Tony Awards Fug Carpet: Amanda Seyfried


You know, they should just take the Fashion Police conceit a step further and flat-out shoot mug shots on the red carpet. Look, Amanda Seyfried is already participating:

Her expression says, “I DIDN’T DO IT. MY MENTAL BRAKES FAILED. MY STYLIST CUT ME OFF. I DIDN’T KNOW I WAS IN PUBLIC. THEY’RE NOT MY PANTS. I WAS IN A FUGUE STATE. UM… uh. Dammit. They got me. I totally did it.”

This is like an unholy fusion of J.Crew and Pier 1 Imports, and it only works if she’s developing a play about one woman’s courageous attempt to belt some reasonably priced bohemian throw-pillows. Consider yourself busted, kid. Your permanent record needs some Clearasil because it is blemished.

    Take away the belt and get some different shoes and she’s golden. I don’t mind the dress itself, the clutch is a nice pop of color.

    I think the hairstyle may be a little severe too, maybe a loose updo?

      I completely agree, and I would make the straps a little wider, and hike up the top by an inch

        Me three. I don’t know if she was thinking “OMG it’s the Tony’s. I need to look theatrical.”

        Except my Mom and I used to love watching the Tony’s because pre-fashion-blogging, they tended to look normal and put together, yet theatrical. The red carpet was usually working actors who didn’t get fashion thrown at them, but they had their own look.

        Now? It’s half Hollywood. Nowhere near as fun.

    I don’t know. I kind of like this. Kinda maybe?
    It’s different, and kind of fun. Not sure the shoes are working with this, and I’m not entirely on board with the orange belt. And the lipstick is bad.

    But other than that…

      I’m on board with you for the most part although I do kind of like the orange belt.

    Bonus points for no spray tanning! Shoes are hideous though.

    that outfit has Chloe Sevigny written up and down it’s orange accessorized face.

      Yep, she’s definitely giving off Sev-vibes here. It’s the SO WRONG lipstick as much as the saggy boobs and random belt I think.

        Orange lipstick is for Advanced Deployment only – makes even chicklet teeth look bad…

    is it crazy that i didnt totally hate this? maybe its because i love her?

      I have no opinion one way or the other on her, but I don’t hate this look either. I even think it looks better on her than it did on the runway. It’s bold and unusual and I don’t necessarily want it in my closet, but I think her eyes pop and look fantastic and all the orange is bright and festive.

      It’s in the same category for me as the chinosere dress worn by Dakota Fanning. I don’t want to wear it, but I think it’s interesting and a refreshing change from the usual boring gowns.

    Sigh. This screams LOOK AT ME just as loudly as Chastain’s near-nudity, if not quite as rudely. Disappointing.

    I kind of like it. I wish the hair and the makeup were different though.

    I would like it without the orange belt and purse. And her hair should be in a softer style.

    That belt belongs back on the crossing guard and nowhere else. I would soften her hair and change the shoe. I think the dress is pretty.

    I love the dress and the clutch! If she left the belt at home and changed into different shoes I would be sold.

    I really dig this. Maybe not with the tight hair, but still, FAB!

    Why the hell did she match her lipstick to her clutch and the belt? Blecch! Also blecch to the shoes and the length of the skirt. And the snake thing on her hip.

    That dress was NOT made for a belt to be worn with it! That waistline has a bit of a drop to it and ends BELOW where that belt rests. Not good. The problem is the dress was probably a bit too big in the waist and someone had the not bright idea to slap on a horribly clashing belt. Big mistake.

    Opposing the purple with orange is a good idea in theory. The execution here fails on a grand scale, though. And boy, does that warm orange lipstick clash with the cool purple of the dress.

      The runway version had the belt, so it must have been made that way. Maybe just poorly made?

    I like the dress, though. Not the lipstick. Maybe the belt if it ended the waist where it should.

    I’m seeing a lot of orange/purple combos, both in clothing and decorating. I kinda like this.

    I don’t mind orange and purple in general, but I think there is WAY too much going on here — it’s overwhelming her and the makeup makes her look sickly.

    I don’t hate this either. I think I’d be totally behind it though if the orange belt were thinner and she was doing something different with her hair.

    Aww I think it’s cute! Maybe would look better without the belt, and the lipsticks not 100% flattering but it’s about 80% better than what you see on most young actresses (also I don’t know why I’m getting all percentagy on it but hey it’s after 5 oclock in London).

    I love purple and orange together…especially right around Halloween with all my decorations…. but not on this…

    I love the belt and would so want it to go with a much more casual outfit. Maybe an aubergine T and some flat front chinos with a pair of fabulous orange sandals ( or even flats)…. maybe with a more casual skirt….. but not a GAP belt on a vintage-y dress.

    If she loves the dress…then the shoes, hair and make up need a major overhaul too…

    All of that said…. I have, now, decided that I want an aubergine T and a cute skirt and that belt and some matching flats…. damn you Seyfried !! Why couldn’t you have just left well enough alone!!!!

    I am totally on-board with reasonably priced bohemian throw-pillows.

    This ..not so much.

    The orange stuff isn’t well done. Also, this would look way better on someone with dark hair. It’s too much for her light features. And the shoes are unattractive.

    No belt, closed toed shoes and a manicure and she’d be fine.

    I don’t love the dress on its merits, but I can see how someone would. It’s an “*I* just wouldn’t choose it.” She also would look less alien with softer hair, as mentioned, but her eyes are seriously popping here.

    The belt and clutch, however, are HORRIBLE HORRIBLE MISTAKES. The belt especially. I hate the color, I hate the placement, hate everything about its existence.

    Grandma’s best summer nighty, cinched with the worst belt I’ve ever seen. Yet, the hair is what makes me blink back tears.

    She looks like JFK Jr’s wife in these photos… Blanking on her name…

    With a different hair/lipstick/belt combination, this could have been cute.

    It’s like it’s not fashiony enough to just wear a pretty dress with gorgeous detail – you have to be edgy and throw a belt from opposite-land over it. Whatever. It looks wrong.

    Ack. I like this! It pleases my eyes. I would wear it (if I had smaller arms and bigger jugs). It’s messy and busy but there is something I can’t explain. It clashes and it hurts and it feels GOOD

    I like the dress, the earrings and the bracelet, but hate the other accesories. This did not need either the orange purse or belt, which both interrupt the embroidery on top which should be the focus. Though I get she was going for a pop of color, the quantity orange, overly emphasized by the lip is too severe.

    I must admit that I LOVE THIS DRESS! And, I like the jewelry & the makeup! But, she killed it (get it?) with the belt & the shoes… When I saw what she had done (see what I did there?), I said “Oh, Nooooooo!” This could’ve been great with her wavy hair down, no belt & killer (heh, heh!) purple or gold stilettos! She took something that was beautiful on its own and murdered it (Ha!) with the accessories! I’ll FAB the dress & jewelry, but FUG everything else!

    God she is beautiful I love her face but hate everything from the nech down. I could possibly use that belt & clutch with some of my outfits lol
