On February 21st, actress Yara Shahidi attended the Vanity Fair and L’Oreal Paris Toast to Young Hollywood hosted by Dakota Johnson and Krista Smith at Delilah in West Hollywood. Known for her every changing sense of style, the young starlet looked casual sporting Chanel as she channeled the ambiance of the night.
Recently the seventeen-year-old Black-ish star sat down with The Hollywood Reporter’s Pret-a-Reporter to talk about everything from working with Beyonce on her new line for Ivy Park to the intersection of fashion and activism.
It is no secret that the young starlet is passionate about things such as celebrating independence, confidence, and finding strength in women’s rights-all themes which appear in Beyonce’s short film for her line. It is not everyday that teenagers speak out against controversial policies that adversely affect others, yet, Shahidi has decided to use her platform as a means of educating and advocating for the masses with nothing less than grace and style.
