 Adepero Oduye is constantly a lovely sight on the red carpet, often channeling her inner African woman with a use of African prints, most especially the Ankara fabric. Also to be noted is the delicate way she handles her natural hair, always seemingly packed in a neat bun, plus she is never seen without her full dashing smile.
