#SpiceStyleStar: Gugu Mbatha-Raw at the African-American Film Critics Association Awards

The 6th Annual African-American Film Critics Association Awards (AAFCAs) took place on Thursday 5th February at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood, and brought stylish stars like Chadwick Boseman, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oeylowo and more out for the night, with many bagging awards and dazzling on the red carpet.

But the celeb who stood out most for us was South African actress, Gugu Mbatha-Raw of the movie Belle, who was spied looking gorgeous in a floral frock and became our Style Star of the Week;

We at SPICE just adore the stunner’s romantic red carpet look – appropriate for our month thinking about our ‘love of fashion’ and with Valentine’s Day on its way, and thought the fit-and-flare dress, with thin straps and flowing hem, looked both beautiful and ultra feminine…

Gugu, who took home the award for ‘Best Actress,’ looked just as pretty as her dress, pairing it with black pumps and a black box clutch, and rocking a minimal makeup look and a softly bound up ‘do.  Princess features or what?

But tell us what you think of Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s red carpet look – does it deserve our title of Style Star of the Week? Let us know your thoughts below in the comments or on Twitter @SPICETVAFRICA.
