Keke Palmer has shown that she has pizzazz 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.
In addition to that, Palmer makes superb use of every photo opp. She’s always up to it.
On Monday evening, she did it again at the Nope LA premiere. Palmer has earned talks for her role in the newest mind-blowing movie by Jordan Peele.
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.
According to Palmer, low-rise is an everlasting silhouette, not a fleeting craze.
“Mama likes to lengthen her torso at all times,” the actress says. “And that’s on God.”
A Trio Reunion Should be Unparalleled
For this concept to happen, Keke called LA’s styling pair Wayman and Micah. The three have a profound 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.
Now, the event brought them back together following a break of six long years. Wayman and Micah, who have styled Regina King, Tessa Thompson, and Tiffany Haddish, wanted to urge Keke to take a new director 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.
Outfits Could Make a Whole New Person
Palmer claims that she immediately knew the outfit 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 can’t wait to see what Palmer has in store for us this year. She is sure to give us more 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.”
