Mary J. Blige In Elie Saab – 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival

Mary J. Blige picked up the ‘Breakthrough Performance’ award for ‘Mudbound’ at the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 2) in Palm Springs, California.

The singer/actress received her award wearing an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 celadon, fully embellished gown with Juliet long sleeves.

My belief was that we were going to see a more darker, edgier side to her style for awards season with custom Balmain and Alexander Wang pieces, so this softer, daintier look came as a pleasant surprise.

I adore the beadwork and the bold shoulder detail, however, I would’ve preferred the velvet waist band over the bow ribbon detail.

Jewelry from Chopard’s ‘L’Heure Du Diamant Collection’ and ‘High Jewelry Collection’ rounded out her look.

    Love it on the model, what a gorgeous dress!

    No. It seems so bulky on her. Not a fan of the sickly color. And the earrings chosen just made the look even fussier.

    I think you have to be built like a model to pull this gown off. And the original belt is a must.

    Gorgeous. No complaints here.

    As charming as the phrase “Juliet sleeve” is, this is a no from me. It looks like a fantastical couch.

    90% of times her looks are so forced. This time was not an exception.

    I’m liking this dress on Mary. I think she looks elegant and it flatters her figure. The wrong choice of earrings though in my opinion.

    This looks dated.

    I like the color but I’m afraid that’s all I like here, really not a fan of the design…
