8 Times The Quann Twins Killed The Fashion Game

Cipriana-Quann-Urban-Bush-Babes-220160615_004726

Growing up, I always wished that I had a twin sister because of the infamous television twins: Tia and Tamera Mowry and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Watching those two set twins in the ’90s, I thought it was so cool because they would able to pull pranks on people . Meet fashion duo The Quann Sisters, aka Cipriana and Tk Wonder.

These electric beautiful (and perhaps very stylish) twins have been buzzing all over Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube and most recently, magazine spreads. Their noteworthy style and outspoken personalities are the many reasons why I admire these fashionable twins. Let me not forget to mention their big, luscious hair that matches well with their big, bold fashion choices.

In a interview with Brydie Beauty, Cipriana revealed:

“After years and years of modeling and struggling with my physical image regarding my hair of trying to mold it into someone else’s idea of their “ideal beauty,” I’d just had enough! I wanted to represent the kind of beauty I felt most comfortable with and idolized when I was younger, which was my mother’s image. I was done with masking my identity to represent a false beauty to please the standards of others. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and at the end of the day, I realized the most important beholder was me.”

This is one amazing recited statement that helped me understand and appreciate the sisters more than ever

The Quann Sisters were already quite popular on YouTube when the twins won Vogue’s Best Dressed in 2014 which was the icing on the cake for people’s growing desire for these glamorous ladies. Recently, the stylish duo have signed with IMG Models which starts a new chapter of these hot twins’ stardom. From being featured in Vogue to snagging campaigns with brands like Sunglass Hut, what can these trendy set of twins not do? #GoGirl

Are you TUNED IN???

Ive been smitten lately with these Youtubers and the great content they showcase. Everything From Black Love to Everyday Life is what you can assure youll get when in tune into Yolanda Renee and MsVaughnTV channels. Both ladies are the typical “Girl Next Door” with a dash of “Around the Way Girl” such as myself. But after consideration maybe Vaughn is the “Girl Next Door” and Yolanda is the “Around the Way Girl ” either way i see apart of me in them and i can totally relate to the content. Both channels chronicles the lives of hardworking women with their familes in the everyday world not glitz and glam but raw uncut natural REALNESS…..

MsVaughnTV shares her journey as a Newlywed , Expecting mom , Marketing Maven , and Natural Youtuber with a flare for Bohemian Fashion. I totally can relate to Vaughn on so many levels because i too love bohemian fashion , am a naturalista and soon to Youtuber. We as viewers are attracted to whats quality content in our eyes and whats more your rate as far as similarities. She’s that Chicago chick who speaks her mind but not ratchet very classy and eloquent. I’ve enjoyed following her journey on YouTube and was very please with the Vlog Series “My Life Offline” and now her very own Vlog on her channel titled ” My Real Life”
Are you TUNED IN?

Meet The Becks – Devon , Yolanda , Taylor and Skylar is the YouTube version of The Cosbys. Its like watching a real good family oriented show that you just dont want to stop but you can’t wait to see the next episode. I was so excited to see Black Family Love on YouTube…..Its so inspiring and reassures me of my main goal to wait for love before I start a family. Taylor and Sky sends my ovaries into over drive. Sky is all Devon and Taylor is all Yolanda – One of Each. They show us recipes , natural hair tutorials , family time etc. Taylor loves helping cook and Skylar sings. Devon and Yolanda are raising great respectful young girls. Devon hasnt appeared much on camera but when he does you can feel the love him amd Yolanda share thru the camera. Are you TUNED IN?

Heyyyyy Glowers , welcome back 👋👋👋 Today i premiere my new blog segment Locd & Glowing which is very reminiscent to my Fashion & Style : 411. Instead of fashion talk we talkin dreadlocs. I only try to interview and get the low down on personalities i follow and adore on social media. Cinematographer DBella is setting social media in fire with her luscious locs. Being featured on numerous loc IG pages such as BlkGirlLocs and Loclivin , DBella is easily becoming an inspiration to so many around the world. I had the honor of interviewing DBella and getting the tea on those beautiful dreads. Check it Out below

1. So when’s the first time you knew you wanted locs

DBella: Honestly, I do not know the exact time but I just remember I was so tired looking like everyone else. So one day I just randomly said I am going to loc.

