    "Scream" Premiered 25 Years Ago, And Here's What The Cast Wore To The Premiere

    It's nice that some of the Friends cast came out to support Courteney!

    Today marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere of Scream. Or, as I like to call it, the 25th anniversary of Drew Barrymore shattering my eardrums.

    Dinemsion Films

    So, I'd like to introduce you to a new series here on BuzzFeed: Here's What — And Dare I Ask Why? — The Cast Wore To The Red Carpet Premiere Of Their Movie™.

    (This inaugural edition is obvs for Scream.)

    Neve Campbell (who played final girl Sidney Prescott) wore this sheer navy blue moment:

    It's the matching blue nails for me. 

    She looked good! Homie in the back seemed to think so as well!

    Shoot your shot, my dude. 

    Then–it couple Courteney Cox (who played Gale Weathers) and David Arquette (who played Dewey Riley) wore a sleek black dress and a black-and-white ensemble, respectively:

    They don't make 'fits like David's anymore. 

    Skeet Ulrich (who played Billy Loomis) wore this suit, bucket hat, and non-prop cigarette:

    Smoking kills, y'all. 

    A real cig, to the premiere.

    Jamie Kennedy (who played Randy Meeks) wore this pinstripe suit and chartreuse collared shirt for some reason:

    Somehow, Jamie chewing gum on the red carpet is more offensive than Skeet smoking on the red carpet. 

    Matthew Lillard (who played Stu Macher) wore a silk shirt and silly attitude:

    Tongues out, fun's out! 

    Rose McGowan (who played Tatum Riley) wore a halter dress and a cool back tattoo:

    Rose really nailed the over-the-shoulder smolder. 

    The Exorcist's Linda Blair — who made a cameo in the film — wore this dope-as-heck Sgt. Pepper-esque jacket:

    Last time I saw her, she was puking up green sludge, so she could only go up from there! Actually, though, I am coveting this jacket. 

    Drew Barrymore (who played Casey Becker) wore this '90s couch pattern that doubled as a body-hugging column dress:

    The peace sign is ironic because this movie is anything but peaceful. 

    And NOW for the non-cast arrivals! Courteney's Friends costars came out to support her! David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc wore nondescript man outfits:

    They're not tryna steal the spotlight from Courteney! 

    Fellow ~friend~ Jennifer Aniston and then-beau Tate Donovan wore these casual 'fits that don't really warrant much more comment than that:

    Actually, I lied. One comment: TATE! WHITE PANTS? AFTER LABOR DAY?? Smh. 

    Minnie Driver wore...UGGS?? UGGS?????

    UGGGGSSSS???????????

    And also, no purse, since she's doing the "holding all the things in your hand because purses aren't big enough" thing that ALL purse carriers know too well:

    Are those...car keys??? 

    Patrick Dempsey wore more than his birthday suit, and I hate everything on top of it because of that:

    Who did he write the letter to? The world will never know. 

    Last, but not least, Reese Witherspoon wore this baller quarter-zip and bewildered expression:

    She just looks excited to be there, ya know?
