The 2024 awards season officially got underway with the 81st annual Golden Globes ceremony, which was broadcast live on January 7, 2024, from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
And after a spectacular run last award season, Abbott Elementary star Sheryl Lee Ralph continues to entrust one very close person to style her for all her major award show moments: Her daughter Ivy Coco. Ralph made a glamorous arrival on the red carpet donning a yellow-and-black Safiyaa gown. She was iced with a Daniel William Diamonds necklace and a Fernando Jorge ring. She shouted out Ivy Coco, telling news outlets, “I’m so happy to say, my daughter is my stylist.”
Ralph attended the awards in support of her sitcom, which earned a Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy nomination.

Saint International model Sabrina Nugent is featured in the Pre-Fall 2024 collection of Jamaican womenswear designer Francesca Lake. Shot by film-maker/photog Storm Saulter, the new collection explores church and dancehall tropes and finds balance at the intersection of Cross Roads, Kingston, in Jamaica.
From the designer:
A derivative of FW23’s Church and the Dancehall begs the question: “Where is she going?” I respond, “I’m going to both.” Serving equally as geographic location and metaphor for the intertwining of dual paths, Cross Roads, Kingston, Jamaica is the response to its seasons’ prior.
Where FW23 serves as the sculptural, visceral, and emotive vehicle to tell the story of contrasting worlds; PF24 is the space where the viewer becomes the engager in the continuation of that story, as it takes shape through the first ready-to-wear collection.
From collaboration with both renowned local typography artist Nurse Signs @nursesigns to legendary female figure in the dancehall fraternity Dancehall Queen Carlene Smith @dancehallqueencarlene, encapsulating nuances of our cultural epitome, this collection embodies the bravado and poise of Jamaican persona.
