Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones looked divine in black, as she graced the red carpet at Westwood Village in Los Angeles, for the premiere of Red 2. The film, due in theatres in the UK on 2 August, is a sequel to 2010's Red and features Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins and John Malkovich.

The 43 year old wife of American actor Michael Douglas opted for a figure-hugging, full-length, strapless, black lace Maria Lucia Hohan gown. The Academy Award-winning actress (Best Actress in Supporting Role for Chicago in 2003) accessorised with black Jerome Rousseau shoes, a Christian Louboutin clutch and Neil Lane jewelry.

The Ocean's Twelve star will feature as Russian spy Miranda Woods and be cast as the love interest for Willis' Frank Moses. She recently revealed problems learning the language and said that was the biggest hurdle she faced with the character.

"The hardest thing for me in the whole movie was when I had to speak Russian. I learn it, then I go to sleep, and when I wake up the next morning it is like my brain has gone blank. So there are lots of outtakes of me swearing," she told Film Journal.

Meanwhile, Willis was also at the premiere and he was accompanied by his wife, British actress Emma Hemming. The Die Hard star looked dapper in a white suit. Mirren, who won Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for 2006's The Queen, came with her director/husband Taylor Hackford, in a floor-length emerald coloured gown. Parker opted for a white Memeka by Gustavo Cadile and a Lauren Merkin clutch.

John Malkovich, South Korean actor Byung-hun Lee, Neal McDonough and South Korean singer/rapper Psy were also at the premiere. And the cast is scheduled to attend the European premiere of Red 2 on 22 July, at Leicester Square.
