Style of the Week: Ashley Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

( I really don’t have enough Women of Colour as style icons on my blog - that will change)

I wish I could find more photos to show how in love I was with her style! This character was all about the cropped turtlenecks and pleated & plaid skirts paired with knee highs whilst always preserving a sense of sophistication, I loved it!


Honestly one of the most stylish moments in White House history..

First Lady of the Ivory Coast, Marie-Thérèse Houphouët-Boigny and First Lady Jackie Kennedy in May 1962. Houphouët-Boigny caught the eye of the media during this visit to the Kennedy White House, and was dubbed “Africa’s Jackie”

A Happy Birthday to the man and the legend, Mr. Jimi Hendrix.
