“Friends with Benefits” apparently is code for “Friends who have no sense of style.”
Having screwed the pooch (stylistically speaking) while in Cancun, Mila and Justin get let out of their cages one more time to see if they can get it right in New York. They didn’t.
SHE: Is wearing a way-too “look at my butt” dress for a movie premiere. And the only really interesting thing about the dress as it was originally styled was that belt. Take that away and it’s just another ruched dress, only this time with the extra added bonus of an unflattering hem length. Also, adjusting the neckline so it angles up toward her shoulders is slightly aging to the look, especially when combined with the below-the-knee hem. She doesn’t look horrible, but she’s looked so much better before. Score: 6/10. Mostly due to wasted potential.
HE: Deserves no more of our time until her gets a good 4 inches taken off the bottom of his pants. We can see nothing else. Score: 3/10. Enough.
Combined score: 4.5/10. Man, are these two a bad match or what? It’s like merely being in the other’s presence causes them to wear shitty clothes. Come on, you two. It’s the NYC premiere of your rom-com. Don’t show up like you’re attending a college friend’s summer wedding. You’re young, thin, rich, and you get free clothes. Time to start looking like it.
