Fashion and beauty rebelliousness has been a tool Yemi Alade uses deliberately and with dexterity. Her neo-punk and outre-African fashion and beauty choices may be in most modern girls’ catalog of wild things, but their commercialism is an alluring compensation.

She combined a medium tippy-toe extra-long cornrows with tiny-cut beaded bangs, and bronzed blush-tone makeup, to deliver sophisticated culture with sass.
The Egyptian Princess inspired look appears to be her most African-Chic yet. And she’s not the only one smiling right now. Most of our Editors are showing up to work looking like this next week.
