Taylor Swift in Mary Katrantzou at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

Posted on August 25, 2014

Taylor Swift’s live singing isn’t much to write home about but her parallel bars routine really wowed the crowd. And weren’t we all so impressed with her tucking skills?

Okay, seriously. Lorenzo would like to step up to the podium and defend this look. Tom will stand behind him and prod him like a psycho dance mom.


“Well… I think it’s an interesting idea…and I like the design… and it’s different, right? But yeah, all right. Her crotch looks weird.”


“And she doesn’t have nearly the…

“Go ahead. ‘Nearly the…'”

“Nearly the ass to fill this out.”

“Very good. AND?”


“It looks like…?”

“OH! And it looks like Sesame Street upholstery.”

“Attaboy. Do you want some juice now?”


Okay, that was all pretty much fictional. Here’s the real T Lo assessment. Tom did in fact laugh out loud at this and Lorenzo did in fact defend the design by saying it could work on the right body with the right attitude. That’s true. It’s a fairly basic romper, after all. But we really hate the way the leg holes flare out slightly. It distorts her hips, puts focus on her crotch, and doesn’t look very flattering. We also like the purple version much better. Of course Tay would pick the blander version.

Is anyone else severely distracted by the fact that there appears to be only six letters on that thing and they don’t spell anything?

  • muzan-e

    But if there were enough letters to actually spell something, we’d all be feeling vaguely perverted for reading her from ass to crotch.

    • Oh yes, so very right. I disapprove of rompers on principle, me own self. Especially when said romper is so short and tight that one could never actually romp in it.

      • LondonMarriott

        That’s a great point. If one cannot romp in a romper, it ceases to be a romper. It becomes a stander, a sitter, or a camel-toe-maker.

        • In this case, what we’re looking at is a poser, or is that poseur?

        • enuma

          Was this a deliberate callback to the children’s poem?
          Taylor Swift in a tub.
          And what do you think she wore?
          The romper, the shaker, the camel-toe-maker.
          And they all went out to MTV.

          • E. D.

            You win.

          • Call me Bee


          • Le_Sigh

            This needs to go in the TLo Nursery Book of Rhymes!

          • demidaemon


        • decormaven

          More like a rumper here.

      • Margaret Grace

        With a romper that short I think a girl could DEFINITELY do some rompin’, ifyaknowwhatimean…

        • Not QUITE where I was going, but I sure do get your point. (smile)

      • muzan-e

        Toddler onesies solve this problem by elasticising the legs. And maybe adding some more letters so that baby can learn the whole alphabet.

        • Should we put numbers on there too so baby can learn that as well?

          • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

            No, that’s for another romper.

        • Lucía Gavello

          Those onesies also have a snap crotch. That’s it. That’s all I have to say. Really.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        If one cannot romp, then the design has failed. Tis a sad romper, indeed.

      • BackseatDriver

        I have a feeling that the short-crotchness of this is primarily so that she could show off her thigh gap.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      I, on the other hand, find great pleasure in reading her whole look from head to toe.

    • Kent Roby

      The letters don’t spell anything, but, Honey, MANY of us are totally reading Tay!

      • makeityourself

        The nipples say “Q.”

        • MartyBellerMask

          And the crotch says “V.”

      • Margaret Grace

        girl needs to buy a vowel.

    • Sophie

      I don’t know, if they did spell anything, we’d be satisfied once we read it. As it is, I stared at the whole thing much longer than I probably should to try and decipher any secret words on there.

      • myandyleigh

        I know, right? It’s like the Jumble puzzles my grandma did, there was one in the daily newspaper (newspapers,so quaint,) only no amount of unscrambling makes the letters into words. I spent much more time staring at Tay than I normally would because I thought sure there was some deeper meaning, something other than just random letters.

        The romper itself is evil, as all rompers are. The fact that it doesn’t fit her, she doesn’t have the booty to pull it off and it manages to be equally tacky yet bland, offensive yet boring just means that Tay has worked her special magic and removed any sex appeal this might have on the right person, if indeed a right person exists for such a vile creation.

