October 17, 2019 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

Gugu Mbatha-Raw Gets Her Groove Back In Gucci For The 'Motherless Brooklyn' Rome Film Festival Premiere

If you’re anything like me, you’re breathing a sigh of relief upon seeing Gugu Mbatha-Raw on the red carpet for the ‘Motherless Brooklyn’ Rome Film Festival on Thursday (October 17) in Italy.

You see…the New York premiere didn’t live up to expectations, or Gugu’s usual standard.

So when I posted this on Instagram this evening, Gilmichalina said, “finally, a gown she deserves.”

And I couldn’t agree more.

This Gucci Pre-Fall 2019 gown is red carpet, film festival, premiere, and Gugu worthy.

It’s another off-the-shoulder gown, but one that fits to perfection.

I love the majestic constellation embellishments which made me think of Harry Potter for some reason.

I adore the dual colours. I feel the black bodice anchors this look.  I’m unsure if I would’ve been so enamored had this been in all blue, despite it being my favourite colour. 

A simple updo complemented the look along with Gucci Le Marché des Merveilles earrings with feline head motif in 18kt white gold and diamonds and a GG Running ring in 18kt white gold and diamonds.

I love this time of year, as we suddenly get an embarrassment of riches.

October has been a good month for BDOTY candidates.

    This is very wow! And I’m very questioning if I’m still gay at the moment
    ???

    This is fabulous. And the way she wears it sells it even more. Her posture translates how much she likes it, and is confortable in it.
    Great look.

    I want to like this. I should like this. Yet I don’t. I think the Harry Potter comment explained it. Every element alone is gorgeous. Breathtaking even. But put it all together and all I see is wizard halloween.

    BDOTW contender, probably even BDOTY.
    I love everything about this dress.

  5. Guest October 18, 2019 at 11:29 am #

    I’m not usually on blue and black together but here it all looks divine. I feel like she should have a tiara so regal that she looks and holds herself. She’s definitely a BDOTY contender.

    It’s been a while since I fell in love with a Gucci design. But this is what dreams are made of!

    anonymous as always

    Wow…this is a breathtaking dress! I am in awe…

  8. Guest October 18, 2019 at 11:02 am #

    Gaw-jawwwssss

  9. MissHebble October 18, 2019 at 9:55 am #

    Oh this is glorious! Another one for my BDOTY list methinks.

  10. CharlotteLG October 18, 2019 at 9:33 am #

    So perfect!
    BDOTY for sure

  11. Catarina_M October 18, 2019 at 7:54 am #

    I love it. And she looks proud.

  12. Guest October 18, 2019 at 7:13 am #

    Gugu is such a beauty though. And this dress really enhances that

  13. Guest October 18, 2019 at 6:28 am #

    Wow, she really did get her groove back!
    Also, she looks like a million times better than does the dress in the lookbook.

  14. Guest October 18, 2019 at 6:27 am #

    BDOTY already. Loved it. What perfection. What art. Beyond stunning. Also, I can see SJP taking this look more notches up. But damn Gugu is killing it.

  15. Mady1908 October 18, 2019 at 4:36 am #

    DIVINE, unbelievable, this dress is perfection. Gugu looks amazing, the dress fits perfectly, BDOTY contender.

  16. Vizual Ninja October 18, 2019 at 3:42 am #

    So whimsical and romantic, definitely agree that this is her best look ever.

  17. Guest October 18, 2019 at 3:19 am #

    This is a very well-styled look. The updo and and simple jewelry are lovely. The first time I saw this dress, it was on the model and I hated it but I realize now seeing it on Gugu that it is not a bedazzled sack but is a very lovely dress.

      Thanks. This is what happens when you blog at near midnight. Thank you

  19. Guest October 18, 2019 at 3:06 am #

    Hands down this is Gugu’s best red carpet look ever. This is head and toe perfection and her radiant smile just shows how confident and happy she looks in this dress, WOW! Goosebumps alert and definitely BDOTY contender no doubt, we’re not worthy indeed! Long live Queen Gugu, flying kisses for this stunning British beauty!

  20. Guest October 18, 2019 at 12:58 am #

    WOW! This gorgeous. So much better than the lookbook. BDOTY candidate for sure.

  21. Guest October 18, 2019 at 12:40 am #

    Oh my that is AMAZING!!!! I’m in love with the ⭐️ theme and the dual colored sky ? bodice and skirt! My only teeny nitpick is wishing for a bolder lip. ⭐️??

  22. Jess Mara October 18, 2019 at 12:37 am #

    Just divine – this is going onto my BDOTY list !!! So many to choose from now I dont know how I’m going to do it.

  23. KseniaBradner October 18, 2019 at 12:33 am #

    I really love this on Gugu, I am enchanted! BDOTW.

  24. Guest October 18, 2019 at 12:32 am #

    Splendid, adore the bodice(!) adding to my list of BDOTY potentials as well.

    • Guest October 18, 2019 at 12:35 am #

      ..and good posture goes a long way, the neck/shoulder line is shown off beautifully.

    • Jess Mara October 18, 2019 at 12:38 am #

      I agree – I find the British actresses seem to have better posture than most others.

  25. Guest October 18, 2019 at 12:00 am #

    Wow. I can tell she loves it too.

    • Jess Mara October 18, 2019 at 12:39 am #

      Yes and that’s a good thing

  26. Guest October 17, 2019 at 11:28 pm #

    love this!! and she looks so pretty

  27. Guest October 17, 2019 at 11:22 pm #

    Yesss! She’s such a beauty! I almost forget about that ill-fitting lime green and creased gown she previously worn.

    This might not be everyone’s cup of tea, as I think there might be critics like ‘costumey’, ‘childish’ etc. But I really like it! It’s a BDOTY candidate for me.?

  28. Phee phee October 17, 2019 at 11:21 pm #

    This is beyond stunning! Im in love with this striking look.
    So so much better than the lookbook version.
    I have put this on my BDOTY list….Its just that amazing to my eyes.
