Though Sunday night’s Governors Awards may have seemed to go down pretty quietly for us non-A-listers, Black excellence made its typical joyful noise on the red carpet. The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 11th Annual Governors Awards was no exception in showing up in our Sunday’s best.
Actresses Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jodie Turner-Smith, Cynthia Erivo, and Academy Award winner Regina King, amongst others, were sights to behold in colored ‘dos and bright makeup. While green, gold, and purple seemed to have been the emphasis in the fashion memo, the red carpet beauty was all about glowing skin. And everyone took heed.
