Throwback Thursday Tribute

Throwback Thursday Tribute

Celebrating Throwback Thursday by highlighting a style icon who has reigned in Music, Television, Style and an overall personal brand! Queen Latifah is more than just a name, she is a CoverGirl, she is a envelope pusher and she is a living legend. 

All hail to the Queen!

The multifaceted hip hop pioneer entered our world beat boxing for Ladies Fresh in 1988 and then dropped her first album All Hail the Queen in 1989 at the young age of 19.

Dana Owens aka Queen Latifah has been one of the top crossover success stories of Hip Hop. She has not only crossed over into Hollywood, her works have been noted and awarded! She’s earned a “Golden Globe award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Image Awards, aGrammy Award, six additional Grammy nominations, an Emmy Award nomination and an Academy Award nomination.”

Check it all out on Wikipedia!

One of my favorite characters played by the Queen is Cleo from Set it Off 🙂 Her ability to completely transform into any role from character in Set it Off to Steel Magnolia’s or Chicago is remarkable.

Latifah changed the game when she not only became a CoverGirl but embarked on Queen Collection with CoverGirl.

Her red carpet looks are always classy and perfectly fitting for a queen. It showcases femininity and strength at its best from flowing floor length masterpieces to structured knee length frocks.

Now with her own talk show… The Queen enters our lives in a new light. “The hourlong talk show, produced on Sony‘s movie lot in Culver City, ranked as the second most popular debut of a talk show since “Dr. Oz” went on the air in 2009, according to preliminary audience totals released Tuesday.” Which was stated on the LATIMES.com

Queen Latifah, I marvel at your greatness and wish you continued success in the brand which is you! Here’s a tribute to a Queen highly deserving of it all.
