ne would assume that as summer’s winding down, Black stars would retreat their sartorial eagerness in preparation for a new season. But to our pleasant surprise last week, Black ladies around the globe proved unrelenting and shone bright in sparkles, as well as clear cut and body fitting numbers that kept the mood right for a fashion frame of mind.
Even those who made an attempt to keep it simple inculcated glitzy details in the form of alluring and complementary accessories that expectedly boosted things up in pupil-dilating ways.
What’s not to appreciate when someone makes a commitment to bless you with their style? If it’s not a sonorous tune emanating from her vocal cords, it’s a surreal beauty that looks like something that stepped out of a fairy tale. Ace Hollywood singer and actress, Jennifer Hudson looked every bit magical in a gold statement ball gown by Dolce and Gabanna. She rocked a matching headband for regal emphasis and what’s impossible to ignore is the bejeweled bodice, extravagant train, and pleated tulle details sneak peeking from below the dress. Magnificent doesn’t begin to cut it.
At this point, Nigerian style star Chioma Ikokwu needs no formal introduction as she has proven countless times that style doesn’t happen by accident, it’s intentional. And intentional she went last week in a body fitting frock with a corset back view by talented Nigerian designer Veekee James. This was paired with a matching Bottega Veneta woven clutch purse and the rest is bling-stry.
The styles shared by Black celebs and top fashion influencers last week were nothing short of chic, edgy, and glamorous and it’s safe to say that we are, as usual, living vicariously through them. Black style queens.
