Last Sunday, the celebrities put on their best custom couture and borrowed gemstones and hit the red carpet for the 90th Academy Awards. Shockingly, almost everyone looked absolutely gorgeous. From Taraji P. Henson's sensual, gauzy black gown to Emily Blunt's ethereal silver creation, the award's show was a parade of stunning.
My immediate favorite and thus my selection for Women Crush Wednesday was the lovely and lethal combination of Black Panther's Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira. While Gurira rocked an understated blush dress and accessorized with diamonds and a soon-to-be-copied-everywhere silver hair tattoo; her friend Nyong'o opted for a glittering gold and black creation that was both her expected combination of daring and damn sexy. Her hair was inspired by traditional Rwandan hairstyles called Amasunzu, per Lupita's Instagram account.
These women didn't just look like snacks. They looked like a 12-course tasting menu of all your favorite things.
It's undeniable that Oscar-winner Lupita and Danai are two of the most stunning women in the world. But one of the most beautiful things about them is their enduring friendship that began in 2007 and has taken from to Gurira's Tony-nominated off-Broadway play, Eclipsed to starring in one of the biggest movies in cinematic history, and now the Oscars. Wakanda and best friends forever!
