Elle Varner Wears African Kente Cloth Dress for Her Only Wanna Give It To You Music Video
Neo-soul singer, songwriter Elle Varner wore a haute Ghanaian Kente cloth strapless dress for her music video, Only Wanna Give It to You featuring J. Cole. CulturalToast.com loves how Elle added a bright orange blazer to her look. Her stylist, @Wourivice did a excellent job styling her for the video shoot. The Asante Kente is often linked to the people of Ghana. CulturalToast.com loves that rich African cultural heritage is pouring into mainstream media! Gotta love that support! The Kente cloth is handmade fabric woven of silk and cotton and was once made for official Royal wear of the Asante Kingdom of Ghana. Today the Kente cloth is native to the Akan people of Ghana and Ivory Coast. Check out the video treatment for Elle’s new single, Only Wanna Give It To You below…
*UPDATE: Thanks to the e-mails received we discovered that Elle Varner is wearing a Patricia Field teacup, priced at $148.
