Angela Bassett In Naeem Khan – ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Paris Premiere

The Eiffel Tower provided a beautiful backdrop for the world premiere of ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ in Paris on Thursday (July 12), with Angela Bassett in attendance.

As you all know I worship Angela, but I couldn’t get fully on board with her latest look from Naeem Khan’s Fall 2018 collection.

There is no doubt that at 59-years-old that she’s rocking the hell out of this bedazzled jumpsuit.

But one can’t ignore the gaping hole/undone zipper which appears on both sides of this look.

77th Annual Peabody Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were a number of beauties at the 77th Annual Peabody Awards on Saturday (May 19) in New York City. They joined Rachel Brosnahan.

Yvonne Orji: The ‘Insecure’ actress opted for sophisticated separates. She wore a Naeem Khan blazer, Carmen Marc Valvo trousers, a Theory top and Calvin Klein shoes. The interplay of textures is exciting, but it still presents a harmonious finish thanks to the monochromatic colour palette and swirling lines.

Alexis Bledel: Making a statement in bright colour, the ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ actress was outfitted in Red Valentino. With so much going on, she was wise to stick with black accessories but the heavy boots are too harsh against the look and too casual for the event.

Issa Rae: Shimmering in Thom Browne, she showed a flirty side. Festooned with feathers, as opposed to fringing, increased the ethereal romance. The way the trim seamlessly blends with the silver metallic fabric shows a deft hand.

Madeline Brewer In Naeem Khan – ‘Braid’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

As the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival continues in New York City, Madeline Brewer was at the ‘Braid’ premiere on Sunday (April 22).

This Naeem Khan Fall 2018 bustier-style design was made more appropriate for the Tribeca vibe and the current season once it was shortened and worn without the decorative shawl piece.

For that reason, even with those sizable platform shoes, the look came across with an effortless gloss.

This chartreuse-green colour isn’t the easiest to wear, but I love how the metallic-embroidered, floral number radiated against the actress’s flame-red locks.

Brian Atwood shoes and Jennifer Meyer jewelry completed her look.

Tessa Thompson In Naeem Khan – ‘Annihilation’ LA Premiere

For me, Tessa Thompson was the star attraction on the red carpet for the ‘Annihilation’ premiere on Tuesday (February 13) in Westwood, California, where she joined Janelle Monae, Gina Rodriguez and Natalie Portman.

We all know Tessa as a bit of a fashion daredevil who likes to take risks, but much like the ‘Thor’ premiere, she showcased her softer side for this premiere.

Soft, yet still oozing with plenty of sartorial grace.

My reaction was two-fold:

1. Thankful she opted to line the gown and;

2. Thankful she didn’t strip any of the beguiling details from this look.

It’s not easy to make a girlie girl gown look cool, but Tessa managed to nail it once again.

Angela Bassett In Naeem Khan – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

Angela Bassett joined her co-star Danai Gurira on the red carpet for Marvel Studios’ world premiere of ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

I got a shiver down my spine when I saw the actress in this fringed Naeem Khan Spring 2017 jumpsuit as I adore the colour against her skin, and how the Maasai-inspired neckline gives the look some African flavour which was amped up with her accessories which included Vendorafa yellow gold cuffs and a custom-made Thalé Blanc clutch with a yellow gold and Swarovski embedded panther head.

The only slight downside is that the jumpsuit is complete sheer, which was very apparent when Ms Bassett let the fringe fly.
