    Love wearing the high bun!

    Tracee’s dress looks a bit odd on her, I would have rather seen her in that outfit that dark skinned lady below has on, now that’s stunning! BTW, who is that lady? She’s gorgeous. Never the less, I love the nude face and effortless high bun look on Tracee.

      The dress really brings out Danai Gurira’s flawless, toned shape! Wonderful.

    • hey yall! ive been natural for the last 2 years but,no hair cut for the last year. im livong my hair and the longer it gets the more im determined to never get another haircut least for now ! i find that since ive had my natural hair ive been through a mixed bag of emotions,from my hair being really really kinky,to family members asking me why dont you texturize anymore or at least hotcomb it.I tell them its not where im thinking of coloring it,since my wedding is next week,and can you belive after all this time my mom still wants to hotcomb my hair for the wedding!!!! no way!my fiance is growing out his hair in the back to loc up and the rest is bald and he gets asked about that all the time.why cant people embrace individuality,like we are weird?! we love our hair and when we are blessed with children we are intilling in them black conciousness and history and a love for their hair,and a love for God and how he made them. Love ,Peace and Hair Grease!!!!!

  • Danai makes me miss The Walking Dead. lol.

    • hey sistas!! I just wanetd to let you all know that I am growing my hair out natural again. Last time I had an afro it was in the 7th and 8th grade thn I permed it because I was going to high school. Wish I didn’t. But I’ll be glad when this perm does grow out. I have so many ideas and styles I want to try. Because not I wont have to buy all these chemicals for my hair. I realized that I love my natural hair. I know how that one girl feels about wearing her afro to school because I felt the same way when I was in middle school. But turned out they LOVED it!! Some wanetd their hair like it but had no way to do. Yes I did have some followers come to school within the next few months with a made up afro. We should all bring afros back and keep them here. They are so pretty I don’t see why I permed my hair. and if I ever get tired of the fro then all I have to do is flat iron it. You can play with color as freely as you want. I never really dyed my hair when I had the perm but now Im about to have fun with my hair. Embrace and love it even more Not going to be worried about my hair breaking off. Its such a relief when you embrace who you are and dont have to do what everyone else thinks is beautiful. Truly I think afros are here to stay.

    I love Tracee’s dress. Very little girlish, but elegant at the same time. She likes to push the envelope. It’s something else that bothers me, but maybe it’s the lighting or something. And I love high buns; her hair style is not too structured and neat and looks effortless.

    Danai looks great her skin is smooth as silk!
    Tracee needs teeth whitening, the dress is too matronly looking the bun is ok, not a fan of buns sitting on top of the head…I like the ones that sit further to the back of the head

  • imani

    the buns a little over simplified to me, looks like maybe she did it herself. I wouldve liked it to a little bit more elegantly messy and the bun a little fuller. but i love her to pieces so I cant say too much against her. I dont like the dress much bc I’m not of fan of the shirely temple baby doll type dress on any grown woman but if i had to see anyone wearing it, id rather see it on a younger pixey-type woman like tika sumpter,raven symone,zooey deschanel,etc.

  • Lauralei

    The dress is not at all flattering to Tracee. What was she thinking? And the girlish dress topped by the school-marmish mum looks odd.
    Danai is gorgeous and well put together.

  • EG

    I’m not feeling this look either and I usually like the natural make-up look, as wells as buns. But there seems to be a disconnect between her hair and make-up (or maybe lack of)and the fancy dress. I don’t think this is Tracey’s best look.

  • Michelle

    I think both ladies look hot and their hairstyles just intensify their ‘hotness’…sorry I know it’s not proper English :P

  • Orihime11

    Absolutely love Danai’s look. From head to toe it’s like POW! I’m usually a fan of Tracee’s dress/hairstyle choices…but not really agreeing with this one.

  • Kaila P

    Has anyoen realized that Tracee’s right eye has a slant to it , so when you look at the picture one eye seems much bigger than the other. I hope it’s not a health problem

    tracee could have done a better job on that bun her hair is beautiful
    she might need a little baking soda on those teeth
