As everybody knows, the Brad Pitt flick The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald story in which a guy is born in his 80s and ages backwards to a baby. The premiere, in Westwood, was excellently star-studded: Brad and Angie, natch, costar Cate Blanchett, but also Jennifer Lopez, our girl Tilda Swinton, Eva Longoria, well-dressed young person Emma Roberts, and a cast of thousands. While the goods were good and even the bads had a lot going for them, a few ensembles — notably J.Lo and Cate — defy easy categorization. A curious case, after the jump!



The Good:


Angelina, in good form.


How covetable is Emma Roberts' demure frock?


Tilda Swinton can pull off most things, from the intellectual to the baffling. The fact that she doesn't give a toss is probably why.


The Bad:


Really sick and tired of Eva Longoria's uninspired short, tight and shinies.


Maria Menounos' Bat Mitzvah special is kinda cute, kinda cutesy.


Wow, not feeling Taraji P. Henson's corset at all.


What Say You?


Cate Blanchett has rare powers of pull-offoability - but has she reached her Judy Jetson limit, or is she using her powers for good?


Classic J.Lo or leaving Las Vegas?
