Sharon Stone and Amanda Seyfried at the “Lovelace” Las Vegas Premiere

Posted on August 05, 2013

It’s kind of fun to have Sharon Stone to talk about. We hope she has a career rebirth and we get to see her swanning on the Oscars red carpet in something outrageous. It’s time, America.

 

Sharon Stone and Amanda Seyfried attend the “Lovelace” Las Vegas Premiere. Amanda Seyfried is wearing a Stella McCartney top and shorts paired with Calvin Klein Collection shoes.

It’s Monday morning and math is hard, so we don’t feel like scoring them in a “Pairs Division” post. We’ll say this: we pretty much love Amanda’s outfit just for being stark and interesting at the same time. We think it’s smart to play up her amazing face in her styling. Once you decide to rest everything on those cartoon eyes and full lips, styling her becomes fairly easy. We like the grey shoe, but would’ve prefered not seeing suede on the RC in August.

We like Sharon’s outfit, for the most part. It makes a nice contrast with Amanda’s (we’d swear they coordinated), and it suits her. But we don’t think it looks very … refined. That blouse is as standard as blouses get and the skirt looks like a girdle. Also: the shoes don’t really go. And we’re not sure what’s going on with her face, but her makeup is NOT looking good in pictures. She’s either DIYing her makeup or she’s having it put on by someone who doesn’t understand high definition digital cameras. It’s like all her features recede from more than a few feet away. We suspect this makeup looks okay in person, but it doesn’t look right in pictures on the red carpet. Not to us, anyway.

      Amanda Seyfried’s hair is GLORIOUS.

      • Mrs. Julien

        It’s so SHINEY!

    • RuthGo

      I have to disagree with you about Sharon Stone. This is a totally appropriate outfit for someone her age and the details on the skirt kick it up to (clearly lowkey) red carpet. And the white of the shoes speak to the white of the skirt while adding a touch of color. I do agree that her makeup is dicey but overall, well done and chic.

      • teensmom99

        I think the outfit is aging–it looks like what she (or more aptly Lauren Hutton) would have worn in the 70s but instead of looking youthful it is aging. And that’s too bad because I think she could look fantastic–so this isn’t a comment about her looking old, per se, but rather that when you age you have to change what you wear.

      • fursa_saida

        I think I’d like it a lot better if the skirt were exactly the same but not shiny. The neck-to-knees shiny isn’t working for me.

    • Diego!

      Sharon is a GODDESS and clearly destroys Amanda in this post. Amanda Seyfried seems always “too washed out” to my taste. I don’t know… she may be a good actress (?) but she doesn´t have a red carpet stamina, tough hair and make up are flawless here. Sharon, despite the blouse and rare make up, it´s killing it!

      • GSMSF

        I totally agree. These photos make me feel better about being Sharon’s age and not Amanda’s. It’s nice to see an older woman sweeping the show and looking sexier and classier than ever.

        • Diego!

          I totally agree too :D She is a little bit older than my oldest brother, but I asume (as someone mentioned here several posts ago about Sharon) she must be crazy fun. She looks great and happy and it’s great to see that at a red carpet! Gotta love Sharon! :)

      • Sarah

        Yes! Sharon is fierce, fabulous and fine. She exudes sex appeal no matter what she wears. And I feel like the sexy button-down has been her thang since she rocked one at the oscars, so it works for her! The makeup and skirt need an upgrade though…I don’t think the shoes are killing it but at least they aren’t suede in august. She owns this rc in my book!

    • MilaXX

      Amanda looks fine, but I hope we’re about to start seeing greige(gray+beige) shoes on the runway. I get what you mean about Sharon’s face. It looks very normal person, not makeup ready. I don’t mind her outfit, but I dislike the girdle like pattern on the skirt. I hope they did coordinate their outfits. At the very least Sharon wisely did not try to compete with Amanda. She looks her age, but she in a good way.

