On an unusually warmish December night the NY “Did You Hear About the Morgans” premiere got under way at the Ziegfeld Theater in midtown after much fanfare.
This being a Sarah Jessica Parker (and Hugh Grant) flick, the photo brigade came out in full force. Some 60+ in total. Of course this was largely due to SJP being associated as a fashionista.
But apparantly the stylist portion of her brain went on holiday. (More like Patricia Field wasn’t hired on this film so she wasn’t doing the duty.) Cuz girl showed up wearing basic black. Fashionable? Yes. Sellable? Not really. Just imagine the deafening grunts of disappointment. The sighs ran the entire photo stop and repeat area.
But what can you do… Even diva’s need a moment to keep it simple and dress it down – I reckon.
As for me, Hugh Grant smiling my way eased the disappointment of his costar lackluster ensemble choice. But I’m easy…
The film opens in theaters on December 18th.
