And, as in years past, the event will surely be a night of surprises, stand-out performances, and jaw-dropping fashion.

We are, unapologetically, rooting for everybody Black as we gag over style moments on the red carpet, on stage, and in the audience.

Front-runner Da’Vine Joy Randolph topped off an exciting, award-winning run tonight. She accepted the “Best Supporting Actress” award for her performance in “The Holdovers.”

On stage and on the red carpet, the Golden Globe, Critics ChoiceScreen Actors Guild, and now Oscar winner looked fabulous. Da’Vine’s curvy figure slayed in a custom ice-blue Louis Vuitton gown.

The dress included a halter neckline, shimmer bodice, over-the-top feather sleeve, and dramatic train. Styled by Wayman and Micah, Da’Vine accessorized her look with a pair of Moussaief diamond drop earrings.

Black Hollywood is ‘haute’ on the 96th Academy Awards carpet.

Other Black Hollywood celebrities also turned heads on tonight’s carpet. Wearing everything from dramatic gowns and custom ensembles to sophisticated suits and sleek dresses, some of our favorite stars brought the heat.
