Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Nicolette from Maryland
By Claire

It’s been a bit of a slow week here on the The Fashion Bomb, but we’re going to kick start the year in earnest with the first Bombshell of 2013, Nicolette from Maryland:

She writes, “I would describe my style as: A Colorful Classy Splash of Vintage Freshness.”

“…The 80s and 90s era inspires my style. Many clothes during the 80s and 90s era had structure, shapes, and were also very bright and colorful.”

“I am Nigerian-American and get inspired and wear a popular African cloth called “Ankara””

“I always wear vibrant and colorful clothing.”

” My outgoing personality also reflects this “bright and colorful” sense of style that I have.”

“I get 98% of my clothes from a thrift or vintage store and I usually wear clothes people do not see in a popular store or mall.”

“Two famous people I look up to,fashion wise: Janelle Monae & Rihanna.”

  3. Bree says:

    Unique style, bold and vibrant prints but the hair is very distracting

  4. DannielleS says:

    Pretty girl, okay style. Horrible wig, but she is rocking those natural looks!

  5. Coralie says:

    When I first saw the Pics with the long hair, I thought she´s Azealia Banks for a minute lol

  6. NicoleS says:

    No. No. No. I can say I like her use of colors…other than that….No. No. No.

  7. bebe says:

    Camel toe is a no.

  8. Tinu says:


  9. LMO says:

    I hate any pictures in the bathroom, especially with the toilet showing. But I loved her imagination with fashion!

  10. lola says:

    TOO DAMN LITERAL. Goodbye!!

  11. Prettigyrl78 says:

    it’s a no for me, babe…

  12. Bajan Candy says:

    The look with the shorts and bow tie was very cute.

  13. Choco aka Hipppie says:

    There was only one outfit I didn’t care for – pretty woman

  14. Empress says:

    Everyone is going up vote Bombshell because she’s Nigerian. Smh

    I’m not impressed.

  15. Empress says:


  16. J_Cutie says:

    Not bad… Good start for 2013

  17. stylengrace says:

    I respect personal style, but I’m personally not a fan. She’s dead wrong for that hair though!!!

  18. dippedingodiva says:

    Not that excited about her style. It’s okay to me a little redundant especially the shoes.

  19. Cute style, I love the outfit with the white pants and the printed maxi. Super cute!

  20. Kay J says:

    I LOVE the African patterns!!! Kente is winning!

  21. FashAnon says:

    She totally reminds me of Azealia Banks.

  22. TRUTH TELLER says:


  23. smv says:

    She has room to grow fashionwise. Keep at it. and LOOSE the wig. I mean SOLANGE was voted fashionista of the year on this site.. if nowhere else i would encourage my fellow black women to post with YOUR natural hair, permed, relaxed, not relaxed.. i think it looks better.. and most of all, it will be embraced.. lol *this is a safe place***…

  24. jonsy says:

    Love the maxi skirt!

  25. For me its some its some hits and misses. I like the kente bow clutch and belt idea but it was over kill. Over all she is a bombshell!

  26. Annoyingly Right says:

    No. And double-no to that wig

  27. SAW says:

    The weave/wigs are not a good look for her. She looks beautiful with the natural looks. Pretty girl and her style is her style not my cup up of tea

  28. Brittany says:

    She looks great with the more natural hairstyles. That Barbie hair is awful.

  29. Brittany says:

    It is lose as in get rid of not loose as in the opposite of tight.

  30. Kitty B. says:

    @Coralie, I thought the same as well

    Hits and misses for me *shrugs*

  31. Natasha says:

    “This is a safe place” :lol: on so many levels. Pretty girl, okay style.

    It’s not my style but several of her outfits really suited her and she described her approach well: mixing Western vintage with West African textiles. She did that.

    And dip-dyed hair was all the rage in ’12 (according to VibeVixen you’ll see more in ’13), she decided to keep a current trend with her unique styling. (Insert Jamaican accent) Leave ‘er.

  32. DIVA says:

    that pink print flowy skirt is ON POINT !

  33. Taneica says:

    Her natural hair is BEAUTIFUL. The wig looks flamable though :-/. I am impartial to her looks, but think she’s a beautiful girl!

  34. Style says:

    She was working that white dress. Hot.

  35. She nailed it. I love all her looks.

  36. Taylor says:

    The blue printed blouse and white pants, and the black shirt and red/orange shorts were her bests for me. I think this style fits her and is safe for her, but she should try other things as well. The wig is an absolute no ma’am.

  37. Tifani says:

    I can’t with this! While I love her use of color, her pieces were all wrong!!!

  38. Mo_Sheri10 says:

    Some hits some misses. She looks like Azealea Banks.

  39. Jamesy says:

    Very pretty girl! She looks great with the braids and natural hair, but that wig needs to be beaten, burned, then buried. I like her use of color and love the white, white legged pants with the brightly colored shirt.

  40. We all love to dress fashionably and get complemented on how well we carry ourselves. You don’t have to follow someone’s style to be fashionable, just be yourself and everything will fall into right place.

  41. Nicolette says:

    Wow! I appreciate all the comments! I will definately take it and run with it. There is always room for improvement! Thank You All =)

  42. wapagirl says:

    @ Empress: Don’t hate on Nigerians. I’m Nigerian and I actually voted that she is not a bombshell. No favortism here.

    The style is just off. Sorry.

  43. cottoncande says:

    Love her style and how she incorporates her heritage pride in many of her outfits. Bombshell!

  44. Westafricanmutt says:

    …hmmm… okay….

  45. AnnB says:

    She does look much better with her natural hair… there is room to improve…the best pic was the bathroom pic because it seemed like that is really her style… everything else appears forced.

  46. Kaygee says:

    Empress…STFU. I’m Nigerian too doesn’t mean i voted bombshell.

  47. HannahF says:

    Oh this is the last time I am going to say this. I’m sick and tired and SICK of these little girls wearing leggings as pants. They are LEGGINGS as in get a longer shirt to cover that camel toe. Stop tucking in shirts when you are wearing leggings. I don’t care how small or big you are, it always looks STANK and like a SPEEGLER ! I do like her style because she’s different, the hair is…… Killing some of the looks for me. Feeling the maxi skirt and wide leg pants

  48. Ayem says:

    This made me slightly detest bold prints… However, her weave was on the leave it in 2009 list(silly length LACEFRONTS)

  49. KBS says:

    Long weave out the limo na na na naaa nana. Def getting A banks vibe.
