Met Gala 2019: Lupita Nyong'o's afro pick hairstyle had a hidden meaning

Lupita Nyong’o's Met Gala 2019 hairstyle had a secret meaning, according to her hairstylist.

On the first Monday of May, the Met Gala delivers an array of red carpet looks that veer away from orthodox ballgowns and instead towards fun and experimental ensembles.

And the same can be said for the beauty looks, too.

A whole host of celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez and Ciara, interpreted this year’s theme – “Camp: Notes on Fashion” – through a string of show-stopping hair and makeup moments, but it was Nyong’o’s that made the biggest impact.

The Us actor enlisted the help of celebrity hairstylist Vernon Francois to create her look for the evening, resulting in a towering afro complete with a crown of five gilded afro picks.

But, aside from complementing her rainbow-inspired dress perfectly, the gold combs, which featured “Fight the Power” raised fists as handles, served another purpose.

Sharing a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram of how his team painted the afro picks, Francois wrote: “WOW. This is been quite an emotional experience for me over the past 48hrs.

“The raised fist logo represent unity, solidarity. Also known as Black Power. I will leave it there for now.

“Yes we hand spray painted them gold I will be hanging this up on my wall.”

In a separate Instagram post, Francois also revealed that the look was partly inspired by artist Lauren Kelley's self-portrait “Pickin'” (2007), which shows her wearing a crown of hair picks, and also former queen of France, Marie Antionette.

“Our goal is to continue to demonstrate the power of our hair texture that it is the most mouldable and luxurious hair texture there is,” he added.

Celebrity make-up artist Nick Barose finished Nyong’o’s look with glossy black lips, retraced extra-high, pencil thin eyebrows and applied metallic eyeshadow in bright pink and silver glitter.

The Black Panther actor wore a multi-coloured star-print dress that featured a sheer sparkly gown and exaggerated shoulders.

Afro picks

Give it to Colin Kaepernick. The man’s not only creating a conversation that exposes a healthy dose of America’s insecurities and frustrations, his Afro, which took center stage before and after the San Francisco 49ers’ preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sept. 1, was beyond impressive. Full blowout kit, a shine courtesy of Duke’s hair grease, you know, the whole nine yards. However, much like his stance toward the national anthem, Kaepernick’s decision to don perhaps black America’s most storied and political hairstyle is far from the first of its kind. The lineage is deep — both in and out of the sports world. Grab your Afro picks and take this ride through history. — Justin Tinsley

