Dakota Fanning looks strange & more photos from the ‘Breaking Dawn 2′ premiere

Here are some more photos from last night’s LA premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2. We already covered the “important” people from the premiere, Kristen and Rob. This post is for the less important people, obviously. There was a lot of bad fashion at last night’s premiere. A lot of prom dresses and a lot of half-smug, half-worried expressions. Like, the Twilight franchise is going to be the absolute height of many of these actors’ careers. So… enjoy them while they last.

I don’t think Dakota Fanning is one of those people who will be defined by Twilight. She’s a talented actress in her own right, and I think she’ll continue to get work. Unfortunately, she seems to be going through a very awkward phase right now. Dakota wore Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012 collection – it’s a pretty dress. But her styling is a mess. That brunette shade is not flattering, and her makeup is terrible.

Here’s Elizabeth Reaser in Carolina Herrera. Is she at the Oscars? Did she need to wear this full-on gown? Maybe I’m biased – I really dislike this woman. She’s a horrible actress. She was terrible in her guest role on The Good Wife.

Poor Taylor Lautner. Is he going to have a career beyond this franchise? Poor kid.

Saoirse Ronan in Simone Rocha. I love her. I love her dress. I love her shoes. I love how age-appropriate she is.

Here are your favorite people in the world, the real stars of Twilight! Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed. I don’t really have anything against Nikki, but I do wonder what she’s going to do beyond this franchise. Ashley is wearing Donna Karan (she’s the face of the label), and Nikki is wearing Versace. I like Nikki’s dress better. It suits her and flatters her. Kellan Lutz knows you enjoy his Kellan Lutzy purple lapels. KELLAN LUTZ!!!

Elle Fanning in head-to-toe Prada. Look at her shoes!!!

Stephenie Meyer looks pretty good here.

Teresa Palmer has a great body. I’m not sure this dress highlights it appropriately.

And I’ll end it on a high note – Michael Sheen in velvet! He just does this crap for the money, you know? I love him.

    I actually thought she looked really nice with the reddish brown hair. I like it better than the blonde, really.

  2. Sandy says:

    I like Ashley’s dress but not really in that colour. Everyone else, yikes!

  3. LadyMTL says:

    I could maybe give Dakota Fanning a pass as far as the dress goes but omg, that hair and makeup! I honestly didn’t recognize her at first; now I just want to give her a face cloth and tell her to wipe the clown away. Sigh.

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      Seriously! What did these people do to their stylists? This is a huge orchestrated collected fuck you from them. I love Sheen’s smirk that just screams “I’m FREE and thanks for the cash”.

      Dakota, oh god, I love her but the dress is so prom night. The makeup and hair is weird … I can’t even express why it’s wrong but it just is. Does not work.

      Lutzy is the best. The purple … the serial killer smile … all work for him.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Everybody looks like crap. Sadly, the only ensemble I can stomach is Ashley Greene’s dress.

    Dakota Fanning looks like a different person. She’s not stunning but come on, she’s prettier than this shit show.

    Kellan Lutz looks like a ringleader in a Circus…what a mess.

    I don’t know who Saoirse Ronan is but holy crap, that outfit is awful. Terrible.

  5. Ramona says:

    No pictures of Billy Burke? Best actor in the bunch except for Michael Sheen…

  6. Bluedog says:

    When I was a kid there were these trampoline shoes that you strapped to your feet. They were two pieces of foot shaped metal, between which were rows of springs. That’s what Elle’s hideous shoes look like.

  7. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    Maybe Dakota’s stylist is team Rpatz and didn’t care for her interview defending Kristen… The hair in an updo might have looked better..?

    Side note: Since that Nikki Reed post about dry shampoo My hair went from oily and straw-like to full and healthy… just saying

    • victoria says:

      My hair too! I actually enjoyed everyone’s comments and tips for hair. Maybe Celebitchy can do more beauty items? I’ve been using Bedhead Rockstar dry shampoo

      Ok back to the blog post: Dakota is not growing up pretty, like Jodie Foster didn’t.
      Nikki & Ashley are the best dressed ones.
      Kellan looks hilarious, his facial expressions are the best.
      The Dakota sister, looks horrible. Those shoes should be burned.
      And who cares about the rest

  8. Ms Kay says:

    E! : Here is Kellan Lutz, wow looking all dapper, who is the designer?

