Rebecca Hall’s bad fashion nearly eclipses her hottie costars


When I first caught sight of Rebecca Hall’s outfit at the premiere of The Town last night in Venice, I didn’t think it was that bad. I was wrong. Her hottie costars were just blocking the sleeves, and when you see it like that, from the waist up, it truly doesn’t look that bad. And then you see the whole thing – is it a dress or a jumpsuit? Is it a dress with the soul of a jumpsuit? A jumpsuit with palazzo pants… and slits? The cut is very strange, right? And the sleeves… oh GOD. Let me be nice for a moment: the color is nice. She had a good instinct with the color. Let me also say, I think she’s a very talented actress, and she is British. I’m not saying British = bad fashion, I’m saying British actresses with actual talent will sometimes equal quirky/bad fashion. See also: Helena Bonham-Carter, Emma Thompson, etc. Also: this was the second bad outfit she wore within one day – she should just hire a good stylist.

As for the men of The Town, they all donned their tuxedos and rocked the red carpet. Personally, my new-found reemerging crush on Ben Affleck wants him in more casual clothes, because I tend to think he looks slightly goofy in his tux. Plus, the fake tan is a very “Bennifer 1.0 circa 2003” look. He doesn’t need orange skin – he’s the director and star. But he still looks very nice.


The Hamm looks lovely too – I know he wants to separate “The Hamm” from “The Draper” but I would like to see The Hamm walk a red carpet with some Draper styling – a better-fitting jacket, and slicked-back hair. But still, lovely:


And Jeremy Renner… ugh… the dirt-lip/dirt-chin is just killing me. Yes, I know he’s crazy talented and he’s probably so proud that he’s HERE, walking a red carpet for a big movie, in Venice. But I just want to clean him up.

    It’s a messy out fit!!!! She is tall!!!

  2. Kaye says:

    I, for one, am looking forward to the day when men start shaving again. A beautiful tux doesn’t go with 5:00 shadow. Death to the scruffle!!

  3. scotchy says:

    is Renner going to be starring in a remake of the Three Musketeers??
    I really don’t understand that facial action.

  4. Siren6 says:

    That outfit is sadly less tragic than some of the other things she’d been shot in this week.

  5. mila says:

    The dress is Vionnet Resort 2010. I think she looks fabulous and dramatic, a bit like Liv Tyler (but not so pretty)

  6. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Its not as bad as her other fashion choices but its not fabulous. I do love love love the shoes she has on. I want them.

  7. Maritza says:

    I like her outfit, she looks elegant and beautiful. In that first photo,doesn’t she look like a young Vivienne Marchand (Angelina’s mom)?Jeremy’s goatee looks good too.I had no idea he was that short though.

  8. Hautie says:

    I love Affleck all cleaned up wearing a great tux.

    I also loved him during the days of dating Lopez. She forced him to clean up and wear great clothes. And there is nothing wrong with that.

    Now nothing is as great as The Hamm in a tux. And I like that his humor is showing up on the red carpet with the photo op’s.

  9. annaloo says:

    That is not the look.

  10. Kristin says:

    It a nice dress, hater.

  11. Jean says:

    Rebecca Hall should be glad that Blake Lively didn’t attend, say whatever you want about the girl, but at least she dresses nicely.

  12. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I hate the color of the dress, but I actually like the dress.

  13. LeManda says:

    Oh Ya Jean. Where the hell is Blake? I was looking forward to seeing her ‘pantless’ at these premieres. They probably didn’t want her getting all the attention.

    Ya this dress is nice, considering the epic fails of earlier this week.

  14. aenflex says:

    I love everything about that dress but the sleeves. The color is excellent for her and the fabric looks devine. But the sleeves gots ta go!

  15. mslewis says:

    Blake can’t miss Fashion Week with Anna to go to some silly premiere!! Come one people. The girl has her priorities!

  16. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Blake is filming Gossip Girl in New York.

  17. Bee says:

    As I mentioned in another thread this woman must locate a stylist ASAP. Rachel Zoe is surviving on diet soda, and locking her womb up tighter than Fort Knox just so she can dress you Rebecca Hall. You better recognize.

  18. Feebee says:

    Lighten up, we’ve all seen worse… much worse.

  19. Stronzilla says:

    Take more than a pair of drapes to eclipse 3 men that good looking. Besides, in that group who’s looking at her anyway. That’s probably why she dressed that way.

  20. coucou says:

    Just because she’s beautiful doesn’t make the dress beautiful.

    It is not particularly ugly, but it is definitely not a pretty or flattering dress. It just doesn’t do her justice is all. It’s like the damn thing is wearing her.

  21. Maravilha says:


    I think Angelina’s mother was called “Marcheline Bertrand”.

  22. Tiffany says:

    I am trying my best not to sound catty, but with the outfit yesterday and what she wore to here, this is the woman who’s name was dropped in the Sam Mendes/Kate Winslet divorce.

  23. lukie says:

    The problem isn’t the dress, it’s the styling. That is not the type of shoe you wear w/a dress like that at all. The dress is light and airy, the hair is messy and the shoes looking clunky.

    A jeweled, silver or gold strappy heel would have been much better. Maybe some gold jeweled cuffs or bangles, though the ones she has on are fine if she were wearing a different shoe. The hair is eh, but something sleeker would have been nicer.

    Ooh! I think I just channeled Rachel Zoe!

  24. Kelly says:

    Just because her name was “dropped” in connection with the Mendes Winslett divorce don’t make it true.

    I still give her a pass because we’ve all seen much, much worse outfits on stars/starlets. The cut is a bit “flowy,” shall we say, but it’s a beautiful color and her face/hair are gorgeous. Judging from this picture and the last, my guess is that she prefers loose clothing. I’d take this over, say, Lindsay’s coke-whore legging/schmatta combinations or Paris’ Little-Bo-Peep-in-a-bordello outfits any day.

  25. The Hamm is My Dream Man says:

    Ben Affleck looks like he’s wearing make-up and lots of it.

    My Hamm is adorable and sexy-looking as usual.

    Never seen or heard of this Rebecca Hall but I agree with you that Brits tend to be a little odd in their fashion choices.

  26. dj says:

    Is it me or does she look really uncomfortable with Ben’s arm around her in the last 2 pics? It makes me think of “that guy” (we all know at least one) who will use any excuse to hug, kiss or touch you. I’m just saying.

  27. lucy2 says:

    She sort of looks like a cross between Liv Tyler and Anne Hathaway. I kind of wish she’d do something different with her hair.

    The dress isn’t horrible, but the sleeves are. Like the color though.

  28. jemshoes says:

    LOL @ Bee

    @ lucy2 – I agree, RH bears a striking resemblance to Liv Tyler

    Love the colour of the dress! It would have been better as a strapless a-line.

  29. Mrs. Harrison Ford says:

    She should’ve worn the dress the woman behind her in the first picture is wearing. It would go better with the shoes.
