In HBO’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rose Byrne plays the role of Rebecca Skloot, an investigative journalist working to uncover the story of Henrietta Lacks, a woman whose cells were used to create the very first "immortal" human cell line. If you’ve watched the trailer, you know two things: First, the all mighty Oprah Winfrey is the other star of the movie. Second, this is one chill-inducing, powerful flick.
So what do you wear to the New York premiere of a serious film that co-stars arguably the most famous person in the world? Do you go demure, in a sleek black dress? Old Hollywood, in something gold and mermaid shaped? How about NO! How about you go fun, flirty, seasonal, and lighthearted?

That’s exactly what the wonderful (and btw hilarious) Byrne did last night when she arrived at the premiere in a frilly floral Rosie Assoulin number from the designer's fall 2017 collection. Wearing a Rosie dress takes gusto: Her voluminous, highly patterned, bright pieces are best complimented by a big personality … which is exactly why Byrne shined so bright in this look. Never afraid to play with color, her stylist (Penny Lovell) paired the vibrant dress with a pair of Jimmy Choo suede purple pumps and a white clutch.
