“Queen & Slim” AFI Fest Premiere Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on November 15, 2019

We just had to give the spotlight treatment to Miss Janelle and Miss Rihanna‘s entrances onto this red carpet, but make no mistake: quite a few of the attendees (but not necessarily all of them) brought their fashion game with them to this one.


Daniel Kaluuya in Dior Homme

Love the silver-gray tux. We’re not sure all of the styling works. Keep the chains and kicks, but we think we’d switch out that undershirt with something that provides a little more contrast and maybe some color.




Jodie Turner-Smith

This is lovely, unusual and dramatic. It almost has a fantasy costume quality; like something you’d see in the background of Aquaman or a Star War. We love the color and the overall design, but the way the pleated overlay sits on her neck and bust doesn’t feel quite … resolved in the design.




Lena Waithe

Love this. It’s sporty, colorful, very much to her preferences and the definition of Lesbian Chic, as far as we’re concerned. Probably could’ve done without the satin top, however.




Natalie Portman in Dior

This is one of the more interesting Diors we’ve seen her sport in a while. The design is eye-catching, but the dress looks awfully puckery and we think we hate the shape of the sleeves, which needed to be a bit more defined.




Tracee Ellis Ross in JW Anderson

Oooh, you lost us with this one, Miss T. The flare on the jacket paired with the wide-legged pants makes any wearer look much more bottom-heavy than they are. It’s just a bad design. The hanging straps don’t help. They just look sloppy and like she couldn’t get the jacket to fit properly or something. It’s just bad up and down.



Zendaya in Imane Ayissi

If there’s one thing Miss Zendaya has earned on the red carpet, it’s a night off, we suppose. This is serviceable and she’s not promoting her own work so it’s all good, but unusually forgettable, given her style record.
