8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the other looks from the 8th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Thursday (February 19) in Beverly Hills, California. Sadly it doesn’t include Lupita Nyong’o, who wore Peter Pilotto ‘Hendrix’ dress but decided to skip the red carpet.

Teyonah Parris: The ‘Mad Men’ actress is one person you can never miss on a red carpet. She may not be wearing a fabulous gown, but here she hits us with a bright emerald hue and modern suiting design by Kimberly Goldson. Factor in that studded clutch and lace pumps and we have yet another winning look from the actress.

Chanel Iman: As we know, Chanel loves a gown even more than Teyonah does, so even though this was a luncheon I was still shocked she didn’t stick to the tried and true. The model wore a sporty striped Jonathan Simkhai Pre-Fall 2015 racer dress styled with braided Brian Atwood ‘Olive’ sandals and a Rodo clutch.

Samira Wiley: Forgoing the ladies-who-lunch frock, the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ actress served up her own style of luncheon loveliness wearing an Azede Jean-Pierre Spring 2015 crop top and trousers featuring decorative embroidery.

Teyonah Parris In Amato by Furne One – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

46th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Arrivals
Teyonah Parris swept onto the scene at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards on Friday (February 6), hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress literally owned the red carpet, shutting it down in her glorious Amato by Furne One blush-nude gown.

This confection was a work of art with its shimmering embellished plunge neckline, hourglass silhouette, and stunning sheer overlay.

I love Teyonah’s interpretation of the design, as she twirled the tulle and worked the dress to its full advantage without a hint of try-hard. Her signature, bold updo also added a beautifully unexpected edge.

This look can be summed up in one word: Breathtaking.

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Red Carpet Roundup

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees from Elle’s 21st annual Women In Hollywood celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, California.

Renee Zellweger: I honestly didn’t recognise Renee. It’s the hair that threw me: for such a long time the actress has been perfect from the neck down, never paying much attention to her hair; however on this occasion her golden locks were teased into lovely waves. Dressed in a Carolina Herrera LBD with lace sleeves, the look was styled with gold accessories for a festive flourish.

Bella Thorne: The teen star wore a mustard-hued Gucci Fall 2014 dress styled with a mish-mash of accessories including nude peep-toes and a black clutch. I think black sandals would’ve worked better here.

Liberty Ross: The model wore a vintage Versace black dress with a plunging neckline and sexy open back, plus a tan leather panel around the waist which is throwing me off liking this look. Most bizarre addition. Especially when you see it from the back.

Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano – 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris In Christian Siriano - 2014 Emmy Awards

Teyonah Parris blew me away on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California, and I’m sure she will do the same to you.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress has always had a love for colour and print, and this Christian Siriano lime silk overlay gown with a striped bodice from the Resort 2015 collection has it ALL.

Colour, personality, vibrancy and a fun-loving spirit that will etch this look in my memory forever.

Styled with a Carrera y Carrera ring, drop earrings, a topknot and that infectious smile, she was easily of my favourites on this red carpet.

What a breath of fresh air. I’m gonna sit back and soak this one in.

Teyonah Parris In Philip Armstrong - ‘Mad Men’ Season 7 LA Premiere

Teyonah Parris joined her co-stars January Jones, Kiernan Shipka, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks and Jessica Pare on the red carpet for the ‘Mad Men’ Season 7 premiere at the ArcLight Cinemas on Wednesday (April 2) in Hollywood, California.

Working a directional faux-hawk, the actress dazzled in a tropical shade of blue, wearing a Philip Armstrong Spring 2014 crepe pencil dress emboldened with an embroidered collar.

The figure-hugging frock was styled with a cool magenta lip, L’enfant Terrible silver-and-nude sandals and a silver Tyler Alexandra clutch.

As always, very well played.
