Virgin Atlantic’s Vivienne Westwood Uniform Launch Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on July 02, 2014

Darlings, this is the week America celebrates its independence from the tyranny of those filthy English dogs. And ironically, because American celebs tend to check out of the scene right around now, this is the week we always find ourselves featuring an array of British celebrities. Because they don’t care about freedom.

Let’s do our part as good Americans and judge them. And then throw them in Boston Harbor.


Matt Smith

We’re Bad Americans.

Well, it’s a Vivienne Westwood party. Someone was bound to show up like a post-dinner table-cloth.



Douglas Booth in Vivienne Westwood Fall 2014

 Absolutely not. Good Americans would never stand for this.



Hayley Atwell

Are those shorts?  Because no. This is not what our forefathers fought and died for.



Lily James in Mulberry

This is cute, but she seems to have time-traveled here from March or so.



Luke Evans in Vivienne Westwood Fall 2014

It’s sharp, but he looks like he just got out of a pool. A pool of ENGLISH OPPRESSION, no doubt.



Dan Stevens in Vivienne Westwood Fall 2014

Eliza Doolittle

This feels appropriate. Vivienne Westwood, after all. If it was 1988, this would be the girl at the party you hit up for the good coke.



Dominic Cooper

Just got off work.

 We find this all irredeemably twee, which is something that all good Americans are sworn not to support. It’s in the Constitutional Declaration of Allegiance.  On the other hand: kitten.

Behold, your true mother.

  • RussellH88

    Is Douglas Booth the British Bieber?

    • Carleenml

      I’m guessing Eliza Doolittle is.

      • Lori

        Yup. Hence her high position on my irrational hate list. She triggers my slap reflex every time.

        • marlie

          I’m going to have to use “slap reflex” sometime soon.

          • Sarah

            I already had a use for it today, and didn’t know what to say. Can always count on the BKs to give me the right term for….whatever I’m talking about!

        • didgerdoni

          That’s not irrational in any way, form, or fashion.

        • MilaXX

          Triggered my slap reflex is exactly the feeing I had seeing this woman barefoot with hr feet proper in a chair in the dining section of WF.

        • Wait, why is she the British Bieber?
          … I actually find her album really enjoyable pop music.

          • lundibleu

            I would say she’s not. I think the closer thing to British Bieber are the One Direction boys. Blech.

            Plus Eliza’s mother is a Tony award winning actress (the original Eponine, actually) who also represented the UK at Eurovision, and her grandmother founded one of the big British stage schools.

          • I love her album (there I said it) and this outfit (wouldn’t you want to go to a party in satin pajamas?) so I was a little dejected by the hate.

          • fursa_saida

            The One Direction boys at least have some idea how to behave.

        • Lovely Rita

          This makes me sad because her mother is Frances Ruffelle, the original Eponine, whose voice I adore.

      • random_poster

        Since my mind automatically goes to My Fair Lady when I hear the name, I just snorted when I saw this Eliza Doolittle in a pic (pun intended, since TLo made a coke reference).

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        She’s trying waaaaay too hard to be outrageous-OK, dear, you’re wearing your bestie’s bra, and your boyfriend’s pajamas. We’re not impressed.

    • Aidan B

      He certainly dresses like it.

    • Dino Bonačić

      God no, Jamie is talented.

  • Noah

    God Bless Debbie Harry.

    • GorgeousThings

      Debbie Harry OWNS it!!!

      • At least she didn’t have to buy new shoes…those models from the ’70’s DID come back after all.

        • gabbilevy

          And she’s literally wearing a flight attendant jacket. The one from the collection, If I tried on a blazer and it gapped like that, I would put it back on the rack immediately.

      • H2olovngrl

        Debbie Harry’s like, “America, REPRESENT, Bitches!!!”

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Bow Down Now.

  • Frank_821

    Dan Stevens needs to put 10 lbs back on

    • ConnieBV

      I didn’t like Dan Stevens when he looked like a middle-aged barrister, but this Dan Stevens I would turn into a Dan-Stevens shaped smear on my carpet.

