What happens after that “happy dagger” finds its rusty sheath in the doomed guts of one Juliet Capulet? Everyone into the hot tub, that’s what! Last night marked the big premiere of “Romeo and Juliet,” starring Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as the film’s titular teenage lovers—and after a well-received screening of Shakespeare’s tale of romantic drama, deaths and double suicide, the real fun started in earnest with everyone looking lovely (and very much alive).
The afterparty was a who’s who of young Hollywood A-listers: Hailee and Douglas, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ed Westwick. There was even a surprise appearance by Taylor Swift, who showed up in a cream-colored floral frock and cozied up to Hailee for a glamorous selfie.
Meanwhile, Hailee was the star of the premiere and the party in an off-the-shoulder dress that was pure classic Juliet from the bodice up, but then transitioned into a chic, sleek modern silhouette with geometric accents.
What do you think of the happy ending to last night’s “Romeo and Juliet” premiere?
