Renee Zellweger wows in a pink gown and takes shelter under an umbrella at Judy’s London premiere

Over the past several weeks, she’s been busy on the publicity trail, as she promotes her new critically lauded Judy Garland biopic, Judy.

And Renee Zellweger, 50, showed no signs of slowing down on Monday night, when she stepped out in head-turning style for the film’s European premiere in London.

The Oscar-winning actress looked sensational as she arrived on the Curzon Mayfair’s red carpet in a pink off-shoulder Emilia Wickstead gown with long sleeves.

The screen star turned the umbrella into something of a fashion accessory, as she struck a series of captivating poses for photographers gathered at the event.

In Judy, Renee recreates the last year of Garland’s life as she prepared for a series of shows in London in early 1969.

Dogged by ill health, money worries and addiction to pills, the appearances were mostly disastrous.

‘It’s hard to fully appreciate the context of the circumstances that she was grappling with at the time,’ Renee recently said in an interview with USA Today.

‘And when you see what she was able to achieve in spite of the challenges she faced, then you can really see how extraordinary she was,’ she added. ‘It sort of sets her apart, in my opinion.’

Last week, Renee sat down for her first TV interview in six years, as she made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her movie.

Speaking of her busy schedule, she said: ‘I did Judy and as soon as I got home I did [Netflix show] What/If. It was so much fun to play. It was really fun. I looked at the script every day and I was like, “She said what?”‘

Of portraying Garland in the lead-up to her death, Renee added: ‘A lot of people think it was the tragic part of her life but in the context you can see how extraordinary she is… She is remarkable, one in a million.’

As far as transforming into the Hollywood, Renee revealed that she wore a ‘fantastic wig’ and used prosthetics – although she refused to specify where the prosthetics were applied, for fear of ruining the experience for viewers.

In March 1969, Garland married her fifth husband Mickey Deans, played in the movie by Finn Wittrock.

On June 22, Deans found Garland dead at their rented home in London’s Belgravia. She was 47 and died from an accidental overdose of barbiturates.

Judy is directed by British director Rupert Goold from a screenplay adaptation of Peter Quilter’s musical play End of the Rainbow by The Crown’s Tom Edge.

The film opened in the US on September 27 and will be unveiled in the UK on October 2.
