Liv Tyler in Givenchy at the Venice ‘Ad Astra’ premiere: lovely or cheap?

76th Venice Film Festival, Italy - 'Ad Astra'  -Premiere

Here are some photos from last night’s Venice Film Festival premiere of Ad Astra, aka Brad Pitt’s Melancholic Masculinity In Space Movie. That’s too wordy, which is why they named it Ad Astra. This was really the first time I’ve seen Brad on a red carpet where I felt like… damn, Brangelina is no more. Back in the day, Angelina would have been there and they would have posed like crazy with his hand on her ass. As it was, he looked like he didn’t know what to do with his hands or how to pose solo.

So, basically, his female costars were much more interesting on this red carpet. Liv Tyler plays his wife in Ad Astra, and she wore this crinkly Givenchy gown which… this is taffeta, right? And it looks like cheap taffeta. I’m sure this dress costs thousands of dollars, but wow is this bad fabric. Ruth Negga wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown – I could have done without the quilted jacket/cape, honestly. The dress would have been lovely enough on its own.

Here are pics from the photocall in Venice. Liv wore Stella McCartney, and the shoulders, sleeves and neckline are all wrong here, but the fabric is sort of interesting. Ruth wore a Louis Vuitton Cruise jumpsuit, and she looked cute as hell.

    Liv and Ruth are lovely but I don’t care for any of these looks.

  2. Kiki says:

    What did Live Tyler don’t her face????

    • Millenial says:

      I don’t think anything too crazy, just some exceptionally bad eye make-up that makes it look like she did something. Her face is back to normal in the second set of photos.

      • Sarah says:

        Her lips look weird, right?

      • Algernon says:

        Liv Tyler has always done her lipstick weird. She has big Joliesque lips, but she always under paints them to make them look smaller. I remember her weird lips from the LOTR days.

      • Amanduh says:

        It looks like she has an overbite too which is probably from her dad who looks to have one too.

      • weezle says:

        I agree. Bad makeup. Bad hair. If she is using any filler in her lips, it’s likely to prevent butt-pucker lip (I need it myself, but I can’t afford the upkeep at the moment). She’s lovely, but she probably could use a new stylist.

      • Tigerlily says:

        Yes her eye makeup is horrendous, she’s gorgeous with less heavy makeup

    • Carey says:

      I watched her Vogue makeup tutorial and she’s definitely had her lips done and probably some other work done as well.

  3. Rapunzel says:

    The Fail had a piece about Brad flirting with Liv…..hahaha. Is she even single?

    • Lucy says:

      He wasn’t. They wrote that he couldn’t stop stAring at her and then published a bunch of photos of him not looking at her. Brad looks great here.

    • roseplot says:

      She’s married. This just shows you how desperate they are to link this guy to someone. Mess!

      • Starkiller says:

        She’s not married, but she has a long-term partner. Kelly Brook and Rita Ora’s shared ex, hilariously enough. And I’ll echo the “what has she done to her face?” sentiment.

  4. OriginalLala says:

    at first I thought Liv was Lauren Graham from Gilmore Girls! they’ve had the same procedures or fillers I guess?

  5. TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    Liz looks so uncomfortable, and that is surprising to me. I’ve always loved her since the Aerosmith video days.

  6. SIPNBUBBLY says:

    What has Liv Tyler done to her face?! She used to look so ethereal. Hopefully she’s not morphing into her father.

  7. Seraphina says:

    That black dress looks like it’s melting off of her. And yes her beautiful face, what is she doing to it???

  8. Esmom says:

    I like both of Ruth’s looks and Liv’s floral dress is okay. The black taffeta one does nothing for me and her hair and makeup are not great.

    Brad is starting to give me a Jeff Bridges vibe.

    • noway says:

      You are right, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with Jeff Bridges vibes!!!

      Also, just curious if you are an older man in Hollywood do you get out of these things? Where are Donald Sutherland and Tommy Lee Jones? Just a bit surprised, would have loved to seen them.

  9. boredblond says:

    Like the jumpsuit, but that Stella McCartney is one hot mess

  10. duchess of hazard says:

    Ad Astra sounds like the name of a car. A family sedan, to be precise. Ruth Negga is so cute, she reminds me of betty boop come to life.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Ad Astra means (as part of the phrase, per aspera ad astra) Through hardships to the stars….

  11. Suzanne says:

    I actually like the black taffeta, but someone did her wrong with that eye and cheek makeup. Much better in the second pic, but then yikes about the Stella dress.

    Architectural Digest has a fun video up now of her giving a tour of her NY home—she’s lovely as always.

  12. Sierra says:

    Ruth and Liv – two gorgeous women.

