Megan Fox in Roland Mouret for the ‘This is 40′ premiere: lovely or overdone?

Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s latest offering, and some kind of sequel to knocked up, I guess, only the story is just about Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s characters. Megan Fox is in it, I guess because she’s trying to salvage her Hollywood career by becoming a supporting actress in decent films, as opposed to a lead actress in terrible films. Of all of her potential career moves, this is probably the wisest choice, quite honestly. Megan is wearing Roland Mouret. Thoughts? I don’t hate it. I usually like burgundy and wine colors, but this feels too muted to be interesting. The design is cute, and once again, I want to encourage Megan to stay at this weight. Her body looks great. I want to wipe off some of her makeup though. Too drag-queeny.

More photos from the premiere… Paul Rudd looking ageless. Who’s the lady? Is that HIS lady?

Lena Dunham in a too-cute-by-half little red dress. Ugh. I can’t with the bows.

Chris O’Dowd and his new wife. These two are adorable. I need to find a giant, goofy Irishman of my own.

And here’s Leslie Mann, star of the film and wife of the director. Does this dress work for who Leslie is? Eh. It’s an okay dress, but it’s very… vanilla. It’s very “don’t look at me, I’m just the director’s wife.” Like, this is how Kate Capshaw dresses.

    Megan looks like she lost that 10 lbs already! The dress suits her a lot better than the white one. The make up is a little too dark but she still looks really good. I do wish she would leave the “blowing a kiss” pose to the VS models.
    I love Leslie Mann!

  2. lori says:

    I think Meagan looks good. The dress is really nice and tasteful. And yeh she is a little too made up but I find that woman who’ve had so much face fillers etc really seem to need a lot of make up

  3. Buckwild says:

    Megan’s dress looks like the ones worn by the Middleton women.

    I think the lips would have been fine if she didn’t pair it with what look like blue/grey eyeshadow. That just takes it from autumn look to drag.

  4. Gine says:

    I like the style of the dress a lot. The color is a little…muddy, though? I also usually like burgundy, but something seems slightly off about that shade. Still one of her better looks, though.

  5. just me says:

    Megan Fox is gorgeous. Leslie Mann is not interesting at all.

  6. goodquestion says:

    I cringe for Lena Dunham’s poor feet.

  7. Summer says:

    Megan looks pretty and healthy. period.

  8. Apples says:

    LOVE Leslie mann’s dress- not a 100% that it’s right for December and a black belt, but, the structure is amazing on her body.

    I agree re: Megan might look better with a different makeup artist- she needs less product in less muddy colors. Dress looks lovely on her and strikes right note of “just” supporting actor at event. :)

  9. lem says:

    That dress looks AWFUL on Lena Dunham. Seriously the girl needs to learn how to dress her body.

  10. only1shmoo says:

    Megan’s dress is nice, but I swear, every time I see someone make that God-awful duck lip expression I just want to throw a loaf of bread in their face!

  11. Trillian says:

    That red dress is just horrible. And I really hate it when there’s toe cleavage.

  12. Eleonor says:

    I think she looks great. I like the dress, I even like the makeup, because it’s an evening event, so even if it’s too much can be appropriate.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I love Megan’s dress. It’s a nice color on her, and she looks great. The makeup is a bit much though.
    Lena’s dress would be cute without the bows, but they really ruin it for me. Leslie’s is OK, yeah a little boring.

  14. berry says:

    Paul Rudd’s wife looks like that annoying journalist Samantha Brick.

  15. jules says:

    I actually really, really love Leslie’s dress (and not _just_ because I really really love everything about Leslie).

    I think Megan’s makeup doesn’t look so bad in the first and third pictures, but there’s something weird (and really, really unflattering) going on with the lighting in the second picture. Like, her hair looks sort of… green.

  16. Miss Kiki says:

    Megan looks great here. Her new attitude is very refreshing. I love Chris O’Dowd and Paul Rudd. As for Leslie Mann she is one of those stars that I think would be a lot fun to hang out with.

