Jude Law at ‘Side Effects’ Photocall

Posted on February 15, 2013

We wanted to like this for having a sort of Euro-breezy chic thing going on.


Jude Law attends the ‘Side Effects’ Photocall during the 63rd Berlinale International Festival.

But upon further examination, it just looks sloppy and too big. It’s like Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp at the Cannes Film Festival. Not working for us at all, Jude.

      I groaned at the first photo. If your borrowed clothes look this bad, don’t borrow clothes, goddamn.

      • Fordzo

        Yeah.  If you’re Jude Law and your borrowed clothes look this bad, just show up naked.  We won’t mind.  

        • lovelyivy

           I regret that I have but one like to give…

    • imperfectlaura

      It looks like the result of a one-day menswear PR challenge.

      What exactly is he looking at? Oh and that outfit is just ridiculous.

      • 3boysful

         Seriously–why is he looking up and off to the corners?

        Also, a little over-zealous hemming of the pants, no?

      • http://twitter.com/herong Heron

        Well-fitting wool suits, wistfully.  

      • Alyssa

        I keep wanting to scream “get your chin out of the air”…you know, the way I wanted to at the snobby high school girls who walked around like that all day.

      • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

        Since it is a photo call, there are probably screaming photogs up there trying to get his attention.

    • ChaCha_70

      I agree with your opinion but those baby blues in the second shot make me forgive him. Damn you Jude, the things you do to me. *sigh*

      • RebeccaKW

         I know.  When he was younger, I thought he was a pretty guy, but he never really did anything for me.  But now, man oh man.  Sign me up.

        • Fordzo

          I know they are not related, but I always feel like he is the younger, unnecessary brother of Ewan McGregor.  You know, like that sibling that will never be as cool/hot/sexy/hip as their brother and you feel kinda sorry for him?

          • RebeccaKW

             I’m sorry, I quit reading after “Ewan McGregor” and have been lost in daydreams of him.  What were you saying?

          • PeaceBang

            Like a Baldwin brother?

            • Fordzo


    • http://twitter.com/TheRealAndra Andra

      What the heck is he looking at?

      • Fordzo

        He’s searching the crowd for me. 

        • RebeccaKW

           So he can ask you where I am.

          • Fordzo

            Because he wants to be sure he and I are really alone, or if you’re coming back from the restroom.

            • RebeccaKW

              Because he’s ready to go home with me and needs to know if you need cab fare. 

            • Fordzo

              And then I remember he banged Sienna Miller (more than once, and it would appear he was sober on some of those occasions) and I decide you can have this one. Don’t forget a full-body condom. But I’ll accept the cab fare!

    • FancyPhilly

      Looks like he was shopping at Old Navy, remembered he had a “thing”, ran home and popped on the blazer hanging by the door that may or may not have been left at his place the last time he had a party at his place.

    • tony_q

      Navy jacket with grey pants… and that’s the starting point.

    • Sam Corbett

      I actually quite like the jacket, but the pants need to fit a LOT better to make it look… well, like a “look” rather than just clothes.

      • Lisa_Cop

        But that jacket, all the wrinkling, is not fitting:((

    • Janet B

      If I don’t make eye contact, no one will notice that my clothes don’t fit.

      • ChaquitaPhilly

        Wow! I thought that was MY trick!

    • In_Stitches

      Too big and yet the buttons on the jacket are still pulling.  It’s just poorly constructed clothing in this case.

    • PeggyOC

       No!  Dark blue with black (especially in this incarnation) is a big no.  This looks like he got dressed in the dark, pulling whatever he could find off the floor.  The jacket and the trousers aren’t even the same color.  I’m not saying he can’t wear separates, but that these aren’t separate enough to not look like a mistake.

      • kschwarting

        Exactly.  My mother, who always has to ask whether something is navy or black, would be cringing at this–it’s such an obvious mismatch.

        • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

           I don’t mind the suit mismatch. The pants have cuffs, so he obviously meant for them to be short. I think the v-neck sweater is what’s throwing everything off. Too non-descript to match. He needed white or one more shade of black maybe for the shirt.

    • JoAnna Nicholson

      Jude has been trying to do all of these trendy looks that only 20 somethings can pull off.  He needs to take a page out of Daniel Craig’s book and stick with basic men’s wear pieces.

    • mjude

      wtf is with the pants?

    • Rand Ortega

      *Sigh*. Yeah.

    • plinkiedoodle

      What a mess! Jude, you’re a darling man. So look it, mister!

    • RoxieRider

      It might’ve worked better with less dainty-looking shoes.

    • call_me_schmeg

      can i say that i go between loving and loathing that forehead front-runner tuft of hair he has hanging on there? 

    • MissMariRose

      I can’t help but harshly judge a man who wears a v-neck t-shirt as being a bit of a douche. This does not help.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Do they make a double-breasted woman’s blazer?  Apparently, they do. And Jude here is sporting it. 

    • tereliz

      This might pass for slept-in Euro chic but only if he wasn’t wearing socks. 😉

      Seriously, though is someone skywriting “Ich liebe dich, JUDE!” above the photo call? 

    • Scoobydrew

      Jude, whenever I have something a little wrinkly I just take it over to my Mom’s house. She has an iron. She’d probably help you too.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1540233153 Malve Lyborg

      No one would wear this, not even in Berlin… 

    • TAGinMO

      He really seems to have lost his way lately, sartorially speaking.