    • Noah

      Body commentary isn’t necessary.

    • desertsweetpea


    • jonnyf8

      20 lbs

  • greymain

    WHUT TF happened to Dan Stevens ?????

    • Le_Sigh

      I was just coming here to say the exact same thing!

      Like SERIOUSLY. Its the reaction I have EVERY TIME I see him on the RC these days. Is he auditioning to be the Donnie Walhberg of One Direction or something? It’s like a bad living photoshop job.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        I can easily – too easily – imagine Dan and Eliza Doolittle aggressively making out in the center of the room because they are tacky people who like to make others uncomfortable.

    • Liliter

      You guys need to watch “The Guest” movie trailer. Because it’s WTF when did Dan Stevens get so HOT

    • jif

      You probably know this, but, apparently, he couldn’t take being referred to as “fat Matthew” by the internets.

      • travelgirl28

        Well, I’m finding his new look a little scary. Not sure that’s what he’s going for.

    • H2olovngrl

      Dan Stevens can’t seem to see the forest for the trees.

    • Eileen Duffy

      I want his shirt.

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    Debbie Harry is serving up Debbie Harry realness. Drag momma I love you.

  • jerseyginger

    Isn’t that Dominic Cooper? Otherwise, McNulty has Benjamin Button disease.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yes, this is Dominic Cooper, not Dominic West, who will always be Jimmy McNulty, major fuck-up and badboy of the Wire.

      • smayper

        I miss that show so much.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          You and me both. That series was so incredibly well done, I’m still blown away by it. I was born in Baltimore, and grew up in the ‘burbs. Some of my extended family were blue collar workers in the city before those industries either relocated or withered away, and the second season really resonated with me, but it was just amazing. I still remember when they killed off Stringer Bell, and just sitting on the sofa with my mouth hanging open. Great, great series

    • Marph

      Yes, it’s Dominic Cooper, and as T&L said, he just got off work…at the Douche Mall.

  • decormaven

    This is one sad group of folks, save Ms. Harry and Matt Smith.

  • Rhonda Shore

    I love Debbie Harry’s shoes.

  • kbshee

    I can’t get past the backdrop of the same red purse and red shoes.

    • Gatto Nero

      And that purse — is it supposed to be a new Westwood design? Because haven’t we seen that exact bag everywhere for the past couple of years at least?

  • Danielle

    Debbie Harry was a totally unexpected breath of fresh air.

  • decormaven

    I love how in the background of Jessica Brown Findlay’s photo, someone snuck in a lilac clutch in the row of perfectly-positioned red pumps.

    • Gatto Nero

      I’m thinking that’s JBF’s purse.

      • decormaven


      • I was scrolling too fast and thought you meant it was a Just Been Fucked purse and had to go back to see why…

        • Gatto Nero

          Yipes. I guess I should consult the Urban Dictionary before using any abbreviations.

  • Mona_Visa

    Not bad, but let’s shake it up. Everyone give your clothes to the person in the pic above you.

    Still hot.

  • ccboyce

    Are we sure that is Dominic West? That photo doesn’t look like him.

    • EZ Pass

      That’s definitely Dominic Cooper.

  • SewingSiren

    First of all.
    Uniform launch? Is that a thing?
    And I like Lady Sybil and Cousin Matthew.Also wants an Elizabeth I Tee shirt.

    • smayper

      Me too! She’s my role model. Except for the arsenic in the face cream.

  • Charming British rakes are easily confused, but I’m fairly sure that’s Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), not Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West).

  • Well it is obvious to me that the uniform should be changed to what Debbie Harry is wearing. 🙂 At the very least that sequinned fabric should be an integral part of the design.

    • Diane_G

      I would love to see this.

    • Imasewsure

      That is actually what I want from Virgin Air… a bit less stiff upper lip and a bit more Austin Powers!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Oh, behave!

  • sienna elm

    I can’t deal with the two-tone suit jackets. And I actually like how Dan Stevens looks and is dressed, but I have no idea who he is and that probably has lots to do with the upset he seems to have caused here.

