The actresses were joined by their co-star Charles Melton, along with Haynes, for the photocall, which came one day after the film’s Los Angeles premiere at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
For a second day in a row, Portman appeared to go solo and not wear her wedding ring on the red carpet, in the wake of cheating allegations waged against her husband Benjamin Millepied in recent months.
While she opted to keep the accessories to a minimum, Portman showed off her petite figure and fashion sense by stepping out in a sequin miniskirt that glistened under the lights of the event, and a black form-fitted top.

The miniskirt was predominantly black and silver, but the garment also had touches of purple, white and burgundy.
The Jerusalem, Israel native, who grew up in Washington, D.C., Connecticut and Long Island, New York, also wore a purple jacket over her shoulder at times during the photocall.
Rounding out her overall look, the Oscar-winning actress also donned a pair of black open-toe heels, and had her dark brown locks styled long with some natural waves and a part in the middle.
After striking a number of poses by herself, Portman was then joined on the red carpet by Moore, who was decked out in an all-black ensemble consisting of a long skirt and a matching short-sleeve top that hugged her fit figure.
She also wore a pair of black open-toe heels, and had her ginger tresses flowing long and straight a few inches down her back with a center part.
Moore, a Fort Bragg, North Carolina native who moved around the U.S. a lot as the child of a military father, would also pose for photographers by herself.
At one point, Haynes and Melton joined in on the red carpet fun, with the actor dressed in black high-water pants, a gray sweater and black combat-style boots, and the filmmaker wearing blue jeans, a black button-down shirt and matching sneakers.
In May December, Portman plays Elizabeth Berry, a famous actress preparing for a role who travels to Savannah to meet Gracie (Julianne Moore), a character loosely inspired by Mary Kay Letourneau, according to Variety. During her stay, Elizabeth develops ambivalent feelings towards Gracie and her 30-something husband Joe, with whom she started having an unlawful relationship when he was 13.

Oscar gold: Portman won her Best Actress Academy Award for Black Swan (2010), while Moore scored her Best Actress trophy for her performance in Still Alice (2014)
Directed by Todd Haynes from a screenplay by Samy Burch that’s based on a story by Burch and Alex Mechanik, the black comedy-drama film also stars Melton, along with D. W. Moffett, Piper Curda, Elizabeth Yu, Gabriel Chung, Cory Michael Smith and Lawrence Arancio.
The previous day, both Portman and Moore attended the Los Angeles premiere of May December at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
The Black Swan star donned a black strapless dress that featured a bold feather embellishment, a pair of black ankle strap heels, and her hair styled long and straight.
And like she did on Friday, Portman was again noticeably not wearing her wedding ring, amid all the talk of Millepied’s affair with climate activist Camille Etienne.

Their marriage was the subject of an article in the French publication, Voici, which claimed the French dancer and choreographer, 46, had an affair with the then 25-year-old.
‘It was short-lived and it is over,’ a source said when the news of the cheating broke earlier this year.
The actress has been seen without her wedding ring a number of times since then, and though there were rumors of a separation, the couple has been out together as they parent their two kids over the course of the last six months.
May December, which has received praise from critics, was released in select theaters in the U.S on November 17, before it starts to stream on Netflix on December 1.
