Yara Shahidi arrived in Los Angeles for the premiere of “Extrapolations” taking a creatively minimalistic approach to red-carpet dressing.
For the premiere of her new television series, the actress wore a draped corset dress with a white bodice and a deconstructed beige skirt from Simkhai. The dress is called the Jones Draped Corset Dress, and was fashioned from a technical cocktail crepe, with a trench collar draping a poplin corset bodice. Shahidi coordinated the look with matte nude pointed-toe pumps.
The actress’ look was from Simkhai’s Spring 2023 collection. WWD characterized the collection as a robust assortment produced from a single material: amber.
To create her look for the premiere of her new series, Shahidi worked with her go-to celebrity stylist, Jason Bolden. Bolden Taraji P. Henson, Michael B. Jordan and Sabrina also work with Carpenter.
Designer Jonathan Simkhai recently changed his eponymous label from his full name to just his last name, debuting a rebranded collection during New York Fashion Week in February. Despite the name change, Simkhai stuck to its brand ethos, with WWD stating that it offered re-worked classics and added hard and soft lines.
In addition to his role in “Extrapolations”, Shahidi stars in the “Black-ish” spin-off “Grown-ish”. In January, the show was renewed for a sixth season. Shahidi will also star as Tinkerbell in the Peter Pan remake “Peter Pan and Wendy”. The film will premiere on April 28 on Disney Plus.
“Extrapolations” is a new anthology drama series created by Scott Z. Burns for Apple TV+. The series explores the effects of climate change through a variety of perspectives through interconnected stories. The series stars Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, Kit Harington, Eiza Gonzalez, Chan, Yara Shahidi, and Edward Norton. The show premiered on the streaming service on Friday.
