2019 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on February 22, 2019

Black ladies and black lady-supporters, please step forward to display your finery.

 

 

Amandla Stenberg in Ellery

LOVE. It’s very much a throwback to the seventies, but her youth does a lot to make it look fresh and chic.

 

 

Angela Bassett in Greta Constantine

Can’t argue with the dress, but those shoes look like they’re torturing her.

 

 

Billy Porter

Low-key fabulous.

 

 

 

Kelly Rowland in Keti Chkhikvadze

Good to see you, Miss Kelly. Let us know when you’re ready to change into your outfit. We can’t wait to see it!

 

 

 

Kiki Layne in Ulla Johnson

It’s an attention-getter, that’s for sure. But we don’t like the colors, textile or shapes.

 

 

 

Laura Harrier in Glemaud

She has both an eye for interesting looks and the knack to make them sing. The colors look amazing on her. The hoops and hair play really well with the business-sexy vibe of the look.

 

 

 

Marsai Martin in Alice + Olivia

Adorable-Chic. She looks amazing.

 

 

 

Octavia Spencer

This is kind of sharp, but it feels a bit businesslike or luncheon in tone.

 

 

 

Regina Hall in Reem Acra

It’s okay. The color’s only so-so and the neckline’s a bit overdesigned.

 

 

 

Regina King in L’Agence

LOVE this. It’s like she’s openly auditioning for a Michelle Obama biopic now.

 

 

 

Shangela Pierce in Topman

Taking a page from the RuPaul Book of Style, we see. Very smart. And also very much the kind of thing he would do, since he’s always claimed Ru as his main career inspiration. Our only complain is with those awful bowling shoes.
