Halloween Inspo: Hilary Banks

A carefree black girl. Hilary Banks was a beautiful, rich, fabulous, slutty, successful socialite. An underrated sex positive feminist icon. Sure she was superficial, but nobody loved Hilary more than Hilary meaning she never settled. She didn’t validate herself through men, making them earn it. To embody Ms. Banks played by Karyn Parsons you must have the following: a bowler hat, a standout blazer donned with a brooch or flower for extra points, signature curls, a skirt and a purse. A 90’s queen, that decade was just a vibe. Which Hilary would you base your look on? Via: Fresh Prince Forever

Choose A Black Female Lead

Thank you MeFeater for shining a light on black actresses who have been woven into the cultural tapestry. Low key I’m a mix of all of them, but I think I would have to pick two characters here. The first would be Olivia Pope, I’m an intelligent, wine guzzling, strategist. However my life isn’t as mirthless as Pope’s, my second leading lady for accurate representation of my being is….damn this is actually hard…Whitley, or Issa…maybe Elektra. I just can’t decide. Which one are you? Via: MeFeater
