Friday Leftovers

Posted on August 22, 2014

Darlings, welcome to our inaugural Friday Leftovers post. We figured we’d do this sort of thing from now on because, at the end of every week, we have a pile of looks that didn’t quite rate their own posts, but seemed to deserve more than to relegated to the opinionless world of our whiteboard posts.

So here we go, quick n’ dirty-style. Hit it, leftovers:


Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Michelle Dockery attends Audi’s Celebration of Emmys Week 2014 at Cecconi’s Restaurant in Los Angeles in a Zac Posen dress.

Hair looks kinda bad but everything else is working like gangbusters love the color. And the fit is doing pretty great things for her. The floral shoes are a perfect grace note to the look.


Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (2)Laverne Cox attends the Delta OPEN Mic event in New York City.

It’s the same ol’ silhouette, but we suppose we can’t blame a girl for sticking with a look. She probably wouldn’t look as good in boxy or flowy styles. We’re happy to see her in a print. And her shoes are nicely on point.



Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (3)Ashley Greene attends the 2014 Heineken US Open Kick-Off Party in New York City in Preen.


It’s a “my sister’s wedding” kind of dress, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s elegant and pretty without being over the top. The pink clutch bugs and the shoes look painful as hell.



Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (4)Julie Bowen attends Audi Celebrates Emmys’ Week 2014 at Cecconi’s Restaurant in Los Angeles in an Hervé Léger dress.

Great color; love the beading. The shoes are an abomination and reek of Satan.


Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (5)Marisa Tomei attends screening “Love is Strange” at Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City.

A look that says “I’m having a manic episode and wearing shirts under my dresses.” Go home and start over, Marisa.



Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (6)Rita Ora at the launch of the new DKNY MYNY fragrance at Madison Square Park in New York City in a DKNY ensemble.


Leather robot girl. We love the skirt (and the sneakers paired with it), but the top looks too wrinkly to be called good.



Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (7)Uzo Aduba attends the Delta OPEN Mic event in New York City.

Parent-teacher night.

Those are some kickass jeans, though. They fit her perfectly through the waist and hips, hitting exactly where it should. Really, she only needs to upgrade that sad top to bring this one up to code. T Lo code.


Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (8)Julianne Hough attends the 2014 Heineken US Open Kick-Off Party in New York City in Monique Lhuillier.

Drunk. Forgot her dress.



Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-August-22-2014-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (9)Tara Reid attends the Premiere of The Asylum & Fathom Events’ “Sharknado 2: The Second One” in Los Angeles.


Drunk. Remembered her dress. Unfortunately.

  • Glam Dixie

    Uncles, I agree about everything here except Rita Ora, she looks beyond terrible.

    • Thomas

      And I will never accept sneakers with a dress at an event like that, no matter how cool they are.

    • Sarah

      Unless she’s a particularly stylish marathon finisher, in which case, Congrats Rita! Here’s your space blanket! Recuperate and return in something more stylish, please.

      • Bakerlooline

        And she fashioned the dress out of the space blanket, apparently.

  • carlatheviking

    LOVED the color on Michelle Dockery! That lipstick is perfect too. No real comment on the rest, except for one question: Is EVERYONE’S hairstylist on vacation except for Julie Bowen’s??

    • largishbearishAtlish

      I dunno, Julie Bowens almost-pin curls are pushing it (but love the beading on her)

      • fiestyfashionfem

        Those are called “curling iron curls.” My go to look in 1978.

  • Jessie Melcher Brown

    Why is Tara’s face soo shiny?

    • hughman

      Because she is sealed in Saran Wrap like an egg salad sandwich.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Hughman does it again. *snort*

    • kerryev

      I was trying so hard to figure that out that I actually missed that bodice atrocity on the first pass.

  • Jennnni

    Marisa looks like she’s trying to smuggle a winter coat into the event.

  • hughman

    Half-way down I suddenly realized they weren’t all at the same event. Whew! I could not understand why Dockery’s folded napkin of a dress was at the same venue as Rita Ora’s baked potato.

    • Djwilke

      Yes! I saw folded cloth napkin, too. The color makes it even more so. I did like the shoes, though.

    • sienna elm

      I admire her for wearing that ‘napkin dress’ mostly because it would drive me to distraction (I suspect) trying to keep the point in the center of my body ~

    • largishbearishAtlish

      PR make a dress from a napkin challenge? (better yet…lock them in a Howard Johnson’s lobby (circa 1984 (just for a random year) and make outfits out of THAT..) (of course they would have the HJ logo everywhere..)

  • Boulderista

    Marisa looks like she pulled a dress left over from the late 80s or early 90s out of the way back of her closet

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Code.T Lo Code.

    Think of it murmured by Sean Connery, and you have it all.

