Kapow! Brie Larson might have been out of the spotlight shooting her next string of films, but, this week, she came back with a bang on the promotional tour of Captain Marvel, the 21st film in the comic book franchise and the first with a female lead.
As the titular role, Larson had two options at the London premiere. Downplay the superhero connotations and opt for a classic red-carpet gown which would make an impact of its own accord – much like the Celine by Hedi Slimane design that she wore at the Oscars 2019. Or, get into character and commission a fantastical dress to acknowledge that it’s a kick-ass – albeit long overdue – moment to be celebrated. Larson chose the latter.
