Krysten Ritter wore a stunning red Julien Macdonald dress to the red carpet premiere of Netflix’s The Defenders.


Ritter plays Julia Jones on the new show about unlikely superheroes, with each already starring in their own standalone Netflix series. The Macdonald dress was shiny and blood red with an almost snake-skin design, baring half of Ritter’s midriff, though belted on her skin. She wore red lipstick to match. Ritter paired the dress with strappy black heels.

Ritter loved her look so much that she took it upon herself to share a story about it on her Instagram feed: “Little fun backstory – this dress is a designer I love and my bff and super stylist @ilariaurbinati saw it months ago and we begged them to hold it for me knowing it was THE DRESS for the premiere – thank you @julienmacdonald for once again letting me wear your work of art. Made me feel pretty fabulous.”

The Defenders will drop Aug. 18, and is composed of Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Finn Jones‘ Iron Fist, Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage, and Charlie Cox‘s Daredevil. All of these series were met with praise, with the exception of Iron Fist, though Marvel and Netflix seem to have addressed this in their campaign for The Defenders. The series released another trailer on July 21 and gives a dramatic flair to the fun new series from the Marvel Universe.
