Reese Witherspoon wows in red at A Wrinkle in Time premiere

Reese Witherspoon pulled out all the stops for the A Wrinkle in Time premiere on Monday night (26Feb18).

The actress led a parade of celebrities at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of Ava DuVernay’s new fantasy-adventure film, which follows a young girl on a quest to find her father.

Reese, who portrays astral traveller Mrs. Whatsit in the flick, posed up a storm in a dark red one-shouldered gown from Michael Kors and topped off her look by having her blonde hair styled into loose waves.

She was joined at the event by Storm Reid, who takes on the lead role of Meg Murry. Storm, 14, looked lovely in a blue dress with sequin-studded tiered skirt which was custom made for her by Coach.

Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling, who play astral travellers Mrs. Which and Mrs. Who, also turned heads at the event. Oprah looked elegant in a dark blue dress with gold detailing which she complemented with bedazzled gold and black glasses as well as a braided hairstyle that took two hours to complete, while Mindy, who gave birth to her daughter Katherine in December (17), wowed in a purple Greta Constantine dress with a structured neckline.

Fellow star Chris Pine sported a blue three-piece suit from Giorgio Armani, Gugu Mbatha-Raw rocked a white gown with multi-coloured drapery by Vionnet, Bellamy Young looked like a princess in a white Azzi & Osta Couture ballgown, and director Ava stood out in a fuchsia dress from Cushnie et Ochs, which she accessorised with Stuart Weitzman shoes and H. Stern jewellery.

A number of other Hollywood names turned up to show their support for the movie, with Eva Longoria putting her growing baby belly on display in an olive green dress and black jacket, and Tracee Ellis Ross making a statement in a strapless floral dress from Michael Kors.

Laura Dern, Ellen Pompeo, Tessa Thompson, Yara Shahidi, Bianca Lawson and Anthony Anderson were also in attendance.
