    She looks like mariah carey with that dress.
    you must understand this dress makes her look fat, fire your stylist sophia!

  • Shay

    Does she ever date people besides her costars?

  • nina

    She’s so beautiful here, I love all (the dress, hair, shoes, jewellery…)
    Mariah Carey hahaha joke of the year!
    Austin is handsome, I like his look here

  • nina

    I do not understand the haters, if you like it why you lose your time to post just to criticize? There are better things to do than drool over someone behind a computer (it is really frustrated)

    We do not like it ok but why post just to play the viper tongues

    And if she goes out with her co-stars, what is your problem? A lot of players out with several of their co-star, others prefer rock star …
    And I find that the dress was bigger, once a star has forms and not all skinny as a rail

  • alex09

    They are so pretty together! Austin looks really good!

    Haters to the left…

  • Jennifer

    Sophia looks gorgeous. This is actually the best i’ve seen her look in a long time. I love her dress and her hair looks great.

    As always, Austin looks terrible.

  • kira

    wow she looks hot

  • Cassie

    I’m sorry but he’s NOT handsome at all. She’s pretty but can’t dress for shit.

  • …..

    Hey it’s Sophia and her puppy again!
    I bet she pays for everything.

  • Di

    Are you so fan that you can’t see what’s hideous and what’s not ?
    I’m sorry but you have to search very far in JJ’s thread to find a picture where a stylist didn’t want to make her look ridiculous.
    I didn’t criticize the person, just the way the dress was….
    Call me a HATER!

  • I BARK

    OH c’mon the girl has every right to walk her dog!

  • FACT

    Austin Nichols is douche who has nothing to do but follow Sophia everywhere!

  • Kaylie

    Ugly boyfriend and hideous dress = not a good combo

  • sos


  • nina

    I appreciate it very much but I know when a style is bad or not, I
    do not all these outfits but I love her dress here, and I have the right not
    if it pleases him is the main thing!

    You’ll tell me that you dress well every day, everybody
    love what you wear? I think not!

    @ Di
    And the more you say it makes you think it’s ridiculous not mine and
    not that many fashion experts.
    What you do not like her dress and how she is ok no problems
    but then to say it is ridiculous or it looks like it big
    abused! If Sophia looks great, so I understand why girls
    have become anorexic physique to see comments like these!

    @ I Bark
    And I think it’s disrespectful to call
    her boyfriend a dog or that she pays for everything! You’re with them
    to assert

    all the actresses when they go to parties like that go with their boyfriends, this is normal

    I saw several posts of you on Sophia, always same… bashing, bashing, bashing…


  • nina

    Haters : envy and jealousy, so pathetic
    I want to know why you’re wasting your time here just for the pleasure of criticizing

  • J-

    Really haters? GET A F*CK*IN*G LIFEEEE!!!!! -.-” She’s AMAZING and soo PRETTY the dress is not that awsome but she’s one of the most amazing people in this world. And Austin is not her puppy. Why do you have to post your stupid comments here? Just go watch a porn. You need it. Arrhhhhhgg! Btw thx Jared for posting stuff about Sophia <3

  • jess

    Sophia and Austin are both AMAZING love them both!!! She is georgous and he is handsome!!!! Thanks JJ for posting this it makes my day seeing stuff about sophia!!!!

  • nina

    @ Mia
    Really? Stupid bit*h
    She does what she wants!
    She is married to Chad (and before they are held longer than one year
    together) and if it is over with is that he has cheated!
    And then there ‘s been Austin waow is too
    With James, there was never any evidence, photos (and yet it is
    followed by the paparazzi), there is nothing they just had lying around
    Overall, normal since they are friends since the beginning of the series and even though she was out with him, where is the problem?

    and went out with Jon Foster for a long time

    3 men waowwwwwwwwww is mostly too hollywood
    Mind you your ass

    @nina: @nina:

    As you wasted precious time to answer me, I’m pleased to do the same:

    - it’s not worthy to have one of your best friend (sophia’s friend) that is THE fashion genius : Max azria, and dare to wear something that looks like a bag when you can be classy and beautiful with that :

    oh no, I’m not ridiculous, I have every right to say she had better style, Plus I never attacked her weight, I said the dress makes her look fat, NOT SHE IS FAT, I never said that.

    Besides you’re telling I’m like limit pro-anorexic, sorry but I think women like catherine zeta-jones and beyonce are great and both have a great sense of style.

    About fashion experts I would say:
    You know even Andre leon talley can make some mistakes…

  • Misha

    Guys lets not argue about this. But I understand what you’re saying. Some clothes can make even the skinniest person look bigger than they really are. I’ve noticed the same thing when it comes to me as well. Some dresses make me appear huge while others fit me perfectly fine. I agree, everyone makes fashion mistakes, I know I’ve made plenty.Lol
    Sophia is gorgeous and she looks really beautiful here. If you think the dress doesn’t look that nice, that’s perfectly fine to think so.
    I really love her hair though. The tone/shade is beautiful.

  • Mary

    LOL at people saying Austin follows her around. I guess most of you never had boyfriend. That’s what you do with your boyfriends, you go to events together,hiking, swimming etc. unless you can’t stand him.

    God forbbid Sophia wants him there to support her and if someone wants to say they’re doing this only for publicity, let me remind you that Sophia/Austin were always together at events until they decided to come out, so please don’t waste your time trying to sell lies as facts.

  • WOW!

    Sophia confirms the “relationship”!
    Sophia Bush: Austin Nichols Took One Tree Hill Job for Me!
    Kissing costars Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols aren’t hiding their relationship anymore, but who knew they’ve actually been dating for years?

