Eat Pray Love Movie Premiere

{images here}
Last night Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem attended the "Eat Pray Love" movie premiere in New York City.  Julia sported some short shorts on the red carpet along with some amazing heels and beautiful jewelry. I think she looks simple, classy, and beautiful in this outfit.  What do you think of her outfit?

I also attended the advance screening of this movie last night in Boston and overall I found the movie inspiring and I enjoyed it.  In most cases a movie never really never lives up to the detailed character development you get by reading the book.  And this movie is no exception. And there are definitely parts of the movie that seem contrived and a bit self indulgent. However, if you focus on positive aspects of this movie and don't go into it with really high expectations then you will enjoy  it.  So basically, if you appreciate beautiful cinematography and love Julia Roberts then this movie is for you.  Also, if you have not read the book yet then you will probably enjoy the movie more than those of us who have read the book.

I won advance screening tickets too, but I ended up skipping it which I was a little bummed about. They said to get their an hour earlier though, and I didn't feel like doing that. I haven't read the book yet, would you said watch the movie and then read the book? Or just see the movie?

Again, I cannot wait to see this movie! We were thinking of having another blogger meetup in the Boston area in Sept/Oct, if you are interested email with ideas for dates/places to go :)

i love julia's new hair color! so pretty. not that excited about her outfit choice though...
i totally pictured javier bardem while reading the book and think he was a perfect cast for the role of her love interest! i still want to see the film even though i will probably feel so so about it!

Julia is swoon-worthy in this ensemble! Gah! She looks gorgeous at any age!

Question...I haven't read the book. What do you think I should do first - read the book or see the movie? I'm thinking the former; but I thought I'd ask just in case. :)

Stacey said...

She looks awesome! Thanks for the insight about the movie. I am still going to get the book. I love a good read!

Amy said...

i love her outfit. good to know about the movie.. i already found the book to be very self indulgent so that does not surprise me. but i will go into it just like i went into SATC2.. not having high expectations and just for the scenery, etc.. and hopefully i will like it!

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

I think her outfit is adorable on her. Actually I would love it myself. :)

Good to know about the movie...I am reading the book right now and plan to watch it as soon as I am finished but maybe now I don't have to.

MelissaNibbles said...

I'll see this movie when it comes out on dvd. I'm not going to pay $16 to see it.

I think Julia's hair and makeup look great, but the outfit is kinda frumpy.

her shoes are gorgeous!

Valerie said...

I agree, she looks gorgeous here! Love her simple outfit and her hair is so pretty. Thanks for the recap on the movie! I definitely want to see it and that's what I was expecting. Hoping to see it soon.

coolkids said...

Love her hair and bracelet. The outfit doesn't wow me. I didn't read the book. I am excited to see the movie!

bollywoodstylediaries said...

Love her shoes, not so much in love with her outfit..I prefer books to movies and rarely watch screen adaptions since they spoil the book for me..However, since its Julia I am very tempted:-) also, there is James Franco, droool:-)

Cat said...

Julia Roberts is so lovely...can I have her hair, please :) Can't wait to see this movie (and read the book...it is waiting for me on my bookshelf right now) xo Cat

Torrie said...

Love her outfit and am always amazed that she (nor her body) never seems to age.

I totally get what you're saying about movies vs. books and looking at the movie's positive aspects.

Will do!

D e g a i n e said...

I am really not a fan of Julia Roberts after reading and watching her endless interviews where she brags on and on about her perfect self, even at one point saying "I see people pregnant with one child and I think what's the point" (because she had twins) so it really killed this movie for me.

I like her outfit, but I don't think black is her best color. She looks great though! Especially love her bracelets.

this free bird said...

thx for sharing. was totally thinking of you last night. i think those bracelets could be alex and ani...not 100% but sure look like it.

oh julia. she always seems on the edge of ripping someone a new butthole.

Indie.Tea said...

She looks amazing...her outfit is elegant...all black, large blazer, but still fun, with the shorts and bracelets

Jess said...

Books are always better than movies, aren't they?! But, still looking forward to seeing the movie anyway. Julia is just beautiful as always!

Krystal said...

I think your review is about what I was expecting! But I do love cinematography and plus if I read a book and there is a movie out I have to go see it. hope you had fun!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Glad you enjoyed it- I loved the book. I love all her bangles she's wearing at the premiere.

Melissa said...

Oh my, Julia is such a class act!

Lisa Griffin said...

Elle said...

I'm really hesitant to see the movie because I've read the book.. but I do think Julia looks great here - vibrant and happy with out the over-the-top glam that usually presents itself at a premier. Very classy!

style-haus said...

she looks fantastic! she's publicly said she believes in aging gracefully and isn't into botox etc. whatever her beauty regimen may be, it's definitely working for her! love this black ensemble and the shorts are a wonderful alternative for red carpet!

New follower here! :)

Julia Roberts always looks so pretty. I love all of her movies; I'm sure I'll love this one.

You know what's funny? The other day my best friend pointed out what a jerk she was on 'My Best Friend's Wedding' -- one of my all time favorite movies. At first I was like, "NO! NOT JULIA!" But, she WAS a homewrecker! LOL!

Great post!

Anna Katrina said...

It's totally Julia and she is pulling off what a person with 9 ft legs should do! Her make-up is always there, but not there and I love that :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Cant wait to see it:)
