RED CARPET FAB: Lauren London, Garcelle Beauvais & Viola Davis At The LA Premiere Of "THE HELP"

Lauren London and Garcelle Beauvais were among the YBF chicks who came out to celebrate Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer at the premiere of The Help.  See the fab pics inside....

Last night, Lauren London and others attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Help at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California.  Lauren looked cute rocking white beaded pants embellished with intricate beading by Project Runway Winner designer, Irina Shabayeva.  And her gold double band floating diamond ring she rocked was for a cause.  It's by Royal Asscher Diamonds and is from The Stars of Africa line, which was created to give back to the people of Africa.

In this canary yellow blouse and with blue slacks, Garcelle Beauvais looked stunning.

 

Wearing a radiant red gown, Viola Davis posed with her husband Julius Tennon.  Love their matching colors!

Aunjanue Ellis wore this yellow dress that had a vintage feel to it.  Or something...

Octavia Spencer posed with her co-star Bryce Dallas Howard on the red carpet.

Actor Brandon T. Jackson was there.

And actress Tamala Jones also walked the carpet.


 

And the entire cast got together for a group photo: Producer Brunson Green, writer Kathryn Stockett, actors Aunjanue Ellis, David Oyelowo, Mike Vogel, Chris Lowell, Mary Steenburgen and producer Chris Columbus (Bottom L-R) Actors Leslie Jordan, Sissy Spacek, Emma Stone, Ahna O'Reilly, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain and director Tate Taylor

MY Daugher wants to take me to see the movie, but truly it is not my choice of a movie however i do like some of the black actresses in the movie, and i will support them, seems like this movie should have came out in 60s or 70s it's so outdated, who in the hell wants to be somebody mAID

This movie is the business.

This movie is the business. It has great dialogue, makes you laugh, think and cry a little. It is def a must see. Please go out in droves to support our ladies; Viola, Octavia etc.
Please SUPPORT IT's picture

Speaking of supporting,

Speaking of supporting, Notice that all the A list black actors in Hollywood did not come out to walk the red carpet for this movie? I think it's very telling that Oprah, Denzel, Jamie Fox, Angela Basset, Tyler Perry, Will and Jada Smith, No one big from the music industry, Maya Angelou, Cicely Tyson, Samuel L. Jackson..and the list goes on. None of the elite in black Hollywood came out for this movie. I think many of the stars I mentioned want to create different types of roles for African Americans and aren't interested in supporting aspects of the industry that will not change.

Unfortunately I can't go see

Unfortunately I can't go see this movie. I just watched CNN and T.J Holmes had on a woman that explained why so many people are a little upset about this movie. It's not because black women are playing maids, and not because the author of the book is a white woman. People are upset because the primary figure in the movie is a white woman and the story is implying that the white character in the movie is responsible for helping to start the Civil Rights movement. I don't have a problem with fictional characters, but certain historical time frames in our county and world history should not be fictionalized. Slavery, the Holocaust and the Civil Rights movement were important times and quite devastating. I would rAther see a movie about Rosa Parks and her quiet, strong and graceful demeanor portrayed in a movie rather than a fictionalized white female character pretending to help spark the Civil Rights movement. I can't support Hollywoods need to continue to green-light movies that make African americans appear to need to be saved by another race of people. We did a lot to save and help ourselves, and until Hollywood is comfortable enough to let us tell our own history and portray some realness then I can't continue to support these black actresses. I don't like being forced to choose between seeing a good black actress or giving money to movie studios that twists the truth to make white women look like the heroes.

One mor point I wanted to

One mor point I wanted to make about this movie is that it appears the the black actresses in the movie are doing all the interviews to push this movie?? I haven't seen many of the white cast members, men or women pushing this movie like the two black actresses?? I also noticed that the only white people that seemed to be walking the red carpet are the cast members, no one else white in hollywood is coming out to support this movie?? I see a few black celebrities, but no other white celebrities other than the cast in the movie.

Love all these ladies they ALL look great however I will not support this movie this is not a true story this a story written by a white woman about how a lil white girl saves the day for the black people ...

Saw the movie this afternoon,

Saw the movie this afternoon, and it was AWESOME! My Grandmother was a maid her whole life and now I have a better understanding of what she had to deal with all those years...She worked for the same family since she was a teenager in Southeast Texas. To all the people saying negative things about this movie without even seeing it, when did it become embarassing to tell the experiences of our ancestors? I agree that is not and should not be the ONLY depiction of black women, but this is our history. I am not ashamed, and I feel sorry for those of your who are.

If u enjoyed the movie Im not mad at cha but the movie whitewashes the whole civil rights movment it wasnt started by a lil white girl fresh outta college it was started by black men and women.

Your comment stems from

Your comment stems from ignorance and self hatred. Your attempt at sarcasm pathetic. Assuming that being a maid or any other type of domestic was/is shameful may reflect the attitude of the misguided youth of today who won't even flip a burger to STRART. People took jobs that were available and worked them with PRIDE. Not to DOTE on the "lil' white chilren", but to feed their families. Unlike so many of us today who won't clean their own toilets let alone someone else's, even for a paycheck. We are further behind today than we were 100 years ago and the sad part of it all is, we have more opportunities. I hope you're raising doctors and lawyers and not huggers and muggers.

