Who said box braids weren’t red carpet attire?

Nicolette Robinson is more than the wife to Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. The lovely actress and star of Showtime’s The Affair, is hard working on her own craft while supporting her husband who received a nomination and win as Best Actor in a musical. While at the 2016 Tony’s last night with hubby to support him, she also dazzled among the floral backdrop of roses in a magnificent white and blue sleeveless sheath gown. While her dress and jewelry was breathtaking, the talented actress stole our heart with her expertly done box braids that completed the look of a princess amongst the acting elite and the roses. 

Box braids on the red carpet? Yes! She slayed in that dress with those braids and if anyone was doubting the beauty and sophistication of braids, they need not anymore. She rocked them with the front half of her hair in a top bun while the back fell loosely down her back to her waist. Yvette Nicole Brown has to give the beauty her props on the Gram and captioned a pic of Nicolette and her husband, “Listen here, @NicoletteKloe: SLAY!!!!! And yes, I just screamed that at the top of my lungs! Lol! Gorgeous! GORGEOUS!!!! @TheTonyAwards”

Nicolette came to slay and her husband came to win a Tony. Sounds like a magical night for both of them. Congrats to the lovely couple!
