Debbie Allen shared a gorgeous shot of herself to her Instagram page. The photo captured her in a chic red gown that sported a collar and little black buttons.
The gown had a sleeve that fell just above the wrist, and it had two sashes that could be tied across the middle, making the gown flair out from the waist down.

Her hair was styled in a curly fashion, and for accessories, she wore a gorgeous neckpiece with a matching bracelet. The 70-year-old also had rings on both her hands.
In her captions, Allen reminded her fans that it is almost "gala season," after which she provided a list of things she believes they won't want to miss.
These include a drive-in gala to be held on November 14 at The Rose Bowl, her "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" documentary which airs on Netflix by November 27, and the Virtual Benefit with Nigel Lythgoe which Allen will host herself on December 3.
Fans of the famous actress took to the comments section to acknowledge her message and compliment her fabulous outfit. One fan thanked her, saying Allen made her day because she had wanted to see "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" for some time.
Allen kept appearing on screen, but she also took an interest in what goes on behind it.
Another fan excited to see the show declared that Saturday would be "epic" thanks to Allen. The love her fans have for her may look like a lot, but she deserves it.
Allen is not only an accomplished actress; she's a producer, choreographer, singer-songwriter, and director who graduated as a Bachelor of Arts at Howard University with a focus on classical Greek literature, speech, and theater.
After her graduation in 1971, she dived into the world of performing arts by acting on Broadway. However, she did not start gaining popularity until 1980 when she portrayed Anita in the Broadway revival of "West Side Story."
Her performance won her a Tony Award nomination and a Drama Desk Award. In the year that followed, Allen graced the big screen, making her debut in the movie adaptation of E.L. Doctorow's book adaptation, "Ragtime."
With time, she grew popular in the movie industry. Some of the famous movies she has appeared in include "Women Of San Quentin," "Jo Jo Dancer," and "Your Life Is Calling."
Allen kept appearing on screen, but she also took an interest in what goes on behind it. She ended up choreographing, producing, and directing several projects and up till now, the famous actress still teaches and mentors dancers at her dance academy.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, daily life has slowed to a crawl, and more often than not, people are advised to remain at home to avoid spreading the disease.
Allen did not let that stop her productivity, and she took her dance lessons online. The classes started as early as March, and it was a very informative and uplifting experience made all the more remarkable because it was Allen's way of giving back.
Fans are grateful for the selfless attitude, and this, among many other reasons, is why Debbie Allen is one of America's most loved public figures.
