One of the best parts of a movie premiering — besides the movie we’ve been waiting over a year to see — is the red carpet fashion. Whether you and your family dress up too at home or like to judge the dresses from the comfort of your couch, you can’t deny that anything to do with the red carpet is fascinating. And with the premiere of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story premiere finally here, we can’t turn our eyes away.
When we heard they were remaking West Side Story, we couldn’t help but dance ourselves. We loved the 1961 version, starring Natalie Wood and Rita Moreno, and we’re sure to fall in love with the story all over again with this remake. Rita Moreno and many others from the original have come back for the remake — along with many fresh faces like Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler as the star-crossed lovers at the story’s heart.
Premiering in theaters Dec 7, 2021, the remake is just a few weeks away from us being able to see it on the big screen. And before it hits theaters, we’re staring at all the gowns and suits from the New York City premiere on Nov 29. From the stars of the remake to other surprising familiar faces — like Gayle King and Martin Short and Steven Spielberg’s daughter Destryn — the red carpet was filled with some of our favorite A-listers.
