There was no shortage of bombshells at the German premiere of Sherlock Holmes last night. Lead actress Rachel McAdams looked beautiful in a blue one-sleeved gown and pin-curled bob. January Jones of Mad Men strolled the red carpet looking ravishing in a fitted black number with mega-ruffled shoulders. Which petite blonde looked better? [Photos: Getty Images]
Also in Berlin was Sherlock himself Robert Downey, Jr. with his wife Susan, villain Mark Strong, and director Guy Ritchie. Reppin’ her home country, Inglourious Basterds‘ beauty Diane Kruger stopped by.

Both onscreen and off, Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr.‘s relationship has had people buzzing. The Sherlock Holmes co-stars claim to have had instant chemistry on the set, and Downey Jr. even joked that he was sorry he and Law couldn’t be lovers in real life, saying “Disappointingly, he is entirely heterosexual.”
The film too has some pretty homoerotic undertones, and that has one important person upset. Andrea Plunket, the woman who controls the U.S. copyright to all things Sherlock Holmes, said that the gay thing doesn’t fly with her. “It would be drastic, but I would withdraw permission for more films to be made if they feel that is a theme they wish to bring out in the future,” Plunket said. “I am not hostile to homosexuals, but I am to anyone who is not true to the spirit of the books.” In a nutshell, Sherlock isn’t into guys, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Well, if they can’t make a proper sequel, at least the name makes for a punny, off-brand film title. Sherlock Homo, anyone? [Photo: GettyImages]
Rachel McAdams ran away with our hearts in The Notebook, made us cringe in Mean Girls, and held her own amidst comedy veterans in Wedding Crashers. The versatile, stunning actress will seemingly continue her hot streak as Irene Adler in Sherlock Holmes. While she’s managed to maintain her credibility by keeping a low-profile off-screen, she’s no shrinking violet when the time comes to get glam’d up. Take a look back at her year in fashion.
