The lazy days of summer are here, which means the fashionable are more likely to be found chillin’ on an exclusive beach instead of a red carpet. Even with the slow weekend, a few Bomb celebs still came out to represent:
Tracee Ellis Ross made a dazzling appearance at the Women in Film Event in a black and white sheath and studded gold belt with a matching gold bracelet. The all-black clutch and shoes are an elegant touch and a smart choice, as they allow the busier parts of the outfit (the dress and gold accessories) to stand out. Love her hair and toned-down evening makeup, too–hot!
Also at the Women in Film event, red carpet up-and-comer Keke Palmer continued to blossom in this silk print floor-length evening gown. Like Tracee, Keke goes for subtle makeup, hair, and accessories given that her frock makes enough of a statement on its own. Although the dress isn’t one I’d go for, it somehow works for her. Keke’s fashion come-up is great, as it’s always a treat to have new Fashion Bomb celebs to look out for on the scene.
Halle Berry can do no wrong lately, can she? HB rocked a heavenly pale pink Grecian-style Marchesa gown with an abstract sequined embellishment at this weekend’s Shanghai Film Festival. I’m diggin’ her bracelets but I must say that her flawless skin is her best accessory–nothing like that golden glow to set off a pastel color. A haute hot!
And finally over at the Playboy Jazz Festival, funnyman Jamie Foxx (yes, that is a chicken wing in his hand–SMH and LOL simultaneously) went for a clean-cut look in a crisp dress shirt, patterned lavender tie, and a fuchsia sweater. He makes the ensemble a bit more cazh by pairing it with jeans and matching fuchsia-tinted shades. The coordinated shades are a bit too much for me, but overall I like the look: it’s young and contemporary without making it seem like he’s trying too hard to be youthful. OK, Mr. Foxx!
What say you?
