Judging from my header, my glaring love for all things fashion, literature, arts en général can’t be missed. Better still, it can be piqued and Taiye Selasi doubling as a style crush and author does just that!
I stumbled on her recent feature for Porter Magazine’s THE EDIT and boy do I love that bright orange jumpsuit! (styled by Helen Broadfoot ) The feature bounces off on her work as a novelist, what influences her style of writing; zooming straight to itty bits of her personal life and favorite drink to order – ‘crisp clean’ vodka and tonic combo. On the matter of love, she says one needs to have their heart broken. Joking that “in the life of a woman who travels, some men are amuse-bouche, palate cleansers, if you like…”
Her style is a mix-match of colors and I particularly like her Alexander Wang shirt, Missoni skirt, and Louboutin ensemble in the last image.
Taiye Selasi is the acclaimed author of Ghana Must Go; a globe-spanning saga of a modern dysfunctional family. A friend promised me a copy but till then, you’re welcome to share your review: firstname.lastname@example.org
