The cast of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out to campaign for their latest film in equally compelling fashion. Directed by Tim Burton, the movie provides a glimpse into a fantasy world, not dissimilar to the setting for the premiere: the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City. In addition to the cast and crew, guests including Zac Efron, Alysia Reiner, and Patti LuPone walked the red carpet lining the Fifth Avenue address before taking the elevator up to the eighth floor, perhaps more commonly known 10022-Shoe, for the after-party, where Café SFA chef Alex Reyes served up unexpected bites on trays in theme-appropriate winged shapes.

For her part, actress Lauren McCrostie endorsed a conscious approach to eveningwear in a plunging creation by the rising label Vaute. “It’s like haute, but it’s spelled with a ‘V’ because it’s vegan haute couture,” she said of the eco-friendly frock, which was made right in New York and sourced from recycled plastic bottles. Echoing the transformative power of fashion brought to life in film was costar Samuel L. Jackson. “Fantasy always involves a lot of frills,” Jackson said. “The satin, the bows, the tweeds, the plaids or tartans, the buckles on the shoes—all those things that are accouterment but that we might not appreciate.” The Academy Award–nominated actor made quite the case in Giorgio Armani—when Jackson asked photographers if he was blocking the view of the Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 fashion, which filled the Saks Fifth Avenue window displays behind him, one quipped, “You are fashion!”

Ella Purnell, whose character wears a major pair of towering platforms in the film (now included among the Saks Fifth Avenue window display), also turned the red carpet into her own personal runway in a silk faille Dior gown paired with metallic sandals. “The shoes had to sell the fact that she’s weighed down because she’s lighter than air,” costume designer Colleen Atwood explained of the inspiration behind the scene-stealing accessory audiences will recall from the trailer. But as dreamy a notion as custom creepers are, which are said to boast their own magical powers, the reality was somewhat different. “I’d put on my dress and I’d feel like a princess, like a fairy, and then look down and see these huge bricks of shoes, and say, ‘Oh, there’s the Tim Burton part of this,’ ” Purnell said with a laugh. “But you get used to them after about six months.”
