Julia Roberts in a bright white three-piece suit: hideous, tragic or awesome?


Julia Roberts’ “Abominable Fashion Disaster Tour: Europe” continued on Wednesday, when Julia made a pit stop in England for the official UK premiere of Eat, Pray, Love. This time, Our Jules eschewed jewel tones, tacky belts, muumuus and f-cked up hemlines to bring us this. This… three piece white pantsuit. With a pink/blush collarless long-sleeved blouse. Ugh. Julia. For the love of God.

Just note – if this were Cate Blanchett in the exact same look, I would be loving it. Probably because I love Cate and I think she walks on water. Plus, Cate has the quirky high-fashion credibility to make a boxy, bright white, three-piece suit work. Cate would make this look like an Yves Saint Laurent ad from the 1970s. But Julia makes it look like she performs tricks at the budget circus. And not good tricks either. Sad tricks. Tricks that will make you avert your eyes and mutter, “maybe I should go.”

Look how boxy she looks! And she really looks knocked up in a bunch of these photos. What is wrong with you Julia? Why can’t you ever get it right? I mean, I’m assuming she’s not pregnant, and it’s just her hideous clothes that make appear that way. If she is pregnant, mazel tov, etc. Also: these are the first photos from Julia’s European tour where I really think she’s had a lot of work done to her face. Maybe she got some emergency Botox in London, or maybe it’s just a harsher flash used by the British photographers, I have no idea. But Julia is looking very cat-faced.

    Suit horrible.

    And how many teeth does Julia Roberts have? Like 20000?

  2. Bunny says:

    Wow, that is one unfortunate fitting suit.

  3. Lynnie says:

    It’s after Labor Day!!! No more white suits!

  4. dorothy says:

    Why are the pants dragging the ground? Do they not have tailors in Hollywood? Besides, the suit makes her look like she’s going to High School homecoming. Who is this womans stylist?

  5. Emma says:

    Not feeling this look.

    Kaiser, I’m so with you regarding Cate. Sometimes she wears outfits that make me go O.O, but she should be Tim Gunn’s “make it work” poster child, because she can usually pull them off. Of course, it helps she has more class and elegance in her little finger than Julia has in her entire body.

  6. melina says:

    Wow, she always disappoints. Her outfits are a disaster. This suit is pretty classic and would look slightly better IMO if it was better fitted.
    I don’t think she’s had any work done or at least any significant work done. She is a Hollywood actress so I suppose she has to visit a dermatologist/plastic surgeon all the time.

  7. geenie says:

    It’s not a horrible suit – the problem is the fitting. The jacket and pant proportions of need to be fixed.

  8. geenie says:

    It really bugs me when people live by that stupid rule that you don’t wear white after Labor Day. A true fashionista knows that anything goes all year round. You can wear white pieces any day of the year, as long as you can make it work. That’s a true fashion guru.

    That Labor Day rule is for people that need help with fashion and style.

  9. Eleonor says:

    What’s wrong with her upper lip?It looks weird!
    That outfit..no, it’s not fitting, too large.

  10. brin says:

    Awwww….it’s just her tribute to John Travolta…..stayin alive….stayin alive!

  11. JohnnyDepp'sgirl says:

    doesnt she have a gazillion dollars? why can she not hire someone to dress her accordingly? and I still think she’s pregnant.

  12. ME says:

    Agreed- she should have gotten this suit fitted. I’m also focusing on her split ends. I have really long hair, but now I feel better knowing that I’m not the only one with a few split ends (I mean I’m comparing my hair to Kim K who NEVER has a split end)… I can sleep better knowing that Julia has some too :)

    Thank you Kaiser, for a hearty morning laugh.

    re: the suit…it’s not terrible on it’s own, but it’s not really red-carpet material, and it’s SO ill-fitting, like most of her outfits. this is one celeb who definitely needs a stylist. (or a NEW stylist…)

  14. Anaya says:

    The pantsuit looks hideous on her. Julia has never really been a fashion icon. She’s was always kinds bohemian. The only time throughout her life and career that she looked incredible style wise was when she dated Benjamin Bratt. They broke up after about 3 or 4 years and she’s looked crappy (again) ever since.

  15. Bridget says:

    Oh my god What on earth does she think she’s doing!

  16. bizzy says:

    i don’t understand. my brain hurts. does julia not have a full-length mirror? does julia not have a clue? or does julia just not have a shit she could give?

    sob. i don’t even like julia particularly, but it’s breaking my heart to see any woman throw away with both hands the opportunity to look absolutly fantastic.

  17. telesma says:

    It’s a little Saturday Night Fever, and the color is not great for her…but relatively speaking? It’s not that bad. Not when you compare it to other things she’s been wearing lately. She’s definitely been going for shapeless and style-less lately. I’d say this is an improvement.

  18. bizzy says:

    kaiser, if this were cate blanchett, she’d have had the suit fitted before she wore it.

  19. Stronzilla says:

    At least Cate would have had her pants hemmed to the appropriate length.

  20. PsychicEyes says:

    Pregnant or not I agree she needs a stylist who can properly fit her clothing to accomadate the swelling body — a little bit loose around the tummy and thighs, slimmer around the shoulders and arms. How about some tropical blues, greens, pinks and yellows or a neutral black to minimize the bulge. Add some smart jewellery and a pair of sexy shoes. Finally, add a few carmel highlights in the front locks; seriously it does not take much. BTW, my theory as to why she did not announce her pregnancy is due to Jav and Penelopes announcemnt.

