On-screen as Glee’s Mercedes Jones, Amber Riley portrays a girl with a powerful voice and a divalicious style. At the, Amber brought that diva style to the red carpet with her ruffled red Badgley Mischka gown that seemed to hug her hips and curves and the right spot.
To add that extra bling to her ensemble, Amber accessorized with diamond chandelier earrings and an oversized cocktail ring by Neil Lane.
What was more impressing than Amber's eye-catching gown? Her flawless hair and makeup! Amber's side-swept bangs and gently waved shoulder-grazing locks framed her face which was enhanced with simple, yet elegant makeup.
