    A joke Says:

    Lupita’s outfit looks like a carnival dress next to Karoline Kurkova, Charlize Theron…..

  26. 26


    It’s NOT about pushing the limits.This year the Met Gala was a homage to these kind of ball gowns.

    Lupita’s outfit looks like a fishing net.

    GMA was just talking about her never missing in her fashion choices. I guess that’s going to change today. Where is going? To an Indian convention.

    What a bunch of unimaginative country hicks posting on here. The girl is fab, funny and gorgeous!

    Peaches Says:

    OK here are the good points. I love her hair and makeup up and the shape and cut of the dress is really flattering on her. Now for the not so good points: I hate the colour of the dress and its netting. The whole I can’t stand. Epic fail.

    HORRIBLE Says:

    Her hair is just as horrible as her dress.

    mom50 Says:

    The dress would get pass if it wasn’t for that horrid head band, I agree though that she is a beautiful lady

    Karoline Kurkova dress is imaginative and gorgeous.

    Lupita is the loser of the night.

    Blythe Says:

    Beyond the dress, it’s her hair that’s scaring me. Her stylists are suffering from creative fatigue. They’ve been going downhill since she won the Oscar.

    tammy Says:

    The dress is hideous.And she is ugly no matter what she wears.Too much overated and too much exposed.And yet no good roles in any movies to come.

    Lupita is human–her first fashion misstep.

    This is what happens when she gets to choose her own outfit

    Cate Says:

    She looks ridiculous and it doesn’t ven fit the ‘Charles James’ theme. I’ll always give people credit if they take a risk but are at least trying to adhere to the theme but this is just a mess. At least her make-up and face are pretty and she seems to be having fun I suppose!

    BrainScience Says:

    She’s ugly.

    The only reason you think she’s pretty is cause the media keeps telling you that she’s pretty and so you believe it cause you’re a follower. Then they continue to bombard you with pictures of her and the same comments, hello repitition wires your brain to think you’re the one who finds her pretty. You’re brainwashed!

    I see her without the rose colored glasses and trust me she’s not pretty. Her eyes are bloodshot.

    Mary Says:

    U r blind nd color-struck. The media has brainwashed people for centuries that dark is ugly and manly nd u accepted. I bet you don’t find people with lupita’s skin tone/ hair as pretty.
    She has the perfect face…perfect facial symetry according to the scientific formula for perfect human face.Her bone structure is AMAZING

    It’s okay if u don’t find her pretty…there are many that thought she was beautiful before the mass media exposure.
    You just have to deal with the fact that a lot people genuinely find her pretty/beautiful.

    I like her dress. There’s some fun and spunk in the style.

    JLu Says:

    @BrainScience: Welcome to my world where blonde hair and blue eyes are ALWAYS referred to as beautiful and from what I’ve seen, most blondes are average at best! Everyone keeps telling us it’s soooooo beautiful!?!
