Ava DuVernay Calls Giuliana Rancic Ignorant

Published

on

Director Ava DuVernay is rallying behind Zendaya Coleman after the young actress slammed E! News’ Giuliana Rancic for making negative comments about her locs.

“You’re beautiful, Queen. We bless the ignorant and wish them well. Onward. xo,” Ava tweeted in response to Zendaya’s lengthy Instagram message shaming Rancic for suggesting that the Disney star looked like she smelled of patchouli oil or weed during Sunday night’s Oscars.

In the IG post, Zendaya referred to DuVernay and Grammy nominated star, Ledisi who both wear locs and stated that her Oscars hairstyle was in efforts to make a statement.

“To say that an 18 year old young woman with locs must smell of patchouli oil or “weed” is not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive,” Coleman wrote.

“My [me] wearing my hair locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough.”

Fashion guru, Claire Sulmers, who was recently acknowledged as one of Ebony’s Power 100, also reacted to the Disney star’s post, writing on Instagram:

“I wear locs. I don’t smoke or smell of weed. Thanks @zendaya for confronting stereotypes and ignorance head on.”

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
