Elle cover model and actress, Cicely Tyson, 92, arrived at the Alvin Ailey Opening Night Gala in style. The actress wore a fringed Missoni top and looked oh so stylish! Other guests in attendance included Janelle Monae, Queen Latifah, Janet Mock and Lion Babe’s Jillian Hervey.
She paired the look with sneakers for an upscale athleisure look. Your grandmother could never! The actress was there to celebrate Debra L. Lee, whom the gala honored. The gala raised over $2.4M to support new works, scholarships, and educational programs. Wow!

Cicely Tyson wearing a customized pussyhat to the Alvin Ailey Opening Night Gala last night made my morning. The pussyhat was worn by people everywhere at and in support of the Women's March. The original idea was started by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman and is called the Pussyhat Project. (The fringe Missoni is pretty bad ass too). This is how you resist, fashionably. ❤️ #CicelyTyson #NationalTreasure #WomensRights
She wore a raisin colored lip and red eye shadow. Her best accessory was her pussyhat. Could she be giving nod to the Women’s March and supporting our liberation and equality movement? The hats are an idea started by Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, officially called The Pusshyhat Project. The website states, “The pussyhat is a symbol of support and solidarity for women’s rights and political resistance.”
A look that is both fashionable, political, and comfortable? It’s a win in our book.
