PICTURES: Christina Hendricks Steals the Show at Ginger and Rosa AFI Festival Screening08 November 2012
Forget their billing as co-stars, there's only one star in town when Christina Hendricks makes an appearance on the red carpet, and Elle Fanning and Alice Englebert had to take a back seat to the 37 year-old as she grabbed the lion's share of the spotlight at a screening of Ginger & Rosa yesterday at the AFI FIlm Festival (November 7). Hendricks wore a sequined low-cut figure-hugging top that showed off her cleavage, matching it with an also-sequined headpiece.
Fanning and Englert looked the part too, it has to be said, though they were in slightly less instantly-grabbing outfits, the former opting for a green and white striped gown, the latter going for a checked red and white affair. Indeed, this is the first time in anything related to Ginger & Rosa that Fanning has received anything less than the optimum attention, her performance largely regarded the highlight in a film that's had mixed reviews (we were certainly cautious in our praise of it). Directed by Sally Potter, the film is set during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 and features a cast that also includes Annette Bening, Timothy Spall and Alexander Nivola.
