He: Fine. We have no issue with anything going on here. We appreciate the light-colored suit and white shirt, since so many young male stars (and even the older ones) default too much to dark suits and dark shirts. The fit is great, the hair is impeccable and he looks sharp. Could have used a closer shave and maybe a slight adjustment on the hem, but those are quibbles. Score: 9/10

She: Is getting bad advice, it seems. Whoever’s dressing her seems to insist on super-tight dresses. We’ve never seen her in person but all indications are that Reese is teeny-tiny. These tight little dresses are serving to make her look, well, a little dumpy sometimes. It depends of course on the dress, but with the high, pointy, Westwood-esque bustline and the way the skirt falls, this dress is making her look very busty and hippy and as far as we can tell, she’s neither of those things. The color’s great and it fits her (although she’s clearly not taking any deep breaths or putting anything in her mouth while she wears it), but the proportions aren’t as flattering as they could be. The shoes are boring and the hair’s a little honky-tonk. We’d swear she has a scrunchie holding it together. Less volume on the hair and more jewelry next time, Reese. Score: 6/10.

Combined score: 7.5/10 and Patz did all the heavy lifting. Ooooh, Reese is going to have some assistants whipped over this one. Will she be able to continue giving him the full Nancy Reagan adoration look for future premieres and photocalls? Stay tuned!

    He still looks like a washed out druggy. She needs to find a color that works for her. I’m not sure what color that’s meant to be, but it doesn’t flatter her.

  • Judy S

    He:
    … the hair is empeccable and she looks
    sharp.

    ‘Nuff said. You guys need another cup of coffee.

    I like that dress on RW. Yes, it makes her look busty and hippy, so that on her it has more of a retro 50s feel, but I like that. It’s something that’s there in the dress but does not appear when it’s on a giraffe of a model. Agreed that she could use some jewelry but I think she looks charming. Agreed that her next biopic should be Nancy Reagan, though.

  • Kath

    Ugh. Why does he always look like he just rolled out of bed and is trying to wake up? It looks like she’s doing all the heavy lifting here, acting like she actually WANTS to be seen with him.

  • Anonymous

    I love her dress. Why wouldn’t a tiny little girl want to look busty and hippy? :) Not crazy about the hair, but it’s different. He looks very pale.

  • TropiCarla

    Good morning, boys. I love you. For the sake of my OCD – please correct the spelling of ‘impeccable’ and then feel free to delete my comment okay. I love you some more.

    – Bitter Editor Kitten

  • Kaycee

    I like the dress – you say booby and hippy, I say hourglass, which is always an “in.” I agree that the hair looks country – not sophisticated enough for the dress.

    • Kaycee

      Sorry – you actually said busty.

    • just me

      i agree, i think you guys are off on this one, the dress gives her a great hourglass figure. the only thing i don’t like are the little flaps under her arms… i’m not sure what they are but they look odd.

      • jessamyn

        Exactly what I was thinking – what’s wrong with bust and hips, when they look as smooth and curvy as they do here? It’s not “fashiony” – i.e. the fabric-flapping-on-a-wire-hanger-with-a-head look that runway models usually sport – but she’s not trying to look like a model, she’s trying to look like a beautiful woman.

      • cole

        Agreed, the dress is clearly going for some kind of budding flower look, but it just doesn’t work on her (or anyone with a non-anorexic bust). Personally i think it would have looked much better with a more traditional neckline. Ditch the Dolly Parton ‘do and it’d be perfect.

        Pattinson is repellant as always. He has an incredible ability to make even the nicest suits look like he just rolled out of a dumpster.

  • Guestier

    She looks pregnant to me, like she’s in that early stage where your hips widen and your boobs get bigger but you don’t have a bump yet. Though if she is, her stylists get a big F for not dressing her to downplay that.

    • Miss Heather

      I agree.

      Also, RPatt is REPULSIVE.

      • Momzilla

        He always looks greasy and dirty, even when he is wearing a beautiful suit, as he is here. “Comb your hair, really shave and get somebody to go after your eyebrows.”

  • http://profiles.google.com/commentmonkey Comment Monkey

    If that’s what busty & hippy looks like, then sign me up for looking like that.

    • ILoveFL

      No kidding! I’ll take looking like that in that dress any day!

  • Drdirection

    I don’t think the shape or the color of that dress is particularly flattering on her. It doesn’t look any better on the model though.

  • ask

    I agree with Liz about him.

    I think Reese looks great, in fact kind of hot. *I could do without the adoring looks though.

  • Wnsu

    They look so pained together…. he always looks stoned…. minus 3 for that! Can’t stand him. Love her. Even in that dress.

  • Judy_J

    Pattinson just continues to creep me out. He always looks like he needs a bath. I’m not crazy about this dress on Reese. The proportions are off…I think she’s just a bit too short for this look. Color is great, though.

    • Badriyadances

      I agree about the proportions–it looks like the skirt portion of the dress was hemmed for her, but really extra length should have come out of the bustier portion somehow to keep the proportions intact.

