We hate to tear you away from all the American Music Awards glamour, but with looks this good from Hitchcock's NYC premiere, we had to bring you a first look at Jessica Biel's and Scarlett Johansson's jaw-dropping arrivals. The film's leading ladies debuted two standout ensembles for the occasion with two very different angles. Jessica Biel brought on the glitz in a silver sequined tunic-and-trouser set, complete with megawatt Lorraine Schwartz earrings. Meanwhile, Scarlett worked a Rodarte minidress with a gorgeous, leafy print and then turned up the drama with a deep-burgundy lip and a pair of cutout booties. Neither actress channeled the early-'60s-era fashion of the film, instead opting for modern, high-wattage premiere styles, each with its own version of the wow factor. Now, we're turning it over to you: which Hitchock beauty's look really wowed you?
The trailer for Hitchcock looks like it's going to prove that some of the most fascinating movies are the ones about the movie business. Anthony Hopkins plays legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in this drama, which focuses on the time in his life when he was making the film Psycho, as well as his relationship with his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren). As a Hitchcock fan, it's exciting to watch the iconic horror film going through production (which includes a wigged-up Scarlett Johansson as starlet Janet Leigh), though I had no idea that the director had encountered such opposition when he was making Psycho. It's fun watching the drama unfold — and witnessing the sometimes funny dynamic between Hitchcock and his wife.
Hopkins does an impressive rendering of Hitchcock in this preview, but really, everything presented here looks fantastic. There's a great cast (Toni Collette and Jessica Biel also star), a bit of Psycho's signature creepiness (poor Johansson looks like she's genuinely being tortured in the infamous shower scene), and a taste of the tense score by Danny Elfman. Hitchcock comes out Nov. 23, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Fans of Alfred Hitchcock's movies will enjoy this LA Times piece that breaks down the archetypal Hitchcock heroine (though, if you allow me to be a film geek, I'd argue that Hitch didn't have any real heroines, but that's neither here nor there). Check out two of the ways to get the quintessential look:
- Hitchcock's favorite coif was a tight, coiled-up do in a shade of brut Champagne. Typically, those severe buns would unravel as the character encountered obstacles such as dementia, amnesia or a savage attack by crows.
