Malin Fugerman

This started out fairly dishy.

Then it turned into a series of weird optical illusions: I keep thinking it’s a jumpsuit, possibly because of the awkward length; then, I realize it’s possible the length only looks awkward because of the shoes she chose, and THEN I get completely transfixed by THAT oddball effect. Because the nude upper looks like she’s in bare feet resting on black platforms, I get distracted trying to figure out why her toes are glued together, before remembering they’re INSIDE a shoe, and… y’all, I should not have to work this hard. It’s fashion. But it feels like physics homework.

    She looks like a formally-folded napkin. Equally a snooze- her performance on the ironically-titled “Awake”.

    • Mel Duff

      My fault- I had her confused with Laura Allen. Google them and tell me if I’m crazy.

      • fiatluxury

        i feel you, but Laura Allen was so incredibly great on Terriers that I forgive her for Awake. Girlfriend can act if she’s got something to work with.

        As for Malin, there’s something so mesmerizingly Wonder-Woman-Gets-Married about the bodice I can’t be bothered to look all the way down to the shoes.

      • Sajorina

        You’re right… She DOES look like Laura Allen!

  2. Libby

    Those shoes make her feet look like hooves – like a shiny, pretty centaur.

    • Francesca

      Even though the dress looks like it shrank in the dryer, I could forgive it if the shoes weren’t so ding dang ugly.

  3. Kara

    Those shoes literally look like hooves. She’s Pan.

  4. Annie

    Hooves… or a gesiha girl who binds her toes together to make very small feet.

  5. TaraMisu

    Ugh those shoes….. i just can’t with this dress. I think Mel Duff summed it up nicely, a formally folded napkin.

  6. neiges

    It’s like she’s standing on two canoes.

  7. Amber

    Those shoes are horrid. They’re making my feet hurt.
    But I’m actually more interested in the coat (?) on the lady behind her. That’s a lot of color.

  8. jjdaddyo

    Don’t like the shiny, shiny dress. I am old enough to remember Qiana from the first time around.

  9. Cranky Old Batt

    This could have been so elegant but who ever did it missed the mark on just about everything. I wonder if this is an off the rack bad knock off of something great, or something great she had redesigned into this hot mess.

    And those shoes alone should get her laughed off the planet.

    Also, is she preggers? Or is it just an illusion cast by this mistake of a gown?

    From the waist up it’s fine, but from the waist down it’s a disaster. Stylist fail.

  11. Sajorina

    This was a great look that completely fell apart at the start of the slit! If the hem of that dress ended where the slit starts & she had worn strappy sandals in either ivory or silver, this would’ve been a Well Played! So, FAB from the thighs up, Malin, and FUG from the start of the slit down!

  12. kindakute

    This has a Dynasty feel to it.

  13. R

    I wish this had no slit and was several inches longer with a slight train/dip at the back.

  14. Helen

    She totally looks like Laura Allen. Which would be great for anyone who isn’t Malin Akerman. Anyway, I think the dress could work, with broad straps and different shoes. I give it a 5/10. Not horrendous, but could be far better, and easily so.

  15. Girlin

    Yuck – this looks terrible and I think deep down with her awkward stance Malin agrees. Sack the stylist dearie… The shoes are dreadful – the canoe reference above is spot on. The slit in the dress is really tacky and too high and the boob split isn’t as classy as the one Eva Longoria had. All in all….No!

  16. Ms.A

    Damn that slit!
    And those shoes.

  17. Shiitake

    Hate those hooves.

  18. katkin74

    All I saw at first was bad Photoshop – like she was floating in mid air with hoove-shadows. Then, I burst out laughing.

  19. TonyG

    Touché, katkin. She is soooooo floating! LOL.

  20. Lily1214

    I agree, the shoes are a problem. She wears the gown extremely well and looks great in it but her feet look odd because of the shoe colors? Or what is it exactly?
