They’ve got a sequel coming out, so they’ll be ramping up the fauxmance for the cameras once again. Expect lots of cute, staged “walking down the street just like any other couple” pics in the coming weeks and months.

Style-wise, we think they both look kind of bad here. Her hair color looks muddy and her makeup looks smudged. The dress isn’t doing a thing for her figure except obscure it completely, and the shoes are pulling focus. He’s slightly better, but the lack of tie and belt, plus the lack of facial grooming makes him look like he’s trying the suit on in a dressing room. He looks unfinished and unpolished.

Harrumph. We’re not cranky, we swear.

  • I bet the sun was in their eyes, they’re both squinting which doesn’t help the look.

  • @Biting Panda

    I cosign your harrumph. Though at the risk of rule breaking snark, I will say the dress can’t obscure her figure, as she has systematically whittled herself down to as little a figure as possible. I don’t think those garish, mustard colored, shoes complement her fair complexion. I’ve never understood the appeal of the Garfield and nothing about him here is changing my mind.

    I, for one, am in a terrific mood.

    • No body snark.

      • @Biting Panda

        I’m sorry. I’ll make an edit.

        • Rhonda Shore

          I find the two of them adorable, even here…

  • “I want a dress that makes me look wide and yet flat all at the same time” 1 Dimensional is so in this year.

  • curiouserandcuriousest

    They’re a bit messy, but I like the look on her. The stripes are kinda fun. To him I am indifferent. Are we still calling this a fauxmance? I don’t doubt they turn the pdas on when a film needs publicity, but it seems a bit much to imagine they’d fake it for three or so years!

    • Kitten Mittons

      Love your name, by the way.

    • your face

      She looks cute as a button to me. Way better than the model.

  • Both of them are one huge MEH in this situation.

  • Anna

    Love Emma Stone. Do not love the doily-hemmed Ikea tablerunner and taxi cab yellow shoes she’s wearing. He’s a whole lotta meh. Found him appealing for all of five minutes circa The Social Network, but I lost that lovin’ feeling fairly fast.

  • MarieLD

    Really? Fauxmance? That kind of breaks my heart.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I don’t think it’s really a fauxmance, I saw them at a bar in NYC (miraculously not being hounded by paparazzi) and they were sitting in a quiet booth where no one was bothering them. It took EVERY OUNCE of restraint in my body not to shriek and run up to her…I have an IMMENSE love for her since…(this is embarrassing) “House Bunny”.

      • She was hilarious in that movie, which was a lot funnier than I expected. “It’s like, how hard can you throw? You know what I mean?”

      • mshesterp

        Don’t be embarrassed…that was a super cute movie. It cemented my love for Anna Faris, who makes lots of crappy movies magically better.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        There’s no movie shame here – say it once and say it loud House Bunny was okay!

    • stagmania

      Nope. All reports indicate that it’s real; 3 years would be a pretty long time for a fauxmance.

      • demidaemon

        It may not be a fauxmance, but I wouldn’t put it past the studio and the publicists to get them to play up the romance and visit more public, paparazzi-infested locations to sell the “romance” of the film.

        • stagmania

          Oh, totally. Playing up their personal lives to promote their projects is part of the job.

  • SugarSnap108

    The combo of completely shapeless and horizontal stripes does not float my boat. Not that she could ever look “wide,” but it’s just so … meh. I don’t mind his lack of a tie so much, but the lack of a belt is driving me nuts. At least he’s doing a better job on fit than most man-stars, but I feel like they (MEN) shouldn’t get points just for that.

  • gabbilevy

    I’m just happy she’s back to being a redhead. It’s much better on her than blonde.

    • CT14

      Sing it. She’s so much better as a redhead.

  • Kim Elmore

    WTF with her makeup? Is that sunscreen making her look so… shiny & titanium oxided? I hate sunscreen 🙁 (but, yes I know)

    • Yup. Necessary though, in Oz!

    • alyce1213

      The harsh sunlight isn’t helping.

  • AndiMarie

    I’m glad Emma is going back to the red hair, but yeah, that color needs a touch up.

  • NBG

    OK, US Weekly, who wore their ‘bad facial hair and scowl’ combo better? Andrew Garfield or Chris Evans?

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      Chris Evans does everything better.

