Keke Palmer’s press-tour style streak continues. The actor turned heads in a black strapless gown at the Berlin premiere of her film “Nope” on July 26. Her dress featured a prominent thigh slit that revealed the entire length of her left leg and was embellished with mirrored plexiglass pieces arranged to resemble a tire track. She kept her accessories relatively low-key, finishing her look with jeweled ankle-strap sandals, diamond earrings, white eyeliner, and waist-length box braids.
Palmer’s daring dress hails from David Koma’s prefall 2022 collection, which the star also repped for her recent Glamour cover story. The range includes a wealth of edgy designs featuring flame motifs, crystal crocodiles, and the aforementioned tire-track pattern.
Thigh-grazing slits have been a popular red carpet choice among celebrities this year — see: Lizzo, Selena Gomez, and Ciara — but Palmer’s take on the trend is perhaps the most extreme we’ve seen yet. She similarly went all in on the low-rise-skirt trend in a Marc Jacobs getup at the “Nope” premiere in Los Angeles earlier this month. Other memorable looks from her recent press tour include the sheer metallic Prada dress she wore on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the sparkly Prabal Gurung minidress she wore on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” and the lime-green Christopher John Rogers separates she wore on the “Today” show.
