Michelle Rodriguez arrived at the U.K. premiere of “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” in London on Thursday, taking a minimalist approach to dressing.
In celebration of the premiere of her new movie, the actress wore a vintage black Balenciaga gown with a low-cut neckline and a shiny finish to the fabric. She accessorized the look with two diamond necklaces from Nour by Jahan and finished the look with metallic silver stilettos from Schutz.
To create her look for the premiere, Rodriguez worked with stylist Sarah Nearis, who also works with Casey Rose Wilson, Kate Beckinsale and Brandi Carlile.
Rodriguez is well known for her roles in action films, having been part of “The Fast & The Furious” franchise since the first installment and appearing in several others in the series, including “Fast & Furious,” “Fast & Furious 6,” “Furious 7” and “The Fate of the Furious.”
Rodriguez’s choice to wear Balenciaga comes after the brand spent 2022 battling controversy after controversy. In October, the brand severed ties with Ye after he repeatedly used hate speech. In November, they found themselves in hot water for ad campaign images featuring children holding bondage teddy bears. The brand’s creative director Demna apologized for the ads and said Balenciaga would return to its heritage and archives.
“Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” is based on the tabletop role-playing game Dungeon & Dragons. The new film has no connection to the previous “Dungeons & Dragons” film trilogy released between 2000 and 2012, but rather is a new movie within the game’s media universe. In addition to Rodriguez, the film stars Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith and Hugh Grant. The movie had its premiere at SXSW on March 10 and will have a wide release in the U.S. on March 31.
