Keke Palmer always makes her style on point, proving how she stunningly handles an outfit on the red carpet.
Thanks to the actress’s full booking in film roles – she stars in three feature movies and quite a few TV shows this year – she has countless red carpet appearances.
Palmer is always ready for any photo op. She knows how to use every opportunity that comes her way and makes the most out of it.
She continued her successful streak at the Nope LA premiere on Monday evening. The newest movie she stars in by Jordan Steele has been met with rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
Palmer stunned the red carpet with a va-va-voom-filled, Y2K grunge runway outfit by Marc Jacobs. The trendy look had a corset top, the designer’s favored Kiki platform boots, and a skirt – a low-slung one.
Low-rise pants are not just a fad. They are here to stay, says Palmer.
“Mama likes to lengthen her torso at all times,” the actress says. “And that’s on God.”
Trio’s Reunion is Triple the Fun: Palmer, Wayman and Micah
Keke called LA’s styling pair, Wayman and Micah, to help her with this project. The trio has had a deep connection: Wayman and Micah dressed Keke from 2014 – 2016, when she anchored Just Keke, a BET talk show, ahead of parting ways to engage in different interests.
“Through the years, we always kept in contact,” Wayman says.
The event brought them back together following a break of six long years. Wayman and Micah, who have styled Regina King (twice), Tessa Thompson, and Tiffany Haddish, wanted to urge Keke into taking on a new direction for their reunion.
In Nope, Palmer is always “covered up” and styled “very relaxed.” Hence, the two began the concept of contradicting the character’s usual dress-up.
Looks Can Turn You into a New Person
Palmer says she immediately knew the look would be perfect for her big night.
“I loved that this look made me feel fierce immediately upon putting it on!” she states.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Marc and his artistry for years, so I jumped at the opportunity to wear one of his designs for the premiere. It made me feel powerful and effortless at the same time, which is very hard to do. In the end, the entire look, mixed with my braids, really felt futurist yet classic – which I thought was perfect for the Nope premiere and fit the theme of the film.”
We are eager to see what Palmer has in store for us this year. She always gives such stunning looks and red carpet moments.
However, the most important lesson she learned from the constant uproar of press tours is, “Sometimes less is more.”