  • pookiesmom

    %h3y look

    • pookiesmom

      Um, I did not write this.

      Anyone have experience with a hacked Disqus account? Ugh.

      • demidaemon

        No, unfortunately. I am glad that you are not claiming authorship, as it’s pretty much gibberish.

        • pookiesmom

          Its worst offense is that it’s boring spam. I feel like I could jumble random letters together in a hat and come up with something better than this. #justpleasedon’tbeanindicationthatmyemailgothackedUGH

          • demidaemon

            I hope not for your sake as well. The only thing of mine that was ever hacked was my MMO account, and that was a huge headache in itself. #knocksonwood

  • eight_of_nine

    I don’t even care about the clothes; I just can’t stop looking longingly at that beautiful blue water and wishing it would hurry up and be summer already!

  • pookiesmom

    They look SO HOT. As in temperature. I don’t blame them, it’s probably about a thousand degrees and they are melting.

  • Betsy

    I don’t like her ensemble at all but I really think her hair and makeup look divine. I see I’m in the minority–just getting around to my first morning coffee so I’ll have to revisit in an hour.

  • nannypoo

    I scrolled all the way down thinking she looks adorable, and I still do. I love everything about the way she looks here. On him, I hate the sansabelt slacks. The rest is OK, but, damn, I wish these guys would shave.

    • pattyw

      Totally agree — she looks adorable.

    • CT14

      “Sansabelt” was the word in my head, too.

      Except there’s a belt loop.

      Andrew, if there’s a belt loop, put a belt on it.

  • 3boysful

    I recognize that it’s windy down by the water, but she needs a shampoo and brush. I like yellow shoes, but not these. A semi-gladiator heeled sandal in yellow would balance the look better. However, I am not sure the dress is salvageable, except perhaps on a more statuesque lady. He’s entirely forgettable, and not completely dressed–where’s your belt, dear?

  • Carla_Charlton

    The weather in Sydney looks glorious.

    • Constant Reader

      That was my first thought, too. Sigh.

      • Eovaai

        It’s always hot in Sydney into autumn. It only begins to get cold here in May, and even then our winters are nothing compared to most of the US. It was about 86 degrees Fahrenheit that day. They would have been quite hot, especially in full sun.

  • Caroline Lindsay Whitham

    I wonder if they’re playing the maybe baby game to ramp up interest in the film?

  • MilaXX

    I don’t know if this is a post awards season slump or what, but like so many other celebs this week, these 2 are serving adequate get the job done looks. Are the stylist tried? Hungover. What is happening? While I’m at it, this me just say I don’t like this micros trend of yellow or pink shoes as a pop of color on the ladies. They almost always end up looking cheap and focus pulling. Can we stop that now?

    • The stylists are all running around trying to get themselves featured in Vanity Fair.

      • teensmom99

        The anti-stylist backlash that TLo predicted has begun!

  • Liz

    Happy to see her back to red, but this may not be quite the right color. Dress: terrible, he looks OK. They do look uncomfortable together though.

  • Constant Reader

    Don’t shoot me, fellow BKs, but I sort of like the dress. I think I’d like it more if it were fully lined instead of having that distracting v-neck slip thing going on, and if Emma had chosen a funkier shoe in almost any color except school bus yellow. He looks like he’s hung over and couldn’t find his tie when he got dressed in last night’s clothes.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I would agree about the lining, its certainly not helping things. See through lace with stripes did not need another design element in the undergarment.

    • mlle

      I know, logically, that it looks like fancy napkins, but I also find the dress oddly appealing. Hate, hate, hate the shoes though. I don’t mind that they’re a basic pump, but that cheap mustard yellow doesn’t work at all with her colouring. They also clash with his look, which you’d think someone on one of their teams would have considered.

      • CT14

        It’s almost like the stylist thought “The shoes are so far from her head, the red and yellow won’t clash at all.”

        But they look awful against her skin. Yuck.

      • demidaemon

        To me, it needed to be more opaque, because, with this setting and sheerness, it resembles a fancy bathing suit cover-up.

    • lundibleu

      At the moment the dress looks like “oh, shoot, this nice fitted white low cut dress I had is a wee bit TOO fitted/I ate too much at lunch, best throw on a flimsy cover up” – needs to be fully lined or at least less obviously lined.

