    I am in the fashion/beauty industry so this thread is right up my alley. She always looks hip yet refined at the same time. Truly elegant and original. Even as Michonne she is kinda stylish for the apocalypse. Pre-ZA she looked really cute in her cropped blouse and skirt with her dreads curled. And even now with not many options she always has a flair. Fly ass samurai style!

    I just love her style all around. Elegant, confident, sexy, and fun. Much like her.

    My mouth dropped open at the pink dress. No wonder they had to dress down Michonne during the party. If she came in looking like that...well, let's just say Judith would have to share her red cups.

    I really want her to get a cover shoot for a fashion magazines during season 7 promotion season. Like Elle would be perfect.

    I love those photos. She is amazing! She is the kind of woman who could
    make even a potato sack look good.

    From Vogue:

    Danai Gurira Has Lots of Talent, Great Style—And a Tony Nomination

    When the Tony Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, the sole woman included among the nominees for Best Play was Danai Gurira—the elegant Zimbabwean-American playwright and actress who has been quietly making waves in theater circles and beyond. Though known for her groundbreaking plays likeEclipsed and In the Continuum, she is likely far more recognizable to television fans for her role as fearless katana-wielding assassin Michonne on AMC’s smash-hit zombie series The Walking Dead. And while it’s more or less unheard of for an artist to command that type of impact across those genres, Gurira’s talents extend beyond both—specifically, her presence in the fashion arena.

    Gurira’s gifts are impossible to ignore; she is known for bringing a camera-ready elegance to every appearance, whether she’s sporting a white Cushnie et Ochsjumpsuit on the Black Girls Rock! red carpet or donning cobalt Altuzarra during previews of her latest play. Working with stylist Thomas Carter Phillips for important events, Gurira has crafted a wardrobe full of unexpected choices that signify the presence of her personal taste and ability to take risks—a welcome departure from the normal
    red carpet walker. It’s not too many who could pull off Schiaparelli Couture and Peter Copping’s latest for Oscar de la Renta with equal flair. Stepping into the Met Gala on Monday night clad in Giambattista Valli, Gurira projected a regal air that set her apart. With the Tonys on the horizon and her star on the rise, we can’t wait to see which thrilling designer creation she shows up in next.

    I was looking at those photos in the Vogue article, and yes that gold dress is nice.

    I love the blue, floaty, ethereal dress she wore at the Broadway premiere of Eclipsed. It's probably my favorite. That and the white jumpsuit she wore at BGR.

    I finally really got to see the full effect of this outfit.

    I thought the top was attached to the bottom as a one piece. But it's a cute little strapless cropped top. I love it!I love how Danai isn't afraid to show some skin, and when she does she still manages to look sexy, classy, and elegant.
