A Los Angeles premiere event for "Cadillac Records" has been held on Monday, November 24, evening, at The Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, California. Benefiting Phoenix House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those affected by addiction, the gala saw the film's stars dressing up for the special occasion.
While scruffy Adrien Brody walked down the red carpet wearing a black suit, his co-star Beyonce Knowles came to the premiere dressed in a black Dolce & Gabbana dress with puff sleeves. Brody was accompanied by Elsa Pataky, whereas Knowles brought her mother, Tina Knowles, to the special evening.
Other than Brody and Knowles, their other co-stars making an appearance at the event included Gabrielle Union, Jeffrey Wright, Eamonn Walker, Columbus Short and Chyna Layne. The film's producer Andrew Lack as well as other guests, such as Etta James, Lauren London, Rachel Roberts and Sanaa Lathan were also seen on the red carpet.
"Cadillac Records" is directed and scripted by Darnell Martin. It is a drama musical chronicling the rise of Chess Records and its recording artists that include Muddy Waters, Little Walter and Howlin' Wolf. It will come out to the U.S. big screen on December 5.
