    Love the look and her new do. 10.
    I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

    I LOVE THIS DRESS! She looks a bit like she's channeling Ariel from The Little Mermaid, but the color, the fit, the style are all amazing on her! The drape effect is beautiful. She's not showing as much cleavage as I've seen from her before. And the peek-a-boo leg is very clever. It's technically high-cut but since it's covered in fabric so it's not too much.

    I just wish she'd done something more elegant with her hair and makeup. I don't like her hair color either. But if she'd remained blonde maybe she'd look too washed out?

    It fits her nicely and flatters her figure beautifully. The color is nice and complements her new hair color (why did she change her hair color???). But the swathed, gauzy fabric look just isn't my style. And the train thing is a bit much.

    I love a good mermaid gown. This one is gorgeous...perfectly etherial. It requires no jewelry. And the long loose hair goes perfectly with the gown. The skirt is way too long though...she's gonna trip and break something. That's my only critique. Otherwise, I'd give her a 9.

    I don't think red hair suits her.

    Not in love with the gown, either.

    She looks great. I don't like blue, but it looks good on her. And her hair color really suits her. The back of the dress is kinda weird.

    9.95 Beautiful dress, gorgeous color, just the right amount of skin and bling, great hair and makeup, she has a great figure. If she had worn earrings and maybe nail polish in a nice coral color I would make it a 10.
    I love this look so much. High five to her, her stylist, her mom, and whoever else helped make this look happen.

    I like it (I'd be happier if the bodice was a little different, it looks too much like her bejeweled bra is showing for me). Wish she wasn't wearing bright pink lipstick.

    6 - I hate the hair colour on her and think the colour of her dress clashes with it

    9.5 Something looks a little off with the bodice. Otherwise, gorgeous mermaid look. On my computer her lipstick is subdued.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.

    This exactly.

    I agree.

  • SCGSCG Posts: 5,416Registered Users
    I love it! And I must be among the minority here, because I kinda like her new hair color. I think it looks better than some of the blonde colors I've seen her sporting.

    I really like it. I think she looks beautiful. I don't know who she is but I didn't even notice that the hair color might not be natural.

    She gets a 10 in my book.
    Texture: Medium
    Porosity: Normal
    Elasticity: Normal

    I guess i am just average go figure.

    I think the dress is gorgeous, love the giant turquoise-colored cocktail ring. Nice subdued makeup, beautiful hair. Love the hair color — I don't know this actress and would have guessed she was a natural redhead.

    I also like the combo of the blue with her red hair. Vibrant.

    As is often the cases with these, I would have made it a 10 if I coveted her ensemble, which I don't. It's not really my taste. But I think she looks fantastic in it.
  • RedCatWavesRedCatWaves Posts: 31,259Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    I like the haircolor also. As a redhead, she looks special. As a blonde, she was just one of a million similar Hollywood women.

    I love the hair colour! I have no idea who this is and assumed it was her natural colour.

    I like the dress - I'd prefer it was one colour rather than two blues that don't sit to well together. Not so keen on the sequins. But overall it is lovely and shows of her figure well.

  • GoddessLalaGoddessLala Posts: 351Registered Users
    Ooh, I like! I like her hair color and the dress, but I do think the dress would look better if it were emerald instead of turquoise.
  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,060 Administrator
    I don't know who she is either, and never would've guessed that her hair wasn't naturally red.

    I love the entire look except the dress looking like it's too long, and not really feeling the openness of the neckline (or the jeweled part) I also feel like at least some jewelry would've been nice. It wouldn't have to be anything big or flashy, though--just a tiny touch of it, that's all.

    I really, REALLY love red-haired people in aqua/turquoise/green. I get SO tired of seeing people wearing black/gray/tan all the time when they go out.

    Overall, a 9.5
