I just couldn’t get over how amazing Ms. Cicely Tyson looked at tonight’s BET Honors ceremony which took place on January 15, 2011. Ms. Tyson, every bit of 78 years of age, was flawless in her black and white reptile-embossed gown with a high-neck detail and white train (LOVE IT-so classic diva!). She wore long diamond teardrop earrings, a simple bracelet, black pointy toe pumps and carried a black satin clutch. Ms. Tyson topped the outfit with flawless makeup featuring a traditional smokey eye, copper enhanced cheeks and a red/burgundy lipstick with a gloss finish. Her hair was styled with a chic bob cut wig. She was doing her thang and killin’ so many of the other attendees.
However, that will require 2 or 3 follow-up articles for me to discuss all of the train wrecks that occurred at the event. I.E., Debra Lee, I’m sooo sorry, but Ms. Lee’s stylist needs to be officially terminated. TERMINATED, ya hear?!?! She succeeds at looking a hot mess at every televised event and I can’t for the life of me figure out why. I mean really, can we find something a little more flattering and some makeup that enhances?? I just didn’t like anything about what she had going on. Okay, over my rant. Much kuddos go out to Ms. Tyson and her glam squad though!! They succeeded in making the Theatrical Arts Honoree glamourously gorgeous!!