    • Frank_821

      He played the male on the first 3 seasons of Downton Abbey. The character of Matthew Crawly. After he wrapped up shooting his final season, he changed his hair color dark and dropped a noticeable amount weight to change up his look as much as possible from the character he became famous for. He co-starred in a re-mounting of the Heiress on Broadway I believe. He seems to now have gone back to his natural hair color

  • RescueMe23

    Uncles – please don’t yell at me – but I was so hoping for a BET Awards red carpet rundown. I will end by thanking you for all you do in the name of fashion.. 🙂

    • barbarienne

      I second this request.

      Actually, I love all the red carpet rundowns. I adore one-liners.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Dan Stevens looks like Tom Felton now.

    Seeing Debbie was a treat after all those cute British kiddies.

    • Agnes Gooch

      Thank you! But what does it say that I first thought to myself, “Oh, Draco Malfoy’s looking good these days.” Which was then followed by, “Oh dear, Matthew Crawley is not looking well these days.” I am so confused now…..

      • Gatto Nero

        He’s looking much thinner than in his Downton days.

        • Shawn EH

          Hollywood has standards, after all.

      • Kayceed

        I inexplicably call him Young Daniel Stevens in my head. It’s a bit odd.

      • demidaemon

        I had the exact same thought!

  • marlie

    Most of these people look like assholes. I know they’re (mostly) wearing Vivienne Westwood AT a VW evnet, but still. NO. Shorts and sneakers with a sportscoat is not ok, nor is wearing your bra and pajamas out in public. Just NO.

    It’s a pity that the looks that I like the most are also the ones that seem like they belong in the Spring or Fall. But can we talk about Matt Smith’s shoes? PERFECTION.

    • Alyssa

      Not just a bra and pajamas, but two pairs of pajama pants. Because that makes sense…NOT!

      • kimmeister

        Oh geez, I hadn’t even noticed they were doubled up.

      • Those may be boxers.

        • formerlyAnon

          That’s what I thought.

    • MilaXX

      Matt’s entire outfit is rocking my world.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Not to mention Matt is rocking many, many peoples’ worlds

    • smayper

      I covet them.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      Eliza Doolittle
      If Eliza Doolittle wanted to wear her pj’s in public, she should have committed to the look and worn bunny slippers. As silly as her outfit is, it’s the “normal” shoes that seems most our of place.

  • Emily Smith

    I thought Dan Stevens was Malfoy when I first glanced at him quickly and I was thinking that was rather unexpected from him. But it’s not Tom Felton. And I still have mixed feelings about the outfit.

    • LeelaST

      I was just going to post the Tom Felton-ish resemblance. It’s disturbing.

  • Grumpy Girl

    I’m disturbed that the kitten on Jamie C-B’s shirt is not aware of that butterfly by his collarbone.

    I’m quite fond of Luke Evans’ shoes.

    But overall, there is such a mix–like people didn’t get the same invite. From shorts to suits? pajamas to cocktail to shorts?

    • marlie

      There are at least 3 different events represented here, based on what these people are wearing, including “pajama party.”

    • Wink

      This is what happens when the party host gets ‘creative’ in the ‘attire’
      section of the invitation. People don’t know WTF to wear, so they show
      up in everything from PJs to a sequined mini to an ombre suit!

  • KT

    I lol’ed really hard at your comment on Dan Stevens’ getup: “WHUT” haaaahaha right there with you

  • Alyssa

    I scrolled all the way down and really only remembered Matt Smith…to die for! Oh, and the kitten shirt…preferably on Matt Smith.

    • gabbilevy

      Eleven could rock that kitten tee.

  • Judy_J

    Am I seeing things, or is the image of Queen Elizabeth I on Dan Stevens’ shirt pulling a Miley Cyrus with her tongue sticking out?

    • Gatto Nero

      I think there’s an actual safety pin through her face.

      • I think that’s a reference to one of the tshirts VW did in her Seditionaries days.

