Pairs Division: Jolie and Pitt

Posted on August 01, 2011

NEWSFLASH: Two genetically superior superstars continue to pretend like they’re not.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attend the closing ceremony of the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival. Angelina Jolie is wearing an Elie Saab dress.

Elie Saab Spring 2011 Collection/Model: Constance Jablonski (ELITE)

They’re looking a little haggard there, kittens. One of them needs some nutritional support and the other one needs moisturizer and a shave. We’ll let you guess which one’s which.

HE: Needs to seriously reconsider the hair. There was a time, ten years ago, when he would have looked pretty stunning rocking hair like this. But that time is gone, Brad. The beard needs shaving, the hair needs a trim and the shoes need to GO. The suit is actually quite nice. And because we’re thrilled that he did the two most important things when posing without a tie: he made sure his shirt collar was standing up and he buttoned his jacket – we’re inclined to forget the mistakes happening above the neck. Score: 7/10.

SHE: Is wearing a color, and that just might mean that the sky will open up and fire will rain down from the heavens. It’s not a vibrant, memorable, or head-turning color – it’s not even a color that suits her that well – so we’re probably safe for now. The dress is pretty, if a little plain. Very much in the Jolie wheelhouse. The big sash around her waist gives it a bit too much of a bathrobe feel, however. The makeup is low-key, but the hair is too low-key. A little something-something there might have bumped up the look considerably. The shoes are standard stylist-issued and the jewelry is mostly non-existent. Like him, she looks good, but not great.  Score: 7.5/10.

Combined score: 7.25/10. They’re both wearing decent enough garments but only look okay, all things considered. This is a couple who could both look stunning with very little effort and yet they persist on looking slightly better than average most of the time they step out. Tsk. You have wasted your genetic material as well as whatever money y’all paid to surgically enhance it, Brad & Angie. T Lo does NOT approve.

      Are they matching their hair colors now?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MNMVM2GPVUEIOJXBOSLCXKAW4U judy brown

        Maybe, but neither bothered to wash their hair for this occasion.

        She could also use a sandwhich, and he could use a shave.

      How is she even standing up? She can’t be eating more than 100 calories a day.

        Her skin looks waxy.

        She’s eating WAY more than 100 calories a day — in fact, I’d guess she’s eating a fairly normal low-calorie diet.  My guess is that she’s someone who turns to bone when she’s not working out rather than someone who turns to fat.  I know several of those people; the only way they can look good is to work out enough to build muscle because they don’t build fat.

        • http://profiles.google.com/thisiscelia Celia

          Yeah, I tend to defend her weight too, though I think she could stand to put some more food in her–especially as she ages. Even if you go back to her early years she’s always had really skinny limbs. It seems like she has that kind of a frame.

      I read today that she doesn’t have an agent or a publicist, so I wonder if she actually has a stylist.  And is he in the middle of a role (and therefore needs to have the hair beard-like substance)?  This was a quick day trip to the festival, for which I suspect the festival promoters were so happy, they didn’t care if she did wear a bathrobe!  I mean, who even knew that Sarajevo had a film festival!

      • http://verenahafner.wordpress.com/ Verena

        She does have a stylist: Jennifer Rade.

          Thanks.  So you are a stylist, do you think that she takes much in the way of advice from her stylist, or do you think that her stylist is pretty much just the person who facilitates the dress loans?

          • http://verenahafner.wordpress.com/ Verena

            I think they’ve been working together for ages and Rade has a very good
            understanding of the Jolie’s taste. If there ever was advice involved,
            it must have been at the very beginning. Now I feel Rade only pulls what
            she knows Jolie will like and that’s it. Sounds like easy money to me!

            Also, let’s not forget the strategic, image-making aspect of dressing in Hollywood. The way she dresses says she has other things to worry about (kids, refugees…).

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              You know though, if you look back, her style hasn’t really changed all THAT much — it’s grown up and lost a lot of the emo edge, but it’s still very recognizable as her taste.  And that was long before she started with all the charity work and building her family.  I’m sure there is some image-making going on (there ALWAYS is) but it’s subtle and well-handled and very much within her wheelhouse anyway.

        Brad is in a middle of shooting a film (called World War Z). And Sarajevo’s festival is one of the best in Europe.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_35OW6VJZLWTQDQHS4JLRTVC2JA Akumabunny

      Agree with all your comments, but will say that Brad’s hair & stubble are for the movie he is currently filming.  No excuse for those ratty shoes, however.

