CMA Awards Fug Carpet: LeAnn Rimes


It’s a sign that LeAnn Rimes would be better off getting back into the recording studio and out of the tabloids that I saw these pics of her and thought, “ugh, what is SHE promoting?” I totally forgot that girlfriend CAN actually legitimately sing — in part because she has been acting of late like she’s someone who doesn’t have the talent to hold people’s attention on her own. Honey, you DO.

That being said, props for not bringing Ed Cibrian with you to pose coyly tonight. THAT being said….has your face always looked like this? THAT BEING SAID….

It’s VERY thoughtful of you to bring so many hankies for the evening’s potentially tear-struck winners and losers, but attaching them to your ass may have been a bridge too far.

    Oy. What is that dress? It’s like an explosion of dishwater ruffles. And yes, her face does look different–it’s narrower and very gaunt. Girlfriend does not look good. Yikes.

      actually she looks just like the grinch. she should have worn green. she said she was channelling Bridget Bardo. Bardo should slap her upside the head

      She is NOT pretty, she is NOT sexy,she is NOT trustworthy, she is NOT naturally thin, except for her hair. God did give her a lovely voice, that is what she should be concentrating on N try to revive a career that may not be salvageable. Money doens’t last forever when she spends on her gigolo like she does. go back to your tennis shoes and sweats for plane rides. QUIT TRYING TO BE SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE SO JEALOUS OF A BEAUTIFUL EX-WIFE. You may have been a speed bump at onw time but now you have the man, so take care of his unemployed butt

    I don’t like commenting on someone’s body, but she looks so unhealthy. It makes me sad.

    This is really embarrassing to admit but OOOOO I LIKE. I hate the bum ruffles but otherwise I really like it. I like the silhouette and the colour, and I think she’s wearing it really well. I’m not seeing a difference in her face from usual, except a lot more makeup than she normally wears.

    She looks a bit like a wrinkle-less, but not young Madame doll (so, a wrinkle-less, but not young Phyllis Diller?) pulling Renee Z.’s favorite expression. It’s very strange, and the dress and hair aren’t helping the cause.

    Has she been taking squinting lessons from Renee Zellweger?

    She’s getting the Zelleweger squint. Must be something about the starvation diet that encourages them to make that face.

    Sitting while wearing that must be quite uncomfortable.

    You know, if we remove the gosh-darn peplum and edit the bib so that it stops it’s ruffleage at the side seams, this would be pretty. And I usually don’t like holiday tablecloths as formals. I’m grateful it is lined.

    But can we talk about her dreadful, thin, scraggly looking hair? Can you say “hot oil treatment”? Like SJP, she really needs to trim the split ends. She could also rock a bob, or even be acceptable in a little gamine cut like Michele Williams.

    She’s wearing an elderly seahorse; never a good sign.

    facially, is it just me or does she look kinda like Lily Tomlin’s Ernestine character? and I’m not gonna lie, I like the dress. yeah, I said it.

    The dress is bad, but her hair… AIYEE!!! You, I never like to say (publicly, at least) “Girl, eat a sandwich!” but her hair is an indication of an unhealthy lifestyle – whether it’s because she needs to eat a more balanced menu, or just more. Dunno – but good hair comes from a good diet! (Much like good skin and good nails and good health, in general.) :)

    Back when Project Runway was still good, one of the judges (Kors?) said something I committed to memory: Ruffles on a garment indicate lazy design.

    And yes, I’ve used a strategically placed ruffle in my own clothing before. I use them to augment the parts of my body that could use the help (chest, hips — which in my case can use all the augmentation I can get).

    But this is Ruffle Overdrive. Rimes doesn’t need a single one of them; she’s “augmented” half to death already. I’d remove all the extra crap and redo this as a silver sheath, which would be good with her taxorexic complexion.

    And for the first time, I wish her a measure of forgiveness for whatever she thinks she is, that she’d do all this to herself.

    Be well, LeAnn. :(

      Have you seen her in a bikini? Girlfriend needs all the augmentation she can get.

