This year The ESPYS came to show out with the most star studded guest list; even FLOTUS Michelle Obama was there to present the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage to Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
The annual awards show all about #BlackGirlMagic happened this week in New Jersey, with of course, all our favourite celebrities, actors/actresses, athletes and more! The awards was hosted by Taraji. P. Henson and performers included Ledisi & Anthony Hamilton.
The Colored Girl is an agency dedicated to disrupting the status quo through fashion and beauty. What does this really mean? The Colored Girl essentially creates the campaigns and finds the beautiful chocolate skin models you have been seeing pop up in more and more common place adverts now. To celebrate their first year anniversary, founders Victory Jones & Tori Elizabeth collaborated with 13 gorgeous melanin Queens for their “Full Bloom Campaign” which is meant to embrace black women of all shades, sizes and all their similarities and differences.
Get ready for a whole lot of chocolate deliciousness on your screen!
“The colors represent the joy and gratitude we feel, and that many Black women feel; but that is almost never seen commercially.”
It looks like kendrick Lamar is not staying so “humble” with his capsule collection named after his upcoming album, “Damn.” For now it looks like the line is going to be very basic, almost like concert memorabilia, which makes sense. He will be selling his merch at pop ups all around the US & Canada starting in Texas at the Black Market, last Friday. Other cities include NYC, Philly, DC, Toronto, Chicago, LA, Miami & Las Vegas, until September 2nd. Some of the items are already for sale on line and the rest of the collection will be unveiled as the pop up tour continues. So far the price points are around $30 – $60 which seems reasonable.
I can honestly say that I am surprised I have not seen half of this collection in Lagos already! 2 weeks is more than enough time for our fashionable Lagosians but perhaps everyone isn’t back with their summer loot yet. While the Supreme x Louis collection seems to be all the range in the mens world, it also slips in quite comfortably to a woman’s wardrobe. I would definitely rock the backpack, travel trunk & denim jacket. I’m not a huge fan of the Louis Vuitton Monogram on everything, maybe just luggage, so I’m not fond of the driving gloves and bedroom accessories. These leather slides though, are everything. If you’re a forward planner and you want to get a good gift, now’s the time to buy for birthdays, Christmas etc before it’s all gone!
OFF White is one of those brands that could potentially be forgotten. They are best known from stars like Janelle Monae, Issa Rae, Nicole Kidman & Bella Hadid. They always keep it simple with a little added falir which is what I love about them. They create “basics” that aren’t basic. I am also extremely in love with the amount of sheer lace incorporated into this collection. It’s everything and more for those of us who want to show it, without really showing it!
We hear the new Spiderman movie is beyond amazing so we can’t wait to g see it! The LA Premiere was held last week with some of the biggest names coming out to see what the new Spider Man has in store.
