Julia Roberts in Elie Saab on “The Late Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”

Posted on August 01, 2014

The outfit’s a huge nothing and the shoes are absolutely horrible.

We just don’t feel like beating around the bush today. It’s late on a Friday, late in summer. Get outta our way.

Are we wrong? Would embellishing our point have made it easier to swallow somehow? Because this is some shit, no matter how you slice it. Her makeup’s okay but the hair looks like she spent the last week in a pool.

    I had to go look up her age, because I thought that last picture was supposed to be a “Look at me, I’m 52. Suck it!”

    Apparently I was reading too much into it.

  • teensmom99

    Julia, those shoes are for when you haven’t gotten around to hemming a new pair of pants–I problem that any one with those gams shouldn’t have. So just throw out the shoes.

    • FuhUgh

      Holy clodhoppers Batman!

  • Aidan B

    Even if those shoes weren’t hideous they would still be totally wrong for the dress. Why bare your legs up to your ass cheek and then decide your whole foot needs to be demurely laced up??
    Also, a scarecrow somewhere is missing its hair.

    • Qitkat

      Could you safely ride the subway in those shorts?

    • FuhUgh

      And she is showing us her one cellulite dimple. Looks great for her (our) age, but, bwah ha ha, the perfection is cracking. And I’ll thank you not to look at my thighs in retaliation.

  • bassfemme

    “How many of you like my shoes? 10? 7?”

    • alyce1213

      I can’t stop laughing.

    • Thomas

      Are you sure she wasn’t saying, “How many of you like ME? 10? 7?” Lol

    • EveEve

      From the waist down it’s pure “Help! Popeye, save me!”

  • Wink

    A white blouse would look better instead of all black. Not loving the shorts, but her legs look great. She should color her hair, and melt those awful shoes into a kickball.

    • Rhonda Shore

      yes please. I’ve never liked her with that bleached out hair, she looks so much better as a brunette.

  • Constant Reader

    Agreed on the outfit, shoes, and hair, but the thing that will be giving me nightmares later is that World Class Crazy Eye.

    • Thomas

      The crazy eye is strong with this one, but actually I think she’s giving less of it than usual.

  • *chokes*

  • mjude

    I watched her interview on the today show & she looked so pretty. not a fan of this look

  • enuma

    When viewed from the front, those shoes look like pony-play fetish shoes. Did she want her feet to look like hooves?

    • J.W.

      I recall seeing a shoe fetish magazine once…you’re correct.

    • Wendi126

      Scrolls up

  • deelup

    It’s probably because I watched Runaway Bride yesterday and am in some Gere-Roberts fantasy bubble, because I think she looks nice and I even like the shoes.

  • PlethoraofBooks

    Dear Julia,
    Please go back to auburn. Also, please burn those shoes.

  • rkdgal

    She’s on my rational hate list, so NO.

    • The Versatile Chef

      Rational hate list? I have one of these, too. She’s right at the top, along with Tom Cruise.

  • sugarkane105

    But she can take balls to the face like a champ.

  • Anna

    Her hair…this outfit…those shoes, FLAMES…on the sides of my face.

  • In_Stitches

    She’s shrewd because that is a great sit-down look. She’s showin’ off the gams, covering up the good china and the top has a nice drape and drama. When she stands up it all goes to hell.

  • Barbara Affolter

    My high school art teacher had two pairs of shoes: sports sandals and something that was almost identical to this.

    She was not, by the way, an A-list movie star.

    • Sophie

      Interesting choice in shoes, at two ends of the spectrum. One of my english teachers in middle school dressed like a movie star, though always age- and place-appropriate. In the first three months, we didn’t see one outfit repeated twice. And she would never have worn the kind of shoes Julia Roberts is wearing here.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Nothing offends me quite like those shoes. Crap!

  • SuzyQuzey

    Terrible all the way around.

  • Janet B

    Black hole of nothingness. Go ahead and wear the shorts, but we deserve a more interesting top and shoes.

  • crash1212

    Great head. That is all.

  • Sam Smith

    But her legs look great.

  • conniemd

    I refuse to believe that ugly black, shapeless nothing is an Elie Saab design. Say it ain’t so Joe.

  • J.W.

    Why does everyone have to have dark roots? It makes the hair look cheap.

    • 3boysful

      Agree. This has been a trend for a while now, and its time is done. (Altho Julia’s look is not the worst offender I’ve seen by far.)

  • This all smells like desperation.

  • Cynica

    It’s not even a dress–it’s a shorts set. She’s dressed like a toddler in granny stripper shoes.
    Is it almost time for the traditional Sausage Friday Joe Manganiello post? Because I need an eye/brain cleanser.

  • kimmeister

    Poor thing, her torso was attacked by a giant manta ray!

  • MilaXX

    I understand the shorts since she likely wanted to show off her legs. Everything else is wrong. Those shoes are horrible, that’s absolutely the wrong top and the hair looks fried,

  • nannypoo

    She looks awful. She often does. How hard can it be for a thin rich woman to find clothes?

  • PinkyK

    Bless her heart….