        Never having to look at another photo of this woman in a bikini, ever again, is my little autumn-2011 gift to myself.

        I’m still very happy with it. :)

    Her face is beginning to look like Snoop Dogg when he’s real squinty high.

    Looks like a stegasaurus with a squint!

    Oh look – its Renee Zellweger’s long lost twin!

    She is slowly starting to morph into Cibrian’s ex. What is it that he does to a woman’s self esteem that makes them think they are so imperfect naturally that they need to augment themselves?

    Oh, and that dress is hideous to boot.

    Well, now we know what she’ll look like when she’s an old lady.

    Snoop Dogg’s squinty high! That’s totally it. I might like the dress better if I’d seen it after hangin out with Snoop for at least an hour.

    She looks like she’s been sucking lemons.

    Leann said on her Twitter page that she resembles Bridget Bardot..yes she said that. More like Bridget Bardont.

    She and Rene Z must have a squint off, and bitch needs a sandwich, for real. That ruffle at the hip there is to hide the bone that would be poking through the fabric otherwise.

    Dear sweet lord girl… NO! (Everyone who talks about fixing this is essentially making an entirely NEW dress from the fabric. Nothing is salvagable here – NOTHING, not even the fabric. LeAnn girl, just sing.)

    I think she looks like she’s gained a little weight back.

    Part of me wants to rip her for her annoying tweets about how much she eats and she is perfectly healthy, blah, blah, blah. But the other part of me realizes she has a real problem and she rationalizes it by talking about eating and not actually doing it, I have been there.
    I think that dress would be good minus the bum ruffle. The others can stay.
    I am quite surprised that no one has mentioned her new album – she does still sing. It is an album of old country cover songs. Her version of “Good Hearted Woman” isn’t half bad either.

      And she has quite a good voice! Isn’t it sad that she’s more talked about because of her fashion choices and her body issues rather than her voice? I think with this dress she looks like a Christmas ornament.

    Why is it that when most people lose weight their eyes get bigger…her’s just seem to have completely disappeared. It is very disturbing…………

    I’ve had a bit of a soft spot (or, let’s face it: a lady boner) for the charms of one Eddie Cibrian since he was Cole St. John on Sunset Beach, even through the douchebaggery and general eye squintery. But, girl, seriously, that is not good. No man’s worth that. Also why are wearing a dress made out of napkins if you never eat anything?

    Absolutely ghastly face.. What happened? She used to be so pretty.

      I think it’s a combo of weight loss and really bad eye-makeup. She’s always had the hooded eyes, but whoever has been doing her makeup lately has been piling on the eyeshadow in a way that makes her eyes look a lot smaller.

    she does technically have a new-ish album out something about being a lady (BAH)

      Yes and it’s a great album too — it’s too bad that it’s being overshadowed by her tabloid antics.

    Just all bad, the ruffles aren’t doing anything to hide how thin she is. She really needs to look into a burger or three.

    Ellen had someone on the CMA red carpet and the mic picked up a moment between LeAnn and Kellie Pickler. Kellie was making her way toward Ellen’s guy and LeAnn grabs her train and hisses “Can you not trip over this, uh {condescendingly} that would be great.” Kellie was just walking past her, not following close behind. It was like a hierarchical moment, and she was kinda Mean Girling Kellie. So different from her “I’m so happy I eat and smile all the time” in front of cameras persona.

    I really just want her to get off my internets please.

    My first reaction to this photo was to burst out laughing…it is SO bad. Horrible dress and I did see a close up of her eye makeup…good lord…shiny silver eye shadow, bright berry red lipstick and THAT dress! But its LeeAnn Rimes…what do you expect? Couldn’t happen to a more deserving candidate.

    I could do without a few of those ruffles but otherwise the dress is OK. But I do see breast implant evidence in the first pic and some overly thin arms which is a shame.

    Love @Fifie’s “stegasaurus with a squint”.

    My feeling is that the gown is not her style.