    Kellan Lutz : I’m wearing Kellan Lutz.

    E! : wow how dashing!

    Kellan Lutz : Kellan Lutz dashing yes.

    E! : how excited you must be, it is the last chapter of a tremendous saga, how does it feel, the end of an era?

    Kellan Lutz : It Kellan Lutz feels good. I mean I had a great Kellan Lutz time, we’re all a Kellan Lutz family now. And it’s not the end of an era, it’s a Kellan Lutz beginning.

  9. Esmom says:

    As for Taylor Lautner’s career, I wonder too. He was on the local news this morning with the entertainment reporter and his demeanor seemed very Tom Cruise-esque. So earnest and try hard and not very substantive when pressed. For some reason I could seem him modeling his career after Cruise’s. Or at least trying to.

  10. mia girl says:

    Michael Sheen said his velvet jacket, which was even more red in person, was made of the blood of fairies and nymphs. Love him!!!!

  11. Zigggy says:

    Dakota reminds me of Ginny Weasley here.

  12. KelBear says:

    I am not a big fan of Twilight but I did watch some of the premier on Yahoo last night. Dakota said her brown hair was for a film she just finished and decided to keep the brown for a little longer. The premier seemed very chaotic and when they interviewed Kristen she was her normal self, akward and more akward.

  13. Marianne says:

    You think she looks terrible??

    I for one…LOVE the new hair colour. And I also love the dress as well.Especially from the back.

    Hate Elle’s though. It looks like a sack. And I hate Nikki’s as well.

  14. Dani says:

    No idea who Saoirse Ronan but would it kill her to not stand that way? You’re an ACTRESS, you have a reputation to uphold, the shoes are gross, so at least don’t force a pigeon toe.

  15. GoodCapon says:

    There are a lot of awful dresses on one single post. Kaiser have mercy! I love the color of Dakota’s dress though.

    It’d be interesting to know what will happen to Taylor’s and co. careers after the franchise. They’re just not popular, nor are they talented. They’re probably land in C-listdom unless they can score another blockbuster.

  16. yael says:

    kellan lutz is just so deeply unattractive…

  17. Carolyn says:

    can we just refer to Kellan as Klutz? None of these people have any acting ability except for Dakota and Saorise. They must be very worried about where their next paychecks will be coming from.

  18. mln76 says:

    Saorsie Ronan is so f-ing talented she does not belong anywhere near Twilight.
    I feel bad for Lautner he seems nice enough but he can’t act.
    Pretty much all of then except for Fanning are headed to the Lifetime Movie roster.

  19. angie says:

    Ooh Ashley Greene… She is like Jessica Alba & Biel, this girl. A big star and talented actress in her own mind, and so delusionnal.
    Ashley in Seventeen:
    On her hopes for life in five years: “Healthy and happy. Ideally my career will be extremely stable. I really don’t want to be here for a minute and then gone the next. (…) And I want to win an Oscar or an Emmy.”

    This need to stop. All these limited actresses talking about oscars like it’s a possibility (lindsay lohan, biel etc…). Why nobody tell these girls to have attainable goals? Hollywood doesn’t need bad & bland “actresses” overreaching their limits and trying to win awards, that will probably never happen.

    It’s the same thing with the Jessica, they are Tv actresses not movie stars (and there is nothing wrong to be a working actress on a Tv show). But they are acting like tv is beneath them. They would probably have a better career with a role in a good tv show, instead Biel is doing bad action movies remakes and Alba shared the screen with Lindsay Lohan (in Machete) when their movies don’t go straight to dvd or don’t even find funding (Jessica Biel’s Nailed; Alba’s an invisible sign with a 0% score on rotten tomatoes).

  20. rtms says:

    Dakota’s been filming Night Moves in Oregon for the last month and had to dye her hair for the role. It’s not too bad, though it seems to make her face a little fuller. The bad is the awful white body makeup she used with it. If she just kept her true skin color it would have looked much better. But that vampire makeup was just a turn off. Come on Dakota you can do so much better!

  21. lucy2 says:

    That Theresa Palmer person looks like she’s being censored with black bars.

    I like Dakota’s dress, but all the other looks are pretty bad.

