HANDMAID’S TALE 2 PREMIERE
The Chinese Theater
AN UNEXPECTED BACKDROP
The women dressed in handmaid uniforms posing above the backdrop added an element of suspense amongst the crowd. Their somber behavior was haunting, yet beautiful - just like the show.
The saying in Gilead is: “Under his eye”. On the red carpet, “Multiple eyes watched” as the night unraveled. Twelve women dressed in the iconic Handmaid uniforms stood shoulder to shoulder above the step and repeat. Unflinching, these women held their ground as talent walked the carpet. Dead trees and shrubs lined the concrete, creating a cold and telling atmosphere, mirroring the tone of the show. Three burning dresses placed on mannequins were installed at the exit poised as an ominous photo op for guests.
