Martin Scorsese's upcoming 3D adventure movie "Hugo" was premiered in New York on Monday night, November 21. Among the celebrities that turned heads on the red carpet rolled outside the Ziegfield Theatre in New York City was young actress Chloe Moretz.
The 14-year-old blond beauty became the belle of the ball as she hit the red carpet in a flowing nude-colored tube dress with ribbon details in the front. The actress who plays rebellious Isabelle in the movie finished off her classy look with a pair of golden peep-toe heels.
Joining Moretz on the red carpet were Emily Mortimer who looked elegant in a nude color maxi dress, and lead actor Asa Butterfield who looked dapper in a two-piece black suit complete with a red and blue striped tie. Also present at the premiere were two other male cast, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley.
Among the celebrity guests at the premiere were Vera Farmiga who opted for a sheer black dress, Patricia Clarkson who donned a black maxi dress, and filmmaker Spike Lee who looked casual in sneakers and denims. Ewa Da Cruz, Tony Bennet, Sylvia Miles and Montego Glover were the other stars in attendance.
Based on Brian Selznick's 2007 novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret", "Hugo" follows an orphan who dwells inside the wall of a busy train station in Paris. He spends his days to unlock a secret left to him by his late father. With the help from an eccentric girl named Isabelle, he embarks on an adventure to solve the mystery.
Slated for a November 23 release in U.S. theaters, the film also stars Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Ray Winstone and Richard Griffiths. Aside from serving behind the lens, Scorsese also co-produced the film along with Johnny Depp.
