"Hi... yeeeeeeah, look, I know, okay? I know my new movie The Wedding Date looks like the bastard cousin of My Best Friend's Wedding, what with the shenanigans and the Dermot Mulroney and the redheaded star. And I know Julia Roberts would never be caught dead in this dress, okay? I know. I know it makes me look like a governess, or maybe a governess who got invited to the prom. But, see, all I hear about myself lately is that I'm a bitch, right? And what makes a woman more likable than a good pregnancy rumor? So shut up about me being a cow whom the other three on the show don't talk to, and start writing about how huge this dress makes me look. Babies are PR gold, bitches, so I'm going to grit my teeth, plaster this tight smile on my face, and rumor my way back into everyone's good graces. I'll even write the headline: "MESSING DRESSING TO HIDE BUMP?" Good, yes? In sum: I'M NICE AND I'M SOOOO HAPPY, AND WHAT IS MY DRESS HIDING?

"And if rumors don't work, I'll just make like I'm on Passions, kidnap my pregnant archnemesis, throw her in a well, and torment her with visions of clowns until she gives birth and I can pass off her baby as my own. All the baby benefits, but none of the stretch marks! Whee!"

Is it me, or is that an oven mitt trying to pass itself off as a skirt?

She looks like Tweedle Dum, or is that Tweele Dee?!?!? Hmmm

or maybe a governess hiding several siamese children under her skirt.

Ya know, I actually think Debra has looked very pretty in a womanly way with the bit of extra weight that has stuck to her since she had the baby. So I have no prob with that. But there is just nothing good to say about this dress!

Also, they don't look so bad in this view, but in other pics from the same occasion her giant plastic-looking hoop earrings are just TACKY! Very K-Mart. C'mon Debra... it's totally possible to be curvy *and* classy. Don't give up!

How could she do that to such lovely shoes? They deserve a better dress than that nightmare of an ensemble.

1. Bodice does not fit, looks like she needs socks where her breasts belong
2. Cap sleeve - GAH! Awful
3. PROPORTION of accessories - wrong Missy Messy!
4. Shoes (I kind of like in a Lucille Ball way) but do not work here.
Love her other than this debacle.

She looks like a tea cozy.

If you dropped her out of an airplane in this getup, she'd float harmlessly down, bouyed by the parachute-like proportions of her skirt.

Man - she looks like a cheap Lucy imitator - with Ricky hiding under her skirt. Make that Ricky, Fred and Ethel.

Posted by: Texasexile | Jan 31, 2005 1:06:26 PM

How can she look so big in that dress yet remain flat as a board?

Posted by: Toni | Jan 31, 2005 2:04:21 PM

Debra Messing dresses awful all the time anyway, so this dress is no surprise. Too bad. Pretty lady with terrible taste in clothing.

Vanessa says:

Girl, it is definitely Tweedle Dumb.

>She looks like a tea cozy.

Hah! Yes, she does. Either that or she's doing Minnie Mouse.

remember those little dolls that sat on the back of the toilet with their huge crocheted skirt covering an extra roll of toilet paper? Yeah. One of those.

Posted by: kalisah | Jan 31, 2005 4:54:03 PM

Or one of those birthday cakes with Barbie stuck in the middle and stiff folds of pastry unfolding all around her?

I'm not a big fan of the look where your boobs appear to be coming out of your stomach. Even if her co-stars aren't really gay, she could still use their dressing advice. She could use anyone's advice.

Posted by: Jonathan | Jan 31, 2005 6:40:26 PM

Wow, she's probably seething that her old costar Thomas Haden Church was nominated for an Oscar, while she had to buy/guilt everyone into finally giving her an Emmy. I think this outfit is the most obvious manifestation of her true inner self yet -- puffed up, charmless, witless, ugly. Very fitting.

Posted by: queenofattolia | Jan 31, 2005 6:55:35 PM

Looks like the top billows over her boobs, or lack thereof. Eesh, she's so bony.

Posted by: Trisha | Jan 31, 2005 7:30:44 PM

It's an alcholic-I-chose-this-dress-in-the-dark look, and it's terrifying me.

Posted by: Alexa | Jan 31, 2005 7:34:07 PM

BzzzzT! Try again, Debra.

Posted by: Esther | Jan 31, 2005 10:08:16 PM

Now if she were truly preggers, she'd be more perky than that.

I'm just sayin'. . .

(Looking back at my own pics from early preggo stage, biggest part of me = enormo boobs. Came waaay before tummy!)

Posted by: Pirate Bride | Feb 1, 2005 7:48:09 AM

Why in the world is the waist of this dress right underneath her breasts? Did she think this was a good look? Are they sagging already and this was the only way to keep them up? Good freakin Lord! Someone get this girl a new stylist stat!

Posted by: snowgirl | Feb 1, 2005 7:53:21 AM

Aah, yes. Excellent use of a Passions reference.

Posted by: Trish | Feb 1, 2005 9:19:02 AM

It's bizzaro dress world.
She's going back to her skeleton look (check out her collar bone and shrinking boobs) but the bottom half of the dress makes her look 9 months pregnant.
She and her dress need to reach a compromise. She'll eat and maintain a body weight where her bones don't punch holes in fabric and that dress will go to the dry cleaners and never come back.

Posted by: Southern Fried Fug | Feb 1, 2005 10:11:05 AM

I like the dress. A lot. So stick that in yer pipe and smoke it.

Posted by: Patton | Feb 1, 2005 11:02:40 AM

I can see how this might have looked quite pretty when it was sketched. I think if it was made in a soft, drapey fabric instead of cardboard it could have had more potential but those pleats at the front with a life of their own. Ugh!
