Keke Palmer went for major impact when she hit the red carpet in support of her new movie Nope wearing ultra-long chunky box braids that flowed all the way down her back.
Palmer, who stars in the Jordan Peele film, attended the film’s premiere on July 18 in a white cropped bustier top, low-rise fitted black maxi skirt with suspenders, and long black leather gloves, all from Marc Jacobs, and silver jewelry from Bvlgari. Her hair was the perfect pairing for the graphic black-and-white ensemble with the length hitting past her hips to brush her lower back tattoo, adding to the minimal-yet-funky elements of her outfit. (If you’re curious, the tattoo reads “Renaissance woman.”) The braids, bustier top, and slim skirt gave us a ’90s vibe but could truly be at home in 1998 or 2028.
As for her makeup look, Palmer kept things simple with flawless, glowing skin, lots of lashes, and a glossy lip, an ideal choice for hot summer evenings.
Palmer is the ultimate hair chameleon; she changes up her look often and experiments with all kinds of styles just as easily as she can make a pit stop on Sesame Street or star in a supernatural horror movie. In the past, we’ve seen the actor trying out the wolf cut trend, channeling Grace Jones, and going above and beyond with multiple hair and makeup changes while hosting the MTV VMAs in 2020.