      Considering the person Amanda is playing it was very wise to put her in a simple white outfit. If they had gone more overtly sexy, it wouldn’t have played well. Whereas, Sharon can rock the girdle skirt with impunity.

    • Jessica Freeman

      The first thing I noticed was how badly aging Sharon’s make up is. I hate the shoes she is wearing with the outfit. Sharon’s outfit in theory is great, but the girdle skirt killed it.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      I’m so in love with the idea of the whole mother/daughter/mentor/apprentice/jedi/padwan thing that happened here, the fashion is a sugary icing on the cake.

      If Seyfried didn’t learn a thing or two while playing the daughters of both Meryl Streep and Sharon Stone, then she is too hopeless to remain.

    • EdithP

      Sharon looks like she wants to suck the youth right out of Amanda.

    • Qitkat

      I’ll just say it and the bitter kittens can jump all over me. BOTH women are wearing too much makeup. I’m tired of a beautiful young woman always looking so overdone every single time we see her. I’m sure Amanda has lovely fresh clear skin at her age, and I wish we got to see her presented more minimally at premieres and the strong makeup reserved only for the top awards red carpet events. Sharon’s makeup is way too matte and heavy, although I like her lip color much better than Amanda’s. Sharon has aged nicely without looking like she has had too much work, or badly done work, and I am happy to see that.

      I’m not crazy about either outfit, but I like the black and white best on Sharon, even with the girdle-like elements of the skirt.

      Sharon has great cheekbones – look at those pics where she is smiling.

    • nannypoo

      I like Amanda’s outfit but the top doesn’t fit properly. It’s too wide in the shoulders and the sleeves are too long. Cute, though. There is no excuse for Sharon’s outfit. TLo are right, the skirt looks like a girdle and is so tight that it’s pulling crosswise from top to bottom, the waist sits too high and the fabric is sleazy. The blouse is sloppy. It might look better if the skirt didn’t cut it off right under the saggy boobs.

      • kimmeister

        Sharon is simply too short-waisted to pull of a high-waisted look.

    • Coleen

      I need Sharon to at least think about bangs. She is a goddess, but this windblown look is aging her.

    • leahpapa

      Sharon’s outfit looks office wear as imagined by Bebe.

      • ankali

        The skirt in particular is terrible — too tight, too wrinkly, too high-waisted. I like the idea she was going for, and the blouse could have worked, though.

    • barbarienne

      Sharon Stone should be the antagonist in that Helen Mirren / Judy Dench buddy-spy movie everyone wishes they would make.

      • cowper

        Charlie’s Angels of the future?

        • Morales Mike

          Now that’s a Charlie’s Angel’s remake I can get onboard with – Helen, Judy and Sharon!

    • alyce1213

      She can make a standard blouse her own — this is the woman who wore a Gap t-shirt to the Oscars. Classic Sharon Stone, just the way I love to see her. Makeup issues aside, she looks fabulous, even the shoes. The girl next to her looks very cute, too.

    • julnyes

      The make-up issues for Sharon Stone aside, I think they both look good and more importantly like they aren’t competing with each other.

    • MandyM

      Sharon should either fire her make-up artist or her plastic surgeon. Someone is not doing her justice. The only pics of her that are even recognizable are when she’s smiling.

      I disagree about Amanda though. She looks like she is wearing a colorless cheerleading outfit and standard cheerleader hair. Boring.

    • Lori

      This is a banner day for whoever has the ice skate concession in hell—–I don’t hate the Stella. It’s nothing special, but it doesn’t look like it was designed by someone who has never actually seen a human being and it doesn’t fill me with rage. That’s a high water mark for Stella.

      I’m less pleased with Sharon’s outfit. I like the idea, but not the execution. That’s a lot of shiny and the skirt is pulling so much that the effect is just not flattering. I agree that the make-up isn’t really working, so for me this look is a go home and try again.

