“Charlie’s Angels” Stars Kristen Stewart, Elizabeth Banks, Ella Balinski, and Naomi Scott at NYC Photocall

Posted on November 08, 2019

Okay, it’s time for us to admit something here. We’re big enough to consider the idea that despite our decade of reporting and opining on red carpets, we’re the ones with the problem, but…

 

 

We really, really, REALLY don’t understand the promotional style plan for this film. At first, we entertained the idea that, because this version was completely woman-powered and is being billed as a more modern take on the Charlie’s Angels concept, the plan was to keep the team’s focus away from glamour and sexy looks. It makes a certain amount of sense as a promotional plan, if that’s how your Charlie’s Angel project is meant to be seen. But here’s the part we don’t get: the AGGRESSIVELY goofy and awkward-looking fashion they wound up choosing.

 

 

Kristen Stewart in HUF

K Stew can get away with a lot of different styles and can work a lot of risky fashion, but this Poochie drag is borderline hilarious – and we don’t think it was meant to be.

 

 

Elizabeth Banks in Cushnie

It’s okay. It’s the best of the lot and we think it represents her attempt to step up for the red carpet, while stepping back as the director to let her stars shine. But we can’t say we love the shiny or the goofy neckline.

 

 

 

Ella Balinski

Seriously, what is this? A pink satin safari suit with gigantic death-metal boots? Were these outfits put together by throwing darts at pictures of each item? Again, there’s this sense of an attempt to make the Angels look more “street,” and perhaps a bit more kickass confident. Pardon us for being dogmatic about it but pink satin does not get either of those feelings across and the boots look like she grabbed something as she exited a burning building.

 

 

Naomi Scott in Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

Again, there’s this sense of “I’ll wear a bra, but in order to make it not too sexy, I’ll pair it with hilariously awful pants.” Sure, it’s a plan. If the plan is to make you look goofy.

 

 

 

We don’t know… we just don’t get “Charlie’s Angels” from these looks, but it’s not because they’re not wearing sexy gowns and bathing suits. It just all feels like a weirdly misguided attempt to update the look of the franchise, but the ensembles are too distractingly odd.
