    HE looks really sharp!  She looks….ok.  Hair is nice.  I don’t love the dress or the color.  But she’s put together for this RC.  Overall good couples score – actually helped by the guy this time.

      Considering that these pictures were probablly taken after a performance (and after midnight), I think they both look good.

      He needs a little eyebrow grooming — those are wild old man eyebrows. 

  • I hate side hair…

  • Dear American Men,

    This is how you wear a suit. Bam.

    All the Best,


    • Sara__B

       Most British men look sharp AND comfortable in suits. It’s a great combination.

    Jessica Chastain is so BEAUTIFUL on film that I really don’t understand how she can manage to actually look frumpy on the red carpet all the time. I blame the shape of the dress. Make up and hair are kinda retro nice tho. 🙂 Also, ‘Matthew’ can wear anything and I will still swoon. 

    • I blame Stella.

      • choco

        hahahha a likely theory!

    • kschwarting

      I echo Tadiana–I hate the dress, but Jessica has such a winning smile that I still think she looks great.

    • I was thinking the same thing about Dan that you do about Jessica

  • Oh Mr. Crawley! You look divine. 

  • An incredibly hot pair who both look… kind of bad in photos. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE WORLD

  • Wow, hate that neckline.

    • Lori

      So much hate. It’s unattractive and it’s tripping my OCD. Is there a petition somewhere that we can sign to force Stella to retire from “designing” or at least to get celebrities to stop wearing her clothes in public?

      • charlotte

         Or maybe make her attend a class taught by let’s say Laura Bennet and Oscar de la Renta.

  • G

    WOW.  Still not a fan of Stella McCartney – love her Dad tho!

  • Overly harsh light, right? I bet this looked better/deeper/richer in person.

    • kittenwithaquip

       Almost any flash with a redhead who isn’t ashamed of being ghostly pale is harsh. The upside is I glow so white that no one can make out my wrinkles.

      • poggi

        That’s funny.  Whenever I see this done intentionally, I always think of it now as the “Cher Strategy” after that one video she had where everything was blindingly lit (something about believing in life after love…).  Anyhow all you could see was lots of black hair and lips in a sea of smooth, glowing white.  I am pretty sure she had a nose, but most of the time you couldn’t see it.   

  • Does he have whiskers?

  • Jessica, from a fellow redhead, stay the hell away from yellow. It does not suit us one bit, and that buttery shade is doing you no favours, it is making your skin look sallow if not slightly jaundiced. Also, why is your dress actively avoiding your right shoulder?

  • So many trends that I don’t love, gathered together in the same photo. Unflattering yellow, one shoulder hair, illusion net, 3 piece suit (he looks like an undertaker) and not enough jewellery.

    • MilaXX

       a whole lot of pieces equaling a great big nothing.

  • another_laura

    Wow.  She just looks bad in that color and the shoes, well, I suppose it’s the neutral for that dress, but yuck.  

  • It looks like she has a weird yellow fungus growing on her body. And he could use a brow waxing.

  • MilaXX

    He looks like a banker.
    She is making me hate illusion dresses even more. I have no idea how you make a yellow dress look bland, yet she managed to do just that.

  • That is one fugly dress.

  • One of the lace appliqués fell off from her right shoulder…

  • gabbilevy

    I actually think the color of her dress works better on her than I would have expected, but the dress is a big ole nothin. Hair and face is gorge.
    He’s nummy.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    Ew. I don’t like that dress at all. And she’s so pretty. Hi Matthew! You’re looking good, but you need to stand up straight.

  • Judy_S

    As yellow asymmetrical  lace-on-illusion dresses go, I don’t think this is all that bad. I think Chastain looks beautiful.

  • kirkyo

    I hovered on that close up of him for longer than I’d like to admit.

  • PastryGoddess

    I still hate Stella McCartney.  However this dress does not have as much suckitude as some of her other dresses.  This color on Jessica is…odd?…weird?…off?

    He looks like a banker

  • Tatiana Luján

    Her makeup is great.

