Reese brings daughter Ava to A Wrinkle In Time prem

Ava DuVernay’s film adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel A Wrinkle In Time rang in its Los Angeles premiere Monday night.

Reese Witherspoon, one of its stars, dazzled in a sparkling scarlet floor-length gown that was off the shoulder at the left side.

The 41-year-old was joined by the eldest of her three children, her 18-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe by her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.

Reese’s hair had been teased into a wavy do, which she allowed to fall free over her shoulders, and she accentuated her movie star features with makeup.

A bracelet glittered around her left wrist, and at the right side, she had a puffed-out sleeve that stretched down nearly to her elbow.

As she walked the blue carpet outdoors, it appeared that Reese occasionally got chilly, as she was snapped with a dark overcoat draped over her shoulders.
