Pair Division: Foxx and Washington
Boy, you sure can tell no coordinating went on between their two stylists. They don’t even look like they belong in the same hemisphere, let alone the same room.

Scoring these two is going to strain our abilities, since they clearly had vastly different ideas of what this event required of them, but we’ll give it a shot.
HE: Looks fine for Sunday church. This is just a bit too conservative and “Dad” for a photocall, however. He’s not far from Mr. Rogers at this point. We expect a little cat puppet to be sitting on his shoulder. It’s also too blue and needed a contrasting color. Credit for doing the work and attempting to look put together, but at the end of the day, this just isn’t very flattering on him. That sweater is giving the illusion of a gut, which is pretty much the last thing most guys want in their dressing-up outfits. Keep everything and switch out the cardi for a nice tweed jacket. As it is… Score: 6/10. It’s not horrible and he clearly put the effort in. He just needed someone to say the difficult things to him.
She: Looks batshit crazy. We want to applaud batshit crazy in fashion when we can, but this is just an insane Frankendress. She’s got the fashionista cred, but she can’t pull this one off. Honestly, we can’t think of one person who can; not even Blanchett or Swinton. It’s just a ridiculous dress that screams “Fashion Victim.” Sorry, girl. You picked wrong. Score: 3/10. And that’s only because we like the shoes.
Combined Score: 4.5/10. That seems about right. Jaime: get a second opinion next time. Kerry: GIRL. Tone it DOWN.
