snapshot-harpers-bazaar-women-who-dare-uzo-adubaNigerian Hollywood actress Uzo Aduba had a breakthrough year with her stellar performance in Netflix series ‘Orange Is the New Black’ as a slightly psychotic character Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren.

Harper’s Bazaar magazine is recognizing Uzo Aduba as one of the women featured in their 2014 “Women Who Dare” list. She is described as ‘the actress with eyes wide open’.

You can read her full feature here on Harper’s Bazaar.

Photographed by Albert Watson, Uzo Aduba is styled in a black floor-length Carolina Herrera dress accessorized with a Stephen Webster pendant.


In the feature, Uzo Aduba describes her sojourn into Hollywood as daring and taking all risks and chances. It took me a long time to arrive at that—you know, from my gap teeth to my name. I’m realizing, You don’t need to change anything about yourself. This is who you are, and it’s okay. That’s daring.

Also featured on the list are Jessica Alba, Chelsea Clinton, Stella McCartney, Chloe Sevigny, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Christy Turlington, Kristen Gillibrand and 13-year-old Mo’ne Davis.

      Isn’t it such an irony how the world defines beauty depending on what part of that world one finds oneself at any point in time? Where Uzo’s parents originally hailed from (Eastern Nigeria’s Igboland, to be exact) a frontal gap tooth is actually supposed to be one of the epitomes of a lady’s beauty. It was so desirable that some who naturally didn’t have it actually went out of their way to artificial get through local dentists. Interesting that this Igbo girl in the US Uzo who was born with it has to convince herself that with it she was taking a risk and a chance.

    She doesn’t look bad at all, and i am glad she is standing by all the decisions she has taken. Just hoping that this Hollywood doesn’t make her change, cos we have seen celebrities, A and D list included, change before our eyes even after the talks of maintaining their beauty and standing for what they believe.
