If you tuned into the 54th annual NAACP Awards on February 25th, then you know that Black Hollywood turned out in full and in style. One favorite BCKOnline face, Marsai Martin, delivered nothing less than Hollywood glamour.
Clad in a black Christian Siriano, the Black-ish alum stunned on the carpet as photographers snapped her from every angle. The floor-length dress donned a train, and a long turtleneck with a triangular cutout over her chest. The pièces de résistance were the royal blue taffeta puffy sleeves and taffeta adornment asymmetrically draped over her hips.
The simple elegant chignon with side bang flawlessly highlighted her statement diamond earrings. Although her dress covered her shoes, and she didn’t give her fashionista fans a sneak peek, we do know that the entrepreneur regularly adds brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo to top off her red carpet looks.
Of course, Martin’s Black-ish family was on-hand during the event, including Traci Ellis Ross, Miles Brown and Marcus Scribner, and they all had to document the moment.
The mini-mogul turned 18-years-old in August of 2022, and is vastly becoming one of the most powerful women in Hollywood. She is not only a trend-setting fashionista, but she owns her own production company, and has launched a nail care beauty brand, Marsai by Marsai, that is revolutionizing the industry. Yet, because of her age, people don’t necessarily take her seriously; however, she is definitely trailblazing in spite of.
“In so many ways I’m being underestimated a lot because of my age,” Marsai said during an interview last year. “I used to get, ‘You’re too young to do whatever’ a lot,” she admitted. “But I think now that people see the work that I’m doing and how busy I am with trying to bring out content … they don’t say that anymore,” Martin shared. “[Now] it’s more of them witnessing the unexpected.”
And we cannot wait to witness more. Whether on the red carpet, in the studio, or on screen, we cannot wait to see what is next.
