It’s cute. It suits her. It’s tasteful (in a bustier-and-panties kind of way). We dub this workmanlike. It’s getting the job done for her but it’s not likely to land her any major coverage either way. The buzz on this film is that it’s an epic misfire and several people involved are not just anxious about it, but embarrassed. We feel like this look represents that. She’s presentable, but that’s it. She’s not selling anything.

On a technical level, we don’t like the way the skirt and the bustier meet. Thickens her waist.

This is the second time we’ve seen those black lace shoes lately and we sincerely hope it’s not going to be a thing among the celebrity set to wear sheer black dresses with black lace shoes. Because that? Kinda lame.

Okay, you did your duty, Mila. Go home and read your Rotten Tomatoes reviews with a bottle of wine and a joint.

  • It’s a great retro way to think about foundation garments. Now, with the right dress on over her underwear, it could be really interesting.

    Does she think she’s in a Maidenform ad?

    • I thought she’d rushed out and forgot to put her dress on too!

    • Jean Marie

      Yes. This is missing the dress.

    • ireneY

      I agree! Fabulous as undergarments, but incomplete as-is.

    • Aunt Betty

      Yea, this totally looks like the undergarments my mother wore in 1955 with her formals. All Mila needs is a pincurl wash and set.

    • Esz

      This. Its missing the dress.

    • I was just about to say the same thing. This is lingerie, not a gown.
      Go home and put your dress on dear, it seems you’ve forgotten it.

      • She’s having that nightmare we’ve all had: you show up on the red carpet in your underwear.

  • Kent Roby

    The black lace edging of the bustier unfortunately looks like chest hair (then, again, I’ve spent decades making costumes for drag queens, so my world view is rather skewed!).

    • Anna

      Beat me to it. Was about to say that it looks like she’s got chest hair peeking out of her bustier.

    • NBG

      Thank you for doing your part to make the world gorgeous.

    • After seeing all your comments on this site, I’m so pleased that is/was your profession.

      • Kent Roby

        It’s not my “day job”, but I’ve been designing and making costumes (mostly for pageants and Mardi Gras balls, plus a few theater projects and a little bit of tv/movie stuff) for a long time. I have no problem making a fitted gown, but I can’t bear to sew a simple curtain panel!

        • cocohall

          Oh my god, you sound like a fashion super hero. By day, an ordinary man, but by night, he makes magic happens! I hope you sew wearing a cape. :0)

        • ballerinawithagun

          I create “unique” clothing also and I constantly have family and friends ask why I don’t have a slipcover or curtain business. I do occasional favors for family and friends but I despise every minute!

          • sweetestsith

            My first job was sewing curtains and I HATED it. I will make the most ridiculous froo-froo glitter costumes known to man, but hope to never sew another curtain.

  • Hermione

    I really dislike this. It just looks like lingerie and and the shoes look like slippers.

    • AudreysMom

      IF the first picture didn’t feature her next to the movie poster (in which she’s also wearing a skin-hugging black garment), it might have hope. Instead it looks like an extension of her costume or just plain old costume-y. Worse yet, it looks like Miss Kitty Goes to A Funeral. So, thumbs down for me too.

  • zellamaybe

    I will be seeing that movie no matter how bad the reviews are. And I actually think this looks pretty good, in a “playing a space princess” kind of way. She’s always a treat.

    • NMMagpie

      I will too. Eddie Redmayne is terribly sexy in my opinion and I will sit through a lot of dreck just for that.

      • So I do not think he’s sexy, but he is THE PERFECT villain. Oh my gosh. I have a thing for fay villains, so maybe I will develop a thing for him after this movie.

        • kimmeister

          “I have a thing for fay villains” – that is officially the first time I have ever heard/read this sentence in my life.

          • Yes, there is a deficit of this phenomenon in entertainment.

          • starrika

            You have David Bowie in Labyrinth, what more do you really need?

          • He’s lovely. But more? Paul Bettany in A Knight’s Tale, please, though he’s not quite a villain. Just well-misbehaved.

