Naya Rivera in Rebecca Minkoff in Beverly Hills

Posted on August 14, 2014

Darlings, everyone simmer down for a second so we can get a read. There’s a disturbance in the fashion force. Something new is happening on the sidewalks of fame. We sense a sudden and unexpected stepping up of game.

Ah. There she is.

STANDING OVATION, DARLING. SIDEWALK PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR. Sexy, chic, and ready to claw someone’s face off for looking at you funny! You are DIVA PERSONIFIED. This is some J Lo level promenading going on here.

We can only guess at what she’s texting, but we think it might be “Eat my shit, Taylor Swift.”

Naya? A word of advice. When you’re looking this put together and spewing this kind of high-riding bitch attitude in front of photographers, an epic hair flip would not be out of place. Try it next time.

    Thought it was a Kardashian.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Yes, looks like a Kardashian clone, but with good taste.

      • marlie

        Well, *better* taste.

        • Rhonda Shore

          Point taken…but she does look good here.

    • Don Hackett

      i thought it was bianca jagger,,,,,,sleah in norcal

      • formerlyAnon

        I didn’t think of her, but yes. That level dressing. And simmering glamor.

    • Tee

      Sooooo many reason why it’s not a Kardashian: it’s not a stretch fabric, the hem is not at the butt cheeks and a stripper is not missing her work shoes. Plus she looks FIERCE!

    • fromanotherplanet

      A Kardashian with actual taste which is a feat impossible to accomplish, so kudos to Naya.

  • Thomas

    Tbh, the lace isn’t doing it for me. White lace will always make me think of lingerie or a wedding dress for some reason, in this case lingerie.

    • MM4321

      Agree about the lace but o/w a personal best for her. P.S. – she is not texting anyone, teehee.

    • MRC210

      I was thinking Elizabeth Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Between the lace and the seaming, that dress looks like Liz’s slip.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    Damn. Though the fact that she hadn’t closed the flap on the bag is driving me nuts. That’s why I avoid bags that have the handle attached to the flap, because it has to be clasped/closed or it doesn’t look right.

    • Alison

      Literally my first thought when I opened this page. “Girl, CLOSE YOUR HERMES.”

      • kimmeister

        Especially since passersby can now see that it is empty!

        • MRC210

          I know! My first thought was “Close your purse, that’s how your valuables get lost or stolen!” … but of course, she doesn’t have to worry because there’s nothing in it.

          I love a floral print pump. Love the bag too. The dress, no.

    • WaterGhost

      The open flap is an odd little detail, but it prevents the look from appearing too studied.

  • James

    I am pretty sure Kim K 2.0 would only be texting Swifty to beg for some scraps from her table, considering the state of her career.

  • Karen Belgrad

    Ack, I need a pic where I can see her left ring finger more clearly. Because all I can think is “divorce? already?” when I see ‘leaving an office building in Beverly Hills, California’

    That said, Reese still wins for “best use of a purse with actual stuff in it”

    • R.A.

      My gosh… you’re right!! Where is the ring?!?! I just spent a good three minutes looking for it. Unless she’s having it re-sized or something… if she IS going to go see a divorce lawyer, that has to be some kind of record.

      • leahpapa

        I don’t think they ever got married – just broke up.

        • R.A.

          And then she married someone else! Allegedly on the same day that she had planned to marry her ex… possibly wearing the same dress she had picked out for the first wedding. It’s a crazy story.

          • leahpapa

            Gasp! I missed that one. Wowza – so juicy!

          • R.A.

            I can’t get enough!

          • Karen Belgrad

            Same here… She is definitely one that induces rubbernecking!

          • Crystal

            She literally married this guy like a month after she broke up with the other guy.

          • demidaemon

            I must say that she is efficient and quite cost-conscious for a celebrity.

          • formerlyAnon


        • Guest

          She married someone else on the already chosen wedding date.

  • barbarienne

    I don’t like the eyelet fabric of the dress, but the cut, fit, and color are perfect. Hair, accessories, everything is spot on.

    Reese is the queen of “casual Town and Country” sidewalk promenades, but Miss Naya here just took the high-end chic of the spectrum and locked it up.

    • leahpapa

      What’s shocking to me (and I’ve been scouring Google images to verify) is that there are several promenades with Reese leaving the same building! Must be where the Pavement Princesses get their start.

