Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini – ‘Concussion’ New York Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini - 'Concussion' New York Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Concussion’ premiere on Wednesday (December 16) in New York City.

The actress wore a Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Spring 2016 dress, which has been modified from the runway to include a lining and a slightly shorter skirt.

While some might consider this a bit mute for a movie premiere, I love how the actress continues to serve up a consistent level of class and sophistication.

I don’t think many could’ve sold this to me, but Gugu does with ease and finesse.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Concussion’ cast photocall at Crosby Street Hotel on Monday (December 14) in New York City.

I love how her Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini offers a fresh take on feminine florals which is wrapped up in this refined silhouette.

Keeping the look simple with nude pumps, lightly teased tresses and neutral makeup, the British actress never fails when it comes to delivering lady-like elegance.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry – The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry - The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at The Old Vic Theatre on Sunday (November 22) in London, England.

The British actress wore a Burberry green floral lace gown flowing with a trailing train which she styled with a box clutch.

I really wanted to love this as the colour it pretty, but I found the dress quite frumpy, ageing and perhaps better suited to someone with 15 years on Gugu.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 7th annual Governors Awards on Saturday (November 14) in Hollywood, California.

My go-to girl for lady-like elegance, opted to make a dramatic entrance wearing a Jason Wu Resort 2016 embellished lace dress.

The dazzling design – kept demure by the length – was styled with complementary rose-gold sandals and the ever reliable Edie Parker pearlized clutch.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Louis Vuitton – ‘Concussion’ AFI FEST 2015 Premiere

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the ‘Concussion’ premiere during AFI FEST 2015 on Tuesday (November 10) in Hollywood, California.

Looking as beautiful as ever, I think I’m buying into Gugu more than the alligator-skin Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 dress itself.

It cuts a fine figure, but does nothing to enhance her beauty.

In fact the most intriguing part of this look for me was the contrasting white side zipper detail.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Carolina Herrera – 8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Carolina Herrera - 8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Gugu Mbatha-Raw attended the 8th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (February 19) in Beverly Hills, California.

I love how the blue and black floral print lends a touch of whimsy to this impeccably tailored Carolina Herrera dress, which would work just as well strapless. In fact I think it would’ve worked even better strapless.

Gugu continues to be one of my faves for the same reason I love Emmy Rossum – unwavering commitment to ladylike dressing.

While the navy Louboutins are a tad snooze-worthy, with those gorgeous curls swept up into a chic updo and that pretty pink lip, sparkling Kwiat jewels and of course that gorgeous face, who’s looking at her shoes?

Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree

Alfre Woodard's Oscar's Sistahs Soiree
Many stars attended Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree by White Diamond Lustre, Elizabeth Taylor at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Wednesday (February 18) in Beverly Hills, California, where they showed off a range of different dress codes at the event—from casual to cocktail snazzy.

Kerry Washington
: The ‘Scandal’ actress brought a touch of spring to the soiree in her Sophia Kah look featuring a floral skirt with contrast paneling. I love the mix of the watercolour-inspired print with the bolder edge of the midnight-blue top and burnt-orange colour-blocked hem. Elegant waves and an oxblood lip balanced the look.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw
: The star’s bright smile brought vibrancy to this riff on the LBD. The Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2015 dress with embroidered neckline and sheer chiffon detailing was effortlessly chic, with Kwiat jewels elevating the look with a subtle sparkle.

Zoe Saldana: Looking radiant in ruffles, Zoe worked this deep blue Lanvin dress to her advantage. The black belting added the bit of figure-defining structure that the design required, with a spirited punch courtesy of the contrast dotted Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ pumps and her beautiful red lip.
