Lights, camera, action. For its fortieth edition, the Denver Film Festival brought a fantastic run of screenings, discussions, parties and, of course, red-carpet premieres to the Mile High City. On November 9, for the festival's Big Night Out, the DFF rolled out the red carpet outside of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House for the premiere of Molly's Game, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. Although Sorkin was running late and missed the advance festivities, he made the discussion following the film. But Denver Film Festival Director Britta Erickson never disappoints with her own red-carpet appearances.
In 2015, Erickson wore a white Alexander Wang dress with silver Sophia Webster heels for the premiere of Michael Moore's documentary Where to Invade Next; in 2016 she wore a black lace Valentino dress for the premiere of future Oscar winner La La Land. This year, Erickson opted for a shimmery metallic rose-gold jumpsuit from Porridge, a brand carried at Anthropology in Cherry Creek. Her snakeskin booties are from Free People, another Cherry Creek staple.

"It's a fantastic film," Erickson says of Molly Bloom. "Molly's life was so fascinating, and Aaron Sorkin was on top of adapting her memoir so well — it's snappy dialogue, it's fast-paced, and it's quite an amazing story that would be unbelievable for most people, but we all know that it really did happen to Molly. As his directorial debut, it's amazing, and Jessica Chastain is excellent. "
Also excellent: Erickson's savvy fashion choices...especially when others decided to stroll the red carpet in jeans, hoodies and, yes, even sneakers.
Like Erickson, always stay inspired and stylish on the red carpet, Denver.
