      I just um… threw up in my mouth a little bit.

      • demidaemon

        YEAH. Not to be mean or anything, but this reads as high end escort to me. NOT GOOD.

    • Danielle

      Textbook scrolldown fug.

    • marlie

      When will this “swath of see-through” dress trend END? I’m so effing tired of it.

      I also think her makeup is too caked on, and I suggest she try a different hairstyle every once in a while.

      • Kiltdntiltd

        SOooooooo with you on this. Sexy does not equate with seeing everything.

        • marlie

          It’s not even INTERESTING. It’s just see-through for the sake of see-through.

          • Kiltdntiltd

            And it screams HOOOOOKER to me.

            • demidaemon

              I said “high end escort”, so I’m pretty much on the same page.

      • papillon

        I was just going to leave that same comment. It is positively abhorrent.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      No, just no. Not now, not ever. No.

      • greymain

        well said. 😉

    • Karen Belgrad

      Although I think the the bottom portion should have been the same fabric, compared to her normal red carpet attire (mermaid, cleavage), this is practically a muumuu.

    • frannyprof

      So, is dressing like a stripper on the RC a thing now?

    • ChaCha_70

      Gurl, you look like you’re attending the porn of the year awards. No.

    • Alicia

      Of course. I wouldn’t have minded (much) the belly strip and the yoke at the top, if the skirt was all solid.

      • MoHub

        It’s interesting that the belly strip is shorter top-to-bottom than the one on the model, which makes her boobs look as if they’re hanging low. Of course, I’d guess that she doesn’t have as much midriff length as the model, and a belly band the same height as the model’s might have ended below her navel.

        • scoobysnacks

          Sounds like a catchy song about bra support…”Do your boobs hang low? Do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie’em in a knot? Can you tie’em in a bow?…”

          • MoHub

            Can you throw ’em over your should like a Continental soldier?

      • Violentcello

        Exactly. And can you see her (white) bra strap in the picture looking over her shoulder? I know functional strapless bras are probably not easy for her to find, but c’mon.

      • Kara Keenan

        YES. Exactly.

    • Crystal


    • SewingSiren

      She is a comedian. This dress is funny.

      • demidaemon

        I guess? In a way?

    • AlisonS

      I thought this was Kelly from Real Housewives of New York…..

    • Crystal


      • TinyDynamo

        *getting in line behind Crystal* BUUUURN THEM!!

    • Dany

      The dots serve to make the dress incredibly unflattering to her naturally voluptuous figure.

      In addition, the hair…it looks like she stole Sarah Jessica Parker’s hair and put it as a wig. WREQ.

      • greymain

        love WREQ!!!!!!

    • Anna

      Ew. That’s all I got.

      *goes to look at her boyfriend instead*

      • MartyBellerMask

        Seriously. He should be on her arm anyway. They are canoodling amateurs. Did they not read the book??

        • Anna

          Exactly, my second thought after “Ew,” was “WHERE THE HELL IS JOE?!?!”

          • Kitten Mittons

            That’s a question I ask myself daily.

            • Anna

              Ha! Me too.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Every once in a while, I’ll throw ANDRE in there instead, for funsies.

            • Anna

              You’ve lost me! Any particular Andre?

            • Kitten Mittons

              Ha, no. I just realized my brain mashed together What Happened to Andre, and Where the Hell is My Chiffon. Ohh, Friday, you come not a minute too soon……

            • Anna

              Ah, I get it now! Soo with you on TGIF, this week has just dragged on and on.

            • Kitten Mittons

              It’s been a decent week, but I am spent. I would have a drink tonight, but I’d be on the floor by 6:30pm, I think.

            • Anna

              Same! I had a short week last week because of the long weekend and I was sick one day and this week it’s like, “5 day work week, WHY?!”

            • Kitten Mittons

              Short weeks screw with your head that way, most definitely. But when you have one, they are so delicious…..

    • Mothra

      I don’t like it. It looks cheap. Like from the Fredericks of Hollywood catalog.

    • @Biting Panda

      Dayum, I want her curves. Though I do not want her shower curtain dress.

