Fashion Watch: The man behind Cicely Tyson’s dress

Right from the start, B Michael was fated to be a fashion designer. Growing up in Durham, Connecticut, he found early inspirations in his mother, whose family extends back four generations. Her creativity and keen sense of style passed on to her son, and like his eclectic family tree, B Michael incorporates the fantastic with understated cool, sensational color with elegance and emotion. His designs have been featured editorially on Halle Berry and Cate Blanchett and this year at the 2013 Tony Awards, Cicely Tyson was wrapped in a royal blue ruffled gown by B Michael. Sisters Venus and Serena Williams have been spotted sitting front-row at his runway shows wearing B Michael clothes. But B Michael is not just a nine to five o’clock designer.

Sisters under attack: Serena gets mocked, Black woman gets fired over her hair

by Davey D Not a good week for sisters… First we have Rolling Stone Magazine releasing their much ballyhooed 50 Greatest Hip Hop Songs of all times. They assembled a panel of 33 artists taste makers, label executives, etc. As they scoured through over 30 years of recorded material, Rolling Stone and their panel could only come up with 3 female artists who put out songs worthy of being on their Top 50 list Missy Elliott who was 38, Lauryn Hill (45), Salt-n-Pepa (46)…So sisters were told don’t trip after all, who cares about a damn rap chart? There are bigger fish to fry. SHARING A LAUGH OFF THE COURT–Left to right: Victoria Azarenka, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams. (AP)
