Happy Friday to Keke Palmer and this glittery gold ensemble only. The actress and singer stopped me halfway through doom scrolling this morning with a feathery two-piece set as she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! overnight. It truly is the little things in lockdown. Taking to social media, it’s quite apparent she was feeling the ensemble too with the caption reading, “Did I serve a LOOK tonight on @jimmykimmellive or NAH!!?? 😏😏.”
The golden look was by Lebanese haute couture designer Georges Chakra and styled by Seth Chernoff. The set featured a cropped off-the-shoulder bodice and sheer midi skirt adorned with feathers and clusters of pearls and sequins. Think seventies disco (feathers are having a huge moment right now) with roaring twenties-esque embellishments. It’s exactly the kind of ensemble that must be danced in – fitting for a post-pandemic party.
Palmer and her magnetic energy appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show with special guests host, Sean Hayes. Big things are coming for the actress who recently announced her involvement in the new film, Nope, directed by Jordan Peele. Details of the project are tightly under wraps but it is expected to release on July 22, 2022.
Last month the 27-year-old was nominated for an Emmy Award for her Facebook Watch show Turnt up with the Taylors (and our new lockdown obsession). The series follows a family who tries to navigate the future of their reality television series “Taylor Time” after the family’s daughter Chelsea “Barbie” Taylor chases solo fame. It’s hilarious, partly because Palmer plays every character.
“I don’t know why I did that,” Palmer admitted. “It really is a lot of work. I take my hat off obviously to every entertainer that I’ve seen do it. Growing up you’ve see Amanda Bynes do it at 12-years-old and obviously Eddie Murphy, one of my favourites, and Martin Lawrence and stuff like that. So I thought why not.”
She added, “When I created Chelsea, it was because I felt like a lot of times we don’t really get to see that Black girl character that is like Chelsea. Almost a Paris Hilton-esque vibe.”
