Riley Keough showed courage as she stepped out for a screening of Zola on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
The actress, 32, looked ready, as the first anniversary of her brother Benjamin’s death approached.
She was stunned in a stripped-down red top, showing off her torso underneath, which she paired with a chic black blazer and matching skirt.

Lisa’s daughter Marie Presley and granddaughter of Elvis Presley wore her red locks loosely in waves around her face.
She looked flawless with a peachy complexion, pink eye shadow, striking black mascara on her lashes, and a pink tint on her lips.
She was joined by Ben Smith-Petersen, Jeremy O. Harris, director Janicza Bravo, AZiah King and Colman Domingo.
Zola, which hits theaters on June 30, is a comedy-drama film based on A’Ziah King’s 2015 viral Twitter thread “telling a pretty true story about a trip to Florida with another exotic dancer named Jessica,” according to Vautour.
It comes after the star opened up about her grief a year after her brother Benjamin Keough passed away in July 2020.

Despite her “rough days,” Riley tries to feel all of her emotions to help her deal with her pain.
She told InStyle, “I really try to be there consciously and not use anything as kind of an escape, and be aware of when I’m doing it. [I’m] usually try to be grateful for everything right now.
‘[I’m] trying to operate in love, and keep my heart open, and give and receive love. And not in a woo-woo way, because I’m having a really tough day, and all kinds of pain and suffering and stuff.
“But I think when you realize that’s part of it and your expectation isn’t just to feel joy. It was a real change for me in finding those times and things to smile about.
Benjamin, 27, tragically committed suicide last summer in Calabasas, California.

A month after his death, Riley paid tribute to his brother by having a tattoo on his collarbone with the inscription “Benjamin Storm”.
She shared a photo of her tattoo on Instagram Stories and wrote: “Mornings are the hardest. I forget you’re gone. I can’t cry because of the fear of never stopping. Pain which is new to me.
‘You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of.
‘Pure light. Little brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness of my life. Soul mate. Protective. Too sensitive for this harsh world.
Riley later revealed that she wished she could have spent more time with her brother.
She shared a snap of them on Instagram, writing: “Two months without you. I would give anything for 1 more minute with you little brother.”
