Nightie Aphrodites x New York Times Magazine Celebrates Afros

“How to pull of a Heartbreaking evening gown? Just Use Your Head.”

This is so dope.  The New York Times magazine, “T”, fall fashion 2011 shows off Afros in a black and white spread by Alice O’Malley.  The natural hotties are of course Solange, Esperanza Spalding, Les Nubians, June Temple, and Corrine Bailey Rae.  They are modeling beautiful evening gowns and their gorgeous natural hair.   Which one is your favorite photo?

Solange x Left Side Drive

Check out the released track “Left Side Drive” by Solange which was created years ago and she decided to finally release an unfinished track over this past weekend.  I had a recent conversation just last night about the Beyonce vs. Solange image and I have to admit Solange is growing on me.  I’m glad she isn’t trying to follow her sister’s footsteps in trying to be a pop star and instead she is evolving as her own person.

Solange, Cassie, and Selita Ebanks New Ambassadors for Carol’s Daughter Multiracial Campaign

Solange, Cassie, and Selita Ebanks are the new Faces of the Carol’s Daughter Multiracial Campaign.  By soliciting “Beauty is Diversity” these ladies are on the newest cover of WWD Style Magazine representing the three nationalities that make up the recent demographic shift reported by the U.S. Census.  According to Lisa Price, founder of this line, she wanted her spokesman to represent the multiracial diversity that makes up the country today.  I think it’s dope that Carol’s Daughter is not limiting her products to one ethnicity, but instead providing skin and hair products for mutli-ethnic women.  Just a side note, Solange has really revamped her image and I am really enjoying her new representation.  Her confidence is at an all time high, must have something to do with being the new spokeswoman. Way to go!

Why Don’t You Love Me?

The queen of writing every girl’s anthems, Beyonce, takes a backseat as her sister Solange writes the song “Why Don’t You Love Me” and releases the video on twitter for all her fans to see.  Of course Beyonce is taking a break, however, whether she’s in the studio or not you will not forget about this diva.  If you haven’t already here is the 50’s inspired music video to “Why Don’t You Love Me”.