  22. serena says:

    I like Dakota as a brunette, the problem is the styling and make up.. also the dress is a good color but doesn’t really fit her well.
    That being said I loathe Elle’s shoes.. ugh and her dress was kind of meh..too strange!
    Still, I love the Fanning sisters. They’re cute and talented, Dakota is a REAL actress (as opposite of all the other so called actors there) and she really has a full curriculum. There is simply no way she’ll stop at this, not even space for speculation, I think this was like a break for her (since she doesn’t even do too much in the movies).

  23. angie says:

    And poor Saoirse Ronan. She is doing a film adaptation of another stephenie meyer’s novel (“the host”, I think). She is so talented and lovely, stefanie meyer’s crappy book should be beneath her.
    I think she wants to have a franchise/ big movie to gain more recognition but she lost the role of Katniss in Hunger games, and I hoped she would wait forsomething special after that but she signed on the host…. I would have loved to see her play the lead role in the adaptation of the YA novel “Divergent” but shailene woodley is the frontrunner, right now (I find her a little precious and pretentious, IMO).

    Anna Kendrick will have a career outside twilight, she is the most talented of the bunch.
    I always forget that Anna got a nomination for up in the air. God, Kellan “will win an oscar someday but I don’t want it for the moment” Lutz was probably pissed and surprised that he wasn’t the first member to be nominated. Same for Ashley Greene.

  24. themummy says:

    Saorsie Ronan (incredible actress!!) looks like she’s 8-years-old in that outfit. Not sure how old she is, but she looks a little juvenile in that awkward outfit, in my opinion. But also, I haven’t my coffee yet and I’m a raging bitch until I do that.

  25. LucyOriginal says:

    I had no idea Saorsie Ronan was in this cr*ppy twilight saga. She is so much better and talented than most of the cast combined. Argh!

    Am I the only one who thinks Dakota looks prettier as a brunette?

    • Marianne says:

      She’s not in Twilight.

      She is in the Host though. So she’s probably there to support Stephanie Meyer/Summit.

      But she’s not actually in the movie. Just like Elle is not in the movie, but she’s probably there for her sister.

      Julianne Hough was also there. And she’s not in the movie. She was probably there to either watch the movie and/or for the media.

    • angie says:

      Saoirse isn’t in Twilight. But she will be in the host, another big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel (urgh). And the guys who walked the red carpet with Saoirse are her co-stars in the host. So, I suppose they were at the BD part II premiere to support Stephenie Meyer and to do some kind of early promotional work for their upcoming film.

  26. lw says:

    Didn’t Vogue or some other big fashion mag declare that the Fanning sisters are the new fashion “it girls”? This is what happens when you look to children to be fashion idols. They look ridiculous…like children playing dress up.

  27. emmie_a says:

    Elle looks horrible. Her hair is too bleached and flat, her dress has no shape and is an especially bad color for her complexion and there’s nothing to say about those shoes.

  28. I Choose Me says:

    I find Elle Fanning’s shoes strangely appealing. I mean they don’t look very comfortable to walk in, they are not very aesthetically pleasing and yet… Maybe it’s the ‘huh. that’s different. and interesting’ factor.

  29. jennypenny says:

    She needs to head back to blonde street,brunette is packing a helluva lot of weight around her face!!!

  30. Mary says:

    I just remembered, isn’t Lee Pace supposed to be in this film. Love him! Where is he?

  31. Unbeweavable says:

    I agree that Elizabeth Reaser is an awful actress. I hated her in her guest stint on Grey’s. She was just so bad. Her lips and frozen look on her face annoy me. It’s like a deer in headlights that had lip fillers. Just no..
    She does have nice hair though.

  32. pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Dakota’s dress is quite prom-ish to me, and the brown hair doesn’t do much for her either, it’s okay but it’s definitely not great. Elizabeth Reeser is passably pretty in that dress, as usual, nothing spectacular. Forever mediocre. Poor Taylor, I really have a feeling that he will pretty much fade into obscurity after Twilight, which is kinda sad cuz although he is not by any means a great actor, he just seems like a really nice guy and I’ll be sad to see him go. Saoirse looks pretty good, obviously her stance is questionable, but whatever, she’s young. I feel like we won’t be seeing much of Ashley and Nikki either after Twilight, but I don’t particularly care about those two. Kellan Lutz wears SO MUCH MAKEUP. Is it just me? I feel like he’s wearing more makeup than all the ladies in the photos, it’s such a turn-off, I can’t even explain it. Elle Fanning, although I love her, looks absolutely ridiculous in that outfit, it just doesn’t even make sense from any point of view, the shoes are out-of-this-world ridiculous.

