Paz de la Huerta in ballerina pink w/silver lipstick: truly awful or simply Paz?


Of course, Paz de la Huerta stumbled down the red carpet last night at the Emmys in one of her typically sleazy ensembles, but I’ve been sidelined from her entire look by that distracting, boob-hugging curl that’s trailing down the right side of her torso. Is that new? It wasn’t visible last week when Paz briefly cleaned up (in her own way), so it’s probably just a clip on curl. Thankfully, Paz wasn’t presenting (can you imagine?) but was merely in attendance to support the Boardwalk Empire nominations (one of which resulted in a Best Director, Drama Series for Martin Scorsese). For this momentous occasion, Paz donned a ballerina pink, body hugging gown that was intentionally sliced to reveal one thigh. While the cut of the dress isn’t anything that we wouldn’t expect from Paz, the color is definitely an odd choice. Perhaps she was trying to look the part of the ingenue? I’ll let that one soak in for a moment…


As is often the case, Paz’s makeup was pretty horrible — she basically ignores her eyes in favor of playing up her lips. That’s her thing, I guess, but the silvery lipstick really makes her look like one of the undead. Naturally, the Paz booty was in full effect. She’s such a terrible mess. God, I love her.


Also in tow from the Boardwalk Empire cast was the generally lovely Kelly MacDonald in a matronly black gown with some see-thru tapestry on the sleeves and semi-boob area, which was accessorized some huge, ugly green earrings and messy, unflattering hair.


Kelly is such a beautiful woman, but she’s almost more of a mess here than Paz. Then again, Kelly is a much more talented actress too — I loved her in No Country for Old Men, where she convincingly did away with her native Scottish tongue in favor of an altogether authentic Texan accent. That’s something that most American actresses fail to pull off these days. Now, if she could only find a better stylist.

    A nightmare in pink!

  2. Annie says:

    WTF? Sometimes I think she’s unconventionally gorgeous but here she looks just dreadful – the ill fitting dress, the obvious as hell fake tan, the FROSTED lipstick, the drunken facial expressions. Yuk, yuk, yuk.

  3. brin says:

    I’m going to ignore the crazy pink elephant in the “room” and just go straight to the talented and lovely Kelly MacDonald. Love her and can’t wait for BE Season 2 on Sunday!

    Truly awful AND simply Paz

  5. gab says:

    That thing in pink is disgusting. Wtf is it?

  6. Kelly says:

    Paz! She’s back. This is probably the first dress she’s worn in a while that I actually like. I love the color and the cut. However, it does clash with her orange skintone…

    How come her lipstick always cakes up on her lips? I’ve worn lipstick every day for the last, oh, 25 years, and mine never does that. I know some formulas are a little cakey, but not THAT cakey. And every single color she wears does that.

  7. RobN says:

    I like the dress; it’s everything above her shoulders that is the problem.

  8. Denver Danni says:


  9. L says:

    I love Kelly MacDonald (and her hubby-Dougie Payne from Travis!) so I always think she looks great. Super talented, super awesome.

  10. Faye says:

    She looks like a homeless meth-addict that attacked a fashionable starlet and stole her dress, earrings and shoes.

    Also I can almost hear her shouting at the photographers “GET PICTURES OF MY ASS! LOOK HOW NICE IT IS! MY ASSSS!!!” and thinking to herself “Holy shit I’m so hot. These bitches don’t even know,” followed by thoughts comprehensible only to herself.

  11. Sisi says:

    what’s with the combover…

  12. Kit says:

    I wonder how other celebs feel when they see her coming…i would, just once, love to see her doing her thing at an industry bash…

  13. Micah says:


    Clearly, she has an amazing body from the pictures, great legs too…….but…….

    Theres just so much stuff in these pics that are at odds with each other……

    I just can’t.

  14. bluhare says:

    I love her!!!

    Difference between her and Lindsay is Paz embraces her Inner Trainwreck, while Lindsay pretends she’s never ever seen a train. Or heard its toot.

  15. The Truth Fairy says:

    The dress Paz is wearing is amazing!

