The Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ on Monday (February 26) brought out the storybook romance in many lovely ladies.
Tessa Thompson: The ‘Westworld actress’ oozed retro elegance in an embellished Miu Miu dress. It’s clear she has considered the entire look, but I must say that the Judith Leiber clutch takes away from the diamantes on the gown. The Irene Neuwirth and David Yurman jewels were more harmonizing.
Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress was a beauty blooms in a Michael Kors Resort 2018 dress. The pleated style has a romantic fairy tale quality, but her styling gives it a fashion-forward finish. A Tyler Ellis clutch, pale pink boots and her cornrows elevate the look.
Oprah Winfrey: Va-va-voom! The multi-hyphenate looked sensational in a deep blue Atelier Versace number. She may not have gone the princess route, but I don’t think anyone will be complaining about this sultry number.
Issa Rae: I am very much in favour of the mood of the ‘Insecure’ actress’s ensemble, so it pains me that it wasn’t as successful as it could have been with the too-long skirt and wrinkles. There is such power and strength so it could have been a major moment.
Ava DuVernay: Another one who fell victim to a too-long skirt, the producer wore a custom Cushnie et Ochs dress. Given this was made for her, I would have expected the tailoring to be flawless. I will try to overlook it as the rich pink hue and wraparound neckline have an elegant effect.
Mindy Kaling: The new mom glowed in a custom Greta Constantine gown. The rich purple colour and fit are sublime and truly showcase her radiant beauty. A Tyler Ellis clutch and statement earrings rounded out the look.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw: The actress brought some light to the red carpet in a white Vionnet gown. The Grecian influence is clear, but it’s the rainbow banding around the waist that enlivens the look, projecting a sunny optimism.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell: The former ‘Friday Night Lights’ actress looked sweet yet sultry in a Missoni dress with David Yurman jewels and Katy Perry shoes. It was a quieter look, but it had sweet charm from the translucent pink fabric and billowing sleeves.
Angela Bassett: The actress broke away from the gowns, donning a shimmering Greta Constantine vest and trousers. I’m enchanted with the sleek disco fabrication, but think the proportions of the top let her down a bit. With such a sensational figure, methinks a more fitted top would have worked more in her favour.
Storm Reid: The young actress continued to demonstrate her advanced fashion credentials in a custom Coach ensemble paired with a Coach ‘Dinky’ bag. I am charmed with the riff on the classic gown. It has a fun picked-from-the-costume-box quality thanks to the layering, yet it still has such style.
