Flaunt Follicles: My Natural Hair Last Week

Last week I wore my hair natural to give my beautiful tresses some rest from the stress of my flat iron! So here are the different styles I flaunted:

 Bantu knot-out pulled back with satin scarf tied as bow
Bantu knot-out
 Braid-out pulled back with satin scarf as bow

And here are a few natural-hair inspired pics I've archived over the years gathered all over the web:

Flaunt Designer: Azzedine Alaia

I wanted to feature one of my favorite designers Azzedine Alaia, because everything he creates is more than a pair of shoes or an accessory... it's more like a piece of art. Alaia specializes in high-end leather goods and is top-of-the line! The price-point of his pieces typically start in the thousands so it's not that simple to own a pair especially because they aren't sold everywhere. In fact, Alaia is super selective to the boutiques they sell to not to mention the deliveries are somewhat unknown.  When a store receives their shipment is when they receive it so imagine the Alaia waiting list! However, if you happen to own anything from his collection one thing for sure, it'll last a lifetime! Looks like this might be my fashion investment piece for 2010 Flaunt Followers!

Flaunt Fashionista: Janelle Monae

The beautiful, flawless Janelle Monae! Isn't she stunning?! There's something about her that's super fabulous yet angelic at the same time! Also if you haven't already please do yourself a favor and go to an actual store, and purchase an actual CD entitled, "The ArchAndroid" by Janelle Monae! You'll be thrilled you did!

My fav songs: "Dance or Die", "Neon Valley Street", & "Say You'll Go" to name a few because seriously I would say all of them!

Flaunt Film: Lady Gaga "Alejandro"

Lady Gaga's video for "Alejandro" recently premiered. This song is kinda hot and although she stated that the video is a "celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community", I think it's also safe to say that it's an appreciation to Madonna along the past videos she's done!

Flaunt Mag: Rihanna covers ELLE July 2010

Rihanna looks ultra-fab on the cover of ELLE magazine's July issue. Aside from looking fierce, she discusses her fav designers, her current and past relationship and more. The issue will be on newsstands June 15! 

Flaunt Designer: Hussein Chalayan

Over the past 3 months I've been exposed to numerous designers while working at my amazing internship! One of them being the incredible Hussian Chaylan. His designs are pretty straight forward with a slight edgy approach. For his Spring 2010 collection the color palette includes hues of navy, platinum, ivory, ice blue and grey. With clean horizontal lines to mask ones waist-line the silhouette is quite classic and flattering. I really can get enough of this designer so I really couldn't wait to flaunt him today!! What do you think Flaunt Followers, you like?
