Mildfug Pierce


“Hello, world. You think I’m dressing older? You think I got dowdy? Well GET A LOAD OF THIS.

“Oh, and P.S., sorry Mildred Pierce was so interminable. And that we claimed she invented chicken restaurants. And surf-and-turf. And that Melissa Leo only gave one line reading the whole time. ¬†And that the last line was, ‘Let’s get stinko.’ But admit it: After that thing was over, you WANTED to get stinko. Plus, I gave you some naked Guy Pearce. And now, I give you my breasts on a white platter. You’re welcome.”

    I see nothing but a formal leotard for the gymnast who wants to attend a dinner party.

    And even worse, the breastshield doesn’t even cover all of her tata’s. Can’t they at least get that proportion right?

    I don’t like the dress, do like the formal shorts, and love her hair/makeup. Her face is beautiful these days.

    Thank you for calling out Julie Bowen. No one is that skinny from chasing their kids around. I hate it when celebs act all casual about their awesome bodies; they show up at awards shows and say, “I eat cheeseburgers all the time!” Lies. I liked it when Julia Louis Dreyfuss fessed up a few years ago at the Emmys: “I had egg whites today.” She didn’t seem excited about it, but she admitted it. On topic, though, Kate looks great, though I’m not wild about the first dress. I wish it was either all white or all cream in the non-black parts; the tri-color breakdown is distracting.

    It looks like she’s wearing a bib made out of paper mache. Creepy, to say the least. Love the formal shorts, mostly because they’re not insanely tiny like the kinds Cameron Diaz wears.

    I strongly dislike tha dress! I love her and she dresses so nicely normally! She didn’t need this “stunt” to prove she still has it! I had to do a double take of th epic on People’s site. It looked like she had ribs removed.

    Ugh no!! The breastplate is horrid! Believe it or not I don’t hate the formal shorts…. I just really like that the woman has curves and hasn’t dieted herself into skeletor territory.

    Regardless of how many times she’s been naked on film, I always think of her as a quietly elegant, tasteful and sophisticated woman, so when she dresses sexily, I don’t like it. And, this dress would just look good on no one.

    I’m wondering if I would have liked the dress better if it had different colors–like bright, splashy colors. Though I don’t think anything could save the breast plate.
    And so much YES to calling out celebs on their lies about what they eat and how much they exercise to look the way they do. This is particularly true when said actress is noticeably heavier when she starts out and then fades down to nothing (Jennifer Aniston, Courteny Cox, Cameron Diaz, etc, etc, etc). No one wants to hear how you just naturally weigh 98 pounds.

    The clothes are just “meh” for me. I don’t hate the dress, although it looks sort of ’90s to me. I’m never going to be hip to formal shorts (no pun intended). But I do kind of hate her hair and makeup. She doesn’t look like herself anymore.

    At this point, she could show up in tin foil and bunny slippers and I’d be all “Ohhh she’s great!” because I have THAT MUCH of a HUGE CRUSH on her.

    However- standing back and looking at this objectively- the colorblock dress would play better if it was 2 colors, not 3. Make the breastplate the same color as the lighter color on the rest of the dress and SHAZAM. That’s how a curvy woman rocks it.

    The shorts- eh. They’re not the worst thing I’ve seen, even today.

    I hate that dress! The bib makes her boobs look weird. Which is probably not what she was going for. She looks better in the black outfit, though “formal shorts” is a trend i think should never have happened.

    Kate is wearing the hell out of that dress! Her body is amazing. With that being said, I’m not a big fan of the breast portion of the dress. I think the formal shorts outfit is cute. Love the shoes.

    That 3-tone body girdle is SO ghastly!
    Winslet wears the shorts suit considerably well, considering that it’s a shorts suit, and is paired with high heels.
    But her hair and makeup, or is it a reconfigured face (noting the eyes, and bridge of nose in particular, also reshaped cheeks), really REALLY are not serving her beauty well. The work has left her distinct loveliness on the cutting room floor. Is it just bad makeup and photo angles?

    HIDEOUS dress. And you’ll never get me to believe she hasn’t jacked her face up.

    @Alix – this may not make a believer out of you, but go to laineygossip for some shots of KW from this fest… If she does mess with her face, it’s certainly a minimalist approach – the kind of minimalist that pretty frankly doesn’t leach knife or needle (maybe dermabrasion) touch her skin.

    Sports bra? Really? Nobody has yet said the words “looks like she’s wearing a sports bra”? :)

    I agree with those who fug the boob platter; yes, the middle of the dress should be all one color. But what bothers me more, actually, is her head. Her hair looks brassy (particularly in the black outfit), and her eyebrows are way too dark for that hair color. Her makeup is also not working for me, particularly the nude lip.

  21. Sandra

    I’m no judge of what people might have done to their faces by professionals ranging from surgeons to make-up artists, but KW’s doesn’t look like her younger self at all. The skin looks too tight, especially around the eyes. And blonde doesn’t really suit her. The clothes are hideous. She needs to go full-on Old Hollywood glamour. She does have a slammin’ bod and she should be proud of putting in the reps in the gym.