  33. Cali says:

    I adore Nikki. She is not as try-hard and famewhorey as some. She has been one of the few to really stay focused on the fans since the first movie. Last night she skipped going in to see the film because she promised the fans she’d hang outside and sign their stuff. Pretty cool of her in my book. She was really trying to help fans stay as connected as they were back during the filming of the first movie. It was such an organic, grass roots kind of thing before it became this crazy monster.

    The photos don’t do her dress, hair and makeup justice – she was beyond gorgeous! Ashley, too.

  34. Elizabeth says:

    Re : Michael Sheen doing movies like this for the money.

    He’s a Brit, isn’t he? British actors understand that acting is A JOB and they don’t take themselves too seriously because of this. They are never too pompous to take schlock work as long as the pay check is there. I love that about them. It gets them into such interesting roles particularly later in their careers.

  35. Reece says:

    Those Prada shoes look like what docs put you in when you shatter your ankles.

    Dakota looks so different. Idk my opinion on it yet.

    Reaser, Reed and Saoirse’s dresses I like.

    Greene’s reminds me of that Armani dress Megan Fox wore a long time ago.

  36. ms. heart says:

    Taylor Lautner pings my Gaydar majorly and Ashley Greene looks stunning. just my 5 cents. Done.

  37. Silk Spectre says:

    I have to make a confession: for the longest time, I didn’t realize Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene were two different people. I’d read these Twilight posts and go: “Oh, Nikki Reed, I thought she was called Nikki Greene.” Or Ashley Reed. Or possibly Ashley Nikki.

    And even now, when I do know they’re not one person, I couldn’t tell you which is which.

  38. apsutter says:

    I actually like the brown hair because I think it brings out her eyes more. The blond kind of washed her out sometimes. I definitely don’t think she will be defined by Twilight. In fact, I think she’ll go on to have a great career and we’ll forget she was even in it. Then when we look at retrospectives of all the work she’s done we’ll be like “oh yea…she was in that crappy franchise.”

  39. Lady D says:

    Elle looks like she’s freezing in that outfit.

  40. Janet says:

    Taylor Lautner looks good. Everybody else looks godawful.

  41. Diana says:

    I actually liked Dakota’s hair; it gives her a little color. Also, how can you hate on elizabeth and say you like Saoirse’s dress? Elizabeth is a cool chick, if you thought she was bad on TGW, you should have seen her on Grey’s anatomy, she was awsome there, and Saoirse’s dress is just plain ‘ole fug.

  42. bokaki says:

    when i see kellan lutz all I can think of is a blind item about spanking….

  43. Katie says:

    I absolutely love the darker hair on Dakota!! She looks lovely and grown up. Major win for her.

  44. Jennifer12 says:

    The blond washes her out. She looks terrific as a brunette. And I don’t think the dress is bad at all.

  45. Sweet Dee says:

    The reason she looks strange is the reason Jen Lawrence looked weird yesterday in the still from the movie with BCoopz.

    If you wear strong eyeliner, or strong eye makeup in general, you have to color your eyebrows in darker. They both have sparse brows, so when their eye makeup is strong and brow coloring is weak, it looks odd. It looks worse when the brows don’t have a defined shape, but Dakota’s are shaped well. Makes them look round in the face and beady eyed, even with someone as un-beady eyed as Dakota.

    You’re welcome.

  46. Elly says:

    …some really strange looking people…

  47. lbeees says:

    Oh my god. They aLL look bad.

    But call me cray, Nikki, Kellan & Ashley look like a blast to kick it with. I’d go for a night on the town with that trio!

  48. Velouria says:

    I will be so glad when this red lipstick trend is over…it makes most people look like trannies or Michael Jackson.

  49. LucyOriginal says:

    For those of you who follow twilight, where is Anna Kendrick? She is the only one I liked there.

  50. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Poor wee Dakota looks as though someone has hit her full in the face with a bag of flour. Against the dull red hair it’s just a disaster.

  51. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Elle Fanning’s shoes … Geisha, meets clog, meets bondage.
