ides of march film permiere Ellen Barkin Hilary Rhoda

The George Clooney-directed political drama, Ides of March, premiered Wednesday night in NYC, and all eyes were on stunning stars Evan Rachel Wood and Ellen Barkin.

The 24-year-old actress, who plays intern Molly in the film, looked ravishing in a burgundy leather Gucci dress with matching felt floppy hat and Ferragamo alligator pumps. The seemingly ageless Miss Barkin also wowed in a body-hugging black dress, paired with a cardigan and matching heels.

The film stars George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Marisa Tomei, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Giamatti and centers on a staffer for a newbie presidential candidate (Clooney), who gets a crash course on dirty politics during his stint on the campaign trail, according to IMDB.
