Pairs Division: Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth at the Romeo and Juliet Premiere

Posted on September 25, 2013

Well, they’re a pretty couple of star-cross’d lovers, aren’t they?


Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth attend the “Romeo and Juliet” Los Angeles Premiere. Hailee is wearing a Prabal Gurung dress from the Spring 2014 collection paired with Brian Atwood shoes and a Cathy Waterman ring. Douglas is in head-to-toe Tom Ford.

SPOILER: They both die at the end.

Is it us or do they both need a lesson in proportion? We’re a little surprised by Hailee, although much as we love her style, she has been known to go questionable. We’re just not loving her dress. All the embellishments look haphazard, we don’t love the length on her, and weird neckline is weird. Also: big, clunky shoes with that hem. Score: 6.5/10 – and most of that’s hair and makeup.

He purdy. But look: we love a really slim-cut suit on a slim-cut young guy. It’s a great look; especially if you’ve got the kind of Euro-good looks that go with it. There’s a reason these types of suits always look good on pouty-faced teenagers from Eastern Europe walking a runway. But it really doesn’t look right with such a wide tie; especially when the tie, shirt and pocket square are all competing prints. And the jacket vaulted past “slim cut” and landed squarely on “too damn tight.” Kudos for keeping such a busy look unified by toning the colors down – and we do appreciate what he’s going for here – but ultimately, it all looks ill-fitting and askew. Score: 7.5/10. Not because of his pretty face, but because with only slight adjustments, this could be a killer-chic look for him.

Combined Score: 7/10 – and frankly, that seems a tiny bit generous overall.
