Christina Aguilera’s orange look: just horrible or just bad lighting?


The weirdest thing just happened. As I was looking at these new photos of Christina Aguilera looking like ten different kinds of jacked, I also noticed photos of several other women at the same event (something for the LA County Museum of Art). Every single woman at the event looks completely waxy and frozen and puffy and sketchy. Maybe it was just extraordinarily bad lighting? Of course, the other women are Teri Hatcher and Rosanna Arquette and Kim Kardashian, who must have been thrilled to be the least cat-like of them all. Anyway, people are now talking about Christina’s appearance because she looks like she’s gained some weight. Um… who’s looking at her body when her face looks like that?

Christina’s got curves. Clad in a form-fitting frock, the 29-year-old mother of one looked curvier than ever at a bash at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art over the weekend.

It was a startling contrast from the singer’s svelte figure a few months ago. A source tells Britain’s Daily Mail that “it’s bizarre Christina has put on so much weight as she’s been doing lots of dancing and high energy work for Burlesque [out in November]. The whole movie is choreography and she was very active so I’m surprised she’s piled on the pounds so quickly.”

In 2008, Aguilera — who just returned from Nicole Richie’s Mexican bachelorette bash — told Us Weekly she felt “a sense of accomplishment” after shedding 40 lbs. she gained during her pregnancy with son Max, now 2. At the time, her weight loss plan included cardio workouts, weight training, and stretching five times a week. She also followed a strict protein, veggie and whole grain diet.

In July, she said in the U.K. magazine Company that whatever size women are, “we shouldn’t be ashamed of ourselves or our bodies.”

Yeah, I have no problem with Christina being curvy or curvier than she used to be. She looks fine in that sense – even though I think that at this point, she should really just take out her implants because they look kind of gross. But other than that, her body looks good. It’s the face that bothers me. And the skin.



BUT… everyone looked like hell. It might have been some horrendous lighting.

    Wow, poor ladies. As far as Christina and Terri are concerned, they are both beautiful but pour on the makeup.I don’t get it, especially after seeing both of them without any makeup and looking 100% better.

    Kim looks like she put on a damn mask. WTF? Why does she wear SO much makeup?

  2. texasmom says:

    They may all look odd/wretched, but she is the ONLY ONE who is ORANGE. So I vote for just horrible!

  3. Heather says:

    Wow. No one looks good.

  4. Marjalane says:

    While they all looked bad, no one rivaled Christina! Her make up artist must have hit the crackpipe before doing her. Is there no one with any honesty in Hollywood who will tell some of these girls that all that make up ages them tremendously?! C.A.’s clown face made Kim Kardashian look almost normal. Almost.

  5. Samigirl says:

    Christina has been rocking this clown look for the past several years. She looks like such a skank. You are a mommy, and you have the means to make yourself up nicely. So do it.

  6. gillie says:

    whats up with olivia’s greasy hair?!

  7. Girafe99 says:

    Christina is a pretty woman but she seems to be intent on becoming a caricature of Monroe

  8. Hautie says:

    I blame it on the air brush technique.

    Instead of using a standard liquid foundation and a nice light powder, they are using the pro style air brush makeup.

    Which just comes off looking too heavy. And way too orange. Then all the glitter blush for that extra splash of sparkle.

    Kim K. just needs to lay off all the extreme liner and eyeshadows. She is a pretty girl without all the bizarre eye makeup.

    She reminds me of Donna Mills/Knots Landing circa 1988.

    Or dare I say she truly looks like a Mary Kay sales rep circa 1985. 🙂 They LOVED all that layered up eye shadow. Then the dramatic liner.

  9. Katie says:

    In general I think Christina’s styling is terrible. And she always has way too much makeup on. I mean, I can’t even imagine having that much shit on my face. It’s insane the way she piles it on.

  10. HAHAHAHA says:

    See lady’s thats what spray tan and orange injections make you look like.

    You look like a fool!

