Fashion consultant and magazine editor George Kotsiopoulos ended in hot water after taking his criticism of Elsa Pataky’s Oscar ensemble a bit too far.

As a commentator on E!’s Fashion Police, he said about Elsa: “The last thing I want to do is rip on a pregnant woman. That doesn’t look like a baby bump. It looks like a beer belly!”

The Spanish model, actress, and film producer is pregnant with twins, and by the size of her stomach, we expect that she’ll give birth very soon. Elsa is married to Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, with whom she already has one daughter.

To the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday, the 37-year-old actress donned a sparkling Elie Saab gown styled with Graziela Gems earrings, a Judith Leiber bag, a Dana Rebecca Designs bracelet, and a vintage Broken English ring.

Do you think George Kotsiopoulos was out of line in his criticism of Elsa? Should she have worn a different dress?

“It’s just not the appropriate dress to wear if you are pregnant. You have to go with an empire style, or just dress like Olivia Wilde,” Kelly Osbourne said of the fellow pregnant star.

“. . . Beautiful baby bump, but beautiful in a different dress,” Giuliana Rancic added. “I have to say, pregnant or not, I just don’t like this dress.”
