Rumer Willis shows off her ombre hair & a slinky LBD: awful or cute?

These are more photos from this weekend’s premiere/screening of American Horror Story: Asylum. Most of the people I’m about to discuss aren’t even IN this season’s AHS. But maybe they want to get in with producer/creator/writer Ryan Murphy? Perhaps. Let’s start with Rumer Willis. This is one of the main reasons I’m doing this post. Does anyone else think it’s weird that Rumer “goes away” for a few months at a time and we literally have no idea where she is, and then she re-emerges and suddenly she’s walking every red carpet? That’s what it feels like. And with every red carpet, her hair gets worse. This whole look is an utter disaster – the dress sucks, it makes her body look weird, her hair looks awful, and… well, I just can’t even go on. Rumer has a new boyfriend, you know. His name is Jayson Blair. Do you pronounce it “Jason” or “JAY. Son.”? Unknown.

Jessica Lange is in the new season. You know what’s a horror story? Her plastic surgery. She used to be absolutely stunning.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith came out to support Ryan Murphy. Lea is wearing Armani – it’s a pretty dress. She’s over-dressed for the event, though.

Zachary Quinto always looks so hot when he’s in a suit and wearing his glasses. Seriously.

Chloe Sevigny is a fashion disaster. Surprisingly enough, though, I find comfort in it. This dress is awful and everything, but she just makes me happy. She thinks she’s being so avant-garde. She’s not – it’s just an ugly dress.

    The Ombré trend really needs to die , it looks cheap and just makes the person look like they need a root job bad!!! Rumers whole look is unfortunate.

    • DEB says:

      Nose completely ruined with plastic surgery. Totally.

      • themummy says:

        Her nose has always looked like that (unfortunate since there is very little to work with if she did want to get a nose job). She’s had other surgery, though.

      • Cam S says:

        @ DEB:
        Her nose looks so PINCHED. Everyone in Hollywood gets a nose job- Rumor has my vote to go ahead with that. They shaved down her chin ever so slightly and it looks better.
        I’m not being harsh either, she has chosen to be a model and actress and it is a very non-forgiving industry

    • muffin says:

      i love the ombre trend…!

    • Lee says:

      Actually I feel sorry for her. Beautiful mother, handsome father and not so pretty children. You can say that she didn’t win in genetic lottery.

      • Raven says:

        Facially, that is true, but she’s got a great body.

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        I think a lot of people mistake ‘charisma’ or having sex appeal for *real* true beauty. Rumer’s parents when you actually, really look at them, aren’t that great looking. Demi isn’t really that pretty, but she has that lovely hair and her and Bruce have that ‘it’ factor that makes them seem ‘more’ than they really are, if you get what I mean. The fact that they had not so attractive kids doesn’t surprise me to be honest.

        Now if you take a look at Cindy Crawford and her hubby’s kids for a different example, they are absolute knockouts and take after the parents in a good way because both of the parents are truly *very* genetically gifted (Randy doesn’t have the ‘it’ or charisma factor, but facially he has good genes and he was also a model way back when).


      • Turtle Dove says:

        I think she looks quite pretty here, and, as another poster commented, Rumer has a great figure.

        I think people need to stop with the ‘unfortunate face’, ‘gene pool’, and ‘gorgeous parents’ comments. Everyone has unique features. No one is physically perfect – including me and you.

      • Alexa says:

        I am heartened by Turtle’s reply (above) and second it! The cruel remarks need to leave the everyday chit-chat arena.

      • Me Too says:

        Sorry but have to disagree on both parents being beautiful. Bruce is not that hot…just smart enough to capitalize on being an action star. He shaves his head because he began going bald young…another good choice. But to call him good looking is a stretch. I hate talking about women’s looks but have to say that Demi and Bruce, unlike most celebrities, did not create beautiful children. But they are interesting looking.

    • lori says:

      yes, ombre is so awful. I’ve not seen it on anyone where it looked nice.

  2. Miffy says:

    What? That’s how Lea Michele always dresses to watch a tv show. What’s the problem?

    Zachary Quinto is beautiful. Is he in the new series of AHS? I thought Jessica Lange was the only returning face?

    The modelling agency my friend works for recently rang her to tell her to get rid of her ombré dye job because ‘it’s cheap, peasant hair and only an excuse for soccer moms to not get their roots done.’ I feel that sums up Rumer Willis’ hair and ruined ombré hair for me forever.

