I used to say this all the time, but Sophie Hunter looks so much like Catherine Keener, right? It’s happening again in these photos from the London premiere/screening of Doctor Strange. After joining her Cumberhusband at the LA premiere late last week, Sophie and Benedict Cumberbatch are back in the UK. I’m guessing that Benedict will probably make it to a few more countries this week, then he’s off to New York next week to prepare for Saturday Night Live and his first time hosting that show. I don’t know what to expect there – he’s a proper theatre actor so he knows how to do live performances. But I suspect that some of the skits might be awful.
As for these photos photos… Sophie, I believe, was trying to stylistically channel Doctor Strange’s cape, maybe. Her dress is Valentino, one of her favorite labels – she wore a few Valentino gowns in 2014/15, and she had a custom-made Valentino wedding gown in 2015 too. I like the bold hot-pink and I don’t mind all of the fabric and the cape. If she wants to wear a sack dress, so be it, she’s pregnant and entitled. The one thing I would change would be the high neck – with that much fabric going on, the mock-turtle isn’t necessary. Her makeup is fine and the matchy heels are… inoffensive but not great. I think she spilled something on her dress too? That sucks. Benedict also wore Valentino!
What else? Benedict did a Q&A session with the Guardian where fans submitted questions or something. I skimmed this – go here to read. Bendy is so tame these days.
I do like that Sophie is looking especially loved-up in these photos. Non-alcoholic Comet Sophies for everyone!
