Fug or Fab: Emmy Rossum


It’s not that this isn’t nice, in its own way, exactly…

… but, and I know I’ve said this before, I really can’t take an outfit seriously if I know it once shared a marital bed with Blake Carrington.

Am I being dramatic?

    She has a cute figure, but this overwhelms her.

  2. Rachel

    All I can see is Gloria Swanson. Just a bit heavier makeup and she’d be ready for her close-up, Mr DeMille.

  3. Genny

    Burial Gown

  4. CakesOnAPlane

    She is half a century too young to be attending her own septuagenarian wedding.

  5. MizWeirdo

    …Are we sure those aren’t hideous wide-legged pleated pants? Because they kinda look like pants to me.

    • Mary

      Well it’s either pants or a slit but either way it needs to be hemmed about 2 inches. How the heck does she walk without falling flat on her face.

  6. Cristina

    It seems a little old for her, but I love the vintage-inspired design.

  7. Beth

    Maybe I’ve just had a long day, but she looks like Wallis Simpson.

    • Ladyblahblah

      Exactly! I’ve always thought she looked like someone but I couldn’t figure out who until I saw this picture.

    • anny

      Yes, Mrs. Simpson the Duchess of Windsor to a T. Particularly with her brows arched and the supercilious smile.

    • Marilu Bree

      Beth has had a long day of telling the facts. Walllis Simpson, eot!

    • Danna


  8. Lisa

    Oy vay. Something the grandmother of the bride would wear.

  9. pinkcheese

    Princess Leia, is that you? You’re looking a bit low-cut for Episode IV.

  10. christine christine

    Princess Leia? Is dat choo?

  11. Stefanie

    I have a hard enough taking Emmy Rossum seriously after those stupid Cotton commercials she did but then she goes and throws on this thing? Yap, never going to not laugh at her.

  12. Mary

    This is absolutely perfect for respectfully visiting a super conservative middle eastern country’s film board, if she stuffed a scarf down the front of it. Otherwise, I am bewildered why a beautiful young woman would opt to swath herself thus.

  13. Erin B

    After the tragedies this season on Downton Abbey, everyone’s angling to be cast as the American Cousin they’ll surely have to bring in to keep up ratings.

  14. Sandra

    The sleeves….and the sheerness…and the too-longness…and the hair. Yikes!

  15. tigers4us

    It’s Krystle, and it’s lovely at the same time! However, the style seems to be for an older woman.

  16. Vandalfan

    Lovely, if this was 1946.

    And, incidentally, on this date of that auspicious year, the immortal ALAN RICKMAN was born, and all the ladies rejoiced.

  17. perletwo

    The hair, the brows, the lips, the gown – Joan Crawford. That’s all I’m sayin’.

  18. Helen

    ALMOST fab. I like the ’40s styling on her. A lot!

    Just, the dress needs to be about three sizes smaller. She’s asea in this.

  19. Billie

    This could be great on someone else. Say, Meryl Streep. However, I would never want to be in a dress that would look a million times better on someone decades older than me…

  20. Susan

    The dress is way too large for her but she sure is cute.

  21. LA Lady

    That skank has stolen my window drapes and I want them back.

  22. Cynthia W

    Seriously, if you’re going to pick a person from Dynasty to emulate, why would you pick Krystal and not Alexis? WHO PICKS SOMEONE OTHER THAN JOAN COLLINS?

    In fact, I was just talking to a friend today about being bitchy, but not mean-bitchy, just in a standing up for yourself kind of way – like Joan Collins. And she said “You really can’t go wrong with being Joan Collins. Ever. Maybe we all need to start channeling that… What Would Joan Collins Do? WWJCD”.

    So, why would you pick to wear Krystal’s pajamas when you could go full-on Joan Collins?

    • Squirrel!

      You realize that Joan Collins and Jesus Christ have the same initials, right? Hmm…

  23. Bella

    Very 40′s Hollywood glamour. I like it.

  24. Elbyem

    Reach forward, extend both her arms, palms up, and it’s the ghost of Eva Peron. Don’t cry for her, Argentina.

  25. Bambi Anne Dear

    It’s Wallis Simpson.

  26. Chrissy

    I would like the hair and makeup with a younger more modern outfit or even a vintage style outfit that still had a younger feel.

  27. Faye

    Usually she looks so cute and youthful. I really don’t understand what happened here. This isn’t vintage-y, this is full-on costuming. And not in a good way.

  28. h² fashion

    I hate the look she always has on her face. She looks confused or miserable or something…just smile!


  29. Brian

    With a rhinestone-studded diamond embellishment she could pass for the daughter of one of SNL’s Sweeney sisters. Too bad we can’t see whether she’s got a spare mic in her purse.

  30. Gigi

    It’s like the summer version of Carol Burnett’s green velvet drapes-dress in that classic Gone With The Wind skit. It will really look beautiful when a breeze billows all that chiffon around the room.

  31. Sajorina

    I think it’s lovely!

  32. Amanda

    Totally Krystle, except for the hair, which belongs on Marion Cotillard’s head. The whole getup is waaayyy too old for her.

  33. Mimmio

    I was disturbed by this, and realize now why that’s the case: She looks like Wallis Simpson, Edward VIII’s lover/wife!

  34. jerkygirl

    Krystle Carrington + Wallis Simpson + Eva Peron + the 1940′s

  35. Mia

    Talk about being too old for her. This is more too old for her than Selena’s outfit was too old for HER. I’m making perfect sense, right?

  36. Ann

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

  37. jean

    I think her consumptive make-up ruins it. She is so vibrant on Shameless and here she looks waxen.

  38. mfarris70

    I beg to differ, it’s full-on Alexis as seen here. Take this junk and your blonde tramp and get out of my house!