    • Steph says:

      Zachary quinto is gorgeous, and yes he is!

      • Ashley says:

        Actually, several actors/actresses are retuning! Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, and I believe the actress who played the older Moira, though I can’t remember the actress off the top of my head.

      • Miffy says:

        I was going to watch it anyway but I have to now.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I just hope AHS Asylum lives up to the first season. The pried-open eye-ball scene is SERIOUSLY turning me off! BLERGH!

      Plus, the first season of AHS was really, REALLY good. There wasn’t a lot of stunt-casting, and I appreciated how the house’s back-story was thoroughly presented in small doses, throughout the season.

  3. moptop says:

    It might look alright if her hair were not tangled and ratty at the ends. Maybe a good conditioning treatment?

  4. Boo says:

    Rumer and Chloe could have a chin-off contest.

    My money’s on Rumer for the win.

    • wild flower says:

      Why pick on chins? It’s not like these girls did something ridiculous, (Kardashian)and we’re laughing at their behavior. Do we really want to pick apart their looks? Boo.

  5. lucy2 says:

    I’ve yet to see anyone who looks good with that ombre hair. It always looks terrible, IMO. Rumer looks kind of cheap here.
    Nice pose, Lea. (eye roll)

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      Ombre is not good, but on Rumer it is hideous. With that jaw it winds up flashing a copper HERE I AM! sign right at her chin and jawline. This is probably an area she might not want to accentuate. *cough*

      Also what is going on with Jessica Lange? Didn’t she look more normal at the Emmy’s? She looks SO plastic and scary.

      • Veruca says:

        **Welcome back, Tiff!**

        And with that, I will always see the words “HERE I AM” emblazoned across her chin.

        I will say, though, I’m actually starting to like her. She could play the sympathy card with the media, but she doesn’t. She’s obviously aware of how harsh everyone is on her looks (she’s not ugly — she’s just weird looking) and I think she’s constantly trying to find looks that work. (She should go a nice brunette.)

        Now Chloe — lord, I just don’t get how that one is famous at all. She reminds me of a truck stop hooker with a credit card.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        *waves at Veruca!*

        She does seem to own it. I think she’s had some better looks. This hair is the very antithesis of what she should have.
        If she had a really nice, dark and layered around the face cut it would be SO much better!

        Off to the beach and a drink…more vacationing to do, you know:)

      • Me Too says:

        It makes me sad to make the comments we all do on actresses like Jessica Lange. First, if she hadn’t had stuff done, I think some of us would be talking about how she’s not aging well… blah blah blah. Look at how many (myself sadly included) of us talk about SJP and how “old she looks.” Those that do have surgery are then laughed at for doing it. They simply can’t win. It really pisses me off that a Clint Eastwood, G Clooney, or Harrison Ford get lead roles in movies with love interests half their age but actresses who are 40 years old suddenly find themselves playing nothing but mothers or side characters. It just pisses the shit out of me!

  6. Amelia says:

    Personally, I think Lea has neither the height nor the saavyness to pull off this dress.
    Gah. Armani is my favourite label and she makes it look like an up-market prom dress!

    • Lilalis says:

      And poses in it like she is about to start her work on a stripper pole.

      I have no idea why Chloe Sevigny is considered a style icon since her fashion choices are always horrible but I like her anyway.

    • Me Too says:

      Lea Michelle on the red carpet is like finger nails on an old fashioned black board. She needs to lighten up on the posing. She’s becoming a laughing stock.

  7. Bluedog says:

    Lea Michelle is so pose hard. Ridiculous.

  8. Babalon says:

    Rumer looks cheap. Jessica is fab.

    That is all.

  9. Jackie O says:

    rumer has the same taste in clothes as her mother. awful.

    jessica has that hard ‘janice dickinson’ look about her now. she use to be beautiful.

  10. Maritza says:

    I think this is the best Rumer Willis has looked, she actually looks pretty. Chloe’s dress is awful but that’s her style so it’s expected. Jessica Lange looks great for a woman her age. Lea just looks pretentious as always.

    • Rumorhasit says:

      I agree, I’ve seen Rumer look much worse than this. This wasn’t too bad… But she’s still got a long ways to go. Demi’s mother makes an unfortunate reappearance in her eldest granddaughter, not much anyone can do about it, but try and experiment to find the most flattering look for her. Which seems to be what Rumer is doing.

  11. Lizzie K says:

    Ombre looks ugly on everyone, IMHO.

