Black Girl Magic doesn’t stop and it definitely continued on the red carpet of the 2016 Met Gala.
1. Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein
The Oscar winner and current Broadway star, took advantage of her night off to slay the red carpet. She glowed in green and broke necks with her natural up do hairstyle (total Coming to America vibes). But literally, do you see Nate Parker in the back, breaking his neck just to get a glimpse? I don’t blame you Mr. Parker.
2. Zendaya Coleman in Michael Kors
This stunning fashion forward 19 year old, makes me so excited about her high fashion future. She and her stylist, Law Roach, always put the pedal to the metal and Z is killin’ in Kors.
3. Zoe Saldana in Dolce & Gabana
Even with minimal makeup, Mama Saldana was giving absolute spicy Latina vibes with fit, flare, and feathers.
4. Solange Knowles in David LaPort
This naturalista always knows how to make a statement and she does it beautifully in color. From the hair to leather thigh high socks to the clear heel, this look is EVERYTHING!

5. Aja Naomi
This How To Get Away With Murder star and chocolate hottie looks perfect in her tangerine color dress. She murdered the red carpet with her melanin, perfectly teezed hair, and gorgeous lip color.
6. Beyoncé Knowles in Givenchy
Like Queen Bey says ” I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress .” This jaw dropping silhouette has been rushing to the kitchen for a glass of lemonade.
7. FKA Twigs
Ms. Twigs knows how to accessorize an outfit to a T. Looking like a Queen with her head piece, body belt, and arm candy, she makes me want to dive into my mothers jewels.
8. Zoe Kravitz
Even though this look might have a lot going on, Kravitz knows how to keep it cute. I must say, the lace mask gives her a mysterious look with a magical twist, which I love!
9. Willow Smith
I love that Willow and her brother, Jaden, are holding hands #siblinglove. The dread heads make a dynamic duo with their dope hair styles while looking classic in black.
10. Misty Copeland
Misty missed me with this outfit. I wanted her to give me some pizazz, like she gives the audience while performing as Principal at the American Ballet Theatre. No matter what, she is still effortlessly beautiful.
11. Naomi Campbell
Muva Naomi can slay anything! She has been in this game for over 20 years and her black, still doesn’t crack!
12. Nikki Minaj
Being one of TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Influential People, this dress didn’t influence me too much. No matter what, Ms. Nikki is all about having control over her career and collecting her checks, all while having her eyeliner on FLEEK!
13. Ciara in H&M
This bride-to-be makes me smile with her cool dance videos and bubbly personality, but this hair color… not so much. Looking daring and sophisticated in H&M, she makes me feel that if she can rock this silver caged dress, so can I.
14. Kerry Washington
I love me some Kerry Washington, even when she is having an off hair day. The high slit dress paired with elbow length gloves is a gorgeous look, plus you can never go wrong in black.
15. Jourdan Dunn in Balmain
Ms. Dunn had me stunned. Styled in silver from head to toe, she had me feeling very futuristic. Lastly, that waist was SNATCHED!

16. LaLa Anthony
A sleek ponytail, grungy eye makeup, and the color red sounds like a killer combo. Lala was giving me fever, looking like one hot tamale!
17. Amandla Stenberg in Calvin Klein
This afrolicious superstar had me loving her wine red, wide leg pant suit. Her cute choker and detailed headband added such cool vibes to her classic look.

18. Joan Smalls in Balmain
Joan Smalls was doing big things while she walked the red carpet in her crystalized Balmain gown. Those long legs looked gorgeous with that thigh high slit.

19. Jennifer Hudson in H&M
Hudson looked very angelic in her white H&M gown. Her train was so gorgeous, she too had to look back at it a few times.

20. Herizen F. Guardiola
The star of the new Netflix series The Get Down, stepped out in a green fitted dress that complemented her beautiful skin. She showed off her natural beauty with a high bun, minimal makeup, and bare lip.
