Stye File: Danai Gurira at the Ebony Power 100 Gala and the BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Smithsonian Screening

Posted on October 31, 2022

Lupita Nyong’o wasn’t the only Wakanda Forever cast member doing double duty this weekend. Her co-star Danai Gurira joined her for the Ebony Power 100 Gala and the Smithsonian screening, working two distinctly retro looks to perfection.

It’s giving ’60s soul chanteuse and we love that for her. Have we suddenly decided, after years of saying otherwise, that we now love fringe? No, but even we can admit when something we hate is working really well. We think the simple pumps and the gorgeously original take on a ’60s coif is what elevates this for us. For her next trick, she time-traveled to the late ’80s.

It’s giving Grace Jones does Milli Vanilli and inexplicably, it works beautifully for her. The hair is fun and the jewelry is gorgeous. Those Schiaparelli toe shoes are a bit much, but they work well with the dress.