    Plus, I think Rumer looks much more attractive with short hair, and she needs to lose the nose ring. Her face is LONG, her nose is LONG. Long hair just elongates her face even more, and she doesn’t need to draw more attention to the long nose with a ring.

    She’s not beautiful and isn’t going to be beautiful, but she could look much more attractive in a quirky, distinctive way.

  12. DSS says:

    I have a theory about Rumer Willis..I think in real life she probably is attractive but probably just doesn’t photograph well. The hombre hair is truly fug. She looks best with the really dark glossy brunette ala Demi.

    • tmbg says:

      It’s possible. I have a longer chin myself (although not like Rumer’s) and I swear it looks 10x’s worse in photographs. When I look in the mirror, I know it’s not a small, square chin, but my gosh, what is with camera lenses? In some photos, my face looks proportioned and not bad, but in others I feel like Jay Leno. 🙁

  13. Hautie says:

    I have said it before, give me a week with Rumer and she would look fabulous.

    She is tiny and well built. She has the connections, to have first dibs on the best clothes. Yet she wears items that come off as tragic.

    And I completely agree about this “ombre” thing. It looks horrible when done with shades of reds. Drew Barrymore has been rocking a nasty shade of it for a few years now.

    Now for Miss Lange.

    I do not believe she has touched her face with actual surgery.

    She may have played around with botox at one point. Maybe a filler to two.

    The lone issue with her face, is from the years of being a drinker and smoker. And just plain ole aging.

    Jessica’s face looks natural to me. Which I rather see her aging, than with some desperate looking face lift gone wrong look…

    • j.eyre says:

      I think Rumer has really pretty eyes – color and shape. I endorse the “One Week with Hautie” plan.

    • Me Too says:

      I agree with you about Jessica. She’s been a smoker for 40+ years. And, living with Sam for as long as she did, she had to have had more than her share of whatever it was they were drinking. I don’t think she’s had a lot done and agree some of it is injectables but I do wonder about her eyes. Whatever! I just wish she and all the other women in Hollywood weren’t operating under the double standard they are–we all talk about their looks ad nauseum but don’t do it in the same negative way with regard to men. Must be so so hard to get old in the public eye.

      • taxi says:

        She definitely had at least a brow lift. It changed the shape of her eyes. Compare to her early pictures.

        When people with hooded lids, like young Lauren Bacall & Linda Evans in her “Big Valley” days, get defined eye sockets, it’s usually due to a brow lift as well as eyelid surgery.

  14. Bubbling says:

    Hmm, did I get used to Rumer’s face or is she looking better lately? She could be one of those people who get better looking with age..

    • Skipper says:

      Maybe she disappears to get some major facial reshaping surgery

      • Me Too says:

        God I hate myself for saying this but I thought the same thing. She disappears regularly because they are slowly whittling down her chin. That kind of surgery would be so so painful. Can’t imagine.

  15. kingkayski says:

    I swear to god ,one of this days Lea is gonna break her neck from posing too hard,ugh!Rumer actually looks nice for the first time in her life,no complains here.

  16. JudyK says:

    It’s cute. She’s young and can get away w/ it. She looks good.

  17. virginia5 says:

    Im sorry but imo rumer is so unattractive.

  18. Christina says:

    That picture of Zachary Quinto makes this post worth having to look at Rumer Willis. She looks better than usual, but the hair is a hot mess. Back to Zachary…yes, that man is hot in a suit. He is hot all the time. Love him.

  19. Shitler says:

    Jessica Lange’s hands/arms used to terrify me on American Horror Story

  20. mln76 says:

    She goes away and gets work done she’s a plastic surgery addict just like her mom with even less talent…and none of the sex appeal.

  21. Darlene says:

    Did anyone see this Blind Item? It’s allegedly about Rumer.

    This C+ list television actor is dating this wannabe actress from A list celebrity offspring. Where do I begin? He tells his friends that he can barely stomach even kissing her but forces himself to do it and to sleep with her because he has never been more famous and credits that fame to his latest role. He keeps pressing to meet her parents. His ex-girlfriend is in on the whole thing and she still sneaks over once a week for some alone time.

  22. India says:


    • Cleveland Girl says:

      You think so? I think she had work done on her eyes, her chin still looks massive to me.

    • mln76 says:

      I think she’s doing it gradually at least once a year. If you look at old pics its really obvious however from recent appearances not so much. Give her a few years and she’ll be rid of the Willis chin.