  11. Abby says:

    I wonder if it was hot and humid.. everyone looks shiny, and not in a good way.

  12. Trillion says:

    She’s probably able to go incognito sans make-up. Who the hell even knows what she even looks like under all that.

  13. ann says:

    OMG her hair line is even orange. Who do they think they’re fooling.

  14. xxodettexx says:

    it’s like she jumped into a pool full of foundation and soaked for a week! just horrid

  15. Super Sleuth says:

    I think it is a combination of poor lighting (Molly Simms) and bad make-up.

    You can see the orange make-up in Christina’s hairline around her forehead in the top picture.

    That last picture of Teri Hatcher looks like a Halloween mask.


  16. WelshBoy21 says:

    She is a bit to orange but sorry she is still F****NG HOT lol
    All the others look weird, Christina looks hot.

  17. Jillian says:

    Does anyone else remember a few years ago when Christina had ginormous boobs? I am thinking she had implants removed. She is several cup sizes smaller now.

  18. guesty says:

    everyone is so shiny. they prolly think they look ‘dewy’. ha.

    christina’s makeup is horrendous…but that wig or her extensions are worse.

  19. liz says:

    She just wears too much damn makeup! I always thought she had a subtle and delicate beauty without all of that goop!

  20. Kelly says:

    What in holy hell is going on in these pics??? Cosmetics nightmare! The only one who looks even remotely normal is Olivia what’s-her-name. I don’t know a thing about her except that she’s really skinny and has beautiful eyes.)

    How did it get to be the norm that “celebrities” wear so much makeup? How could anyone possibly look in the mirror and think she looks good with all that dark, aging, smeary shimmer or clown cheeks (I’m talking to you, Teri Hatcher, and you, Molly Sims)?

  21. OXA says: in the midst of a heatwave, with triple digit temps they broke records from 1991. Its a wonder their faces didn’t melt and slide off, oh and I can not bare to look at her fakeness.

  22. serena says:

    oh god they all looked like hell. really.
    I didn’t know Christina had breast implants.. I mean, I didn’t even notice. However she is way to orange XD too bad.

  23. TQB says:

    Let’s just agree to give everyone at this event a pass. It was quite obviously hot, humid, and terribly lit. So maybe Xtina’s make up was worse than everyone else’s, but for today, she gets by.

    As for the neck down, however, am I the only one who thinks she’s preggers again? Didn’t Burlesque finish shooting MONTHS ago?

  24. Shy says:

    Christina looks awful lately. Her career went kaput after she gave birth. She is overweight (for herself). The hips, legs (when you see her on other occasions). Just like Jennifer Lopez career went downhill after she gave birth. They try to return but the train has already gone. Jlo was replaced by Lady Gaga, Christina by Kesha. Christina really should spent all her money and try to by from songwriters good Superhit song. Because you can be superfamous and pretty but if your songs sucks you are finished. If you have very good song – everyone will play her and you will be relevant.

  25. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    If I looked like that, I keep my ass home till I looked normal.

  26. Cheyenne says:

    Jesus, she looks like a desiccated tangerine.

  27. hairball says:

    What is with these celebrities and turning themselve orange – ORANGE??

    She looks like she hasn’t washed her make-up off in a week and just kept re-applying. Disgusting.

    Enough with the blowing of kisses. OMG!!

  28. Keyanna says:

    Christina is a beautiful woman without all of that makeup. And those implants HAVE to go. Her voice is amazing though. You can’t deny her talent.

  29. The Truth Fairy says:

    Daily Mail was calling her fat …

  30. original kate says:

    aw, the oompa loompa is blowing kisses! how sweet.

  31. Squirrel says:

    Shame the talent is lying dormant somewhere while she spends so much time and money on fakery (I know it has been years but those breasts with a mile between them and pointing in different directions still are annoying! that video with her singing some ballad in a nightgown on a wooden box had me wondering if she can just tuck them under her armpits at night), orange (is she somehow contractually bound to do this?!) and generally trying to be someone else. Beautiful dress though. Could be very classy on natural looking skin. Damn, what a strange choice of action for someone with such talent, assistance and youth! One day she’ll be looking back wondering what on earth she was thinking. Either that or her bathroom light needs fixing… She’s too young to suffer the Barbara Cartland make-up effect for life.

