It was a total celebrity takeover last night at the Hollywood premiere of Lionsgate’s upcoming rom-com The Perfect Match. Peep red carpet arrivals from Lauren London, French Montana, Paula Patton, Queen Latifah, Kali Hawk and many more inside….
The fabulous ones were on the L.A. scene last night for the premiere of rom-com The Perfect Match at the ArcLight Hollywood.
Actress Lauren London was front-and-center on the red carpet before the premiere of her new movie. The YBF chick worked the carpet in a steel gray House of CB dress and black sandals. Cute look.
TheYBF.com’s L.A. correspondent Lauren Taylor was on the scene to chop it up with celebs. Lauren told us that she had so much fun filming the movie that it didn’t really feel like work. With everyone already knowing one another, she said it just felt like she was hanging out with her friends.
Rapper French Montana was also on the scene for the festivities. He told us he had a great time shooting his first movie even though he was just playing himself.
Leading man and producer Terrence J, looking dapper in a Ermengildo Zegna suit, was all smiles as he snapped it up with his co-stars. He has been back and forth from the U.S. to the Caribbean to shoot for an upcoming dating show called “Coupled” that will premiere on FOX.
TJ appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” today where he said he had a special woman in his life. Wonder who she is….
Co-star Paula Patton slipped into this sexy strapless LBD to celebrate with her castmates. Those legs!
Paula saw Queen Latifah on the carpet and could hardly contain her excitement.
We’ll be seeing much more of Paula on the red carpet and the box office as she has a lot of projects coming down the pipeline.
Queen Latifah, who executive produced the rom-com, worked the carpet in a red flirty number. Get it Queen.
The gorgeous Kali Hawk strutted her stuff in a black sparkly two-piece by designer Aidan Mattox. She also stars in the film.
The sexiness that is Lance Gross stepped out to show support to his homies. SO fine.
We love to see the “Orange Is The New Black” characters get all dressed up. Dascha Polanco served all types of sexy in a strapless high slit gown finishing her look with a sleek updo.
The Perfect Guy star Michael Ealy was on the scene to support his peers. Heeeey Michael!
Model/actress Karrueche Tran popped up on the carpet in a winter white hip-hugging midi dress. She has been busy filming a new project and seemingly ignoring her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown after he expressed his love for her on his “Back To Sleep” remix.
Brotherly Love star Cory Hardrict hit the carpet solo sans his wife Tia Mowry Hardrict.
Director Billie Woodruff was looking sharp in chocolate brown suit before presenting his project to the audience.
R&B songstress Estelle kept it cute in a oversized printed sweatshirt and black trousers.
Former “Top Model” chick Eugena Washington, who stars in the film, put her best model foot forward in a black midi dress and black strappy sandals.
Model Chantel Jeffries had her lady lumps sitting right in a Michael Costello jumpsuit. She also stars in the film.
Comedian Gary Owen was all smiles as he made his way down the carpet.
Reunited couple Diddy and Cassie, slaying in a Stello gown, brought the coupledom fab on the arpet. Cassie told us that she had a BLAST working with her bestie Lauren London and the entire cast. What’s next for Cassie? She told us she’s working on new music, so get ready for her to make a splash on the music scene soon.
“Shades of Blue” actress Jennifer Lopez, looking amazing in Cushnie et Ochs midi dress, was the supportive girlfriend as she was on her man Casper Smart’s arm on the carpet.
We caught up with Casper and he told us that he wanted to stand out from everyone else in the film, so he asked director Billie Woodruff if he could ride a Hover Board the entire movie. At first, Billie wasn’t feeling it. But after some convincing, he let Casper ride the Hover Board in the film and it was a success. Ha!
Expectant couple Draya and Orlando Scandrick bumped along down the carpet before checking out the flick.
Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons and his model girlfriend Lucy McIntosh have been hitting up several events together lately. She was right by her man’s side for last night’s premiere.
At the afterparty:
Diddy and Cassie were all cozied up in the cut.
All love between JLo’s ex Diddy and her current beau Casper.
Queen, Bessie producer (And Queen’s right hand) Shakim Compere, Casper and JLo stopped for a photo-op.
The guys gathered for a fun selfie.
Producer Will Packer and his wife Heather Packer were in the mix to party it up with TJ. Will praised TJ on IG saying, “From OUTWORKING EVERYONE to earn an ensemble part in your first major movie to producing and STARRING in your first lead role…watching your incredible growth has been inspiring lil bro. We are so proud and honored to support this guy right here. Congratulations family.”
“black•ish” actor Anthony Anderson also came out to party with the cast.
Being the gentleman that he is, TJ escorted his co-star Dascha to a waiting private jet after the party.
