The British screenwriter Michaela Coel is forever known as the attention-drawer for her trendy fashion, a force to be reckoned with.
While Coel is best known for her roles in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Chewing Gum, she has always impressed us with her bold fashion choices. The 2023 Met Gala has named Coel as one of its co-chairs, and the event’s subject, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” will pay tribute to the late designer’s work with Chanel, his eponymous label, and beyond.
Amazing Fashion Moments Of Michaela Coel
Coel understands how to command attention on the red carpet, as seen by her appearance at the Moet & Chandan Holiday Season Celebration in December 2022, when she wore an ab-baring design by Balmain that resembled a Roman toga.
Michaela Coel‘s art emphasizes individualism as well as expressing oneself openly via apparel. I May Destroy You, her limited series, launched on HBO Max in June 2020, and it follows Coel’s Arabella as she battles to move on after being drugged and raped, inspired by her own sexual assault experience.
The BAFTA nominee spoke in an interview about sharing personal moments. She explained that being transparent about her feelings had been the key to her success, and she encouraged others to do the same, as she did not believe it had harmed her career. According to Michaela Coel, honesty and compassion are what lead to better relationships and better work.
“Being transparent about my feelings has been the key to my success. I don’t feel it’s damaged my career in any way, so that’s what I encourage others to do. I think being honest and compassionate is what leads to better relationships, and better work.”
Additionally, Michaela Coel is recognized as a pioneer in her industry. She said that when she was growing up, she never saw a picture of a Black woman in a director’s chair. She did not know it was something they could do, so she did not even aspire to it. Instead, she stumbled into her current position.
“It’s ‘seeing to believe.’ When I was growing up, I never saw a picture of a Black woman sitting in a director’s chair. I didn’t know that was something we could do, so it almost wasn’t something that I wished for. I just kind of stumbled here.”
