I get "tear-jerker," but My Sister's Keeper, a story of childhood cancer, forced donations, legal battles, etc. takes it to another level. But! Cameron, Abigail, and Rachels Roy and Zoe, all seemed so... happy at NYC's AMC Lincoln Square.
Cameron Diaz plays a woman whose daughter has acute promyelocytic leukemia. Here, she plays Cameron Diaz, a movie star whose name is attached to the words "California girl" 95% of the time.
Sofia Vassilieva plays Cameron's daughter. At first I worried her dress was a little mature (yes, "worried." I don't know how I sleep) but in fact, she's nearly 17.
Abigail Breslin, on the other hand, is 13. My mom didn't let me wear anything strapless to Bar Mitvahs, so I've sort of inherited that prejudice. But she seems like a seriously nice kid, so it's all good. I direct her attention to the ultimate child-star-turned-perfect-age-apropos-dresser, Dakota Fanning.
Now. Authors at premieres are always one of the highlights, and props on Jodi Picault's dress choice. But: curly girls everywhere: don't fear the volume! Seriously, it's more flattering! Especially with an open neckline! I speak from bitter experience.
Since Carol Kane objects to being reduced to a cultural stereotype, probably objects to thirty-year-old film references, I'll avoid any mention of Alison Porchnik, Princess Bride, bag lady costumes. I mean, she's someone who's earned the right to wear and do whatever she wants and still look like herself, so: awesome.
Wow, it's been a while since we saw the peerless Rachel Roy in a dress! As usual, she looks effortless - even in bridesmaid peach!
When did Rachel Zoe go from villainess to "Oh, Rachel, you harmless, vaguely endearing icon with your jumpsuits!" Wow, that show is genius PR!
