One of the 3 people that avidly read this blog (LOL) requested that I bring back the Beauty Inspiration posts that feature natural, beautiful looking women of color with curly/coily textured hair who happen to be models/entertainers. I miss that segment from my blog too. Seriously, how often do we see natural beauty celebrated in our youth, Eurocentric obsessed American culture?
The "It" Model du jour came to mind: Wakeema Hollis. She is a Sistah Southerner, originally from Memphis, TN. She is 24 years old and has worked steadily in the past 3 years in editorials and on the runway constantly( a size 4 and 5'9"). I hear she has a great spirit and is easy to work with/around...apparently not a cell-phone thrower. Ha!
Well, there is not much to add because she is so naturally beautiful, with especially thick gorgeous hair and lips. When I look into her eyes, I see nothing but opportunity.
I think the one above and below are my favorite photos of her.
Do any of the other 2 people that are avid readers have any comments? LOL!
