Ethan Cohen, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Joel Cohen

Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt and George Clooney are bookended by the Coen Brothers while promoting Burn After Reading at the Venice Film Festival. They all may be a part of the same flick, but they fer sure ain't sharing a similar fashion sense.

Joel and Ethan are behind-the-scenes director types, so we'll give their humdrum outfits a pass (tho ya think you could sport a tie or something when screening your movie?) Francie McD, howevs, looks like a schoolteacher at a liberal arts college in the '50s—that, or a World War II nurse. If only she had a nice retro 'do to match, but no, babe didn't even pack a comb in her carry-on.

Brad looks like a shiny pimp made out of limestone, and Cloonz could dress up as the Easter bunny and still look doable, that's never been his problem. Trouble is, the dull-colored suits are getting way boring, Georgie-Boy. We'd love to see ya sparkle with some hot pink hot pants for once. Take a fashion tip from slightly creepy and always kooky Tildy, who looks like she took a tumble in a sushi restaurant and had a bucket load of roe splashed on her shoulders.

This sextet is far from sexy, more so ridiculous standing next to one another. Prolly fits their quirkfest film down to a T.
