Pairs Division: Goodwin and Dallas

Posted on February 20, 2013

Let’s skip the scoring just this once and salute these two for one thing:


Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas attend the 2013 Costume Designers Guild Awards. Ginnifer Goodwin wears a Misha Nonoo dress paired with a Roger Vivier clutch. Josh Dallas wears a Z Zegna suit.

Misha Nonoo Spring 2013 Collection

Posing. They clearly spent HOURS in their bedroom, practicing in front of a mirror. They deserve some attention for it.

“Okay honey, now… POSE. Raise your chin! Put your arm around me! That’s it! Blue Steel! Blue Steel! Now make a little fist! Everyone is looking at us! Everyone is jealous of us! Good! Now, squint!”

      she has schooled him in bitchface basics. 

      • mike__tv

        Bitchface for begginers:
        1) Do look like you’ve got wind blowing in your face
        2) Pretend everyone is naked, and just farted.
        3) Smize, you have a secret and you’re not telling.

        • JosephLamour

           Wow, that really all works. LOL

    • DaveUWSNYC

      He Blue Stole my heart…

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      LOL!!!  But the sad thing is, they look great and they ruined it by not smiling and posing like wax figures!

      • NinaBoo

        Wax figures. That explains their matching lipstick. I mean lip color.

      • DTLAFamilies

        His pants are perfectly hemmed and the dress is great on her, color and cut. Sighing for lost opportunities.

    • Stubenville

      Upside down burqa.

    • imperfectlaura

      Something about his leg/face posing combo in these pictures makes me think he’s getting ready to take a dump. And now that I’ve seen that, I can’t unsee it.

      • 3boysful

         To me, the first photo looks like he’s planning to dash off and fight crime as soon as the shutter has clicked.

        • Tadiana

          Or dragons. With a sword.

    • margaret meyers

      Hopeless or helpless, I can’t decide.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      They look totally constipated.  I’ll go stew some prunes.

    • savicevic

      I love her, but her vamping on the red carpet kills me. Like, I think she’s worst than Lea Michele when it comes to the RC.

      • Sara__B

         Of course!

      • mike__tv

        He’s worse than she is. I’m sure their lovely people but my god, has no one told them to just stop with this?

    • EverybodysStarling

      I really love OUAT, but he totally looks like a douche. 

    • charlotte

      Girl, that will never be your hair.

      • mshesterp

        And it’s time FOR A CHANGE.  You can’t do that pixie forever.  Mix it up a bit, lady!  She’s just not pulling it off as well as Anne H. is, and it’s time to move on to bigger and better ‘do’s.

    • Janet B

      Kinda adorable.

    • l_c_ann

      It’s a shame that satin finish really highlights dresses that are several inches too tight across her boobage. 
      But for that, she looks good. 
      Well, except for his attitude and posture.

    • Scimommy

      He must have used the same make-up artist as Benedict Cumberbatch at the Globes. She might have too, but it’s a little less jarring on her. I do like the dress on her.

      • Tatiana Luján

        I would love to see some Benedict Cumberbatch post in TLo. 

        • Scimommy

          Hello and welcome, fellow Cumbertrain passenger! TLo do throw us a bone once in a while. Plus, BC is about to do a ton of public appearances for Star Trek, so he’ll probably grace these blessed pages more than once in the coming months.

          • Tatiana Luján

            I am also on the Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage train. Still waiting for ine of their bones to be thrown by Tlo.

            • Elizabeth Silverstein

              Martin is adorable – he will always be Tim from the Office to me… Cumberbatch is awesome, but other than his voice he doesn’t light my pants on fire. Armitage, DOES IT FOR ME. Mr. Thornton or Thorin – either way. Yummmy.

            • formerlyAnon

              Yes. By all precedent, Cumberbatch ought to be in my wheelhouse, but he inexplicably is locked out. Except for his voice, which does waft enticingly through the windows.

          • krelnick

            Don’t hold your breath!  TLo don’t like him so we’ll have to rely on the TumblrNerds for pics.  Unless, of course, he happens to be in the proximity of Eddie Redmayne or Matt Smith…

            • Tatiana Luján

              I’m not that much of a Cumberbitch, but maybe, as Elizabeth said, with the Star Trek poledancing he appears in some post.

    • lrober03

      I liked the dress better before I realized there were sheer panels at the bottom

    • SugarSnap108

      It’s like they’re trying to make us laugh at them.  They have succeeded. 

    • Jaeda Laurez

      She’s giving fierce face, in a sexy sister-wife dress. These two things do not go together. Don’t get me wrong- i like what she’s wearing, although it could have used some accessories- but the attitude does not match the clothes.

    • hmariec19

      That is A LOT of eyebrow pencil.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        And the wrong color, too.

