Evan Rachel Wood in another suit: overworked or sexy?


Here are some more photos from last night’s LA premiere of The Ides of March – I already covered the Stacy Keibler/George Clooney stuff here. Considering that Keibler made an effort to look less busted, you’d think that the female stars of the film would try to elevate their style game too. Maybe this is Evan Rachel Wood’s attempt at elevating her game – an attempt and a fail. Look, I don’t have any problems with Evan’s recent attempts to really bring menswear to the red carpet this season. I like that such a young woman is trying such a “grown up” and professional look, and I like that she’s so covered up too. But this particular suit look was a fail. It’s a combination of things – for one, the suit’s cut is unflattering, especially the “drape” of the pants. It’s just awful on a young woman with a nice figure. And then there’s the way she styled the look, with the overworked hair, the too-heavy makeup, the bustier AND the big necklace. She went overboard.



Marisa Tomei improved on her look, though. I love her in shades of red – she’s so pretty, and I believe she’s natural too.


And here’s some Ryan Gosling in green. Thoughts on Ryan’s style? I like that he’s a young guy who’s learning how to dress for formal occasions. I like that he always wears a suit for his premieres. I like that he’s learned how to care about style. That being said, this suit looks like it was made from Army fatigues.

    Marisa Tomei is still smoking hot!!!!

  2. Liz says:

    I’m just grateful that she looks different. In fact, I’m so grateful I don’t trust myself to judge whether or not she looks good.

  3. MarenGermany says:

    i like evan. i think she looks real pretty

  4. brin says:

    Overworked. Marisa and Ryan are looking good.

  5. velourazure says:

    marisa needs new hair.

  6. Ell says:

    I think Evan can wear just about anything and look good. Marisa is always so refreshingly natural looking in contrast to her peers.

  7. Heatheradair says:

    Liz — good point. I think I like ERW because she’s something different (even if that means too much makeup, strange hair, and clothes that age her a little bit). She’s not flashing her bits all over the place, she’s covered up, she’s got her own style….which is a nice change of pace, whether she pulls it off flawlessly or…..not.

  8. Liz says:

    despite the serious smug-face going on, she works the suit well and that doesn’t really depend on the suit

  9. danielle says:

    I don’t like the fit of the pants. Marissa looks pretty good, but her hair looks a bit fried.

  10. SueAnn says:

    ERW is trying too hard. She looked good a few suites ago. Marissa would have looked good with her hair up in a pony tail or messy bun. It is too stringy and deep fried.

  11. Micah says:

    ERW – looks fabulous!

    Marissa looks good….Hair needs help.

    Ryan – looks great too. The color of that suit sucks though.

  12. YvetteW says:

    ERW tries too hard. It should look effortless – No?

  13. gg says:

    People with a very fair complexion always look horrible with the raccoon black eye shadow thing. Nobody learns this apparently.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    (1) The hair looks awful –
    (2) Dont like the white pantsuit
    (3) Ryan’s green suit is weird!

  15. Happy21 says:

    I think ERW has a style all her own and I think that’s great. I like that she’s not feeling the need to prove to everyone she is sexy. The clothes do age her though. I think she could tone that down a little. And I’m sorry to say but she smiles like a bitch. She looks like she is smirking, not smiling.

    Marissa Tomei is gorgeous!

    I like Ryan Goslings green suit. Very fresh and very Fall.

  16. INeedANap says:

    I love ERW’s look. The suits are very sassy, and as a 9-5-er desk job type I hope she can bring back great women’s suits that don’t look boxy or dry. I wish the cut was better though…

  17. Kimberly says:

    Woods may think she can pull anything off, but oh no that outfit is proof she cannot. Is it me or is Rachel not transitioning from young starlet to full woman actress with the same beauty? Her looks seem to be fading . . .

  18. La says:

    I really like ERW’s style.
    Ryan looks good.

  19. Jen34 says:

    Marisa and Ryan look great. EWR looks ridiculous. I somewhat got her appeal when her hair was long, but now she looks like a butch housefrau. Or else as someone noted, her looks are fading.

  20. Ron says:

    Evan looks great–love this look. Marisa looks good but what is up with the leather saddle bags on her hips? Yikes.

  22. Jamie says:

    #18, it’s not just you. I feel the exact same way.

    #20, completely agree.

    ERW tries too hard in my opinion and I just don’t find her attractive anymore and haven’t for quite a while. I never really thought she was that pretty, but she looked so much better with longer hair. Marisa looks pretty, but the hair could use some work. It does look fried. Ryan looks very nice, although the color of that suit is odd.

  23. lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for ERW’s suit, but she has her own style at least. I think she can get away with more than most.
    I would have LOVED Marisa’s dress if it didn’t have the leather apron or whatever’s going on there. But I liked her, and I’m glad she’s had a career resurgence in recent years.

  24. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Not feeling the look, Look better on an older women. I think she looks beautiful but her style is not so great with her new hairstyle.

  25. dj says:

    I love Evan Rachel Wood’s look. I prefer her hair not curled or whatever this is. Maybe she is growing it out. Marisa Tomei is rocking it too.
