Eva Longoria, Sara Sampaio, Paris Hilton, and Andie MacDowell were also spotted hitting the red carpet at the premiere.

Earlier in the day, Mindy, Amy, and Phyllis promoted the film during a press conference and photo call.

“It was the first time I was meeting [Docter and Del Carmen] and they were showing me the story and I started weeping. I think what moved me about it is that it gives voice to a demographic that is not often given voice to. I remember being an 11-year-old girl and I did not have a vocabulary to express how I was feeling, and for two men to think it was important to give a voice to that, to have girls go and watch that, it was very moving to me,” Mindy shared at the press conference.

Amy added, “I remember Pete saying, ‘I think you’re just going to cry all day today.’ And I was like, yes!”

FYI: Amy is wearing a Stella McCartney gown and Brian Atwood shoes at the premiere. Paris is wearing a Yousef Al-jasmi gown. Mindy is wearing a Salvador Perez gown, Jimmy Choo shoes, Judith Leiber clutch, and L’Dezen jewels at the premiere. She is wearing a Roksanda dress, Tamara Mellon shoes, and Kimberly McDonald jewels at the press conference and wore Alexander McQueen dress, YSL shoes, Swarovski clutch, and L’Dezen jewels at the photo call. Eva is wearing a Gabriela Cadena dress.
