Elizabeth Olsen stunned in a crimson gown on Wednesday when she attended the LA premiere of her new limited series Love & Death.
The Marvel star, 34 – who resembled a ray of sunshine last week in New York City – was in the fashionable company of Kirsten Dunst and Ashley Benson, who both rocked jet-black looks to the premiere.
Olsen commanded attention in her dramatic Givenchy gown that featured a scoop thigh-high hemline above the knees.
Dunst, 40, kept it simple and chic in a spaghetti strap dress, minimal jewelry and soft glam.
Benson, 33, rocked a skintight turtleneck minidress with long sleeves, sultry pumps and a very sharp manicure.
While Elizabeth and Ashley arrived solo, Kirsten attended the event on the arm of her husband Jesse Plemons, 35.
Plemons – who is Elizabeth’s principal co-star in Love & Death – looked handsome in a casual dark gray suit as he posed alongside his new wife. The happy couple tied the knot last year in July.
But nobody looked happier than Kaley Cuoco and her partner Tom Pelphrey, as the new parents flashed their beaming smiles up and down the carpet.
The pair welcomed their first child together last month – a daughter named Matilda Carmine Richie Pelphrey – and earlier this week they celebrated the one year anniversary of their relationship.
Cuoco looked radiant in a blue satin dress while her actor beau was dapper in a beige suit.
Pelphrey plays a supporting role in the upcoming true-crime series Love & Death, which is set to premiere on April 27.
The limited HBO show will recount the gruesome murder of small-town Texas housewife Betty Gore – played by Lily Rabe, whose husband was having an affair with her killer — friend and neighbor, Candy Montgomery (Olsen).
Gore’s cheating husband is played by Jesse Plemons and the series has earned solid reviews so far from critics.

Love & Death is set to premiere on HBO April 27
The first trailer for Love & Death dropped in February and showed Olsen fully inhabiting the role of a churchgoing mother who would eventually pickup an ax and murder her friend in 1980.
‘Something has been bothering me a little,’ Olsen says in the trailer. ‘I have done all the things a wife is supposed to do. The house, the meals… Where is the payback?’
Written by David E. Kelley, the show is another chilling adaptation of Candy Montgomery’s disturbing tale, who was portrayed by Jessica Biel last year in the titular Hulu series Candy.
‘We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the leading role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen,’ said Kevin Beggs, Chairman of Lionsgate Television Group. ‘Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other.’
