SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Sigourney Weaver


Oh, LORD. Jessica and I did not watch together last night, but we DID simultaneously instant-message each other some horrified gibberish when the enviably fab Sigourney walked out in this.

There is, perhaps, a glimmer of a plea for help in her eyes. Is this a coded ransom note? Is it holding her prisoner? And is it weird to ROOT for that, as the only acceptable explanation?

    Man she is gorgeous but this dress makes her look like the female version of the Grim Reaper.

    I suspect, and fear, that she may have gone braless in this dress. Don’t think it would be nearly as bad if she had the girls at the right level (and a tighter waistline)

      Not to be crude, but it looks like she has more than two Girls in there. A woman this awesome deserves better.

    Oh god. That’s a hefty bag.

    This is totally the black version of Rose Byrne’s dress. It’s like they were inspired by Downton Abbey and just didn’t notice that most of those dresses are unflattering even on the (skinny, gorgeous) characters.

    The top of her dress looks like that time I sewed the edges of a pillowcase together and went as a sack of flour for Halloween.

    I had no idea they were making bullet proof couture now just in case some deranged gunman goes over the edge during awards season.

    This dress is so terrible that I can’t even figure out how to say how bad it is. I honestly think she could have walked around topless and looked better. This makes me want to cry.

    The dress is awful, and really, it is OK to wear hose if you need to. There are some great “barely there” brands out there.

    It reminds me of the dress she wore when she was looking for Zuul all those years ago…are you the keymaster?

      No way! That dress was the thing dreams are made of! The shiny iridescent color….ooooo Mufasa!

    I’m waiting for an alien to explode out of her chest.

    She is so pretty but has never had a decent dress for these things. But she is such a wonderful actress…

    THE SHOES PEOPLE, THE SHOES. Horror of horrors.

    And like I said last night, her boobs are totally disguised as Morticia Addams’ boudoir throw cushions.

    The immortal words of Clairee explain the chest region best: ‘Its like two pigs fighting under a blanket’. Now I need to go watch Steel Magnolias.

    When your pent-up chest makes a herringbone pattern in the satin, it’s time to go up a size. Or scrap the dress entirely and start fresh. I wish she’d had scrapped the whole thing. The shoes—how dreadful! And maybe some color on your lips. Something. Egads.

      This. Totally this. Zig zag boobs are no good.

        It’s even worse than that,

        We are missing a zag.

        We should have zig zag zig zag here.

        But I only see zig zag zig.

    This is the worst dressed for me. Looks like something a middle school home ec class would come up with. UGH

    Is it an optical illusion or are her boobs really that skallywompus? What is going on?? I can’t figure it out.

      What is going on is a classic mistake: big boobs, high neck, no sleeves. The combination almost always turns you into giant boob lump. Made worse by what seems to be a complete lack of support. Her breasts don’t deserve this dress.

    She should be shot for the shoes alone! And no bra–really?

    Her dress caught fire from a pretentiously Gothic restaurant’s candle and she had to pin together one of their curtains? Maybe?

    Someone needs to stop her left boob before it makes good its escape!

    I see the truck-mudflap girl in her boobs, thanks to the satin and the lighting.

    WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN CANNOT BE UNSEEN.

    Those ruffles on the flanks will make any woman look ten pounds heavier in person, and twenty pounds heavier in person. I don’t know why they’re even sold.

    Seriously, this dress is all wrong for her porportions! She’s very tall and doesn’t have a lot of curves, but instead of giving her a hint of an hourglass shape, this dress makes her look like she’s the same width from her shoulders to her ankles.

    This looks like she’s being attacked by the Black Oil from The X-Files. That was seriously my first thought.

    This makes me sad! So unfortunate!

    Oh, honey. When you’re well over 60, a bra is your absolutely indispensable friend, particularly under clingy satin.

    Not everyone is Helen Mirren, unfortunately.

    What on earth is happening beneath the upper half?

    Oh dear. I love Sigourney Weaver, and this is just so wrong for her. I don’t think it would look good on anyone, actually.

    I heard she wore the dress backwards. Why, I don’t know. I was so flabbergasted at how bad it looked that I came looking online for other comments about it. So wrong in so many ways. I felt embarassed for her!

    As soon as I saw this on Sunday night, my first thought (once I’d finished retching) was “I can’t WAIT to see what the Fug GIrls have to say about THIS one!” Absolutely, hands-down, by far the worst look of the night. Staggeringly awful for someone who is usually quite elegant and tasteful. What on earth could she possibly have been thinking???

    it looks like she has just one triangular boob that’s trying to run behind her back to hide from this hideous dress. either that or she has some sort of small animal stuffed under there trying to claw itself free.

    An alien is about to burst from her chestal region. God no.

    There’s something wrong with the top of this gown. What is it? I can’t figure it out.
