  • Jessi03

    Wow.  She is seriously gorgeous.

    • Kristin McNamara

      He’s not so bad himself… but (get ready to feel insanely creepy) he’s the cute little kid Hugh Grant takes under his wing in About A Boy! Can you believe that?! I looked at these photos, thought he looked kinda familiar, IMDB-ed him, and…. *mind.blown* I mean, except for the neckbeard, cutie growed up good!

      • MilaXX

         that’s him. He has a bunch of movies coming out. He’s also in the zombie flick Warm Bodies.

      • JosephLamour

         Hes also he main character in Skins S1-3. The stuff he does in that show…. lord. LOL

        •  Yes!  I LOVE BBC’s Skins! Hubby and I affectionately nicknamed it “Teenage Whores.”

          • Derek_anny

             How did you distinguish it from the rest of television?

          • julnyes

            well written teenage whores


      • kimmeister

        Holy crappity crap!

      • berkeleygirl

        Does it make you feel better that he was also Colin Firth’s object of desire in A Single Man?

  • that dress is stunning on her.
    suit is great on him, but omg: neckbeard, hands in pockets, and the jacket sleeves are just a bit too short.

  • mozzer0906

    I love that dress with her hair color, she looks stunning.  I don’t care for the knit tie with such a nice suit and his hem needs to come up a bit (and get his hands out of his pockets).  

    Her:  8.5 (a few points off for the messy hair and the matchy clutch)  I’m not sure what the heck is going on under her arms, but I’m going to go with genetics and give her a pass for it.

    Him: 8.5 (for the tie, the hem and the hand in the pocket)

    Average: 8.5

    • anne.landre

      I think there is a small mesh panel running underneath her arms that is causing that bulge.  The bodice is too small.

  • yaby

    something terrible is happening at her armpits…

    • schadenfreudelicious

      my eye was immediately drawn there, is there some type of fabric or band that we can’t see that is causing that to happen??

    • raininmai

       That, according to my gyn, is breast tissue and it can happen to some of us who are amply endowed, like me and my daughter. I have to make sure that my sleeveless tops have narrower arm openings. :::sigh:::

      • call_me_schmeg

        or, this might also be the result of some painfully deployed boob tape or chicken cutlets in order to get that perky oomph that she’s rocking mightily. i helped a friend once wrangle her boobs in a similar manner for a halloween costume and i can see how this armpit thing could easily happen. 

        • Indigo54

           What?  That’s funniest thing I’ve ever heard.  Chicken cutlets – LOL!   Boob wrangling – ROFL!!!!

          • call_me_schmeg

            indeed. if you don’t have boobs of your own to wrangle, might as well corral someone else’s tatas. 

        • therealkuri

          Yeah, this seems most likely to me, since the line of the dress is actually a bit below the strangeness. Pity, because until I noticed this, everything was gorgeous and wonderful, and now my eyes can’t look anywhere else.

      • Indigo54

         Breast tissue?  Amply endowed women?  Oh.   Well I have nuthin to worry about.  Nuthin!

        • Alyssa

          Me neither, unfortunately!

      • laurenoodle

        Actually, it’s from a poorly fitting bra with too small of a cup. One is supposed to scoop their boob into the bra cup to avoid this issue, bras that are too small give me this.

  • I feel completely guilty for not being able to look at that weird little skin pocket below her armpit. Save me!

    • homofascist

      OMG!  That is all I can see now!  I was going to say that dress is amazing…

    • Dot

       Oh my God, I just noticed it. What is it?! Really beautiful gown, though. Pity he looks kind of of like a wax figure.

      • Deb Oswald

        If you look carefully there is a bit of sheer panel and the armpit pocket is skin being squeezed out over the top of the fabric

        • Dot

           Maybe. But in the third picture down, there appears to be a roundish lump of some sort under her right armpit. I could see how a tight panel would cause some fleshy overflow, but not an actual lump like that. Really strange.

    • jw_ny

       oh…I really wish you hadn’t pointed that out…so disturbing!  I can’t NOT look at them now.   XD 

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Don’t know either of these two.  But overall – pretty great looking couple! 
    Her – doing a good job of walking right on the line.  Way sexy in that dress – just about to be too much, but stopping short.  She’s making the color work for her (when it usually does not for girls w/ her coloring).  She’s like a sexy 20 year old Sandy Duncan. (doesn’t that just ruin it tho?)  He – is cute.  And, I don’t usually notice the good or bad in guys in suits but the tie looks wrong.  Way wrong.  LIke it’s one of those knit prep school things.

  • reddhouston

    She looks gorgeous and he has some great eyes

  • nannypoo

    Who on earth are these two attractive people? I seriously need to get out more. I like her dress, but it could be cut better under the arms. She can play Emma Stone’s sister in the upcoming Adventures of Two Hot Redheads.

