Reese Witherspoon in Michael Kors at ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ premiere: fine or meh?

World premiere of Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,”

A Wrinkle In Time premiered Monday night in LA and it turned into a huge A-list event with the creme de la creme of black Hollywood. Ava DuVernay directed AWIT for Disney, becoming the first African-American woman to helm a film with a $100 million-plus budget. God, I hope this movie makes money. I was concerned about Black Panther’s box office but I felt like even if BP had a disappointing box office, it wouldn’t “flop.” I’m genuinely concerned that AWIT might flop. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen – Ava has the Disney machinery behind her, so I’m cautiously optimistic. Anyway, here are some fashion photos from the premiere, and I’m mostly concentrating on the people who are actually IN the film (but not exclusively). Reese Witherspoon wore Michael Kors, and her daughter was her date. I love the color of this Kors gown but… the design sucks, right?

OPRAH! This ensemble isn’t that flattering, but I love her glasses.

Mindy Kaling in Greta Constantine. God, she looks amazing! She just gave birth to daughter Katherine a few months ago!

Oh, hey Chris Pine. Forever Bae.

Ava DuVernay in Cushnie et Ochs. She looks amazing. Ryan Coogler and JJ Abrams came out to support her too, which is awesome.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Vionnet. She is just a beautiful woman, but the dress looks like repurposed old flags sewn together.

Tessa Thompson in Miu Miu… I get the feeling that Tessa’s personal style is sort of offbeat rather than It-Girl-fashion. I don’t like this, but I don’t hate it either.

Janelle Monáe in Wolk Morais. I love her. She can do no wrong.

    Ava’s dress is gorgeous. She looks stunning!

    • tracking says:

      I agree! She’s the standout imo, though I also like Mindy’s and Oprah’s looks.

    • Lizzie says:

      she always does. she has the best tailor in hollywood.

    • SKF says:

      I mean holy bejeezus she looks good! The colour is incredible on her and the cut highlights her banging figure. I know as a society we are obsessed with skinny but to me this figure is the ultimate. She has amazing curves and a tiny waist. The woman is amazing and her incredible looks are the least impressive part of her which really says something.

      I’m so excited for this film! This book was a favourite of mine growing up and I have faith that this team did it justice. I hope it makes gazillions.

    I’m so excited for this movie! I rarely go out to the movies but I will definitely be seeing this in theaters!
    I don’t hate any of the red carpet outfits, which is amazing lol

    • INeedANap says:

      I am so pumped too! I hope this does well, AWIT was my favorite book growing up.

      I would wear Tessa’s dress everywhere, but I love sleeves on a dress.

  3. T.Fanty says:

    A Wrinkle in Time will be fine. There are a lot of people who grew up with, and love, the book. Even if it doesn’t have a huge opening weekend, it will steadily make money, and continue to do so as it moves into DVD and streaming.

    • IB says:

      except it’s the first $100M+ film Hollywood has ever ‘given’ a black female director to make. It’s like the female ghostbusters; if the movie does not exceed expectations it won’t be considered a success (by the studios) and studios will blame the ‘risk’ of choosing a female minority director.

  4. Lindy says:

    My 8yo son and I can’t wait for this movie. I read the book to him when he was 6 and he read it again himself now that he’s a strong reader. We watched the trailer and are even more excited now. I hope it does really well.

  5. Dee says:

    Seeing full figures like Mindy’s, Oprah’s, and Ava’s looking so fab at the top of this article made the skinny women beneath them look really scrawny and strange.
    Wouldn’t it be cool if middle age, curvy, and brown became the new norm?!

  6. Mia4s says:

    The fashion is gorgeous but…uhh…well the social media embargo lifted last night to almost total silence and the review embargo is the day before release. That’s a bad sign…that’s a REALLY bad sign.

    I’m a bit disturbed that only a few critics were willing to post a reaction (all negative) and the others took the “if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all” route. You’re critics, not parents. Grading Ava on a curve is not equality; it’s patronizing. If she messed up, she messed up. Equality will be if she gets another chance to direct anyway.

    • Una says:

      I know! I am so worried about this movie. The trailers did not inspire me at all. Downsides are obviously everything you wrote but Ava never made a bad movie and Disney generally is very good at raising their directors to their higher potential. I am really excited to see Ava making a movie that looks like it belongs to theaters. Selma was a good movie but It looked very TV. I hope it all works out. Many people like these books so there is an audience, only question is if movie is good enough to make them buy tickets.

  7. minx says:

    Mindy looks wonderful, that color is beautiful on her. Always love what Janelle wears. Really, all of the women look pretty, although Oprah’s is not that flattering.

  8. Juls says:

    I love GuGu’s dress! I would choose different colors, but the design speaks to me *hides in shame*

  9. OG Cleo says:

    So are Tessa and Janelle officially a couple or is that still just rumor?

  10. HeidiM says:

    so Mindy had the baby already?

  11. Jayna says:

    It’s beautiful on her. She looks so curvy. The color of that gown is stunning

    Ava’s gown is flattering on her. I love the color on her.

    I love Oprah’s whole look. I just think the dress should have been a little shorter. The length isn’t flattering..

  12. AngieB says:

    My ten year old son just read it for school and I’m planning on taking him to see the movie. I loved the book as a kid and was super excited to hear it was being made into a movie – this movie with this cast especially.

  13. Chaine says:

    Ava’s and Jenelle’s are the best looks. Reese’s dress gives her a lovely hourglass figure but I dislike the color and the single muttonchop sleeve.

  14. Tiffany says:

    I think Wrinkle is gonna be fine as far as BO goes. It is going to have a strong few weeks before Infinity War comes out and will still make bank and stay in the top ten. Black Twitter is on this and knows the importance of making sure Ava and Oprah have a hit film.

  15. Jussie says:

    Gugu and Tessa look amazing. Janelle’s wearing colour now?!

    Has anyone heard of any early reviews or anything like that yet? I’m getting a bit worried about this film because, unless I’ve missed it (totally possible), there doesn’t seem to be much hype building for it. Disney usually leaks some stuff about how happy they are if they think they’ve got a winner, but I never saw any of that, and less than two weeks out they seem to be really strictly enforcing their embargo.

    I think the trailer made me nervous. It looked great, but the kind of great that could be hiding issues iykwim.

  16. SM says:

    Ava DuVernay looks amazing. I hate the dress Tessa is wearing but her make up is wicked. I wish I knew how to make something like that.

  17. lucy2 says:

    I’m hoping to get to see this in the theater, the trailer was good, and I love the cast.

    I love the color of Reese’s dress.

  18. PPP says:

    I love this book and I looooooove Ava Duverney, so I’ll definitely be saying this. Can I also just say how quickly baby Zendaya has replaced my head-Meg as my canon Meg? Storm Reid is who I say when I think of Meg now, and Gugu Math Raw is PERFECT as Meg’s mom– she looks like the kind of beautiful that evolves from coltish awkwardness. And Chris Pine continues to be the best Chris.

  19. LW says:

    Ava is best dressed here. That color and cut look amazing on her. Mindy looks great too. I actually love Gugu’s Dress. If you took the sleeve off of Reese’s dress and it was a sleeveless one shoulder I think it would look much bettter because I love that ruby red on her!

  20. raincoaster says:

    Reece’s dress is very Prom.

  21. Truth hurts says:

    Not here for Ava, Oprah nor Reese. Sorry looks terrible and I won’t watch.