  • mjude

    god bless Debbie Harry

  • Gatto Nero

    The J. Brown Findlay dress is the textbook illustration for “When Westwood Goes Dreadfully Wrong.”
    Love Lily James’ unseasonal coat and boots.
    Looks like Deborah Harry threw on one of those terrible FA uniform jackets over whatever fabulous craziness she was wearing. Would love to see what’s underneath.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    I’ve decided that I love Jamie Campbell’s look!

    • Shawn EH

      Kitten! Non-Bitter variety!

  • Gatto Nero

    I like the color-blocked suit jackets.
    Also quite like what Dan Stevens is wearing [*ducks*].

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      I think Dan Steven’s outfit is my favorite of the bunch actually. Probably why no one is clamoring (or clamouring) for me to write a fashion blog.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Debbie Harry FTW.

  • Love Matt Smith’s shoes, but Douglas Booth seems to have remembered he had a party to go to on his way home from watching Wimbledon.

    Has Debbie Harry ever done a duet with Dolly Parton? And if not, why not?

    • marlie

      As I was scrolling down and just saw the top of DH’s head, I totally thought it was Dolly Parton.

      • Synnae

        That so should have happened at Glastonbury this past weekend, they were both there. It would have been a glittery rhinestone bonanza of divatasticness!

  • muelonil

    If this post was the event, I would stop at the first picture, take a pair of those lovely red pumps and bag, and bug out of there with the good Doctor before any of the catastrophes that followed. .

  • MilaXX

    I’m in whole foods and laughed so hard at Dan Stevens & TLo’s response. It’s like Matt Smith dressed him out of his personal closet & then pranked him by dressing himself venue appropriate

  • Imasewsure

    Debbie Harry…. I love you mommy!! Batshit love

  • V No Privacy

    I didn’t realize Eliza Doolittle was remaking the TLC Creep music video.

  • AnaRoW

    I’m confused by the Haley Atwell comment:

    “Are those shorts? Because no. This is not what our forefathers fought and died for.”

    Our forefather fought and died to keep a British woman from wearing shorts? What am I missing?

    • The joke, apparently.

      • AnaRoW

        Well yeah obviously. I was hoping someone would explain it to me.

        • Hint: Debbie Harry’s not really your mother and Lily James didn’t time travel here from March.

        • christykins

          A bit late to the party, but in case you’re still confused… Because this was posted only two days before the US’s Independence Day but features a lot of British folk, there is a running gag around the theme of American independence from Britian – i.e. references to British oppression, good Americans harshly judging the British, how great the US is, etc.

  • conniemd

    I’ve seen a lot of fashion I blanch at that have bra/swimsuits emulations as the actual top in an outfit, but Eliza Doolittle is the first I remember that actually looked like a bra in my dresser. Why? Why? I mean there’s Victoria’s Secret where undergarments are made to look look sexy and revealing, but this just looks like an ordinary bra and she had to take off her blouse because something bad got spilled on it.

    • formerlyAnon

      Oddly, that’s one of the things I like about the get-up.

  • Shawn EH

    Debbie Harry is serving, and Jessica B-F found the perkiest least punk Westwood she possibly could!

  • Barbara Affolter

    I want- nay, I NEED- that Good Queen Bess t-shirt. I promise I will only use its powers for good.

    I’ll also take the kitten shirt.

    • Mr. J.

      There will a fight for both of these items. Things may get ugly.

      • Barbara Affolter

        I’m okay with that. I promise that I will recite the Tilbury Speech while snatching out weave.

        • Mr. J.

          I will recite the St. Crispin’s Day Speech and, I warn you, wreak havoc. No quarter.

  • Kayceed

    Must say, the narrative here is inspired – one of my favorite posts of late…

  • Is that… Shaggy?? Scooby Dooby Doo!

  • lobsterlen

    You forgot something … Dominic Cooper just off work in MARCH!

    • Mr. J.

      Who is this man? Why is he so pleased with himself? I find him disturbingly attractive, the minx.

      Also….love the dachshund.

  • Violentcello

    I’m glad Matt Smith didn’t wear Dan Stevens’ get up because it seems like exactly the sort of thing he’d wear out and about, but he looks perfect here.

