Fantasia Barrino Is Slaying 'The Color Purple' Press Tour

The star has consistently served fashion-forward styles that keep us wanting more.

In just under a month, the eagerly awaited debut of the 2023 adaptation of "The Color Purple" will grace our screens, featuring Fantasia Barrino in the leading role of Celie. Familiar to many from her Broadway performance in 2005, this role served as a catalyst for her international acclaim, propelling her star power and influencing her evolving fashion sense.

As she tours to promote the Oprah Winfrey-produced production, the multi-talented artist, known for her transition from actor to singer, continues to captivate audiences with her diverse and striking attire, both domestically and internationally. Throughout her journey, one constant remains: her iconic pixie cut, a signature element of her style.

Gotta love it!

As the world takes a front-row seat to marvel at Barrino's style evolution, we're reminded with each look that our girl has been a star since before her early days on "Americal Idol," where we first fell in love with her.

Here are some of our favorite looks she has rocked leading up to premiere day on December 25.

  • Sculpted To Perfection

    While in the Big Apple, 'Tasia took the classic suit and tie look to the next level. She rocked Dolce & Gabbana from head to toe, catapulted with a chocolate corseted dress with a black trench coat.

  • Goddess Life

    All hail the queen because she is rightfully deserving of honor. The "Truth Is" singer was truly on her grown woman 'ish in his Christian Siriano gown that draped across her chest and waist.

  • Kaleidoscope Dreamin'

    To be a fashion icon, you have to step out of the box, like this star. With this look, she left a mark on the crowd and our hearts.

  • Standin' On Business

    Now, 'Tasia, you better work it like a boss! While donning Sergio Hudson, Fantasia commands attention like she was born for this. Yellow + black has never looked better.

  • The Prototype

    If you're going to do it, you might as well do it right. Fantasia was picture-perfect while rocking this platinum number. That look back is something else. Don't hurt 'em girl!

  • Glory Days

    One thing for certain, and two things for sure, when we wear white, we put that thang on! The Grammy winner was a dream made reality in this Hanifa dress.

  • Vibin' In Violet

    Now we know it was just a matter of time before she broke out a purple number, and baby, this did not disappoint. With legs for days, and melanin like hers, this look is top-tier.
