Danai Gurira Gives LBD a Colorful Twist With Pink & Green Fuzzy Coat & Chain-Strap Sandals at Gotham Awards 2022

Danai Gurira put a trendy twist on a classic little black dress at the 2022 Gotham Awards in New York last night. The “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” actress posed for photos on the red carpet with her costar Lupita Nyong’o.

Gurira looked gorgeous at the annual event, arriving in a fuzzy green teddy coat that was decorated with a pink and black design. The “Walking Dead” star kept the outerwear draped on her shoulders, which helped to show off the black dress that she was wearing underneath. The top of the garment had contour boning details, while the bottom consisted of a fitted midi skirt.

To let her look do all of the talking, Gurira simply accessorized with small earrings and a diamond midi ring. For glam, the entertainer went with a soft smokey eye and pink pout.

When it came down to the shoes, Gurira completed her look with Versace’s Medusa Chain Metallic Sandals. Crafted from butter-soft golden nappa leather, the silhouette suspends eponymous pendants at the curb-chain ankle straps and sits perched atop a towering flared heel.

Strappy sandals are taking center stage right now as one of the popular shoe styles. With signature interlaced straps varying from barely-there to maximalist-like styles, lace-up sandals are the versatile shoe of the season.
