Black Beauty and Style in the British Media – October/November 2012: Leading Ladies, Cooking Connoisseurs and Brit Fashionistas!

It has been a jam packed few weeks and I have slipped behind on my regular update on Black beauty and Style that is featured in the mainstream media.

I was so busy that I missed documenting the month of September…but here is the low down for the months of October and November!

Leading Ladies!

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few weeks, it has been hard to escape the fact that the latest addition to the Bond franchise was released and that our very own British born, Naomie Harris plays Bond’s leading lady!

Naomie graced many a magazine cover – both here in the UK and internationally (so please do permit me to feature a couple of images from across the channel and across the pond…well Naomie is British!!!)

Sophie Okonedo for Pyschologies magazine

Although she is not currently starring in a major blockbuster movie, it was wonderful to to see Sophie on the cover of the latest issue of Psychologies – another Brit beauty and a talented actress!

Cooking Connoisseur

In my opinion, celebrity chef Lorraine Pascale’s smile is like dynamite! It is bound to light up any room that she enters! She was featured in a number of publications recently.

Brit Fashionista

Fellow Brit blogger AJ Watson of My African Closet (which was shortlisted in this year’s Cosmo Blog Awards) was also featured in yesterdays Sunday Times Style magazine!

AJ is also the owner of the online clothing store CJAJ09.com…and she will be making a dress for me for the upcoming Black Beauty and Hair/Sensationnel Awards which is taking place this week!! A true fashionista!
