COSETTE I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.
The only bonus Eddie Redmayne would be NO Eddie Redmayne! Can’t stand the sight of his overprivileged gormless face.
We don’t like to bag on people’s DNA here… But he was terrible in My Week With Marilyn, so I have concerns. Then again, Marius was, let’s be honest, sort of a dope.
So sorry, I love Eddie Redmayne. Don’t be mean to a ginger AND don’t start with the dopey ginger-is-a-slur conversation. And is Amanda Seyfried pocket size? Those are five inch heels with a two inch platform and she is still only shoulder high to everyone!
I’ve never seen Eddie Redmayne in anything, but his interview in this month’s InStyle made me guffaw. He talked about baking a super salty ham one Christmas, which caused his family to wake in the middle of the night completely dessicated. He now harbors Gwyneth Paltrow-like aspirations to start a cooking website called Salty Ham.
GOOP will cut a b**** with her 1200 year old ancient treasure hand hammered Japanese steel chef’s knife that she just happened to find lying in the grass on a weekend jaunt. Dessicated family will be the least of his problems.
Aw, I love Eddie Redhead even more now for the ham story (swoon). I wouldn’t eat his food, but I wouldn’t kick him outta bed for eating crackers neither. Oh the clothes. Nice suit. That is all.
I had a dream this dress would be
so different from this hell I’m seeing…
It looks a ghost is lifting it up on the side and it’s weirding me out!
That last picture is a DELIGHT! How adorable are they (minus the superfluous ruffle).
Thank you for continuing the lyrics streak! THAT pleases me. Surprisingly, the ruffle is not what bothers me, it is the way the top has a little eau de shapewear going on.
Bodice doesn’t fit, and apparently she has no friends to tell her to pull her skirt out of her panty waistband.
What a pretty person she is, though.
Those shoes have killed the dream I dreamed.
Gosh I love Russell Crowe. I don’t love his big jacket, though. Nevermind. Call me when your divorce is final, Russell!!
I love Russell Crowe’s big jacket! I want one, and I want him. I guess we won’t battle it out for the jacket, but The Crowe is mine.
Um, we may need to rock/paper/scissors. Because that man, that man is totally huggable right now. I want to squeeze him! And his round cheeks.
Amanda looks adorable in the last picture. They both do. Such real smiles.
I think the “big jacket” is actually a coat, over his suit, because they were outside and he was cold. Hugh Jackman’s wearing his coat, too.
Russell is wearing the manly equivalent of a muumuu in that picture. Man-muu? He-muu? Something like that.
noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. sweet baby j.
What Eliza said.
I am totally charmed by this whole damn cast. Marius and Cosette there look adorable and delighted. I already love this movie.
Her face looks very pretty, but I’m sooooo sick of the hair swept to one side trend. Also agree with the the comment about the haunted ruffle – either that or it’s lined with magnets and the theatre is made of iron.
Oh THANK YOU. I don’t remember who the starlet was who popularized that look IN THE 1940s, but it looked hackneyed by by 1950. Hair on one side only just oozes “Trying SO HARD,” and it just so clearly isn’t worth the effort. Let it flow, or put it up, just don’t sling it all over your left shoulder and call that a hairstyle.
I kind of love the idea of the dress, but (especially in the first slide) they make her body look ridiculously misshapen.
“They” in my previous comment refers to “the ruffles.” Pronoun trouble….
Veronica Lake, I expect…..
YES. Thank you. I am so over Veronica Lake hair.
Not to postbomb, but notice how much better Hathaway looks when those horrid capey sleeves are not in the picture???
And as for Amanda, you KNOW that dress is hyenous if it looks that bad on someone so pretty.
Cosette, this is no way to honour your mother.
I’d have loved an option for something like, “I am found, but she is lost.”
I just laughed so hard at the voting options I can no longer function well enough to pick one.
I love the voting choices more then anything. Just made my day!
i am…hating the length.
The dress is horrible but that face…gorgeous!
Agreed, and while I do hope that the hair-to-one-side trend is reaching it’s natural end, her execution of that is lovely here, as well.
I like this too!
It miiiiiiiight be my universal Les Miserables love spilling over, though.
Loving the Les Miz quotes…but not so much the dress. Definitely not from the “castle on a cloud” collection (though that is my least favorite song in the musical).
On my screen, her hips look about a yard wide, ouch. Her face, however, is gorgeous. And please, let’s not forget Hugh . What a hunk!
I am not normally terribly enamored of Hugh Jackman, but he looks gorgeous in this photo – those crinkly, smiling eyes did it for me.
All I can think is how freezing Hathaway and Seyfriend must be while the dudes get to swan around in pants and overcoats.
I think the dress probably looked better in person, and I appreciate the drama. Overall, I’m saying thumbs up. However, those clodhoppers on her feet are ridiculous. A strappy, maybe sparklier shoe would have been aces.
I actually think I might like this? Or at least respect it. Definitely better than Anne’s white beaded droop. I normally hate ruffles, but this is so exaggerated and I actually think the bodice and neckline are flattering. I do think that the dress might be better longer, with the longest part just barely hitting the floor, maybe. Also, I really like her hair and makeup here.
Why are people in love with her? I don’t get it and never have.
Veronica Mars. She will always be Lily Kane to me, smelling bacon.
See I like her in spite of Veronica Mars — couldn’t stand her character even though I loved the show.
