Katherine Heigl in Maria Lucia Hohan in Paris: flattering or fug?

One of the (few) things I’ve always liked about Katherine Heigl is that she’s not a small girl. She’s tall, she has a lovely bust, she’s got “soft” looking figure. I’m sure she’s toned and everything – but she doesn’t look like she spends all of her free time doing yoga and Pilates, which I appreciate. She looks like she eats normal food and struggles with a diet and exercise program, just like most women. And like most women, I think Heigl struggles to figure out what kind of styles flatter her figure. Some days, she gets it right, but for the most part, Heigl’s style really, really sucks.

So here are new photos of Heigl at the French premiere of One for the Money, the Stephanie Plum movie that kind of bombed this past weekend. Heigl wore this custom Maria Lucia Hohan which… it’s really pretty from the front. I don’t think the bust fits Heigl the way it should, but it’s very pretty. From the back, though… rough. That sheer panel looks like Heigl’s control-top pantyhose is creeping up, and it makes her back look… bad.

Still, you can tell Heigl loves her dress, and she wants to flutter her skirt around, even at the expense of her husband trying to kiss on her. Poor Josh. I actually like Heigl’s makeup and hair too – I think this look is mostly a win. She just should pose over-the-shoulder.

    i like it but it wrinkles at the bottom a good steaming goes a long way

    I hate that sheer back panel, but everything else is amazing, imo. I would KILL for that dress (and the body to pull it off)! I love it!

      Oh I love it too! I was so taken aback by how lovely she looks. Even the hair looks good with the dress. Finally!

      And the word for a woman of her stature and physique is “Amazon”.

    Holy undergarments! Is that some sort of leftover from her LDS days?

    A friend of mine from Central Europe posted that pic on her FB page, and congratulated her friend Maria Lucia Hohan – so, based on whatever degrees of separation are going on here, I’m going to congratulate the designer too! I would do so anyway – the colour is gorgeous, the fit is flattering, and the back panel doesn’t bother me as much as I thought it would from the description. Win!

    I love love love love that dress, and it looks great on her.

    I like the dress, but I find extreme cleavage to be tasteless. Sorry, but there’s nothing elegant about tits on toast. The color and flow of this dress are very pretty though.

    I everything about the dress except the color.

  8. Tapioca says:

    The hair!!

    The dress is fine, but why is her hair so, so awful all the goddamn time?

    • Jaxx says:

      Too right! Her hair either looks like a grandma helmet or a bad haircut. Why can’t she get it right?

  9. hatsumomo says:

    Whenever I wear a dress that flares at the bottom I like to flounce around in it too. It feels so princessy and girly!

    It’s pretty, but that back panel is just weird. Other than that I like it.

    She seems to have large facial features, kind of like Anne Hathaway…I wonder if a different hairstyle / color would be more flattering?

    I really enjoyed Katherine’s look when she had longer hair. For some reason her shorter do matures her way too much

  12. foozy says:

    wow! she looks amazing! it’s the first time i see her this good

  13. Lauren says:

    She is so boring..i cannot sit through any of her movies. I love Kate Winslet, she always delivers in every one of her movies. Sorry.

  14. JudyJudyJudy says:

    very pretty.

    The back panel and train don’t do it for me. Like, the train could be all right, but it looks all crumpled and sad dragged on the floor. If it was just floor length it would still be fine.

    I generally don’t like her, but she looks rather nice here. Just little issues with that panel…I don’t know if that was supposed to be uncovered by the top layer of the dress or not..

    edit: I got a better look at the train. when walking/all the way out, it looks good, but when pooled around her ankles it looks bad.
