Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe at the TV Guide “Outlander” Event

Posted on March 31, 2016

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe attend the “TV Guide Magazine Celebrates STARZ’s ‘Outlander'” at Palihouse in West Hollywood, California.

Darlings, let’s check in on a gorgeous pseudo-couple taking the first tentative steps together on their new poledance.

Initial assessment? Much improved. Things got a little scary there last year when they were called upon to be pretty at the drop of a hat for season one of Outlander. There was much bad red carpetry to be found from both of them. But this all looks pretty good from where we’re standing. Let’s move in closer and make them both really uncomfortable with our staring.

We declare this to be … good but not great. The suit is nice, bit the jacket and vest are clearly too tight on him and the shirt and tie choices don’t do anything for the look. In addition, we’re forced to say what we almost always say when it comes to his red carpet appearances: Dude, enough with the lady hair. It looks terrible on you. If you can’t go out in the full Jaime Fraser wig, than find a better way to style what you have, but these delicate little mullets aren’t doing you any favors.

It’s pretty. Not setting us on fire, but this isn’t necessarily the event for that. While we might have liked a little ore zhuzh in the hair and a little more ooomph in the makeup, she looks good, for the most part. Although that bodice is overdesigned and looks sillier the longer we stare at it.

We’re nitpicky bitches, but they certainly are pretty, no?
