This past weekend, Skai Jackson attended the 18th Annual DesignCare Gala in Pacific Palisades, California. The young actress walked the red carpet in a Jay Godrey jumpsuit paired with Ruthie Davis Shoes.
Meanwhile, Marvel Comics has announced that the new Iron Man is going to be a 15-year-old girl by the name of Riri Williams. Mike Deodato Jr., the co-creator of the series, says that Skai Jackson is the inspiration behind the new superhero.
“Riri Williams was based on the beautiful young actress @skaijackson,” he wrote on Twitter earlier this week.
“Thank you @mikedeodato ! I am so honored that I was your inspiration. I’m truly honored,” Skai responded on Instagram. “Young black girls can be superheroes too! #blackgirlmagic #skaisthelimit #ririwilliams #ironman #marvel.”
