Pairs Division: Jolie and Pitt

Posted on January 09, 2012

Darlings, what better way to jump into the week than by starting it off with a little glamour and stiff body language? True, starting off the week in bed is, in fact, the better deal but nobody likes a smartass.

 Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attend the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala. Angelina Jolie wears an Elie Saab gown. Brad Pitt wears Versace.

Why do we get the feeling we’re right at the aftermath of a two-hour long argument that ended in the limo 90 seconds before these pics were taken? That is some stiff and uncomfortable-looking body language. Personally, we think conjecture as to the state of various celebrity marriages is boring and almost always way off base, so we’re not even going there. No, it’s far more likely their argument was over the fact that she’s allergic to colors and he never met a tailor he didn’t ignore.

SHE: Is wearing exactly the kind of dress that suits her to a T: a boring one. Okay, no: a simple goddess gown in a neutral tone (which is, in our world, a synonym for “boring”). It fits and flatters and it hits the floor exactly the way it’s supposed to, rather than puddling up an extra foot of fabric at her feet. But damn, girl. Were you attacked by a rainbow as a child or something? Even the face is all done up in shades of beige. Yeah, you’re gorgeous, Ange, but we were never the types to confuse genetic luck with style. It’s a look – and it’s her look – but it’s as dull as dishwater and mostly the same color: Score: 6.5/10.

HE: Hurt his leg skiing and thus the unusual accessory. He needs to cut that hair. We’ve been hearing “It’s for a role” for what seems like several years now. Either he’s in the midst of the longest shooting schedule in film history or it’s not for a role and he likes wearing it that way. We’ll give him credit. Unlike 99.9999% of men his age, he can, in fact, still rock the Cobain hair. We think he should get it cut and shave for public appearances, but we can’t deny it’s a look that works for him. Like hers, it’s a boring look, though; mainly because he’s gone through periods sporting hair like this for the entire length of his career. The rule applies to men as well: if you’re making the same style choices in your 40s that you were making in your 20s, you need to do some style assessment on yourself. Anyway, the suit is fine, but it’s all a half a size too big for him. Score: 6.5/10.

Combined Score: 6.5/10. All she needs is color and all he needs is a haircut and a tailor and they’d be stunning. We realize some people think they’re stunning no matter what, but bitchy gay fashion bloggers get easily bored.

 

We’ll have more red carpet looks from the Palm Springs Film Festival later today, dolls.

    I have a feeling his posture around her (or anyone) is stiff because he’s in pain.  Knee injuries suck.  That said, her dress strikes me as what would happen if you tried to turn a Band-Aid into an evening gown — gauzy, beige, and uninteresting.

    They both look like haggard old people. She looks like she has on too much Oil of Old Lady and he looks like he can’t be bothered to take a shower. Her neck in the top photo is scary

    In addition to color, I would add that she needs a sandwich. Those are some seriously protruding bones she’s sporting there. As for Brad, I’d settle just for a haircut and a shave. It disturbs me that he has managed to resemble the guy who wants to wash my windshield every morning for years now.

      The pretty, the soap opera way they hooked up, the rainbow family. But as individual human beings, yeah, not terribly interesting. Someone we know was at a museum at the same time they were, and he says that based on their comments on the art, they are definitely not the sharpest knives.

          It’s very simple.  Brad Pitt is a big star by himself.  Angelina Jolie is a big star by herself.  The two combined = huge attention. 
          Jennifer Aniston, Katie Holmes, Blake Lively and likes have been getting huge attentions for years, and their “star status” and awards and such are no match to these two. 
          Not to mention they have been making movies consistently in these years and generally lived a very public life.  Heck, if Pippa Middleton can have gather global fascination merely being a Princess’s sister, then why can’t two A-list movie stars? 

        • http://twitter.com/Goldielox73 Goldie

          As is the need of the press to fuel the Aniston/Jolie war.  I’m sure they are all over it at this point and I’m sick of seeing “reporters” trying to keep it going.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HREPOWNBVUBRIVPQCF3ST2IKDM Euphory

            Hey, it keeps Aniston relevant and gives her some attention, and gives Jolie more press.  I doubt either one of them is complaining, especially not Aniston.

    Skiing injury? I read an interview with her saying he fell while he was holding one of their kids and hurt his knee trying to protect the kid from being hurt. I’ve had that kind of injury myself – it’s instinctive to protect the kid at your own expense.

    But yeah, she’s boring and too skinny. I like his shaggy look, though. And I’d rather see a man in a suit that’s a little loose, over one that’s too tight. Perfectly fitted would be best, of course. And since he can easily afford it, there’s really no excuse for poorly fitting clothes.

    It does look like a jumpsuit.  I read a pretty great interview with him in weekend before last’s NYTs Oscar review section and was reminded of the fact that he possesses talent — He was so likable in the interview that I’m giving him a pass on the hair and scruff front.  They both specialize in the “we’re above it all” look.  Angelina seems content to revel in the world’s designation, inexplicable to me, as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman — I don’t know about the body language thing.  She may be doing the hands against his chest thing, very romance novel really, but he has his big hand practically on her ass and she looks pretty damn happy to me.  It’s all very we’re French and drink our morning  coffee out of big bowls with these two on any red carpet. Predictable.

