Wondering what Demi Lovato was up to this weekend?

Apparently, she fell into a John Hughes marathon and she never climbed out. I get it. That’s where Jake Ryan lives.

    I literally gasped in horror. That outfit is turning her into a lumpy potato with ankle boots. Good lord, child. We can do better than this.

  2. Brenna

    Oh wow, is that unflattering. Those boots might be the worst part – they are making her legs look stumpy AND that she has cankles, which I’m positive that she doesn’t. And….are those bike shorts under the sheer skirt? Oh, honey, no.

  3. Gigi

    Oh, Demi, you are not stumpy and lumpy. Stop the madness.

    Cute article (link). I was definitely The Future Mrs. Jake Ryan when I was in high school. What a dreamboat. “Yeah, you!”

      But how sad is it that I read that article and thought, “No no, that’s not what she said, she said ‘A big PINK Trans Am in the driveway…’” and mentally corrected every quote they mentioned in the article (with the exception of, “Yeah, you” which, of course, they got right…)

    That article conveniently forgets to mention that Jake Ryan blithely sent his soon to be ex-girlfriend off to be date raped. I mean, I know she trashed his house, but c’mon!

    Also, Duckie wants his hat back.

    • Helen

      Apart from the skirt, I think the whole rest of the outfit might be Duckie’s.

    omg, this is tragic.

    This is what MAD-TV’s Ms. Swan would wear if she were choosing a see-through skirt.

      I used to work in a design showroom where quite a few celebrities would come in with their interior designers. Alex Borstein is the only one that I couldn’t help myself from saying “oh, I love you”. I was mortified with myself but she was nice about it. I guess I should just be happy that I refrained from saying “he look like a man”.

    that child needs an intervention – stat! is this worse than the ill fitting crap she wears on TV?

  8. Stefanie

    Holy crap. Im not sure that could be any more unflattering.

  9. Tiffany

    Demi, we want better for you than this!

  10. Miss Louise

    I call this look “Desperately Seeking Young Helena Bonham-Carter”.

  11. Lizzy

    Leave the Debbie Gibson look in the 80′s where it belongs.
    And thanks for that Jake Ryan article *sigh*. Maybe Demi watched the “Don’t You Forget About Me” documentary and just got really wistful for a time when child stars were better treated/protected.

    Even if my house burned down in the middle of the night, I’m confident I would run out into the street (my two cats engaged in a pillowcase cage-match) in something more flattering than this. And I own some RIDICULOUS STUFF, y’all.

  13. Mikki

    I’m not sure what’s more disconcerting – the fact that she had these separate pieces in her closet, or the fact that she picked them out to wear AS AN OUTFIT and then go out in public!

  14. Mel

    Somebody should tell her she’s not THE Demi from the Brat Pack!
    You can’t blame it on “dressed for comfort”! She accessorized and therefore pulled this outfit together with a lot of thought…failure. So not flattering for her figure. She looks like a rectangle, which we all know she’s not, thankfully! (no offense to Sponge Bob)

  15. Melinda

    “Jake Ryan? But he’s a senior, and he’s taken – I mean REALLY taken!”

  16. Guerra

    Wow this is really bad! the skirt might be cute but it’s not flattering with those shoes and legs. The jacket just burn!!!

  17. Ladyblahblah

    I’m going to give her a break and propose that she was the guest star on a reality show where the challenge was to run into a Goodwill and put on the first 5 things you find in 10 seconds.

  18. Elle

    LIke the song goes:”sometimes a diamond sometimes a stone”

  19. Snarkbot

    Boy George and Mr. Potatohead had a baby in the middle of Dress Barn.

  20. Kristin

    That is the most stumpifying skirt/boot combo I have ever seen. Your legs are better than this, Demi!

  21. Kayla

    I had a jacket identical to this. When I was 8. In 1995.

    Let’s leave it back there.

    Loved the Jake Ryan link. (Except not sure how the 34 yr old would of been 15 when movie came out) Just watched 16 candles tonight again. My 14 yr old daughter loved it and my 12 year old son (on tv so slightly edited) thought it was hilarious

    • LT1

      I was wondering the same thing until I realized the article is from 2004. I was 16 when it came out so, yeah, it spoke to me. Especially since Michael Shoeffling (Jake) graduated from my high school. He was a senior when I was a freshman and I had no idea he existed until the movie came out and it was already too late. . . His mom did like to shop at my mom’s clothing store though–I kept hoping he’d come in when he visited (never did).

  23. Sajorina

    You nailed it, GFY Jessica! I just don’t get why she did that to herself… Even Molly Ringwald is like “Girl, NO!”.

  24. PegMN

    I graduated high school in 1987. Boy, this outfit brings me back! I think I had that jacket and I’m sure I had those boots. No see-through skirts, though.

  25. Moa

    This is a horrible thing to happen to someone so lovely.

    my husband walked by, glanced at the screen, and said “Is that Ozzy Osbourne?”