      • barbarienne

        It’s an office building in Beverly Hills. I wonder if it has a lot of agents’ offices? Or at least one big agency with a lot of agents?

        • leahpapa

          Or the home of Miss Luella’s Royal Academy of Pedestrian Glamour.

          • barbarienne

            Now I imagine a conversation between star and agent that goes, “Okay, sweetheart, we need to show the paps the new image we’ve agreed on. Go downstairs to Miss Luella’s, tell them you want Package #4. I’ll tell the guards on the door to let it slip that you’ll be coming out in a couple of hours. They’ll have a car waiting for you. Walk tall, and make sure you show the bag!”

        • FibonacciSequins

          Could be. I would expect the big agencies to have underground valet parking, but Naya is obviously dressed for photo ops, so maybe she used the street entrance for that purpose.

          • marlie

            And if I wonder if the agent’s offices coordinate the entrance/exit shots for the stars who want to do the sidewalk promenade. “OK, Reese is at 10:15, and then Naya is at 11. Tell security to make sure their entries and exits don’t overlap.”

  • MilaXX

    Well played Naya. Looking all chic n’ stuff! I’m calling this a sidewalk WERQ!

    • Lee

      I want to BE you and have these clothes.

      • J.W.

        Me, too.

  • Anna

    Really thought this was Kim Kardashian from the thumbnail. Love the shades and the Kelly bag, but it doesn’t really go with the outfit.

    • To be fair, if I had a Kelly bag, I would pair it with everything, including my 11pm Walmart run sweatpants.

      • Anna

        Ha, true. Although Naya is in some position to at least ensure that her free clothes somewhat go with her free Kelly bag.

        *Puts self on Kelly bag waiting list in the meantime*

      • FibonacciSequins

        For what it costs, you’d be entirely justified in doing so.

      • disqus_K28BInF1up

        I just bought a vintage one for my birthday! She is using the heck out of it. She’s been papped nearly every day since the wedding and has it with her no matter what she is wearing. I believe sweatpants were involved in one picture.

    • formerlyAnon

      See, I use the “you can tell by LOOKING that it’s expensive AND that it’s the good kind of expensive – the kind where you get value and a much loved possession for your money” defense on it not really going with the outfit. It transcends “going with” in a rich people kind of way. *

      *ETA: Despite that, I can’t even imagine having enough money to actually buy one of those bags. If I did, I’d want one each in black, red and burgundy.

      • Anna

        True, as a veritable nobody civilian not getting papped anytime soon, I definitely get the value standpoint. I’m a big believer in cost-per-wear myself. I don’t think Naya’s all that concerned with value though (or that this particular one is much loved amongst her pile of free designer bags).

        Agree though about wanting one in all the colours. I don’t like logo or obviously designer bags and Lindsay Lohan has ruined the Birkin for me, but I’ve always loved the Kelly.

  • Striking as hell, baby Kim.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Pretty! Sexy! She’s working that dress without busting out of it anywhere. The bag is too big/heavy for this look. But love the shoes and glasses.

  • StillGary

    it actually looks like she’s utilizing the bag!

    • Look again at the first picture. I don’t think so.

  • Wink

    Not wild about white lace, but at least she’s wearing appropriate clothes for summer. Also, she’s working the hair and shades.

  • Mona_Visa

    Very pretty. Is it just me, or does the model have a bit of a titscrepancy in that pic?

    • RunAmuck

      The fit on the model is awful.

  • Mothra

    There Is Nothing In That Bag. I am becoming obsessed.

    • Calinda_L

      Please tell me that’s an actual blog, because I would read the hell out of it.

      • Mothra

        ON IT!

  • OffToSeeHim

    Want. Shoes. SOOOOOO. Bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Starling

    Ahem….Lea? Girl, you’re getting outplayed & outdiva-ed by your costar. You might want to work on that.

  • papillon

    This is an improvement. And her hair is black again, yay! I wish she’d close her bag though. Your comments here are classic though.

  • hughman

    It almost makes me miss the Old Days when “Glee” was entertaining and Santana was the most awesome bitch you wanted as your BFF.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Do you mean only season one?

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    She has never looked this chic and put-together! Must have hired a new stylist. Brava Naya!

  • Naya has a strong drive to be a star and it shows. Go forth and be fame hungry, young Naya.

  • BlairBear

    She needs to take a break from her ps she looks 20 years older

  • MoHub

    Nice slip. Too bad she was in too much of a hurry to put her dress on.

