Starlets Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev were anything but red-carpet Wallflowers at the premiere of their upcoming lit adaptation, held last night at Hollywood’s Arclight Cinerama Dome. The lovely ladies were joined at the fete by cast mates Mae Whitman, Ezra Miller, Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh and Logan Lerman in spirit (and in cardboard) to celebrate the coming-of-age tale, which hits theaters in limited release September 21.
Emma (who plays Sam in the film) opted for a sleek look, flaunting a tiered, cream-colored Giorgio Armani halter dress with scattered beading detail. Sans accessories, the actress kept her look simple with a slicked back ’do and red lips. Co-star Nina (who plays Candace) was red hot in one of her favorite hues (coincidence that it’s the color of blood?!), looking fierce in a scarlet Reem Acra dress with lace detail.
Also on hand at the “Perks of Being a Wallflower” premiere? A pair of the co-stars co-stars! Nina met up with her “Vampire Diaries” cohort Kayla Ewell on the red carpet, posing for an adorbs pic. And it didn’t take magic to conjure up one of Emma’s “Harry Potter” co-stars: Bonnie Wright was a pretty presence at last night’s premiere too.
With its young-Hollywood-heavy cast, it’s no surprise the “Perks” premiere drew a slew of 20-something stars, including a bevy of ABC Family actors. Shailene Woodley, Tyler Blackburn and Lindsey Shaw (looking oh-so sophisticated!) were among the networks’ stars to get in on the premiere perks.