      I should only look haggard like she does. 
      Oh, well. I like the dress. I think she doesn’t do flashy. We’ll just have to accept it.
      Totally agree about his look, though. I’m sure somebody will post that it’s for a movie, but I don’t care. Shave and a haircut, man. 

    • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

      Brad’s face has always been his bread and butter, so even if the suit is nice enough, his face looks absolutely wrecked.  And that makes me very sad.  No more than a 5 out of 10 for him.  Especially since a decent hair cut and shave would have made him look like, well, Brad Pitt.

      Although, I will give him credit for aging naturally.  It has to take a good amount of self-possession to accept the aging process when the better part of the last 20 years has been about him being the prettiest boy in the room.  I find him a boring actor but an interesting person.

      • MilaXX

        See I don’t think he’s aging gracefully. I think he’s aging lazily. It’s like he decided to enter the I don’t give a damn stage, 20 years early. As if it was be a family man or the cute guy, but not both. He can forgo plastic surgery, but that doesn’t excuse hair needing to be cut/combed or shoes needing a polish.

        • http://visceralresponse.com Dina dV

          That’s why I said “naturally.”  His face is his face, and now that the crags and sags have shown up, he’s not fighting it.  Which just makes him less likely to start looking like an old woman or worse, Bruce Jenner, as he continues to age.  Better to have your natural wrinkles than whatever Bruce has going on.

          He could definitely use some good product for that hair, though.

          • MilaXX

            I guess my nit pick is he seems to be missing the fine line between aging gracefully and Bruce Jenner craziness. I’m all for no or more careful than Bruce plastic surgery, but he looks like he can hardly be bothered these days and borderline dirty others.

            • Anonymous

              I think he wants to seem like Jeff Bridges. So that’s a version of Bruce Jenner craziness.

      • Anonymous

        I think he’s aging naturally NOW, by which I mean there were a few years there where he was as botoxed as any Real Housewife, and was verging on the Nicole Kidman boiled egg look. I think he realized he was looking creepier rather than younger, so we’re just noticing that he’s aged more now that he’s stopped all that.

        • Anonymous

          Yes! He was clearly still in the Botox phase while filming Moneyball, he looks like an animated wax figure in the trailer. Creepy.

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        I think it really depends on the actor.  There are several actors who have spoken about being THRILLED to age enough to be more than a face.  Robert Redford is one of the most well-known, as well as Daniel Day Lewis and Harrison Ford.  I think it’s easier for men than women.  Men would rather be taken seriously, while women want to be both serious AND gorgeous.

        Right? like, could you not bear to accessorize a little? 

        I think your score is too high. If you read the text before, you’d think they got a generous 6 each. 

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          She’s never used a lot of accessories.  She seemed to decide very early on to make her face the focal point of every look (which I certainly would too if I had that face)

            A fellow Kristofferson fan.  We’re not nearly as small a group as I once thought.  I first swooned over him when I saw him on The Muppet Show of all things but the more I learned about him the deeper my appreciation.  He’s a renaissance man in the truest meaning: an athlete, a scholar, an artist, a poet, a pilot.

            And, really, the only person awesome enough to play Kris Kristofferson is Kris Kristofferson.

      He doesn’t look bad, considering it’s for a role.

      She however, looks terrible.  Too thin, too tired, and I – for one – do not like that dress, period.  And it looks too big for her.

      However, I can understand her looking haggard.  Yes they have nanny’s, but they also have 6 kids!

      Please, Those are some inflated scores.
      He looks no better than Timberlake did with his many ill fitting suits. He is also in desperate need of a shave, a haircut and some product. I’d give him bonus points for have his collar properly starched, but I’d have to deduct it for those shoes. At best 6/10
      She is wearing the wrong color and the dress looks too big. In fact on her the dress looks made from one of the sheets the PR designers used. To make this lovely ensemble look even better she’s wearing the ever so popular nude shoe. makeup is inoffensive, but hair needs a brushing. 6.5/10
      total 6.25/10

      They look jaw-droppingly awful in the thumbnail on the front page (what with that blood vessel on her forehead — can you tell if a person maybe ought to be checked out as a possible candidate for an aneurysm with a vein like that? — and his rough beard). And I love Elie Saab but Angelina had to have picked the least desirable cut and color possible, she might as well be wearing something off the rack.

      I feel like she scores more than half a point more than him.  He looks like an absolute schlub, whereas my biggest complaint with her is that she needs bolder jewelry to offset the simplicity of the dress.

