Ann Romney Wears Fantastically Ugly Dress On LIVE! With Kelly And Michael

Mitt Romney is on a desperate mission to save his flailing campaign after the apocalyptic fuck-up that was the Mother Jones leak. So, he did what any alien sent to earth to become a Brook Brothers model would do: he went on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael (?) and brought along his expert humanizing device, wife Ann Romney. Predictably, Mitt opened by talking about how many people are out of work (so many! not that you actually care, though) and claimed he wanted to become President to help the 47 million people on food stamps. Can we get a gif for that? Sí, se puede:

Now, the reason we’re bringing up this callously insincere rescue mission on a show we don’t watch is Ann Romeny’s outfit. Ann’s style has been inconsistent to unremarkable since her time in the spotlight, as if she’s trying to figure out how a first lady should dress (understandable!). We thought she looked nice enough at the RNC in her red Oscar de la Renta, but also kind of stiff. Basically, we’re all for the idea of her getting out of her “fitted shirt dress in a solid color” comfort zone and into some floral prints.

Just not these. Anything but these:

Do you want to get closer?

DON’T STARE DIRECTLY AT IT!

This dress is awful. We couldn’t help but think she was trying to capture a little bit of Kate Middleton‘s recent Prabal Gurung magic, only it went horribly, blindingly wrong. This is not a dress for an aspiring first lady, this is a beach cover up from the Chico’s Long Island collection.

But, here, we’re a democratic organization:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

UPDATE: This was taped a few days before the Mother Jones leak which is oddly prescient, considering the talking points. Oh well. The dress is still hideous.

    Joseph called…he wants his technicolor dream coat back.
    An old joke, I admit, but just so goddamn appropriaie!

    All my favorite Starburst flavors in one dress!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that rally hated this dress. All that color at one time and the nerve of her wearing that dark nail polish and shoes. I know she can well afford a manicure and a nude shoe.

    For the record, this interview was taped last week, prior to the Mother Jones leak.

    Can we be a bit more creative, and critique his politics instead of how his wife looks?

  • oldguy

    Critique his politics?? Isn’t this a a fashion site?

    • Ashley Cardiff

      Thanks for doing this so we don’t have to.

    • Avodah

      It is? Why is there always weird, uncreative political quips? I’m confused.

  • Avodah

    You know what looks awesome? Tired leather jackets, greasy hair and red lipstick.

  • Ebuddy

    They cleaned up that bitch pretty well!!!

    If Michelle Obama wore that–and she’s been seen frequently in *much* worse–you’d love it.
