When you’re promoting a movie as over-saturated as Spring Breakers, you pretty much have license to break out your brightest colors and most obnoxious prints on the red carpet. At SXSW this weekend, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine hit the town for photo ops and interviews along with co-star James Franco and director Harmony Korine. Vanessa Hudgens was sick in bed, sadly, and one of the girls looked like she wandered in from another event entirely.
Korine opted for a one-shouldered Preen dress with a hallucinatory print — a little garish for our tastes, but at least she went with the theme. Gomez looked ready for Florida in a Dolce and Gabbana bustier crop top and bright orange pencil skirt. Between this and her Harper’s Bazaar cover, it’s clear the girl has found a favorite designer.
But while those two looks had us amped up for a sunny beach vacation, Ashley Benson chose a more subdued — and, let’s face it, pretty sad — black maxi dress. We never thought we’d say this, but someone get this girl some neon!
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
