Kaley Cuoco bares her midriff at the QVC pre-Oscar party: surprisingly cute?


Here are some photos from the 5th Annual QVC Red Carpet Style event in Beverly Hills last night. It’s weird to me that QVC puts on a big pre-Oscar event every year, but it’s even weirder that they consistently get the best turnout of nearly any other pre-Oscar party. Let’s get to the fashion! First up: Kaley Cuoco. I’m surprised she didn’t bring Ryan Sweeting! Is this the first time that they’ve ever been apart?! As for her midriffy top and the matching skirt… on anyone else, I would have flat-out hated it. But it suits her, right? I think this is a solid look for her.


Nicole Richie… yikes. I mean… what is going on with Nicole? And what is going on with Giuliana Rancic too, incidentally? Every time I see those two women, it’s like they’re in a competition to see who can look the most skeletal. I worry about both of them. I know that sounds concern-trolly so go ahead and yell, but I think it’s weird that we can’t discuss it openly, considering they’re walking red carpets looking like this.


Yay, Stacy Keibler still gets invited to Hollywood events! I can’t say her budget styling has changed too much since she was with George Clooney. But I’m strangely happy to see her on a red carpet.


Kat Dennings. It’s a cute outfit, I guess? I feel for her, trying to make her huge rack look cute in the trendy clothes that are popular these days. I feel like she’s wearing a minimizer here.


Kate Mara… while this could have been an interesting dress on someone else, I’m not really feeling it on Kate, especially with her styling.


Jenna Dewan’s dress is strangely enchanting. I stared at it for a good five minutes feeling like the gold foil was going to eat the rest of the dress.


Elizabeth Rohm in Hervé Léger. I don’t get why she went with this dress at all. She’s pretty, but this look is so dated.


When did Kristy Swanson become Laura Dern?! Only I would say Kristy Swanson looks prettier, actually.


I’m also including pics of Kendra Wilkinson (I keep forgetting she’s pregnant again), Gabourery Sidibe, and Jenna Fischer and her bump (she just announced her second pregnancy this month).

    I really need to Google kaley because I don’t know who she is. But she looks like a typical mall obsessed valley girl, so that outfit is tres appropriate.

    • bettyrose says:

      Okay, googled her. She does have a respectable docier of shows I’ve never watched, but of note she is actually a native born valley girl. So, again, she pulls of that look perfectly.

      • LadySlippers says:

        On the Big Bang Theory she plays her character just like a Valley Girl too — even though Penny is supposed to be from Nebraska. Even more irritating is the writers don’t even bother to get facts right about Nebraska and go with stereotypes and myths. Grrr.

        Funny show though. Very funny.

      • Tulip Garden says:


        You admit to liking the Big Bang Theory? How mainstream and uncool! Seriously, I think it is very funny too but you would think it’s the worst thing in the world according to the internet-appointed entertainment arbitrators and the ever present hipster it-ain’t-cool-or-funny-if-it’s-mainstream crowd 🙂

      • AlmondJoy says:

        @Lady and Tulip I like Big Bang Theory too. Actually, I love it! I find her character quite annoying though, for some reason.

      • greenmonster says:

        @AlmondJoy: I find her character annoying too. I have the feeling that every other character on the show is evolving but she is not. Penny is now (in my opinion) the weakest link on the show.

      • AlmondJoy says:

        @GreenMonster So true! I think you hit the nail on the head. She’s the same on every single episode. She’s been the same person since season one. I also hate Amy Farrah Fowler’s fawning over her character. Penny clearly doesn’t feel the same.

      • LadySlippers says:

        @Tulip: We are just TOO cool for the internet police then. 😉 Which might be why we retreated to our garden… Lol

        @AlmondJoy @GreenMonster: The lack of character development IS another annoyance to add to the list. And the sad thing is that Nebraska has tons of real jokes they could use (even Midwest themed ones).

        It does beg the question why everyone else’s character is evolving but Penny.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Nichole Richie looks like her dress is swallowing her whole.

    • LadySlippers says:


      She’s also got a stern librarian vibe in that pic which is odd. Never thought ‘stern librarian’ was what you strived for on the red carpet. But what do I know?

    • lisa2 says:

      I don’t like the dress on her. All the fabric about the neck is not good. She is a small girl and it is taking over her here.

  3. Lily says:

    Kaley’s outfit is cute but she needs to work on her facial expressions a bit

    • LadySlippers says:

      I agree. And her hair. It doesn’t work for me in this otherwise good ensemble.

    • Tiff says:

      Bitch face alert lol
      I like the idea of the outfit but the top doesn’t look like it fits her correctly

      • Moneypenny says:

        Agreed, she needs some alterations on that too. Having said that , this is the best I’ve seen her look. Kaley clearly has a great figure. She makes herself look so ugly with those expressions.

  4. Launicaangelina says:

    I hate that “concern trolling” became a thing. We should be able to express concern about someone without it being a thing. Also, I agree with the comments about Nicole and Guilianna.

    • Nikki L. says:

      Same. I hate that expression. There’s a “troll” type label for every kind of comment now. It’s irritating. People are not immune to criticism.

  5. Kiddo says:

    So much blah. Kaley’s dress is bland in color for her complexion. Maybe I’m wrong, but with the crop tops, I think you need to pick a body part, boobs or belly button, and not both. Nicole’s dress has that American Hustle 70’s-80’s retro look, but she’s swimming in it and it doesn’t look tailored for her. It’s not Kat’s rack that is the problem at all, the shoes do not work with that ensemble, at least for me, they split up her legs and are too ‘light’ for the heavier look on top. Elizabeth Rohm looks like an older Kaley, in the face. Terrible dress. The rest, meh.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Yeah, she has a more voluptuous body type and bigger legs, and the shoes cut her off at the ankles. She def needs a different shoe with that dress. I bet she has trouble dressing b/c she’s not lanky like Hollywood people.

