Jurnee Smollett Looks Flawless in Alexandre Vauthier at the NAACP Image Awards
The NAACP Image Awards were held on March 27, and the standout fashion looks are here. Among one of the standouts was Lovecraft Country star, Jurnee Smollett. Smollett is a natural beauty, who opted for a more modern yet still glamorous look. She decided to wear a fancy black and green Alexandre Vauthier dress. The first half of the dress is black, featuring a velvet bandeau. The bottom half of the dress is green, showcasing the emerald green skirt with a thigh-high slit. To complete the stunning look, Smollett wore vibrant pink shoes, another Alexandre Vauthier selected piece. With accessories to match, her earrings are from Nakard, and her rings are from John Hardy and Cathy Waterman.
Smollett had been nominated for an NAACP Award in the category for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Letitia Dandridge in the HBO drama series, Lovecraft Country. Smollett was in great company; the nominees were Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder), Angela Bassett (9-1-1), Brandee Evans (P-Valley), and Simone Missick (All Rise). Viola Davis had ended up winning the award for her role as Annalise Keating on ABC‘s How To Get Away With Murder.
Smollett is not mad about the loss at all, as she writes in an Instagram post that she “lost to her Queen, Viola Davis.” She then gives a shout-out to her fellow nominees, as she writes, “But for real- there’s no such thing as a loss when you’re able to stand alongside such legends and queens.” She then tagged Bassett, Davis, Evans, and Missick.
Fans have taken to social media to commend Smollett on her next-level acting abilities in Lovecraft Country. While fans wish Smollett could have come away with it, Smollett was so proud to be recognized among such incredible talent.
