Cast members Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski attended the premiere of the motion picture romantic drama “We Are Your Friends” at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on August 20, 2015.
Strolling down the red carpet, Emily wore a daring, low-cut pink Maria Lucia Hohan gown and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. The 24 year old model and actress showed quite a bit of skin in the Grecian-inspired gown, which featured a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit up the left side. Zac on the other hand kept it simple with a navy suit and matching t-shirt.
Aside from the requisite super-fans that lined Hollywood Boulevard, other notable attendees included fellow cast members Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez and Alex Shaffer. Celebrity guests included Kirby Bliss Blanton, Briana Evigan, Jillian Rose Reed, Aldis Hodge and Brittany Furlan among others.
Efron recently told Variety that he has long been a fan of Electronic Dance Music (EDM); an increasingly popular music Genre that has really taken-off over the past 5 years and is a big part of the film. “It’s fantastic that we were able to integrate electronic music into what is a really universal film. It’s sort of like what disco was in ‘Saturday Night Fever.’ That movie really is about a guy transitioning from a certain place in his life and becoming an adult and the backdrop is disco, so this is our generation’s version and it’s electronic music.”
Electronic dance music has become increasingly popular during the past few years, director and co-writer Max Joseph tells the Hollywood reporter that he sees his movie as a modern coming-of-age music film. “Some of my favorite movies are music films, but music films are often coming-of-age films that are set against the music of that era,” In a separate interview, Joseph told THR. “I think because electronic music has exploded and has started to cross over to the mainstream in the last five years or so, it’s apt that a coming-of-age movie that’s set in today’s world would have electronic music as the backdrop.”
