StyleRx: Jenny McCarthy Is Suffering From 'Sexy Librarian' Delusions

Who: Jenny McCarthy

Where: Opening night of Broadway’s A Night With Janis Joplin

Diagnosis: First, the good news: McCarthy’s hair is looking good. Now the bad news: That’s pretty much the only good thing about this outfit. The queen of body flaunting goes uncharacteristically covered up in this layered Gucci look. Since she’s a mom to a young son, we understand why she might want to rein things in a little bit, but a sharp right into “grandma” style territory is not the answer. It looks like she just piled on all the cool-weather separates in her closet (digging really deep for those elbow-length gloves). The belt is the final blow in this “death by accessories” situation.

RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on questionable star style in “Obsessed or Hot Mess?”

Prognosis: Take it off! Ditch the moss-green sweater, gloves, belt and let some skin show. The teal pencil skirt, black lace tank and leopard T-bar pumps can stay. And if you’re looking for a sleek topper, try a structured blazer and save the cozy knits for movie nights with Donnie Wahlberg.

So, your thoughts? Do you agree, or does she look perfect?

That outfit is a disaster head to toe. I don’t really get her and what image she’s trying to portray. Her glasses say smart, but her overall look and limited vocabulary say something completely different. No one will ever take her seriously.

This outfit is awful, does not compliment her at all.But I don’t understand how she left the house like this,does’ ntshe have a stylist? I never got her either,i dont watch the view anymore nfl of next.

This outfit looks like she is 6 years old and playing dress up in her mom’s closet. lol

The View is a joke. One sided, liberal, no point/counterpoint so pointless. No differing of thoughts or opinions. Adding her was a joke. Those glasses are ridiculous.

The sweater and belt are great, perfect for fall fashion.. but the gloves seem a bit much.. other than that I think its a tasteful ensemble, very classy for a mom :)

She actually styled it the way it was on the runway. So I have no idea what Jenny or Gucci was thinking

How about this? Who really made anyone an expert on fashion, and why does everyone have to look the same? It’s just somebody’s opinion. I think everybody is entitled to their own style. I get tired of fashion snobs cutting people down. To each his own. It’s a free country.
