April 12, 2018 Runway To Red Carpet

GLAAD’s 2018 Rising Stars Luncheon

Posted by Heather Cichowski

The GLAAD’s 2018 Rising Stars Luncheon on Wednesday (April 11) in Beverly Hills, California brought some major fashion. The Rising Stars program supports the next generation of LGBTQ change makers who are working to change communities of all sizes.

Alexandra Shipp: The actress couldn’t have picked a more suitable dress for the occasion as the multicoloured bands on her Ralph Lauren Spring 2018 gown nod to the LGBTQ rainbow flag. With their placement, they have a sporty undertone and enhance her figure in a striking manner. The accessories and makeup play into the magnetic tones.

Nafessa Williams: The ‘Black Lightning’ actress celebrated volume in a full Falguni Shane Peacock look. It’s an exuberant ensemble, especially for a luncheon, but she has such a confidence in it, and I love that. She is also posing just so to show off every part from the flounce in the skirt to the exaggerated shoulders.

    Alexandra looks sporty and elegant. Nafessa outfit looks OTT and costumey

    Alexandra’s look is lovely. Nafessa’s dress is a travesty of blue.

    Alexandra looks good. Nafessa’s dress is ridiculous but on the plus side her beauty look is on point.

    I like Alexandra’ look, she looks cool. Nafessa dress is too overwhelming, but the shades of blue look nice on her.
