This week is Wednesday star walked the red carpet ahead of the premiere of the sixth installment of the slasher series, Scream. Ortega arrived at the show on Monday night wearing a black and white couture look by Jean Paul Gaultier. The structured shirtdress – which featured a white bustier sleeveless top layered under a black structured blazer – was designed by Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing.

That You the star also apologized to Rousteing for getting a Sharpie on the couture dress he designed. “#imsosorryolivier @olivier_rousteing” she said.

“The spot is actually a blue confirmed tick,” one fan wrote.
“Sharpie stain is a moment fr,” said another.
Meanwhile, the official Instagram account for Scream film aptly commented, “How well does the red carpet hide bloodstains?”
Ortega, who will make her Saturday Night Live host debut on March 11, recently opened up about her dating life and explained why she’s not in a relationship right now. In an interview with Elle for the magazine’s “Impact Issue,” Ortega revealed why she’s not currently dating anyone.
“Maybe I’m too obsessed with my work, but the thought of relationships stresses me out,” she said. “And also to be so vulnerable with someone and to have to get to know someone so well and have someone see you for all that you are.”
“I hate being googoogaga over a boy,” she added. “I think it’s secretly a pride. It’s a problem with a lot of female characters that a lot of them are guy-oriented, or what they express or feel is based on a guy’s position and a guy’s story.”
