So I dreamed that I was in the land of Wakanda last night after getting excited about the new Black Panther movie. I had a home with corn fields and was the happiest woman ever! Anyway, last night Black Panther premiered in Hollywood and the fashion on the purple carpet was absolutely amazing. As a black woman I’m incredibly excited about this movie and can’t wait to see it.
I rarely talk about celebrities but I just had to mention some of the fashion on the purple carpet last night. Musicians Chloe and Halle were in attendance wearing Elisabetta Franchi while actress Lupita Nyong’o looked like African royalty wearing an Atelier Versace dress. Janeshia Adams-Ginyard stunned in a head to toe African inspired crop top, skirt and hat by Tamara Cobus while Angela Bassett wore a canary yellow Naeem Khan jumpsuit.

This week I attended one of the MTV VMA Song of Summer Celebration Concerts with Jason Derulo and Timeflies at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Summer casual was the name of the game as the summer heat made its way ‘back’ to the city. I did my favorite Bebe African Print jumper and Christian Louboutin metallic heels and it was great because it was really hot out!
I met stylists and photographers Rachel and Nicole. Rachel was wearing this great Topshop Motel Skirt I’ve seen everywhere. Anyway, MTV has been doing these concerts all through the week with celebrities like Ciara and Robin Thicke. Are you excited for the VMAs?
