Form Renderwith doesn't show form or any styling

I am trying to render a form with template with the following:

function FacebookForm($fbFields) {

      $actions = new FieldSet(
         new FormAction('doFaceBookForm', 'Register')

      $memberfields = singleton('XEUser')->getMemberFormFields();

      $fields = new FieldSet();
      $reqFields = array();
      foreach($fbFields as $key => $value){
            case 'Gender':
               $reqFields[] = 'Gender';
            case 'DateOfBirth':
               $reqFields[] = 'DateOfBirth';
      $validator = new RequiredFields($reqFields);

      $form = new Form($this, 'FaceBookForm', $fields, $actions,$validator);
      return $form->renderWith(array('FacebookController','Page'));
      //return $form;


When I just

return $form

my form appears but in the default so I created a new template and added

return $form->renderWith(array('FacebookController','Page'));

. When I do this, I get everything that should be in the page but with no styles being applied at all and the form doesn't even appear. Here is my FacebookController template:

<div id="left">
   <h2>Thankyou for signing up with your Facebook account</h2>
   <p>The following details could not be obtained from your Facebook account, please enter them now.</p>

<div id="right">


anyone shed any light on this?
