The Ghostbusters may have been a ragtag bunch of crimefighters, but just like their characters on the big screen, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are bringing the same take no prisoners ethos to the red carpet in looks that prove they’re more than ready to save the world this summer. In fact, the four actresses all look so good at Tuesday’s Elle event held in their honor, they may have finally answered the age-old question, who you gonna call? Oh, just four of the best dressed funny ladies in town.

The comedians demonstrated that they don’t just kill ghosts on-screen, they also slay in real life, bringing the glamour at an event in Los Angeles held in celebration of their newly released covers for Elle‘s “Women in Comedy” issue. Melissa McCarthy once again displayed her love of an eye-catching ensemble in a custom made, bright, summer-y pink cocktail dress by Judy B Swartz (who also styled this look) with flattering pleats around the waist and a very on-trend bell sleeve, accessorized with a surprising pair of printed pumps from Vince Camuto.

Her three co-stars also proved they weren’t afraid of no ghosts in some seriously glamorous red carpet looks. Kristen Wiig reconfirmed her fashion plate status in a silk matching printed blouse and trouser set with black floral appliqués across the shoulders and collar. Her hair is also a rich brunette, the darkest shade she’s rocked in a while.

Leslie Jones hit every trend on the head, while also keeping things edgy, in a leather jacket, statement necklace, a fringe-covered skirt and black Vince Camuto booties, and Kate McKinnon went for a classic and simple silhouette in a black bodycon dress that laced up the sides and ruffled black heels.

But really, these Ghostbusters stars’ approach to red carpet dressing can best be summarized in the immortal words of Bill Murray from the original film: “We came, we saw, we kicked its a**!”

Which lady’s premiere look was your favorite? Are you going to go see the movie?
