The cast of ‘The Color Purple’ and other celebrities at the 2023 Academy Museum Gala

Throughout the fabulous night, stars greeted each other, smiled at cameras, and walked down the event’s red and pink carpet. The event is said to be an essential “pit stop” on the way to the Oscars, as many stars who attend are contending for top movie nods next year.
To that end, the leading ladies of the anticipated The Color Purple dazzled on the carpet. Oprah Winfrey shined in a liquid, sequins long-sleeved purple Dolce & Gabbana gown, showing us she is aging backward. The Color Purple star Taraji P. Henson joined her in wearing a shade of the bold color with an off-the-shoulder, detailed bustier gown from Zuhair Murad

Movie actresses Fantasia Barrino and Danielle Brooks paired in black. Danielle wore a black voluminous gown – with pockets – from a designer she wears frequently, Christian Siriano. While Fantasia opted for a sexier look with a black mesh Dolce & Gabbana dress and an exaggerated fur, feathered collar.
