Anika Noni Rose In Jovani – 33rd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards

Anika Noni Rose shimmered at the 33rd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards on Saturday (March 24) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It might look like a glistening gown, but this Jovani ensemble is actually a strapless jumpsuit with an attached skirt.

It was a showstopper of a look. When she posed, it revealed the intricate lace trousers underneath the embellished skirt.

The white version has a bohemian beauty, but I was pleased she opted for the more formal darker style for the event.

With such a dramatic effect, she kept her accessories simple.

Anika Noni Rose In Thai Nguyen Atelier – 2017 Emmy Awards

Anika Noni Rose graced the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 17) in LA wowing in resplendent tones of blush.

The singer and Emmy presenter donned a custom Thai Nguyen Atelier gown. The full skirt brought a soft girlishness to the slit-to-there deep neckline.

She echoed the subdued tones of the gown with her makeup and dangling earrings. The most color in her look came from her crop of auburn hair.

What do you think of the plunge?

Black Girls Rock! 2017

Taraji P. Henson and Skai Jackson weren’t the only ones on the red carpet for Black Girls Rock! 2017 on Saturday (August 4) in Newark, New Jersey. Here’s a look at the other stars who were in the mix.

Yara Shahidi: Returning to her love of a long-sleeved dress, Yara wore an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 shimmery plum frock styled with Porcelain Chyna jewels and metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Lucy’ heels. I don’t know if it was the ruffled neckline or the belt, but something about the top half of the dress translated as a bit mature for the vibrant young starlet. But, the sheer, pleated paneling ensured a lighthearted finish.

Anika Noni Rose: Flirty and feminine, the actress had some fun in a Dennis Basso floral-print frock that may land in the dated category for some of you. Alexis Bittar jewelry and an ATELIER SWAROVSKI ‘Marina’ clutch completed the look.

Issa Rae: The sheer element of this Leilou by Aleksandra Dojcinovic Fall 2017 gown was somewhat diffused by the rows of embellishment and thigh-high slit. Stuart Weitzman sandals, John Hardy jewels, and a Edie Parker clutch served as her accessories, but the dress was clearly the main attraction.

Anika Noni Rose In Cinq à Sept – Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017

Anika Noni Rose was also at Disney’s D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, California on Friday (July 14), joining Mandy Moore and Kristen Bell.

Wearing a Cinq à Sept Pre-Fall 2017 floral maxi dress, she took a bold yet playful approach.

Letting the graphic, black-and-white effect of the print take front and centre, she accessorised just with subtle jewels and black sandals for an easy, breezy finish.

‘Everything, Everything’ LA Premiere

The ‘Everything, Everything’ LA premiere was held on Saturday (May 6) in Hollywood, California, with two of its stars in attendance.

Amandla Stenberg: Cara Delevingne isn’t the only one rocking the bald and beautiful look. Amandla styled her buzzed ’do with a Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 embellished tweed design styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Lucy’ pumps. While lovely, the look seemed a bit mature for her 18 years.

Anika Noni Rose: Amandla would have been a good candidate for Anika’s Georges Chakra Fall 2015 Couture frock, as its flirty flared shape and bright mix of hues had a youthful spirit.

BET Presents the American Black Film Festival Honors

The BET Presents the American Black Film Festival Honors were held on Friday (February 17) in Beverly Hills, California, with a number of stars in attendance.

Kylie Bunbury: My fondness for the actress’s Solace London ‘Amelle’ dress started with its bright, sunny hue, but it was the cascade of large ruffles down the front and back that really stole the show.

Issa Rae: Had the wide cummerbund-style detailing of this Lisa Folawiyo printed dress fallen a bit higher on Issa’s waist, the proportions would have changed for the better. As presented, it shortens the leg line rather than elongating it. The look was styled with an Edie Parker ‘Lara’ clutch.

Queen Latifah: Had she abided by the rule to remove one accessory before you leave, this look would have already been off to a better start. But, then I ask myself, which accessory… One of the gold cuffs? The clashing red clutch? The Saint Laurent tassel earrings? The strangely blunt, layered extensions? They all needed to go.

31.01.17 Screening

Anika Noni Rose In Rubin Singer – ‘The Quad’ Screening

Anika Noni Rose attended the premiere screening of ‘The Quad’ by BET on Monday (January 30) in New York City.

The actress made both a statement and lasting impression in this high-shine Rubin Singer look, which suits her often out-there style.

I would say the only thing that attempted to dull her shine, were those suede ankle tie shoes.

They kinda feel out of place here.