  • FibonacciSequins

    What a nice way to end the week! Love Uzo’s jeans. Marisa and Tara both desperately need stylists. Or better stylists.

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      Do we know what brand jeans they are?

    • demidaemon

      At this point, I’m not even sure a stylist could help Tara.

  • jen

    Love this new feature! Lady Mary looks fab!

  • Jennifer Bober

    I saw a pic of Tara Reid in that “dress” and thought, “well, that’s a designer who doesn’t know SHIT about how fabric works and she’s an idiot for wearing it.”

    • sienna elm

      She looks like she’s wearing two skirts – the long one along with the coordinating mini upside-down as a top!!

    • MaryMcClelland

      Well when you’re an F Lister, I imagine you’re severely limited in terms of where you can get a free dress. In this case, I think Walmart donated some table cloths from the clearance rack to a PR reject (like didn’t make it on the show reject) and he had 5 hours to make a dress befitting of a former C-lister who is down on her luck and depending on her boobies to hold her up.

      • demidaemon

        F lister indeed.

      • Judih1


      • largishbearishAtlish

        Ooooh another PR challenge….’make a dress from whatever Tara Reid could salvage from the coat room…(and she can keep the ‘candy’ she finds in the pockets!)

  • Tara Reid’s dress is a Kristine original.

    Love the Friday Judgement idea btw! Have a lovely weekend!

    • FibonacciSequins

      Ha! Was just going to make that comparison to Kristine’s dress.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        Me too!

  • MilaXX

    Julie Bowen would have had a homerun if she was wearing a better shoe.

    • MaryMcClelland

      I don’t mind the shape/style of the shoe but the straps are too thick and the color is like disco ace bandage.

  • Anna

    Rita Ora is Titanium!
    Julianne Hough: I’m pretty sure “Tennis Whites” excludes lingerie though.
    Tara Reid is Pepto Bismol with cleavage and a giant slit (and now I have nausea and indigestion).
    Love Lady Mary from the neck down.
    I will find a way to use, “The shoes are an abomination and reek of Satan,” in a conversation this weekend!

    • decormaven

      Those shoes were tragic. Our uncles called it on the nose.

      • Anna

        I’m starting to think she just has terrible taste in footwear, her shoe choices always seem to be particularly foul.

    • demidaemon

      Man, that Pepto Bismol reference got their stupid jingle stuck in my head.

      • Anna

        Sorry! Head-to-toe pink in approximately that hue always reminds me of it. And her particular get-up makes it a requirment after viewing.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Say what you will about Zac Posen, but I instantly recognized the first dress as is

    • evave2

      I like the dress (surprise me but I fear there are butt wings if she turns around) but I think it looks tight around her tummy.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Oh Tara Reid. Something about her makes me so sad

  • PinkyK

    Wasn’t Tara Reid’s dress in red and aufed on Project Runway last night?

  • Akemi

    As a woman who has been battling a super-oily skin her entire life, I feel like I would constantly have a shiny face on the RC. That being said, what in god’s name is happening to Tara Reid’s face.

    • KendraMR

      I have the same problem. If I were a celebrity, I would insist that my publicist/assistant/friend/flunky to always have at minimum a six pack of applicator pads in order to blot away oil.

    • Glam Dixie

      I cannot even keep makeup on for more than a couple of hours before it’s all floated off of my skin and blotted away. I feel your pain.

    • Sarah

      She is clearly covered in Crisco.

    • KinoEye

      I, too, battle the oil slick on a daily basis. But I’d like to think it would be less of an issue if I had a team of professionals dedicated to making me look my best. Yeesh.

  • J.W.

    I like Ms. Dockery’s look…even the straggly hair doesn’t bother me. That green color is killer bee on brunettes. Love the shoes.

  • KendraMR

    I love this! Side note: Marisa Tomei will be FIFTY in December. Girl hasn’t aged since “My Cousin Vinny”.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Guess her biological clock wasn’t ticking as fast as she thought.

      • RL McGruder

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Excellent shade.

  • MissRiss65

    Laverne’s hair: stop. No. Seriously.

    • kimmeister

      It’s horrific, possibly the worst I’ve ever seen it.

  • Qitkat

    ‘Premiere of the ASYLUM & Fathom Events Sharknado 2′
    It really takes a special kind of insanity and dubious talent to come up with an event which is named this.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      To be followed by: Sharknado 3: Marine Asylum

      • Qitkat

        Head over to the Lounge where I just couldn’t resist continuing this.

    • KinoEye

      Haha! Asylum is actually the name of a production company that churns out these B movies like they’re going out of style. The boyfriend and I watched one the other night out of morbid curiosity — AIRPLANE VS. VOLCANO. They spelled the title in all caps, apparently to emphasize the epic rivalry of two inanimate objects. I was really rooting for the volcanoes, but alas, we fell asleep before the ending. The people on the plane had the dimensions and intelligence of a sheet of paper — losing them in a random circle of volcanoes (which just burst out of the Pacific Ocean at the beginning of the movie, because that’s how tectonic plates work) would have been a mercy.

