One minute you’re in bed with no place to go, and the next, you are spoiled for choice with lots of juicy invitations for events. That’s what happens when you step into the last quarter of the year—red carpet events, weddings, birthday parties, press appearances, and an exhaustive lineup of holidays events. That was the case for stylish Black ladies last week, and per usual, they interpreted their ensembles to fit the occasion and by no means lost themselves.
Ever thought what if beauty had a speed limit? Thank goodness it doesn’t, if not, Gabrielle Union would be fined for glowing and then glowing some more. Apparently, the only tickets she’s getting would be to attend high-end events, and her wardrobe seems up to par. The star activated princess mode in a beguiling Maison Valentino ball dress as she graced The Royal Albert Hall for The Fashion Awards. Top Model Jourdan Dunn placed the red hue where it should be; at the top of the color chart in a red Andrea Brocca spiral rose number for the Fashion Awards. The lady chose red, and it blessed her.
They say elegance is an inbuilt trait that exudes as an obvious aura, and when Nollywood actress Rita Dominic steps out, she embodies this fact. For the Africa Movie Academy Awards, the star effortlessly stunned in a floral Studio by S.B. Youme gown teamed with her signature face card that never declines, and a ponytail hairstyle which complemented the entire look.
The styles shared by Black celebrities and top fashion influencers last week were nothing short of chic, edgy, and glamorous, and it’s safe to say that we are, as usual, living vicariously through them. Black style queens.
