The cast of The Birth of a Nation has been up and down with their red carpet looks over the course of the promo tour so far and I am praying that they start to hit a stride. The next stop on the promotional road is the London Film Festival where the film will have a gala premiere. I am hoping that we finally get that real big moment from Aja Naomi King, which I have been eagerly awaiting. Aja shares a stylist with Kirsten Stewart so I was looking at some of the brands that Tara Sweenen, their stylist, has worked with and I decided that Aja needs a major Elie Saab moment. I think that the London Film Festival premiere of The Birth of a Nation would be the perfect place for Aja to rock this absolutely major Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture gown which features a plunging neckline, black and white printed wrap style ball skirt, and gorgeous oversized floral embellishments. This is a very dramatic take on a princess moment and I think that Aja would hit the red carpet with great aplomb. I would love to see Aja go for a chic updo with a red lip, dainty diamond drop earrings, and a pair of simple black strappy platform sandals to really send this look into major moment territory. Gabrielle Union can be either hit or miss with her red carpet looks and it has been a while since I have really loved one of her looks. I am hoping that if she makes the jaunt to London to premiere The Birth of the Nation at the London Film Festival that Gabrielle really showcases a gorgeous moment. I went with something a little more modern than she has worn recently with this liquid black sequined Kaufmanfranco Fall 2016 RTW off the shoulder column gown which features a stomach slash and a cut out back. This is modern glamour at it’s best and I think that Gabrielle could make it a really major moment. Where she could make the look go wrong is in the styling. I would add sexy Veronica Lake waves, a bright red lip, diamond drop earrings, a statement cocktail ring, and a pair of strappy back Christian Louboutin sandals to really make this a perfect look for Gabrielle.
