if the object was to look like your torso and neck are covered by a virulent strain of black mold i would say she succeeded…
The problem here is that it’s too Project Runway.
Loose the neck piece and the black netting and you might have a solid 6 of a dress.
Or a solid 6 of a high-waisted skirt?
Lord I am showing my age. When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was Cheryl Tiegs.
Oh my god me too!!! On Cheryl though this dress would have been almost forgivable (not attractive, but forgivable)
Right on target. Cheryl Tiegs it is.
I don’t actually mind the top and the lace. What I don’t like is the fit around the stomach and hips which makes her look fat.
Uhmmm, I think you could say that the fit isn’t as flattering as it should be or maybe that the shape isn’t the best for her, but it would take a lot more than an ill-fitting dress to make her look fat.
I agree. It’s not like she IS fat, but this dress actually makes her look like that..it’s not really HER dress
OK, time to close out of the pro-ANA websites and get thee to a shrink immediately.
great face and hair, terrible from the neck through torso, lovely clutch. so, scrolldown fugglecoaster.
She looks like she’s being strangled by black thorns.
Makeup looks great though.
she should send this dress to JLo
Catherine Zeta-Jones called. She wants her dress back.
Would that collar/neck thing not drive you berserk!?
Lace and then lace and then lace and oh yeah Mermaid!
Ooh, a game for fashionistas – instead of duck, duck, goose, we have lace, lace, mermaid!
She’s so pretty and the makeup is the bomb. This dress is not her friend, though. Makes her look hippy which I know she isn’t.
Makeup is good, and she is so pretty & this dress isn’t showing that off!
I’d rather see some commentary on what her bff Phoebe Tonkin wore… Because that has me confused.
not the best mermaid shape, does this girl have a waist or not? if not, then choose an empire waist instead of mermaid.
It shortens her neck, flattens her boobs and widens her waist. Also, I HATE exposed zippers on anything other than maybe streetwear. You’ve got evening gown and metal zipper, it’s like prime rib and ketchup. Ew.
Hate the exposed zippers! Yes, prime rib and ketchup, the waiter would give you a wilting glare.
Why those earrings with this dress? They’re nearly invisible.
Very appropriate for a zombie movie since it looks like the Black Death climbing up her neck…. U.G.L.Y.
So her top half is ready for her free skate at the ’98 winter olympics and her bottom half is ready to walk down the aisle as the corpse bride.
Neither half flatters nor makes any sense. Go home and try again girl.
Pretty girl, hideous dress. Just hideous. There is not one element worth saving.
Boring! It was a better bridal dress before she dyed it black!
I want her eyes…but not that dress…
Beautiful, but is it too formal for the occasion?
the piece across the neck looks like it’s trying to choke her.
Shame on Philip Armstrong for that ripply zipper!That’s a quality control problem that could have been avoided with a strip of interfacing on the fashion fabric. The zipper has rippled because the fashion fabric has srtetched and zippers don’t.
Wouldn’t you think for the money that dress probably cost that they could set a damn zipper? I saw those ripples and became outraged. It’s not like they don’t have any black tricot interfacing around. Shoddy workmanship.
The question of who is appropriately dressed emerges in the last photo of her glancing over her shoulder as Miss torn stockings and dirty top discusses the world with Mr shredded blue jean cuffs as the three await entry, all standing on the same red carpet.
Aw, give them a break. You try keeping up your wardrobe as a zombie!
I quite like her as an actress (mostly because she was awesome in I Am Number Four, and I love that book series!), but this is not as flattering as she thought it was. Ditch the extensions & get a new stylist!
This just looks really awkward and uncomfortable. This might be Cher’s dress, but no one else’s.
I know ya’ll will toss rotten tomatoes my way, but I don’t mind the black fungus top. *duck-n-cover*
I cannot, however, abide the MORE BLACK LACE. Perhaps a nice black crepe for the skirt?
Not flattering in the least.
How she manages to look like a different successful starlet (Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, and Kristen Stewart) with each new angle is fascinating. Not great for her career unless she wants to be a stunt double.
That’s an exorcism dress.
That’s unflattering. Straight on I can’t see any of her curves. It looks like the lace has crawled up and is trying to choke her.
There’s not even a hint of a waist. Unflattering is the word.
I should have read down first–I completely agree about the choker. It’s the worst part of a no good, very bad dress.
Lace + illusion netting + visible zipper + mermaid hem = why did this lovely young woman choose to wear this mess?
That is one ugly dress.
I kind of like the top, but the skirt and that zipper are hideous.
I feel like I have seen this dress before. When I was little (the 80s). In white, maybe?
I really, REALLY despise the zipper with the nude mesh, just make it a halter already and be done with it.
Ummm…No. Just no.
Are those zombies in the last picture?!
Zombies, production assistants… tomato, tomahto.
Then, suddenly, the dress started to grow…
I want to like this, but just looking at that lace on her neck is making me itchy. There is no way she wouldn’t want to rip that shit off halfway through the night.
That was the first thing I saw, too. She looks like she’s being literally choked by her lace choker.
ITA, it looks incredibly uncomfortable. Like the collar is a sentient being, ever so slowly choking her.
Where’s Uncle Nick when you need him: “Look at my whickety whack!”
Not to be too gross, but I’ve had a fungal infection in my sinuses for months and I can imagine that it looks very similarly to the bodice of this dress.
I want to go down to the garment district right now, to every fabric store, and burn all the illusion netting. RIGHT. NOW.
I’ll testify that it was an accident. (Wear something flame retardant.)
Makes her look positively shapeless, and I’m sure she isn’t.
She has pretty hair. There is nothing, absolutely nothing good about this dress, it’s just cheap and hideous.
Yawn. The dress does nothing for her shape. No one is blown away by no bra, and low cut front. Black lace has been done so much it is also boring. Yawn.
Flesh eating bacteria in dress form.
There’s some fungus among us! and its a turtleneck.
“Help! My dress is trying to eat me!”
Ugh – a different neckline would have been a 100% improvement. And what does she have in the comically tiny clutch? One key?
Help! I’m being strangled!
Something is wrong at the top: doesn’t flatter her at all.
Great face of makeup: I almost couldn’t recognize her, though!
As for the dress, my main gripe is how short-waisted her torso looks: if the sheer bodice was instead 3 inches longer before joining that skirt, the effect would be much more proportional. As is, it kinda makes her look thick-waisted, since the skirt comes above her natural waist.
