Shahidi’s strapless gown embraced botanical earth tones with an olive green color, and featured a series of fringe tiers on the skirt. Shahidi paired the dress with Christian Louboutin pointy-toed brown heels.
While on the show, Shahidi talked about graduating from Harvard, the Freeform series “Grown-ish” and her latest role as Tinker Bell in a new project.
On the topic of school, Fallon asked Shahidi how she balanced being a student and appearing on set to star as Zoe in “Grown-ish,” which just got renewed for its sixth season.
“I’d take a suitcase to my Wednesday class, fly, work Thursday, Friday and then fly back Saturday or Sunday,” the actress shared with Fallon. “The amount of mental free space I have, I think I’m slightly incoherent, because there’s too much brain space now. I have all thoughts firing at all times. But, yeah, I used to be at the Met like, ‘My paper on Frankfurt School is due and I only got through 50 percent of the readings before this.'”
The actress, who is returning to “Grown-ish” for its forthcoming season, is also preparing to star in Disney‘s newest live action, “Peter Pan & Wendy,” in which she will play the infamous Tinker Bell.
The second half of “Grown-ish” Season Five premieres on Freeform on Jan. 18 at 10:30 p.m. EST and is streaming the next day on Hulu.
