Pairs Division: Smith and Pinkett-Smith
The Bitter Kittens thought we scored these two a little high yesterday, and in retrospect maybe we did, but sometimes overall impact trumps issues of detailing and we continue to be impressed by their commitment to dressing like goddamn movie stars. A lot of celebrity couples don’t make nearly the effort.
Which is a way of letting you know now that, yes, we’re about to score them high despite some fit issues and not-great accessories.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith attend the premiere of “Men in Black 3″ in Tokyo. Jada Pinkett-Smith wore a Alberta Ferretti white gown with geometric cut out and nude underlay from the Spring 2012 collection.

HE: Is KILLING us here, because he’s rocking these insanely chic and fabulous plaid suits, which we can only hope will spur a trend of thousands of men trying the same thing, thereby making the world more interesting to look at, but he’s fumbling the message because they don’t fit him as well as they should. This isn’t nearly as bad as the one we showed yesterday, though. Also, while the tie is perfectly integrated and we’re not saying we don’t like it, we think something with some slight contrast would have looked better. Still, you can color us pretty impressed with the overall effort. He’s always been a sharp dresser, but we’re really loving what he’s been breaking out for this press tour. Just get them fitted a little better, Will. Score: 9/10.
SHE: Looks MUCH better in this than those glittery pajamas. We’d go so far as to say she’s serving it up and by “it,” we mean a big ol’ plate of fierce. Our only issue is that the bottom of the bust is pulling in a way that doesn’t look deliberate. The purse is boring and the shoes are a little heavy-looking, but strangely enough, we love the hair. We usually hate that one-shoulder mermaid style (just ask Eva Green), but she’s got an angular face, and the asymmetrical waves really suit it. In one shot it looks like she’s sporting a lining on the hip and in another it doesn’t, so we can’t speak as to whether she’s wearing underwear or not, which, we suppose may have been the point. Score: 9/10.
Combined Score: 9/10. It’s true once again that there are issues with the detailing, but you can’t really say they’re not making an impact, nor can you say that they’re not putting the effort in. Compare the fierceness on display here to the average Pitt-Jolie or Cruise-Holmes appearance. As celebrity couples go, these two are at the front of the race when it comes to Hollywood glamour.
