The Critics’ Choice Association’s 5th Annual Celebration of the Black Cinema & Television Ceremony took place Monday (Dec. 5) at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, California.
Angela Basset received a Career Achievement Award, and I hope she also received an award for Best Dressed of the Night, as she looked radiant in a custom Dolce Gabbana fuchsia sequined jumpsuit with a pink satin overlay.
Don’t you love it when a custom look is perfect?
It is one of my greatest pleasures. I am not friendly to you.
The big curls matched her great energy as the actress styled her look Dolce Gabbana accessories including a crystal mesh clutch and matching satin platform sandals.
It seems these draped sashes are trending on the red carpet.
Are they on their way to becoming the new opera gloves?
Quinta Brunson was also an award winner on the night when she accepted the award for Best Actress on Television.
When I saw her in this gorgeous strapless dress with the luxurious draped satin detail, I was beyond overjoyed as I think it means her ballgown days are far behind her.
And with awards season gaining momentum, this has come at the right time.
Our prayers have been answered. This is right behind her Emmys dress for me in terms of her best looks of the year.
I would like to Andrea day went back to her boho roots by wearing this Zuhair Murad fall 2022 mix printed off-shoulder dress with flared sleeves.
The most refreshing thing about this look are the warm copper and rust tones that seem to match her skin tone and the mood of the season.
I would have liked her makeup artist to add one of those colors to the lips or eyes, but this is still a big win for Andra.
When it comes to Duso Mbeduwho wore one Dior Spring 2023 black silk taffeta dress, I like the dress, but I’m not sold on the Dior boots.
The rest of the styling is charming, I would have preferred pumps or sandals with this strapless dress.
Ayo Edebiri accepted the Rising Star Award with a Rosie Assoulin fall 2022 white suit.
Wrapped in a scarf, the look was trendy with the makeshift hood.
Zaria continued her love affair with all things Dolce Gabbana wearing this black silk chiffon dress with boning details.
I love how the dress is sensual without being overly sexy, but I couldn’t get involved with the makeup.