    • What, because it’s white? There’s tons of detailing, it’s lined and doesn’t look flimsy.

      • MoHub

        Because it’s white, has eyelet lace, and a visible underwire.

  • Constant Reader

    Way to work some late-summer glam!

  • NBG

    Please, please, please let that be what she was texting!
    And can we talk about how she is working those movie star glasses?

    • FibonacciSequins

      She was reading a text. You can tell by the raised eyebrow and shade she’s throwing at her phone.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Protip: a bag that new shouldn’t be hanging open. Makes the lack of wear marks very obvious.

  • sarah

    She is showing no respect for that gorgeous empty bag.

  • AlisonHendryx

    That BAG…. I die.

  • Imasewsure

    Guess it’s a girl thing but I love white eyelet when it’s well done. I’m liking this particularly since the whole look reads more classy than hoochy… The best part is the neck up though – hair, shades and diva-tude!!

  • Sarah

    Sorry, she looks okay but I don’t like that dress. I hate the assymetrical off-white placket, and the uneven hem. Also not much a fan of white eyelet, because it calls to mind little girls’ bedspreads.

    • marlie

      Actually… I had a white eyelet bedspread once upon a time. And I might have a white eyelet dress now… NOT made out of the bedspread, btw.

      • Sarah

        So did I. And canopy curtains, ruffled canopy, throw pillows, Easter dresses, and a pair of summer shorts, if I recall correctly. I know it can be used to good effect on an adult, but it will always be twee to me.

  • Cynica

    Miss Witherspoon is also invited to suck it. How will Reese retaliate? Oh, kittens, imagine a motherf-ing walk-off in Beverly Hills!

    • NBG

      The Empty Designer Bag Walk Off. Somebody make this happen!

  • LJCdoc

    Close your bag, or people will know that it’s empty and you are carrying it only because somebody gave it to you (and you are fabulous). Otherwise, very well done.

  • Kristi Mitchell

    And that’s how it’s done bitches.

  • boweryboy

    PLUS she’s letting us know that her bag is empty AND she gives no fucks about it.

    • MarieLD

      Thinking the same thing. She’s holding it with one finger. Can’t be too heavy.

  • Tracy_Flick


    Though it looks as empty as Taylor’s.

    • demidaemon

      Are we talking about heads or bags?

  • JauntyJohn

    Guuuuuuuuurl. You slay.

  • Lily

    Shoes are a must!

    • kimmeister

      Who’d have thought that python + floral print would be a win, and yet it is!

  • Linderella

    No idea who this is (fuck, I’m old!) but she is bringing it. Love this look. The unlatched handbag is giving me fits, but the dramatic text-reading expressions are epic.

  • marlie

    Trophy wife realness. I think she looks great. I’d bet that the bgc is actually empty (except for her phone), but It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous bag anyway.

  • Chaiaiai

    This picture makes me want to commit to three months of the cocaine diet, a brazilian blowout, and spending my mortgage payment on a new bag.

    Well done, Ms. Rivera

  • frannyprof

    Sorry, but the bag, glasses, and nails do not work with this look at all. Try harder next time.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I love how she is leaving the bag open so everyone can see there is absolutely nothing in it. Plenty of room for very sharp knives.

    I’m rewatching Glee from season 1 and that show was so good at one time. It is a little bit heartbreaking watching Finn and Rachel’s chemistry ignite.

    • kimmeister

      In sheaths, of course, so that nothing damages that beautiful bag!

  • annmartina

    She wins the Dita Von Teese award of sidewalk sartorial splendor

  • Herr Meier

    celebrity world is so weird.

  • Little_Olive

    Her upper lip kills the whole effect. Also, the bag doesn’t really go.

  • nannypoo

    I think she’s texting “My lip implant is almost as big as my boobs”.

  • SewingSiren

    Loves cat eye sunglasses and white eyelet. Both pitch perfect for August. Nothing else matters but it’s all good anyway.

  • Jacob Bowen

    The hair flip comment brings me back to the days when I would watch Chris Crocker’s “The Hairflip” and “Bitch Bell” videos and cry from laughing…those were the baby gay days.

    Back to the fierce…she looks GOOOOOOD! I love her glasses, and I am SO glad she decided to go with those cute heels and not the model’s flats. I wish Glee was good after season 1, because I would love to still watch it.

