Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan at Starz’s “Outlander” Season 5 Premiere

Posted on February 17, 2020

Post-Oscars exhaustion has left us several days behind in expressing our opinions on these two looks, but goodness, kittens, when has a little lateness ever prevented us from letting our opinions fly?



Besides, it wouldn’t be a season of Outlander if we didn’t piss off part of the fan base with our opinions, now would it? Oh, we’re kidding. We’ll say this: they’re definitely better at this than they used to be.

Each of them have settled into a sort of restrained elegance in their poledancing styles. It’s the kind of thing we’ve seen play out as celebrities go from “Please watch our new show” to “Our show is beloved and well-established” and their promotional styles go from attention-seeking to confidently low-key. She happens to be well-suited to this style, but we think both the earrings and the winged eye were mistakes. The dress is great, even if it sits way too low – which is largely by design.

He’s more or less got his hair figured out by now. It seems any style other than romance-hero curls is going to look a little helmet-y on him, but this works. We’re surprised by how well he takes to a double-breasted jacket. Everything about this look works except for the tiny shirt collar and lack of a tie. When you go to the trouble of a pocket square and a killer watch, finish the look.
