Thandie Newton and her daughter Nico Parker are fast becoming our favourite red carpet power duo. Earlier this month, the pair both wore opulent velvet dresses at the premiere of Tim Burton’s live action Disney remake of Dumbo in Los Angeles. The mother-daughter duo showcased their close connection again at the film’s London premiere on March 21, hitting the red carpet in equally showstopping designer gowns.
Held at the Curzon Mayfair cinema, Parker – who is making her acting debut in the role of Milly Farrier in the film – opted for a pale pink and orange Carolina Herrera gown for the premiere, while Newton wore a washed grey mid-length Mary Katrantzou dress featuring silver sequin-embellished organza, with metallic heels.
Directed by Tim Burton and due for UK release on March 29, the animated remake, starring Eva Green and Colin Farrell, recounts the tale of two children who care for a young elephant with huge ears. “At first it was nerve-racking remaking such a classic story,” Parker recently told Vogue. “In the end, though, I just got swept up in the magic of it all – the costumes, the stunts, the effects.”
