Sarah Paulson in Lela Rose at EW’s 2014 Comic-Con Celebration

Posted on July 28, 2014

Sometimes, all that’s left for a bitchy blogger to say is “Oh, COME ON. Really, (celebrity name here)? REALLY?!?”

Except she looks so royally pissed off at the moment that we wouldn’t dream of risking the vicious face-slapping to come. We don’t know if said annoyance is directed at her stupid stylist with her stupid ideas and stupid FACE, or whether she’s simply in excruciating pain because the weight of her body is forcing each of her feet through a tiny little hole at the end of each shoe. Look at the eyes. That is PAINRAGE. It is never a good idea to fuck with a lady when she’s going through a bout of shoe-based PAINRAGE.

Jesus, honey. Go and sit down. Put a towel or something under you if you can, but go and sit down.

    • Anna

      I DO NOT want to run into her or Jada Pinkett-Smith at any time.

      ETA: Also, why are designers so determined to turn plant holders into outfits?

      • demidaemon

        Questions without logical answers. A sad fate for the visually unimpaired.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I think the color of the top looks lovely on her.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I agree and I think that’s literally the only positive thing I could say about this outfit.

      • J. Preposterice

        like. that top, skinny jeans, and yellow converse. THERE WAS THAT SO HARD??? sigh.

    • marlie

      Um, so I like the shoes that the model has on. And I’m afraid to say anything else.

      • Bernd

        Heels with bottle-opener included? Sarah’s are way too fussy for the simplicity of the outfit

        • marlie

          The bottle-opener is what makes them interesting. :) But yes, Sarah’s are too fussy and too prissy (for lack of a better word) for the rest of her outfit.

      • Kitten Mittons

        I really like the model’s shoes, too. Best part of the outfit.

      • Rhonda Shore

        This is a venue where anyone can get away with army boots or chuck taylors. There is no need for this.

    • deelup

      Trim the macrame off the skirt and she’d look great.

      • FibonacciSequins

        I think the shirt is too short and boxy for her. But it’s not as bad as the skirt, which is still better than the shoes. Her poor feet. No wonder she’s not smiling.

    • Alicia

      PAINRAGE. There should be an awareness day. What colour are the ribbons?

      • Joanna

        Black, of course.

      • Gatto Nero


    • FibonacciSequins

      Good Lord. This could be used as a dictionary illustration of “scrolldown fug”.

    • pocketcopter

      Am I alone in thinking that skirt could theoretically be paired with a more attractive top and not look like a total bummer?

      Could the whole outfit work on another person? I feel like her dourness in this series of photos is making it hard to objectively judge. Also that clutch is no good.

      • Boulderista

        The outfit-with-different-shoes could work on another person … a much younger, less dour person. This top with skinny white or black (both not both) might work on her. This skirt with a different top might work on her (though the under-skirt is a tad short for her proportionately). As is, it’s an O-U-T.

    • GeoDiva

      She is such a pretty lady, but has the worst taste in clothes. She needs a new stylist that will make her smile. It is so obvious that she is never comfortable in what she is wearing.

      • demidaemon

        Exactly my thoughts, although I am tempted to believe that the stylist is fictional.

    • julnyes

      That is a lot of blush.

    • Lori

      She always looks so terrible, and there’s no good reason for it.

    • Mona_Visa

      From the thumbnail I got Kristen Wiig in a hospital gown.

    • crash1212

      SO awful. That top is kinda cute and would look perfectly fine with some skinny jeans or black cigarette pants. Those shoes need to be burned.

    • Danielle

      Man, she didn’t even try to look like she hasn’t been sucking on lemons, did she? Her bitchface is strong.

      • Thomas

        I think she looks like she smelled a fart in that first pic.

    • Gatto Nero

      Such a pretty woman. So many bad clothing choices.

    • Kitten Mittons

      So, I bought a pair of tights that look just like that recently. They even have solid bike shorts built in to them, just like Sarah’s skirt, and they stop right at my knees, just like Sarah’s skirt.

      But I bought mine for $1.95 to wear to the Red Dress Run, as part of a costume. That’s my excuse.


      • formerlyAnon

        I am SO glad you explained the tights’ purpose.

        I was worried.

        • Kitten Mittons

          That’s why the bitter kittens are such good people. You SHOULD be worried about a statement like that, by all rights. Thus my need to qualify the statement.

          I actually tried them on with the red dress today (which is so short it doesn’t cover the necessary bits, thus the need for tights with built in bike shorts) and felt utterly ridiculous. Which means I’ll fit right in for said event. Still….I judge myself.

          • demidaemon

            This shows that your sanity is still intact and that your eyes are in working order. It’s all good.

            • Kitten Mittons


    • MilaXX

      She looks pissed that her stylist forced her feet into shoes too small. Damn girl, take a Valium and put some flats on. Better yet, go find some fuzzy slippers.

