Melanin Popping! Chimamanda Adichie featured in Vanity Fair’s March Issue as one of the “Style Stars Set to Rule 2017”



From Jaden Smith to Kirsten Dunst to Nigeria’s very own Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Vanity Fair magazine features eight very different artists who are “the Style Stars Set to Rule 2017”.

They are photographed by Patrick Demarchelier as he captures the panache that matches their achievements.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s style is described as bold and beautiful.

According to Vanity Fair:

Nigerian novelist and MacArthur Fellow Adichie is known for her provocative takes on gender and class. Her TEDx talk “We Should All Be Feminists” has achieved special pop-culture prominence: Beyoncé sampled lines in her 2013 song “Flawless,” and a model wearing a T-shirt with the speech’s title walked the runway at Dior’s spring 2017 show.

    She’s more beautiful than this picture the photographer didn’t try. The angle and lightening are boring….but yes she’s a unique trend setter.

    I actually love this picture… she has such a disarming smile. I agree with them that her style is bold, beautiful and unique.

    The grey background is in sharp contrast with her hair color and style. Her skin is golden, and that bright outfit makes this picture gorgeous
