    I love the free-flowing, feminine and delicate dress that Lucy Liu is wearing even though I personally would not be comfortable spending an entire evening in a dress with such a low neckline. I also happen to really love her tv show Elementary and that the writer of the series had the guts to cast a Joan Watson instead of John Watson.

    Sophie Okonedo is a friggin bombshell in that dress she certainly got the flower power memo. Lucy Liu once an angel always an angel, too beautiful!!! Danai Gurira is one hot chocolate! Hot hot hot! Did Alicia Quarles leave E! to be a stage actress? Leona Lewis certainly curvier than the last time I saw her she looks beautiful still! I love her! Saorsie Ronan ethereal as always, my Young Hollywood #WCE. And my fashion sweetheart Tavi Gevinson looking chic as ever! I’m so passionate about stage/theatre acting and hopefully one day, I’ll be on Broadway, London’s West End and at the Tonys!!! Amen!

    Nicolette Robinson seems to remind me of a young Jada Pinkett-Smith. #whatabeauty
