Uma Thurman is said to have pulled a Renee Zellweger at the premiere of her new show, The Slap, in New York City on Monday. Sporting a bare-faced look with hardly any color on her eyelids and cheeks, Uma, like Renee, was almost unrecognizable to many. The 44-year-old actress’ stark black coat, black strapless dress, and black clutch further emphasized the lack of color on her face.
We here at Your Next Shoes, for one, are digging Uma’s fresh-faced appearance. Maybe we’re just so used to seeing Uma in heavy makeup that we think her unmade face isn’t her real one?
Peep Uma’s look at The Slap premiere and tell us if you think she got some work done or if she’s just trying the bare-faced trend:

Perfectly matching Uma’s bare-faced look were these barely-there black leather sandals on her feet:

Being 5’11”, Uma can afford to ditch heels and just go for flats. Thanks to elegant flat styles like the one below from Manolo Blahnik, it’s easy to be red-carpet-ready even without towering stilettos.
Joining Uma at the premiere were her co-stars, Melissa George and Thandie Newton. Melissa was in contrast to Uma’s all-black outfit in a white long-sleeve shirt, a white pleated skirt, and Azzedine Alaia nude cage sandals.
Thandie provided the pop of color in an orange floral-print sleeveless dress with a cut-out waist from Suno. Celebrity-favorite Christian Louboutin “Iriza” pumps in white completed her springtime ensemble.
