These are photos of The Bling Ring‘s special screening in New York City last night. I’m still not convinced that this movie is going to be “all that,” and while I did enjoy Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, her directing style turned to one of excess somewhere around Marie Antoinette. Oh well, I’m sure this movie probably wasn’t that expensive to make with Emma Watson as the only real star plus a bunch of unknown actresses and actors, so the film will probably make modest returns.
Emma wore a rather subdued little black dress that I thought was pretty cute and featured a v-neck and low back with a slightly ruffled hemline. This is the sort of dress I would wear if I could get away with not wearing a bra. I can appreciate that while Emma is the star of the premiere, she didn’t wear anything huge or flashy, and she looks so lovely while embracing her natural skin color and not going for the orange vibe like her movie character. Plus, that sleek hair and slash of crimson lipstick are just yummy.
Sofia Coppola played it safe on the red carpet as per her usual routine with a floaty white dress that looks like an extra-long t-shirt. Her hair looks exactly like mine does at this very moment, which tells me that we’re both in need of a change.
Here are photos of Jonny Lee Miller, Steven Tyler, and Terry Richardson. I like to call this series, “From Hot … to Not.”