  • jonnyf8

    Why does Juilanne Hough have such shitty hair?

    • alyce1213

      Consistently shitty, from one bad style to another. And there’s nothing wrong with her hair, she just has no clue.

      • demidaemon

        She hasn’t even changed it in what? Almost two years? She clearly hasn’t figured out that she is neither a bob nor pixie kind of girl.

  • Kathofel

    I have to disagree on Rita Ora, I hate those shoes! Pairing those sneakers that look like running shoes with regular or – God forbid! – fancy clothes is one of my biggest fashion pet peeves, and I wish that trend would just die already.

    Also, am I the only one seeing that awkward bump that dress is giving Michelle Dockery on her stomach?

  • sagecreek

    Does Julie Bowen have a picture in her attic? Girl don’t age.

    • cowper

      Bonus points for Dorian Grey reference!

  • evave2

    Doesn’t the top of Ashley Greene’s dress look like the top that sent Christine home on Project Runway yesterday.

    I think Laverne Cox has the “V for Victory” over the naughty bits that sent Hernan home on Project Runway last week.

    Were both those designs somehow “on point” in the fashion world? Ay caramba!

  • decormaven

    Thanking the heavens I’ve got a glass of wine now. Scary stuff. Love isn’t the only thing that’s strange- Marisa T’s outfit defies description.

  • gotgreyhound

    I actually love how Marisa Tomei looks! The dress is kind of edgy, and I like her casual hair and makeup. Do you realize how old this woman is?? A lot of the “she doesn’t age!” actresses whom we praise are so carefully preserved and pampered and made up to within an inch of their lives. But Marisa Tomei looks like the real deal – relaxed and comfortable in her own skin and completely gorgeous! She’s going to be 50 in December, and I’d rather look like her than a whole slew of primped and plastic women decades younger than her!

    • alyce1213

      I love the way she looks too. I’m not sure I fully understand what she’s wearing, I need a better look, but overall, there’s no denying she looks beautiful. Her face and body are amazing.

    • FibonacciSequins

      She looks absolutely beautiful. I would just like to rip that schmatte off her and put in something more flattering.

    • what not

      I love the idea of her dress, and the underlay part, but not the 90s sleeveless sweater dress on top. Switch it out for a different color and fabric and it’d be right up my alley.

    • sundaynightaddict

      I’m the opposite of everybody else – I love the sweater and think it would have been really cute with a skinny pant underneath and a closed toe stiletto.

    • Paige

      I’d like to give this more than one thumbs up. She looks better than everyone else BECAUSE she’s nearly fifty and is her own damn self with her own damn 49-year-old face. This is what 49 looks like!

  • CB

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: WRANGLE THAT WIG, LAVERNE.

  • DaveinAlamitosBeach

    I think T.Lo were being exceedingly diplomatic while discussing most of these looks.

    Is Tara Reid’s outfit just “designed” to show that she finally got her boobs fixed?

    • FibonacciSequins

      I was wondering the same. She should never show them off. It just reminds us of what they used to look like.

  • alyce1213

    I’d love to see Laverne Cox move forward in her fashion already, maybe wean from tight and short to just tight, for example. I think she’d look good in the two dresses below her — the big flowered Preen and the coral Léger. They’re both tight and body con, but not short. Baby steps, please.

    • MaryMcClelland

      Yes, she’s going the Heidi or Lea Michelle route a little too often: short, tight, and shiny!

  • mickiemonkey

    Laverne’s got a vajay vajay shrine.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    I can’t see Tara Reid anywhere without thinking of Kaynebow gasping, “OMG we get to design a look for someone elegant and classy! I hope it’s Tara Reid!”

  • Columbinia

    Love the compilation of drive-by judging.

    Re: Julianne Hough: how did such a young, pretty woman make herself look so worn out?

  • MaryMcClelland

    WTH is Julianne Hough doing? She’s wearing the underpinnings of a bridal gown (or Dita’s lingerie) with Ladies Who Lunch shoes to an event sponsored by Heineken! Seriously – it is so inappropriate; overly serious and way too formal. Not to mention the white lace is about four decades too old for her. Plus PLUS it’s unflattering as hell! And where are the accessories And it looks like she used a cut in half tennis ball to shape her hair. She has such a fashion identity crisis. I don’t understand why (or how) she is famous, but I doubly don’t understand what the hell she is thinking when she gets dressed! /Rant over. She’s on my irrational hate list.

  • anyalama

    Marisa Tomei’s outfit makes me think of skants and makes me miss regretsy.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I miss Regretsy too…so much.