    • claire says:

      You think? Well, if so…good for her. She has some really unfortunate features. I’m not a fan of plastic surgery, but in her case, I would totally understand and say, “go girl!”

    • JudyK says:

      Totally agree…first thing I noticed. It’s good work, and her face is now more proportionate.

      • Aotearovian says:

        Third this. If you’d never seen her before, you wouldn’t think anything of her chin, whereas it used to overwhelm her face. It’s a really well done job imo.

        Admittedly I haven’t seen any of her work, but I get the feeling acting isn’t going to work out for her. Which might not be a bad thing, when you look at her mother.

  23. annie says:

    I think she needs to cut the hair shorter than chin length, and wear it curly. That would draw attention away from her long face and masculine jaw line.

    Chloe Sevigny has fantastic legs.

  24. Blue says:

    I don’t think Rumer looks THAT bad. The hair is terrible and the nose ring, but this is not the worst she’s looked. She has a nice body.

    Lea needs to stop posing like that.

    Anyone else think ZQ’s suit looks a little too small. He’s is so nice to look at though.

  25. val says:

    I think Rumer looks fugly, sorry but she does and it is unfortunate. No amount of plastic surgery will help, so she might as well just take it. At least she is healthy and her body is okay too.

  26. Skipper says:

    I am confused about how the dress actually got on her body.

  27. ladybert62 says:

    All of those dresses are hideous – Rumer looks horrible.

    As I have previously and consistently mentioned, she needs a decent haircut – one which draws the viewer’s eyes UP and AWAY from that chin.

    She is hopeless as a dresser.

  28. Quinn says:

    I can’t help but think that ombre coloring looks redneck-ish on most women…like she went crazy with the Sun-In bottle last summer, and it’s still not grown out. It makes your hair look unhealthy and in need of a haircut to me!!

    • HotPockets says:

      That’s what I think too! I always think of Sun-in, do they still make that stuff? It essentially made your hair look like this ombre trend, but to me, that’s not a good thing.

  29. HotPockets says:

    I’ve never been more annoyed by anyone in Hollywood like I am by Lea Michele. Everything from her acting in Glee to her try hard posing on the red carpet. Stop trying to make her happen..anyone but her!

  30. roxy750 says:

    Women-some advice. If you are going to wear a mini skirt/dress/shorts, whatever….go tanning or put some fake bronzer on or wear something length appropriate. No body EVER in all the years I have been alive wants to see a woman’s white blotchy awkward legs. Like K-Stew too, ugh, drives me nuts, reminds me of jr high or HS days.

    • HotPockets says:

      To be honest Roxy, I think her legs look good here. I’ve never heard any man say that he likes fake tanner. I have fair legs and every time my husband sees me apply any kind of bronzer or fake bake he cringes. That’s probably one of the biggest complaints I hear about women from men is that they don’t understand the obsession with trying to look tan. Look at Katy Perry, Emma Stone and Emma Watson..they all get voted hottest females and they have porcelain skin.

    • Rachel says:

      Seriously, no, just stop. I have fair skin and I’m NOT going to slather on fake tan just so I don’t offend people’s delicate senses about having to, *gasp!*, see my pale legs. It’s the skin color I was born with, and if others don’t like it, tough.

    • Bluedog says:

      Roxy, you are wrong, wrong, wrong! There is NOTHING wrong with lovely pale skin. People need to be the color they are. Seriously, would you tell a very black person they’re too black? If very white skin bugs you, then avert your eyes.

      Your logic is why Lindsay Lohan always looks like a blotchy, dirty, two-toned mess.

      • taxi says:

        Fake tans don’t work well on freckled skin like LL’s. The freckles tan too much and make an even stronger contrast against the lighter skin in between.

  31. april says:

    I think Rumer looks good. Probably the best photos I’ve ever seen of her.

  32. Kat says:

    Maybe if Rumer smiled? She has a tiny mouth and holding it like that just emphasizes her nose and chin,

  33. Lizi says:

    I know nothing about fashion and trends and cool haircuts. I love her hair. I never thought she looked nice until I saw these photos. And I think there’s nothing wrong with pale women/girls.

  34. Emmaa says:

    I didn’t know she’d gotten lip injections. It does suit her though.

  35. Lisa says:

    Holy shit, I thought Jessica was Amy Poehler! I was like, damn, those boozing rumours were true!

  36. judyjudy says:

    I love Chloe.

  37. holly hobby says:

    Is that a nose ring on her one dimensional nose? Ugh, someone should tell her that the ring does not look good on a nose that barely has any cartiledge on it.

