    her hair looks ugly!

  • andamentothat

    Is she channeling CHER?

  • xoxo


  • gigi

    Cher with stubby legs. I mean, that dress hem is messy and hits her leg at a very bad place.

  • Heyacrazyy

    she is gorg
    and rihanna’s was just…retarded
    although a bit more drama will be fine

  • cloak~n~dagger

    holy crap. the weeping willow…

  • Saudia

    total Selena Gomez look alike lol .. omg she’s gorgeous love Rachel!!

  • kroq

    I think she has a great casual style but she never really brings her game to the big red carpet events. She’s cute but not striking. Her hair is probably her best asset. Her make-up artist should accentuate her eyes more. It’s all in the eyes.

  • voice of reason

    Not liking the hair at all, the dress is ok she’s not the worst dressed. rihanna don’t even wish to comment on that outfit.

  • Gasol_fan16

    She looks like she is channeling Elvira mistress of the dark. Not Cher! The hair and shoes are bad. I happen to actually like the green dress on her. NO RING??!!! No Hayden? She looks angry to me. Maybe, she got none last night! :lol:

    Such an attention seeker.

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    she’s supposed to look nice?!? hahahahaha.. fail! she’s even uglier than normal. fugly-pug. the hair! the hair! the hair! whatdafuck!?!

  • stacy

    She doesn’t have the boobs to pull that neckline off. But it’s an improvement over the trash bag dress and rat’s nest hair she wore last year.

  • sally

    Sorry folks but I ‘m not feeling it. Yeah, she has symeterical features and “okay” skin but she is not a beauty. Just “attractive” when made up, not a stand out. She makes couture look like a dress from Target.

    That is a bad iron job on her hair, it does not look like it was done professionally.

  • http://Goawaybeyonce love her but…

    Rihanna really brought it. This is kinda boring.

  • tonie

    Wasn’t the theme Model as Muse? This is what the designer thought of when he thought of her. I think I saw a similar dress on an episode of Cops(hooker was wearing it). Dress looks like it is falling down on the top. Ugly from head to toe. No engagement ring either. Just saying.

    I think most of the designers got together and decided who could come up with the worst outfit. They’re probably all laughing their heads off.

  • stupid

    she has no cleavage. she shouldnt wear a strapless. there is nothing to hold up the dress.

    she cant dress. that white herve leger dress she wore yrs ago was perfect for her shape

    not this. it annoys me how he stands

  • Ethan


  • stupid

    she doesnt look happy either. just a polite smile.

    you can tell when people r happy. she hasnt been the last several days.

  • heather

    This dress makes her boobs look like pancakes. No good.

  • celebrityobsessed.

    The dress is nice, but it makes her boobs look awful. The hair is ehh, no comment. Straight, flat hair is out.

  • Leah

    That color looks great on her. But like someone said before, she just doesn’t have the boobs to pull it off. The shoes are awesome, but as a whole, she’s very underwhelming. She’s an cute girl, but she should have gone more dramatic to stand out. This is boring. And seeing as how she was a muse for the designer, well apparently he thought she was boring and underwhelming as well.

    And to everyone who says that Rihanna looks horrible, well she’s always been a risk taker and the fashion community loves her for that.


    She looks like a CHIHUAHUA!

  • terri


  • Alicia

    I think her and Blake look lovely. Madonna is wearing something strange on her head, Jessica lost the fight with the self tanner and Rihanna dressed like a man.

  • abfan123

    oy vey! what’s with the townie hair??? she looks like a wayward OC party extra…in a bad way!

  • Anon

    I usually love Rachel’s fashion sense, but this is awful. It looks like she’s trying to use her hair to cover what her dress obviously isn’t. Another 3 inches of fabric on top would have made a world of difference.

  • sloane

    Flat Chested… Sagged Tits… Short Legged, Homely Face… why she’s even here in this this event?!

  • hmm

    no engagement ring? you would think a girl would want to wear it all the time lol

  • erinrae

    Ok, I like the dress. What I’m noticing is Claire behind her!

  • Ellen

    Her cleavage is ugly. Waaaay far apart and sagging and flat. Not a good thing when even a structured bodice can’t give some shape.

  • unreechy

    Simply lackluster. You could even wear this dress on every high school prom night. And her newly rebounded/straightened hair looks like a wig. So yeah that’s coming from the self-claimed fauxshion designer & the latest of which is a fauxshion columnist – wooosh!

  • NY GAL

    Not impressed with her look. Too casual for this event. The color of the dress is nice. Where’s her engagement ring? More importantly, where the hell is Hayden??

  • voice of reason

    In Canada NY GAL

  • Whisper

    Didn’t anyone tell her what this event was? She looks like she’s going clubbing. Too plain to be there.

  • Funkey

    NOPE not feelings this at’s an upgrade granted from the what the hell ever she was trying to wear last year but, She looks she some wrinkled pound puppy. that or she just didn’t give a shyt what she wore. If this is the best this designer can come up with for this function damn she better not choose him again.

    I agree with the one that said this outfit was on the episode of COPS HOOKER SERIES..Snake skin looking shoes Please..Now Gisel looked really good love he brillant Blue she has on and she can pull off the short dress well with her blonde hair and long legs.

  • NY GAL

    @VOR I’m so bummed that Hayden wasn’t there. Are you sure that he’s in Canada?

  • LuckyL

    Terrible hair, terrible extensions

  • monreal

    Just let that mundane dress be worn by some chick who got pretty face, boobs & (long) legs. that would be interesting & hot – Alexis Bledel, Sophia Bush or even Mischa Barton initially comes into my mind!

  • mimilala


  • voice of reason

    @NY Girl-he ain’t in NY not to many other places he could be.

  • mmm

    omg her hair ….horrible!

  • Sophie


  • rb

    I didn’t know RBils was doing The Grudge Part 4.
    Her hair is perfect for a Japanese horror movie.

  • alexa

    Is the Bally creative director Brian Atwood any relation to Ryan Atwood?

    Season 1 Summer with the boobs could have pulled that outfit off. Now- not anymore.

  • whodie

    Kourtney Kard-Ass-Skank Version 2.O.

  • zoe

    boring!! the dress is nice, love the colour but it looks mehh on her. she doesnt have support…! hair is boring. this look puts everyone to sleep.

  • KULY

    she’s gorgeous

  • emmarose

    She looks pretty, like the dress, but not the hair, seems she doesnt wear the ring to public events, notice she didnt wear it at all to NY Fashion Week when the engagement story broke, this is the first event she has been too since, so presuming that is why no ring, obviously doesnt want to be asked about it maybe Hayden put a gagging order on her LOL

  • comrade

    @43 – I didn’t know RBils was doing The Grudge Part 4.

    So which is which… the one from “The Grudge” or the one from
    “The Ring”?!

  • Toni

    Why does she always emphasize the fact that her tits are so far apart?
