Would You Wear Emmy Rossum's Crystal-Studded Makeup?

01/22/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Emmy Rossum is usually the picture of polished, slightly conservative good taste, so we had to look twice to make sure this was her. Emmy attended a Swarovski event at the Metropolitan Opera House in a suitably elegant Georges Chakra dress and Rickard Shah pumps, but her crystal-studded smoky eyes are what really got our attention. We’re all for a little glitter, but four different colors of Swarovski crystals glued to her eyes reminds us a little too much of 80’s club kids or drag queens to be worn out in real life. And how exactly do you remove those sparkles when you get home at night? Tell us: What do you think of Emmy’s makeup? Would you wear this look?

Holy moley! What did the girl do to herself? I saw this picture from a full body view, not a close up and though it looked fine. But this picture is just dreadful…for anyone!

Seriously? NO

She’s a very pretty girl. The look reminds me of a ballerina up close after a performance of the Nutcracker. It looks whimsicle and sugar plum fairy-like. If she toned it down quite then it could have looked quite lovely. Glitter can be fun and pretty, but it’s a less is more kind of thing!

make ups applied badly but with the right makeup application this could of looked amazing.
maybe next time she should hire a better make up artist

Yikes! Now THAT is the definition of raccoon eyes and what happens when you overdose on makeup.

Meg on

Ahhh, she looks about 30 years older. Why not just accessorize with some beautiful jewelry or something in her hair (a la Hilary Swank)? She’s looking a little drag queen-y here.

Only if I were a caberet performer…

umm…no. maybe the concept was a good one, but she went too over the top w/it. i’m sure this didn’t look good close up or far away. maybe if she was on stage or going to a costume party–not a gala at an opera house–swarovski sponsored or not!

Alice on

Its probably one of those things that looks better far away. But of course, People has to find the worse looking picture for everyone to tear apart.

C on

Looks very uncomfortable. I guess the look was suitable for the event, but looks a little like she belongs in the Ice Capades.
