Felicity Jones in a pink princess Dior gown at ‘TTOE’ premiere: Oscar-worthy?


Dear Felicity Jones: save something for the Oscars, gurl! These are some photos from the LA premiere of The Theory of Everything last night. We already know that Eddie Redmayne is aiming for an Oscar nomination for his role as Stephen Hawking. But it’s also pretty likely that Felicity Jones will get a nomination for playing his wife Jane Hawking, perhaps for Best Supporting. There’s some confusion as to which category she would be included in – some say the role of Hawking’s first wife is a lead-actress role, some say Felicity’s chances would be better in the supporting category. Even though the lead actress category looks sort of week right now, I still think her chances would be better in supporting.

As for these photos… an excellent showing by Felicity. A pale pink princess Dior gown in silk satin, with Van Cleef & Arpels jewels. Great makeup, great hair, great princess dress (if that’s your thing). This honestly would have been an amazing look at the Golden Globes or Oscars or BAFTAs, right? I always wonder what the rationale is when a celebrity woman finds this kind of perfect dress – does Felicity not want to jinx it by “saving” the dress for a bigger event, an event she might not get an invitation to? Oh well. This dress makes me happy though. I’m really hoping that this awards season has lots of interesting fashion p0rn. Felicity needs to bring it!

    She looks pretty but I don’t like the seam right down the middle of the dress.

  2. Kristen says:

    Never into a drop waist.

  3. Abbott says:

    That drop waist is terrible on her. And that second photo of Eddie is…. unnerving.

  4. OriginalTessa says:

    She can do better. This is not her Oscar dress. Pockets, a drop waist… and satin? Nah. There’s a better dress in her stack of cards.

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I almost love it, and it has lots of elements that I normally love, but there’s something off. Can’t quite put my finger on it.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      I keep looking at it, and I think for me it’s that it’s too much of a drop waist. It’s highlighting her pubic bone in a weird way and it looks like she almost has to slouch to reach the pockets. If the fullness started just a couple inches higher I think it would be much better.

    • Kiddo says:

      I’m getting terrible flashbacks from a bride’s maid dress I was forced to wear.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Be grateful you were not in my generation that made the butt bow mandatory for bridesmaids. “Oh, and you can wear it again to a party or something!” Yeah, maybe Halloween.

      • Kiddo says:

        Yeah, these days you need a dainty front bow, like the Cream Crusader.

    • LadySlippers says:


      Same. I think I’d like this better in a more saturated pink. The colour is not doing her any favours.

      However, I do like the other elements…

  6. InvaderTak says:

    Lacks the nipple darts to be an Oscar dress

  7. Adrien says:

    She can wear it now. I don’t like the stitching.It looks like she didn’t go to the fittings.

  8. sally says:

    its really not that great of a dress at all.

  9. Inky says:

    I am not a big fan of the dress, but I always love Felicity.

  10. Tig says:

    Does anyone besides me have a hard time keeping her and Emily Browning separate? They look so much alike. As far as dress goes, I like the fit of it, but looks too long for her. Can’t wait to see this movie!

  11. Celia says:

    I dislike the dress, but I’m happy she has already worn it so Dior can’t force JLaw to wear it for a Mockingjay Premier.

    I find it sad how even Marion Cotillard has been looking bad in Dior lately. Is Raf even trying?

  12. Hissyfit says:

    I think she has a chance in supporting actress and I hope she will win. She’s an underrated actress. And, I want her to make another movie with Anton Yelchin!

    • Sunny says:

      I hate the dress. I find it to young and prom princess. She is incredibly beautiful though. I remember seeing a spread she did for glamour when she was first breaking though and her face is ridiculous and chameleon- like.

      And yes on her with Anton making another film. Like Crazy is one of the most brutal, emotionally honest movies about long distance relationships. I also loved JLaw in her bit role in that film.

  13. RhymesWithSilver says:

    Is this a “princess dress”? If I were a princess, I’d go with something a bit less austere. I found it a little disappointing. The drop waist plus the hem makes it look too long in front, even though the back looks fine lengthwise. I mean, she looks as good in it as anyone could- the cut, color and fabric would seem *extremely* unforgiving, and she’s still pulling it off, but I find it sort of meh overall.

  14. jane16 says:

    Well, I think the dress is striking. Better than most of the dreck we see on red carpets these days. I should have said she looks striking in the dress.

  15. Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

    The line, the shine, and the excess length overwhelm her.

  16. Sister Carrie says:

    Love her hairstyle. Meh on the dress.

  17. Katenotkatie says:

    Felicity is such a beauty. I would love to see her get more love stateside!

  18. MinnFinn says:

    She has gorgeous skin! I’ve never looked closely at her and hers is quintessential English rose complexion. She should be the poster child for an anti-fake-tanning campaign.

    Aesthetically, the dress is OK. I agree with everyone else I don’t like the seam down the front. It’s very distracting. Blush pink satin does not work on most people but somehow that pale color and shine is OK with her alabaster skin tone. It is beautifully fitted to her body and there are no wrinkles. Satin wrinkles so quickly even with couture techniques for underlining the entire garment so I bet she got dressed at the venue. I doubt she sat down in the gown before photos were taken.

    • LadySlippers says:


      Lol. I am not a fan of this colour on her. If it were even a tad more saturated I think it would take this dress from an okay to possibly a wow.

  19. LAK says:

    It’s the same DIOR dress JLaw has worn repeatedly at several award shows.

  20. tarheel says:

    I adore her, and think she is terribly underated and under appreciated, much like Sally Hawkins is, Academy Awards nomination or not (for Hawkins).

    The ONLY reason I am seeing this is because of Jones.

  21. Bridget says:

    For the higher profile categories, those dresses haven’t come down the runway yet. There’s no way they’d put a young, photogenic acting nominee in something from October, plus there’s the fact that with all the major award shows stylists must go through an army of dresses, so everything decent that’s already out will be worn at some point in the next few months. And does Dior dress anyone aside from the I spokespeople for the Oscars? The most high profile (Chanel, Dior, and I’ll add Tom Ford) of the fashion houses tend to be very picky about who gets to wear their designs.
