Kawennáhere has had a passion for acting since she was a child, with her role as Aila in 2013’s Rhymes For Young Ghouls being her breakout.
Since then, she’s appeared in several other TV shows and movies, including The Lie, The Order, and American Gods, and she also made her directorial debut with her short film Stolen in 2015. Still, there’s so much more to know about Kawennáhere. Keep reading to find out ahead.
Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs has our full attention with her latest role as Elora Danan on FX’s Reservation Dogs. Created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, the series follows a group of four Indigenous teens living in rural Oklahoma with dreams of a better life in California.
While the show is making history as the first TV series to feature an all-Indigenous team of writers, directors, and series regulars, it certainly isn’t the first time Kawennáhere has graced our screens.
Yara Shahidi Was a Whole Work of Art in a Dior Sweater Vest at New York Fashion Week
If you made your way through the Brooklyn Museum during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 8, you might have come across lavish Dior designs, paintings that date back centuries, and even Yara Shahidi looking like a work of art.
Like a cross between 1921 and 2021, Yara attended The Exhibition Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams on Wednesday while wearing a Dior Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2022 black mohair houndstooth sweater, a flannel skirt with a high waistline, and Dior heeled sandals. “Don’t touch the art,” she captioned a post on Instagram, and we don’t need to be told twice.
The exhibit, curated by Florence Müller and Matthew Yokobosky features never-before-seen silhouettes marking 70 years of Christian Dior’s fashion impact, but we couldn’t take our eyes off of Yara’s shimmering sweater vest. Reminiscent of a starry night, the sweater is covered in constellations of glitter, pairing perfectly with the drama of her pleated skirt to create a look that’s so romantic it should be framed alongside all of the exhibit’s other beautiful designs. Admire the star’s elegant outfit ahead.
