The 2018 American Black Film Festival Honors Awards which held over the weekend at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, February 25, 2018, was a celebration a black magic!
Trust all your favourite stars to bring their A-game to the red carpet. See all the looks here.
Sitcom besties Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji looked equally gorgeous in stunning strapless gowns, coincidence or?. Even though the dresses were of slightly different designs, the two looked like two peas in a pod sharing smiles and very similar beauty looks as they posed backstage with the Television Show Of The Year award which the Issa-created show Insecure won.
Yvonne left everyone green with envy as she rocked a Rita Vinieris luxury couture gown that fit her like a glove paired with black rhinestone jewellery from Jason of Beverly Hills and a Jeffrey Levinson satin black Nickel Elina clutch. She had on Louboutin shoes under the floor length gown – all put together by Ade Samuel.
She rocked her signature straight hair in a cropped hazelnut tinted bob done by Nicky B and wore shimmering smokey eyes and pink-nude lips by Drini Marie.
Issa Rae with the help of her stylist Jason Rembert showed off glowing melanin at the Sunday night event in a blue Oscar De La Renta Spring 2018 gown with disc spangle embroidery, paired with simple gold and crystal earrings.
On her head, she wore a gorgeous and sleek pulled back hairstyle done by celebrity natural hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood. It perfectly complimented the smokey eyes and soft pink nude lips face by Joanna Simkin.
