Walking Dead and Black Panther actress Danai Gurira made a huge impression on the red carpet at this year’s Oscars, for both her dress and her hairstyle.

Gurira wore a blush-pink strapless gown by Gabriela Hearst last Sunday. The silk dress features a rounded neckline and bare back, but flows from the lower back with a long train.

Gurira complimented her dress with simple, yet elegant makeup. She was seen on the red carpet with a smokey cat-eye with a dark burgundy lip color.

Her hairstylist, Vernon Scott, who has worked with other celebrities like Amber Rose, Zayn Malik and Kanye West, made sure that she would stand out on Oscar night.
