It may only be July, but — yowza! — there have been so many summer movie premieres already that it seems like the stars are out and ambling the red carpet just about every time we blink. From indie films to blockbusters, premieres of summer movies have churned out celebrities in a variety of red carpet looks — for better or, well, worse. So, in the vein of fashion expert Bruno, as skillfully played by Sacha Baron Cohen, we take a look through the red carpet highlights of the season and determine whether they're "In oder aus."
In a moment of brazenness at the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" premiere, Megan Fox shows off her much-talked-about club thumbs. Let's be real: In that white dress, no one's looking at her thumbs. Or the dress, really. In fact, they're probably just trying to get a glimpse of some side boob.
French actress Marion Cotillard models the most important accessory to a stunning dress — shaved legs — at the European premiere of "Public Enemies." Thanks, Marion, for simultaneously rocking that Vivienne Westwood dress and rebutting unfair stereotypes about the depilatory indifference of French women.
Also at the European premiere of "Public Enemies," Johnny Depp makes the gangster-style striped three-piece suit decidedly more effete with the strategic addition of a necklace. (And is that a monocle tucked inside his vest pocket, or is he just happy to see us?)
Zooey Deschanel, pictured here at the "500 Days of Summer" premiere, is simply and sweetly stunning in summery embroidery.
Who rocks multiple necklaces like nobody's business? This girl. At the Los Angeles premiere of "The Proposal," Sandra Bullock demonstrates how all dazzling red-carpet looks require a healthy dose of bling.
At the Hollywood premiere of "The Proposal," Ryan Reynolds channels Robert Redford in "The Great Gatsby" with this dapper, garden party-inspired getup. Then again, the sweater vest is a little Mr. Rogers for our taste.
At the premiere of "Public Enemies" in Los Angeles, Rosario Dawson boogie-oogie-oogies down the red carpet in a purple mirrorball-style, '70s-era disco dress. We commend you, Rosario, for carrying the spirit of the defunct, but never fully forgotten, Studio 54 wherever you go — including to a screening of a film set in the early 1930s.
Actress Rose McGowan looks like she repurposed her Cinco de Mayo outfit when she wore this ruffled jade frock to the premiere of "Terminator Salvation" in Los Angeles.
Tyrese or "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" theater usher? Well, we always kind of assumed Tyrese wanted to be an Usher…
Ciara epitomizes the Hollywood "peace and love" lifestyle with blown kisses and tie-dye leggings. Nice try, Ciara, but no one rocks leggings-as-pants quite like LiLo.
At the "Terminator Salvation" premiere in Los Angeles, Bryce Dallas Howard goes for the art direction of "Blade Runner" flanked by the plastic coating currently protecting Grandma's couch in this space-age gown.
Dapper dudes Shia LaBeouf and Josh Duhamel sport gray summer suits at the L.A. premiere of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." And considering that bromance-y handshake, it seems their matchy-matchy outfits may have been planned. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
At the "Terminator Salvation" premiere in Los Angeles, actress Moon Bloodgood's double slit reveals perhaps a bit too much of sacred thigh … and, uh, lacy black bloomers.
