Style for a good cause—that’s what the 6th Annual Dangerous Curves Ahead Charity Fashion Show & Expo was all about. Held last Friday at Ignite Glass Studios in Chicago and spearheaded by celebrity fashion stylist, author and clothing boutique owner Tamika Maria Price, the gala attracted media and a very trendy crowd to witness an exciting runway show featuring curvy models of all sizes–plus a dramatic “mom makeover.” Beyond all the the beauty, a portion of the event’s proceeds benefitted the A-line Foundation, an organization which provides makeovers and supportive services for moms in need. Sophisticate’s Black Hair was the official media sponsor of this fierce and fashionable event. Here, we feature just some of our fave photos…
