Rachel Roy’s AHA Moment

RachelRoyB1

Recently, gorgeous and fabulous fashion designer had what Oprah might call, an “aha moment.” No, it didn’t come during my interview with her about plus size fashion (although I’m hoping inspiration struck there…HEY Rachel!). And it didn’t happen last night when she was on Project Runway. (did you see her? HEY Rachel!) Rachel’s moment came […]

NYFW Look of the Day – Last Day in Lace

Miss Jay Robert Verdi Afrobella

I was due to leave New York on Monday afternoon, but boy oh boy I didn’t account for the dramatics of the day. First things first – you know that Afrobella is typically a positive blog. I try not to trash something unless I’ve had an absolutely abhorrent experience. And this is why, when I […]

One of the absolute highlights of this year’s New York Fashion Week was my trip to the Carol’s Daughter flagship store on […]

Yesterday’s NYFW Celebrity Sighting

Miss J at C Siriano

It’s J. Alexander, AKA Miss J from America’s Next Top Model! Right after the Christian Siriano show I was waiting for friends outside Lincoln Center. I’m happy to report that Miss Jay was cordial with fans and paused to take pictures (but I was a bit too shy to ask!)

Gorgeous Naturals, Howard University, and the Ford Fiesta

Elise for Ford

Back in February, I had the opportunity to be part of something really special. I went to Howard University to cover a unique casting call for Ford Focus – their Inspired By Color event was SO Afrobella-tastic. I was absolutely astounded by the beauty of the aspiring models – all students at Howard with SO. […]
