    I like the idea of the shoot,I just wish the realisation was a little more glamorous…For some reason,the minimalist background doesn’t do it for me.I wish there was more diomonds and pearls and that the dresses were more delicate and femininine/etheral.But the magazine is definitely going in the right direction.It’s good to see that natural hair can be diversified.

    I love that the people in the photos have natural hair and wearing beautiful gowns. It shows that natural haired woman too have that sophisticated classy look. I have natural hair and I find it fustrating that people tell me I have to change my style because it does not go with the whole “sophisticated and classy look” I am not into the bohemic or afrocentric style and I don’t believe that my hair should catagorize me into: bohemic, geek chic, afrocentric, and ect. styles my hair does not define me so it should not define my style.

    First off, hats off to the photographer. The images are stunning. You can’t help but to be drawn to each photo, the models look haunting. Even with such minimalist background and styling (as far as accessories)…the ladies steal the show. I believe natural hair and glamor can go hand in hand—glad to see I am not the only one who thinks so.
