Say What?! New Nivea ad: Racist?


The internet is ablaze this morning over the new Nivea total body products ad. The re-civilize ad states “Look Like You Give A Damn”, showcasing a groomed African American male grasping a beheaded African American man with a full fro and facial hair. WOW.

I can see what they were trying to acheive BUT…yeah…simply ill-executed.

Here’s the full article:

Fashion+Style: MET Gala 2011

Fashion+Style: MET Gala 2011

Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala 2011

Featuring “Savage Beauty: Alexander McQueen

As many of us know, this years Metropolitan Gala paid tribute to the late designer impresario Alexander McQueen. As usual, the event is a sartorialist’s dream with fashion heavies and celebrities coming out in the season’s haute couture and custom gowns and tuxedos to turn the heads of their peers and the paparazzi.

We’ll showcase some of our favorites from the night and ask you who do you think was the best or worst dressed male and female.

Events: Rihanna lends star power for UNICEF Tap Project


On the cusp of her many magazine covers, new endorsement deals and her 10th number one single, Rihanna is doing more than just laughing all the way to the bank with her Star Power. Little Miss Sunshine just partnered with UNICEF for its Tap Project, educating and engaging consumers about the lack of access to safe, clean drinking water for nearly 900 million people worldwide.

 Other celebrities appearing in the public service campaign include Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Adrian Grenier, Dwight Howard and Robin Williams. Each star will bottle tap water from their homes for a sweepstakes where entrants can win a limited edition “Celebrity Tap Pack,” a custom-designed case that includes the special celebrity bottles and helps to raise money for UNICEF’s sanitation and clean water programs.

I held off posting this until i could find the other celebrity campaign shots but I’ve not been able to find them so here it is.

KRAVE Her: Rihanna covers American Vogue


 

Rihanna for Vogue, Annie Leibovitz

 

It just doesn’t get much better than this.  Amongst only a handful of women of color, Rihanna graces the 10th Annual Shape issue, shot by one of my favorite photographers, Annie Leibovitz (Beyonce Knowles graced the shape issue as well…what are they trying to say?).  Either way this is huge for the R&B/Pop star.

Kudos to Rihanna!

KRAVEHer: Rihanna at the EMA’s in Halfpenny London x Moross


Rihanna @ EMA's, RihannaDaily.com

What can I say? I absolutely love it!

 
Rihanna rocks this Halfpenny London dress with painted Moross flowers, paired with biker boots and a blinged out tiara? That’s what we call bold but it works for the Barbadian beauty!
