For a movie so filled with colorful characters, full-skirted dresses and over-the-top hair, you’d expect the red carpet at the Hairspray premiere to look like a rainbow, wouldn’t you? Chalk it up to N.Y.C.’s influence, but the Big Apple premiere saw the night’s leading ladies looking chic in sleek little black dresses. Amanda Bynes showed off her tan in a Pollini lurex minidress, while co-star Michelle Pfeiffer put the focus on her dazzling Cartier diamonds in an Armani strapless dress. And Katie Holmes, fresh off her trip to Germany, stole the show in a sexy sheath with a cut-out back. Tell us: Whose little black dress do you like best?

I really did not expect to be saying this any time soon, but I like Katie’s best! She looks cute and young.

I love this look. It’s so classy and works for any event. I think Mihcelle looks good and Katie looks amazing and gorgeous!! Amanda looks great in the dress but I’m not loving her hair. It shoudl be pulled back and out of her face and i think darker was better!!!! But props to all of em cuz they all looks great!!!!!!!

jojo on

but the only black dress that rocked
was when vanessa hudgens wore it la
she brought life to this endless promoting


All look great, but I prefer Katie’s long hair.

Katy on

I agree partly…Katie does look good but Amanda looks extraordinary! This is a movie about young kids having fun and she definitely dressed for it! Not everyone, even Katie, could pull off such a young, fun, hot look like Amanda’s!

Betty on

I love Katie’s hair short – she doesn’t look sophisticated. Love her dress as well.
