Pairs Division: Moore and Moretz

Posted on April 19, 2013

Aw, how cute. They really do look like mother and daughter. We look forward to loving scenes between the two of them in the movie.

 

Julianne Moore and Chloë Moretz attend the ‘Carrie’ Photocall in Cancun, Mexico. Julianne is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana dress paired with Tabitha Simmons shoes. Chloë is wearing a Marni dress paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

Railing against remakes of classic movies is pretty much yelling into the wind at this point, but we can’t say we’re salivating over this one.  DePalma’s original was a perfect representation of seventies horror. We don’t  relish the idea of an update, but we suppose every generation deserves their own little psycho telekinetic and Sissy was getting a little long in the tooth to be a figurehead to anyone born after 1985. Fine. Go update Carrie. We’ll probably watch it when it’s on HBO and begrudgingly admit that these two were very good in their roles. But to love it more than the original? It is to laugh. Nothing will ever beat that excruciatingly long moment backstage, when Amy Irving figured out was about to happen. Give-you-chills film-making. And the hand? At the end? Genius.

Harrumph. Onward, and from the left:

SHE: Is, praise Jesus, NOT wearing something cracktastic and too complicated for her. Can it be that she’s finally learned her lesson and realized that just because you like a garment doesn’t mean you should wear it for pictures? The thing with Julianne is, she’s all head. If you’re Julianne Moore and you’re getting your picture taken, then you naturally rest the look on your beautiful features and striking head of hair. Which is why a simple white lace dress makes her look spectacular. Know your style strengths. Score: 8.5/10. We don’t much love the shoes.

SHE: Looks adorable. And she makes a nice counterpoint to Hailee and her catsuit today. It’s nice to see her relaxing a little on the style front and seeing the value in looking your age. After all, in 20 years, if she’s still on the scene, she sure as hell isn’t going to want anyone assuming she’s older than she is. All of this is working pretty perfectly on her; yes, even the silly putty shoes. Score: 9.5/10.

Combined Score: 9/10. Excellent work, ladies. We can’t see your dirty pillows.