  • I refuse to believe that any gays were involved in the choosing of Jessica’s dress, and if there were, they need to be fired immediately.

    Captain Crawley looks a dish, of course.

  • PrunellaV

    That yellow is sickly. They make a cute couple.

  • He looks nice and well put-together, though it’s a bit “boring banker.” 

    I love the dress, but I”m not convinced that that’s the best color for her. Plus, it could also use some smoothing out.

  • Hello, Matthew. I think you need to speak to @LadyMarysEyebrows:disqus about your lack of grooming in said region. Otherwise, you look perfectly fine.

    Jessica Chastain is starting to really annoy me with her lack of ability to dress well.

    • AmeliaEve

       YES. His valet is really falling down on the job. Those caterpillars are frightening The Ladies.

  • rloliveira

    That is a terrible dress.

  • Qitkat

    As Stella dresses go, this one is quite pretty, and Jessica is very striking in it. But not quite perfect. I wonder how it looked in person.
    I can picture Michelle Obama wearing it, though I doubt she would wear something optically illusionally*, if not truly, revealing.
    Dan looks very well put together. Handsome suit and tie. He’s so boyishly charming.
    *probably not a real word 😉

  • All he has to do is snug that tie knot up a tiny bit and he’s perfect.  Jessica should drop kick that dress into the nearest dustbin, it’s not doing a thing for her.  Plus her makeup looks weird.  (Unless it’s left over from being on stage, in which case she gets a bye.)

  • l_c_ann

    The dress fabric looks like a really, really cheap plastic embossed tablecloth that you’d throw away after a single use.

  • KathKo

    Ugh !
    Lady stars, starlet and wannabees, I have only one advice for you : STAY AWAY FROM STELLA MC CARTNEY’S STUFF !!! IT’S TOXIC !!!

  • Carolyn

    When I read that Dan Stevens was one of the Booker judges this year he suddenly became a lot more attractive!

  • crash1212

    GAH! What is it with Stella McCartney and her obsession with pale illusion netting? SO ugly. And I don’t think the swirling Frenches mustard shade is doing Jessica any favors. And I can’t with the hair. This is making me exceedingly cross. He looks cute and would fit right if if this was a gathering of bankers.

  • Judy_J

    Isn’t he just the cutest thing? 

  • Trisha26

    Shall we all chip in for a stylist for Jessica? His looks a little funereal and unkempt to me.

  • nannypoo

    This is a new low for her. I don’t think she’s ever looked worse. If I were a designer I would not lend her my clothes.

  • What’s that bitch doing with my pretend boyfriend?

    Oh, yeah, her dress. Meh.

  • unbornfawn

    He looks good. The suit fits beautifully, clearly HE has gays. She, either doesn’t or refused to listen to them. She’s a washed out mess.

  • nowlo

    That yellow is precisely the worst shade for a pale redhead. 

  • quiltrx

    It looks like Stella has designed a line of full-body lace pasties in the least-flattering colors possible.

  • decormaven

    It’s sad when dress fabric evokes plastic upholstery covers. I’d spring for a pop of color in a pocket square for his look. 

  • Gorgeous people in bad clothes.

  • understateddiva

    After seeing her in this editorial – http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2012/10/jessica-chastain-for-crash-magazine.html, I can’t give her a pass for not looking chic.  I think she actually looks BETTER in more unusual fashions.  If she would show up on a red carpet with some Hepburn menswear realness going on, I would love it! 

  • RzYoung

    I have issues with his sideburns

  • LeifBallard

    Is it me or does that dress make her look wider?

  • EEKstl

    He looks quite dashing. Me HATES that there is illusion netting over her right shoulder, couldn’t it just follow the line of the lace and let her shoulder be bare?  What is with this sudden trend to have illusion netting as a fashion accessory?

  • The lighting in these pictures is beyond horrible.

  • marilyn

    Her dress is interesting, but the color is wrong.  I don’t know what color would be better, but this one is pretty horrible on her.  She has alabaster skin and is a red head.  She needs to wear delicate colors.  School bus yellow is too much for her.
