Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan attend the “Outlander” Season 2 Premiere in New York City.
Ooops, they did it again.
Whenever we have criticisms for the red carpet styles of these two very pretty people, it almost always comes down to the same thing. With her, it’s the finishing and with him, it’s the hair – ALWAYS THE HAIR.
Her first: This is pretty. We like the play of the very pale green skirt against the white top. We also like the little bits of demure sparkle. But there’s a reason you don’t see a lot of hemp dresses on the red carpet: they don’t photograph well. Hemp fabric tends to look a little rougher and more wrinkled than the average red carpet gown and it’s no different here. That skirt looks like it was recently unwadded. Also, the matching orthopedic shoes are terrible and her hair is doing her no favors.
As for his lady hair, we always get pushback on our criticisms of it as if we’d asked him to cut it all off. We have no issue with the length of his hair, especially if it’s in service to the role. But there’s an insistence on slicking it back into a curly mullet and parting it that makes it look terrible on him. Zhuzh that shit out, Jamie Fraser style. Stop trying to tame it.
