No expense was spared for The Spiderman 2 premiere in London’s Leicester Square! A whole team of actors were hired to dress as Spidey. The actors and actresses wore gorgeous gowns and bespoke suits. And actor Andrew Garfield took over an entire London bus to make his entrance. This actually drove down the red carpet and Andrew got off!
But more eyes were on Andrew’s co-star and real-life girlfriend Emma Stone. She was wearing a yellow dress after all.
And wow, did she make me think differently about wearing the colour. I’ve always been a bit scared of it but she made it look fresh and summery. It also showed off her tattoo. And she exclusively revealed the meaning behind it to me. Emma said: ‘My mum’s favourite song is Blackbird by Paul McCartney, and since I’d met him before, I asked him if he’d draw two little bird feet for us, as a tattoo design. And, amazingly enough, he did!’ That’s pretty cool!
Spiderman himself, Andrew Garfield, spoke about the pressures of playing one of the best loved comic book characters. It turns out one of his biggest difficulties was fashion related as wearing the suit, which was very revealing in the crotch area, could have led to embarrassment. Andrew said: ‘It takes a lot of consideration because you don’t want it to be overwhelming and you also don’t want it to be underwhelming. You don’t want it to intimidate and you don’t want it to…the opposite of intimidate. So, yes, there is thought but ultimately you have to trust that what you have is enough. In the end I had one focus group and that focus group was Emma and she approved.’ Thank goodness for that.
Other stars looking hot to watch the movie included TOWIE star Jessica Wright and Ricky Rayment. Jessica’s floral dress also screams summer.
Ferne McCann from TOWIE got her legs out in a maxi dress with a thigh high split.
And Jamie Foxx, who plays a baddie in the film, looked slick in a suit. Nice!
The film opens in cinemas on 16 April. Will you be watching it? And are you more daring about wearing yellow after seeing Emma’s dress? Come on, let’s do it together.
