Michaela Jaé Rodriguez served chic glamour at Variety’s Power of Women 2023 event held at The Grill in New York City today. The Golden Globe Award-winning actress was one of the ceremony’s honorees.
For the occasion, Rodriguez donned a strapless cream minidress. The piece was far from simple as it featured a structured square neckline and a dramatic, round feathery hem. Further elevating the moment, the “Pose” star accessorized with hoop earrings and a collection of diamond midi rings.
During the occasion, Rodriguez notably shared her experience facing anti-transgender hatred and the importance of empowerment with the press.
“But any bigoted person that tries to tell me that I don’t deserve to be a woman? I don’t listen to them, because my mom was the one that instilled it in me,” she said. “So, sorry not sorry!”
Giving the look a sparkling boost, the “Loot” actress slipped into a pair of slingback pumps by Christian Louboutin. The glittery silhouette featured a sharp pointed toe, PVC uppers, a supportive strap at the back and a thin stiletto heel.
Slingback pumps are one of the most elegant shoe styles that will never go out of style. The heels are a modern staple as they pair well with daytime or evening attire. The slip-on silhouette matches a variety of looks easily, while the construction of the heels proves to be both luxe and durable.
Variety’s Power of Women: New York is an annual event that honors the achievements of numerous women in business, entertainment and more for their contributions to different causes.
