Emmy Rossum at the Beautiful Creatures premiere: amazing or too formal?

These are photos of the lovely Emmy Rossum at the premiere of Beautiful Creatures, which is out next week. It’s a “supernatural love story” based on a young adult novel, and the plot sounds straight out of the CW. There are rings involved that turn color and change the wearer’s fate when they reach a certain age, and the female supernatural protagonist is struggling with young forbidden love before she learns what will happen to her. Anyway it will probably be a huge hit considering the subject matter, and Emmy is in it as one of the supernatural witches, or “casters.” It also stars Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson and Viola Davis. (The young couple are new actors I haven’t heard of before, Alice Englert and Alden Ehrenreich.)

Anyway Emmy wore this kind of formal cross-bodice black and white Andrew Gn gown which wouldn’t look out of place at the Academy Awards. It was a little stiff for a premiere, especially with her sophisticated hair and makeup, but it’s still amazing. She looks so well put together and just beautiful. I also like how she poses like she’s happy to be there but isn’t haughty about it. She’s not full of herself, and it shows.

I’m a huge fan of Emmy’s show “Shameless” on Showtime, having been turned on to it by an article on Pajiba. (I was going to take Kaiser’s lead and unsubscribe from Showtime after Homeland wrapped, but then Shameless pulled me back in.) Emmy plays the lead deftly, her character is a young woman who has been caring for her brothers and sisters after her mom left the family in the care of her alcoholic dad. (William H. Macy plays the dad, he’s awesome too, and also Joan Cusack is in it!) I was thrilled to learn, from last week’s US Weekly, that Emmy is currently dating her co-star, Tyler Jacob Moore. He plays Tony the cop on Shameless, and I won’t give more information or spoilers because I want you to check it out if you’re inclined. The show is so worth it.

Also, here’s Beautiful Creatures’ main star, Alice Englert, in Elie Saab. She’s 18. I thought this dress was way too frou-frou, but they like it over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards.

    feels very ‘going-for-glamour-but-missed-the-mark’ bridesmaid-y too me. womp. :-(

    Emmy’s gorgeous and I like the dress (but yeah, too formal for this), but I’m not a fan of the muddy makeup. It reminds me of the 90s, when everyone was wearing brown lipstick and contouring their cheeks.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      +1 The makeup is too much! Stick to a strong eye or strong lip, not both. She’s so gorge, she doesn’t need all that anyway, it’s just distracting from her natural beauty.

      Also, the new girl Alice looks like KStew and JLaw put together. Gee, I wonder how she got cast in a tween novel movie?

  3. Samigirl says:

    I think she’s just stunning. Her lip color is a smidgen too dark for my tastes, but it doesn’t deflect from her beauty.

  4. Riana says:

    Emmy looks amazing, I like when actresses look genuinely happy to be at events. I don’t care for the other actress’ dress.

  5. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    I love her as Fiona & Shameless is one of the best shows on tv now.

    ALL of the young actors are outstanding especially Jeremy Allan White.

    Tony the Cop has really disappeared since Season 1 I think because he is getting lots of other work.

    But I’m SAD she is not dating Justin Chatwin! He is so cute they have great chemistry together.

  6. BooBooLaRue says:

    I remember that makeup! It instantly aged everyone — she looks so frumpy here!

  7. taxi says:

    Brighter/lighter blush & lipstick would be much better. I like the dress on her & her hairdo is chic.
    She’s very talented. “Phantom of the Opera”.

  8. Aiobhan says:

    I like the dress Alice is wearing but it overwhelms her and the shoes are awful.

    Emmy looks good for wearing a black and white dress. I think it is perfect for a movie red carpet.

  9. La Calabaza says:

    They both look very pretty, witchy like!

  10. Tig says:

    Emily Rossum is just gorgeous- liked the dress, and agree her makeup is a bit dark on her.

    Still on the fence about seeing this movie- the book wasn’t all that great.

    The young lead is attractive, and at least isn’t going for the “18 going on 40″ look with her hair and makeup. Her dress is a bit much for her.

  11. poppy says:

    doesn’t matching blush and eye shadow sort of make you look bruised? there has been a lot of that lately. not good.
    she’s gorgeous but the monochrome make up is not.
    the dress, while it fits her well is awful. in the rear view it looks like some of the little straps are having issues, unless those extra bits are supposed to be there.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      Her blush looks like LLohan’s when Shawn Holley was still repping her.

      Her lips make her gums look the same tint. That makes me think she just drank some blueberry juice.

      Overall the make-up and dress are too formal and it ages her 20 years. The lead in the movie is wearing such a whimsical dress, why did she go so sleek?

  12. MJ says:

    I’ve only seen Alden Ehrenreich in that movie Tetro, which starred Vincent Gallo and was directed by Francis Ford Coppola. He was really good in it and he is hot.

  13. Anne says:

    Emmy is very pretty. I like that she’s a natural beauty and she looks her age. She’s great on Shameless.

  14. j.eyre says:

    I almost adore that dress. I love everything about it except the separate piece, asymmetrical seamed mermaid bottom. Even if it had been just a mermaid with the same piece of fabric it would have been lovely.

    A bit formal, though.

    I actually love Alice Englert’s dress- and I think it’s appropriate- she’s the star of the film. And while I like Emmy’s dress I think it’s too much for the premiere

    Emily looks gorgeous. Maybe she is thinking “this is the only premiere I’m going to so I’m going to make it really count.”
