Chimamanda Adichie recently attended Harper’s Bazaar‘s Women of the Year Awards. She was an honoree at the event and shared a heartfelt message on Instagram, thanking the magazine for what she describes as “an evening that felt like a gift.”

Here is her full message:

“Thank you Harper’s Bazaar for recognizing the full complexity of women’s lives. To be in a space filled with possibility and an air of genuine goodwill. To know that my words matter to so many women I admire. An evening that felt like a gift. With gratitude.” ~CNA

Adichie documented her red carpet experience in a series of Instagram posts, all of which shows that she had a wonderful time at the event. The award winning author looks stunning in a sheer flowing vintage-style gown by Nigerian designer Moofa. She completed the look with a Dior bag, a vintage pin and tuck hairstyle by Lulu’s Curls, and glam makeup by London-based MUA Bernice Boateng.

Adichie is no stranger to the red carpet, so we are not surprised that she nails it.

Congrats to Adichie for taking home an award!
