Even Kate Walsh Looks Unsexy In a Tent Dress

05/16/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

I love wearing tent dresses — they’re comfortable, easy and mask a post-meal tummy. But looking at the ever-lovely Kate Walsh in her two dresses from yesterday, I am thinking of pushing mine to the back of the closet. The newly-engaged star hit the ABC Upfronts yesterday in a fitted white Catherine Malandrino halter dress that really showed off her enviable shape, only to change into a sack-like satin Colette Dinnigan dress for the Entertainment Weekly party later that night. One day, two dresses — and a world of difference! Where did her little waist go? Her fantastic cleavage? Tent dresses may be comfy, but sexy they are not. Tell us: Are you ready to embrace fitted shapes for summer? Which dress do you like better on Kate? Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Who is this woman??? I guess I don’t go to the movies enough or watch enough TV. I keep seeing her EVERYWHERE! The dresses are both very pretty. I think I like the tent better.

i think she looks great in both. someone heavier couldn’t pull off the tent dress as well. i don’t think she looks her age, either.

I think that both dresses look great on her and I agree with Sara B, that sexy is about attitude and presence, not so much what you’re wearing and what you’re showing. Sexy is also covering it up and leaving something to the imagination. P.S….I hear this sentiment from ALOT of my guy friends.

I’m with Summer. Who is this person? She looks like Kathy Griffin in a bizarre way. Yeah, the tent is better.

She definately looks better in the white dress, but the other dress doesn’t look bad. In my opinion it would make a nicer top than a dress. She could wear in with jeans or leggings under it…

i like the tent dress the best; her legs look great. i’m not a fan of the white dress, but i like her hair down in that picture. i’ve never watched the show she’s on, but i do keep up with the gossip and apparently she’s getting her own spinoff, so that’s why she’s all over the news lately.

Kate Walsh is a doctor on Grey’s Anatomy and is soon to have her own spin-off called Private Practice. If you are unfamiliar with the show, you probably wouldn’t know much about her.

Brenda G. on

I’m fascinated that so many of your readers think she looks good in both. I think she looks great in the white and pregnant in the black. Personally, if I were trying to look hot, I’d eighty-six the tent dresses (unless I’d just over-indulged in a truly fantastic meal!)

I dont like it her head is starting to look like Star Jones’.

Kate on

Kate Walsh is gorgeous, but she got super skinny. Her head looks too big for her body now