The legendary Diana Ross, pictured here in July 1975 in Los Angeles, in legendary stunt mode with perhaps the most perfect Afro in recorded history. Just look at it. I'd be willing to bet it's moisturized with the finest juices and berries Motown could buy. (Harry Langdon/Getty Images)There are certain people who are forbidden to ever cut their hair. Questlove, the legendary drummer of the legendary Roots crew and great person in general, falls under that umbrella. (Craig Barritt/Getty Images)Prince, pictured here at the Washington, D.C.'s, Warner Theater in June 2015, always struck me as the type of dude to keep an Afro pick on him at all times. The one with the Black Power fist, too. (Karrah Kobus/NPG Records via Getty Images)Do yourself a favor and search “Pam Grier Afro” on Google Images. In the long history of Afros in America, trust and believe no one made it look better than The Original Foxy Brown. (Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)If this photo of the Jackson Five doesn't make you want to play I Want You Back, Never Can Say Goodbye, Who’s Loving You or ABC, just know you are truly in my prayers. (Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)Before Colin Kaepernick, there stood another Afro-donning lightning rod in the NFL. Randy Gene Moss, flossing the 'fro and full grill, during a 31-17 wild card victory at Lambeau Field over the Green Bay Packers in 2005. Seeing as how we're co-workers now, however, my true feelings about Moss' actions toward the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving 1998 must remain dormant. (Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Between a grandfather obsessed with materialistic fantasies and women who didn’t want to date him, and a younger brother, Riley, who wanted nothing more than to live the thug life, it's a wonder this century's most fierce activist, Huey P. Freeman of The Boondocks, didn't lose his hair while trying to keep his house in order and change the world.You might be wondering why Angela Davis looks so ticked off in this photo. Simple. This was taken shortly after she was fired from UCLA as a philosophy professor as a result of her membership with the Communist Party of America. She later became a prominent member of the Black Panthers and landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Don’t trip, though. She beat all those charges and currently serves as an educator, writer and all-around dope activist. (Hulton Archive/Getty Images)Gil Scott Heron was “woke” long before it became cool to throw the term around in tweets and Instagram captions. (Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)Rumor has it a man once disrespected “Mean” Joe Greene’s Afro. Rumor has it that man hasn’t been seen since. That’s not really a rumor, but imagine how stressful it might have been to be Greene’s barber. (Bettmann/Getty Images)You right OG (original gangster) Bobby Ross made it. That Afro is undeniable. It’s glorious. The man painted bushes, mountains and rivers like nobody’s business.Thankfully, Blue Ivy wasn’t old enough to read some of the mean things people said about her hair when she was a baby. While her Afro history has been lengthy for someone not even old enough for kindergarten yet, Blue Ivy’s finest Afro moment came earlier this year in her mom Beyonce’s controversial smash single Formation.Since we’re on the topic of the Knowles family, the ringleader in the Afro division is Blue’s auntie. Solange has long been committed to that Afro life. Salute, Queen. (Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for Michael Kors)Ah, c’mon, man. This is Afro royalty (I mean, seriously, just look at that thing). Black history royalty. Hella dope nickname royalty. Mr. Steal Yo Mama and Grandma royalty. This is Julius Erving - Dr. J - we’re talking about here. Of course The Doctor is in the club. He helped create it. (Focus On Sport/Getty Images)Not to be confused with the Buffalo Bills great quarterback Jim Kelly. But this Kelly, seen here on the set of 1973’s Enter The Dragon, earns the prestigious honor of one of the greatest Afros because, well, c’mon. He also starred in Black Belt Jones, Black Samurai and Three The Hard Way. Kelly was also baseball legend Willie Mays’ second cousin and appeared alongside basketball great LeBron James in a very underrated 2004 Nike ad. An all-around pretty interesting dude, if we’re being honest. (Photo by Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)If you have to ask who these people are, I humbly request you turn your black card in, for you are now on a probationary period and the committee will decide your fate in a hearing during the historically black college homecoming season. Anyway, here we have the legendary cast of Good Times (R.I.P. James Evans). Count 'em up. That’s one ... two ... three ... four Afros in one picture. If that’s not peak blackness, then the criteria needs to be re-evaluated. (Photo by CBS Photo Archive/Getty Images)Aretha Franklin wore her do during the Afro explosion of the ’70s. So combine that with Respect, and Big Mama ’Retha wasn’t out here playing with y’all.Before the grown man salt-and-pepper low cut he has now (I can only hope to mimic that my 50s), my man, President Barack Obama - pictured on Feb. 5, 1990, after being named president of The Harvard Law Review – was no stranger to the 'fro. A mini-'fro, but an Afro nonetheless. (Photo by Lane Turner/The Boston Globe via Getty Images)The Rev. Jesse “Keep Hope Alive” Jackson and I haven’t seen eye to eye all the time. He went to North Carolina A&T. I went to Hampton. He’s an Omega. I made the right decision and went Alpha. But I’ve gotta give respect to ol’ Jesse, seen here on his march for jobs around the White House in 1975. The mustache/Afro combo in this picture would have been my vibe had I been around in the ’70s. (Photo by Buyenlarge/Getty Images)Hendrix — Jimi, not Future — made the Afro a definitive statement in rock. It wasn’t supposed to fit. But it did. (Photo by Mueller-Schneck/ullstein bild via Getty Images)Want to feel old for a second? This photo was taken March 7, 2001. There’s a generation of basketball fans, better yet, diehard Kobe fans, who has no memory of Afro-Kobe. (Photo by Vince Compagnone/Los Angeles Times via Getty Images)Don King, the most famous (or infamous, depending how you want to look at it) boxing promoter, always had a legendary Afro. That much can’t be disputed. It looked like a cross between being electrocuted and those vintage troll dolls.To be quite honest, I don’t know if Samuel L. Jackson’s super moist Afro was real or fake. It doesn’t much matter. Just know Pulp Fiction wouldn’t be nearly the film it has grown to become if he was rocking any other hairstyle.How Minnie Riperton hit that high note in 1975’s Loving You is still insane. R.I.P. to a legend. (Photo by Richard E. Aaron/Redferns)There was never a doubt The Artist Formerly Known As Lew Alcindor aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar aka perhaps the greatest of all time (GOAT) (if you’re in a debating mood) was down for the cause. So it made sense the architect behind The Sky Hook rocked the 'fro during the height of his playing days. (Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images)Sly Stone of Sly and the Family Stone is no longer rocking the 'fro full time. Sobering, I know. But best believe in his heyday, Sly’s Afro/sideburn combination competed with the absolute best of them. (Photo by Jay Dickman/CORBIS/Corbis via Getty Images)You never knew what you were going to get from Ben Wallace. Well, you knew you’d get dominant defense, but not a lot of offense. But the Virginia Union University alum’s hairstyles were pretty unpredictable. Some games he wore braids. Some he donned this rather immaculate Afro. Not for nothing, too, Big Ben was definitely rocking the 'fro the night of the “Malice At The Palace.” (Photo by Allen Einstein/NBAE via Getty Images)You have your Afro OGs (original gangsters). Then you have the original player himself, Frederick Douglass.Adina Howard’s Afro doesn’t get the credit it deserves. But the Freak Like Me singer is worthy of inclusion. (Photo by Johnny Nunez/WireImage)Admittedly, this might cause the most debate. Not for Stokely Carmichael’s role as an activist. That’s well beyond solidified. But it's really for the validity of his 'fro. Is it one or is it simply just a brother in need of a haircut?At the peak of his powers, there weren't many men cooler than Don Cornelius – regardless of race – with a more signature voice than the creator of Soul Train, a gift so invaluable to black culture it’s impossible to imagine life without it. The Afro wasn’t too shabby either. (Photo by John D. Kisch/Separate Cinema Archive/Getty Images)Here’s where we won’t argue. Clarence Williams III in 1995's Tales From The Hood scared the hell out of me. And at 30 years old, it somewhat still does. But I’m willing to give credit where it’s due. This is a quality Afro from the man who played Lincoln “Linc” Hayes in season 1, episode 23 of Keep the Faith, Baby. Williams obviously picked this out before walking on set. And I’m not mad. Not mad at all. (Photo by CBS via Getty Images)The full Afro with the sideburns leading to the handlebar mustache? Oscar Gamble, who played for the Philadelphia Phillies between 1970 and 1972, is a first ballot Afro Hall of Famer. (Photo by Louis Requena/MLB Photos via Getty Images)On the week he is set to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, we pay homage to Allen Iverson, the man known throughout the Hampton Roads area of Virginia simply as “Bubba Chuck.” Long live the Soul On Ice SLAM cover.

