Jessica Chastain covers November W Magazine!

October 28, 2015

Loving Jessica Chastain’s complete style transformation on the cover of the November W Magazine styled by Edward Enninful and photographed by Steven Klein. The ‪‎fashion editorial‬ inside the magazine is equally stunning and appropriately titled “Transformer,” as clearly evidenced in the beauty look Chastain wears on the cover and in the editorial. I literally had to look multiple times and then check the name on the cover to even recognize her. Fabulous!

October 20, 2015

Empire star, the incredible Taraji P Henson was photographed au naturale in gorgeous cornrows, by legendary fashion photographer Bruce Weber for latest issue of the Carine Roitfeld’s magazine, CR Fashion Book. Generally, Henson is photographed and filmed wearing a wig or weave.This photo reminds me of vintage photos of another powerhouse Black actress, the incomparable Cicely Tyson. Tyson has said in interviews how personally imperative it was for her to be photographed with her natural hair and to wear it as such in particular roles back in the day.

Favorite Trends: Hair of the Night

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 7.08.50 PM

Viola Davis in a white Max Mara and Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael were divine in their angelic attire. They are both scene stealers here, not for really nice dresses, but for there gorgeous hair last night. Davis’s beautiful ‘do was my favorite of the night. It reminded me of The photo shoot she did a few years back for the LA Times where she skipped the wig and went au naturale I love her with or without magic hair, but thought she looked especially fabulous last night. And Carmichael stood out for me because she was going for the effortless hair look that others do, but she made it work and looked great. I always say people want to go effortless, but even that needs some effort to really work. No shade!
