Actress Lauren London was front-and-center on the red carpet before the premiere of her new movie. The YBF chick worked the carpet in a steel gray House of CB dress and black sandals. Cute look.

"Shades of Blue" actress Jennifer Lopez, looking amazing in Cushnie et Ochs midi dress, was the supportive girlfriend as she was on her man Casper Smart's arm on the carpet.

We caught up with Casper and he told us that he wanted to stand out from everyone else in the film, so he asked director Billie Woodruff if he could ride a Hover Board the entire movie. At first, Billie wasn’t feeling it. But after some convincing, he let Casper ride the Hover Board in the film and it was a success. Ha!