      • Catlover2x

        Exactly what I was going to say. That’s where the dumpy comes in. Models have long limbs and the skirt length was elegant on the model. You can’t simply hack off a couple of inches and hope for the best, although they probably hacked a foot off for her. It’s like buying skinny jeans that are too long. You hem those puppies up and you end up with sad looking tapered slacks from the 60s.

    • ask

      I say that about Russell Brand. but got in trouble :o( so are we allowed to make that comment or not

  • Anonymous

    I agree on all points. That man knows how to put on a suit (or he has a great gay telling him what to do and he listens). Don’t like her hair and that dress does her figure no favors.

  • Callie

    Respectfully disagree with you guys! She looks va-va-va-voom and he looks womp-womp-womp. The suit color and jacket fit are good, but considering how much you focus on hem length, I’m surprised that this wouldn’t set you off. She’s giving face like there’s no tomorrow and her hair at least looks pulled together (I love me some big hair, so I don’t find the style offensive) and he looks like he just rolled onto the red carpet and is thinking “where am I? who am I? Why is this movie star on my arm?!”

  • TropiCarla

    Good morning, boys. I love you even more. You are the best ‘Blog Daddies’ a girl could ever hope for. ;-)
    Having spent all of my teens and twenties longing for an hourglass figure, I would snatch up this dress in a heartbeat. Reese’s styling team really does need to do a better job on the fit and hair though, as I can see no damn reason for her Carrie Underwood impression. As for Pattinson – I just can’t. He always looks like death warmed over to me … ugh.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RK5MAF2VNT32ULNYFIXDANTEC4 Terence

    After the dress two dresses before, I thought your advice was that she go back to form fitting dresses…

  • Stephie-girl

    I think she looks great! It gives her a wonderful curvy figure. I think this fits her much better than the last one you guys liked on her.

  • MilaXX

    The movie looks all kinds of bad and as much as I hate to admit it Robert is doing all the heavy lifting in this press junket. She has been in one bad dress after another. The looks haven’t been completely awful, just not great. I’m hating that so many are strapless.Try as he might, he still looks dirty to me. Him 8/10, Her 6/10

  • missy

    Whats struck me about the pairs division posts on these two is the fake smile she has plastered on. The weird fit on the bust is making her boobs look unnecessarily huge.

  • Tulip

    I think she looks wonderful, very curvy as other posters have said.

  • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.parker Sara Parker

    I like her makeup, at least.

  • mjude

    i really dont care for her dress.

  • Kitty13_x

    I like the dress on her – yes, she looks almost pneumatically busty/hippy, but it still emphasises the tiny waist, so she doesn’t look big. Just gorgeously curved into it. I agree with the poor hair/accessories choices though. Also, she will get a crick in her neck if she keeps trying to gaze up at that smelly hobo.

    • Cheryl Colehour

      I’ve said mean things about Robert Pattinson before, but I have reformed. Even so, “a crick in her neck if she keeps trying to gaze up a that smelly hobo” really made me laugh.

  • Anonymous

    I really like the light suit and if I don’t look at his face he looks terrific. 8/10

    Her dress is okay, but she could use some accessories. 7/10

  • Patricia

    I think he looks great! He has picked (or SOMEONE has picked) some great suits, consistently. He should get more credit for being adventurous. He chose maroon, a plaid, blue, this lovely light grey….

  • Flblom

    Hate the hair, hate the dress on her. Out Out Out

  • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

    Thank goodness she isn’t wearing navy tights.
    And thank you, TLo, for your continued coverage of this couple. They are so endlessly entertaining. They deserve awards for this shit.

  • Anonymous

    Her dress isn’t bad–not sure I like the pointed boob-tops, but otherwise not bad. Is “busty” a bad thing? Oh, dear! Shoot, I knew I shouldn’t have done all that “I must, I must, I must increase my bust!” chanting in junior high. ;p

    I actually do like the fact that this dress exaggerates her curves a little. Just a little more of a zhoozh and we can get into Marilyn territory.

    “Needs a shave” drops Patz down a few points though.

  • Anonymous

    I actually like that dress on her, and I’m not usually a fan of strapless with wings. The color is very pretty and unusual (at least unusual on the red carpet). i think if her hair were styled better and she had better (or more) accessories, she would have nailed it. I’d bump her up to at least a 7 out of 10.

    Agree with your Pattinson score. That suit is killer.

  • Anonymous

    They both look good. Although I agree that her dress is too small.

  • Anonymous

    I too have to respectfully disagree. I think she looks lovely in the dress, and busty and hippy are not crimes, much as the fashion industry would like us to think think they are.

    I also disagree about him. That stark white shirt doesn’t suit the reddish tones of his complexion and hair in the slightest and is making him look even paler and more drugged out than usual. Bright white is a very difficult colour for most people to wear next to the face. He would look so much better if the shirt was ivory or grey, but would probably have to change the suit colour up as well.

  • confused kitten

    Ugh, Hollywood. Get over your fixation with toothpicks. Some women have tits and an ass and hips, and if Reese wants to show them off (or exaggerate, idk), deal with it.

    He constantly looks like he crawled out of a bong after a 3-day frat party bender. So gross.

