Got A Girl Crush On: Style Icon Oroma Elewa

With the ever-increasing popularity of ankara fabrics, over the past few years we’ve seen an overwhelming amount of interest from the world of mainstream fashion in the stylistic talents that African designers have to offer, a curiosity that was cemented with the publication of Helen Jennings’ book New African Fashion. However, no one captures the diversity and behind-the-scenes culture of African creatives across the globe quite like Oroma Elewa.

As editor-in-chief and creative director of Pop’Africana - the quintessential bible on global African fashion and the culture behind it - Nigerian-born Elewa casts a much needed and refreshing lens on the diversity and complexities of the individuals and talents who, globally, are re-defining and re-shaping the constructs of various African identities.

Fittingly, this highly talented diaspora darling is just as diverse aesthetically as her originally biannual, soon-to-be digital, publication.

Oroma Elewa is not just a stunning personality with a wardrobe to match, but a creative force to be reckoned with.

Got a Girl Crush On: Olympic cycling babe, Julie Krasniak

Fact number one: The internet is filled with, and is a complete sucker for photos of girls on bicycles. Fact number two: One of my biggest peeves are photos of girls on bicycles that you know for damn sure don’t belong to them. You know the images I’m talking about. Though the image above might appear to fall into the “beautiful female on bicycle not belonging to her” category, do not be fooled.
The lovely lady you see is one Julie Krasniak, and the bicycle that accompanies her in the photograph is the one she will be riding in Olympic preparation and the French national time trials. Shouts to all the ladies putting in work.

Got a Girl Crush On: Winona Ryder in high school

“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”
