according to people, ayo wore a loewe gown designed by jonathan anderson. the floor-length dress featured a halter top and a vine-like detail draping across her back. as for ayo’s makeup, she upped the ante with lots of pink blush, a natural lip (so the blush can be the spotlight), and a celestial highlighter on the high points of her face, collarbone, and shoulders.
