    That bodice is like a molting Lisa Frank notebook.

    • gotgreyhound

      But it actually kind of looks good! It’s a nice contrast to the very plain, sleek skirt. Considering what she usually wears, I would call this a win! Now if she could just get a new haircut…

      • evave2

        My thoughts exactly! The hair is so severe and I don’t know if it is cut for a role or what, but boy that is one severe cut.

  • Karen B

    RIP Janice the Muppet, who sacrificed herself so Sarah could wear this dress.

    • megohd

      This comment wins the internet today.

    • AnneElliot

      My first thought was, “How many Muppets died for this dress?”

    • Eric Stott

      My love for this is burning

      • Karen B

        There’s a salve for that.

    • bladiblah

      You took the words out of my mouth.

  • Liz-motherfcking-Taylor

    I do have to give her some credit for how boldly she dresses. It’s almost always very bad (to my eyes & memory!) but it’s hardly ever boring. Aggressively daring, Ms. Paulson! (But I do hate this as well).

  • Audrey Lee

    Holy Moly. None of this is working for me- muppet bodice, boring hair, matchy lips. It’s just..odd.

  • That last shot: a straight up challenge to tell her what you think.
    And I think this is tragic.

    • Allison Drury

      It’s a straight up challenge to look at her dress rather than SAG man’s sculpted unit! Can’t they “Barbie crotch” him?

      • It does catch the light well, doesn’t it?

  • Sekhmet6

    If she traded out the clutch for a blowgun this might work.

  • She’s done so much worse, I can’t help but to give this a pass.

    • Carly Clement

      I agree – I think this looks great on her – it only has one bad element!

  • Truthiness2U

    See my vest, see my vest see my vest!

    So this was made out of endangered Muppets, right?

    • Sekhmet6

      One of the best Simpsons’ numbers EVER!

      • I did the Marge Simpson, “Mmm” when I saw this.

  • tryinnottobetoojudgy

    That is some severe matron hair. I think she’d look so much more chic with a short cut. Poor woman always looks a bit awkward and contractually obligated to me.

    • DinaSews

      Right? Who thinks that haircut is working? It’s like DIY hair.

      • tryinnottobetoojudgy

        Yep, looks like she handed someone (her PA? her honey Holland? the limo driver?) a pair of scissors and said, “Just whack it in a straight line below my ears. I gotta motor.”

  • steph

    Yes, the bodice looks like an explosion in a yarn factory. But overall I love it on her.

    • anneshirley

      Yes! I knew everyone was going to hate this, but I kind of love it – only for her though. 🙂 Also, the understated elegance of the skirt and clutch saves it.

    • Lucía Gavello

      I do too, It’s fun!

      PS: Kittens, I know I didn’t love Alicia Vikander’s dress and now I’m praising this but I swear I’m ok and not hitting the crack pipe XD

    • Catherine

      I love it on her, too. I know that means the bar is low, but she definitely jumped over it. And kudos for the bright lip, however, it far past time for that coif to go.

  • Kelly

    I sort of love this and hate this at the same time. Otoh, it’s bold and interesting and eye-catching, and I like the blunt-cut hair. Otoh, she looks a little silly, like she’s moulting. But least she skipped the terrible fringy cape that seems to be part of the original. Can you be both chic and goofy at the same time? If so, this is probably it.

    • tbone

      Oh my gosh could you imagine pairing this dress with that cape IRL? *shudders*

  • darnray

    I like this on her! She’s so severe in the styling, the firework effect of the bodice totally works for me. Why not have a little fun, it’s just fashion…

  • Anna

    She totally looks ready to dance her cares away (worry’s for another day).

    Except for the last picture, where she’s getting ready to scratch our eyes out for making fun of her dress.

  • CatsNDolls

    I am happy to see someone use fun fur for something other than boas. Could I have the pattern?

  • ovarB

    The top is a Lion Brand Eyelash Yarn Crochet Pattern #57480.

    • Sanglots longs

      Exactly my thought. But it’s OOP, since it was originally published in about 2002.

      • nicer than i sound

        GAH–I JUST POSTED THE EXACT SAME JOKE! (I should have kept scrolling)

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Is she wearing the thing that exploded out of Robert’s chest on DA last night as a blouse?

