The Walking Dead and Black Panther star Danai Gurira turns heads on the 2018 Oscars red carpet with her gorgeous gown and unique hairpiece.
Danai Gurira stunned on the red carpet at the 2018 Oscars. Gurira attended the Academy Awards along with several members of the Black Panther cast. While everyone looked amazing, Gurira’s look was elegant and fashion forward.
While Black Panther wasn’t nominated for any awards (the film wasn’t eligible for the 2018 ceremony but will be eligible for the 2019 awards) the cast turned out to celebrate their movie powering past half a billion dollars at the domestic box office over the weekend. The film’s massive success, along with that of Wonder Woman in 2017, has left an indelible mark on the superhero movie landscape. Gurira’s Okoye, leader of the Dora Milaje assigned to protect the king of Wakanda, garnered lots of praise and made Gurira one of the movie’s standout characters.
Take a look at Gurira’s gorgeous red carpet look:
Fans of The Walking Dead already knew that Danai Gurira is a powerhouse in the role of Michonne. Incredible fighting skills, along with vast knowledge of fighting with swords, are traits that both Michonne and Okoye share. Given her two ass-kicking roles, it’s fun seeing Gurira all dressed up at the Oscars.

Since this is an Oscars fashion post, we have to mention that Gurira’s light pink dress was designed by Gabriela Heast with Sergio Rossi shoes. Her jewelry was by Messika and her clutch came from Roger Vivier.
Gurira’s multifaceted career was already on fire before Black Panther, and now she’s in demand more than ever so we can expect to see more red carpet appearances in her future.
