West Side Story's Rachel Zegler Has a Princess Moment in a Blush, Sequined Ball Gown
West Side Story‘s Rachel Zegler can rock a ball gown, but this one wins the award for dreamiest. The rising star, who was also cast as Snow White for the live-action remake, works with stylist Sarah Slutsky for the red carpet, having worn dresses by Dior, Carolina Herrera, and Michael Kors before. But for the LA premiere of West Side Story, the duo tapped the Elie Saab fashion house for a blush-toned gown with a sweetheart neckline covered in sequins and a chiffon trailing skirt finished with floral embroidery and built up with tulle. A velvet bow cinches the waist, making the look appear all the more feminine and princess-like.
Accessories were wisely kept minimal – just delicate Neil Lane drop earrings, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Tyler Ellis envelope clutch to complement the tone and texture of the belt. Zegler joined her castmates, including Ariana DeBose, Ansel Elgort, Rita Moreno, Mike Faist, Josh Andrés, David Alvarez, and filmmaker Steven Spielberg, posing with prowess and (perhaps unintentionally) stealing the whole damn show in this masterpiece of a dress. Read on to zoom in on the details of her look, then get familiar with her incredible voice as you allow yourself to be mesmerised by her covers on YouTube.
