Emmy-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph opted for a colourful red carpet look. The star rocked a custom-made Pistis Ghana dress in bright orange featuring Kente print ruffle sleeves, a bead-encrusted bodice and a Kente print skirt with added brown detailing at the train and a mermaid-style silhouette. She accessorized with gold statement earrings from Misho and a ring from Nikos Koulis.

To create her look for the evening, Ralph worked with her daughter and go-to stylist Ivy Maurice, who was the force behind her mother’s recent Super Bowl performance look.

As for makeup, Sheryl opted for a classic look with matte nude lips, blush, bold lashes and smoky eyeshadow. Hair-wise, she went for a middle part and had the back pulled into a ponytail.

Sheryl was nominated at this year’s NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in ABC’s hit sitcom “Abbott Elementary.”
