to be almost entirely unnecessary/underdeveloped, and they really slow down the momentum. I also wish there were a few more characters who weren’t sympathetic/misunderstood, and were just plain bad mother fuckers. But I’m still into it for the most part, and I look forward to seeing where it goes.

    • demidaemon

      I actually really like the flashbacks, at least the non-Piper ones, which get a bit overused. Otherwise, we would never know how Pennsatucky “found” God or why Claudette was in prison to begin with. It really develops the characters.

      Of course, I love the flashback as a technique, so take this with a grain of salt.

  • NinjaCate

    “We’ve screened the first half dozen episodes and we’re FEELIN’ IT, you guys.”


  • Was just thinking that I’ve seen that shoe on Kiernan Shipka and a few other red carpet fashionistas. Move on, indeed!

  • Sunraya

    Horrible dress! But I agree, face is gorgeous! I mean, I knew she was attractive, but had no idea she was that beautiful!

  • Synnamin

    I… wat? Did Pilotto run out of sequin fabric and just decide to tack on some random hospital anti-bacterial curtain fabric to finish it off?

  • Shawn EH

    So pretty, but dress is a complete fail.

  • snarkykitten


  • quiltrx

    For once, PP makes something that isn’t a print to make us all go cross-eyed. And it’s THIS? Groan.

    • demidaemon

      Cross-eyed seems to be his aesthetic. He’s just finding new ways to create that effect.

  • demidaemon

    Looks like there is a post I’ll have to skip until I catch up this weekend!

    Anyways, yeah, Pilotto. Not great, although this is one of his less objectionable dresses. That white fabric he used, though, looks like what they use to line the interior of men’s swim trunks. In other words, PP made another pee pee fabric choice.

  • macwell

    Nice enough ‘face’, but could totally be better. Either she has zero style or zero stylish stylists, cause I have yet to se her in anything that does anything remotely for her.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    Blech to the dress, which looks like someone slapped a great big bandage on a thigh wound before she had to go on stage. The coat the model is wearing looks moderately more interesting (though completely at odds with the dress): must be the first piece by Pilotto I’ve ever looked twice at in anything less than horror.

  • Tessa85

    She looks gorgeous, but I agree that the skirt is just awful. Tricky doesn’t equal stylish!

  • Drunken Housewife

    It makes her one thigh look immense, and she’s not an immense person. The white needs to be tied into the rest of the garment more. One reason it looks better on the model is that the model’s has a white belt. (Another, less easily replicable reason is that the model has a gazelle-like thigh).

  • CNM

    Those shoes are awful. They do not go with this dress in the least. Face is great, though.

  • rhaazz

    She looks better in prison garb. Can’t WAIT for TLO’s review!!

  • RestaurantResolution

    I’m so excited for OITNB!!!!! But I have a problem. This weekend is LA Pride. Do I stay in tomorrow night with the queers on OITNB or go out and party with the queers of LA?

  • Lucia Kmaid

    Maruly Green well can truly work wonders on a face, the lady is a true makeup genious!

  • m3grrl

    Ponytail holder around wrist?

  • Kikishua

    I rarely see a Peter Pilotto that I don’t want to throw on a bonfire. And this is not that Peter Pilotto.

  • Mothra

    that is an awful dress with that weird tackle twill side of beef running down her leg? Who thought that was a good idea? Whomever it was should be shanked. I mean, fired.
