Mo'Nique embraced history on the red carpet this year. Not only was she wearing an incredibly figure-flattering royal blue dress, but she had a gardenia in her hair -- how very Billie Holiday of her! Though Holiday was not her inspiration. Mo'Nique says her style was a tribute to Hattie McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Oscar. Hattie McDaniel also wore a gardenia in her hair when she accepted an Oscar for her role as Mammy in Gone With the Wind! The nod worked. Mo'Nique won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Precious. Capture a little bit of her historical style and that gorgeous blue color with this braided Bodice Blue Satin Rhinestone Gown, at $99! Those with olive skintones -- or a healthy bit of self tanner -- will look absolutely stunning with this satin blue contrast. Buy Now
