A red carpet premiere for Bachelorette was held in Los Angeles last night, and Isla and all her co-stars attended! Isla looked fabulous in a very pretty little red lace dress by Reem Acra, with intricate detailing, a belt round the waist, and a very low-cut neckline! Isla let the dress do the talking and kept everything else simple, with nude satin Sergio Rossi heels, minimum accessories and low-key make-up. This is a killer look on Isla, don’t you think? I think it balances perfectly between being sexy and elegant. The girls all looked to be having a great time on the red carpet – I particularly love the pics of Isla with Kirsten and Rebel!
The first batch of HQ photos have been added to the Gallery for your viewing pleasure, and you can scroll on down this post for a couple of articles about the event which include quotes from Isla. There are also a few videos, the best of which is from Access Hollywood at the very bottom which features interviews with Isla and the cast. There are lots more photos to come from this premiere, so keep checking back over the weekend!
It’s always great to see Isla at a big premiere – especially when it’s for one of her movies – so enjoy the pics 🙂

‘Bachelorette’ stars call film raunchy, good fun at premiere
In the oh-so-naughty “Bachelorette,” old friends gather for a wedding, and they vow to have fun.
“Certain people, it’s too much for them. But it’s a raunchy girls’ comedy. You don’t see many of those, like, this raunchy,” said Kirsten Dunst.
But Isla Fisher says don’t let the raciness scare you away.
“These are horrible girls doing horrible things. You can’t ask yourself why. You just got to commit to it and enjoy it and just try to make it as funny as you can,” she said.
And other stars of the film are simply not sorry for the movie’s unabashed fun.
“You’re not going to hear one apology from me. It’s pretty nasty, this movie, and I love every second of it,” said Lizzy Caplan.
If you don’t want to wait to see it in theatres next month, “Bachelorette” is available now on demand.
“I think it’s a really good move for a filmmaker like me who’s writing something that is very raunchy, that’s very dark, that’s outside the box so it’s not necessarily going to have a big huge marketing campaign or anything like that,” said director Lesyle Headland.
The men of “Bachelorette” also have their opinions on the movie and what they do in it!
“There’s a moment in this movie where I just, I really can’t watch what I — what I did on set, not proud of it,” said James Marsden.
“Bachelorette” hits theaters September 7.
‘Bachelorette’ Cast, Director Celebrate Raunchy Female Comedy at Hollywood Premiere
Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson star in Leslye Headland’s directorial debut about a group of girlfriends who try to survive a wild wedding weekend.
The premiere party for Bachelorette, the raunchy new dark comedy starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson, was a celebration for the strong female cast, who were very aware of the growing presence of female comedy in what used to be a male-dominated genre.
The film was written and directed by Leslye Headland, a playwright who was once an assistant to The Weinstein Co. The comedy, following a group of friends (Dunst, Fisher, Caplan) from high school who reunite for their friend’s wedding (Wilson), is an adaptation of Headland’s off-Broadway play.
At the event held in Hollywood on Thursday, Aug. 23, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the stars to talk about the bawdy film, and the future of women in comedy.
Dunst plays Regen, the uptight, control freak maid of honor, who tries to keep her drug-friendly friends in order when things go awry.
“I wanted to do a comedy after Melancholia,” Dunst tells THR about her decision to join the film. “I just was so thirsty for that, and I love the fact that it was all women, and I knew we would have the best time.”
Dunst, who starred in Lars von Trier’s 2011 end-of-the-world drama, says she formed new friendships with Caplan and Fisher while working on Bachelorette.
Dunst also commented on the gains that have been made in female comedy in recent years, naming talents like Kristen Wiig and Tina Fey for their work writing for comedy.
“I think mostly female writers are writing the funny parts for women,” she adds.
Fisher, who plays Katie, a ditzy bridesmaid who likes to spend time using drugs and getting drunk, told THR that the role appealed to her because it was a far leap from her own life as a mother.
“I don’t really relate to Katie, and I think that’s what was such a challenge and so rewarding about inhabiting the emotional landscape of somebody whose lifestyle and personality traits are very different than my own,” she said.
Fisher’s husband, The Dictator star Sacha Baron Cohen, also attended the premiere party in Hollywood.
Both Fisher and Dunst praised Headland’s work on her directorial debut. Headland called the entire experience “unbelievable from start to finish.”
“I just feel like everyone sort of fell in love with this script and this movie,” she said. “I would come into a room and meet new people who were working on the movie, and all of them had this sort of crazed smile that I’d had for four years.”
Headland’s film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was acquired by new Weinstein Co. shingle, RADiUS. It debuted on iTunes before its theatrical release on September 7, and became the first pre-theatrical release to top the iTunes Top Movies chart.
As for women writers and directors, Headland says that now – the post-Sex and the City era – is the best it’s been for female-driven comedy. She names Rashida Jones (who co-wrote Celeste and Jesse Forever), Ruby Sparks writer Zoe Kazan and HBO’s Girls’ creator Lena Dunham among the many women who have made their mark just this year alone.
“These are all women who are finding what’s specifically funny about being a woman, and really nailing that,” says Headland. “I think it says a lot about the comedy world that that’s been embraced and that women are encouraged and applauded for doing that.”
Bachelorette opens in theaters on September 7.
10 Sexy Lace Dresses Inspired By Isla Fisher (All Under $100!)
If I were going to write a love song to Isla Fisher (ya know, why not??) it might go something like this: “Oh Isla, your hair so red, your clothes so cool, you make me laugh so hard I nearly cry, and you make all the menfolk drool.” This is why I’m not a musician, but you get the idea. She’s the best. And here she is at the Bachelorette premiere proving my point.
I mean, hellooo, nurse, right? She looks super-hot, but I still want to be best friends with her. She’s one of the rare guy-hot/girl-hot combo celebs (others include Sofia Vergara, and Leslie Mann) and she looks killer in her frock. Lace has been everywhere for a few seasons (shop my lace accessory picks here!) and I love the look as a body-con dress.
Pairing something so overtly sexy with nude heels, and minimal accessories keeps it from veering too far into “boudoir” territory. Here are my top lace dress picks (all under $100!) and the accessories I’d wear them with.

On Thursday night, Isla Fisher, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kirsten Dunst, Garrett Hedlund, Lizzy Caplan, Adam Scott, Busy Phillips, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and James Marsden were among the celebrities who celebrated the Premiere Of RADiUS-TWC’s “Bachelorette” premiere after-party sponsored by Purity Vodka.
At the after party where Purity Vodka cocktails were served, Isla Fisher, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Lizzy Caplan all stayed tipsy with the Purity “Last Fling Before the Ring” signature cocktail. (recipe below).
Sacha Baron Cohen entered the after-party incognito with a basecall cap, checkered shirt, and sport coat. He was mingling with guests and keeping a very low profile but was seen munching on some Fatburger fries.
