Billie Piper shone on the red carpet for the premiere of relationship drama Marriage Story, which stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson.

The Doctor Who actress wore a silver-sequinned gown that reflected the light onto her face, giving her whole aesthetic an ethereal vibe.

Marriage Story stars Scarlett Johannson and Adam Driver, who attended the premiere where it debuted to a star-studded crowd.

Noah Baumbach’s new film looks absolutely devastating, with the pair starring opposite each other in the upcoming Netflix drama which is described as ‘an incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together.’

Scarlett, 34, admitted that her own divorce from Romain Dauriac helped her prepare for the role in this movie.

‘I was actually going through a divorce,’ Johannson told Variety.

‘I didn’t know what we were going to talk about…I just kind of blew into the room, ordered a glass of white wine and started complaining (about the split). And he was just listening and very attentive. And then he kind of cut it short and said, “Funny you should mention it”.’

However, Billie wasn’t at the premiere as a co-star.

The singer-turned-actor was at the Venice Film Festival for her movie Rare Beasts.

She plays a modern woman named Mandy who is raising a son in the midst of her own issues while unearthing the pain of her parents’ separation and professionally writing about a love that doesn’t exist.

The anti-rom-com focuses on Mandy falling for a traditionalist man which is everything she isn’t.

Rare Beasts is written and directed by the talented actress as well, making it even more exciting to watch.

Speaking to Screen Daily, the Secret Diary of a Call Girl actress said: ‘I identify a great deal with the themes in this film. And my friends and all their woes. That feels exciting that it comes from a place of truth, but then it’s gone into my mind and been reimagined and dramatized and heightened.’

Be warned, Billie also said the characters aren’t very likeable and will be extremely ‘divisive’.