    • missnutkin

      dress needs a belt

    • crash1212

      It’s a shame you aren’t scoring as I think this might be a personal best for Ginnifer. Although the eyebrows are WAY over the top, I think this dress is great on her. The posing, however, is ridiculous.

    • Kate4queen

      it’s like Barbie and Ken all over again.

    • blondie707

      UGH. She looks so cute when she smiles, yet she always pulls bitchface.

      Looking at his face annoys me on an irrational level. THE SMUG.

      • Alyssa

        I know! Why hasn’t she learned that yet! And yes, he totally reeks of smug.

    • Beardslee

      What I noticed first was how well these clothes fit them.  Nothing is too tight or too long.

    • stellamaris73

      Are they wearing the same color of liptint?

      The posing is so awkward and contrived. Still, I like her dress. For her, maybe a personal best. It’s simple and less fashion-victimy than usual.

      • barbarienne

         I asked myself the same question about their lips.

        I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the men are doing makeup, too, but I’m stodgy enough to want to draw the line at lip color. Or at least lip color that’s as obvious as his.

        (Note: men doing full-out “I am wearing makeup” obvious levels of color are a different category. But if a guy is trying to do the “natural face” look, then IMO the makeup should be invisible.)

    • Judy_J

      I’m hearing Madonna’s “Vogue” playing in my head right now.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Those androids of Ginnifer and Josh are ALMOST convincing.

      • Sara__B

         It’s a shame the androids weren’t given animation in their faces. They’d look almost human if their faces moved!

        • Kiltdntiltd

          I guess it was all they could do to get them to be able to pose so well. The subtleties of facial expressivity must be technically beyond them, as yet.

    • Dot

      HAHAHA. I think she’s been taking tips from J-Lo on bitchface techniques. I do like this dress on her, but all I can look at is her ridiculous face. Also, what’s been going on with her makeup lately?  She always looks like she’s trying WAY too hard.

    • julnyes

      He looks like a waxworks mannequin.

    • Cheryl Kohs

      That was my bridesmaid dress in my first wedding, approximately 28 years ago.  Color was a darker red, but awfully close.  I chose tea length.  Everything old is new again!

    • Zippypie

      She must have the same makeup artist as Ryan Seacrest’s gf what’s-her-name – they have the same painted on magic eyebrows in the same color.

      That aside, this is probably a best look for her in a long time.  It’s not the usual wtf, it’s a great color and it’s simple.  Needs a belt or something else to elevate it, but it’s not bad.

      He looks fairly nice sans makeup (what’s with the lip color?) but why are his fists clenched in every shot?  Afraid some pap is going to call you out on your posing?

    • Aly Light

      Is it just me, or do they look like they’re setting up to do a magician act? Him in the tux with the melodramatic face, her in the red dress– he can saw her in half! She can blindfold him, and he’ll pin her long dress to a board with throwing knives!

    • butterflysunita

      I like the original dress on the model so much better.  I love the contrasting colors and I think the style works better in a short dress.  

    • dorothea_brooke

      She looks pretty good for someone clearly in the throes of a migraine.  

    • Therese Bohn

      What’s that garbage can behind them? ;-)

    • B_C_J

      The posing does not bother me.  That said, his tuxedo fits him beautifully if perhaps a tad tight in the armholes given that the sleeves are wrinkled. Nonetheless, he looks GOOD.  Her dress is lovely in its simplicity and the color is delicious. I would agree that a belt would have done wonders and perhaps softening the eyebrows. However, she looks great too. 

    • Stella Zawistowski

      I’m reminded of last night’s episode of “The Face.”

    • mjude


    • kaycem

      they both look so fierce, but i can’t with her brows.  not even a little.

    • Mazenderan

      For some reason, I feel like she needs nail polish with that dress.  The colour is so extreme that bare nails just look unfinished beside it.

      Also, possibly the most aggravating facial expressions ever pulled in the entire history of the world.  Let’s face it, you’d avoid this couple.

      • formerlyAnon

        I blush to admit it, but at my senior prom he would have been one of the smart, awkward boys I was friends with. Probably through theater. None of my girl friends would have pulled those faces, though.

    • Elizabeth Silverstein

      He is totally wearing the shit out of that suit, to bad it looks like he is also about to take a shit in it.

    • marlie

      Cute little dress on her, but a) it’s too wrinkled, and b) I can still see that she’s wearing silly-putty peep-toe pumps. AGH.

      Her hair and makeup look good.

      He looks good too, but is it just me or are his pants a little snug in the – um, – crotch area?

      • MilaXX

         I think she fine, but maybe a small stud?

    • meowing

      Heavens, you’re young, rich, wearing a gazillion in free clothes, and this is as happy as you can get?  They look totally mierable both together and separately. 

