Regina King Comes To Slay Once Again, Hits Oscars Red Carpet In Regal Gown

The "One Night in Miami" director's name means "queen" — and her ensemble certainly looked fit for royalty.

Regina King arrived at the 2021 Oscars in an ensemble fit for royalty. 

The actor and director stunned in a custom blue Louis Vuitton gown that featured prominent flared shoulder sleeves. King rocked a blunt bob haircut and complemented the look with shimmery blue eye shadow and Forevermark jewelry, including drop earrings. 

It’s fitting that King would arrive at the Academy Awards in such regal fashion — after all, her first name means “queen” in Latin.

King won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2019 for her performance in “If Beale Street Could Talk.”
