Her dress gets better the longer we look at it. We thought it was fairly low-key at first glance, but as we noticed the textural quality of it, the way the beading catches the light, and the spectacular things the shape is doing for her butt, we had to admit that this is one really well chosen dress. That was not, however, well chosen underwear because it’s practically glowing under the glare of the cameras. The shoes are nice, if you don’t peer too closely at her poor toes, but the color clashes slightly with the dress. Her makeup is really pretty.

He is SUAVE AS FUCK. He’s doing it exactly right. Except for the duck face, which he needs to stop doing immediately because James Bond don’t play that way.

  • Kim Elmore

    I gasped at the cute shoes until I noticed the… plastic? lining. Oh noes. Also, I noted his duck face. Points for me πŸ™‚

  • Nikko Viquiera

    THIS MAN. He’s aging so gracefully and sexily. Oh yeah, she’s pretty.

    • MM4321

      I second T&Lo’s comments on Pierce 200%! Lose the duck face and he’s perfecto.

      • H2olovngrl

        I *think* he might be struggling with the flashes, but I could be wrong. That seems more squint than ducky to me.

    • sienna elm

      He has always had it, as far as I’m concerned…even when he was buried under all that Remington Steel hair in the 80s.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        He will always be Remington Steele to me. Sigh.

        • DebbieLovesShoes

          Me, too

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      Right? Doesn’t look like he’s had any “work” done, either, which I love!

  • KinoEye

    Pierce’s lemon-sucking face distracted me from how suave he does indeed look. Love her hair. That shade of red really works for her.

  • Karen Belgrad

    He’s giving off some serious Blue (Remington) Steel.

  • tmetz85

    My first thought was Pierce, wipe your face…there’s Baldwin all over it.

  • Mothra

    That dress looks really lovely. Her hair could use a little work though and there’s something up with her toes. Is one broken?

    • Sarah

      Mashed, more like.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      It looks like it is dying from lack of blood flow.

  • Truth: In addition to no shapewear, I wore bright orange lace underwear underneath my white chiffon dress. It was not a well thought out decision.

    • Constant Reader

      I have on occasion made a last-minute outfit change and then couldn’t take my sweater off no matter how hot it got because I was wearing a black bra under a white shirt.

    • kimmeister

      I wisely wore a nude thong under my white pants today. I wouldn’t have worn white pants, however, had I known that the company photographer was going to ask me to pretend to look at our newly built stakeholder center for the company newsletter, so that he could take a picture of me. From behind.

      • Abigail Chang

        That is a “hands held pensively behind back” moment if ever there was one.

      • demidaemon

        I don’t understand the picture from behind thing at all. What’s the point (unless he’s creepily leering at your ass)?

  • Anna

    Ugh, those shoes. Cannot with the plastic.

    The duck face needs to Die Another Day. And stay that way.

    • StellaZafella

      I really think Bronson was just caught in the middle of making motor boat sounds after she told him to get his hand off her ass.

  • formerlyAnon

    I like the dress and shoes on her, together, and in theory.

    James Bond, piffle. I will never be anything but positive about this man because he actually allowed his actual “singing” to be used in Mamma Mia. Which was a literal laugh-out-loud moment for me when I saw it the first time, to the embarrassment of my daughter and amusement of her friend who’d made the error of sitting with me in the theater.

    • Emily Dagger

      Mamma Mia is one of those films where I don’t *like* it as a movie, but I LOVE it for how much every member of the cast was clearly enjoying the hell out of filming it. Especially Colin Firth.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yes. It’s high on the list of movies that can make me smile.

      • Anna

        His speech introducing Meryl Streep at the Oscars STILL cracks me up: “Meryl, mama mia! We were in Greece. We danced. I was gay and we were happy. I probably fathered your only daughter…”

      • MRC210

        Me too. I love a handsome guy who doesn’t mind looking goofy.

      • demidaemon

        I love the movie too, but my memory of first watching it is affected by the fact that my friend watching it with me consumed an entire bottle of wine and got a little weepy during it (Meryl’s number before the wedding doesn’t help. Lady just sells it).

        • formerlyAnon

          Friends! Ensuring memorable moments of all kinds. πŸ˜‰

    • demidaemon

      Yeah, it’s bad. It sounds marginally better on the soundtrack. Marginally.

