We brought you all the glitz and glamour from the red carpet of the 2017 Black Girls Rock Awards, which held over the weekend (Check it out here if you missed it). The fashion trends at the awards, created by writer, producer, business woman and former model, Beverly Bond, in 2006 to inspire and celebrate trail-blazing and change-making black women the world over, were just as modern and classy as they were stylish and tasteful.
Now, it’s time to take a look at those beautiful fashion trends that made it to our top five looks from the red carpet.
1.The Classic Black Top on Patterned Skirt – Nothing beats the classic black top with long sleeves and low V-shaped neck that goes with pretty much any colour on the red carpet. Here, a yellow hair accessory is combined with a long, flowing patterned skirt accessorized with yellow flowers to contrast beautifully with the black top.
2. The Sexy High Slit Black Dress – We find the high slit black dress sexy! Oh, but we do! We love the way the slit of the dress goes all the way up to the wearer’s thighs and exposes her smooth legs. Silver patterns on the dress and silver studs on the black heeled shoes also perfectly complement the black colour. The near dishevelled hair, light accessories, and the net of the dress all add to make this look sensual.
3. The Floral Tube Dress – There is something about the floral dress that you cannot help but love, and this particular one has got beautiful frills from the waist down. This midi dress with bright floral leave patterns is eye-catching. The dress is hugging in a way that it accentuates its wearer’s shape.
4. The Cute & Elegant Black Ball Gown – This tube black ball gown accessorized with silver studs is as cute as it is elegant. The gown hugs the midriff of its wearer and flows from the waist down. The black and silver earring studs and her bare graceful shoulders add to the beauty of this gown. We are totally in love with this gown!
5. The Deep-Plunged Belted Dress – This dress with the deep plunged neck line looks absolutely ravishing on the red carpet. The belt around the waist gives a slimming effect, while the peach colour of the dress emphasizes the makeup. The slim silver chain and silver shoes make the perfect complement.
