Ruth Negga in Gucci at the “Ad Astra” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on September 19, 2019

ATTENTION HOLLYWOOD: FROM THIS DAY FORWARD, PLEASE CAST RUTH NEGGA IN ALL THE THINGS.

Because we want nothing more than a constant and near-daily string of this kind of red carpetry:

 

How gorgeous is that? She wears enough Gucci to make us wonder if she has some sort of relationship with the brand. What’s more notable to our eyes is how well-selected her Gucci looks tend to be. A lot of celebs hit the Gucci rack and pick some fairly unsuitable stuff, but Miss Ruth and her team seem to always hone in on the one no one else is grabbing. This looks to our eyes like a gown very few would or should try to pull off, but it’s absolutely perfect for her. The colors are slightly unusual and the pattern could easily overwhelm any wearer. The beading at the neckline is a bit much, but she has the face and hairstyle that can handle a bit of exuberance right at the neck. The dress might’ve been better off without it, but there’s no question in our minds that she’s working it. The only design element we don’t love are the black velvet cuffs. Too focus-pulling. We go back and forth on the eyeshadow. Yes, she can work it, but like the neck sparkle, it’s not really needed.
