Pairs Division: Hemsworth and Cyrus

Posted on March 13, 2012

You guys didn’t seriously think we were only doing one Hunger Games-themed post today, did you? Silly kittens.

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus attend the premiere of “The Hunter Games” in LA. Liam Hemsworth wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. Miley Cyrus wore bustier and skirt by Emilio Pucci, Loree Rodkin jewelry, and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 Collection/Model: Joan Smalls

Dolce & Gabbana Suit


HE: Looks pretty damn good, we have to say. The cut of that suit is a little loose on him, but not so much that we think it’s an error. Some guys like the looser cut and that’s fine, so long as he’s not swimming in his clothes. This all looks like it fits him fairly well. It’s a little on the boring side but the vest was a nice touch and any time a guy puts the effort in and doesn’t get anything majorly wrong, we’ve gotta give him credit for that. Score: 9/10. Very, very good. Now try something exciting for the next poledancing opportunity.

SHE: At least looks her age. You’ve gotta give her that. Believe it or not, we don’t actually mind this. She’s young enough that she can get away with the belly-baring and besides, there’s nothing particularly vulgar about the look. We think it would have looked better without the strip of skin, but we’re not scandalized by it. If anything, we’re happy she’s not dressing like Helen Mirren for once. Makeup’s pretty and the hair, while not as fabulous as we’d like, is soft and young-looking, which suits her. Score: 8/10. It’s good, but it’s still just a little honky-tonk for the red carpet.

Combined Score: 8.5/10. Well done, children. Next time, try for a fitted suit and less skin, mkay? Off you go.

    They both look amazing. For once I think they actually look like a cute couple. 

  • kattyatlaw

    Miley looks pretty darn fantastic (for her). She’s a little bit of a hippie so she can pull off the slightly-hippie look (like a young Drew Barrymore, but without those dumb daisies in her hair) and I’ll give her props to the end of the earth for FINALLY taking out her awful extensions. I’m impressed.

    • miwome

       Oh, is that what happened? HALLELU. The shorter length is much prettier on her, anyway. I agree with you about the hippie thing, although if we’re about to enter another period of all midriff, all the time I will be really annoyed. I remember the two-piece PROM DRESSES.

  • Agree, Miley’s hair and makeup look good. But that outfit? Seriously, I wore something very similar to a Renaissance Faire in 1993. And it wasn’t Pucci, either – I bought it at a local shop owned by Deadheads – I think it was called Earth Groove or something similar. 

    • It looks like something you’d pick up at Romancing the Stone or one of those other stores that sell incense and hermit crabs in the mall.

      • Jessica Rowe

        Totally agree. I have no why I vehemently hate this dress so much, but I do.

      • Hermit crabs? Do they really? 

        • It’s your one-stop shop for incense, essential oils, “African” and “Asian” art, ugly purses, and yes, hermit crabs. 😉

    • schadenfreudelicious

      ours was called Boodlum and they doubled as a head shop.. i recall a gal pal bought something very similar to attend belly dancing classes…..

    • ballerinawithagun

      Yes, it is very expensive for something that most of us used to own.

  • Jo Koster

    Wish the bustier wasn’t a size too small for her. The strip of skin and the babyheads make it skanky.

    • Exactly what I was thinking. If the bustier covered all her boobs (like it does on the model), it would take it out of skanky territory. The belly skin I wouldn’t mind otherwise.

    • patticake1601

      That’s it! That’s why it looks better on the model.

    • Judih1

      I agree – too much skin showing in all the wrong places.

  • BazoDee

    Agreed 100% -I think I might have worn something like this when I was her age. Not 100% appropriate for the event -but that’s sort of fun when your’re young. The top actually fits her quite well. I mean -sure stuff is spilling out -but not squeezing out.

  • He brought a belly dancer with him! How cute! 

  • Sara__B

    He looks great – 9/10. I’m not loving her baby heads and belly strip, but it’s not awful and it could have been SO much worse – 7.5/10.

    • MilaXX

       I blame the stylist for the current baby head trend. It seems every female celeb has to have her boobs smushed and pushed to within an inch of life.

  • ampg

    Honestly, I think she looks like she forgot to put her shirt on before getting in the limo.  It’s just too lingerie-like for me.  Agree that he looks great.

  • She looks like a gypsy pirate. Not okay.

  • siriuslover

    I really like her shorter hair. They look great in this pic, but yeah, no belly next red carpet, Miley.

  • poggi

    Was this premiere at a pool?  If so, she’s dressed perfectly (she looks pretty) and he’s overdressed.  I would knock them collectively down a point for not quite complimenting each other in tone or level of formality–7.5/10.

    • Derek_anny

       I really want Hollywood to do some sort of beach screening.  BYOB-Bring your own blanket.  It would be an interesting carpet, and it would seriously mess with stylists.  You client is attending a movie screening, where they have to sit on a beach blanket in the sand.  Maybe I’ll give them camp chairs if I’m feeling charitable.  I can hear the hyperventilating now.

      • formerlyAnon

        THIS cracked me up. You just might be an evil genius.

      • poggi

        yes, that should happen. people should do more things that mess with celebrity stylists.

      • Derek_anny

         The Designers would love it to display their Resort collections.

  • Wow that suits her so well.  She’s a little bit of a pseudo grungy hippy/crunchy granola type in her styling choices and that fits that style taste while being both younthful and flattering on her.

  • Rebecca Johnson

    No. Absolutely not. I read the TLo commentary on Miley’s outfit, it’s valid, but I just cannot. I scrolled down, beheld the outfit and gasped in visceral horror. 

  • My biggest issue is that…whatever is going on, Miley’s making that dress look like a knock-off.

  • This hairstyle really suits Miley. 

    Liam is a handsome guy.

  • Major points go to Miley for losing her hair extensions, I am so tired of the skanky, fake hair on these young actresses. For that alone, I would give this look a thumbs up. 

  • Anathema_Device

    Hemsworth looks like a mini John Krasinksi here, like he could be John’s little brother. I think he looks sharp.

    I’m not scandalize by Miley’s midriff, I just think it looks bad and pretty tacky. I prefer cutouts to belly shirts, if I had to choose. In my scoring, she’s a lot lower than an 8.

  • I thought the boys, in general, did a pretty good job on the red carpet, especially considering the median age.

    • MilaXX

       Actually I thought Dayo Okeniyi, plays Thresh looked the best of all the male stars.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Am I the only one who thinks that guy is crazy hot?

        • MilaXX

           Not at all. I’m just sad he won’t be in the sequels.

  • Terence Ng

    I think she looks great. It’s young, a little boho. If it was a one-piece, it would risk ageing her in a Don~a Maria sort of way. Love it. Love the hair, too. You go, girl!

  • Really dislike the “two-piece dress” thing that’s going around–it’s not generally a scandalous amount of skin, just too many segments. And nobody seems to use it with intelligence.

  • janetjb

    I’ll give them a solid 9

    He looks pretty good (I prefer him without the scruff)
    She looks terrific and totally age appropriate

    If I were grading on a curve Miley would get a 10, I don’t know when I she’s looked better.

  • gabbilevy

    Miley’s saying, “Look! I’m from District 12, too! This is my coal-mining outfit!” 

  • Miley looks great, I am so glad she finally got rid of all that hair. This cut really suits her, and the makeup looks good. And I actually like the outfit a lot on her. I also like these two together.

  • kolokOlchik

    This is the first time that the man looks more dressed up than the woman standing next to him

  • sockandaphone

    nope, miley’s dress just no.
    also i expect for THG posts, TLO. cover the tributes!

  • MilaXX

    He looks fine. I realize guys almost deserve and award for managing to dress appropriately AND hem their pants properly, but I think a 9 is a bit high, I’d give him an 8 at best.
    She looks great. I think her makeup is really clean and pretty. Her hair is extension free and the color is one of the better examples of ombre hair. I don’t even mind the dress because I think she’s just the right age for it. In fact, Iooking at the rest of the cast Jennifer Lawrence actually looks overdressed for the premiere last night. I realize she the star, but I can’t with that gold (BTW I know Miley is not if the movie.) Anyhoo I’d give her an 8/10
    Combined Score: 8/10

  • You know- I have to say I love it. Granted that’s a Miley curve I’m judging her on, but i can think of a few women I’d like this outfit on. I think she looks fresh, healthy, and pretty. 

