The Dark Knight New York premiere was not bad, sartorially-speaking. And you'd think after breaking all those box-office records over the weekend, the residents of Gotham City would be riding high.

You know what's weird about actress Roxanna McKee's silver number? That the high neck somehow makes it less tasteful.

In the case of actress Freema Agyeman, I really just didn't like the dress much.

Has anybody already noted that Peaches Geldof overdosed and nearly died the night before she attended the premiere?

The silly lass is reported to have started crying hysterically at the thought of her dad finding out. Especially since her mum died of a drug overdose.