  17. NerdMomma says:

    I am a Megan Fox fangirl, what can I say? I just think she’s gorgeous and I want to look at her all day. I LOVE the dark makeup, I think this is the best she’s ever looked. She usually stays away from dark lips and it looks amazing on her. I wonder why she doesn’t just model?

  18. bns says:

    Rouland Mouret is amazing. I always love his stuff.

  19. shewolf says:

    Her eyebrows are too dark and her foundation needs more of a glow to it… her only problems! As if they were problems at all! She’s just absolutely gorgeous.

  20. thinkaboutit says:

    Megan needs to remove about a pound of makeup and three pounds of those hair extensions. Then she’ll be a perfect 10+. Less is always more.

    • Debbie says:

      The dress is beautiful, possibly a little old for her but beautiful and from far away she looks great but whoever did her make up should be banned from the industry! I mean honest to God she looks like a drag queen and an extremely old one at that. Megan needs to remember all that plastic work she has had aged her significantly so the heavy makeup only makes it worse.

      Also the sexy duck face pose just stop you killed your career, it’s over you will now be lucky to have alba’s and be a professional mom with bit parts so stop trying so hard on the red carpet and except what you did to yourself, you only look foolish.

      The hair and dress is beautiful though and I like Leslie mann’s look although cant handle her an actress so will probably have to skip this one.

    • emmie_a says:

      Yes Yes Yes about the hair. Why do so many celebrities wear insane hair extensions (and/or weaves)??? It just looks so incredibly fake, although most of Megan’s face is fake so I guess it works for her — but it’s not a good look.

  21. Amanda says:

    I do not believe that Megan is only 26. If that’s true, she has really over-done the plastic curgery and the heavy make-up doesn’t help. Paul Rudd, on the other hand, looks fabulous. He went to my high school (5 years ahead of me) and from what I have heard he has not changed one bit – still the nicest guy. I am so glad to hear that. I’m not crazy about Leslie’s look either. I think she would look better with a little extra weight. I can’t wait to see the movie though.

  22. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Megan’s beautiful but she just doesn’t need this much makeup.

  23. Mew says:

    She’s always overdone. Pretty and overdone.

  24. Sweet Dee says:

    I think Megan is beautiful and looks great here, with the exception of her makeup. She could have toned down either the lips or the eye and it would have looked great. No more kissy faces please.

    Love Paul Rudd and especially Chris O’Dowd! His wife is adorable, too. If anyone wants to see some great vintage Chris O, check out the IT Crowd from British tele (don’t know the channel, sorry), it’s streaming on Netflix!

    Lena Dunham thinks she’s much cuter than I think she is.

    Leslie Mann looks great in my opinion. I have to disagree on the dress, I really love it. The panel could be a different pattern, but I like it a lot.

  25. Mara says:

    Wow she looks stunning ,motherhood agrees with her cuz she is one hot mama!

  26. Gia says:

    Lena needs to seriously get some exercise. And i don’t mean that she needs to be super skinny and “comform to Hollywood” but just look at the state of her legs!? No muscle tone. It’s gross. It’s lazy and she should take better care of herself. I mean look at that!! Her legs look like she’s friggin’ paralized and has been in a wheelchair for 20 years…

  27. HotPockets says:

    I was watching tv the other night and Leslie Mann was on, giving an interview and my goodness, does she bug the crap out of me and say some stupid $hit! I swear, she wouldn’t have a career if it were not for her husband.

    I like Megan Fox’s makeup, but the lipstick is to matchy matchy with the dress, she should have done a nude lip.

  28. Mayday says:

    Said it already but I’m loving her with this extra weight on.

  29. Cali says:

    Megan looks fabulous. Leslie looks good, but not her best. I’ve met her in person and she positively sparkles from the inside out. She always looks gorgeous, but should’ve went for something sassier.

