Julia Roberts' Kimono -- Fashion Do or Don't?

Julia Roberts' Kimono -- Fashion Do or Don't?

Julia Roberts swims around in a bronze sheer, striped kimono during the Eat Pray Love premiere held at Roppongi Hills on Thursday (August 19) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 42-year-old actress is taking her fashion cues from the Far East, but did her risky look pay off? Sound off in the comments!

FYI: Julia accessorized with Jimmy Choo “Clue” platform sandals and Van Cleef & Arpels jewels — a 1959 “Sequin” Estate bracelet featuring emeralds and diamonds set in yellow gold and platinum and a 1957 “Carnaval” Estate bracelet featuring ruby and diamonds set in yellow gold.

15+ pictures inside of Julia Roberts donning a kimono…

    In my opinion, horrible.

  • lauren

    Well I don’t care about what she is wearing. She looks natural and beautiful!

  • lauren

    Well I don’t care about what she is wearing. She looks natural and beautiful!

  • S@n

    Well, Julia is gorgeous anyway!

  • JuBEE

    Again i want her stylist to be hung. or maybe throw ninja stars at him/her.

  • mia

    How can one look in the mirror dresses like this and truly believe that she looks good?

  • lola

    Horrible! Why, Julia????

  • Babou

    Oh my, someone’s stylist and people lied to her today.

    Julia has so full or herself, she’ll likely think “what do the little people know about fashion, puhleeze”, she thinks her fame transcends and overides everything, bad fashion included. To me she always looks like a duck. A duck with a honky annoying laugh.

  • bubbaness

    It looks better in the full length shots than from the waist up. It makes her top half look ginormous.

  • laverdadduele

    Don’t be fooled by her smile…she’s fake as a three dollar bill.

  • jane

    @Babou: I agree
    Horrific outfit but the hair and face look a lot better than yesterday.

  • maggiexao

    DONT, hate it, cant stand her anyways….



  • huh?

    That’s definately not a kimono, Jared!

  • no no try again


  • dd

    OMG! Who dressed her?!!!

  • Brightside

    This is a picture of a kimono from Wiki,
    I love it. I am in awe. It’s amazing.
    This is Julia’s,
    I don’t like it at all.
    A fail. Rare from someone so elegant, but definitely a fail.

  • slambang

    Can’t stand this fake woman, no matter what she wears.

  • Darla

    Her outfit may not complement her figure, but, she is gorgeous as always!!!

  • Anna

    The wide sleeves and wide cloth sash may be kimono-inspired, but that dress ain’t a kimono.

    And it’s awfully Golden-Girlsy, but I wouldn’t call it the fugliest fug that ever fugged.

  • MllleF

    God she’s so gorgeous…DIVINE !

    Simple, classy, and this Kimono…I want the same ! It looks like a Djellabah too (an arab dress).

    I wish I could ask my dentist to give me the same smile… :-p

  • ihateph

    not only is it ugly it makes her look fat.. i think somebody like nicole ricthie can pull it off if it were longer cause that hem is weird

  • mel

    yuck!!!! i am one who only found her attractive in Mystic Pizza, all downhill from there. no style sense to be sure. word is she is no a friendly person at all, very fake. i can see that.

  • fan

    i luv Julia…gorgeous!!! and she finally attempted a different hairstyle from that long curly look she’s been sporting of late

  • fan

    omg she looks gorgeous and radiant…luv her!!! and she’s finally sporting a different ‘do than the long curly one she’s been wearing of late.

  • tom

    That is one of the worst dresses I have ever seen.

  • projectmoe

    The fabric is pretty, but the upper drape of the dress makes her look very wide. In a traditional kimono, the obi widens the figure, but here the effect is a bit disconcerting to the eye. I agree that her hair and make-up are lovely.

  • qball611

    I never heard she was fake. Where did this info come from!? I think she is beautiful!!!

  • lUCY

    Her forehead doesn’t move at all when she smiles – no botox my a**. She’s quite the liar.

  • T. Parker

    She normally looks good, but the last couple dresses have made her look bigger than she actually is. Like others have said, does she not have a mirror? Sorry, Julia, I love you and you’re an amazing actress, but this dress is not pretty.

  • http://JustJared Aqua

    I love the hair and make-up , a big improvement over yesterday, but again the kimono not so much.

  • rhymes

    Not sure what everyone is whining about – she (and the dress) look beautiful! And, yes it is not a kimono, it is however, clearly kimono-inspired.

  • Joel McHale Groupie

    It’s a little distracting and unflattering.

  • boston61

    I think she has got new breast implants to match her upper lip implant, and the botox between her eyes. She is a nasty piece of narcissism in real life from what I read.

  • max

    she looks stunning! the hair and make up are perfect and the dress is very original. nice to see her wearing some color!

  • kathi

    most of the times, kimonos look good, but sorry julia, you DON’T!

  • anonymous

    anyone else think she might be pregnant? I thought that when the last pictures of her were posted and she definitely looks fuller. Maybe it’s just too much pizza….

  • fashionista


  • Jaye

    Good Grief! Could she have made herself look any more unattractive? The woman herself is not unattractive, but she isn’t pretty either imo, but that hair style, that dress; what a mess. That dress is ill-fitting and the hair style is one my grandma has; either my Grandma is hip or Julie has gone Granny-style.
    As an actress, I’ve always thought of her as just average and way too over-rated. But I lost respect for her when she’d get vulgar and curse at the paps( on more than one occasion); she caused more of a scene than they did. Now she’s all cheesing and grinning at them because she has something to promote.

  • Two For the Raod

    I see that Julia has on another “winner”, which is probably purchased from the same rag shop Jolie gets her ugly dresses from.

  • Monica

    It’s not a “do’ or a ‘don’t”, it’s a “what the hell were you thinking?”

  • tsk tsk

    She always looks so relaxed and so comfortable. Her smile always succeeded in hiding the horrible truth. She doesnt have any style or fashion personality and she’s not classy at all. Her outfits are usually a mess, and even when they are carefully studied by her stylists, there’s always something that goes wrong.

  • Janey

    I think her stylist HATES her…but in the end you have to blame Julia. She has the power to say, ‘no,” to the dress, and instead she said, ‘YES!’ I see the way she dresses when she’s off the clock and she is a slob. I don’t think she’s really interested in fashion, and it shows.

    For those who are defending her choice and saying she looks beautiful in that outfit, I ask you: If KATE GOSSELIN was wearing the very same outfit, how would you feel about the OUTFIT then? I think we all know the answer to THAT! LOL

  • Jennifer

    I love the dress – wish I had one ….

  • sheila

    the biggest problem with this dress is the length. it should be either full length or to the knee or above the knee. this length is difficult on anyone.



  • Andy

    she dont know how to dress!!

  • sefora

    WTF is she blind ????

  • FelipeA

    The dress may not be a winner, but i’m incredibly happy that Julia took a chance and wore something that isn’t black. She’s trying to broaden her horizons fashion-wise, which is about time, but mistakes do happen. The good thing to take from this is that Julia will start being more interesting on the red carpet, and that’s great.

  • Moolie

    Could have done without the gray stripe down the middle of her scalp. Next time hit the salon for a quick dye job before your premiere.
