If you haven’t noticed, we are low-key crushing on Chewing Gum star Michaela Coel’s badassness. From her epic hair game to daring fashion sense, the actress stays winning on the red carpet and her appearance at the BAFTA Television Awards this past Sunday was no exception.

The Ghanaian beauty wowed in an epic creation by none other than her mom (who she calls her “superhero”) that had us swooning. Paired with strappy metallic heels, the sleeveless graphic mini dress was a definite show-stopper.


This isn’t the first time Michaela has slayed the carpet in one of her mother’s creations. The beauty stunned just last month at the Olivier Awards in this custom hi-low black halter gown.

We’ve also seen her work a deep v-neck patchwork mini dress that is #summergoals personified.

I'm from Ghana . And of course, my mum made my dress ❤❤❤ ignore the tissue paper
