Pairs Division: Pitt and Jolie
SHE: Looks funereal as usual, even with a skirt slit to the upper thigh. That skirt is weird; it’s got a somewhat matronly mid-calf length but it’s slit to her nethers. It appears she’s wearing the same top as in the runway look except in black and backwards. We don’t like when someone recreates a runway look exactly, but we would have preferred it over this. White would have broken this up a bit and kept it from look so dour (although it would have taken an officewear turn) and the keyhole looks better on the front. That high neckline does her no favors. This tends to be her thing; covered up in black, with oddly chosen patches of skin. Still, hair and makeup look pretty good and we like the belt. Score: 7/10.
HE: One thing we truly appreciate about Brad Pitt is that you can never accuse him of dressing too young for his age. There are times when we think he goes too far in the opposite direction, though. This outfit would look perfectly presentable on a 70-year-old. We like each individual piece, right down to the shoes. Everything fits him well and flatters him. The pant length is fine because the outfit is casual. What kills us here is sameness of tone. We hate when a man goes out in head to toe black but we’re not sure head to toe beige is an improvement. Every piece looks fine on him but put them all together and he looks like he’s in a retirement community. Score: 6/10.
Combined score: 6.5/10. Considering their names have each become synonymous for “beautiful,” they are a remarkably boring-looking couple. So much potential wasted. You can count on one hand the times they both went out together looking stunning.