    It was news to us when the One Tree Hill star shared that tidbit last night at E!’s 20th birthday bash.

    “We’ve been dating off and on for the past four years,” Sophia told me at the London West Hollywood hotel.

    Sophia was understandably wary about dating a costar after what she refers to as the “Chad [Michael Murray] debacle,” but Austin made a grand gesture that convinced her to go for it…

    “I was pretty terrified,” she admitted, referring to her marriage to her former costar. But it turns out that Austin actually took a job on One Tree Hill to be with her!

    “We had so many years of history prior to him coming to work on the show,” she explained, “and I think someone taking a job and moving their life across the country to show you how much they care is pretty much the most romantic gesture that a person could make.”

    Now that the two are out-in-the-open love interests on and off the small screen, could a real engagement be coming in real life too? Stay tuned!

  • terri

    Blah blah blah
    Austin is a baby. He needs a mother.
    Love this look on Sophia.

  • Rachel

    Sophia is such a hypocrite. Wasn’t she dating James Lafferty last year or so?

  • Vera

    @Rachel: She forgot that minor detail! LMAO

  • thanksjared

    I didn’t think it was possible to hate Sophia more. Thanks for this blog Jared. Keep posting on this crazy hypocrite and I’ll give you more comments. Win-win!

  • Kim

    James was too good for her anyway.
    She’s like the most unprofessional person ever. Married CMM and then divorced, dating JL and now Austin Nichols. And they all are on the same show, isn’t that cute. They’re one family LOL. I used to like her a lot before but not anymore.

  • claire

    Seriously I love sophia I really do, but her dress make her look fat.
    And she seriously need to fire a stylist, she had so much style last year, all her dresses are AWFUL now! Just remember her HORRIBLE orange dress

  • Anon.

    Sophia is NOT a hypocrite. Yes, she and James were together but they were never serious. They became really close at one point and were best friends and decided to see maybe if they could turn into something more. Clearly that didn’t happen as they both decided to end things. Sophia has never and will never talk about James because we all know how crazy and insane some people had gotten right about the time people started suspecting that they were together. Remember the whole charity game disaster with James?? People were harassing them like crazy. You really think Sophia will talk about anything pretaining to her and James? Heck no.
    The only other person she dated besides James was Jon after she and Chad broke up. They met on “Stay Alive” and dated for a year or so. After and Jon broke up, Sophia never really talked much about him except for mentioning that they still care about one another and are friends….which they are.
    But Sophia has a long history with Austin. They’ve tried dating twice before(before he joined OTH) but it didn’t work due to the long distance. But after he started on OTH, he asked her out AFTER she and James broke up. I know there are rumors out there that say otherwise, but’s all bullsh*t spread by haters.
    Sophia and Austin are together and they’re happy. I don’t see why some people seem so concerned about there love lives. Let her date whoever she wants. If she wants to date fifty people, thats HER business, not anyone else’s.

  • PR

    #39, Sophia is a liar, she never dated Austin.

  • commonsense

    She’s a pretty girl and clearly skinny BUT no matter what she wears she always manages to look pudgy which it’s really weird. I think she either needs to get a new stylist or hire one.

  • Anon.

    She isn’t a liar you idiot. There are PICTURES that prove that Austin and Sophia have dated in the past. There are pictures of them together from 2006. AND there are also pictures of them together from 2008 when Austin had gone to see Sophia in New York during Fashion Week. There are pictures of them ONLINE and if you really care so much, then go find them.
    This is the THIRD time they’re giving their relationship a chance. Its there third time dating. Like they say, third times a charm. But then again, I’m not a fortune teller and neither is anyone else. They may end up together for good or they may break up tomorrow. Time will tell.

  • Di

    @claire: @Misha:
    EXACTLY (what I was trying to say!)

  • Melissa

    Sophia looks AMAZING!!!!!
    She is so beautiful.
    Her hair looks fantastic and her dress is really cute.
    I also really love her jewelry.
    And Austin looks hott!!!

  • dani

    Austin is a douche, he moved across the country for her. BS he moved for a steady paycheck. Sophia is an intelligent person except when it comes to guys. What a line of bull he gave her and she believes him DUMB. I guess she wants a ring from him. Fat chance Austin is so cheap and need will need HIS parents permission, baby ass creep.

  • kara

    You little sophia bush fans are scary! Truth be told.. The girl is very average. Medicre acting, mediocre body, and plain jane face. Outside of your obsessed little minds she is really no big deal. I saw her at the airport not too long ago.. Looked like an everyday girl. Don’t get your panties in too much of a twist ladies :)

  • PR

    @Anon.: Cut the cr*p!
    Those 2006 pictures prove that they weren’t dating because Jake was cut out.
    Posing for paparazzi and red carpet cameras has noting to do with dating and all to do with showmances and getting the press.

  • Anon.

    You cut YOUR crap. Those aren’t the only pictures of them together from 2006. And as for the pictures with Jake, I already knew Jake was cut out from them. The media did that on purpose to so they could run a new story about Sophia and her “new guy”. Little did they know that Sophia and Austin were talking at the time and then dated briefly before ending it and then trying again in 2008. You can rant about your PR crap until you’re blue in the face, but nothing you say is going to make me think otherwise.

  • Helen

    I’ve seen her in an airport as well…..twice. And as a woman, I’m willing to admit that Sophia is really beautiful. Her skin and her face is just flawless and radiant. And she was a complete sweetheart both times I met her. It was a pleasure seeing her.

  • Ana

    Feast your eyes on James and Shantel! They have been banging uglies since Shantel arrived in Wilmy.