the radical politics behind afros

For its pre-fall campaign this year, Gucci paid homage to the Northern Soul scene of 1960s Britain. The joyful imagery, shot by Glen Luchford, was filled with mid-action scenes of black people getting down and funky and just, well, being black. In keeping with this spirit, there were plenty of models rocking 'fros, some short, some large. They conveyed a vintage hipness that so many brands — from Gucci to Prada— have been trying to capture lately. Gucci's campaign provoked the ire of many critical writers. The problem was this: black styles such as afros that have faced discrimination in the past are now being used to sell clothes. Which raises the question, how did this hairstyle go from being a symbol of political radicalism to representing luxury?"

The voluminous hairstyle — a glorious, untamed display of blackness — has been misunderstood for centuries. When captured slaves were first brought to America during the 15th century, their hair was forcefully shaved off in an effort to strip them of their sense of cultural identity. Even after gaining emancipation black people steered away from letting their hair grow out as biology intended. When Madame C.J. Walker patented the hot comb during the Reconstruction Era, scores of black women took to turning their kink and curls into straight hair — often hoping the metamorphosis would help them assimilate into white society. It was not until the Civil Rights Movement that the afro became "cool." But even then, the hairstyle's popularity was less about being "attractive" and more about being "disruptive." Rocked by the Black Panthers and iconic activists like Angela Davis, Nina Simone, and Nikki Giovanni, a single hairstyle came to represent the never-ending fight against racism.

"Our hair was a physical manifestation of our rebellion," Lori L. Tharps, coauthor of Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America, tells i-D. "The right to wear our hair the way it grows out of our heads. Saying to the establishment: 'Accept us and appreciate us for who we are.' Stop expecting us to assimilate or subjugate ourselves to make you comfortable."

Afros have frequently been categorized as "unprofessional" or "inappropriate." In her book about the beauty industry's relationship with African-American women, Style and Status, Susannah Walker relays the story of Annabelle Baker who, in 1943, was told by the Dean of Women at Hampton Art Institute that it was disrespectful for her to wear an afro while representing the school at a conference. "They told me that I should be ashamed to wear my hair in its natural state," Baker is quoted as saying.

