From the moment she appeared on screen in her headscarf during the trailers for and in the first episode of Atlanta, Zazie Beetz left quite an impression.

Beetz plays Van, the mother of Earn’s (Donald Glover) child and an on-again, off-again love. Much like the actress that plays her, Van’s presence and style is a mix of bohemian eclecticism and self-assurance.

Beetz, who has been performing since she was a child, grew up splitting her time between New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood and Berlin, Germany. Currently a Harlem resident, she’s also lived in paris. Her personal style reflects her world traveler spirit — it’s a mix of headwraps, patterns, and mixed prints.

“I’m a huge scarf person! I wrap my hair and scarves into dresses!” Beetz tells Vogue.

As it’s pretty clear that her role in Atlanta will be a breakout one for the young star, we’re expecting some major fashion press for Beetz in the near future.