      He needs to pop on a belt and undo his top button (or put on a tie, but that would look a bit formal here) and maybe lose the jacket. Then we could talk.

      And both of them need to learn to say ‘uh, how about us NOT staring into the sun’ to the photographers.

  • That dress is very authentically 1920s.

  • Richard Banger

    What is going on with her face?

    • alyce1213

      Harsh sunlight.

  • In_Stitches

    That might be the baggiest suit he’s ever worn. It’s not a bad fit, it’s just unexpected. I’m fine with the beltlessness as it can create a clean line, but I take issue with this new trend of completely buttoning shirts without wearing a tie. Maybe it would work if he was wearing a hipper shirt, but everything he’s got going on is pretty conservative, so it just doesn’t mesh.

    She…looks pretty rough. I get why she went with the dress-she’s favored this flapper inspired silhouette in the past and the nautical stripes feel appropriate for the setting, but it just doesn’t work on her as well as it does on paper. This dress you need Iman to work.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      ” I take issue with this new trend of completely buttoning shirts without wearing a tie.” Are…are you my husband? This is his number one fashion complaint. He yells at actors on talk shows and sportscasters for doing this.

      • Janet B

        My husband has the same complaint

      • Jacob Bowen

        I have the same complaint if the shirt isn’t visually interesting.

        • demidaemon

          I agree on the shirt and tie issue, but I can’t with the no belt issue. If I can see your belt loops, there had better be a belt going through them. I stand firm on this point.

    • kirkyo

      This is also my only complaint with what he’s wearing. It’s not a deal breaker however, and I’m not against it in general. It just seems a bit out of place with the relaxed feel of everything else.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Her shoes are the color of egg yolks, so no. This is a dress or skirt and top? I can’t tell either….

  • cocohall

    These look like the awkward pre-dance photos kids are forced to take in someone’s backyard. Complete with the body language that says “this is a set up – we are not having sex, ever.” Except that they have a slightly better backdrop in the Sydney Opera House than someone’s garden shed. And her dress looks like it could use a round of antibiotics. Are those amoebas? Is it stripes AND lace? I’m really not awake enough to handle this sort of visual assault. Off to hunt for some caffeine . . .

    • Kitten Mittons

      Yes! Her body language is strangely awkward here. I definitely got uncomfortable teenage vibes as well.

      Stripes and lace and see-through…oh my.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Egads, her make-up is a wreck! I am always amazed at how a stunning person like Emma Stone can be made to look washed out and sickly in the wrong hands. I don’t love his hair, too much product for my taste. I have no idea if their relationship is faux or real, but he will always have a spot in my heart for Doctor Who and Doctor Parnassus, and therefore I must operate under the assumption he’s an ok guy.

  • lbl

    I can’t hate. She’s one of the only celebrities that plays with shape and silhouette. Even when not successful, I appreciate her attempts because they’re refreshing.

    As for Andrew, leaving a button or two undone would have elevated his look.

  • teensmom99

    Her dress is like a mashup of 2 dresses I had in the early 80s. And we definitely didn’t go for formfitting then the way we do now.

  • CB

    I think Emma looks so great–fresh, modern, unusual, unexpected. Love her for taking a risk!

  • formerlyAnon

    She needed different shoes, then it’d rise to the level of nothing-to-see-here. I’d let him get away with this, even compliment it, if he’d worn a belt and shaved. I’m influenced by the fact that I find them, in any ensembles, an unremarkable pair. Overall, I’d give her a very, very slight edge in the interesting stakes. Fortunately, people hire them to act and put them in costumes.

  • MaggieMae

    “Shaving is so…yesterday.” (That’s the young kids are thinking).

  • MarissaLG

    I think he looks great. She…does not.

  • kt

    I recoiled at her shoes. Lop the goofy bottom hem off that dress and make it appropriately drop waisted and put on some prettier(any other) shoes. He is wearing a denim suit. Sweet canadian/texan tux, there is a casual version?

  • mlle

    This is the time to break out the fancy sunglasses, children.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    I’m not sure I personally like the buttoned up shirt without a tie trend. But it might have been better with a buttoned jacket, and maybe with a better color shoe.

  • I actually like this. I’m relieved her hair has returned to its natural hue.

