The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira Gets Major Makeover in InStyle Magazine (PHOTOS)

On AMC’s The Walking Dead, Danai Gurira plays Michonne, a survivor of the zombie apocalypse who made her first appearance when she annihilated a Walker with a Katana. (Yep, she wields a Katana... deal with it.) In real life, however, the actress ditches her character’s cargo pants and dreads in favor of super sophisticated ensembles.

In the October 2013 issue of InStyle magazine, the 35-year-old shows off her versatility in fashion-forward outfits. Whether she’s strutting her stuff in Valentino or her character’s more functional ensembles, one thing is certain — to be a badass, you have to dress the part.

“Clothes manifest confidence,” Danai says. “I’d never go out in sweats, for example. I have a small waist, curvy hips, and a booty from Pilates — and I don’t mind showing them off in form-fitting clothes.”
