"This Is It" Premiere

Michael Jackson's having a great year, career-wise, isn't he?

In a move that proves that nothing helps a flat-lined career better than an untimely death, dozens of stars showed up (who never would have if he was alive) for the Los Angeles premiere of Michael Jackson's documentary "This Is It" held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Let's judge them!




Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2009
Model: Anabel Belikova





High scores for this "I'm Bad, I'm Bad, come on"- inspired look. Love the boots. Extra points for not wearing one glove.






Balmain Fall 2008 Collection
Model: Lily Donaldson






It's not a bad dress, but she had the hem raised just a bit too much and now she's on the train headed for Slutty Town. The Balenciaga shoes are fierce, though.





Temperley London Spring 2009 Collection
Model: Jourdan Dunn







Oh Paula, you sparkly little unicorn, you. What the hell is this? She looks like the Baby Shower Fairy here. How is it that she managed to reach the advanced age of whatever advanced age she is without figuring out how to fit her boobs? Granted, these are probably not her original boobs, but she NEVER wears anything that fits them correctly. And the Louboutin shoes? Horrid.

Love that first dress, but there is obviously something I don't see going on with her hair, as she can't keep her hands off it.


Oh Paula- this is so YOU.

That doesn't mean there's no need for improvement, though.

She does always looks like she's trying for Fairy-tale looks.

It's called "wind."


Cedar, it was extremely windy in Southern Ca last night, so she's probably just trying to keep the wind from pulling it down. She looks really pissed at the wind, doesn't she?


Anonymous, your answer was much better!


J-Lo is rocking that LV look. And, Cedar, I read that it was really windy at the premiere, so that probably why she keeps messing with her hair. Jenny from the Block should have bought some AquaNet.

As for Paula, don't ever change. Your crazy is why people love you.


I totally agree with the pink shoes. I can't imagine them looking good with any outfit.


bitchybitchybitchy

the Baby Shower Fairy!!!!

BWAAHHHAAAHAA!!!

Is Paula going for the "No dress can contain these" look here? I think so.

Like J-Lo in that Herve Leger number-she was working it!


as for the bit about JLO's hair, it was really windy in LA yesterday


Love the COLOR of Paula's dress.... that's all, just the color
JMB


Jen: Would have preferred it with the shoulder pads. Also, the updo was clearly a mistake on a windy night. But the boots are fab.

Viv: That strap is meant to sit lower on her neck. It looks like it's about to strangle her.

Paula: Totally agree on the boobs... :/ But I actually do like the shoes. They fit well and the color seems to go.


JLo is rocking that look. Love it!


Jenny looks fabulous! Love the entire look.

PaulaPaulaPaula...At least she's consistent. The Barbie shoes made me laugh because they are exactly what one would expect her to wear. What I'd like to know is what's going on with her makeup. It looks awful.

Well, now we know why Paula didn't show up to judge on So You Think You Can Dance last night.


JLo looks amazing.
Viveca Fox looks like a cougar on the prowl, and not in a good way.
Paula always brings the crazy, doesn't she? While I hate the fit on the boobs, I really don't have a problem with the shoes. She obviously matched them to the pink in the dress. It could have been a lot worse so I think she looks good - for her.


That dress is much better on J.Lo than the model. She makes it look softer and less severe.

I like that Paula went for some color! But the accessories do get a little too sparkly and little girl-ish.


I love the pink shoes...just would like to see them with something else.


"Tlo said: Granted, these are probably not her original boobs"



You're right.

I saw an E! True Hollywood Story about her original boobs. There was that time in the late 90's when they did time for holding up a 7-11; but now they've put their life back together and performing a one-woman show at a dinner theatre in Encino.

No Adam Lambert/Katy Perry comments?

I loath J-Lo, so I'm not as nice. But I admit that's because I'm not impartial at all when it comes to her.

Vivica's dress made her look very stumpy.

As for Pauler.... Oh, I love her crazy ass, what can I say? And the dress had potential if it was the right fit.

The hair, though? No. But, then again, to be fair, I heard it was incredibly windy and noticed that lots of celebs had hair issues. I'll give her a pass...


if it looks remotely like a harem, count Paula in.

and don't be hatin' on her. It is hard to make clear judgements on "boob fit" when you are totally qualuded out.

Ally says people love "your crazy" Paula. So keep up the meds!

ROFLMAO!!

Oh, GT, that was brilliant! Thanks for my morning laugh! So glad I was not drinking coffee while reading!

I'm sure I can't possibly afford JLo's boots, but does anyone know who those are? Want.


I like everything about the Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress EXCEPT the hem. I'd prefer it just be clean than ragged. Not a fan of the boots with it either, they make me think of Catwoman.

