Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith make stylish return to the red carpet for the first time since that Oscars moment

Jada Pinkett Smith brought some major Hollywood drama to the red carpet last night.

The actress stepped out in Los Angeles at the premiere of her husband’s new film Emancipation, a picture that explores the story of a runaway slave who contends with the swamps of Louisiana in a bid to travel north.

There was absolutely zero blending into the background for the actress thanks to her exquisite Stephane Rolland gown, and the statement piece undoubtedly took centre stage.

The off-white gown had a high fold-over neckline and a baby doll-like silhouette. The top half was adorned with silver beads and was short at the front, but extended into a long, voluminous train, strongly reminiscent of billowing clouds.

The 51-year-old was all about the silver, opting for chrome strappy heels, a selection of glimmering bracelets as well as a striking ear bar by LA-based jewellery label Katkim.

Husband Will Smith made his first return to the red carpet on Wednesday since that Oscars moment. His appearance comes eight months after he pretty memorably struck Chris Rock during this year's ceremony, turning the 94th annual Academy Awards into a night that, honestly, we still can't quite believe actually happened.

After such a high-profile ordeal, one could be forgiven for thinking that he might want to make his return in a slightly low-key, inconspicuous manner.

But Will instead pulled out all the stops, looking suave in a suit that set him apart from the rest. Instead of adhering to tradition and opting for sleek black, the actor danced to the beat of his own drum and went for a plush burgundy shade for his blazer, trousers and double-breasted waistcoat. Adding a touch of opulence, he styled his powdery pink shirt with a dazzling central brooch in the centre of his collar – proving that the 54-year-old is entirely ready to fully embrace the party season.

We can’t wait to see what the duo have in store for their next joint appearance…
