Attending her first NAACP Image Awards last weekend, Flaviana Matata made sure she made a lasting impression in an ultra-feminine Zuhair Murad Spring/Summer 2018 midi dress which complimented her slender frame. Since most guests who walked the red carpet at the event opted for floor-length gowns but Flaviana’s short dress choice was a breath of fresh air.

The eclectic designs on the turquoise dress caught everyone’s attention; the compelling embroidery on the structured lace dress and playful ruffles on the sleeves made the dress a masterpiece. Adding more spice to her ensemble, she added a pair of bright blue pumps.

The Tanzanian model who spoke about how her style is a reflection of who she is in a recent ELLE feature defied all beauty stereotypes with her natural low-cut hairstyle parted at the side. Keeping the entire look sublime, Mali Magic did subtle makeup with a splash of bright red lips to complete the look.