The Balmain dress is pretty on the runway, but it looks a little snug, and way short, on the red carpet? Tiles? I love the shoes, but I don't like them with the dress.

What makes the Temperley London work on the runway is the juxtaposition of the shoes with the dress. Putting it with the patent Barbie-pink shoes, and wrapping her tits up like they're a few sizes smaller than they are almost ruins it. Her hair and makeup is terrible too. BUT at least she didn't wear the head piece. We know how she loves tiaras. Even though that head piece is pretty cool.


Vivaca's dress deleted her neck. Ugh. It looked much better on the model in that respect. But for Viv as a whole, I would say it's more attractive than the tight-short-shiny she usually wears...


"I saw an E! True Hollywood Story about her original boobs. There was that time in the late 90's when they did time for holding up a 7-11; but now they've put their life back together and performing a one-woman show at a dinner theatre in Encino."

Gotham Tomato, you slay me.

TLO said "dozens of stars showed up (who never would have if he was alive)"

you are so right, makes me sad.


There is just something about Paula Abdul... pick any gorgeous dress/gown, put it on Paula, and it somehow ends up looking like a cheap rag.


Paula must use a stylist at some point, right? Why doesn't anyone explain to her how a dress is supposed to fit/look? Her breasts always look as if they're being actually tortured! Of course, no stylist would have put those shoes with that dress....


I want those boots. Those are HOT.

As for Paula's boobs - I have no comment. She looked horrible. Her stylist should be fired.


JLo - Fierce all around
VivFo - Agree about the hemline. If she kept it just above knee would have lengthened her torso and worked much better. Insane shoes, tho!
PaulAb - Agree, but I will give the Louboutain pumps their props had they been paired with a simple black sheath - IN MAY!


"on the train to Slutty Town."

Ha!Though who can blame her for wanting to show off those gams?

I so did not recognize Viveca Fox, though.

Love the Léger dress.


Love, love, love those boots. J-Lo looks fierce, and the dress fits her perfectly.

Viveca Fox (who I also did not recognize) is much curvier than the model, which is probably why they shortened that dress. And her neck is not as elongated as the model's, either. Could fit her better, but I like it.

Paula Abdul is too short for a handkerchief hem, which is difficult to pull off unless you're tall and willowy. The less said about the rest of the look the better.

LOL at Baby Shower Fairy, and the comment about Abdul's boobs.


JLo, yes;

unknown (to me) second woman - almost, but I agree, too damn short;

Paula. Oh, Paula. She looks just horrid. At least she didn't feel like she had to wear funereal black. But the electric blue and pink shoes is just making me want to hurl the oatmeal.


Sorry, Gotham. Those were not her original boobs. Her original boobs were backup dancers with Denny Terrio, and nobody knows what happened to them after that.


JLo hits it out of the park.
Not bad for Auntie Viv, considering she's so often a don't I give her an IN here.
Paula *sigh* just never gets it quite right. Always something off about her looks.


It's hard to believe that neither Paula nor her style crew don't notice how awful her decolletage is. It's worse than seeing cellulite with short shorts! What is wrong with these people?


"Brooklyn Bomber said: Sorry, Gotham. Those were not her original boobs. Her original boobs were backup dancers with Denny Terrio, and nobody knows what happened to them after that."



Then again, no one knows what happened to Denny Terrio either.

Another Paula Abdul special done by her favorite stylist- Helen Keller.


WTF is with JLo's aye makeup? Jocelyn Wildenstein wannabe? And that "inspired" look she does with her eyes makes her seem constipated.

Paula's dress id very pretty. Not on her, though.


JLo looked FABulous.

Ms. Fox looked barely o.k. Dress would have been way better a few inches longer.

Ms. Abdul was her own damn self. If the dress had fit a little better (and maybe been a tad shorter - I thought thought the proportions were better on the model, but then she's curvier as well as waay shorter so maybe the longer length was right) I wouldn't have complained.

And while I personally hated the pepto-pink shoes, I must point out that except for the color they are the same damn platform heels, with or without peep-toe, that have been worn everywhere by everybody this year and last. And in black are usually deemed acceptable-to-perfect.

So hell, "Baby Shower Fairy" is appropriate as well as funny but why shouldn't she?


About Paula's boobs.
Simple answer: they got older. They deflated. They don't spill up and over anymore.
Which means strapless dresses are not going to look good on her ever again.

A lesson that many, many no-longer-starlets really, really need to learn.

It's BECAUSE they're pink that they're being criticized.


Sorry for going off topic but...

I'm sad that there won't be a Glee post tomorrow. (Or episode to watch tonight of course.) Your re-caps are a highlight of my week.


Baby shower fairy. Hah!

