One thing I must mention is that I place women on the list based on the way they carry themselves in public, the way they dress, and some of their film/television roles (look out for my future post about YouTube natural hair and make-up EBWs). They are not perfect and may have been involved in scandals I don't know about and this may just be their public persona (we all have our public and private personas). But we must recognize that celebrities live in a different world from the rest of us and please keep these things in mind:
- For instance, appearing in risque photos can get us fired and shunned by the people we know but this can build a celebrity career. Many women on my list have posed in men's magazines and nude on screen but of course I would not recommend that for an EBW.
- Also, in celebrity circles there may be excessive alcohol and drug use that is not healthy or becoming of an EBW.
- Celebrity photos are airbrushed and digitally altered to make them look better than the rest of us and even themselves and they wear camera-ready make-up that is too heavy for everyday wear.
- Last but not least, celebrities are held to a higher if not impossible standard of beauty so they may use harmful weight loss methods, keep an unhealthy weight, and use cosmetic procedures to enhance their looks.
|Lynn Whitfield is famous for her role|
playing Josephine Baker in the film
The Josephine Baker Story and
Eve's Bayou. In her other film roles
she tends to play a classy, well-dressed,
poised lady who often has dark secrets.
|Tatyana Ali was loved for her role as Ashley on The|
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. You can watch her on her
current show Love That Girl! (I don't know if it's a
good show). Tatyana always appears sweet and
smiling like a "nice girl".
Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a darling and
adorable actress who starred on
Undercovers and is currently starring
on Touch. She often dresses in the
cutesy-pie style I love :)
|Freema Agyeman is a UK actress who has starred|
on Dr. Who (maybe I will watch it) and Law and
Order UK (just started watching). On Law and
Order UK she appears professional,
intelligent, and classy. I hope to see more of her.
|Megalyn Echikunwoke is just|
gorgeous! She is actually
descended from Nigerian Igbo royalty.
I loved her on the 4400 (great show)
and she appeared as President
Palmer's daughter on 24. She is
currently starring on the show
House of Lies.