      • Gatto Nero

        Yet there’s a gap at the back of the shoe. And still her feet look jammed in. They are just ill-fitting, and her poor footsies look like they’re screaming.

        • MilaXX

          They are probably too small in the sense that she either needs a wider width or the toe box is simply to narrow for her even foot. For example says Sarah is a 7.5 medium width, If the shoe is a 9 narrow this is what you get.

          • kimmeister

            Exactly. As a wide-footed woman, I definitely recognize when a shoe is too narrow for the foot.

      • formerlyAnon

        Photos like this simply reinforce that even if I were genetically gifted in the appearance category, had some talent that allowed me to capitalize on those genetic gifts, AND had the clenched-jaw drive to reach red carpet status, I would SUCK SO MUCH at this. Maggie Gyllenhaal would put me in the shade. I’d be the woman known – for two weeks – as the one on the red carpet barefoot, who’d fired three stylists in a week, who walked in a horrid mish mash of her own clothing – which actually fit – and the designer’s.

        After those two weeks, I’d be known as the one who couldn’t get anyone to give her loaner clothes for any reason.

        • demidaemon

          You know, this kind of makes me wish you were a celeb, because not only would you make for great PR entertainment, it would just be generally awesome.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Is there some new version of noodling where, instead of you being the fishhook, you are the fish net?

    • random_poster

      The background picture of Bette Davis with graffiti on her face is the best thing in these pictures.

    • Shelby

      Jesus, I’m having sympathy feet pain.

    • smayper

      The phrase ” mesh ensemble” should serve as a wRning

    • aquamarine17

      with her hair down at that length, she probably needs to carefully choose the neckline of whatever she is wearing. her hair is not flattering. if she is growing it out, it would look better up.

    • Freynika

      I actually don’t mind it because it’s not a lacey looking lace, more of an exaggerated eyelet. Honestly, I’m just happy not to see underwewar under the skirt. It’s sad how much my standards have fallen these days. But yeah, that’s definitely an epic bitchface on the scale of January Jones.

    • Yoshio

      The Uncles have shared many of the fashion pitfalls that the mighty (Ms. Blanchett) and not-so-mighty (see above, Jada PS, Evangline L. et al) have fallen into at Comic-Con. The only saving grace has been the delightful photos of the gentlemen stars. Nary a one of them has wallowed as deeply as the lady stars. I blame stylists..

    • nannypoo

      All that foot pain for ugly shoes. Why would she do that to herself?

    • ashtangajunkie

      This is the first time I’ve seen her on a red carpet that I don’t have the over-whelming urge to dye and restyle her hair.

    • Mr. J.

      Girl, go have a drink and forget about the whole thing….your HEALTH is more important.

    • Imasewsure

      Get this angry awkwardly dressed B a pair of flip flops and a huge glass of any alcohol STAT. She needs to wind the F down right away… oh and eh hem… you makeup sucks and your outfit is ugly (running fast now!!)

    • conniemd

      Clearly the outfit is not meant to be worn, but used in an editorial photo shoot. The model looks pretty good to me (ducks). Stylists need to recognize the difference between editorial and wearable.

      • formerlyAnon

        I agree about the model. (That took work.)

      • saintebeuve

        I agree on the editorial shot with the model but that photo on the wall behind her will haunt me.

      • demidaemon

        To be fair, it being in profile helps the outfit greatly. Unfortunately, Ms. Paulson is totally denied that option.

    • jeaniemarie

      So it’s not ok to take off those shoes and carry them on the RC? I would applaud any woman that did!

    • Kelly

      Poor thing, her feet are positively crammed into those shoes. You’d think she was trying on the glass slipper or something. And the shoes have BOWS on them, argh. With some other skirt, the top might be. . .interesting, but the skirt is so painfully unattractive on her (and just in general) that I just feel sorry for her.


      Her poor piggies!

    • roche

      She’s such a good actress. She doesn’t deserve an outfit as bad as this.

    • alliekat9090

      Could someone explain this woman’s face to me? She looks like a Madam Alexander doll.

    • ktr33

      This is a picture of misery.

    • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

      This chick scares the shit outta me.

    • evave2

      To quote Nina Garcia, WTF?

    • Kate Andrews

      Ok, she is ahead of Lindsay Lohan in the fashion victim race. Wow.

    • demidaemon

      *shakes head*

      I feel so bad for her because she really is cute and bubbly, but, God, this woman has negative fashion capabilities. I’m starting to wonder if a stylist is ever involved in her sartorial choices.

    • HeisenbergHattie

      The fashion planets were completely unaligned for her, this day.

    • PinkyK

      Good God! No! Just NOOOO!

    • mrspotts66

      she looks pissed off because her feet are being squished into tinier feet by those shoes.
      and because she’s wearing that thing she’s wearing.

    • Kent Roby

      “EW”, indeed.

    • Trishington

      Yarg! Just no.

    • Kristi Puckett Carrillo

      $10 says she has a migraine.