    Stop making this happen, Rumer. You will not happen in Hollywood. Go to school, get an education.

  38. LahdidahBaby says:

    I think Rumer’s dress and body look great here–but wtf has she done to her hair? Her natural Demi-dark hair was beautiful, and SO much more flattering for her face and jawline, plus it set off her eyes in a lovely way.

  39. LahdidahBaby says:

    Lea in that goofy melodramatic “glam” (she thinks) pose looks like a marionette whose strings have fallen from her puppetmaster’s fingers.

    Chloe has the worst fashion sense in the biz (though I like her). I never can understand how/why she became a style darling.

  40. RobN says:

    Is there a reason that ZQ’s suit is two sizes too small? He couldn’t look less comfortable.

  41. skuddles says:

    I am not a fan of this particular ombre look – makes her hair look greasy and in need of a shampoo. And it reminds me a lot of SJP’s hair in SITC, which I never could stand – like she’s months behind on getting her roots done.

  42. Stubbylove says:

    1. Rumer is beyond fug and she looks like a tramp in that outfit
    2. Jessica Lange is a f*cking legend and is still gorgeous
    3. Lea needs to be severely bitch-slapped
    4. I don’t mind Chloe
    4. American Horror Story Asylum – BRING IT.

  43. I Choose Me says:

    Not feeling that dress either but Rumer has really beautiful eyes and great skin.

  44. Genevieve says:

    I could have sworn that Lange said she’s never had surgery nor ever will. She looks the same to me, just older.

    Rumer definitely looks like she had her chin widdled down a bit.

    Why is Lea always over posing?

  45. Jayna says:

    She looks pretty there. I like the hair color. She’s young. She can wear it. And she looks fresh, unlike a jacked-up Lindsay Lohan who looks twice her twenty-something age.

    The dress is adorable on her. Good God, some people on here act like a bunch of old fogies complaining about her outfit and hair. She’s young, people, and looks young and hip, without being all try-hardy like Miley Cyrus.

  46. the original bellaluna says:

    Is it wrong that I really want to kidnap Zachary for a weekend (week, month, whatever) and just hang out with him? I like him, and I’ve no idea why. I never used to.

    I see what she’s trying to do with that dress, but I REALLY don’t like that dress. Same with Chloe – too much try-hard-to-be-avant-garde for my taste.

  47. Joanna says:

    I think Rumer looks really pretty and has a great figure.

  48. Yup, me says:

    Every time I see Chloe Sevigny I think of this series of youtube vids:

  49. taxi says:

    If i had designed Chloe’s dress, I wouldn’t admit it.

  50. I'm going to Guam! says:

    Rumer looks BETTER with lighter hair color.
    Most women don’t get that dark hair only draws more attention to your face!
    Most pale people cannot actually pull off dark brown hair, sorry, but to pull off a dark brown or black hair color you need to have a frickin’ gorgeous face because all eyes will be looking to your face!
    Rumer needs a lighter hair color, preferably some type of blond that will distract from her face.

  51. Louise says:

    I totally agree have never understand the fuss about Demi Moore, she is so plain. Maybe my friends are unusually pretty or something, but seriously if I showed you pics and then you look at Demi, she would be the absolute plainest. I don’t even get the `it` factor, she doesn’t sparkle or anything! And as for Bruce, a wimp pretending to be a hard man (won’t forget how he refused to fly after the twin towers) with a face like an egg. No he is not handsome. Not in the model sense. he just got lucky. If u saw him sweeping streets he’d just be a regular guy a few people like as he’s got a bit of character. his daughers look like him. And yes they are extremely unattractive. poor things.

  52. AjSChicago says:

    I agree with the assesment on Rumor. I’ll be polite & say she’s not conventionally attractive & when she attempts something very trendy and visually adventurous it doesn’t always work. It just looks….awkward.
    Completely disagree about Jessica Lange. I think she HASN’T had the usual Hollywood facial reboot so she actually looks like a woman her age. I think we’ve grown numb to the amount of celebs that have plasticized their faces so that a real person over 50 looks out of place in front of a camera.

  53. Kosmos says:

    Lea is someone I do not warm up to for some reason. It feels like the world is all about her. Talented, but full of herself, right? Chloe’s dress with the one puffy white sleeve…really? I have to agree on Rumor’s hair, not the greatest. She tries a lot of different looks, but this one is nah…dress could be better, too.
