These looks prove Ayo Edebiri is fashion’s new “It” girl

If you haven’t joined the Ayo Edebiri fan club, now is the best time because her stocks are up! Apart from her undeniable talent, which has earned her Golden Globes, Critic’s Choice, and Emmy awards, all in one week, this American-Nigerian actress, writer, comedian, and budding fashion icon is your ultimate superstar. Ayo keeps us wanting more on and off the screen. 

Renowned for her exceptional performances in The Bear, Bottoms, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse, Big Mouth, and Black Mirror, amongst others, Ayo is leaving an indelible mark in Hollywood and our hearts. Her career and style have had a sky-rocketing launch, making her one of the most talked about Hollywood stars in the past few weeks. 

Every time I see Ayo Edebiri on the red carpet, I audibly gasp. There is an individuality to her style that projects her personality- quirky, fun, and hilarious. This individuality is evident in all her fashion season looks and red-carpet ensembles. Each outfit is a delightful stray from the norm- always intriguing, sparking conversations, and always on the theme. 

Our top five Ayo Edebiri looks so far

We understand that simply saying Ayo is a fashion icon doesn’t quite do justice, so we’re going to prove it to you. When my editor limited me to just five looks, I couldn’t help but give her a playful side-eye. Can you blame me? I’m an unabashed admirer of my favourites, and Ayo has quickly climbed to the top of that list.

Ayo is constantly on the best-dressed lists, and this gives a special nod to her stylists, Danielle Goldberg and Laura Sophie Cox. Danielle is a seasoned fashion stylist who works her magic on Greta Lee, Kaia Gerber (also featured in “Bottoms”), and Olivia Rodrigo. Laura is a British celebrity and stylist whose client list includes Emma Watson, Olivia Rodrigo, and Natalia Reyes. Ayo and her stylists have proven to be a power trio in fashion. Here are our top 5 Ayo Edebiri red carpet looks:

  • Emmys:

    At the 2024 Emmys on January 15, Edebiri stunned in a custom strapless Louis Vuitton piece. The black 3D pleated balloon-style leather dress was a statement piece that got people talking. She completed the outfit with Brilliant Earth diamond studs, a tennis necklace, an emerald-shaped diamond eternity ring, and black heel sandals. The look earned Ayo a top spot as one of the best-dressed of the night.

  • Critics Choice:

    Ayo Edebiri had an outstanding moment at the 2023 Critics Choice Awards in a Thom Browne monochrome ensemble. The star showed up in a cropped mini-skirt suit with a cascading cape paired with a sheer white shirt and velvet wine corset. She nailed the retro-edgy look with her black net-striped socks on Mary Jane pumps. The layered styling gives a playful twist on classic suits, and I call it a daring and successful execution.

  • BAFTAs:

    The 2024 BAFTAs witnessed Ayo’s stylish presence in a mesmerising Mel-draped dress from Puppets and Puppets. The semi-sheer sleeveless dress in floral velvet and an asymmetrical hem stole the spotlight at the event. With a hip drape detail, high neck, side slit, and low back, the intriguing style brings a sophisticated and dramatic style to the BAFTAs.

  • Golden Globes:

    In the spirit of Ayo winning Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series award at this year’s Golden Globe, let’s throw it back to her 2023 Golden Globes outfit. She wore a Rosie Assoulin two-piece set featuring a structured crop top and ball skirt in pastel blue and added beige-coloured gloves to the outfit for some drama. She also accessorised with Brilliant Earth’s Alessandra lab diamond earrings and Harvest diamond rings. Walking around with over five carats of diamonds compliments Ayo’s star power, and we’re not jealous at all. I love that this outfit was risky and different, a beautiful vision that gave us a topic for days.

  • Glamour Awards: At the 2023 Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards, Ayo Edebiri opted for a structured, orange mini Prada dress. It is an outfit she can pull from her wardrobe when she wants a cute look. Paired with black pumps and long curly hair, it was just the simple, true-to-theme dress we needed to see.

Extra- Just because this look is fun!

Not one to shy away from bold outfits, Ayo appeared on the Time 100 red carpet in a Loewe white draped dress. Adorned with ceramic viscose red balloons on her shoulder, torso, and hips, it was an iconic and fun look. Her natural bun, clean makeup, and a small stud earring complemented her interesting, artsy, and sophisticated look.
