Sandra Bullock in London

Posted on October 10, 2013

Why so serious, Sandy?


Sandra Bullock seen arriving back at her hotel in Chelsea, London.


Isn’t your movie a hit and aren’t you being fast-tracked to the Oscar short-list? Sweetie, you’re kicking ass all over the place and have the ladypants to prove it. Relax. Also, T Lo think this is one time when your penchant for big honkin’ shoes is really working for you because big honkin’ shoes are always going to look better with pants than with a skirt.

On the other hand, those “pants” – because let’s be honest, they’re a couple microns away from being leggings, really – aren’t our favorite pair in the world. We don’t mind tight, but the shininess is not fabulous and you sure look like you’re struggling not to go all cameltoe on us.

Is that it? Are you looking kind of grumpy because after a long night of poledancing in these things you just want to get back to your hotel room to peel them off and here you are, inches away from the door? Right. Carry on, then. Sorry.

Nice jacket.

      I don’t mind the outfit, but her sourpuss is really bringing the whole look down.

      • Funkykatt

        jet lag?

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Possibly. Hell, if I looked as great as her, you’d have to beat the smile off of my face.

      • lobsterlen

        This is an honest question …. Does she ever look happy? I don’t think smiling comes naturally to her.

        • Angela_the_Librarian

          Plenty of people have a neutral or even frown-y resting face position. It may be that combined with jet lag and being confronted by paps at her hotel.

          • vahtel

            Bitchy resting face!

            • Swiftlytiltingplanet

              That would be me.

        • RussellH88

          I don’t expect her to to be sunshine and rainbows or anything. You could serve seriousness, or give us bitch face or something. This just looks like she doesn’t want to be there.

          • SEPA_Q

            Maybe she just doesn’t want the photographers to be there? To me, her face says “Go away, I don’t want my picture taken”.

            • travelgirl28

              Yes, I agree with you. I’m one of those folks who believe celebrities shouldn’t have to perform every time a pap is near. God, that must get tiring if you’re anyone other than a Kardashian. Sandy shouldn’t get criticized for not poledancing every single second.

            • RussellH88

              I don’t want anyone to think that I expect her to be waving and smiling and to be “on” all the time. I’m aware that it’s probably tiring and annoying. I’m just saying that even when justified, someone looking annoyed or giving the impression that they do not want to be there can not make for a great looking picture.

              Does she have legitimate reasons to look sour? Of course, I’m not arguing that. I’m just saying that the outfit is nice, but her expression and attitude in the pictures brings it down a little. That’s all.

      • EveEve

        She looks tired, jet lagged? hungry? with aching feet, smile muscles that are worn out, and missing her little boy after a full day and night of being “on,” and not expecting paps when she finally got back to the hotel. You know…human.

      • notterriblybitter

        I bet she misses Louis. She just lights up when he’s around.

      • siriuslover

        The pictures don’t even look like her.

    • Paige @ LPD

      they ~are~ leggings.

      • Adriana_Paula


    • annabelle archer

      Why does she look like a mafia hit woman on her way to yoga?

      • 3boysful


    • Diego!

      Maybe her hair is not as flat as she likes it to. Therefore her angry face (?)

    • Nikko Viquiera

      Poor thing, she must be exhausted. I wish I looked like that exhausted. B*tch.

    • LondonMarriott

      Meh, she’s just upset because Neil DeGrasse Tyson wants her to wear an adult diaper.

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        You get all the wins.

      • NYCGlamourpuss


    • Annarosa

      the only disturbing thing is the 2 different shades of black for jacket and pants.
      and with a smile everything changes.

    • CB

      Already said it on the Nicole Kidman post the other day, but I just cannot get on board with the collared-shirt-buttoned-up-all-the-way look that seems so popular these days.

    • Fannie Wolston

      her gray haired fox gets a head shot in, and god can’t you see she is sick of travelling, that or gravity is pulling her down. Dont touch me! Love her outfit!

      • editrixie

        The perspective on that picture actually made me both scared and laugh out loud — it’s like his hed is pastede on yay or something. It’s BIZARRE.

    • Truthiness2U

      Tights are not pants!

      Or in this case, shiny leggings shouldn’t be used in the place of a good pants. I agree, that’s what has her so sad, and I feel for her, because I’m not feeling them either, Sandra.

    • alyce1213

      Aw, let her be tired and jetlagged. But the pants are too tight and I wish they were a print.

    • MilaXX

      Are we going to have a black and white winter following the black and white summer? How boring!

    • Jacob Marek

      i think she looks chic! jetlagged and chic.

    • stellamaris73

      Those yoga pants are what I put on what I get home from work.

      LOVE the blazer. Beautiful cut.

    • Lori

      She blacks neither match nor sufficiently contrast, which means she’s tripping my OCD.

    • tereliz

      I thought this was Vicky Posh from the thumbnail…

      • Lidia Starkova

        Me too.

    • Vivi N

      The top half of the look is perfection. Gonna try it one of these days.

    • Loola234

      Why do people hate lipstick??? Or, at least, lipstick with a color other than flesh or pinkish flesh?

    • Emily Giovanni

      Her hair is so shiny. And I love her outfit, tightpants notwithstanding.

