Cardi B Gets Her Very Own Tom Ford Lipstick Shade

Cardi B winning streak continues

There’s famous, then there’s lipstick-named-after-you famous, and Cardi B is official latter now.

Amidst a packed (and insane) New York Fashion Week, her latest buzzy moment comes by way of Tom Ford Beauty, which just revealed a lipstick shade inspired by the rapper herself.

The beauty brand unveiled the latest Lips & Boys collection backstage at its Spring/Summer 2019 show (where Cardi sat front row). As usual, the lipsticks are named after people—and Tom Ford Beauty announced a cobalt blue shade named “Cardi” on Instagram. It’s fittingly a shade made for risk-takers and bold beauty lovers.

Last year, the Girls lipstick launches paid homage to friends and famous fans of Ford like Carine [Roitfeld], Naomi [Campbell], Dakota [Johnson], Julianne [Moore]. No word just yet on all the new lipsticks coming our way, but the assortment of shades shown include reds, corals, pinks, browns, and “nudes.”

Naomi Campbell Wants To Help Up and Coming Designers

Supermodel Naomi Campbell wants to help up and coming fashion designers showcase their work — without the expenses and exclusivity of fashion week.

via Page Six:

“I want to do a platform because not everyone can go to these big fashion weeks around the world and put money into showing their product,” she said at a Cannes Lions panel Wednesday, mentioning designers she’s seen in Africa. “So there has to be another way … building a platform for the young emerging designers that don’t have a way to show their work, and invite online stores to come in and see, and help them grow.”

Campbell, who organizes Fashion for Relief shows to benefit Save the Children and other charities, added: “What matters in my legacy that I leave is that I’ve done enough for models of color and diversity. That’s what kept me here for so long is that I don’t feel — I haven’t felt — that it’s right … For years [diversity] has been this afterthought and it should just be a thought along with everything else.”

Campbell’s concerned a current wave of diversity in fashion could be fleeting.

“It can’t be a trend,” she said. “It can’t go backwards again. We have to stay and keep going forwards. That’s my worry.”

She recalled a time in her career when she was rejected by French Vogue because they had never put a black woman on the cover. She said she went to Yves Saint Laurent, who threatened to pull ads, and she landed the cover in 1988.

“My life has been a challenge, but I’ve loved that. I’ve used that to drive me,” she said. “I’ve never played a victim to any of this. It gives me energy to say ‘OK, that didn’t happen that way, I’ll find another way.’”

She also tackled pay disparity in an unusual circumstance. “When I did Playboy they said, ‘She can’t get the same money as Cindy Crawford,’” Campbell recalled. “My lawyer said, ‘Why?’ And they said, ‘because Naomi’s t–s are smaller.’ I was like, ‘So what? I’m built differently.’”

GLOW Girl GLOW! Im here for it 💟💟

But this season is looking much better and im loving it! Binx Walton has already opened and closed one Fashion Week’s most coveted shows, Tom Ford, and Selena Forrest and Lineisy Montero have already walked. Check out the sprinkling of #blackgirlmagic down the runway.

Fashion & Style 411 : Not Carrie Bradshaw

20161227_120801

Meet Fashion Storyteller Jessica of NotCarrieBradshaw http://notcarriebradshaw.com/ She’s an 29 years old blogger from Atlanta. Jessica has lived in New York for four years now pursuing a career in fashion. She has always loved fashion, but never thought to pursue it as a career. Jessica had a few spaces in her schedule during senior year of college at Georgia Southern University, so her advisor had her take about three fashion courses. She decided from there that she wanted to pursue a career in fashion, but wasn’t willing to start over with school at the time. Jessica looked for fashion internships in Atlanta to no avail. So she started a rather unsuccessful styling company. She was working two jobs, and trying to establish herself as a stylist, and was failing miserably. Jessica realized that if she was serious about fashion, she would need to move to New York, and further her fashion education. With mom in tow Jessica visited the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and fell in love with the school. Moving there with little to no money. What little Jessica had family and friends gave her, and she slept on her line sister’s couch for a semester. Jessica’s last semester at FIT, she interned at Oscar de la Renta in the merchandising department. After graduating she got the opportunity to work as a freelance fashion writer, and that’s where she found her lane. Working at Burberry, then Coach, but she found much more freedom and fulfillment as a writer, so that’s what she’s been focused on ever since. Through her website she’s been able to write about my experiences living, dating, and working in New York. She also enjoy writing about fashion in a way that makes it easily accessible and less intimidating to people. Im so excited Jessica agreed to be featured here on Eccentric GLOW ,check out her chat below ❤❤❤

20161227_120819

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

NotCarrieBradshaw – can’t recall ever not loving it really. The first time I recall feeling the power of fashion was in kindergarten. My mom took immense pride in the way she dressed my brother and I, so I was always dressed to the 9’s for everything. I wish I could remember the specific outfit I wore to school that day, but whatever it was my teacher was astounded by how impeccably I was dressed. So much so that she sent me down the hallway to the other teacher’s classes so they could see it. It was the first time I saw how differently people respond to you when you are dressed well.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

NotCarrieBradshaw- I don’t know if I have a signature style. I wish I were that committed to one particular look, but alas I am not. I would like to think that I mix the edgy with the classic. I wear heels as often as reasonably possible, and I almost always wear a red lip. I feel the most secure when I am wearing my matte red lipstick.

