Keke Palmer has gone from child star to red carpet siren with the help of Sergio Hudson.

The talented Black designer is a favorite of celebrities, including BeyoncéZendayaTracee Ellis Ross, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and even our forever First Lady Michelle Obama. 

Us regular girlies have to trot to our local Target to get our hands on Hudson’s genius, but Palmer has the designer on speed dial to take her looks to the next level as she shows out at premieres and galas. According to Vanity Fair, she first wore Hudson on Ellen in 2014, where she promoted her appearance on Showtime’s Masters of Sex in a flouncy red houndstooth mini the designer.

She chose to channel the American icon for the theme of “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” 

“It was important for me that for my first Met gala, I wear something eye-catching, but also something that’s timeless, so when I look back on it 20 years from now, I can say: ‘That could be worn today and still be just as fabulous,” Palmer told Vogue about the selection. 

Ross isn’t the only “Boss” in the entertainment industry. Palmer rocked a strapless dress from Sergio Hudson at her “Big Boss” premiere.