    • alyce1213

      WTF?  Surely he was rolling around drunk in the dumpster outside an Obdachlosenheim* in Berlin before the photo call. 
      Or maybe this is a joke, right?
      He’s always seemed like milquetoast to me and now he’s just douchey.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      That jacket is WAAAAY too big. 

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Feels like a staring into space slo-mo montage for a Coldplay song…

    • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

      All he’s missing is a Top Chef logo on that jacket.

    • Belvane

      Yes, this is unfortunate, but I never really care what he’s wearing, because that face, that FACE…. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13953311 Missy Covington

      So…he got hair plugs, right? I’m not criticizing, I’m just remembering him as quickly being more autumn-in-new-england up there and now he’s all stand-of-new-jersey-pines. Is it just my imagination?

      • Lisa_Cop

        You’re right! I remember more hair and a more gorgeous face.

        • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

          He’s always had a widow’s peak, just google his pics from 20 years ago. He also used to have fuller lips. Now he’s just added male pattern balding and his skin is less elastic because he’s 40. Only making him sexier in my eyes!

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      I like it. Or possibly I just like him. Who can tell. 

    • Violina23

      Oh, but those eyes work OH so well… 😛

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      He just needs clogs to be a little Dutch Boy.

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      LIKE A FINE WINE. Hate the clothes, but those baby blues make me weak at the knees.

      • Lilak

        Oh my yes.  Not that I, too, am like a fine wine – heh – but I’ve long since outgrown Dickie Greenleaf.  JL is just fine as he is at any given moment.

        • Lisa_Cop

          Ah, I can never forget Dickie Greenleaf. Made Matt Damon’s Ripley forgettable.

    • julnyes

      He is not living up to his fullest potential. 

    • Carla_Charlton

      It just looks random…

    • kimmeister

      At least he doesn’t have neck beard.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Did he wake up, hop in the shower, and throw on whatever he found lying on the floor?  Oof.

    • nannypoo

      What is he looking at. A bird? A plane? Superman? These pictures are idiotic, and I hate the jacket. I don’t like the pants or the t-shirt much either.

    • Snailstsichr

      None of this even vaguely goes together. And – is that a rolled up tie in his pocket?  Did he lose his shirt? I can only hope one of my fellow BKs found it in a heap in the boudoir.

    • http://twitter.com/ceitfianna Kate K. F.

      The angle of some of these photographs is really odd and not helping with the outfit. He’s a tall man and the suit doesn’t look fitted and is rumpled. Its a shame because  some of the details are lovely, the color of the shirt is great for him and I want to see more of the pocket square, even the suit material would look better if it were ironed and not in that cut.

       *sigh* Overall, its a shame as he’s one of my favorite actors to look at and he tends to go either all beautifully suited or scruffy on purpose and both work, this in between doesn’t.

    • warnerave

      i hate the coat!

    • margaret meyers

      No designer attached to this mess?  I suppose Jude has to take all the responsibility for looking like he lost his luggage and had to wear stuff given to him by other travelers.

    • Trisha26

      Shoes too long, pants too short, jacket too short & too big – with a V-neck T-shirt and a neck beard. What’s not to like?

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Okay, so now I don’t have to post, because you just said everything I was going to say!  Except also – the jacket and pants don’t match either, and he looks totally rumpled.  He looks like he woke up too late and just threw on whatever he could find.

    • OrigamiRose

      Did he lose his luggage and the airline just threw together some items from the unclaimed luggage locker?

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      I can read his mind in the second shot.  “This is the last time I get dressed in the dark.”

    • MilaXX

      Too sloppy, all the pieces are fighting each other.  This outfit looks like he’s trying too hard to appear effortless instead of actually being effortless.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=805505 Steph Foster

      Ick not at all!

    • l_c_ann

      Hey, Jude,

      If you paid for a jacket that was made with interlining, you were robbed.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      I didn’t know they made unconstructed double-breasted. But I forgive him, because wrinkles are still comfortable.

    • kathrineb

      When you are rich and famous why not get things altered/tailored to fit you?!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001998855370 Fatima Siddique

      That pocket square looks like a rolled up tie. 

    • Susan Crawford

      The trousers look as though he is wearing a pair of long johns underneath. The jacket is ill-fitting. What is the purpose of the weird pocket square that looks entirely random? Make a BIT of an effort, Mr. Law – please!

    • ccm800

      I like it but what the HELL is he looking up at?  

    • boweryboy

      The pants are what bug me the most. I get what he’s going for, but when you’re trying to do the cuffed highwater pants looks those pants sure as hell better be tapered and tailored.

    • Lisa_Cop

      You’re handsome and you’re Jude Law. But NOBODY should look like this. For God’s sake at least some longer pants and move some buttons in that hideous double breasted jacket.

    • guest2visits

      This assortment he’s wearing is almost a style or fashion unto itself. It’s a cross between preppy slacker and hipster.
      Or maybe it’s just I-don’t-care-hobo.  Is that a tie rolled up in his breast pocket?  Still giving wonderful attitude, though.

    • bd73

      isn’t his ex a fashion designer? don’t they have like four kids together? how he could he not learn better?
