"I worry about VH1 overdoing it. All Stars 2 was such a monumental season, and All Stars 3 just seems like a move to capitalize on the show's popularity and less of an "event". " - Allen

"Worst episode of the season, just messy all around." - Alex

"Trixie’s performance seemed desperate for a win which seems to be her whole arc this season" - Rami

Beauty Break: Ruth Negga For Vogue

Chris here with some leading lady gorgeousness. We're big fans of Ruth Negga's Loving performance here at The Film Experience, and hopeful for her Oscar chances in a crowded Best Actress year. Regardless of whether or not she is one of the eventual five nominees, you can bet on Ruth continuing to serve a fantastic fashion game all season long.

And as Murtada mentioned, she's on the January cover of Vogue! In the interview (after a stunning spread with costar Joel Edgerton in the November issue) the actress describes Loving as a "before and after" role for her, still a bit reserved to her newfound attention. But how can we not be in awe of her with a performance like this and her laidback charm - not to mention her fashion prowess! Check out the photoshoot after the jump...

Gorgeous. I was so excited to see her get this coveted cover.

She looks like a cross between Tracee Ellis Ross and Alicia Keys in these photos.

Hollywood this is who you cast for the unauthorized SADE biopic.

I was going to say Rosa Parks or Billie Holiday, even though they have been portrayed previously with varying degrees of success. Her resemblance to both women when they were young is striking. (She's already won a Best Actress award for playing Shirley Bassey—has anyone reading this seen that TV performance?)

Let's also give it up for 3 other beautiful new(ish) actresses of color - Tessa Thompson, Zazie Beetz, Kiersey Clemons. Really digging on these 3 at the moment.
Lovely and talented.

/3rtful and Paul Outlaw, I also see some Josephine Baker in her.

This really is a gorgeous spread, and I do like her as an actress. I just wish I liked Loving better.
