Fresh off her restful babymoon with boyfriend Darius Jackson, Keke Palmer is back to work. On Jan. 4, the “Nope” star attended the 2023 New York Film Critics Circle Awards in NYC, marking her first red carpet event since announcing her pregnancy on “Saturday Night Live.” Wearing a silver maxi dress embellished with illuminating sequins from Michael Kors Collection, the 29-year-old actor cradled her growing baby bump.
The eye-catching gown incorporated super-skinny straps and side cutouts that drew attention to the massive floral tattoo on her rib cage. Palmer, who worked with styling duo Wayman and Micah to curate her look, accessorized with matching silver platforms and a dainty assortment of jewelry including a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. Her sparkly appearance comes a day after she was spotted in another flattering dress at a “Nope” Q&A in NYC. On Jan. 3, she wore a knit lavender maxi with a halter neckline and keyhole cutout, which she paired with a boxy trench coat.
The multihyphenate planned quite the stylish pregnancy reveal during her “SNL” hosting debut. During the Dec. 3 episode, Palmer wore a monochromatic brown ensemble from Sportmax, consisting of a trench coat and cargo pants. In the middle of her opening monologue, she opened the outerwear to unveil her bump in a cropped fitted blouse.
Considering Palmer’s experimental style as a fashion chameleon, it’s safe to assume there are more striking maternity outfits to come. See more photos of the KeyTV founder’s latest red carpet look ahead.
