Pairs Division: McDonell and Teegarden
wears a Pamela Rolland gown, Casadei heels, Judith Leiber clutch, and Neil Lane jewelry.
No, we don’t know who they are either, but they’re young and they’ve got a movie out and they’re fresh red carpet meat, so let’s break them in, kittens.
She: Honestly, not a whole lot to critique here. She looks fresh and glamorous and she smartly avoided anything too out-there or trendy; choosing instead to go old-school glam. The dress isn’t earth-shattering in any way, but it’s glittery and it fits her well. Hair and makeup look cute and appropriate. The only thing we’re going to criticize is the one part of her outfit you can’t see in these pictures: the shoes. In the large full length shot, she’s stepping forward and you can tell through the dress that she’s wearing a pair of gigantic platform pumps. Honey, no. You were doing so well, but you can’t put big, clunky, ass-kicking shoes under a gown. They’re for pants or miniskirts. Score: 9/10.
He: Look, it’s not his fault the world has conspired so that she had to spend 4 hours getting ready for this event and he only had to spend 20 minutes. It’s not his fault we’ve accepted tee shirts with suit jackets as acceptable wear for men when women are wearing gowns. What IS his fault is the Michael Jackson hair, which we simply cannot get behind in any way. The jacket looks fine, although we’re shaving off pointage both for the flimsy-looking tee and the cheap-looking shoes. Plus, we tend to think for an event like this you can get away with a tee shirt and a suit, but you can’t get away with a tee-shirt, sportscoat and skinny jeans. It’s just too casual. Score: 7/10.
Combined score: 8/10, which is surprisingly high considering how generic they look. Once again, the lady is carrying the heavy load.
