Would you like to look like a goddess on a red carpet? Let Adut Akech teach it to you in a few little steps.

Case in point: The Fashion Awards 2021 at the Royal Albert Hall on November 29, 2021 in London, England.

Akech looked otherworldly in a purple custom Sergio Hudson cutout ensemble, probably inspired by a design from the Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection.

The look was accessorized with a Kendall Miles Posh bag in the color Lavender, and an abundance of Mateo New York jewels: 14kt diamond bar with Onyx drop earrings, a Secret Initial diamond, quartz and 14kt gold ring, an East West diamond, topaz and 14kt gold ring and a 14kt Double Shank Blue Topaz ring among others.

Adut‘s makeup was symple, yet sophisticated, picking up on the colors of her dress. Purple shimmery eyeshadows gently coated her eyelids, with the help of false fluttery lashes.

Some of the products used were mentioned by her MUA Esther Edeme. Here is what we were able to discover:

Tatti Lashes in the style TL3;
CTZN Cosmetics – Clear Globalm;
Brandi Vvici – Rich Chocolate Lip Liner;
Brandi Vvici – Crème de la Crème Lipgloss.
And other products by MAC Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Plouise, Morphe and Fenty Beauty.

Renda Attia styled the Black model’s hair in a long sleek do with a deep side part, using Cloud Nine hair tools.

Akech‘s nails were a work of art, but we weren’t able to find who was responsible for the work. We have an idea in mind judging by the style, but we will await confirmation and then update this space with more information in case anything new emerges.

What about her look? Well, stylists Wayman and Micah never miss when they style women or men. They guarantee your success on the red carpet and their care in selecting pieces that go so well with Black skin tones goes hand in hand with the kindness they show their clients. They are a formidable styling duo, their ideas are very cohesive and they always tell a story. I love following their career.

Adut‘s ensemble is the perfect example of how you can make a woman feel confident and sexy without being vulgar. Also, she is incredibly and adorably cute.


During the show, Adut presented the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator together with Alton Mason. The prize went to Ibrahim Kamara, who was honored for his incredible contribution to culture, art and fashion and his commitment to challenging stereotypes and the status quo.

Gareth Wrighton and Campbell Addy accepted the award on his behalf.
