Malin Akerman In Cushnie Et Ochs – 2014 People’s Choice Awards

Malin Akerman In Cushnie Et Ochs Spring 2014

Malin Akerman was also in the star-studded mix at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards, held on Wednesday (January 8) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California.

The actress selected a Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 black-and-white dress for the occasion, which naturally featured the label’s signature sexy cutouts.

I wasn’t a fan of this particular interpretation of the skin-baring bodice detail, though, as it translated as a bit overexposed—even when juxtaposed with her centre-parted, platinum-blonde ringlets.

However, the frock’s scribble- and doodle-print was undeniably a lighthearted, fun one for the evening.

She styled the look with a black clutch and vampy black, ankle-strap pumps and a smattering of Stephen Webster jewels.

    Malin should have that dress custom outfitted just so a bit more of her chest is covered. It could have been a really great, sexy look, but it just telegraphs too trashy instead.

  • gabis

    I can only join the chorus: fantastic on the runway, tacky on Malin. This dress definitely was not designed for women with a lot of boobage going on.
    It would look just perfect though on someone like Karlie Kloss.

  • dee

    This is horrendous.

  • Jones19

    Malin doesn’t seem to be aware that she has grown boobs since getting pregnant…oh well.

  • Jess2

    I liked this on the runway but it is not working for Malin, particularly in the chest area. Not flattering at all.

  • Caroline®

    Three words: too much cleavage.

  • Joy

    This is horrible! Why in the world did she modify the dress’ cutout? And if she didn’t, then obviously it isn’t the dress for her well endowed chest.

    • Nadine

      +1

  • AG

    On the runway, it’s such a cool dress! Sadly Malin’s a little too well endowed in the chest department to steer this look away from being tacky. Such a shame!

  • Yeliz

    This dress looks SO much better on the runway. I really dislike Malin’s look.

  • kane

    Looks good on the runway, but with the addition of boobage it’s just so, so tacky.

  • Alina

    The dress is so wrong for her.

  • Valissa

    This is the perfect example of a great runway dress gone horribly wrong on the red carpet! Just no…

  • Dhppy

    Well, my Worst Dressed of the Year list has officially started.

  • Anj

    So close yet so far (literally) away! Whoever let her out of the house like this should be fired. Or the mirror, I can’t choose. This dress deserves to be worn, just on someone with a smaller chest. I also dislike the shoes.

  • Alex V

    Can’t decide between tacky and gross

    • Serenity

      I’m going with god-awful.

  • Alex

    You have to be pretty flat chested to get away with this dress.

  • Nat39

    The boob window is horrendous on Malin, can’t look past it.

  • Malinda Jane

    Wow. I really dislike this. Tacky, too much boobage. It looks like her chest ripped through the seams of the dress or something…
    Horrible.

    • Katey

      agree. I can’t see anything but her boobs and it’s weird. It’s simply just too much.

      • CTgirl

        As a chick with a chest, I am always aware that there are certain looks that are a “no” for me and my busty brethren. The is the biggest “no” so far this year.

  • THis is the most gratuitous and desperate attempt to get people to talk about you I’ve seen on the red carpet in a while. But hey, it got what she wanted – people talking. I’d be curious to know Cushnie et Ochs reaction to this…as they clearly designed that dress for a very flat-chested woman and not to be so revealing. Wow…wow.

  • Christine

    It looks semi tacky on Malin. Where on the runway it looks so badass.

    • Christine

      Which proves that girls with boobies will not look right in this dress, sadly.

      • Tea

        Yes, not for anyone who’s not very flat chested. Add in poor posture, a fake looking tan and a rather straight up and down figure and this is horrifyingly far from the runway look.

        Also the cutout does look like it has been widened *yikes* for Malin – it’s much more U shaped compared with the narrower V on the runway model. I wonder who made that decision?
