Wakanda Forever!: Danai Gurira Appears On The Oscars Red Carpet Rocking A Daring Head Stamp

Danai Gurira rocks a daring head stamp on the Oscars red carpet. Wakanda forever!

Just when we thought the Oscars red carpet would be a safe one, Black Panther’s Danai Gurira popped up—and showed out in straight-off-the-runway Gabriela Hearst gown. 

Despite her initial hesitation to shave her head for her standout role as Okoye (a leader of Dora Milaje, an all-female Wakanda Special Forces unit), she’s owning her new look.

"Like I was the first one to get my head shaved and in theory it sounded amazing. Then the day came and we’re doing it today and I was like, 'Today?' Then it happened. Then you go into the restroom to wash your hands, and you look up and you’re like, 'What the?' So that took a few days, and then all the girls start coming in. We’d all been bald'ed, one by one. Everybody had their caps on. Then the pride started to grow," she previously shared.

Like her character, Danai was not down for embracing European beauty standards and wearing a wig for film’s biggest night.

We couldn’t help but stare at her stunning fresh fade accented with silver hair spray slayed by Vernon Scott. Wakanda Forever!

This might just be the best beauty look of the night—what do y'all think? Drop us a line in the comments below.
