here’s nothing as inspiring as watching yourself blossom all season round. The ability to own your personal style and align it to suit each season’s artistic demands is simply the peak of craftsmanship. Last week, we saw this level of mastery play out in the way Black celebs swayed to events like the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever European movie premiere, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and Glamour Women Of The Year Awards elegantly clad in ensembles that mirrored their equally blossoming careers and lives in general.

The Looks

For celebrities like Lupita Nyong’o, it was a dressing up to the T kind of week—no other way to step out when your movie is the talk of the town. Nyong’o attended the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie premiere in London wearing an Alexander McQueen black organza dress with silver wave embroidery.

We may be nose-deep in Fall, but star girl Kelly Rowland brought the heat of summer to the Glamour Women of The Year Awards’ red carpet in a slinky Laquan Smith FW22 revenge gown. The dress’ name speaks for itself. The bold cutout feature on the chest and figure-accentuating silhouette is one fierce number a girl should slip into on a day she wants to make an unforgettable statement.

The 11th annual LACMA art+film gala, held last weekend, is known for featuring diverse artworks of different origins. South African actress Thuso Mbedu aced the red carpet style in a green pleated Gucci dress with a blue lacy torso and matching eye shadow. Key in: MASTERPIECE.

Check out the best looks seen on your favorite elegant Black celebrities on the red carpet and beyond…
