Vanessa Hudgens in cream Alberta Ferretti: gorgeous or tacky?


Last week, we had the horrible photos from the American premiere of Sucker Punch. The photos were just terrible, because all of the “stars” of the film were dressed like they were in a B-list pageant: lots of tacky satin gowns and angst. Last night was the London premiere for Sucker Punch, and I have to admit, some of the girls stepped it up a notch. Vanessa Hudgens is the obvious leader, I suppose, just because I know who she is. The gown is Alberta Ferretti. I like the gown, in general. I probably would have liked it better on someone else, but I don’t hate it on Vanessa.


I do have two problems with it, though. First of all, Vanessa is a compulsive over-dresser and pageant-gown-wearer. If it’s made from cheap looking satin, Vanessa buys it. This is one of the higher-quality gowns she’s worn, and that deserves applause, but she’s still over-dressed for a premiere, in my opinion. Second problem: this dress should have better tailoring. There’s too much fabric in the midsection, and it makes Vanessa look thick-waisted (which she is not).

And since I’m not feeling up to dissecting each of the “stars” dress-by-dress, here’s a group photo. I actually think Jena Malone is the most improved. Abbie Cornish just CANNOT dress to save her life, though.

    I’m not feeling the dresses at all. Both last time and this time around. Vanessa’s facial expressions always ruin it for me, but I’m also not a big fan of satin.

  2. sassenach says:

    Carla Gugino looks so pretty. Loved her on Californication.

  3. OtherChris says:

    THe dress is pretty but a little too grown up for her maybe? It might look better close up–her makeup is lovely.

  4. Riley says:

    Her mouth (which I don’t think can be natural but who knows) looks like the same mouth as the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. She annoys the crap out of me.

  5. Quest says:

    VH always goes overboard to draw attention, don’t care much for her – she is overrated and doesn’t do much for the dress.

  6. serena says:

    I like the dress on Vanessa, what I can’t stand is the hairstyle and the make up. All too tacky.
    Jena Malone.. oh my god… she’s too thin, I hope she’ll gain a few pounds because she looks horrible like this, look at her face.. ugh.

  7. Jackson says:

    She still looks like Snooki’s cousin to me.

  8. Chelsey says:

    What’s up with her wearing those scarf thingys on her head recently? That’s the second time I’ve seen her wearing one randomly with an outfit (and this time it’s with a nice dress?) Is she trying to start a new trend because, um…no.

  9. Huntress says:

    It might be that I’m not on-trend with current design details, but the way the dress is ruching at the hips just looks wrong, I’ve seen stuff on shop discount rails because they’ve had flaws which produce that effect.

  10. Kaboom says:

    I much prefer Jena Malone’s outfit on that group picture.

  11. Sloane Wyatt says:

    I think she looks lovely in a beautiful dress. It’s so cute when Vanessa plays dress up!

    Next time, she should try a gown that she doesn’t swim in. They do come in munchkin you know.

  12. guesty says:

    Too big @ the top…too tight in the hips. So tacky. Not enuff boobage to fill it out.

  13. SassyOne says:

    Unflattering & Ill-fitting.

  14. Hmmm says:

    Maybe she is the blind about the actress getting a pregnancy test kit. She looks a little thick waisted when the dress hits her middle and she wasn’t poochy there before.

  15. original kate says:

    lovely dress but not on her – she’s too small and too young. plus it’s not fitted well. imagine it on cate blanchett….sigh*

  16. Alice says:

    Anything, no matter how modest and stylish, automatically becomes tacky and trashy when put on someone tacky and trashy.

  17. anti says:

    looks like an ill sized nightgown.

  18. Franny says:

    The dress is nice, just not on Vanessa.

  19. your momma says:

    what Alice said.

  20. ordinarygirl86 says:

    The dress is a little mature for Vanessa but her maekup looks great

    Jena looks so much better here than the weird crop top she sported last week

    Carla is always stunning

    The rest simply fade into the background for me….MEH

  21. Kayla says:


    I agree with you, she’s recently single, would consider pregnancy as a great way to get publicity… but is on the young side.

  22. Jess says:

    I really love the hood thing for some inexplicable reason, but you’re right, the dress is too much, especially compared to the other girls. Also, it doesn’t seem to fit right.

  23. Liana says:

    at least she’s wearing clothing.

  24. Sue says:

    @Hmmmm there are picture of her in workout clothes and there no bump I think it’s just the dress satin is very hard fabric to wear.

  25. B. says:

    No shade, just stating my opinion. Girlfriend is not very pretty, she is just there. She’s like a little hairball or something, esp. with those sideburns of hers.

  26. lcat says:

    I have seen Abbie Cornish a million times in the last week(actually 5 minutes ago on another site), and still can’t figure out which person she is in this pic.

  27. Zelda says:

    Why is Hollywood trying so hard to make Abbie Cornish happen?
    She is the very definition of forgettable. I can never remember what she looks like, what she has been in…I can’t even remember having read an interview of hers. Human oatmeal.

  28. munchies says:

    Kaiser, you should have photos of Vanessa in that dress with her stunning gold shoes..

  29. The Bobster says:

    The dress needs a belt.

  30. Zelda says:

    You know, I have such a crush on Carla Gugino, but this bridesmaid look is just not doing for me.