        • Don’t we all have a thing for fey villains?

      • AudreysMom

        from seeing the trailer Redmayne (to me) is the only reason I’d see this film. And as much as I love Eddie, this film definitely has Red Box rental all over it.

        • NMMagpie

          That it does! But Redbox or dollar movie, I will be seeing this one, damn my eyes.

        • Kent Roby

          From the extended preview, the only thing that excites me about the film is that one major gown/headpiece that Mila wears. I love Mila, and am ready to see her in something good, other than those sexy Jim Beam commercials.

    • bookish

      Yeah, I saw the trailer when I went to see The Hobbit and thought it looked like a fun movie. Plus I love Mila Kunis. This is the first time I’ve heard anything review-wise about it, so it’s a bit disappointing to hear bad things. I’ll still go, though.

    • Bridget Smith

      Yup. I will absolutely give my money to a big-budget space opera with a girl Chosen One.

    • quiltrx

      I didn’t realize until this moment that this was a Wachowski project. That plus the presence of Sean Bean make it appealing, if only in a pay-per-view kind of way.

  • I dunno, maybe a thin silver belt would have helped break things up a bit, but it’s still pretty boring. Also, lipstick.

  • In_Stitches

    Definitely a #I’mheresoIdon’tgetfined kind of look, to steal a Kelly Osbourne quote. I’m quoting Kelly Osbourne; the snow has finally gotten to me.

    On a non-fashion note, I am very bummed by the early reviews of this movie. Every movie is a remake, a sequel, or an adaptation of something else that, at some point, proved profitable; this movie was the rare example of a truly original work. It’s failure will be proof that the execs were right and we’ll be flooded with remakes of Killer Tomatoes and Gremlins for the next decade.

    • StelledelMare

      I definitely agree on the non-fashion note. With the slew of unoriginal material coming at us right and left, I will defintely give kudos to
      something for at least being original even if it’s not the best (even though some of my favorite movies have some kind of source material). I personally am looking forward to watching it but you’re right, no one seems particularly enthused.

      • In_Stitches

        I’ll continue to hold out hope. The cast is immensely likable and the visuals seem impressive. If the only problem is that it’s cheesy in the vein of, say, the Fifth Element, then I’m on board.

        • CelandineM

          From the preview I was hoping for a Matrix meets Fifth Element and would totally pay to see it. So tired of robot porn and depressing superhero scifi retread.

    • papillon

      Wow, all this time I thought it was an adaptation of a book. I could have sworn I’d heard the name Jupiter Ascending before. I agree it’s unfortunate because I think the idea has promise and it could have been very cool and interesting, something akin to the neo-Seoul portions of Cloud Atlas. Maybe they just needed more time.

      • StelledelMare

        Interesting thing about it is that they did get more time. The movie was actually supposed to be released last summer.

        • papillon

          Oh, I see. I guess they just couldn’t bring it all together then. That’s too bad because it looks like it could have been a visual feast.

      • Fancy Mukluks

        I thought it was a book, too. In fact, I was looking for it at the library last week. Oops.

        • papillon

          Ha, that is hilarious and adorable.

      • cocohall

        It all sounds vaguely like astrological charts: Mercury is in retrograde, Jupiter is ascending. Or rising, or whatever they say. It sounded familiar to me to. Which is genius really. To come up with a title that people think they know, but have nothing specific to attach to the words. I say every good actor should have at least one truly embarrassing project on his/her resume so Graham Norton can poke fun at them when they sit on his couch. “Let’s get the guests on!”

      • Kent Roby

        At the very least the movie should inspire a porn parody, like “Journey to Uranus”.

        • papillon

          Somehow I’m sure that already exists.

    • Freynika

      This is why I’m so into TV lately. There are better shows on cable on most given nights than any offering at the theaters. That, and free (with cable subscription).

  • jen_vasm

    For just having a baby and shilling for a sketchy movie, she could do much worse (I’m looking at you, Rosamund Pike).

