The highly-anticipated John Keats bio-pic "Bright Star" had its US premiere in New York Monday night.

Joining director Jane Campion were the film's stars Ben Whishaw (Keats), Abbie Cornish (Keats' love Fanny Brawne) and a scene-stealing Paul Schneider (Keats' friend Charles Armitage Brown).

Others who came to Vanity Fair-hosted bash were Sofia Coppola, Joel Coen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Harvey Keitel and Fran Drescher, whose black top went sheer under flashbulbs.

"Bright Star" opens September 16.
