Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Jenny Packham – ‘Beyond the Lights’ Urbanworld Film Festival Opening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Jenny Packham - 'Beyond the Lights' Urbanworld Film Festival Opening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Beyond the Lights’ opening during the Urbanworld Film Festival held at SVA Theater on Thursday (September 18) in New York City.

Opting for an ethereal look, she wore a sugary pink Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2014 mini dress with a tulle overlay and sequin-embellished lace hemline.

As pretty as the dress is, and Gugu in it, it feels a tad too sugary for my liking.

I know I kinda really like this deep down, but I also have a searing toothache.

Styling-wise the look was flawless, with blown-out waves, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry and rose-gold sandals.

Which side of the fence are you on? Sweet or too sugary?

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Delpozo – ‘Beyond The Lights’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Delpozo - 'Beyond The Lights' Toronto

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the red carpet premiere of the film ‘Beyond the Lights’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on September 6 in Toronto, Canada.

For the occasion, Gugu wore a floral, wrap-front Delpozo gown with a checkered ruffle detail at the bodice.

I sense that this look might be polarizing in the comments, but Gugu wears the unique gown beautifully.

The color looks gorgeous against her beautiful skin and her perfect posture shows off the lines of the dress perfectly.

With her curls pulled back tightly, raspberry-stained lips and radiant skin, Gugu is a red carpet vision.

You may remember that Fan Bingbing wore this same dress earlier this year.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Etro – Root 100 2014 List Release Reception

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Etro - Root 100 2014 List Release Reception

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the Root 100 2014 List Release Reception on Tuesday (August 19) in Edgartown, Massachusetts.

Wearing an Etro loose-fit top with slim-leg pants, the paisley print in a palette of red, black and white stays true to what the house is most famous for – vibrant prints.

Paired with a bright-blue clutch and black pumps, I’m not as enamoured by the accessories as I am the outfit.

The hair and makeup, on the other hand: perfection.

Director Amma Asante was also looking very chic wearing a tweed strapless dress with black accessories.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Jason Wu - 2014 BET Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked demure on the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards yesterday at Nokia Plaza L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The actress wore a chic dress from Jason Wu’s Resort 2015 collection with white strappy Stuart Weitzman shoes, a Rauwolf clutch, Paige Novick earrings and ring, and a Derek Lam & Jamie Wolf for NYC Ballet ring.

The wholly monochromatic look is so chic and ladylike, and Gugu looks stunning.

A simple updo and subtle makeup are the perfect accents to this lovely look.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Martin Grant – ‘Belle’ London Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Martin Grant - 'Belle' London Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw returned to the red carpet for the ‘Belle’ London premiere, hosted today (June 5) at BFI Southbank in England.

The British actress put her pins on display, skipping the gown route in favour of a Martin Grant Spring 2013 black playsuit that featured architectural folded detail and pleating.

The secret here was that she didn’t overwhelm the look with exaggerated styling, accessorizing with golden pendant earrings by Carolina Bucci, a few bangles and Christian Louboutin black lace stilettos.

The ensemble boasted a fun, flirty and chic vibe, all tied up into one fashionable package that Gugu wore quite well. Would you agree?
