What's Black and Strappy With Cutouts All Over? Duh, Emily Ratajkowski's Maternity Swimsuit

Emily Ratajkowski has definitely tried out her fair share of trends while pregnant, proving to all of us that maternity style can be however sexy or eccentric you want it to be. Leaving some buttons undone and working with cutouts is just the start of it - it was only a matter of time before Emrata ventured somewhere on a boat in warm weather, so she could show us her latest rotation of swimsuits. The mom-to-be took her strappy Inamorata George's one-piece for a spin, which retails online for $160 and comes in five other colorways besides her chosen black. Emily completed her look with square sunglasses and her signature gold hoops, turning to the side to show off the details of her self-made design. One thing we took note of?

Kamala Harris Wore a Liquid Sequin Cocktail Dress by Yet Another Emerging Black Designer

After wearing a gorgeous purple Christopher John Rogers outfit to the inauguration, Vice President Kamala Harris attended the Celebrating America TV special wearing a chic black ensemble by another emerging Black designer. For the event, Kamala opted for a tuxedo coat and shimmery sequined dress by designer Sergio Hudson. In fact, former first lady Michelle Obama wore a plum outfit by the same designer during the inauguration earlier that afternoon. Kamala dazzled in the floor-length silk tuxedo coat and cocktail dress, and she added an 18k yellow gold and diamond David Yurman American flag lapel pin. She also accessorized with rings and earrings by Irene Neuwirth, as well as black Jimmy Choo Rory pumps. Sergio told Harper's Bazaar, "We want to be uplifted right now . . . We kept the s...

'How we can close the ethnicity pay gap,' says Selina Flavius, Black Girl Finance founder

Flavius explains how we can all help dismantle systemic money inequalities (Unsplash/Christina)“For a long time I felt Black people were unrepresented in personal finance literature or on any exisiting platforms, so in 2019 I launched Black Girl Finance as a platform to create a safe place for Black women to talk about all things personal finance.

Kamala Harris Supports a Black LGBTQ+ Designer With Her Purple Inauguration Coat

Kamala Harris, the first female, first Black woman, and first woman of South Asian descent to be elected Vice President of the United States, has arrived at the presidential inauguration in Christopher John Rogers. Her dedication to wearing Black designers since her arrival in Washington, DC (having chosen a Pyer Moss coat for a service the evening before) is incredibly meaningful. Christopher John Rogers, also an LGBTQ+ designer, shared a video of Kamala ushering in a new era at Capitol Hill alongside her husband Doug Emhoff, Joe Biden (in Ralph Lauren), and Dr. Jill Biden (in Markarian). Between the four of them, they have done well to represent emerging fashion talent, minorities, and a classic nonpartisan label with their outfit choices, painting a picture of the diverse America the...