        • muzan-e

          So – not unlike her lyrics, then? *g*

  • Emily Giovanni

    It doesn’t look so much like a romper as it does a unitard.

  • It’s a typically Taylor choice of shoes but weird time to bust out a physiculture uniform.

    • It looks like the workout clothes from The Women.

      • Constant Reader


  • Funkykatt

    She just started drinking early and put on the wrong thing. I did that a lot too when I was her age.

  • Anna

    I keep seeing “QVC.”

    And I’m giving this my best McKayla Maroney bitchface.

    • @Biting Panda

      I’d like to buy a vowel, Pat.

      • teensmom99

        Ha–I 1st though it was LVMH but I like what all of you are seeing better.

  • @Biting Panda

    The only positive thing I have to say, is that the VMAs are the place to wear. . whatever this is.
    Also, I’m proud of the bitchitude she’s throwing.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      You have zeroed in on the purpose of the VMAs. They provide TLo and their community with so many totally wonderful examples of tacky. And if you can’t wear tacky to the VMAs, where can you wear it?

      • demidaemon

        True that. However, I state that their is good tacky, bad tacky, and holy hell what in god’s name is that? tacky. This is option C, which causes symptoms such as eye burning, bleeding pupils, and sudden needs to smash one’s head against a desk.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          100% agree that Tay’s romper misfire is firmly in the third degree of tacky.

          • demidaemon


  • Alexis Wenceslao

    It looks like a baby’sromper. a baby boy’s.

    • sojourneryouth

      It looks like it should have snaps holding the crotch together.

  • Karen Belgrad

    I believe the letters we are looking for are C-A-M-E-L and T-O-E

  • GemFemme

    I really hate that thing she does with her mouth on the red carpet. For God’s sake shut your freaking mouth!
    She’s wearing something that my daughter’s worn. When she was 12 months old. All she needs to complete the look is a binky, a diaper and a teething ring.

  • 25or6to4

    It’s like a hybrid of The Riddler and Jimmy MacElroy. Also, the Q-placement on her nipples is unfortunate…

    Scratch that — this entire look is unfortunate.

    • OffToSeeHim

      I couldn’t get past the vagina-framing V’s to see the Q’s, but now I can’t unsee it. God, what an awful look.

    • muzan-e

      .. jesus, there’s no unseeing that now.

  • MissRiss65

    Two Vs placed and her almost sorta camel toe. Lovely.

  • AnneElliot

    Why? For the love of God, why does this garment exist? Just. . . . why??? I’m flabbergasted.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      The designer better watch it. I’m hoping that this is a lapse. Otherwise she’s going to be nominated for my personal hall of shame, joining Mr. Pilotto and Stella.

      • demidaemon

        Don’t forget Raf Simons of Dior!

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          How could I forget one of the prime suspects?

  • NMMagpie

    It’s as if she’s telling us that she was really working out before getting all those “after working out” shots. And it’s still MEH.

  • Sarah

    It looks like a particularly bling nineteen twenties bathing suit. With awful, unmatchy shoes. I think the letters spell “Calm Down, Quasi-Vagina-Showing Girl”

  • OffToSeeHim

    Are rompers going to be a thing? Because I just can’t with rompers. At first I thought this was like Emilio’s SOSA print, which would have made me laugh so hard I’d have peed. But then… it wasn’t. WTH do those letters signify? And are there V’s by her … you know… V?

  • Edie Rose

    She chose the better shoes. That’s good, right?

  • redhead with tattoos

    The second I saw this last night, I knew this was the outfit I wanted your take on the most. You fellas did not disappoint in the least. Glad to know I wasn’t the only one who rolled around laughing on their couch as soon as they saw this.

  • call_me_schmeg

    I can’t believe our uncles T and Lo didn’t mention her burgundy hooves. Because what?

  • I have to say her hair bothers me more than the outfit, and that’s saying something. She clearly just wanted to people to talk about her last night (and today), and that they did.

  • Jenn Elting

    I’m more disturbed that it says “VD” on her boobie.

    My 5 month old son looks much cuter in his rompers.

