While this upcoming weekend’s box office will likely be dominated by some combination of Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby and Iron Man 3, indie film enthusiasts are exploding with anticipation for the release of Frances Ha, the latest film from director Noah Baumbach (Kicking And Screaming, Greenberg). The film has been scoring strong reviews from big name critics —it’s currently rated 94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes— but more importantly, it stars Greta Gerwig, an incredibly talented young actress that Hollywood hasn’t quite figured out what to do with yet. She’s been cast in big budget rom coms (she was one of Natalie Portman‘s BFFs in No Strings Attached, and played the Liza Minelli role in the remake of Arthur), but Frances Ha is arguably the first film which fully showcases this naturalistic actor’s many talents. Whether you’re familiar with her work or just seeing her face for the first time right now, here are 5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Sleep On Greta Gerwig.
Katy Perry probably didn’t want to steal the show at hubbie Russell Brand‘s Arthur premiere in London last night, but she could have found a gown more flattering than this flesh-toned number from Philip Armstrong. Do you think it’s drab, or perfect for a night of photographed public displays of affection? Check out the gallery for a closer look, as well as shots of premiere attendees Helen Mirren, Greta Gerwig and Jessica Lowndes.

They totally did, right? Considering how chummy Russell Brand and Helen Mirren became over the course of filming the movie together, we wouldn’t be surprised if they coordinated outfits! The two Brits looked as in sync as a (broken up) boy band at the New York premiere of Arthur. Our favorite Dame looks as elegant as ever in a griege pleated outfit, with perfect hair and the right jewelry. Brand opted for a skinny suit in the same color and we appreciate the insouciant touches like the gold key chain and metallic shoes!
Jennifer Garner looks completely different from her two co-stars opting for darker, more metallic colors and we love her look! She’s looking better than we’ve seen in a long time in Oscar de la Renta and Cartier jewels. Greta Gerwig holds her own in monochrome, ’40s hair and red lips and that high-waisted skirt type silhouette that’s super hard to pull off!
