The best of 2011 award goes to...

Happy New Years to all of you, I plan on going to see fireworks or going to a party in central London and spending time with my family. Hope 2011 was everything you wanted + 2012 will be bigger + better. So here is some sparkle* to see you into the New Year. I got a great idea from  *natural belle* to list my black women+ men/ natural hair inspirations of 2011. 
 SOLANGE: Singer + DJ + fashion icon Solange is my number one fashionista. Since her big chop over a year ago her style has transformed from strength to strength as she has taken more risks, experimenting with colours + textures. She is effortlessly fabulous and she is a great example of how to mix + match old and new pieces as well as mixing high street + designer items.

SHALA MONROQUE: She is an editor + art consultant and great at
experimenting with different styles and wearing vivid colours. I think of her as an old soul, 1920's era.

ZOE KRAVITZ: The progeny of Lenny Kravitz + Lisa Bonet, Zoe's bohemian meets rocker style
is an eccentric hybrid of fashion that blends adventurous with hippie.
KANYE WEST: He has great jackets + shoes. It's Kanye there's nothing more to say.

PHARELL WILLIAMS: A fashion icon because he makes fashion look so fun. 
Voted as Esquire's best dressed man in 2005, Pharell's creativity in music + fashion is what makes 
his brand a success. Oh and he's sexy.
 AJAK DENG: In my opinion she is the most beautiful black model out there at the moment. With her hairstyle + long legs, Ajak is a designers dream.
She has walked for Lanvin, Givenchy, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, JPG + has featured in magazines like Vogue + V.  (her sister Atuai Deng is also making waves - "sisters are doing it for themselves")
THIAGO SANTOS: The man is gorgeous + his hair is equally amazing. He's an up and coming model so I have a feeling we will be seeing more of him in 2012. 
 ELLE VARNER: She's got a beautiful smile + great voice. Her hair adds to her bubbly personality + I look forward to seeing what she does in 2012.

CORINNE BAILEY RAE: Talented singer + everything from her curls to beauty is breathtaking She took a break from the music scene for a while after the death of her husband, she then came back with her 2010 album 'The Sea' + 2011's 'The Love E.P'.
