Black Celebrity News: Naomi Campbell Runs with the Animals

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:40 pm by Staff

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was shot by world-renowned photographer Jean-Paul Goude for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar:

In a spread titled "Wild Things," Campbell is running with a cheetah, jumping rope with monkeys and riding a crocodile and an elephant.

The black-woman-in-the-African-wild theme is one that crops up frequently in fashion and has been in vogue since the press pegged Somalian-born model Iman as a goat herder discovered in the jungle. She was, in fact, a university graduate and the daughter of a gynecologist and a diplomat.

Wearing leopard or zebra print, and being accompanied by animals, seems to be the easiest pigeonhole for black models.

Michelle Obama Named Best Dressed

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:30 pm by Staff

One could say that she’s been campaigning as hard for this as her husband did for the presidency, but Michelle Obama did it with a lot more ease. After nearly two years of wowing the fashion world, the first lady has earned an honor she so rightly deserves — landing on Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed list.

From Jason Wu to Michael Kors, Obama’s chic-clectic choice of designers anddesigns has set her apart from just about every other first lady in U.S. history. Below are a handful of legendary looks worn by Mrs. Obama that have solidified her as an icon in my book:

The cream-colored frothy one-shoulder Jason Wu stunner she wore for the inauguration galas was regal and feminine — and just right for the occasion.

Her dual-toned knee-length Narciso Rodriguez sheath dress, which she paired with flats on Independence Day, screamed sleek, smart and totally sophisticated.

News: First Black Super Model Dies

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:39 pm by Staff

Grand dame, great beauty and pioneer in the fashion industry Naomi Sims has died of cancer. She was 61 years old.
"Naomi Sims was an incredible role model – a trailblazer who helped to define black beauty and open the doors for all of the African American models we see today — and a savvy businesswoman," a shaken Beverly Johnsontold Black Voices. "Mostly, she was a friend and someone I greatly admired. We lost a truly dynamic woman."
Sims was born in Oxford, Miss., on March 30, 1948. An awkward teen — 5-foot-10 by the time she was 13 — Sims and her family left the segregated South and moved to Pittsburgh, where she completed high school.

Sim’s mother took ill, and the gangly teen and her two sisters were placed in foster care. After graduation, the ambitious beauty moved to New York City to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Because of financial constraints, Sims left school and began modeling in the big city. She broke through at the age of 18 when she appeared on the cover of Ladies Home Journal. She was the magazine’s first African American cover model. In 1969, Sims appeared on a simple yet striking cover of Life magazine.

Was Iman Insulting Michelle Obama?

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:24 pm by Staff

"Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age."