      • demidaemon

        I agree on the Stella analysis. I thought, “Wow. This is a tolerable design. Woot!” As for the girdle skirt, it’s a mess. Wrong fabric, wrong seaming, wrong person, wrong event.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      If Sharon’s skirt was just a few inches lower – meaning less high-waisted – this would be much better.

      Amanda pretty much looks perfect.

    • newsieneighbor

      Did you see the pictures of Sharon Stone in character? It is so far from fabulous — she’s hitting the serious actor comback trail hard
      .

    • gurl boy

      Stone looks awesome!

    • nancymae

      Is Stone wearing satin? Her outfit is so shiny.

    • velomango

      I think they both look quite nice. Nothing extraordinary, but fine.

      BTW – am I the only one who thought “Lovelace” was going to be about *Ada* Lovelace? (yes, I’m quite nerdy)

    • Sonja Brisson

      Sharon Stone can do no wrong. Even though the waist on her skirt is a little odd…sort of the equivalent of granny panties. But it doesn’t matter. She is above mere mortals.

    • guest2visits

      Agree the shoes and the skirt for Sharon are a bit off. The black satin shirt is perfection for her but I don’t like the repeat of satin in the skirt, I don’t mind that it’s snug but the satin makes it old and cheesy, and the shoes look like the 70s.
      Otherwise I think she looks great and not so cougary crazy as she has been in some recent pics.
      Amanda looks wonderful in this outfit too, although it bothers me I can’t tell if it’s a skirt or big ole shorts.

    • Imasewsure

      Gotta disagree too… nothing earth shattering about Ms Stone’s look but I think she looks great and also love the executive vibe as opposed to something more desperate (which is all too common for Ms S and for many many too many older actresses).
      As you say, “It’s time, America”… I would love a Stone decade because she’s fun and crazy a la Maclaine

    • Ann VerWiebe

      I should look as good as Sharon Stone (I was going to say at her age – but really at any age)!

    • JaCory Deon

      While Seyfried looks pretty, Ms. Stone is clearly outshining her which is funny because her outfit isn’t great and her makeup is quite dull. I know Stone is known for being a blonde but I think she’d look great eased into a red or even brown. I get what she’s going for with the hair/styling (ala Deneuve) but here it’s not working imho. Still, can someone please make a movie worthy of this interesting actress.

    • Shawn EH

      I sort of like the girdle-ness of the skirt. And she’s famous for her chic, but unpretentious blouse preference.

    • JauntyJohn

      Sharon Stone looks like a Movie Star. Amanda Seyfried looks like an actress.

      With that said, Amanda’s cat-that-swallowed-the-canary smile in that one shot, sort of a “Yes, she looks good, but I am SO much younger than this broad.” makes me want her cast as a villain for the rest of her career.

    • Sunraya

      Amanda Seyfried – is anyone excited when they see this girl? She seems dull as dishwater.

      SS on the other hand lights up any venue! Great charisma!

    • throwaneyeonthis

      Sharon Stone demonstrates how good posture can make any ensemble look good. Sixth picture down is how we all should stand while waiting at the bus stop. Everybody would bow down.

    • Louise Bryan

      Dang, y’all got there ahead of me; I looked at that skirt on Ms. Stone, and saw my mom’s girdle. Guess I wasn’t alone.

    • roche

      I love Sharon’s outfit. I find the black blouse and white skirt sleek and sophisticated. I envy her figure. I agree with TLo on her shoes though: the black heel and gold ankle strap are cool, but the beige over the foot belongs on a 70s sandal.

      Maybe it’s the lights but I find Amanda’s outfit pretty blah.

    • AnneElliot

      Sharon’s roots are giving me a sad. And who thinks that exposed zippers in the front are a good idea?

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Ms. Stone’s outfit needs to not be shiny. The shirt could be forgiven, but the skirt takes it to Tackytown.

    • constipateddog

      I don’t think Sharon deserves a career revival. She did attempt to justify the deaths of tens of thousands of people through a politically-motivated viewpoint that she underresearched. Sorry for the hate, but it’s not less than what she’s doled out.