    • f_yeah_marie

      Blech, I can’t stand her.  He, on the other hand, looks good.

    • ankali

      The posing is douchey, but it’s a shame that y’all didn’t acknowledge that she has almost NEVER looked this good. Personal best IMO.

    • MinAgain

      She is so pretty.  I love her in the red dress.

    • Nancer

      Is he really wearing lipstick? Wow. On the plus side, I love this dress on her.

    • Sara__B

      Since he seems to have borrowed her facial expression and lip color, I’m thankful he didn’t borrow her eyebrow pencil as well.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I find the sheer on her dress odd. I would have loved it without the sheer and a belt. Face is flawless. 

    • BaddestMotherEver

      I would love to see a picture of her laughing at herself.  Maybe she will burst into a murder of crows if that ever were to happen.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty


      He also shouldn’t borrow her lipstick, it’s not his color.

      • MilaXX

         *snicker* I think he has naturally pigmented lips, however a dab of concealer would fix that.

    • jw_ny

      haha.  As humorous as it is tho, it’s so much better seeing good posing than so many of the others that have no clue what to do with their arms, legs, eyes, etc…

      they both look really good.

    • DinahR

      They look handsome, cute and a little silly.  Brava, darlings.   

      Love her outfit but, Question: did her eyebrows maybe go a step too far?  I have noticed eyebrows getting bolder and more defined lately. Is this a thing now and is this how its done?  

    • Erin

      I hate taffeta.

    • pookiesmom

      I think they look really good, actually. Legitimately!

    • MilaXX

      lol! I like this on her, even though I believe those are silly putty open toe pumps. I can’t tell if his jacket is a skoosh tight or night. Overall despite the silly poses, I think they look pretty good. I kinda wish she had embraced a retro look and worn the short version with a killer pointy toe shoe.

    • formerlyAnon

      They look VERY prom. I think it’s mostly him. 

    • XPT

      Who. Are. These. People.

    • decormaven

      Is it Prom Night?

    • libraangel

      Best I have seen Ginnifer look in a LONG time. Both o.k., actually. But what is up with the runway look: sneakers? really?

      • PaulaBerman

        Is it supposed to be a tennis dress?

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Hers is the classic “CAN’T. BREATHE” pose favored by many lady stars in overly tight, unforgiving dress tops.

      His is the classic “in my mind, I am James Bond and y’all wanna sleep with me” face. Oh, honey.

    • Call me Bee

      Yeah–and their posing is very annoying.  It’s a shame as they both look pretty good.  Love the red.  

    • Anniebet

      Hate. Her. Hair.

    • teensmom99

      Feeling generous today so (1) she has never looked better and (2) they get points for dressing for the same event.  So a little unfair not to score them.

    • drdirection


    • MissMapp

      Chord Overstreet wants his mouth back.

    • PaulaBerman

      They both have the crazy eyes in overdrive.

    • aristida_girl

      hahaha! love it… I can just see the “practice shots” they must have taken to get it just right…I imagine some feature tears of pain and frustration for not being able to get the poses down perfectly after the first 20 hours…

    • Damien W

      Both of their make-up jobs scream “SILENT MOVIE”.  It’s like they stayed home and sent their Madame Tussaud’s wax figures instead.

      And yet I want him. He’s a much prettier boy than she is.

      • Lilak

        Yeah … I was thinking marionettes.

    • joancarol

      He stands like he has swollen balls.

    • elzatelzabelz

      They forgot to practice “Smile.” Why doesn’t she ever smile?

      • libraangel

        Doing an imitation of Victoria Beckham

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      The posing and the clenching are HILARIOUS!!  These two really need to go get massages or something.

    • heidi1201

      Why the hell is he doing the “Angelina leg pose” in the first pic?  Just sling it on out there, Charming!  And her? She reminds me of Norma Desmond….major crazy face in every pic she takes.

    • Gus Casals

      His posing maybe due to too tight pants. Is it a VPL i see there?

      • libraangel

        Do you mean pant or penis? HA HA

    • Sarah Bailey

      Ridiculous. These.two.look.ridiculous.

    • JosephLamour

       I’ve never been attracted to him till I saw him in this suit. How about that.

    • BPlease

      Reading fashion blogs and seeing Goodwin’s attitude and posing has totally ruined her as an actress for me – so charmless and uptight and smug-seeming.  Millionth verse, same as the first with this set of pics – they both look like dicks (dicks wearing a little too much base and brow pencil).  Anne with an E Hathaway would look at these pictures and tell them both to try a little less. 

    • kathrineb

      While we are on the subject of there posing- The first picture of Dallas is funny to me so thanks for the mild amusement Josh Dallas!

    • schoep

      So so so so awkward.

    • courtneu

      you guys are mean. ginny is so beautiful.
