Beauty pageant

I actually winced when I opened this picture of Ashley Tisdale in Jenny Packham at the London premiere of High School Musical 3.

Dress aside, she just looks odd. Like her head is unreasonably and disproportionately large for her body. And her face is kinda puckered.

From there, the dress is just really, super-duper, crazy busy. Little beaded ruffles all over the bodice/skirt and bigger ruffles on the sleeves. Little rhinestones on the waist and bigger rhinestones at the neck. Oh yeah, plus it’s sheer, with more little rhinestone embellishments.

The whole look feels a little JonBenet Ramsey gaudy dress-your-six-year-old-like-she’s-a-sexpot. Never a good look.

Fountain of youth

Why is JLo sporting a shapeless parchment paper clown dress? Did she forget to take off her tank and bike shorts after finishing her triathlon?

Obviously, Jennifer Lopez’s look is over-the-top luxury, and the dress is Dolce and Gabbana). But does that mean she has to look older? She’s only 39. Halle Berry is three years older, for goodness sakes, and is still wearing appropriately youthful clothes.

So why is JLo choosing bouffant aqua net hair, a schlumpy dress and mother of the bride pumps?
