Ashley Judd: Belle of the Purple Ball

Ashley Judd is all smiles in a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown at the Inaugural Purple Ball at the Fairmont Hotel on Tuesday (January 20) in Washington, D.C.

The 40-year-old actress selected a mist grey crinkle gazar one shoulder gown, which features an asymmetrically draped bodice and soft bubble tier skirt.

A few hours earlier, Ashley stood in the chilly stands below the inauguration podium where President Barack Obama took his oath.

“I did layer,” Ashley said of her long underwear and blanket wrapped around her. “And I did get cold, but I expected that. It was all part of the experience.”

    Interesting dress.. I like it and find it odd at the same time..??

  • sweetie

    She’s beautiful :-)

  • justme.

    What happened to her face? It looks tight and puffy.

  • Lillianne

    Tim Gunn is right. Misty grey just looks like dirty white.

  • kate

    Her face seriously does look tight and puffy – what is going on there?

    And I personally hate that dress. It’s just awful.

  • bella

    For some reason it does not look like her. She is still beautiful, but I agree with #3.

  • common sense

    Clearly she had some sort of plastic surgery

  • Mara

    What the hell happened to her face? She looks horrible!!!

  • Ha!

    It’s not tight and puffy – it’s a horrible makeup job. And she’s getting older. She’s starting to look more and more like her mother. The dress is quite beautiful – the eyeshadow? Hideous. And her eyebrows are uneven and not symetrical.

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    ew! she looks awful! her dress and especially her face look atrocious

  • anonymous

    Her face is either bloated or she’s has something done to her face. Something is going on with the face.

    She is only FORTY. What do you need done at FORTY? Stop this madness with the too soon surgery.

  • Soap is good

    Botox + Eye Work + Mini Face Lift….Judd is a dud.

  • Lany

    Botox go wrong or something, she looks asian

  • Lany

    Also her mouth does not look natural, botox all over maybe?

  • LolaSvelt

    She looks bloated.

  • D9

    Man, lay off the filler injections! Ashely Judd looks worse terrible! No reason to look like this at only 40, absolutely none!!

  • Ella

    She’s publicly spoken about her fight with depression. Antidepressants are known to cause weight gain.

  • susan

    what happened to her?? her face looks bloated!!

  • bitchetta

    She’s looking more and more (in size) like her sis (Wynona)….she’s certainly packing in those pounds and it shows

  • miguela cazu

    she’s still pretty, but she’s looking very much like her mom naomi, and i think it’s a bit mature. her face seems to full, almost puffy. I think of Shirley Temple Black.

  • miguela cazu

    is she still with that jerk racer? when he mention everyone but her after winning the big race last year, i thought she should kick his butt out.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    unbelievible it is, but there are even mental “HEALTHY” americans who will fall for this smile, folks!!
    (maybe you understand, from now on, the situation america is in?)

  • boogie

    she’s 40 folks! Can’t expect people to retain their youthful looks forever.

    She reminds me of her mom.

  • Liza

    ^ 40 is not old at all. There’s more going on than aging with her face.

  • pafan

    I wish the Hollyweird mentality would just let people mature naturally and not push them into whatever she’s doing to herself.

  • Raichill

    Her face does look odd.

  • Anastacia

    what happend with her face???

  • alex_p

    oh wow. it really looks nothing like her.. she used to be SO beautiful

  • palvasha

    haha she looks like baloon

  • no, not Ashley!

    Ugh, now Ashley’s on the can’t get enough plastic surgery bandwagon! ? Noooooo! She looks so weird with the fat face, asian eyes and stuffed lips. God, her face must have collapsed for her to need all that altering. I can’t take any more of this.

  • Amy


  • melly

    Definite cheek implants. How could such a beautiful woman mess with herself that way? I just saw her in a preview for some awful movie with Harrison Ford, and I knew right away she had f****d with her looks. What a shame. What comes over people? I think it’s kind of a sickness. Lara Flynn Boyle the most egregious example of self-destructive plastic surgery.

  • Karen

    Wow…I’m surprised no one stated the obvious. She has simply gained weight.

  • ginger

    Thank u karen! yes she simply gained weight. remember when she went in to a facility for anorexia a couple yrs ago? well, i guess she is over that now b/c she has definitly put on weight! thats why her face is ballooned out a bit.
