6 Times Natural Hair Reigned Supreme On Red Carpets (So Far) This Year
I don't know about y'all, but I still haven't come down from the high of seeing Zendaya's stop-you-in-your-scroll Met Gala fro from earlier this month. I mean, her parrot-grazed Dolce & Gabbana number was stellar, too; but that hair though. I don't care what you say, she tied with Rihanna for best dressed of the night, IMO.
After soaking in all the glory that night, I started pondering on the increasing occurrence of red carpet natural hair, knock-you-off-your-feet moments. As someone who can barely recall seeing such instances of coil-embracing on red carpets growing up, it's truly refreshing and encouraging. And you'd think that with me having embraced my natural hair for a while now, I wouldn't get as surprised as I do, but it truly never ceases to amaze me.
So, I'm going to go ahead and leave these instances of beautifully textured red carpet moments for you to gawk at in virtual unison with me:
