Yara Shahidi channeled her inner Tinker Bell at the world premiere of the new live-action film, Peter Pan & Wendy.

Before her red carpet debut, the Grown-ish star shared a couple of sneak peek photos of her dazzling look on Instagram. In the first pic, Shahidi is wearing a beautiful golden gown designed by Alexandra McQueen (whose designer pieces have become a staple in Kate Middleton’s wardrobe). 

The dress, which features a shimmering fringed hem and a cutout design on the sides, goes perfectly with her gold-beaded boots and matching stud earrings. And she tied the entire ensemble together with a braided cornrow style. 

In the caption of her post, Shahidi wrote “MADE OF PIXIE DUST [star emoji] a special @alexandermcqueen sparkle for the @disneypeterpan world premiere [fairy emoji] #tinkerbell.”

Her followers shared their admiration for the stunning golden ensemble in the comments section. One person commented, “Stunning,” along with red heart emojis. Another wrote, “Prettiest fairy princess.”

Shahidi, 23, attended the movie premiere of Peter Pan & Wendy on Wednesday, April 19, at the Curzon Mayfair in London. The Sun Is Also a Star alum posed for photos on the red carpet, and of course, she slayed per usual.

Back in February, Shahidi made her grand debut as the magical fairy in the first-look trailer for Disney+’s new live-action, Peter Pan & Wendy. (When the movie premieres, you can watch it on Disney+ by subscribing for $7.99 a month.) 

In the trailer, Peter Pan (played by Alexander Molony) enters the bedroom shared by Wendy and her two younger brothers, Michael and John, alongside Tinker Bell. In complete disbelief, Michael asks, “Peter Pan?” And the lost boy responds with a smile, “Were you expecting someone else?”

Yara, we can’t get enough of this dress.
