Danai Gurira In Gabriela Hearst – 2018 Oscars

Danai Gurira wowed at the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) at the Hollywood & Highland Center, joining Meryl Streep, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.

Oyster pink normally projects a girlish innocence, but when I saw the ‘Black Panther’ actress in her Gabriela Hearst Fall 2018 gown, all I could think was ‘fierce.’

I am enamoured with the juxtaposition of the pastel shade with the curving strapless neckline and bustle.

Her shaved, painted head and jewels add further edge to the look, but, I must say that the pooling hem literally drags the entire thing down.

Danai Gurira In Rodarte – 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Danai Gurira attended the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (March 3) in Santa Monica, California.

This elaborate Rodarte Spring 2018 creation conjured from tiers of chiffon possesses the nonchalant elegance we’ve come to expect from the label.

I love how her sunburst Joan Horing earrings perfectly complement the yellow palm print on her dress.

Yellow sandals would’ve been my choice, but the ‘Black Panther’ star opted for Roger Vivier ‘Star’ mules instead.

Danai Gurira In Gabriela Hearst, Cushnie et Ochs & Loewe – Pre-Oscars Events

Danai Gurira lead up to Oscar weekend, saw her taking in three events following the success of her hit new film, ‘Black Panther’.

9th Annual Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree: Her first look came courtesy of Gabriela Hearst’s Spring 2018 collection. It was a smart two-piece look which was seemingly perfect for the event, however, it felt way too muted for Danai for my liking.

2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon: In fresh white with tactile black detailing, this sleeveless dress from Loewe’s Spring 2018 was elevated with the Gabriela Hearst ‘Charles’ block heels in a true Wakanda fashion.

Vanity Fair and Lancome Paris Toast Women in Hollywood: Things took a turn for the better in this Cushnie et Ochs Pre-Fall 2018 vibrant yellow look. I will always associate Danai with bold, beautiful hues. This fitted dress was positively radiant. Gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Ellie’ sandals completed her look.

Danai Gurira In Christopher Kane – 4th Hollywood Beauty Awards

Danai Gurira looked gorgeous in red for the 4th Hollywood Beauty Awards on Sunday (February 25) in Los Angeles, California.

The colour instantly grabs your attention at first, but on closer inspection, this statement style is finished with multiple bow appliqué details which turns up the volume even further.

Danai kept her styling simple and chic with diamond drop earrings adding a touch of glamour.

A deceptive eye-catcher if ever we saw one.

Lupita Nyong’o In Kevin Mayes & Danai Gurira In The Row – ‘Black Panther’ Johannesburg Premiere

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour marched along, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were both in attendance at the Johannesburg premiere on Friday (February 16)—both in looks that vibrantly reflected the heritage of their South Africa setting.

Lupita Nyong’o: The fiery hue of this Kevin Mayes design, not to mention the gold embroidered cutouts, were so striking, as Lupita returned to the bold colours we know and love. More allure came by virtue of the hip-high dual front slits—more visible in movement—an intriguing counterpoint to the sweeping nature of the skirt.

Danai Gurira: The statement piece of this loose and languid navy gown was the bold, textural neck piece as well as her cuffs that added such a relevant flourish to the simple halter design.
