Keshia Knight Pulliam

SBH offers you a behind-the-scenes look at the on-set happenings during our celebrity photo shoots. Meet your backstage celebrity guides…


You might remember Keshia Knight Pulliam from her days as the adorable Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Today this gorgeous actress graces the TBS sitcom House of Payne and the Tyler Perry feature film Madea Goes To Jail. Here, the actress strikes a pose with SBH to show off her fabulous style…

Our SBH photo shoot took place in Atlanta, GA, where Keshia lives. “My family is in Atlanta and this is home for me,” says the actress. The day of the shoot Keshia and the crew got to down to business, breaking briefly for some snacks. “We had some Cheetos and really good little wrap turkey sandwiches and salads.”

Keshia’s personal hair pro Indra Tobias applies the finishing touches to the star’s partial upsweep. “My hair was swept all the way to one side and pinned up. It created a cascading curl effect down one side. I could see myself wearing it somewhere that’s a little dressier.”

Keshia’s fave outfit on the SBH photo shoot was this gorgeous red dress! “My girlfriend owns a clothing store, Tracy Nicole Boutique, where the red dress is from!” We love how happy Keshia looks. Of course, the fact that she’s reading a copy of SBH must have contributed to Keshia’s big smile!

“I think it’s really important [to find a good beauty team] because they know your likes and dislikes,” says Keshia, shown here with hairstylist Indra Tobias, makeup artist Jason McGlothin and clothing stylist Ms. Stylistik. “It makes it easy because they know exactly what it is you want to see before you even have to say anything.”
