As we said in our earlier posts, the Harmony Korine’s written & directed “Spring Breakers” made a big splash at the Venice Film Festival earlier this evening (Wednesday, September 5) as the film’s sexy cast hit the red carpet premiere in full-on Oscar-esque glamour. We were curious what these girls would wear after looking great earlier in the day at the photocall.

Hollywood Reporter reviewed the film, so here’s an excerpt:

Even by the elastic measure of James Franco’s unpredictable career, the actor gives one of his more bizarre performances in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. Playing a Florida white-trash gangsta with beaded cornrows and a gleaming mouthful of metal, he’s a cross between Bo Derek in 10 and Richard Kiel in Moonraker. At one point he sits poolside at a cheesy white grand piano and sings a Britney Spears ballad while three co-eds in DTF pants and pink ski masks do an impromptu dance routine with AK-47s.

Sounds good? Well, like the film as a whole, Franco’s borderline parodistic performance is interesting only up to a point. It may be one of Korine’s more conventional narratives, but this is basically a porn-pulp snort of derision at the American Dream and the youthful search for self, packaged as Beach Blanket Bingo on acid. It has hypnotic visual style and a dense, driving soundscape. But it’s also too monotonous and thematically empty to be seriously provocative.

More than by Franco, the film’s profile will be boosted by the presence of former Disney Channel cuties Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens among all the bong-hitting, boozing, coke-snorting, breast-baring, grinding bodies. “Poetry in motion” is how Franco’s drug-dealing rapper Alien describes the crowd at a beach beer blast. “Bikinis and big booties, y’all. That’s what life is about.” [Continue reading...]

Selena is drop dead gorgeous here. She really looks best in dresses and makeup and high heels. Vanessa looks like she would be much better in bed. She also looks much better in a bikini than does Sel.

moe ur demographic HATES you. but guess what? they need you even more. you're like a daddy that has missed another football game you promised to attend. i find it so funny. your children want you to be a better father. but like a child they can't go away... no sir. they're just hanging around sulking in the corner mad as hell. because they need you.

weird analogies aside. what is with these people!!!??? they don't like you or your site but cannot fathom just finding something else to do. its like crack or something. they wanna get off it but they can't help but answer the call of addiction. lmao.

vanessa let me down. the most awesome legs remain hidden (once again) at yet another event. whats going on??? they're becoming as illusive as the location of shangri la. she's still the hottest there. that isn't even debatable to me.

selena does look young and probably will for a long time to come. but she is out shining them other two broads in this set by a fair distance. sad but its so true...

Selena has the nicest dress, it would look great on an adult

Ashley has such gorgeous eyes, but they look terrible with that smokey eye look. Good call on the blue dress, but the eye make up looks bad. She gets my vote for best dressed.
