• As you know, we were all on hand at last night’s Rolling Out Mirror Mirror awards (fab times!), and were able to catch up with the very warm and gracious Jennifer Williams. In our quick chat, she revealed plans to further expand her cosmetics line, Lucid. “Yes, I definitely plan to expand it. I’m working on nail polish, and I’m going to expand it beyond that. It’s just– I don’t have a licensing deal, so I’m doing it all by myself, and it takes a little more work. But I think it’s more rewarding… I do want to get into blushes and foundations. I think as black women, we need a line that represents us,” she explained. Williams was also wearing Zara for the evening, but named another affordable spot she likes to shop, “You know what? I love Topshop as well. Topshop is amazing. I feel like they have classic pieces, but if you want to do a trend, but you don’t know how long that tend is gonna last, but you don’t wanna really pay that much, I think Topshop is a great option.” Love it!

• In an interview with Vogue UK Jourdan Dunn discussed her experience being a working mom in the fashion industry. She revealed she went back to work a mere nine months after giving birth, but felt no pressure to quickly return. Dunn also said the folks at her agency were very supportive. “The models with children would make sure I was eating properly and gave me a private area to breastfeed, and Heidi Mount, who has a child, is great. “She’s going to be my advice line when I move to New York.” Beautiful!
