As the last few remaining people on Earth who haven’t seen The Avengers straggle into theaters, the summer blockbuster movie season continues moving right along! Sandwiched in between super-hero super flicks The Avengers and Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is the second big screen take on Snow White of 2012 as Twilight vixen Kristen Stewart dons the mantle of “fairest of them all” in Snow White and the Huntsman.
The film, which also stars Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and The Avengers‘ Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as the huntsman, held its world premiere earlier tonight at the Empire Cinemas in London, England. Perhaps in an attempt to reflect the darker nature of the film’s take on the famous Snow White story, both Kristen and Charlize were wearing revealing black lace gowns.
I don’t know about “fairest of them all,” but I have to confess Kristen looked damned radiant and beautiful as she traipsed the
red carpet Astro Turf in her Marchesa dress with Kara Ackerman rings and Jimmy Choo heels! She even had a little fun with her co-stars as she gave them the Johnny Cash treatment by sharing the least courteous of extended fingers:
I am really looking forward to seeing Snow White and the Huntsman, which could not be said for Julia Roberts’ Mirror, Mirror. The trailer for SWATH is fantastic, and it should be exciting to see if Kristen can carry a movie not set in the Twilight tweeniverse. (I was kind of disappointed by her portrayal of Joan Jett in The Runaways.) Plus, I’m a HUGE fan of Charlize Theron’s and I’ll see her in anything! And speaking of seeing her in anything, how about seeing her in a black nude-illusion gown? Woop! Woop!
(For our inquisitive fashion savvy readers, Charlize is wearing Christian Dior Haute Couture with Solange Azagury-Partridge jewelry.)
So will you be seeing Snow White and the Huntsman when it hits US theaters on June 1? While you ponder that question, check out the rest of the photos from the World Premiere!
