We’ve got time – Sharp Objects doesn’t start on HBO until July 9th, but here are photos from last night’s premiere event in LA. Sharp Objects is the latest screen-adaptation of a Gillian Flynn book (of the same name). I haven’t read Sharp Objects, but I am a big fan of Flynn’s work, and I think Hollywood is doing some good work with their adaptations of her work. Amy Adams stars as Camille Preaker, a journalist who has been institutionalized for mental illness, and then she returns back to her hometown to cover the grisly murders of two girls. The ads make the miniseries look like a cross between True Detective (season 1) and Twin Peaks. Amy not only stars in the series, she also came on as executive producer. For the premiere, wore this Calvin Klein dress which is great – she looks like a dark princess, but it’s not twee.
Some additional photos from the premiere…. Patricia Clarkson in Jeffrey Dodd – this washes her out a little bit, but she’s still really awesome, so I don’t care. She plays Amy’s character’s mother. Love it when redheads get cast as mother-daughter!
Anna Camp and Skylar Astin. I can’t believe these two ended up together from the cast of Pitch Perfect.
I don’t know, I kind of think Noomi Rapace looks awesome?
Diane Lane wearing a very strange two-piece ensemble.

Love the dress but I have a thing about feet and shoes. If you have a bunion like I do, don’t wear strappy sandals. There are so many other options out there.
LOL!!!! This! +1
The dress is nice, but too dark for summer. Would look lovely in a lighter color, or even a print.
Perhaps her bunions were particularly painful, and this open sandal was all she could manage?
This! The bunion was all I saw. I feel so bad for her poor feet. It looks so painful.
This sounds awesome!
I hesitate to get my hopes up. I haven’t read this one, but I loved the book Dark Places. The film, however, was a hot mess.
The lengths on Diane Lane’s outfit are all wrong.
Yeah, they did an awful job with Dark Places. Sharp Objects is my favorite Flynn novel. The cast looks exactly like I pictured the characters in the book. I am so excited for this!
I saw the first episode earlier this month.
It’s amazing. Sharp Objects is my favorite Flynn as well!
Oh good! Maybe I’ll get my hopes up a little bit. 🙂
I didn’t like the movie Dark places but is my least favourite book of the author. In the other hand, Sharp Objects is my favourite so I am expecting this one to be good since I love the director.
That dress is fab! I am a big Gillian Flynn fan (fellow Chicago girl!). I’ve read all of her books and Sharp Objects is my favorite. I was really disappointed with the adaptation of Dark Places as I think Charlize Theron was woefully miscast as the lead character but I am really excited about this one. I love Amy Adams.
Sharp Objects was the first Flynn book I read and I loved it (well I love all her books). Dark Places was a big letdown but I have a feeling this one will be good 🙂
Dark Places could have been brilliant, but it was terrible for all sorts of reasons. I’ve heard this one is A+ though!
Diane Lane always a beautiful woman, don’t care what she is wearing.
Why doesn’t she get more work? Netflix get her a show!
Love her too.I think her entire outfit actually works well,I like how the shoes kind of tie everything together in a summer,comfortable,bohemian vibe,and she’s just beautiful and ageless.
I love the top!
I liked this book but actually thought it was the most twisted out of the three. So I am interested to see how it turns out on TV.
I think everyone looks great.
I can’t wait to see this! Great cast.
I’ve read Gone Girl (excellent movie too) and Dark Places (way too dark for me, and I heard the movie wasn’t good so I skipped it) but I never got around to Sharp Objects. Maybe I’ll have the chance to read it before this premieres!
That blue on Noomi is stunning! I’ve heard rumblings that this adaptation is great, so I’m really looking forward to it. I loved the book (well, until the unnecessary twist-twist-TWIST!! at the end).
I’m a Swede so I should be patriotic about her, but I really don’t like Noomi Rapace and I especially do not appreciate her style. It’s awful. Especially on the red carpet. The color in this case is the only vaguely nice thing about this whole outfit.
This is going to be awesome. The reason Dark Places failed is because the goddess Charlize cast herself as a 4’ 10” redhead. The physical characteristics play a significant part in the plot and the character development. It was a bad fit.
Sharp Objects is a great book, and the acting (yes, I’m calling it that) in the audible version is top shelf.
Wasn’t Amy Adams pregnant again? Did she have the baby? Am I mixing her up with someone else?
No she was pregnant with her second child… But then suddenly she wasn’t pregnant anymore and probably gave birth without anybody paying attention to it!
