Wearable Art Gala 2022 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on October 24, 2022

We gave Quinta Brunson the spotlight because she’s red-hot at the moment and also because she served le jazz hot, and of course any time there’s a Bey sighting and there’s fashion involved, you know we’re going to set aside some time in our day to assess. But it’s time to round up some of the other notable and head-turning attendees of this year’s Wearable Art Gala and see whether they are, in fact, wearing art. Or rather, whether they’re wearing good art.



Andra Day in Georges Hobeika

She’s never not gorgeous and looking spectacular, no matter what she’s wearing. We’re not the biggest fans of Hobeika generally or that cape specifically, but it’s hard to deny that she’s dazzling.




Angela Bassett in Georges Hobeika

Queen Angela went all the way in on the Harlem Nights/Cotton Club theme of the night. It’s fun and dramatic and in the mode of the evening. We’ll leave it at that. Yes, that means we don’t like the design.



Chloe Bailey (in Aje) and Halle Bailey (in Georges Hobeika Couture)

We’re surprised by how much we like Chloe’s, given how standard it is, in a lot of ways. Halle can handle a dress like this just fine and we won’t deny the impact, but the design is tacky.




Issa Rae

This is really cute and sticks to the theme of the night without looking too literal or costume-y.




Jurnee Smollett

The lady went for old school drama and we’d say she nailed it.




Lori Harvey in Ibrahima Gueye

She took the “wearable art” brief to heart and we really appreciate that. The design is interesting (although we’re not in love with the color) and her hair/makeup situation is flawless.




Marsai Martin in House of JMC

Another one who took the “wearable art” part of the evening literally. It’s giving drag and that works just fine for us. We could do without the feathers on the sheer gloves, though. Someone should have done some editing before those things became a reality.




Michelle Williams

Low-key cute.
