Beauty in Many Forms

Some women I have come to crush on. Hard.

Tracee Ellis Ross is the epitome of a woman comfortable in her own skin. She’s taught me to embrace my hair, my breasts and to be completely comfortable with what I bring to the table. I’m a big fan of Girlfriends, and her quirky personality continues to shine through in the form of her blog. In my head, we are friends.

Besides being my older sister, Sanaa Lathan is such a classy woman. I’ve loved her in all the roles she’s played in (especially Love & Basketball, one of my favorite rewatchable movies) and to me, she’s still very underrated.

Tamia also falls under the category of underrated. She seems like a diva who put her family before her career, and has been happily married to Grant Hill for many  years. Watching one of her latest videos, Beautiful Surprise, makes me think “I want that body after kids!”

??????????????????

Jada is a woman who juggles parenting, fame and her career well. I love her acting, I love to hear her passion against human trafficking and I especially love to hear her speak Spanish!jill_scott_essence_oct_2012a

Jilly from Philly is an inspiration on so many levels! She’s a poet, a mother, a singer, a writer and her music is always filled with so much raw emotion. Her music always meets me at my point of need! Here’s one of my favorite songs: I am here.

Lisa Bonet is effortlessly beautiful. That’s all.
Sade

Sade’s music makes me feel beautiful, sensual and worth more than gold.

Frida-21

I loved her in Slumdog Millionaire. Freida Selena Pinto, has a humble aura about her. I want to see her in more movies.

Lianne La Havas. The buttery voice, the cocoa butter skin tone. Can’t get enough.

Who makes your Top 3 list of most beautiful women, most importantly, why?!

  1. I enjoyed this very much and I can most definitely see why you choose this lovely ladies. They all envoke something you see or want to see inside yourself. I don’t have a top 3 as of right now. But I will think on it.

  2. Well, right now my three would be, poet Suheir Hammad, AK and Actress Ella Thomas.

    Suheir is brilliant. She speaks so powerfully about really important issues. And, she’s stunning.

    AK is AK. Lol.

    Ella Thomas is a really good actress who unfortunately doesn’t get many roles and few challenging ones. She’s amazingly beautiful.
