    What the hell? Something it’s wrong with her skin! =S

  • TexasLovin

    Bad lighting or overly orange oompa loompa tan??

  • tara

    Bad lighting…that’s all. It’s all about lighting at these things. Good lighting can make you look better than you actually look and vice verse.

  • GoldenBlitch

    Terrible lighting. Has to be. Leighton is flawless. ;)

  • boo!

    Why is she so orange?! Even her hair looks orange!

  • Sabrina

    An oompa lumpa with a dress (nice by the way) !

  • Em

    This dress makes her bigger. No no no.

  • ck

    Has she been hagning out with that Mom from New Jersey?????

  • Steph

    This scared the crap out of me

  • MaisyRL

    i adore Leighton. but this looks horrendous. i *get* wearing Marchesa. but the color of the gown does nothing to compliment her. and she is overly tanned. it looks like she went to the same tanning place Xtina Aguilera used to go to…she almost looks latina or hispanic…that’s how dark she is. Leighton is a mess from head to toe. i’m kind of sad….i was hoping she’d look decent. :(

  • Molly

    Wow, she looks awful. Marchesa had a weak line this season and the hair and make up ages her about 20 years

  • Armyof1

    Gown is beautiful, makeup and hair awful.

  • IllWill

    Must be orange fluorescent lighting, Amber looked like that too

  • mintmintmint

    she looks like being poisoned.

  • Mixie

    paparazzi & fans at the met gala went crazy over this. must be just bad lighting because i read she looked gorgeous.

  • lily

    I was JUST watching gossip girl and thinking how beautiful Leighton (Blair is). This is Not a good look for her though!!

  • A lister


  • T

    There are more pics on Getty and her skin does not look orange. The lighting in these pic is really bad.

  • DarkEmpress

    @Wes: SPRAY TAN

  • tijaz

    she doesn’t look orange in this..

    It’s just bad lightning in these pics people..

    she looks absolutely gorgeous!

  • siennagold

    Don’t like the dress. Her hair and makeup made her look older than she really is. Love her but the overall look is a fail.

  • Macy

    Love the dress, but dayum! Where did she get that tan? Awful. And that lipstick doesn’t look good with her style.

  • Delphic

    Marchesa makes the ugliest dresses. Pure McQueen and Galliano rip-offs. Someone should sue them already. Leighton usually has better taste in designers, I’m so disappointed. She should’ve been with Marc Jacobs!

  • Lara

    Everyone needs to stop talking about this “tan” she has because it’s not that intense. It’s the lighting. In her other pictures, her skin looks perfect. People need to stop assuming things and actually be rational. Go on Getty and compare and contrast for all I care. She looks gorgeous.

  • roxy

    love that dress! maybe it makes her look bigger than she really is, but who cares, she’s still delicious!
