We think it’s fair to say that Hayden Panettiere looked rather stunning when she turned up to the premiere of her new film I Love You Beth Cooper in New York yesterday, wearing an eye-catching white asymmetric mini dress.

Hayden’s new movie is a teen comedy in the vein of such classics as The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller (or so Hayden claims), and unsurprisingly the Heroes star is hoping it will be a huge success.

Mainly because of the money, but also because she’s hoping the film will help people see she’s a serious actress. She recently said:

“The thing is, I love acting. It’s something I respect. It’s something that makes me want to be respected for what I do. I’m working toward being a respected actress. Meryl Streep is it for me.”

Well she’s won two Oscars love, so you might have a bit of catching up to do yet…
