Cole Sprouse and Ari Fournier: The Epitome of Romantic Glamour
Cole Sprouse and his girlfriend of three years, IMG model Ari Fournier, brought dark romantic glamour to the premiere of the high school slasher romance movie.
The Riverdale actor looked dashing in his Balenciaga outfit, which consisted of a long black coat and a fitted tee tucked into a pair of wide-leg trousers, all finished off with black boots. His look was curated by Harry Lambert, while Sean James accentuated his chiseled jawline and styled his hair.
Sporting his signature textured wavy hairstyle, Cole wrapped his arm around his gorgeous girlfriend’s tiny waist.

Ari Fournier’s Enchanting Look: Elegance Meets Romance
Ari showcased her slender figure in a magnificent black sheer and organza dress from LA-based lifestyle label Staud. The “Florian” evening gown, available for $895 at Mytheresa, featured a tiered ruffled organza bodice and skirt, punctuated with a cinched waistband to draw attention to her slim frame and a sheer panel above the knees to reveal a hint of her toned pins.

The floor-length dress also had a halter neckline and a delicate white organza flower for a romantic touch.
Her shoes were hidden beneath her fantastic dress, and her only accessories were her statement ring and silver earrings, allowing the dress to speak for itself.

Joseph Chase styled Ari’s tresses in a chic twisted bun with Hepburn bangs, usually characterized by a short-length fringe that falls mid-forehead and is lightly swept to the side.
Kendal Fedail rounded out Fournier’s classic Audrey Hepburn look using makeup from Bobbi Brown, Monika Blunder, Nars, Makeup by Mario, Patrick Ta, Tom Ford, and Westman Atelier.
Her dreamy blue eyes were highlighted with subtle red eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner, while her cheeks were dusted with rosy blush. A swipe of bold red lipstick rounded out her glam.

The Role of The Creature: Cole Sprouse’s Unique Performance
In this rom-com horror flick, Cole mostly appears on screen, stumbling and groaning.
He jokingly told Yahoo Entertainment, “One of the things that excited me about [the role] was that I got to shut up for a little bit.”
He also said during the screening, “Tonight, I just want people to walk out of this screening with a smile on their face. The movie doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s very camp. It’s very enjoyable and cozy. We’ve got big bright colors. I don’t have a single line, so you guys are going to love that! You don’t [have to] hear my nasally voice. It’s going to be perfect.”

Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin: A Match Made in Style Heaven
Dylan Sprouse and his wife, Barbara Palvin, supported Cole Sprouse in matching solid black ensembles.
The 31-year-old actor, who’s 15 minutes older than Cole, wore a shimmering black suit composed of a double-breasted blazer jacket with notched lapels, a black crewneck tee, and matching straight-leg pants put together by stylist Marc Eram.
Wearing his long hair in messy side-parted waves, Dylan completed his all-black outfit with heeled boots, perhaps to emphasize his 5’11” height, while he stood next to his model wife, who wore a pair of towering pumps for the event.

Barbara Palvin: Gothic Glamour on the Red Carpet
Barbara, who is 5 feet and 7 1/2 inches tall, seemed to channel Morticia Addams in a black Maison Alaia Tafetta Jewel Gown.
Featuring a figure-hugging slim silhouette, a modest mock neck, puff long sleeves, and a fishtail skirt with a short train, this dramatic stretchy taffeta gown epitomized the “business at the front, party at the back” dress.
Although it had a modest front, the back revealed a hint of skin with its v-shaped décolleté, gathered by a jewel accent. This elegant gown retails for $5,360 at Mytheresa.

In a nod to Morticia Addams, Joseph Chase fashioned Palvin’s lengthy hair into gentle curls that framed her face and hung over her bust.
Lilly Keys completed the model’s gothic look with heavy winged eyeliner and mascara to accentuate her blue eyes. She also applied soft peachy blush to her cheeks and painted her lips peach.

Lisa Frankenstein: A Coming-of-Rage Movie About Finding Love and Happiness in a Resurrected Body
Set in 1989, Lisa Frankenstein centers on a goth teenage outcast, Lisa Swallows, played by Supernatural’s Kathryn Newton. She is forced to adjust to a new school following her mother’s death and her father’s new marriage. She finds comfort in an abandoned cemetery, where she develops a strong connection to the grave of a man who died in 1837.
Lisa unintentionally resurrects the dead man, a hopeless romantic pianist who took his own life over an unrequited love. Shocked, Lisa brings him to her home and hides him from her stepmother Janet (Carla Cugino) and stepsister Taffy (Liza Soberano).
In the movie, inspired by Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein, Cole Sprouse plays the resurrected man only known as The Creature, who gives Lisa confidence in exchange for her helping him build a better body.
As per Focus Features, Lisa Frankenstein is “A coming of RAGE love story from acclaimed writer Diablo Cody (Jennifer’s Body) about a misunderstood teenager and her high school crush, who happens to be a handsome corpse. After a set of playfully horrific circumstances bring him back to life, the two embark on a murderous journey to find love, happiness… and a few missing body parts along the way.”
Now showing in theaters, Lisa Frankenstein is directed by Zelda Williams, written by Diablo Cody, and distributed by Focus Features and Universal Pictures.