      Also, she and Sausage Friday King, Joe Manganiello….Doing It or Fauxmance? Discuss.

      • Alicia

        Hey yeah – it’s Sausage Friday and 4 posts down we’ve only got Capaldi to show for it? This really *is* a quiet week in poledancing.

      • Stacy C


      • papillon

        I also think it’s faux and I don’t even keep track of celeb dating news. For some reason, I thought Sofia was married up until I heard this news tho.

      • Anna

        Hot on paper. I mean c’mon, look at them. But I’m inclined to go with fauxmance.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        They have to be doing it, right? I mean, anyone with eyes – or hands – would happily do either one if them.

        • marlie

          Shocking, isn’t it?

          In related news, I just saw a preview for the new Woody Allen movie that pairs Colin Firth and Emma Stone, and that’s straight up weird.

          • KateShouldBeWorking

            Woody really can’t separate his home-life from work, can he?

          • Dora Kishinevsky

            A creepily inappropriate pairing? In a Woody Allen movie? Gosh.

          • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

            And the new one is Emma and Joaquin Phoenix. Just as bad.

            • marlie

              It’s not AS bad. Joaquin isn’t more than twice her age.

            • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

              You’re right. I just checked their ages, and I thought Joaquin was a lot older than that. I thought he was around the same age as Jerhnny Derp.

        • formerlyAnon

          I approve of your ETA’ed reasoning, although I am not – at least via print & screen – drawn to either.

      • Henry Maler

        Fauxmance, mainly because his Hottest Man Alive article totally read like an “I just haven’t met the right girl” piece from the 50’s.

        • demidaemon


      • Danielle

        Fauxmance. She just dumped her fiancée, he’s nothing but a hot rebound.

      • Nancer

        So, probably fauxmance, but why not? I would totally have a fauxmance with Joe – in fact, I AM having a fauxmance with Joe! In my head! :]

      • marlie

        Total Fauxmance.

      • Jane Donuts

        Am Facebook friends with a friend of hers, and he posted a Facebook pic of Joe sitting with them at a concert, so fauxmance or not, they’re spending time together.

      • FrigidDiva

        I’m going with Fauxmance, since in his People’s Hottest Bachelor article/interview he said that Sofia Vegara was his ideal woman, and no, I totally don’t have a copy of the issue at my desk at work right now.

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          I thought it was weird when I read that, and then about a week later they were everywhere together. I had to go back and reread it, just to be sure I didn’t dream it up.

      • alyce1213

        Fauxmance and Doing It.

      • demidaemon

        I’m saying Fauxmance because that is what I hope in my head. Also, good PR for her break-up and his gay-adjacent magazine interview (i.e. the one where he sounds like he’s lost the ball on heterosexual romance idioms).

    • Capt. Renault

      She going fishing later?

    • lunchcoma

      Hate the mesh at the bottom of the skirt.

    • Lower L

      It looks better on her than on the model?

      That’s all I got. I’m joining the pitchfork-carrying mob shouting for the end of see-through for see-through’s sake.

    • Glam Dixie

      Oh wow, this is Heidi Klum levels of tacky. This is Ta-kay.

      • StellaZafella

        Heidi would have had the bottom half removed…at the ass.

        • Glam Dixie

          True, but other than the length and the fact that it isn’t head to toe shiny, it’s definitely in her wheelhouse.

          • demidaemon

            You know if she could she’d get this made in vinyl or whatever other fabric has sheen.

        • demidaemon

          Yes, and she would have looked less slutty somehow.

    • Little_Olive

      The dress everyone else has put their five cents on. Girl, do your hair. Do something. It looks like your face has curtains.

    • ashtangajunkie

      It’s just an unflattering dress. But yay skin, I guess. At least that’s the message I think I’m supposed to get from odd see-through/mesh sections on dresses.

    • In_Stitches

      The purse is very old lady and the shoes are straight up stripper. The dress would be so much better without the perforation, lopped at the knee. I wish she had Jenn Aniston’s lazy style.

      • kimmeister

        The pairing of the purse is what cracks me up in particular. It’s so daintily beaded, and then combined with this dress?

