Jenna Ortega wore a glamorous goth bridal gown from Versace spring/summer 2023 collection and matching black veil to the black carpet premiere of Wednesday. Fittingly, the event was held on a Wednesday. Directed by Tim Burton, the Addams Family spinoff series will premiere November 23 on Netflix.
Ortega has been working with stylist Enrique Melendez throughout her Wednesday press tour. Of her decision to wear the veil, Ortega told ET the finishing touch felt “appropriate.”
“I felt like if I was gonna wear black like everyone else, I probably should make a deal out it,” she said. “I put it on and I just knew that this is probably what I should do.”
“I think she would appreciate the veil,” she noted in reference to her character.
In the supernatural mystery series, Ortega plays the morose teenager Wednesday Addams as she enrolls in Nevermore Academy—a school full of secrets, dark forces, and unlikely friends.
Ortega spent months learning to fence and play the cello for the part.
