She’s still sporting a shaved head for her role as Okoye in the Marvel film Black Panther.
And Danai Gurira looked fabulous as she showed off her stellar style in a multi-colored floor length skirt and shirt combo as she walked the red carpet for the Tisch School of the Arts Gala in New York City on Monday.
The Walking Dead actress, 39, showed off her incredible figure in the high-waisted paneled skirt that fell down to her ankles.

She completed the outfit with a matching top that also featured the multi-colored striped pattern.
The cut of the top showed off the actresses sculpted decolletage and she opted for very few accessories.
The Black Panther star carried a Mark Cross Grace Small Box in her left hand as she smiled on the red carpet.
To complete her look, the talented actress wore metallic silver shoes that perfectly complemented her cool outfit.

Be kaleidoscopically colourful like Danai in this Rosie Assoulin skirt
Maybe you haven’t heard of Rosie Assoulin yet but you’ve definitely been influenced by her style. Worn any ruffles lately? Pleats? Asymmetric skirts? Cropped trousers? The New York designer is one of the driving forces behind fashion’s new deconstructed silhouette.
Walking Dead star Danai Gurira opted for this multicoloured ensemble on the red carpet – a prime example of Assoulin’s whimsical design flourishes. We love how Danai has paired this eye-catching two-piece with a retro bag and silver heels.
The skirt, from the spring/summer collection, is available to buy at Farfetch now. You can complete the look with the matching halterneck top – strangely reminiscent of the NBC logo. For cheaper (but no less rainbow-tastic) versions, check out our bright and zingy bounty from Topshop, ASOS, Zara and Farfetch.

Danai, who graduated from Tisch in 2004 and Moonlight actor André Holland (’06) were both recognized at the gala for their ‘extraordinary’ talent.
Looking good: The actress has always sported fairly short hair, but not completely bald like the character (pictured in 2013)
Danai, who sports dreadlocks for her role on The Walking Dead, shaved her head back in January for her role in Marvel’s Black Panther.
Danai’s character Okoye was bald in the comic series, so the actress shaved her head to remain true to the character.
Okoye is the leader of the Dora Milaje, a rival tribe who serves as Black Panther’s personal guard and ceremonial wives-in-training.
Lupita Nyong’o also appears in the film as Nakia, another member of the Dora Milaje.
The titular character will be portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, who will play Marvel’s first black superhero.
In the film – The king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) returns home but finds his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary in a conflict that has global consequences.
Black Panther is is currently filming and set to hit theaters next year on February 16, 2018.
