Rachel Weisz’s red cocktail dress in NYC: ravishing or blah?


I cannot for the life of me find who designed Rachel Weisz’s spectacular red dress. Okay, the dress is cute, but the “spectacular” part is how it looks on Rachel, and how great she looks in total. God, she’s so beautiful. She’s one of my top girls, you know. And if anything, she looks even better now that she’s married to Daniel Craig. Craig-dong will put a smile on a girl’s face, I think. Especially when you marry Craig-dong and start getting it on the regular. Sigh.

Anyway, Rachel was out and about last night promoting her new film, The Whistleblower, which I have never even heard of. She did a screening of the film in the red dress, plus some interviews and appearances, although she did change when she went on The Daily Show last night. The film is apparently about post-war Bosnia’s human trafficking problems, and Rachel plays a policewoman “blowing the whistle” on America’s culpability in human trafficking. Rachel said: “It’s a thriller. It’s one of my favorite kinds of genres, much in the vein of Erin Brockovich, because it’s based on a true story about a woman, an ordinary woman, who did an extraordinary thing and I love stories like that.” Vanessa Redgrave and Monica Bellucci are also in it!!! Rachel and Monica, in the same film? I’m dying. Here’s the trailer (ZOMG!! Benedict Cumberbatch! David Strathairn!)

Also: So much for the pregnancy rumors, eh? That’s a flat stomach.

    I think the colour is fabulous on her, but the bows give her linebacker shoulders. Not flattering.

  2. mln76 says:

    Rachel looks stunning. I don’t give the dress should get much credit it’s pretty much your average cocktail dress in red. What she’s got is a great body, and a glow from hot sex with her new hubby ;) Oh and looking at her flat tummy we can shelve the pregnancy rumors for now.

  3. brin says:

    She looks great….love the dress & her hair.

  4. cz says:

    Where did those legs come from? She looks gorgeous.

  5. Kaiser says:

    cz – I think the legs come from throwing them in the air every time she sees Daniel Craig.

  6. elizabeth says:

    Omg I love the dress and I love Rachel! She can do no wrong.

  7. Jane says:

    Why do celebrities wear shoes that are way too big? I know they’re loaners but can’t the designer call over first to see what size to send out?

  8. K-MAC says:

    she looks stunning! Damn great gams!

  9. Quest says:

    Rachel looks fab. Daniel is doing well for her

  10. Lena says:

    So where in the world is Daniel Craig?

  11. the original bellaluna says:

    Looks like a good movie, along the lines of The Constant Gardener. LOVE. HER.

  12. twokids says:

    She is beautiful but the dress is BLAH and doesn’t do justice on her.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Not loving the bows, but otherwise it’s a great look – simple enough to make you focus on her, not the dress.

  14. John Wayne Lives says:

    Wow, this looks good! Can’t wait to see it. She looks wow herself in that Little Red Dress.

    @Kaiser..”cz – I think the legs come from throwing them in the air every time she sees Daniel Craig” LOL well who wouldn’t :)

  15. zephyr says:

    Love the colour, hate the dress. (No one over the age of 8 should wear bows.)
    Next time, lovely Rachel, refuse to accept shoes that are Far Too Big.

  16. ladybert62 says:

    (1) Dont like red
    (2) Dont like that red dress
    (3) Those nude shoes (after looking at that red dress) make it look like she doesnt have any feet .

  17. Danziger says:

    It looks like a box and on the first photo her face looks like a female Craig.

    And I like her, so go figure.

  18. Boo says:

    Just say no to the bow.

    Heh…throwing her legs into the air when she sees DC: hilarious, Kaiser. :D

  19. REALIST says:

    It’s gorgeous-but too short. I know the trend is above the knees, but I just don’t like that for for evening attire (unless you’re in your 20′s and going out with your posse to meet guys). Just below the knee would look much nicer, especially since her upper legs are oddly skinny.
    Agreed-the shoes don’t help. Never wear a red dress without red shoes-even black shoes would be pushing it; black boots, on the other hand, go with everything!

