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…

    • Great minds think alike.

    • 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!

    • 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.

  • 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!”

    • 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?

    •  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…..

  • 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?

    •  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.

    • I would pay good money to see that.

  • 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.

  • 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! ”

  • 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. 

    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

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

  • 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!


    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. 

  • 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?

  • 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!

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

  • 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.
