We wanted to switch out the caption above for “Naomie Harris is named Miss Road Sign 2016 at the annual Road Sign Manufacturer’s convention in Las Vegas, Nevada” just to see if anyone would notice or believe it. Because it would be pretty believable, right?

On the one hand, congrats for wearing something more out-there than pretty much anything on the CFDA Awards red carpet. On the other hand, we feel like there’s a SLICK SURFACES AHEAD warning coming at any second. On the third hand (hey, there are two of us, after all), it’s just plain ugly. Seriously. Cover her face with your hand if you have to, because she’s pretty enough to make anything look better than it is, and really look at that dress. That is very not good, you guys.

    I think we have another entry for the 2016 Worst Dress Contest.

  • Lily

    I’d say a bit more color on her face is in order. Otherwise, this is a case of the wearer elevating the dress. Pretty sure she’s about the only person on the planet who can make this one work.

    • Bellatrix Lestrange

      Yeah…this is pretty tacky for her level…but she’s got this elegance about her that I cannot place her in worst dressed

  • Bland Gland

    It’s really, really unflattering on her, which is just ridiculous.

  • 3boysful

    Perhaps it’s my age, but whenever I see a tight, sleeveless dress with a short asymmetrical hemline, my mind immediately goes to the Flintstones. (This is not a compliment.)

  • charlotte

    I’m afraid Mugler is becoming the new Stella.

    • AnneElliot

      I thought it was Stella at first!

  • Anna

    The event sounds like a blast! Who doesn’t love cocktails with women in comedy?

    The dress, however, belongs on an extra in a Bel Biv Devoe video.

    • quiltrx

      Props for BBD reference (and now I am humming ‘Poison’…)

    • NBG

      So assured that at least some of the BK’s here are my age.

      “She’s so fly, she’ll drive you right out of your mind.”

      Yup, that would be the right dress for that video!

  • tryinnottobetoojudgy

    Not even you, Naomie, not even you.

  • Michele

    Is this the new trend after Emma Watson’s recycled dress, to look like MAYBE you’re recycling although you’re probably not? Because I don’t care how they try to spin it (ha, get it?), synthetic fabric is uncomfortable in the summer and it just looks cheap.

  • clatie

    An homage to the part of the 80’s that no one is missing.

  • Beardslee

    She reminds me a little of La Beckinsale. Both possess an elegant, classic beauty – yet both are capable of vulgarity from the neck down.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Wow. That’s rough.

  • Unconventional materials challenge. It’s sporty and sexy and whatnot, but it’s also cheap AF.

  • All that ugliness and side cutouts. Nope.

  • AC Simons

    From the look on her face, she’s not crazy about this either.

  • I didn’t think covering her face would make a difference. But it did.

  • Jessica Freeman

    This is KStew’s dress.

    • kimmeister

      I was trying to think of who might make this work, and I think you’ve nailed it. Naomie certainly has the body for it, but not the edge.

  • TamiSeattle

    Taxi Cab Challenge

  • Gatto Nero

    She’s beautiful, but that dress is altogether too tricky.

  • tereliz

    So jealous of Naomi’s innate ability to elevate even the trashiest outfit to something chic rather than looking like she’s wearing a “Sexy Construction Worker” Halloween Costume.

  • quiltrx

    It looks like it *wanted* to be a better, fiercer dress, but it just didn’t work out. I can relate to you, poor dress.

  • Trixie A. Cooper

    I usually hate any yellow dress but she looks great in this color. But that is all.

  • Lisalemann

    She truly is magical. On anyone else it would look like a dress from the dumpster dive Project Runway challenge.

  • DeniseSchipani

    Those slick surfaces ahead you mention are her legs.Shiny! What a terrible dress on a gorgeous woman.

  • jen

    Why Naomie? Why???

  • Shawn EH

    I’d say the traffic cone isn’t transformed enough?

  • NellGwynn

    I learnt today that Naomie is 39. Still not sure I believe that. What an amazing face. This dress would look worse on anybody else than it does on her, but that’s the best I can say about it.

    • AnneElliot

      39??? I’m bowing down.

    • Eliza Jardine

      What?? She’s also drinking Chrissy Tiegen’s magical “boxed water” apparently.

  • MilaXX

    She’s thisclose to making this work, but yeah that dress is tacky & fug

  • I wish this was a crop top with some wide-legged pants, because I was on board until the waist area.

  • Kaonashi

    She really elevates everything she wears because this getup is almost cute to me.

  • A_guy01

    Naomie, please send this back to Lea Michelle so she can direct traffic. You’re better than this.

  • cicada

    Cutouts and asymmetrical hemline? She’s almost selling it but it’s hard to overcome a dress this bad.

  • Not even you Naomi.

  • Bowildhaze

    She is so pretty, wish she wasn’t wearing my gym sweat cloth as a dress.

  • julnyes

    That dress is heinous, and even the power of Ms. Harris can’t save it.
