Amandla Stenberg, star of George Tillman Jr.'s new coming-of-age story, The Hate U Give, isn't allowing society's standards of beauty to decide how she's supposed to look. At the European premiere of her new film, 19-year-old Stenberg arrived wearing a spaghetti-strapped gown that allowed everyone to see her natural armpit hair.


She posted pictures of her night on Instagram alongside this caption:

#drama #armpit,

Fans online lavished Stenberg with praise and support!
