Ashanti was honoured with the Lady of Soul Award at the 2021 Soul Train Awards on Saturday (November 20) in New York City.
Some might say that this honour is well overdue, considering she has been a veteran of contemporary R&B for two decades, and the success of her self-titled debut album entered her name into the Guinness Book of World Records for breakthrough first-week sales of 503,000 units.
I would imagine that since this was a moment she will be looking back on with great pride, she wanted an elegant gown to match the occasion.
So she turned to Christian Siriano who continues to do what he does best; create showstopping, jaw-dropping designs.
The silhouette wants to push this into princess-worthy status, but the fabric and the neckline ensured this piece embodied a sense of Hollywood glamour.
Thanks to Ruth for reminding us that ‘Succession’ star Sarah Snook wore this same gown to the Golden Globe Awards.
