Zoe Saldana in bejewelled Prabal Gurung at the Globes: cheap lingerie fug?

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana sauntered onto the Globes red carpet last night in a truly fug Prabal Gurung dress. Guiliana Rancic loved it and called Zoe a true “fashionista.” In response, Zoe simpered about how her “dearest friend” had designed the dress just for her. That’s sweet, but the dress is absolutely dreadful. I think this is one of the worst looks of the night.

I’m trying to wrap my mind around this horrific mess. Prabal Gurung has combined a bejewled black front with precious bodice ribbons and an asymmetrical white-and-pink skirt that descends into a Fredericks of Hollywood nightmare. Nothing about Zoe’s look works here. Not the severe hair and makeup, and certainly not the shoddy dress. The shoes are unremarkable, which is probably a blessing in disguise. Zoe thinks this is avant garde fashion, but it’s just a mess.

Paula Patton

Paula Patton wore a white Stephane Rolland couture gown with the ruffle to end all ruffles. I suspect this dress would have made for a stunning silhouette, but no one can tell because of that damn distracting ruffle. At least Paula didn’t make the drastic mistake of accessorizing with Robin Thicke. Paula’s earrings and statement ring are supurb, but she went too heavy on the blush.

Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman stepped out in underwhelming black Atelier Versace. Are these separates? I don’t think so. The shiny black skirt is at odds with the severe halter top. Uma looks very uncomfortable in this dress. All that Botox doesn’t help matters. Uma’s not feeling it, and neither am I.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum kept the dream of being the worst dressed supermodel alive. Heidi wore Marchesa of course. The garish print is aiming for Asian-inspired flare but looks like a silkscreened mess. At first glance, Heidi doesn’t look like she’s begging for attention, but the skirt is pretty sheer from a side view. I also think she stole that necklace from Richie Sambora during the “Wanted: Dead or Alive” era.

      Yeah what is WRONG with dresses this season?? Loss like they came from a grade schooler’s dream dress sketchbook. Awful, gaudy, random. I really love Heidi’s but she has that nasty choker on. Even when they were in, chokers were always hideous, and still are.

  2. GlimmerBunny says:

    All of them look like shit.

    • V4Real says:

      They all look like walking mistakes. I think their stylist and designers secretly hates them.

      I am actually looking forward to Fashion Police tonight.

      • Nicolette says:

        ITA, especially with your comment about their stylists and designers secretly hating them. It’s almost obvious isn’t it? Looking forward to Fashion Police as well, but then again they sometimes shock me with glowing critiques about gowns we pretty much all dislike here.

    • Liv says:

      I usually love Saldana’s style, but this dress is awful. Shoes too.

      By the way I wonder how awkward it was seeing Bradley Cooper plus Mom. These events are a get-together of exes and moms.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Do these people have mirrors?

  3. Kiddo says:

    Haha. Heidi looks like she stepped out of an old timey bordello. Well done Heidi. Oh wait, this isn’t her Halloween get-up.

  4. Anna says:

    This is your GG Worst Dressed post, isnt it?

  5. Patricia says:

    I usually like a lingerie inspired look, as long as it is paired with good shape wear and undergarments so the figure is flattered. I clicked on the link ready to defend, but when I saw the dress I was stunned in the wrong kind of way. Awful!!! I have no idea what I am even looking at!

  6. blue marie says:

    Well I had heard on the radio this morning that Paula’s dress looked like a vagina but didn’t believe it until I saw it. She is so pretty, so why the hell does she do this to herself?

    As for the rest, no.. Why is Heidi even there?

    • V4Real says:

      I ask this about almost every award show she attends, why is she there?

      Maybe it’s their attempt to trash it up a little.

  7. Renee says:

    Zoe’s dress looks like it was made from a bunch of scraps someone didn’t want to waste.

  8. Dani says:

    Someone please tell Paula Patton that the owner of the labia that is sewn on her dress called, she wants it back!!!

  9. Hannah says:

    “Heidi Klum kept the dream of being the worst dressed supermodel alive.” AAAHH, TRUE, TRUE, TRUE!!! Going with Marchesa helps matters, of course.

  10. Rachel says:

    I didn’t think Zoe’s was *horrendous*… just a little cheap looking. When I saw Paula Patton, I knew she would make every single worst dressed list. That ruffle was trying to consume her.

  11. Melanie says:

    She’s gorgeous, but the dress is totally fug.

  12. Melanie says:

    Poor Paula. Matchy matchy head to toe, teeth to shoes.

  13. Dreamyk says:

    I can’t look at Paula without feeling pity anymore. I don’t care what she says to the media, all the naked ladies and inappropriate crotch twerking her husband has been engaging in is dreadful. It’s possible it’s an open marriage, to each his/her own, but she is not wearing it well, at all.

  14. Bianca says:

    Call me crazy, but I kind of like Zoe Saldana’s dress. I suspect the back of it is hideous, but I still think she’s (almost) pulling it off. Especially in comparison to all the other ladies pictured here, who are half-assedly wearing boring, fugly gowns.

    • Jess says:

      I’m with you, but then I always love Zoe so I probably am biased. The others are gawdawful, especially Heidi’s. The dress, the hair, the choker – horrible!

      • MCraw says:

        Same here. I really like how different it is, especially since she’s not up for awards. Mix it up a bit. Well done.

    • Delorb says:

      I was going to disagree, until I saw the bottom. The dress is gorgeous on top, but awful on the bottom. And I love me some Zoe too.

  15. Marianne says:

    Zoe’s dress has just too much going on.

    Uma Thurman’s botox was bad. As I said on another thread, she had trouble moving her face as she was talking.

    Paula Patton’s dress is super ugly as well.

