This Barbadian R&B beauty has evolved from a general pop sensation with a more innocent image to something a lot more siren worthy. She has become a style icon to the point where she’s getting payed mega bucks to sit front row center at major fashion events.
Her music, like her look, has changed accordingly. That’s what you get when you put marketing and music together. You get a product that the record label wants to market. So in other words, some artists must sacrifice their say towards creative power. Box them and ship them!
From crooning about “I wanna know boy If I could be ya shawty” and moving more towards a vixen of dominatrix in “Good Girl Gone Bad”, Rhianna has moved towards a more charged Beyonce-type of “I can take care of my damn self” type of woman: ”
Come here rude boy, boy
Can you get it up
Come here rude boy, boy
Is you big enough
Here is Rhianna over the years, Constantly evolving towards something else: What do you think about her looks over the years?
Sexy is walking the catwalk with confidence. Unsexy is having your your hair running off your head and, leaving your boyfriend perplexed and wondering, “what the hell just happened”?
Naomi is on a mission to the making of a double tragic: swimming with a wig and, wearing styling that is destroying her hair … maybe she’s trying to prove some point, some anti-style point? Which is a little ironic since she’s in the fashion world as a model? I’m not sure what is going on here. I thought models would have access to the best of the best. In addition, her boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin is a Russian Donald Trump!
Anyhow even the healthiest hair in the world will not last long when it is ratted, abundantly washed with hairspray, straightened, curled, or colored before every fashion show.
Growing up my mother taught me that being black was a gem. It was part of being formed by God. Kissed by the golden sun. The combination was unbeatable. I said to myself, If I am going to think black, I will think positive about it. Don’t think down on it, or think it is something in your way. And this way,when you really do want to stretch out, and express how beautiful black is, everybody will hear you. Enjoy the black beauties. Next up on a later post, I will explore this beauty in black men.

Nigerian-Sierra Leonean beauty Di’Ja (Real name: Hadiza Blell) is a rising musician taking the Canadian music scene by storm:
Arise featured these three beauties during the 2008 Africa Rising event. It was also a chance to feature couture/custom pieces by Nigerian designers: The supermodels (Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek & Liya Kebebe) were best dressed by Nigerian designers, Deola Sagoe, Fati Asibelua of MOMO Couture, Lanre DaSilva Ajayi of LDA. As I browsed through the magazine, I was overcome with glee. As a woman of African descent, I was proud to see that African fashion is booming.