  20. e says:

    Her posture is weird but she is very pretty and has a great body. I don’t hate the dress but I am also not wowed by it.

  21. Leigh says:

    @ Jane… right?!?! It drives me nuts when I see photos of celebs (or anyone really) with shoes that are way too big!!

  22. spinner says:

    She looks beautiful. I notice Rachel…not the dress.

    Rachel + Daniel = hottest couple around.

  23. Ana says:

    Rachel is my forever snow-white. :) Everytime I look at her, it remindes me this tale. So beautiful and talented!

    I was thinking about the shoes… They´re mostly “platform hidden” now, whatever style, have you guys noticed?

    Don´t hate me, but I like “more meat” on her. But beautiful anyway.

  24. original kate says:

    not liking the dress – very 80s. rachel looks beautiful in anything, though.

  25. Nanea says:

    I like the color of the dress and would have liked the shoes in another color.

    Oh well…

    Rachel looks happy!

  26. Rita says:

    She does look nice but the dress is very ordinary, that’s a good thing for a celebrity now and then.

  27. Heavenbound says:

    She looks stunning! I need to invest in a pair of nude shoes, they make your legs look longer.

  28. 4Real says:

    Yeah I don’t do bows but other than that she looks good.

  29. Embee says:

    I know it fits (technically) but something about the way it fits has me wanting her to go up a size. That said, she’s ravishing. And her husband is yummy.

  30. Maritza says:

    The marriage has done her well, she looks gorgeous!

  31. vmc says:

    She looks great in these photos.

  32. Boromir's bytch says:

    Don’t like the fit of the dress. Agree with Embee, a size up and it would drape better. Love the jewelry, though. Her fan-shaped earrings are perfect.

  33. Denise says:

    Rachel, yeah!
    Dress, yeah!
    Shoes, meh! Needs some black shoes………

  34. Germangirl says:

    Kaiser, the dress is by Valentino.

    As everyone is saying, the dress is ok, but the woman wearing it is spectacular!

  35. crtb says:

    She looks lovely! Her legs look skinny. I like the dress bows and all.

  36. Mae East says:

    Huh. Yeah, doesn’t look pregnant. I was so sure that Dlisted’s first original blind item was them–which, I think, would have been hot. Just thinking about her naked and pregnant in The Constant Gardener!

  37. Mae East says:

    Huh. Yeah, doesn’t look pregnant. I was so sure that Dlisted’s first original blind item was them–which, I think, would have been hot. Just thinking about her naked and pregnant in The Constant Gardener!

  38. Meg says:

    she played a strong woman in the constatnt gardner as well, another ordinary woman who did extraordinary things and made a difference. love her choices in films because we need these images of women in the media

  39. Firecracker says:

    I know, about the shoes! I don’t get why there’s that little gap, sometimes it looks like the shoes are 2 sizes too big.

    Also, I hate bows. Any and all bows.

  40. mary simon says:

    love her, love daniel and love them together. she looks great – I don’t mind the bows – not a big fan of that color, but she is so gorgeous that she is rocking that dress, anyway. not feeling the flesh colored shoes, though.

  41. You don't say says:

    Pretty color, I love red, but something about the fit is way off. Shoes, also, bad fit.

  42. kb says:

    Danziger, I find her masculine looking as well. I know people will think I am crazy. It’s her jaw and nose. I really noticed it in a recent advertising campaign she did for some perfume.

  43. buckley says:

    Sigh…this woman has got it ALL.
    looks, talent, money and the craig-dong

  44. Anita says:

    God she is gorgeous, I don’t know why people fuss over Megan Fox or Angelina Jolie, not this is what I call beautiful. WOW just wow

  45. Carolyn says:

    Gorgeous. And she seems a nice person too.

  46. Eve says:

    She’s gorgeous. I don’t like the dress though.

  47. Amy says:

    Absolutely, devastatingly beautiful — particularly in wenn5696316.jpg, the third photo down.
