It's been a good year for Black directors, with the unsurmountable success of Black Panther, along with Get Out's Oscar nominations. But there will always be a special place in our hearts for Ava DuVernay, who isn't just shattering glass ceilings, but reconstructing them with her vision.
We already know that A Wrinkle In Time, which stars Oprah Winfrey, Storm Reid, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling among others, will have stellar performances given the lineup. But if last night's red carpet premiere in Los Angeles is any indication, then the film will be downright magical. The movie's stars, along with lucky A-listers who got a first glimpse at the film adaptation of the movie, wore rainbow-bright colors to compliment their naturally-textured curls, braids, twists, and whatever else you can think of. Get inspired, ahead.

Let's take a moment to admire the work of art atop Tessa Thompson's head, paired with sharp, graphic blue eyeliner and a magenta lip by makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis. "I wanted to her to look like she is from the future, so hair sculpture made sense," her stylist, Ted Gibson, captioned an Instagram. "There is nothing better than seeing [them] light up before they leave."

Of course Janelle Monáe would be rocking (and nailing) a hot pink power pout, which has become a not-so-subtle nod to feminism. Also, those two-toned eyes, though.
