Keke Palmer hit the red carpet in a shimmering sequined Michael Kors evening gown for the New York Film Critics Circle Award on Wednesday night. It marks one of the first public appearances for the actor since she stylishly announced her pregnancy on Saturday Night Live last month. The buzzed-about reveal involved a dramatic blazer unbuttoning, sending the internet into a tailspin.
Palmer, 29, is not slowing down on the memorable maternity fashion moments. For last night’s red carpet, she seemingly turned into a mesmerizing disco ball and hugged her growing bump with a smile. The outfit was styled by Palmer’s go-to styling duo Wayman Deon and Micah McDonald and was accessorized with a Lorraine West choker.
The Nope star is glowing. Literally. Palmer has long been forthcoming about her struggle with recurrent acne breakouts. Today on Instagram she revealed they have stopped during her pregnancy. “I’ve found the secret to clearing up my acne and guess what it is? You need to get knocked up. Period point blank period,” Palmer said, jokingly.
Palmer, who received critical acclaim for her role in Jordan Peele’s Nope, has been floated as a strong contender for the Oscars Best Supporting Actress category. Our fingers are crossed for a nomination. One, because she deserves it. Two, because Palmer and her growing bump would be sure to bring it on the red carpet.
