OSCARS RED CARPET: Nothing Hidden About THESE Figures: Taraji P Henson Flosses In Blue Velvet, Octavia Spencer Feathers Out
Two of our faves made sure they were anything but Hidden on this year's Oscars red carpet. Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer showed out, and we've got their looks inside...
Hidden Figures was up for Best Picture, so that means the leading ladies needed to bring it. And that they did.
Taraji bronzed up every body part and served vintage Hollywood glamour in a blue velvet Alberta Ferretti gown and a neck full of diamonds. While we wish she would have gone extra modern with the hair, maybe a long straight bob, the look is a winner nonetheless.'
With the boobs pushed up and an extra toned leg pushed out under a sky-high slit, Mama T was on her look-at-me status Sunday night in Hollywood.
Gather the people Taraji!
And if you think this look took forever to perfect, think again. Her stylist Jason Bolden revealed she doesn't even do fittings. He said during the E! pre-show:
“She’s a certified actress, she doesn’t do fittings. So when you get 5 minutes with her you better come with two dresses you know will work.”
By the way, to add to her boss status even more, Pharrell revelaed on the red carpet you can basically park a plane in her new crib. Sheesh!
And she still brought that smile we all love.
Her co-star Octavia Spencer, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, switched up her style (finally). She backed away from her usual safe Tadashi Shoji frock and slipped into a pool of feathers in the best way possible.
She went with Marchesa, and we're glad she did. By the way, Octavia revealed she's hopping straight on a plane after the big night to head to NYC. She's set to host "SNL" this week. Nice!
The ladies may not have won for Best Picture, but they certainly won this carpet.
