Pairs Division: Hayek and Banderas

Posted on November 18, 2011

Most family-oriented big screen entertainment passes us right by. Except during the holidays, when stuff like the Shrek movies always seemed to be playing in someone’s family room while the grownups have cocktails, we’ve never really been exposed to most of it. And yet we laugh every time we see one of the ads for “Puss in Boots” and briefly imagine that we might actually sit in a theater to watch it. It must be a cat owner thing, because that frigging commercial for the movie about the animated penguins makes us run from the room screaming.

Anyway, we wanted to feature these two for a while as they make the rounds for the movie, but his outfits have been so infuriatingly bad – like, “running to the hardware store” bad – that we haven’t been able to work up the energy to yell at him. He put a modicum of effort in this time, so he finally gets the honor of our opinions.


Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas attend the Premiere of “Puss In Boots” in Buenos Aires. Salma Hayek is wearing a Giambattista Valli dress.

HE: Is working absolutely the right kind of look for him. The print shirt with a suit and no tie combo can go in many directions, not all of them good, but this looks chic, sexy, stylish, and age-appropriate on him. Our only issue is that the cut of the pants looks a bit old man; high-waisted and baggy. We’re not suggesting a skinny pant, but he could have done with some tailoring on the lower half. Score: 8/10, which is damn generous, considering the low effort involved.

SHE: Looks pretty, but we’re not loving that chain detail around her waist and the skirt is a bit too full on her lower half. It’s a pretty dress and she looks good, but it’s not as flattering as it could be. Hair and makeup are pretty and the shoes are KILLA. Score: 8.5/10.

Combined Score: 8.25/10. Well done, sultry cartoons.