    • PastryGoddess

      I saw that too

  • RussellH88

    Poor Tay ended up highlighting her lack of a booty and instead ended up with a big ole’ meaty tuck.

  • FrigidDiva

    But come on you guys, she’s gone POP so she’s totally bringing out her edgy looks! (excuse me while I try to prevent my seizure due to way too much eye rolling.)

  • Crystal

    Why is she wearing a baby onesie????

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I think they sell the same one at Babies R Us.

    • Sanglots longs

      Well, they seem to make it in sizes up to 288 months, so…

  • CPK1


  • SistaT

    She looks the fool. That is a Beyonce costume (and let it be known – I’d hate it on her, too, but at least it would conform to her thighs and ass).

  • Miss Atomic

    Tay cannot fill this romper out. And mind you, in my opinion, this is BARELY a romper. The shorts are just about nonexistent. Call me when the stars start wearing real pants/skirts/shorts again. This trend has got to stop!

  • Joanna B

    All I see are the letters “VD” across her chest and crotch.

  • Town

    It doesn’t look good on the model and it doesn’t look good on her. If it doesn’t look good on somebody who is shaped like a crab leg, it’s not going to look good on anyone. #Fail.

  • Tanya Wade

    2014. When dressing like a toddler became de rigueur. I’m going to throw a bone to this girl, even though my rational hate for her is giant. I like the haircut. But that color is doing her no favors. I’ll leave the crotch alone. I think the letters spell “Possum Face.” Or maybe I’m just projecting….

  • Punkinsmom

    Okay, I like the shoes, but this “romper” doesn’t look good on the model, why would anyone think it would flatter a different body-type? More booty (like the VMAs need more booty, ferchrissake!) would only hang out the bottom. This is ridiculous. Which means it fit right in with the rest of the ridiculousness on the red carpet last night.

  • shopgirl716

    It’s bizarre. Children in mother’s day out wear rompers. Short sleeved rompers with their own initials monogrammed instead of a designer’s initials. The stylist must have some major skills to talk someone into this craziness.

  • Roz

    Wow, everyone was just high as a kite last night, weren’t they? Event was TLo GOLD. Staying glued to the site this AM!!!

  • musi_

    she has that face on, like she thinks she looks pretty babe’n. but yeah, i cannot look anywhere else except crotch town

    • SistaT

      I will now say “I look pretty babe’n” whenever I am feeling particularly pleased with myself. Thank you.

      • musi_

        haha happy to be of service!

  • MarieLD

    Need to put up a photo of Prince George and ask “who wore it best?”

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Prince George is probably a better singer, too.

  • Dany

    We hates this, precious.

  • papillon

    Just why? Why, Taylor, why? I’m all for showing off your gams, girl, but not like this. Never like this.

    Also I thought rompers were cute for about a minute but now that I’m seeing them on real people, I am not sold. If a celeb can’t look good in a romper, worse yet for me.

  • imspinningaround

    Why maroon shooties? Why??

  • marlie

    She’s. Wearing. A. Onesie. A ONESIE. No. No way. Nope.

  • James

    It’s like someone cut the pant legs off so the edges are left dangling awkwardly. She does have nice legs though. But this thing is hiddy.

  • JenniferA

    As the Fug Girls would say, Look Into Pants!

  • Elisabeth Ashley

    Is anyone else mostly bothered by the shoes? If you’re going to have a terrible romper I think the least she could do was find a matching pair of shoes to go with it.


    Laugh out loud hiddy…… And that romper is ugly as sin…….

  • ojosazules

    It makes me wonder about her sanity.

  • Kitten Mittons

    Beside the problematic leg holes, the proportions are so weird. The long sleeves, barely there shorts, and the bootie…things do such weird things to her body. She has lovely legs but this is all terrible.

    Someone with more curves *might* look better in this, but I think on most people it might come off vulgar. Those shorts are so short that your ass would be hanging out. It would go from VMA’s to AVN’s very quickly.

  • Phydeaux

    I’m also distracted by the two circles on the breasts in the last picture. Please, no.

