Sunday night’s Little Women world premiere saw the film’s star-studded cast, including Emma Watson, 29, Saoirse Ronan, 25, and Laura Dern, 52, out in full force.

Timothée Chalamet, 23, Florence Pugh, 23, and James Norton, 34, who also star in the film, were in attendance, together with the film’s director Greta Gerwig, 36, and up-and-coming star Eliza Scanlen, 20.

The event took place at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The fashion stakes were high: Watson wore an outfit from Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2020 collection. She made the look her own by adding the vampish silk and lace gown into the top of her thigh-high boots, and carried a shell-shaped clutch in one hand.

“This is what the cool girls are doing,” Watson told Entertainment Daily of her unusual styling.

Gerwig looked glamorous in an Oscar de la Renta sleeveless puffball gown, while Scanlen wore a floor-length white gown with dramatic puffed sleeves and a gladiator-style waist belt, from Khaite's autumn/winter 2019 collection.

Meanwhile, Dern embraced the festive spirit in a purple sequinned floor-length gown by Ralph Lauren.

Pugh wore an off-the-shoulder blue satin gown by Valentino with a dramatic bow-style detail, paired with metallic strappy sandals, and Ronan wore a Gucci look with a side split and black knee boots.

"I thought in true Amy fashion to be very loud and maybe be a bow and maybe also dress like a present," she told Entertainment Daily of her outfit choice.
