Today, I had the honor of attending the 8th Annual Black Women in Hollywood celebration put on by Essence Magazine thanks to L’Oreal Paris who were sponsors for the event. It was an amazing time for women of color and I was thrilled to be a part of the L’Oreal team in representing beauty and excellence within this industry. Here are some of the pics from the event. Outfit details listed below!
TGIF! What better way to celebrate the beginning of the weekend than with a fashion steal. Banana leaf printed attire has become all the rave for the Spring/Summer season. It has been seen on the likes of Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Solange…just to name a few. While these celebrities are sporting some of the higher-end designers, us common folks are left gasping at the price tags. But like the saying goes, “where there is a will, there is a way” and I have not only found a less expensive version of this trend, but it also comes in plus size (get excited!). Outfit details below!
Top dress: Just Cavalli
Bottom Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the Haute Curves show for LA Fashion Week, presented by Elite Curves International. Haute Curves is the first plus size show to hit LA Fashion Week and this year, seven independent designers were showcased. Best of all, Haute Curves added a charitable aspect to the show by partnering with City of Hope, a local charity that provides emotional and educational support to those touched with breast cancer and facilitate breast health care services. All around, it was an exciting and powerful night for women! Here are some of my favorite looks from last night’s show:
