Haley Bennett in Altuzarra at “The Girl on the Train” New York Premiere

Posted on October 05, 2016

Haley Bennett attends the premiere of ‘”The Girl on the Train” held at Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 in New York City.


Is Haley Bennett the girl on the train or is she the girl everyone can’t stop claiming looks exactly like Jennifer Lawrence?








We’re asking because that PR/thinkpiece hook is going to get old real quick. Granted, there’s a resemblance, and we suppose you have to mention it during the introduction just to get it out of the way, but she’s shaping up to have a career-making year all on her own. Constant comparisons to a much bigger star doesn’t strike us as particularly beneficial for her.

At any rate, Miss Girl has made a fairly big splash on the style front as well, grabbing this high-profile moment by the horns (so to speak) and making sure ahead of time that she had an array of high-profile looks to go with it. Which is basically just a lead-in to saying that we love this dress on her, even if it is a python print with sequined strawberries and cherries all over it. You heard us.

Okay, yes. It’s a bit overdesigned and trying too hard to be whimsical in that way so many designers are shooting for lately, but she’s got the looks and poise to handle much more than mere minimalism on the red carpet. In fact, she reminds us more of K Stew than J Law in that respect. She can wear a dress as discordant and overdone as this one and tone down all the noise. That’s a rare talent among celebritykind.

Having said that, her head styling sitch is not on point.
