Catherine Zeta-Jones in LA

Posted on January 23, 2013

Like many a queen, we just ADORE a good “rich bitch” look. And Miss Catherine is serving it all up on a silver platter.


Catherine Zeta Jones arrives at LAX.

We are now firmly convinced they should reboot Dynasty and she should play Alexis. Is this not a perfect 21st C. Alexis look? Of course the classic Alexis would never deign to wear skinny pants, but it’s a new era, darlings. A new era for bitchiness.

No, really. It’s such a great, chic little outfit. We approve.

      I just don’t like her pilgrim hat…

      • Sarah Caponigro

        Great minds think alike.

      • Carla Axtman

        Ding! Nailed it.

      • Melizmatic

         It’s the buckle; it ruins the chic effect the hat could have had.

      • tmchale

        It doesn’t go well with her face; it takes up too much attention when the glasses are gone.

      • kategs

        Hats like that make you look snooty even if you’re not.  It’s silly the way she has to tip her head back just to see!

      • Kate Gorton

        They could always reboot Dynasty for the 16th century, and she could STILL play Alexis. Serving some John Carver realness. 

      • tereliz

        That’s what I was just going to say, too. Glad we’re all on the same page here. Or is it a rock? Plymouth Rock?

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        Coming soon to Sears: The Miles Standish Collection, featuring accessories by Cotton Mather!

    • GorgeousThings

      Other than the hat, I’m good with the whole outfit. Is that an Hermes bag? I LUST for it, whatever it is!

      • Laurie Bergman

        The hardware looks like Ferragamo…and I join you in that lust!

      • shopgirl716

        The bag is to die.

    • Sarah Caponigro

      Pilgrim Hat.

    • Sobaika

      Great look but is that John Smith’s hat?

    • GorgeousThings

      PS, the flight attendant behind her is so cute! That would be me – “Oh boy, I’m walking behind Catherine Zeta Jones and the paparazzi are firing away. Hi Mom!”

      • Bob Sponge

        And I love her luggage. Like a delicious over-sized macarons.

    • anne.landre

      She has inspired “stranger hate” in me from the first.  Is it my bias, or are her hands looking old?

      • MajorBedhead

         Hands are one of the few places where you can’t really hide your age. Unless someone invents a hand-lift, which I’m sure is coming.

    • DaringMiss

      Sorry TLo.  I have to disagree.  The outfit is just weird looking to me.  The scarf just isn’t sitting right in the neckline of the jacket.

      • tmchale

        But that was the only flaw. Everything else was good.

    • lexilexi

      I never knew she had such skinny legs.  

      • SassieCassy

        dancers always retain great legs no matter what else happens.

      • Kristin McNamara

        And those skinny skinny pants look to have the signature swoopy sheer cutouts style of Althea Harper. I mean, I doubt they are. But I wonder!

        • Connie Harbor

           I believe they are jodphurs…

    • leftcoastpickle

      She just needs buckles on the boots to match. I hate this entire outfit, I think it makes her look old and weird.

    • another_laura

      I want that entire outfit.  STAT

      CTZ flies commercial?  Alexis wouldn’t.

    • EEKstl

      You nailed it.  Who else should we cast?  

    • LittleKarnak

      My thoughts exactly! Loveit all except that pilgrim hat buckle…..

    • Ka T

      Meh.  For me, it’s not coming together the way it should.  The leggings a look like one of those high-end running pants.  The neck treatment- is it a scarf?  Is it a jabot?  Are either a good choice?  And while I love a good sport jacket with gold buttons, this one is a fug jacket that happens to have gold buttons.  Maybe chic from a distance, but gross up close.

      • AmeliaEve

         That is actually what I like about it. This is not an ensemble. It’s just clothes. It’s ordinary separates, kicked up maybe just half a notch. It’s unselfconscious and comfortable, but totally appropriate. I have a lot more to learn from an outfit like this than from some on-loan couture stuff put together by a stylist.

    • MilaXX

      Funny you should say that because my first impression was she’s serving Alexis Carrington realness.

      • Guidosdaddy

         Pretty sure she has complete control of Carrington oil and is going to let the board know so…

    • kimmeister

      The subtle design on her thighs seems random.  She is such a gorgeous woman, but man did she have a deer-in-the-headlights look while presenting at the Golden Globes.  The past few years have been difficult for her.

    • Karen Maslowski

      Are those riding pants?

      She looks every inch the wealthy Mrs. Douglas. 

    • StellaZafella

      In the 80’s, in San Francisco, there was a woman who parked her immaculately restored vintage bronze Jaguar XKE at the Russ Building in the financial district and the license plates read: “RCH BCH”

      Ms. Zeta Jones, here, could be that woman. 

      But who would play Krystal C?

      • Susie Queue

         I kind of want to get that and put it on my ’97 Honda Civic hatchback.

        • Aurumgirl

           I want to get that and put it on my crumbly ’73 Pinto Wagon. 

      • H3ff

        Kate Hudson? She’d need some serious hair volumising treatments / wig, though.

    • alyce1213

      I’d pay to see a rich bitch throwdown between Madames Zeta-Jones and Hayak, side by side. 
      I do like the way she looks, for what it is — except that hat buckle is killing me.

      • Heather

        I would pay good money to see that.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Oh my gosh, I love the hat. I think it makes the whole look!

    • jonnyf8

      Thank goodness, Delta Burke finally found a diet that worked!  Beautiful!

