2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala Red Carpet Roundup

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.

    Halle looks BDOTW worthy, imo.

    Halle Bailey looks stunning. I adore that dress. Im surprised it didn’t get more love here. Its a BDOTW potential for certain, in my eyes.

    This event is such a joke. The whole concept of “wearable art” is so pretentious to begin with, but then no-one is able to even carry off a look that lives up to this promise. With the exception of Halle, every one of the looks (especially by Beyonce and her mum) has reminded me of those internet memes where someone has bought something online and it turns out looking nothing like the pictures. Just a tacky-fest all round.

    Tina’s dress is too tight so it’s losing the sleekness in the look-book photo. Sized up just a bit, it would have looked great.

    LaLa looks like she’s about to pass out..relax girl. The sisters look amazing, and this is a personal best for Tina.

    I think all of the ladies look amazing!

    No to all.

    Tina Knowles (!) and Halle Bailey are bdotw-worthy for me. I also love the textures, overlay and color of Chloe’s look as well, it just seems a tad tight. I wish Lala would relax the OTT posing but she looks good too.

      Tina Knowles looks great, the dress might be a tiny bit too tight.

      Love Halle’s dress and Lala looks great (posing not withstanding).

    Love Tina’s & Chloe’s look. I’m not a fan of the fishtail on Halle’s look. But I Love the black and white it gives me Xhosa vibe.

    Lala always poses like she’s sucking her stomach in.

      BC she is. Yes to everyone but Beyoncé’s mom, color and fabric are beautiful, nothing else is. She used to style her daughter and that explains a lot, however, Beyoncé has no excuse now.
