Danai Gurira at the HBO’s Post 2014 Golden Globe Awards After Party

Posted on January 15, 2014

Love this look.


“The Walking Dead” star Danai Gurira attends the HBO’s 2014 Golden Globe Awards After Party held at Circa 55 Restaurant in Los Angeles, California.


It’s sexy and striking and gorgeous. Attagirl. We kinda wish the earrings weren’t pink but aside from that tiny little nitpick, we can’t find a thing to complain about here.

Since it’s bound to come up, we’re pretty sure it’s fully lined, but there are some unfortunate shadows going on.

That backdrop is ugly.

    LOVE HER. she looks fab. the backdrop is terrible.

    • Sarah

      Yeah, it is incredible anybody can manage to look good in front of that mess. Yikes!

  • Ginger

    This is a WERQ in my humble opinion…even with the matchy matchy earrings.

    • acevedob

      Agreed. Definitely a WERQ.

    • heartbot

      Even if they’re pink, they’re gorgeous.

    • Kent Roby

      I agree as well.

  • Sobaika

    Sublime! I would’ve preferred earrings in a more champagne gold.

    • I’d have gone with something green – apatite or tourmaline.

      • Glenn Johnson

        Chrysoprase. Or do you think it would be too bright?

    • KayeBlue

      I feel like that’s so expected. It would be pretty, but I love that she went for it a hundred percent by sticking with uniform color.

  • marlie

    FAB. I would have preferred gold earrings, but she still looks gorgeous.

  • Darren Nesbitt

    Look at those arms and back! Michonne is cut-up!

    • Rhonda Shore

      and nice melons! 🙂

  • luluransom

    Holy freaking cow. That is a gorgeous dress on an even more gorgeous woman.

  • Danielle

    She can behead me ANY DAY

  • Evan

    Does anyone know if she and Lupita are of the same ethnicity (I’m too lazy to look it up)? If so, their ancestral country/region must be filled with beautiful women. They could play sisters.

    • MilaXX

      They are both of African descent but that’s it. Lupita is Kenyan & Danai’s parent I believe are from Zimbabwe.

      • Evan

        Thanks! They both are gorgeous and I definitely think they could play sisters!

        • fursa_saida

          I think mostly they just have the same haircut. If I had to pick a resemblance I’d actually say Viola Davis.

          • Evan

            Yeah, that’s probably better.

          • bringbackbeatles

            She definitely reminds me of Viola Davis in her facial features, particularly her eyes and smile.

          • fursa_saida

            Yes, it was the smile that made me think of it!

  • gabbilevy

    Yeah, but if so, those are some seriously unfortunately placed shadows. As in, exactly where you’d expect them to be if the dress weren’t lined.

    Still, she look gorgeous.

    • kimmeister

      The lining also looks weirdly yellowish in some spots.

    • ampg

      I wonder if the lining went a bit sheer under the flashes.

      • YoungSally

        I don’t think it is really lined….more of a pale pink netting/batiste….pink + brown = yellow — hence the cast….and I think those shadows are exactly what they look like — black thong.

        • Liz Lake

          That flash is revealing all…. black thong, no bra and all. Still she looks pretty fabulous, even if the earrings make me wish she were wearing anything else, even plain diamond studs.

  • MilaXX

    She is so pretty. I am always amazed at how much she transforms to play Michonne. As Michonne she looks physically larger than she really is.

    • mjude

      you are so right about her look as mIchonne. also I just have to say I can hardly wait for WD to return.

    • Qitkat

      I’m glad to know who she is, as I don’t follow the show. She is incredibly beautiful. And I love all the pink, nails and jewelry. There are just not many times pink in accessories is called for, so it just feels right to me. A pink bag would have been too much, so it is the contrast that was needed.

    • Rand Ortega

      (ala The Master Thespian) ACTING!

      • formerlyAnon

        I haven’t thought of The Master Thespian in YEARS. And now I’m sitting here at my desk grinning stupidly. Your good deed for the day is Very Much Done, kind sir.

    • ampg

      I think it’s really smart of her to go for such a soft look for events, since it really highlights her in-character transformation and will help her keep from being pigeon-holed in her career.

  • Constant Reader

    Just gorgeous.

  • princessricky

    is that naeem khan?? the backdrop clashes, and esp with that carpet!!!! who plans these things?

  • sweetlilvoice

    I try not to comment on people’s bodies…but her breasts are amazing. She is just stunning, I love her haircut too. I think that look can be very flattering on the right woman.

  • @Biting Panda

    Who do I gotta kill to get that ring?

    • decormaven

      That is fab, yes? She gets a thumbs-up from me for pretty dress and great accessories. Not familiar with her work; will have to bone up on IMDb.

      • demidaemon

        Yes, a thumbs up for actual jewelry on the RC–and mostly well-picked pieces at that!