    • Sarah Thomas

      That is one foxy Pilgrim.

    • gillian holroyd

      It’s a very *mature* look.

      • formerlyAnon

         Yes. I didn’t believe it was her, at first, because this woman looks too old to be 43. Especially a rich 43 in an appearance conscious industry. Though, as an earlier poster remarked, it’s been a difficult couple of years for her.

        • tallgirl1204

          I think it would have looked much younger without the scarf.

        • PeaceBang

          I’m part of the Conspiracy Theory crowd who refuses to believe that CZJ is only 43.

        • 3boysful

          I would’ve believed it was Raquel Welch, who is some 20 yrs her senior (albeit with a lot of work).

    • Annabelle Archer

      Do you remember the movie Soapdish? Something about this is giving me the mall scene vibe. Very, “Oh? Who me? A movie star, caught unaware? Oh my! ”

    • Tanya Wade

      Like something out of a Judith Krantz novel….love it.

    • par3182

      I don’t care about the outfit…all I can think of now is the idea of rebooting ‘Dynasty’ with CZJ. Somebody make that happen!!

    • carpediva

      YES! I swear, I was literally wracking my brain for Alexis’ full name even BEFORE I scrolled down and saw you guys were getting the same vibe here.  Because totally, here comes Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan!

    • Call me Bee

      Cute stylish and wonderfully practical for flying. 

      • Katrin

        Flying in first class, of course. I couldn’t imagine attempting to cross the ocean in skinny years and a hat back in economy class!

    • myristica_fragrans

      equestrian pilgrim.

    • marlie

      She annoys me to no end, but she looks fabulously chic here. 

    • shnaggi

      Salma Hayek still reigns supreme, Zeta-Jones looses points for overstuffing the Purse, sporting Jodphurs and the Pilgrim Hat.

    • Lilak

      Enjoying the drama of the disappearing/reappearing hatband buckle!   

    • Bill Curtis

      You beat me to it! I saw the first picture and thought, how did she go from PYT/sex-bomb to Joan Collins so quickly? It took her 15 yrs to go the route many stars go over the course of 30.

      • baxterbaby

        I always thought she was a lovely woman who aged herself with makeup and clothing.  Without much makeup, she has a very young, soft face.  I find her to be the opposite of mutton dressed as lamb.  And if she is 43, that means Michael Douglas is 68.  

    • DeTrop

      She was one of the worlds most beautiful women. She had work done and it shows.  I noticed it at the Golden Globes and on TV when she made the rounds.  She has that tight, stressed look that is aging.  She used to have a fresh, soft look.
      Love the outfit btw. Top to bottom.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      In order for this look to work, there has to be no sense of uncertainty or insecurity in her as can be seen in picture 5.  It has to be 100% detached superiority, but yea, she looks fantastic!  Queen of Wales.  

    • RzYoung

      Fab-u-lous! Imagine her and Salma in a fight?!

      • sleah in norcal

        cat fight in the first class cabin!

    • Aurumgirl

      Of course.  She’s the Queen of Wales.  

    • decormaven

      You all can fight over the bag; I’ll take the rings whilst you scuffle. 

    • Howard

      not quite …. I like the bag an the hat…. the pants ,jacket an shoes  don’t look very expensive but am sure they are.

    • Rhonda Shore

      I covet that bag…

    • Linda Dodson

      the buckle on the hat makes her look like a pilgrim

    • miagain

      I hate her hat…. everything else is swell!

    • Judy_J

      The flight attendant behind her on the escalator evidently approves as well!

    • TRSTL

      I know it is probably a great outfit but she just bugs.  And in the first shot I couldn’t make out the shape of the hat and my first thought bas “Vintage flight attendent”.  Sorry…….

    • luciaphile

      I love the hat, glasses, and scarf. The coat isn’t working for me. I think it’s because it’s double breasted and it’s making her look disproportionately large on top. 

    • jennyv

      Oh my god, she would make an amazing Alexis!

    • suzanne77

      Joan Collins was once in talks to have a movie made of her life, she suggested a then not-well-known actress named Catherine Zeta-Jones for the role. I mean, truly. It would be a casting coup!

    • neofashionista

      I COVET that BAG

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      I loved it unreservedly until I saw the Pilgrim Buckle on the hat, which is just plain silly. Otherwise, she looks as fabulous as she is!

      • sleah in norcal

        my first thought:  is she landing at plymouth rock?

    • Ann Martina

      I would love to see her play Ava Gardner

    • melanie0866

      Yes, she looks like a chic, sophisticated SEVENTY-YEAR-OLD WOMAN.  She’s not old enough to start dressing like Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan!

    • guest2visits

      For a moment I thought she stepped out of an Austin Powers movie; this is highly dramatic for an airplane departure.
      It’s so …  not casual.  Maybe if she lost the hat it would look less cold and aloof. Not.

      • UglyTalents

         This is exactly how I look when I step off a plane.

        • guest2visits

          Then you are a star! congrats on your next film or perfectly respectable small screen appearance!

    • CJ Michalak

      i feel like she’s channeling Victoria Beckham here.  and I’m TOTALLY ok w/that

    • Roxanne Pedro

      What the hell?!  She looks like the offspring of a pilgrim and a fop. Hahaha…I’m sorry, she looks ridiculous. Lose the hat and get the coat a size smaller, and she’d be in business.