  • Lee

    In 1996 (when I was 6) I had a bathing suit that was purple and covered in random letters for no reason. It kind of looked like the 2 piece bathing suit version of this. In other Tay news I explained to my friend about all of her “leaving the gym” photos from this summer and she didn’t believe me until I showed her the TLo posts for proof.

    • demidaemon

      Spreading the good word!

  • Judy_J

    Sorry, rompers are for infants and toddlers, not for grown women to wear on the red carpet. Harrrumph.

  • FibonacciSequins

    The only good thing this romper does is show off Taylor’s legs, That’s not enough of offset all the bad things it’s doing.

    • CPK1

      she does have amazing legs. But surely there are less egregiously ugly ways to show them off?

  • LJCdoc

    Ironically, she’s never worn this “leaving the gym”

  • Jaeda Laurez

    The leg holes wouldn’t flare out if she had hips and booty LOL. This is a case of putting 5 gallons into a 10 gallon hat. I know she probably wanted to show off the legs, but the booty-shawts romper style is unflattering.

  • MM4321

    It drives me nuts what a try-hard she is. She doesn’t need to be! And as always, that side eye pose has me retching.

  • Tarquin

    She looks like a 1970s mannequin.

  • Gatto Nero

    Takes the romper to a whole new level of ridiculous. It is simultaneously infantile and sexualizing — a combination I find unsettling.

    • Julie

      My thoughts exactly. It’s so disturbing.

  • Lori

    When the legs on a romper are that short it really is just a leotard that didn’t quite know when to quit. No one, no matter how good the booty, could change that. Never mind that adults shouldn’t wear rompers. ITA about the letter situation being very distracting though. In this case distraction is probably a good thing.

  • gitchygitchymama

    ..the only thing missing there is a baton.

  • Ruby_Wednesday

    I have to agree with Lorenzo. It doesn’t fit right or completely suit her personality but there’s something I like about it. I think it’s the fabric. I like those colors.

    • formerlyAnon

      I don’t like the colors, but they are very “her.”

  • formerlyAnon

    Jesus, you guys are a godsend of entertainment!

    I was SEVERELY disappointed going from the thumbnail to the full body. Any kind of decently cut and not-entirely-discordant skirt or trousers and I’d have loved this on her. It’s much more interesting fabric than she sometimes wears and that fancy-patisserie-box-cherub color scheme is very T. Swift-appropriate.

    As is, utter fail.

    And the letters didn’t bug because I assumed they referred to some branding scheme of which I am ignorant. You’d know about stuff like that, though.

  • JulieK

    What bugs me the most is the long sleeves. I mean, what, her arms might get cold? While she isn’t wearing pants?

  • litbrit

    She needs to be twirling a baton. Then, this weirdness might make sense.

  • Abbey Rogue

    It might come from my having a 4 year old, and the LEGO movie being pretty big in Chez Rogue right now, but I look at sweet Tay here, and I think, “Where are my PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTS?”

  • Abbey Rogue

    So, THIS is what she wears to the gym! Her pocketbooks really AREN’T empty! Mystery solved!

  • Beto

    To me that’s a total mess on her. Sorry.

  • Just the absolute worst. Terrible on anyone over the age of 4.

  • Sam Smith

    Let’s see, this is opposite of twee and innocent and she has great legs. That was all the positivity I could muster.

  • cocohall

    I am NOT defending this, but my hunch is that Taylor is proportionately long-waisted. You combine long-waisted with someone of her height, and wearing a romper or any one piece item is just a no-go unless it has been custom made. There is a reason our gal often wears separates. One, for fit, and two, because with her height and slenderness, she doesn’t need to create one long visual line. But I suspect she thinks rompers are cute and who is going to tell her otherwise? Other than TLo and the BKs? As for the odd placement of the Qs, I see them as sort of a design element like the buttons down the front of a double breasted coat. I think it was intentional to have them line up like that down the middle of her torso. One someone else, they might have not have ended up placed over her nipples. I think Arianna Grande or Chloe Moretz could have worn this and we’d all feel a little more love for the look. But this just looks like she is playing Alpha Girl in the next super hero movie.

