Blast from the Past!

Ok weak title…What you want me to do? I’m sorry!

Anyway, so I was eliminated from MSU Next Top Model 😦 In the words of Lupe “Didn’t really make me sad, I’m used to being a loser” …LOL just kidding 🙂

…BUT  I got to do a cool vintage inspired shoot before I got the boot 🙂 I got to portray Dorothy Dandridge! So if you don’t know about her, you probably have NO CULTURE. Ok that was harsh…but seriously, if you don’t know about her, read up people!

She was one of the first African American actress/singers in America! So in many ways she paved the way for many actresses and singers today! She was a BEAUTY too 🙂 Ms. Dandridge started her career when she was a child, doing shows with her older sister. She eventually made her own career by singing in night clubs and such. Mrs. Dandridge later began doing movies; most popular (to me) for her role in Carmen…check it out

So…all that to say this….I got to dress up like her! Here are some pics from the shoot 🙂 By the way…I put together my own outfit, based off pictures I found of her on google.com
