“The beauty that pleases the eye is a frail, nothing more than a fleeting illusion… but that beauty capable of pleasing the heart can endure endlessly.” Those where the words of Adah clearance of GOTTAY PHOTOGRAPHY when he stepped in the shoot location. He further said his reasons for those words were simply because most queens would lighten up their skin to be attractive but that my black skin is a treasure to behold. Blushing and feeling encouraged, I couldn’t help but throw gratitude at his feet.
This was few weeks back when I was having my handover shoot. Ugochukwu victor of VUGO MAKEUP ARTISTRY and GOTTAY collaborated with me on this one. The essence of the photoshoot was to signify a successful reign through pictures that depicts beauty with purpose.
Bare to beauty simply means seeing beauty from a minimal source that is just sufficient. It explains the relationship between me and the needy I put smiles on thier faces.
As an african queen, I had to attach the beauty of our fashion & culture to my representation. Using a full african material (ankara) to play style a dress on my body. And yes its not a sewn dress, it was constructed and styled by me and assisted by my fondly called boo boo gaga, Queen promise.
