Evangeline Lilly and Paul Rudd at Comic-Con 2014: “Ant-Man” Panel

Posted on July 28, 2014

‘Tis a rare moment when a malestar outshines a ladystar on the red carpet. “Tis an even rarer thing to have this happen at Comic-Con. Neither of these things are as rare as our use of “’tis,” however; which we have never used before and will likely never use again. Like “Methinks,” there is simply no way to use it in the ironic sense and you will always wind up sounding just a teeny bit insufferable. Just a skosh.

Anyway, he’s cute and she looks totally honky-tonk. There. We said it. Now tell us:

Are we wrong? This looks like a rom-com where the son of a wealthy family brings home the roadside waitress he accidentally married in Vegas and she teaches them all the value of her folksy ways and simple homespun wisdom.

We managed to pinch out 50 words on the use of “’tis,” but when it comes to her ensemble, we’re a little dumbstruck. It’s all bad, but the only thing we can manage in the way of an assessment is “JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL, THOSE SHOES ARE FRICKIN HIDEOUS.”

Look, we keep saying that Comic-Con is a place where the stars can relax their style and embrace the casualness of the atmosphere, but the criticism here isn’t that she’s underdressed (if anything, he’s overdressed); it’s that these items all look terrible on her and combine to make for an extremely un-photogenic outfit.

And come on; the hair is just plain bad.