    • not_Bridget

      Since Julia is from Georgia, she would know exactly what that means.

  • Nicole

    This outfit is doing exactly what it’s supposed to be doing. It’s drawing all our attention to her fabulous legs and that face. It’s a ninja outfit, not a fashion statement. Still looking for an excuse for the shoes.

  • TerryMH

    If this is what she wears to go on TV, then she doesn’t deserve to go on TV. It’s like she’s got fashion dyslexia. Can she not see what’s staring back at her when she looks into a mirror?

  • Freynika

    Who the fuck wears shorts on TV?

  • Leah Elzinga

    some people rest on pretty, Julia rests everything on those legs and hopes we don’t care about the rest. We do, of course.

  • JulieTy

    I need a palate cleanser after that. WHERE ARE YOU, LUPITA?

  • frannyprof

    I think she shoots for easy & uncomplicated, but she ends up looking awkward and sometimes downright ugly, style-wise.

  • Mothra

    those shoes are to kill for. As in whomever is wearing them should be shot.

  • Skippymom1

    I don’t care how famous you are, or how fabulous you think you are. . .there comes a time in your life when dress shorts are simply unacceptable. Especially when you slap heels on your Great Grandmother’s lace ’em ups.

  • marlie

    Oh, JULIA. Those shoes are hiddy. And your hair needs a hot oil treatment. I want better for you, missy.

  • Ya know, she usually bugs me, but I think she looks great. She’s deploying her best smile, she looks like she’s having fun and she’s letting smile plus legs do the work. I think it’s working. She looks like a star.

  • sk8tfan

    She’s so exhausted from her stint in the coroner’s office (wearing black scrubs out of respect) that she hasn’t had time to get her split ends trimmed.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I was watching this last night, wondering if TLo would post about it. I thought the “Face Ball” sketch was funny. Damn, her nose and lips are floppy!

  • BobStPaul

    Those are some ugly shoes. That’s a dress?

  • Candigirl1968

    At this point we need to dub a celebrity who relentlessly wears crap outfits, marries them with subpar styling, and then seems to think that repeatedly relying upon one particular spectacular physical attribute will somehow blind you to the overall lousiness of their ensembles as “pulling a Julia.”

    • FibonacciSequins

      I’m just not sure if anyone does this besides her.

      • demidaemon

        I nominate Blake Lively, Paula Patton, etc. feel free to add to the list.

  • SophieB210

    OK, it’s not great but this is what constitutes “trying” for J. Ro. Shouldn’t we encourage that? Otherwise she’ll just serve up more po-face and sack dresses.

  • Sophie

    I’d love to know what’s really going on in the pictures whith the fingers. Hate the shoes (I’d probably like them better if there wasn’t a platform) and the shorts and the hair.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Those shoes are laughable. What was she thinking? Her hair is a hot, brittle, dried out mess.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    wow, I just watched this on the DVR and thought ‘horrible, I wonder what T’lo would say? but naw…they won’t see this….its not a R/C..’ and low and behold! Uncles T and Lo *DID* see it! and hated it too…life is wonderful…(and what moron decided to play ‘lets throw big plastic balls at one of the most bankable faces in hollywood?? couldn’t we have played that with…..Ernest Borgnine or someone?

  • boweryboy

    This bad. This is really, really bad.

  • demidaemon

    Well, that’s a pretty hideous outfit. Thanks.

  • Man Dala

    Face looks great, all the rest is bad.

  • yllas

    When they get to a certain age and the gray starts coming in, the first impulse is to go bleached yellow blonde. Even brunettes with staring black eyes, must have the yellow mop. With all her money, she could have the auburn with subtle highlights.

  • LibKat

    Honey, it’s called conditioner. With your income, you should invest in vats.

  • JaymeKay

    Julia is wearing her husband’s shirt, belted, and a SKORT, paired with club footed nun shoes. Hair by Clorox.

  • Jimmack

    Umm…when did Julia get Sarah Jessica Parker’s bad hair? OH well, can we talk about how cute Jimmy Fallon is?

  • Call me Bee

    Yeah–she looked a little childish. And her hair bugged me big time–almost more than the hoof shoes. But I watched this and she was actually charming and interesting to listen to. Unlike some other ladystars who can’t put a sentence together…..

  • Laylalola

    I hate when she’s blonde.

    Jealousy looks bad on you. Her hair was to die for. What color is your hair? Personally I adore her shoes but that is a matter of taste. You said it was late and I guess your palette was tired.

  • DeTrop

    What is with these heavy looking shoes/boots for summer? The salon I go to has all these pretty young girls, tattooed to the max, wearing the cutest clothes and these heavy clodhoppers. I don’t get it. As for Julia R herself, I like her. I love her with her dark hair and highlights. This not so much.

  • mousetomato

    The shoes would be terrif, if she were auditioning for Mary Poppins.

    We may have lost Elaine Stritch, but her style lives on.

  • annmartina

    She’s made the realization that America now knows she’s no sweetheart

  • Tuneful54

    Everything is unbecoming here, including what appears to be desperation.