  • http://twitter.com/REmoDENA Modena Get scared

    Walk gently on this planet as if to leave no mark with your feet. Be remembered for your deeds, your compassion, spreading joy and love.

  • Lulu

    I think that’s a great little dress, but I agree that it would look better if she could actually breathe in it. I don’t know if it’s just my monitor, but the color looks different from the the runway version. Hers looks teal, which I don’t think suits her as well as the deeper blue of the runway version would have. Agree on the honky tonk hair, lolol.

    I like what he’s wearing and I like his hair, but he always looks stoned to me. Could he please just go away now?

  • Mariah

    I think she looks good, being busty and hippy with a tiny waist was a good thing I thought?

  • dee

    What’s the problem with looking busty or hippy? Doesn’t that equal hourglass? I think this is the best she’s looked since the yellow dress from years ago. And I’m sorry, RPatz is just unattractive and I’m so confused as to how people truly believe he’s sexy.

  • Shannon

    I have to say, I’m so sick of this look on her. We think Aniston’s in a style rut? Reese wears strapless little solid color dresses with peep toe heels to every event she goes to. When she pulled out that great canary dress with the red heels years ago, it was an amazing look that re-vamped her image. But now she needs another revamp. (

    I think she looks fantastic.

  • hmship

    She seems to have exactly one pose: hands on hips and legs crossed. It’s getting really old. I’ve decided that she is really just a refrigerator magnet with different dress options.

  • Jill

    I think he looks fantastic. That is a great suit. He looks like he could use a full night’s sleep, though.

  • Etodd1998

    I would like the dress better if she were taller….love the color though…and I like the honky tonk hair….I am really in the minority here as I think he looks great and I think he is very, very attractive…I must have a thing for underage stoners……

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    Other than fabulous hair, I just don’t get all that adoration for RPatz. He looks boring. (Going into hiding now.)

  • jeneria

    I just think he’s so gross. I don’t get the attraction at all. And he’s an abysmal actor to boot. Here I don’t have a lot of problems with although she’s a bit too precious lately.

  • Long Island

    Reese looks a hell of a lot better than Katie Holmes did it that black thing with the hair ribbon tied around her waiste and you gave Katie a 7. So by using the Katie Holmes rubric I would have given Reese at least a 7.5. I am not blown away by the dress but Reese does look put together … nice hair and make-up. I do wish she would wear jewelry.

  • C.Jean

    That neckline perfectly echoes the sharp contour of her chin. And I don’t know if that’s what you should be going for when you dress! A great necklace would help.

  • Jules

    I think she looks gorgeous, minus the hair. Busty and hippy are positives, in my book.

  • Anonymous

    He starts at 9/10 but I am indulging my prejudices and taking off a full point for the stubble. I wish that look would be over as a trend – fine with casual looks but NOT when you’re dressed to the nines and have taken care of every other detail. So, 8/10.

    I’m starting her out a tad higher than you guys – I think she looks curvy in a good way, not dumpy. She’ll never radiate sex appeal in my opinion, but at least when she shows/exaggerates her curves she doesn’t look like strangely asexual, which she sometimes does, to me. Don’t love the points over the bust and the lack of accessories underwhelm (-1) and the hair is awful. It doesn’t flatter her face and it looks too casual. (-1) Take off another .5 just because the overall impression is less than the sum of the parts. So, 7.5/10

    Combined score: 7.75/10. He edged her out, but he’d have had a commanding lead if I weren’t so over the stubble look.

  • andyleigh

    Okay, I think the dress isn’t as bad as TLo thinks it is. My one issue is that for some reason it makes her look like her left boob is much larger than her right boob. And it’s the cut of the dress that’s doing it, it’s not her boobs. But other than that I think it’s cute.

    I find RPatt to be repulsive. I don’t get why teenagers go all jello-kneed at the sight of him. He’s just unattractive. He’s pale, he looks greasy and he looks stoned all the time. You can put a nice suit on him, but that doesn’t fix what ails him. Ugh.

  • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

    Reese is pretty famous for her hourglass shape and commitment to not starving herself, so looking like she has a bust and hips isn’t exactly shocking. She doesn’t so much look ‘hippy’ as she looks ‘female’.

  • Auntie Kathy

    That dress looks like it had been recycled from a 60s era Batman episode. Didn’t Poison Ivy wear that?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    The dress is too tight across the thighs, yet again. And the bust area looks like rabbit ears, and all this in one boring color. *Sigh*

  • Opinionated

    nah. I’d have said he looks like he’s stoned out of his mind. And needs a shave. And his hair combed. She looks OK–not great but OK. I think she may be trying to look “curvy” rather than teeny-tiny. Patz: 4/10 Reese: 8/10. Combined score: 6.0

    Curls were definitely not the way to go with the hair here – honky tonk is right! She always needs a little edge to contrast with her naturally “cute” look.

    She doesn’t look like she hates him too much in these photos. Normally she looks like she’s about to bolt, but here, she just looks moderately repulsed by him. And who could blame her? (Twi-hards don’t count) There is something about him that disturbs. And I agree, that color just doesn’t work. The upper-body carapace doesn’t either.
