As an avid fan of the original 1989 film Steel Magnolias, I was on the fence about the remake when I heard about it this summer. Now that I have had a chance to see the trailer, I must admit, I am looking forward to seeing it when it’s broadcast on Lifetime this weekend. The cast of Steel Magnolias and other celebrities came together on Wed. night in New York to celebrate the premiere of the new film, which features an all-black ensemble cast.
The film’s Executive Producer Queen Latifah, alongside her co-stars Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, and Condola Rashad, came out to celebrate the premiere of their Steel Magnolias remake with a viewing event and party.
Many people came to the soiree to show love including singer Keri Hilson, Lifetime Dance Mom’s choreographer Abby Lee Miller, and more.
Take a peek at the photos from the event below:
