Graduation season has arrived. And it’s Yara Shahidi’s turn to shine. On Tuesday, the “Grown-ish” actress took to Instagram to share a photo of herself as she prepares to graduate from Harvard University.
“Celebrating all week, T minus one day away from graduation,” she wrote under the upload.
Fans of the young star who grew up on TV screens can’t believe she’s grown up now. Shahidi’s new post was immediately met with tons of congratulatory comments from celebrities like Lena Waithe, Viola Davis, Ryan Destiny, Yvonne Orji, Octavia Spencer and many more. In the photo, the “Black-ish” alum poses alongside her mother Keri Shahidi in a black satin graduation dress. Keri pulled out a fitting ensemble to start the moment, a long sleeve maxi dress with black leather boots.
As for shoes, Shahidi slipped into a luxury shoe style – J’Adior Slingback Pump. The slingback pump is a perfect example of Dior’s know-how. Made in the Italian workshops of Christian Dior, the silhouette is distinguished by a black technical fabric. The two-tone ‘J’ADIOR’ embroidered ribbon is embellished with a flat bow and the 10 cm comma heel offers the final touch of elegance for an evening look. Shahidi is a global ambassador for women’s fashion and cosmetics for the French brand.
Shahidi is a fashion icon in her own right. The ‘Paw Patrol’ star has a personal aesthetic that includes bold colors, loud patterns, streetwear staples and monochrome tracksuits. Working closely with her stylist Jason Bolden, Shahidi is never afraid to try the trends. For shoes, she favors embellished sandals, platform silhouettes and shiny pumps. Along with her eclectic style, the artist has made a name for herself in the fashion industry by collaborating with Adidas.
