Naturals making statements at the Oscars 2015 *Updated post*

Although I didn't watch the award show (due to lack of diversity amongst the nominees), here are some of the pictures of my favorite naturalistas on the red carpet.

Lupita Nyong'o 

Viola Davis

Ava Duvernay

Solange Knowles 

And last but not least, the young, talented and beautiful Zendaya Coleman.

Giuliana Rancic made a remake on the tv-show Fashion Police, saying, "I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or maybe weed." An ignorant statement that sparked outrage on social media, especially in the natural hair community.
Although I've been a fan of Rancic, I was completely disgusted by her remake. Questions like, Why must our hair constantly be stereotyped? Why can't our hair be just hair? Why must black women be questioned when we embrace the diversity and beauty of our locs, kinks and curls?

I was very impressed by the way Zendaya handled the situation and responded eloquently. Check out her response below. 

Loved seeing these strong, talented black women on the red carpet.

Love Always,
