Style File: Regina King Promotes “One Night in Miami”

Posted on January 26, 2021

Miss Regina has been BUSY. Hollywood producers: One of the great things about hiring actresses to direct films is that you’re going to get a whole ‘nother level of promotional work in comparison to non-actress directors. Why? Simply because Hollywood actresses are more or less trained from the second they get their SAG card to promote themselves utilizing the looks-based restrictions imposed on them by the culture and the industry. In other words, they know how to dress up to get fashion coverage. Regina’s been in the business for many decades now and she can do this sort of dress-up promotional work in her sleep, more or less. It’s to her credit that she so enthusiastically submitted herself to the energetic styling aesthetic of her stylists Wayman + Micah. It’s served her really well not just by keeping this film at the forefront of entertainment coverage for months, but also because it’s worked as a kind of branding effort for herself; re-establishing her preferences for bold, slightly off-beat pieces.

Oscar de la Renta

It’s a simple, classic shape rendered in a gorgeously eye-catching textile. The color’s great on her but the moiré effect really makes it. Just a sharp, confident look with a sense of luxury to it.

 

 

 

Aliétte

We’ll admit that this is the only look in this collection of ensembles that really doesn’t do it for us. The design of the top is interesting, but this is having the opposite effect of that gorgeous OdlR suit above: the textile’s ruining it.

 

 

Proenza Schouler

Have we mentioned her hair yet? Because it almost goes without saying that it’s fantastic and elevates all these looks. This pale blue looks fantastic on her and we like the sort of cool simplicity of it. We don’t even mind the handkerchief hem, which is thing we usually mind. Maybe because the silver sandals are so well-chosen.

 

 

 

Christian Dior

The extremely unresolved sleeve situation bugs a little, we’ll admit. But the gauzy, romantic effect and muted color look fantastic on her. We may have issues with the design of the bodice, but the skirt is gorgeous and rich-looking.

 

 

Monse

LOVE this. It seems like the fussy design of the jacket is causing it to pull a little (it’s the same for the model in the look book), but we love the sharpness, the oddness, and even the coolness of that brown plaid paired with those bronze shoes and just the right touches of gold. It works fantastically on her. Sharp, a little sexy, and high-fashion edgy all at once.
