Yeah, sorry I found those pics too. Definitely not cornrows, but she’s natural and she put her hair up. Cool. I still remember Tyra fighting her about straightening her hair. Drama!

Yep! I called it! But what I’m really loving is the details of her dress!

Jasminicole

yes, congrats to yaya!
but those are a part of her headdress, not cornrows :-/ but still beautiful all the same

Patricia Kayden

Just watched her small part in “In Time”.

Congrats Yaya!

manisimone

Go yayaaaaaa!!! She was my favorite on that ANTM cycle 🙂

Elle

I’m not really sure that those are cornrows. It looks like a part of the charm/headpiece that she appears to be wearing. None the less, Yaya is looking beautiful as usual. It’s nice to see that she continued to stay true to herself on her big day.

BeautyIAM

She is just so beautiful. Congratulations to her!

IntegratedMemoirs

Congrats to her and the Hubby 🙂

I think I can’t see her hair……

Curly Queen

I hope they get better pictures soon.

Vonnie

Doubt it, lol. She strikes me as the low-key, very personal “her-wedding-pics-will-not-see-the-light-of-day” a-la Beyonce and Jay-Z type. Those look like pics someone snuck off a camera phone.

BamBam

Congrats! Yaya is my fav. ANTM contestant!

Jessica

Can’t even see it. Lol

miss j

She’s one of the reasons I went NATURAL!!!!
SHE HAS BEAUTIFUL HAIR!!! NOW, MINE IS AS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Wishing her a Blessed marriage!!!!

Landry

I have always been a fan of Yaya, ever since she was ANTM. She seems like such a classy, down to earth lady, and is a fantastic actress and model. I have so much respect for celebrities that focus on their craft, rather than the limelight. Congrats to her and her hubby—she was a beautiful bride!

Gerpha

She looks great. Happy couple. (:

Natalee

Wait, wait, wait! Can we go back to the married part?!?! Congratulations to her! I wish I could see a better picture of her hair though.

EAT.STYLE.PLAY

Exactly I had no idea she was getting married, but she does has a budding acting career. Congrats to her!

Mia_P

Y’all couldn’t get a better picture. These pictures were taken far away, blurry and I cannot even see her hairstyle or the cornrows part. But I always liked her and she looks beautiful. Congrats girl!

Its better to just ignore this chick. I really don’t know why she’s here. I think shes lost or something…

Annie L.

Her husband’s work seems interesting! Congrats to the beautiful YaYa, I loved Eva on ANTM, but YaYa looks lovely and best of luck to the couple!

bajee

Ha Ha! She’s lost. LOL.

DiJah

Congratulations Yaya!!!

Karen

Who, sorry never heard of her…

Coco

Google.

Karen

Goggle is a great search engine, it does nothing for the fact I have never heard of her!!!

Tiffani

Well now you have. :-).

You may have seen her before, though. After ANTM, she was in the movie Tron and The Kids Are Alright.Pretty much the “black chick” in both those movies.

Patricia Kayden

She was also in the movie, “In Time”.

Yaya is a model known from America’s Next Top Model (ANTM)… ANTM is a TV show where girls compete to win a contract with a top modeling agency.

Barbara

Lol, same here until I read the **helpful post below.

Biola

Why would you comment on a post just to say you’ve never heard of someone? Does it mean that person is irrelevant? Or does it mean you just don’t know? It’s just easier to look them up on google/wikipedia instead of proclaiming the person isn’t someone you know of.

NikNak

LOL. You just came in here to be mean, and to your chagrin no one else shares your sentiments. We’ve never heard of the women BGLH chooses to put up as Hairstyle Icons, and you aren’t there claming you’ve never heard of them. Go be a shrew on a gossip site. I’m sure your comments will go over better over there, where you belong.

Tiffani

Hahaha Niknak! I agree.

Tetima

Aww I’m so happy for her and wish her a friutful married life!! Loved her on ANTM then and love her even more now.

freeretrochics

I always was torn between Yaya and Eva the diva,but I loved that she didn’t want to change anything about herself. Congratulations!

KD

GAWJUS! Congratulations goes out to the couple.

+1 !!! =)
