The Queen & Slim premiere in Hollywood was almost like a black cookout that brought out all your YBF faves. Yes, everyone stepped out to see the black Bonnie & Clyde-esque film.

We don’t usually see Rihanna on a red carpet for a movie premiere, but chick blessed the red carpet for Queen & Slim’s premiere at AFI FEST, presented by Audi, held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The FENTY honcho skipped out on her FENTY threads and opted for a black silk John Gaillano kimono dress from his Spring/Summer ’95 collection. Vintage glam was served all over the red carpet.

The EMMY winner (pictured above alongside Melina and costume designer Shiona Turini) secretly tied the knot to her longtime partner Alana Mayo at a San Francisco courthouse recently. 

“We snuck and did it,” Lena shared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to guest host John Legend. “You know, we didn’t make any announcements. We went to San Francisco. We went to the courthouse. Got married right in front of [LGBTQ acitivist] Harvey Milk’s bust. It was her idea, as all good things are,” she explained. “She was just driving and she saw the courthouse and she said, ‘We should get married there.’ And I said, ‘Cool, I’m down.'”

Congrats to the married couple!
