Haley Bennett wore a bonkers custom Elena Dawson to the Cyrano premiere

The big London premiere for Cyrano was held last night in London. In case you haven’t seen the trailer, I’m including it below. It’s directed by Joe Wright, who loves a costume drama with corseted heroines. It’s looks like a mostly-straight adaption of Cyrano de Bergerac, the popular 19th century play about a dude with a huge nose and a beautiful soul who tries to help a young, good-looking guy (Christian) win the heart of Roxane, the woman both Cyrano and Christian love. In this latest adaptation, they chose (good-looking) Peter Dinklage as Cyrano, Haley Bennett as Roxane and Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Christian.

I wanted to cover the premiere because I love Haley’s dress and how bonkers it is. I like Haley a lot as an actress, and I’ve always wanted her to have a bigger career. Sometimes, I wonder if the fact that she looks like Jennifer Lawrence’s shorter sister has hampered her career. But Haley is fun and talented and I love that she went all-out with this crazy dress. The dress is a custom piece from Elena Dawson. It’s perfect.

I kind of want to watch Roxane, the Steve Martin movie again. I haven’t seen that since I was a kid. There are so many Cyrano variations, but this might be the first time they’ve cast Cyrano as a little person. It’s going to be tough because Peter is actually VERY attractive.
