That’s a bloody good tribute.
For the costume celebration premiere of her new film “Halloween Kills” on Tuesday, Jamie Lee Curtis honored her late mom, Janet Leigh, by dressing up as her iconic character from 1960’s “Psycho.”
The 62-year-old actress expertly channeled Marion Crane in a belted, buttoned-up blue costume and quick blond wig, accessorizing with a ladylike black purse and pumps — together with a bloody bathe curtain, in fact.
“Honoring my mom in ALL her gory…I meant glory!” Curtis quipped on Instagram pre-premiere.
She elaborated on her sartorial tribute on the pink carpet at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese language Theatre, telling ET, “I’m honoring my stunning late mama, Janet Leigh, however… it’s a bit of extra meta than that.”
Continued Curtis, “I’m really going as Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh within the film ‘Hitchcock.’ So it’s meta as a result of we by no means knew what shade Janet Leigh’s costume was as a result of it was a black-and-white film. However now due to the ‘Hitchcock’ film, we all know it was pale blue.”
The “Halloween” heroine mentioned that the costume referred to as for her to get her palms soiled, too.
“Mommy did a bit of DIY artwork undertaking the opposite day,” she mentioned. “I used to be nervous you’d see this and simply assume I seemed like a ’50s housewife. So I believed, , perhaps I would like a bit of bloody bathe curtain.”
Curtis’ Hitchcock second wasn’t the one stellar costume on Tuesday’s carpet, although. Her “Kills” co-star Judy Greer went full Annie Corridor, whereas the “Actual Housewife of Beverly Hills” forged all bought within the Halloween spirit as nicely.
Whereas Lisa Rinna donned a rabbit go well with, referring little question to the infamously awkward bunny gift exchange with Kim Richards in season 7 of the Bravo present, Kylie Richards — who’s reprising her function as Lindsey Wallace — could also be throwing a barb at former “RHOBH” co-star Lisa Vanderpump along with her ringleader costume.
Kathy Hilton poked enjoyable at herself, dressing as a dentist named Hunky Dory, whereas Dorit Kemsley channeled a younger Paris Hilton.
“Halloween Kills” hits theaters on Friday.
