Noomi Rapace In Carolina Herrera – ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ London Premiere

I almost cried when I saw Noomi Rapace on the red carpet for the ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ London premiere last night.

The Swedish actress wore one of my favourite designers, Carolina Herrera, but via her styling she totally ruined the look.

Granted, this strapless Resort 2012 black-and-ivory gown with a polka-dot bustier and bold stripes would’ve been hard for anyone to pull off, but the hair and makeup are equally tragic.

Her hair looks very greasy and the makeup looks like it was applied by Coco the Clown.

Nothing is good here.

    I’m sorry, but this gown is a ready-made red carpet disaster. Only the tallest, thinnest and most confident of stars could pull a dress this loud and tricky off successfully. Noomi’s hair and makeup are terrible but, in all honesty, I don’t think the dress is the wisest of designs.

      I agree 100%.

    • Linda December 9, 2011 at 15:19 #

      Yes, you are right. Well put.

      i agree. you have to have the thinnest of waists to pull this off.
      it reminds me of the Henri Bendel bags and tissue paper.

      I don’t like this dress at all but maybe Zoe could pull it off?

      • Martin December 9, 2011 at 23:50 #

        If anyone in the world could do it, I think it would be Zoe Saldana. And probably ONLY Zoe Saldana. What an unfortunate dress.

          Exactly my thoughts. Well put :) It’s certainly unfortunate!

    I agree FC.

    I just can’t…

    What happened to her? She’s so pretty, and it looks like she’s making herself uglier as the premier run goes. When I saw this dress I thought I’d have the same feeling I did when I saw Audrey Hepburn in a picture of the 1988 Oscars (http://www.fabsugar.com/50-Outrageous-Oscar-Fashion-Moments-14370622?page=0,0,5 ) Slightly baffled, but somehow adoring it. This is just wrong though. XP

      not sure.

      From Balmain when she first came on our radar to this?

      Baffled

    WRONGNESS.

    This dress needed impeccable styling a supermodel to make it look good, and then it might have looked great. Maybe someone like Naomi Campbell could rock the hell out of it.

    what a mess.

    She looks like Tina Fey here!

    • mattison December 9, 2011 at 17:56 #

      Yes! Although, I doubt Tina Fey would even think about attempting something like this. Something about this dress screams Tim Burton to me.

    • Tracy L December 10, 2011 at 03:06 #

      I totally agree! Saw the pic and thought to myself “what the hell happened to Tina Fey?”

  9. Parvati December 9, 2011 at 15:53 #

    I really can’t imagine who could wear this dress and actually pull it off. The prints and the design are so unflattering. Apart from the dress, the hair only makes things worse.

  10. Leti December 9, 2011 at 21:38 #

    I cannot imagine what could have compelled her to sport this hair. It’s so dowdy! She looks like a housewife.

  11. Tania December 9, 2011 at 23:20 #

    I think Gwen Stefani could pull off this look. On Noomi just no!

  12. Manja December 10, 2011 at 11:28 #

    she looks like a clown.what’s going on with her?! can not recognise her like at all.
