Julie Fugwen


It is definitely possible that this is one of those dresses that looked great and delicate and funky in person, but which photographs too clunky for my taste.

I keep thinking she snacked on someone’s scrap bin in the limo and then threw up on herself.

    That’s evil, evil magic. It’s a dress that makes Julie Bowen (of all people) look STOUT.

    I can’t get past those shoes… is there an air hole in the toe???

    The dress is meh. It doesn’t fit very well around the waist area and it needs to be shortened. She’s looked worse though :D

    Dress looks great, and she looks great. Needs a lighter, younger shoe, but big deal! must be a slow news day.

      OK, and a shorter hemline.

      But I can’t get on board with fugging it. It’s interesting, textured, Julie Bowen is a blonde who looks great in black, and the sheer detail across the neckline is lovely. As is her expression! But not her shoes (see above. And snarky comment about shoe air holes, possibly.)

    She looks great and always seems like she is having fun. What is not to like?

    I find it terribly unflattering and overworked.

    I do not care for the sheer detail across the neckline. The line it creates across her neck looks funny.

    I did like the rest of it, although now that it’s been mentioned, the dress does make her look short. Maybe just shorten it a tad and swap out the shoes?

    The sheer detail and pleating need to go.

    It was also in the Monique Lhullier line as Reese’s dress…

    It’s not exactly the same – no mesh, 2 slits vs 1… but IMHO neither look good…

    The dress is too long and too fussy on her. It seems ill-fitting around the waist too and the shoes are not nice. The sheer detailing at the neck might have worked without all the extra stuff on the front of the dress but otherwise….no thanks! The dress length really puts years on her!

    Looks like Reese snapped up the better monique lhuillier dress!

    Contrary to most of the above, I think she looks very elegant. IMO he problem with the dress itself is that, according to nowadays’ fashion standards, it’s perhaps a little bit too serious for the red carpet and a little bit too fancy for a funeral. It belongs back in the days where you wore black to everything not being the office or the beach.

    I like the dress & the shoes, but I would’ve loved it on someone else, like Michelle Obama!

    This is an Unfug It Up… Shorten it two inches and remove the sheer stuff (although at least the sheer stuff covers her boniness). Oh, and change those shoes. There! Lovely!

    Do her shoes even fit?

    What is fug about this? It’s not fab but it’s certainly not fug. What does it matter that it’s not nipped in at the waist or showing more leg? She looks GREAT!

    I wish they had just chopped off the dress to where the slit begins, then I think it would look great.
    Also, I am digging the shoes but perhaps not the colour. Could’ve done with bright coloured shoes to give the ensemble a bit of a pop. Otherwise it all ends up looking a bit too sombre.
