Can somebody tell these people that they’re not allowed to look this good? Not only is the Aladdin cast stunning (obvi), they’re apparently genies when it comes to fashion as well. Sometimes we forget that in spite of his past as a sometimes ’90s fashion victim, Will Smith has incredible style game and his younger co-stars, Naomi Scott and Canadian Mena Massoud, are serving looks too.
The cast kicked off their world press tour in Paris this week with a Gala Screening at Le Grand Rex (NBD, just the biggest cinema in Europe) and we’d like to take the next few minutes to just appreciate it. Seriously, if this is what we’re seeing on night one, we don’t even know what to expect as they take on Europe.
In anticipation of the movie’s May 24 release, here are all the fire looks from the Paris screening:
The ‘Aladdin’ cast look like actual royalty at the Paris gala screening
The golden trioThat’s the money shot right there. The Genie, Will Smith, with his Aladdin and Jasmine played by Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, respectively. Just look at that stylish group. People might not be fully on-board with Will’s blue Genie aesthetic in the film but we can’t complain about this casual chic look. Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images For Disney
Prince Ali and Princess JasmineWe’re definitely ready to root for these two as a couple for the duration of a feature-length film. Mena was looking less Aladdin and more Prince Ali in this striking Givenchy ensemble and Naomi was serving sporty princess vibes in her Off-White top and ballskirt combo.

Make way for the PrincessWill knows what’s up. This was his chosen position when posing with Naomi and we agree it was the only appropriate way to approach royalty. He may be an all-powerful genie, but he knows how to pay respect.Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images For Disney
Do it for the gramOf course Will is documenting all of this for his YouTube and Instagram. If you’re not following Will’s journeys through life, we would highly recommend it. Upon his arrival in Paris, he posted an Instagram story of himself trying the local cuisine (i.e. escargot). You better believe he said, “I’m gonna escar go for it” before, you know, going for it.

Parisian realnessDirector Guy Ritchie was also in attendance with his wife, model Jacqui Ainsley. Her colourful Chanel ensemble (very Paris) has us hoping that we’ve actually turned the corner into spring. Make it happen, Jacqui! Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images For Disney
The real-life Princess JasmineNo, Jasmine Tookes isn’t in the movie, but the Victoria’s Secret angel took full advantage of her name and attended the premiere anyway. She’s really giving us that modern Princess Jasmine vibe and the ornate (magic?) lamp doesn’t hurt either. Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Disney
The Father of modern Disney musicYou might not know Alan Menken’s name but you’ve definitely heard his music. The long-time Disney composer has written most of the Disney tunes you know and love including the music for Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tangled, Hercules, Pocahontas and Beauty and the Beast. Yeah, he’s kind of a big deal. Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images For Disney