    • pru says:

      You’re not wrong. I think that if you are going to expose the midriff, the cleavage should be covered. One or another, not both – it’s just too much!

    • herladyship says:

      Yes. I had to do a double take on Rohm.. She could easily be Kaley’s older sister.

  6. smee says:

    Holy smokes – I can barely say anything poz about the fashion at. all.

    Kaley has a great bod and torso so she looks cute – until you that she’s wearing her grandma’s sandals.

    In fact, almost all the shoes are really, really bad – especially Kat Demmings – who I love – she looks cute until you look down to see her red fishnet booties or whatever. I despise those things………….

  7. bettyrose says:

    Cat Dennings is a gorgeous girl with a gorgeous figure. Real question: was she costumed in oversized frumpy clothes in Thor to downplay that she’s sexier than Natalie P?

    • danielle says:

      HAHA! Like this comment – I think she would have been better than Portman as the female lead.

    • Lempicka says:

      EXACTLY what I was thinking!
      they tried and still it looked weird: she hooked up with the intern and Portman gets the god?!
      *Darcy and Loki*

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I always thought Dennings and Thor made the better couple in the movie. Portman’s character was such a cardboard cutout plus she and Thor had no chemistry, imo.

      Also, I like Dennings but despise “Two Broke Girls”. I think she deserves better than that show offers. For the most part, I find it vulgar and stupid.

      Lastly, I agree that the shoes are what messes this outfit up. They do cut her legs off and it’s not a good look.

    • Shantal says:

      I don’t find Dennings particularly sexy either. She’s annoying in everything I’ve seen her in.

    • wonderwoman21 says:

      Lol Dennings is way hotter than Portman isn’t she. She should have had Portman’s role.

    • Zigggy says:


  8. CTgirl says:

    Kate Mara always looks so terrified and stiff when she’s on the red carpet. Look at the cords of her neck sticking out. I keep thinking she’s going to have a breakdown when posing.

  9. Suze says:

    The shoes are killing my eyes.

    Cuoco looks ok, but she overdoes the California blonde chic look. Too much hair, too much skin, too much pouting.

  10. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    Cage heels, bandage dresses, tousled bleach-blonde belly-button-bearing, horrifyingly ugly leopard-god-only-knows-what “hip” prints, baby doll dresses with leather jackets…. I feel like screaming Return of the 90s/2000s! at the top of my lungs to the tune of the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes song. Pretty much everybody looks horrible.

  11. sauvage says:

    Good Lord, Kaley, that is some serious bitchface! I only look like that when I look into a mirror. (Yes, I KNOW. I KNOW it doesn’t exactly make me look pretty. Everybody looks like a moron when looking into a mirror, right? My boyfriend yells ‘BLUE STEEL!” every single time he catches me in the act….)

  12. pru says:

    Were they all dressed and styled by QVC?
    Kat Dennings is the only one I would say looks good, minus the shoes. I hate those shoes!!!

  13. Mom2two says:

    Jenna Fischer looks so cute pregnant. I cannot believe she is 39!

  14. rep says:

    I dont get the hype for Kat, her makeup is too harsh. Really I dont see one outfit Im impressed with, and that’s putting it nicely. All of them look bad and this is a total D list.

  15. Snowflake says:

    Yeah I always wonder why no one tries to help Giuliani or Nicole. They clearly do not look well.

  16. taxi says:

    Is this the post for all the losers in the style dept? Sheesh. Kat needs to throw away those shoes & that lipstick. Dewan needs face powder. This is just a big bunch of awfulness.

  17. FLORC says:

    Richie just looks painfully thin again.

    Is that front slit in Kaley’s skirt a trend now? Same with Lupitas.

    Stacey looks awesome! Really great and she’s playing her post Clooney cards right.

    Kate Mara always looks like this. I just can’t like her and can’t forgive how she ruined AHS Season 1 for me.

  18. DanaG says:

    Nicole is looking way too thin again she was looking so good for awhile there. And I worry about her and Giulanna too it’s scary how thin these two are. Wow Stacy Keibler go invited she looks better then she did the other day in the hot pink tragic suit she wore. She really isn’t invited to all that much these days post Clooney life isn’t treating her well. It’s a good thing she has a hooked a millionaire cause work wise she doesn’t seem to have anything. Don’t like Kat Dennings shoes at all that is what really let’s down this outfit too me she is way too pale for such a strong colour.

  19. TherapyCranes says:

    Kat looks adorable. I actually like what she’s wearing. The shoes are eh.. But I would totally wear that dress and jacket.

  20. Hubbahun says:

    What is up with those Mara girls? They both look like they’ve had a mug tree shoved up their butts? I get anxiety just looking at their uptightedness (yeah, that’s a word **cough** ;P).

    Kate is so pretty yet here she’s just looks…I dunno…wrong.

    Kat Denning is just delicious as is Gabby. I like Kaley but I never stop thinking that Claire’s is down a shopgirl when I see her on a red carpet. Jenna Dewan is a terrible actress but she’s very pretty.

  21. Lucy2 says:

    QVC red carpet? What? Seems…budget.
    Kaley is such a try hard.
    Kat looks pretty in red but the shoes are not flattering.
