Jenna Ortega Dressed Like a Goth Bride for Wednesday’s Black Carpet Premiere

Jenna Ortega wore a glamorous Goth bridal gown from Versace spring/summer 2023 collection and matching black veil to the black carpet premiere of wednesday. Fittingly, the event was held on a Wednesday. Directed by Tim Burton, the Addams Family spinoff series will premiere November 23 on Netflix.

Ortega has been working with stylist Enrique Melendez throughout her wednesday turn press. Of her decision to wear the veil, Ortega told AND the finishing touch felt “appropriate.”

“I felt like if I was gonna wear black like everyone else, I probably should make a deal out of it,” she said. “I put it on and I just knew that this is probably what I should do.”

“I think she would appreciate the veil,” she noted in reference to her character.

In the supernatural mystery series, Ortega plays the morose teenager Wednesday Addams as she enrolls in Nevermore Academy—a school full of secrets, dark forces, and unlikely friends.

Ortega spent months learning to fence and play the cello for the part.

“I started cello and fencing a couple months before we started production and then I continued throughout the the eight months of shooting in Romania,” she explained. “I would have lessons a couple times a week, so I would do the 12-14 hour work day and then I would have cello and fencing at the end of my day.”

Ortega wasn’t the only wednesday cast member dressed to kill on the black carpet. Co-star Christina Ricci, who plays Ms. Thornhill in the series, wore a Rodarte fall/winter 2020 archival metallic tulle tiered gown featuring a hand-beaded spider, styled by Alexandra Mandelkorn.