  • kimmeister

    Talk about hiding your light under a bushel, Douglas Booth. You’re so pretty, and that beard literally looks like a bush.

    • formerlyAnon


  • HeisenbergHattie

    Bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa DEBBIE HARRY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LJCdoc

    I’m so confused. We throw red carpet events for airline uniforms now? Whut? Unrelatedly, I cannot actually believe there is a real person named Eliza Doolittle.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    RE: July 4th *makes raspberry noise*

    You do realise that we’re recolonising one person at a time don’t you? 😉

    • Quite. Before you know it, every working actor in Hollywood will be on a British passport.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Can we start a petition to have Debbie Harry show up at all events? Approximately 94% of traditional red carpets desperately need her.

  • JauntyJohn

    My respect for Luke Evans continues to grow. He misses the mark sometimes, but he’s not afraid to bust out some style or take some chances. The man is definitely not phoning it in.

    Also: Marry me, Matt Smith.

    • demidaemon

      I have to give him kudos here, because he actually f***ng tried, unlike some of these asshats.

  • PinkyK

    I still want one of those red totes/bags!

  • Watts

    And this event happened… that picture was taken… ON THE DAY DEBBIE HARRY TURNED 69 YEARS OLD.


    • TwiddlyStun

      Gosh, I remember when my grandma turned 69 and I was so sad because I didn’t know anyone 70 or older and so I figured she was going to die any day. She really did NOT resemble this goddess in any way, although I’ll bet my grandma plucked more chickens in her life than Debbie Harry ever did, so that’s almost the same, right?

  • julnyes

    Matt Smith and Dominic Cooper are good and Debbie Harry is a LEGEND! Everyone else should go home.

  • KinoEye

    Matt Smith isn’t usually my cup of tea, but he is WEARING that suit. It looks like it was made for him. Gorgeous!

  • MilaXX

    Matt & Debiie are bookends of greatness, but I kinda like Dougie’s outfit as well. He just has to lose the black footie socks.

    • formerlyAnon

      I thought they brought an endearing air of doofus to the ensemble.

  • Daktari100

    Debbie Harry is a goddess.

    • Mr. J.

      You speak truth, Daktari.

      Debbie’s eye makeup is bringing out her Marilyn thing powerfully…..I like.

  • Sofia

    i want one of those red purses on display in the background. like, badly. and the shoes. NOW!

  • alyce1213

    Gosh, I was hoping to see the uniforms. I Googled, and they’re quite nice, red, with coat porn.

    Now is as good a time as any for my Debbie Harry story. One Saturday afternoon, about 20 years ago, an actor friend of ours came to visit and see our 2-year-old son, whom he’d never met. I came out of the kitchen, walked into the living room, and who was sitting on my couch? Our friend Jimmy and his friend, Debbie Harry. I plotzed. It took all the strength I could muster not to fall into a pile of jelly, but I managed. They stayed a couple of hours, Debbie played with my kid, we had wine. And I survived. She was wearing jeans, a plaid shirt, and boots — nothing fancy, very funky. That’s it.

    • demidaemon

      That’s so cool!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Very, very cool-I am impressed that you kept yourself together!

    • formerlyAnon

      Excellent story!

  • Judih1

    Sorry Debby Harry – you may be the grand dame – but I think you look horrid. Not a flattering look at all. Bring back the Hefty bag you used to wear with the safety pins

  • Margaret Annie

    So this is what happened to Lady Sybil and Cousin Matthew.

    Also, Matt Smith needs to keep his hair this length. I like.

  • Julie Parr

    Dan Stevens. Just ew. Why did dropping 40 lbs make him look SO MUCH CREEPIER?

    • Hysterectomypants

      There was a skinny serial killer lurking beneath Cousin Matthew all along.

  • Can someone update me on the memo of why everyone hates Eliza Doolittle?

    • amanda lynn

      Wish I could – I have no idea who she is.

      • She’s a British pop singer. Her music is fun. I don’t get the hate – so I’m just going to assume it’s from the judgier side of bitter kittens who don’t see the fun in her outfit for such a silly silly event.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Happy SIXTY NINTH Birthday, Debbie Harry. I have wanted to marry you since before I knew I was a gay boy, and ever since too. You and Olivia Newton John made me gay so your goddaughter Molly Ringwald could steal my awesome Chess King sweaters.