  • Anna Vasquez

    Would it make any sense for me to say that his face LOOKS like he SOUNDS?

    • Kathy_Marlow

      Yes! YESSS!

    • alyce1213


  • Jennifer Bober

    Obviously she did not have a mother who could see the absence of a slip from 150 paces to make her always aware of the effect of underpinnings on a garment. The lines of the dress really are quite lovely though.


  • Imasewsure

    The dress is sort of dull on her… maybe a bit looser than on the model or a bit too long…. although I do think the back is pretty. No love for the shoes…. He looks great as usual (ignoring the duck of course)

  • MilaXX

    Not bad all. She needs a few minor tweaks like a navy bra & panties and a shoe a half a size large and he needs to stop it with the duck face. Overall this is pretty good. Two adults, dressed for the same event, wearing seasonally appropriate clothing. Well done.

    • marlie

      Amazing that “Two adults, dressed for the same event, wearing seasonally appropriate clothing” is worthy of applause. But they do look great.

  • Crystal

    Pierce Brosnan IS suave.

    Like in the dictionary next to Suave Pierce Brosnan is on the list of names in the description.

  • majorbedhead

    God DAMN, Pierce Brosnan. God. Dayum. Suave as fuck indeed.

  • Sarah

    The dress is cool – love me some navy – but I hate those shoes. They don’t match, they have plastic, and they are causing a phalangeal mashup of epic proportions. He is always perfect, then he has to ruin it with the I-just-got-shot-with-a-grapefruit-in-the-eye face.

  • Capt. Renault

    And suddenly I’m toying with the idea of a ‘Never Say Never Again’ comeback, just to show everybody he’s still got it.

    Edit: It could be ‘Never Say Never Again Again’. Get on it, Hollywood.

  • Sanglots longs

    I don’t understand how a dress that must cost more than a grand doesn’t have a proper lining. Can anyone explain? Is it a fashion thing, a manufacturing thing, or some other thing?

    • Wink

      Looks like the model is wearing tights under her dress. Perhaps that’s how they thought everyone would wear it.

      • Sanglots longs

        Even with tights, for “real-life” wearing, I’d want a lining to keep the dress from clinging to the hosiery, and to keep the fabric from stretching or sagging. A lining makes most dresses hang better and last longer–which is certainly something I’d want it I were actually paying money for the garment! If it were given or lent to me, maybe I’d care a bit less…And maybe this is the runway version, where the slight sheerness is desired. Never mind. I just remembered I’m applying middle-aged criteria to something obviously not intended for my demographic (which stinks, because that color and shape would actually look pretty great on plenty of regular ladies over 40).

        • Wink

          Funny! Yeah, this may be the ‘Project Runway version’… not meant for real-life wearing.

      • demidaemon

        I wish Olga had worn the tights. There is just something about them that ups the dress’ appeal.

  • Wink

    Just realized that Pierce Brosnan has been doing the “Justin Bieber / Jaden Smith face” since before those kids were born.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I think Pierce is imitating James Dean, who was quite possibly the originator of the duck face. On him it looked good. These whippersnappers today are imitating Dean fourth or fifth-hand without even realizing it.

      • TwiddlyStun

        There you go. That’s the real Patient Zero in the duck-face epidemic. James Dean!

  • That dress really is quite charming, I would have one with silver shoes, though.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I like the runway styling better, but what she’s wearing is more appropriate for the occasion. I don’t mind the transparency, either. No obvious underwear lines, you just glimpse her curves.

    Pierce. Rawr.

  • katetastrophe

    Last week there was a piece on him on Sunday Morning at his home in Hawaii. I have no idea what was said because I was mesmerized by his golden glow. Just a fine, fine looking man.

  • decormaven

    Such a pretty dress, and the shoes are a nice complement. Wish she had some polish on the toes- nothing showy, but something other than bare toes. He’s looking fine, albeit a bit ruddy at the forehead.

  • msdamselfly

    Love the beading on the dress

  • J.W.

    There is a reason clear plastic shoes are called “pickled pigs feet” shoes…

    • kimmeister

      Egads, never heard that one before.

      • J.W.

        Oh yes…Google some images… πŸ™‚

  • marlie

    Aw, dad brought his daughter to the company awards banquet.

    Seriously, though, they both do look really nice, eve if he does look a little bit “banker-ish.”.

