Butterfly...the $1m dress

Would you pay $1m for this 'Butterfly Dress'? (Let's not make the question contingent upon whether you actually have the money)...I don't care how many diamonds are involved...it's too J-Lo-esque (pre-skeletwin wannabe phase)...and no...calling it 'The Butterfly" in French doesn't detract from the fact that the back-design doesn't really look like a butterfly.

Speaking of dresses...people are talking of Scarlett Johansson's choice of dress for the London "The Island" premiere...it's been called 'ill-fitting'...whatever...our little Scar-J is beautiful...if she didn't look like such a woman...she'd look as girlie as Ewan...who appears to be going for the effeminate Jude Law look.

Why butterfly, I don't know...
Scarlett and Ewan:
like a gorgeous mom with her girlish teen-age (I don't-want-to-grow-up type) kid.

Ewan is hot.

sillyme said...

well...the dress does nothing for her tummy; however, i suppose she was thinking no ones eyes would get that far down.

Oh no, she doesn't have washboard abs. (She actually looks like a woman) Let's shoot her!

Elisa said...

haha..good observation franci and sillyme :) yeah...that's right nick...she looks like a woman alright...I don't get why a bit of paunch is 'unattractive'...but a huge ass like J-Lo's is attractive...I guess it's just what gets shoved down your throat by the media. :)

I hate to be the one to say anything negative about Scarlett, but you have to admit that her dress is not very flattering.

Veggieboo said...

I think the dress is beautiful.
And the dress on Scarlett is too tight.

Blue said...

Great dress, great figure... just needed to be not so tight across the hips so that it would actually FLATTER her figure.

Elisa said...

yeah...not a lot of people can look curve free in white satin though :) I don't know...maybe it's because I like Scar-J...I still think she looks really great :)
love,

the butterfly dress isn't very body-friendly. i can't imagine anyone wearing it very well. like they were so busy tacking diamonds on that they forgot to finish the cloth parts.

scarlett looks good... but the dress looks as if it could have used some tailoring. any body looks best in something shaped to it, rather than something shaped for what the wearer may have preferred to be. a little more room across the hips and a little bit of taper down the legs and it would have been a lot more flattering to her.

JLo's allowed to get away with having a fat ass because she's "Latina".

Bah! Scarlet looks reasonably nice in the photo because her hair looks good, she's pretty, and she has a lovely smile. Her dressmaker (or whoever bought her that dress) needs to be shot for not getting it fitted properly, nothing but the best for the young lady who was so good in Lost in Translation.

Elisa said...

yeah...I think Sacrlett's won me over for life after her Lost in Translation performance. :)

Is Scar J pregnant? Where did that paunch come from?

Elisa said...

she's always had a little paunch...ever since Lost in Translation :)

Sylvie said...

i think she looks great...shes one of the, i believe, only actress in hollywood with a stomach. lets hope she keeps her body instead of looking like all the sticks now.

Olivia said...

Scarlett is pregnant.. sheesh.. I know she could have got another dress.. but maybe she was hoping nobody would make such a big deal about it.
