Cynthia completed the look with matching pink nails and soft waves in her fiery red hair.
The delicate eyelet one-shoulder midi dress, styled by celebrity stylist Jason Bolden, is from the designer’s Resort 2021 collection. We loved the dress so much that we found two similar pink ruffled versions for less.

Cynthia rocked the dress as she promoted her new series Genius Aretha on National Geographic.
“It took an army of brave and talented people to bring #GeniusAretha to life,” Cynthia captioned the ethereal clip. “Let me be clear. It’s never ever just me. The cast and crew went through great lengths to make this special and befitting of Queen Aretha. We all see the finished product, but we rarely see the tireless efforts of the people who put it all together.”
