A well fitted cropped  suit can never really be a don’t no matter how loud the print. Things to keep in mind: is to let show as much skin as possible hencethe deep v-neckline and  open toes awhile also have a good lip color an defined not overly made-up eyes.

Together with NY-based design director Jacob Wildschiodtz, Ulrika Lundgren created the independent magazine ‘Rika” a manifesto of Rika’s philosophy:

Each issue features women in the arts, whose personality and vision are inspiring to readers worldwide.

Video: Solange Knowles ‘Losing You’

02 October 2012, 18.36 | Posted in Music, celebrity, video | 1 comment »

We wrote about the making of the Solange Knowles video for the song “Losing You” and now we have the finished product.  Filmed in South Africa, it is a surprisingly sweet song about lost love. Give a listen and see if it doesnt somehow it reminds of vintage Madonna…and something else which is so darn familiar and yet I cannot name it but it’s 80s new wave, that much I know! [UPDATE: Okay so it's produced by Blood Orange's Devonte Hyndes which explains the 80s synth sound, which also shows up in his song "Champagne Coast."]

As for style, it is of course off-the-charts G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S., the people, the fashion, the lovingly shot local scene shots, it’s a stunner flat out (Note to SGP: you are gonna DIE over the menswear). And then there’s the added fun of watching Solanges dance moves and seeing the connection between her and her older sister. By the end, like me, you may find yourself utterly charmed by La Hermana and rooting for her to win.

Please Leave Solange Knowles’ Hair Alone

Natural hair in the case of women of African descent when it’s not chemically straightened  comes in all varieties of curl patterns, textures ect. And depending on where you are in the world,  you either grew up loving it not thinking much about it or, maybe you experienced the need to wear it straight. We’re not getting into the debate of straight versus natural because that is an individual choice. What we do have to highlight is that there was a time not too long ago where very few , if any women of color were seen in the spotlight rocking their natural  curly/kinky hair.

While we love the sight of Solange Knowles, Esperanza Spalding, Macy Gray to name a few , think of how many times you’ve seen a big afro, in a courtroom, on a high level executive board or on a fortune 500 CEO? All this means is that minds have to get open a lot more for these occurrences to be commonplace and, mostly there cannot be debates on  texture decorum .Who made us judges of what another woman’s hair texture should look like? Move forward and style your fabulous hair  the way you want. #enough.
