Admittedly, there are times when they take it too far and we have to resist the urge to reach out to our monitors and try to slap them somehow, but we just love their whole pretentious-as-fuck schtick, for some reason.
Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly attend The Cinema Society & Audi screening of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” at SVA Theater in New York City. Jennifer Connelly is wearing a Louis Vuitton dress from the Fall 2015 collection.
They look like classic Bond villains. That could never be a bad thing in our eyes.
His whole look, on most other men, would induce a rash of bitchy criticism from us for being boring or making him look like a Secret Service Agent. But somehow, on Paul Bettany, this just looks right. Don’t get us wrong, we like it better when he wears something a little more modern with a little more oomph, but he’s got that rare, fine-boned Euro quality that allows him to make an extremely basic suit and tie look incredibly chic. The glasses and the hair help.
She’s been insisting on weird silhouettes and sleeves for the longest time now. Sometimes it works, sometimes it bugs. We’d say this falls somewhere in the middle. The fabric is pretty, but it seems a little off-season. Not a bad look for her overall, but we tend to think it’s being helped by his very basic and low-key chic.
And you have to admit, they have the most spectacular “Judging you” faces, which is, of course, why we’re so enthralled with them. Our game on that front is pretty world class, if we do say so ourselves, but these two are like supervillains of judging.
