Emma Roberts debuted some terrible bangs at the Critics Choice Awards

The 23rd Annual Critics' Choice Awards - Arrivals

I love the fact that my bangs-hatred is so well known that as soon as a celebrity gets new bangs, I’ve got people tweeting @ me. When the camera cut to Emma Roberts at the Critics Choice Awards, people were like “damn, what happened to Vera Farmiga?” No. Emma Roberts attended the CCAs with her on-again boyfriend/fiance (?) Evan Peters – ordinarily I would be talking about how f–king toxic this relationship seems, but we’re talking about her bangs instead. LOOK AT THEM. WHY DID SHE THINK THEY WERE A GOOD IDEA? What in the world possessed her to go into a hair salon and ask for this shade of blonde – it’s awful too – and those bangs??? As for her gown – it’s Armani and it’s beautiful. She should have chosen this for her wedding dress. But now she has to wait until she grows out those hideous bangs.

Remember when I was grotesquely obsessed with Jessica Biel’s bad bangs? At some point, she grew them out and I guess I didn’t notice. She looks worlds better now. She also looks so much prettier when her douchebag husband isn’t attached at her hip, trying to steal her thunder. Biel looked lovely in this Oscar de la Renta dress. Really pretty.

I enjoy the fact that Kiernan Shipka is trying to “work” this Delpozo, like maybe if she just poses in the right way, this ensemble will look cute. Oh, honey. That’s not the way it works! This is awful – a tutu attached to bad pants and a terrible tank top. Nope.

    OMG! CB you’re right, they are terrible. Ugh!

  2. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    If you are not currently lying beneath a headstone bearing the words Louise Brooks, you should not attempt this haircut.

  3. Beluga says:


    That brings back memories of being six and managing to get hold of a pair of scissors!

  4. Astrid says:

    I’m OK with bangs in general but these are just awful!

  5. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    Biel looks gorgeous; what the HELL was Emma Roberts thinking? She is not Emma Watson or Zoe Kravitz.
    I’m hoping it was a wig. That’s all I got.

  6. SM says:

    Terrible bangs. My God. And I see Jessica came alone. Did she manage to lock JT in a closet and run away from the house?

  7. Kimma1216 says:

    Emma Roberts dress is not gorgeous, and the seams near her chest are bumpy…

  8. ichsi says:

    Nah, they look like clip-on bangs. No damage done. And I like that he for once doesn’t look as if he’d slept in a dumpster

  9. Hildog says:

    They look like clip ins- notice you can’t see where they start -a hairstylist

  10. Whoopsy Daisy says:

    I like them! She has the right face for it, it looks quite edgy and cool.

  11. Hildog says:

    They look like clip ins- notice you cants see where they starts -a hairstylist

  12. Lilith says:

    Well, Emma obviously lost the bet. Awful. And creepy.

  13. Char says:

    I think Kiernan looks really beautiful, young and happy! It’s nice to see different clothes on the red carpet, people should get more props for trying fashion!

  14. Josephine says:

    despite the bangs, love the dress and the date. the dress is very simple but the fabric looks gorgeous and I think she pulls it off from the neck down.

  15. Lucy says:

    Jessica looks absolutely fantastic. Loved that De La Renta collection. As for Emma, I feel like that is something Noomi Rapace would try (assuming she hasn’t done it yet). Not feeling it but props to her for taking a risk.

  16. Anastasia says:

    Those bangs either need to be shorter or longer. This length is no bueno. And they go WAY up on her head, which makes me agree they are clip ins, but it also makes them look worse.

    Kiernan’s outfit would be ADORABLE on a little girl, minus the heels!

  17. kb says:

    i was going to tweet at you, but figured a million other people were doing it so i left it alone, lol.

    jessica’s dress is gorgeous.

    & for some reason i kinda like the tutu dress. maybe it’s the pastel colors. hate the pants, but really like the top half of what she’s wearing.

  18. Babs says:

    I’m laughing out loud at those couple pics. The look on their faces!

  19. Girl_ninja says:

    Those bangs are terribly unfortunate. Lets hope that they’re clip ins.

  20. Juliaoc says:

    I think it’s a hairpiece. I hope it’s a hairpiece. Please be a hairpiece.

  21. Rosey says:

    Emma’s bangs are way too short. The bob suits her, but I don’t know why you would think that length is a good idea.

