Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer at the HBO after Emmy party: cute couple?

These are just some photos from the HBO after-Emmys party that we didn’t get to in our fashion coverage yesterday. Most notably we have married couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. I have a hard time separating these two from their True Blood characters. Logically, I can. I mean I know that they’re actors and they have two kids, but they keep their private life on lock down. I know so little about them that I tend to think of them as Sookie and Bill. When I see them together I think “Oh no, this isn’t going to work out. He’s just using her.” Of course I know it’s not true, it’s just a gut reaction I have to these two.

Anyway Anna was wearing Alexander McQueen, one of her go-to designers. She loves severe looks, maybe to keep dimwits like me from associating her with Sookie. I wish she would lighten up a little with her fashion, but that’s her style and she’s sticking to it. She would make a great vampire.

Also there last night were Aaron Paul and his new bride, Lauren Parsekian. I’m kind of bummed that Aaron shaved off his mountain man beard for the occasion. He was kind of badass with it. If you’re like me and can’t get enough of the guy, Buzzfeed has a ton of photos of Aaron being awesome with his Breaking Bad costars at the Emmys.

Here’s Jane Fonda, whom I love. She’s wearing David Meister, a designer who is getting a lot of play on the red carpet lately. Jane looks great. Why is she wearing one glove, though? Did she get that laser hand treatment that’s all the rage?

Patricia Arquette, in a strange two-tone shiny black top and skirt with a giant gold belt. Her styling more than makes up for it. This makes me want to chop off my hair.

Oh and Michelle Dockery switched dresses to this cute retro-looking LBD with a sequin skirt. She looks more relaxed here than she did at the Emmys.

    Patricia Arquette’s top is one or two sizes too small, but her face is beautiful. I also think she is an under-rated actress.

  2. Liv says:

    If someone’s used it’s Aaron Paul.

    • Diane says:

      AGREE! Just check out their photos. She is always facing the camera, he is usually staring at her. Body language gives her away.

    • mia girl says:

      It makes me sad that I have that impression too! Based on nothing really, except him seeming over-the-top into her and a general vibe I get from them.

      She sure is pretty though.

    • Easi says:

      Yes! Maybe I can’t separate him from Jessie, but he seems so awesome and she just looks bad news.

    • lucy2 says:

      I don’t know – apparently they’ve been together a long time, and she’s got her own things going on. They seem happy and cute together, good for them.

    • Mia 4S says:

      I’d give her the benefit of the doubt (for now at least). She’s not an “aspiring” model/actress or whatever so I am not sure she’s entirely comfortable at these things. I just always think she looks nervous posing more than anything else. It’s so funny; I know Aaron is basically my age (full grown adult!) but he’s got such a baby face and sweet nature it’s easy to see why people feel protective of him.

    • ThatGirl says:

      I sat behind him and his wife on a flight to Mexico a few months back (I think they were going on their honeymoon?). She looks a lot different when she’s not totally done up for the red carpet – still pretty, but just seemed like a regular, approachable person as opposed to some unattainable hot chick. I SO wanted to fangirl all over the place but managed to restrain myself – seemed like they wanted privacy (though I did tell him as we were getting off the plane how much I enjoyed his work and I got a hug…eeeeek!!!!).

      Anyways, back to the moral of the story – I wanted to think that she’s using him for his celebrity (you know, so that I can marry him down the road 🙂 ), but after that flight, I don’t think so. They looked like any other recently married couple. She stared at him just as adoringly as he stared at her, they cuddled the whole time, etc. It was actually really sweet. You could see how crazy they both are about each other.

    Anna looks a bit pissed in the first 2 photos. I think they’re a cute couple and love the fact that they’re so private.

    everyone else looks good

  4. Lflips says:

    I think Anna needs a brighter hair color; her current color is really washing her out and making her look prematurely old. Also, has she always looked so frail?

    • M.A.F. says:

      In some photos, it looks like her hair is grey; like she dyed it grey as some people are doing (which I don’t understand why). I do like her dress though.

  5. Jen says:

    Anna got REALLY skinny, she is so harsh looking now. I know having twins and working probably wears a person down, but she looks sickly.

  6. Prim says:

    The first year of twins is so hard on the body. Nothing can prepare you for feeding two babies every night, all night. She’ll probably look a little softer as they get older.

  7. Erinn says:

    I’m so stressed out with Breaking Bad. I’m not even someone who religiously watches it – just follow it and watch here and there because I get way too emotionally attached to characters on shows like that. Been watching the last few with Der, and he is a religious watcher. I was so disappointed with Dexter, that I’m worried for Jesse lol.

  8. bammer says:

    Anna always looks pissed. I wonder what will happen to their marriage once TB ends.

    • Maria_Spain says:


    • Ashling says:

      I wonder how their career prospects will affect their marriage. Stephen isn’t at the same level as her outside of TB.

      • pretty kitty says:

        both of their careers outside of true blood are failing,, aside of her avengers, but how many more can she do?? 1 every 5 years?? they look worried more than pissed.. prob looking to line up a new job.

  9. eliza says:

    There is something about both Anna and Stephen’s faces that irritate me. I am happy True Blood will be ending so I no longer have to sit through watching their terrible acting ever again.

    • Milo says:

      +1! They seem like decent solid people, but it is slightly painful to watch them. A big part of that is the writer’s fault, but Anna seems to have 2 expressions as Sookie: pissed and not pissed.


  10. mkyarwood says:

    The anklet is pretty hot. She has a case of ‘got pregnant before 30, slimmed down after 30’. She is likely down to the weight she was before, but we lose our face fat after baby after 30 for some reason. People told me I was too skinny once I reached my goal too, and I had to agree. Our body weight changes its distribution over the years, and the body vs. face thing is more of an issue for ladies with strong bone structure.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Anna has gotten thinner, I bet she’s stressed between the twins and working, and probably worked out hard to get back in shape for her show. Hopefully she takes a little time to relax now.
    I like them together in real life, they both seem nice and funny and private, but on the show I dislike Bill and Sookie together.

  12. coolio says:

    I think aarons wife looks like holly, hugh hefners ex. But I don’t think she’s using him? Why do people think so?

    • MollyB says:

      I think people get the vibe because he gushes and gushes over her in interviews and on the red carpet and she just seems more distant. But as others have said, she’s a lawyer who runs a non-profit, not an actress or model so she may not play up the red carpet as well.

  13. pretty says:

    stephen moyer is SO HOT.
    I prefered Bill over Eric when i was watching trueblood even though everyone was all over Eric.
    I think he is sooo good looking. Anna Paquin is so lucky ~!

    edit: this picture of him is just.. !!

  14. The Original Original says:

    Why does she look so startled here? In both the first two pictures it looks like something is shocking her

  15. Meggin says:

    She doesn’t look good in these pictures. Just… awkward. I think the Sookie clothes (lighter outfits, white dress, yellow) etc suit her better!

  16. Tig says:

    She’s gotten so thin! Hopefully once show is done and babies are a bit older, she’ll get a break.
