  • Michele

    Can’t stand her character on Scandal, don’t like her shoes, but I love the dress!

    • Man Dala

      I tend to agree, her character was butchered in the last season.

      • Kent Roby

        Her character was almost literally butchered by Huck.

        • Man Dala

          Yes, that too.

  • Glam Dixie

    I don’t know why I get such a maternal type thrill at seeing all of Christian’s success, but I do think this may be a case of GTNYD. It’s fighting with the shoes and it looks so much better on the model. Also, hairbrush. Look into it.

    • Kitten Mittons

      I do, too. I love seeing most of the PR people get red carpet love, but especially him. All other nitpicks are on point as well.

  • barbarienne

    Would have looked better in her correct size. I realize clothes are all on loan, but it bugs how often the ladycelebs are stuffed into outfits sized for models.

    Though honestly, that pink doesn’t go well with her skin tone. Swing and a miss, here.

  • The only good thing here is the dress. Her hair is awful and the shoes and the clutch don’t go with the dress.

    • Introspective

      ooh yes, that hair is fug too. very i just washed my hair before leaving the gym…

      • RebeccaKW

        I thought it was a (bad) wig when I first saw the images

  • marlie

    Such a pretty dress, but there’s something a little off about the fit on Katie (who?). And the shoes are SO wrong for this look. She could also use some help in the hair and makeup department.

    • evave2

      Gosh I love the shoes so much I really can’t tell if they go with the dress. I also think hair and makeup have the “fucked in the limo” look.

      But the dress, the dress, looks so good on a non-model-type body and I love it.

  • bananafish

    If this fit her properly and was paired with a better shoe and hairstyle it would be fine for a polo match or bridal shower. But this is a swanky part, no? Kind of a yawn.

  • Shoes are way to heavy for that frock.

  • Introspective

    shes not tall enough for this dress and the shoes are horrific.

    if she was the height of the model so the hem skimmed her knee (or if she was allowed to properly tailor/hem the thing) and she paired it with delightful shoes (again see: the model) then we’d have a homerun here…

  • Gatto Nero

    The dress is cute and venue appropriate. The hem should come up a skosh.
    The diagonal lines of the shoe complement the print on the dress, but a less heavy shoe (that doesn’t choke her ankles and shorten her legs) would work better.

    • MoHub

      That shoe gives her stumpy legs. It’s sort of a scrolldown needle scratch for me.

  • Evil Edie

    This is terrible! She looks like she is being eaten by a birthday cake!

    Actually I have no idea. My browser won’t finish loading the picture.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Hate the shoes and hair but the dress is great.

  • Sarah

    The dress is too tight up top. Those shoes are awful AND unseasonable. I’d like a white or maybe silver sandal, here. Also, her hair looks like my sister’s. My sister, a forty six year old mother of three who works at the Hallmark store.

  • The picture isn’t showing for me 🙁 – wonder why?

    • stellamaris73

      Me, neither. 🙁

    • LJCdoc

      It was’t for me either, then I googled “katie lowes pre-emmy christian siriano” and TLo was the first thing that came up, and the link worked. Weirdness, but you might try it.

      • That cludge didn’t work for me, but now here she is in chevron glory. I like it. But the shoes are too matchy, in design if not colour.

  • MilaXX

    Not a bad look. The bodice is a hair too tight, but overall the Scandal ladies cleaned up well.

  • I looooooove the dress. Someone wore it to the VMAs too!

  • moppet

    I like the dress a lot (Almost September = dress like it’s summer! for lady celebs) but those shoes are WAY too on point. And I’m not sure it’s the best dress for HER, though I like it as a concept.

    I hate hate HATE what has been done with her character on Scandal. I’m putting all the blame on the writers/producers, though; I think all the actors are doing the best they can but that show has gone off the rails.

  • alyce1213

    Beautiful dress, but a bit too tight on the top (boob squish, overhang). I see why these shoes were chosen, they work well with the diagonals on the dress, but they make her legs look short.

  • Imasewsure

    Don’t really like the dress and hate the shoes…

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Shoes aren’t working because they’re recreating the stripe effect on her feet. Needs better shoes, but she looks good otherwise. I also didn’t super love her character on Scandal, but she’s growing on me.

  • I love that dress, but why would you wear those shoes with it? Seriously, wtf?

    • Garcia Loca

      Or with anything, for that matter?

  • Alex Palombo

    She had me until the shoes. The dress is great though.

  • crash1212

    I love those shoes, but not with this dress. It’s one of those times where I wish she’d duplicated the model look, cuz those shoes are perfect. Cute dress.

  • Sam Smith

    Love the dress, love Christian, but dress seems odd choice for this venue and it really doesn’t seem to fit her properly. Also, shoes are terrible.

  • throwaneyeonthis

    I like the dress very much but I would never have guessed this is by Christian Siriano. It is so mainstream, Michael by Michael Kors maybe.

  • stellavision

    I can’t with all the matchy. Her lips match the pink in the dress; the thickness of the shoe segments (I don’t know what else to call them, they’re too thick for “straps”) match the thickness of the stripes. I think this dress could have worked nicely if styled better.

  • AndieJay

    This looks like the hard Christmas candy left over in the bowl because no one knows what flavor it is.

  • somebody blonde

    Great dress, terrible styling. The shoes are hideous, the hair looks like she just got out of the shower, and her makeup is underwhelming. Cute clutch though.

    • PinkyK

      I completely agree.

  • PastryGoddess

    why do those shoes exist? Is God mad at us?


  • Milos Mom

    Thanks for proving that weird tuck under the arm is suppose to be there (???).

  • Mr. J.

    Crazy about those colors.

  • Man Dala

    Cute dress, horrible shoes.

  • lilibetp

    Don’t like the shoes, but adore the dress.

  • demidaemon

    Those shoes are so wrong for this dress.

  • boweryboy

    The dress itself is cute but the shoe are a bit too en pointe, literally. They look like ballet shoes.
