Zelda Wynn Valdes was the first black female fashion designer to own her own boutique. Her famous, figure hugging silhouette was worn by stars such as Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Joyce Bryant, Maria Cole, Edna Robinson and later superstars like Gladys Knight and opera diva Jessye Norman. She also designed dresses for legendary figures like Marlene Dietrich and Mae West.
Valdes came up with the costume for the Playboy Bunny which remains the same to this day.
i’ll be like 40 w/no kids and people will say “aw i’m so sorry for you” and i’ll be like how was the fucking wiggles reunion tour asshole i went to italy last week for fun and didn’t have to hire a sitter
This is a very sad mentality. To think oneself more important than that of progeny is the sign of a failed human life.
so the wiggles concert wasn’t as good as you thought it would be huh
Just in case…
Stay safe, please. If you are in trouble, or think you might be; if you hear anything strange inside or outside your home please do not hesitate to contact the police. Check your cars through the windows before you get in them. Don’t go anywhere alone. Lock your windows and doors. Before you enter your house, check for signs of forced entry or tampering- this can include scratch or tool marks by locks or on the glass or a loose handle, indicating that the lock has been broken. Retreat to a safe, public, crowded place sit by the counter- this makes it easier for the staff and security cameras to see you. Call the police and notify them, ask to be picked up and then submit a statement. If in doubt, please call the police.
