Taraji P. Henson Serves it Up in David Koma at the amfAR Gala

Posted on February 08, 2018

amfAR Galas tend to be glitzy affairs, where the celebrities invited seem to be encouraged to get their sparkle on more than they might normally. Miss T is not someone who needs encouragement to go big and glam in her style choices, and that history of sparkle-style served her in good stead here. She nailed this one to the wall.


We don’t love the shape of the neckline (not helped by a bust that’s a skosh tight), and we generally have a tepid response to a lot of David Koma’s output, but this is truly spectacular. That bronzey-orange is an unusual color for the red carpet and looks flamazing on her.

Has she softened her hair and makeup game of late or is it just for this look? It seems to us she had some issues in that area a few years back, but we can’t remember the last time we saw her face and had the “Ooh, that’s a little harsh” reaction. The softness of the hair and makeup is not only flattering and pretty; it works really well to balance the hardness and high-glam of the dress. A strong lip and a smokey eye would’ve ruined the look, we think.