  13. Shana says:

    Ruth’s dress is a tacky “prom in the 80s” dress. I understand why Liv chose black, she always had wider frame (compared to her slim face) that doesn’t photograph well. By now means I’m talking about her weight, rather the broadness of her skeletal structure. She’s stunningly beautiful nonetheless

  14. truthhurts says:

    I’m still trying to make some sense of the movie. What kinda space movie is about masculinity. And not being a man and vulnerable. I really won’t to believe that they sat around with Bryan Lourde who was with him and thought of something to discuss about this boring movie. What else can you say, he is looking for dad who is lost!?
    I think it will be weird think piece which he claims he loves. Well OUTIH was the polar opposite and you said that was the best. GMAFB.
    I want someone to have the balls to ask him about his kids! Just one time and see what he says. I guess that is a no no.

    • noway says:

      Are you kidding? He answers questions about them all the time? He has even done adnauseum interviews about how it was all his fault, while passively aggressively blaming Angie for everything. This is just a red carpet about a movie, I’m sure people are screaming how’s the kids, but no one ever answers those questions on the red carpet either, other than fine.

  15. Pixie says:

    Someone on Twitter called Liv Tyler the female Keanu Reeves and I totally agree. She is so unproblematic and exudes the same lovely energy that he does. I don’t know if its the angles, but both of their dresses seem a little ill-fitting. I mean, I love Ruth but is she wearing a clunky waist belt? In this economy? And I can’t wait for these basic ass suits to go out of style, so men are forced into putting in some effort for once. I have hope for the next generation of male stars, because Timothee Chalasomething and Harry Styles would NEVER.

  16. grumpyterrier says:

    Liv’s skin looks amazing! I guess her 1 hour daily skin ritual is paying off.

  17. Jadedone says:

    One of the teen Moms was also at the premier, the Venice film fest has clearly lost its luster

  18. Karen2 says:

    Both these older women looked fantastic imo. Personally it’s nice to see Liv still get good parts. I’d have loved for an id on Brads gorgeous denims. He’s dressing just like TC did when he was early 50s. lol

  19. Kitten says:

    Omgomgomgomgomg Ruth in that gold jumpsuit. <3
    The dark lipstick, her hair and accessories..damn.
    She SERVED it.

    • ZGB says:

      I’m here for the gold jumpsuit. I mean, DAMN!! I wish it was the header for the post or at least came before the matronly 80s floral dress lol. Ruth looks 1000000 in the second outfit

    • dj says:

      Yaaass Ruth Negga! So far the ONLY women to make LV look good (not just shoes or purses). Plus this is tailored exquisitely for Ruth. She is a beautiful, beautiful woman and great actress. Tulip forever! She owns this look.

  20. Kali says:

    Liv is tall and has quite a bit frame so since she gained weight she’s been looking all soft and awkward. I’d love to see her in a more Joan Holloway outfit, showing curves and with plenty of support.

  21. FluffyPrincess says:

    The only thing I’ve ever liked that Stella McCartney designed was Meghan’s white reception dress for her wedding. Literally, nothing else she’s designed I have liked. I honestly do not get why she is considered an A-List designer. Is it because she’s Paul McCartney’s daughter?

  22. Jb says:

    Ruth Negga has an amazing face and I’m jealous of women who can pull off pixie cuts and super short bobs. Is she a fellow shortie(I’m almost 5’2)? She looks so tiny in the jumpsuit…

  23. Lucy says:

    Ruth has the best style.

  24. Chaine says:

    Normally I hate jumpsuits, but that one is bangin’!

  25. phlyfiremama says:

    WHAT DID LIV TYLER DO TO HER FACE??!! OMG she looks…not like herself. Ruth Negga is throwing off some major Betty Boop vibes, she looks fabulous!!

  26. Boxy Lady says:

    I have no idea what the rest of you are talking about. Liv Tyler looks exactly the same to me. It’s just the 42 years old with 2 small children version (as in maybe more tired and a little heavier).

  27. Marianne says:

    With that haircut, Ruth is giving me Josephine Baker vibes…

  28. J ferber says:

    I love Ruth negga’s jumpsuit. Adorable and she looks super-cute in it.

  29. amilou says:

    I watch Harlots, and I honestly can’t tell that Liv Tyler’s done anything to her face (other than age and gain a little weight). She’s a beautiful woman, but I can’t say I’m a fan of her acting (or accent!) on the show. I remember thinking she was SO effective in The Strangers.

  30. Lili says:

    I miss Brangelina. Those were great times

    • Lady D says:

      Yeah, sigh. Miss the excitement they created, her fashion, their heat, the beauty they radiated, and oh the gossip. You always knew when they were in the house.

    • Lauren II says:

      It’s still sad that Brad & Angie split and their family was torn apart. Brad made some very public mistakes, but i was hoping they would keep their family together. Brad still makes me swoon, and he is very talented.

    Cheap, unclassy
