Up and coming Native actor D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai’s acting chops and humor were displayed for all to see in the first episodes of ‘Reservation Dogs’; now his style is the focus in a recent feature with VOGUE.
Ojibwe writer for VOGUE Christian Allaire sat down with D’Pharaoh (Ojibwe/Cree) and talked about his acting career and his style, including how he incorporated Native fashion into his outfits for the ‘Reservation Dogs’ press tour. D’Pharaoh worked with well-known fashion stylist Avo Yermagyan in styling his outfits together, which consisted of traditional pieces with contemporary Native fashion along with high-end pieces.
In the VOGUE feature centered on his press tour looks, the Native-made pieces D’Pharaoh wore Emme Studio, beaded medallion by Rainy Dawn Ortiz, another beaded medallion by Shaneesa Aginas.