  • Janet B

    Sarah Paulson in another weird dress? Of course.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Yep, that couple of seconds where she didn’t look ape-shit crazy didn’t last long, did it? Sigh…

      • Janet B

        lol

  • ovarB

    Question…so is this pink color now a thing?? If so I need to call myself from the late 80’s and early 90’s and get the color.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I can’t with those roots.

  • I know the mahna mahna song is irritating, but she didn’t have to skin them. Nice lipstick though.

  • JerFeist

    It kinda looks like she shaved Jem and the Holograms and turned the clippings into a bustier.

  • Genevievia

    Living pipe cleaners that have overdosed on Miracle-Gro.

    Pretty fabulous side eye though.

  • Kent Roby

    Yes, the bodice is wacky, but I personally prefer to see something like this over safe expected looks (I’m looking at you, Sophia and Kate). Keeping flying your freak flag, Sarah!

  • koosh ball bodice.

  • SophieCollier

    Not an attractive look.

  • Is that Muppet fur on the bodice of her gown?

  • Melani R

    I don’t know who she’s side-eyeing. She’s the one who agreed to wear that.

  • TerryMH

    What. Is. That? I’ve seen better dresses on Bratz dolls.

  • ojosazules

    She should have stuck with Stella. Never thought I’d ever ever say that.

  • KimThore

    The definition of horror story.

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    They dug out the cheap Michael’s eyelash yarn for that dress.

  • chelseaad

    I’m sorry, maybe this is a think noticed by millions of people, but she looks like the wife from Everybody Loves Raymond. And seeing her like this just makes me think Ray’s wife is having a midlife crisis.

  • KittieLynnNYC

    At least 20 Koosh balls were sacrificed to make this dress.

    • 60Gal

      That’s where they went!!! My kids loved them.

  • GregoireNYC

    Is this dress made of pipe cleaners?

  • kipper

    SHE SKINNED MUPPETS !

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    I really like this look on her. She likes unusual stuff and the things she chooses often look like they’re wearing her. This time she got it right! I love the simple, blunt cut hair as well. She’s picked up her game recently and this is a personal best IMO.

  • I am distracted by the castrated statue in the background… Not enough to not notice that I hate this dress though.

  • Lisalady161

    My husband saw this over my shoulder last night and laughed hysterically.

  • MilaXX

    This is weird and kind of ugly but I almost like it. I just wish the top didn’t look like it was made from bottle scrub brushes.

  • berkeleyfarm

    GTINYD

  • RubenKitT

    Gurl, Whut?

  • Sagecreek

    Why can’t this woman find a stylist who doesn’t secretly hate her?

  • Pennymac

    And after the event she reattached the dresses bodice to a telescoping pole and finished dusting her ceiling fan blades.

  • Loola234

    I kind of like it – it reminds me of the scarf my grandma knit me out of eyelash yarn – miss you every day, Granny!

    PLUS, Sarah was there with the Red Viper of Dorne – she wins!

  • Tracy_Flick

    There was a fad a couple of years ago for knitting scarves out of this fuzzy acrylic yarn. It looks like someone is still at it.

  • Pound of Salt

    I’m into the dress but that hair is so awful I can’t see anything else

  • nicer than i sound

    Whenever I see that fun fur eyelash yarn at craft store, I wonder how to use it, so this is helpful….

  • jenrsmall

    Muppet Hunters, Season 3 premiere!

  • Cheryl

    Hmm, I don’t want to like it, but I kind of do. Not crazy about the head here, not a fan of the hair, but the real crime is that lipstick.

    • numenah

      Matte pink lipstick looks dated and harsh.

  • The Versatile Chef

    The Trouble with Tribbles (2016)

    • Shawn EH

      The Trouble With Anemones!

  • happygolucky7

    She has great taste in women (she used to date Cherry Jones, before Holland Taylor), but damn, she has terrible taste in clothes.

  • boweryboy

    No. Armami Prive is usually so much better than this.

    • sundaynightaddict

      I still don’t believe this is Armani.

  • Imasewsure

    Oh no… not again

  • TRSTL

    Hmmmm…….. That bodice might work with a shorter skirt, maybe leather? My biggest objection is that hair, especially with the dress.

