Now, Yara Shahidi is giving her own crush-worthy take on the look. The actress is known for rocking architectural ‘dos that could be their own works of art — and her Primetime Emmys looks was no exception.

And, let’s not forget about the her cornrows, which followed the coiled motif with twisted ends.
