Evan Rachel Wood in D&G: too androgynous or is she a mini-Cate Blanchett?


I know, I just did a George Clooney-related post a little bit ago, but now we have even more photos! And not just of Clooney – these are photos from the Venice Film Festival photo call for The Ides of March. Unfortunately, there’s no Gosdong (boo!). But there is some fashion porn happening with Evan Rachel Wood. All of a sudden, she’s giving me Cate Blanchett vibes. I know, I know, that comparison isn’t fair to either of them. But you can see a resemblance, right? And this Dolce & Gabbana suit looks like something Blanchett would wear (and work the hell out of). Does ERW pull it off? I think she does. I think Clooney thinks she does too:


Am I going to have to worry about Clooney and ERW? Er… I think I might. Evan once said in an interview that Clooney had come up to her and told her, “You’re really good at going from innocent to sexy in the drop of a hat.” And then he hired her for his movie. And then he invited her to Lake Como. And then… God knows.

More photos… I love Marisa Tomei, and I think she’s beautiful and she’s aging naturally. But she looks like hell here. Part of it is the fug dress, but part of it is just bad lighting and bad makeup.




Philip Seymour Hoffman!!!! I keep forgetting he’s in The Ides of March. He looks so hot. I would jump on him before Clooney. I’d jump on PSH before Ryan Gosling too, by the way.

    I’m usually not into a bunch of ruffles up around the throat but I loooooooove this!

  2. spinner says:

    ERW looks wonderful. This style totally suits her.

  3. Heatheradair says:

    gotta say, ERW has REALLY been impressing me lately with successfully pulling of INTERESTING fashion choices. Love her fair skin, love the houndstooth pumps, love the sort of interesting way it’s both victorian-prim and david bowie-edgy. Love it. Even the hair and makeup are just right. Hmmmm – I think I have ERW envy.

  4. Kaye says:

    I’m sorry, Kaiser, but PSH gives off a perv vibe to me.

  5. Liz says:

    I have a lot of irrational distaste for come of the starlets out there. But I love ERW! Maybe because she’s actually really talented and her personality carries depth.

  6. marge says:

    OMG THE SHOES!!!!!!!!! I LOVE HER PIED DE POULE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Thea says:

    I think George has met his new beard. And it is not PSH.

  8. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Where is Ryan Gosling??? He should have been there. ERW is killing it. Girlfriend looks amazing. Poor Marisa Tomei. OMG.

  9. Anguishedcorn says:

    I think she looks amazing. I love the whole outfit.

  10. kieslwoski says:

    I love Evan’s look so much!! Thank you for posting pics of her none of the other sites [ay much attention to her, ans I really like her!

    I would so jump PSH before Clooney as well, but Gosling is still tops, such a shame he is missing out on Venice.

  11. Micah says:

    Love her.

    She looks Fantastic.

  12. lucy2 says:

    ERW looks good! I like the clothes, and she has a really pretty face.
    Marisa normally looks great, but I agree this was not her best.
    Great cast, I want to see this.

  13. Cherry Rose says:

    I won’t deny that Evan Rachel Wood is a pretty girl. However, I’m still iffy on exactly how talented she is.

    In some stuff, she nails the role. But in other stuff, like True Blood, she is absolutely horrible.

    Plus, she’s a homewrecker. Yes, she was just 19 and yes Marilyn Manson was equally as guilty in the whole matter as she was. But the way they handled the entire matter was no better than how Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott or Leann and Eddie handled theirs.

  14. annaloo says:

    The outfit is fabulous. ERW had a good day. Tomorrow she might f up and we all hate her again.

  15. marie says:

    I think ERW looks super chic and yes shades of Cate B.! Typical of U.S. tabloids to make a headline insuating that maybe she looks ‘too androgynous’ because…she’s not showing T&A with long ‘sexy’ hair and pouty lips? Please. Always love Marisa Tomei…even more that she has some lines. And the men…two of my faves for different reasons.

  16. Turtle Dove says:

    ERW dazzles me. I’m with Liz (5) with the distaste for some of the starlets in Hollywood, but ERW has a cool personality and is stylish. I like her sort of aloof demeanor. Clooney isn’t good enough for her and she’s too classy and luminous for him.

    PSH is a favorite of mine too. I always seem to crush on the non-apple pie good looks men – PSH, Malcovich, etc. These men are far more interesting than the Clooneys of the world.

    I would still be all over the Gos though. *sigh* His tight britches and dog love won my heart.

  17. Miss says:

    Wow! That last photo is awesome overload! PG, PSH, MT…..

  18. geekychic says:

    how can you even write Cate B. in the same sentence as ERW?
    i may be one of the few, but no-i don’t like her, i don’t find her super-beautiful and her sense of style..i don’t get it.
    even if i did, Cate B. is so high above most actors in HW, i don’t even think about her in those terms. she’s a category all by herself.

  19. Tuppiv says:

    I love ERW, I think she looks fabulous here.
    All I can see in the Marisa Tomei pics, however, are swastikas.

  20. gab says:

    I agree with most here, ERW looks quite lovely. Marissa looks really good in the picture of her laughing, but the outfit is a no.

  21. MJ says:

    ERW looks amazing. Marisa Tomei has been one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood for the past 20+ years, but her outfit, hair and makeup are doing her no favours.

  22. Robin says:

    I’m not a fan of Evan’s but she does look really good here. Not feeling the shoes, though.

  23. Ron says:

    Evan looks great. Marisa looks odd. What the hell is that?

  24. corey says:

    She looks androgenously beautiful. I wouldn’t be mad at her and and Clooney together. Do it! Good call on Marisa, she looks terrible in these pics. The one with ERW is painful to look at.

  25. corey says:

    Oh and that suit fits like a dream on her.

  26. HeiN says:

    Chic. I like her.

  27. Daisy Kenyon says:

    What a knock out cast. PSH and Giamatti~

    Tomei looks just fine! sheeeeesh! She is a survivor, love her.

    Respect the Wood girl for chopping her hair. All the young actresses who are serious about their craft chop their hair at least one time in their early 20s.

  28. RocketMerry says:

    I dislike Evan with an intense and mostly unjustified sentiment, but Good Lord of the MenShirts, she can dress good.
    She really has great style.

  29. Ell says:

    I really can’t see any similarities between Cate and Rachel, apart from them being completely unique and wonderful actresses. Thank goodness for the occasional individual who breaks away from the sheep with their image and attitude.

  30. bitchbelying says:

    ERW shits on all of them. She’s making them all look GOd Awful. Even Marissa Tomei.

  31. hatsumomo says:

    Evan looks super great here, my only teeny tiniest suggestion would be to tuck in the shirt. The jacket and pants are cut very well to leave the shirttail hanging out.

  32. Ally says:

    What about George’s look. He’s looking crispy and tired.

    Though I like that he’s starting to look like Marcello Mastroianni as he gets older.

  33. Az says:

    I am dying for Evan Rachel Wood’s blouse. DYING. Total fashion porn… so chic!

  34. Audrey says:

    I really like ERW, but those shoes are right out of the eighties. I love Marissa’s outfit.

  35. Grace says:

    I think Evan looks great, and it’s always good to see photos of PSH.

  36. rrrooow says:

    I think she looks BEAUTIFUL and sophisticated!

  37. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I loved her in True Blood and I think she’s gorgeous. I always think she makes some interesting fashion choices and the one interview I read from her she sounded smart.

  38. Andie B says:

    It’s a little too mannish..Cate could pull it off..white blouse is not floating my boat. Like her hair and makeup though.

  39. Bec says:

    She looks more like a mini-Julia Andrews than anything else! I think in general she’s gross. She stole someone’s husband for christ sake. And she has a smug look about her ALL the time. That combined with a little bat shit crazy vibe thrown in there. She’s overrated as an actor – I have no idea why she gets cast in anything. She sucks.

  40. Mila says:

    She looks good,polished but not even close to Cate Blanchett.
