Isla Fisher Is Priceless at ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ NYC Premiere
Isla Fisher and the rest of the cast were front and center and fashionable at the New York City premiere of Confessions of a Shopaholic at the Ziegfeld Theater last night.
Temperatures in New York dropped to 11 degrees last night, yet most of the actresses attending the premiere (including Fisher, Leslie Bibb, Claire Danes and Krysten Ritter) all wore fairly non-winter dresses on the red carpet. Which was OUTSIDE of the theater. Brrrr!
The Shopaholic herself wore a sage mini-dress by designer Matthew Williamson.
At least Miss America Katie Stam wore a trenchcoat with her tiara! Smart girl.
Also in attendance was Shopaholic’s male lead Hugh Dancy (Danes’ boyfriend in real life), John Goodman and former Just Shoot Me star Wendie Malick.
In the flick, recent Allure coverbody Fisher plays a literal shopaholic who tries to contend with her debt (how timely) by taking a job at a high-finance magazine. Hilarity ensues, as Fisher’s character has no idea how to manage money obviously.
Dancy’s presence as Fisher’s charming suitor sweetens the deal. He’s no Sacha Baron Cohen (Isla’s real-life fiancé and father of daughter Olive, 1) but he’ll do. There was no sign of the Borat actor at the premiere, but who knows if he was there or not? The guy’s been known to go undercover, after all.
The Australian Fisher told Canada.com that a key scene in the movie, in which her character tries to seduce Dancy via fan dance, was a dream of hers.
“It’s always been a comic dream of mine to attempt to seduce a man doing a dance that’s actually repulsive,” Isla, 32, says.
A dream realized!
