Am I the only one who'd sort of forgotten about The X-Files before the posters for the film version started showing up everywhere? Well, anyway, it premiered last night at Mann's Chinese Theatre in L.A. and apparently other people, were, like aware of it, because a lot of them showed up: Amanda Peet, an unusually tasteful (but not that tasteful) Bai Ling, and, of course, Mulder and Scully. Plenty of lousy clothes, after the jump.

You know I'm in awe whenever someone pulls off lemon. Well played, Lindsay Sloane.

Madelein Martin's frock is a strange choice for July, but I still like it.

Pea-soup green is rarely a good idea. I think Madeline Zima's dress would be a don't in any color.

I don't know, maybe Pamela Adlon's suit is more the thing in L.A.

You're always hearing about how easy and flattering wrap dresses are. Tia Carrere's? Not so much.

In spite of my love of X-File as a girl, I don't seem to remember anyone crying out for this movie to be made. It also REALLY snuck up on us amid a season of anticipated films, so poor timing.

And maybe I'm just horribly ill-informed or uncultured, but it strikes me that the only thing (other than an episode of Lost) I have seen Bai Ling do lately is red carpets. I saw her at an event when I was in LA and she seriously just sat on the edge of a couch in the Esquire House staring into space for HOURS. This has convinced me that she is a red carpet robot, taken out to wear pretty clothes, and then she goes into "power save" mode when the cameras are off.
