Cor­rine Bai­ley rae is beau­ti­ful

Noth­ing like wear­ing your hair in the tex­ture it grows from your scalp and being proud of it. Solange always does that. She always looks con­fi­dent and that’s great! Not for­get­ting, her style choic­es look great on her body.
I love Kim­ber­ly Elise with her nat­ur­al hair. I love the head­band with her dress! They match per­fect­ly!

Cece Danielle

I liked Solange’s look on her. I LOVED Chrisette’s look the most, so sassy! The dress was gor­geous and the tatts real­ly made her look pop!

JustMo

Solange’s dress is very Diana Ross in my opin­ion. It is absolute­ly fab­u­lous! I agree with you all on her con­fi­dence. I wish I could embrace my hair like that. Oth­ers say they like it but some­times I feel like I want to stick some crack back in it. I’m clue­less…

shelikes

kim­ber­ly elise is pret­ty. not feel­ing solange’s lip­stick col­or. i dont think she has enough col­or in her skin to make that mel­on col­or look right. i love her hair, but not on her. it makes the shape of her face appear very mas­cu­line. i love how she dont care though. the oth­ers should have asked not to have their pic­tures tak­en.

Jacky

They all look gor­geous and i love Kim­ber­ly Elise’s fro

Nature Girl

Hon­ey,

Solange can catch a fish with­out a hook! You bet­ta werk that fro!

TWA4now

Ms. Solange nailed it! Nice!

Dem girls are werkin it! I love that they are embrac­ing their nat­ur­al tex­tures and giv­ing main­stream style mavens a run for their mon­ey. It’s excit­ing to see which new celeb will ditch the straight look or weave and show­case their nat­ur­al hair tex­ture…

Deb

Gor­geous! Kim­ber­ly Elise’s hair is gor­geous and goes so well with her out­fit. Remem­ber when peo­ple ALWAYS used to straight­en their hair nat­ur­al hair for spe­cial events? 

Also, I wish it was pos­si­ble for Solange to teach me how to be confident…she looks love­ly and is work­ing it. Peo­ple talk such crap about her hair and style (not on here but on non-hair cen­tered black web­sites espe­cial­ly) and who knows what she faces in real life but the girl always has her head high and works her unique style.

Sharon J

I agree. Solange is so con­fi­dent, giv­en some of the abuse she takes from posters on sites oth­er than this one. It’s almost an act of brav­ery to be your nat­ur­al self in this soci­ety.

Zanjabil

All of them gor­geous nat­ur­al hair! Don’t care for the clothes yet unclothed sheer look.

Tisha

I like that fros are slow­ly tak­ing over the red carpet…or at least appear­ing in social events!!

nappy headed black girl

Solange’s look is my fave. Love the col­or on her and the fro is on point. She’s been every­where late­ly.

Not feel­ing Andy or Chrisette’s out­fits at all.

Dananana

Agreed. Andy’s hair looks great, but that top with those slacks make her look like a chef…

Alisa

I loved Kim­ber­ly Elise’s look the best! I hat­ed Solange’s make­up though, the sec­ond pic­ture makes her look like a man, IMO. And her dress is too sheer.

jungfrau1010

All the ladies are look­ing great and they are rock­ing their hair to reflect their own unique style. Hard for me to pick a favorite look.

Ev`Yan

Is that a stain on the front of Solange’s dress? I can’t tell.

Noire Reine

Such hate…keep it to your­self!!!!

Deb

WTH? how is she hat­ing? She prob­a­bly was just won­der­ing.…

T.

I think it’s just the way the shad­ows fall on the fab­ric; I didn’t notice it in oth­er pho­tos tak­en from oth­er angles.