    • Imasewsure

      She’s blond actually. We just like her better as a redhead

  • You can tell that their love is true – they’re almost the same height.

  • B_C_J

    Beautiful woman in a very ugly dress

  • Danielle

    *Waits for the PREGNANCY RUMORS to start*

  • Jackie4g

    I don’t think the two piece dress does justice to the fabric. That’s a really unusual fabric and the idea of engineering the stripes by way of bias is always interesting, but the fabric of the underskirt skirt is inset at a weird angle, so that it doesn’t create the intersecting lines of a plaid, it just drapes clumsily and looks confusing.

  • marlie

    Both of their outfits have potential, but look unfinished/unpolished. I like her shoes with the dress, but the dress needs to fit her differently/better.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Her dress is too big and too long — he looks like he just woke up.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    I’d kill for his hair 🙂

  • elemspbee

    Gosh I disagree about Emma S. I think this look is quite fresh and breezy. The dress is cute and it hangs nicely on her. Not everything the young woman wears has to announce to the world her figure. And her shoes are so much better than the shoes worn by the model–too heavy.

    I agree about the boy. Wash the face or something.

  • Kelly

    I don’t know — the dress looks comfy and summery and fun to me (though I wish it didn’t have that jagged lacy hem. Or if it’s going to have that hem, to add some interest, I wish it didn’t rise just in the middle like that, as if a bite had been taken out). I like the shoes. As for him, I think his hair looks a little Eddie Munster-ish minus the widow’s peak.

  • Jecca2244

    is it STILL hot there??? I feel like they have had summer for 100 years. maybe just mad that we’ve had winter for 200…

  • decormaven

    Wrong call on those shoes for her, and there’s a bit too much hair product in his locks.

  • She looks weary of him. The dress is unflattering, the makeup looks cheap and sloppy, and the hair looks as though it needs a touch-up. Where are his belt and tie? His shirt would look better with his complexion if it were a slightly more saturated color. I bet she’d look a hundred times better if she lost the top layer of her ensemble (probably a million times better if she weren’t standing next to him.)

    • OffToSeeHim

      To be fair, everyone is weary of him.

      • Gloriana Reginata

        Hey, I shall dispute that! The trailers for Spidey 2 look interesting, the clip of their scene together is great, and it’s on my movie viewing schedule for sure. Yeah, it’s got the typical Spidey angst tropes blared loud and hard (wouldn’t be a Spiderman movie without them), but I think Garfield carries them off with a lot more light charm and ironic quirks to him than Toby Maguire ever managed.

        • demidaemon

          It probably helps that he seems to approach life with more than the traditional Tobey M. gloom and sourness. Sorry, but Tobey is one of the few male actors on my irrational dislike list.

          • Gloriana Reginata

            I didn’t mind Maguire’s turn in the Spidey suit, but I must say that I’m enjoying Garfield’s a lot more, and that underneath perkiness versus Maguire revelling in the doom and gloom a bit much is definitely part of it 🙂

            (Though it does amuse me immensely that three of the biggest all-American comic-book heroes have now been played by Brits, and that two of them (Garfield and Bale) have created the most iconic representations of their characters. Not so sure about Henry Cavill yet.)

          • demidaemon

            I hadn’t thought of that, but you are so right. I partly feel this way, though, because of my extreme distaste for Tobey M. I just don’t understand his hype.

            On Cavill, though, I wonder if anyone will repeat the iconic Superman of Christopher Reeves. It may have something to do with this era, as having someone seem so invulnerable is kind of boring.

          • Gloriana Reginata

            Yeah, Supes has always been a bit of a difficult character to pull off, because you either need a villain who is very very smart (ie a writer who is very very smart) to threaten him, or you need DOOM ABOUT TO END WORLD kinds of plots to truly keep him occupied. And of course everyone loved Christopher Reeve so, he’s pretty much cornered the market on the Ideal Superman 🙂

          • demidaemon

            Exactly. I think that’s why Supes has always been more successful in animated series and features and Batman usually does better at the box office.

  • Fuchaforever

    Re:Emma. This is what little orphan Annie would look like as an adult in a Tim Burton “Annie” the musical- costume designed Colleen Atwood! Annie grows up and gets a blowout. LOL

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’ll get a new stylist….tomorrow! A new stylist and better clothes tomorrow! Come what may!

