Every week I’m going to highlight my favorite posts from around the blogosphere, to keep you bellas up to date on what’s happening in hair, beauty, fashion and more!
If you watched the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, you may have seen some um, questionable red carpet looks. But there were some real red carpet winners, and Glee’s Amber Riley was among them! Blaq Vixen Beauty has the breakdown. Loved her bright pink Cover Girl lip! And whoever Amber’s stylist is, she KNOWS how to dress a full figured female! Hats off to her!
I’m so so proud of my friend Charles Wade. An esteemed stylist who has put in GREAT work at Vibe and Honey magazine, he was sick of seeing tastemakers of the past complain about the lack of black fashion editors working today, without doing anything to encourage the next crop of up and coming black fashion influencers to come. Charles has taken the gloves off and gotten down to WORK. Charles started The New York Fashion Week Internship Placement Project, and has chosen ten lucky up and coming fashion industry employees to come to NYFW for this inaugural honor – those are the chosen few in the photo above! I’m going to meet them when I go to NYC next week and I’m SO excited. The NYFWIPP is seeking donations and assistance click here for details!
I’m working on a blog post in my mind about the natural hair craze, and this photo couldn’t have come along at a better time.
This is Tiffany “New York” Pollard. She’s rocking a natural look now – photo and info via NecoleBitchie.com! I think she looks amazing. Here’s hoping she likes the look and sticks with it. You don’t need a thousand dollar weave, 2 inches of makeup and cleavage up to your chin to be beautiful!
I’m still featuring beautiful natural women over at Essence.com, and my latest Natural Hair Diary is from a dear friend – Julia Coney of All About The Pretty. She’s so awesome!
While catching up on the hottest gossip from one of my favorite blogs MissJia.com, I learned that B. Scott interviewed one of my all time hair icons, Ms. Chaka Khan! The interview was inspiring, cute, funny and salacious as only B. Scott serves it up. Love it!!
OMG, did you SEE the BET Celebration of Gospel last night? I have but five words for you. Whitney Houston and Kim Burrell.
WOW. Seriously, tears were in my eyes. Is Whitney officially BACK now? I hope so!
Happy Monday bellas!
