    They both look so good! Love this, love them.

  • leahpapa

    I don’t love her hair, but Miss Thing is sexy as hell. Work that back, lady.

    • ellatheingenue

      Yeah, I love it, but that was the wrong hair for that dress.

  • gabbilevy

    Much improved. She looks stunning and she knows it. He always looks smokin’ but this is pretty high on the scale for him.

  • KinoEye

    Fairly standard, but they both look fantastic. They make a delicious pair, don’t they?

  • Sarah

    They both look really good, but I quibble that that dress would’ve been better served by her hair being up.

    • decormaven

      Really, she would have knocked it out of the park if the hair was upswept. Love the detailing on the dress. He’s mas fina, as always.

  • Sobaika

    She needs an UPDO!!

    • MilaXX

      Yes hair is too casual

  • I don’t really see the point of wearing a dress where the back is the major design feature and then having your hair down over 2/3 of it.

    • ampg

      Also, the back looks too loose on her, which also takes away from the overall effect.

  • alyce1213

    He’s successfully mixing black, charcoal, and blue, which I think is brave and sophisticated. He can really rock double-breasted.
    The dress is beautiful on her, perfectly fitted. I just wish she’d done something a little softer with her hair, or up.

  • hughman

    Thank god they’re gorge cause this is a little prom-y to me.

    • Judy_S

      I’m trying to imagine that prom. Fred and Ginger are the homecoming king and queen, Liz and Dick are snogging in a corner,and Brad Pitt got a haircut so Angelina would be his date.

      • demidaemon

        This sounds like an awesome fanfic!

  • nannypoo

    I like this dress better than anything I’ve seen her in lately, but she’d better get her hands off my man.

  • MilaXX

    Pretty. I’m still questioning showing so much skin while doing press for a Nelson Mandela biopic, but is better than her previous entries.

  • Oh, Moneypenny, you are my favorite White Christmas Tree.

  • CakesOnAPlane

    why would you wear that hair with that dress? Why would you wear that hair, PERIOD??

  • I love her dress – so pretty!

  • marlie

    Naomie’s dress is HAWT. I just wish that her hair was up, so that we could see the detail on her shoulders better. But still. HAWT. And Idris looks handsome as always. Though I sort of wish he was wearing a white (or at least, a lighter shade of grey) shirt.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Well done! I don’t mind her hairstyle. It keeps the look from being too fussy.

  • Trickytrisha

    Obviously our uncles love us dearly – they’ve gifted us with more Idris.

    Naomie looks divine, what we can see of her that isn’t obscured by that hair. It’s like she was all “Oooh, here’s a lovely dress with a spectacular back – why don’t I cover it up with long, flat as a board hair?”

  • Imasewsure

    Perfect style for an LA event like this. Love that dress and even like the hair (which is blocking my view of shiny objects)

  • They’re totally boning.

    • Jessica Freeman

      They may be, but apparently he has a pregnant girl friend…as I read today and wept.

      • quiltrx

        He probably just looked at her, and that was all it took.

    • bellafigura1

      Wow, I get the opposite impression.

  • Danielle


  • conniemd

    The dress fits her like a glove. Not a wrinkle in sight. I’m tired of see Idris in all black

  • elzatelzabelz

    Dayum. Gorgeous.

  • lizajane1776

    Oh. OH! WOW!

  • LaSylphide

    Beautiful dress, but what’s with the hair? Did she iron it, as many of us did in the ’70s (except this isn’t the ’70s)? As usual i am speechless in the presence of He Who Is Idris.

  • quiltrx

    Even *I* know you don’t have the pin-straight hair all up in the way of your shoulder/back bling. Her gays should have known better.
    And Idris, the hem is looking a little better. Keep working on it, and try to step away from the black and grey a little.

  • SorayaS

    That dress is incredible- I don’t even mind the flat ironed hair, it goes with the minimalist look. If he’d hemmed his pants this would be a double WERQ for me!

    Weird body language though- they’ve never looked very buddy-buddy during their poledance, have they?

    • bellafigura1

      Yeah, could she be leaning farther away? They both look spectacular though, maybe the celeb glow was just too much, they repelled like magnets.

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    She is African-American Gwyneth.

  • Diego!

    PERFECTION! 10 for her and 10 for him! WERQ & MERQ!

  • MissFern

    hot hot hot hot hot HOT.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    When the back of the dress has the excitement, yes, an updo would have served the overall look better. They do look scrumptious together! Love the double-breasted suit jacket on my man Idris.
