Just as lit lamps shine regardless of where they’re placed, so do Black stars glow without limits. And last week was no exception. Celebrities and influencers headed out to red carpet events, interviews, and weddings in numbers that clearly spelled F.A.S.H.I.O.N with not a single care in the world. Blame it on the season which evokes a playful desire to try out daring takes and the designers who pumped their SS22 collections with quaint trends like frills, sequins, metallics, and vivid colors. Consequently, when the time came to deliver picturesque outfits with voguish accouterments, black style stars and celebrities took center stage without second thoughts.
Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross showed up at the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in a frisky Kevin Germanier number and complementary Louboutin neon pumps. The frill detailing, neon accents, and embellished features of the on-season dress put a funk in Ross’ steps. Among other things we’ll miss about the Blackish show, Rainbow Johnson’s sense of sophisticated style would rank top on the list.
A suit remains as it is—a suit until Zendaya chooses to slide into one. This time, the Disney star took a suave Fear of God suit to baroque sartorial heights as she attended Euphoria’s FYC event in Los Angeles. Whenever Zendaya opts for a modish menswear outfit for a red carpet appearance rather than an iridescent dress (of which she effortlessly slays too), she challenges the de rigueur of fashion and makes room for more androgynous experiments.
When the wedding bells ring on the Nigerian side of the globe, trust Nigerians to RSVP in a fluent dose of flamboyance. Last week was a wedding galore in Nollywood with ace actress Rita Dominic and filmmaker Kemi Adetiba tying the knots. Nigerian actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim was styled to perfection in a predominantly green pant set that features dazzling gold details. The look was further accentuated with a green and gold headscarf and finished off nicely with a matching hand fan as she attended Rita Dominic’s “#reeldeel22” wedding.
