BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock! Red Carpet Roundup

BET's 'Black Girls Rock!' Red Carpet roundup

More stars took to the red carpet at BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’ special at NJ Performing Arts Center on Saturday (March 28) in Newark, New Jersey, donning a variety of looks to round out the evening.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ star wore a white-ish Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2015 asymmetric gown that had its very own split personality. The flowing Grecian lines on the one side were juxtaposed by a thigh-high slit and colourful spirograph print on the other. The daring purple lipstick was fully aligned with the patterned side of the dress.

Kat Graham: Pairing a black Barbara Bui top with a leggy Anthony Vaccarello skirt with a side train, Kat oozed sexy edginess. But I almost preferred the Cushnie et Ochs grommet dress she wore while announcing Cheryl Lynn’s performance.

Danielle Brooks: The ‘Orange is the New Black’ star also went for an all-black look, donning a plunge jumpsuit that could have used a hit of colour to take it to the next level. As presented, it was too one-note.

Claire Danes In Erdem – Variety’s Actors on Actors: Emmy Edition

Claire Danes In Erdem – Variety’s Actors on Actors Emmy Edition

Claire Danes joined Kerry Washington at Variety Studio’s Actors on Actors, presented by Autograph Collection Hotels, on Sunday (March 29) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore an Erdem Pre-Fall 2015 dress in a subtle yet impactful gray wool-silk check pattern—minus the lookbook’s preppy-mod white turtleneck and bow belt.

I’m sensing there could have been a slight fit issue with the plunge bodice at some angles, but the fresh ease of the styling which included a perfect blow-out, pink lip, and cerulean-blue pumps was on point.

Did you like her modified version of the frock?

Carmen Ejogo In Balmain – BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’

Carmen Ejogo In Balmain - BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!

Carmen Ejogo was also in attendance at BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock!’ special at NJ Performing Arts Center on Saturday (March 28) in Newark, New Jersey.

In keeping with what appears to be a black and white color theme of the evening, the ‘Selma’ star was onstage in a Balmain glittery mini with graphic, grid appeal, paired with chunky, block-heeled sandals that also enforced a retro spirit.

Putting a softer edge on all those squares, she wore her hair in voluminous curls and painted on a bold red lip.

It seems she may have skipped the red carpet before the event, but this little number certainly deserved plenty of time in the spotlight.

Did this look check the style box for you?

Zendaya Coleman In Fausto Puglisi – 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Zendaya Coleman In Fausto Puglisi - 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Zendaya Coleman was also at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards hosted at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (March 29) in Los Angeles, California.

Fresh from her appearance at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards the night before, the style chameleon yet again changed her stripes, debuting another new statement look.

Her Fausto Puglisi Fall 2015 mini-dress, with its bright green and hot-pink bodice and a skirt swirled in a graphic black-and-white motif, reflected the electric vision of the designer’s fall runway.

The blinged-out beading of the skirt was only matched by a selection of Carla Amorim and Pasquale Bruni jewels, along with hot-pink heels. Her hair story saw her go from a bowl-cut bob on Saturday to a lusciously feisty full mane here.

Few could wear this skin-baring, ostentatious number without it coming off in tasteless appeal, but leave it to Zendaya to rock it out with an event-appropriate fun spirit.

2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Plenty more PYTs were spotted on the orange carpet at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards at The Forum on Saturday (March 28) in Inglewood, California, each rocking their own interpretation of the youthful, fun dress code.

Willow Shields: Currently on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ the starlet traded the sequins and sparkle for a Self-Portrait Resort 2015 asymmetrical crop top with matching culottes in a striking, graphic square print. I love the directional shaping of this look—and that she accented the black-and-white ensemble with deep plum-coloured heels and clutch, which elevated it to the next level. Sideswept waves softened the stronger edge for a flirty finish.

Quvenzhane Wallis
: As the face of Armani Junior’s Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign, the starlet represented the brand well in an Armani Junior white cotton pique, sleeveless dress and matching jacket with pink and pastel-green detailing. Worn with white platform sneakers, the look struck a balance between sporty and girly styling, which she topped off with a high bun and matching pink lippie.

Debby Ryan: Debuting a majorly new mane, the actress swapped her signature flame-red locks for light lavender-gray strands. Adding to the colour story, she wore a Sachin & Babi Noir multihued, flirty frock with sheer detailing paired with a complementary Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch and sky-blue pumps. I could have done without the nose ring, but I actually love this bright, bold look from Debby—even if her hair completely has thrown me for a loop.
