Teyana Taylor continues to give new meaning to the phrase #bodygoals. The 25-year-old artist hit the Soul Train Awards red carpet on Sunday, donning an elegant yet revealing gown that showed off all of her assets. The sheer dress featured a nude bodysuit-like corset and black embellishments, which cascaded down the gown.
The dress was designed by fashion label The Blonds and she paired it with Givenchy sandal heels.
Taylor got the seal of approval from her 10-month-old daughter, Junie, who affectionately gave her a kiss as they posed on the carpet.
The 2016 Soul Train Awards are set to air November 27 on Centric and BET.
Lupita Nyong’o Slams Magazine For Editing Out Her Kinks & Coils
When will these magazines learn…
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.
