Queen Latifah was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2021 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (June 27) in Los Angeles, California, so two looks was a minimum requirement.
At the heart of any Thom Browne look is the designer’s love of perfectly tailored clothing which is on display here.
While he has a reputation for extravagance that infuses personality and modernity, this Oxford shirt dress presented a classic, and refined approach which was very much on brand for the Grammy and Emmy winning singer-actress.
The look couldn’t be complete with the classic Thom Browne mini briefcase bag, but when it comes to my favourite parts of this look it is of course the cape, and the multi buckle Thom Browne ski boots for me.
Queen Latifah was deeply moved when accepted her Lifetime Achievement Award which saw her wearing a custom Christian Siriano Fall 2020 look.
On one hand I love the regal element of the coat which she wore as a cape, but colour-wise I’m not so enamoured.
I would’ve been more sold on this look had the coat been black methinks.
