The Naturalistas definitely looked glam at the 2015 Oscars!
From Lupita Nyong’o‘s teeny weeny ‘fro to Solange Knowles‘ wavy strands, I just had to let you in on 5 of our favourite naturals who rocked the red carpet yesterday. By the way, have you seen all the Red Carpet Glam? Click Here if you haven’t!
1. Viola Davis – The Tapered ‘fro
She’s the woman who has been making headlines defending her “classic beauty” as a black leading lady in Hollywood.
The star of the hit series How To Get Away with Murder, Viola Davis, kept it traditional with her curls tapered and neat. I like how it drew all the attention to her face while still making a serious #TeamNatural statement.
2. Zendaya – Faux Locs
She may not be a naturalista, but the fact that Zendaya decided to rock the Academy Awards red carpet with faux locs landed her on this list. She has always been one to make bold statements on the red carpet and she definitely had heads turn with this look.
Her locs are bold, long and the highlights here and there added a little funk to her look.
3. Lupita Nyong’o – The Teeny Weeny ‘fro
We usually see Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o with added extensions to her natural hair, so I was glad to see her tone it down to something short & sweet.
Earlier on today BN Beauty had a feature on Lupita’s Oscar beauty look (click her if you missed it); and now I am happy to list her among one of the naturalistas spotted on the red carpet. With hair by Larry Sims, there is nothing I don’t love about her teeny weeny ‘fro.
It had textured curls raised to create a look that gave off a soft and cute finish.
4. Ava DuVernay – Top Knot Locs
Ava – the director of Selma, gave us locs to dream of. Her hair was styled in a topknot that looked intricate and simple at the same time.
I love how classic the look comes off; it gave way to her dazzling earrings and lovely bedazzled blue dress.
5. Solange Knowles – The Long Wavy Bob
Solange is without a doubt one of the many poster girls for natural hair. She loves to show it off and did so again at the 2015 Oscars. Naturslistas can easily recreate this look by blowing out your hair and getting the curls with flexi rods or twist outs – get creative with it!
The DJ, singer, fashionista and sister to Beyoncé paired her wavy bob with a stunning red lip and cat eyes. Simple & chic!
I love how more stars are rocking their natural hair to major events like the Oscars and the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party; like the long braids by Zoe Kravitz below. She let her strands sweep along her face with dark smokey eyes and a nude lip. So youthful!
Be sure to keep refreshing for more from the Vanity Fair After Party!
