Apparently spooky season isn't over just yet. On Wednesday (rather appropriately), stars of the forthcoming Netflix and Tim Burton series "Wednesday" gathered for a premiere in Los Angeles clad in their gothcore finest. From a sartorial perspective, they certainly did the Addams Family proud.

Jenna Ortega, who stars as titular character Wednesday Addams, wore a gothic bridal look from Versace's Spring 2023 collection, complete with a dramatic leg slit, lacy cutouts, a mesh veil, black nail polish and inky, dark-rimmed eye makeup.

Christina Ricci — who portrayed Wednesday in the 1991 and 1993 "Addams Family" films and appears in the Netflix series — also went for a spooky fashion moment. For the occasion, she chose sheer, spider-web-adorned look from Rodarte's Fall 2020 collection.

Striking shoulder looks were a dominant trend from the evening: Both Gwendoline Christie and Catherine Zeta-Jones chose ensembles with a focus on exaggerated structure, while Emma Myers and Joy Sunday both wore off-the-shoulder gowns.
