This weekend the New York Times featured the stunning Esperanza Spalding on the cover, and devoted part of their super stylish, ever inspiring T Magazine to celebrating natural hair. With images this beautiful, I’m motivated to subscribe!

The Nightie Aphrodites feature was photographed by Alice O’Malley and styled by Susan Winget. These are stunning images, destined for a million reblogs on Tumblr and buckets of love on every natural hair site around the world. These photos just underscore what we know — that natural hair isn’t just beautiful, it’s elegant and sexy and enviably stylish.

Solange Knowles’ hair was styled by Chuck Amos for Bumble and Bumble. Corinne Bailey Rae and Les Nubians were styled by Gerald DeCock, using Oribe. (PS: Mr. DeCock your paintings are amazing)!
