Is this an interesting pattern…
… or did she put the wrong kind of bug bomb in her closet?
That has to be an homage to Tracy Turnblad, from the first “Hairspray” movie, the one with Ricki Lake and Divine and Deborah Harry and Jerry Stiller and John Waters and JOSH CHARLES IN A BIT PART SQUEEE!! Sorry. Seriously, though: does this evoke Tracy Turnblad’s AutoPrincess dress for anyone else?
This dress majorly creeps me out … I had to turn away from the screen.
Cora: Yes. Yes it does. Please return the key to my brain when you’re done with it.
Heh, I was all “That’s a striking pattern” (in a positive way) until it started to creep me out. Creepy-crawlies are bad. They don’t make me want to look at you or your clothes. She does look nice from the shoulders up, though.
Ewwwwwwww. Why would you want to look like a picnic under siege?
are they ants or tarantulas? either way, too creepy crawling for me.
Fug to the nth degree.
@Cora. Totally Tracy Turblad. Here’s a video clip from Hairspray featuring the dress: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXG-Yx2zHGw
I feel itchy just looking at it.
YES! It made me think of the roach dress too.
Cora, that was my first thought! Tracey Turnblad all the way. Only Tracey wore it with a lot more panache. This is just gross.
It does look like it’s crawling with insects, and yet, I still really like it.
Bugs! Shrimp! Flying fetuses! The fabric pattern is quite unfortunate, because the cut of the dress is good.
Yeah, not fond of the roach dress but damn, she’s got some good hair.
That dress gives me serious creeps. Yuk. She does indeed have nice hair, though.
The dress is cute fitwise and shapewise. She is lovely.
The print makes me want to scream, “Run! RUN! It landed on your crotch!! They’re crawling out of your hair! RUUUUUUUN!!!!”
My first thought was “Are those ants?” so I’m going with “fug.”
uh, oh. In the minority, but I really like it!
You know somebody needs a new stylist when she looked better in her sparklicious and nearly nude DWTS costumes than she does on the red carpet.
Ew ew fleas bedbugs EW.
I kinda liked it until you said that … now I can’t unsee giant roaches.
@ Everyone, Tottally TRACY TURNBLAD!! Love it only for that.
Ugly print and way too matronly. Just…ick.
I did not know that the makers of Raid had gotten into the fashion business.
This dress could be a sartorial embodiment of the Rorschach inkblot test : it’s a mask, it’s a foetus, it’s a jellyfish, it’s a …aaargh, get some spray and kill it!
That ickiness aside, Julianne looks good here and more like her actual age – like Dianna Agron, she chooses some matronly, ageifying outfits.
Shes only 23 this makes her look 30
I don’t know why, but just reading the name “Julianne Hough” in the title of a post makes me think it’s an definite FUG and I am right every time!!!
don’t like the dress pattern, but its fits pretty well. Also, her hair is looking seriously good, and her makeup is better than it sometimes is.
Seacrest is just too old for her and her clothes are reflecting his influence!
Perhaps a Tracy Turnblad Tribute, since her bro Derek is paired with Ricki Lake for the new season of DWTS. Can’t be accidental, it’s the same background color and everything!
Just saw a magazine ad for Footloose, and initially mistook Julianne for Jennifer Aniston – there’s a similarity in profile. She’s playing Ariel, the rebellious high schooler. Could be a potential Fug the fromage?
I hate large spiders, and occasionally get them in my room around this time of year. Upon seeing this dress, I immediately and involuntarily checked my surroundings for them.
