2016 has been a tough one filled with tragedy for Toya Wright after the death of her two brothers to senseless violence and her grandmother’s battle with cancer coming to a close.
However, the reality TV star has remained admirably resilient through it all, penning a new book about her life and continuing her business savvy brand. And before the year came to a close she decided to slay one last time, posing for a new spread in Cosmopolitan Nigeria. Captured by DeWayne Rogers, the NY Times best-selling author rocked two stylish ‘fits: one a sequined mini dress from Brooklyn-based Versailles Boutique complete with a plunging neckline that’s giving us serious holiday cheer and a sultry yet chic CHONG CHA silk dress featured lace and leather detailing.
Accompanying the spread is a small editorial, detailing her transition from teenage mom to entrepreneur. In particular, Wright spoke at length about her luxury bonnet line, Before Bed Headz, which she reveals was inspired by “wanting women to feel beautiful when they go to bed.”
So many men complain about women wearing bonnets to bed and not looking sexy and I wanted to make something blinged out, that looks good. Plus, a black woman’s hair is extremely fragile and requires a little more love. Pillowcases tend to suck all of the good moisture out of our hair leaving it dry and brittle, while satin bonnets like Before Bed Headz leaves in the moisture we need.