  • Gatto Nero

    The version on the model has fringe going down the arms. Not sure that’s an improvement — but the weird bodice elements end so abruptly on Sarah. It’s like she’s wearing some kind of trippy hippie vest over a plain dress.

  • unbornfawn

    Is that muppet road kill on her chest?

  • Kim Elmore

    What? No.

  • rag254

    She looks like my Barbie in the 1980s after I cut her hair and didn’t realize it wouldn’t grow back.

  • Claire

    Trolls ate her boobs?

  • OrangeChia

    Back to our regularly scheduled programming here, I see.

  • finisterre

    Christ. I wasn’t aware of the show and genuinely thought American Horror Story was referring to that bodice.

  • Kimberlini

    I don’t care for resting grumpy face.

  • rubyclaire

    This woman in that pose in that dress in front of that statue is somehow surreal.

  • oohsparkley!

    I like it on her.

  • ServoCrow

    It looks great on her.

  • tbone

    The dress is dumb and a little too long, but, that aside, her hair and lips look fabulous with it.

  • Muppet.

  • julnyes

    This made me grimace.

  • DeniseSchipani

    She has been attacked by a pillow in the teen bedroom/dorm-room decor section of Bed Bath & Beyond.

  • God help me, but I like it. Just enough Paulson-y punk.

  • mellusions

    Bringing up bad, bad memories of the faux fur knitting craze of the early ’00’s. *shudder*

  • largishbearishAtlish

    don’t they sell those scarves at the dollar store? (so the top was…5? 4? of them?)

    please take her ‘hair stylist’ out back and kill them.

    now.

  • Robert Sanchez

    Sarah haz sadz.

  • LibKat

    What is with this “I’m gonna part my hair in the center so everyone can admire my dark roots” thing? Does anyone know the answer?

  • crash1212

    When the only thing you notice in these photos is the genitalia of the SAG statues in the background, you know your stylist has FAILED.

    • understateddiva

      I was wondering if anyone was going to mention that, it’s like strangely virile Ken dolls.

  • marishka1

    I see she kept going with the “American Horror Story” theme

  • Danielle West

    Fraggle Rock.

  • SuzyQuzey

    I kind of like the crazy dress. Looks like a Muppet hugged her chest and died on it.

  • DrMomLovesLife

    What Muppet gave it’s life for the bodice of her dress? #Don’tWearFur

  • HeyGirlHey683

    MUPPET DRESS

    • LambeeBaby

      I thought “Muppet roadkill”

  • lucasuk82

    Sarah is one of my favs, I like that she often goes for edgy & not traditionally pretty hair. The shape of the skirt is divine, but that Creature Shop Couture bodice…I think it needed to pick between color or texture.

  • Fried Eggs

    Sorry I was too distracted by the chip off the background statue’s bulge.

  • oneWEIRDword

    She looks great. The colours are beautiful and she looks chic and fun.

  • Byodo-In

    I don’t usually like this shaggy frayed look, but pairs with a beautifully cut skirt this works.

  • masugawa

    I hate this look with a passion. The whole thing is just wrong and that hair, omg, So much NOPE.

  • NBG

    She’s punking us. That’s the only explanation.

  • A_guy01

    Skinned a Muppet and stole a skirt from the AHS season 3 wardrobe. #honeybadgerdontcare

  • Fräulein K.

    Fine with the dress, it’s weird and interesting and that tends to suit her. Nice colours. Don’t understand why she would want her hair to look like that, though.

  • Doll Furious

    Koosh ball realness.

  • Therese Bohn

    How could she do that to all those Muppets?

  • Gatto Nero

    There’s a link to this page in a March 2nd NY Times article on Sarah Paulson, in which she discusses her new role as Marcia Clark, who took a lot of criticism for her appearance during the O.J. trial:

    —-
    As an actress, Ms. Paulson could relate to the scrutiny. “Every time that you go anywhere on the red carpet, now there are websites dedicated to picking you apart, like or whoever those guys are,” she said. “And they are so mean.”
    —-

    The irony is that the link is to this Whiteboard page, with no actual criticism from T Lo. But clearly she’s aware.

    • I’m reading that article now and wanted to see which posting was featured. Odd.
