Yara Shahidi rocks a Custom Dior while graduating from Harvard

Yara Shahidi has shown that nothing can stop her when she sets her mind to something. From her acting career in Hollywood to studying for her four-year bachelor’s degree at Harvard University is no small feat.

The Black-ish and Grown-ish actress attended the university’s departments of Social Studies and African American universities, and spent four years (plus a gap year) concentrating on “black political thinking in a neocolonial landscape.”

And now, after completing her 136-page thesis, The Young Actress is celebrating her official graduation.

“It’s unreal to finally reach this important milestone… I’ve known since I was four that I wanted to go to university. When I was 17 I knew exactly what I wanted to study, so to see that become a reality, a goal has been achieved.’

She tells Vogue

For her graduation, Yara wore a tailored Dior outfit.

“Rather than leaning on what I thought other people would wear because of tradition or heritage, I wanted to honor what I like and what I feel represents who I am,” Shahidi says. “The idea is inspired by a classic Dior silhouette and a classic Yara silhouette.” She chose a custom two-piece Dior costume — styled by Jason Bolden — in crimson, one of Harvard’s school colors. “We decided to join the school spirit by using crimson suits,” Shahidi says. “I wanted to make sure the look didn’t feel too formal, but leaned in that this is a joyous occasion — something that felt vibrant and bright.”
