Pairs Division: Naomi Watts and Eric Bana at the BVLGARI LVCEA Unveiling Event

Posted on March 28, 2014

We could not be less interested in what he’s wearing – and it looks like he can’t be less interested in it either.

He’s as dull as dishwater. We never really did get his appeal. Then again, not to be mean or anything, but he never quite took off.

Anyway, he’s not giving us anything , so let’s focus on her. We’re feeling respect. She’s making that jumpsuit mostly work. We’ve been seeing way too many dicey jumpsuits attempted by ladystars lately, so it’s nice to see one that almost gets the job done. We say “almost” because the hem on those pants are enough to make a couple style bloggers cry.Hem that shit, girl. Let’s see your shoes. But if it works, it’s because the rest of the fit is pretty good and the color looks fantastic on her. And we like the hair and the earrings. Not so much on the Free-Gift-With-Purchase clutch.

    Sorry, doesn’t work for me. I think person who was supposed to hem both their pants got stuck in traffic. And the top of her jumpsuit looks like David’s Bridal bridesmaid’s-wear with lace inserts.

  • Miss Ruth

    …but it comes with a little thing of moisturizer! Don’t hate on the Clinique.

    Love the color on her, though the garment itself is making her look a little droopy and saggy. Maybe that’s more about the lack of a robust enough underthang?

    • Danielle

      I shamelessly hit the Clinique counter twice a year for bonus time. No more, no less.

  • Cyprienne Zed

    Cutouts = *point, point* Here are my nipples, folks.

    • Betsy

      I can’t unsee it.

  • Mismarker

    Naomi is serving it.

  • Denise Alden

    Huh. I usually am enamored of Naomi Watts, but here, not so much. I don’t like her hair, and that forehead is looking suspiciously smooth for her. I like how “untouched” her face looks most of the time. That being said, I just saw “Adore” and loved it!

    • KinoEye

      Good, I’m not the only one. Something about her face here is just off. I thought it could be the hair/makeup, but her lips and forehead look very different. If she did, it’s a shame — she’s aging beautifully.

      • Denise Alden

        Yes, she really is. Let’s cross our fingers that it’s a deadly combination of makeup, lighting, and hairstyle.

  • MilaXX

    They both need their pants hemmed.

  • @Biting Panda

    Any outfit that gives you sad boobs and missing feet, is not your friend. Not a fan of the starkness (real word?) of her head either.

    He’s a bore, but I’d give him the time of day, if he asked for it.

    • decormaven

      Because you’re that kind of Bitter Kitten. Bless you!

  • He has shark eyes. It’s creeping me out. And his suit is awful. I own better suits than that.
    She, bless her heart, is trying to make that jumpsuit werq but it isn’t. It looks like it’s make out of cheap spongy polyester.

  • JauntyJohn

    He was smokin’ hot in “Troy.”
    And he knows how to get the watch in the shot, so points for that I guess.
    Love the color on her. Love the detail at neckline. After some god awful lace panels lately those little slices are sharp.
    But we’re not lookin’ good at the bust or the hem.

    • decormaven

      When I see shameless product plugging, I think about the direction given the models in “The September Issue” – “Feature the bag!” At least he got it right.

    • Laura Abrahamsen

      He breaks my heart in Troy, every time. Seen it a lot, occupational hazard of a former HS Latin teacher.

    • He has my forever love because of Troy. You can keep Paris and Achilles, give me Hector.

  • Lori

    Please don’t be nice about the jumpsuit. First, it’s awful and second it could encourage others to wear them and that needs to stop.

  • Milos Mom

    Blasphemy T+L… He was *THE* best thing in the movie Troy and Chopper was fantastic.

  • gracedarling

    He’s been criminally misused in America – he has a very dry, very Aussie sense of humour (see: Full Frontal, The Castle) that just doesn’t translate to big doofy action movies.

    God knows why he’d even want to be an action star; he’s a fêted actor in Australia for his roles in Romulus, My Father and Chopper, in the latter of which he needs to be seen to be believed. Fat. Tattooed. Earless. Watch it, uncles, and get the appeal.

