These older models are snatching wigs all over the place! Earlier I shared with you images of the gorgeous Iman in Scene magazine. Then today, I stumble on the April cover of Shape Magazine with none other than the amazing 43 year old Naomi Campbell. She’s looking amazing in a black Moschino swimsuit. She looks as flawless as she did when she first started modeling 30 years ago. In this issue, she chats about her struggles, success, and slim-body secrets.
On dealing with racism in the modeling industry: “I learned if you don’t accept no for an answer, you often get a yes.”
On her diet:“I don’t believe in starving myself. I’ve never done it, and I never will. I’m even more active when I’m juicing, doing both yoga and Pilates every day.”
On quitting smoking:“People told me that cigarettes are harder to quit than alcohol. I didn’t believe it, but you know what? It is harder.” (more…)
Naomi Campbell sure knows how to pick ’em…billionaires that is. Naomi and Nigerian billionaire Kola Aluko were first linked together back in October 2013 when they were photographed shopping in Paris. But everyone knows it’s just a rumour until Page Six reports it:
Naomi Campbell may have been spotted in Kenya with her ex- boyfriend, Formula One mogul Flavio Briatore, but the supermodel is still casually seeing Nigerian oil mogul Kola Aluko.
Campbell and Aluko were first linked together back in October, when the two were photographed shopping in Paris. But the pair reunited in London last week, when Campbell and Aluko were spotted taking in the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. A source insists the two are just friends, saying, “They have a close friendship and maintain that friendship.” (more…)
Ladies, please take a look at the picture of Ciara above. That is how NOT to wear a lace front wig. Let me start by explaining what inspired this post. Quite frankly I’m scared. Scared for my Kenyan sisters who are notorious for copying trends without researching the trend. I went to my hairdresser this past weekend. She had on what she thought was a lace front. It looked like 10 dead racoons piled on top of her head. This same atrocious looking lady, tried to convince me to get my hair done just like hers. In her defence, she’s really good at what she does. So I chose to assume that she was not responsible for the mess on her head. I politely declined her offer and insisted on sticking to my same old comfortable style, which looks amazing if I may say so myself.
As with most things, it’s better to start with definitions. Simply put, lace front wigs are full wigs with mesh lace attached in front and beyond the “hair line” of the wig, which is custom fitted, trimmed, and temporarily glued to ones skin around the hairline. You can’t see where the lace starts or ends. The mesh lace also provides for natural looking partings in the hair. The difference between a full lace wig and a lace front wig is that full lace wigs can be parted anywhere throughout the wig, while lace front wigs can only be parted in a limited portion of the front.

It seems I’m giving you guys quite a bit of nudity lately 🙂 Naomi Campbell once said “I don’t read the papers…I sell papers.” She’s featured on the cover of the first 2011 issue of British GQ nude, floating in a pool. The last of the supermodels, famous for her cell phone hurling tantrums, is looking absolutely gorgeous in a short hair cut
which we all know is a wig. I don’t care what anyone says, she is still as stunning as ever. The issue will be on news stands on February 3rd and in it, Naomi Campbell talks blood diamonds, life lessons and why she’s not as scary as you might imagine.
Naomi also takes a crack at being a reporter and interviews Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin for the magazine.
Naomi Campbell: You’re in pretty good physical shape. How do you manage to keep yourself so fit?
Vladimir Putin: Probably the same way you do. (more…)
Ladies please make sure you grab your copy of Essence Mag’s October issue. On the cover they have Blair Underwood, Boris Kodjoe and Lance Gross. These 3 dashing men will be speaking about their love for black women. I think Essence is trying to make up for the time when they featured Reggie Bush in their “Black Men, Love and Relationships” issue (he was dating a non-black woman, Kim Kardashian at the time). I think it’s time for men to stop justifying who they are in love with. I could care less who you’re sleeping with. I just want to see you with your shirt off 🙂
Gentlemen, you’re not forgotten here. Check out the September 40th Anniversary cover and see if Iman, Naomi Campbell and Liya Kebede do anything for you. (more…)
Wololo! Wololo! Naomi yawa! Kenyan women please take note! Lace front extensions can do this to your hairline. I know we are all excited about lace fronts. However, I have refrained from letting someone put one on me for the simple fact that I am not sure about their qualifications. Please check that the person has gone to school somewhere and has learned the PROPER procedure for “installing” a lace front. Otherwise, you may end up looking like you were in a fight with a woman who tore out clumps of your hair. More details and pics after the break. (more…)
I’m back after taking a holiday of sorts. Kisumu is a great town! Now to the matter at hand: Naomi Campbell unveiled the leather case on Tuesday along with the replica World Cup which is given to winners. Luxury handbag and luggage maker, Louis Vuitton, has designed and crafted the trophy case for the cup. Naomi installed the trophy in the luxury case, handing it with gloves as tradition requires only winners of the cup may touch it. She still looks amazing in spite of her age! More pics of Naomi with the case after the break. (more…)
