Venus and Serena Get the Gold Naturally, Well Almost

It's no surprise Venus and Serena Williams took home gold medals in women's doubles for the second time in a row. It's no surprise they looked fabulous in their red and white tennis outfit. It's no surprise they fit in a shopping trip. What was surprising was their hair. Venus' tendrils were beautifully natural. She wore one giant Afro puff during the competition and it was pulled back in a band when she accepted the gold. I believe Serena sported a bob weave, but I have to priase the more flamboyant Williams sister for no hair theatrics. That meant no waist-length micro braids or neon colors. I'm loving it. The Williams sisters playing and winning in all their natural glory. Now, there is a beautiful role model for little girls to follow. What do you think?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
