The stars of Begin Again (formerly called Can a Song Save Your Life?) were on hand at the movie’s closing night screening at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival held at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City on April 26.
Spotted at the event were Keira Knightley, Hailee Steinfeld, and Adam Levine, who attended with his fiancée, Behati Prinsloo. Both Keira and Adam took new roles in the said musical/romantic comedy/drama movie — it was Adam’s movie acting debut, while it was Keira’s first time to sing in a film.
1. Keira Knightley
Although new to musical films, Keira Knightley could be considered a veteran when it comes to red carpet styling. The actress has an eclectic taste in fashion. She’s had some misses, but she has scored a lot of hits, too.

We can’t decide if Keira’s ensemble at the Begin Again premiere was a miss or a hit. We all know she’s a Chanel girl, and she picked a dress from the fashion house’s latest collection.
The 29-year-old did turn heads in this outfit, but it was either because she was simply glamorous in it or because the optical-illusion dress was just hard to miss. The design draws attention despite its rather muted color. The top part features embroideries, shimmering sequins and beads, and scalloped edges, while the skirt has layers of frayed organza fabric.
Share with us your thoughts about this recent look from Keira. Was her dress too heavy and unflattering for her thin frame?

Making Keira Knightley’s entire outfit seem a tad heavier were those black pumps! They were the “Ari” pumps by Jimmy Choo, an updated version of the typical black leather pointy pumps. They feature cutout detail at the toe line and skinny heels that measure about 4.3 inches for a boost in height.

2. Hailee Steinfeld
Although she’s only 17, Hailee Steinfeld has already proven how stylish she can be. She knows how to look chic without dressing inappropriately for her age.

Hailee, who plays the estranged daughter of Mark Ruffalo’s character in the movie, showed up at the event in a fun and playful outfit. She brought color to the black carpet in a ’60s-inspired Valentino leather dress that features a pop art design in pink, orange, black, and white. It has a deep-V neckline, but Hailee kept it modest with a black bandeau. Her kohl-rimmed eyes and long straightened hair added sophistication to her young and fresh look!

Hailee rounded out her ensemble with black d’Orsay heels by Balenciaga, which are made of suede and mesh and have 3.5 inch heels. They also feature pointed toes and asymmetrical vamps with ankle straps.

3. Behati Prinsloo
Adam Levine was definitely dapper in a blue suit with a white shirt. However, his future wife, Behati Prinsloo, stole the spotlight. The Victoria’s Secret Angel complemented her partner in a stunning navy blue dress. She styled her hair in waves and wore flawless makeup.

Behati’s sandals are very simple, featuring thin black ankle straps and blue front straps. Can you ID her heels?