  • BLauDGaspode

    Sorry, but all I see are nematodes swimming around on her dress. Gross.

  • frannyprof

    That dress is giving me Monica Lewinsky flashbacks…and her poor toes, indeed. Ouch.

    • alyce1213

      Ouch! on the ML flashback, but you’re so right. Hey — remember Linda Tripp, that awful person?

  • SewingSiren

    Love the dress. But with those yellow stockings it makes my heart stop. Definitely wearing yellow stockings with a navy blue dress this fall.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Her dress looks like I brought a dress to summer day camp and we glued friendships bracelets (made with our “pretty beads”) onto the dress…that being said it is kind of cute. Now I have an idea for a fun summer school class next year!

  • kimmeister

    I’m ooged out by that dress, because it looks like it has sparkly tapeworms crawling all over it.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    love the dress. wish it was hemmed just a wee bit higher.

  • alyce1213

    No scores? I think her dress is pretty.
    I caught an old episode of Remington Steele the other day on MeTV. He was quite a beautiful young man, and he’s becoming quite the silver fox. Always impeccable, isn’t he?

  • Tlazolteotl

    I love this on the runway with the yellow tights and the loafers.

  • Lilyana_F

    She is so stunning… I’m loving that dress on her

  • TwiddlyStun

    Could that be Patient Zero in the duckface epidemic? GAH!

  • Miss wks

    pretty soon he won’t be able to open his eyes….or his mouth….

  • PastryGoddess

    mmmmm pretty people. yay!

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Love him and have loved him ever since Remington Steel. Don’t care what face he is making he is, as you say, “Suave as fuck”. Oh, and there’s some girl there in the photo with him, and she’s wearing a dress.

  • ktr33

    the shoes have that clear plastic, which is unacceptable. period.

  • They both look beautiful.

  • Stubenville

    Brosnan’s doing duck face? It’s not loose dentures? Whew.

  • Shawn EH

    B-b-but that’s the wrong Bond for her, does not compute!

  • evave2

    Uncles, he’s NOT James Bond anymore, so can give minor duckface if he wants.

    I think these two were the couple of the summer on the red carpet. She looks wonderful. (I don’t care about the plastic or whatever shoe lining, they look cute at the distance anybody would be seeing them.) And you are so right, EVERYTHING is spot on with him. Nice to have the real pro out and about.

  • Thank God she didn’t borrow the yellow tights worn by the model. Object lesson in how to ruin a beautiful dress! The back of the dress is really stunning.
    Uncles, you should have done this as a “pairs division” post. I would give each of them a 9!

    • demidaemon

      I disagree. I love the yellow tights with the dress.

  • Columbinia

    Unusual that someone makes a show of derriere through sheer fabric. Hmm. On another subject, Brosnan looks distinctly undelighted to be there.

  • what not

    Some of the swirls look like seahorses, which makes me happy. On the other hand, I’m really tired of all the party in the front, dull in the back garments we’ve been seeing over the last couple years.

  • grasshack

    LOVE him !!!

  • spirit52

    ‘under pinnings’ come in every damn color of the rainbow, no need for this slip-up.

  • AlisonS

    I’ll still take Craig as my Bond, but Pierce is really making me come around. I totally get the face. Picture him nodding going “uhuh” and you’ll get it. He did it a lot in Thomas Crown Affair.

  • yethica

    Dude. He is Pierce Fucking Brosnan. Of course he is “suave as fuck”. Also: I want that dress.

  • Peeve

    Isn’t duck face pretty much all Daniel Craig does???

  • There is nothing between the two of them I don’t like. Sumptuous. Both of them. I want to be alone with those shoes she wearing. Gah-gorgeous.

  • e jerry powell

    Except for the duck face, which he needs to stop doing immediately because James Bond don’t play that way.

    Reeks of Michael Lucas, and Brosnan is so much better than that.

  • MannahattaMamma

    Do you suppose she wishes that she could one day make a movie with a co-stair who isn’t almost old enough to be her father? (Great dress, though, and I think the shoes are actually kind of fabulous)

  • I certainly mean don’t mean insulting, and they both look good, but the age difference makes the two look like a well-heeled man and his trophy wife. And yeah, wearing white granny panties wasn’t the wisest decision Olga had made.
