Carla Gugino’s Georges Chakra dress: cute or budget?


What’s the general opinion on Carla Gugino? I think she’s an extremely talented actress who never really got her breakout role, and that’s sad. I also think she’s very, very pretty, and I love that she isn’t messing with her face. She’s 39 years old, and she looks like a beautiful woman in her 30s. It’s refreshing. But as much as I like Carla, I do not love this dress. It’s a Georges Chakra Couture dress, and she wore it to last night‘s premiere of Faster, that dumb-looking action film starring The Rock. The dress looks budget – but the hair and makeup look really good. Eh. It’s a wash.


Guess who else is in the movie? Billy Bob Thornton. And his new face and his new hair. He looks… not good. CB was going to devote a whole post about Billy Bob’s budget weave/lacefront and his facelift, but thankfully, she decided against it. The Daily Mail has more on the alleged facelift – which I don’t really see. I think he might have had Botox, and maybe some kind of neck lift, maybe. But his face looks… whatever. It’s the wig/plugs situation that is really bothering me. Oh, and whatever the hell that crap is on his chin.


Here’s a shot of the whole cast. The guy on the far left is Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Doesn’t he look like a budget Jake Gyllenhaal? Weird.

    I think she looks lovely, as always. Billy Bob looks scary, again, as always.

  2. Kaye says:

    I like the dress.

  3. tooey says:

    Love Carla and agree that she’s never gotten her due. Hope she’s prominent in the next season of Californication. Don’t love the dress.

    And Billy Bob is my Ethan Hawke; my down-low shame lover. Worse yet, he got me in Bad Santa, wtf? No, I don’t get it either, but there it is…

  4. Dizzybenny says:

    i think she looks like a star from the 40’s.
    I like her alot!

  5. Amanda says:

    Wow that dress is awful. At first glance I thought it was an outfit for Skating with the Stars.

  6. lilred says:

    It looks like Billy Bob is wearing make-up.kind of scary.

  7. brin says:

    I think she looks good….like the dress and her total look.
    As for Billy Bob, really didn’t think he gave a crap about his looks.

  8. Hautie says:

    The dress = Vegas! But she is such a pretty girl I won’t hold it against her.

    Billy Bob looks better when he is cleaned up. He has his hair cut & dyed. Clean shaven and wearing a great suit. So it does make him look younger/better.

    Plus I swear he is wearing a good deal of makeup. Which will hide alot of flaws.

    But he lost so much weight years back and it made him look hard and haggard. He could take 10 years off that face it he gained a good 25 pounds.

    I love the dress, but for some reason when I read the entire thing every time you wrote Carla Gugino my brain put in Kara DioGuardi and I was like DANG, I do NOT remember her being so cute! Then I realized that you were not talking about Kara and had an, “Oooh! I get it moment.”

  10. RHONYC says:

    billy bob thorton got a whole new grill.
    like, wow.
    a definite improvement. 🙂

  11. bagladey says:

    I like the dress, but the closer it gets the cheaper it looks. Billy Bob’s fore-(seven or eight?)head is really distracting.

  12. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    The dress looks pretty budget to me. Never mind it looks bedazzled, its bunching in a really unflattering matter as she moves or heck as she is even standing still. Its bad prom dress, the kind you have made to feel special but its not done by a professional. Just someone who will do it in your budget for your prom. Bad.

    However I love Carla she is a great actress.

    BBT looks great here, not bad for however old he is but for the trailers I have seen for the movie…OMG I think I laughed a solid 10 mins at the hair they gave him for the film.

  13. Icedwavez says:

    I would have liked to seen the dress in a different color. I’m not sure how it got into the coutore colection, but I’m 50/50 on the dress. Color=meh, cut=yes. Other than that, see looks beautiful!

  14. dit says:

    I like the dress, but I take offense of the shoes. Now THAT looks like something out of Walmart!

  15. original kate says:

    looks like she’s auditioning for the ice capades.

  16. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I dont think its that bad. The dress looks ok, I just do not know who the hell she is.

    Billy Bob looks better to me for real tho. But that isnt sayin much. He’s no Johnny Depp

  17. girl says:

    Maybe Billy Bob is secretly related to Colonel Sanders? Add a ribbon tie to that mess and he’d almost look like a photo negative of Mr. KFC.

  18. 4Real says:

    She used to be such a NATURAL beauty….heavy sigh…the dress is beautiful though.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    What about the Rock? Something about his face looks off to me. I know he had his nose done some years ago but it seems there’s something else he had tweaked. Anybody else seeing it? Is it just me?

    I like Carla’s dress. The shoes are a little matchy-matchy for me but she’s a beautiful woman and she sells it.

  20. Brianna says:

    She looks great! The dress is cute.

  21. J says:

    Can I say both? I think the dress is definitely cute, but also looks a little bit budget.

  22. fizXgirl314 says:

    She looks hot!

  23. samihami says:

    Very Cute!!!

  24. gabs says:

    I think the dress looks good from far away but budget in the close up. The shoes too. Great hair and makeup though. I agree, shes an underrated actress.

    Billy bob looks disgusting. He dyed his hair? midlife crisis much? Men should let the grays stay gray.

    That other guy could be Jake G’s twin for real!

  25. Meanchick says:

    Very cute, very subtle.

  26. Amy says:

    I think she looks gorgeous. And the look on the whole has an old Hollywood vibe. I don’t think the dress would be as successful styled any other way.

  27. Samigirl says:

    She has *amazing* eyes.

  28. Newbie says:

    yikes. i don’t know that i like it. if someone else were wearing it then maybe. but i don’t think it looks good on her. it wears her instead of the other way around.

  29. Siren6 says:

    Cheap looking.

  30. sparkledog says:

    love it

  31. irishserra says:

    @I Choose Me: I was thinking the same thing about The Rock. I didn’t know he had his nose done, but I’m not surprised. He looks really… unusually tan and I was thinking the shape of his head looked funny or something. I don’t know. Maybe the angle?

  32. mia says:

    Carla looks beautiful and the dress is fine.
    However, Billy Bob looks like an undertaker!!Where’s the body, Billy Bob?

  33. kelly says:

    It’s the silver fabric that makes it look budget, but Im always down with a futuristic sparkle motif. Fits really well, and she looks amazing.

  34. Jacq says:

    At a glance, that dress looks like a spray of chest hair on her.

  35. Vee says:

    Gorgeous dress, love it!

  36. Sumo says:

    Ooh la la! Love it.

  37. amber says:

    I actually think the Oliver guy is cuter than Jake.

  38. Anti-icon says:

    Dress looks budget.

  39. sarah says:

    Oliver Jackson-Cohen is more cuter than Jake Gyllenhaal. I LOVE YOU OLIVER!! <3 Please be Finnick Odair!