It's a truism that Paula frequently has painful boob fit issues AND Vivica likes a breeze in her lady area. That bitch can still pull the look off tho so breeze away if that's your thing V.


JLo looks amazing. Now that she's not everywhere, all the time, I've come to like her.

Viveca is so gorgeous, but she looks ridiculous in that dress.

Oh, Paula. (But I love the shoes.)


"Baby shower fairy" - ha!

Black totally washes JLo out, imo. And somehow her makeup's not right. Excuse me, "maquillage."

We get it Vivica--you're hot.

Like Swinton and Bai, Paula's created her own category--she can only be judged against her past outfits! And She wanted Disney colors that night, people! Therefore, I only take points off for Boobs Akimbo

For Paula Adbul that's an in; mitigated of course by, well, being Paula Abdul.


Thank goodness you boys added that shot of Jennifer Lopez smiling because I would have rated her an 'out' just for that GD tired sexyface alone, no matter how fierce the outfit.

Am I the only one tired of seeing her make that face? She looks freakin' ridiculous.


How could you neglect to mention the fug of Paula's hair and bag, TLo? Or was it all just too, too much for your poor eyes?

It was for mine.

Your titties are too old for that shit, Paula, dear.


Interesting to note that all three have had face lifts. Good old Jen is starting to look Asian/Hispanic.


I thought the boots looked too tight at the top of JLo's calves. Not that her calves are big, just that the boots looked too narrow.

(while wide lower on the leg)


Just wanted to say that I LOVE it when you post the dress from the runway model along with the celeb photo. It helps to see what real (OK, I'll put that in quotes) what "real" people look like versus the runway show.


I like what J.Lo is wearing but I wouldn't have said it's "Bad" inspired, with the reaching exception of the boots. (Though the outfit is fierce.)

And Paula, honey...no. Also, is it safe to assume that all the Jackie Jackson drama she had in the 80s is healed over, considering she showed up to this?


JLo looks youthful and fierce; Vivica's dress is okay but the strap is making her look wide up top; Paula looks RETARDED but that's nothing new...

IN
MEH
OUT


I'm going to go out on a limb and say I love the dress Paula is wearing. I don't really like it on her, and definitely not with those shoes, but on the right woman, that dress would be rockin'.


Vivica should win 'The Heidi' for this one. Unfortunately outside of 'Runway' this short, tight, shiny dress is on someone with a real body and therefore the award becomes 'The One-Way Ticket to Slutty Town'.


Paula's shoes look like a stripper bridesmaid's.


JLo: What in the hell? The boots and the dress are heinous together. And PUT YOUR GODDAMN HAND DOWN.

VFox: Pretty hot. I think the hemline is fine.

PAb: Oh, good gracious. You will never learn.


Jlo looks fabulous, the other two, not so much.


i'm not dorothy gale

"Baby shower fairy".....oh you two! I do love the first look, but not the second. Even here in the midwest the one shoulder look is so OVER.


My thought upon seeing that Paula close-up was

Worst.Cleavage.Ever.


JLo rocks the dress. In!

Vivica....got nothing. Worse than In or Out; I don't care.

Paula, Paula, Paula, not bad for her. In, except for the shoes.


Jennifer--IN (I think it's windy and she's trying to salvage her updo)

Vivica--OUT (you nailed it, TLo, too short. Ruins the line of the dress, in addition to slutting it up.)

Paula--OUT (Her boobs say "OUCH" and the shoes are wrong. Nice dress, though.)


I desperately want the Herve Leger dress. Actually, I'll take the Balenciaga shoes as well!


The fashion comments are spot-on. However, I just want to thank T.Lo for stating the obvious. NO ONE would have shown up to the premiere, if Michael Jackson was actually there.

Then explain the Staples Center. Don't get it twisted.


*sigh* I just don't know.

All of JHo's styling and profiling is really pissing me off, here.

Vivi has a hell of a bod, but that's a little to Beyonce for her.

And let's face it. This is the best Paula's looked in years. Don't push it any further.


Speaking of Louboutin shoes...

New Louboutin Barbie is coming out in December, and she's gorgeous.


I'm pretty sure that Vivica Fox didn't have that dress hemmed. It's just too small and the hemm is rising.


The sad thing is, with a good stylist Paula could look really great. She's in fantastic shape.


Make Mine Hairy

I HATE HATE HATE that gotta-pee pose. Crossing the legs while standing up only one thing for a girl .. makes her look like she's GOTTA PEE!
Look at Viveca Fox for a standing pose that makes not only the legs but the entire body look fantastic.


Paula Trainwreck Abdul

And seriously, is that the ONLY way JLo knows how to look sexy - to rub her hand on the side of her face?
