MoMA Film Benefit Honoring Tim Burton

I don't "get" the dark-teenage-goth-angst films of Tim Burton. But I suppose there are those who do, since he was honored at a benefit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

In attendance were his freaky-haired ladyfriend, Helena Bonham Carter. She's gotten more beautiful as she's gotten older, but also more weird, and usually dresses in a manner more befitting to poor put-upon Cinderella or the Wicked Witch of the West. By comparison, her relatively ordinary-looking black gown (albeit coupled with chunky boots) is, well, more normal. It doesn't seem to fit her very well, but one can't expect miracles. (I can't imagine she can get a brush through her hair.)

Veronica Webb picks a wedgie.

Ashley and Mary-Kate showed up, looking slightly less sad than usual. And also kind of...good.

Hollywood's new darling, Gaboury Sidibe was there as well, in a rather stunning iridescent gown.

Brooke Shields! You look so ordinary...are you sure you're in the right place?
