"American Idol" judge Paula Abdul was met by a swarm of photographers Wednesday afternoon after grabbing a bite to eat with friends at LA's trendy Ivy restaurant in Beverly Hills. The superstar emerged from the restaurant to flashbulbs and a hoard of excited fans. But Paula's fashion choice is what really caught everyone off guard as everyone was focused on her... uh... dress.

You be the judge.
