Since the announcement of the remake of "The Color Purple" with a bold new look on the original, its anticipation has been at an all-time high. Fans are excited about the star-studded cast that includes Fantasia Barrino, Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, Hailey Bailey, Colman Domingo, Corey Hawkins, and H.E.R. Everyone is looking forward to seeing what freshness the cast will bring to this classic film from 1985.
"The Color Purple" was Oprah's debut movie, which earned her an Oscar nomination 38 years ago. Now, she is one of the producers of the film adaptation, making it a full-circle moment for her. As a multi-talented journalist, Oprah has brought her "A" game to the press run, which is refreshing to see. It's great to witness someone promoting their work properly instead of just releasing projects without building any expectations.
Lady "O" has not only been the promoting queen, but she has been eatin' the red carpets and special events up with her different shades of purple; from the lilacs to the royal purples, Ms. Winfrey has been giving us a look-after look, but to be fair she did give us a six-month head start to get the purple fits for opening day. Here are some of our favorite looks; let us know which was your favorite, and do you think "The Color Purple" will win an Oscar this time after being cheated 38 years ago?
