In a world where braids are still viewed as an "inappropriate" hairstyle, we still get excited whenever we see influential people wear them proudly.

There are few things we know to be true about Sanaa Lathan and one is that she is drop dead gorgeous. The Shots Fired actress has been gifting us with movie classics (Love & Basketball, The Best Man) for years, all while serving the type of off-duty looks that leave us wondering if she's actually aged.

We're convinced she hasn't. And if you need further proof, please take a moment to follow her on Instagram. Lathan's latest selfie shows off her newest 'do; a set of cornrows that are styled in varying directions, and accessorized with gold charms.
