The Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala was an opulent and luxurious occasion as celebrities and public figures showed up decked to perfection in exciting interpretations of the “Gilded Glamour” theme.
Her stylist, Thomas Carter Phillips, dissected the look on his Instagram by saying:
Danai carries a traditional African fly whisk for the occasion. Fly whisks appear in traditional regales of monarchs and nobility on the African continent. It was important to her and Head of State designer Taofeek Abijako to highlight the culture of their shared African heritage. It was an immense pleasure to create this look with them.
The actor and humanitarian’s glam was dreamy and dewy, featuring soft brows, lush lashes, perfectly polished skin and gorgeous bold lips. With an extra touch of class, she paired her look with a diamond bandeau tiara and accessories from Fred Leighton Jewels and Roger Vivier, plus a luscious afro-updo styled by Larry Sims.