I like her because she really jumped onto the scene in Mean Girls, and the role of Karen was so… well, it required her to act really dim, which can also make it look like you can’t act. And then, she comes up with so much range, and it was so refreshing and surprising! And she does Team Pale Force proud.
I love her as Lily Kane! I just started rewatching Veronica Mars, and I can’t get over how much Kristen Bell and Amanda have changed (which isn’t surprising, considering that show started airing well over 7 years ago).
I’m with you–she’s definitely more second-banana material in any case.
It seems a bit sexist, and downright silly, that the men are wearing suits and coats while the women must “suffer” for their beauty with bare arms and even bare legs. I’m opposed to wearing fur, but would a good wool or even faux fur coat or wrap be out of the question?
I feel like they could also have had the red carpet photos inside a venue instead of out. Hathaway did show up in a coat, so she might not have been that cold for that long. But seriously.
Let’s not chalk it up to a sexist issue either… you know they probably wanted to show off their dresses! Wouldn’t you?
Adorable couple, love the smiles! Oh, youth. Thought Crowe was Hopkins at first glance. But seeing him delighted is indeed delightful.
I could see this dress looking good at a swanky high school prom, that’s about it.
Imagine that dress in peach and white, and you’re looking at the Barbie I had in 1986. No joke. However, I loved that Barbie, so there’s that.
I adore her but with that ruffle she is just a gigantic rosette away from looking like my ‘Dream Date PJ’ doll.
Crowe and Jackman looks ridiculous!
Cleavage on top, fine. Center-boob, ummm. OK. Underboob? Oh come on.
Jackman looks sublime.
I feel like this would come down on the fab side of the fence for me if the ruffle wasn’t haunted. As it is, it’s sitting squarely on the fence and I can’t get it to move to one side or the other.
Perhaps if the dress weren’t neoprene. Anything neoprene reminds me too much of Stella McC, and I lose interest.
I have a long line plunge bra that looks pretty much exactly like the top of that dress, and now that I’ve seen that, I just can’t unsee it. So, basically, it looks like underwear with a giant ruffle to me.
I just read that this dress was made out of neoprene, the stuff wet suits are made out of. That’s….interesting!
At least it would keep her warm!
Amanda’s dress would look much better on her if it was knee length.
She’s a petite girl, and the combination of the big ruffles low on the hips, and the skirt ending at her at the ankles… takes away all the length in her legs. That girl does not have length to spare, even with those damn ugly shoes on.
I think her head looks amazing. The dress could be a lot worse.
First, her makeup & hair are GORGEOUS! Secondly, I like the dress… I think it’s fun! Plus, I love black and ruffles! I applaud her for taking a risk, but this dress is what I would wear to dance the tango, which I love! I mean, I can totally see her dancing the tango in it and looking FABULOUS while doing it! It fits her beautifully, so I say FAB! But, the shoes are all wrong… A classic pointy black stiletto would have been perfect, though!
I have to disagree, I thought her eye makeup is awful. As are her shoes. The dress, whatever. Its OK I suppose.
But man did she win the genetic lottery.
To me the make up makes her eyes appear to be watering (or is that just the cold air)?
I notice that Amy Adams also has the watery eyes issue…hmm.
This is horrifying; she looks like some kind of strange sea-mammal. And the chin implant was a bad choice.
I know it probably wasn’t in your photo subscription, but there was an excellent photo of Anne Hathaway where she’s giving a serious side-eye to Amanda Seyfried’s dress. That facial expression pretty much sums up what I feel about Amanda’s dress.
Amanda herself looks pretty, but that dress is dreadful! It doesn’t do a thing for her. I do love Eddie Redmayne’s blue velvet suit, and it’s amazing how handsome he looks when he actually smiles instead of that stupid “Blue Steel” face he does in the Burberry ads.
But what is the deal with those shoe of his? Are they supposed to be scruffy? Is it the new “Derelectique” look?
so much zoolander!
I don’t care much about her dress but it’s not that horrible. What bugs me are her shoes. I am sick of seeing these kind of shoes on anyone.
I need an option for The Shoes Totally Ruin It. Absent that, I am lost.
I just read that her dress was made of wet suit material…….that explains the bulk, but doesn’t explain anything else. Ha ha.
I seriously wore this dress to my prom in the late 80s…the white tuxedo tailed black velvet dress – I think 5 other girls wore it too…
And you were complaining of Anne’s ruffles… I still think she has the worst singing qualities of the entire bunch, but I can’t believe in a world without her presence.
*Russel Crowe= happy baby Buddha face. I am surprised at his vocal pitch, rough and strong.
** Eddie Redmayne= I’m sold. Plus, he can actually sing. Delightfully.
Is this in any way related to the ruffle-tastic dress Zooey Deschanel and Cheryl Cole wore last year? Either way Amanda looks a million times better in this than either did in that, I’m not sold on the dress itself, but she’s somehow making it really work on her.
Russell for me has lost his Gladiator hotness but it was 12 years ago. Hate the side ruffle!
Oh, I’m sorry–was there someone in these photos besides Hugh Jackman?
I don’t like the dress and its heinous ruffles–if it’s not flattering on her, it’s not going to flatter anyone. The good news is that the shoes are so horrendous that the dress doesn’t look that bad in comparison. And loving all the Les Miserables references!
