Yaya DaCosta In Tafari – 2012 Women for Women International Gala

Yaya DaCosta attended the 2012 Women For Women International Gala at Koch Theater, Lincoln Center, in New York City on Thursday which honoured Lucy Liu.

The former America’s Next Top Model contestant-turned-actress wore an African print strapless dress by a designer named Tafari based in Brooklyn, New York.

We are seeing African prints in a modern silhouette more and more on the red carpet as Hollywood stars continue to embrace their cultural roots.

Sporting natural locks, Yaya completed her look with glossy bronze lips and gold statement earrings.

    I don’t really care for the dress (despite the fact that I LOVE the orange on her), but she’s gorgeous beyond words!

    i wouldnt call her hair locks… because she doesnt have them

      While I understand the point you’re trying to make, I am certain that in this context FC meant “locks” as another way of describing hair. A lock of hair can be cut off from someone’s “locks”. In the African-American community, typically the “dreadlocked” hair that I believe you mean, is referred to as “locs” in order to distinguish.

    She is gorgeous and I love the natural hair, the earrings, and the fit of the gown. It’s the loud print that’s throwing it off for me. I like the African vibe but not the mustardy orange color.

    An all-round gorgeous BDOTW look.

    i actually really love the 2nd image of her – because it’s all about the her light make up and that amazing natural frizzy hair. The colour of the dress – this bright orange completely compliments her skin tone and her body.

    gorgeous look – very beautiful 🙂

    Viola Davis and Solange Knowles would be proud- Yaya celebrates her natural beauty with flair.

    BDOTW possibly, possibly.

    She looks amazing. Totally BDOTW worthy!

      +1 Spectacular. Hope she makes it the rest of the week.

  18. Yeliz November 12, 2012 at 8:31 pm #

    She looks nice!

  19. Moxie November 12, 2012 at 8:06 pm #

    She looks beautiful. I’ve only watched a few ANTM episodes, but she is one I remember.

    Love the hair and the nude lipstick. I feel the print is a little repetitive, and would have been assisted by a more creative cut and/or placement on the gown, but that color on her skin is sensational!

  21. robbie November 12, 2012 at 7:58 pm #

    LOVE everything about this look. have never heard of her before but she is beautiful.

  22. justme November 12, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

  24. Pati November 12, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    Love this !!!! The colour is stunning against her skin tone! And I love her make up and the hair!

    • CreoleLady November 12, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

      +1. Beautiful!

  25. Grace November 12, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    I would have absolutely loved this if the bodice was fitted better. I hate the way it’s gapping.

  26. AW November 12, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    She’s so regal! It’s not my style but she looks gorgeous, especially her hair.

  27. jones19 November 12, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    Sooo beautiful! Love her hair especially.
