If you made the very intelligent decision to go see the film Pariah this past year (or in this early new year), then I’m sure you’ve seen Adepero Oduye’s face before. She actually plays the main character, Alike, who struggles with her identity as a lesbian. While her character in the film prefers fitted caps and baggy jeans, in real life, Adepero clearly likes to show out on the red carpet (make that a purple, and a blue and white carpet…). Check out her looks from this past weekend.
On Saturday, Oduye hit up the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. in this eclectic pantsuit in a gorgeous African print. The jacket had a very unique cut since it skipped buttons for a flowing, open bottom, and the pants seemed to be of the skinny leg, cigarette pant persuasion. She topped the vibrant blue, gold and white printed ensemble off with a loose yellow top and bronze colored, strappy, open-toe heels. Her natural hair was braided at the crown, and she kept both her makeup and jewelry to a minimum.
