Darlings, like all gay people, we hate to make generalizations, but we look at these two genetically superior specimens and can’t help
imagining them having sex wondering if they’re not the British version of the Jolie-Pitts, which then has us depressed over how badly American stars dress vs. their British counterparts.

And before the Brits howl in laughter and point out all the horribly dressed celebs they have cluttering up their red carpets, we just want to say we agree. Mostly. Of course Great Britain has a ton of badly dressed celebrities. Being badly dressed is almost expected with any celebrity these days. But when you get into the upper tiers of British stardom, especially the actors, then it’s hard not to come away thinking they do it better over there. Never, in all the time we’ve been doing red carpet coverage, have we seen Brad and Angie go out together looking this put-together. These two don’t start from the assumption that they’re so good-looking they don’t need to worry about how they look. It’s refreshing
But not perfect.
HE: Has to see a tailor. We appreciate the bod, but the suits are always obviously in service to showing off the bod and that usually means that they’re just too damn tight on him all the time. Way too much pulling and bulging in places that should be doing neither. We don’t love the same-color tie, but we do love the hankie and the shoes and the overall color scheme (which is odd, because it all matches his hair, skin, and eyes). Score: 8.75/10. Go up a size, dude.
SHE: Loves that one-shoulder, mermaid-style hairdo and we do not. We love the dress but it’s far longer on her than on the model and the ruffle on the bottom becomes unflattering when you move it from just above the knees to halfway down the shins. We also don’t think the pointy-toed pumps were a good idea with this hem length. We love the idea of this dress on her, but not at this length. Seems they both need to understand proportions a little better. Score: 8.5/10. Raise that hem just a skosh and you’d be solving a lot of problems. Use the extra fabric to make a turban for your hair, darling.
Combined score: 8.625/10. Precision! It’s important not only in scoring but also in tailoring and fit.
Did you see what we did there, bringing everything full circle like that? Quality blogging.
