Lupita Nyong’o is a red carpet diva who brings flair, beauty, and natural style to all the event she attends. Couple that with her amazing acting skills and you see why she’s always on the list of best dressed for any Hollywood event.

Last night at the 2016 Tony Awards Lupita was amongst the massive rose bloomed red carpet and was just as lovely in her floral print BOSS gown. What gave her look simple elegance was her heightened TWA (teeny weeny Afro) that was pushed up and out and sat like a crown upon the beautiful actress’ head.

The TWA is a staple in the natural hair community and not just for new naturals as many naturals opt for rocking shorter tresses. Shaved sides, tapered cuts, and low fades are growing in popularity among black naturals. Lupita always dazzles with her hairstyle choices and we love how she opts for textured looks full of sophistication that never misses a beat. Her textured crown amongst the floral backdrop made mouths gape and many women wonder if this is the time for a BC with a tapered cut to rock this summer. This look is a summer and red carpet favorite. 

Who’s ready to rock a TWA?