        He’s also pretty amazing in Tree of Life.  I also enjoyed him in Burn After Reading … the perfect Himbo.  Would love to know how Moneyball was tailor made for you.  With your writing talents, for real, sounds like a great piece would come of it!

          Well, for one, it was a baseball movie (without Kevin Costner) — in between fashion magazines and histories, I spent my youth with baseball.  (Kevin Costner was in Field of Dreams which claimed to be a baseball movie and failed; he was also in Bull Durham, which would have been great if Tim Robbins could have managed a believable throwing motion even once.)  I have a ridiculous amount of useless knowledge when it comes to baseball and stats.  (Fun fact: the pitcher with the best ERA in World Series history is Babe Ruth.:)

    If the camera truly adds 10 pounds then I cannot imagine what she looks like in person. She really looks unhealthy, even the makeup can’t hide her gauntness. Her hair looks prettier than I’ve seen it in ages. And the dress isn’t horrible. Horribly boring but not horrible.

    As for him, I agree that a clean-shaven face and shorter hair would be a big improvement. The suit looks too big and somewhat odd with the shiny details, like a kid playing dress-up with some stuff he found in his dad’s closet.

    She needs to meet jewel tones.  At least in makeup.  I am a black addict myself, but I never leave the house without colorful eye makeup and lip gloss.  I am white as a sheet.  It makes me look alive.  She looks ghostly and not in a hot way. 

    He would be such a dish if he just took some clippers to his head. 

  • Anonymous

    I will say that as much as I dislike his long hair (I only liked it in Legends of the Fall), he gets points for it being washed.  It’s certainly less greasy than I’ve seen it in a while.  I also call B.S. on the movie roll business-every movie he’s released lately, he’s had short hair.  If you want long hair fine, but own it.

    I read somewhere he has been trying really hard to shed the “pretty boy” image.  IMHO he is still quite hot when he cleans up (he was pretty hot in “Money Ball” when he shaved and cut his hair shorter). 
    She’s still quite beautiful, but she definitely looks better in color (she has some pretty good looks with red dresses).  It’s funny.  Back  a few years ago, she was wearing all sorts of crazy gowns.  From some seriously dazzling gowns she wore to the Golden Globes, to that Morticia Adams gown she had when she won her Oscar, to her leather dress.  She seemed to be a quite adventurous dresser as a young woman (not to mention all the tattoos).  It seems she’s become all “meh” and is cultivating an image of “I have better things to do”. 

  • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

    Weirdly, I never, ever, EVER bought into the whole Brad Pitt thing until recently, but I find that he’s even hotter as he gets older. Yes, he needs a haircut and suit that fits, but he still looks pretty good.

    Angie, well, I just don’t know. I actually was writing a post about this dress for my own blog (it’s not live yet) and was looking at old photos of her. The best she’s ever looked was when she was pregnant, because she had some meat on her bones. LIke this: http://newyorkfashionweektrends.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Angelina-Jolies.jpg

    And she was in color. AND she was smiling. It’s amazing what a smile can do to not make you look like humorless, jaded bitch.

    So, to sum up, she needs:
    1. Color
    2. A burger
    3. To smile

        She was such a beautiful woman back in the day when she did crazy, crazy stuff and seemed like she enjoyed life.  But now … Let’s just leave the “most beautiful woman in the world” title with Aishwarya Rai where it belongs, and forget that people still think that Jolie deserves this.

    Oh, I can’t be that harsh on these two, though they irritate me.

    It does seem like they could step it up a bit, before their genetic superiority is dimmed by old age, and take a tiny risk occasionally, but I really can’t get too censorious about someone who makes multiple photographed public appearances every week resorting to a uniform. They aren’t fashion professionals nor noted fashion celebrities, after all.

    She’d get a good, not great score in the 8 range except that in the front view her blouson bodice is just too full at the waist, it says ‘potato sack’ not ‘graceful drape.’ So, 7.5/10

    He irritates me, and I wish he’d shave, but except for the jacket of his suit looking a tad baggy I can’t fault his attire. 7/10, and I know I’m being severe because of said irritation.

    7.25/10 for the pair.

    I think he looks good. Yeah the suit’s a bit too large but it’s not often he wears a black suit.  The long haired scruffy look is my favorite of his looks so he can keep it as long as he wants to as far as I’m concerned.   I actually find him very interesting. He’s funny and smart.  He’s an architect and interior designer in his spare time.  He’s also a good actor with good instinct for picking roles.  I don’t actually know much about her (mainly because she has a habit of picking roles I’m not interested in seeing), except that she acts and does a lot of charity.

    Angelina did, however, wear a bright red dress a couple of months ago and TLo missed it. At that point, she probably figured if she was going to be ignored by TLo when she did step out of her comfort zone then there was no point.

