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.
