When we first met Diane Johnson (Marsai Martin) on award-winning U.S. sitcom Black-ish, we knew she would grow up to be a quite a formidable character.

The celebrity stylist behind Marsai's style evolution is Apuje Kalu, who has styled Insecure cast members Yvonne Orji and Jay Ellis. Thanks to Apuje, this young star's designer resume boasts the likes of Coach, Red Valentino, Pantora Bridal and Miri Couture.

And these are the red carpet and street style looks we've loved from Marsai Martin since she became a style maven:
