Danai Gurira has been living “the cut life” for quite some time, but her bald head is another level of fabulous. Earlier this week, the actress and playwright stepped out in a Rosie Assoulin Resort 2017 dress for the NYU Tisch School of the Arts Gala.
She and Moonlight actor Andre Holland were on hand to accept the Big Apple Award for Artistic Achievement. Fun fact: both graduated from the arts school in 2004 and 2006, respectively.
Besides the fact that this multicolored frock perfectly showcased her enviable figure, we’re reeling over the Walking Dead actress’ shaved head, a look we’ll see even more of in the highly anticipated Black Panther flick.
