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?

    I really love this and the sweetness is really refreshing after loads of too short, color blocking and the moody autum colors coming up again.

    It is very sweet but I love this dress. Esp the neckline. I think she makes it work with the styling, from the hair to the shoes. She looks gorgeous!

    A bit doll-like but her beauty, poise and styling saves it for me. She is lovely and polished.

    I agree she looks good. The colour looks great on her, and she styled it well. I would definitely take this over tacky any day.

    The first thought that popped into my head when I saw her was Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”. J’adore, h2t.

    the hemline makes it too sweet

    Nothing wrong with being sweet in a crazy fashion world, where women exposes way too much. And the blush colour looks gorgeous against her skintone.

      +5 nice to see someone dress with class and like a lady. This doesn’t look too sweet to me.

    Agree. It’s too cutesy.

  15. Christine September 19, 2014 at 11:34 am #

    Not liking this. She can do way better

    I love the hair and make up and the blush pink but overall the dress is way too sweet for me.