  21. Lynnie says:

    @Geenie: Be bugged all you want, Sweetheart. Anything DOES NOT go. White and summer weight fabrics don’t work in the dead of winter. They look ridiculous in January.

    I’m well aware that it’s only September and we still have summery temperatures, but it’s time to transition.

  22. telesma says:

    I’m just wondering if she’s paying a stylist to dress her in this ugly-a-thon she’s been wearing, or if she’s dressing herself. As bad as her clothes have been lately, they do all seem to have a similar aesthetic, so I’m betting on a stylist, and no one will tell her how bad she looks, like in the Emperor’s New Clothes.

  23. Holly says:

    I wish it was a bit more fitted, but I actually dig the whole pant-suit thing.

  24. citmyway says:

    OOH DEAR, her style is so bad bad bad!!!!

  25. Melissa says:

    How did she not trip in those pants? And yes, that jacket needs to be fitted. The vest would be for somebody trying to show off their waist or create a waist, but then she throws on that huge ill-fitted jacket and doesn’t button it up. And she’s grabbing at her stomach again!

  26. K-MAC says:

    why are her hands always in that position? Whatever she is focused on hiding, she is drawing our attention to it.

  27. a says:

    intentional “hand on the stomach” pose…

    she’s wearing red shoes with white and peach?

  28. dread pirate cuervo says:

    The idea is awesome. But Grandma’s peach bingo blouse needs to go. The vest should be the shirt & the suit should be formfitting. Also, it should be worn by someone less hideous and tragic than Julia Roberts. Cannot stand her for whatever reason. Never could.

  29. bagladey says:

    This big, plain, pointy face full of teeth in another inexpensive-looking, vintage-looking get-up. Horrible.

  30. Statler says:


    Loved your comment! Hope he beats her with his walking stick.

  31. RHONYC says:

    she’s going for that look on queen sofie-anne in true blood season 3. remember, that chic white 3-piece suit dripping in pearls. evan wore the f%ck outta that bad boy. “i want my hadleyyyy!”


    julia looks sloppy in this version.
    would it have killed her to splurge on a fuggin tailor?

    jussayin. :-(

  32. cat says:

    I love the pantsuit idea, but she should have dropped my mom’s peach ruffled shirt from the 70′s have it fitted and maybe went with just a fitted suit top and some layered jewelry and she does need to get her hair trimmed, when are these movie premiers for EPL going to be over, it’s going to be out on DVD before she comes back to the states and she’s still hawking it.

  33. Isa says:

    I think she looks pretty in white, but the suit doesn’t fit well and makes her look wide.

  34. Crash2GO2 says:

    RED SHOES with that ansemble is enough to send me into a downward spiral of nausea.

  35. Julia says:

    Everything she has worn on this promotional tour looks like it came from Primark. Why?! I’m assuming a small fortune was spent on kitting her out…(Note – actually, I have clothes from Primark that look better than this suit!)

  36. bb says:

    I swear every time I see Julia, her nose is a bit pointier and her teeth are a bit longer. Ugh.

  37. Lauri says:

    @Danielle – my thoughts exactly “tragic” is the only word to describe a pantsuit that is not tailored, too long and the shoes with the blouse are so wrong. I wonder if she has Goopy’s feelings about being amongst the peasants and that we should be in awe of her and her style

  38. Kiska says:

    It isn’t cut right for her body. If it were more fitted, it may have looked better on her.

  39. original kate says:

    that suit looks like it was tailored by danny’s ex-wife.

  40. skibunny says:

    Yikes! Well to be on the positive side she looks like she washed her hair. It usually looks greasy to me…..in fact I get the unwashed vibe from her most of the time. She has definately packed on a few pounds around the middle so I’m going with pregnant. Time will tell.
    Either way that outfit looks like another travesty.

  41. RHONYC says:

    @ original kate:

    that suit looks like it was tailored by danny’s ex-wife.



    bwahahahahah. :-)

  42. iKat says:


    But i still have love for Julia Roberts.
    She does not look like shes had botox here. I think she’s gorgeous

  43. Aqua says:

    all that money and she still can’t dress herself.Every outfit she wears is ugly for one reason or another.

  44. PsychicEyes says:

    Wanna know what is really tragic? Being awarded a huge multi-million dollar Lacome contract and dressing like shit at your movie premieres. Now, that is tragic.

  45. Ruffian9 says:

    “Tom Wolfe much?”

    Actually LOL’d. Thanks for that, Chris.

  46. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like it, but it’s one of the lesser offensive things she’s worn lately. Frumpy and ill fitting once again.

    Totally agree about Cate B – I’m convinced she can wear anything. Stuff I’d hate on anyone else I love on her, and she has a natural confidence and always owns it.

  47. bubby says:

    Betty White wants her outfit back.

  48. whatever says:

    Why is she wearing Danny’s 3 piece suit he wore at his prom in the 80′s?

  49. bosc says:

    Awful. She is obviously dressing herself because no self-respecting stylist would let her out of the house in what she’s been wearing on this tour.

  50. original kate says:

    “Tom Wolfe much?”

    @chris: all she needs is the hat, LOL!