        Yeah, I do wish she’d accessorize more since she can pull off some big statement jewelry. I love this color on her and would love to see it with the gold belt and some big earrings.

      ok, i’m glad we’re letting a little context in the discussion at least–Brad Pitt’s look for a film he’s in the process of making (it’s all over the news). Angelina is also making her directorial debut set in Sarajevo. She received a humanitarian award; gave a very poised, moving speech actually.

      On the fashion front, no arguments with T’Lo’s assessments.

        So, if you receive a humanitarian award you have to look like a famine victim?  Is that how it works?

        And TLo must be so sad.  All their energy trying to get Keith Urban to go get a haircut, and Brad goes right on and copies the look.

      a companion series could then be about showing people breaking those commandments successfully and even addressing the commandments of yesteryear (No white after labor day is the cliched example that most easily springs to mind but feels like it would just be ripping off What Not To Wear’s openning credits).

      These two are such a depressing looking couple. If she doesn’t start to eat something and glam it u[ at least a little she’s going to continue to age like nobody’s business.

      She looks like she’s two steps away from the bathroom to take a shower, with that greasy hair and bathrobe dress. It’s terrible! She really should’ve kept the belt the model wore, or something that’s not the exact same color as the dress. Maybe a chocolate brown belt, if she wanted to look less showy.
      I never saw the attraction in Brad Pitt. He looks like a scrub to me. Though I’ve never been a big fan of men looking like they haven’t bathed in a week.

      One thing I find refreshing about her hair – it appears to be extension-free…  I don’t mind it.

      Way too generous on the scoring, in my opinion. She should have gone the route of the runway styling to make this look a little less caftan on the veranda. He should have at least washed his hair and neatened up the neck scruff.

      Her wrists kind of freak me out because they look like mine, and I have rheumatoid arthritis. Not that I’m doing any armchair diagnosis or saying she has ugly anything, but some of the photos stopped me dead in my tracks. I hope she is just bony naturally.

      Maybe, just maybe… they are kinda over the whole being overly flashy stages of their lives.  They are raising several kids together and I don’t think they want to create this image that they are glamorous and better than everyone else.  Maybe this is a way for them to stay grounded – looking like stars, but not the brightest in the sky.  I think they look great, however, I am starting to worry about Angelina’s health.

The back have a key whole to it- she covers it with the hair…  The runway dress has the necklace to pump it up…. she wears non-existant jewellery…. whats with her? I mean i get that its “minimalism”.. but theres a line between doing minimalism in a Chic Calvin Klien way while there is minimalism as in covering up/taking all the details away from an already boring dress…

      Shave and a haircut, two bits! 

      He can afford that, I think.

      Angie’s dress looks like it came from the Blanche Devereaux Collection. And whether it’s the dress, the makeup/hair, the lighting, she looks much older than she is, and truly haggard. They both look like they’ve been through the grinder recently and haven’t slept since. Oy.

      oh hey, y’all, no body snark, please???? Angelina’s thin and that gown is monster big-billowy, but none of us know anything about her health or nutrition, and even if we did, it’s not really up to us to snark about it.  Please no body snarking?

      I have never understood his appeal, and he’s starting to look a little seedy now (reminds me a bit of Mickey Rourke here). Grown men do not wear their hair in that style.

      She’s wearing a color, so I suppose that’s a plus, but I don’t care for the dress–it just looks like she pulled her bedroom sheers off the curtain rod, wrapped them around her, and use the tie for a belt.

      Am I the only one who has never gotten the stunningly beautiful thing from Angie? She never looked like anything more than generic female actress to me and her acting is mediocre at best.

        I used to think she was totally sexy, inher tight black leather days.  here she looks like a scary skinny hari krishnut, minus the beads.

          You know, when I first saw her, a long time ago, I was blown away by her. She is built like a Barbie doll, and she has the lips of a Bratz doll.  I think if I’d been in a line with AJ at an airport, 10 years ago, my jaw would have dropped. I suppose it would now, too, but more because she’s a celeb. 

          People have different ideas of beauty though, don’t they. Look at T Lo’s vixen vs. virgin face offs.

      That dress is SCREAMING for jewelry. Would it kill her to accessorize?  Otherwise, it’s a granny dress. A very nice granny dress, but it is a granny dress.

      Oh………no.  No, not at all.  The way her wrists look, in that photo where she’s pulling up her skirt, it’s really quite shocking.  You can’t hide a size 00 in a caftan.  He just looks sloppy.  You must have been really relieved that the weekend company left, TLo, because these scores are WAY generous.

      Just an observation……He looks at her like she’s the most important thing in his world.  He always looks at her like that – comprehensively.  I find it ineffably sexy.  Best accessory in the world: an adoring husband.