  • Little_Olive

    Exactly. If this look were described on paper, one might expect a killer ensemble with perfect accessories. Turns out, she is just getting it over with and so are the dress and the jewels.

    Lace shoes are tacky as they come and should be banned by presidential decree.

  • renad

    The trend of passing off lingerie as evening wear really needs to die now.

    • Kent Roby

      Lingerie as outerwear was so well done by Gaultier in the 80’s (worn by Madonna, and copied by so many pre-teen fans); this effort looks rather lazy.

  • papillon

    This movie looks SO terrible. Even the ads are embarrassingly bad. I’m surprised these two are attached to it.

    If this was not essentially sheer underwear, I would be really into it. I’d also have preferred it with the straps.

  • The merry widow and petticoat go under a dress, they are not the dress. Hmph. Get off my lawn!

    • decormaven

      And don’t wear a string for a bracelet when you got some gorgeous loaner precious stone jewelry. Harumph!

  • What’s up with the false eyelashes glued on the bust? Is that in case the ones you’re wearing fall off? Smart.

  • Say what you will, I’m looking forward to this movie. Whatever it is, it’s not half-assed.

    • sweetestsith

      I am too. It looks pretty silly (I have no expectations!), but I adore the leads separately and look forward to watching them together. Plus, the costumes in the trailer are GORGEOUS. I’m actually a little excited, and kind of want it to be cheesy-terrible fun.

      Not wild about the dress or shoes, but her hair looks beautiful. I’m having major hair envy right now!

    • Fancy Mukluks

      Is it based on a book?

      • Sarah

        Don’t think so. There’s a sci-fi book called Jupiter Rising, but it’s not this….pretty unusual because I can tell you that working in a library for twenty years, EVERYTHING was a book, first.

  • NBG

    Wow, this is lazy. She might have done better using the runway bustier. At least that one looks less like “I forgot my dress” and more like “I love the 80s way too much.”

  • B_C_J

    I like this a great deal & I don’t usually like dresses that reference lingerie. However she looks very feminine & very pretty & she was smart to keep the makeup toned down so as not to look like a Guess advertisement model.

  • snarkalicious

    All she needs is a bunch of rubber bracelets, some fingerless lace gloves and giant rosary draped around her neck to complete the “Like-a-Virgin-era Madonna” Halloween costume.

    • Diane Beckert

      Yikes! Unfortunately, too true.

    • Wink

      Sing it with me: “I made it through the wilderness…”

    • largishbearishAtlish

      totally agree, somewhere along the comments this hit me too…now I can NOT unsee it.. (maybe writhing around ala Wierd Al Yankovic? now *that* would have livened up the r/c!)

  • Lily

    I’ve seen a lot worse, and from dresses that were much less obviously lingerie-inspired. This is suitable, and the skirt is really only transparent from the side.

    That said, I can almost tell from the trailer and the way the film is being promoted that it’s a stinker. Poor Eddy Redmayne, during all of his Oscar poledance, is hardly in the trailer at all (which may be a blessing for him – if his team didn’t negotiate it), and I have to wonder if the distributor isn’t trying to capitalize on his being around for Theory in order to sell this flick. We certainly haven’t heard a peep about it from him.

    • papillon

      I had no idea Eddie Redmayne was even in this movie until now (and I’ve seen quite a few TV spots for it) so I think they’re doing a pretty good job of not advertising that fact.

      • DeniseSchipani

        I saw him for half a second in a TV commercial for this movie and my jaw dropped.

  • Janet B

    Lipstick. In a color that you can see from 6 feet away. Please.

    • numenah

      Absoluely! A winged eye demands a bold lip.

  • sarcasmfont

    Not bad, but not as great as it could be either. Beautiful ruby jewelry, but what is up with that blue friendship bracelet?

    • Fancy Mukluks

      That’s what I was wondering, too.

    • MilaXX

      kabbalah bracelet maybe?

  • fauxhawk

    Those shoes are foot thongs.

    • Sarah

      YES. Was typing you beat me to it. They’re…dirty somehow. Rude Shoes.