And the pressure for black people to "tame" their hair existed for men as much as it did for women. In the 60s, it was common for men to "conk" their hair (make it straight but wavy with a homemade chemical relaxer of lye, eggs, and potatoes). Malcolm X criticized conking in The Autobiography of Malcolm X (1964) and associated the painful process with internalized self-hate. "But then my head caught fire," he recounted. "I gritted my teeth and tried to pull the sides of the kitchen table together. The comb felt as if it was raking my skin off. My eyes watered, my nose was running. I couldn't stand it…"

Black people have had to spend a lot of time, and endure serious pain, to get rid of their afros.

Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 "Soul Scene" Campaign 

The Black Panther Party made it their mission to eliminate this burden. They concerned themselves with carving out spaces for black bodies and generating appreciation and love for those bodies. Afros were the party's middle finger to white beauty aesthetics. Both men and women turned away from the plethora of methods cooked up to transform black hair into new textures and grew their hair out to eye-catching proportions.

"This brother here, myself, and all of us were born with our hair like this, and we just wear it like this because it's natural," Kathleen Cleaver, a prominent member of the Black Panther Party (who was the target of many police investigations), said during a 1968 rally. "The reason for it, you might say, is like a new awareness among black people that their own natural physical appearance is beautiful and is pleasing to them."

It'd be impossible to talk about the history of 'fros without mentioning Angela Davis. An activist and professor, Davis was put on trial for conspiracy in 1971 after four black men performed an armed takeover of a Marin County courtroom — simply because of her connections with the gunmen. When Davis fled California, she was added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List by J. Edgar Hoover. There Davis was on a wanted poster, her afro taking up more of the picture than her face. For many white Americans, it was their first time coming across radical black politics and an afro so majestically large. "I was portrayed as a conspiratorial and monstrous Communist (that is, anti-American) whose unruly natural hairdo symbolized black militancy (that is, anti-whiteness)," Davis reflects in Afro Images: Politics, Fashion, and Nostalgia (1994). Despite the fact that Davis was acquitted by a federal judge of all charges, for some, afros and violent anti-whiteness became forever synonymous.

Five decades since Angela Davis's arrest and afros still possess an air of radicalism. No matter a person of color's place in society — whether it's Solange or a teenager in middle America — blacks frequently have to defend themselves when they decide to grow an afro. In 2015, Mayor Bill de Blasio was cornered into voicing his support for his son's signature afro in the middle of an interview with hip-hop radio station Hot 97. The host asked de Blasio if his son would shave his afro if an important internship or job was on the line. "That is not happening," de Blasio quickly responded. "I want to categorically deny that Dante will ever cut his hair. He is adamant." The mere question asserted that a person of color should be not only willing, but also accepting, of changing their hair to make someone else happy. That in order for black people to create opportunities for themselves, they have to stick to certain hairstyles. 

And who can forget the outrage Beyoncé elicited from conservative outlets after her 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance? The backlash was in response to the singer dressing her dancers in Black Panther-inspired berets and afros for the black pride anthem "Formation." The Miami Fraternal Order went so far as to call Beyoncé "anti-police" because of the performance, saying, "The fact that Beyoncé used this year's Super Bowl to divide Americans by promoting the Black Panthers and her anti-police message shows how she does not support law enforcement," and called for police officers to boycott providing security for her upcoming concerts. Here it was again: conservative white media shifting a moment of unrestrained black joy and beauty into an attack on whiteness.

Is it not possible for an afro to just be an afro?

Recently, thanks to celebrities like Solange, Naomi Campbell, and Elle Varner, afros have made a comeback. This time, Professor Tharps says, the "Back to Natural" movement is tied to appreciating black hair for its uniqueness and beauty, and not for advancing a political cause. "You go to the pharmacy and there's a ton of nice smelling, expensive products for natural hair now," she says. "It helps make natural hair be looked at as luxurious.

Photography Harley Weir [The New Luxury Issue, No. 343, 2016]

Fashion has joined in on the afro wave, too. For its fall/winter 15 show, Prada generated buzz when it cast Lineisy Montero, with her short little afro, in her first ever runway show. She later appeared on the cover of i-D's The New Luxury issue. Even today's superstar black actresses, like Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong'o, have embraced short 'fros. One of the most pivotal moments yet for the natural hair movement occurred when Lupita Nyong'o appeared on the cover of Vogue's August 2015 issue. There Nyong'o stood, wearing a medium-sized afro and a Valentino haute couture dress. This was part of the Black Panthers' fight for the advancement of black people in America — a person-of-color being celebrated as one of the most beautiful people in the world.
