Actors and actresses walked the red carpet at The Butler movie premiere at Ziegfeld Theater in New York on 5 August as leading ladies of Hollywood dazzled in style, much to the delight of photographers.

Naomi Watts was a head-turner as she walked hand-in-hand with her partner Liev Schreiber, who stars in the upcoming American historical drama film, in a black pantsuit with spaghetti neckline. The 44-year-old actress, who plays Princess Diana in a forthcoming biopic, teamed her one-piece dress with strappy black heels. She finished her look with a sleek diamond pendant and golden ring earrings.

Minka Kelly, who will be seen as First Lady Jackie Kennedy in The Butler, showed off her flawless skin in a printed one-shoulder gown and equally stole the spotlight.

Other stars who shone on the night included talk show host Oprah Winfrey and Mariah Carey.

Winfrey opted for a shimmering pink frock with a v-neckline and a pair of silver heels, while Mariah Carey was seen in her latest trademark – the sling. Carey wore a black mini-dress and a studded sling. The 43-year-old singer has been sporting fashionable slings since she dislocated her shoulder during filming of the music video for her song, #Beautiful.
