Regina King in Louis Vuitton at the AMMP gala: best suit look?

When Kaiser told me yesterday morning there was yet another gala to cover I was not happy! We just had the Emmys, The Met Gala and the VMAs, it’s been a lot and I’m out of practice. Then I read some of her posts and I was excited for it. Big events are coming back, fashion is back and the Academy of Motion Pictures Museum is opening at the end of this month! I’ve been excited to see that since I first heard about it in early 2019. It was supposed to open in late 2019 but I guess it got pushed back and then the pandemic happened. I haven’t been to LA in so long and now I have yet another reason to visit. In the mean time Hecate will go and tell me all about it.

First off is Regina King in an amazing Louis Vuitton navy and black suit. Navy and black is in, we’ve seen Duchess Meghan wear that color combination a few times, and it looks so good on Regina. I also love her sleek side pony and her striking diamond and sapphire medallion necklace. She just wore a suit look to the Met Gala too. (It was a gown designed like a suit and she killed it there as well.)

I’m including Sophia Loren next because she was posing with Regina on the red carpet. You can see the stripes down the side of Regina’s suit! Sophia was being honored last night. I don’t have a designer ID on her gown but I wish it was in a better color. Still, Sophia is 87 years old! If I am still kicking it in gorgeous sequin gowns after 85 I will be so happy.

Regina also posed with Selma Blair, who was in a Rokh look featuring a sequin and jeweled nude tulle dress over black pants. There’s something very Cruella de Vil about this look. I’m not liking Selma’s makeup and hair color either, but I’m glad to see her out.

Tiffany Haddish was also in a black and white suit with blonde hair. I kind of love those pants and she looks so happy and relaxed. You get the sense that Tiffany has fun no matter where she is.

Look at how gorgeous Ava Duvernay is in that floor length long sleeve black gown with bright silk and floral print patches. It’s such a simple yet elegant design. Ava was there to honor Ethiopian filmmaker Haile Gerima with the Vantage Award.

Look at Angela Bassett! She is working this Elie Saab pantsuit, but Angela could work looks that most models couldn’t pull off. I don’t really like the fussy gold brocade on this, but with Angela in it I see the intent.

Here’s Gabrielle Union looking uncomfortable in a Alexandre Vauthier dress. That just looks like a black bodysuit with layers of chiffon on it. It’s not a great look.

Dwyane Wade was there too. Gabrielle’s memoir just came out. She’s getting the most headlines for talking about the time Dwyane had a baby with another woman in 2013, maybe when they were on a break. I don’t know how these celebrities can put all their business out in public like that, but I’m not famous.

Jennifer Hudson also looks disappointed with her Alexandre Vauthier gown. It’s just an LBD with a bunch of asymmetric sparkly fringe on it. Sometimes I think the famous women get roped into these looks by their stylists and just go along with it because they know they’ll get a better dress the next time around.

    Ok, Sophia is a treasure. I love everything about Regina’s look, except the stripes. Angela looks fab. And those Vauthier gowns are a duet of sad trombones.

    • original_kellybean says:

      I agree with you about the stripes on Regina’s suit. If they were black, it would have worked but the white reminds me of Adidas track pants.

      • SophieJara says:

        Maybe that was intentional? Adidas (and other branded athletic looks) is an important and aspirational brand in Los Angeles (and Oakland CA where I live).

    • Killfanora says:

      With you on the stripes. They cheapen a beautiful trouser suit and make it look like track-suit bottoms.

  2. Seraphina says:

    I really like all the looks here. Bravo – a feast for the eyes fashion wise. IMHO – Angela for the win. All hail Ms. Bassett.

    • FHMom says:

      Not only do I love all of these women, but I love their looks, also. Look at Sophia Loren. She has been beautiful her whole life. It’s good to see Selma out and about. Regina King can do no wrong. These photos put me in a good mood

    OH MY! This is the eye candy post, what a collection! Regina looks like they just elected her queen, fully fabulous. That ponytail! I almost fainted

  4. Becks1 says:

    I think everyone looks great .I actually LOVED Gabrielle’s dress. She posted pics on her IG before the event of them posing in front of a fan or wind machine or something (lol) and the way the chiffon moved was gorgeous.

    I also really like Selma Blair’s outfit, the hair is a little too blonde IMO but the actual outfit is great.

    Regina King looks fabulous.

  5. Kviby says:

    Regina and Ava look great . You don’t need to show skin or show it through transparent fabric to look amazing; see: Ava

  6. lucy2 says:

    I love all of these except the two Vauthier dresses. All of the pants outfits are fabulous. Angela’s is probably my favorite, I love the detail, and I really like Selma’s too. Tiffany’s is very sophisticated and sleek.

  7. SM says:

    Ava and Angela are gorgous, real stars of this event. Also Salma Blair’s hairline is bonkers

  8. Barbie1 says:

    Love Regina’s suit. Especially the navy color. Fainting over the jewels. Wish it was a daytime event though. Sophia is one of the last megawatt classic movie stars, may she live forever.

  9. jferber says:

    I absolutely loved EVERY outfit. I feel like I’m in love with every one of these people. Wowza!

  10. Normades says:

    I actually like Jennifer’s dress but she looks like she isn’t having any fun so it doesn’t look good on her. In the contrary, Tiffany’s outfit isn’t great but she looks happy and radiant in it.

    Ava FTW and I don’t even really like her dress.

    These ladies are my picks for best dress of the night.