    • Agreed. Loved him in Chopper.

    • ankali

      Stunning in Blackhawk Down, too. Seems like his biggest movies are his most boring, but they’re the exceptions, not the rule.

    • I really enjoyed his documentary about his car, Love the Beast. Its nice to see actors with other actual hobbies and staying in touch with their friends/family through them. I never would have watched it were I not married to a “petrol head” though 🙂

    • E2_Remote

      OMG, Full Frontal, yes! People, go look it up on YouTube, you will never see Eric Bana in the same light again. And he is awesome in Chopper.

    • It was always a surprise for me that he went from being a sketch comedian to being a proper actor – although he did nail it in Chopper.

  • KinoEye

    Hmmm. Does anyone else think Naomi… doesn’t quite look like Naomi here? Maybe it’s the hair/makeup, but she doesn’t look like herself to my eyes. The jumpsuit is pretty good, though.

    • ryenerman

      I was so distracted with asking myself “is that really Naomi?” that I didn’t even get to her jumpsuit until my second run through.

  • alyce1213

    Eric Bana may not have gotten the flashiest press and hot-guy attention over the years, if that’s what’s meant by not taking off, but that’s fine with me. He has quite a decent body of work, including Troy, Munich, The Other Boleyn Girl, etc. His pants are too long, but I like him. He’s a very good actor.

    • VicD

      He was great in The Time Traveler’s Wife. Perhaps it’s because he always came back naked!

  • VicD

    These are the same kind of knife-shaped lace inserts that looked so awful on Kate Winslet (Rocknroll) last week, blending with her dreadful fried hair. They are perfectly deployed here, echoed by the earring shape, wonderful color and placement, and not fighting with the hair. If it were a face-off, Naomi Watts would win.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I love that jumpsuit. Fit and color looks amazing on her.

    • kimmeister

      Yes, agree with the uncles that everything about the jumpsuit (shockingly) works on her, other than the hem length.

  • sienna elm

    I think maybe they were both taller when they got dressed…and somehow shrunk in the limo on the way to the event.

  • marlie

    Bana is pretty hot. I’m a sucker for the salt & pepper hair & beard/stubble. The suit’s fine, if a bit boring. Naomi is mostly nailing it here. Other than needing a hem, this jumpsuit looks fabulous on her. Attagirl.

  • lunchcoma

    What is with these pants so long that they cover the entire foot? They don’t look good, and they have to be hard to walk in!

  • Jacob Bowen

    I LOVE her earrings! I don’t like the nipple arrows though…

  • jw_ny

    Dishwater has more appeal that him.

    That color is fantastic, but it’s what is doing the heavy lifting for her look. Almost any other color and I’d probably hate it. Neck up…very pretty.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Agree 100% on Eric Bana’s lack of appeal. Never could see it. I do think Naomi Watts is pulling off that rarest of feats– making a pantsuit not look cringeworthy. Still not my cuppa, but it’s OK.

  • Serving up middle management at happy hour, complete with showy watch. Do better, honey.

  • mjmiller77

    eek. Hate the hair. And she’s got saggy boobs. What up with that?!

  • Sidestepping the obvious “Eric Banal” joke? Ok. I’ll take the low-handing fruit.

  • I don’t like the hems on her jumpsuit, but it is the perfect rich eurotrash look for a Bulgari event in Switzerland. She’s in oligarch-wife drag. I bet she left a fur in the cloakroom.

  • colorjunky

    Has she had work done??

  • demidaemon

    At least he’s wearing a belt. Agree about the hem, but everything ankle up is working like bonkers.

  • Kelly

    I think he just missed his era. He looks like the perfect hero for a 1960s-vintage TV western. Put him in some chaps and a leather vest with a lot of laconic dialogue, and I bet he’d be golden.

  • Deedles

    Good grief. He’s really starting to look like my High School AP Chem teacher and NOT in a good way.

  • Virginia Zint

    Gumby legs
