Queen Latifah is jovial as she shows off her slimmer figure at the premiere of her Lifetime original movie, Steel Magnolias, held Wednesday at the Paris Theater in NYC.
This contemporary update of the 1989 drama is about the importance of female friendship as six women support each other through the triumphs and tragedies of life.

“Well, we’re smarter, we’re sexier, we’re squishier … and that feels good! [laughs]”
The Grammy-winning actress doesn’t miss a beat, and heads inside to join her co-stars, including Cosby Show mom Phylicia Rashad, before hitting the afterparty held across the street at The Plaza Hotel.
