Why I Love Diana Ross, The Style Icon
I must say, Black History month of 2017 will go down in the books as one of the greatest. I enjoyed every minute of it. This month is pretty special too, it's International Women's Month! I get to celebrate thirty-one more days of being me, a black woman. It's lit!
Seeing that today is International Women's Day, we wanted this post to be extra special. Rachael and I thought very long and hard on how La Rachelle can celebrate this day too. As a team, we decided to dedicate this post to my fairy godmother Diana Ross.
I remember the first time I heard Diana Ross as a child and I instantly fell in love. Listening to her albums became a bonding experience for my mother and I. Since then, I've been dancing (your girl can get down [laughs]) and singing along to all my favorite songs by her.
Diana is the definition of a true fashionista. I must admit, that from time to time, I've definitely stolen a look or two from her. Her style is timeless and fabulous. I've even had dreams that I was a fly on the wall in her closet. I later wake up to mine, longing for the day my closet will completely live up to hers [laughs].
Rachael and I decided to channel our inner Diana Ross for this shoot. We brought out the fur, the sequins, the big curly hair and her go-to, the classic bun.
