Amanda Gorman Wowed at the Inauguration in a Prada Headband

Amanda Gorman was hashtag hair goals when she wore a bold Prada headband for the presidential inauguration. Find out how to get her look.

A young African American woman stepped onto the world stage looking every inch the superstar in a canary yellow coat and her natural hairstyle adorned with a bright red Prada headband. American poet and activist Amanda Gorman made history as the youngest poet ever to perform at a presidential inauguration. The 22-year-old poet delivered a powerful reading at the inauguration of Joe Biden and looked flawless doing it.

Inspiring in more ways than one, her look on this day got social media buzzing, alongside Michelle Obama’s stunning monochrome look and Farrah Fawcett flicks. Amanda’s twisted updo was set off with an eye-catching padded headband by Prada (£265). The must-have accessory was paired with a smart yellow coat, also by Prada. She was also spotted wearing a red jewelled face covering which made the matching combo a beautiful addition to her outfit. Amanda has shown us how accessorises are a great way to liven up your hairstyle, so here is a guide on how to achieve this look yourself.
