Celebs Embark On Fashionable Self-Discovery For Eat, Pray, Love


OMFG it’s here. Eat, Pray, Love premiered last night at NYC’s Ziegfeld Theatre. And while I regret to inform you Franco was MIA, there was enough star-power and eye-candy — sartorial or otherwise — to please the most discerning seeker.

Julia showcases 88 inches of therapy in this exercise in tailored brevity.

Javier Bardem wears suiting almost as well.

Arlene Tur is, for some reason, Oscar-worthy! Not that this isn’t deco-lovely in its way.

Phylicia Rashad is like, “EPL-inspired?” Please. I’ve been rocking embroidery and gorgeous textiles since before Gilbert was born.

Everyone probably expected Gilbert to show up in a caftan or something from her travels (such as one of the hundred clothing lines she “inspired”); I love that she confounded that with peppermint-stripe formalwear.

Like I said, plenty of eye-candy! Billy Crudup can wear a suit.

People tended to either go loose and ethereal, or go with the contemporary flow and rock skintight, a la Andrea Roth.

Sunny Anderson

Or Anne Burrell! (Aren’t these uncomfy in a 2-hour movie?)

Chef Gail Simmons has been shilling for EPL all over Bravo; no shocker that she’s here! Looking demure – almost office-ready.

In the “ethereal” camp, we have Amy Pascal.

And, of course, Sandra Lee, who’s carefully positioned herself in front of the coordinating daisy for a “tablescape” effect.

Christine Hakim is the one person to have accessorized for the heat and appalling humidity!