  • Oh Goody Goody

    I’m getting a glammed-up Mr B Natural vibe.

  • SugarSnap108

    I’m having camel toe sympathy pains. But she seems to be enjoying it, so … good for her, I guess.

    • semirose

      It looks to me like it’s more really unfortunate seaming more than it actually riding up that far.

  • Anemic romper…

  • Julie

    So gross. 🙁

  • KinoEye

    “Tom will stand behind him and prod him like a psycho dance mom.” I’m silent-laughing so hard at my desk right now. Thank you, gentlemen, for brightening an exceptionally terrible Monday morning.

  • lobsterlen

    Tay’s doctor should start her antibiotics STAT or she will end up with a urinary tract infection from that romper.

  • That’s the main thing bothering me about this onesie – the odd lettering throughout the material. Like, huh?

  • deech_sea

    What?! No comment on the red undies?

    • I can’t see red undies? I see one picture where there’s a reddish shadow on her butt.

      • deech_sea

        Is it possible that’s a shadow? It looks like panties to me, but I’m willing to concede if I’m the only one seeing it.

  • MartyBellerMask

    *sigh* Bless her heart.

  • Nika E

    Thats a big N.O.

  • elemspbee

    shoulda gone with the purple

  • nannypoo

    Wait – she wore this?

  • Frankie Carter

    She has got to be standing so splay-legged because if she doesn’t……

    well. let’s just say I don’t think that camel-toe would be improved by her standing with her feet together.

    That just looks hella uncomfortable!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    “Today’s letter is B for boring and bland.”

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Camel toe is never something one should need to worry about when on a red carpet. This was a terrible idea.

  • boweryboy

    My initial reaction was, “That’s just nasty!” I still stand by it.

  • roverrun

    I basically keep seeing the letters Q and V and therefor wonder if this is a line of clothing from the QVC channel.

  • evave2

    I think she looks awful. Her makeup is too harsh (but that may be because she is going to be on stage shortly) and the outfit just outlines that she has skinny legs. I mean for all the coming and going from her gym, she should have better shape to her legs (oh, I am bringing up Joe Manganiello, but only for the male equivalent of GOOD LEGS. She does not have the female equivalent of GOOD LEGS.) and know how to use them. To quote ZZ Top.

  • Little_Olive

    Well, all those trips to the “gym” paid off, bless her heart. But she tried, I’ll give her that much.

    The spelling thing has be so baffled it’s getting annoying.

  • LibKat

    Anybody else distracted by the letters “VD” so close to her crotch?

    The pattern matching on that front seam looks like a bad Project Runway effort and she’s got the camel toe to prove it.

    • mlle

      Yup. If you’re going to design a garment covered in random letters, that’s the kind of thing you should be weeking to avoid.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I don’t get this look at all. And if the letters don’t spell anything and are not the designer’s initials, then what’s the point? I think Taylor is really cute and could look so much better than this.

  • Freynika

    Manequin head.

  • Violentcello

    It’s oddly validating to finally stop laughing enough to scroll down and see the Uncles had the exact same reaction as I did.

  • J.W.

    I don’t understand this. Qs on the ta-tas and Vs at the crotch…and it looks like she cut the legs off of a jumpsuit.

  • Synnae

    Erm… I like the booties by themselves? And I think it is best if that is all that is said about this look.

  • mlle

    Rule of thumb: your formalwear should not show off your bikini wax.

  • Gorgeous!! I loved it the first moment I saw it!


    • demidaemon

      I hope that’s sarcasm.

  • MilaXX

    This is a look for lingerie models. Kate Upton, Beyonce, anybody with curves and yes, a booty could make this look sexy. It is not for Taylor.

  • lunchcoma

    Maybe the focus on her crotch is because she doesn’t want us to notice that her shoes have nothing to do with anything else she’s wearing.

  • Chickadeep

    I despise rompers on adults with every fiber of my being.

    • Bonnie Blue

      I wholeheartedly agree. Just the name alone…”rompers”….as adult wear…ugh.

