Sonequa Martin-Green in Simone Rocha at the 2019 Costume Designers Guild Awards

Posted on February 20, 2019

Hey, remember that time when we told you how the CDGA Awards tends to bring out some bold choices for the stars in attendance? That was a fun thought, right? Well here comes the downside:




No, Ma’am.

Sonequa? No.

It’s a no for us, is what we’re trying to say here.

Miss Woman, you are gorgeous, but you fell victim to the FMO dress. For Models Only – and even then, only for 90 seconds at a time under precise conditions, like a runway or a Vogue editorial. This is not an ensemble meant to be worn by non-professional dress-wearers out in any setting that could remotely be considered the real world. And admittedly, a Hollywood awards show barely qualifies in that respect. But for real: this is a dress that has maybe one good angle and should be viewed under controlled lighting and climate conditions. It looks kinda cool on the runway, totally disastrous on the red carpet.
