'227' Actress Regina 'Brenda' King Rocks Purple Box Braids in New Photos
Famous "227" actress, Regina King looks gorgeous as she wears a new hairdo. King sports lengthy purple box braids, and the internet can't get enough of her!
Regina King rose to fame in 1985 after she became a cast member of the classic American sitcom, "227." She played the role of Brenda Jenkins, Mary Jenkins' smart daughter.
The role quickly won Regina devoted followers so that when the show came to a final halt in 1990, she had already become a household name. Recent images of the actress show that she still looks a lot like smart little Brenda Jenkins!
A few days ago, the now widely acclaimed actress shared a series of photos to show off her new hair. The bold colour choice (purple) would seem like a rather drastic choice for many, but the mother of one was able to pull it off.
Regina shared three photos via her Instagram, @iamreginaking and captioned them with just one purple heart emoji. The first photo shows the top half of Regina formally dressed wearing a long-sleeved black wrap jacket.
The picture was taken from a side view, and it shows her face sporting a sleek makeup, the only accessory visible is small gold hoops.
The photo has Regina outdoors, and the sun cast a lovely hue over the "Big Bang Theory" actress and seemed to enhance the beauty of her beautifully styled braids.
The second picture is a shot taken during Regina's appearance at HBO Summer TCA Panels. It made the first time the 40-year-old would debut her purple locks. For the high-end occasion, she wore a lengthy floral Prada dress that was just the perfect match for her well-styled purple braids.
Finally, the last image can be referred to as a treasure; it is a selfie of a makeup-free Regina. Just days old, the photos have quickly sparked the attention of many fans on Instagram, and so far, they have nearly 80k likes as well as a thousand comments!
The comments section is not just filled with expressions from stunned fans but with supportive words from Regina's fellow stars.
"Cute! And everybody can't do that and still look good!" wrote famous American Olympian Lisa Leslie. Renowned stylist and Beyonce's mother Tina Lawson also shared numerous fire emoticons and hearts to show her approval.
One fan, @lexitelevision commented:
"I love the no-makeup shot, especially!! Great amazing skin!!!"
Another @killa_tha_don quipped:
"Black don't crack you still look like you was on 227."
The gorgeous actress is near fifty, but that is sure hard to tell, judging by her fresh looks. The third photo indeed makes it look like Regina has found the fountain of youth!