  • Pink lace…….. it’s nice! But in this instance. Not all the time.

  • ailujailuj

    oh my. she is wearing a dress only she can or would wear. simply gorgeous. great boobies.

  • Divne.

  • pookiesmom

    I don’t know, she’s a gorgeous lady but those sleeves make her look much more broad-shouldered than she is. I guess I’m in the minority, but I’m not loving this one on her.

    • kimmeister

      The poses aren’t helping, either.

  • Flawless.

  • Eva_baby

    Michonne’s got a nice rack! I like the whole look. She looks fab!

  • Imasewsure

    I hate pink but I love this. Whoever she is, she looks lovely (except for the earrings which are hiddy)

    • Trickytrisha

      She’s the totally bad ass, heart of gold, katana wielding, zombie killing star of The Walking Dead.

      • fursa_saida

        I have seen literally two episodes of that show and have no interest in seeing more, and I am still madly in love with Michonne.

  • SugarSnap108

    I should hate this dress, due to pinkness. But she makes it lovely. (I’m just ignoring the earrings.)

  • Pink lace that doesn’t look Barbie or negligee? WELL DONE.

  • quiltrx

    Very pretty!
    Obviously, whoever set up this backdrop and carpet HATES celebrities. NOTHING was going to look very good photographed against all this!

  • shaziz


  • ThaliaMenninger

    It’s too Krystle Carrington for me, mostly because the wide shoulders and skinny hips thing gives me Nolan Miller in the 80s flashbacks.

  • filmcricket

    Lovely. Please bring it back in May or so.

  • Trickytrisha

    So nice to see her get some love on here! She’s such a striking woman, but few pictures I’ve seen of her are anything but stills from TWD. Sweet dress, in spite of the unfortunate shadows.

  • jjtxgrrl


  • Wendy Lloyd

    I’m drooling over this dress and will probably spend the rest of my evening planning how I can sew my own version. LOVE IT.

  • SewingSiren

    Love. love and love. Even the earrings.

  • bellafigura1

    Reallllly sexxxy.

  • Aurumgirl

    Simply beautiful.

  • Weeeeerrrrrrrrq.

  • alyce1213

    Absolutely gorgeous, but seriously — those are not “shadows.” Sure, it’s lined, but there’s lining and there’s lining. This is very sheer lining.
    One can see everything, front and back.

  • Big Bear

    Already on my long list for Best Dress 2014. Wowsa.

  • lillyvonschtupp

    That’s what I love about sistas with darker hues: they can wear bright colors and kill it.

    Im gonna start sunbathing this summer.

  • Diego!

    Gorgeous. She looks stunning! I love how pink looks on her. I disagree with the earrings. I think they are beautiful and look great with this dress.

  • Gorgeous!

  • KayeBlue

    LOOOOVE. The bright color complements her skin so well and vice-versa. If I had very-dark skin like hers, I’d wear only neons. I actually like the pink earrings, anything else would be distracting, and I love that she doesn’t wear a wig. Wow, her body is solid lean muscle- maybe I should start hauling a katana and killing zombies every day!

  • Anna_Cecilia

    Talk about the right woman for this dress. This dress would be WTF??!! on most people but it’s a WERQ on her, even with the unfortunate shadows.

    What’s up with the Howard Wolowitz’s bedsheets carpet meets opium den decor, HBO?

  • Cee Layton

    I wish I could cast such unfortunate shadows. Sadly, I would cast cravasses

  • carnush

    So pretty. But what’s with the hideous backdrop PLUS leopard print carpet? Why?

  • Stella Zawistowski

    I want to tell her to get her shoulders down and away from her ears, but otherwise, she looks impeccable!

  • Frenchie_M

    She is gorgeous, dress is pretty great, too. The problem with the “shadows” etc. is that the “nude” lining was done assuming a woman with a lighter skin tone would be wearing this dress. It should have been re-lined to match her beautiful skin tone. Pale girls have the opposite problem with “nude” hosiery.

  • formerlyAnon

    Dead flat gorgeous – in pink lace no less! And I love how this adds to the oomph of a strong shoulder. She looks beautiful, chic, healthy AND strong. Girl is definitely having her moment, long may it last and may she be able to catch enough of a breath to savor it.
    (The shadow/transparency is, indeed unfortunate.)

  • I love the matchy earrings. I just don’t think she should have had a matchy ring, too.

  • Kathy Monkman

    Wow, I had to do a double take from her WD character. She’s gorgeous!

  • KinoEye

    Very sexy and sophisticated all at once. Man, that color looks great against her skin. Wish I owned a dress like this in a different color!

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    SO PRETTY!!! That’s our Pretty For the Day, isn’t it, Uncles?

  • EEKstl

    Brevity is so much easier when one gets it right. Lovely.

  • demidaemon

  • She knocks it out of the park every time. Beautiful.

  • shelley514

    Her bod is banging.