    • JauntyJohn

      Chess King!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Eliza Doolittle has a stupid name that is stolen as we all know. The thing is, she’s the OPPOSITE of anything remotely classy like the “real” Eliza. I want to smack her and then make her get dressed for chrissakes.

    • “stolen” because it couldn’t be an homage?

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Bless Debby Harry for showing the younger women how to wear Westwood-bowing down!
    And Dan Stevens looks as if he’s auditioning for an opening in the Queen Haters

  • sleepycat

    I will take Douglas Booth, Jamie Campbell, Dominic Cooper, and Dan Stevens as roommates. Please and thank you.

  • Anne

    Oh dear, what happened to Matthew Crawley?!

    • myristica_fragrans

      nothing, that’s why he’s at this party.

      • formerlyAnon

        Well, he’s got a new movie coming out this fall, so I expect he’d be out and about.

        (edited to correct movie release time frame brain fart)

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Matt Smith is so adorable- I like to think of him as Wills and Harry’s secret brother.

  • I’m a little disappointed in all the bitter kitten hate – I love what Eliza’s wearing. It reminds me of 90s R&B videos.

    • Hysterectomypants

      I think she’s kind of adorable generally, and she looks goofy but cute here. It’s hard for me to take an airline uniform party seriously enough to be offended by her pajamas.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like what she’s wearing a lot, on a young thing at a not-serious event. Though she also looks like the girl you want to be friends with because she’s fun, but can’t pull it off because she’s either too high maintenance or too self-involved or both.

  • suzanne77

    “Behold, your true mother.” LOL FOREVER. Boys, please never change, you kill me. Love you both!

  • I want Cousin Matthew’s Lizzy the first shirt so bad…

  • mmebam

    I think only Michael Jordan wears better shoes than Luke Evans.

  • formerlyAnon

    Douglas Booth doesn’t bother me, maybe because I can see his black footies under his (ugly) white tennis shoes? Or maybe because I look fondly on his skinny legs.

    Dan Stevens is whittled down to my territory, but I kinda want to give him a hug and say “Honey, we’ll love you even more if you quit trying to be a more downtown 24 than you were when you were 24”

    Eliza Doolittle is the girl you want to like, but she keeps doing things that makes it impossible.

    Debbie Harry gives the impression that much heavy lifting was done to achieve this presentation. Also, that while terrifying at the event, she’d be the one with which to have end-of-evening not-fancy coffee, drinks (and probably a cigarette) on the back porch or in the kitchen afterwards. Shoes kicked off and various stuff untucked/unfastened/removed. THAT would be the conversation of the year.

  • Kerry McCombs

    That Dan Stevens WHUT. Killed me. KILLED me. I laughed for five minutes.

    I love the Vivienne Westwood t-shirts on the guys. But I like monarchs and kittens. If it could be the Kitten Queen, I would buy a t-shirt in every color. (Though I wouldn’t be able to afford that.)

    hahaha love the post, thanks for the laugh!

    Is it wrong that I love Dan Stevens outfit? I think it’s great and he looks so cute!

    We have to agree, it’s Vivienne Westwood so we are bound to see odd fashions percolating through the runway! Love that Virgin Atlantic is utilizing her talents!

    While I have no idea who Dan Stevens may be, he looks fab. and I want to unbutton Debbie Harry’s blazer.

    Dan Stevens can Whut all over me. Plus, is Queen Elizabeth smoking a spliff on his shirt?

    • Gatto Nero

      I think that’s a safety pin.

  • Omg Debbie YES.

  • t bell

    Debbie Harry was there; the others and their clothes can be dismissed.

    Best T+Lo comments ever.
    The men look more femme than the women do. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (one point to me for the Seinfeld reference).

    Dan Stevens seems to be the only one unaware that he’s dressing like the sleazy bad guy in a 90s Lifetime movie. Should we tell him?
