Is it just me, or does Corinne Bailey Rae look alot like Josephine Baker? They both have wonderfully expressive eyes.

Love Josephine’s eyes in this photo. I. Want. Corinne’s. Hair!!! The chic site 55 Secret Street has a styling suggestion for twist outs, and a brush with the chanteuse herself. I love Rae’s delicate songs, Like a Star and Choux Pastry Heart. Bless her. I always have love for ladies who aren’t afraid to step away from the norm, who express a unique style. Funny, because on her VH1 Soul countdown, she picked Beyonce for her number one video! Their fashion senses couldn’t be more different, I think.I plan to try twisting out my hair this week. I might have alot of time for at home beauty treatments on my hands, if Ernesto decides to terrorize Miami. Just when I was hoping we’d escape unscathed this hurricane season. I’m approaching this week with extreme trepidation.

Hi! I just linked to your site from Crunk and Disorderly! I'm glad I did....your site is fantastic...I will bookmark you. Do you mind if I add you as a link to my blog? WOW, I've never noticed how much these ladies look alike. I LOVE CBR and her style. She's such a refreshing and much-needed change of pace in the music scene. La Baker is an icon indeed, I'm sure CBR would be honored to by the similarites.

I love corrine's music and I think shes just adorable and yes I agree she does look like Josephine . I wanted to do my hair something like hers sorta... well maybe more like Janelle Monae's, just really a natural feel. I just recently got it cut over the summer but fall will be here soon and winter then after, so im already planning to grow it back. I love the way natural hair looks vs chemically proccessed hair.

Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting, I love the fact that Afrobella is becoming a dialogue! I want to know what you guys are using and thinking and feeling. It encourages me to keep on the AfroBella journey =)
