The rain stayed away in London long enough for the likes of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter to shine on the purple carpet for the Dark Shadows premiere.
Forget the tux - somehow Johnny manages to pull off this look effortlessly.
He plays the main character Barnabus. Chatting on the purple carpet about his character he described him as: "A reluctant vampire, a very elegant 18th century, well-bred man who was cursed and locked into a box."
And there you have it.
See the other stars who attended the big night...