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      That dress is pure beach cover up.

    • hughman

      It’s like a bag full of butt oranges.

      • Tess Tea

        You have once again caused a coffee spewing fit of laughter. Netted produce will forever be a new source of giggles 😉

      • scoobysnacks

        Oh for God’s sake, I was drinking hot tea. Hot tea! 😉 #buttoranges (Yes I just hashtagged in a non-Twitter setting, but this called for it.)

    • Constant Reader

      Sofia, you’re gorgeous. We get it. Please stop selling it so damn hard and with so little taste.

    • AlexisPayne

      Of Course.

    • Salasalu

      Get. Rid. Of. The. Hair.

      • MartyBellerMask

        THANK YOU.

    • Synnae

      This dress could work. On Rihanna. Or Rita Ora. Or anybody else who is half her age, urban and edgy.
      As for her, can we just get her faux beau back for Sausage Friday?

      Ok- to say one thing nice- she is not wearing a fishtail skirt for once?

    • RescueMe23

      NO. That is all.

    • PinkyK

      Sweet Jesus on a biscuit that is hideous.

    • LilyVanessi

      Godawful is a huge understatement.

    • TinyDynamo

      I regret looking at these pictures. This is all kinds of awful.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      OF COURSE.

    • Nancer

      That dress is truly tacky, but her face looks fabulous. Whoever does her makeup should be proud!

    • MaggieMae

      Meh. I think she gives her fans exactly what they want and expect.

    • MilaXX

      Hate the shoes and yet they are still not as ugly as Jessica Alba’s. The dress would be okay with that netting removed.

    • formerlyAnon

      That’s a stupid dress and she irrationally bugs me, but given those two things, not a bad job done here.

    • Susan Crawford

      Gorgeous woman in an unfortunate ensemble. Clutch: way too big and disproportionate. Shoes: cheap-looking. Dress: No, sweetie. Just no. The color is good for her, but that cut-out effect? Looks like fiberglass curtain material from the early ’70’s.

    • Kara Keenan

      Nope. Just no. The top honestly isn’t too bad, if boring. The bottom hole-punched part- ugh. The dress would be better if it was chopped at just above the knees.

    • decormaven

      The mesh looks like the windscreen material they use at construction sites to prevent soil erosion. Not an elegant look.

    • unbornfawn

      Ugly dress, all that see through crap. She is wearing it well and making it look better than it deserves. I’m not a fan of the lighter hair on her.

    • Imasewsure

      I could live with this if she had better shoes… it’s sort of beachwear for her…. hate hate the even weirder version on the model

    • vitaminC

      So glamorous and venue-appropriate!

      Oh wait, she’s not presenting at the AVN Awards? Then burn that trash, darling, and start over.

    • StrandedFashionista

      That hem hits EXACTLY at the wrong spot.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      it’s the kind of dress a certain sort of celebrity is going to think is sexy and will accentuate her curves, but it’s really much better on skinny girls. it cheapens a lush figure.

    • Sarah V.

      Honey, your butt looks lumpy.

    • FibonacciSequins

      This looks cheap to me.

      • Mr. J.

        Yep. Love it.

    • alyce1213

      Well, no deep cleavage for a change. Still tacky.

    • Deedles

      At least it doesn’t have a fishtail???

    • Frankie Carter

      Of course.

    • Tee

      I didn’t know “The Love Boat” was being made into a movie with Sofia Vergara as Charo.


      Not a nice dress.

    • conniemd

      Leave off the bottom mess and it’s a completely different dress. Even a bit of “trim” of the see-through material at the bottom of the solid would have taken away the hooker look.

    • evave2

      I am hating the lacy bottom thingie. I hate the lacy bottom thingie. WHY are so many women wearing the lacy bottom thingie (to her credit the length looks better on her than on the model).

    • Columbinia


    • HeisenbergHattie

      Jennifer Lopez called. She wants her dress back.

    • Danielle

      I’d give this dress a pass if it ended where the solid red did.

    • librarygrrl64

      Tackiest dress ever? It’s a contender.