    • decormaven

      Aww, she just needs a little cuddle time with the kiddo. The jacket is good; the pants, not so much.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Everything from the waist up looks great (she has seriously enviable hair). Just needed to swap out those shiny legging/pants for something with thicker material.
      Oh, and I also wanted to gush a bit about Gravity. Probably the best movie I’ve seen yet this year. I’m not a huge Sandra Bullock fan but I can totally see why she has award buzz right now.

    • manina

      She looks so chic. Maybe she looks a little sad? She is human, after all. She can’t be “on” all the time, that would be fake.

      • Meredith_P

        But at events like this, it’s her job. Maybe she should try “fake”…and lipstick. Even the frown would be better in color. ;-)

        • Adriana_Paula

          There is no event; she’s just on her way to her hotel.

    • Latin Buddy

      Why don’t you guys ever do movie reviews? I would LOVE to get your take on the latest movies!!

    • veriance

      I like each piece of the outfit, but not all together. She looks like a hostess at a high end martini bar

    • Snailstsichr

      Her eyebrows are divine! I think she is sad because she forgot her lipstick – or maybe that is just why I am sad.

    • Michelle Gennari

      We never know what’s going on in someone’s head. Maybe the little one was crying when she left the house? Yanno “real people” stuff? :)

    • estella_nyc

      I’d like for her collar to be unbuttoned or a nice necklace to breakup the sea of white.

      And the leggings are not in the same black fabric as the jacket, so you can see the shiney-ness of the spandex.

    • International Model

      Ladysuit is killer! Why is she wearing open toed shoes in London this time of year? Is that the reason for the sad face?

    • KateTdid

      For a second, I thought this was Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit.

    • MannahattaMamma

      she’s crabby because she’s apparently been morphed into Corine Roitfeld’s younger (older?) sister. Faux-goth.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      I like her from the waist up or the waist down, but not those two halves together. I like the jacket, with the leather shoulders, but I don’t like the jacket with those pants. I like the leggings with the shoes, but not with that shirt or jacket. And she’s so cute, she really does look better when she smiles.

    • kmk05

      She reminds me of her character in Miss Congeniality, at the end, with the pin straight hair, the white shirt, the jacket and the serious face.

      I don’t like her leggings, but everything else is KILLAH. She can rock a fastened up shirt and jacket like no one’s business.

    • stubbornthoughts

      She needs Louis and George. Because they are the perfect family.

    • formerlyAnon

      What y’all said.

    • LJCdoc

      Maybe her flat iron put in its 2-weeks notice?

    • majorbedhead

      It’s really bad that, from the thumbnail, I thought it was a very photoshopped Iggy Pop. I do not think that straight hair is doing her any favors.

    • llism

      If she’s on the red carpet, I would expect her to be pleasant and smiley, which she usually is. If she’s just going from the car to the hotel door, I don’t expect her to be cheery, especially since it looks like the photographers are RIGHT in her face. At least she didn’t pull a Kanye.

    • Meredith_P

      I have one word for her beautiful (although apparently unhappy at this event), 49 year old self: lipstick. No matter how great you look (and you do), as we age, we need more color, Sugar. It’s a biological fact that lips lose color when you’re old. You’re welcome.

    • SignLadyB

      My gracious! The woman has been on a world wide tour, smiling, dressing, posing, talking maybe she IS just exhausted and wanting to get to her hotel room and peel off the makeup, outfit, shoes get into her jammies and go to bed! Why do we (not you, TLO) have to analyze and criticize her “sourpuss”. To me she simply looks exhausted.

    • NoveltyRocker

      Love the idea of this and just noticed the leather paneling on the shoulders. The paparazzi flash is probably making the pants shinier than they are in life but a heavier—thread-count I guess? How do you talk about grades of legging thickness?—would look better.

    • Monabel

      Glum expression, severe outfit, maybe she’s thinking about Head Start and food stamps.

    • MartyBellerMask

      I didn’t realize TLo featured Iggy Pop on their blog.

    • nannypoo

      Does she ever wear a lipstick with color? I think she would look great in a soft red.

    • jdoodad

      Bad form boys. She’s not on the red carpet, she’s exiting a vehicle,Your reading of her neutral expression is very Daily Mail.

    • Targettaste

      I can only wish that on my best day I looked as good as her on her worst cranky-exhausted-travel day. That said, she needs to put down the flat iron; her severe hair is dragging her whole face down.

    • quiltrx

      Peter Gabriel called, and said “Bitch stole my Sledgehammer look.”

    • lundibleu

      That second picture? Could be Vicky B. And really, surely those actually are leggings.

    • marshmallowjane

      I’ve always been annoyed by women of a certain age who still wear their hair parked down the middle, like SJP or Julia Roberts. For some reason, this part looks okay, maybe because her hair looks healthy and pretty, and maybe because she frequently changes things up.

    • Lola Channing

      those pants have Kim Kardashian written all over them.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      unless she’s going to a vampire funeral, this is all wrong.

    • Jane

      No she isn’t sad she just can’t see its night time and a hundred cameras are flashing at her. She needs her big boat shoes to keep her from falling over.
