Rihanna Better Work

Rihanna takes the cover of British Vogue for April and shows off some pieces from her new collaborative collection with Monolo Blahnik. She better werk!



The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes… I am sorry for that woman because I’m going to literally run after her, shouting, ‘Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?’ I’m going to have a moment! – Rihanna







Winter Sexy: Lala’s Thigh High Boots


With Jonas behind us, I’m thankful to put away the clonky snowboots in favor of a sleeker silhouette. Lala is fabulous and sexy here in her thigh high Loubous, that make up a dope all-black ensemble. I have some thigh highs, but I may just invest in a super luxe pair in the near future. For now, here are three steals I found:

Taraji Kills It For Elle Magazine

It was very important to me that she not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time. – Taraji P. Henson on why her character Cookie Lyon is not a caricature.


Taraji P. Henson is killing the game right now. Straight off the heels of her Golden Globes win, she graces the February 2016 cover of Elle in what would seem to be a serendipitous  landmark. She, along with Viola Davis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Olivia Wilde, and Priyanka Chopra made the cover for Elle’s annual Women in TV Issue. Nice to see women of color nicely represented in 3 out of the 5 covers.

Everyone is a Style Winner at the Globes



Seems like everyone is stepping up their game in 2016. Everyone was nearly flawless. And of course, a shiny award a la Ms. Henson, doesn’t hurt either…

These ladies just slayed….

A Slaying Shoutout to Lupita


You can say the world was literally blinded by her beauty in this stunning, bejeweled gown. I just loved everything about her look.


But I could still appreciate the other fashionable sisters on the red carpet. They did their thing:

The Importance of Serena

#SportspersonoftheYear #SerenaWilliams

I’m very passionate on the court, but I’ve learned to be fierce more on the inside.

I’m so happy for Serena. It’s definitely been her year, and I’m proud that a Black woman of strength and beauty can grace the cover of this Magazine with a befitting title that commands attention and respect.

There are so many rules to this beauty thing, and when it comes to Black women, the game is doubly slanted. Over the years, commenters on blogs in general have referred to Serena as part of the Williams brothers, as if muscle and athletic acclaim were something to be belittled, as opposed to lithe frames or surgically enhanced body parts. Serena proudly turned her shoulder to the haters, by winning, and winning, over and over again.

I love Serena for being boldly, unapologetically Serena.

Weekeday Swag: Lupita Nyong’o Covers Essence

I had talked so much about who I was that I’d forgotten who I was. – Lupita Nyong’o


Well it’s about time. Acclaimed film actress and Broadway star Lupita Nyong’o landed her first cover of Essence for their January 2016 issue. Looking fly as ever, she talks about her new role in the upcoming Star Wars movie. Lupita, I am a lifelong fan.


Lala Anthony. Goals.

Something to think about before you grab another hamburger off the grill, or knock back that oh so delicious sangria. Mrs. Carmelo Anthony.

Thandie Newton’s African Style

Traditionally people wait for permission to be empowered and I think what is changing now is that women are empowering themselves and that is really a key change… We don’t have to wait for permission.


I love seeing a stylish Black woman in her equally stylish home. Zimbabwean actress Thandie Newton gives us a glimpse into her Malibu home in the latest issue of New African Woman Magazine. In it, she discusses her life of motherhood, embracing the power of the woman,  and the state of African politics, all while dripping in sumptuous African-flavored textiles and jewels.

The Strength and Style of Serena


I notice the other girls have similar preparations to mine, and I’m like, ‘Hmmm … well, you don’t want to admit where you got that from, right?’ -Serena Williams


I just got the chance to indulge in the article on Serena Williams in the latest issue of New York Magazine. Body critics be damned, that woman is beautiful, talented, and smart. I have to wonder if all of the hate and commentary on her femininity are simply subtle cries of envy of a woman who has sustained a successful athletic career for well over a decade, and has the abs of a dream goddess.  Either way, Serena stays winning.
