Amanda Seyfried: Red Carpet Flash

Head-to-toe black is usually nothing to write home about, but Amanda Seyfried made it interesting at the premiere of her latest flick “Letters to Juliet,” held Sunday as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. Veering from the tried-and-true cocktail-dress-and-heels formula, the actress walked the step-and-repeat in a pair of up-to-there shorts and a blazer, both from Viktor & Rolf’s 2009 pre-fall collection. (The bejeweled lapel on the actress’ blazer helped her shorts seem less day camp and more nighttime.)

“We love a bit of masculine tuxedo jacket on a girl,” said Rolf Snoeren. “Amanda looks radical chic, just the way we like it.”

Seyfried has been on a daring streak with her outfits of late: Last week, she set the blogosphere abuzz by arriving at a Los Angeles event with her Bodyamr frock on backwards, zipper first. And back in February at the opening of her film “Dear John,” she gave new meaning to the term “plunging neckline” with a Giorgio Armani number that barely covered her navel.