2. What method did you use to start your locs?

DBella: I started with double Twist

3. How long have you been locd

DBella: I am around 7 years locd

4. What are your holy grail hair care items
DBella: I have a natural mixture I use and Cantu oil sheen

5. I see you color your locs , has that damaged your hair?

DBella: Luckily, No.

6. Have you experience any back lash from anyone because of your locs?

DBella: Before growing them I did. From men wanting me to have straight hair. I was told to not to do it because it was going to be extremely ugly. Now I get a little backlash from some Rastas, because I’m not one. Can’t win. So now I don’t pay it any mind.

7. What advice would you give anyone thinking of starting loc?

DBella: I would tell anyone that it is a process. It takes a lot of patience doing it but its so worth it

Screenshot_2016-04-13-17-10-21-1

Beauty and fashion influencers  are gaining thousands of followers by providing the low-down on everything from product reviews and beauty tips to skincare secrets. And women of color are owning their swag and investing in their attractiveness at record rates.

The cosmetic and fashion industries have taken notice and are going mad trying to introduce products and advertising to capitalize on the expendable black beauty dollar. We have more options now than ever before on how to cosmetically enhance our beauty, and I’m here for all of it!

Looking our best not only makes us feel good, but it helps us to deliver our most confident selves to the world. In order to get a grand return on our beauty investment, we must tap into those intangible enhancements that shine from the inside out. In addition to our shea butter, coconut oil and good ol’ Vaseline, here are 6 totally free, absolutely free

1. Confidence
Don’t even think of leaving the house without it

2. Smile
Show them pearly whites

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

Ahh, what a good question!  I don’t think I actually fell in love with fashion until high school.  Before then, most of the schools I attended were uniform schools so they didn’t really allow us, the students, to express ourselves in that way.  I’ve always loved fashion though for as long as I can remember.  But, I don’t think I was able to REALLY fall in love with it until I was actually able to wear and express myself freely on a daily basis. 

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

No, I don’t believe I do.  I feel like style, for me, is ever-changing.  I wouldn’t even want to box myself into one style by even saying I do.  I literally style myself based upon how I’m feeling that day.  One day you may see me and I’m in a formal dress, with 6 inch heels, and the very next day you’ll see me with ripped jeans and sneakers on.  That’s just how different and versatile my style is.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

Currently I’m really feeling Oliver Rousteing, the designer for Balmain, but if we’re being honest, I really don’t believe I have a favorite.  I’m really not a big label person.  I tend to just buy it, if I like it, and honestly as with my style, it changes constantly for me. 

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush? 

Ohh, I absolutely adore BrooklynBlonde’s style!  It’s something about her style selections, that just mesh seamlessly with my mine and what I like.  She’s amaze 🙂

Screenshot_2016-02-14-10-44-44-1Screenshot_2016-02-14-10-44-29-1

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

I first think about where I’m going, then I try to piece together something that will be both appropriate and fab for that place.  Sometimes I have to try things on just to make sure it looks right, and other times I have to change because I’m not feeling some part of the outfit. lol I know I’m not the only one! But, the biggest thing I think to putting looks together is making sure that it showcases your own personal style or flavor.  

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

I literally shop some of everywhere!  A few of my go-to places include Zara, Akira, H&M, and Urban Outfitters.  If we’re talking online, which is where I do a great deal of shopping, my go-to places include NastyGal, Asos, and Forever21.  (I find that Forever21 has a better selection online). 

Question  7 : I personally follow and adore you.  I think its dope how you have Clothes and Fros. How did that start?

You’re sweet!  Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!  ClothesandFros started because I wanted to put something out in the universe to inspire.  Inspire people.  Inspire individuality.  Inspire creativity.  I am a fully natural girl, so I thought it would be a good idea to also include hair in my blog, since it is also one of my passions.  I hope my blog helps people to feel good about who they are and helps to give people the courage to express themselves in any way that they see fit! 🙂
