I Think This Star Has the Most Exciting Style in Hollywood Right Now
As one of the most prominent voices of Gen Z, Yara Shahidi’s incredible style is entirely connected to her political identity. Everything she wears is equal parts fabulous as it is significant. “Wearing what you want is a powerful political statement,” she told us earlier this year. “Fashion is a reclamation of identity.”
On top of her own outspoken political activism, she’s a Chanel girl; she’s starring one of the summer’s major romantic films, The Sun Is Also a Star; and, of course, she’s the lead on Grown-ish, the spin-off of Black-ish, where we first came to know her. There’s simply nothing she can’t do.
We’ve had our eye on her style for the past few years, but recently we’ve been obsessed with every outfit she wears. Working closely with her stylist, Jason Bolden, she breezily dons loud patterns, colours and silhouettes. Shahidi is unafraid to try out trends straight from the runway and will often wear an OTT piece with simple accessories.
With each uniquely inspiring look, we’ve fallen in love with the way she pulls off creative styling tricks. In a similar way, she has become a positive political voice for her generation. By guiding and not preaching, Yara is leading us by example into a way of using fashion as an authentic reflection of one’s personal beliefs.
Looking through some of her most recent outfits, we’ve noticed four main pillars of her signature style. Keep scrolling to see some of our favourite Yara Shahidi looks.