    Him…I prefer his brother, but he’s a decorative kiddy. 

  • PastryGoddess

    *grumble…grumble*  I guess she looks ok.  

    He looks like an insurance salesman…in a $3000 tux

  • MilaXX

    Oh and FYI I  thought Ryan Secrest and his crew were bad on the RC with the stupid commentary and questions until I saw the second tier crew E! had covering this last night. I had to turn to the no name Yahoo commentators

  • SapphoPoet

    He looks very debonair, I must say. I think she looks good, too. 

  • NCDFan

    At least she’s wearing a bra!

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Just because for once, Miley Cyrus looks her age, doesn’t mean that it’s a good look. Some things should not translate off the runway, and this outfit is one of them. At least she’s not in full honky-tonk look.

    He obviously took squinting lessons from Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s fine now, dude, but not in 10 years, is all I’m saying.

  • Violina23

    THe dress itself is kinda cute on her — the problem is that the top is about 2 sizes too small. Other than that, I can get behind it. Kinda makes me think of Carrie Bradshaw

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    She looks better than usual, but I still wish someone would pack her off to finishing school. She has serious appropriateness issues that are hurting her career. Pretty girl, it can’t be denied. I suppose he’s good looking as well but the combined effect here is very dull. 

  • kcarb1025

    Bare stomachs are never appropriate anywhere other than home and the beach IMO.

  • This is the first time I ever found Liam handsome, so way to go. And perhaps I have no taste (or am letting my Miley Cyrus-bias get the best of me), but I think she looks awful. I wonder if she has the ability to look classy. Usually I’d say ‘I hope she looked around to get some inspiration’ but everyone apart from the 12-year-olds looked cheap and tacky in that red carpet. And I’m a fan of these people… 

  • Farthingale

    Must comment on the hair. I wish more young actressess would go with shorter, authentic hair, so the miles-long extensions stop being the go-to “mutton dressed as lamb” accessory for Ladies of A Certain Age (i. E. “Real Housewives”, & Co.)

    Since we are visually accustomed to reading copious, flowing, locks as “extensions”, it just looks like extensions on an older gal, not “preternaturally youthful ageless beauty”. They’re over for awhile gals. Pack them away and work another look until we get a little forgetful. Please.

    Thanks for blazing this trail Miley.

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      THANK YOU.  Extensions always look gross to me.

    • She looks so much better with out those nasty extensions.

  • nannypoo

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think she looks like a hooker. It seems like she went from annoying child to slutty-looking young adult overnight.

  • ccm800

    Agree! They look adorbs. 

  • KateMaryC

    I feel like this is an example of the effect of posture. I would go along with the idea that she looks great, if only she weren’t stocking her boobs out and arching her back. It goes from daring and chic to boys, check out my goods.

  • Elaine Lang

    Her dress looks like a belly dance costume.

    • eeesssacccclllyyyy.  A conservative, boring belly dance costume.  I think it would have been stunning as a dress with a fitted top, the band o’belly skin is making my eyes twitch.

  • Elaine Lang

    Her dress looks like a belly dance costume.

  • I think that Miley looks adorable! The thing is, she looks really, genuinely happy. And that, my friends, is what can make any woman look beautiful. The fact that she already IS beautiful is icing on the cake! As for him, very cute.

  • RebeccaKW

    Miley doesn’t look bad.  The trailer trash prom dress isn’t horrible, and she’s young enough to get away with it, but it’s not a red carpet look.  The lace doily effect is just too casual.  I don’t hate it on her, I just think it’s not right for here. 

    He does look good.  But what happened?  In yesterday’s magazine post, he was kinda hot.  Today, he’s back to the doofy guy.  Is it her?  Is it the smile?  

    • Sara__B

       I think it’s the smile. Yesterday I was complaining that he didn’t smile even once in the magazine spread. Today I see why. He can’t/won’t do a natural, attractive smile!

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    They both look pretty good, but I’m not sure that I’m ready for the Fatima-the-Belly dancer look as serious “dress up”.
    Guess I’ll have to get used to it.

