Meet Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Your Next Style Crush

The actress has some serious red carpet fashion chops.


If you haven't heard of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, get used to seeing the unique name. The British actress became internationally recognized for her acclaimed role in Belle and was the star of this fall's Beyond the Lights. And this is only the beginning.

What first caught our attention, of course, was her impeccable red carpet style. Her aesthetic is a little Kerry Washington with a touch of Jessica Alba, and the result is all her own. From classic gowns to chic blazer, see all of her best looks—so far.

I work with a great stylist who’s always introducing me to new people and trying to challenge me. It’s great to be expressive on the red carpet. I’m pretty boring otherwise!"
