Aja Naomi King was one among many stars that attended the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala on Thursday (February 23), in Beverly Hills, California.
Donning a whimsical Michael Costello Collection 17 Part 2 gown, the actress certainly made a statement walking down the red carpet.
With so many bold elements in one dress, there is a lot to take in here.
As radiant as Aja looks, this gown is just too busy to work in her favour. Perhaps without the sheer balloon sleeves or deep cut-out, this look would have fared a lot better.
I’m glad she kept the styling simple with a neutral makeup palette and accessories.
How do you feel about this look?
