Worst Dressed at the 2012 Oscars

Well, this certainly wouldn't be a good 'Bridesmaids' dress choice! Actress Melissa McCarthy's Marina Rinaldi gown wasn't one of our faves.

    It's not easy to design for the larger woman and create a flattering line. This is not the perfect dress, but it works with the flaws anyway and creates a "waistline" by accentuating the smallest part underneath the bodice line (the silver beltline), covers the upper arm area with the illusion sleeves with the skirt flowing away from the body. Very smart. Lovely color, good hairstyle, etc. Thank you, Stacy and Clinton, for your lessons on "What Not to Wear". Next, please.

    She looks gorgeous!! What's bad about the dress? Is it because she is fat? Omg,she looks better than some ''skinny'' women at the oscars.

    I hated this dress. It looked like a nightgown or my grandmas old faded curtains. Oh well. It is much too hard for really obese women to look good in dresses.

  • Diane

    The dress is gorgeous and regal.

  • Katie

    This dress doesn't looks bad because she is overweight. It looks bad because it's a bad dress.

  • Selma

    Maybe it isn't the most flattering dress, but I still think she looks beautiful, the color suits her.

  • Stacy

    I am fat so I know. Fat people just never look good in dresses. Especially light colored ones.

    The dress did not cling to her, she looked good.

  • AlaBella

    She's full-figured and unfortunately designers discriminate against non-stick-skinny people. I think the dress looks nice on Melissa, though

  • Rose

    I actually think she looks quite pretty. Maybe the dress wouldn't have been by number one pick, but it's not entirely crude.

    It is not easy for fat women to pull off a good look, specially in a society that leaves 'pretty clothes' only for thin girls, instead of trying to include everyone.Big sizes are always full of awful designs. Having said this, Tadashi Shoji makes an amazing job with Octavia Spencer who's a big lady herself. Melissa only needs a person who knows how to work her figure to her advantage; and yes there's always a way.

    I prefer to say that she's "full figured." Don't hate on them Hollywood. They represent the average American! :-P

    Fat people dont have much of an option when it comes to dresses so i think she looked just fine

    Let's face it: her figure is a difficult one to flatter, and this dress doesn't do it. Too much drapery. Drab color