    Unearned air of superiority, a dress that screams “trying to hard,” back plastic sugery, and bad hair – must be Winslet.

    Fug. She is sooo blonde these days. I don’t remember her being so blonde. The too-tight boobies are the star dress is yucky. I can’t even think about Formal Shorts (we’ve decided that’s an oxymoron, right?). And I just hate armpit cleavage.

    That gal has one heckuva figure, and both outfits show it off. The first one doesn’t even have too much of a sausage casing effect, but the racer back sports bra ruins it. The upside-down sweetheart neckline doesn’t even fit her breasts. If it had been a straight line, or even a single downward curve, I’d love it.

    The second one is formal shorts and therefore ridiculous. And now I understand the complaints about navy with black- or is the shirt just a different, clashing shade of black?

    Her body does look pretty fabulous. Too bad her dress reminds me so strongly of those big bikini lady t-shirts. You know the ones. They have the cartoon torso of some skinny chick in a skimpy bikini, so it looks like your head is on this anatomically impossible body. My 70 year old aunt wore one on the 4th of July. I shouldn’t have that mental image when looking at this beautiful, fit young woman.

    I saw this over the weekend and just stared and stared. I like the black and white, but that breastplate is the worst. And I remember a while back reading an interview with Kate (Vanity Fair?) where she said she was completely amenable to working out if there was a glass of chardonnay on the other end of things. Instantly loved her for that.

    I agree with Amber above that I might have liked the dress better if it were in some brighter/other colors, provided the sports bra-esque scooping were 86′ed. The dress (and the papier mache comment above) makes me think of that Marilyn Manson video where he wears the boob suit. Ew. I just grossed myself out.

    I like the dress. It’s so refreshingly different from most of what I’ve seen on red carpets this year, and I appreciate the hell out of that. I also love that she looks so happy. Happy is a great look, whatever you’re wearing and whatever shape you’re in. As for how she’s built so much muscle, I don’t know her life. Maybe she and her kids are incredibly active and athletic instead of spending all hours sitting in front of a screen (like me). It isn’t impossible, depending on lifestyle, but who knows. She looks great and I’m happy for her.

    This is a Stella McCartney dress and this makes all of them that I did not like. She seems to have no sense of the female body. That white breast plate/sports bra effect is well, stoopid. I think Stella McCartney is NOT a designer I admire.

    I can’t get on board with this. It’s not that it’s too tight. I love me a fitted dress (and it’s not crotch short, so it works). It’s just the boob part. It’s wrong.

    In two colours (grey/black) she’d shake the planet, YES she has curves, great woman curves, she looks like she eats (really eats well/healthily) and works out. But the Eyebrows/hair… good lord woman, you are not Joan Crawford, you don’t want to be… now stop that and sit in the corner!

    I haaaaaaaaaaate that dress. SO SO much. I don’t even know why, I just know I do. It’s like a terribly Robert Palmer video throwback. Regarding the gym and whatnot, let’s not accuse her of lying, eh? I’m a mom who chases after her kids and doesn’t go to the gym, and while I feel guilty about it, I’m lucky enough to get away with it for now. Lady legs that are in super high heels just look good, generally.

    That dress is a miracle of color block trompe l’oeil. I don’t really like it though, but the visual trick of boob-inflating/lifting waist-nipping is pretty impressive.

    Well, Kate’s clearly loving herself stupid. I’ve loved Kate as an actress since Heavenly creatures, but this horrible Stella McCartney dress is a blight on humanity (i hate it that much).

    Agreed on the sports reference. She looks ready to do the Tour de France.
    But thanks for pointing out that the dress was three colours – I thought the white thing was a breast protector from more see-through fabric. Now I see the error of my ways.
    I suppose Spandex is as Spandex does

    This Stella McCartney dress IS a blight on humanity, and it’s been showing up on red carpets for more than one season. Heck, Penelope Cruz wore it in navy and in an appropriate size, and it still looked like she was stretching the hell out of some spandex tablecloth attached to a sports bra. I thought Body Glove got done in the 80′s, but now we’re seeing it all over the place and really, three decades ago no one was deluded enough to wear it anywhere real clothes were required.

    .. I wouldn’t give many the benefit of the doubt for a dress like this! but Kate Winslet is terrific, in my book, so she gets huge leeway, from me. Kate is intelligent and is fully capable of a milder-than-Swinton (hey, who isn’t?!) subversive statement to ‘F’ashion. I see this dress as a marvelous tribute to that strange powerhouse that was Joan Crawford- the original Mildred Pierce. from that perspective, the outfit is perfect. and Kate carries it off with aplomb. yay, Kate.

    She’s recently separated from Sam Mendes right?
    This strikes me as a “look at what your missing”/ “I’m back on the market” outfit matched with a “hell yes I’ve been working out” body
