Queen Latifah attended the 2023 amfAR Cannes Gala yesterday in Cap d’Antibes, France. Latifah attended with her partner Eboni Nichols.
The “Last Holiday” star was outfitted in a suiting-inspired dress by Lanvin in all-white. The garment was comprised of a blazer-like bodice with structural shoulders, wide lapels, shallow pocket detailing and long sleeves finished with a coordinating white tie.
Following button closures, the dress transitioned into a floor-sweeping skirt and an equally elegant train that trailed behind Latifah as she traversed the blue carpet.
As for accessories, Latifah sported diamond-encrusted dangling ears with a high-shine silver watch, also encrusted with diamonds and a singular statement-making diamond ring.
Although her footwear wasn’t visible thanks to the lengthy hem of her ensemble, the “Set It Off” actress likely wore some sort of pointed-toe platform heel in a matching neutral tone that streamlined and further elevated her ensemble.
Over the years, Latifah has become known for wearing sleek shoes on the red carpet, ranging from wedges to peep-toe and platform pumps from top brands like Gucci. Strappy stiletto sandals are one of her go-to styles as well, hailing from top brands including Jimmy Choo. When off-duty, she can usually be seen in Nike sneakers, though she’s also worn fashionable pairs by Prada and Lanvin as well.
