Bet Awards: The Fashion

Because I wasn’t about to water down the potency of Jesse Williams’ speech on Black Lives with images of the beautiful people. But of course I was watching.

My faves? Mya, Naturi Haughton and Cookie herself, Taraji P. Henson. She was bad.

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….

Cookie Lyon Will Rule Saks Fifth Avenue



Saks Fifth Avenue goes to the hood. Or rather, Cookie brings the hood to Saks. I lol’d when I read that the bastion of luxury retail would curate a collection based on the hit ghetto-fabulous TV series Empire.  Saks’ edited narrative features the designs of Jimmy Choo, Alexis Bittar, Cushnie et Ochs and MCM to name a few. Not bad.

Now, we all know how Cookie dresses. It will be a feat of miracles that Saks can keep their windows from looking like an overwrought heap of knockoffs from Canal Street with a touch of 90’s era Lil Kim. The pieces look good from what I see in the press release. I only wish there was an Ode to BooBoo Kitty and Tiana, both opportunities to take advantage of Saks enviable contemporary collections. The windows will be up from September 10 through October 7 and coincides with the start of the new season for the show.
