Its time to celebrate stylish extraordinary women. Only a few years ago, it was believed that women who loved fashion had nothing to offer intellectually especially if you were in the arts. That impression was something that was accepted in the arts but that all changed.
Today we celebrate a woman who is not only stylish but brilliant and she is one of the most amazing authors to come out of Africa. Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, is brilliant, smart and un-apologetically stylish, she’s a woman of her own unique fashion style; What i particularly like about her is her unique natural hairstyles which she proudly shows; This is to show us that she’s never afraid to be herself.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche is most famous for her books, Purple Hibiscus, Half of a yellow sun and Americannah. Now, the author already has so many other interesting books but these one’s won her awards and world wide recognition.
“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story” Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche
This quote was from her TED talk that had to do with stereotypes “The danger of a single story” which is a big problem in the world today. The author is not one to hold on to her thoughts, she lets them flow, blessing the world with her knowledge.
While we can write a book on her accomplishments as an author, she is also a strong supporter of her country and continent and her style is mainly a collection of fabulous pieces from Nigerian Designers.
All hail the “pen queen”, see some of her most elegant looks so far;
