At Golden Globes, Lucy Liu’s dress looks like grandma’s drapes; ‘Lucy Lui’ trends

Actress Lucy Liu is beautiful; for some reason she doesn’t age.

But the dress she wore at the Golden Globes tonight isn’t getting rave reviews.

It gets worse. Twitter users think her name is “Lucy Lui.”

    All the beautiful people in Hollywood are liberals. We own pop culture. We own the young.

      That about sums it up!

      I’m 25 and I beg to differ.

      Unfortunately pop culture doesn’t pay my bills or my kid’s college tuition or put food on my table.

      I seem to remember Hitler saying: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

      If you want to lay claim to a rotting, gutter culture and society. Have at it.

      You say that like it’s a good thing. It’s not, at all.

    Let’s get my future wife’s name right. It’s L-I-U, not l-u-i. Wake up, people.

      Is it all caps?

      My congratulations. She’s gorgeous. By the way, did you notice that the only one who likes her dress is Kelly Osbourne? Ever seen what Kelly wears?

        But she spelled her name right.

  • GaryTheBrave

    This is just proof that a beautiful woman can make an ugly dress look good, but I must agree with the tweeters. She needs to take it off. WOOF!

  • keyboard jockey

    The color is wrong for her skin tone. I have looked at Chinese paintings with similar print. Perhaps a nod to her heritage? Still the color is wrong.

    GORGEOUS <3 You need to have a heart of Class to appreciate this
    piece <3 Your acting sucks but you go girl!! you're rocking it!

    I’m sure most of the comments are coming from couch potatoes who wear t-shirts in a size small even thou they are an XXX and view top fashion on what is on sale at Walmart.

    Hmmm – reminds me of that old line out of the Carole Burnett show where she made a dress from the drapes in the spoof on Gone With the Wind….”This little ole thing? It’s just something I saw in the window!” lol That dress is pretty hideous.

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      And the curtain rod across her shoulders, brilliant!

  • peteee363

    she would make carol burnett proud!

  • Penny Robinson Fan Club

    Actually looks more like shower curtains.

  • Brian Pearson

    Nothing at all wrong with that dress. Good grief!

  • Monica Thompson

    I actually like the dress. She’s beautiful in it too.

  • Diane Stephan

    hey, it worked for Scarlett O’Hara.

    The Golden Globe Awards:

    A completely useless fabrication where liberal women of all ages are obliged to be disgustingly catty about the tastes of others they place on a pedestal.

  • IrishBoss

    I don’t know why I clicked on this thread, but it seems like I walked into a scene from Cinderella with her two step sisters tearing apart her dress. Youse wimmins be fierce to each other Wow!

  • Randi Starr

    So will they be able to tear her down enough to make their pitiful existence matter? Nah…………don’t think so.

  • DixieAngel_76

    I guess it’s pretty…. if you like patio umbrellas.

    • Randi Starr

      I do, esp. the pool beside it!

  • Clockwork_spider

    In my humble opinion the best dress I’ve seen tonight! Open your eyes to something new and unique, even if it looks a bit old fashioned. Who cares if it looks like your grandmother’s tablecloth? That’s the beauty of it all! That’s why it looks GOOD!

    The combination between the retro floral pattern and the braided hair gives a sense of simplicity and oldschool. At the same time, the style of the dress and the bright white is very elegant. She manage to look both innocent and mature at the same time.

    Good job on her stylist. I think this dress was an excellent choice.

  • linzyloo2

    I love the dress! I think it’s very classy and feminine compared to the trashy “style” we usually see at awards shows.

    Lucy Liu = better dressed than Lena Dunham

    I have a wing chair covered in that fabric

  • GaryTheBrave

    I’m trying to figure out why she was at the Golden Globes. Does she have a film out?

  • Judy Abbott

    I’m amazed at these comments! I thought her dress was spectacular…and a wonderful change from the other pretty-much-look alikes.

    • Randi Starr

      They are just pissed because she looks natural and fresh, not overly surgically enhanced,reshaped,plumped up with her sewn into the dress with 100 lb spanx in use.

  • MJ Pauls

    That was actually my favourite dress that I’ve seen so far! But then, I’m a weirdo who has mid-thigh length hair, corsets daily, and prefers skirts over jeans. 😀
