Style File: “The Hate U Give” Star Amandla Stenberg in Miu Miu and Ralph & Russo Couture

Posted on November 06, 2018


Amandla’s been out there, keeping things pretty tight on the style front as she promotes her critical-buzz film. She’s all-in on the poledance and she’s branding herself pretty well in the process. There’s nothing more fun for us to cover than a starlet figuring out the style and promo ropes as she climbs the ladder, to somewhat HORRENDOUSLY mix our metaphors.

Anyway, onward. To cute-chicness.

What is not to love here? Sure, the outfit might be considered Hollywood-standard in a lot of ways (we’ve seen PUH-LENTY of black sequined dresses with tuxedo jackets over them in the last year), but the footwear choice brilliantly recasts the whole look as something youthful, cheeky, and low-key in attitude despite all the glitter and finery.

This one’s a bit harder to love. From the front, it’s all good – or mostly good, anyway. We’re not entirely sure those fierce booties are right for that skirt shape and length. But that would be a minor complaint compared to the attack of fabric happening at her back. She looks like she’s toting around a sleeping bag for later.