  16. nan says:

    Paz would be a beautiful woman if she were to clear up her act.

  17. NeNe says:

    She is so unattractive. Ugh!!!

  18. Hellen says:

    Night of the Living Dead: Horror in Pink. Paz looks like an escapee from the embalming room at the mortuary.

    Kelly just looks like crap. What is with that greasy make-up?

  19. anemoneblue says:

    Bless her heart. My God, Paz is just the ugliest looking thing I have ever seen.

  20. original kate says:

    paz is fugly as sin. what is wrong with her?

  21. Kat says:

    It’s pretty impressive that Paz looks more Lady Crackie MethBeth than Lindsay.

  22. Harley says:

    I love Paz-she’s such a deliciously hot mess – and as someone said above, she embraces her hot messiness and runs with it… :)

    Oh, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly…smh…. Why? Everything about that dress/look is awful! Love her tho. BE starts soon!!!! Yay!

  23. Mandy says:

    At my senior prom, I walked in on the school skank while she was banging her seedy-looking date in the bathroom. She looked just like Paz, orange skin, frosted lipstick, JBF hair and all. Memories.

  24. Happy21 says:

    I don’t even know who this Paz woman and when I first saw photos of her from the Emmys I thought she was a joke. Apparently not. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible. The orange tan is hideous. Especially with frosted lipstick. EW. Ugly in Pink.

  25. podzol says:

    Whhhha? Did I just read that … Kelly McDonald is almost more of a mess than Paz “rehab/morgue” de la Huerta?! Blasphemy!!! :) My love for this Scottish lass knows no bound, matronly dresses or not.

  26. Stubbylove says:

    Paz’s crazy never disappoints!

  27. phlyfiremama says:


  28. kibbles says:

    Is she on drugs? I don’t follow up much on Paz and haven’t seen any of her shows or movies. I just know of her from her red carpet disasters featured on sites such as this one. I googled her and there are photos of her when she was younger and she did not look this messed up. You have to wonder what is going on in her life right now.

  29. 4Real says:

    What a waste of an otherwise beautiful dress. Her hair confuses me and WTF is up with all that bronzer?!


  30. bagladey says:

    I like Paz’s dress and the colour; it’s Paz and HER ridiculous skin colour that spoil the whole picture.

  31. mannequin says:

    No matter what she wears Paz is the ugliest woman I do believe I’ve ever seen. Her trashy spills over into her wardrobe so there’s no fixing that. Gosh, she reminds me of Lohan.

  32. thinkaboutit says:

    I’m amazed that people keep saying “she’s be gorgeous if…” Where is the beauty? I see beady eyes, huge nose, inflated sausage lips. And then she does THIS to the mess that was already there – corpse lipstick, horrible fake tan, wacky 80s pagent hair, junkie poses? No, not seeing pretty or pretty potential at all.

  33. Deven says:

    She needs to go back to the grave. She is one of the most unattractive people alive!

  34. Cheyenne says:

    What’s with the tangerine makeup?

  35. LeeLoo says:

    I like Kelly MacDonald, especially in Trainspotting. But she needs to lose the British frumpy look.

    Who is Paz again? Is she one of the zombies from The Walking Dead? She looks like a gross zombie. A gross zombie is a gross dress and gross pink lipstick. *Shudder*

  36. Alice says:

    I don’t like Paz de la Huerta. I think she skipped past ‘hot mess’ and went right to ‘mess’. I think she’s tacky and untalented (willing to get naked on camera =/= talented). That said, I love seeing her ‘ensembles’ on the red carpet because it’s guaranteed to always be terrible! Her awful lipstick and terrifying lack of makeup on the rest of her face along with her unbrushed clip-in hair just completes the picture.

  37. Lisa says:

    I love the dress and shoes. However, the color clashes with her skin tone and the make up/ hair! Where to start with that?

  38. Gretchen says:

    Oh paz paz paz…she never makes the right colour choices, foundation: orange, cheeks MORE orange, lips: Star Trek silver.

