The actress, who wrote an essay on congresswoman Maxine Waters for the honors, was clad in a Reem Acra Fall 2018 look.
With its drop waist, gathered skirt and contrasting neckline, it was a fashion-forward and playful outfit that was very much in her wheelhouse.
Showing an eye for detail, the whimsical graphic emblazoned on the chest was picked up with her twisted bun and blue eye makeup.
If I must find fault with anything, I wish the trailing neckline bow was angled ever so slightly so it would be more visible in photos.
I’m sure she could have carried off the gloves, but elected to style it simply with Brian Atwood shoes.
Did you miss the gloves?
