Ebonee’s gorgeous gown made her first Oscar experience one to remember, as she took to Instagram to ask her fans what they thought of her appearance. Davis made sure she embraced her natural hair in an elegant up-do that showcased her beautiful coils adorning her head like a crown. This may have been her first Oscar appearance but this definitely won’t be the last time we see this rising model at an Oscar event.

A renaissance woman at heart, Koshie Mills says; “I created the International Women of Power Luncheon to give a platform to celebrate the women in our community who are contributing their talents greatly to the world. I wanted to create a culturally enriched authentic experience with a female aesthetic, where a mosaic of women from the continent and the diaspora can converge, bond, share, uplift, empower and embrace each others diverse experiences in one room. This is an opportunity for everyone looking at Africa and its Diaspora to see how African women are not only beautiful, regal, intelligent, powerful, resourceful and resilient, we are owning our own narrative and reclaiming our Queendom for the world to see. When we come together unapologetically conspicuous in exhibiting pride in our heritage, unify and celebrate one another, we are unmatched and unstoppable.
