Pairs Division: Blunt and McGregor

Posted on March 06, 2012

Um, guys? You’re two of our very favorite celebs in the world and we’re thrilled to see you side by side like this, but …

Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor attend the premiere of “Salmon Fishing In the Yemen” in LA. Emily Blunt wore a Naeem Khan dress.

Naeem Khan Fall 2012 Collection

Could you please not pose like you’re at the end of a 12-hour bender?  She looks like she’s about to topple over.

But enough foreplay.

SHE: Is rocking the hell out of that dress. It practically screams “Emily Blunt” so we would have been very disappointed if she couldn’t pull this one off. Hair and makeup are cute; jewelry is perhaps a bit too low-key (chunky would’ve worked well here), and the shoes are also cute, but perhaps a bit on the heavy side. Although we do love the fact that her ankles are wearing bowties. Score: 8.5/10. Not a lot wrong here, but also not selling it as hard as she could.

HE: Looks adorable. We would like to point out that he is on the red carpet, not wearing a tie, and yet he looks suave and not at all underdressed even though he’s got his arm around someone wearing thousands of dollars of clothing and jewelry. Two reasons for that: First, his jacket is buttoned. Boystars, we cannot stress this enough; closing your jacket will make you look slimmer, taller, more dressed up, and less sloppy. It takes 2 seconds of effort, you little shitheads. You can’t manage it?

Okay, sorry. We got a little angry there. Anyway, the second reason he looks good without a tie is because his shirt is pressed and his collar is standing up, something else that a lot of boystars can’t seem to handle. We love the pants (LOVE!), and his hair looks great. We don’t even mind the slightly retro ear hoop. All in all, it’s a fabulous little casual menswear look that manages to do the job for pictures. Score: 8.5/10. Get your damn hand out of your pocket, Ewan.

Combined Score: 8.5/10. They don’t look perfect and neither of them are wearing anything particularly difficult to wear, but they both look damn good.
