Style Rx: Cat Deeley's Just Waiting to Exhale

Who: Cat Deeley

Where: An L.A. party for Dukes of Melrose

Diagnosis: Fun idea, poor execution. There’s no doubt abs are in, but pulling the look off requires a healthy dose of effortlessness. The stripes, the pleats and the over-the-top makeup — plus the distinct impression that she’s clenching her stomach muscles for dear life — don’t give the look quite the “cool California girl” vibe it requires.

Prognosis: Fortunately Deeley has great style, so we know this can be saved with a little style surgery. We say ditch the matchy top and add a boxy black cropped tee. Apply eye makeup remover liberally to the under-eye liner and shake out the hair. Finally, exhale. She’s got a great midriff already; no sense in passing out to prove it!

I really don’t know her but if there is one thing I would like to express to young Hollywood is time and place and you don’t have to show skin to be sexy. That photo is awkward to begin with because she is sucking it in and the picture comes off as a joke. But she certainly doesn’t need to suck it in. It just would have been a gorgeous dress if it was a whole dress.

true, she doesn’t look relaxed at all – but it’s not THAT bad. especially when we see so much worse that’s passed off as attractive. please.

That’s as bad as the bumble bee outfit she wore a couple of years ago.

RJR on

The outfit is horrible and she looks like she can’t breathe from sucking her stomach in so hard. Does it matter though? In my opinion, she is one of the most unattractive women in Hollywood. Definitely could use a nose job.

I love how everyone is attaching her to “young hollywood”….isn’t she in her 30’s? She is too old to dress like this. Sorry kitty cat.

Kim on

The outfit itself isn’t all that bad….it’s the awkward position she’s standing in.

She looks like its painful….such a beauty….I agree….I think the older you get the lighter the eye liner needs to be….and circling the eye just makes a small eye smaller….line the top lid…only….leave the bright red lips for a more subtle color….less skin…who cares what your belly looks like….show those legs…and leave the stripes to the zebras….they just make people dizzy! OH ….let that beautiful hair down…up and tight…belongs in the library!
