Hairspray Premiere

On an overcast Tuesday afternoon in Westwood, CA, the beehives and the tunes of the 60's hit the streets in front of the Mann's Village Theater. Armed with their hairspay products, Sebastian Hair Stylists took their jabs at recreating those over the top hair styles while talent from the remake of John Waters' "Hairspray" strolled down the red carpet. Fans were in for a treat with Michelle Pfeiffer, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Zac Efron, Queen Latifah and others posing for the event photographers and answering questions from the media.

The Queen had long blond hair with outrageously loud yellowish lime dress that matched that crazy hair. Along for the stroll was director Adam Shankman, who took the sample hairsprays and started spraying and smelling the fumes from it. Kind of reminded me of the demented years where kids would get high by spraying aerosol cans and sniffing the fumes from a brown paper bag.

Bruce Vilanch, who played Edna Turnblad on stage, was showing off his tetas (titties) and the morbidly humorous me asks him "Are those real?" Hey I couldn't help it since it was almost a drag role. "Of course!" he said, "They better be mine" At least I got a quick laugh from all around.

Now the Disney and "High School Musical" star Vanessa Anne (she's dropped this now) Hudgens, had a sensual smile for the cameras. She definitely has grown up. As for her co-star and "Hairspray" Link Larkin, Zac Efron shows that he can move past the High School Musical Zone.

Michelle Pfeiffer came through the photo area like the wind. We didn't have enough time to catch her poses. Seemed like she didn't want to leave her hubby's, David E. Kelly, side.

All and all, this was a fun premiere to cover. Free hairspray samples, 1 track cd, temporary tattooes and more...
