Hailee Steinfeld in Balmain at the LA ‘Bumblebee’ premiere: cute or boring?

Film Premiere of BumbleBee

True story: I’ve never seen an entire Transformers film. I saw parts of the first one, with Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, but I never got into that film, or the franchise as a whole. I have zero clue as to the plotlines at this point, but I trust that there are flashy cars, Transformers, big strong dudes and pretty girls. The current Transformers movie is called Bumblebee, and I guess we could call this a “spinoff” maybe. Bumblebee stars Hailee Steinfeld as the Megan Fox-esque brunette, and John Cena is in it, and Angela Bassett was like “f–k it, I want a nice paycheck too,” and Justin Theroux was like “sure, I’ll voice a Transformer named Dropkick.” And then they all showed up at the LA premiere last night.

Hailee wore this Balmain cocktail dress which is…fine. The dress is perfectly appropriate, interesting to look at, and actually somewhat flattering. I’ve always thought so highly of Hailee’s beauty and talent, so I’m not that happy about the fact that she’s the lead in a Transformers movie, but whatever. I understand why a young actress would say yes to it.

Angela Bassett is wearing a terrible Alberta Ferretti dress and bridesmaid’s shoes. John Cena’s hair is WAY too dark. And Justin is wearing velvet heels.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, she is GORGEOUS. dress is uggo, but her face makes up for it.

      • Marianne says:

        I think the dress is nice. What I wonder is why she didn’t clean up the bowl of spaghetti she spilled on herself before letting them take her picture. Puzzling.

    To be fair, this new transformers movie is being directed by Travis Knight, who, unlike Michael Bay, can tell a story

    Angela Bassett Is a goddess

    Why is Angela Bassett wearing a Gritty costume?

    I actually like Angela Bassett’s dress…on her. No one else. The colors are so vibrant and it looks fun to wear. Also I wish her shoes were different.

    Hailee’s dress is interesting but would have been better sleeveless and longer, just above the knee. It keeps weirding me out, like an eye trick, that one sleeve is different than the other. Why do that.

  7. Veronica S. says:

    God, Angela Bassett is just aging so well. Whatever work she’s had done is damn good. Not sure if I like the shoes with the dress (I think I’d prefer a metallic, yeah?), but otherwise, it fits her beautifully.

    I don’t mind Angela’s dress and I bet it’s FUN FUN FUN to walk in! Justin is wearing a lot of foundation/highlighter lolllllll. Couldn’t make out his little velvet heels properly … unfortunately.
