Despite making headlines for more than one reason that night, Jada Pinkett-Smith did blow us away the moment she walked down the red carpet in this couture gown from the spring/summer 2022 collaboration of Jean Paul Gaultier and Glenn Martens of Diesel and Y/Project. This deep emerald green gown made her look ultimately regal on the red carpet.
One of the trending themes of the night was highlighting soft yet bold feminine colors and details. Kirsten Dunst showed exactly that with this Lacroix piece that made her look nothing short of being the belle of the ball.
Leave it to Kristen Stewart to add a touch of chic rebellion on the red carpet with this Chanel suit with short pants. It feels like an ode to her rock n roll aesthetic, which dare we say, only Kristen can pull off in this kind of event.
Sparkle is what we wanted and sparkle is what we got with Lupita Nyong’o looking like a goddess in this golden Prada ensemble. Looking at the dress alone makes you think it may be a little bit over the top — but on Lupita? It looks effortless and simply picture perfect.
Top athlete Serena Williams was a sight to behold in this flowing Gucci frock in the most beautiful shade of pink. It imbibes a certain vintage touch, which is perfectly balanced with her sleek hairdo.
The other top athlete Williams sister is not to be outdone in this white Elie Saab gown. A combination of futuristic and minimalist styles, Venus exudes the kind of beauty possessed with both strength and grace.
Zendaya has been rocking red carpets here and there, and she definitely did not disappoint with this Valentino Haute Couture combo. She simply looks effortless — wearing a white top and skirt that we all wish we wore during our work-from-home Zoom meetings.
