Last Saturday, 19th October 2013, one of my favourite writers, the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was at the 57th BFI London Film Festival- for the English premiere of ‘Half of A Yellow Sun’, a movie adapted by Biyi Bandele from her awesome bestselling novel, of the same title!
I’ve been a silent admirer of threaded hairstyles (what is called in these South Western parts as Irun Kiko) since I saw these photos from a shoot by Yvonne Vixen Ekwere last year. You can go see them here.
So imagine my surprise and delight to see Chimamanda on the red carpet with thread! Maybe not so very surprised because duh, it’s Chimamanda. I don’t think I could possibly love this woman any more.
I think she’s working it! I think the hair belongs on the red carpet alongside everything she’s wearing. Love it!
Over to you guys. What are your thoughts?
