SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Jenna Ushkowitz


What the heck was in the Secondary Character Watercooler over at Glee?

This is what you’d get if Jessica McClintock had designed Julia Roberts’ hooker dress from Pretty Woman.

With an assist from Playtex:

And, I suspect, the 3M Corporation. If that’s not at least 40 percent scotch tape, then I will eat my hat. (Please note: The hat I just put on is a peanut butter sandwich.)

    Well that just makes no sense what so ever.

    The mind. It boggles.

      That is truly mind-bogglingly unattractive. There are no redeeming attributes to it at all.

      I totally just read that as “The mind wobbles”…. and I can’t remember the reference!

    Its resolutely unflattering from every possible angle. It accentuates a waist she apparently doesn’t have, the print reminds me of something my 9 year old niece would favor, and the back is heinous. Is the white part made out packing tape??

    For some inexplicable reason, I almost don’t hate it when viewing the front… but the back threw “almost” and “don’t” right out the window.

    That is a ROTUND NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She never gets it right! I like her clutch, though! Go ahead and eat your hat, Jessica! By the way, I wore an awesome Jessica McClintock dress to my 1995 High School graduation and I rocked the hell out of it!

    The back is freaking carcrash! But I don’t hate it from the front, I just with the “shift” underneath was a little more delicate.

    Did you know she’s dating Michael Trevino aka Tyler Lockwood from the Vampire Diaries? I didn’t, until I saw pictures of them together at the SAG Awards. Now THAT is one accessory that can save even the wackest of dresses. I feel ripped off that you didn’t include a picture so we can all learn.

      That was my biggest WTF of the night. Had no clue when scrolling through Getty Images and then laughed because he was labelled as “Guest.” I was like, “Really? Those two? For realsies? No. Really? Oh well!”

    Wow, someone really hates her. Or she got dressed in the dark with her eyes closed. With garments from the dumpster where Goodwill throws out stuff that even they won’t sell.

    Dear lord. This was terrible enough from the front. The turn-around fug is too much.

    Wow. I hated this from the front, and the back is so very, very much worse. The closures are an abomination, from the clunky overlap at the neckline to the truly awful floating zipper. This looks like a junior high school sewing class project.

    It’s simply a tennis dress (one that would look goo with go-go boots and a hair bump) covered by sheer print overlay recovered from a demolished Gunne Sax factory.

    Holy cow that’s bad. It was more than bad enough from the front, but the back is just stunning in its awfulness. Every single person that had anything to do with this look should have to go to some sort of remedial fashion class before they’re allowed to work anywhere near clothes again.

    she always dresses horribly. When are they going to stop inviting the entire cast of Glee to award shows? The show is awful, I’d much rather see the crew from Community or Parks and Rec getting all these invites

      I’d also rather see them get all the nominations that “Glee” gets!

    “Our new foundation garment, zips up the back and …”

    … no, I just can’t.

      Oh anny, I love you for quoting “The Women”! I adore that movie.

        If anyone here has only seen the horrible Meg Ryan version of “The Women”, watch the fashion-filled, hilarious, and bitchy Joan Crawford original version, STAT!

    I dont mind the front but the back is terrible!!!

    Just… WTF is this?! Did she look in a mirror before she left? Ack! This is terrible. She’s so cute and this is sooooooooo bad.

    What is up with that completely useless zipper in the back? It just looks like an extended ass crack.

    She obviously doesn’t own a mirror because it would only take one look for her to shriek ‘Get it off me! Get it off me!’

    I think that’s hands down the most grufugly thing I’ve seen in the past six months, bar none. It has NO redeeming features. It wouldn’t even make a good grease rag for changing the oil in your car.

      Wait.

      You’re saying that The Wasson Rag was actually better than this? I mean, yeah, this dress is hideous, but it also qualifies as being clothed. (Which is a good thing, as I don’t think Jenna’s last name lends itself quite so easily to unclothed puns as Erin Wasson’s.)

    Well. At least her date is really hot.

    Oh my. I don’t even think anyone from Project Runway would send this dress out in front of Michael Kors and the rest of the panel.

    Lose the zipper and change the blinding whiteness of the “undergarment” to something that compliments the color of the fabric, use an outer fabric that isn’t so see through, tell her to stand up straight and you might get this outfit up to “feh”.

    But she still wins because she’s dating hot HOT Tyler Lockwood from Vampire Diaries.

    The front I was ‘Meh’ The back I was ‘sweet Jesus, what is wrong with some people?’

    So…the triangles on her front that LOOK like skin but can’t be because that would be really weird with such a square (yet simultaneously wispy?) skirt…
    are actually skin. Okay. Just checking that.

    (Actually, it scares me to say that I would LIKE the whole thing, with back, WITHOUT the skirt layers. No?
    Maybe this is simply because I love her, even with hair that is either extremely unflattered by that photo or has the longest roots I have ever seen. When it looks like you have a short black toupee on your long blond hair…do something. Even if it’s just telling the photographer to stand somewhere else so the…shadows? please be shadows…go away.)

    I… actually really like this?! It’s cute and young and reall flattering. She looks pretty and comfy and it’s not all bespangled and titsmcgee. It’s kind of clean cut and nice. It probably helps that she looks a lot like my pretty friend Mea here but I’m not getting the hate!

    The front of the dress was okay…not great but not horrible, however, OMG…that has to be the worst back of a dress I have ever seen!! I think it’s that zipper that really puts it over the edge. Why!?!
