I have no words, there are truly no words when it comes to how beautiful Taraji’s speech was last night at the MTV Movie and TV awards.
Taraji P. Henson, thank you for that speech.
Listen to it, you won’t regret it.
Hey everyone! We are so happy to be back guest blogging for Celebrities Are Tragic! This is always such a fun thing for us to do and we love the fashion of any award show, but something about The Academy Awards is just so magical. We were surprised this year by the lack of dresses that we loved. There were plenty of ones we didn’t like but we like to spread fashion positivity because those women felt beautiful, so who are we to tell them they’re not?! We kinda wanted to do a best dressed after party list because that is where the fashion was! We did include on look from an after party so keep on reading to check who made the list! Congrats to all the beautiful ladies who were nominated and who won! As always feel free to follow us on twitter! Thanks Willi Killiams!
We decided to add in an after party look because we honestly didn’t have many favorites this year, which is shocking because usually everyone brings it! But when we saw this dress we had to give it a shout out! This was the perfect party dress to show up in. We loved the gold color with all the butterfly and flower appliques looked like they were floating on her dress. It was the perfect combination of fun and sexy. We loved the shoulder detail and black belt. We were so happy she wore her hair up because when you have a dress like this, you don’t want to take away from it. Overall she nailed it! Best After party dress for sure goes to Elizabeth.
This dress was so elegant and girly. We were obsessed from the moment we saw it! Her designers had a painter flown in to hand paint the dress while she was in it so the flowers could all be appropriately placed because the fabric was so sheer. That is couture! Her Smokey eye was beautiful and brought the drama. We loved that she kept her hair up to show off the high neckline of the dress.
She brought the sexy to the red carpet! Everything from the silhouette to the neckline was stunning. It looked black on TV and pictures but it was actually a deep navy blue. We loved the simple shoes because her necklace was so extravagant. We also loved that she did a bob hairstyle to show off the deep v-neckline and necklace. Loved it!
This dress will go down as one of the most iconic Oscar dresses in history. She looked like a regal queen floating on the red carpet. There was so much detail in this dress. We loved the bodice, it was totally giving us Halle Berry vibes circa 2002 when she won her Oscar. The sheer fabric with the lace beaded appliques were stunning. Hair and makeup was on point! She has dream eyebrows that we all want!
SO beautiful. Everything about this dress was amazing. The silhouette, the color, the neck line. Just perfection! Her hair and makeup was flawless. This was a dress to win in! Aside from looks, her speech was so inspiring and she moved us to tears! Congrats Viola, we love ya!
God damn Taraji P. Henson is coming in hot on the Oscars red carpet!
She is rocking a velvet dress, and apparently velvet is very much in this season. I had no idea that velvet would ever be a fashionable choice, it looks like it’s time to breka out those Juicy sweatsuits!
Taraji isn’t nominated for her personal performance tonight but ‘Hidden Figures’ is but I am hoping that it is able to pull out the big win. It would be awesome.
Just a little fun fact, Taraji is one of my favorite celebrities because once time she was drunk at the Super Bowl and posted on Instagram about how much she loved Maroon 5, but it was Coldplay performing. That’s my girl right there!
Slay Taraji, we are not worthy.
Last night the movie ‘Hidden Figures’ stunned everyone by winning the best cast ensemble statue. Most people were thinking it would go to ‘La La Land’ but it looks like the Screen Actors Guild decided that this movie was more deserving!
This movie is clearly about women who were not given credit for all that they did to help send a man to the moon. I do love that she said the movie is about unity though, that’s an important message that shouldn’t be lost.
“They didn’t complain, they focused on solutions.”
Taraji P. Henson , you’re incredible. This speech was beautiful and it was so important, we needed it right now.
Taraji P. Henson rocked the most popular color of the night, yellow, on the red carpet!
Taraji is an absolute queen though, and I mean that. She is seriously so hysterical, in her interviews, on social media, all of that. She is a hard working actress, who kills it as Cookie on ‘Empire’.
Thank you for looking beautiful and looking like a ray of sunshine!
This was my favorite part of the entire Super Bowl. I mean the halftime show was awesome, don’t get me wrong but this, this is legendary. There is such confidence in that caption too. Maroon 5 is life to her, but she thinks that Coldplay is Maroon 5. Does it even matter?
Thank you Taraji for giving this to the world.
