Frankenweenie Premiere! The Stars Come Out for Tim Burton (Photos)

The stars where dressed in their finest black and white ensembles to honor the first ever 3D black & white stop-motion feature, brought to us by the one and only Tim Burton. The beloved filmmaker, his cast, his friends and me (yes, I was there!) came out to see Burton’s newest film – Frankenweenie.

The theme was black and white, from the fashions, to the pure white carpet in loo of red, to of course the film itself. The actors who voiced the quirky characters were in attendance from Martin Short to Catherine O’Hara to a stunning Winona Ryder to legendary scream queen Elvira (in full costume).

After the film which was a gorgeous, grand and very Burton-esque expansion of his original short, the stars headed over to an exclusive after party where franks were served in various incarnations from pigs in a blanket to corn dogs. Tim Burton held court, Elvira generously posed for photos and my feet were killing me from wearing 5-inch-heels all night.

Check out how the stars came to honor Tim Burton and his newest film right here:

    Tim Burton was the man of the hour! During the walk down the red carpet, in the lobby and especially at the after party, Burton was all smiles being surrounded by friends, family and fans.

    Kendra Wilkinson totally glowed, looking gorgeous (especially in person). It was super cute watching Hank Baskett hold on tight to Hank Jr. and conversing with him and keeping him busy while mommy worked the "white" carpet.

    Jennie Garth and her family apparently didn't get the memo about the black and white dress code with her and her girls showing up in all colors of the rainbow.
