Ava DuVernay, Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor and Nicey Nash-Betts at the ORIGIN New York Premiere

Posted on December 01, 2023


There’s a part of us that thinks the title of this post in combination with the picture above is pretty much all you need to know before scrolling down.



Just in case you’re actually reading this, Ava directed a film called Origin starring Aunjanue and Niecy and they all got together to serve looks at the New York premiere. Just look at these divas:





Ava DuVernay in Dolce & Gabbana

Just stunning. She is the most glamorous and stylish director working today, by far. LOVE that dark pewter. Could’ve done without the ruffled edges on the bustline.



Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor

We adore how draggy and out-there her style is; the way it combines a queer aesthetic, a rockstar aesthetic and a funk aesthetic. No one else is hitting red carpets quite the way she is at the moment. In a way, these over-the-top looks are beyond critique, but we don’t think the shoes or the sash work.



Nicey Nash-Betts in Dolce & Gabbana

The molded cups feel a little off-brand for her, but we can’t argue with the overall sense of elegant glamour. Our only critique is that the shoulders could be toned down a little.


Written and Directed by Ava DuVernay
Starring Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga, Audra McDonald, Niecy Nash-Betts, Nick Offerman, Blair Underwood
Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, ORIGIN chronicles the tragedy and triumph of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates a global phenomenon of epic proportions.
Portrayed by Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor (“King Richard”), Isabel experiences unfathomable personal loss and love as she crosses continents and cultures to craft one of the defining American books of our time. Inspired by the New York Times best-seller “Caste,” ORIGIN explores the mystery of history, the wonders of romance and a fight for the future of us all.
