We coined the term “Pitting” for men who put no effort in on the red carpet and “Pulling a Jolie” for beautiful people on the red carpet who rely on their looks as a replacement for style. Well he’s not Pitting, that’s for sure. And while Angie has every reason in the world to continue to rely on her looks, it’s nice to see her in something other than a funereal basic black gown. We don’t entirely love the shape of it – seems kind of blousey through the top – but the sparkle, combined with a beautifully made up face (which is itself kind of refreshing) made her look every inch a movie star.
As for him, he’s doing just fine. The jacket seems a bit big on him, but he looks so much better with short hair and a groomed face.
And if you’re loving our Oscars red carpet bitchery, you might consider checking out our new book, darling! “A hilarious critique of celebrity culture,” they called it! We’re proud. And shameless.