20161227_120834

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

NotCarrieBradshaw – That’s so hard to say, because designers are often changing their direction. If I had to choose I would say Alexander Vauthier. His clothes are provocative, yet classy, and ultra-feminine with a touch of edge. There’s always this duality of woman at play in his designs. I love that concept, because it shows that we can be multi-dimensional. You can be sexy and classy, you can be smart and fun, etc.

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?


NotCarrieBradshaw – I have been style crushing on Shiona Turini for years, and I love Kahlana Barfield Brown’s style. They both have such a great knowledge of their bodies, and fashion as a whole, and it shows in that they really know what works and doesn’t work for them. Their looks are always polished with just a dash of street flair to them. Perfect balance. I also love Tracee Ellis Ross. Her personality shines through in her style, and that’s really a part of the function of fashion in some way. It allows you to tell a little bit about who you are without saying anything. There’s power in that if you choose to use it.

20161227_120744

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

NotCarrieBradshaw- Very intentionally. I’m not a blogger who relies heavily on labels, or even photos. I lean on my word content more than anything. I think I am a writer before I am a “fashion girl,” and I like to make fashion approachable and easily accessible to my readers, because some people find it so intimidating. For that reason I pick looks that can tell a good story that makes sense. The look has to enable me to give valuable fashion advice to my readers.

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

I am such an 80’s baby, so I still love department stores. I love the original Bloomingdale’s here in New York, the Macy’s at Herald Square (even though it’s a tourist trap) for quality pieces. For trendy items I go to the usual Zara, H&M, and for basics I like Uniqlo. If I have extra cash, I love Ted Baker (on sale of course). I first fell in love with that brand when I worked as a personal shopper in Atlanta, and worked for them after I graduated from FIT. I hate working retail, but I loved learning about all of the extra effort they put into creating these feminine, classic pieces. Intermix is a dope store as well. Their collections are expertly curated in such a way that lets you know they know their customers. Recently I have fallen in love with Rent the Runway for making quality clothing accessible.

The MISeducation of a Fashion Blogger

“Sometimes it seems
We’ll touch that dream
But things come slow or not at all
And the ones on top, won’t make it stop
So convinced that they might fall
Let’s love ourselves then we can’t fail
To make a better situation
Tomorrow, our seeds will grow
All we need is dedication.” – Lauryn Hill

Sitting in a Brooklyn nail salon getting pampered for the upcoming events for Fashion Week in New York (Sept 6 2014) …..and it popped in my head IM HERE , I LIVE HERE. Being a up and coming blogger from Vegas who left it all to move to the concrete jungle….. to live out my DREAMS!

20140829_122007

20140829_121708

Ive ALWAYS loved writing and pictures and when social media took off a million of ladies and gents such as myself found it cool to have an outlet and a audience for our hobby. Ill admit I was shy in the being , I mean I was a shy writer who didn’t like to be in the pictures I took as much as I liked to take them. So I studied blogging… YES I studied blogging. I spent nights on my favorite bloggers fb pages and YouTube getting a feel for this new social media craze. I credit MsVaughn , Fashionbombdaily ,Bambisarmoire , All Things Slim and StylejunkYard for be helpful , uplifting and just down right humble and genuine ladies .

20140222_132318-1
What I didn’t know was a lot of the bloggers thought they where real celebrities. I mean just cause they dress up and have a lot of likes …were they better than me? I was a little taken back im not gonna lie and the hood in me wanted to read some of these Facebook/Instgram personalities for filth but instead I vowed to always be there for the next up and coming blogger and just HELP anyway I could. Mainly because I know to well how it feels to have your message read but never responded to ( thanks FB and IG). That alone can really do something to your mind and you start second guessing it like is this what you really want to do.

In true Tesha fashion I didn’t give up and dived in head first. Consistency is the key to blogging ….they crave that fix. Fast forward to now after 2 years I have close to 15,000 followers , Fashion Editor of Da-sh Magazine and finishing my internship at Vibe Vixen Magazine. All this from Blogging! How did blogging get me here you ask…..

20140602_210459

After blogging and writing it came to me that I wanted to not just blog but write and get paid for it . So I said to myself “im young and free let me move to NY and see what the Big Apple has to offer a Vegas chick.” I made the move June 2013 and never looked back and THANK GOD my sister came for the ride cause I wouldn’t have done it alone. Now my email is filled with event invitations ……but am I happy? Did I make a mistake moving here? Is NY really whats it cracked up to be?

PicsArt_1387528330080

Stay Tuned

But I will say I came , I Saw , I Conquered! I really found myself and learned about what path I really want to take in life …..with that being said I don’t have to live in New York to live the dream …..im Living , Im happy and im doing what I love. Anyone reading this is a dream