  • I know what happened….she got caught at the last minute in her Adult Baby fetish wear. Ditched the pacifier, bottle and other accouterments. The funny crotch shape is from losing the diaper…all that extra room you know….Ok, its the best I can think of….

  • Tina M.

    This is Taylor Swift’s concept of “edgy” … and it’s the pajamas you would put on an infant.

  • Sonny

    I kind of hate myself for suggesting this, but I think this look would actually be greatly improved by a sheer skirt.

  • yllas

    (sigh) pretty fabric, but an odd thing for ANYONE to be wearing ANYWHERE. The crotch! Those ludicrous shoes! All bundled up but it looks like she left the little matching wraparound skirt or matching shorts at home. This reminds me of Jack Palance in his bizarre ancient Greek leotard, at the end of that Paul Newman movie, “The Chalice”. Seriously, have designers completely run out of ideas? Fail, Taylor, this was a Fail.

  • Call me Bee

    I actually love this fabric. Would look awesome on my little side chair. On a human it looks silly And…hoof shoes.

  • susan6

    You know….I’ve got to give her some credit for doing something very different. I mean, remember the relentless parade of Pretty Princess looks? She’s going for something different. That said, the purple would have been a better choice, I’m seeing toe (and not the ones on her feet), and yes, it highlights her lack of assets in this “year of the rear”. Hair and makeup are good.

    • StrandedFashionista

      You summed my opinion up perfectly. Granted I like her in princess mode, but the VMAs are not the right place for it. Now that she’s tried out something new and different, next time she can work on fit.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    Taylor Swift is serving up designer onesie realness. It seems like the wrong choice for someone who already veers toward twee and precious and wants to be more “edgy”.

  • StrandedFashionista

    Usually I love anything Mary Katrantzou does because I’m a huge fan of her textile-design skills, but this really isn’t working for me in the least bit.

  • Imasewsure

    I actually think I like this.. it makes her look a bit juvenile (aka like a 12 year old girl) but I think I do like it anyway… would have been more impactful on a curvier woman but kind of like that it’s not sexy… do prefer the purple…. hmmmmm

  • NOW she looks like she just walked out of the gym.

    • kerryev

      Lugash’s Gym.

  • Paula Pertile

    Don’t get. Kinda like the fabric, but . . . no, its just wrong.

  • TinaBelchersawkwardmoan

    Did she sit down all night? Because that looks like the crotch would cut straight through her labia.

  • RebeccaKW

    I really don’t like this on her. Maybe on JLo or Beyonce, someone who might fill it out a bit more in the tushie? Also, I hate the shoes. And the shorts area is reminding me of Linda Carter as Wonder Woman.

  • Melmmmendes

    That seam makes it look like her labia go up to her bellybutton.

    Didn’t Vera-Ellen wear something like this in White Christmas, only with a butt cape? Maybe this needs a butt cape. By butt cape I guess I mean train.

  • Laylalola

    Within the past year she’s realized her legs are probably her best asset (the Daily Mail runs fawning “Taylor has the longest pins!” items several times a week). This might be the outfit where, with the bad publicity, she realizes she’s beaten it into the ground and moves on to something else.

  • Miss wks

    The letters spell out “camel toe” in Latvian….

  • Lisa

    She really looks pleased with herself. That’s the worst part. And her hair is annoying. Just a big NOOOOO.

  • NBG

    My daughter had this outfit. I didn’t realize they made it in sizes larger than 0-3 months.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I am definitely distracted trying to spell something. But mostly I just hate it. It’s like, slap a tutu over that and I might be ok. But as a long-sleeved romper with no pants, no skirt, no nothing to balance out the top? Hell to the no. The Russian judge gives her a 1.75 with multiple deductions. You didn’t stick the landing, sweetie.

    • conniemd

      This. The long sleeves bug when paired with the up to the crotch cut of the “shorts.”

  • mary katrantzou is usually my favorite designer, but this?…..not so much.

  • Amelia Ross

    I’m seeing VD.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    For the MTV viewer, spelling is just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo last year.

  • Susan Collier

    V is for Vagina.

  • mrspotts66

    bad. awful. meant for a 2 year old.
    also, what’s with her hair? why does it look like a wig all of a sudden?

