Evening Gowns & Afros – NY Times Style Magazine Feature
T Magazine (The New York Times Style Magazine) featured fab ladies who show off their evening gowns with their afros. The article is entitled “Nightie Aphrodites- How To Pull Of A Heartbreakingly Romantic Evening Gown? Just Use Your Head”
It has been said that “Natural hair isn’t professional”, it’s not this, it’s not that…”What are you going to do for your wedding?” “What are you going to do for an formal event?” This pictorial shows that natural hair and afros can be romantic…it doesn’t have to be straight to be appealing.
This article featured Solange, Juno Temple, Esperanza Spalding, Corrine Bailey Rae, and Les Nubians in couture gowns worth from $4,000 to over $15,000.
Who said a fro can’t be romantic and classy? I love the looks.
