The Red 2 film premiere happened on the hottest day of the year in London but the celebrities managed to stay cool on the red carpet in some pretty outfits. This is one of the rare few times that I haven’t seen one single maxi dress on the red carpet – most stars wore knee length dresses and singer Katie Melua (above left) wore shorts. I think she pulled it off though as Katie is quite adventurous in all aspects of her life. As she was being interviewed on the red carpet she told me that she’d just come from a charity sky dive for Armed Forces charity The Royal British Legion. My legs would be shaking after that but Katie looked calm and well put together in her white shorts.
The film has a big budget cast with Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta Jones and Bruce Willis and one of my other favourite looks of the night was from Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming-Willis.
The lightweight blue dress is so summery and I think she even upstages her film star husband, especially with those beige platform shoes. I had to ask Bruce about the movie he’s best known for, Die Hard, and he confirmed that there were plans to do a Die Hard 6 called Die Hardest. Bruce is now 58 and he’s still working hard!
Finally, I have to say that Mary Louise Parker is an actress that is going to have tons more work after finishing this film. She looked drop dead gorgeous at the premiere in a floaty grey dress and she’s becoming a bit of a sex symbol as she got to kiss Bruce Willis in Red 2. What was that like? ‘It’s not very sexy when everyone’s watching you but Bruce was a gentleman,’ she revealed. Well, she knows how to be diplomatic at least. Her next role will be alongside Selena Gomez and Heather Graham in a comedy called Behaving Badly. Watch out for her!
Red 2 – a gripping thriller about an ex CIA operative’s search to prevent a nuclear war device from falling into the wrong hands – is out on 2 August in the UK. It will have you on the edge of your seats.