  32. lucy2 says:

    It’s really a shame – she’s a naturally pretty woman and one of the few truly talented pop singers out there, her voice is great.
    Why does she have to do that to herself? She needs to give up the shock value approach, Gaga has that cornered – just make good music!

  33. wunderkindt says:

    The orange is also unevenly distributed on her arms and chest. . . If you’re going to do this at all, at least make it a consistent orange instead of a blotchy orange Marilyn.

    Dont think she looks fat-the curves are hot, but the orange is NOT.

  34. Kittypants says:

    She looks absolutely horrendous, a tangerine nightmare. As others have said, she is naturally very attractive, so I don’t understand why she feels the need to trowel on the cosmetics.

  35. Yasmine says:

    She looks like a high-class prostitute. So sad….

  36. jm says:

    She’s not fat but always look heavy b/c those stupid fake boobs stick straight out to the sides. That is one bad boob job.

  37. Chickadees4me says:

    xtina just looks ill, like bad jaundice 🙁

    away with the orange trend!!

  38. jodie says:

    Bad makeup and unflattering dress color but if she’s happy go for it. I just wish shed come out with a decent album again and not oversing every song.bionic was terrible. Bring back the christina of ten years ago!

  39. hapygoleslie says:

    she looks sooo dirty!!but they all look like shiny shit!

  40. craigc says:

    These people are all mentaly ill…

  41. LBees says:

    What caught my eye was the distinct color difference shown at her hair line. Look at the top of her head: very pale under the hair. Then her face is totally orange. Too much orange! Nooo x 1.0000M…

  42. nj says:

    Oh for pete’s sake, Christina. Wash off the makeup and get those disgusting implants taken out. You will look ten years younger.

  43. Crash2GO2 says:

    Olivia Wilde looks natural and pretty. The rest have way too much makeup on.

  44. citmyway says:

    Someone should really inform her that she would be so much prettier without all that makeup. She just looks dumb…

  45. tromba says:

    It looks like someone forgot to bury these skanks after they died.

  46. Confuzzle says:

    Was it a Wizard of Oz themed party?

  47. lucy2 says:

    Ugh, I just looked through the photos again – Teri’s face pains me. And it looks like someone shaved off Christina’s eyebrows and drew them back in with a gray pencil. WHY???

  48. kimberly says:

    no it’s not just the lighting. It’s the hair and makeup too. the hair is far to light and the make up looks like glamour shots. ya that’s right I said glamour shots.

    I think the lighting is just realistic.

  49. Anoni Mus says:

    I actually like Christina with a bit more flesh on her bones, it suits her.
    But that platinum blonde has GOT to go. Sheesh. And let’s not start with the makeup. Horrid.

    Meh on all other ladies.

  50. gg says:

    Skankulara has always been all about the horrible makeup and hair and styling, and is the Original Pickled Loompa. Absolutely horrible, always through the years. She has terrible self image problems obviously.

    Now that I look closely at her, check out the masque du l’orange at her hairline part. I would swear she’s dyed some of the hair by her jaw and sides orange by accident, and the part is white. Weird.

  51. Conando says:

    It’s both: she’s too tan & it’s bad lighting. With a lighter tan, she’d look great:

  52. jemshoes says:

    Just goes to show what Hollyweird beauty looks like under real lights / lighting!

  53. bored says:

    Wow, look at her hairline. Way too much tanner. Even if it was a human colour you’d notice the demarcation between her scalp and face with that very light blonde hair bleached down to the root.

  54. Sam says:

    Why can’t Christina ever be natural? she cakes on tons of make-up and this Marilyn Monroe wannabe look is getting old come on she’s no Marilyn talk about identity crisis.