    • I’m not sure about her, but he was Marcus in About A Boy. Those english chaps grow up so handsome. 

      • gabbilevy

        Also XMen First Class and A Single Man (with Colin Firth).

      • sekushinonyanko

         And he’s Tony from the British version of Skins!

  • Who? I don’t know who they are, but that is one spectacular gown, and it suits her to a “T”. 

  • Indigo54

    What a beautiful gown!  She looks fabulous.  But what’s that fold at her armpit?  Do we all have that?  Don’t tell me.  I don’t wanna know. 

    • Mazenderan

       I’m currently experimenting and trying to create that fold by pulling my bra really taut, and can’t manage it.  I have no idea what’s going on there.

  • I think they both look fabulous! 

  • MzzPants

    Her gown is gorgeous.  His makeup is flawless.

    • I had to laugh that he had on more dramatic lipstick than she did. Plus, he obviously shaded around his hairline for contour. Attaboy!

  • decormaven

    Mmm, the fabric that is used at the shoulder is too close to her skin tone for me. Gives the illusion far away that she’s got sequined jazz hands on her bosom. The stylist scored a nice suit for him; pity he didn’t shave the neck beard.

  • MilaXX

    No scores? I give him a 7.5 – nice suit, but the pants look a little too big & too long. She looks great, I give her and 8.5.
    I saw a preview of this and thought it was a cute little movie. Also? Ewan looks really hot dressed as a knight. That’s worth the price of admission alone.

  • gabbilevy

    SHE: Is knocking it out of the park. Watch this one, Jessica Chastain, she’s coming for you.

    HE: Is ruining what would be a slam-dunk (hey, sports metaphors) with a neck beard. Come ON man.

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    Outside of the Something Armpit This Way Comes she has going on and his extravaganza of facial hair!, they are both stunning and look great.

  • leave_Blake_alone

    He needs a little hemming, but is otherwise cute and well-fitted and I like the color. (wait, is that grey or blue?) She is serving it and that dress is gorgeous. This would be a 9/10 in pairs division.

  • SewingSiren

    I thought the thumb nail was a wedding picture because in it and in most of the others the poster in the background is giving the illusion of a veil. It’s perfectly obvious in the later pictures that they’re not getting married. But  they make a nice couple , maybe they should. 

  • That is one KNOCKOUT of a dress, although I don’t understand why she almost has babyheads from the front, yet they look totally normal when she turns just slightly to one side.

    • formerlyAnon

       My guess would be that she’s not that well-endowed and the fullness up top is carefully engineered enhancement.

  • tallgirl1204

    I know some will disagree with me, but I think that the unshaven look keeps these guys from looking like the top of a wedding cake, and that’s a good thing.  Together I would give her a WERQ and him a 7 out of 10 (I’m not sure about the pant length, something is wrong with that shirt– is it just too big AND too long?  The suit is nice but also not quite pressed.)  I do like the very plain knit tie.

  • Imasewsure

    Her hair clashes with her co-star… she looks good against a brick wall though… he should only and always wear blue… those eyes are killer!! Love this kid

  • Is he wearing lipstick?

  • crash1212

    So lovely to see a child actor grow up to be a very handsome…seemingly well adjusted….adult actor – great suit, too. She’s lovely and is totally owning that dress.

  • sablehunter

    Sigh.  It’s nice to see that even super tiny girls get the armpit folds of death if their ample chests are smashed down.

    That dress is a showstopper.

  • DTLAFamilies

    Good lord, he looks like a Care Bear, even with the fab suit.

  • That dress is fantastic! I love it.

  • Tomlinson’s dress is goooorgeous. 
    Hoult – I feel like ever since he was a kid, he’s had those incongruous bright red lips, but they never cease to make me think he’s wearing lipstick. Neckbeard – shave that shit. Is his suit blue or grey? THE PICTURES CAN’T DECIDE. I like it better in blue than grey – in grey it goes straight up banker, but in blue, it’s a nice compliment to his costar’s dress. 

  • stubbornthoughts

    I would cut a bitch for that dress.

  • Monday1900

    That dress is so gorgeous until you get to the bottom–don’t like the “flame” detail at the hem.  She still looks great.

  • PastryGoddess

    She looks amazing in that dress.  But her boobs are crying out for mercy

    He looks good.  His eyes are freaky

  • MiriamMc75

    She -is beautiful and her dress is drop dead gorgeous, but I don’t like that brassy orange hair on her. Maybe a darker auburn…

    He – is making me wanna go all Mrs. Robinson on his ass! As soon as we get rid of neakbeard of course.