    • kittentoes


  • SuzyQuzey

    All of these are TERRIBLE except for Ashley Greene, which is barely passable. Barely.

    • ktr33

      agree. Greene seems to be channeling Tina Fey, except she’s no Tine Fey.

  • GeoDiva

    Please continue this feature… too much fun!

  • frannyprof

    Did Cynthia design Tara’s dress? Where did she come from all of a sudden? It’s like she was conjured up by a BK’s comment earlier this week…

  • Judy_J

    Tara Reid’s dress: now I know where Kristine got the idea for her design on lady night’s PR.

  • CatLady

    I bet everyone on the international space station can see that oily shine beaming off Tara Reid’s face.

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    Didn’t someone get eliminated from Project Runway for making Tara Reid’s dress?

  • EEKstl

    Squeee! Love this post! Now TGIF will have deeper meaning…

  • Linda Leeson

    Is Tara wearing the dress that got sent home on Project runway?

    • Sarah

      It does look much like Christine’s devil-horns red job. In addition, it appears her face is covered with iridescent glow-in-the- dark makeup. Or Vaseline…either way, unfortunate.

  • I like this new feature! A bit of drive-by bitchery to finish a week.

  • Abigail Chang

    I like this feature! Poor Tara Reid – her boobs are being held up by fabric windshield wipers that didn’t even give her face a once-over.

  • musi_

    oh no, Tara…

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    “Friday Judgment” Day — YES!! More TLo to start of my weekend right. I love you, Uncles.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Tara Reid still exists?? who knew!

  • grumpbump

    I am so happy to hear about this new rundown feature. I live for your rundowns. I love the scroll and snark.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I’m tilting my laptop screen every which way but Michelle Dockery’s dress still looks to be the same drab green that Korinna picked twice on PR.

  • ktr33

    EXCELLENT new Friday feature. I kind of love Marisa for being a regularly working actress my age who hasn’t turned herself inside out to look/be younger, but is still hot. Just not in this pic. Mess, but not a hot mess.

  • ktr33

    Like the top of the Dockery Dress, but the skirt seems badly made — big visible hem.

  • adnama79

    Someone just got kicked off Project Runway for making essentially what Tara Reid is wearing… The dress is flying away from her boobs.

  • LilyVanessi

    Now we have TWO things to look forward to. Three if you count TLounge.

  • MM4321

    Look – Tara Reid wearing the dress that got Kristine kicked off Project Runway this week!

  • MM4321

    Julie Bowen is so cute naturally that she needs to put down that botox needle.

    Julianne Hough is too cute to be wearing that hair, ever.

  • Coleslaw McGraw

    I dunno, you guys. Michelle looks pretty poochie in that dress.

  • greenwich_matron

    It’s interesting to compare this to the “Heidi’s got taste” challenge on PR this week. Pretty much everything here is better than the blah-sphemy that made up this week’s runway show.

  • LibKat

    Gotta disagree about Michelle Dockery. Hair is sad, the lip color clashes with the green of the dress and the fit of the dress is pretty sad. Flat boobs and pouchy tummy do not make a good look.

  • PeaceBang

    I was getting picky about Michelle Dockery’s folded napkin neckline that I hate, but then I started scrolling and I had to go back and heap praises on her, ’cause everyone else looks pretty awful by comparison. Marisa Tomei and I have the same difficult hair and it perversely cheers me that hers so often looks as hopeless as mine.

  • WaterGhost

    Marisa Tomei isn’t wearing her skirt under her dress because she’s having a hilarious manic episode due to some sort of hilarious bipolar disorder. She’s wearing her skirt under her dress because she’s an evil person with brain cancer, as people with brain cancer are wont to be.

    • DuBey2

      Not sure I understood your 2nd sentence, but I feel offended, as a dear friend (who was known for kindness, serving, and laughing) has just died from brain cancer. Not a laughing matter to me.

      • WaterGhost

        I agree, brain cancer isn’t a laughing matter. My own father died too early from cancer (although not from brain cancer).

  • ErmengardeGreen

    Yay wrapups! Julie Bowen is awfully smirky.

  • tara’s face looks like a headlight on a car.

  • Tara Reid’s dress is sad, and exactly the kind that gets you Auf’ed from Project Runway.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    Love this post – keep it coming, guys!

  • dmkava

    Now that’s what you call “Emerald Green” Korina, or maybe not-but it’s closer than the drab shade Korina picked

  • Wink

    Tara Reid’s “dress” is god-awul, and her face is shining like a new penny. But kudos to her for pulling it together (I think) after an extended period of floundering.

  • E. D.

    Powder, Tara. Powder.

  • Beto

    Sorry uncles, Rita Ora is a total disaster. From head to toe.

  • amanda lynn

    didn’t we see someone kicked offa project runway for tara’s top?