    Oh, he looks fine and Brad Pitt’s fine is pretty good, but the lack of effort is staggering.  Is it me, or does he look apologetic in that first picture.  Maybe he whispered “I’m sorry” to her, because by the last picture she seems markedly less stiff and standoffish.

    I am perhaps a product of my generation, but I really want to attack his hair with a flat iron and slap his hands every time he tries to tuck it behind his ears. If you want pretty long hair you damn well better show it off! I do really love it on him (surprisingly), but I don’t like the styling.

    As for her, well, at least black was dramatic on her. I hate the beige so very much. Ultimately, I think she should just stick to wearing maroon & black all the time. They both look good on her, she can mix and match all of her accessories (lol, assuming she decides to start wearing them), and most importantly she won’t look so offensively bland to my tender eyes.

    The back of her dress does give it some interest, but not much.  Looks too big for her, and certainly does nothing to emphasize her shape.  He looks fine.  I, too, am sick to death of the hair and the facial scruff.  Considering their beauty, talent and wealth, these two are incredibly boring.

        This event is strictly to shore up support for awards. Especially an Oscar which Brad Pitt would serve his mother’s head on a platter to get, and Angelina would serve up Brad’s head for something bigger than a decade old supporting actress nod. Which is fine–I don’t begrudge that at all. But stop desperately pretending you don’t care and maybe take a bath or something.

    Ever since I found out that Billy Bob Thorton has chromophobia, I wonder if she started dressing that way for him and just got used to it. (and heck, maybe she’s still dressing that way for him, they’re supposedly friends).

      I doubt it.  She was a goth teen (and a goth young adult) so I think she just likes this style.  Besides, even when she first started dating Pitt, she was in leather dresses and all sorts of interesting things.  The bland dressing trend only started a few years ago (after the birth of Shiloh).  The skinniness started when her mother passed away.  Even then, she wears a bright red dress and green and blue once in a while with bright lip stick (but these get less featured here).

    I don’t mind that he doesn’t want to visit a barbershop but he needs a tailor. His clothes are falling off him.  I have a feeling he’s lost a great deal of weight and is hiding behind the baggy clothes.  Not flattering at all.

    Hate her dress:  Too lumpy looking and lack of color.  Don’t care about how he looks.

    The douchery just pours out of him.
    I get it. You both don’t care. So go home already.

    Boring.  I love them both, but BOOOORING!  I’m’ so sick of how dull they’ve been looking lately.

      Same here, but someone earlier posted that AJ was much more interesting pre-kids.  That made me think that she probably feels obligated to be boring now that she’s a mother.  You know, so as to not embarrass the children that are old enough to say, “you’re wearing THAT out of the house?”  Plus, krist, they have six kids and that is all sorts of wearing.  Even if you have help, working when you have children is draining business.  

      And I wish everyone would get over how skinny AJ is when she’s ALWAYS been skinny.  Gia, Foxfire, Hackers, she’s skinny in all of those.  Even when she did Tomb Raider and was working out like crazy, she didn’t look toned in the usual way, she looked skinny.  So WHY oh WHY does anyone expect that she’d be anything but thin chasing around six kids?   Bad Mommy has six kids and is just as thin.  Maybe someone should tell HER she needs a burger.  

      Speaking of Bad Mommy, I’ll bet she’d do a great job of designing red carpet looks for Angie.  They should be friends.

    Her color palette for clothes is the same as the paint chips that the decorator brought over for the office walls.  UGH.  Btw – I sent that decorator packing and tossed her sad paint chips. I ended up selecting a gorgeous paint of a dove blue/gray on the wall in front of which sits a bright green couch.  So there.
    And him?  He needs to FUCKING SHAVE.    In terms of what causes the furor over them – it is true that Brad Pitt can act.  She leaves me flat.

      My brother’s office is a deep teal — he likes it that way:)

    He seems stupid and she seems insane to me, so… I don’t really care how they dress when she’s all repressing the insanity and he’s all repressing the stupidity and then they just both come off Dullsville.

    Was her gown altered in the limo as well?  Versace should have cut off that extra 2 inches from the back of her shoulder strap

    That pool of fabric at her waist is tres unflattering. She has a slammin’ body, why hide it in this egregious manner?

    Actually I heard they are doing reshoots for World War Z, so yeah, he really is keeping that look for a movie. 

    And while I agree that her outfit is unnecessarily bland and unflattering, I didn’t think his suit was so bad.

    And funny thing for me is that I just saw pictures of Angie/Brad on ONTD from this same event, which were pretty cute and a lot less stiff than they usually are on the red carpet. So interesting that you guys have these pictures and thought they were just getting over fighting from them.

    Wait, is that a gown, or maxi culottes? Because the picture here :

    Yeah, Angie’s dress could use some color, but she knows her style and works it.  Love this dress from the back.  Brad’s hair is so bad that even he can’t get away with it.