  • Spicytomato1

    What an odd pair. He looks like a businessman who picked her up at a hotel bar.

  • I totally disagree with you on Miley. I had an overwhelmingly negative reaction to her and her two-piece. Blegh.

    • She’s 19, not 35. This is great for a teen.

  • KC

    I think he looks fantastic and she looks pretty darn great. I like her outfit the ONLY issue I have is the strip of skin as well. Not because it is vulgar but it kinda makes the look a bit casual, maybe? Like the top should be with some jeans and not that long skirt. But other than that I really like her make up and hair!

  • charlotte

    Am I the only one who thinks that he is the hot guy Haley Joel Osment did not grow up to look like?
    As for her…this just screams slutty.  Yay for the loss of hair extensions though.

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    It’s a little honky tonk, to be sure- but I feel like no matter what she wears, she’ll bring a little honky tonk.

    I could see many other starlets rocking this and not making it look as trailer-trashy. Still, though – she does look vastly better than usual.

  • snarkykitten

    please. she looks like the bastard child of a hippie & a mall goth.

  • kentiesgirl

    Bleh. He: 7/10…pocket pool, how did you guys let that slide? She: I just can’t with her.

    3.5/10. Leave the burnt Disney muffin at home next time Liam.

  • Miley: Lower half, sorceress. Top half, stripper. That’s it. A sorcestriperress.

  • alyce1213

    It’s not the dress.  It’s her.  She makes everything look tacky.

  • aimee_parrott

    Wow, that is BY FAR the best that Miley Cyrus has ever looked. 

  • NewYork777

    Hunger games!!!!!

  • NewYork777

    Who writes this blog site? Their fashion critque sounds like mechanics talking fashion! 

  • Liam looks great. Miley looks less trashy than usual, but still trashy.

  • Judy_J

    Miley Cyrus stole Jeannie’s mourning gown!

  • Basil Von Broccoli

    …hippie boudoir? Belly-dancing witch?

  • “it’s still just a little honky-tonk for the red carpet”

    So’s her family.  I’m just sayin’.

  • formerlyAnon

    I absolutely agree, on almost all counts.  I might give her an 8.25 – and if the top had looked more like an abbreviated hippie-esque top and less like sexy lingerie, she’d have been a solid 9.  I don’t mind the belly baring – she’s young enough and she’s unusually cute, here.

  • tvmovielover

    Miley looks good but a little too honky-tonk for an 8-hers is 7 or 7.5-he looks great.

  • rawrgrowlrawr

    This is the first time I’ve ever thought Miley was pretty. The dress is borderline skanky, but she pulls it off. He’s not bad either! 

  • I’m sure she could have got the top in a slightly larger size.

  • He looks generic, and she looks cheap.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Those two don’t even look like they belong at the same event together.

    This is the scenario these photos evoke: The Board Meeting went well and the young tech-firm CFO called up the concierge to order himself an escort.

  • guest2visits

    He looks very nice! She looks like she always does to me; 15 going on 40. The dress was a better look on the model.

  • Allison Woods

    does nice things for the girls, but yeah, way too honky tonky.

  • Sophie Collier

    Miley dressed up like a goth bellydancer.  Nice.

  • quiltrx

    I could have lived without seeing quite so much of Miley’s babyheads…but the look is pretty cute and she’s NOT SLUMPING for once!

  • poketom

    ok listen, if this was the cannes film festival and this premier was taking place at like 7pm as the sun sets I would have no problem with the dress. 

    No no, I take that back. It’s just awful. 

  • RzYoung

    I used to detest her but she’s kindof growing on me lately, I actually don’t mind this look on her! Do you think they really look similar though? – they’ve got the same eyes, creepy

  • mozzer0906

    This is the best Miley has ever looked on the RC for a long long long time.  She looks her age!  I don’t love the strip of skin, but honestly I think she looks so good I’m happy to overlook it.  They both look stunning together.  Her hair also looks healthier than it has for YEARS!

  • She needs a necklace.

  • Srw27

    In all my life, I will never understand how SHE gets HIM.  

  • marilyn

    For her:  From the neck down, belly dancing class.  From the neck up:  Working at the car wash.
