At the 2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala on Saturday (March 17) in LA, Beyonce may have been Queen B with her undulating golden goddess gown. But, there were still plenty of fashion-minded femmes making waves there—and adopting the ‘Black Panther’ theme via their Wakanda-inspired looks.
Tina Knowles: Like mother, like daughter. Bey’s mom and Wearable Art Gala co-founder also went down a golden-bronze path—granted, a more subdued one—in this Jean-Louis Sabaji Spring 2018 Couture satin creation that was bedecked in a feathered cape for dramatic effect.
Halle Bailey: This Yanina Spring 2017 Couture white trumpet gown was a revelation on Halle. I loved the exaggerated silhouette and the intricacy of the black embroidery.
Chloe Bailey: As the sisters generally coordinate their looks, Chloe also wore a dress from the Yanina Spring 2017 Couture collection. I think it’s safe to say Halle’s had a bit more effective impact, as this sheer overlay design translated a bit maturely for the young entertainer.
La La Anthony: Reflecting the night’s theme, La La’s custom Sergio Hudson velvet gown featured traditional African mud cloth sleeves and fit her hourglass silhouette like a glove.