(smiles) thanks for ur

(smiles) thanks for ur concern but theres nothing self hating about me or my point of view. actually my pov comes from not wanting our legacy in the hands of ppl who really hate us. This is not history this is FICTION written by a white woman who had a black nanny. realize that. and I do have 2 step children I love btw and whether their doctors or not they will not hate themselves like that women protrayed in this book.

Can't wait to see this! This

Can't wait to see this! This movie is NOTHING to be ashamed about. If you are comfortable in your own blackness and understand your history, you would understand how the role that being a domestic housekeeper/maid, helped to shape the fearless black great-grandmothers, grandmothers, great-aunts, aunts,etc...that we had. The sad thing is that too many of us have gotten too white-washed and "post-racial" that we have no clue who we are really are, and what's worse, is that some of us don't even care to know.

Agreed. It's like we have

Agreed. It's like we have become too conformed with society...How in the hell could you be mad about a movie being made to HONOR our Grandmothers, Great Aunts, etc.? I don't get it, and I weep for our youth. My daughter will know her history and she will not be ashamed.

Why do you think that black

Why do you think that black women that don't want to see this movie are ashamed or embarrassed as a few have suggested about this movie? I'm not ashamed that black women including my grandmother who was a maid worked as maids or that black men worked as porters and janitors. Not wanting to see this movie is not based on shame and I don't want anyone to try and guy,t or shame me for not wanting to see the movie. I said in a previous post that the issue is Hollywood wants to tell a fictional account of what it is to be a black maid from a white womans perspective and not allow black women to tell our own stories. This movie is by the way based on fiction. Remember that this was the era of Jim Crow Mississippi and rest assured this movie was a very clean, sanitized version of what it was like to be a black maid or cook in 1950's-60's Mississippi or the South in general. Many black men were lynched, Emmit Till was murdered and there wasn't much laughing going on with black folks in the deep South during this time. This movie is Fiction. It should not be portrayed as fact, so no one should be told they are ashamed or embarrassed to see something that's based on fiction. Rosa Parks was real, Dr. King was real. This movie is fiction, so everyone needs to stop attempting to state this movie was based off of a true story.

THIS MOVIE IN MY OPINION IS A

THIS MOVIE IN MY OPINION IS A DISGRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY LOVE TO PUT BLACK WOMEN IN THE MAMMY ROLE AND ITS SICKENING!!!!!!! AND THE WOMAN THAT THE PICTURE AND BOOK IS BASED ON IS SUING THEM! IM NOT DOWN FOR THE SLAVE FLIMS!

I don't Know anything about

I don't Know anything about the author other than she is white. I was wondering why I haven't seen the author of the book on t.v?
Tina's picture

Oh GET OVER IT! Yes

Oh GET OVER IT! Yes hollywood likes the Mammy Role but at the same time are you trying to say that housekeepers who made a difference have no right to have their story told. ANd ya'll act like blacks aren't housekeepers anymore? To say that is to insult those who are and act like there is something wrong with their choice of a living. There are still MANY black housekeepers. Get a grip! Ya'll don't even know when to be repulsed.
bahamasfilmgirl's picture

I understand what you're

I understand what you're saying and I do agree but I read the book and thought the message was positive. Yes, Hollywood loves to dehumanize us and I'm no fan of seeing black women playing maids in this day in age but I will see the movie because I actually enjoyed the book.

I read all the comments,

I read all the comments, unfortunately. Y'all are some sad and hateful people. All the ladies looks lovely. Maybe the ladies who are not in the film (Lauren, Garcelle, Tamala) decided to go casual to keep the focus on the stars in the film? Just a thought. I think it is cool that they supported their sistahs in film.

@ Chocolate Man - I'm trying to read between the lines of your posts. It appears that you are trying to promote black love and unity but you are doing it all wrong! Come correct!!! What is the point of giving us a box full of knowledge (black men & women need to love each other) then adding a stick of dynamite in the box (white man's whore, etc.). The Dynamite DESTROYS the ENTIRE box!!!! Come correct!!!!

The Clips I've seen of those kids in London is PATHETIC. Substantive change is not going to come from violence and CRIME. Don't bash Americans. And if you're so PRO LONDON what are you doing on this AMERICAN BLOG posting about THE HELP. I just love comments like this one LMAO

Um correction people usually

Um correction people usually have to die for a change to happen note: the civil rights movement and the civil war. At the end of Martin Luthers stint he even spoke with Malcolm because he was thinking of using violence because eveything else was not working. Go back and take a 2nd look at history, not saying it is right but violence usually brings about change because people begin to look. Rodney King is the prime example after the riots those officers got a re-trial.

Everyone looks cute. I love

Everyone looks cute. I love Garcelle's ensemble. SMH @ Tamela because she loves her animal print! I'm not feeling it for this even tho but she still looks beautiful. I love how Viola and her husband are matching just right! It doesn't come off as too matchy matchy. I hope this movie does well and does a good job translating from the book to the screen. Our sistas in this movie deserve to shine.

Viola was by far the best

Viola was by far the best dressed and looking for this occasion. That dress complemented her very well, and was such a lovely cut. It wold work nice for a very simple wedding dress if it were white and sleeveless. Loved it.
