Danai Gurira in Cushnie et Ochs at the 2016 Black Girls Rock! Awards

Posted on April 06, 2016

“The Walking Dead” actress Danai Gurira attends the 2016 Black Girls Rock! Awards at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey.

 

Y’know, we saw these shots the other day, dismissed them as “just another pantsuit” and walked on by. But we happened to open up the thumbnails this morning only to realize how wrong we were. This isn’t just another jumpsuit…

It’s a SPECTACULARLY fitted jumpsuit. And if you’ve been following celebrity style for any length of time, you know that’s about as rare as a winged unicorn.

It’s such a simple outfit, but the perfect fit and the fact that it plays so well against her coloring is what makes it really stand out. We’re not too keen on the clutch that looks like a medi-kit, but the gold sandal was a perfect choice. We’d normally say a look like this requires some big statement jewelry pieces, but she was exactly right to keep all that stuff toned down. It’s all about that perfectly fitted garment perfectly framing her face and body and setting them off to their best advantage. Except for the clutch, we wouldn’t change a thing. Well done all around.
