With her award-winning acting skills, it’s hard to believe Ayo Edebiri has only been behind the camera for a few years now — but wow, what a few years it’s been. Kicking off her career as a writer and comedian, the 28-year-old landed her breakout role as Sydney Adamu in FX’s comedy-drama The Bear. And when the Boston native isn’t on-screen yelling ‘Yes, chef!’ to Jeremy Allen White or accepting accolades, Edebiri is creating buzz for her killer style. Never one to shy away from a bold look, the actor is on every fashion person’s radar right now, and with good reason.
The NYU grad started working with revered stylist Danielle Goldberg, who is also behind Greta Lee, Kaia Gerber, and Olivia Rodrigo’s incredible fashion moments. And this award show season, the duo has been unstoppable. Perhaps you saw Edebiri’s fire-engine red custom Prada number for the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards? Or how about the slouchy white suit from The Row she wore at the 29th Annual Critics Choice Awards? Edebiri’s custom Louis Vuitton leather dress for the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards was a scene-stealer, as well.
