Last week I had the sincere pleasure of meeting the lovely Melanie Fiona before Black Girls Rock! to find out about a few of her fashion and beauty must haves:

When it comes to designers, she said, [I] love, love, love, the lines of …Alexander McQueen. Nothing fits like a basic black dress by McQueen. I love other designers like Isabel Marant and Mara Hoffman. I love the colors and the lines of Gucci. I think Gucci is a good, classic high end brand that just gets it right.”

A few beauty secrets? For her skin, she says, “I’ve been using Clinique. It helps wash my makeup off, and it’s reasonably priced.” And what about that gorgeous hair?!? She divulged, “Recently I’ve been using Ojon. It’s really good and made of natural nut extract, so it’s really nourishing for the hair. I also love Kerastase. The mask is the absolute best mask I’ve ever used!”
See the full interview here:

Melanie was super sweet and fun! We posed for a couple ‘gangsta’ shots at the end:

I clearly had no idea how to do a good gangsta pose. I tried though. Ha.

At any rate, I hope to keep bringing you more Fashion Bomb TV!

How’d I do?
