Considering yesterday’s Tribeca Ball red carpet was more meh than fabulous, we expected the Tribeca Film Festival’s Vanity Fair party to up the ante. Sadly, it didn’t. There were some stand-outs. Jessica White nailed it again in a cream gown with lace overlay and a sexy slit up the draped thigh. Helena Christensen looked fresh and fine in a summery white cocktail frock which was yards better than her pastoral maxi at the Tribeca Ball. Sticking to the white theme was Leelee Sobieski wore a very simple Jil Sander gown (see above right) that we absolutely love. Unfortunately, she killed it with a weird Star Wars-esque ‘do.
There were a couple of other head-scratchers too. Like why would Catherine Zeta-Jones put on that terribly unflattering metallic gray Michael Kors frock? Why would someone as gorgeous as Lily Cole put on a glorified sack? Why would Dakota Fanning (who was also a juror in the World Competition Category) put on a weird headband when her hot pink Lanvin dress was lovely enough on its own? To answer all these questions and to ask a couple of your own, head to the gallery to check out what everyone wore.

Hats off to the casting team in charge of Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart‘s next film which is currently in the pre-production stage in London. Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Sam Clafin are headlining alongside Stewart, but the supporting crew is equally as A-List. Bob Hoskins, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard and Eddie Marsan (OMG have you seen Sherlock? See Sherlock!) have all signed on board to play dwarfs. Just this weekend it was announced that Hurt Locker actor Sam Spruell and supermodel Lily Cole have also joined the film as Finn, the Queen’s “henchman” and Greta, respectively.
The latest additions to the cast highlight Universal’s impressive job at rounding up talent for the film. Theron is an Oscar winner, Hoskins is Oscar-nominated, Hemsworth is set to be the next big action star, Stewart is arguably the most sought after actress of her generation, Claflin is an adorable newbie with an impressive resume and Izzard is an iconic comedian. Well played, Universal.We hope the star power translates into screen magic for the film, which goes intro production in the fall and will be out in theaters next summer.
Some stars bring their chicest getups to the Cannes Film Festival, and some totally miss the mark with their outfits. From sheer atrocities to overdone trim, these starlets really didn’t make the cut when it comes to red carpet fashion.
