Some came clowny, some came Boho, some came SUPER-serious and some came all sexy-like. It’s the New York premiere of The Joker and NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO SELL THIS THING.
Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet (in The Vampire’s Wife)
Our first reaction was “Hunh. It’s weird that Aquaman would be here at a Joker movie,” before we realized that technically, they’re supposed to be in the same cinematic universe (more or less). Anyway, of course he came in a very Joker-esque purple suit. He’s not only a good company man, but he’s got a sense of humor about his style. He’s so much better than the days when he showed up in nothing but leather vests and flip-flops. We’re not all that into The Vampire’s Wife’s extremely limited aesthetic, but she’s very well suited to it. We just don’t love that textile.
Mr. Phoenix would like to express his profound condolences for your family’s loss and also inquire as to whether you’ve decided on the oak or copper coffin.
Rooney Mara in Hiraeth
It’s not her film, she’s here to support her man, which means maybe it’s not the time for some attention-getting style swerve. But man, does this feel stale.

As committed homosexuals, we’ve always rolled our eyes or outright loathed lingerie on the red carpet. It always feels like such a lazy style or design choice. On the one hand, we want to say “Lady, you are so much more interesting than this.” On the other hand, that really is, if nothing else, a unique take on the lingerie dress. And she does tend to look amazing no matter what so it’s all kind of a wash. She’s gorge, the dress is meh.
