The ladies of the upcoming film, Fences, along with other notable fashionistas brought it last night at the latest stop of the movie’s press tour. In the words of Kanye West it was nothing but Flashing Lights as the starlets graced the red carpet at the Fences NYC Movie Premiere. We got the full style breakdown for you as well as a few deets on the film itself.
Fashion Scene: Fences NYC Movie Premiere
Fences is directed by Denzel Washington who also stars in the movie alongside actress, Viola Davis. Washington and Davis who is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame January 5th were actually reunited by the movie in a way. Both Davis and Washington starred together in the Pulitzer Prize winning play. Therefore, the reprising of their roles for the film just made sense.
Like the play the movie Fences is receiving much accolades from critics. Fences was nominated for 2 Golden Globes, 4 NAACP Image Awards, 3 Screen Actors Guild Awards and a whopping 6 Critics Choice Awards. Viola recently picked up the Critic’s Choice Award for Fences in the category of Best Supporting Actress. Go Viola!
So then, if you were on the fence (sorry we couldn’t resist) about seeing Fences, you shouldn’t be at all. It’s a great movie with a slew of amazing actors and actresses in it. The film hits theaters on Christmas Day.

Now for some fashion! Viola looked fab in the Leonella gown by Cinq a’ Sept. She completed her look with a Tyler Ellis clutch, Stuart Weitzman heels and jewels from Hueb as well as Pasquale Bruni.
Cutie pie Saniyya Sidney stole the red carpet in an adorable pink design by Isabella Couture. Such a tiny princess and it’s always nice to see little girls look like little girls. Moreover, Sidney’s magnetic smile got even bigger when she got to pose for a pic with R&B singer, Usher.
Gymnast Gabby Douglas was also in attendance at the NYC screening held at Fredrick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center. Gabby loved the movie and describes it as “powerful.” Douglas’ tailored jacket slayed and we love that she highlighted her insane physique. With all those years of training she deserves to show it off!
