Rosie Fugtington-Whiteley

CUBA: Ahhhh, it’s good to be Cuba. I’m dapper, I was actually probably better in Pearl Harbor than most of those people, everybody kind of misses me, and now I’m here with Uma Thurman.

ROSIE: Oh, I’m not Uma Thurman.

CUBA: … Are you sure?

ROSIE: Quite.

CUBA: REALLY? Because Uma really seems like someone who would wear a cape to pick up her new boxy paperweight.

ROSIE: Yeah, but would Uma Thurman wear a breastplate?

CUBA: Huh. You have a point there. She never wears short skirts, either.

ROSIE: So you see, I’m not her. I’m… well, I don’t remember exactly, something about Transformers 3.

CUBA: Sigh. I wanted to talk about Kill Bill 3. Now it’s not so good to be Cuba.

ROSIE: Oh, and I’m also a model.

CUBA: LIKE I SAID. It’s GOOD to be Cuba.

    Oddly enough I’m not hating this, even with the cape. Maybe I didn’t get enough sleep.

    But those shoes have got to go.

    I bet it looks amazing when she walks, or in a light breeze.

    I get why some people are averse to the mullet dress but I’ve got to say, this is a beautiful and delicate dress. Her styling is pretty awesome too. I’ve seen this dress in other pics, so maybe this is not the best angle, but it still looks great to me.

      I have to agree, when a mullet dress is given a soft train, much like this one, it can work really well. It’s when they are given blunt, heavy trains that bug me, much like Robyn’s grammy dress.

    I believe this is actually a separate cape.

    I’m not sure it was a good idea for ELLE to give out clear awards….so far everyone has held them against their clothes and you can’t see it.

    I do not like the dress. I saw this on another website from a different angle and it looked weird.

    If I were wearing a semi-sheer skirt that was that shape and that short, I…wouldn’t be standing that way.

    Oh this is patently ridiculous. It’s a cape over a too-big ice skating costume. It’s a breastplate embroidered on bad illusion netting that is hanging off her tiny boobs. She’s getting ready to parade into the center ring and climb up to the trapeze.

    They gave a style award to somebody who showed up dressed like one of Xena’s foot-soldiers? Awkward!

    Cuba looks fine, however. Not fine as in, kinda okay, but as in FINE!

    Is that a purse that matches her dress perfectly or a pocket on her dress? My eyes are going crazy and I just CANNOT TELL WHAT IT IS!

    If I were a superhero, this is what I would wear. Alas, I am not one.

    This girl looks like someone suctioned her face outwards- I cannot believe anyone thinks she is great looking. Caricature of Uma, who is a caricature herself really. Not that everyone has to be beautiful. But why are so many untalented ,scrawny girls being thrust about as role models ? I ask you… ( said like dear Maggie Smith, who was and is a brilliant woman, beautiful even in old age)

  12. Sherry Greengrass

    Her feet look like hooves in those shoes!

  13. Miranda

    What happened to her face? She looks completely unlike herself.

  14. Mahastee

    More capes! Capes for all!

    I feel like we’ve seen a version of this dress before? Perhaps I just have beige fatigue. But still, CAPES!

  15. Sajorina

    I love the dress sans cape! I can’t help it, I adore silver, but I don’t like the gold shoes with the nude& silver dress! Her hair & makeup are quite beautiful, so if she got rid of the cape and wore silver heels, this would be petfect!

    I also wonder why she chose gold shoes. The cape idea is ridiculous in theory, but I find it mitigates the ice-skating vibe of the dress and it looks good on her… ok, she’s a model and she should be over 6′ tall. I like she’s smiling happily; I’ve often found her annoyingly dramatic at her previous red-carpet appeareances; the more misfitting since the Transformers saga is not exactly Shakespeare, YKWIM…

    Did she steal She-Ra’s formal wear?
