Brown Girls Do Covers

Supermodels were they belong, on the cover of magazines!!! So refreshing to see fab brown girls Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman on this months issue of Teen Vogue. In the article they discuss the fashion industry and each other. A definite must read! Here are two of my favorite pics from the fab spread:

So Fierce. So Fab.

Must Have Fall Bag: Chanel Coco Cocoon

Karl Lagerfeld has done it again, and the new Coco Cocoon Line is completely addictive. These new Fall/Winter 2009/10 bags, inspired by England it-girl Lily Allen, are both fashionable and versatile, a sign of the economic times. Made in washed lambskin or nylon (think fluffy down jacket), they can be reversed to reveal the signature Chanel quilted pattern. Here are some stills of the campaign:

Fierce doesn't even begin to describe... Check out the video

Prices start around $400 in the small leather goods for a lambskin keycase and go up exponentially for the handbags and travel bags, but these are sure to last a lifetime!

Stay Fierce. Stay Fab.

Brown Girl of the Moment

I can't help but love Ms. Angela Simmons. She's fierce, fashion-forward, and fearless. And that Chanel Coco Cocoon that debuted at the beginning of this month is F-A-B Fab!! Oh and I'm all about a red lip! Definitely brown girl approved. Loves it!

Good Hair!

I am so intrigued by the new Chris Rock Film "Good Hair" opening October 9th in theaters. There has been so much media hype surrounding this film. It has really got me thinking. I ask myself daily why I subscribe to the idea that in order to be happy I must wear weave, I understand that the ideas of beauty that the media has fed me for over 21 years have developed my perception of what is beauty. So yes, I do feel somewhat bound to the ideals of culture, but I do have a say in the matter. I am here because I like how I look. I like long hair (sometimes down to by butt) Do I like it because society tells me its nice? Probably, but I like it none the less. While it is a multi-billion dollar industry I honestly don't mind putting money into it because I appreciate the results. Good Hair? Bad Hair? I choose to use chemicals and weaves in my hair because it makes me happy, not oppressed, or trapped, or captive maybe as others feel. I'm about being happy and if that means natural or processed that is fine by me! Many people might see it as a struggle, but I consider it a labor of love.

Here's Solonge Knowles on Oprah taking about her decision to cut all her hair off:

Here's Nia Long talking on Chelsea Lately about weave:

Interesting. Interesting. Interesting.

Stay Fierce. Stay Fab.
