Ok, so in case you haven’t noticed, we’re a little bit obsessed with June Ambrose. The celebrity stylist and social media superstar is one of our favorite people because of her constant positivity and her endless flow of enviable looks, 1o of which we’ve compiled here for some afternoon happiness.
Just perusing through June’s Instagram–and with more than eight thousand photos, she’s a pretty prolific ‘grammer–can turn your frown upside down in a matter of minutes. That’s why this gloomy Tuesday we decided to add a little June to our spring, and look back at some of the stylist’s best fashion moments to cheer us up.
Aside from styling and creating custom items of clothing for famous faces like Jay Z*–she’s worked with him for 17 years and did his first music video–Mariah Carey, Will Smith, and Ciara, it seems like June is popping up all over the place promoting her fashion knowledge, from TV appearances, to awards shows, to events–she most recently made an appearance at Howard University in DC (see below) as part of the Harlem Fashion Row Conversations With… series presented by McCafe.

Many celebrities have rocked cornrows at some point in their careers; some for years and others for days. Although some of these stars may have looked good in their braided ‘dos, we were generally happy to see the hairstyle go. With that, the purpose of this list is not to say that all fifteen of these celebrities looked bad with cornrows (although some definitely did); it’s just that, in our opinion, they look better without them. Agree?
Admittedly, Lloyd wasn’t bad looking with his cornrows; they even complemented his persona back when he was singing songs like “Southside” and “Get It Shawty.” But now that he’s grown up a bit in the industry and is singing songs like “Lay It Down” and “Dedication To My Ex,” it’s definitely more appropriate that his image be cornrow-free.
While the jury is still out on whether or not actress Zoe Saldana is a suitable fit to play the role as legendary singer Nina Simone in the biopic Nina, we can certainly swing the gavel and call to order that this talented Jersey girl gets glam like the best of them. Although she has been found guilty of a few red carpet mishaps—like the unpopular purple poofy Givenchy number she wore to the 2010 Oscars—she continues to hit the red carpet fashionably poised while serving up incredibly fierce looks. And just as we love to see her vamp it up and get glamorous—from show-stopping gowns to sassy sequin shifts, we adore catching glimpses of the fresh face beauty and her casual chic style when off-duty. With the Emmys just a week away, (providing she attends) we can’t wait to see what this Dominican-Puerto Rican beauty will be delivering up on the red carpet. In the meantime, let’s get into a few of our favorite looks from the stylish, Zoe Saldana.
The stars of Black Hollywood were aligned last night in Los Angeles at the 2012 BET Awards. With Samuel L. Jackson at the helm, the best in the business got to party on one of music’s biggest nights. Kanye West took the stage, D’Angelo returned sounding better than ever, and Cissy Houston delivered an emotional gospel tribute to her fallen star, Whitney Houston. Glam gowns like Bey‘s and Mariah‘s seemed to be the look of the night, but La La Anthony and Monica rocked out in pants just as lovely.
Not only was the show one of the most enjoyable nights in BET Awards history, it was also one of the most stylish.
