Rosario Dawson Wears LBD And Wins NAACP Award

  • Pin it

I always had the feeling Rosario Dawson was high above the Hollywood clique. Up until the NAACP Image Awards (40th edition) (where she was awarded for best actress in a motion picture)

Her black dress was perfect, she was wearing it with amazing grace. Her hair somewhat matched the 50s dress, she could’ve paired all that with another type of shoes (some peep-toe pumps, ideally!) but let’s call it a bad shoes day… (don’t miss the rest of the pictures right after the jump!)

Rosario Dawson is picture perfect, until you look at her face. I don’t know if she was baking cookies before getting her (normally) gorgeous self to the NAACP (The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Awards, but all that wrongfully and abusively applied white foundation on her face/neck better have a good explanation!

What do you think she had in mind when she applied that makeup foundation? (more about the NAACP here, the complete list of winners here) (photos via)

i agree on the shoes; bad choice

She looks lovely ( I love her dress) and yes she could have made a better choice in shoe wear, but as for the makeup thing I have no idea what to suggest.

She needed a bit of golden tones added to the foundation they used on her face. I have her skin coloring and use to model(I’m light skinned african american) but I did a lot of latin magazines, as well as African american ads. I had to always bring my own foundation to blend with what the makeup artist had, because they hardly ever got it right.
They would either grab the darkest foundation which was always too dark or a medium shade which had way to much pink in it and would give off a white look on my light brown to golden skin. I eventually found a foundation that worked and always gave it to all the makeup artist who worked on me.
Other than the Joan Crawford pancake, Rosario looks fantastic. She’s gorgeous.

Could it be this photo is shoot from the wrong angle or the light was bad?

Oh whatever! stop with the jealousy! white people go lighter or sometimes darker in foundation…why are you giving latinos or black people heat?? its personal preference…she doesnt look ashy or nothing…She’s gorgeous! stop analyzing crap and finding flaw where there is none
