Hey, so, remember when earlier in the week we went to the U.S. X-Files: I Want to Believe premiere and it was super-depressing and kinda lame? Yeah, well, now you get to relive that experience, only this time, in London. I mean, I'll see the movie, for old times' sake, if only to find out exactly how many close encounters with every form of the paranormal Scully needs to have before she ceases to be so skeptical. And in any event, Mulder and Scully (left) looked pretty good last night. But the various Brit B-listers who showed? Not so much. Anyhoo, the Good, the Bad, and the Daughters of Rich Guys... after the jump.



The Good:

It's funny: Gillian Anderson's one of those actresses who frequently looked awful on the red carpet. And then she gets pregnant and boom! Suddenly she's amazing 100% of the time.

I'll admit to a period where The Tudors was my guilty pleasure, and as such, I am glad to see Natalie "Ann Boleyn" Dormer looking good.

These two elegant lovelies are Sam and Amanda Merchant. They are "sexy twins" and were on Big Brother. Yes.

I saw an interview with Gillian Anderson on Leno recently, where she talked about how she was at a party and Posh was there with this big collared shirt/dress getup, and as she was walking into the party she (Posh) passed by Gillian who reached out and "fixed" (as in un-popped) her collar. Gillian said she thought she was doing her a favor, fixing her shirt, and it wasn't until after it happened, when Posh wheeled around and fixed her with a horrified stare, that she realized she had ruined the whole point of the outfit, and then spent the whole party guiltily looking over at her as Posh tried to keep her re-popped collar up.

It was her example of how she's a walking faux pas, and clearly her example of why she and I need to be best friends ASAP.

Then I watched my own personal mini-marathon of X-Files.
