Tiny & Zonnique Rock The Red Carpet!

 Screen shot 2017-05-24 at 9.35.36 AM

Last night, WE tv hosted a star-studded Atlanta premiere of its new series, “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.” Hundreds convened at Woodruff Arts Center to preview the much-buzzed-about ATL edition of the hit franchise, which stars Bow Wow, Shaniah Mauldin (daughter of Jermaine Dupri), Reginae Carter (daughter of Lil Wayne and Toya Wright), Zonnique Pullins (daughter of T.I. & Tiny), Brandon Barnes (son of Debra Antney and brother to Waka Flocka) and Ayana Fite (daughter of DJ Hurricane).

One of our fave shots from the event: this pretty pose by mother/daughter duo Tiny and Zonique! Tiny rocks perfect plaits kissed in a rich auburn while Zonnique slays in a pastel-tinted lob (long bob) detailed with sideswept bangs. Looking gorgeous ladies!

THE MEME THAT STARTED A MOVIE?
May 23, 2017

Guess Which Celebs Are Set To Star…

 

It’s a crowd-sourced story concept born on social media—and it all began with a photo of music superstar Rihanna sitting front row at the 2014 Miu Miu show next to Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. Honing in on the image of Rihanna and Lupita, fans on Twitter crafted a meme calling out how the pair look like they could be co-stars in a film about a mastermind scammer (Rihanna) and her genius computer hacking accomplice (Lupita). Fans even suggested a director and writer for the fantasy project: acclaimed director Ava DuVernay and Insecure writer/star Issa Rae. So, of course, the whole thing went viral.

Now here’s what happened IRL…Rihanna and Lupita Tweeted they were both down for the project and soon Duvernay and Rae also pledged their support. And, after intense negotiations at the Cannes Film Festival, Entertainment Weekly reports that Netflix is on board with the project. Word is Rae is working on the script with a possible production start in 2018 once director DuVernay finishes her current film project.

Teen Star Yara Shahidi Get Her Own Show!

 

Looks like “Zoey Johnson” is leaving the Black-ish family nest! Actress Yara Shahidi, who portrays the eldest daughter on the hit ABC-TV show, is getting her own half-hour comedy gig on Freeform. College-ish (the current working title for the project), follows “Zoey” as she heads off to college and will give fans a contemporary take on current issues for both students and higher education administrators. Congrats Yara!

A NATURAL STYLE CHAMELEON
May 20, 2017

Actress Demetria McKinney’s Style Switches

a natural style chameleon

Actress and singer Demetria McKinney loves to keep busy. From juggling TV roles playing wildly opposite characters (think The Quad and Saints & Sinners) to releasing new music, Demetria applies that same energy to her Natural hairstyles! Whether wearing her curls free and full or nurturing her spirals under a protective style (like the Faux Loc look she wears here), Demetria’s coif choices are varied and many. “My hair has become my biggest statement piece,” she shared with SBH. For more from our style convo with the star, check out the June 2017 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now.