  30. Jackson says:

    Wow. I think Megan looks fab. Love the dress and the color of it as well. Love the shoes. Love her hair and lipstick. Only thing is the blue eye shadow – muted brown with some black liner would have been better. Overall though, pretty damn fabulous.

  31. Samihami says:

    I agree with PP’s; Fox would have done well to tone down they eye makeup. I’ve always been told-and believe to be true-that you either play up your eyes OR your lips, but not both. If you do, it’s too overpowering.

    I think her dress looks great, though. Much better than the white one she wore recently.

  32. Happy21 says:

    Megan, Leslie and the boys look great. However, Lena does not. She always seems to wear the wrong thing!

  33. Kaitlin says:

    Ok, totally off subject but seeing how many posts there are of celebrities at their premiers, I’ve always wondered; do they actually have to sit through their own movies over and over again or do they just walk the red carpet and then go get a drink? Just thought I would ask in case anybody knows.

    • pamspam says:

      That’s a really good question. I have a contact who would know, but won’t see them until next week. If I see you comment on another story after that, I’ll let you know! Maybe someone else will chime in before then…

    • LAK says:

      Answer: yes. walk the carpet, are introduced to the audience before or after the screening + Q&A session. they go to dinner/pub/whatever during the screening.

      Most watch the film at a private screening, if at all. Some don’t bother to watch the film at all. Rare is the celebrity who sits with the public to watch the film unless it’s a festival.

  34. Christina says:

    Nice to see Roland Mouret designing under his own name again, rather than just being Victoria Beckham’s ghost designer.

  35. katie says:

    paul rudd is so hot, he’s always been hot. love his eyes

  36. skuddles says:

    Damn Megan Fox is a good looking gal – even with all the tweaking, she is still one of the most beautiful women in HWood.

    Leslie Mann… most annoying voice. Ever. Just looking at her makes me want to plug my ears.

    • Minty says:

      It’s a shame because Megan was one of the lucky ones who didn’t need surgery. She looked great before and her freckles were cute. Plastic surgery has aged her.

      Yes, Leslie’s voice really is grating. Being married to a successful director sure helped her career.

  37. Kat says:

    Chris O’Dowd’s new wife?!? That’s Dawn Porter, thank you very much. She’s done a number of great docos for the BBC.

    I’m so glad to see that they’re still together and have gotten married – they make such a great couple.

  38. Faye says:

    Stunner. I never saw Megan Fox as more than pretty, but that color and her hair..she looks wonderful. (Except for the kiss blowing picture. Not cute.)

  39. Shy says:

    Well how much people will be surprised when they will come to theater and find out that Leslie Mann is Lead Actress and Megan plays some small supporting role? Theyway Megan promotes it – you would be 100% that she is leading actress there :)

  40. ZenBitch says:

    She looks like a prostitute. She always looks like a prostitute. She always looks like she is going to walk off and give some guy a BJ.

    Look at how pretty the make up is on Blake and Katie in the Sandy post. That is what a young woman should look like.

  41. Rachel says:

    I think Megan looks GREAT–her makeup is kind of 80s, in the way that normal adult women (as opposed to, say, teenagers or Cyndi Lauper) used to wear their makeup. It’s different from the modern look, though.

    Lena Dunham needs to STAND UP STRAIGHT and get some damn foundation garments. Seriously. She looks embarrassed to be alive, as if she were in jr. high. GET IT TOGETHER!

  42. Meece says:

    You know I’ll admit it, I like a Megan Fox, even with all the fillers I still think she’s gorgeous! And even though her makeup is a bit iffy here, she doesn’t really get enough credit (or her stylists and hair/make up people don’t) for looking as good as she does. Probs cos she’s so pretty it’s just assumed she’ll look good lol, but Her hair especially is ALWAYS glossy and shiny and well groomed and makes me so jealous!
    And aside from the occasional questionable choices she normally dresses pretty well. I hope she stays at this weight though, or at least doesn’t get thinner she looks so much better with the extra 10!

  43. Casey says:

    asdkljiranv ahh megan’s toe-thumbs!! put them away!