      Honestly, I’m generally inclined to give most people a pass on the whole color thing.  While I’m very well-suited to vibrant colors physically, they just never feel right on me. I also don’t really mind how plain most of Jolie’s clothes are… again, because I tend to do the same thing.  And yes, I have to pay for my clothes rather than having them given to me, but she should still be allowed to wear something she feels comfortable in. 

      He, however, has NEVER shown good taste in presenting himself to the world, other than during his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.  At that point, he was usually pretty well-groomed and attired, probably because of the image they were trying to project.  (In no way is this an endorsement of their marriage, just that happened to be when he was more kept:)

      photo #1  SHE steps tentatively into the arena, being careful not to trip on her ceremonial robes.  HE tries to act normal.
      .#2  SHE wears the scar of her recent lobotomy, performed in hopes of controlling the sickness which ravages her.  HE says “OMG didn’t i tell you to change out of your bathrobe?”

      #3  HE calls for her attendants, pronto.  girl in the background backs away slowly, maintaining eye contact.

      #4  SHE prays earnestly at the altar of mr.natural for a cure to her emaciating condition.

      #5  HE confers with her psychiatric handlers.  shall we get out the big net?  SHE thinks “i’m supposed to smile now, yes?”  

      #6  HE says “wave to the crowd, honey, like this.”

      #7  SHE says through clenched teeth “get me out of here before i kill someone.” 

      TLo, you were much too kind.  are you wearing your rose colored glasses?

      He – Ah, nothing ages a man like grey hairs in an ill-kept beard. Good going, Brad.  And I would hope the hair is for a role.  Otherwise, not too bad.

      She –  Looks like a poor person’s Olivia Wilde.  The only reason she’s getting away with the dress is the shoulderpads.  Eat a cheeseburger, honey.

      WOW – everyone has brought their A game with the comments!  LMAO before I even finish one cup of coffee?  PRICELESS.  Asf or these two, well, hmmm.  I said below I never really got the fascination with her.  I’ve always heard that he is less than a metrosexual when it comes to personal grooming and I think I also read (now I’m being a pseudo psychologist) that he is embarrassed by his good looks and very humble, so maybe he’s grunges it up for that reason?  Like, “Pay not attention to the god-like creature behind the curtain…”   I’ve never understood why the only times I get to see this guy looking truly awesome is in a movie, not the red carpet.

        Yeah.  He’s like Johnny Depp in that regard.   It kills me when truly beautiful people don’t make the most of their looks.  It’s the least they could do for us poor striving to look nice folks.

      I know this isn’t an In or Out post, but I give them an OUT anyway. That color is not flattering on her, although it is a beautiful dress. Makeup and hair are beautiful. I like facial hair so I’m not going to tell Brad to shave it, but he should trim it! And the long hair has got to go – Brad, accept the fact that we all grow older and can’t do what we used to do!

      You over ranked her.  She wears this same damn mu-mu every time she walks the red carpet.  And points for not flashing the good china every moment of the day, but she loses points for dull and repetitive.

      Eh. She looks like she’s getting ready for bed. It might have been better with the belt the model is wearing (who’s rocking the dress a lot harder than Angelina). Brad needs a haircut. Just blah.

      I think you’ve been *very* generous with your scores.  I’d give him a 4 and her a 5.5, for a combined score of 4.75.  Blech.

      That vein popping out of her head is just seven shades of gross.  Maybe if she had some meat on her bones, then it wouldn’t be so prominent.  Just a thought??

      I realize they’re in Sarajevo, and maybe there was an issue with the municipal water system or something, but they are both multibazillionaires, so if they had to wash their hair in Evian, they should’ve done it.  Both of you: Wash. Your. Greasy. Gross. Hair. You don’t have to style it or cut it, but you do have to wash it.

      The dress looks weird on her. Something is wrong with her bra, or whatever undergarment she’s wearing. It makes her chest look puckered and misshapen.

      If they don’t want to dress as superstars, fine. But then just wear a clean pair of jeans with a nice top and some cool shoes. I think they both look awful here, and I’d give them a much lower score.

      Who cares about them? They have exhausted my interest. But they may continue to serve as TLo fodder indefinitely because you guys are definitely adept at spinning entertainment gold out of straw.

      It’s all about context.  Sure they’re at a film premiere, but it’s in Sarajevo people!  They were there as guests for bringing attention to the refugees from that war stricken area.  They totally struck the perfect balance of beauty and class.  They didn’t and shouldn’t have had to bling it up and go all out glam.  That would have been obscene.
