No need for a little black dress if you can look just as good, if not better, in a black jumpsuit. The curve-hugging onesie was all the rave this weekend, with reality stars Jennifer Williams, Cyn Santana and Rashidah Ali all rocking similar styles.

TV personality Jennifer Williams flaunted her curves in a faux leather lace-up jumpsuit from her fashion collection, Classy Girl Wardrobe, while hitting the streets of New Orleans. Williams kept her look simple with minimal jewelry and open-toe heels.

 

 

While Williams was serving up major sex appeal, Love & Hip Hop: New York star Cyn Santana gave her black one-piece a casual makeover. She showed off her slim waist in a spandex suit, pairing it with a light-colored denim jacket and strappy, army-like boots.

VH1 star Rashidah Ali gave her jumpsuit some edge by styling it with a waist-length jacket and open-toe booties. She completed her outfit with a matte red lip, for a look that was bold yet sultry.

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