  • TigerLaverada

    I just want to thank you uncles for the LOLz. Assessments like this bring me unreasonable joy. I probably should thank Tay-Tay, too; she also provided me with a LOL moment when I scrolled down. Not the same kind of laughter, though.

  • destroy1234

    The dress looks like bus seat…which reminds of her nickname–“bus”

  • mapmakerscolors

    Never thought I’d be yearning for a sheer skirt over a bodysuit. Anything to obscure more of this from my eyes.

  • Coco Cornejo

    Alex, I’d like to buy a vowel…

  • cowper

    I’m in the bathroom….trying to figure out how to go.”

  • frannyprof

    Dear Taylor:
    Please do both of us a favor and stop with the rompers.
    Thanking you in advance for your attention to this matter,
    Your Crotch.

  • Josephina Jenkins

    She’s looking more and more like a mannequin these days – are we sure this isn’t just a Taylor-bot?

  • Wowitsemily

    Is it just me, or is it a bit grating that the print doesn’t line up–on a Katranzou romper? She’s kinda the new queen of prints, no? Like that awkward double v thing by her ladybits…it’s a bit

    • Wowitsemily

      She also looks like she just got back from the gym–it’s close enough to her normal “leaving the gym” fare

    • Laura Livingston

      Yes the double V’s pointing directly to her cameltoe is unsettling.

  • Ind Prod

    I hate to admit it, but if i had her legs, I’d wear this every day of my life.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    The looseness in the leg-holes scares me, but I guess it’s because I ride the subway everyday and I get tired of looking at panties.

  • Pterodactyl111

    I give her props for the effort to try something different, but she is not pulling it off.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    yeah, no.

  • boldprint

    this? is a bathing suit.

    • somebody blonde

      With sleeves!

  • Alfred Cox

    She should’ve worn the purple version. Hey stylists need to push her out of her comfort zone. Everything is always so undiscussable; so twee. Not that the purple would’ve looked better, but at least it would have been interesting and a little different coming from her.

  • Milos Mom

    Part of having “style” is knowing what works on your body. This would have worked on her as a flouncy short skirt with shoes that were more flattering.

  • RoseJB

    I totally didn’t get the gymnast joke and thought T Lo were saying she looked like a drag queen with great tucking skills… So that was confusing.

  • alainalynn

    I feel like those shoes would have gone better with the purple version as well.

  • stacey

    Once your mom starts describing your age in years instead of months, you are not in the romper demographic. This is a hard and fast rule and should be followed world wide. End of discussion.

  • LadyVimes

    That. Crotch. Pull.

    Taylor. Honey. Go fire whoever suggested that. If you’re at fault, go sit in the corner and think about your actions.

  • demidaemon

    I’m more distracted by its true hideousness, but, yes, I see what you are saying. Also, that conversation gave me a much well-needed laugh after today’s long day.

  • ailujailuj

    it spells out C-O-O-T-C-H-I-E.
    I don’t mind the outfit—the purple one is quite lovely. And I love the idea of a hooker’s romper for the MTV and such… but this ain’t it. Her shoes are great but again, not for the MTV and such. WTF. She has the entire fashion industry at her disposal and she shits alloverit. Hairs look good.

  • crashtestbonnie

    WTF is this woman’s issue with shoes? She hates them? They hate her? Her stylist hates her? That last one I buy, btw…

  • Elizabetta1022

    Mannequin with camel toe.

  • Akemi

    She looks fucking ridiculous.

  • Deya

    Straight up diaper rash cream commercial.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    The camel toe is also a little distracting. I’m way behind in my fashion critiques.

  • docholly

    I don’t know what was worse the Sesame street romper or the Kimye bad alpaca rug.

  • Kaonashi

    What in the Romper Room hell is this!?

  • ktr33

    How is this even a romper? It’s a “bodysuit.”

  • yllas

    This may have already been brought up, it looks a lot like Jon Heder’s ice skating outfit in Blades of Glory. Only with the leotard legs hacked off with blunt scissors just below the butt cheeks. I love it though!