      • Fuchaforever

        I love it! LOL

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          I’m thinking that Helena Bonham Carter would be our Miss Hannigan in this version.

          • formerlyAnon

            I’d pay to see that.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            In my fantasy “Annie” I’ve added Willem Dafoe as Miss Hannigan’s sexually twisted henchman.

          • Fuchaforever


  • JimMcC

    I kind of really like her dress. It doesn’t show off her figure, but I don’t know that it needs to. If that makes any sense. I even liked the shoes for a moment, but oddly the longer I look at them against her skin, the more the contrast between her tone and theirs starts to morph for the worse.

    And listen Andrew Garfield. I also hate wearing a tie, but at least put on a damn BELT!

  • Imasewsure

    You guys are grumpy. They look fine. Not loving the shoes although they are not boring. Seems like a good enough effort for a photocall

    • alyce1213

      I agree, they look better than the vast majority of what’s dragged before our eyes.

  • kimmeister

    The best thing about these pictures is the Sydney Opera House in the background, hands down.

    The sleeves and the deep V are combining to make her chest look weirdly concave, which it is not. If she wanted to deploy that mustard color, I’m glad she did it in her shoes because that color belongs nowhere near her face.

  • EEKstl

    …I know, I know, but he’s adorbs!

  • JP

    I think this is a Girl, That’s Not Your Dress moment. That fit of dress is better for women who have lumps to hide, not stick figures. And I am full of hate for those shoes.

    He needs a belt, I agree. And if he just unbuttoned that top button, he could get away without a tie.

  • MannahattaMamma

    they’re the younger version of Diane Kruger & Joshua whatsisface. Except Stone can act and maybe Kruger has more fashion chops. Plus what a weird place for a staged photo op: horrors! natural light!

  • Joanna

    All I will say is that I am so glad her hair is darker again. I wish she’d go even more dark, though.

  • Bailey Debruynkops

    oversized is a legitimate trend, & only the skinny (see: emma) can pull it off, which she is

  • vickilu

    “walking down the street just like any other couple”

    Which will be even more amusing, considering they’ve both been MIA for months except for some on-set photos. I guess if they’re not going to be seen together, why got out at all!

  • demidaemon

    Belts! You need a belt when the belt loops are exposed. Shame on you, Andrew. Also, both of your figures are being obscured. I would bet money that the both of them will look much better and show off their figures better when the the staged on the street pics start circulating.

  • Candigirl1968

    I guess randomly throwing in bright shoes is going to be a thing.

  • Kate4queen

    They look both miserable and badly dressed.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Two questions: is this really a fauxmance? I suspected as much, but I can’t imagine pretending to be in love with someone for as long as they’ve been at it.

    Second: are yellow shoes a mini-trend? Isn’t this the third random yellow shoe we’ve seen that clashes with the rest of the outfit in recent days?

    • LadyLuck777

      See: Stewart & Pattinson.

  • Sally Spannagle

    Her outfit looks like some type of traffic sign with the black/white stripes and yellow shoes

  • largishbearishAtlish

    The only compliment I can come up with is her outfit sorta emulates the Opera House in the background…okay yea, I am stretching here… and his ‘outfit’? really? there are out of work stylists that can’t be hired here? or an…I don’t editor for gods sake?

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I like the dress better on her than on the model, but the shoes don’t work. He has no personality in still photographs at all.

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    It’s not a fauxmance. Emma Stone and I share a mutual friend. It really is a legit relationship. Just fyi!

  • stephbellard

    Aren’t they both gay?

  • Nataki Vickers

    Girl, you need a sandwich.

  • Her makeup is waaaaay off. She looks like she’s in whiteface. That’s RHPS floor show makeup.

  • Virginia Lee

    she’s too skinny!

    • Glammie

      Yeah, I had the same reaction–wondered if the big horizontals and general looseness of the dress were to hide her being too thin even by Hollywood standards. I actually really like Emma Stone onscreen, so I hope she’s okay.

  • alliekat9090

    Something is wrong here. I don’t what it is, but it’s….something.

  • anotherkate

    The third pair of bright yellow pumps I’ve seen today. Get over it, stylists, it ain’t that cute. HARUMPH.
