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?

    • 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.

    • 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


  • 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.

      •  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.

  • 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.

    * Homeless shelter

  • That jacket is WAAAAY too big. 

  • Vlasta Bubinka

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

  • 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…. 

  • 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.

      • 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!

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

  • Violina23

    Oh, but those eyes work OH so well… 😛

  • He just needs clogs to be a little Dutch Boy.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Ick not at all!

  • l_c_ann

    Hey, Jude,

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

  • 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?!

  • 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?
