We were actually going to put this look up to a vote as to its INness or OUTness. It is to LOL. As if we could find anything to criticize about this look.

We don’t have to tell you to WERQ that goddess shit, girl. You KNOW you’re working it.

      Her smile is almost as cute as her laugh. Have you all heard it? SO infectious!! She looks beautiful.

      She looks lovely. Great use of the metallic fabric. (Kimberley! Take note–it can be done!).

      She is absolutely gorgeous. Love the dress, accessories, makeup, and hair.

      I think she looks stunning!  My only tiny little quibble is the earrings.  IMHO, the dangles work against the neckline.  Again, a tiny quibble that in no way detracts from her WERQ-ing that goddess glam!

      She looks great. The dress, hairstyle, bracelet and clutch all work together beautifully.

      I love her hair and her smile.  She looks lovely and cute and pretty and elegant and happy (note to you sullen movie stars, try to look happy on the carpet) all at once.

      She looks gorgeous, and that hubby of hers is a damn fine accessory too. Just a striking couple.

      I’d have that big ole grin on my face too if I looked this fine and had that handsome gentleman with his arm around me.

      She looks impeccable, and her date looks like he deserves a werq too, from what we can see.

      Nice! Bears some similarity to that Michael Kors dress, yes? I like, though. She looks fab.

      Nobody can WERQ a white dress like black women, in my humble opinion.  Absolutely stunning!

        Should my fairy godmother ever gift me with a few weeks of dark skin, I will dress exclusively in white, sherbet pastels and tone-on-tone wheat colors.

        We all dream a little about what we’ll never get/be.

            Ha!  I’m even more shallow than that – I just want to look good in all the colors that have looked like s**t on me my entire life.

      De Gorgeous. That is all.

      I wonder what shoes she is wearing?  Regardless, she looks divine.

      She’s as luminous as her dress is!  I love it when elegance is accompanied by radiance like that.

      Her makeup looks gorgeous, and is inspiring me to go straight home and play in the eyeshadow and liner.

        Elegance + Radiance = Luminous

      That is an unattractive dress, imo, but she makes it WERQ overtime!  Seriously great hair for her.

      Just right. Perhaps a dash more lip color? And can’t see the shoe choice. WERQ and IN.

      She looks beautiful–and is a fantastic actress, too.  When she’s on the screen you can’t look at anyone else.

      Viola Davis…? Where (and WHO’S SHE WITH?)?

      She dresses so consistently well that she must have enough dress sense to guide her stylists. Or, she styles herself.

      Gorgeous.

      She looks gorgeous, but I still take issue with her old lady hair.

      Love it, but I am going to criticize the crap out of her scary eye makeup. 

      • margaret meyers

        I want a little moisturizer all over her, too.  I love dark skin with a dewy sheen.

      Luv huh. She looks gorgeous!

      Very Supremes, in a good way!

      And Mr. Age Appropriate Man looks way good, too.

      She is so darn adorable. I’d like to see it from the side to get an idea of the shape, but the dress is beautiful.

      The woman is aging backwards in front of eyes.  And look at those shoulders.  DANG.

      I like it that she has a hair STYLE and not just lots of hair all long and hanging down.  Lovely.