  • Qitkat

    He has amazing blue eyes and too much lipstick, stain, gloss??? She has a cute dress. And I’ve never heard of either one, and don’t intend to see the film. Why the heck am I commenting? Oh, I know, it’s PR cat shredding the couch day and my mouth runneth over.

    • l_c_ann

      When the guy’s lipcoloring is brighter than the gal’s something’s wrong.

    • julnyes

      He actually has really red lips naturally.

  • She looks amazing, and he looks like a girl in drag.  Less Latisse, dear.

  • ccinnc

    Give him 20-30 years, and that will be some major blue steel.

  • I don’t understand why this is a whiteboard post; Tomlinson is seriously WERQ-ing this look.

  • JauntyJohn

    Jeepers, that boy has some serious peepers.

    I am opening a mobile-pants-leg-tailoring business.  I will drive in my little van from photo shoot to opening to premier and for a modest fee provide on-site-with-the-shoe-you’re-wearing pant hem tailoring help.
    I will make a fortune.
    I don’t really know how to hem a pant, but I sure as hell couldn’t do it much worse than whomever is out there doing it now.

    • PeaceBang

      This would be a great humanitarian service. Bless.

  • Adriana_Paula

    I love that dress to death,but it sems like an awful lot of dress for Jack the Giant Slayer…

  • She looks incredibly gorgeous. Darling boy, you are wearing a 3 piece suit. SHAVE YOUR FACE AND NECK!

  • librarygrrl64

    Other than some grooming issues on his part, they both look fantastic.

  • formerlyAnon

    She’s certainly doing her job and projecting “sexy girl next door dressed to the nines.” I like the dress but mostly because it reminds me of some (now-vintage) Christmas ornaments I inherited. 

    I like his suit but her dress requires he wear a silk tie, not a knitted one.

    In other news, he freaks me out. As in the neighbor who always looks hopped up or manic or maybe just one stressful life event away from a psychotic break. I’ve been trying to explain away this reaction in my last several encounters with his photos, but I am starting to think it’s just the way he looks in stills. Maybe if he shaved and put in muddy brown contacts it’d take the edge off.

  • MissAmynae

    Not to sound crude, but… she’s got a fantastic rack. And a face to match. Gorgeous.

    He’s Killing Me Softly yet again. Always!!  those eyes, my word.

  • That’s a great suit, and I LOVE the subtle plaid. I wish he’d worn a slightly more eye-popping tie, though. He has the much-maligned neck beard thing going on, but at least he’s fairly well-groomed otherwise. It’s a skosh wrinkled, but it fits him perfectly, and the hem is just right.

    If this were Pairs Division, he’d get a 7.5, and she’d get a 9, for an average of 8.25.

    She looks stunning. I have no idea who this girl is, but she’s killing it in this dress. Gorgeous dress, and her hair and makeup are lovely. I don’t even mind the matchy clutch.

  • Trisha26

    Love the dress aside from the va-va-va-voom cleavage and the unfortunate underarm situation. I hope Nicholas finishes filming whatever it is that chopped off his hair and added that scruff to his face. That he still looks stunning (pant-length aside) just confirms how adorable he is.

  • I love his red lips…how do you do that?
    And, nothing terrible is happening under her armpits…that’s NORMAL, but usually airbrushed out!

  • peachy

    and now………… Miiiiiisssssss Nebraska!                           too pageanty for me.

  • First the suit looked blue, then it looked black, then I finally saw the pattern, and then it went blue again.  WTF w/ the lighting at these venues???

  • Vaniljekjeks

    That dress fits her perfectly.  He is beautiful as always but needs to get rid of the beardstubble until his facial hair fills out.  There’s nothing wrong with being pretty, dear boy.  And hem your pants.  

  • She looks pretty hot. He could, but his clothes and grooming are ruining it for him. He needs some help with suiting- both picking out the right cut, and having a tailor go over it before wearing it. Also, shave the damn beard. It’s not working for you, dude.

  • barbarienne

    Give her that exact same dress except in red, and she would have to change her name to Jean Grey.

    I would have preferred it in a blue or green, but it is awesome and looks very good on her.

    Is his suit blue, or is it gray? It is two completely different colors in different pics. I prefer the gray version.

  • ccm800

    SHAVE!!!!!!!!! and WTF is going on with her underarm? Is that some breast augmentation side affect?  

    • PaulaBerman

      Oh god, now that you’ve pointed it out, it is really obvious and weird. What IS that?!?

  • kathrineb

    Something is not right about the girls goldspolosion dress. Don’t know if that hair is the right colour for her.

  • Frank Lithium

    One of the cutest pairs I have seen at a film premiere.

  • I know I should be talking about him and not her boobs but…

    How does she go from flat to baby heads back to flat again?
