“It’s my rap that rocks this party/I’m a hijack and jack your body/This is not an erotic interlude/Keep in mind I move multitudes/The Asiatic black woman, hardcore beat drumming/Its hard to keep a good woman down, so I keep coming.”–Queen Latifah, “Come into my House.”

Hey Boos!
For this week’s Style File, I decided to take a look at R&B singing, Hairspray acting, rapping Covergirl…


Queen Latifah!
While she may slip a little with her hair game…

And her casual style can be a bit…rough…

But, when she shows out, she brings it in gorgeous, flattering outfits that suit her voluptuous frame.
Let’s take a look:
On the carpet, the Queen seems to favor long dresses in solid colors…

…with V-necks that draw the eye downward, and thick straps that conceal supportive, uplifting undergarments.
On more casual occasions, she rocks streamlined dark boot cut jeans…

…accented with loose v-neck tops in floral and exotic prints. Notice her jeans are *not* skinny…the bootcut style balances out her lower half assuring there’s a straight line from her hips to her shoe tips.
While she mixes up on occasion, the Queen seems to favor tons…

…and tons…

and tons…

…of slimming, svelte black outfits whether it’s an Oscar ready gown or a more casual top with capris.