      • fauxhawk

        Yes, there’s something vulgar about them, isn’t there?

        • Sarah

          Vulgar is apt. It’s as if her feet were fallen on hard times and forced to become exotic dancers….

  • Maybe her waist looks thick because she just popped out a baby….?

    • Maybe it does, but we’re specifically talking about the way the waistband of her skirt adds to her waist.

      • Shawn EH

        I think it looks more belt-like; she’s still giving us 1950s hourglass in the silhouette.

  • lobsterlen

    Curious … Does the blue string around her wrist signify something?

    • Sarah

      I was looking too, and as best I can figure it seems that Kabbalah bracelets (to ward off the Evil Eye) come in a variety of colors. Thailand also has Sai Sin bracelets – strings blessed by monks – that could come in multiple colors but are usually white. Could just be a sort of amalgam of the concept of the string bracelet, which are usually worn to fulfill a wish when they finally fall off?

  • Another Kate

    She looks like the protagonist in a Twilight prequel fanfic set in a Victorian bordello, right down to the blood-red stones in her necklace. (Although I would like the necklace with a different dress.)

  • Jessica Freeman

    Really dislike seeing the granny panties. Agree with the other kittens, this looks like a great under garment, not a dress.

  • Emily Smith

    I would totally redbox this movie after I’m already half a bottle of wine deep, I feel like that is what it’s best suited for.

  • Cheesy action, with two of my favorite star crushes? Yes, please. Am I happy to see Mila looking like a Saloon Girl? Not so much.

  • ChiKat67

    Hmm, I wonder if this movie is going to do to Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar chances what Norbit did to Eddie Murphy’s

  • mary

    the dress meh, but her makeup and hair looks perfect

  • ashtangajunkie

    Why do celebrities hate lipstick unless it’s in a shade of orange that doesn’t suit their colouring? Mystery.

  • FrauKrissie

    I think it’s cute in an 80s Madonna kind of a way. I don’t get why she removed the straps though.

  • cocohall

    I would never say anything bad about Mila, because Mila always looks like she might have “friends” or relatives that would be able to make you live a long, cold, miserable life in some Russian goolag. She has some epic resting bitchface. Anyway, who can tell what this dress looks like against that backdrop? Mila can afford to have some career goofs – she and hubby can live off That 70s Show residuals forever.

  • Sissy

    sick of cat eye, sick of hands on wait, sick of underwear as outerwear

  • Amber Tapping

    LADIES please for the love of god if your girls don’t actually fit into the boob cups don’t wear the effing thing. It always makes it look like a mall purchase. If you can get them to add a lining you can get them to put in cups that are your actual bra size.

    • kimmeister

      The bust looks absolutely terrible from the side view!

    • Her boob size might be fluctuating if she’s nursing.

      • Amber Tapping

        Ah you’re probably right, hadn’t considered that. Still, it’s becoming a habit amongst lady-stars and it irks me.

  • I do like her makeup, especially the cat eye.

  • MilaXX

    When I went to see Annie there’s a scene in it where Annie and her friends go see this movie that’s clearly supposed to be spoofing the Twilight movies. Mila and Ashton play the star crossed lovers in it. When I saw the trailers for this I swear it looked exactly like the spoof movie. That is not a good thing.

  • DrMomLovesLife

    She just had a baby, so I’ll cut her some slack. If Rosamund Pike gets at least 2 “baby brain” misfires, then so does Mila.

    • lobsterlen

      She didn’t have new born baby she gave birth to a toddler. The baby was 9 1/2 pounds. That’s a large baby for such a petite woman.

      • DrMomLovesLife

        The bigger they are, the hungrier they are . . . looks like she’s 10 minutes away from leakage. (That used to happen to me at work – a baby would cry, and my shirt would be wet!)

  • Dollhead

    I wore this outfit in 1987. It was a vintage 50’s crinoline. Not the lace shoes though. I had cowboy boots.

