Jenna Ortega’s latest red carpet look came with an unexpected splash of color. At the “Scream 6” premiere in New York City on March 6, the actor wore a minidress that resembled a deconstructed tuxedo, featuring a plunging white button-down under a black jacket that gaped open and wrapped around her shoulders. Plucked from Jean Paul Gaultier’s fall 2022 couture collection, the edgy design was in line with the muted color palette Ortega’s been sticking to lately — until someone stained it with blue ink, that is.
About half of the photos from the event show Ortega with a prominent blue smudge on the white part of her dress near the neckline, likely sustained while a fan got her autograph. But she appeared unbothered by the accidental blemish as she posed with her costars at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater.
Ink stains aside, Ortega’s premiere look was still a major win. With input from stylist Enrique Melendez, the “Wednesday” star accessorized with two pieces of Tiffany & Co. jewelry: a circular silver ring and silver choker necklace adorned with a pavé diamond pendant shaped like a bean. She also wore peep-toe Jimmy Choo platforms with a nearly six-inch heel and finished the look with red lipstick, a glossy black manicure, and shimmery eye makeup.
Ortega wasn’t the only “Scream 6” star dressed to impress for the slasher film’s premiere. Melissa Barrera commanded attention in a black cutout Zuhair Murad gown, Jasmin Savoy Brown stunned in a light blue Givenchy slip dress, and Hayden Panettiere chose a silky black minidress and matching jacket. Clad in a black velvet tuxedo jacket, Courteney Cox brought along daughter Coco Arquette, who wore a striking red dress for the evening.
