“Hi, I’m Rosario Dawson, and I am clearly punishing myself for something.”
That’s some serious fug if it makes Rosario Dawson look both wide and matronly.
That dress was last seen worn by the Mother of the Bride somewhere in Peoria.
HAHAHA! Speaking of Mother of the Bride, Jessica. I, too, have finally painfully watched REVENGE and cannot wait for your update on the Insinuation and Grayson (what do they do, exactly) Global? Everyone in the blogosphere is saying BLOWUP the stupid Stowaway. Please come back. Although, its super painful and Oscars are only weeks away…
My HUSBAND ( who has been known to let me walk around Target with a chocolate lip liner….we had shared a Baskin Robins cake bite before we went in! DON’T JUDGE)….. said ” She is so beautiful…. who put her in that awful thing?”
I love your husband!
Chocolate Lip Liner! LOL!!!!
Rosario Dawson is as hot as hell (and used to date Joshua Jackson. I hate myself for remembering this). And yet here she is, looking like she’s in a mother of the bride dress.
Now I’m all distracted by trying to decide how Pacey felt dating Dawson. AH!
Seriously! We know she deserves better than this.
And I’d forgotten about the existence of Joshua Jackson until now.
As I wrote over on Jessica Chastain’s photo (and about a BILLION times on Twitter last night) Rosario and Jessica should have switched dresses. Rosario has the va-va-VOOM figure to really fill out Jessica’s dress, and Jessica has the (relative) lack of curves to properly work Rosario’s dress.
I mean, those tiny cap sleeves are just too small for Rosario, and the peplum emphasizes her already ample (in a sexy way) hips.
NO! JUST NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
I almost wish Jessica Chastain was wearing this.
While watching last night, I reacted to this such that my husband yelled “are you ok?” from the other room.
Oh no. Roland Mouret (sp?) makes such beautiful and architecturally interesting dresses but this does not look good on her at all. What a shame!
I… I don’t even… HOW?
How does a woman who looks like Rosario Dawson wind up looking like this?
I need sugar. Quickly.
I don’t understand it either. She is beautiful, has an enviable body and probably had her pick of gorgeous gowns. I’m bewildered. Seriously, I just don’t get it. I hate those sleeve things with a fiery passion.
I could be onboard with this if they just changed the top of the bodice a little and did something with those hideous cap sleeve things. I think the color is lovely on her. Also like the suggestion above that she change outfits with JChas…that might have worked out nicely.
If a dress can make Rosario Dawson looks bulky and boxy, there truly is no hope for mankind.
I was so sad when I saw this on her. It’s so depressing and it makes her look do dumpy. You’re so gorgeous, Rosario!
Rosario’s short-waisted and thickish around the middle. Except for the colour, this dress is an example of exactly what she should not wear.
Why not find something that emphasizes her beautiful legs and/or bust? This dress is just perverse.
Amen! She has a lovely figure, but she does indeed have a short thick waist (and she has my sympathy, because I suffer from the same).
I liked this? Not in this terrible washed-out photo, but on TV. The color was fantastic on her. I could do without the hip wings but it’s not a fug in my book.
“Seafoam” is nobody’s friend.
The dress might be okay, but boy, do I think it ruins her figure.
My first thought on this is that she’s pregnant. Pure speculation, but (and I speak from experieince) the first thing that happens to your body when preggo is that your waist goes out the window and you look like a box before the belly really starts to come. Maybe it’s just the dress, but it takes some work to make Rosario look like a box.
I wondered the same thing. I can’t tell if it’s just the way the dress is falling, or if it’s a crease or shadow, but she does look a bit rounded. So if she’s not pregnant, it’s a dress that’s giving her the appearance of being pregnant, and if she is pregnant, it’s still not flattering. A bra with some lift may have helped matters.
Here’s a bikini shot from about a week ago:
Reminds me of Joan Cusack’s line about high school reunions from Grosse Pointe Blank: “it was as if everybody had swelled”.
It would work much better if it were tailored to fit her. The arm holes, bodice, and flat shoulderpads that substitute for sleeves make the top look two sizes too small.The neckline is choking her. The peplum is wrong because it starts not at her midriff or waist but somewhere vaguely in between. The skirt is stretched across her hips.
But I love the seafoam!
This is the kind of dress you encounter in ABUNDANCE when you are skimming through the clearance rack at a store like Saks, hoping to find something decent to wear to an event, on a budget. Your mind quickly thinks, “Ugh, who in the name of God would wear this awful thing?” for about 1/4 second as you flick the hangers, simultaneously wondering at its original cost and massive fugliness. And a couple steps down, this is the kind of dress that keeps Ross Stores in business: “Look, it’s a [blah blah blah designer] and it only costs $39.95!” Hideous. Fugly. Fire your stylist, girl! You deserve a pretty, adorable dress that shows you off!
