Nia Long In Nicole Miller – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Nia Long In Nicole Miller - NAACP Image Awards 2014Nia Long was also at the NAACP Image Awards 2014 on Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

However, the actress and three-time NAACP Image Award winner sadly wasn’t projecting the exact fashion image I would have wished for the evening.

Yes, her Nicole Miller halter gown was rendered in a truly splendid shade of jade green. But the fit of the open-back dress, with a wraparound tie at the waist, could have used some work—especially around the loose bust area.

She accessorized Brian Atwood heels, alongside a Salvatore Ferragamo nude basket-weave clutch and Danielle Queller earrings.

Were you green with envy over the colour of this look, or just distracted by the silhouette?

2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

We’ve seen a roundup of the men, so here is a roundup of the ladies who attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o.

Meryl Streep: Like Julia Roberts – her red carpet pal – and Matthew McConaughey, Meryl opted for sunglasses on the red carpet, much to my chagrin. The actress wore a Stella McCartney embroidery-detailed navy dress with flared sleeves styled with black tights, Ferragamo pumps and a fold-over Louboutin clutch. I’m rarely impressed with her red carpet looks and this is no exception. I wish Helen Mirren’s stylist would take Meryl under his wing.

Oprah Winfrey: The TV host wore an emerald green Azzedine Alaia dress, belted at the waist to accentuate her hourglass shape, which she styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Abigail Breslin: Her pastel-grey Badgley Mischka gown makes her look much older and the colour is washing her out. The only thing I like here is the hair and makeup.

‘Best Man Holiday’ New York Premiere

'Best Man' New York Premiere

Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long both took to the red carpet at last night’s ‘The Best Man Holiday’ screening in New York City.

Sanaa Lathan: The actress chose a teal-hued Amanda Wakeley number for the occasion, letting the geometric cutouts along the neckline and visible darting down the bodice do all the figure-flattering work. She accessorized with black peep-toe Brian Atwood pumps, Brumani jewels, and an Inge Christopher clutch; then finished with Farrah Fawcett-esque hair and berry lips.

Nia Long: Opting for a similar body-con silhouette, Nia selected a long-sleeved Cushnie Et Ochs LWD. To complement the crisp, sexy look, she wore embellished Saint Laurent heels, a Giuseppe Zanotti clutch, loose waves, and a purple-red lip colour.

2010 BET Awards – Nia Long In Gucci

Most Graphic Award
Sporting her trademark cropped hairstyle, Nia Long would’ve stood out on the red carpet at the 2010 BET Awards.

The actress opted for a Gucci Spring 2010 ikat dress.

The strapless dress was accented with silver harness details around the waist, as she paired her dress with a studded clutch and those darn YSL Trib Two heels.

This is such a cute look, but I really would’ve preferred the runway heels with this look and maybe an orange clutch.
