New York Magazine's The Cut has an awesome style feature on the wonderful beauties that grace the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa. Photographer  Keagan Green captures their amazing crowns in this editorial. Here are a few of my faves.

Two shows that I really want to see:

Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art will be on view at The Studio Museum in Harlem until March 8, 2015. So see it now!
This fall, The Studio Museum in Harlem will debut Speaking of People: Ebony, Jet and Contemporary Art, an exhibition exploring the ways contemporary artists use Ebony and Jet magazines as a resource and as inspiration in their practices. Published by Johnson Publishing Company for over sixty years, both magazines are cultural touchstones for many African Americans and often represent a commonality between people of diverse backgrounds.

I had no idea that young actress Zendaya Coleman was being ridiculed about her locs. I thought she looked beautiful on the Oscars red carpet. Sadly, America is still catching up with the idea of beautiful, and with all of the tremendous gains of Black actresses on the screen recently, one would think her hair would be a non-issue. Talkshow host Giuliana Rancic made an insensitive comment regarding her look: 
"I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed.”

<< Facepalm. >>

Zendaya expressed her disappointment eloquently last night:

Zoe Saldana won the Oscars red carpet hands-down (sorry Jennifer!). 

There is just something about this stunning blush-colored dress, elegant draping, and overall flattering silhouette that makes this dress just the right amount of sexy and glam. I loved the neutrals that everyone was wearing and it gave the evening a lighter, softer feel away from the heaviness of recent awards shows. The other winners were Oprah, director Ava Duvernay, and Lupita Nyong'o's Vanity Fair afterparty gown.  

Catch more flicks on Facebook.

Because the best action is in the front row. Indulge.
