Oh, man. We hate it when we wind up violating a long-held conviction.
Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling attend the premiere of “The Lucky One” in Germany. Zac Efron wore a George Clinton suit and Taylor Schilling wore a vintage Azzedine Alaïa dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.
Might as well jump right into it.
HE: Is wearing a shiny suit – and we kind of love it on him. We KNOW. We’ve been bitching about the shiny suits for a good while now, but for some reason, this is all working for us. Maybe it’s because he’s young and tiny. Maybe it’s because it’s red. Maybe it’s the slim cut. Whatever it is, it’s looking pretty good to our eyes. We wish he would have buttoned the jacket for pictures, but that’s really the only complaint we have. Score: 9/10. We couldn’t face ourselves in the mirror if we gave a perfect score for a shiny suit.
SHE: Needs help. We’ve tried to be polite about the hair and makeup but no longer. Girl need to pay a snippy gay to take care of that shit for public events. It all looks way too DIY. And that hairstyle isn’t doing her any favors. Makes her look mousey. As for the dress… we’re not in love. Long-sleeved, high-necked, tight, black mini-dresses just scream ’90s to us. There’s nothing here that looks modern, which is funny, because she took quite the modern risk on the red carpet the other day. This is a disappointing followup. This is gonna sound a little mean (HAHA!) but she looks like a male star’s unfamous wife. You know how it is: some big male star is married to a civilian who only occasionally makes public appearances and never dresses to take the focus away from hubby. Girl, we hope the studio isn’t pressuring you to dress down so that pretty boy there gets all the focus. This is your time. Step it up. Score: 5/10.
Combined Score: 7/10. Taylor, we expect you to wow us the next time.