    I hated Heidi’s hair, make-up and necklace. I think the look could have been saved if she changed those things.

  16. ncmagnolia says:

    Yup, Heidi stunk up the red carpet in that thing, for sure. Worst dress I saw all night. I’m terrified to even say this here, but Zoe Saldana’s dress was very different (in a good way) and I really loved her in it! Everyone else was kind of “meh”, except for the labia dress on PP. AWFUL!!

  17. BendyWindy says:

    Zoe’s dress is fug, but her hair and makeup are perfection.

  18. smee says:

    Zoe’s dress is insane and if a friend specially made it for her, it’s a frienemy! She needs to watch out for the Resting B Face too.

    Perfect – “At least Paula didn’t make the drastic mistake of accessorizing with Robin Thicke.”

    Uma has that dead inside and outside thing going on. That dress is so wrong – looks like a bejeweled turtle neck.

    And Heidi does indeed look like a rock wife from the 90s.

    • j.eyre says:

      “At least Paula didn’t make the drastic mistake of accessorizing with Robin Thicke.” – yes, perfect. I wish Bedhead had written the jokes last night – I would have enjoyed the show more.

  19. Nicolette says:

    Zoe’s dress looks like they took a bunch of fabric swatches, sewed them together and voila! It’s a dress.

  20. Ag says:

    “Here go hell no.”

  21. embertine says:

    I will join the unpopular opinion brigade and say that I really like Zoe’s dress, at least from the front. The back would be reasonably OK if it weren’t for the slit. I think she was right to match it to plain shoes and simple styling, and the red lip really pops. It’s maybe a little tight? but fits her well other than that. I couldn’t pull it off but I do think it’s pretty, and normally I am all about hatting the finicky ones.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I will step to the front of the unpopular opinion brigade, because I love Zoe’s entire look. I don’t see lingerie. I think it’s an interesting, beautiful, well-fitting dress. I love it, I love it and I won’t back down!!

      When I saw Paula Patton onstage, I KNEW she’d be all over the worst-dressed lists. Her dress kind of reminds me of the infamous Bjork swan dress.

  22. lunchcoma says:

    Zoe’s dress looks like a failed Etsy project, Paula’s is a sad cry for attention, and I just can’t with Marchesa anymore.

  23. Raised Brow says:

    That close-up of Paula is giving me vintage Billie Holliday vibes.

  24. Hannah says:

    What is Heidi doing at the Globes every year anyway?

  25. GIRLFACE says:

    Ahhh! Where to start? Zoe and Heidi look like a TJ Maxx clearance lingerie rack. Heidi’s hair with that necklace is super Warrant. Uma does look frozen over and that white ruffle is pretty rough. This is the worst dressed club I think.

  26. OhDear says:

    Zoe’s dress looks like a bad DIY project. Her hair/makeup look good, though.

    Uma Thurman’s dress is unflattering and Heidi Klum’s makeup looks terrible.

  27. QQ says:

    So although Paula patton has a vaginal dress and as per usual screwed the pooch on the makeup (seriously how can someone with so much raw material and means crap out so.many.award.shows!) there is a plus side: the guy that diddy presented that looked like a fresh off the street dressed up bum at least acted drunker than her (also as per usual)

    I dont even Understand what saldana is wearing?

  28. lucy2 says:

    Zoe’s was the worst for me. It looks like someone gave a crazy person a bunch of fabric samples and a stapler.
    Heidi’s choker necklace was so awful I didn’t even notice the dress.
    Paula! I would never choose that anyway, but especially not for someone only presenting. That is ridiculous, and her makeup was harsh.

  29. Barbiegirl says:

    I actually like Zoe’s dress… But then I love black and pink, very agent provocateur…

  30. Fan says:

    The dress looks different, not bad but made her look like she came from another themed party.

  31. P.J. says:

    I can’t stand Saldana in her interviews, on the red carpet, etc, but I think at least the makeup was nice. And yes, girlfriend really is entirely convinced that she and all of the incredibly hideous awards show dresses that she wears are “high fashion”. Ugh.

    “At least Paula didn’t make the drastic mistake of accessorizing with Robin Thicke.” GOLD 😀 (I do love the makeup/makeup shades that she’s wearing though. I think it’s really beautiful.)

    Something nice about Heidi? At least she seems to be leaving her face alone. Natural aging is SO much better than all of those garish looking injections and fillers!

  32. Aly says:

    Zoe has the absolute worst fashion sense. Girl needs a new stylist ASAP.

  33. original me says:

    Zoe’s dress looks like a bad Project Runway dress! Like from the contestant who decided to become a fashion designer last year and doesn’t know how to make a pattern or sew. And one of those people who says ” I don’t sketch”.

  34. Leslilly says:

    The minute I saw Uma’s face, my brain screamed BOTOX! However, someone else’s face shocked me much more – Kate Beckinsale! Did anyone notice? She looked like she’d had layers of facial skin removed. It left her a shiny, odd-looking mess. The cameras did not zoom in on her, damnit.

  35. Thunderthighs says:

    No! No!
    NO! Whyyyyyy?
    Oh, hell NO!


  36. Ajla R says:

    “At least Paula didn’t make the drastic mistake of accessorizing with Robin Thicke.” Honestly, this cracked me up. But I would accessorize with Robin Thicke any time.

  37. Lisa says:

    Okay, not that I think women are obligated to smile and be cheerful beings all the time, but Saldana always looks so sour. Not nice.

  38. Maria says:

    I loved that Richie Sambora comment. I actually snorted while laughing!

  39. Goofpuff says:

    I really like Zoe’s look. It’s cool and everything blends well, but then I tend to prefer straying from the boring norm. This dress would definitely not work on a different body type though.
