The wait is finally over.
After a summerlong hiatus, NBC’s hit drama series “This Is Us” returned for its much-anticipated second season last night. The show’s all-star ensemble cast stepped out in style to celebrate the premiere at a party held at NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles.
Mandy Moore, who plays matriarch Rebecca Pearson, dazzled in a shimmery multicolored Rosie Assoulin dress, trimmed with a floral strap. She topped off her elegant look with an Edie Parker clutch and Sophia Webster’s navy blue Rosalind evening sandals, which feature crystal-studded heels for a touch of sparkle.
Actor Milo Ventimiglia — Moore’s on-screen husband, Jack — went for a more casual vibe, dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans, which he paired with well-worn black boots. Known for his fun and quirky red carpet style, co-star Chris Sullivan (who plays Toby) rocked gray jeans and an embellished blazer, along with a few cool accessories, including black oxfords, a flatcap and a tie.
Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate Pearson, went all-black in a custom Kiyonna wrap dress and simple Stuart Weitzman sandals, while her TV brother, Justin Hartley (Kevin Pearson), looked dapper in a light gray suit accessorized with a colorful plaid tie and tan burnished leather monk-strap shoes.
While the adults made a strong showing, it was the youngest stars of “This Is Us” who stole the spotlight on the red carpet. Ten-year-old Parker Bates, who plays a young Kevin, showed off his cool fashion sense in a blue velvet Appaman suit and white K-Swiss kicks. Lonnie Chavis (young Randall Pearson) looked sleek and sophisticated in white jeans, a white button-down shirt and a navy blazer. He added a little extra flair with a pair of white sneakers adorned with glittery tigers on the vamp. Mackenzie Hancsicsak (young Kate Pearson) looked adorable in a ballet-inspired tulle-skirted dress by Bentley + Lace, which she paired with custom, butterfly-embellished high-top sneakers.
Hancsicsak’s tweenaged co-star, Eris Baker (Tess Pearson), appeared to channel Michael Jackson in a glittery sequined jacket and leather pants, topped with a pair of black combat boots featuring white laces printed with inspiring words such as “unstoppable” and “ambitious.” Nine-year-old Faithe Herman (Annie Pearson) charmed the crowd in a pretty long-sleeved floral dress and patent leather ballet flats with bows on the heel.
