Queen Latifah brought pure elegance on the red carpet for diverseWomen’s Power: Happened in New York Thursday night.
The “Hustle” star, one of the evening’s honorees, appeared in a sweeping black gown for the occasion. The piece featured an off-the-shoulder silhouette with a herringbone texture and floor-length hem. The actress’ look was paired with a matching sparkling black clutch bag featuring a discreet crystal buckle. She completed her look with diamond strands and matching drop earrings.
Although her shoes were not visible, it is possible that the shoes Queen Latifah chose were high-heeled mules, sandals or high-heeled shoes – the best formal choice for the event. Regardless of the shoe choice, the star was all smiles while standing on the red carpet with her girlfriends Lauren Toussaint and Katie Couric.
