Jennifer Love Hewitt In Paule Ka – Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala

Jennifer Love Hewitt would’ve turned a few heads at the Art Of Elysium “Heaven” Gala in LA last night.

Call me crazy, but there is something about her Paula Ka Black Carpet Collection gown that I actually like.

Her black strapless gown with an exaggerated white bow detail does look like the model is about to give birth to 10lbs of white satin, but it’s something different and unpredictable from Jennifer.

It not safe and boring like most of her usual red carpet looks.

The look was complete with a chic updo and a Kelly Locke ‘Mimi’ clutch.

    It’s weird but I kind of like this look. Daring choice and her makeup and hair are gorgeous

    The bust is too small. I applaud her for taking some risks, but I absolutely hate this dress on her. She’s too short.

    I almost like it for not being boring, but the boobs and saggy satin are just too much here.

    This is exactly what you should do with clothes, have fun!

    Just say no to oversized bows on your stomach ladies.

    I like Jennifer Love Hewitt because I grew up with her and she has a girl-0next-door aurora that is nice, but she is no a fashion icon and that is okay. She looks fab here and she never looks controlled by a stylist. This is unusual so she get’s points form me.

    Ill fitted — her boobs are spilling out.

    I like it, too! I’m also surprised that it looked so good on a small person like her. She clearly pulled it off.

    One of those dresses that makes you go hummmm – I don’t hate it, I just don’t think she carries it quite off…..still, I’m entertained as opposed to repulsed.

    I don’t know why but I LOVE this. She’s glowing + the hair and make-up are perfect.

    She also looked good at the BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party.

    I really hope she continues the good run at the GG.

    The model may be giving birth to 10lbs of white satin but I think Jennifer’s having twins. 😉

      lol 😉

  14. GirlOne January 16, 2011 at 3:57 pm #

    Eh… no. Sorry, Jennifer!

    • Kathy January 16, 2011 at 7:06 pm #

      OMFG Jennifer! that’s what you mean! haha
      she’s done better before..

    I applaud her bold choice, but the result is just too weird.
    The bow seems limp and sad, especially after the top part apparently passed away.
    It makes the whole look seem heavy and more ridiculous than it already was to begin with.

  16. Lee Ann January 16, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    There is something I like about it too but I would never where it.

    • Linda January 16, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

      Exactly what I was thinking. The concept is good, but the white bows folded down like that throw it off.

    • Lee Ann January 16, 2011 at 3:47 pm #

      I mean wear it

  17. summer January 16, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    you’re crazy :DDD
    ı dont like,ı think this dress like a joke

  18. Anita January 16, 2011 at 3:09 pm #

    I almost like this look – its not boring for a b&w. But I think I would have loved it if there was just 1 asymmetrical bow like how it looks on the model.

  19. LizLemooooon January 16, 2011 at 3:09 pm #

    Yeah I agree, it’s a great look for her and I’m so glad she showed restraint hair, make up and accessories wise. Her boobs are very distracting tho but she does look good. I’m impressed!

  20. Shaina January 16, 2011 at 3:09 pm #

    I feel the same way, a part of me likes it but there’s still that part of me that wonders what made her wear something like this.

  21. Nikki January 16, 2011 at 3:06 pm #

    I’ve always thought that Paule Ka’s designs were a bit on the quirky side. I tried to like this looks but I just can’t. I can appreciate uniqueness but wearing this gown doesn’t do anything at all for her. It’s like a reverse kimono with an oversized bow…or it looks like she has a folded table cloth that’s hanging from her dress.

    • Gamine January 16, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

      Yep, looks like a waitress getting ready to set up tables with 2 tablecloths under her belt.
      Love big bows, but this one is not doing it for me.

    Call me whatever u want, but she looks gorgeous! The smile, the sassy and different!
