It looks like every A-lister was there.

Oprah, Reese, Tracee… one red carpet looked exactly like the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week, with a who’s who of Tinseltown in attendance.

The film that attracted such a star-studded guest list was A Wrinkle in Time, the Disney adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 fantasy adventure novel.

Directed by Ava DuVernay and featuring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Chris Pine (to name just a few), the film focuses on one girl’s intergalactic quest, supported by three astral travellers.


However the real stars are the premiere looks, in our eyes, with one of our favourite ensembles provided by a Lebanese designer.

Actress Rowan Blanchard, who plays Veronica in the fantasy flick, donned a seriously sparkly number by Elie Saab for the occasion, one which effortlessly blended glamour with an understated elegance.

The high-octane Pre-Fall 2018 gown featured a sheer skirt and sequin-dripped bodice, with full sleeves and a demure bow—and it’s easy to see how it scored the star a place on many a best-dressed list.

Blanchard’s co-star Bellamy Young also turned to the Middle East for her outfit, sporting an ethereal strapless gown from Lebanese label Azzi & Osta.

The Spring/Summer 18 piece echoed the film’s theme with its celestial embroidery, while the romantic ruffles added a voluminous femininity.

Here’s the best of the rest from the night’s red (well, blue) carpet…