  • SewingSiren

    1950’s foundation garments. It’s been done to death since the 1980’s. Looks good on her.

  • conniemd

    A necklace. And one that doesn’t point to the boobs on display. Yay!

  • OffToSeeHim

    I doubt if she’ll have a bottle of wine and a joint, she’s just had a baby. I can’t believe how amazing she looks! And a BIG baby too, that’s why her breasts are popping out of the dress. Ten minutes away from a ten pound baby and you’re so engorged every move is agony. They eat ALL THE TIME.

    • I had a 5-pounder, and went from a 34B to a 42DD. I think baby just wanted to grow.

  • LeelaST

    Where’s the saloon?

  • Andalucia

    Looks like an old ratty petticoat from the 50’s.

  • sherrietee

    this is perfectly acceptable – for undergarments for a reenactment.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I like that the dress reflects the outfit she’s wearing in the movie poster.

  • marlie

    Aside from Mila’s boobs not quite fitting into the cups of the dress, I think she looks pretty, and this look suits her.

  • Beto

    How Madonna-ish

  • Nice slip. I bet it’d look great with a dress over it.

  • LibKat

    Hello, vampire saloon girl.

  • Freynika

    She look like a lamp in a bordello.

  • JocastaDeVilleneuve

    I’m fascinated by how, on the way from the runway to the RC, the bustier managed to become less see-through while the skirt managed to become more see-through.

  • Amanda Welliver

    They lined the wrong half.

  • enchanted216

    I think it’s really cute in a slight retro sort of way. She looks very pretty, but I have an issue with being able to see her panties through the skirt. That’s too tacky for me. I’m just saying.

  • carlatheviking

    I take exception to that necklace.

  • Imasewsure


  • Pammer

    This is another “I just had a baby and I got my body back” dress. An ugly one at that.

  • Kelly

    This doesn’t just look suggestive of a foundation garment; it looks like an actual foundation garment. Now I expect her to put a ’50s-retro, strapless, full-skirted actual dress over it.

  • Shawn EH

    I can’t wait to see the film, but I’m a Wachowski zombie. I liked Speed Racer. This is flattering on her because the bustier is so structural, and contrasts the heavy (but sexy) skirt. She’s a perfect little Can-Can dancer.

  • Qitkat

    I’m not generally a fan of bustiers but I like the whole of this look, even the matchy shoes, in this case, the red sole saves them.
    However the hairy looking fibers peeking out of the bust top…shudder.

  • Bea

    Oh, Uncles have explained – the reason she looks like she’s promoting an entirely different genre of movie is because she DOESN’T want to go all-in on promoting what was meant to be a launch pad to much bigger things. THAT’S why she’s been so thoroughly owned by Jenna on the sci-fi brief. Damascene revelations abound ’round these parts…

  • EEKstl

    It’s…fine. Didn’t know the buzz on the film was that bad, need to get back in the loop.

  • LOVE the necklace. She looks great.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I actually miss the sheer midriff panel, that and the higher neckline line and straps made the dress more interesting. Mermaid hair dulls this down as well. zzzzzzz.

  • Tarn

    This dress turned me into Cher’s dad from Clueless. “It looks like undawear. Go upstairs and put somethin on over it.”

  • I think the issue with the waist is that the top is a little long on her. It would sit better on her waist if the top part was like an inch shorter.

  • quiltrx

    I don’t like being able to see all that thigh/hip/whatever through it. It looks enough like the can-can that goes under something else as it is. Plus, you just had a baby, and this isn’t exactly giving off a “I’m so happy to be someone’s mother!” kind of vibe.

  • fooepi

    The preview for this film is ridiculously bad.

    “How could I be a space princess? I’m just a normal girl in flannel!”

  • Edie Rose

    Girl, that’s not your cup size.

  • ktr33

    It’s a little too Belle Watling Undergarments-y. Even snipping the lace off the top of the bustier would modernize it a little. And TLo’s right on the $ about the waist. Needs a belt, a la the scene where Meryl schools Anne Hathaway in the trajectory of cerulean.