  • Nicole

    She’s aiming for Megan Fox in the face?

  • alyce1213

    I just see a melange of Kourtney and Kim Kardashian. I don’t know why she’s doing this. (Maybe I do.)

  • IngerMereteH

    Killer silhouette, great choice of shoes, not sure they go with that equally great bag, the dress appears to look better from a distance than up close, when the mishmash of panicked Home-and-Cottage detailing would be harder to ignore.

  • Monabel

    What’s going on with the center of the bodice? Looks like someone added a non-matching strip down the middle to let it out & said “Buttons! that will make it better!”

  • Calinda_L

    I’m pretty sure she’s texting, “this is a fake text so that it looks like I’m not just walking down the street hoping to get photographed.” She may look good, but she’s gonna sprain herself if she doesn’t stop trying so damn hard.

  • gitchygitchymama

    does she have an appt with a casting couch?

  • Coco Chanel

    She looks fab but I’m just so tired of these damn sidewalk catwalks!

  • LadyVimes

    The bitchiest of bitch faces. I love it.
    And that entire ensemble is fabulous.

  • A_guy01

    “Conchita Rodriguez, mistress to Colombian drug lord Juan Alvarez Ramirez, shopping in Beverly Hills”
    I am living for this bitch right now. But you’re right uncles. She needs an epic Reese Witherspoon Motherfuckin’ hair flip.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I don’t see a wedding ring! Let’s all join hands and jump to a conclusion!

  • ktr33

    And maybe throw a wallet and a lipstick in that Birkin. It looks like she’s carrying an empty cardboard accordian file. But fiercely!

  • stubbornthoughts

    Reese still takes it for me, but this kicks Taylor’s sidewalk promenade’s ass. She looks utterly fabulous.

    Pretty sure Naya’s phone was the only thing in the purse.

  • evave2

    I think the white eyelet cotton (?) dress is lovely, I like her shoes, i like her purse (it has something in it!), I like her hair, I like her everywhere.

  • RoseJB

    Boy does that dress ever look schlumpy on the model.

    • grasshack

      looks like underwear on the model

  • musi_

    i am in love. i would wear all of this.

  • Esz

    You know, its a cute look and very bright and breezy. But closer inspection of that dress reveals it to be akin to an amateur sewing project gone wrong. Whats with the hem and the off-centre button placket???

  • Columbinia

    She looks so 1959. I mean that in a good way. And she’s proven the awkwardness of how the Hermes bag gapes open. I always wondered about that.

  • SoAnnaPropriate

    That bag. Want.

  • JynxTheCat


  • Anplica Fiore

    Top pic looks like an ad for something expensive…

  • Raspberry2012

    MUCH better. This outfit is not only chic and lovely, but it hides the crazy far better. Some of her more recent outings would have the civilians running for their lives, and she can’t have that, now can she?

  • fananafanafophalec

    LIVING for that skeptical eyebrow

  • Kerry McCombs

    Empty.Bag. Seriously, is her phone the only thing she’s keeping in that thing? She looks fab, though.

  • fromanotherplanet

    YAAASSSSS NAYA, You better SLAY DEM HEAUXS!!!! I LIVE FOR THIS ENTIRE ENSEMBLE and the bitch smirk was the ribbon of the package. Nicely done.

  • Jessica Peterson

    She’s gorgeous.

  • DeniseSchipani

    I know what she’s texting. It’s this: “I’m carrying this thing on my arm that Hermes gave me. Am I supposed to put some shit in it? It opens up at the top, so…”

  • LibKat

    Pretty much perfect. Love the shoes with the eyelet.

  • DuBey2

    Wow. I’m so impressed. You DID start that blog.

    • Mothra

      Yes but i haven’t done anything with it yet. 🙂 I am not sure about copyright infringements with using other people’s pictures…

  • DuBey2

    WERQ. Love the styling. minor quibble w/how the front eyelet piece sort of gets caught between knees while walking .

  • Pterodactyl111

    Cuuute shoes.

  • imustacheyouaquestion

    I like it. she looks like an italian mistress

  • Amel

    Wow it looks SO much better on her than on the model – she took a casual-looking dress and made it into “bombshell strolling on the Italian coast”

  • Winterlight

    Sweet eyelet and heavy black bag do not go together. Bring in a nice rose shoulder bag or clutch. Otherwise, as you were.
