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

Her bangs are ugly, she looks old-and the trashbag look isn’t helping matters.

The white Catherine Malandrino is more appropriate for daytime – love it! It’s a very fun, summery dress. The black jeweled Colette Dinnigan tent dress is more fitting for evening – also love it! It shows off Kate Walsh’s arms and legs quite well – it doesn’t always have to be cleavage. I absolutely love the jeweled neckline, which looks good as she wore it – without loads of jewelry, just earrings… and her engagement ring. I think both dresses are sexy in different ways. Besides, not every woman has a shape that would be flattered by dresses that are more fitted.
Kate Walsh is on the ABC television show “Grey’s Anatomy”, which had it’s 3rd season finale Thursday May 17. In the fall she will be on her own show, a spin-off called “Private Practice”, which will be on Wednesdays at 9 PM. She was also in “Under the Tuscan Sun” [2003 film with Diane Lane] where she played Sandra Oh’s girlfriend/partner. [Sandra Oh is also on “Grey’s Anatomy.]

I think she looks the best in the tent dress. She looks fine in the white one, i just think the black suits her better.
