Rose McGowan In Ruffian & Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – Garden Brunch & White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Rose McGowan In Ruffian & Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - Garden Brunch & White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Rose McGowan was in Washington, DC. attending both the 2014 Annual Garden Brunch at the Beall-Washington House and the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3).

Garden Brunch: The actress wore a summery Ruffian white tiered dress styled with a black-and-white oversized Etro clutch and Reed Krakoff shoes. While I like her accessories, I don’t like them with this dress.

White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner: Now this is more like the Rose I know and love. Working a boudoir inspired Ulyana Sergeenko Couture custom gown inspired by the Spring 2014 collection, this gown may not be considered event appropriate, but it is Rose through-and-through. The dual-coloured piece with a champagne coloured bustier and a black draped, central slit train takes me back to a time when she dated Marilyn Manson and risqué gowns were the norm. My only wish is that there wasn’t so much fabric around the waist as it makes her appear wider than she is.

    “‘Cause you had a bad day…”

    The first dress is OK, but the styling is awful.
    The second look is… I just don’t understand the dress.

    The second dress is the most hideous thing I’ve seen in ages! First one is cute but bad shoes.

          Agree – also so inappropriate- what was she thinking????

    The second dress has to be on the WDOTY list. The dress is very ugly and I would think it would be more appropriate for the MTV music/movie awards than the WH Correspondents’ Dinner.

    The second look is actually quite tragic, unfortunately.

    Straight to my WDOTY list. That second look veers wildly off into hoochie land. The gown is tacky and unflattering. The shoes for both looks, ugh. A NO, through and through.

    I can’t think of any event that second dress would be appropriate for.it has to be the ugliest dress I have ever seen

    *sigh* why is it so rare for Ulyana Sergeenko’s designs to translate well onto the red carpet? I love her designs on the runway but sadly nobody has done them justice on the red carpet.
    This is horrible and the shoes don’t help.
    The first look is ok…

    The first look is terrible, the second hideous.

    WDOTY contender.

  10. Tina May 4, 2014 at 16:42 #

    The second look is incredibly unfortunate…WDOTY for me as well.

  11. Courtney Klein May 4, 2014 at 22:02 #

    Bad and worse. WDOTY for sure.

    The top part of that bustier looks like a cheap padded satin bra, I just can’t un-see it.

    That second dress is so inappropriate for a white house dinner. It screams tacky and desperate for attention.

    That second dress is awful, unflattering, and inappropriate. Ugly too.

    The first ensemble is tragic. The second one is catastrophically ugly.

    I just don’t understand…
    What HAPPENED to Rose?
