Claire Sulmers is one busy woman! From overseeing her multicultural digital platform to hosting events and public speaking, it’s about time she graced the cover of a magazine. WOE (Women Own Excellence) Magazine did the honors by placing Fashion Bomb Daily’s very own EIC as the Covergirl of their latest Beauty, Brains, and Business Issue.

On Saturday, June 3rd in Washington, DC., WOE Magazine teamed up with Lord & Taylor to celebrate her cover reveal. The event comprised an intimate discussion on her book The Bomb Life with “Cover Talk,” followed by a book signing and spring fashion show.

As soon as I stepped foot in the luxury retail space I was dazzled by Bombshells and Bombers who came fully dressed to impress and meet the Fashion Bombshell H.B.I.C.

Next, came the spring fashion show by Lord & Taylor. The style direction represented “beauty, brains and excellence” which was creatively executed by WOE Magazine Fashion Contributor, Tamiko White @tamikowhite. Celebrity hairstylist, Charlene Brown @charlenebrown1 brought her “Glam Team” for the models who were all represented by @roetheagency. The models were styled with many of the latest trends: pom poms accessories, pop-art patches, visors, kimonos (both men and women!), men’s gladiator sandals, loungewear, and fringe denim. As well as some continuous trends: plaids, nude tones, socks with sandals, lace, tie-dye, bomber jackets and blazers.

The room was filled with empowerment and fashion. So much that a portion of the proceeds benefited Mia Wright @miawrightinspires of “We CAN-CER vive!” foundation. She fought and survived ovarian cancer three times! Another reason to celebrate women kicking butt!

Then came what attendees had patiently waited for: Claire. She sat down with WOE Magazine Editor in Chief, Ayo Thomas @ayoempowersyou and Tamiko White to discuss her book, graduating from Harvard, life after Harvard, staying humble, and the challenges she’s faced that shaped the woman she is today.

A Q&A followed next by fans and entrepreneurs.



After attendees soaked up the EIC’s powerful words and wisdom she began her book signing. According to her excerpt on The Bomb Life she only brought 35 books with her on her way to DC and sold out of all of them.

For the Day, Claire wore a white jumpsuit from It Factor Boutique, a Balmain blazer, a Gucci logo belt, and jewelry/shoes from Lord & Taylor.

Claire will be back in DC July 30th to host Cocktails with Claire.

What do you think of Claire’s first cover launch event?
