FAB Actress Viola Davis Talks Self Esteem with Aunt Oprah

28 Feb

It’s hard to look at this stunning woman and imagine her having low self esteem, but like many of us, she experienced self-doubt. Listen to her tear-jerking interview with Aunt Oprah and she talks self esteem and the small joys of life.

FAB Woman Making History: Oprah Winfrey

28 Feb

Normally, these posts are started with, “Meet (insert FAB One here)”. But who hasn’t met Oprah Winfrey yet?

A living embodiment of the American Dream, Aunt Oprah has demolished race and gender barriers her whole life. From rising above her troubled childhood, thriving despite being a teen parent (her son died soon after being born)  overcoming drug use, advancing in television despite being FAB in an area and location where being FAB wasn’t considered fabulous, being one of the most generous philanthropists the world has ever seen. 

She was the world’s first FAB billionaire, and the first FAB woman to own a television network.

There are many lessons to be learned from her life, and she always has a positive pearl of wisdom to share on her shows and in interviews. She encourages us all to ‘live our best life’, and she lives that motto every day.

Do you love Oprah as much as we do? Tell us about it in the comments!

Willow Smith dosen’t have much hair to whip back and forth these days, since she  recently shaved it all off. Now it seems she’s dyed her new growth. What do you think?

FAB Woman Making History: Chanel Iman

27 Feb

Meet Chanel Iman.

Even if you didn’t know her name, you have probably seen her face on TV modeling in The Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or on a magazine at the grocery store, or on the runway modeling for the world’s top designers.

She is currently the most successful African American model, and made history in 2007 as the youngest person to appear on the cover of Vogue. She is also the first black model to walk in a Gucci fashion show for eight years.

The fashion industry is notorious for it’s lack of diversity in high fashion photos and runway shows, and not just with ethnicity. There is still a lot of work to be done in embracing different body types, which she is an advocate for.

She also does her share of charity work, and helps mentor teen girls who are moving from foster care into society.

Now that’s a FAB look!

Even though Viola Davis did not win an Oscar for Best Actress, she wins for Best Dressed!

We loved her natural hair, glowing skin, and flawless makeup. And that green dress was PERFECTION. If there was a Queen of Emerald Island, she should look like this!

Nicki Minaj:FAB, Girl! or Girl, Bye?

25 Feb

*sigh*

Nicki Minaj, who is technically a FAB artist, thought it would be a good idea to get painted blue for Vogue magazine. We think she looks like Smurfette’s sister from another mister.

    FAB Woman Making History:Cmdr. Monika Washington Stoker

    24 Feb

    Meet Commander Monika Washington Stoker.

    Like Major General Marcia Anderson, she is making military history. She was recently named Commanding Officer of The USS Mitscher, a Norfolk-based, guided missile destroyer.

    Similar to Major Anderson, she did not have initial intentions of a military career. Her dad suggested she give the military a chance, and she never looked backed. Years later her hard work paid off, and last Friday she made history as the first FAB Woman to serve as a commanding officer of an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer.

    And on top of that, she’s a mom!

    Commander Stoker with her FAB Girls!

    A quote from her, posted on www.wvec.com:

    “It says that you do whatever you want to do, whether it’s in the military or not and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t.”

    If our FAB Girls don’t take anything else away from this site, that is it!