  22. minx says:

    Emma always looks mopey and disagreeable so she deserves the bangs.
    Biel’s dress is beautiful!

  23. Esmom says:

    Biel looks beautiful and I always appreciate Shipka’s unique choices. I think Millie Bobby Brown could take some cues from her on how to be fashion forward while still age appropriate. Her ensemble is a little quirky — in fact her pants remind me of the little octagonal tiles on my bathroom floors — but I think she’s so lovely no matter what she wears.

  24. BengalCat2000 says:

    She kind of looks like the woman from Die Antwoord.

  25. Christa says:

    The blonde shade is 2x worse than the bangs, IMO.

  26. OG Cleo says:

    PSA: Emma Roberts is an abusive mess.

  27. Nikki says:

    Ha, ha, Kaiser, you hate all bangs practically, so I rolled my eyes just a tiny bit at the headline- UNTIL I SAW THEM! Either they’re extra heinous, or you’ve converted me to a bangs-hater as well.

  28. Livethelifeaquatic says:

    Kiernans dress looks like she attached Kotex pads to the straps. I’m embarrassed for her

  29. Erin says:

    Jessica Biel is taking my breath away! WOW. Her entire look is goals

  30. Other Renee says:

    When my daughter was little, I decided to cut her bangs. How hard could it be, thought I. When I finished, one side was a bit shorter than the other so I cut the longer side. But then that side was shorter so I cut the other side. By the time I was done she looked like Emma. It was awful. I let a hair stylist cut them after that.

    Jessica is stunning.

    I have to say that the tutu thingy is the stupidest outfit I’ve ever seen. It’s like someone deciding to dance Swan Lake then out to dinner wearing a backpack but didn’t want to change clothes in between and forgot the rest of the backpack.

  31. mannori says:

    is a hairstyle trend, one of those several stars start sporting out of nowhere probably suggested by their super expensive hairstylist, probably taken right ut of the latest runways and fashion weeks and sometimes stick and sometimes doesn’t.

  32. Rachel in August says:

    I rather like them, they suit her! I know I’m in the minority, but they flatter the shape of her face. I like all the outfits :)

  33. robyn says:

    Bad bangs for her, that’s for sure, unless she’s a Vulcan. Similar did look better on Spock! Maybe she’s hoping to be in a Star Trek movie.

  34. Kate says:

    She looks terrible, but I think these bangs are fake…

  35. holly hobby says:

    Wow her hair stylist must really hate her. Someone gave her the Barbie chop (that’s what girls did to their doll’s hair when they played beauty salon).

  36. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    I don’t usually care about bangs but Emma’s are a train wreck. So so bad.

    Jessica looks good, though I’m surprised that idiot she married didn’t show up to make it all about him as usual.

  37. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I don’t hate bangs. But I hate THESE bangs. They are terrible. Emma’s dress is beautiful but I had to LOL when you mentioned it as a wedding dress. She and Evan will probably never make it down the aisle. They can’t even maintain a stable relationship for longer than 6 months at a time before splitting up and then getting back together. Personally, I wish Evan would see the light and move on. I love Kiernan’s outfit. It’s cute, playful and age appropriate. I like that unlike a lot of her peers (Millie Bobbie Brown comes to mind), she’s not trying to sexy. She looks and dresses her age.

  38. Jessica says:

    OMG I love her bangs. I think they’re cool af.

  39. elle says:

    WTF happened to Evan Peters? He looks like they exhumed him for this event.

  40. magnoliarose says:

    Emma’s bangs do nothing for her face.

  41. Olive says:

    my god, those look JUST LIKE bangs I’ve had in the past after drunkenly deciding to cut my own hair. they have to be a mistake!!

  42. kimbers says:

    there’s a reason these baby bangs didn’t make a great trend in the 00s…Theyre butt ugly on EVERYONE!

  43. matahari says:

    I like them, they give her a sort of punky look, kind of Betty Paige..

  44. Twinkle says:

    Emma Roberts is not attractive in any way. At all.

  45. Cupcake says:

    Possibly the worst bangs I have ever seen. Just dreadful.

  46. Summer says:

    They look like clip-ons. Based on the other photos of her that night.

  47. Layla Love says:

    She’s an average looking Meh
