Dear Black Beauty, I have a message for you…

You might as well be sleeping under a rock if you haven’t heard of Lupita Nyong’o. The recent  Oscar winner has clearly made a name for herself not just because of her talent but also because of her undeniable grace, style, and beauty. I have been a fan of Ms. Nyong’o since I first came across here work, but as a  educated woman of color with a background in fashion and media I must say I tip my hat to this woman for addressing an issue that is still very real….the image of “beauty” The below video is from her speech at the Essence  Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon . I invite you to watch it and be moved…I was….and will continue to be.

With Love from Me to Hue!

In mid-January we started a new featured called Hue & Me Mondays. The first feature when to the the always stylish Lupita Nyong’o. Well I recently was given the opportunity to partner with POPSUGAR and their launch of POPSUGAR forums a platform that allows style bloggers to discuss various style topics and of course I picked Ms.Nyong’o. So if you are like me and love the style of Lupita join me me in the discussion.  Just simply click the#POPSUGARForums  logo below. I look forward to chatting with you.

 

Hue & Me Mondays

Howdy! The New Year always brings new changes and new things to explore. One of new things that I’m adding to A Stylish Hue is a new feature called Hue & Me Mondays. The mission of A Stylish Hue is to celebrate healthy unique diverse images empowering images of hue A Stylish Hue is a publication for ethnic women of color with a global mind set. Our aim is to do so by celebrating hue (you) your life and style. I have been thinking about how I wanted to start this new feature and it hit me last night like a lighting bolt last night when the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o walked down the red carpet at the Golden Globes.

I could write a long post about her beauty, the gown, her talent…etc, but the goal of Hue & Me Mondays is simple. Showcase the  unique diverse images of women in all walks of life. I think you will understand why I picked Lupita as our first post after viewing her video below.

With Love from ME to HUE,

Sophia
