Jaime King in Monse at ‘Star Wars’ premiere: theme-dressing goes wrong?


At last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens world premiere in LA, there was some cosplay and some theme-dressing on the red carpet. I have to think that’s what Jaime King was trying to do – theme-dressing. To Jaime, this Monse dress looked sort of Star Wars-y and intergalactic. Is it though? Or is it just sort of fug? If you make her skin green, I could see her as a cigarette girl at the Cantina.


Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello walked their first red carpet at a married couple for this premiere. I have to wonder… which one of them is into Star Wars? Sofia is a big deal to Disney/ABC, so maybe she was required to come out for a Disney property. Or maybe Joe is a secret Star Wars geek, like many men of his generation. In any case, they thankfully didn’t theme-dress.


Janelle Monae looks DIFFERENT, right? Something with her eyes, I believe. Maybe it’s just makeup and styling. Maybe she was trying to look sort of weird and unusual, but I could swear that she looks a bit tweaked too. Her Star Wars-themed dress is Erevos Aether. It’s okay.



Am I alone in sort of loving Karrueche Tran’s look here? I think she’s really pretty anyway, but I love her Star Wars-themed hair and I love the snazzy white suit. She looks great.

    I think aa of them look great, even Joe! I love premieres where people dress a bit costume-y.

  2. Santia says:

    Is Karrueche Tran considered a “celebrity” now?

  3. Pandy says:

    I don’t understand the buttons on Jamie King’s train? Is it meant to be sleeves??? Otherwise, I think they all look great. I would have liked better angles of Janelle’s dress – looks interesting but I can’t see it properly.

    Why is Karrueche Tran there? Guess the fame ho quotient needed filling.

    • Kitten says:

      I don’t get why she’s there either but I think she looks awesome–the best out of the bunch to me.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        She looks adorable.

      • I Choose Me says:

        Agree on Karruuche .

        I don’t know what the hell Jamie King is wearing but had I been there, I would’ve been temped to creep up behind her with a scissors and cut that shit off.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      The buttons are so odd right? Its like shes dragging her jacket on the ground behind her.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Same? I’m a really stunned by how much I like Kareucche’s outfit.

    • V4Real says:

      Janelle looks fierce. Her face is to die for in those pics.

    • Rainbow says:

      Karrueche is a actress (in her mind) and model lol
      She looks good, i would like her outfit more with a bra though.

      Jaime King looks terrible. I can’t believe people styled her and let her leave the house like this.

    • tmot says:

      I get “sleeves” from it too, like it’s supposed to be a deconstructed button down shirt. Do Not Like.
      Sofia = boring and sausage-ey.
      Carruche forgot her bra or top.
      EVERYONE is wearing WAY too much shiny bronzer!
      Janelle wins this one. Although the bodice is obviously too big on her as you can see the lining. And who lined that thing in white?! But otherwise it’s amazing.

    I am sorry, I hated every single look here. Jaime looks like she is wearing the sheets with which she made her escape from the asylum. (I know, not a PC comment, but doesn’t that look like a stretched out suit they put on you just before they lock you up in a padded cell??)
    And Sofia at least is wearing a shorter dress, although once again she is so stuffed in it one wonders how she sits or breathes. the rest are just… weird.

  5. Josefina says:

    I think those are just unflattering pictures of Janelle. As for Jaime, well… bless her heart.

    • Livvers says:

      In addition, I can’t remember ever seeing Janelle with a nude lip. I’m used to her red lip colour dividing attention between her mouth and her eyes, but with her makeup here, the attention is solely on her eyes, especially because even her brows are lighter.

    I think Karrueche looks great – the whole look would be a home run for me if she’d just put a damn shirt on!! The ‘wide-open-to-my-navel-almost-flashing-the-girls’ gives it a totally trashy vibe in my opinion, and I’m far from a prude but I really think it would have looked better with a sheer cami or maybe even a funky bandeau underneath. I’m so tired of all these girls being half a millimeter away from a wardrobe malfunction!!

    P.S. – I have a cold and I’m grumpy today so maybe that’s why this bugged me so much… :/

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Jamie looks as if she’s trying really hard to hold the dress and bow or train or pillow or whatever that is in place. It never works when you’re fussing with your clothes that way.

  9. CornyBlue says:

    What does Jamie King do beside writing the extraest of extra Happy Birthday messages for taylor Swift ? Is she a model?

  10. Beckysuz says:

    How does being Chris Brown’s doormat for several years get you an invite to this big of a premiere? Seriously?

  11. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    I have to say at any other event I’d probably hate Karreuche’s outfit but here for this? Beautiful. THIS is why celebs need to save their dramatic looks for truly unique events because the right event can just make an outfit work.

    Unfortunately it did not work for Jaime, maybe if the dress didn’t seem to fit so poorly and had some shape.

    I think Janae looks normal, just the makeup making her squint.

  12. Ughhhhhh says:

    Is Sofia wearing Leia buns?

  13. lucy2 says:

    Karrueche Tran? OK, I think we need a list of who DIDN’T get invited, because clearly pretty much everyone in the Los Angeles area did.

    Jamie’s dress looks like she got tangled in a bed sheet and somehow stumbled onto the red carpet.

  14. Scal says:

    I think Janelle changed the shape and thickness of her eyebrows. It changes up her face. Also I think the way she’s wearing her hair/showing off her forehead is throwing it off somehow.

  15. OSTONE says:

    Jamie wrapped herself in the shower curtain and left.

  16. Sunnyawesome says:

    Jaime looks like a chair cover you rent for weddings!

  17. SloaneY says:

    I don’t mind Tran’s outfit but she has waaaay too much cleavage makeup going on.

  18. Wentworth Miller says:

    The dress is ugly and what’s with the two buttons on the end of her train cape? I have that necklace. Got it from Old Navy, last year. I think everyone else looks cute. I like Karrueche.

  19. Marianne says:

    What the actual fcuk is Jaime wearing????

    It looks like a toilet seat lid with pants attached and some toilet paper attached to her boobs. I just mean….how the hell did she put on that dress and think “mmmmmm looking fierce today”.

  20. Tingle says:

    Janelle’s hairstyle is a homage to one of Princess Leia’s…


    I didn’t realise how much of a Star Wars Geek I am but recognised it straight away!

  21. Dena says:

    She looks like a tampon
    The only one i liked was Elizabeth Banks.

  22. kri says:

    Jaime King looks like she is sleep walking and pulling some of her bedding with her. Dreadful. Bit looks comfy if u are going on a long plane trip.
