Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Shares Her Fabulous Style On Vogue UK's 'Today I'm Wearing' Series

For the month of March, Vogue UK partnered with Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to highlight her lust-worthy fashion choices on their Today I'm Wearing series....and let me tell you, she KILLED it. Let's take a look at some of my favorite outfits from her daily looks.

'I am wearing a Stella Jean dress. It reminds me of a dress my mother wore often when I was growing up. My shoes are Sophia Webster - I am always grateful for beautiful heels that are below 4 inches. My belt is from Target. My headwrap is an ankara fabric from Nsukka market.'

'This wrapper and top are by Nigerian designer Itunu. My brother says my Zara shoes remind him of Cinderella, which might be significant, the shoes being the only thing I find tolerable about the Cinderalla story. My bag is Chloe.'

'I love the comfort and grace of jumpsuits, although I realize they can be an acquired taste. (A dear friend often asks why I like going out in pyjamas!) My jumpsuit is See By Chloe, shoes are Zara and I got my handbag from Piperlime.'

'I bought this fabric from Balogun market and wanted it to be cut in a way that emphasized the boldness of the print. I designed it and my tailor Samson did the hard work - with quite a few amendments because he didn't understand why I wanted such an obvious collar! My bag is by Nigerian designer, Zashadu. My shoes are from Sophia Webster.'

'To speak at the Emirates Festival of Literature in Dubai, I am wearing a BCBG Max Azria top and a Jonathan Saunders skirt. My gloriously impractical shoes are by Nicholas Kirkwood.'

'When I first saw this fabric in Lagos' Balogun market, I fell in love. I designed the jumpsuit, and my superbly-talented tailor Razak made it. My shoes are Kathryn Amberleigh. My bag is ZAC Zac Posen and I got my belt from Target.'

 Beauty and brains? I am sold! I can't get enough of this fabulous tastemaker's clothing choices. You can check out the rest of her daily looks here

And if you can't get enough of her like me, you will be pleased to know that the The New Yorker just published a new short story by the literary darling in their latest issue. I will be picking an issue this week thank you very much. Entitled "Apollo", the story follows Okenwa, a young man who visits his elderly parents, only to find the way he relates to them has changed dramatically. Sounds interesting!