    And still remember how she claimed jack nicholson once allegedly said she was the last real beauty or something else equally wtf, so all i can think is Bitch Please!

  39. j says:

    She is such a scuzz..still love the pictures where she tripped and fell after being turned away from an event for being too drunk.. google it! Oh yes and she recently was arrested for attacking some other actress in a restaurant.. charming

  40. the original bellaluna says:

    Paz’s dress colour isn’t really that bad (it’s more her orange skin that’s bad), but the frosted taupe lipstick belongs back in the 60′s and 70′s, where it should have stayed. Also, I don’t think the dress is “cut-out” I think it’s a slit that she’s pulling at to show off some leg.

    Kelly looks very harsh, with that pulled back hairstyle, too-heavy eyeliner, and high-necked dress.

  41. april says:

    I love the dress but not the way she’s pulling it to the side to expose her leg.

  42. wunderkindt says:

    These two need professional stylists asap! Paz’s makeup and the other chicks hair are just tragic.

  43. JaneWonderfalls says:

    This women is terrible. I have no more words for her ever again. Ever photo is the same. Terrible!

  44. Memphis says:

    She looks F*ing creepy.

  45. Catherine says:

    Lord, she is freaking gross. She just needs to go away.

  46. SueAnn says:

    She ALWAYS looks soooo bad…..

  47. Seabitchy says:

    dying. i love paz. if i were to try to strike a pose, i know it would look like one of the first two pics – horribly awkward. sigh.

  48. Camille says:

    What mia girl said.

  49. fallen says:

    I really like Paz’s dress, but she is a mess.

  50. Kim says:

    Dont know who Paz is but what is wrong with her face? Looks like she had a bad chemical peel. Is she a he?

  51. smh says:

    Just disappear already. Last thing we need is another Hohan.

  52. Connie says:

    poster #2
    “the ill fitting dress, the obvious as hell fake tan, the FROSTED lipstick, the drunken facial expressions”
    All reasons to love her! She is just so terrible in an endearing way. She just reminds me of the one awesome friend to go out with knowing to”be prepared” for the inevitable shenanigans.she has more talent than the kardashians & is more authentic than gaga so shes got my vote

  53. Cheyenne says:

    Truly awful or simply Paz… or maybe Paz is truly and simply awful…

  54. wunderkindt says:

    Paz looks so bad that I honestly did not recognize her as an actress from ‘Boardwalk Empire’.

  55. John Wayne Lives says:

    Baaaahahahha!! omg YES!!! This girl is permanently on the good Sh!t. Where did they find her lol

  56. Trashaddict says:

    I have interviewed psych patients and she gives off a serious schizo vibe (shudders).

  57. clare says:

    Would love to see her replace Evan Rachel Wood In True Blood. She’d be awesome!

  58. Swan Jacca says:

    Who IS this dude?

  59. Dhavy says:

    I don’t who is a worse crackhead this woman or LLohan

    Must be a competition

  60. Penguin says:

    She is pretty with a good figure why does she set out to look deliberately ugly. Get a makeup artist and stylist paz.

  61. Shelb says:

    Forget the lip makeup – Her face is incredibly darker than her body. It looks terrible. She could have sex appeal beyond “easy lay” if she didn’t look like an easy lay.

  62. trh says:

    Goddess bless her hot mess

  63. moonage says:

    Steven Tyler in drag, ’nuff said.

  64. Twez says:

    I have seen 45-year-old meth addicts that look cleaner and classier than Paz de la Huerta.

  65. SarahS says:

    Ok, so I too had to Google this woman to see older pictures. And at one point, before she went all “Off the deep end” she looked great. But I really need to wonder, how much of this is actual drug/alcohol and how much is just sly self-promotion? But holy hell, is she really just 27????

  66. sc-wha-tt says:

    I love how in every picture, Paz is holding the slit of her dress OPEN with her fingers. Crazypants!

  67. mzfilo55 says:

    WOW, she’s pretty horrendous!! She looks sweaty & sticky (not in a good way either)!!
