What Was She Thinking?

Oh Ali Larter...what are you wearing? The actress showed up at the InStyle Hair special issue launch party in New York City wearing this Notte by Marchesa dress. It looks like she's wearing a rose bush! YUCK!

I almost didn't recognize her for two reasons:
1) her new bangs...which I don't know that I like all that much. Is it me, or do they look way too long. I mean the one piece falls down onto the apple of her cheek!
2) this dress makes her look heavy...well not like regular person heavy, but like heavy for her. I mean don't get me wrong, the girl could stand to gain a few pounds...but wearing a dress that makes you instantly look bottom heavy is never a flattering look.

The only positive things I can say about this disaster of an outfit is that I do love her shoes, and the fuchsia color looks really great on her.

What do you think of this look on Ali? Would you wear it?
